Does Scooby Do Legs?

Does Scooby Do Legs? If you are asking this question, what you probably mean to ask is: Does Scooby workout legs like I do? The answer is probably not!  Why?  I know I always come back to harping on bodybuilding goals but once again its relevant.  Your goals for legs are probably different than mine.  In fact the goals for my upper body are different than goals for my lower body.  Nothing says that you need to have the same goal for all body parts, in fact, it doesn't always make sense - it doesn't for me.   For upper...

Welcome 9gag! For the few of you who havent heard, the following was posted on 9g9g: Scooby's chest looks like a woman in doggystyle Do I care that they find this funny? Of course not! Welcome 9gag!

Best Way To Workout Chest

Best Way To Workout Chest The best place that money can buy to workout your chest to maximize your chest development and maximize your safety is also free - its your FLOOR!  The floor safely limits your range of motion so that you can avoid injury and workout week after week, year after year.  Its this kind of consistency that  is required to build a massive chest, it happens a little at a time.  Honestly, my chest developed so incredibly slowly over my 30 years of lifting that I hardly noticed.

When indoor volleyball players move to playing in the sand they are attacked by what is affectionately known as the "sand monster". They cannot run, they cannot jump - every time...

The world is my gym!

Free gym membership!! Thats right, completely free with no contracts or obligations. The world is my gym and I am willing to share it with you. Here you see my cardio machine (a bicycle), my ab workout station, my chest machine (the ground), and my back machine (pullup bars of various heights)! Even if you have a gym membership, give these free air workouts a try as they are truly liberating. Not only that but they force you into a totally different workout mode which gives your muscles that shock they need. Too easy? Try clapping pullups and clapping pushups...
