Insecurities

I've always been very insecure in my masculinity - I never really had anyone to look up to. Because of this I find it very difficult to be confident in myself and even get to the gym. If any of you alphas are willing to mentor me or have any advice, please PM me.

I'm not sure about you guys, but when I hit a plateau I always begin to loose my motivation and commitment that I've had from day one. One thing I realized I could do is focus more on taking baby steps to improve myself as opposed to tracking my progress merely by lifting 5 more lb's then last...

Love lifting

It's funny cause if you would've told me I would absolutely love lifting and everything about it 6 months ago I would've laughed in your face. Lifting has become a big and fun hobby in my life that I believe I will enjoy for awhile. It's nice to put work in and get rewarded for your hard work....

Who motivates you to be the best bodybuilder you can? A pro bodybuilder? Your parents? Friends? Girls? Personally my motivation comes from Steve Cook, Zyzz and wanting to be healthy. How about you?
