5 Things EVERY Ripped Guy Does (COPY THESE!)

5 Things EVERY Ripped Guy Does (COPY THESE!)

What’s up, guys? Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.com. Today I’m going to show you how to get ripped
because all you’re going to have to do is copy the five, little things that are on this
list. The good thing is, I’ve already done all
the meticulous research. We put the science in strength here, right? So, we’ve got the research done. You’ve just got to take out a pen and copy
these. Just start doing these five, simple things. Let me start revealing them one by one. Remember, write them down so you get these
right. The first thing is: you’re going to have
to juice fast once every 17 weeks. Don’t question this because this is all
research that’s proven all of these things. Just do what I say. Number two: you’re going to have to do fasted
cardio every other day. Don’t confuse this, guys. We’re not talking about fed cardio. We’re talking about fasting cardio every
other day. Not every day. Next, you’re going to drink one teaspoon
of apple cider vinegar 30 minutes after waking. If you were to do this, let’s say, 40 minutes
or 45 minutes after waking you’ve got big problems. Remember, follow this advice. Guys, I promise you it’s going to work. Next one: never eat after 6pm. That’s obvious. Even your mom told you that. Don’t do that. Lastly, you have to cycle low-dose Tren with
TRT because that’s what everyone says. There’s no way you could be lean without
doing that, but it’s just five things, guys. Enough of this. Wait, hold on. What is this one. Oh, we have one more? What’s that? “You just got ‘Rick Rolled’?” Jesse, what is this? Is that still a thing? Jesse, did you put that in there? JESSE: I’m bringing it back! JEFF: All right. Obviously, guys, I’m half-joking because
you’ve probably heard most of those things on that list. You might have even been more realistic about
it and heard things like “Let’s follow the Jeff approach. You talked about it last week. You don’t drink. You don’t have cheat meals. You have one a year.” Is that necessary though? Is that the formula for being ripped? I’m going to tell you right now: no. Not at all. It works for me, but it’s certainly not
required. I could tell you, there are so many guys out
there that are incredibly lean year-round that are having more than a couple of cheat
meals, and they’re certainly drinking alcohol. That’s not the thing. What I want to do for you today is give you
an extremely helpful video. A real video. A ‘No Bullshit’ video that will tell you
exactly what you need to do because every person that walks around lean year-round will
have the actual five things here, the attributes, and habits that I’m going to share with
you today. If you do anything, try to listen carefully. Even if you’re a little disappointed that
some of those things weren’t the quick answer, I promise this is going to be the more helpful
answer. So, the first thing you want to do is, if
you’re going to be walking around year-round lean, finally getting rid of the bodyfat you’ve
been carrying; you can’t diet. You can’t. You can’t diet. No guy that walks around lean year-round diets. They’ve already gotten rid of that from
their terminology. They’re not eating. They’re fueling their body. It’s nutrition. It’s a lifestyle. I’ve said this so many times on this channel
and I want to say it again because it needs to become part of your mantra. You cannot diet. A diet is based on deprivation. A diet is based on a temporary status. A diet is based not being able to stick to
it for the long term. It’s completely opposite of the thought
of being able to get lean and stay lean year-round, year, after year, after year. Dieting cannot be part of that. Often times, I’ve also said when you get
to a certain level of leanness through dieting it’s that same technique that got you there
that is most likely going to be the one you’re going to have to stick to in order to stay
there. If it was difficult to get there because it
was based on deprivation, you’re not going to be able to stay there. So, no guy that walks around lean year-round
has anything in their vocabulary that even resembles ‘diet’ or a form of ‘diet’. It’s nutrition. The second things is: you’ve got to drink
lots of water. I know it sounds standard and you’ve probably
heard this advice a lot, but there are reasons for this. One of them goes along with the fact that
when you drink water throughout the day you become more aware of the difference between
thirst and hunger. When you need to fuel your body, you do so
with smart choices. As opposed to poor choices. If you stay hydrated throughout the day you
also get the secondary benefits of having more energy. We all know that your energy can sag if you
stay away from water throughout the day as needed. You start to become dehydrated and your performance
decreases. Even if it’s only by percentage points,
it’s going to have a big impact. Especially when you head to the gym and it’s
time to train. Number three, the thing that everyone that’s
ripped will do – and this could be a shocker to some – is that they will prioritize when
they get to the gym. High intensity, high effort weight training
any day over cardio. Again, that’s probably opposite. You probably think “No, I’ve got to get
my cardio in.” That’s the number one thing guys think. “I’ve got to get my cardio in if I’m
losing weight.” No, you don’t. The most important thing you can do is prioritize
your weight training because the more lean muscle you build, the more likely you’re
going to be able to stay lean forever. Not just for a short period of time, because
we know that muscle tissue is more active. We know by doing weight training we have a
much higher likelihood of adding lean muscle to our body, than we do through conditioning
and cardio. We know that our insulin sensitivity is higher,
meaning we have a different response to the food that we put in our body because we’ve
added lean muscle tissue. All of these things will arm us to become
much better equipped to handle the lifelong pursuit of being lean. As opposed to burning a few extra calories
in a conditioning workout or cardio workout that’s very, very temporary and consolidated
to that one effort, or one bout of cardiovascular work. So, the better thing is, if you had to scrap
that part of the workout because you’re short on time, you would strength train. You weight train. You try to add more lean muscle to your body. Everyone that’s lean and ripped will tell
you that’s what they do every, single time. Guys, I would be ashamed to admit the lack
of conditioning that I do in my own workouts. Now, am I conditioned? Can I go out and do a workout that’s conditioning? Of course, I can because I’ve been training
athletically my whole life. But I would say, I don’t do enough conditioning. What I do is prioritize my nutrition, I strength
train, and I weight train. So, you want to make sure you’re doing the
same thing. Next, we talked about, in those weight training
sessions; are you lifting the weight that you should be lifting, or are you lifting
the weight that you can lift? There are a few things here. Guys, when we talk about lifting the weight
that we can lift, we’re talking more about pure strength training. The thing about pursuing pure strength training
is, a lot of times, that little bit of extra weight is something that will work to your
advantage. It could create additional leverage, allow
you to move more pounds. That’s a good thing if that’s what your
pursuit is. However, if your goal is to be as lean and
ripped as possible, I’ve also talked about – even in my most recent video about my
body stats – that being lean is always going to make you look more muscular. It’s always going to make you look better,
no matter what level of muscularity you’re at. The key is, you want to make sure that when
you’re in the gym you’re commanding the weights that you’re lifting. I’m not saying, ‘don’t lift heavy’. You want to lift as heavy as you possibly
can, but not at the pursuit of strength only or not at the expense of bad form. We also know that when we start to go down
that avenue, injuries can happen. If you’re obsessed with only the numbers,
injury will likely occur. When that happens, that’s the fastest way
to find yourself going from in shape to out of shape because one you lose the activity,
once you lose the ability to get to the gym regularly, it’s usually the same time you
start to say “Oh, it’s doesn’t really matter much what I eat today because I didn’t
workout anyway. Who cares?” Then you start to compound that day after
day, week after week and you start falling off the tracks, and you never get back on
them. So, you want to make sure you’re lifting
the weight that you should be lifting, rather than always trying to pursue the weight that
you might be able to lift. Last, but no least, the key to all of this
– and please don’t understate this one. I’m saving the best for last. Consistency. Consistency is always key. Consistency is what is going to be the thing
that unlocks whatever trouble you’re having right now with getting lean. I know what you’re saying. “Jeff, I know. But consistency is the problem.” No, it’s not the problem, guys. The consistency is not the problem. The consistency is trying to be consistent
with things you cannot be consistent with. If you’re dieting, you can’t be consistent
with that. I’m telling you right now, guys. It’s impossible. The two don’t go hand in hand. Diet is short-term based. It’s got a time lapse on it. Something is going to expire. There’s an expiration on that diet. You cannot remain consistent with that. If you’ve learned how to eat well, if you’ve
chosen foods that work for you, if you’ve chosen foods that you like – imagine that
concept. You actually like the foods and you’re eating
them regularly because you like them and enjoy them. Now we’re talking about consistency. If you find a style of training that you enjoy,
if you start to see results from that training; you’re going to stay consistent with it. If you’re not trying to do things in the
gym that you shouldn’t be doing because your body is not capable of doing them yet
– I’m not saying forever, but maybe ‘yet’ – that’s going to set you up for failure
because you could get hurt. Then once again, you’re not going to be
consistent. Find a way to make it consistent. When you do, these five things are going to
set you down a path that you’re going to come back to this video for, and thank me
for many, many times because it’s going to work. I promise you, it’s going to work. It doesn’t revolve around short-term diets,
and fads, and strategies, and apple cider vinegar, and low-dose Tren, and TRT, and any
other things that guys say. Those are the excuses people make when they
can’t get there. Those are the things that people say when
they can’t get there themselves. When they can’t face themselves in the mirror
and say, “I can’t make this work.” Yes, you can. Yes, you can. You just have to do exactly what I’ve shown
you and told you here. If you’re looking for a plan that you can
actually follow, that’s laid out, always based on science, but laid out in a way that’s
doable, and something you can stay consistent with; that’s one of the hallmarks of what
we do at ATHLEANX. We provide you with plans and workouts that
you can do, and stick with for the long-term because it’s never about tomorrow, or the
next week, or even next month. It’s about the lifetime. All of our programs are available over at

  1. Want to win an ATHLEAN-X program for free, no strings attached? Click the link below to find out how!


  2. You are so motivating and so straight to the point. Little about myself I'm 33 years old 5ft 5in. 184lbs 2 months ago I woke up one morning for work. Looked in the mirror horrified. I let myself go to long need to change. Been working out for 60 days little muscle growth have membership at planet fitness…

  3. I was thinking about all the ways I can implement the things from the first list and was taking notes, and here I am getting rick rolled

  4. Definitely don't binge drink. Nothing put me at a caloric surplus faster than alcohol. Plus it gives you a fatty liver which makes your belly protrude even more.

  5. Fasting does work I don't understand why you're making it seem like it's a bunch of bullshit when there's plenty of scientific literature on this topic now.

  6. First time ever I actually follow a tip by Jeff before watching his video.

    Am I ripped now?… am I the chosen one?… am I god?

  7. But isn’t fasted HIIT cardio still better than the non-fasted cardio? Jeff and Mike Matthews are the two coaches I respect and Mike really stands for Fasted Cardio – he even has a supplement Forge which helps burn fat during FASTED cardio

    Here: https://youtu.be/x7vmFrhAG48

  8. First when i saw that rules , i was thinking "maybe this channel isn't that good" :))) What you said is very true , i'm ripped and i really do this things everyday!

  9. If you are burning off the calories through activity you can eat lots of whatever you want every day and get lean and stay lean.. Found that out through doing landscape gardening for a job. I HAD to eat plenty to have the energy TO do the work (lots of lifting and moving around with heavy bags of sand etc) but got a six pack in about a month. It's working hard regularly physically every day, that's what counts, not diet. He's right.

  10. R.I.P to guys who just saw 1.30 moms of this video and took it deposit. Without watching the rest. Hehe. Being regular viewer of this channel I know to watch whole video. Hehe.

  11. I am skinny fat, so I wanna build muscle, but I definitely need to lose body fat, if I can't diet what do I do?

  12. LOVE your videos! Been following workouts and advice, training for 15months and down 78lbs so far. Agree 100% with your 5 steps

  13. Hey guys free tip: Dilute the vinegar in a glass of water. DON'T be stupid like me and drink it pure cause it will burn ur esophagus a bit.

  14. Jeff regularly pisses all over the bullshit printed in Men's Health. I'm nearly 43 and I've trained weights since I was 16, never touched the juice and everything this guy says inspires me more. Just came back off holiday and I can honestly say that shirt off only juice heads where bigger and leaner than me. I'm not massive 5'11" 14st. After yrs of looking for new exercises this guy has introduced me to a whole new set for every body part and better techniques for exercises I was familiar with. Just wish I'd seen these videos twenty odd years ago.

  15. As a nutrition major and hopefully one day an RD, I really appreciated your definition and take on dieting (or the lack there of in people who eat for nutrition/with purpose)!

  16. I got one Jeff’s sentence forever in my mind: “there are other reasons to be happy (he was saying rather than eat wrong and, for me, also smoke I thought). I stopped both. Now I’m so proud about my shape that I can’t stop be happy about it. I would come to the us just for hug Jeff. Messiah of gym!!

  17. 1. No diet
    => pizza for lunch, chicken and fries for diner
    2. Lots of water
    => 2 bottles of coke per day, there is a lot of water in it 😀
    3. Weight training over cardio
    -> I lift…
    4.Lift what you should be lifting
    -> …2lbs dumbbells @ 10 reps per month
    5. Consistency -> I am very consistent with my plan 😀

    What did I do wrong? 🙁

  18. Hi , I got a question . My knees had a surgery and I'm overweight now 200lbs with around 24% body fat ,what's the best way for me to lose weight please ?

  19. I noticed in my classes, that when I do a weight excercise that is hard, I break a huge sweat and my cardio goes up =D.

  20. I think it is important to be aware of the difference between nutrition and dieting. I was unaware of the difference before this video

  21. I was concerned for a second. I knew all these were garbage according to science and I thought he lost it and jumped on the broscience train.

  22. Following these steps when this video was published and workout instructions from Jeff, I’ve gone from 248lbs to 151lbs of lean muscle in 200 days. This guy is the truth

  23. He is trying to say that you can't tackle poverty through some charity campaign structured on a tax write-off. You have to change the entire system and vow to put an end to the need for keeping some people rich and others poor.

  24. #4 never eat after 6pm.
    How does this apply to someone who does not work days?
    For example, I work 130 to midnight so I get up around 1030 am.

  25. I just hate it when someone says he/she is going on a diet. They don't understand that the media is their enemy.

  26. I've been training since middle 1980s. The biggest lesson imaginable is to always look for improvements and never fear being wrong. Everything given has been part of my program. There is so much research in my program that I can only focus on what is next as opposed to the logic of why I am doing it. I love the concept of another gentleman proving my logic. It never gets old.

  27. Ive been training for 2 years under the assumption that I dont need Cardio if I stick to my powerlifting routine and eat clean. I lost weight, gained muscle and plateud. The only thing that broke this plateu was Cardio 3 times a week on the days i wasnt weight lifting. Now im doing 3 times a week full body and 3 times a week cardio and this is a game changer for me since ive never done cardio in my life before lol

  28. "Ah, well, it doesn't matter what I eat today, I didn't train anyway"
    Damn ok dude you can just call me out by name next time

  29. I watched 1 minute of this and was like this is bullshit screw Jeff! But then, because I am a loyal fan I watched another minute because I know Jeff wants me to be balanced and got the payoff!

  30. What about soups and drinking broths in the soup/ramen? How do I make those fit in my diet? I make them home made so not a ton of salt. I'm kind of thinking about ramen, not the packets from the store but actual ramen.

  31. I'd say that there is a place for "the diet" if you want to get there faster, however you indeed need to have a long-term plan to keep the result.

  32. i went from fat to ripped in 4 weeks by only drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes, great meal replacements, never hungry and the caffeine helps me to stay awake all day.

  33. The Tren bit is when I clicked off the video. I don’t appreciate the joke. Was hoping for a serious video no jokes

  34. Most important parameter you forgot : fasting insuline result. You probably will be able to maintain 6% body fat without bigger effort all year long ( even with higher calories when your insuline is 2,1) Not so easy if it will be 6,7 ~you will brake ass with no results still. That's biggest part of this whole picture and mystery

  35. THUMBS UP!!!
    then watch, if applicable.

    i'm not a dude. not applicable. curiosity made me watch because one day…lol…i'll have a man i can share this info with. (but, presently, i temporarily reside in a city where…smh…that's…something i can forget about!!!)

  36. Regular oats (non-organic) have been found to have unsafe levels of glyphosate (roundup). You spoke about cancer in the first portion of this video so I just thought I'd mention this.
