  Lean Body 
Lean Lipid Fat Burner.
Our all-new EFA's product, Lean Body Lean Lipid, is perfect for anybody who wants to support lean muscle growth, improve brain function, heart-health and overall well-being. 

But, what if you could get even MORE from your fish oil supplement? Not only could you get all of the above, but also get extra help in burning unwanted body fat, resulting in a leaner body? Most people understand the health benefits traditionally associated with the use of a fish oil supplement.

You might be thinking, "How is an essential fatty acids supplement supposed to do what a fat burner or muscle toning product does?" 

Think of Lean Body Lean Lipids as a "supercharged" fish oil supplement. 

Along with the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, Lean Body Lean Lipids also includes GLA and oleuropein, an olive leaf extract. These added ingredients give Lean Body Lean Lipids an edge  that other essential fatty acids supplements just can't match.    

Let's look at these ingredients more closely.

We'll start with the special fish oil blend use in Lean Body Lean Lipids.

Unlike other fish oil supplements containing low doses of EPA, Lean Body Lean Lipids contains

2 times more EPA than DHA - and studies show that fish oil supplements with this 2:1 ratio promote more fat loss. 

Then we add in GLA, an Omega-6 essential fatty acid that studies show stimulates fat burning. But, GLA doesn't just help increase fat loss. It actually works double-duty by also helping to reduce body-fat accumulation.

And finally, we add Oleuropein, an olive leaf extract that enhances fat burning and increases energy. 

You'll get the scientifically proven amounts of each ingredient. Every ingredient is listed on the label with their corresponding amounts. Unlike some companies, nothing is hidden in a so called "proprietary blend".  
Available in easy to swallow capsules, you get a combination of healthy, powerful essential fatty acids that you won't find in any other formula. 

Add Lean Body Lean Lipids to your nutrition program today and not only will you enjoy improved health, you'll also have added support to help you burn off unwanted body fat!

Do Squats Help Build Muscle Over Your Entire Body?

Our "Ask Lee" today comes from Antonio M - Portugal

Mr Labrada, thank you for your wonderful site, I read many articles on your blog each week, it is very helpful.

I do not like to squat much but I read it can also help grow muscle on my whole body, I don't understand how this can be, is it true?

Kind Regards



Hi Antonio,  squats performed with the correct form, are the best lower body exercise in the book. They tax every muscle in your legs. 

In fact, before the advent of various leg training machines, we saw incredible leg development created with nothing but the squat. 
Regarding your question - can squats add muscle mass over your entire body ? The short answer is yes. 
That's because, what many people don't realize is that squats, activate numerous other muscle groups.
First, your core receives some of the most intense training possible when squatting. 
Your core is partly responsible for maintaining the upright posture needed when squatting with proper form. That's because your core is the "connection" between the two halves of your body, it also assists to a great degree in stabilizing the bar's load across your back.

Squatting is also extremely taxing on your back muscles. When squatting, the load is transferred from the bar to your legs through your upper body and the main load bearing/ stabilizing muscle in your back are the erector muscles. 

Repair Your Muscles With the Best
Whey Protein Available
ISO LeanPro!

Your erector muscles are largely responsible for keeping you upright when you perform the squat. They also help stabilize the bar sitting across the top of your back. 

The squat really is a whole body exercise that employs almost all of the body's muscle tissue to a varying degree. However, the benefits of the exercise aren't limited to the sheer amount of muscle tissue that can be trained and developed.

Studies consistently show us that heavy squats to failure or near failure cause the body to release testosterone and growth hormone. These are two of the most anabolic hormones in your body. 

What this means is you continue reaping the benefits of the squat through your other workouts, as heightened testosterone and growth hormone levels lead to increased muscle mass. 

So do I think the squat is beneficial to hypertrophy (muscle growth) over your entire body. Yes, I do. Unless you have a very good reason not to squat, I would suggest you incorporate it into your leg routine. 

One word of warning. Squats are taxing on the system, you'll grow strong , powerful legs but only if your nutrition is optimal. I strongly suggest a Whey protein shake after you train to ensure optimal recovery and to trigger the all important muscle protein synthesis. The best option, and the protein I recommend is a fast acting Whey Protein Isolate, like ISO LeanPro. 

It's low calorie, sugar-free, carb-free, lactose-free, gluten-free and made to the highest standards containing only 100% pure Whey Protein Isolate.

It also tastes great, try some today, you'll see what I mean.

Until next time,  stay healthy and strong. 
Get lean, live lean!


Yours for a Lean Body,
