Keep training and improve your diet!
Many athletes often don't look athletic or toned as their proportion of body fat is too high. That is why your diet plays a major role in achieving your goal. You should aim to reduce carbohydrate consumption and increase protein intake. In order to achieve your fat loss target and at the same time maintain or strengthen muscles, you should consume around 2g of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. Our products are the ideal way of absorbing good proteins without unnecessary carbohydrates.
"For heavyweight athletes, the motto "Lift weights and eat pasta" is okay. Anyone wanting to look athletic and sporty, however, must cut down on the carbs."
Definition starts in the kitchen!
A lower body fat percentage enhances the look of your physique. This is primarily controlled by the right diet. Simply eating less is not the solution, however, as the body loses muscle if there is a lack of nutrients. Your objective is therefore to burn as much fat as possible while also ensuring a good supply of protein to the muscles.
Protein is the basic structural component of all muscle cells. It increases the metabolism and ensures increased calorie consumption. Eggs, meat, fish, pulses and dairy products are high-quality sources of protein. Protein supplements are also very important as they are very low in calories and fat. High-quality protein supplements include products that contain milk protein, whey, casein and egg as their main ingredient such as Multipower FORMULA 80 EVOLUTION. Numerous studies show that an increased protein intake and lower consumption of carbohydrates help with fat loss.
Carbohydrates can hinder the release of fat from fatty tissue and thus prevent its breakdown. Cut down on mono-carbohydrates in the form of cakes and biscuits in your diet, as well as any side dishes that are rich in carbs such as rice, potatoes and pasta.
Of course it won't help to remove a specific group of nutrients entirely, especially as requirements that are too rigid won't be adhered to in the long term. You should therefore leave a certain basic amount of high-quality carbs in your diet in the form of fruit, vegetables, dairy products, whole-grain products and nuts. The minerals and vitamins that they contain are also power nutrients for your body.
A clever mix of cardio and strength training
Your workouts should contain a combination of cardio and strength training. With high-intensity training, your heart rate and metabolism increases which allows you to burn more fat. For successful strength training you should also include stability exercises as a strong core is vital.
The important thing to remember here is the way you go about your training rather than the particular type of training you choose. You achieve your goal faster with high-intensity training than with longer, endurance training, as your body has less chance to get used to it and so you burn more calories.
Also high-intensity interval training, alternating with phases of low intensity can reduce your cardio time to around 15 minutes.
Lean muscle tissue increases the body's basal metabolic rate and fat-burning capacity. Strength training is therefore a vital part of your training to achieve your goal of more body definition. As with cardio workouts, intensity is also very important in strength training. Circuit training can help you to train your whole body in every workout. During each workout, try to lift more weight or do one more repetition of each exercise and keep a training log to see how it is progressing.
