posted on May 18th, 2013 ·


So, you think your 20 inches biceps are huge? You probably need to check out Greg Valentino. At one time, Greg’s upper arms are 27 to 28 inches (about 71 centimeters).

posted on May 4th, 2013 ·


My cousin brother has bought me some Larabars from overseas.  He is a big fan of this so called all-natural healthy bar.  I have tried it myself and here are some interesting facts:

  • Unlike Powerbar, it does not give you 40 gram of protein.

This push up workout works more on the arms and back muscles, instead of chest.
