Ep. 85 - Special Snowflakes, Steroids, Comparison Syndromes & Food In Relationships

The whole team at RNT is on the line today as we tackle some interesting topics in roundtable fashion!

We go through the following:

1. Why you’re not a special snowflake
2. Muscle building best practices as a client
3. Should you use anabolic steroids
4. Male vs female body image 
5. The use of food as a clutch in relationships

This is a hard hitting episode as we all go deep into topics that are often skirted over, and I know there’ll be something here for everyone!
