Remember the days when you walked around with a six pack? And no, we don't mean bottles of beer. It's never too late to make a comeback. If you've taken some time away from your workouts, don't be discouraged. With a well thought-out approach you can get back into shape. Lucky for you, there's a phenomenon called muscle memory where your muscles ‘remember’ the good old days when you were in better shape. Now that you know you’re ahead of the game, take advantage and win the body you rightly deserve with the following tips and techniques.

Start here...

Choose the Right Exercises

The first thing to focus on is exercise selection, which involves using moves with a high neuromuscular activation. In this phase, it’s critical that you use a variety of movements such as squats, bench presses, military presses, chins, curls and deadlifts.

Moderate Your Cardio

Contrary to popular belief, more is always not better. When it comes to muscle growth, you want to do enough to stay in a fat burning zone (aerobic state) and not the anaerobic state (muscle burning zone). A good gauge would be at 65% of your maximum heart rate. If you go above that, you risk burning muscle instead of fat.

Nail Your Nutrition

Your body has two ways of using and storing energy. One is based on a glucose metabolism, which uses carbohydrates as an energy source. A diet based on that would be low in fat and high in carbs. The second metabolism is a fat metabolism, which uses fats as the main energy source. Try both approaches for 4 weeks a piece to find which one works best for you.
