At the start of August we launched our 21 Day Shred program with our digital director Mike Simone. The program includes workout routines for the full 21 days which consist of full body circuits, bodybuilding splits, intervals, and unique cardio challenges. There is also a daily meal plan. Overall, the program has been a combination of what the editorial teams here at Men's Fitness and Muscle and Fitness magazines have been writing about for years, along with the strategies Mike has used through his training career. Here is a demonstration of DAY 7 of the 21 DAY SHRED.
