    Stop worrying about what other people think for a start!!

    Everyone has to begin somewhere.

    The bar is about 20kgs too so you are up to 50kgs get to it!!!
    The average is the borderline that keeps mere men in their place. Those who step over the line are heroes by the very

    Every freak you see at the gym with huge arms and chests started with low weights like you at somepoint.

    Don't be silly.

    It's not where you start, it's where you finish.

    Ignore them, even cop a 'tude if you have to with them. Just keep plugging along at it and you'll get bigger and stronger.

    you can either worry about what they think temporarily for about 2 years until you get some good size on you or you can never work out because of image issues and feel self concious for the rest of your life . your choice.
