Summer is just around the corner, with beach and pool parties galore. Along with summer fun, comes a lot of insecurities for most men, according to Thoroughbred Fitness founder Ted McColl.
“Now is the time to change that and maximize your looks,” says Ted. “Spring is great. It is just starting to get warmer and people are booking summer vacations, especially with the reopening and pent up travel demand after the recent pandemic.”
Here are Ted’s top three tips about how to maximize your fitness, physique, and health goals in time for summer:
Beach Body Tip #1: Low Body Fat
This seems like a no-brainer, but there’s a twist to it. The top areas you want to look as lean as possible are your face and your abs. Your face is number one and your abs are number two. That is the common order of priority for how most men feel about themselves while looking in the mirror. Not surprisingly, these are also the most difficult to achieve. The reason they are difficult is that it is diet focused. You need to have your diet on point to deliver a lean face and lean waist. Thoroughbred Fitness’ Applied Macro Science-based nutrition delivers an anti-fat diet that doesn’t suck to follow. Ted and his team actually encourage people to eat whatever they enjoy, as long as it fits into the caloric and macronutrient framework they establish for them.
Beach Body Tip #2: V Taper
You want to get a nice V Taper going. This will accentuate your form, highlighting the fact that you have lean muscle, and grab everyone’s attention whether they are looking at your body from the front or the back. V Tapers are all about the back, shoulders, and a lean waistline. A good V Taper shows strength and there is something primal about it. That’s how warriors look, and both men and women like and respect it. The best way to start a strong V is pullups. They get everything working for you.
Beach Body Tip #3: Good Posture
Good posture is essential to being confident, portraying confidence, and being more attractive in general. Standing up straight with your shoulders back is a good place to start, but there are tweaks to boost posture and ensure that you can stand that way without it looking unnatural or like you are posing. Back muscles (especially the little ones), core strength, and hamstrings are all very important to maintaining good posture. Thoroughbred incorporates exercises that build these up when getting their clients ready for summer. It makes such a difference and can frequently make someone stand one or even two inches taller. That matters.
