To get ripped, you need to build muscle and reduce body fat so the well-defined muscle outline is visible. It’s hard to get ripped in 3 months, but not impossible. It does depend on where you’re starting. If you’re out of shape and 100 pounds overweight, there’s no healthy way to achieve it. You can, however, come closer to that fitness level you desire. Getting ripped requires dedication and the adoption of a healthier lifestyle. It takes more than just muscle-building exercises to get the six-pack and bulging biceps.
Start with a healthy diet.
If you have excess fat covering your body, you might have supreme muscle development but nobody will be able to see it. The fat will hide it. You can’t build muscle tissue if your diet is too calorie restricted. It requires balance, providing enough nutrition to build muscles, yet also a small reduction in calories to lose fat. Go for 0.5 to 0,7 grams of protein per pound of body weight. Avoid sugary treats and high-fat foods. Focus on eating lean protein, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Don’t forget to include pre and post-workout snacks. Our nutritionist will help create a diet that will build muscle while burning fat.
Your workout plays an important role.
HIIT and circuit training workouts bring the quickest results. There are benefits to both. In circuit training, you perform several types of exercises in a row, with little or no rest between each one. If you time the circuit, it becomes a cardio workout that burns tons of calories. You can combine dips, squats, pullups, pushups, bodyweight rows, and lunges. HIIT training joggles the intensity from peak intensity to moderate recovery intensity. Both types of workouts burn fat and build strength, but HIIT is the best for quick results. Add it to traditional strength-building workouts.
Get plenty of rest.
Your muscles require time to heal. It’s why you avoid working the same muscle groups two days in a row. You also have to get adequate sleep at night. As you sleep, your body does repairs, including repairing the microtears in muscles. Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night. The rest helps you recover, build faster and put your full energy into your workout.
- Don’t forget to hydrate frequently. Drinking plenty of water helps flush out toxins and boosts your metabolism. It can fill you up to prevent overeating. Try to drink at least eight to ten glasses of water a day.
- Schedule everything. It takes dedication and consistency to get ripped. Have a plan of action and follow it closely.
- Consistency is the key to success for all fitness programs. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see immediate results.
