Dear 100 Hour Board,
I am an athlete on a sports team here at BYU in my senior season. I have gained about 20-25 pound of muscle since starting here and lifting regularly. After I graduate, I will not be able to spend as much time working out and lifting weights, and I don't want to turn fat. What do you suggest as the best way to trim down in weight, mostly cutting down on muscle mass, while working out about 30-45 minutes a day?
- Pleasantly Plump
You could give some of it to me.

P.S. Contact the trainers for the sports team you play for. They should provide you with the information you need or point you in the right direction.
Low weight, high reps. And as terrible as it may sound, running is a great way to shed pounds without putting on muscle. Have you seen those cross-country runners? Scary.
