Most of the physique athletes you see on social media are in a ‘temporary’ state.

I’d be the first to admit (& I’m sure they’d agree) that maintaining that paper-thin-skin ‘shredded’ lean look is darn near impossible.

There are a LOT of sacrifices involved to get visible abs & you get to the point of diminishing returns – you sacrifice lifestyle for a fleeting image in the mirror.
Is it really worth it?

Only YOU know because you’re the highest authority of you.

Do what’s right for you.

Just know that everything comes with a cost. What are you willing to trade?
