Shortly after joining the world of muscle construction, many people develop a muscle evaluation OCD. We start judging the physical development of the people we meet.

When you talk to your grandmother about bodybuilding, even she thinks of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was the guy who made the muscle flexing festival popular.

| December 26, 2014 by Truth Seeker |

The market has been heavily flooded with bodybuilding supplements which in theory have exceptional muscle building capabilities.
