Lifting pals? :)
Looking for some heavy lifting pals:) I'm new to lifting, but love it already! I still don't know a lot about lifting and could use some friends to help me out. I'm doing strong lifts 5x5.
Weight lifters, calorie help! Please!
I am so confused in figuring out how much I should eat.
