Michelle Hanson Cutting Program

Michelle Hanson Cutting Program

Michelle Hanson's primary training philosophy is to stay in shape year-round. Although that's easier said than done, it does make it easier in the long run. Rather than fighting an uphill battle to get thin and trim for a shoot or show, Michelle would rather stay within 5 pounds of her competition weight at all times. This allows for an easy transition when the time comes to strike a pose.

During her cutting phase, Michelle increases her cardio and trains with light weight and high reps to maintain her feminine figure. If you want a photo shoot worthy body so you can proudly show off your best "assets" then take the advice of a veteran in the beauty business and follow her cutting program.

Michelle Hanson's Personal Philosophy

I have learned to live by the motto: do you eat to live or live to eat? After competing for several years, I learned that you will win some and lose some. If you go into this with the attitude that you are competing against yourself, you can have so much fun with the sport.

The dedication and discipline it took for me to transform my body into the shape that it is currently in, is the same dedication and discipline that I now apply to my everyday life and in my job.

I now know that there is not one thing in life that I can't achieve with the knowledge and understanding that I gained from my experiences training and competing.

I like this programs outline, and nutrition plan. With my GB I have such a hard time doing what any of the plans suggest,. I look forward to giving this a try this week.

Love this article! For the treadmill sessions -- are these three 45-min sessions done morning-lunch-evening?? Total is over two hours for these runs, I'm wondering if I can break these out and do them on the rest days since I don't have 3 hours in one day to spend at the gym. Also, what intensity level is the treadmill run?

Don't think i would be able to last 45 mins on the treadmill whilst eating less than a 1000 calories a day... Don;t think this is reinforcing the right idea!
