With 2014 winding down, I’d like to present to my readers the ten most popular articles of the year on my website. I’m also going to list 40 additional articles that are worth reading from 2014 (this way you have the top 50 articles). This has been a kickass year in terms of content. I’d like to offer a big thanks to all of my guest contributors and interviewees, and a huge thanks to all of the readers and fans who share my articles, send me before/after pics, and tag me on social media. Without you, the blog definitely wouldn’t be what it is today. I don’t know how I’ll top this in 2015 but of course I will try my best.

Yoga and Pilates are good forms of training. But if you want long and lean muscles, lift weights. Click HERE to find out why lifting weights is better suited for actually lengthening muscle and leaning out the body than Yoga or Pilates.
