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.
