How to Get THIS Shredded (JUST DO THIS!)

If you want to know how to get shredded and ripped muscle, then you won’t want to miss this video. I’m going to tell you exactly what it takes to be lean and muscular year round no matter what level of body fat you have right now. By the end, you’ll know what the three most important things you must do if you are looking to lose fat and get ripped.

The discussion was sparked by a viewer question for our AX Jeff series. The question reads:

“Hey Jeff, how do I get absolutely shredded like this guy? I mean, I know you know a thing or two about being crazy lean and hell, I’d even settle to be your level lean if I could. Any guidance would be appreciated!”

It’s not often that I get used as the fallback example for being lean, but when standing next to the world’s most shredded man Helmut Strebl, it’s the only logical place to be. We all know that in order to lose weight and get low body fat you have to establish an eating style that creates a hypocaloric state. This means, that you are taking in fewer calories than you are burning off in order to drop body fat.

That said, there are many different ways to do this. You can follow one of many different diet plans like Keto, Carnivore, or Atkins or even adopt a different eating style that manipulates the hours within with you eat your foods like Intermittent Fasting in order to get this to happen. Regardless of which you do however, realize that there are variables from person to person that ultimately dictate the effectiveness of the plan for getting you to your goals.

I like to use the analogy of creating a hole in the ground. There are many different ways to do this as well. You could use a shovel to dig one of course, but as Jesse suggests there are meteors that can blast giant holes in the ground, your dog could dig one and the Earth itself could spontaneously drop into a sink hole.

The fact is, if you chose to dig with a shovel, the variety of shovel blade and grip would represent the differences between people and the rate at which they see results (and the ultimate level of fat loss) when they follow these diet plans.

Once you put your shovel in the ground however you are digging. And digging the hole is the process of losing fat. The deeper the hole you dig the lower your body fat level will be. If you think of it this way you can quickly see how things like the ability to focus on the task at hand, remain consistent with the digging and not getting distracted by social pulls would enable you to dig a hole deeper and deeper even if it proceeded perhaps at a slower rate than someone else you know using the same method.

There is a genetic component to discuss as well. Someone like Helmut who has superior muscle building genetics is always going to find it easier to achieve insane levels of low body fat than someone else who struggles with foods and eating or doesn’t have the muscularity that looks like his even at low levels of body fat. Maybe genetically you’re digging with a spoon and he is digging with a backhoe. It doesn’t matter, if he stepped away from the machine and you kept digging you would ultimately have a deeper hole.

And that is the point, consistency of effort is ultimately the thing that determines how low you can go.

You must decide as well what you will do when you encounter your first obstacle. All of us at some point in a weight loss and fat loss journey will plateau. Here you must either change the tool you are using or at least be willing to do an honest assessment of what your meal plan looks like right now to find the areas you can make improvements.

Sometimes, these sacrifices are too much for some to handle and while losing their body fat they also lose their minds. This makes it unsustainable for them and not something they can do long term to get ripped and stay shredded. If this is you, I would implore you to take a step back and instead find the level of body fat that you can maintain that keeps you happy and healthy.

    Jessie looks like he’s freezing but Jeff is still in his fitted t cuz his biceps generate heat to warm up that entire gym

    AX Jeff question: This channel is over 10 years old now. Is there a piece of advice, philosophy, technique etc. that you had 10 years ago that maybe has changed now given new research or experience?

      When things were at their very worst:
      2 Suns, Cross in the sky, 2 comets will collide = don`t be afraid – repent, accept Lord`s Hand of Mercy.
      The first sign – the Earth will spin faster.
      The second sign concerns the sun, which will loom larger, brighter and begin to spin.
      Scientists will say it was a global illusion.
      Beaware – Jesus will never walk in flesh again.
      After WW3 – rise of the “ man of peace“ from the East = Antichrist – the most powerful, popular, charismatic and influential leader of all time. Many miracles will be attributed to him. He will imitate Jesus in every conceivable way.
      Don`t trust „pope“ Francis = the False Prophet
      – will seem to rise from the dead
      – will unite all Christian Churches and all Religions as one.
      One World Religion = the seat of the Antichrist.
      Benedict XVI is the last true pope – will be accused of a crime of which he is totally innocent.

      – banking collapse was deliberately masterminded by the Antichrist

      – Antichrist will step in and create a false peace in the state of Israel by joining them with palestine in an unlikely alliance.

      – „He will recite extracts from My Teachings, which he will passionately proclaim from every secular stage in the world, until people sit up and take notice of him.“

    Question: Many youngsters would really love to know about career in sports science and related stuff. Where to begin and what to expect.

    Every single Hollywood actor: “Chicken, rice, and broccoli. 2 hour workout, twice a day, 7 days a week”

    • anonymous bosch says:

      @Kevin Alter Whether or not they use drugs is kinda beside the point – going to those extremes is unhealthy regardless of the method used.
      The sacrifices actors make to look the part often includes their own health, as do we if we copy them. Same for elite athletes tho obviously they don’t train primarily just to look good.

    • Kevin Alter says:

      @anonymous bosch what’s also dangerous to me is these actors lying and giving people false hope. Imagine a guy actually believing you should workout 6 hours a day, rest once a month, and eat a micronutrient-deficient diet. It’s insane, I’d rather them just being honest about it

  6. Kiran Prasad says:

    This was one of the most honest videos. It’s all about the sacrifices you’re willing to make. And honesty below 13-15 % bf your health doesn’t improve much.

  7. Johnny M. says:

    Jeff: To get that lean, just die.
    Jeff: I’ve got a metaphor. Let’s say you are digging a hole for yourself.

    He’s very consistent.

  8. Lucas Srinivasan says:

    Legend says that when Jeff went into the airport, that was the first time they allowed guns on a plane.

  9. MyYouTubeChannel says:

    The answer should be, “it is possible for someone, not likely for anyone, probably unhealthy for everyone.”
