By this point in my 12-Week Lean Muscle Program you should know the drill. You’re going to perform 2 sets of steady-state cardio today. That means 25 minutes upon rising, and then another 35 minutes later in the day. Again, intensity should be enough to cause you to sweat. You may think this is a little boring, but cardio is going to get much more intense in the weeks to come. Trust me, you won’t be bored when that happens!

Make sure you reduce calorie intake so that you’re following your weekend macros: The base recommendations still apply unless you’ve made a shift based on the fact that you’re losing or adding too much weight.

  • 1.3g of protein
  • 1.0g of carbs
  • 0.5g of fats

At the end of Week Four, I’m going to cut calorie intake a bit. As you follow a calorie-cutting program like this one your body tends to burn fewer calories. For that reason, we’ll drop calorie intake even if you’ve been pleased with the results to date. After all, you don’t want to plateau with your fat loss. We’ll also make another downshift at the end of Week Eight as you head into the final stretch of my lean muscle program.

Because you won’t be taking in your workout supps, RE-KAGED®, IN-KAGED®, and PRE-KAGED®, you can bump up your consumption of KASEIN and MICROPURE® WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE so long as you don’t exceed the amount of calories I recommend you take in each day for your bodyweight.
