Athlean X Inferno Max Shred works! I am the lightest and most shredded that I have been since I was an athlete. And I train less than when I was an athlete as well.
When I started the program, I was 76.8kg. I managed to shred down to 73.3kg over 12 weeks.
This first picture doesn’t do it justice, so here’s a couple where I’ve flexed and you can see the lean result from a different angle.
The biggest thing that I would say is that I shredded down whilst being more relaxed with my diet compared to when I did the AX1 program. I consumed more starchy carbs (where as I consumed little to none during AX1).
I did consume a few pizzas, cheese, wine, and allowed for some lifestyle indulgences, however they were controlled.
I also managed to reduce my body fat.
When I finished the program, my body fat stats according to the calipers were:
Hip – 10.5%
Chest – 5%
Stomach – 14.9%.
Also, my waist measured at 31 inches. I was at 32 inches before.
I have seen people critiquing the program in some forums. I don’t know the details about structuring the program. But I do know that if you follow the process and maintain a clean diet that allows for a calorie deficit, the program will work.
Things to bear in mind with this program.
- It is for fat loss.
- It isn’t designed to improve or enhance your athletic ability. However, as you become lighter, you will look and feel more athletic.
- The results are impacted by what you consume. I tested doing the program without tracking what I consumed and it didn’t work for me. So I would recommend that you track what you are consuming.
- My results came by working at the 4 alarm level for 70% of the program. If I were to do it again, I would try to do the program at the 5 alarm level.
- Workouts would take about an hour.
It’s a great program for the price. Very straightforward. Follow the program and the results will come.
Good luck in your journey.
Additional tip: If you want to grow your muscles and minimize fat, you need to fuel your body in the right way. But you also want to make sure that the meals are tasty.
