G-Flux: Building the Ultimate Bodyby Dr John M Berardi Those LegsI remember the first time I saw those legs.I was walking down the stairs at the Olympic Oval in Calgary Alberta – and with aboutthree stairs to go, I looked up and saw the legendary quads, the peaked hamstrings, andthe rock-hard glutes.Of course, describing body parts that way might make them sound less sexy. So don't getthe wrong idea, this woman was 100% babe.But back to those legs. They had shape, they had definition, they had muscle. Even more,that shapely, defined muscle had carried her to countless Olympic medals, worldchampionships, and world records.
 That's right, Catriona Lemay-Doan was not only the fastest woman on ice, but she alsolooked the part. She was lean, muscular, and, of course, it didn't hurt that she was a superbabe.So I stalked her.No, no, I didn't stalk her.But since I was just starting out as a nutritional consultant to the Calgary Olympic centreat the time, I did resolve to find how she got that smokin' body, especially those legs –legs that most T-Nation readers wouldn't mind calling their own (easy boys, that's notwhat I mean).Come to find out, no one told Catriona that her muscles would catabolize themselves if she exercised for more than 45 minutes at a time. And no one told her that she'd overtrainif she lifted weights more than 3-4 times per week.No, she wasn't cautioned that if she did any aerobic work, she'd lose all her muscle mass.Nor was she told that eating more than 100g of carbs would make her fat. And shecertainly wasn't provided kettlebells, bosu balls, gymnastics rings, or any of the latestfaddy equipment to help her reach her training and body comp goals.
Nope, Catriona simply trained 2-3 times per day, accumulating about 15-20 hours of physical activity per week. She worked on multiple physiological qualities during eachtraining phase, including: speed strength, maximal strength, elastic strength, muscularendurance, anaerobic power, and aerobic power. She skated, biked, and ran at differentintensities and durations. She did Olympic lifts. She did max effort lifts. She didplyometrics. And she ate a high calorie, mixed macronutrient diet that included liquidrecovery supplements.And thank God!If she would have bought into any of the current fitness nonsense or weird fitness trends;if she would have learned to be deathly afraid of overtraining, or if she would have beenscared of any particular macronutrient, she would never have become a world andOlympic champion, never would have become one of the most recognizable speedskaters of all time, and likely never would have had such fine, fine legs.How Much Can You Bench?"How much can he bench?" I asked incredulously when I first saw Pavle Jovanovic, theworld's top brakeman and US gold medal hopeful (with Todd Hays) in this year'sOlympic games. Someone had just whispered some of his stats and I instantly felt smalland weak,
small and weak.
