Summer is coming and that means that many people are preparing for the beach season. Many people want to look at their best and that can mean that they want to work on their bodies. A frequently heard term when working on the body is 'train dry'. But what exactly is dry training and how can you achieve the best results?

Dry training is the process where you reduce the excess fat on your body while at the same time keeping or building muscle mass. The goal is to make your body look tighter and more muscular.

Below you will find some tips for dry training:

  1. Eat healthy and balanced: it is important to eat enough proteins to maintain and build muscle mass. Choose lean proteins such as chicken, fish, lean meat and eggs. Avoid sugar -rich and processed foods and opt for fiber -rich foods such as vegetables, fruit, whole grains and legumes.

  2. Keep your calorie intake: to lose fat you have to eat fewer calories than you consume. Keep track of your calorie intake and make sure you have a shortage of around 500 calories per day.

  3. Do strength training: strength training is essential for dry training. By training with weights you build muscle mass and you burn fat at the same time. Focus on compound exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses and rows to achieve the most results.

  4. Add cardio to your routine: Cardio is a good way to burn extra calories and lose fat. For example, do a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) or LISS (low-intensity steady state) training a few times a week.

  5. Stay consistent and patient: dry training takes time and effort. It is important to stay consistent and to be patient. It can take a few weeks to months before you see the desired result.

Finally, it is important to remember that dry training is not suitable for everyone. People who have a predisposition to quickly lose muscle mass can be better careful when reducing calories. Consult with a professional in that case.

With these tips you can get started to prepare your body for the summer. Remember that it is important to listen to your body and continue to enjoy the process!
