Budget, injuries, time restrictions… any number of things can stand in your way. You can either allow these restraints to become excuses to give up, or you can adapt to them and create hierarchies that allow you to keep progressing.
The name's Joe. Some people call me JoeFlah. Die hard Chicago fan, sans the Sox, through and through. When I'm not injured, I like to lift iron repeatedly. I do way too much research on exercise and nutrition for my own good.
