This is How I stay soo LEAN and BIG!! :-)

One of the most asked questions I receive is:  “How do you stay soo lean and maintain soo much muscle mass?!”  And the answer to that question is simple…. Metabolic Resistance Training!  In addition to that I also like to add in interval segments of Traditional Cardio as well, i.e. Running/Treadmill, Elliptical, and o yea….. the STAIR MASTER (fyi… NEVER take the elevator…unless you’re 5+ stories up…then it’s ok…lol)!!

*A little side note- I ONLY recommend doing Traditional cardio if you are training heaving weights that day…. Otherwise …i highly recommend metabolic resistance training for non-heavy weight training days! okie dokie?!

The main reason I recommend these methods is simply because it is more effective AND efficient at SHREDDING off FAT while building/maintaining muscle mass!  Lets get a lil more into it… 🙂
