Focus on your upper body i.e, arms, shoulders, back, chest, and abs. Working on these parts will help you achieve visible results fast, especially the arms, shoulder, and back. When you’ll see that you are getting results, it will Push you to Work Harder.

‘You are what you Eat’
Whenever we hear the word – ‘Diet’, we always get a feeling that we’ll have to stop eating everything that we eat now and we gotta eat a lot of vegetables and boiled food.
