I’ve been working within the health business for nearly 15 years, spending the majority of that point doing cardio. If I wasn’t operating I used to be instructing some type of cardio class. Resistance coaching consisted of sunshine weights and excessive reps, 2 units of 20.
I by no means gained any muscle tone and I used to be drained and sore from all of the cardio and had sufficient of it. I began doing HIIT and supplemented that with plenty of core coaching and a few “heavier” resistance coaching within the 10-12 rep vary.
I used to be much less drained however my physique didn’t change a lot. After studying the e book, and deciding in January of this 12 months to place this system and dietary advise into motion, I’m blown away with the outcomes.

What, if something, nearly saved you from shopping for the e book or beginning this system?
I used to be having fun with many nights out consuming and having a pleasant glass of wine within the evenings with dinner. I used to be snug and maybe hesitant to surrender these comforts.
After Christmas, I made a decision to focus my thoughts on this system and see what it introduced. So away went the nights out and the wine and in got here a 5-day break up. 🙂 After 3 months and nice success, I enable myself the occasional night time out because it doesn’t maintain me again anymore.

How does this program evaluate with others you’ve tried?
I’ve adopted the recommendation that’s been dished out through the years–cardio, cardio, and extra cardio coupled with gentle resistance coaching, and some ab workouts thrown in. With this, I used to be sore and exhausted and fully overtrained.
Then, I adopted a HIIT coaching program with some barely heavier resistance coaching and loads of ab exercises. Nonetheless, no actual enchancment within the look and form of my physique. Following Mike’s program has introduced me on in leaps and bounds in power and likewise aesthetically I see that I look means higher.
I’m now not sore or drained and really feel nice. Nutritionally, I adopted a high-carb low-fat weight-reduction plan for years, then a moderate-fat high-carb weight-reduction plan.
