How to Get the Body of a Spartan

How to Get the Body of a Spartan

Has Gerard Butler been haunting your dreams as the sole epitome of a sculpted and chiseled bod ever since you saw the “totally authentic” 300 movie a few years back? Well, he should, because damn did that guy raise the bar for all men in the world and made our lives infinitely more difficult. Especially when it comes to attracting the opposite sex.

You see, it’s not just about being smart, funny, or witty in the 21st century, no, women (and men for that matter) want a sculpted body to go with the package. And so the burden falls upon you to embrace the fitness lifestyle and beef up.

Don’t worry, it’s not that difficult, plus it’s good for you in numerous ways. No matter if you’ve been a gym junkie for some time, or you’re just starting out, here is the foolproof guide on how to get the body of a Spartan!

Develop the mindset

First of all, don’t be a wimp. Did that offend you? Again, don’t be a wimp. The first step towards sculpting a killer physique is optimizing your mindset to match the Spartan mentality (at least when it comes to training) and toughening up.

Yes, the weights are heavy. Yes, you’ll need to tidy up your diet, and yes, you will need to push and challenge yourself on a daily basis. But that’s good, it means you’re on the right track.

For Pete’s sake, those people used to kill their infants if they had a defect of any sort, and they used to kill wolves and fight each other every day until someone got killed or maimed. Fortunately, you live in a civilized society, so you don’t have to do those things.

But just because it’s raining outside doesn’t mean you should skip your training session!

Calories in, calories out

Calories

In order to get that signature Spartan bod, you need to go through what is known as body re-composition. If you are a complete beginner, you will experience great progress in your first year of training, being able to drop body fat fast and gain muscle in the process.

However, no matter if you are a seasoned lifter or a newbie, you need to optimize your nutrition for muscle growth and fat loss. Calculating your daily caloric requirements will allow you to track your progress. You’ll need to calculate your macronutrient requirements as well, in order to keep the fat off and build lean muscle.

Make fitness an everyday habit

The next step is to embrace the fitness lifestyle completely and banish all couch potato-ing from your life. This means that you should be active on your off days as well, so a great idea is to buy some home gym equipment so that you can get a quick cardio session in before work or a quick strength session before heading out on the town. This leads us to the next important tip!

Focus on building strength

Focus on building strength

The key to a strong, sculpted, and massive physique lies in building strength over time, so not only should you focus on nutrition and exercise, but you should emphasize weight and strength training as well. Couple your heavy weight sessions with the proper diet plan for lean mass gain and you will have no problems putting some necessary size on your frame. Now is the time to up your endurance and burn some fat!

Don’t neglect cardio training

Cardio training will be your go-to tool for burning fat and increasing your cardiovascular endurance. But not just any kind of cardio, no, you need to be doing challenging cardio exercises and programs such as HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), GPP (General Physical Preparation), or Kinobody Greek God program in order to maximize fat loss.

Steady-state cardio is a thing of the past, as new, more challenging methods do a far better job at keeping your body healthy and banishing that stubborn belly fat for good.

Building that famous Spartan bod isn’t rocket science, it just requires some dedication and hard work to become a reality. By implementing these crucial tips into your daily routine, you too will sculpt a to-die-for physique in no time!

How to Surprise Your Girlfriend: 5 Date Night Ideas

 5 Date Night Ideas

Surprising people you love has so many benefits, and it feels really good when you know that you’ve made someone happy – at least for one day. No matter if you’re in a long relationship or a novice at dating, planning a perfect date night with your beloved one is an absolute must. However, it can get a bit tricky sometimes, especially if you aren’t really sure what to do. If that’s the case, make sure to stay with us and keep on reading. Here are five amazing date night ideas your girlfriend will love, so check them out!

 

Take her to a sporting event

Yes, you’ve read it well! Some girls are really into sports, and if your girlfriend is one of them – she’s a keeper. Looking for a girl who shares the same passion for sports is often an impossible mission, but trust us – it’s totally worth it once you find her. No matter if she likes football, baseball, hockey, or basketball – just get two tickets for an upcoming sporting event and you’ll see that the smile on her face is priceless!

A romantic dinner is always a good idea

A romantic dinner is always a good idea

Even though it seems a bit predictable, there isn’t a better way to surprise your girlfriend than to prepare a romantic dinner for her. Cooking for your beloved one is always a great idea, and you can be sure that she’ll appreciate the effort and time you invested. Once your meal is all done, make sure to light some candles, too – a romantic candlelit dinner is what every girl in the world loves, no matter what she says!

 

You can’t go wrong with a movie night

If you really want to surprise your girlfriend tonight, but there’s not much time to cook her a dinner, a movie night is probably one of the best possible alternatives. It really doesn’t matter if you’re going to take her to your local theatre, or maybe stay at home watching a movie on Netflix – just make sure that you make a choice according to her wishes. Beauty and the Beast is one of the potential picks, as well as Wonder Woman, so have them in mind until you make a final decision.

A nice massage after a long day at work will do the trick

will do the trick

If you ask us, there’s nothing better than a nice foot massage after a long day. A back massage will also do the trick, so be sure to show your girl how much you love her – run your hands all over her body and show off your amazing skills. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy the benefits of a massage as well, you can always opt for couples massage. You can book an appointment with an experienced practitioner who can come to your home and bring everything they needs – a table, towels and oil. You definitely won’t make a mistake if you go for this.

 

Plan a mysterious getaway

This isn’t exactly a romantic date night, but it can quickly transform from a date night into a fabulous date weekend both of you will enjoy. This is definitely one of the best relationship tips you’ll hear. It doesn’t have to be an exotic destination you’ll spend loads of money on – instead, visit a nearby town and explore what it has to offer. A nice lakeside resort is everything you need for a fantastic weekend, and it really doesn’t have to be particularly luxurious. However, that doesn’t mean that it won’t be exciting!

 

As you can see, there are so many ways to surprise your girlfriend and take her to a romantic date she’ll absolutely adore. Just have in mind her interests and personal preferences, and you probably won’t make a mistake. After all, she’ll surely appreciate your effort, no matter what!
