Hey #gymrat, how you doing? Everyone has their own motivations for working out. Mine are mostly stress relief — there’s nothing like getting away from the computer screen and just disconnecting. But let’s be honest — part of my motivation is also wanting to bulk up. Just a bit.


I like to think I have realistic expectations. I’m not looking to take on Arnold anytime soon, but a bigger chest, broader shoulders, they’re things I aspire to. And with some time and a little bit of effort, I think I can achieve them. One protein shake at a time.


The guys at Old Spice reached out to me to make an introduction to their new line of shampoos and hair styling products, and I have to say, I may have found some inspiration. Because you know, bulking up isn’t just about the biceps and the booty, it’s also about the hair. I’ve always been a fan of big, wild crazy hair, and as such I’m always looking for volumizing products.


For this post, I took inspiration from the line’s Bulk Up Full Body 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner, which can be yours for a budget friendly $7.99 on
