Our 8-week ‘Get Cut’ program is an intermediate training plan that has been designed for men who are accustomed to going to the gym but want to train towards achieving a leaner, more ripped, physique. Expect to experience significant fat loss, an increase in lean muscle mass and a more ripped upper body and core.
Each workout week consists of a one day ‘off’, one day ‘on’ HITT cycle. The aim: to help burn fat after heavier, more intense, weight sessions. On ‘off’ days, LISS cardio sessions allow for a friendlier workout that gives you the option to customize the program. Mixed weight sessions, comprising of core circuits and compound lifts, compliment this cutting regime by encouraging the growth of lean muscle mass.
To get the best results, this workout schedule is also complemented with a comprehensive, user-friendly, fat loss nutrition guide. Designed to help guide meal choices, our unique food grid recommends the consumption of specific nutrient types across the day to help you reach the suggested nutrition targets. For this program, we recommend a reduced daily calorie intake comprising of approximately 175g protein, 160g (max) complex carbs and 45g (max) good fat.
Each workout consists of approximately 40 minutes of intense weight training that focusses on compound lifts and isolation exercises. Weight sessions are either followed by an intense 20 minute HITT finisher (on upper body days) or 20 minute LISS cool down (on lower body days). Using this mixture of aerobic and anaerobic training helps build and retain muscle mass whilst burning fat.
Here is what you can expect to see at the end of your 8-week transformation:
• Tighter and more defined abs
• A significant reduction in overall body fat
• An increased metabolism
• An overall reduction in muscle fatigue
• A moderate gain in body muscle
• Those regularly engaging in intense physical activity will notice larger muscle gain
• Those regularly engaging in low-impact exercise will notice intensified fat loss
The golden rule of any cutting program is that nutrition trumps exercise! As a result, achieving these goals rests with a low-calorie diet that comprises of fewer carbs but more protein. Since a reduction in carbs equates to less expendable energy in the gym, following our recommended nutrition regime may seem challenging. To make your life easier though we decided to ditched meal plans! We know that they are near impossible to stick to so, have instead, provided general nutrition goals that are designed to encourage optimal muscle gain alongside fat loss. The rationale for this method is simple: 'it's not how you reach your daily targets but rather that you do'.
To reach these targets our plan recommends 7 medium sized meals throughout the day, each accompanied with a suggested mealtime. Each meal also recommends a ‘meal composition’, being the optimal nutrition types that meal should consist of.
Finally, we also provide you with exclusive offers from our trusted nutrition partners: My Protein and Cute. The supplements we recommended for this plan include Green Tea Extract and CLAs. As with all our programs though, our supplement recommendations are guidelines that should not substitute a balanced diet.
