To Kiefer/ Naomi/ Any other knowledgeable members
I know 3 personal trainers who run their own seperate businesses focussed on getting people in incredible shape in 12-16 weeks. Most of the clients they put on these programs, both males and females, have gone from flabby to ripped in 12-16 weeks, with the odd few who have achieved flabby to very lean.
After speaking to them in an attempt to figure out what methods they use all 3 adopt the same approach which they used when preparing for the 'Body For Life Challenge'. What it entails is the following;
6 times per week
Early morning fasted hill sprints 20-30 min
Resistance training in the evening 45-60 min
6 meals per day
low G.I. carbs and protein for breakfast (porridge and egg whites)
protein/ low G.I. carbs/ greens for the next 4 meals (brown rice, chicken and spinach)
protein and greens last meal of the day (chicken and cabbage)
This is LITERALLY what is recommended, I couldn't believe it....
I can understand how there are certain 'freaks' that will repond well to this type of diet but what I find confusing is that this is what is recommended to practically every type of client they take on, and yet all three produce really great results...
So my question is, do you think it is possible to elliminate the problems with a high carb intake through an extremely high volume of training?
