Dads, don’t believe the hype, you don’t want to be rocking that dad bod for the rest of your life! Look we get it, you’ve lived it up, had a blast in college, landed the right job, found the right girl and had some kids. Life is hectic, you’re busy working your 9-5 and the last thing you want to do is hit the job. This isn’t an attack on you, actually the contray, we’re going to celebrate you by getting you back into the shape that made you a dad. Let’s get started.

bad-pizzaFirst things first, lets clean up your diet dad! Look, going to the gym a couple of times a week isn’t going to get you abs. Abs are made in the kitchen! Figure out your daily calorie intake, and cut out the junk food. Remember, pizza doesn’t count as a healthly source of veggies. Start incorporating pizzas, veggies, and drink lots of water. The end goal is that you eat fewer calories while getting a solid amount of proteins and carbs to keep you going. Start taking a waterbottle with you everywhere you go, and make sure you’re getting at 12-15 cups of water.

Right, onto lifting. The best way to tackle the dad bod is to do full body workouts. Full body workouts burn a ton of calories because they hit mutiple muscle groups which makes them effective for building strenght and burning calories. The best part is that you don’t have to spend 6 days a week in the gym so you can keep doing your couple days a week that you’re getting in now.

Sounds pretty easy so far? Well we’re down to the hardest part. The cardio. Yeah the cardio sucks but it works, trust me. You need to start off with some light cardio after each body workout, we’re talking 30 minutes at a time. Don’t want to run? You don’t have to. In fact hitting the bike will probably better because it has higher resistance. After a couple of weeks you’ll need to start incorporating hills and/or sprints into your cardio routine at intervals. This will kick up your metabolism even more.

There you have it dads, now go out there and kick some ass like the true dad you are.
