Holy fuck that has got to be hard.  I never even imagined doing BTN military presses while squatting.

He is quite vascular.  That vein on his left arm (right side from our perspective) is nuts.

2 interesting articles about undereating, a common problem among active women. 
Because every woman’s caloric requirements are different, you should always listen to your body and to how you feel above any number of calories you come up with. You may be eating the precise number of calories that a scientific formula advises, but you feel terrible - if this happens it’s important to listen to your body first and foremost and make the necessary adjustments to your diet.

The next person who makes a joke about my pole dancing and calls me a stripper, I’m going to show them this photo and say, “You may or may not take me seriously, but just know that I can probably crush your tiny little skull with my thigh muscles.”

There’s nothing I don’t love about this.

Yoga has many health and fitness benefits - both for the body and the mind. The postures, or asanas, that yogic teachings recommend provide a low-impact way to work your body, and will help to develop focus and stillness in both body and mind, strengthening you from the inside out.
Yoga can be practised by anyone and will:
restore your optimal flexibility and strength
help to create a leaner, more toned body
enhance your overall body alignment and posture
help to deepen your breathing
encourage you to relax and de-stress
restore your sense of balance - both physical and emotional
heighten your performance in both other sports and everyday activities
There are many variations, each with a slightly different emphasis. However, underlying all types of yoga is the belief that good health depends on a holistic approach to life - recognising and working to enhance the mind-body-spirit connection. It is this that sets yoga apart from other forms of exercise.
