4 Tips to Get Ripped Quick

February 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 152

If you want to get ripped quick, you've found exactly the resource you need. Follow the tips below and you'll get a ripped six pack and body in no time.

All of these tips revolve around ways to lose fat fast. Since if you are carrying too much fat, no matter how much muscle you have, you'll still look chubby. Lowering your body fat percentage to something obscenely low is the key.

And here's exactly how to lower your body fat...

1. Eat Less

Yes, this is the cornerstone of all weight loss strategies. Eat less!

I don't care how you do it. You can eat 6 small meals a day, eat a vegetarian diet, eat only during an 8 hour chunk of the day - whatever!

There's a lot of misinformation out there about diets. But the bottom line is that calories count - anybody telling you anything different is trying to sell you something.

So, somehow, by hook or by crook, eat less. That will help you lose fat and reveal your muscles.

2. Be Cool...

Not necessarily 'cool' like the cool kid at school. But literally cold.

You see, your body uses a lot of energy for thermogenesis (to create heat). Not layering up in the winter, drinking cold water, lowering your thermostat, and taking cold showers are all great ways to burn more calories.

It's hard to quantify exactly how many calories you'll burn getting cold. This depends on how cold you get, how much energy your body naturally burns to stay warm, and a host of other factors.

But if you seriously want to get ripped quick, try this out. Getting cold will burn more calories, and (if you get cold regularly) you will notice the results.

3. Exercise More

This is a time tested way of losing fat - exercise! Exercise takes effort, and that burns calories, and burning more calories than you take in means that you'll lose fat.

Also, if you're dieting down and losing fat, weight training specifically will signal your body that you're using your muscles intensely. This means that you'll maintain more of your muscle as you diet down, which will get you ripped quick.

Too extreme of a diet, especially without exercise, will cause your muscles to break down. Which you defiantly don't want! So, add exercise to burn calories and keep your muscles in fighting shape.

4. Get Patient, D*MN IT!

When you're just a few pounds of fat away from begin ripped, that's when things get complicated. If you lose weight too fast you'll lose too much muscle. But this means more time dieting, which most people can't stand.

The key, for that final little bit, is to go gradually and eat a diet that you are happy eating regularly. That way you'll be able to seamlessly merge your dieting into maintenance and putting one muscle (without fat) at the end of your diet.

This takes control and patience. But some things are best done gradually - otherwise you'll reach your goal but be ravenously hungry. You'll relapse, eat a ton of crummy food, and be right back where you started.
