One of the hardest things to do in bodybuilding is getting that ripped look. Especially getting the look like the pros do where everything is balanced and symmetrical and of course you'll want to have killer abs to go with that.
Well of course getting that look is not easy and it is going to take work in 3 areas to make it happen, now Iím going to assume here that you are already muscular, because if not its going to be hard to look ripped isn't it? So the 3 areas you are going to need to look at are - weights, nutrition and aerobic routine.
So lets get started with weights:
If you have the size in place but are lacking that cut look here are some ideas to start implementing into your workouts to increase the ripped look
You need to train between 60 and 90 minutes to burn the extra calories
Get more isolated movements into your routine for caloric expenditure
Maintain your strength to ensure you do not lose muscle mass
For extra energy expenditure include drop sets and pre - exhaust sets
Spend more time on each muscle group and split your body parts over 5 days
Eat approx 10x your body weight in calories for fat loss
For every pound of lean muscle mas you need at least 1-1.5 grams of protein
Eat a 1:1 ratio of proteins to carbs in the day.
Make sure you eat healthy fats only such as olive oil, avacodos nuts etc.
During workouts only consume liquid carbs
Consume solid carbs in the forms of vegetable and fruit
Do your cardio straight away after doing your weights
Mix your cardio up - do long slow and interval cardio work
If you need to you can go up to doing your cardio 7-10 times a week (this is quite extreme though)
For faster fat loss do your cardio on an empty stomach
Make sure that you sip on a protein drink to ensure that you don't lose muscle
So there you go, put that into place and you'll have a killer body that is totally ripped before you know it - if you would like to learn more about how to get a great body then you must sign up for our free bodybuilding magazine below.
