Weightlifting vs. Cardio: Which is Better for Fat Loss?

Exercise & Training, Weight Loss
What’s up everybody, I know a lot of you guys only care about weight but hey, remember that losing weight doesn’t make any sense if most of the weight you lose comes from muscle.

What The Greek God Fitness Program Is All About

Muscle Building
Most of us have our respective fitness idols. It can be anyone from comic book superheroes like Superman or Wolverine, to television and movie warriors such as those in Game of Thrones and 300.

New motivational video is up on the channel.

So I think we'll have the next Ronnie Coleman. I think the main motivation for me with the whole bodybuilding history experience is knowing that there is no such thing as the perfect body, but I'm gonna chase it as hard as I can.

Video transcript: Have you ever went out for something or tried to do something and when you got home quietly in your room you knew that you had that much more that you could’ve gave, but you didn’t want to look ugly because your girlfriend was looking, or your boyfriend was looking and you didn’t want to look embarrassed.
