Q: What Is The Easiest Way To Lose Weight?

A: The easiest, safest way to lose weight quickly would be to first work out the calories you need in a day, and then reduce this by 20-25%. That’s how many calories you’re going to eat per day. This is general advice, and there would be a lot of individual considerations to think about but it’s a great starting point. 

Q: What Is The Quickest Ways To Get A 6 Pack?

A: The quickest way to reveal your six-pack would be to drop your body-fat percentage to a level where your six pack muscles (abdominals) are visible which is around 12% for guys. For women, this is slightly harder, but abs can be visible between 22-25%. We all have six packs somewhere but through an effective training and dieting strategy, this is how you get to show them off!

Q: How Can I Gain Muscle Fast?

A: The trick to gaining muscle fast is to train hard and recover hard too. 

  • Perform compound exercises along with isolation exercises for 8-12 reps.

  • Do this using a challenging load.

  • Repeat 4-5 times a week to ensure your muscles are provided with enough stimulus.

  • To recover, sleep 7-9 hours a night.

  • Rest 48-hours before training a muscle again.

  • Ensure you are eating enough food (including around 2g protein per kilo of bodyweight) to ensure your muscles recover and grow. 

  • You may also wish to consider supplements such as creatine.

Q: How Can I Get Rid Of Belly Fat?

A: Reducing your overall levels of body-fat and performing abdominal exercises will help to ensure that this area feels a little firmer and looks more toned. Unfortunately there is no magic pill when it comes to removing belly fat, you can't spot reduce - you are at the will of your genetics but reducing your overall body weight will help to tone this area too,
