Will Roelly Winklaar Rule at the 2019 Olympia?

by Christian Duque

First and foremost, everyone knew my prediction for this year, the defending champion repeating and Curry at runner-up.

by Matt Weik

They utilize various items such as compression shirts, shorts, and pants. Sure, there are more benefits to using such compression apparel like helping to prevent injuries, but now researchers have been looking at the performance enhancement abilities as well.

em>by Christian Duque

Sometimes a reporter bites off a little more than he can chew and sometimes all the damage control in the world, simply won’t put the toothpaste back into the tube. I’m not going to out the reporter, but suffice it to say, he’s the biggest name in social media bodybuilding reporting and he made the colossal mistake of including Zach “King” Khan, or ZKK as his real fans call him, in a list of bodybuilders who failed to live up to the hype.

Are Your Social Media Posts a Good Representation of Who You Are?

by Matt Weik

If social media platforms were to remove all types of engagement, would the quality of your posts change? We are all in the fitness industry (or at least some of you are a regular in the gym and care about your health and fitness), and while we like to show off our hard work in the gym, are our social media posts really a good representation of who we are? I want you to think about this for a minute. I know with certainty that this article is going to upset a lot of people and I’m more than ok with that because if this upsets you, it was probably directed at you to read.
