In my book you're a bodybuilder if your primary goal in the gym is to build a muscular, symmetrical physique.

 Whether you succeed or not (or at what level you find yourself) that – to me – is pretty immaterial. So, as bodybuilders we should always be open to new training philosophies and regularly do research on the supplements we're taking.

Resistance Leads to Growth in Many Ways!

HardworkResistance Leads to Growth in Many Ways!

Resistance is defined as the opposition offered by one thing to another. In bodybuilding, resistance isn’t something we’re supposed to run away from.

I figured most people would go the traditional route and write scientific articles. I thought I would come from a more humorous parody angle to give a little variation. Maybe a little risqué for mainstream reading but it was fun to write ;) and I'm sure some of the more immature among us will find it entertaining.
