How to get ripped - The Blueprint
Getting ripped means losing lots of fat on your body while preserving the muscle.
Giving you nice looking ripped physique. To accomplish this there are a few things we need to focus on.
1. Body composition
To get ripped you must become a pro at tracking your body composition. Best way to do that is measuring it on a weekly basis.
Body composition tells you how much of your body is made up of fat, muscle, water, and bone. We need to make sure we increase muscle mass and lower fat mass so we get ripped.
How do we lower fat and preserve muscle?
Through diet and exercise.
What diet helps you get Lean?
The best diet to get ripped will consist of high protein, low carb, and moderate fat.
Once you figure out your caloric needs to maintain your current weight, simply decrease those by 250-500 calories and monitor your progress.
Make sure your diet consists of the right amount of macronutrients you need. For example, if you need 2000 calories to lose weight make sure you get the right amount of protein, carbs, and fat.
Try 40% protein, 30% carbs, and 30% fat. Those calories should come from the right sources of protein, carbs, and fats.
You don't want to get your carb and fat sources from cake, candy, and cookies. Aim to eat highly nutritious foods like potatoes, eggs, lean meats, veggies, fruit, rice etc.
How can I get Shredded at home?
Getting ripped at home is definitely possible. You can use any exercise program like p90x or anything similar to burn calories.
Or you could get a treadmill or bike for home and use it to get into a calorie deficit. Exercise combined with a good diet will easily help you get ripped.
How ripped do I have to be to see my abs?
To see their abs most people need to get to around 10% body fat. I know for me once I got to 9-10% I was able to see mine. The only way to know for sure is to get your body fat down and see how you look.
What supplements help you get Cut?
You should now know to get ripped you need a good diet in place. As well as a consistent calorie burning workout routine.
Now we can build on that and add in some supplements to help speed up the results.
The supplements I recommend have pros and cons which I'll list below. This will help you pick the supplement that is ideal for you.
Disclaimer: I strongly believe that you don't need supplements to get ripped.
A lot of the fat burners on the market come with really sour side effects and they might not work for everyone.
Some may help but it all depends on your body, because we are all different. Anyway, on to the supplements.
Animal Cuts didn't work for some users and they found it burned in all the wrong areas. It gave some users heartburn and acid reflux which made them feel it was a waste of money. Add jitters and the fact that it came unsealed for some we can conclude that anyone with heart issues stays away.
On the bright side, there are many users who stand by this product's ability to help them shed belly fat. They also claim better mood, energy, and the ability to control their appetite. Some also say this is a strong product so if you're not a seasoned athlete you should beware.
For a product that claims to help you sleep faster a lot of users felt the opposite. In fact, many say this kept them up into the wee hours of the night. Also gave some nausea, vomit, twitching, leg cramps and made it difficult to wake up.
It's not all bad though because some did experience improved sleep quality, weight loss, sugar cravings suppressed, less bloating and great customer service.
You may just have to try this one to see if its a right fit for you.
Burn XT is one of the popular fat burners out there but unfortunately, it didn't work for everyone. Some users complained of nausea, profuse sweating, clamoring, cold sweats and stomach ache. Not the results one is looking for one paying such a hefty price tag.
Now for the good news. Some people did lose weight which is the goal of the supplement in the first place. Many felt a decrease in appetite without the jitters.
They also felt an increase in focus, energy, alertness and really enjoyed the great customer service.
We believe customer service is really important when it comes to these types of products because there's a chance it won't work for you.
In that case, you want to deal with a company that goes the extra mile to make you satisfied. Whether that's offering more tips or simply refund your money.
Next up is Evlution Nutrition's Lean Mode. Big promises but does it miss the mark?
Unfortunately, many users claim this gave them subpar to no results. The only thing they got was nausea and stomach cramps. Oh yeah and the occasional missing pills which is just horrible. If you pay for something the least you should get is what you paid for, not less.
Despite the downers, this is an all natural non-stimulant product which means no jitters or sleeping problems.
It works by helping suppress your appetite and curb cravings. This is a good approach and many have lost weight this way.
Vintage Burn is really really popular. However, many say it gives them headaches, diarrhea, stomach pains, nausea, constipation, and anxiety.
One user even claims the company sold their email information to other companies and they began to receive harmful emails containing malware, trojans and other viruses.
If true, that is really horrible. No one wants unsolicited emails.
On the bright side this all natural supplement is popular for a reason. Many users claim it has helped them with weight loss, curbing appetite and increased energy without crash or jitters.
Despite its hefty price tag, this may help you reach your goals. Just beware of the long list of side effects.
This CLA supplement is also another popular option. Unforntally, it too comes with a long list of side effects. From gas and a gurgling stomach to serious stomach pains, diarrhea, and profuse sweating. One diabetic warned all diabetics to stay away from this supplement.
Some did experience better sleep, weight loss, energy, more control over cravings and even got a free bottle.
But what's the use of a free bottle if it contains so many negative consequences?
When it comes to getting ripped every little bit helps. A good diet combined with a strict exercise routine is the best route to take.
Although it's better to be patient and stick to the diet and exercise alone, there are supplements that may aid the process.
However, they do come with side effects and results are not guaranteed because everyone's body is different.
The reviews above give you a more realistic view of what you can expect.
