There’s a constant focus on what is new, flashy and trendy. For example. P90X, Insanity, Zumba, Shake weight. Just kidding on the shake weight. Still wanted to see if you were still reading.

Day 1Close grip pushups 10 reps (Can be done on knees or on an incline surface)
Muscle Dysmorphia is defined as a disorder that deals with obsession over the perceived muscularity of one’s body. Simply, it is the psychology that one’s body is too thin and not muscular enough.

It is categorized as a branch of obsessive compulsive disorder and is VERY COMMON in today’s gyms and society…much more than we think. I will admit that some define M.D.

Well to understand the most neglected and challenging plane of motion, you must understand the other main two.
