Question: I’m doing pretty great with the workouts but I have trouble with my diet.
It’s still pretty bad.
Do you have any specific programs for that?
Answer: Yes—we have an awesome 60-Day Clean and Healthy Eating Challenge.
Question: What about using a weight vest to strengthen my core and abs?
Answer: Yes; if you can hold plank for 5 minutes or more after a hard workout then it would be ok to use a weight vest.
Go slow at first and do 20 seconds first day, 30 seconds on 2nd day and then continue.
ANSWER: I use Athletic Greens in our shakes. It’s got tons of great nutrition—vitamins and minerals. Plus it mixes up easy in milk or water.
