  1. Embarrassment

    Embarrassment is an emotional state of intense discomfort with oneself, experienced upon having a socially unacceptable act or condition witnessed by or revealed to others. Usually some amount of loss of honor or dignity is involved, but how much and the type depends on the embarrassing situation. It is similar to shame, except that shame may be experienced for an act known only to oneself. Also, embarrassment usually carries the connotation of being caused by an act that is merely socially unacceptable, rather than morally wrong.

    Bodybuilding motivation 1. I am tearing something more, I am tearing something more. Listen man, put the poster of a beautiful girl in a bikini on the beach. And on a stationary bike or on a treadmill. Go, run, go to meet her. Know that if you don’t give up, you will definitely come to your dream. 2. Download muscle and earn money. Become a muscular rich man, and you will no longer need to meet girls. Because money and muscle will do everything for you. 3. Girls and women love muscles to such an extent. That they themselves begin to pump them. 4. Boost your sexuality. 5. 1. Look at the gym as a fun park. 2. Shaking muscles, look at this scale. This is a green scale of enthusiasm, and at the end of it there is a dark orange overtraining, after it a red scale of stagnation. The main thing is not to go beyond the territory of enthusiasm. 6. Take a look at this dumbbell rack, from the smallest to the largest. This hierarchy of strength makes a person strong, an ever-increasing thirst for desire and uncontrollable desire. Do not overestimate yourself, for the body will cruelly punish you for your frivolity. Go through all stages of bodybuilding in an honest way. The first step is knowledge of bodybuilding. The second step is the simulators. The third step is dumbbells, barbells and fitness equipment. 7. When you swing muscles, repeat as a mantra: shorts, T-shirts, girls. 8. Swing to make it nice to look in the mirror. 9. Swing to live without fear. 10. If you came to the gym to just pump up, then you came to waste time and money. If you came to the gym to swing, then you came here to grow, to truly grow. 11. Bodybuilding is the only cure for many problems and diseases. 12. The large muscles close their mouths tightly to onlookers. 1. The winged back will overshadow the sun. 2. The chest will have buffers, the masters will envy. 3 and 4. At the feet, that is, at the quadriceps and biceps of the hips: fighting ability, stamping your foot, you can break the ground, just like hitting the ground with your hands, a piece of land will fly up into the sky and you can kick like a ball. And don’t forget to rock your butt, the female gaze will be glad, so they will want to play a bongo solo on them, he will be honored with his well-deserved throne, and will not be split in relations with the girls, all this is necessary not for fun, everything is honestly there is no cola. 5. Deltas will be like shells, they will be like trapeziums like a lion's mane. 6. Biceps like huge globes. 7. And triceps will not be ashamed to show, and give a powerful blow. 8. The forearms will give an iron grip, you will tear evil like paper, thereby giving the way to good, you will hear the ears of praise for courage to recognize, because you yourself know that nobility is to everyone's liking, they do not like to endure poison. 9. Caviar will be like hearts. 10. The press, like a magnet for women, tells you this: pump the muscles of the press assiduously, and eat whatever you want without shame and embarrassment, only joy and admiration will be your answer. If you don’t become strong, then for sure the sexual macho. Remember that we are men better than women, ladies have only developed breasts and priests, you look at them with a weak spirit and body, and in response they say: look, look, I won’t give, I won’t give. And we have so many charms to attract the female sex, dare while you are young, your muscles, like knightly armor of nobility, will stand behind you like a mountain. 13. Download the press: there will be sex. Download triceps: your mutant triceps will hypnotize girls whenever you move your hand. Swing to such an extent that the girls would like to hug you and kiss you. 14. You hear the screaming girls and women with delight in this room where bodybuilders are posing. Yes, you hear the piercing sound of a true, sincere attitude towards just such a type of men. Strive for it. 15. Grow bait for women. When you swing muscles, repeat to yourself: we grow charms. 16. Bodybuilding begins with your favorite muscles, and your favorite exercises. 17. The only thing that a girl does not need to be rocked is: chest and ass. So just the same, all fat and mass should be collected there. Having gained the necessary mass in these places, it is worth doing a little pumping to create elasticity. 18. At the beginning of women's fitness and bodybuilding, you should never swing your chest and avoid those exercises from which the buttocks are strongly pumped up. Since the breasts are reduced and turned into a torso, the buttocks are reduced and turned into stone. Better to devote more time to the quadriceps and biceps of the hips and the press. Since you need to consume a lot of calories. And fat will look for a new place where muscles do not pump. That is, in the chest and buttocks. As soon as there is enough mass for you, dear ladies in these areas. You can safely do special exercises for these two muscles, that is, the chest and buttocks, and they will acquire a voluminous, attractive shape. Exercises to create volume and elasticity, no more.

Ero music The groans and orgasms of the beloved girl, from which she sings during sex with her beloved man, are the best erotic-romantic music in the world only for a real man. Make your singer sing with happiness, from light relaxing romance to mega hardcore hardcore. Make her perform the highest and loudest notes and melodies of joy from which glasses will break. Record a platinum album, diamond disc, and at least one gold disc in your memory. Explode her vagina, in excess of an ultra-powerful, turbo-mega orgasm, equal in strength to a thermo-nuclear bomb so that it flies out for a couple of minutes. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
