Pushing through to a new extreme.

Bodybuilding is all about building quality muscle. That means adhering to a diet and training routine that’s going to bring your physique to the next level. There are a ton of different methods that can be used to get to that end game, but it’s certainly not something that’s going to happen over night. But looking strong is simply not enough. Sure, it’s great to look the part, but actually being the part should be a bodybuilder’s goal as well. Athletic performance should be a primary goal on par with building up muscle. It’s the philosophy that Mike Rashid lives by.

Mike Rashid is a well known and regarded man in the fitness industry. Not only does he offer advice and opinions on numerous fitness topics, but also offers up his own philosophical views on how to be an alpha in this day and age.
