We've all seen it before: You hit the gym, ready to conquer any and every lift you can imagine. Maybe you do the obligatory treadmill slog for a few minutes, then wait in line at the bench press station before doing a few pullups. Next is some curls, obviously. Round it out with a few sets of crunches, and you're good to go.
There's just one problem with this approach: You can't just thrash around in the gym like every other random dude in there and expect results. If you really want to build muscle, cut fat, and achieve the best physique of your life, you need a plan. You need some tactics that'll get you ripped, whether you're in the gym, in your own kitchen, or anywhere else.
That's why we've created the 2017 Men's Fitness Lifter's Guide. It's got all the sage advice you need from our top trainers and nutritionists, all in one place. So read up, watch Rocky IV again, pour yourself a supercharged pre-workout supplement, and take this plan to the gym with you. Before you know it, you'll be the guy everyone else looks to for advice.
