Getting shredded in the most simplistic terms is reducing your bodyfat to the point of your desired level of physique definition. The ideal scenario is referred to in the physique world as body recomposition. This is the concept of losing bodyfat while building muscle at the same time, a difficult task to achieve without chemical enhancement. Technically body recomposition can be done; you can lose fat while building muscle but probably not how you’re imagining. The amount of muscle you can actually build while losing fat is a small amount and requires a lot of effort and monitoring.
Train Like a Dissident is a workout program that’s going to help you shed body fat by being highly metabolic. We will need to maximize fat burning and fat mobilization. It will be a lot of energy expenditure, effort, elevated heart rates, cranking metabolics, glycogen tapping, etc. Now from that description you’re probably imagining some wild and crazy workout; we’re not doing any of that. We have however constructed a program that manipulates the training variables to accomplish all those goals.
One of thing that is important to understand is that dropping body fat is “state” dependent. Your body has to be in a biochemical state that’s shifted toward fat mobilization. Getting your body to shift its state is a team effort you can’t do training alone, you need proper nutrition, the right mix of hormones, proper recovery (sleep), etc. From a training perspective one of the most effective and accessible methodologies for dropping body fat is complex training.
Hope you are ready to shred with us over the next 12 weeks! We have put together all of the tools necessary to get you where you want to be. It is up to you to remain Dissident and keep focused on goal!
