1- Hello Martin, can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Hello. I’m a man from a small village (village Svirachi) in Bulgaria. Former military. I worked in the army three years. I entered and the French Legion. After the army, I started to compete in bodybuilding and powerlifting. I’m a four-time champion in powerlifting, fourth in the world in dead lift (280 kg deadlift; category up to 75 kg), fitness model, a fitness trainer. I am a health consultant to large and small companies. Also, write articles and deal with marketing. I am a professional blogger. I write for newspapers, magazines and on my blog. I started in 2006. I had no computer. I did not understand the Internet. But I decided that I should be helpful with their knowledge. And so. I turned on the tenacity of the sport … here. Now I have over 10 websites and online stores.
