Beach Ready Workout – Quick Fix!

Need to shape-up for the beach, fast? Follow this 4 week quick fix for metabolic turnaround. This beach ready workout regime is not going to be easy but it will get results: the super fix diet and exercise combo. I’m not going to waste your time, we’re in a hurry! Here’s the outline and you can connect the dots:

Diet: essentials


  • Alcohol, sugary drinks, fruit juice
  • Sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, sugar, cream and full fat products
  • White/refined: bread, pasta and rice

Keep in:

  • Carbs: brown/unrefined: bread, pasta, oats, rice, rice and oat cakes
  • 2/3 portions of fruit per day
  • Copious amounts of vegetables and salad
  • Protein: chicken, turkey, tuna, white fish, eggs and tofu
  • Quinoa, lentils, small amounts of nuts and dried fruit
  • Water, lots of water, up to 3 ltrs a day and good quality coffee and tea if you must


  • Split the ‘keep in’ section into 4/5 small meals per day. Carbs + protein at each meal except dinner where we omit carbs. Breakfast like a Prince, dine like a pauper!
  • Reduce carbs after 2pm and omit them for dinner (I didn’t say no carbs)
  • Exercise on an empty stomach – just water at least 2hrs before working out

Exercise – super circuit


C.V:  Walk, swim, cycle, step climb for 15 to 30min between circuit days.

Complete the circuit twice each session and increase to 3, 4, and 5 circuits over 4 weeks. Increase reps of each exercise by 5 reps/week. NO rest between reps or exercises, just 60sec rest between circuits.
