Great “Mental’ Trick For Six Pack Abs

The single biggest reason why guys fail to get six pack abs is a lack of CONISTENCY.

It doesn’t matter if you’re the world’s most knowledgeable expert on exercise and nutrition – if you’re not consistently applying your knowledge, it’s all just a bunch of mental masturbation.

So it seems like common sense to spend just as much effort on figuring out how to get yourself to be CONSISTENT, as you do learning how to eat right and exercise. Sadly, very few people do this.

And it’s too bad, because if you educate yourself about this it can take you a LONG way towards getting six pack abs. Here’s just one tip that I think will help you make better choices in your exercise and diet:

** RECOMMENDED RESOURCE **

If you want a simple plan to get six pack abs FAST, you need to pick up a copy of Six Pack Shortcuts. It’s a step-by-step exercise and eating plan that shows exactly how to get the six pack abs you’ve always dreamed of. It’s designed to be easy to follow – and it’s 100% proven to work:

***********************************

Psychologists have found that when we’re trying to make a major change (such as cleaning up our diet, or beginning an exercise program) a part of our brain will subconsciously fight the change. You will actually enter into a lowered state of consciousness when you are trying to change, where you lose sight of what’s best for you and are subconsciously “pulled” back to your old habits.

And what’s worse – YOU WON’T EVEN REALIZE IT’S HAPPENING. In fact, you’ll think that you’re sounding extremely logical and reasonable, when you’re actually sabotaging everything you’ve been working for.

One example of this is skipping workouts when it’s not necessary, and justifying it with lame excuses. Here are some that I’ve used (and that I’m sure heard being used before, and maybe even used yourself):

- I’m not going to work out because it’s bad weather today

- I’m really tired – I think a few more hours of sleep will help me more than a workout

- I think I need a “cheat” day (even though you didn’t plan it in advance)

- I have a lot going on right now – I’ll start working out tomorrow (and of course, tomorrow never comes)

- I’ll work out, once I read X book or watch Y video. After all, I don’t want to be doing anything wrong!

- I can’t afford a gym membership/training/equipment (while simultaneously wasting money on video games, junk food, and alcohol)

I’ve used all of these myself, and I know from experience they all sound like they make so much SENSE in the moment.

Six Rules for a Perfect Training Program if You’re a Skinny Guy

Remember, never fix something that isn’t broken, so if you’re a beginner bodybuilder and you like to select body parts to train based on how sore they are and it works, stick with what you’re doing. On the contrary, if you’re skinny and looking for a plan that works for you, then this is an ideal place for you to be. Here, you can find a wonderful resource for constructing your weekly training routine and a body part combination program that meets your needs. This information is based on my own experience and the time I spent training skinny guys. If you’re more into academia and research than experience-based information, then you’re still in the right place, because much of this information is based upon detailed studies.

Stop Chasing Two Goals at the Same Time!

You’re probably familiar with the saying, if you try to chase two rabbits, both are sure to escape. This also applies to training and how it should be split up. Keep in mind, each day that you wake is a new start and a new opportunity to morph your so-so, skinny fame into a hunky, beastly body that will surely earn you some respect from other men and get you noticed by the ladies.

You should invest your time each day into working out at a gym, not just spending time there. After you begin doing this, you can have the body that shows you’re in control of your physique and your destiny. You HAVE the power to get the body and whatever else, for that matter, that you want out of life.

Discontinue your current routine of going to the gym and wasting your time. In other words, stop working on multiple body parts when the muscle groups that are assisting these parts aren’t fully recovered yet. Is it really practical to expect your muscles to develop, when you don’t set them up to excel and train to their maximum capacity?

Your weekly training needs to consist of a well-planned workout that is based on your previous workout, as well as the workout to follow. This is much easier when it’s just on paper, but one workout split isn’t the only method to break up your workout routine. In fact, it’s just an instance where you can have a nearly perfect split. Mainly, this article is to help you understand that success relies on what you do today, what you did yesterday and what you’ll do tomorrow.

What a Lack of Planning Results In…

  • Let’s say you trained your chest yesterday, and you’re still sore from it the following day. When you’re at the gym, this pain will put a damper on your leg training.
  • Now, it’s arm day. Your biceps are swollen and you’re experiencing some tightness, because of the chin-ups you did yesterday. You obviously are in no condition to train your back today.
  • Your triceps are sore from the supersets you did on them yesterday. Since today is chest day, how are you going to bench press?

Maybe this sounds like something you’ve grown accustomed to; however, it’s an indication that there’s not any planning involved in your training. During this article, I’ll give you an example of how a seven-day routine should look. It might sound like an overabundance of work, but if you’re serious about getting in shape, then it’s a necessity.

1. Remember that Big Muscle Groups Should Not be Near the Small Muscle Groups.

Let’s say you start by training your arms on Monday. The advantages of this include your arms being fresh when you’re training other body parts like your back, shoulders or chest. Therefore, your arms need to be away from these parts when you create your plan, since your large muscle groups will suffer from working your arms the day before. Additionally, science states that partnering antagonist muscle groups with agonist muscle groups consequently leads to a boost in the second group of muscles to be trained. Thus, it’s vital to alternate how you train your arms on every Monday. For example, if you begin working on your biceps this week, you’ll want your arm workout next Monday to start with your triceps.

2. Make Your Legs Special.

Your legs should have their own day. So now that it’s Tuesday, you should train your legs, due to the fact that skinny guys need to particularly focus on the leg muscles. Large muscles groups like those within your legs stress your heart and the rest of your body. Your arms are basically useless anyways when you’re leg training, so in all actuality it doesn’t matter if they’re sore. In addition, the energy you use training your legs should take all your energy. You should not be able to train a second body part on the same day you’re doing your legs. Finally, after your leg training, you should definitely have worked up an appetite. This will assist you in maintaining your high calorie diet. This is a vital aspect of growing your arms and allowing them to recover from the day before.

3. Always Follow the Two Day Off, One Day On Rule.

Skinny guys are in luck with this rule, since it’s most likely the most effective muscle building split for their body type. A person’s glycogen reserve diminishes as a consequence of two days of continual training, at least that’s what I’ve found to be true. Moreover, strategically scheduling your rest days aids in the prevention of your glycogen reserve becoming low, which means you can train fresher on your workout days. This method helps to guarantee you won’t have nervous system or hormonal fatigue throughout your workout on Thursday or Friday. When you have that extra day on the weekend, it will ward off fatigue caused by your weekly training.

4. Chest and Shoulders Need to Learn to Share!

This is my personal favorite for body part combinations. They might both be large muscle groups that comprise your upper body; however, you haven’t centered your training on the arms since Monday. You know what that means? Your shoulders and arms are well rested, so you can go until they can’t take any more. Because of the location of the chest and shoulders, there’s a lot of overlap when it comes to muscle groups. They both require pressing motions, and your shoulder’s anterior head is used a great deal when you’re exercising your chest. Personally, I work my upper traps on this day, as well. Working your shoulders has a direct effect on your traps.

5. Your Back, Need I Say More?

Lightheadedness is oftentimes symptomatic of a back workout. Working on your back entails using a lot of your energy reserve; hence, you must have optimal energy and you shouldn’t be experiencing any tightness in your legs and lower back. And of course, your biceps must have already recovered to allow you to receive the most beneficial workout from weighted chin-ups and heavy rows.

6. Make One Day of the Weekend an Active Day.

Designate Saturday as your active day. Work on your cardio, calves and abs. Do a little cardio, but don’t exceed more than 40 minutes of it. Then, you should work on your legs and calves. Generally, these body parts don’t have a correlation with other muscle groups. Sunday can be your day off to relax, but make sure you rest and eat on this day. What a life, huh? You get an entire day to take it easy and chow down!

Like all workout plans, there are imperfections. But, I would continue a regimen for about four to six weeks. My other books and videos note that training a muscle only once a week has a negative impact on a workout routine, but this concept related directly to body part optimization. Ask yourself if there are changes you can make to the routine you currently implement. I chalk up my success as a body builder to a well-coordinated schedule that leaves me without any doubt of what I’m going to work on each day. My time and energy at the gym is not squandered on thinking about if this program is right for me. I can be reassured when I walk into the gym that it’s effective because I planned accordingly by using these six rules.

Which is better – Free Weights or Machines?

That’s a tough question, as both are beneficial to creating a great physique. Free weights are awesome, as they allow you to follow your body’s unique mechanical flow and range of motion. You are also forced to make those smaller “stabilizer” or “auxiliary” muscles that act synergistically to help the primary lifting muscles move the weight.

These stabilizers are also responsible for helping maintain your balance during free weight exercises. This is partly what helps prevent your body and your limbs from sloppily moving all over the place like the Scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz.”

Machines are great for allowing you to focus simply on moving the weight up and down or back and forth. Because you are locked in a predefined range of motion (only a few machines offer a free range), your stabilizer muscles will not be engaged as much as they are when performing free weight exercises. By not having to balance the weight, you have the ability to concentrate more of your effort on just pushing or pulling the weight with your primary movers. Is this better than having to also balance the weight? Not necessarily. Both are great and should be used regularly as part of a balanced training regimen. You’ll get the best of both worlds!

Also, some machine exercises can actually be more effective at helping you hit/isolate certain muscle groups than free weights can. Exercises such as the Pec Deck Flye are great because compared to the dumbbell flye, the Pec Deck allows you to get a resisted muscle contraction in the top position. The free weight dumbbell fly will not optimally stimulate the chest muscles when you reach the top position because in that position the weights are supported more by bone support and the shoulders than they are the pecs (chest muscles).

So the answer to the ultimate question, Free Weights OR Machines? It’s BOTH! If you aren’t performing both in the majority of your workouts, your workouts are suffering! Stop making excuses and include both in your training. Check out the Alpha Male Advanced Workouts program for a balanced routine that includes the best of both worlds!

Getting Started With Tabata Training

Getting Started With Tabata Training

The Corporate Athlete

By Dr. Natalie Cordova

Are you an athlete? No? How about a corporate athlete? Do you compete in the corporate world while sitting at your desk? Still no? You are an athlete! You have to understand, I see an athlete as someone that uses their body to compete. An athlete’s body must be a highly tuned, well functioning machine. Still, many corporate athletes have forgotten that they need their bodies to work as well as possible in order for them to perform at their highest level… even if they never leave their chair.

Many corporate athletes have bodies that are not working the way they should, even beginning to break down and leave them dealing with regular aches and pains as a part of their normal day. Why do our bodies break down? Typically, you can trace most of your body’s musculo-skeletal problems to imbalances, posture, and overuse.

Imbalances are easy to identify, if you know what you’re looking for. Take a look at the movements and activities you do during an average day you will see that you basically do the same things each day. Over and over again. Day in and day out. Not much variety, and not much balance. Balance would mean that you do many activities involving muscles of your front as well as your back. Good balance would also involve movements on the right and left sides of your body.

The computer user keeps their hands in front of them all day, head pushed forward and eyes glued to the screen. They keep this nearly identical posture as they drive into work, and when they drive home, before resuming this posture again at the dinner table and the couch. How many hours in a day are they imbalanced in a forward position? Eight? Ten? Sixteen? Is it any wonder that their muscles, ligaments, and tendons start to change shape?

Bad posture is also easily identified… usually on someone else. Have someone take a look at you while you work at your desk. Is your monitor up high enough or are you looking down at it by bending your neck? How’s your chair? Does it allow you to sit up straight? Are your shoulders hunched?

What about the position of your mouse, where you put the papers you are reviewing, how you hold your phone, the angle of your wrists… it can be a lot to look at! You want to make sure that your body can stay in as much of a good, well-balanced posture for as much of the day as possible. Having a friendly co-worker take a look at you and your body position can allow you to address potential issues before it’s too late. It only takes a minute, and you can return the favor by observing them at their workstation.

Overuse injuries come from doing any movement over and over again until the body part just plain wears out! These injuries can occur over a shorter period of time when imbalances and poor posture are also a part of that movement. Trauma is usually easy to identify when it involves falling down or a car accident. What about repetitive trauma, also called micro-trauma?

Micro-trauma is not so easily noticed until symptoms start to appear. The same movement or action that caused the injury becomes painful to do. That should be your red alert that you cannot keep doing that movement in the same way. Even treatment will only temporarily relieve the pain if you go back to doing the same thing the wrong way again every day.

The symptoms of your body breaking down are not always pain. Other warning signs can be there for years before pain shows up. Bad posture is already a warning sign that trouble is ahead. The typical shoulder slouching head forward posture is rampant in our society! You likely don’t have to leave your house to find someone living with this posture.

Bad posture leads to further imbalances and a speeding up of the overuse injuries. If you take a look at someone with this posture, you’ll notice that muscles in the front (like the chest muscles) start to become shorter, while the back muscles start to become longer. This is not just a visual change, but a physical change. Your muscles are actually becoming short in the front and long in the back, a serious imbalance.

Another symptom is a loss of range of motion, or a loss of the normal ability to move the spine or any other joint through all of their normal movements. Does your head turn painlessly right and left to the same degree? Can you move your head forward and back easily, or just forward? What about your low back or other joints like your wrists, elbows, and shoulders? Compare side to side and see if they are equal. Of course they could both need help, but this is a good starting point.

The good news is that most of these problems can be helped without surgery. Of course, every person is different and when they decide to do something about their problem is also very important. Wait too long and you may eliminate many conservative treatment options. Catch it early and make some changes to your workstation and you can avoid many painful lessons later.

For now, concentrate on your posture and evaluate your work station. Seek out activities that will allow some balance back into your movements, including weight workouts and stretching. If you are already experiencing pain, now is the time to do something about it. These problems rarely resolve themselves on their own. You must act by seeking the assistance of a qualified health professional.

Five “Alpha” Tips for Fat Loss and Fitness Success

Even if you’re hitting the weights hard, you may be packing some extra pounds of fat you’d like to leave behind. There’s no better time to get that butt in even better shape than right NOW! Here are some tips for you guys out there from Eric Broser, James Villepigue and Rick Collins, the creators of the Alpha Male Advanced Workouts program that has even the most experienced hardcore bodybuilders talking!

1. GET OFF THE SCALE
Americans are notoriously obsessed with their body weight, and even many gym rats start their training session with a jump on the scale. Forget it! Weigh yourself only once a month. Scales can be inaccurate, misleading, and a psychological deterrent to your success. If you add some muscle to your frame while you’re dropping fat (like you would with our program, for instance), the scale may fool you!

2. DO IT FOR THE HEALTH BENEFITS
Everybody wants to look great in the mirror. But don’t forget to pay attention to your overall health, not just your appearance. Sure, you want a program that’s going to make you look awesome, but you can add years to your life and reduce major health risks by following a sound nutrition and exercise program. And you’ll look better and feel better too!

3. CAN THE SODA AND SAVE
Soda adds useless (and expensive) calories to your diet. Just drinking water rather than sugar-rich soda can put an extra $2-$3 in your wallet each day. Over one year, that adds up to over $1,000 saved. And 100,000 fewer calories consumed! Considering that 1 pound of fat is the equivalent of 3,500 calories, that can be a weight savings of 28 pounds!

4. BE ACTIVE… BUT BE SMART
Proper diet and exercise go hand in hand. One without the other is a recipe for failure. Just because you walked for 30 minutes doesn’t mean you can reward yourself with a pint of your favorite ice cream! Find smarter ways to reward yourself for a week of hard training!

5. REDUCE THE CALORIES
Americans take in way too many calories, Period! From super-sized meals at fast food chains to enormous servings at our favorite steakhouse, we are on the receiving end of an abundance of calories. Weight reduction is a caloric formula. Calories in (through eating) versus calories out (through activity) – it’s that simple. Stick with smaller portions, and keep your protein high, especially if you’re engaged in intense training!

Combine these tips with a top-notch training program like the amazing Alpha Male Advanced Workouts and you’ll see some dramatic changes in the way you look … AND FEEL!

A Beginner’s Guide to a Muscle Building Program

I attribute the massive success I have in my life to bodybuilding. My beginnings were as a 149-pound cross-country runner. After I transformed my body into a 190-pound National Fitness Model Champion, life changed and many positive benefits arose. It doesn’t matter whether you want a impressive body, intimidating abs or you simply want to slim down, all of that is possible with bodybuilding and strength training. An outline of the program you want to follow is your first step in earning that attractive body and bulging muscles.

If you’ve only been training for a under a year, then you’re considered a beginner. For guidance as beginner, you should look toward the muscle-building workout that is illustrated below. The best part of being a newbie is that the most muscle gain will come during the first six to 12 months. This exciting time is when you will see the biggest change in your body and in your life. The only downside is that there isn’t a magic potion or a shortcut to muscle growth. Nevertheless, if you stick to the program, in three month, you’ll be heading in a positive, forward direction, rather than on a negative, backwards path.

Here are a few guidelines to take into consideration prior to beginning:

  • Think big, but too not big.

This is not meant to deter you from wanting big muscles or having big goals; however, you must be realistic or else there’s no real definable point in your goal, and it may actually be counterproductive. Being honest with yourself is crucial to success. Evaluate your level of fitness as it stands to date, and factor that into the equation that defines where you want to be three months from now. Think long-term where you want to be, as well. So set a plan that includes where you want to be in a year and even in two years. You’ll need to be focused on both types of goals, but always keep in mind that short-term goals lead to completing your long-term goals.

  • Don’t assume you weren’t successful if you don’t see overnight results.

My advice to you is to obligate yourself to bodybuilding for at least three months before you evaluate your progress. I’m sure you’re just like me and wish to see results quickly and yesterday. But, this isn’t practical. Overnight results exist, but they’re not the deciding factor, so don’t become frustrated, especially since a total transformation takes time. Celebrate every gain you earn, and make sure you appreciate that sculpting an entire body takes time and patience, and the real victory occurs over time and not in overnight spurts.

  • The time you spend in the gym only comprises part of your to-do list.

When you examine how you’re going to accomplish your goals, the time you spend muscle training is only part of the equation. The time you spend in the gym essentially lays down the foundation for potential muscle growth. Your sleep patterns, the supplements you select, the foods you eat, how much you eat and even when you eat plays a role and acts as the building blocks with which you must lay your foundation. Each one of these aspects will manipulate the rate at which you’ll notice changes in your physique.

We’ve cleaned house; now it’s time to get started on developing your muscle-building program.

A Beginner’s Guide to Muscle Building

When you muscle build as a beginner, you must include 15 different exercises that utilize basic movements You have to factor in a pyramid rep/set scheme, incorporate a change in the order in which you do exercises, train at least three times per week and continue this pattern for three months. You should start every workout with a warm-up consisting of 10 minutes of aerobic exercise, such as running, rowing, walking on an incline or even skipping. Do arm circles (when you move your arms in a circular pattern in both directions) as a light stretching exercise to loosen up tendons, ligaments and tissue in your shoulders. Sweating before you exercise is an excellent way to determine that you’re ready to hit the floor.

Sets, Reps and Rest…oh my!

During your first month, you should perform one to two sets that consist of 15 to 20 reps, increasing the weight of each set. Make sure that each workout is a little heavier than the one before. The time you rest between sets must only be 30 to 60 seconds long.

When you reach month two, you should perform three to four sets that consist of 10 to12 reps, and you should increase the weight after each set. Begin your next workout with a slightly heavier weight than you did the last workout and continue increasing, taking a 60-second breather between each set.

Once you’ve hit month three, start doing three to four sets of six to eight reps, and make sure you’re increasing the weight after each set. Again, begin each workout a little heavier than you did the last one and rest between 60 and 90 seconds between each set.

Switching Up the Routine

If you find that the workout plan is a little too difficult, you may want to break it down into two different days. Do exercises one through seven on Mondays and Thursdays and do exercises eight through 15 on Tuesdays and Fridays. Ultimately, you would have four different muscle building workouts each week, as opposed to two.

Extra Notes

  • Make sure you are learning the exercises correctly. Either pick up my muscle-building program or hire a personal trainer to teach you the correct way to do each of the exercises.
  • Think about stretching after each exercise. This benefits your muscle growth and recovery, as well as your flexibility.
  • Observe the changes you’re making to the order in which you train your muscles, because this prevents muscle imbalance from occurring. Varying your workout regimen gives each muscle group an opportunity to be the first to be trained, which results in these muscles being fresh and being able to go harder.
  • Familiarize yourself with the exercise. If you’re lifting weights with bad form, you can injure yourself, and you’ll never reach your goal. Remember, it’s not about lifting the heaviest weight.
  • You’ll have good days and bad days. Some days the weights may seem very heavy. This is normal to have both low-energy days and high-energy days. After you take charge of your diet and recovery, you’ll be able to control your performance better.
  • Focus on success in the first month, not failure. Reach your rep goals each time and do extra reps for a more difficult workout. Keep progressing each month and just be patient. Know the movements, before you push your weight limits.
  • In some cases, changes to your body will not occur until your second month or sometimes even the third. Trust the program and allow your motivation to increase - don’t let this hinder you in achieving your goals.
  • Complete each of your workouts with at least 10 minutes of cardio and conclude with some light stretching that focuses on your tighter muscle groups.

Conclusion

Once you’ve reached your third month, you’ll have a strong base to continue to work on. You’ll be strong with a shapely physique. Even your mental and physical state will have been affected in a positive manner. After you’ve arrived at this pivotal point, it’s time to make alterations to your program and concentrate on the larger goals. With this being said, your first three months need to be the same, in order to create that strong foundation. Remember, there is not a single perfect product or program. You’ll learn what works best for you as you progress. Please leave comments about your training experience as a beginner. If you’re not a beginner, leave some tips for the beginners.

But there’s good news – this is probably just because you’re making one of a few common mistakes guys make when trying to get ab definition. If you can just avoid these common errors, you’ll see much more success in your quest to get a six pack.

Mistake #1 – Doing sit ups and crunches to get a six-pack.

The biggest mistake that I see in almost every gym I’ve been to is watching people do endless ab exercises one after another in hopes of getting a flatter stomach. Ab exercises only build the ab muscles -- they don’t get rid of fat that’s covering it. In fact, doing too many ab exercises actually has a negative effect when it comes to slimming your waistline.

Think about it...when you do a lot of resistance exercises for your arms, they get bigger right? Well guess what -- if you do that for your abs they will respond the same way. When you work on your abs too much, the muscle gets really big and bulgy and actually makes your waist BIGGER. Now you have a bigger waistline than when you first started because of the larger ab muscles, plus the fat is still there covering any visibility of a six-pack.

The only way to get rid of fat on our stomach is to allow our body to convert it into energy and use it. Doing crunches and sit ups is not intense enough for our bodies to have to break down fat because the abdominal muscle so small compared to using a larger muscle group like our legs. You need concentrate on burning the fat before you start building up abdominal muscle – otherwise you’re just bulking up your beer gut.

Mistake# 2 - Doing cardio

Cardio only burns calories when you’re doing it, is doesn’t burn when your heart rate is not elevated. Think about the last time you did any type of cardio exercise. Your heart rate and body temperature was increased and when stopped they went back to normal.

Even if you did cardio 30 min a day 7 days a week, there’s 24 hours in a day so what are you burning the other 23.5 hours? Not too much, because it was a lot, you would be lean by now. Throughout the remainder of the day its then up to our natural metabolism to burn the rest of the calories. And doing cardio all day long doesn’t seem like a very reasonable solution either.

Can you think of the last time YOU did cardio? Did you get a six-pack? Did your stomach at least get a little flatter? Probably not. If it did, it’s not flat anymore isn’t it? The cold hard truth is that long cardio workouts are completely ineffective for burning fat, and for getting a six pack. If you’re spending long hours on the elliptical, treadmill or bike, you’re completely wasting your time if your goal is to get hard, defined abs.

Mistake # 3 Diets

Think of all the people you know who got on a diet, how many of them actually stayed on it. Losing weight and having a lean healthy body is a lifestyle change and unfortunately, when you ask someone to change their habits of eating that they been doing all their life, that’s almost like asking someone to change their personality permanently. Sure, you can pretend for a short period, but you will always go back to being you.

Most diets now are so low in carbohydrates; it’s likely the initial weight loss is primarily water weight, as carbohydrate encourages your body to hold water. As soon as you go back to a normal amount of carbs, the water weight comes back and the weight goes back to normal. No real fat was really loss.

There is no point in “going on a diet,” or temporarily changing your eating habits. Because as soon as you change them back, you’ll gain back all the fat you lost – and then some more on top of that.

You need to learn healthy eating habits that are also EASY to maintain – this is the only way to make the permanent change in eating that’s necessary for six pack abs.

Mistake # 5 Using fat burning supplements, diet pills, and other drugs to burn off fat.

You can’t get in shape through supplements alone. All fat burning drugs do is first suppress your appetite so you don’t feel the need to eat as much. Now your body doesn’t have the nutrients to give you energy. But wait! The fat burners are also filled with other stimulants so your energy level doesn’t go down. So what that does is decrease your natural metabolism (which is what your body does to burn calories) and increase your fat storage because your body will now go into “survival mode”

· Your body will lower its calorie burning because it’s not getting enough of it.

· Your body will hold on to your fat and not use it as energy because fat is your most valuable energy source in your body and in survival mode; it will do the smartest thing to survive.

· Your body will also break down muscle tissue as fuel causing your metabolism to lower even more.

· Once you stop taking the supplement, your food intake goes back to normal causing you to gain all the weight you loss plus more. The reason why you gain more than you started is your metabolism is now lower than when you first started due to the loss of muscle.

This is why most guys who ACTUALLY have a six pack take very few supplements, or no supplements at all.

Mistake # 5 Getting advice from people who never had flat abs.

Think about the last time you at the gym or at some sort of gathering and you received advice on how to lose your gut.

People tend to consider themselves experts at something after only doing it once or twice. When it comes to losing body fat and getting six-pack it get even worse.

You will notice a lot of times the people giving advice on how to get lean or ripped are either genetically very lean their whole life and never had a problem with excess body fat or an overweight guy who use to weigh 300lbs and is now 200lbs and still has a gut but giving advice on how to lose belly fat.

First, the skinny lean guy: Naturally lean all his life, can eat whatever he wants and always seems to have a six pack no matter what. He is genetically build that way and really has no idea how it’s like to have a gut nevertheless teach someone how to lose it. It’s like asking a rich kid who never had to work a day in his life how to make money in the real world.

Second, the fat guy who loss some weight and is now an fat loss expert:

When your 40 – 100 lbs over weight, you can walk in a circle in place for an hour and lose weight. Cut out a couple sodas or snacks a day and their goes 10lbs. But if you ask him if he ever had six-pack, the answer is always no. The lower the body fat, the harder it is to get leaner. Someone who is 40 – 100lbs overweight can lose very easily, but someone who is 10 – 15lbs away from having a six-pack can spend 6 months and not see any changes.

Mistake: # 6 Being A Gym Rat

This one applies to people who go to the gym 6-7 days a week, or who spend 2 to 3 hours at the gym, or who are twice a day members.

More is not always better. You heard the term before, “TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING IS A BAD THING”

Working out that much causes overtraining and will break down your muscles rather than build. It doesn’t give the muscles enough rest to recuperate and rebuild. Imagine a football player having to play 10 straight football games back to back everyday. Every game he is a little more fatigue than the last and his performance gets worse and worse. Give him a week to recover between games and he will play at his best.

Spending lots of time in the gym is never a substitute for a quality workout doing the RIGHT exercises. It’s far better to spend ten minutes in the gym doing the right things, than three hours doing the wrong things.

Mistake#7: Wasting money on AB Gimmicks like the:

AB ROCKER, AB LOUNGE, AB CHAIR, AB COASTER, THE CONTOUR, AB AWAY 2, AB CIRLCLE PRO, AB SWING, AB SLIDE, AB TWISTER, AB ZONE, THE IRON ROD

These machines only work on your abs, and nothing more. You’re only burning a little bit of calories because the abs is such a small muscle group and doesn’t require much energy to contract.

It’s all marketing. Hire a fitness model to be your front cover and make a couple of DVDs on how to use the machine. Then pay some people to do your testimonials and you have a new AB product.

Just like a get rich quick scheme. But this is a get lean and rip quick scheme. Think of about it, everybody has tried some get rich scheme one time or another. Did it work? Was it as easy as step 1, 2, 3?

When it comes to abs machines nobody ever got in shape using just the machines. They fail to mention the part “ in addition to low calorie diet and exercise regimen”

Mistake# 8: Lack of sleep

Sleeping affects us more than what you think. When we go to bed, our bodies replenish and rebuild physically and mentally from the wear and tear throughout the day. Today’s norm of staying up past our bed times due to computers, cell phones, 24 – hour cable has made our bodies fatigue, reduced health, and even weight increase.

Grehlin and Leptin are hormones in our body that control appetite and weight gain or loss. Leptin suppresses our appetite while grehlin increases it. When your body doesn’t get enough sleep, grehlin levels increase while leptin level decreases which means not getting enough sleep could be one of the reasons why many overeat and have weight issues. Ever experienced a sleepless night followed by a day when no matter what you ate you never felt full or satisfied? If so, then you have experienced the workings of leptin and grehlin.

When lack of sleep becomes a chronic problem, levels of grehlin increases, causing greater appetite, and levels of leptin decrease. Regardless of diet and exercise, it's possible that some obesity is caused, or made worse, by sleep deprivation.

Mistake # 9: Doing isolation workouts to rid of specific fatty areas:

Your body fat is spread out thru out your body. When you gain weight, you gain it everywhere, not just in one place. So why would you try to get rid of it just in one place? A lot of guys always tell me their ok with their legs, just need to get rid of some fat around the chest and stomach area.

Your fat doesn’t go, “ hey lets all jump on your chest today and tomorrow, we’ll go fatten up the gut area!”

So when you’re attacking the fat, which is your goal and to get a six pack you must attack it from your whole body. Instead of doing exercises like bench presses or curls you need to do functional multi body group exercises to increase more cal burning in your body so your body will be forced to utilize fat as the energy source.

This doesn’t mean you do the same isolation workouts but just all in one day, because your still only using 1 to 3 muscle groups in every individual workout instead of using your entire body. Increase the calorie burning and your fat will melt away.

Mistake# 10 – Not getting the HELP:

This is by far the biggest mistake of all that will keep most guys from ever getting the body they truly want. I know most guys don’t like to admit that they are tired and fed up with having a gut. They usually act like its not a big deal, play it off real cool by making jokes like “I don’t have a six pack – I have a KEG!” but deep down inside all guys would like to have a lean, chiseled midsection if they knew how to get it.

Trust me, I been there myself. I know exactly how its like to be embarrassed to take off my shirt when there are girls around wondering if I had a nice body and my shirt was the only illusion I had.

About 6 years ago I decided I was going to get a six-pack no matter what it took. I was at a party one night and as everyone was drinking and having a good time, this girl went up to this guy, whispered something in his ear and lifted up his shirt and holy crap, this guy had some of the baddest looking abs I have ever seen in my life. I swore his midsection looked like one of the super heroes out of a comic book. Seconds later all her friends flocked over to him and begin to flirt while they groped over his stomach. Right then I knew what ever I had to do, I was going to get me a six pack because I wanted the attention, the girls, the confidence, just the whole looking and feeling physically strong and athletic.

The last 6 years, I tried everything from crazy diets I read about to working out twice a day for 3 months straight and after years and years of trial and error I finally figured out exactly what to do to get a six-pack and maintain it. Since then, I trained and helped hundreds of guys get the body they want by showing them how to train, how to eat and some of the best shortcuts and tips I learned. Now I enjoy my life more than ever because I feel so confident, my clothes fits good, I don’t have anything to hide. I now became That GUY the one girls would grope on and go OMG for and you know what, it feels great!

If you’re reading this right now, you’re probably thinking...is it worth it? Let me tell you it’s worth every second to have this great feeling. Since then I’ve helped others do the same. I send out weekly newsletters on tips and step-by-step articles on what it takes to get a six-pack, from what to do first to get started to what to expect along the way and special tricks to do and maintain your lean midsection while still having fun and doing normal things like eating out and drinking with your buddies. I show people how to cheat on their diets and still stay ripped. I would highly suggest you check out my website to get more tips and info so I could get you started in the right direction.

Metabolic Resistance Training Bootcamps Explained

By Mike Whitfield, CTT, and Craig Ballantyne, CTT
Co-Authors, TT Metabolic Resistance Training Bootcamps

Bootcamps have come a long way, and the days of running laps over and over are dwindling away.  You already know that metabolic resistance training (MRT) is the hottest method to use with clients and campers to strip fat off in less time.

But how do you incorporate MRT into a Bootcamp setting, and how do you know if you have a good workout program designed?

=> Enter the Done-For-You TT MRT Bootcamp Workouts

A Structured and Professionally Designed Program

Every once in a while, it is certainly fun to throw together some fun exercises and just work hard.  But if you do that day in and day out, you and your clients could be asking for an overuse injury. 

That's why a thought-out, well-designed program is important to use with your campers so that they get the best results in minimum time, all while avoiding overuse injuries.

The Layout

The workouts should be laid out in superset or circuit fashion with non-competing exercises so that you can produce more work in less time.

People want to lose fat and not have to be at your location for an hour and a half. 

For example, you would do a Bodyweight Bulgarian Squat, then immediately Close-Grip Pushups.  Your lower body rests while doing an upper body exercise and vice versa.

Strength Training - When and Why

Many bootcamps make this mistake - they do a lot of cardio moves early on, like running or sprints, and then expect their campers to bust out pushup after pushup.  Or worse, there is no strength training component at all.

The strength part of a bootcamp workout should be done at the beginning after the warm-up, when their muscles are ready to work, but fresh.  This allows better effort for your campers and better results.

What Exercises to Use

Big, compound movements burn more calories and get your campers better and faster transformations.  A variety of pushups (some you may not have even heard), lunges, rows and jumping movements should be utilized to keep your campers engaged and excited.

You can also incorporate different methods to give your campers the "Wow!"experience, including the 90% method, 1-1/2 rep style and more. These are fun gems you can use to keep your campers coming back for more great workouts.

The 3 Keys to a Solid MRT Bootcamp Workout

We already talked about strength training and how it is missing or misplaced in a lot of bootcamps.  But another key to use in your workouts is conditioning.  You can typically use a circuit of bodyweight movements with little rest (30 seconds to 1 min) that will skyrocket your client's conditioning.  They will appreciate that when they can go up and down the stairs easily.

Finally, the metabolic finisher and/or intervals - When most people think of intervals, they think of treadmills or bikes. 

But you can actually perform intervals just using bodyweight exercises or moves like KB Swings.

The metabolic finisher is usually a superset or circuit with a variety of reps and sets with heart-pounding moves like Burpees, Swings, Pushups and more.  They use incomplete recovery with very short periods.  They finish off your campers, revving their metabolism all day long.

The Most Important Thing to Remember - Timed Sets

The one thing that could make or break your bootcamp is using specific reps rather than timed sets.  For example, you tell your campers to perform 15 Bodyweight Squats.  That might be the perfect amount of reps for some, while others will struggle getting that many.  For advanced people, that might be too easy. 

That's why you want to use timed sets.  By asking your campers to perform 30 seconds of Bodyweight Squats, everyone can do what they can in that time, allowing people of all fitness levels to benefit.

Have Fun With Your Workouts

Any bootcamp workout is fun when you use some kind of camper interaction. This could be allowing one of the campers call the shots, or having your campers partner up for shadow drills, and more.  The TT MRT bootcamp workouts utilize this strategy throughout the manual.

Be Unique

By offering your unique energy and enthusiasm, you will have campers coming back.  You should even use unique exercises to keep the workouts fresh and exciting, like:

Spiderman Climb with a Reach
Total Body Extension
Plank to Triceps Extension (crushes the triceps with bodyweight only)
And more...

These unique exercises and more are built right into the done-for-you workouts.

Have fun, be safe, and bring the energy.

The Top 8 Pain Relievers You've Never Heard Of

Besides another season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" there's one other thing we wouldn't mind seeing go away...

     ...pain!

Pain is one thing in our lives we ALL want to get rid of forever. Unfortunately, with every passing year... it seems to consume our lives more often – and with more intensity.

Therefore it makes sense that we should be looking for ways to prevent and eliminate it... right?

Today I'd like to share with you 8 of my top “pain-busting” ingredients you need to be taking in order to banish virtually ANY pain you experience into the abyss... forever.

8 Pain Relievers You've Never Heard Of <=== CLICK HERE

As with most things in the world, there is a ton of misinformation out there...

And it's no different when it comes to pain relief. That's why I think you're going to be excited to learn about these little-known natural pain relievers.

One of the 8 covered in this article was found to reduce arthritic joint pain by 80% by itself! Another has been used for thousands of years in China to relax muscle spasms...

I'm pretty sure you've never heard of most, if not all of them, yet they are all very effective for reducing pain.

Top Vitamins for Women Revealed

Ok, so you know Vitamins and Minerals are important. Most every woman knows that.

However, not everyone understands WHY they are so important for their body. So I recently asked Registered Dietitian Jayson Hunter to give us the easy rundown on the Top Women's Vitamins. Here's what he had to say:

Vitamin A - This vitamin contributes to the health of you eyes, skin and nails.

Vitamim B - While B Vitamins are often referred to as "energy vitamins" they don't actually give you a surge of energy, per se. What they actually do is help facilitate metabolic reaction in the body to create energy. They're also necessary for a  healthy metabolism.

Vitamin C - This women's vitamin is a great antioxidant and immune system booster. It also helps skin health.

Vitamin D - Helps women absorb calcium. And it may help prevent certain types of cancer.

Calcium - It's actually a mineral not a vitamin. And as most women know already, it improves bone density.

Pretty simple, right? But you can also see why it's so important to understand vitamins for women. When we understand the reasons to make healthier choices it helps us make them.

Now, I get asked all the time by women which vitamin supplements, if any, they need to be taking. Great question.

Well, if your nutrition is 100% perfect all the time then you probably don't need to take any.

But that's not the case for most women. Most women are busy as heck and don't always find the time for proper nutrition. So if that's the case with you I recommend taking a Whole Foods based Multi-Vitamin. And the only one I recommend is Prograde Nutrition's VGF 25+ for Women.

It's actually really cool because it's literally made from 25 veggies, greens and fruits. You should definitely check out Prograde's Women's Vitamins.  At the very top of the page is the list of ingredients. You can see the 25 whole foods they use to make VGF 25+ for Women.

Yours in health,

Arthur M.

PS - Pretty cool, huh? The nutrition of 25 whole foods in a bottle!

Super Tough Interval Training Workout

I recently heard about Craig Ballantyne's infamous 20-10 bodyweight squat and pushups 'finisher' from his most popular Body Transformation workout.

So I tried it, and...WOW!

What an intense workout.

Here's how it goes:

The Bodyweight Squat Timed Intervals

1) Bodyweight Squats
a. (20 second squats + 10 second hold in bottom position x 8 rounds)

2) Pushups
a. (20 seconds pushups + 10 second hold in top position x 4 rounds)

3) Plank + Side Plank
a. (20 second plank + 10 second side plank alternating sides x 8 rounds)

4) Touchdown Lunges + T-Pushups
a. (20 seconds lunges + 10 seconds T-pushups x 4 rounds)

It's all part of an amazing 3-day per week workout program that has helped his Transformation Contest Winners lose up to 33 pounds of fat in just 12 weeks.

That's right, 33 pounds in 12 weeks - and yes, that's for men AND women.

You can get the full 4-week program here for $7:

That's less than $2 per week...or about $1 per pound of fat you'll lose this month with his workouts.

That's an amazing fat loss deal.

Here's exactly how you do the workout, as described by Rachel, one of Craig's Turbulence Training clients:

"In exercise one, you do repetitive squats for 20 seconds.

When your interval timer beeps (or when you see the clock hit the 20 second mark), you lower to the bottom part of the squat and hold for 10 seconds. Once ten seconds passes, you repeat... so in total you will be squatting for 4 minutes without a break.

It's tough. Really tough.

In exercise 2, you do 20 seconds worth of pushups, then you hold in the top position for 10 seconds and you do this for 4 rounds (so its essentially 2 minutes of continual pushups, the only break being the 10 sec hold at the top).

For the plank and side plank- you do a 20 second plank, then rotate and hold a 10 second right side plank, then back to a regular plank, then to a 10 second left side plank...so all in all you're doing 4 minutes of plank...mostly in regular plank but with the side planks as well.

Use the same protocol with the last exercise.

All in all it takes 12 minutes, but it's a super-tough 12-minute challenge.

Enjoy." – Rachel

You can get the full Transformation Workout PLUS a free bonus fat loss workout for only $7 here:

Arthur M.
