Writers at Models Direct reviews have put together some simple fitness tips for men…
Women seem to have a constant stream of tips available on how to achieve that perfect summer body, but writers at Models Direct reviews have noticed that men are often not offered the same level of fitness advice.
We thought our male models may appreciate some no-fuss tips on how to tone up and look great on modelling assignments this year. Read on for more…
The easiest way to incorporate a fitness plan into your busy lifestyle may be simply to get out of bed 45 minutes earlier in the morning and spring into action before heading off to work. It’s a great way to start your day and will leave you feeling energised, focused and confident. If you can find a little more time, a gym visit would be even better, enabling the use of free weights, which offer a really effective way to increase muscle tone and lose excess weight. Whichever you are able to commit to, 40 minutes of exercise and a shower is all the time you need daily to start seeing big improvements.
If you can’t manage 40 minutes there is no still excuse – spend 15 minutes cramming in some exercise whenever you can, preferably 3 times per day (a.m, p.m and lunchbreak?). You will find you are able to fit more into this time as your fitness levels improve.
Exercise for results
If you are limited to a workout at home, Models Direct reviews recommends a combination of skipping, push-ups, crunches, lunges and squats in circuits. Increase reps as appropriate, in order to keep working at your maximum. If possible invest in some free weights to bring into your home exercise routine but get some direction on correct usage before you incorporate them into your routine.
If you are able to get to the gym have a fitness plan drawn up that specifies areas you particularly want to work on. A trained gym instructor will be able to help you to get the most from your workout and can show you how to use weights safely and effectively.
Eat for health
Male models who would like to gain mass should increase protein intake – with foods like chicken, turkey, eggs and fish. Stick with baked or steamed options where possible, or invest in a George Foreman style grill. To aid with slimming, try increasing your fibre intake with foods like oatmeal or beans. Always have breakfast. Eat every three to four hours but opt for smaller portions. Snack on low-fat yoghurt, the calcium it contains will help you to process fats. Avoid alcohol and refined carbs (such as white bread).
