OK, so you have your nutrition squared away from last month. Now, it’s time to build those muscles and create the “look.” These workouts will get the busy professional or mom in and out of the gym quickly while focusing on shaping muscles for that toned competitor look. Do the workouts in order with one day of rest in between each. The ab workouts can be done up to 4 times per week, either after the weights or on non-weight days after cardio. Along with this weight training program, I recommend doing cardio at least 5 times per week for a minimum of 30 minutes to keep body fat low. The basic principle behind these workouts is to choose a weight that allows you to do the number of reps, working to failure, in the number

second is reps, i.e. 4 (sets) x 15 (reps).
HOW TO LOOK LIKE A COMPETITOR
Part 2 of our How To Look Like a Competitor series is all about the ladies. Here's how to work out and what supplements to take. Next month, it's the guys' turn!
While nutrition and working out are keys to looking great, supplements also play a major role in feeling and looking top notch. These are the supplements I recommend to the competitors I train.
Max Isolate: sugar free, high in protein
Max Pro: sugar free, low carb, isolate and casein blend
Max Lean: low carbs, added ﬁber, high in protein – great as a meal replacement
Max Nutraceuticals Women's Max Multi
L-Glutamine – 20 grams per day minimum (add to shakes!)
These are not recommended to take all together, but I like the following stacks:
Emerge, ThermXX, CLA and L-Carnitine
Lipo-Red or Quadra Cuts Competition with Quadra Cuts Night-Time
