Zach G.

Background

Only lifting three months. Read to see how bodybuilding literally saved my life. I know I'm considerably smaller and less experienced than most of your writers, but I've done my research and I don't write anything unless I know what I'm talking about. I'm 166lbs now, hoping to break a semi-lean 200 after winter. I couldn't live without bodybuilding.com, I feel like part of a family. This isn't a "I'll just BS my way through this article and get some cheap supplements" thing. This is my life! Name: Zach G.
