Getting ‘SUPER Shredded’ on A Lean Budget £££…
Eating to Get Super Shredded can be expensive right?
It’s possible to get very lean on a lower budget!
I have written Get Super Shredded on less than £7 pounds per day to help those wanting to save money and sculpt a shredded 6 pack.
I know how to get lean on a budget because 2 years ago, when I was a student at Sheffield Hallam University, I lived off just £4 pounds of food per day!
I want to help you, so I I have designed 2 meal plans (1 training day and 1 non training day) which you can use to get some awesome results.
You can also use the Get Super Shredded on less than £7 pounds per day plan as a framework, so you can gain some ideas and develop your own budget plan that works for you.

Depending on your starting level of leanness, BF% and consistency following the plan will depend on how quickly you see results. Like anything in life, if you do something by half measure do not expect to see amazing results.
A good starting point would be to set yourself a goal of 4 weeks, where you commit 100% to getting Super Shredded. You can then modify the plan depending on your progress. Please contact me if you have any questions I would love to help you.
In terms of training, this is easy to do and much cheaper than the food side (which Is why i’ve talked more about food in this article) – the food aspect is crucial to getting lean.
In terms of the training?
Well, if you’re a student or living on a small budget, my advice would be to join a low cost gym such as:
- Pure Gym
- The Gym Group
- University Gym
- Council Run Gym
The above gyms are typically less than £15 per month for a membership, or put another way…50p per day!
I would recommend joining a gym that’s affordable and close-by to where you live.
With regards to getting lean in the gym, the best training program is the one that you can stick too and that fits in with your lifestyle…
What I’m about to share is my advice, but you may need to hire a fitness trainer to help you tailor a program that suits your current level of fitness, meets your goals and fits in with your lifestyle.
My advice would be to workout with weights 4x per week, doing two upper body workouts and two lower body workouts, for example:
- Monday – Upper Body 1
- Tuesday – Lower Body 2
- Wednesday – rest or cardio
- Thursday – Upper Body 2
- Friday – Lower Body 2
- Saturday – rest or cardio
- Sunday – rest or cardio
In terms of how each session could look…
Upper Body 1:
- Bent over BB row x 8-12 reps x 2 sets
- Flat DB press x 8-12 reps x 2 sets

- Push ups x AMRAP (as many reps as possible) x 2 sets
Lower Body 1:
- Leg extensions x 20 reps x 2 sets
- Back squats x 8-12 reps x 2 sets

- Leg press calf raises x 20-25 reps x 2 sets
Upper Body 2:
- Chin up x 6-10 reps x 2 sets
- Incline DB press x 8-12 reps x 2 sets
- Incline DB row x 8-12 reps x 2 sets
