My friend Andrew is a certified fitness trainer who has been a successful bodybuilder competing at the regional level. He currently runs his own fitness studio and helps his clients achieve their own goals. If anyone can help you get lean and ripped muscles, he can.
So, if you are looking for a muscle building workout program to follow I am going to point you to his warrior built program. He's spent a lot of time and effort putting together a professionally produced MMA style workout series available on DVD or via download. Additionally, Andrew has provided a complete meal program that you can follow in order to get lean.
All you have to do is follow the program... so what are you waiting for, it's time to get ripped! Stop being dissatisfied -- start you transformation right now.
If you are more of a beginner and are looking for some introductory information about getting ripped here are some breadcrumbs for you to follow... basically, getting lean enough to have muscle definition, without losing muscle mass, involves careful control of both nutrition and workouts.
When attempting to get ripped you need to continue to exercise with intensity. This provides a high level of energy usage in a fairly short period of time - having a dramatic metabolic effect. Additionally, as getting lean involves reducing calories to burn fat, your workouts must also be intense enough to avoid muscle loss.
Most people who are serious about their goals are perfectly capable of working out and following a suitable workout program... when they find one. Where the majority of aspiring physical specimens fall down is in the nutritional arena. It takes sophisticated food strategies to ensure that the body is willing and able to continue to shed fat.
Anyhow, while I'm just getting started with this blog I will keep adding more details about the things I know about. It's a long journey but it's well worth taking...
