Dad’s best body workout to shape your tummy – eat this, not this

Many of my clients are dads who want to work with me to get rid of the dad’s body they fear. I fully understand this – it’s easy to get your daily routine first and your healthy habits to be a thing of the past. But rest assured, I feel like it with Dad’s ultimate training to get your tummy back in shape.

Dad bod is a term for a guy who has a beer hanging over his belly. He’s not slim, but he’s not necessarily overweight either, they say Men’s health. Before working with me, these clients usually carried too much belly fat and were not as fit as they had before the parent came.

The best way to get rid of dad’s body is to improve your diet and prioritize strength training in your fitness routine. This is important because resistance training builds and maintains lean muscle mass and burns more calories than other forms of exercise such as cardio. I recommend that most dads start with full body training because they focus on more muscle groups. Additionally, it’s easier to make progress when you stimulate your body more. So let’s get started!

With every move you make, focus mainly on compound moves as they are the most profitable bang for your buck. If you have a daddy daddy and are ready to get your tummy shape, here’s the perfect daddy workout for you. Aim for 3 to 4 sets of the following items.

To do a barbell squat, position yourself under the barbell so that it is placed directly on your front arms. Place your fingers on the bar to the outside of your arms and bend your elbows forward, pointing in front of you. Remove the barbell from the rack, take a step back, and sit back on your heels, squatting so your thighs are parallel to the floor. Pull up through your heels and hips, tightening your quadriceps and glutes to complete. Do 3-4 sets of 6 to 8 repetitions.

Begin your dumbbell bench press on an inclined bench, lying on an inclined bench with dumbbells in each hand. Hold them straight above you with your arms fully extended. Pull your shoulder blades back and down to the bench, lowering the weights towards your chest. Stretch your lower chest tightly, then press the weights back to the starting position, squeezing the triceps and upper chest at the top. Do 3 to 4 sets of 8 to 10 repetitions.

Do 3 to 4 sets of 10 to 12 repetitions.

Time for the last exercise in this dad’s workout. Begin your Step-Ups with dumbbells by grabbing a set of dumbbells and placing your foot on a bench or stable surface. Make sure your chest stays tall and your core taut as you lean against the heel of your front leg and push it back to get up. Flex your quadriceps and glute muscles at the top of the movement, then lower yourself under control before doing the next rep. Do 3-4 sets of 10 repetitions for each leg.
