How To Get Ripped Fast – Key Points:

– Start by calculating how much body fat you need to lose to reach “ripped” level of body fat. (7-10%) Example website to help you: http://1percentedge.com/ifcalc/

– If you’re already training for a while assuming 80% of the weight loss to be fat and 20% to be muscle when estimating the total body weight you need to drop.

– Overweight beginners or those coming back from a training break might gain muscle while losing fat.

– If you are above 12% of body fat aim to drop about 1-1.5% of your Body Weight per week.

– Determine how many calories you need to maintain your current body weight.

How To Get Ripped Fast - Calorie balance

Don’t forget that being a caloric deficit is the key to losing body-weight.

– Reduce your Daily caloric intake by 10-15% until you get to 1-1.5% of Body weight drop per week.

– Setup your daily macronutrient targets. Protein is the most important one. Use tools like MyFitnessPal to help you get an idea.

– Fiber is the key to good health and satiety. Aim to get 10-15 grams of fiber per 1000 kcal from a variety of veggies, fruits, legumes, and grains on a daily basis. You can track this again with MyFitnessPal.

– 80-90% of your calories should be spent on whole unprocessed foods you love to eat. And the remaining 10-20% calories spend on whatever else you want to eat/drink while hitting your daily calorie/macronutrient targets.

– Eat as many meals as you like. What really matters is consistency
with your daily calorie, macronutrient, and fiber goals. Try out things like Intermittent Fasting if you like to eat less frequently and have bigger meals.

– Supplements are not needed. However, they can help you reach a daily goal easier. for example: Reach your protein target with whey supplements. Additionally, things like creatine, multivitamins, omega 3 and vitamin D are good to have for most people.

– Consistency and getting stronger through resistance training are crucial for building and retaining muscle mass. Don’t miss workouts, and make sure you’re adding weight to the bar over time. Moreover, focus on learning the correct technique.

– Cardio is not required. It can be a helpful tool to create a caloric deficit. Use in moderation when needed instead of cutting more kcal from food.

– Don’t forget to measure your progress. You can’t manage what you don’t measure.

– For optimal results get as much sleep as your body needs. Typically around 8h will be fine.

– Don’t forget to take De-loads with training. Every 5th or 6th week
of training take it a bit easier.

– Set diet deadlines for every 7-8 weeks of successful dieting. At that point take a diet break to maintenance calories to recover both physically and mentally.

This is all you need to know to get ripped fast. Now it’s time to take action!

  • Great article and video. “Reduce your Daily caloric intake by 10-15% until you get to 1-1.5% of Body weight drop per week.” I like this gradual approach must more than extreme drops. I think it is a lot smarter to take things little by little so you adjust as needed.

    Hello i am loosing good weight and gaining good muscle just with diet + gym everyday + protein shakes zero fat. I am thinking to loose even faster the fat because i still have a lot, i look thing and strong but under t-shirt im fluffy and fatty but together strong and muscle. what i was thinking about it was to stop gym and start MMA which has a lot of aerobic and hitting exercises but ill not lift weights but everyday after the MMA ill drink my protein shake and keep my protein with food and supplement everyday, but ill not lift weights. So what do you think? its better aerobic for 2-3 months with reaching the protein limits but not lifting weights for maximum weight loss and fitness or make both MMA and gym or only gym or MMA 2-3 months and then Gym to get big? Thank you.

    • Resistance training in the gym is something I would highly recommend because you’ll be able to retain muscle mass and even build muscle mass which is critical point when it comes to long-term maintenance of lower body fat.

    • Resistance training in the gym is something I would highly recommend because you’ll be able to retain muscle mass, get stronger and even build muscle mass (if you’re a beginner) and all of these things are helpful for long-term maintenance of lower body fat.
