  by Christian Duque Bodybuilding fans can be very touchy feely and have zero concept of personal space. They don’t care about the pandemic and they don’t care if they come off as looking weird AF. For some it’s all about being as close to the bodybuilders as possible. Some want to be so close […]

Nick Trigili Calls Hunter Labrada Lazy! – IronMag Bodybuilding & Fitness Blog
