Get Smooth Muscles
If you want to get smooth muscles, you have to burn the fat that is hiding them. The problem with body fat is that it can hide the effort one puts into their workouts and even if the muscles are completely ripped beneath the fat layer, it’s difficult to see. Burn off the fat by increasing cardiovascular workouts while continuing the weight training workouts to keep the muscles strong and progressing. The fat will burn off from the cardiovascular workouts and the smooth muscles will reveal themselves.
You will need:
- Workout Routine
- Food and Exercise Journal
- Create a workout schedule to organize weight training workouts, for building muscle, and cardio workouts, for burning fat. Weight training workouts should have a full 24 to 48 hours of rest in between, but that does not mean cardio workouts cannot occur during the rest from the weight training. Balance the workout schedule to allow three weight training workouts a week (such as Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) then add three to four cardio workouts a week (such as Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday or Sunday). Cardio workouts should be a minimum of 30 minutes but ideally 60 minutes, and interval workouts tend to burn the most fat. If confused as to what type of cardio workouts to do, consider a structured program.
- Review and assess your eating habits to get smooth muscles. While the workouts and scheduling will help, it is only part of the puzzle. To get smooth muscles and optimize fat burning, you need to give your diet an overhaul. Reduce carbohydrate consumption to 100 grams or less per day, and keep the carbohydrates from grains limited to whole grains. Avoid white carbs such as white pastas, rice, flour and baked goods, and white sugar. Replace as much sugar as possible with Stevia, a no-calorie sweetener that does not affect blood sugar.
- Eat the bulk of your carbs during the day and try to limit carbs consumed after 6:00p.m. in order to burn the most fat to reveal smooth muscles. While this may seem confusing, the best way to burn off fat from the body is to force your body to use it up. Reducing complex carbohydrates consumed at night will keep your body from storing them and make your body more likely to access stored body fat for fuel during your morning workouts.
- Increase water consumption to over 64 ounces per day to reduce puffiness in stored body fat. Body fat loves to fluff up when you consume too little water. If working out hard, be sure to consume water during and immediately after your workouts. Aim for over 64 ounces per day to ensure the body is not tempted to store water. If you tend to consume a lot of salt daily, reduce this as well or consume a lot more water to counter the salt’s effects in the body.
- Don’t forget to stretch before and after workouts to get smooth muscles. Stretching is a vital aspect of muscle potential. If you take the time to properly warm-up and stretch before a workout, then stretch and cool down after a workout, you will see greater muscle growth. As muscles grow, they increase your metabolism which burns more fat. Over time, your body becomes an optimal fat burning machine and your cardio workouts and eating habits will help reduce all excess body fat revealing smooth muscles.
