After the last year, many people found themselves without a place to exercise, and they watched many of their healthy habits disappear.

Now that things are slowly opening back up, I've been receiving a lot of questions about how to lean out and what can be done to build muscles after a year of being sedentary.

I brought on Mario Tomic to help guide us on good ways to get our health back, especially if we are busy with our careers and businesses.
