Did you know that you don’t have to start dieting and working out six months before your scheduled beach day with friends to make sure you’re looking your best and your butt is popping in your new lime-green swimming trunks (you can thank me for the fashion advice later)? Getting beach ready is not as hard as it seems, and if you’ve been a good boy this year and didn’t stuff your face with unnecessary junk food, you’ll have no problem sculpting a beach-ready bod by following these 5 easy steps.
Let’s get to it!
Before you start your new workout and diet regime, you have to detox your body of all unhealthy substances that have found their way into your belly over the past holiday season and start melting away that thigh and belly fluff.
An ultimate body cleanse is not only great for kick-starting your metabolism and melting away unwanted fat, but it’s also beneficial for your immune system and boosting your energy levels, making you feel revitalized, rejuvenated and ready to take on the world.
Get your supplements in order
Next, you want to resupply your supplement rack with essential workout supplements and a good diet supplement that will boost your performance and help you get the desired results just a little bit quicker. Quality protein powder is your first and foremost important tool in sculpting your 2017 physique, so choose a product with minimum amounts of sugars and calories. Your second essential supplement is creatine and your daily dose of energy lies in a strong pre-workout mix with a fruity taste ‒ working out has never been more delicious.
Your vitamins and minerals
Adequate vitamin and mineral intake is essential for optimizing every process in the human body, regulating hormone production, bone, joint, and connective tissue health, boosting your immune system, and increasing your CNS recovery rate.
Unfortunately, it’s near impossible to consume enough micronutrients on a daily basis through food, so get yourself a supply of Biocare supplements that will enable you to push strong through your workouts and recover faster than ever before.
Optimize your diet
Now that you have your supplements in check, you can tailor your diet to achieve your physique-shredding goals ‒ remember, abs are made in the kitchen! It is of the utmost importance to ditch all junk food and concentrate on clean eating, entailing a high protein, low carb diet in order to ward off any fat accumulation and stimulate muscle growth.
You should stick to lean meats such as poultry and ground beef, eat healthy fats from organic sources such as eggs and olive oil, and get plenty of fiber, protein, and low-calorie carbs from leafy vegetables, oats, and lentils.
Also, make sure to drink plenty of water during the day in order to promote healthy bodily functions and help your body cleanse itself, stay lean, strong, and build muscle. Remember, your body is made out of 76% water, and a decrease of just 1.5% in your water levels can have significant consequences.
Train to look like a Greek sculpture
The final piece of the beach body puzzle is regular exercise. Dieting and supplementation will help you shed unwanted fat and become lean, but your workout regime will make you into a true Greek god, worthy of your own marble statue.
Focus on total-body circuit workouts to make sure you are targeting every muscle group and to also minimize your time in the gym and boost post-workout recovery. You want to concentrate on building up your back and traps with rows and shrugs, your legs, and, of course, your booty with the best booty exercises such as glute bridges and deep squats. These areas of the body will give you an Adonis-like physique and will make you look as muscular as you possibly can in a short amount of time.
There are no magic tricks, secret potions, or workout plans, there is just hard work, devotion, and smart decision-making. Follow these essential steps and you will have created the best physique of your life in no time ‒ beach ready and born to party!
