Women Who Fear They Will End Up Looking Like Men After They Start Lifting Weights
This subject has become quite viral lately, but I have had it in the back of my mind for a long time. This is my perspective on it all.
I don’t know how many times I’ve heard these different excuses when women talk about starting training in a gym:
They realize that nothing great comes without a great deal of hard work. I’m honored to be a part of a distinguished team that creates iconic products and employs passionate people with the same competitive warrior spirit that I’ve lived by.”
At nine years of age, Julien Greaux decided he wanted to be an action movie star. He was born in Brittany, France, and raised in St. Barth, a small island in the French West Indies not known for lights, cameras, or much action. Fortunately, Julien had a warrior spirit. He began studying martial arts and chiseling his body with weights. Julien practiced judo, Thai boxing and Shotokan karate for over twenty-five years.

The Working Horse Principle
By Anders J Eskilsson
Let’s look back at the 2013 IFBB New York Pro as the competitors are starting to fill up on stage at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center. There is excitement in the audience already, but some will experience something really unexpected this evening.
Good Health or Good Bodybuilding?
“I predict that bodybuilding will become the chief form of systematic exercise and physical activity, and that it will come to be looked upon as one of the greatest forces in the field of preventative medicine.” — Joe Weider, 1950
When Joe Weider famously wrote those words over six decades ago the United States economic engine was running full speed ahead as a result of the boost it received from World War II, the general health of the American public was a relative non-issue, and the outside world’s view of the bodybuilder was one of respect and admiration as they saw men who were the personification of what dedication to training, nutrition, and hard work could achieve.
El Fisicoculturismo - Un Deporte Narcisista?
El culturismo es el deporte que todos conocemos y amamos, pero a menos que usted sea un competidor o un entusiasta, el público en general no entiende el compromiso abrumador involucrado; la sociedad en general no entiende o aprecia el compromiso a la perfección. Pero una de las razones que nuestro deporte no gana popularidad es porque la mayoría de la gente lo asocia con el narcisismo y las drogas. En mi artículo, gustaría analizar estos factores y pasar algún tiempo en reflexión honesta.

The Law of Opportunity
If we were to look at the top athletes in the sport and single out a reason for why particular individuals have been able to outperform the rest of the field I believe that the general consensus would be genetics. We would conclude that the athletes at the head of the class happened to be blessed with the right set of parents that allowed them to hit the genetic lottery – that they are genetic outliers.
