My best friend got a small weight set in highschool and we got a book called Arnold's Modern Bodybuilding Encylopedia....it has been an addiction ever since!
Why I Love it
I love the idea of being in control of my life in all aspects. Bodybuilding allows me to control what I look like and how I feel. This is the same as going to school for me. I would not feel well rounded if I were merely successful in one aspect of life.
Another great thing about bodybuilding is that you take it with you wherever you go. Everyone knows you take care of yourself and put in the effort to look the way you do. I get inspired when I see someone in great shape...bodybuilding is just a part of me.
