Diamond’s advice on ditching fat is to “assess your diet, eliminate the worst foods—soda, fried stuff, processed carbs. But take it slowly. Cut one thing every few weeks. Don’t be too strict. And keep training.” Ott does cardio three times a week and every week is different. He switches it up with activities such as a 3.5-mile tempo, sprinting drills, and cohesion run. For upper-body workouts, he recommends pushup drills, pullups, overhead lifts with med balls and sandbags.
