First, what is a gym bunny?
A gym bunny is a gay male who spends most of his life in the gym. If you find yourself trying to find ways to spend more time in the gym instead of doing things like hanging out with friends, going out on dates, or staying home to watch TV, you might be a gym bunny.
Part 1: Straight forward simple advice on how to get a gym bunny body.
You need to clean up your diet if you want to get results.
If you want to build muscle, you should increase your carb intake by about 500 calories a day. However, all your carbs need to be clean carbs. Cereal you get off the shelf is probably processed wheat product that is of little nutritional value. Look for Ezekiel cereal. It’s a sprouted grain and a very clean carb. You should integrate brown rice and sweet potatoes as a primary source of carbs through out the day. Be sure to eat lots of greens, even though they don’t provide much in terms of calories.
Be sure you’re eating enough meat based protein. It’s been proven that you’ll make better gains eating meat rather than from whey protein. There is a new brand of protein shake out there called Carnivore that’s actually made from meat. I’d make sure that protein comprises 40% of your diet.
Eat lots of good fats. Flax seeds, coconut oil (MCT) are good sources of good fat. Also check out Smart Balance butter. It’s a special butter spread that’s made from good fats.
Make sure your diet is comprised of 50% carbs 40% protein 10% fats.
If you want definition you need to keep up the cardio. However, you should switch to really low intensity long duration cardio. Get on an elliptical machine and turn on your favorite show for an hour. Use minimal effort. Don’t get your heart rate up to cardiovascular levels. Keep it in the fat burning zone. Most machines have sensors that measure that. Be sure to do your cardio AFTER your weight training. That way you’ll burn fat instead of glycogen.
As for weight training the lower body, be sure you’re doing dead lifts. That is the best thing you can do to give your butt and hamstrings definition. Personally, I do dead lifts everyday. It’s a personal preference, but nothing shapes the butt like it. It’s also part of the core, because you use the muscles you’d naturally use lifting heavy things. So in my opinion if you had a physical job you’d essentially be doing the same thing.
