Gymchat 252 - Alpha Aesthetics (Personal Development In The 21st Century with Omar Atlas)

Ready to become number one?


How do you become the 'alpha dog' - the leader of the pack? And how do you use strength training to do it?

This week we're exploring this enigmatic area - the intersection of bodybuilding and personal development. Tackling this is the wonderful Omar 'Bromar' Atlas, joined by Personal Trainer and Strength Athlete Josh Hewett. Fantastic.


NB : We'd love to hear your questions and comments. If there's a particular subject you'd like Omar and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat and leave a comment or jump in the Hangout and ask them directly.

And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
