GET LEAN WITH A WELL BALANCED DIET

Providing you with a more exciting alternative to plain 'chicken and rice', here, we go through a simple diet plan that'll help get you lean and shredded in no time at all.

As we stated in our previous article, you really don't need to spend money on gym memberships to get into shape. You don't need to be a fan of sport either. All you need is to set aside some time for your workouts and make sure you are eating the right foods.

If you're looking to get that desirable Brad Pitt from (Fight Club) athletic but muscular physique, then follow our simple diet plan that, along with a good workout routine, to help get you shredded in a matter of weeks! In this third part of our guide, we recommend this diet plan... 



Breakfast

A small tub of low fat cottage cheese, with a handful of unsalted nuts (almonds or cashews are good), and a banana.  
The cottage cheese and nuts both provide your body with a good amount of protein, essential for muscle recovery and gain. A banana will boost your energy levels and make you feel full.

Lunch

Set yourself up for the afternoon with a portion of skinless chicken (one breast) and a salad. Also have half an avocado or cucumber.  You'll get plenty of protein with the chicken, and lots of excellent fat-free fillers with the salad.  The avocado provides your body with good, healthy fats.

Mid afternoon snack

Consider a tablespoon of peanut butter with a green apple. Peanut butter has good fats in it as well as a high amount of protein - just be sure to pick a sugar-free one.  The apple will give you a sweet hit, without any bad sugars. 

Dinner

A lean tuna fillet with sweet potatoes, green beans and broccoli. This meal should be eaten after your workout, ideally, and with plenty of clean protein in the fish and the broccoli.  The sweet potatoes are slow releasing carbs, excellent if you're trying to lose weight. 

Supper

It's always a good idea to have a little snack before going to bed, in order to keep your metabolism ticking over.  A low fat natural Greek yoghurt with some protein powder mixed in would make an excellent supper. 


Remember to keep your meals small and simple, eat regularly throughout the day, and stay off white bread and sugar in particular.

GET SHREDDED WITH HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING

Here, we go through a simple high intensity interval training (HIIT) session that'll help get you lean and shredded in no time at all. And what's more, it won't cost you a penny!
 

As we stated in our previous article, you really don't need to spend money on gym memberships to get into shape. You don't need to be a fan of sport either.  All you need is to set aside 25 minutes, three days a week, and you're half way there.

If you're looking to get that desirable Brad Pitt from (Fight Club) athletic but muscular physique, then follow our training guide that'll get you shredded in a matter of weeks! In this second part of our guide, we recommend trying this HIIT session... 


For each set, exercise for 45 seconds and then rest for 20 seconds. Repeat for 20 minutes, with a final one minute burst at the end.


Mountain Climbers

Start off with some intense mountain climbers, making sure your form is good and your legs are pumping hard.  Mountain climbers benefit the whole physique and are particularly good for the abs and your lower back.




Squats

Making sure you squat as far down as possible, be sure to pump those legs fast in order to get the full burn. Squats are excellent for your legs, core and buttocks.  They'll help get you shredded in no time. 




Star Jumps

Keep those legs pumping with a set of super-fast star jumps.  This is a great alternative to the skipping rope.  Star jumps is a very effective fat burner, so make sure you give it your all. 




Burpees 

This one is going to hurt, but with no pain comes no gain.  Doing burpees will be very difficult at first, but as you get fitter you'll be able to do more of them, and quicker too.  This exercise is great your the whole body, from chest and arms all the way down to your core and legs. 




Cruches

Bust out some fast crunches to get those abs and core working overtime.  Try and crunch as fast as possible, working through the burn.  You'll have your six pack in no time at all. 



Repeat this cycle until the 20 minutes is up. Finish off with an intense one minute running on the spot. 

Stay tuned for the third part of our guide to getting the perfect physique.

BUILD MUSCLE WITH THESE 5 KEY TRAINING METHODS



Here we go through some simple training methods that'll help get you in tip-top condition in no time at all.  And what's more, it won't cost you a penny!  

Let's face it, we all want to look good, especially during the hotter months of the year, but looking good takes a heck of a lot of effort and pain.  It's all very well for those folks who get a buzz from working out, but it's usually a different story for the rest of us mortals who find it difficult to find the time and energy to get into shape.

If truth be told, you don't actually need to spend money on gym memberships to get into shape.  You don't need to be a fan of sport either. All you need is to set aside 25 minutes, three days a week, and you're half way there.  

If you're looking to get that desirable Ryan Reynolds athletic but muscular physique, then we'll guide you through three parts of an easy to follow training problem that'll get you shredded in a matter of weeks! In the first part of our guide, we recommend trying these 5 simple exercises...

1. Press-Ups
There really is no substitute for doing press-ups. Your chest is the biggest muscle group in your body, and a good chest is the key to a good physique.  Bust out 25-40 full press-ups (whatever your maximum limit is), then drop to your knees and bust out 10-15 more (again, whatever your limit is), and then finish off on 10 mini press-ups for maximum burn.


2. Shoulder-Press
Good shoulders and upper chest are key factors to looking good, therefore shoulder exercises should be a key part of your training.  Get a couple of 5kg dumbbells and simply raise them from your shoulders to the sky. Bust out about 30-40 reps (whatever your limit is), then finish off on 10 mini-shoulder-presses for maximum burn.


3. Lateral Raise
Begin standing straight, arms down by your side holding the 5kg dumbbells. Then raise the dumbbells up so both your arms are horizontal. Repeat about 25-30 times (whatever your limit is). Good lats will make you look more athletic in clothes. 



4. Triceps Dips
Working out your triceps is a great way to finish off a set. Simply lean backwards against a solid standing table, dip your body down and then push up.  Try and bust out 40-50 of these in order to feel the full burn. 


5. Sit-Ups
There are literally millions of ways you can work your abs, so this is something that you will need to decide on yourself.  Remember though, a million sit-ups a day won't get you the six-back you desire. Working many other parts of your body will also benefit your stomach muscles. 

Repeat this cycle four times.  The workout should take you about 20 minutes. 

Stay tuned for the second part of our guide to getting the perfect physique.

MALE GROOMING SUMMER PICKS





Here are 5 male grooming summer essentials to help get you through the hotter months of the year, feeling and looking better than ever!

The most drastic change in your grooming routine usually occurs in the summer season. With temperatures rocketing, summer is the time of year when you really should be taking extra pride in the grooming products you use. After all, it's not just about looking good - it's also more importantly about keeping your skin, hair and body as healthy as possible.  So, here are five grooming essentials to consider this summer... 


1. SPF 20 Face Lotion

Be sure to keep your face hydrated and fully protected during summer. Our faces are constantly exposed to the sun, therefore using a good SPF 20 throughout the day will keep your facial skin protected from the harmful UV rays, thus preventing unwanted premature ageing skin. 

2. SPF 30 Hair Cream

Not many men realise it, but too much exposure to the sun can leave your hair damaged. Some men even experience severe shedding during the hot climate, therefore you should always look to keep your locks protected with a deep working SPF 30 cream on your strands.

3. Tinting Moisturiser

You may think using a tinting moisturiser would be pointless, but summer is actually the best time to use one.  Tinting moisturisers can even out the skin complexion and cover slight skin burn, to give you a healthier and more attractive skin tone. they also hydrate your face  which is a very welcome bonus.  

4. Scalp Therapy Serum

If you suffer from early stages of male pattern baldness or just seem to shed more hair in the summer months, then get hold of a good hair growth serum that works deep into your hair to give you the best possible chance of maintaining a good, thick set of locks.  KGF, saw palmetto and biotin are all excellent hair beneficiary ingredients used in HR23+ Serum, that prevent hair fall and encourage health growth. 

5. Hair Thickening Shampoo

There are literally tons of shampoo brands out there that can hugely benefit your hair from June to September. Be sure to grab a good hair thickening shampoo that is designed to energise hair cells and encourage better hair growth.  A decent shampoo is also great for overall skin health.
