It’s Still Possible to Get Ripped in Time for Summer

Apart from those who may be planning a trip to the far north of the planet for the upcoming vacation, most locals are likely to be enjoying the sun and surf somewhere on South Africa’s 2 500 kilometres of magnificent coastline, or perhaps attempting to get a little closer to nature in one of the nation’s many wildlife resorts. Whatever their destination, these holidaymakers will need to dress accordingly, and for the beach lovers, that is likely to mean revealing rather more of themselves than would be appropriate around the office.

If it’s been a while since you could touch your toes; if you need an extra eyelet hole on your belt or you’ve sprouted some love handles since last year, there may still be enough time to get ripped for summer. Have no illusions – you are not going to be ready to compete in a miss or mister universe contest by Christmas, but with a little discipline, an average individual ought to be able to get rid of a lot of the surplus adipose tissue that has been so successful at hiding the perfectly good muscle tissue beneath it.

Even for the slightly underweight, it may not be too late to build a little more muscle, when following the right sort of fitness regimen. Whether your aim is to tone up or to bulk up, the average family doctor is likely to suggest that you need to start changing what you eat, and recommend that you sign up for a suitable exercise programme at your local gym.

There are some very effective diets and nutritional supplements that together can help you to shed a bit of that surplus fat, but in order to get that ripped look in time for summer, you will need to display some exceptional dedication when it’s time get stuck into your exercises. Typically, this will involve the use of weights and other apparatus designed to provide resistance training. Given that the holidays are not that far off, two to three-hour sessions on three or more days each week could still fail to fully realise the kind of results you had probably been hoping for. Even if your efforts should prove successful, you will need to ensure that when the holiday is over, you don’t undo all your good work, if you are hoping to hang on to your new physique.

Ideally, what is needed is a method that is able to produce the desired results a lot more quickly, and that is able to work for anyone, regardless of their age or how fit they may currently be. A method which, over the course of the remaining 14 weeks, could seriously improve the possibility that you could get ripped in time for this summer.

While it may sound too good to be true, such an option actually does exist. Electro-muscular stimulation or EMS provokes multiple muscular contractions with or without physical resistance, and can produce the desired results in just 20% of the time required by conventional exercise programmes.
