The Scientific Secret of Muscle Growth [Procrastinate on This!]

If I continue to work out and reach my peak, I’m always going to look like a short athlete–as opposed to a long and lean ballerina or a Xena: Warrior Princess, which is A-OK by me, but not necessarily what women’s exercise magazine are advertising when it comes to working out.
