    How can you pick a favorite? They all go together for a bigger purpose and goal. I love being able to read and post nutritional questions in our Forum, and then stopping by BodySpace to meet up with likeminded individuals that help keep me accountable to my goals.

    If I need a little pump me up before the gym I stop by the Bodybuilding.com Video Network and watch the bodybuilders and fitness gurus showing me a new workout routine. There are too many favorite hot spots on the site, you just have to take advantage of all the great opportunities it has to offer.
