The 6 Week Plan for a Perfect Body
This plan incorporates my best tips for fitness and diet. Trust me, you’re never going to get the body you’re looking for unless you attack things from both angles.
So here are some general diet tips you need to follow: Cut down on the carbs (and only go for whole grains when you do eat them), cut out the unhealthy fats, reduce your salt and sugar intake, and up the veggies and protein.
One of the best things you can do is invest in a great tasting whey protein supplement like Gaspari Nutrition Myofusion. It will help you meet your protein needs throughout this 6 week plan.
This 6 week plan is broken up into 2-week periods, so you’ll be working through 3 phases in total. Each phase involves changes to your diet and fitness routine to help you get in your best shape ever! Here we go…
Phase 1 (Weeks 1 & 2) – The Prep Work
Diet: Limit your carb intake to only 3 servings a day (estimate 3 pieces of whole grain bread). Make sure you’re not skipping breakfast, and snack healthy between meals and before bed. Nuts and non-fat Greek yogurt are great options.
Fitness: Hit the gym 4-5 days a week, alternating between the following resistance training workouts: legs & shoulders, back & biceps, chest & triceps, abs & core. Aim for 3 sets of 10-12 reps. Do 20 minutes of cardio before or after every workout.
Phase 2 (Weeks 3 & 4) – Bulking Up
Diet: Increase your carb intake to 4-5 servings a day, because your body’s going to need the extra fuel for these muscle building workouts! Also increase your overall calorie intake, making sure those are all healthy calories! That means your snacks are going to turn into small meals.
Fitness: Now you’re going to hit the gym 6 days a week, alternating between the following workouts: legs, back, biceps, chest, abs & core, triceps & shoulders. Aim for 4 sets of 8 reps, and keep your cardio at 20 minutes.
Phase 3 (Weeks 5 & 6) – Getting Ripped
Diet: Return to 3 servings of carbs a day, as this is your cutting phase. You should also increase your protein to maintain muscle mass. Add at least 2 or 3 servings of protein a day.
Fitness: Take an extra day’s rest, and hit the gym 5 days a week, alternating between legs, back, chest, arms & shoulders, and abs & core. Aim for 4 sets of 12-15 reps, and increase your cardio to 30 minutes a day.
Want an extra push?
If you’re looking for an extra push through this 6 week plan, I recommend adding a fat burning or energy supplement to your diet, like Irwin Naturals Green Tea Fat Metabolizer or USPLabs Jack3d. You should also take a multivitamin for overall health support. Optimum Opti-Men and Optimum Opti-Women are great options.
Finally, to support muscle growth and recovery after your workouts, you should seriously consider Scivation Xtend. It’s packed full of helpful amino acids to fuel your muscles!
