Sculpting your body to its best form doesn’t take days or weeks, but a lot of time. However, once you are on the road and slowly achieving the physique you desire, perfecting it to the figure you dreamed of is much easier.
There are many ways on how to get shredded fast. But mind you, fast is not a synonym for shortcut. Remember, body building is a process. But if you want a speedier result, you have to double, or even triple, your effort and discipline.
To help you shred fast, Mark Barroso of Muscle and Fitness created a handy formula that will finish off your lean look:
GET IN PEAK CONDITION WITH THE 7-DAY SHRED
Start a 24-hour fast between noon and 2 p.m. That means don’t eat anything until the same time the next day. During this fast, you can drink water (flat or sparkling), black coffee, or tea.
Your body weight (BW) x 8 = Total Calories
BW x 2 = Calories from Protein
BW x 3 = Calories from Carbs
BW x 3 = Calories from Fat
Hydration: Drink an extra 2.5 liters of water than you normally do.
Training: Do low-intensity cardio (performed toward end of fast) for 60 minutes. Read more…
To complement the formula shared above, Muscle and Fitness compiled some sets of exercise that can further help you shred twice than your usual.
SUMMER FULL-BODY WORKOUT ROUTINE
Are you looking to perfect your beach body for the upcoming summer? If so, we have the right prescription just for you. It’s a full-body workout routine that utilizes a combination of high intensity types of resistance training combined and cardio.
Weighted resistance training is the best way to burn excess fat and calories when compared to cardio alone. Research has proven this, however if you want to maximize time spent in the gym, we suggest you combine everything into a “high octane” workout that transitions between the weights and some type of cardio. The routine is simple and can be varied depending on what you have available at your local gym. Read more…
To shred faster, you also need to adjust your diet. An article by John Meadows, C.I.S.S.N. of Men’s Fitness has an eight week shredding meal plan with recipes than you can follow plus some few important tips and reminders about food and your caloric intake:
The 7% Body-Fat Diet
We estimate that the average weightlifting guy walks around at about 15% body fat. This is well within healthy levels, but it’s not going to turn many heads on the beach. (Reminder: Beach abs are carved in winter.) To look that good, you need to get below 10%—the point at which most guys can see some definition—and preferably as low as 7%. That seems to be the magic number associated with adjectives like shredded, diced, and genetically gifted (haters always gon’ hate). The plan is simple: six-pack, 7%, eight weeks. let’s go.

When it comes to body building, healthy lifestyle, regular exercise, and balanced diet are the main factors involved for it to be a success. Now that you know how to get shredded fast, make sure to do it consistently to achieve result.
