STOP Perpetual Dieting

There’s a dark side to bodybuilding that no one seems to be talking about. Perpetual dieting, back-to-back competitions, and the constant drive to stay lean are all creating lifetime issues -- physically and mentally. Today Laurin and Celeste are taking a stand: it’s time to stop the madness. You’re going to hear exactly why your body needs a break, especially if you want to perform better and last longer in the sport. Laurin gets real about what happens to your body if you don’t take time off, and Celeste shares her experience with perpetual dieting when she was wrestling. Take it from these pros: no Instagram likes or six packs are worth this kind of trouble. Tune in to hear why.

 

“If you want to make progress, you have to take time off stage.”
