@yourhealthyhedonista – Let’s speak about getting shredded!
So many individuals get into this factor they usually suppose it’s doing to be simple. Each time I see an enormous ig account speaking about the way you shouldn’t be doing quite a lot of cardio or weight-reduction plan laborious, I simply chuckle my ass off. I’ve possibly 2 out of 50 ladies who don’t need to food plan laborious and do quite a lot of cardio to get stage prepared.
For me to get callipers on the stomach under 2mm and my quads all the way down to Four mm, I take about 12-16 weeks of cautious, progressively stricter weight-reduction plan and progressively extra cardio to chop. I’ve competed in over 20 exhibits within the final 9 years, I’m additionally 50, and I pleasure myself in being to develop yearly, construct up my metabolism, after which frikkin HARD to be aggressive onstage, with out medication! 💪💪💪

They’re afraid to rack up intelligently deliberate cardio as a result of they’re afraid of “shedding all their muscle”. I feel what actually must be underlined is that muscular tissues are constructed and one’s metabolism is elevated , not in a reduce, however within the appropriately named “constructing season”.
I attempt to get my athletes all the way down to minimal cardio (50-100 energy a day), and max energy (15-20 energy per pound), while retaining stomach callipers under 8mm within the constructing season.
Throughout a reduce nonetheless, there’s a HUGE variation amongst my athletes how low they need to convey energy and the way excessive they need to convey cardio. The GOAL nonetheless is identical: we would like stomach callipers all the way down to 2 mm for health fashions and 4-6 for bikini. All selections are based mostly on that. Onerous losers want 24-28 weeks of weight-reduction plan, and quick losers like myself want solely 16 weeks to lose. .
This video was taken 2 weeks earlier than Worlds final 12 months. I used to be doing 600 energy of cardio at 6 weeks out and dropped all the way down to 200 for the final two weeks. Energy have been at 15 energy per pound, from an preliminary level of 20 energy per pound. I solely dropped 6 lbs however I went from 14 mm on the hamstring down to eight mm on the hamstring.
Should you determine to compete in opposition to a high athlete, be ready to do the
