The fitness industry is growing with every passing day and everyone wants to get a beach-ready six-pack bod in the shortest period of time. It’s crazy how folks dump their money into whatever or whoever that promises shortcuts to get a six pack these days. Let’s cut the BS and get to the point. Getting a beach-ready body is not easy. If it were, you’d find men flaunting their six-pack on the beach all the time and that’s certainly not the case.
I’m going to tell you the 5 most important things you actually need to do to get a beach body.
Like I mentioned, getting a six-pack is not easy. To achieve it, you must plan your things before your actions. Be realistic with your goals and stick to it. The best way would be to focus on short-term goals which lead to your end goal. For example, your goal is to get lean by summer then your short-term goal should be to lose 2 to 4 pounds by a month.
2. Behaviour And Lifestyle
If you want to get fit you must have a proper systematic routine per day. Your desire, dedication and discipline should be in a triangle. Adding to that you must give yourself some room to socialize with your friends and family. You don’t have to restrict yourself all the time from social events or outings.
Fat loss pills, fat burners or cutting your carbs is not the answer.
The secret sauce to get fit comes from your dietary calorie intake. Food should be your number one priority. Your body needs the energy to move around or conduct any physical work and that energy comes from food. Don’t starve yourself. Muscles are built when you feed them with a proper combination of necessary nutrients i.e. protein, carbs and fats. Eat in a calorie deficit and do it consistently.
If you want to look good with muscles and low body fat, training is your best friend when it comes to building muscle and preserving it. Without resistance training, your body won’t be able to hold the muscle you already have. Get yourself into a gym, train smartly and focus on progression. Make it a daily habit.
Every human being’s best recovery system is sound sleep. It is one of the most forgotten muscle builders. You train, you fuel your body with food, you grow when you sleep and recover from your training stimulus. Good sleep can increase your overall performance. Get at least 7 to 8 hours of undisturbed sleep every night. To conclude, set some realistic goals, upgrade your lifestyle to a healthy one, follow your diet and gym regime religiously and sleep well.
Because this will help you not just get a beach body but also stay that way for long.
