I bet you get it all the time BUT one thing for me is without being vain I think im in good shape, always have been. Ive done some crazy training but never even when competing had 6 pack abs, then I have mates who have em naturally.
Im a big believer in you gotta work with what you got, some people have it natural some don't, yes you can develop skill but if you have some of it naturally its gonna come a lot easier.
From what you know, what are the best ways to get shredded, as in get rid of overall body fat ?
Good question Isaac;
To keep it simple, you are both correct with some people have it "naturally" therefore don't have to 'work' as hard as someone who doesn't have it naturally.
When we are talking about getting shredded to bits, we must look at NUTRITION & RESISTANCE Training combined (although, I would put nutrition ahead but we are keeping it simple). Most people will say, "I've done everything and still NO abs, what the %$#@?!"
It is my belief that 97% of people don't look at nutrition GOOD enough in order to get the shredded look they desire because let's face it, getting shredded to bits takes a lot of DISCIPLINE andCOMMITMENT which most people don't have.
Here's where to start for the body fat to blow torch off your body;
- Eat every 2.5 to 3.5hrs upon waking
- Eat protein with EVERY meal
- Eat veggies with EVERY meal
- Eat starchy carbs i.e. potatoes/rice/bread/pasta ONLY AFTER you have trained
- Drink 2-3ltrs of H20 per day (NO fizzy drinks!)
- Do this 90% of the time in a 7day week i.e. if you have 6meals per day x 7days per week, that's 42meals per week.
90% of that is 38 feeding opportunities that NEED to align with #1-6. Once you have this sorted for 3wks we can look at portion control or other ways to continue to shred! If the above does not match 90% behavior then people don't have the right to pi$$ and moan about being FAT!
