32 Minutes is All You Need

I am going to let you in on a little secret. You don’t need to spend hours in the gym, slaving away, with little or no results. All I ask of you is 32 minutes a week, during this holiday season to get the body you have always wanted.

The training below is what’s called MINIMUM EFFECTIVE DOSE. This is simply the smallest dose that will produce a desired outcome. In your case, fat loss and muscle gain. Anything BEYOND the MED is wasteful.

For example, to boil water, the MED is 212°F (100°C) at standard air pressure. Boiled is boiled. Higher temperatures will not make it “more boiled.” Higher temperatures just consume more resources that could be used for something else more productive.

More is not better. This goes for exercise too. Indeed, your greatest challenge with the routine below is resisting the temptation to do more. When followed to the letter, this MED routine below not only delivers GREAT results, but it does so in 32 minutes a week.

Wow, I think I just put myself out of a job.

INSTRUCTIONS

Follow the training below, 4 times per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) for 12 weeks. Use nothing less than 100% effort.

You can thank me later.

Day 1

Close grip pushups 10 reps (Can be done on knees or on an incline surface)
