This is the moment of truth – as the winter beaten you up or are you ready to show up your lean and fit muscle? Fear not, if your body is not beach worthy yet, it can take as little as 6-8 weeks to see some tremendous improvements.

The tips I’m going to share are based on a little secret us fitness models and bodybuilders keep to ourselves but prepared to share with you. To really turn heads and look leaner and more muscular, you need to focus on pure fat loss. This is the secret action hero celebrities use to appear huge on the big screen – they focus on getting as ripped as possible which creates the illusion that you have gained muscle mass. Focusing on a fat loss program will be your secret weapon this next few weeks and months as you strive for a symmetrical and balanced physique.

This all sounds easier than done but with the time tested action steps below, you’ll be ripped faster than ever and have the beach body you deserve.

How To Get Ripped With Weight Training

• Focus on 45-75 minutes weight training sessions to increase caloric expenditure.
• Focus on 80% compound movements and 20% isolated movements.
• Aim to get stronger by 5% every two weeks.
• Listen to your body and do an extra set or rep if you are feeling good.
• Keep your rest periods between 30 and 60 seconds.
• Hit every muscle group at least two times per week. E.g. Push day on Monday and Thursday (chest, shoulders, triceps, quads) and Pull day on Tuesday and Saturday (lats, rows, biceps, hips)

How To Get Ripped With Nutrition

• Take your body weight and multiply it by 13 to determine how many calories you need.
• Break these calories up into 5 or 6 meals.
• Take 1 gram of protein for each pound of body weight.
• Eat starchy carbs at breakfast, before a workout or after a workout.
• Eat 2 cups of veggies with each meal.
• Drink 4-6 liters of water a day.

• Focus on egg whites, chicken breast, and fish as your protein staples.
• Focus on oatmeal, brown rice and brown read as your starchy carbs.
• Get your fats from natural peanut butter, fish oil and olive oil.
