7 Days To Getting Ripped, And Laid!
written by sean hyson
So… have you been enjoying your summer?
You look a little pudgy, bro. You been eating a few burgers?
Yeah, I could tell. How was your family reunion? Sure, I love noodle salad too. Did you leave some for anyone else? Haha, I’m just kidding.
Wait. Did you say 17 beers?? Who drinks that much? Seriously?
Haha, yeah, I can see you’ve laid off the cardio a little bit. It kinda sucks though. I mean, you worked all year for a beach body and now it’s ruined one week before you’re planning to go to… the beach.
But it may not be too late. Check this out…
Today I’ve got a guest post from Jesse Burdick. A powerlifter with elite totals in four different weight classes, he’s become a master of manipulating his weight without losing strength. He’s also a disciple of Kiefer, the brain behind the Carb-Backloading phenomenon I’ve written about so much lately.
Here’s Jesse’s 7-day plan to get you lean and cut again, and it is simple as can be. You just need the testicular fortitude to stick with it. Commit to it before your next shirtless occasion and you can undo a lot of damage in a short time. (Girls, this will work for you too—and don’t be afraid to go shirtless yourselves.)
7 Days to Getting Ripped (And Getting Laid!)
By Jesse Burdick
So you finally got invited to Suzie Fits-Nice-N-Tight’s summer bash and BBQ, huh? Congrats. Think we are gonna roll in soft?
Time bring out the big guns and walk in with your biceps set to stun. No half-assed effort here or you’ll ruin everything. Do it or don’t.
Day 1, 3, and 5: fasted cardio in the morning.
Intervals. 30–60 seconds all-out effort followed by 4–4:30 minutes at a recovery pace. Repeat 5 times, 6 if needed (or she is really hot).
Stick with your normal weight workouts and do them either hours after the cardio or on days in between.
Days 1–6.5 (the second half of the sixth day will be different)
Eat protein and fat foods at all meals.
7 a.m. Bacon and eggs with a side of bacon
10 p.m. Steak and eggs with a side of bacon
1 p.m. Bacon-wrapped chicken breast
4 p.m. Bacon-wrapped salmon fillets
7 p.m. until snoring. Cottage cheese and almonds
[[Can you tell Burdick is a man who likes his bacon?]]
Post workout you will eat only protein and veggies. There’s no room for carbs here because you need to lean out fast, and any blood sugar spike is going to slow down your ability to burn fat.
A note about caffeine. Feel free to abuse the hell out of coffee, energy drinks, and anything else you need to keep your eyes open and on the prize. A lot of the time when doing something like this, all you can think of is that next Starbucks fix when all you need is a quick bite to eat. So, keep that in mind after you have chewed off your fingernails and your nose is bleeding by 2 in the afternoon on Day 4.
From 5 p.m. until you pass out it’s time to toss it back again. Get after it and shove all those beautiful carbs right into your muscles. Rice, pasta, and potatoes.
Tomorrow night, when you are fist pumping, everyone will be in awe of your awesomeness.
