The 8-Week Transformassacre is full steam ahead and there's no letting up. The project began with Charlie's assessment, training and meal plan. His first training session gave him a beating, then things got even harder in week two. As Charlie begins to feel the effects of the regimen, we looked for motivation on the Men's Fitness Facebook and Men's Fitness Twitter Pages for him. Here's the collection of quotes from readers that inspired Charlie.
