BEING SHREDDED, RIPPED, AND GENERALLY PERCEIVED AS SUPERLEAN IS NOT SOMETHING NEW TO THE REGULAR BODYBUILDER OR THOSE WHO STAY IN A CONSTANT STATE OF RIPTITUDE.
Whether you’re looking to get some difficult muscles to pop or trying to shred every last ounce of fat so your glutes resemble a piece of corrugated steel pipe, dialing in your diet and dialing up your training is a must. But before we delve into the training— and rather than explore the ritualistic approach of pretending bland dry food is exciting— let’s discuss some of the things that help create the chiseled appearance so highly desired by today’s iron warrior.

So while what you do today may be felt immediately, the lasting effects will show up a few days later. If you slowly turn up or turn down the volume, be it with food, liquid, or training, your body will respond as if it were completely normal, since any abrupt change would be much smaller than if you did something drastic.

Properly dialing in your diet, slowly cutting water, and following this program designed to build and maintain muscle while upping the calorie burn will help you achieve that rock-solid, ripped physique.
