15 ways to build your best ever body

Follow these tried-and-tested transformation tips from MF editor Joe Warner to burn off your belly and build lean muscle
MF’s Joe Warner at the end of his eight-week New Body Plan Plus programme

Earlier this year was on the cover of the February issue of Men’s Fitness, having completed an eight-week training and nutrition programme that helped me lose fat quickly and add lean muscle across my body. I had transformed not only how I looked, but more importantly how felt.

Since appearing on the cover I’ve had a lot of emails and questions on social media from people who want to make major changes to how they look, feel and perform by doing their own better-body challenge, but are prevented from doing so by one significant obstacle: they don’t know how to start.


If you sounds like you, then you have my sympathy. In many ways the first step on a transformation path is the hardest one to take, especially if you’re not entirely sure about the approach you’re adopting. It’s common to suffer from “paralysis by analysis”, whereby you never start a new training plan because you’re trapped overthinking your strategy, or you keep putting off that first session until you think you’ve found the “perfect plan” for you.

The reality is that there’s no such thing as a perfect plan – but the perfect start does exist. Establishing your starting point, before you even set foot in the gym, enables you to set a realistic goal and to look back at the end of each week to monitor your progress and ensure you’re continually moving ever closer to your body composition goal.
