In between the sessions, he aimed to clarify the situation, and shed light on his determination to fitness and “road to recovery.” Even, during this difficult condition he has continued putting in his all and ensuring that he works out.

The 29-year-old bodybuilder said, “So you guys know, I train pretty much still like RP strength and now I’ve read some comments.
