Three steps to shredded!
Over years of training, coaching, and studying I have the fitness industry’s secrets to get you in the best shape of your life! Many trainers will charge hundreds of dollars to give you this information, but we’re going to give it to you for free! With no further ado, here are the three things you need to do to get shredded!
Step 1: Train…with barbells.
Yes ladies and gents, get strong. If you are a beginner trainee then squatting, pressing, and deadlifting for sets while adding a little weight each time will do perfectly! If you don’t know where to start then I suggest the “rule of 3 to 5”. This simply means that you will train 3 to 5 times a week, performing 3 to 5 exercises, completing 3 to 5 sets of 3 to 5 reps. The more advanced you become the more you will have to pay attention to details like volume, intensity, frequency and tonnage (check out our previous blogs for more information). Finally, top off training sessions with a little conditioning. Just keep it simple. Prowler or sled pushes will do fine. If you don’t have a prowler then sprints will work as well.
Step 2: Eat.
If you do Step 1 correctly then you are going to need to eat enough to recover from training sessions. Now, don’t get sucked into the swirling crap vortex that is fad diets, meal replacement shakes, and super foods. If you train correctly then eat like you give a damn. Here is my suggestion. Eat according to your goal. If you want to lose weight then you need to create a caloric deficit. If you want to gain weight then you need to create a caloric surplus. We suggest tracking your macronutrients in order to get the most optimal results. Guess what! We have a previous blog about this as well!
Step 3: Sleep…like a little baby.
Just sleep. It’s really simple! The effort put forth to training and eating will be less FAR LESS significant if you do not recover!
Well there you have it! Train, eat, and sleep your way to that sexy “toned” bikini bod that you have always wanted. I should mention that there are some side effects to these recommendations and they include: increased sexual attractiveness, more time spent flexing in mirrors and windows and a body like iron…only stronger!
