Re: hiding my body- is it normal?
Yeah, I do that sometimes too in the lockeroom. I feel like my biceps aren't big enough, or I'm not strong enough, or I've got too much back acne, so I sometimes hide myself. I think you should just push through it and be proud of how your body looks - I'm doing that in weight training and I'm not gonna let those bigger, stronger guys get in the way of my life.
Don't hide yourself...it makes you feel bad about yourself. Be proud and push through what everybody else thinks and says =]
