Summer is almost here. Do you want to look great with your shirt off at the beach or the pool?
Most of us do want to look great, but we don't want to do what it takes to get ripped.
Thankfully getting ripped is not that hard….if you have a plan. And thankfully we DO have a plan.
If you want to get LEAN for summer, follow this plan. If you do, you'll be way ahead of the game.
Do you want to look great with your shirt off at the beach? This is how you do it…
Follow these 8 summer beach body tips to get RIPPED for summer.
#1) Eat At A Calorie Deficit
It should be no secret to you now if you have read my other diet articles that energy intake and expenditure is the main determining factor in your body composition.
If you are trying to get lean for summer and to show off your physique at the beach, the first thing you will want to do is ensure you are eating at a calorie deficit.
If you aren’t eating fewer calories each day than you are expending, you WILL NOT lose fat, and that will prevent you from getting leaner.
Start counting your macros and calories, set a calorie goal for each day that is in a deficit that will allow you to lose weight and make sure you don’t exceed that in any circumstance.
#2) Do Cardio Regularly
Cardio is another extremely helpful tool that will help you further cut into a calorie deficit, as it will expend more calories.
By expending more calories, you will further increase the disparity between your calorie intake and your total daily energy expenditure, thus helping you get leaner faster.
#3) Get A Tan (Fake or Real)
Having a healthy bronze glow will help prevent you from getting that washed out look in the sunlight outdoors.
Having a tan will show definition and muscular separation that would otherwise go unseen if you show up to the beach looking like a ghost.
Trust me, I know the difference.
#4) Do A Water Load/Deplete To Peak Your Physique For The Beach
For competitions it is extremely common for bodybuilders to do a “peak week” in their last week leading up to the competition in order to drop all subcutaneous water retention that could be blurring their definition, striations and muscular separation.
If you want to peak your current physique for the beach later in the week, you can do the same thing by manipulating your water intake.
To do this, all you need to do for the days prior to the beach is drink a lot more water.
When you do this, your body naturally reacts by urinating more and expelling all the water retention it is holding, as it realizes you are feeding it so much H20 that it no longer has to hold onto water retention to sustain its hydration.
#5) Deplete Carbs For At Least A Few Days At Least Before The Beach
This is another method that is great for temporarily appearing leaner.
When you follow a low or no carb diet, there are no carbs in your body to soak up the water you are taking in.
Carbs act like a sponge and suck in the water you take in, that is why it is common for bodybuilders to gain 20+ pounds back in less than a 24-hour period after their competition.
By depleting your body of carbs your body will naturally get rid of excess water retention and give you a leaner tighter look with more muscular definition showing.
This is why it is common to lose up to 5 pounds in just your first week upon starting a ketosis diet. Almost all this weight is purely water that you expel.
#6) Use Natural Diuretics for a TEMPORARY Look
Having a good natural diuretic will allow you to TEMPORARILY achieve an even leaner physique than would normally be possible via fat loss by itself.
Diuretics are designed to help the body eliminate excess water retention from beneath the skin, and when you take this one as per the bottle recommendations you can expect a significant change in your physique.
This maximum strength botanical formula also supplies the proper balance of vital electrolytes that helps maintain muscle performance and muscle fullness and prevent cramping that you might get from other diuretic supplements.
Natural diuretics include:
- Green and Black Tea
#7) Get Rid Of Body Hair
This last tip is actually very crucial if you are a hairy person.
A lot of guys have never done any body hair removal (except down there) in their life, and they would be shocked to see how much leaner they can look without a layer of hair covering up their abs, legs, chest, back, etc.
I used to shave but it is very hard to avoid nasty razor bumps when you are covering a huge surface area of skin (like your entire torso and legs).
I have been using Nair hair removal cream now for years.
It is very strong so don’t let it sit on your skin past the recommended time on the bottle. It works extremely well, all you need to do is apply it all over your body wherever you want hair removal, let it sit for the recommended time, then use a wet cloth and wipe it off.
Just like that, all the hair will come off. I use this stuff religiously once a week to maintain a hairless physique to maximize my visible muscular definition.
You will be surprised how much of a difference it actually makes, and I highly recommend you try it out.
We consider Red Burner to be the best natural fat burner on the market today.
The ingredients in Red-Burner have been specifically chosen as they greatly enhance fat oxidation during exercise. What does that mean? It means Red Burner helps you burn more fat.
The caffeine in Red-Burner specifically stimulates the nervous system and increases epinephrine levels in the body which signals the body to break down fat.

Coupled with the other potent ingredients in Red-Burner, as well as proper nutrition and a well-rounded fitness program, you can easily shed a huge amount of unwanted fat and greatly improve your body composition.
Red-Burner’s ingredients work synergistically to maximize your fat loss. They do this by improving your body’s nutrient partitioning abilities, oxidizing a greater amount of fat, increasing how many calories your body burns, and greatly enhancing your energy levels – which will equate to stronger exercise sessions.
