Re: How Old Are You?

19, the charles atlas course is the first course to ever really get me an awesome body.

Next i'm following an older school weight lifting course, just to build on it some more and shock the muscles, then i'lm going back to atlas.

All of my weight lifter friends are amazed at my body.

Re: 100 Pushups, Etc>

Re: Women and beachwear.

Haha I have not traded in my swimwear for speedos.

I do notice a lot more attention at the beach.

But really, despite what even hot girls will tell you, personality accounts for a lot, make sure he's working on both his social skills, and his looks ;)

Re: is twice daily necessary

I wondered the same thing when I first went through it, I was scared of overtraining too. I followed it twice a day and saw nothing but amazing results, I would advise following it, I think that it's harder to overtrain, because your body is controlling the exact amount of weight being used. If you ...
