So if you stop lifting all the workout you did is for nothing?

After stopping lifting you lose the strength and muscles you gained right?

I've been extremely skinny/small for my entire life

Hello, I have absolutely no appetite for food, I find some foods to be repulsive and there is only a limited range of foods i'd eat. I was always the smallest one in my classes in school, and it would give me social anxiety and therefore making me depressed. When I was 16 ish, I started my own...

Jealous ostheopath

Hi guys, I have been going on a regular basis to an osteopath and I could see that he was bothered by my being more and more muscular. He was making some disparaging comments wrapped as professional advice. Like "You don't know what you are doing at the gym". My personal trainer told me I know...

Giving up on bodybuilding after my first competition

Hey guys, So I’m currently 3 weeks out and at this point I’m limping to the finish line. I’m 18 and this is my first show for men’s physique. The dieting and the cost of everything, including food, gas, supplements, and the “extra” supplements are taking a toll on me. Also I’ve pretty much shut...

22 Years of Sedentarism. Help me live.

It's quite difficult to explain my body type. At this point, I'm an amorphous mass of weirdly allocated fat. So, a little bit of context. I've always been a shame to my Puertorican ancestors. I'm anti-social, unfit, and most sinfully, one "moon-tan" away from being albino. I've achieved this...
