In this episode, I interview Ann and Lo (also known as the Minny Hustlers on Instagram), who read Thinner Leaner Stronger and used what they learned to dramatically change their physiques and lives.

Before finding TLS, Ann and Lo focused on what many women do–lots of cardio and lifting light weights. While they managed to prevent weight gain (the dreaded “freshman 15”…or 20…or 30), they didn’t know how to build the bodies they really wanted with toned arms and glorious glutes.

Ever since they read the book in 2015 and learned what really moves the needle in terms of body composition, they’ve totally transformed their physiques, adding muscle in all the right places while stripping away fat, and building their strength to levels they had never seen before.

And the best part is by working together, Ann and Lo were able to keep each other accountable and motivate one another to push through the tough times. They also used what they learned in the book to become Legion Athletes and launch their own Instagram page, which they use to educate and motivate other women to finally get their dream bodies and improve their own lives.

In this interview, we talk about . . .

  • The struggles of bulking
  • Dealing with body image issues
  • Tips that helped them transition to cutting while staying satisfied
  • How flexible dieting changed the game for them
  • How gyms shutting down affected their cut
  • And more . . .
