You have to be 18 to go to a gym but what age can you have a full muscular body and keep it for the rest of our life.

    11/12. I remember being really interested in health when I was in grade 6, I'd do push-ups, wake up in the morning and jump rope, I even remember drinking raw eggs (*no current animal product consumer*), lol. I lost interest then became interested again in Grade 8, when dead prez came out with 'Let's Get Free' and they had a track called 'Be Healthy'. Since then, it's been on and off.

    Hmm....because I never did it for "achievement" purposes outside of high school. It's been off and on. Mostly, I worked out at the end of a shft at my job just as a stress reliever.

    It wasn't until around February that I REALLY started taking it serious. And once I moved to NY in May, the gym down the street from my apt has given all the fuel I need.

    Lost like 2-4 inches and like 15 pounds. Feeling real good for the first time in awhile.

    19. Some of y'all already know the story but I'll repeat it. After a few years I was benching 315 developed a good size, started doing calisthenics instead of going to the gym, and I still have the same size but I'm more toned. 🤬 a gym
