Sculpting a Body with Definition~

Sculpting a Body with Definition~

I had this crazy metaphor last year.

If you take a body and assume it's like a piece of clay and you want to sculpt it how would you do it?

First you would need to add some clay to the body( Muscle ) and then use your water and tool (cardio ) to shed the unwanted areas around the clay you've added so that you can see the curves that you desire.

The mistake I see people making......1st of the year.......they get into the gym and think cardio cardio cardio!!

That's like taking your body and throwing water, water, water on it and what you end up with is a thinner version of what you started definition, no muscle tone and wondering why you can't reach the goals that you want. 

The Great thing about Michelle's Hormonal Timing is that it is a program that really sculpts you and turns you into a fat burning machine.  You don't need tons of cardio to make it happen. 

You focus for two weeks on Building (Boosting) adding muscle.  How do you add muscle?  By Challenging yourself and focusing on increasing your strength with the weights you pick up each time. Getting enough rest in between, Eating meals and enough calories so that you FEED those muscles and get proper sleep at night.

Then right when you're done with that and ready to shed some extra clay(fat) you begin to work on leaning out (Buffing....add the water)for two weeks and adding that extra cardio in, the challenging weight workouts (clay tools) that you move a little quicker through your program, cutting out some extra carbs  and calories(no more adding clay, just maintain it).

When you do this with your Cycle and work with your hormones you will see how it truly makes sense!!
If you stick with it you will end up that nice sculpture that you were looking for.

I say put yourself on the Wheel and get to work!!
