Finding the most effective workout and diet regime, with the goal of getting fit and lean, is, for many, the ultimate challenge.  Even elite athletes struggle as they strive to achieve their peak level of performance.  Jon Pearlman, a former #1 singles player for the Harvard tennis team, learned through personal experience that athletic prowess does not come easy.  The two time All-Ivy athlete and ATP-ranked touring professional, had performance setbacks as a young tennis player but he learned through his struggles and now advises others on the best way to build a healthy, lean body for life.  In this episode of the LLAMA podcast, the author of The Lean Body Manual and co-founder of the fitness app, Mission Lean, discusses his mission to help people transform their bodies and defy their age. In conversation with Peter Bowes, Jon discusses the pros and cons of a ‘strength and conditioning’ approach to fitness training; explains why he prefers to workout on an empty stomach; and why he believes there’s an “inner athlete” just waiting to be discovered in all of us.
