Muscle Growth


With the introduction of such modern conveniences such as the automobile, remote control, and

even the electric toothbrush people are relying on technology to do everything for them. With a

generation growing up in todays society physical tasks have almost become obsolete. Tasks such

as even going shopping and going out to visit a friend can be done from the comfort of your own

computer. With this sedentary lifestyle, muscular size will almost be unnecessary, except for the

athlete who wants to succeed in sports. To the non-athlete, there will be no reason to leave the

house because everything that you need will be at your fingertips, you will not have to get up and

do anything. Any type of exercise is good for the body and muscles. Muscle growth is essential if
