How to Build a Fight Club Body Like Brad Pitt
In the movie Fight Club, Brad Pitt had an average build in terms of muscle size, but his muscle tone was outstanding! In fact, if he’s been lifting weights for a period of time, he probably has more muscle size than Brad Pitt did in Fight Club. Women seem to prefer this body type to an overly muscular body almost 100% of the time. If you want to impress the guys in the gym, then by all means gain a ton of muscle mass. If you want to impress women, then go for that lean Fight Club look.
Don’t be fooled… It’s harder to lose weight than to gain weight!
The guys in the gym never cease to amaze me. They are very impressed by those bulky bodybuilding guys who lift heavy weights but have very little tone. I hear it all the time… “that guy can bench 6 reps of 405″… “that guy has 20 inch arms”… etc. Most of these big guys never get body fat percentages low enough to see great muscle tone. I keep my body fat levels at 6% year-round and I don’t get much respect from the guys at the gym, but the girls pay a lot of attention to me. Honestly, getting big requires very little self-discipline. If you lift progressively heavier weights in the 6-12 rep range and eat like a pig, you will get big!
Going too big will give you a cutesy look!
I hate to tear up bodybuilders so much, but can we take back the Everlast clown pants? Seriously, you have to know what I’m talking about. What about those guys who wear those spandex pants or tank tops that they cut to make them smaller? Is there a group worse for style than bodybuilders? Style is very important for women. If you grow too tall, then you can’t even wear regular jeans. Big guys look stupid too when they try to dress up. You can never rock GQ or hip if you’re too big. Don’t be mad at me if you’re big, I’m just here to help you.
A simple plan to get a lean “fight club body”.
I hope I have persuaded some people to lose their clown pants and return to a reality where women will talk to you again. It’s simple, but not easy, to get a Fight Club body. I would recommend workouts with just 20 minutes of lifting followed by 40-60 minutes of cardio. Make sure to start your cardio session with high-intensity interval training. If you don’t know how to do cardio that way, just Google that term. Low-intensity cardio only works to get you to 10-12% body fat. If you want to really tone up, you’ll need to do hard cardio. When it comes to food, don’t get obsessed with protein. You don’t need a ton of protein to maintain a lean body. The main thing is to keep the total calories consumed below what you burn. I weigh about 185 pounds and eat about 1500-1800 calories per day spread over 3 meals. Every time I do the 6-meal approach, I can’t keep the calories low enough to lose body fat. If you can eat 6 smaller meals and keep calories down, then you can use that approach.
This is to achieve a Fight Club Corps!
