Peak Your Physique: The Ultimate 4 Week Protocol


You guys, spring break has come and gone, and summer is fast approaching!

You know what THAT means! Barbeques, family get-togethers, pool parties, hanging out at the beach (if you’re lucky enough to live close to one!), vacations, and just spending some fun time out in the sun.

Building lean muscle, shedding fat, and toning up takes some time. It’s nothing that happens overnight, no matter how much we may wish that it did!

But for those of you who have been training, making healthy eating choices, and putting in the work, and are wanting to get in tip-top shape for an event, there are some things you can do to peak your physique!

That’s right. If you have a vacation, wedding, or some big event coming up, here is some GREAT news:

There are some techniques you can implement to lose that last bit of water weight, shed some fat, and kick your leanness up a notch.

Keep in mind, though, that these techniques aren’t meant to be used long-term, and they definitely aren’t sustainable as a permanent lifestyle.

They are meant to fine-tune your physique for a very short period of time.

Let’s chat about the variables that can be manipulated to give your appearance a nice, eye-catching, short-term boost!



Carbs are definitely a hot topic in fitness circles these days. Some people love them, some people hate them, and some people just don’t know what to think!

So are they good or bad? Well, it’s a little more complicated than that.

But the simple answer is that it’s all about moderation, and it depends on your goals.

Carbs definitely provide a readily available source of fuel your body can use as energy for everything it does! Good carbs also aid in digestion and promote healthy cholesterol levels.

The reason they sometimes get a bad rap though is that they’re easily stored as fat when you consume more of them than your body can burn.

They can also get in the way of your body tapping into its fat stores for energy, which can be a roadblock when you’re trying to cut.

That’s why it’s super important to monitor your carb intake when trying to achieve your peak physique in a short amount of time!


Sodium is salt, and you’ve probably heard about a million times to watch your sodium intake. That’s because many people eat processed, packaged, and canned foods, many of which are packed with sodium.

Too much sodium can cause fluid retention which leads to problems like high blood pressure and can cause water retention, making you look puffy and less toned.

But the fact is sodium is a super important nutrient and an electrolyte that your body needs, in the right amount of course.

If you’re deficient you could fall victim to cramps, fatigue, and nausea, among other things.

It’s all about balance though, as too much can mess with both your health and your physique.

When you’re eating clean, you might not be getting much sodium from your food. So during times like this, you’ll want to put your salt shaker to use.

You’ll still be keeping track of sodium intake though, because it’s one thing that can help or hurt you in your quest to reach your goals, and it needs to be monitored and altered at just the right time.


Okay, so it’s no big secret that cardio is super good for you, and can be a major fat burning tool.

Love it or hate it, cardio has a ton of benefits. It’s good for your heart, improves your cardiovascular health, makes you feel good, and it burns a lot of calories!

When you’re trying to get as lean as possible, your cardio needs to be on point. But it’s just a little more complicated than you might think.

For instance, many people think that the harder you workout the better results you’ll see.

But in reality, intense workouts at certain stages can actually cause water retention, which is definitely not what you want.

How long you do cardio, when you do it, and for how long you do it are all major factors that can influence your results.

A little careful planning can have you getting the most out of cardio on your way to hitting your peak physique.


Water is important for your health. Understatement of the year, right? You already know that adequate water intake is a must for basically everything your body does!

Water helps to regulate body temperature, aids in digestion, helps to move waste out of your body, as well as a ton of other stuff!

Drinking water is also a good way to get your body to shed the water weight that it’s holding onto!

Wait-drink more water to lose water weight? That’s right! When your water consumption isn’t sufficient, your body tends to hold on to water weight.

Increase the amount of H2O you drink, and you’ll shed that extra water you’ve been clinging to.

When you’re trying to peak your physique, your daily water intake should be strategically monitored in order to in order to drop water weight and bring out that lean, toned muscle hiding underneath!
