What works? What doesn’t?
As a licensed personal trainer, I’ve witnessed the multitude of myths and fads that run rampant through the fitness and nutrition industries. We all want a program that takes the least amount of time, yet misses nothing crucial.

Follow these 10 proven strategies:
1. Weight Train: Train three times a week, allowing a minimum of twenty-four hours rest, between sessions. Optimum increases in muscle growth, fat loss, and strength, occur only with complete recovery. So, rest on your days off.
