ThatIsBeyond… My Fitness Journey (part 1)

In many ways 2019 had not been my best year. Don’t get me wrong there have been some amazing highlights, there is no doubt about that, but there has also been a lot that I would rather forget! One thing that changed drastically for me, was a perception of who I was and who I …

In this post I put the iconic HO1 Original Long Boxer briefs to the ultimate test! There are many ways to judge a good pair of pants! For some people,what is important, is based purely on aesthetics. For others it will be comfort or functionality, but for the majority of men (like me) it is …
