17 Apr 7 Fit Tips To Get Ready For Summer
Summer is just upon us! If you’re like most people, it’s go time to get ready for swimsuit season. Here’s our top 7 tips to help you get ready for summer!
7 Fit Tips To Get Ready For Summer
Tip 1: Follow A Fat Loss Meal Plan
If you need to lose body fat, it is imperative that you are at a calorie deficient until you reach your body fat goals. Last month we wrote a comprehensive article that will provide you everything that you need to know: The Last Diet You’ll Ever Need To Be On
Tip 2: Train Smart: Strength Training and Metabolic Conditioning
While just performing cardio 3-6 times a week will help you lose weight, focusing on smart strength training and metabolic conditioning will help you get the lean and athletic look that most people desire. Consider our 21 Day Metabolic Fast Track program to help you get started.
Tip 3: Sleep 7-8 Hours A Night
This is the foundation of stress management and is vital to healthy hormone levels that prevent you from having your best bod this summer. Start with going to bed and waking up at the same time every night. Try earplugs and melatonin if your sleep quality is suffering.
Tip 4: Drink Water
Aim to drink at least half of your body weight in ounces of water per day. Ex: A 130 lb women should aim for at least 65 ounces of water, or about 2 liters a day. Bonus points for electrolyte infused water.
Tip 5: Track Your Progress
Take progress pictures every 4 weeks to keep you motivated and on track. If you want to quantify progress, a weight scale is good if you have 10 or more pounds to lose, but ideally you would have access to a quality body fat test machine.
Tip 6: Minimize Alcohol Until Memorial Weekend
Alcohol (and what it’s mixed with) are significantly more calorie dense that people realize. Having 2-4 low calories drinks a week isn’t going to make much of an impact, but for many, this is the big thing that is holding them back from getting the results they want.
Tip 7: Reward Yourself
Plan to reward yourself for your hard work inside and outside of the gym with some kind of reward. Maybe it’s a new pair of kicks, some splurge meals or drinks memorial weekend, or something that you’ve wanted for a while. In times of wanning motivation (such as a meal out with friends on a Saturday night), this could be the thing that makes you say things like “wait…is eating this more important than reaching my goal?” and hopefully stay the course.
You don’t need to be flawless with these 7 tips, just strive to give good effort everyday and you’ll look and feel amazing this summer 🙂
