If by shredded you mean: A lot of muscles. <5% body fat. Yes, you can do it naturally, but it's rare. It also depends on whether you expand your definition to "illegal substances" like off-label ephedra use or clenbuterol. Most folks (natural or otherwise) who want to look shredded do so for competition times and go through cycles of "bulking" and ...

For general fitness and endurance, 25 minutes, six days a week would be better. The best advice I've ever seen for running is: Run. Run lots. Mostly slow, sometimes fast. One of the best programs I've seen for running comes from a triathlon and cross country coach that I've talked with a few times, and it's 3:2:1. Say your longest run is 30 minutes. You ...

There really isn't a way to loose fat in a specific area - despite what commercials want to sell you. Unlike making muscles larger, where you can focus on specific areas, fat is determined by genetics. The only way to remove fat from the area mentioned would be liposuction. That is, you can decrease the fat percentage in your body until this goes away. ...

This is a very common question, and what you're asking about is spot reduction. Bottom line is, spot reduction is a myth. You likely have more KG of fat than you think-5kg equates to .06 percent, which is extremely low-that's venturing on hospitalization if true. I will echo others here-trim bodies are built in the kitchen just as much as they are in ...

I partially agree with Eric. Zyzz wasn't at a level of <5% bf, he was around a 8%. You can achieve that level of definition without taking steroids. As Eric says, being in a 8-10% bf is totally possible with hard work. But first you have to consider two different things. One is your bf level and the other your muscle development. As said, you can ...

I run 60 min every single day and every time I come back home I feel very well and satisfied of another successful day! Most of the time I run quite slowly and I speed up at maximum 1-3 times during this hour. It depends on how I feel on the determinate day. I lost a lot of weight. Any advice? Just move your body. The more you run the more you lose. ...

I would pick 3 days per week, as it's more sustainable. You get 2 sets of 1 rest day, and 1 set of 2 rest days. So you can aim to run every second day, and if something comes up preventing it, you can easily just run the next day, and that became your 2 day rest. If you have to take 2 days of on a 6 day per week program, you've suddenly knocked yourself down ...
