How to get single digit body fat figures?


The secret to getting single digit body fat figures, super lean and ripped is all about mastering the art of "peaking". The intelligent approach to nutrition and training which is used by almost all bodybuilders and fitness/ figure competitors is to train and diet in a seasonal or cyclical fashion and build up to a peak then ease off to a maintenance or growth phase. Most people do not know how to reach the type of low body fat levels that reveal ripped six-pack abs, muscle striations, vascular and extreme muscular definition and so they go about it in the completely wrong way. The practice of peaking is not just restricted to bodybuilders. Athletes in all sports use peaking to build themselves up to their best shape for competition.

Avoid chronic dieting:

To maintain a "ripped to shreds" physique all year round you have to be calorie restricted all the time. The reason why 95% of people can't lose weight and keep it off is that they haven't mastered the art of training and dieting in seasons or cycles. They are chronic dieters or always on some type of diet. Staying on restricted low calories indefinitely slows down your metabolism and your system. But if you diet for fat loss for three months, then ease off for a while and eat a little more healthy food so that your metabolic rate doesn't slow down. In a few weeks, you can return to another fat loss phase and reach an even lower body fat level, until you finally reach the point that's your happy maintenance level for life - a healthy, realistic and visually appealing level.

Take control of your body composition:

Bodybuilders have discovered an effective method for losing fat that puts them in complete control of their body composition. They have the tools and knowledge to hold a low body fat all year round and to reach a temporary "peak" of extremely low body fat for the purpose of competition. They also have the power and control to slowly ease back from peak shape into maintenance instead of ballooning up like conventional dieters! The secret to get a single digit body fat figure is by manipulating diets in a cyclical fashion between pre-contest "cutting" programs and off season "maintenance" or "muscle growth" programs.
