The Fat Problem Having high levels of body fat is detrimental to your health. You know this already. The average body fat in the western World is 30% and is going to rise in the next decade unless more steps are taken to improve health and reduce body fat. Having a high body fat percentage is usually the start to many life shortening illnesses, but levels are still on the rise despite efforts to improve health and wellness across the World.

Do you have what it takes to be lean? My reason for posting this infographic should come as no surprise.  Many people are convinced they want to achieve a particular physique goal but generally they have no idea the sacrifices and planning needed to achieve the body of their dreams.  It's very easy to set out on a goal, and it's also pretty simple to move from one level to the next, but in order to get super lean, or even close to it, requires more than most people are willing to give. There's a reason why very few will build a lean cover model body, because the work, effort and dedication required will take a lot out of you.  Hopefully this infographic will be [...]

For most people, fitting in a workout several times a week is just not a viable option.  And for those who are new to training, jumping onto a program that involves a complex body part split it way too much, way too soon. When starting out with resistance training, it’s usually a good idea to start with something a little more simple, that allows you to train the whole body and have an adequate number of rest days allowing your body to recuperate from the new stimulus the body is experiencing. Generally when someone is starting a resistance program, I like to prescribe something that works the upper and lower body in the same session, and usually between 3-4 of such workouts a week.
