MIKE O’HEARN: Why Nutrition Is The Key To Getting Ripped — With Clark Bartram
Start Losing Belly Fat At Age 40:
Hey Guys, Clark here today with Abs After 40. I asked you guys if you had the opportunity to speak to one of the strongest guys in the world, what would you ask? I got with my good friend and 4x Mr. Universe Mike “Titan” O’Hearn to go over 3 pro tips for making sure you lose weight and building muscle.
First thing’s first is nutrition fellas. Mike said it best: “I can always change a person with nutrition alone; without weightlifting…Where I CANNOT change somebody if it’s just weightlifting alone without the nutrition.”
When it comes to the foods you eat, your body has already become used to what it has been taking in. Therefore, as a way to be consistent and make steady progress when trying to make changes, start adjusting your calorie intake in increments. Mike recommends going at a rate of about 250 calories at a time. As the age-old story of the tortoise and the hare goes to show – slow and steady does win the race, especially when it comes to your fitness and health.
Now many guys want to approach going to the gym and training like were animals and get in this barbaric style of smashing weights…That’s not training SMARTER, that’s just training harder. Mike’s second pro tip is to make sure you are doing the least amount of work possible, however still making changes and still getting better: maximize your training time. It’s all about optimizing the time you have scheduled to train, getting in and doing the work efficiently and effectively, then getting out. You don’t have to spend hours training to lose the belly fat – just doing the right workouts in the proper routine for 35-45 minutes regularly.
The third tip Mike doesn’t want you to forget is to make sure to not overcomplicate your training: the basics work. Mike in his home gym has 3 basic forms of equipment to do the squat, deadlift and bench press. Now…Mike has been training for over 35 years and has hit a prime spot of being in a “maintenance mode.” If you’re really looking to burn off stubborn belly fat, there are some different but still simple steps to getting started as well.
It goes to show you out there that it isn’t necessary to make things complicated when it comes to making changes for your body, whether that’s burning fat or building muscle. Make sure your implementing the proper nutrition, training efficiently and most importantly just taking your time to go through the process
