How To Maintain Your Summer Gains In The Gym All Year Long

You busted your ass to get ready for the summer. This was finally going to be the year that would the one you spoke about a decade from now. Shredded on the beach and at the gym, pussy galore…you know the deal, bro. But something happened along the way that pushed you back a bit. All of that having fun enjoying your great physique made you slip up and some of those gains have gone away, or you have kind of hit a wall and shown no signs of improvement since Memorial Day.

There’s plenty of time for you to get your shit together but you have to plan it out correctly. You will probably have to live with whatever size you currently have and conditioning at this point in the summer should be your focus. And that is a good thing, actually, as what you are doing is more attainable.

Your goal should be to shape your body and have it give off the perception of being bigger. Certainly not impossible if you work on the right areas. Your waist got a little wider? Then hit your lats and outer thighs (the teardrop) harder to give you that X-frame everyone seeks.
