    i wanted to make this post for those interested in fitness. you can post anything, whether that be sports match you saw , weight training, a marathon you want to run, progress you've made, or even questions and advice on goals you want to achieve (though i might not be a professional, i think i've listened to enough and have read enough by specialist and professionals to help others). good luck to all that are trying to improve themselves.

    I do hip hop dancing and I'm also good at robot dancing. I'm not sure what it's called when people dance like when they move their bones in a way that makes it hit every beat in any electronic beat. But go on my profile and look at the video on there I posted and that's the type of dance I do along with hip hop.

    Who's better? I vote FC Barcelona because Messi, Neymar and Suares are SUPER POWER (but not in Italy).
