Get Lean For Summer

May 29, 2019

We are one month away from the start of summer so you’ve got 4 weeks to ramp it up and get lean for summer. Here’s 7 Quick-Fix Hacks for really toning up right in time for the beach.

Super-hydrate!

Purchase a 32 ounce hydro-flask and try to drink 3-4 of them per day filled with water. If you really want to lean up, get strict with your water intake.

Lean happens in the kitchen.

Try the following. Consume 500 calories for breakfast, a 150 calorie snack, 500 calories for lunch, a 150 calorie snack and 500 calories for breakfast to account for a 1800 daily caloric intake. Adjust up or down based on your daily caloric expenditure and your goals. Measure and track your food consumption to make sure you aren’t slipping in excessive calories without even realizing. Distribute those calories throughout the day making sure you are consuming all macro-nutrients including lean protein (20-30 grams per meal), quality carbs like fruits, veggies, oatmeal, brown rice, quinoa, sweet potatoes and healthy fats (20-30% of your daily caloric intake). Get strict and disciplined with your nutrition and you’ll lean up quickly.
