4 Myths Why Weight Training is Holding You Back

Many of us think that we have to have certain equipment, a certain space, and a certain level of energy in order to start working out. In many cases this is one of your excuses that put off exercising because you believe you need to have it look a certain way.

Now due to the secondary lifestyle and our current situation of needing to stay at home many people are left with needing a creative way to stay healthy.
