How Bodybuilders and Fitness Competitors Get So Lean

So many people want to know how they can lose weight and get in great shape fast! As a result, some of them start looking for the 'latest and greatest' diet to follow or decide to buy one of the useless pieces of exercise equipment featured on infomercials that promise to give you a flat stomach in only 5 minutes a day!

How bodybuilders get lean for competition

The fact is that getting in great shape requires a lot of time and effort; there are NO short-cuts! Plus, it also requires use of the correct principles.

Best of all, weight-loss/ fat-burning principles work 100% of the time and they work for everyone! They are simply based on fundamental physiological laws that govern the human body. Once you know the principles, apply them to your lifestyle, and allow enough time for them to work, you get amazing results plain and simple! That is how bodybuilders and fitness competitors get so lean; they simply follow the correct principles and do so for extended periods of time. This of course allows them to stay in great shape virtually all year round.

A good example of a professional fitness competitor who stays in great shape year-round is Jaco De Bruyn (not pictured) from South Africa. Professional bodybuilders and fitness competitors like Jaco create a very specific lifestyle for themselves which revolves around training, nutrition, and supplementation along with various other factors, i.e. sleep, low stress levels, minimal (or no) alcohol, etc.

These professionals follow a lifestyle that few people have the discipline to stick to long-term. Nevertheless, even if you decide to incorporate just a few of their strategies into your own lifestyle you are sure to get outstanding results too.

Here's just a few of the top principles to follow if you're keen to get in great shape:

  • Eat regular meals consisting of natural foods and a good mix of proteins, carbs, and fats
  • Minimise your alcohol intake
  • Avoid all excessively processed foods
  • Exercise every day
  • Perform both aerobic exercise and resistance exercise
  • Supplement your diet with a good-quality multivitamin/ mineral supplement, fish oils, and antioxidants
  • Sleep well each night
  • By following each of these basic principles as closely as possible you will be amazed at how quickly your body will start to change.
