May 3, 2012

Stack

Summer's fast approaching. Knowing you want to look your absolute best for swimsuit season, the ABB team offers this challenging weekly workout designed to help you build muscle while burning fat. It's the perfect complement to a dialed-in diet featuring slow-burning carbs, healthy fats and plenty of muscle building protein.

We recommend getting in about 30 minutes of cardio conditioning 5 times a week, either first thing in the morning or after weight training. Give yourself between 1 and 2 minutes between sets to catch your breath!
