What’s going on, guys? Thomas Delauer here and I have 2 important things you’re gonna want to hear about. These 2 things dictate how you lose body fat, build muscle, and define your six pack abs. I’m talking about your hormones – specifically estrogen and cortisol.
0:41 – Estrogen: Now, this dominant female hormone isn’t all bad for us guys. It can actually help us burn fat by aiding in the regulating of insulin. The problem is, many people don’t have their estrogen in check…
