If you’re like most people, you don’t just want “big muscles”–you want defined muscles.

For example, if you’re a guy, would you rather be big and “fluffy,” or smaller but ripped?

And if you’re a gal, would you rather be skin and bones or lean and toned?

Well, if you chose the second option, then you’re in the right place, because in this podcast, I’m going to teach you the simple science of not just gaining muscle, but gaining muscle definition.

We’re going to cut through the myths and lies, too.

“Clean eating” isn’t the key, and neither is exercise choice, rep ranges, or supplementation. 

Genetics aren’t the answer, either (fortunately!).

You may not have the genetics to look exactly like your favorite Instagram model, but you don’t need singular genes to be a shining example of muscle definition.

You have the same types of physiological hardware as the rest of us, and your body (and muscles) will respond fantastically if given the proper stimuli.

So, if you’re ready to learn what muscle definition is, and what doesn’t increase muscle definition and what does, then listen in.
