Let’s admit that deep inside every wrestling maniac is a man who desires to have a body like Dwayne Johnson, aka ‘The Rock’. And those who have a thing for martial arts also talk about the finely carved body of Bruce Lee. And while we are on the subject of spectacular abs and well-developed triceps, then we can’t leave out our favorite Rambo, Sylvester Stallone, whose body has pulsated many a man’s heart.
A chiseled, muscular body appears on the to-do-list of every man at some point in time, and why not? Everyone deserves to flash some flesh on Instagram, Snapchat and anywhere possible – right? Even if you can’t reach the level of these men in Hollywood blockbusters, at least you can attempt to have a well-toned body which you yourself can love. And believe me, it isn’t rocket science! You can get the desired physique by following a fitness trail and body sculpting.
What is Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting is a kind of exercise to develop and shape the muscle. External weight, resistance, or your own body’s weight is used to stress the muscles to tone and sculpt them. It follows a simple and easy routine without the need of much exercising equipment. Besides developing muscles and toning your body, it also helps you to lose weight. What should you do to get maximum gains? Here are some body sculpting tips to help you achieve a body that slays:
Find the Right Exercises:
Many muscular physique wannabe men have preconceived perceptions about developing the body. They think that heavyweight lifting, chest press exercises and performing squats and lat pulldowns will give them their desired body shape. Well yes, they will end up gaining some good muscles, but they don’t get the desired toned body. Most of the time, they know little about the exercises and fitness procedures for men that will define areas like abs, triceps, and chest. Choose exercises fit for the sculpted physique to define the targeted areas, rather than performing exercises that will take your body nowhere.
Watch the Frequency:
The frequency of sculpting is different for beginners compared to those already working out. If you have just dived into the full-body sculpting regimen, begin with exercising four to five times a week. You can also start with three times a week. Less is better in the beginning. Don’t go all out with exercising twice a day or turn your bedroom into your gym. Your muscles get micro-tears when you lift weights, which requires at least 18-20 hours to recover. The recovery process of the muscle is the key to developing and strengthening muscles. Make sure you allow this process time.
Increase the frequency from 3-4 times a week to 6 times a week or daily once your body and muscles get used to handling extra effort and resistance.
Be Consistent in Diet:
Besides doing the right exercises, diet also plays a major role in defining body shape. External effort will only work if you feed your body the right things in the right amount. Set a dietary plan with the consultation of your trainer, then stick to it. For the best body transformation outcomes, consistency is the key to everything. You can’t choose two days of healthy eating, including high protein food and then break it with a day of fizzy drinks, fast food, and sugary snacks. Inconsistency brings everything back to zero. So, eat a healthy diet regularly without getting tempted by food that has the potential to mark your body transformation failure.
Well-toned bodies also exist out of the world of Hollywood blockbusters and Instagram fitness pages. You can achieve it by following the right procedures and sticking to them – try it!
