Danial Samar

Background

What got me started:
From when I was 12, I had always wanted to start bodybuilding. But my parents suggested that I wait 'til I was a bit older, so that it would not stunt my height. So, I forgot about weight training for about 4 years. Then after watching something about it on T.V, my dream came back to reality. The week after, I headed on over to Big 5, and bought my very first home gym. Soon after, I became addicted to bodybuilding. It became a way of life for me. For some unknown reasons, I even started doing better in school (not like I was doing bad). I like to think of bodybuilding as my "Anti-drug". (hehe)

  • Ab Simulators!

    Let me start off by saying that I did not buy into this 'fab', my Mom did. After seeing tons of advertisements, commercials, and seeing them in stores, some people get the idea that they work just as good as they say.

  • Asthma And Cardio/Weightlifting!

    Asthma has always been an enemy of mine. I have had it since I was 3 years old. When I started bodybuilding, I would have to occasionally stop and take a puff (not weed!) of my inhaler.

  • Picking The Right Gym!

    Whatever the case, not every fitness facility on every street corner is going to adhere to the needs of every particular person.

  • Sleeping Tips!

    Sleeping is the most important part of training. During sleep your body rebuilds. Without enough sleep you will not be growing as much as you would with enough sleep.

  • Cutting Or Bulking?

    Each time I went and took a gander, I ended up getting lost and walking away with nothing. Well, enough with the mumbo jumbo, and let's get it on.

  • Xenadrine, Hydroxycut, Or Ripped Fuel?
