Lose your body fat

For getting a ripped body you have to reduce your body fat percentage. Excess weight or flabby belly won't let you achieve your dream. The first thing first you have to lose your body fat or body weight.

Now when it comes to losing fat, diet crushes the scene. Exercises especially cardio are great for losing fat but they are not as effective as the diet.

Even my favorite doctor and weight loss expert, Dr. Eric Berg DC said, exercise is just about 15% of the work when it comes to weight loss and the remaining 85% is all about the diet.

Nowadays there are plenty of popular diets that you can follow. But Eric Berg recommends always having Keto Diet. Because the keto diet works really well for most people, doesn't need too many requirements, and is completely safe from a health perspective. 

If you already know about keto or just heard the name, I recommend you to watch Dr. Berg's video below about the Keto diet for beginners.

Now come to the next step, Strength Training.

Do strength training

There are many types of exercises. Some of them are useful to just become healthy, another used to build muscle and strength, while others improve balance and coordination.

Though you want a ripped body, you have to build lean muscle. So strength training comes first. Research shows that strength training or simply gym exercise helps build muscle the most compared to other types of exercises like cardio or balance.

You may know that the main fact about muscle gain is to work a muscle hard to its limit, then give it proper rest and nutrition. Which in time will increase the muscle gain. To do strength training, you have to attend a gym, whether it is at hooutdoorsutdoor.

Strength exercises like push-ups, squats, burpees, deadlifts, and bench presses are super ein building to build muscle. An interesting fact about strength training is that not only it will build muscle and strength but also increases your metabolism, growth hormone, and mental wellness. Which will inspi  you to work again.

The US Department of Health and Human Services says, "you should strength training your major muscle groups at least twice a week". Doing three times a week is also good. The main fact is, if you want to get shredded you should follow a workout schedule, where you will get proper training, recovery, and nutrition at a balance.

A gym trainer can help you the most. But if you want a workout plan to get shredded at home anyway, you can follow this workout plan.

One worth remembering thing is that, don't do overtraining to get results first. Doing excess work always can't give a fast result. Where it can delay the working process.

Remember that, warming up, cooling down, stretching, and mental wellness is important than training. itself. These are the things that will prevent injury and keep you safe to reach your goal. So don't forget to 05-minute warmup before workouts and 5 minutes stretch after the session.

If you follow these above 2 steps with the last step below, you will definitely get the best result (backed by science and my experience).

Eat a flexible diet

Who you are?

If you think clearly, who are you? You will find that "you are nothing but what you eat". I mean really, what do we eat that we are.

It's not complicated.

First let me tell you, what is a flexible diet. In simple words, a flexible diet is an eating plan where you will get the right amount and the right portion of carbs, protein, vitamins, and nutrients foods at the right time.

However always a diet isn't responsible for weight loss or weight gain. It depends on much more factors than just the diet. Your age, profession, genetic function, hormones, and a lot of other things work to define that. But diet is responsible the most.

Now come to the flexible diet. When you will do strength training or functional exercises, your body will demand a lot of energy.

Energy doesn't mean just carbs. Carbs, fruits, vegetables, protein, minerals, water, and supplements. A whole combination of the right amount. So you have to eat a balanced diet, where you will get all of them, especially the Protein.

The Journal of International Society of Sports Nutrition published an article that said, for most exercisers, eating 1.4 to 2 grams of protein per kilo weight of body weight is enough to maintain and improve muscle growth.

So be sure about your protein intake while you are trying to have a ripped/shredded body.

Of course, your gym trainer will help you to understand that. But if you want to eat a flexible diet on your own that will be worthwhile too.

Sleeping is the most important thing you should care about when it comes to building muscle or doing strength training. A proper sleep and recovery period will help you reduce your muscles and mental stress, increase your muscle gain and give your a chill.

If you don't get proper sleep or a rest period, your cortisol level will go higher. Then you feel more hungry and stressed, which can break your diet and exercise discipline.

So it is always a good idea (not only for shredded but for a healthy life) to get at least 7 hours of sleep.

I like to sleep 7 hours every day in 2 periods. Six hours relax to sleep at the night and 1 hour of fresh Nap every afternoon. It works really well for me, you can try it too.
