What does it take to be a Massenomics athlete? A world record total? Record setting lifts? Millions of followers?

To be honest, we aren’t completely sure what it takes either but you know what they say “when you got it you got it”. The people listed below definitely have “it”, whatever that is. So try being more like them. Give them a follow while you’re at it.
