No one’s seen you without a shirt on—in public, anyway— for the past several months, and that’s probably just as well. Between holiday partying and the cold winter, you haven’t had much incentive to keep your belly in check. Until now.
Warm weather’s around the corner, and you might even have a vacation to some tropical destination planned. In short, you’re ready to start training again, so when that shirt does come off it’s not so big that people mistake it for a bed sheet.
So: How do you lose weight and improve your physique by Spring Break? It's simple: You'll want to shave off body fat, while improving your muscular definition. And the good news? You won't need to chain yourself to the treadmill to pull it off. That's why we created the six-week Spring Break Body Plan.
HOW THE SPRING BREAK BODY PLAN WORKS
The biggest mistake most make when trying to lose fat fast is performing high-rep workouts and overdoing cardio. The best way to increase your metabolism is to increase your muscle mass, so you burn more calories both during exercise and at rest—and that means heavier weights and lower reps. It also means hard exercises. Moves like the Zercher squat, farmer’s walk, and deadlift promote the release of testosterone and growth hormone, which tell your muscle cells to grow and your fat cells to shrink.
