ROTATOR CUFF SCAN!!!!...Haha

Gym, Tan, Laundry has been your motto for most of your adult life. You're a true muscle head that needs to make sure you get your daily pump in. You make sure your macros are always on point, and consider whey protein to be your best friend. Your brain may be suffering from some slight cortical degeneration, but hey, brawn over brains am I right?
