Steve Cook's Modern Physique Pillar 7 Definition
Watch the video - 2:23
Definition is the ability to see the shape of your muscles. A modern physique isn't complete without round shoulders that cut into big biceps and triceps, and teardrop quads that are flanked by ropy hamstrings.
Really, what's the point of going to the gym every day and building strength, size, and symmetry if your muscles are just hidden under a layer of fat? You want to show off your hard work! In order to achieve definition, you want to be lean. However, it's important that you don't get so lean that you delve into the realm of being unhealthy.
For me, I can live pretty easily between 6-9 percent body fat. But, that doesn't have to be a rule for everyone, especially if you're just starting out. What makes this program great, though, is that I've set it up so that you can continue to get bigger, stronger, and improve your physique all at the same time.
The nutrition, though, has to come from you. You need to be eating enough calories to build muscle and strength, but not so many that they end up getting stored as fat. It may take you the entire program to figure out the right amount of calories, but when you do, you'll see even better results.
