Step training became so popular that now the exercise is often associated with aerobic fitness and so-called muscle toning.

Your muscles are burning and you ask yourself, can I make it through this one?

Your first inclination is to keep training—go through the motions and get it done. Because you’ve been here before, and you remind yourself that you always feel better when it’s over.

As the most widely used drug in BB’ing, testosterone’s rise to dominance did not take place by chance.
