3 Ab workouts that will make your core sore!

I’m sure you’ll agree that the #1 thing people look at to judge whether you are fit or not is your waist, right?

The reality is, every loves the look of a slim waistline. And… as I’m sure you now know, the best way to slim your waistline is to use workouts that are organized into progressions.

This is how gymnasts train their abs and nobody can argue with their results, right?

Which is why today, I wanted to hook you up with…

=> 3 Progressive Ab Workouts That Will Make Your Core Sore!

These 3 workouts are short (less than 4-minutes) and you can add them into the end of your existing workouts so you can see the powerful results you’ll get from using progressive workouts :)

I just figured that since I’ve been sharing a bunch of info about “progressive movement workouts” this week, I might as well hook you up with an example…

==> Here’s 3 Follow-Along AB Workouts For You! No Strings Attached :)

Enjoy the feeling of your abs getting worked in 3-4 minutes!

To Your Health and Fitness,
Arthur M.

P.S. Just in case your a beginner who’s not sure these are for you, or… you’re advanced and think they may be too easy. These free ab workouts are laid out in Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced format so I can assure that one of these 3 workouts is perfect for you!

A 3 Phase Flat Belly Diet For You :)

You know what I really hate?

I hate the fact that almost every single diet out there is created as an end all be all diet that will work for everyone. When… in reality, everyone is different and not every diet will fit into your lifestyle which means… you won’t do it!

The good news is… for today’s fast action CT-50 bonus, my good friend Tyler created a system called The Flat Belly Accelerator Diet And Fat Loss tracker Journal.

=> Get The Flat Belly Accelerator Diet And Fat Loss Tracker Journal FREE

Just like his CT-50 system, he took a progressive approach to fat loss that I’ve never seen done before…

Instead of offering up one diet that he expects everyone to follow, Tyler created 3 different diets, each one more complex then the one before it.

The beginner or Phase 1 diet, is really quite simple… He has a few rules in there, no calorie counting whatsoever and offers up a no holds barred cheat day. And… if you’re a beginner, he’s seen people loss up to 32lbs in 30 days using just this Phase 1 diet.

And… if Phase 1 is to simple, he expands it even further into a section for intermediate dieters with those last 10lbs of fat too lose. He calls this the Phase 2 diet and it’s a bit more challenging, but the results will astound you! If you follow this diet even just for 30 days, your body, health and energy will be completely transformed.

Finally… if the Phase 2 diet is still too easy for you, Tyler created a Phase 3 “cleanse” diet which is only meant to do for 2 weeks max. The reason for this is he doesn’t want you to lose weight too fast like he did when he first started testing this diet. In FACT, he told me the story of his first test on it. He said…

“I started Phase 3 with the intention of cleansing my body and figured I would lose a pound or two in the process. I committed to 28 days and about 7 days into it the weight loss began to accelerate. I ended up losing 14lbs in those 28 days and the crazy part is that I was not even trying to lose weight! In fact, my wife will tell you how annoyed she was that I had to spend hours a day eating just to prevent myself from losing weight even faster.”

His wife also tried it and effortlessly lost 8lbs and she was already skinny!

The point is, there’s a diet for everyone and if you’re stuck in a diet rut, I highly recommend you grab a copy of The (3 Phase) Flat Belly Accelerator Diet And Fat Loss Tracker Journal while it’s free…

Fix Your Broken Metabolism In 5 Days (step-by-step)

Now you might be thinking, “you can’t change your metabolism in 5 days!”
 
Well, I’m happy to say you are wrong. The reason YOU might not be able to do it is because you don’t have the right tools.

This 5-Day Fast Metabolism Repair Plan contains 10 essential tools for building a fast metabolism and a healthy, fit body.
 
Plus, it has an EXACT 5-day implementation plan for you to use so you can boost up your metabolism FAST!

Here’s 3 of the tools and recommendations on how you can use them to boost your metabolism all day long:

Tool #1 - Get Enough Sleep

Sleep is perhaps the most under appreciated element of health and fat loss.
 
It is responsible for the resetting and regulation of your hormonal system and for that reason it is critical in helping you to create a hormonal environment that supports a fast metabolism and rapid fat loss.

General Recommendations: Sleep a minimum of 6 hours per night with a goal of averaging 7.5-9 hours. Get the highest quality sleep you can by sleeping in a pitch black room and avoiding television and other bright dynamic lights for at least 30 minutes before bed.

=> Get The Whole 5-Day Fast Metabolism Repair Plan As A FREE BONUS <----- ONLY 23Hours Left

Tool #2 - Drink Lots Of Cold Water

Most people don't drink enough water to support their metabolism and detoxification. To start with you must drink enough water in order for your body to function properly.

In addition to quantity, by drinking your water cold (exclusively before meals, not after) you can accelerate your metabolism even further. This is accomplished through a process called thermogenic homeostasis.

What this means is your body likes to be a certain temperature, 98.6 degrees to be exact. When something forces your body to cool down below this temperature your body will react by producing heat.

This production of heat requires calories to happen and will thus increase your metabolism.

General Recommendations: Drink 32oz (1L) of fresh cold water first thing in the morning and 16oz (0.5L) of fresh cold water before each meal. Do not consume cold water after your meals as this can negatively affect digestion.

Tool #3 - Start Walking Daily

Walking is perhaps the best fat burning exercise EVER!

By walking every day you can not only put your metabolism into the perfect fat burning zone (usually between 50-65% of your maximum heart rate) you can also reduce stress, clear your head, get fresh air, absorb some much needed sunshine and more!

For the last 5 years I have been walking a minimum of 20 minutes every day and on days when I have extra time there’s nothing I love to do more then go for a long hour+ walk with my dog and family.

General Recommendations: Start by walking a minimum of 15 minutes every day. From there work up to 20+ minutes of brisk walking daily, preferably in an outdoor setting where you can get fresh air and sunshine.

=> Get The Whole 5-Day Fast Metabolism Repair Plan As A FREE BONUS <----- ONLY 23 Hours Left

As you can see, these are 3 powerful and simple tools you can use to get healthy, get lean and ultimately boost your metabolism.

If you want to know all 10 tools, and a step-by-step 5 day action plan as to how you should combine them for fast metabolic results then you’ve got till the timer runs out before it’s too late and you miss out on this special BONUS.

Doctors wrong about this bone health supplement (STOP taking now!)

This news comes straight from the hallowed halls of Harvard. Their ongoing Nurses' Health Study (started way back in 1976) discovered how calcium can actually WEAKEN bones.

Our friends at The Healthy Back Institute have the full scoop for you in a newly updated book called The Calcium Lie 2. You can request to have a free copy mailed to you at the following link:

Click here to request your FREE copy

The Calcium Lie 2 will give you the real secret on building strong bones no matter what your age. But this isn't just about bones, you'll also learn the link between calcium and...

Heart disease - Did you know doctors keep your heart ticking by BLOCKING out calcium (Hint: Why else would over 6 million American's take calcium channel blockers every single day?)

Anti aging - What the longest living people in the world eat on a daily basis, and how you can match their longevity.

Obesity - The hidden link between hunger pains and calcium (how to lose weight without feeling like you are starving).

Memory - How jellyfish can prevent memory decline.

Cancer - How milk DOUBLED the risk of prostate cancer in men.

Sexual health - How you can replace Viagra with this common household food that costs less than $5 per month!

Plus much more...

In The Calcium Lie 2, Dr. Robert Thompson (voted "Best Physician in America" in 1996) explains how he first noticed the dangers of calcium while delivering babies as an OBGYN.

You see, certain women would experience a rash of cavities after childbirth. While researching why, he also learned about two factors that cause over 50% of infant deaths...certain deficiencies that lead to lower IQ scores in babies...and even how a woman's placenta can reveal her risk for heart disease later in life.

And it was all related to calcium.

After continued research, he released the first volume of The Calcium Lie in 2008 to get the word out about all of the dangers of calcium and the truth about bone health.

For a limited time, The Healthy Back Institute is giving away copies of Dr. Thompsons newly updated The Calcium Lie 2 (Plus a few special bonuses you can't get anywhere else).

I highly recommend you click here to grab a free copy of this book while supplies last.

Top 10 Best Strength Exercises

STRENGTH is the container from which all other physical qualities.

For example…

* If your goal is hypertrophy – the stronger you are the more weight you’ll be able to lift, the bigger you’ll get.

* If your goal is power – the stronger you are, the more weight you’ll be able to lift at a faster pace, the more explosive you’ll get.

* If your goal is explosiveness – the stronger you are the more explosive you will be through plyometric movements.

* If your goal is endurance – the stronger you are, the more weight you’ll be able to lift for a longer, more metabolically demanding duration, thus building endurance.

Even cardiovascular (of all things), the stronger you are, the better you will be at any endurance event.

Today, I’d like to teach you an article written by my good friend Funk Roberts. He is one of the top MMA strength & conditioning coaches in the world. He has trained some of the best athletes and he has some great information for you today.

The 10 best strength exercises:
In short, they are…

1. Deadlifts
2. Barbell Squat Variations
3. Weighted Pull Ups
4. Barbell Bench Press
5. Turkish Get Ups (KB/DB)
6. Barbell Military Press
7. Barbell Lunge Variations
8. Barbell Bent Over Rows
9. Weighted Step Ups – Unilateral strength
10. Weighted Parallel Bar Dips


The squat, deadlift, bench press, and shoulder press are the best strength-building exercises, period. The pull-up and row are great moves too.

Below are the 10 best strength exercises…

1. Deadlifts
The deadlift is a amazing exercise for building your posterior chain (Hamstrings, glutes, lumbar) which are all extremely important for almost all physical movements.

The deadlift should be the core strength exercise for all people looking to build strength and size to their entire body.

Other variations include sump deadlifts and trap-bar deadlifts

To learn how 72 of the top experts train with these exercises and other exercises, CLICK HERE <=

2. Barbell Squat Variations
The front squat and Zercher squat, especially, are extremely effective for building upper and lower body strength. The front and Zercher squats allow you to fully extend the hips and force better technique.

The Zercher is easy on the wrists, elbows, and shoulders. The back and the front squats demand good flexibility and skill in carrying the bar.

3. Weighted Pull Ups – Pull Up program
Weighted pull-ups is an upper body strengthening exercise where the body is suspended by the arms.

Since you are moving your body through space (not just moving a weight) you develop whole-body functional strength.

4. Barbell Bench Press
Bench Press Builds Strength and Power: if you are looking for a reliable strength-training workout, bench press is your best option.

Technique is very important with bench pressing as it may place strain on the scapulae or shoulder blades and the rotator cuff when done incorrectly.

Practicing proper form – including keeping your feet firmly planted, maintaining a straight back and keeping your shoulders and glutes flat on the bench at all times – helps prevent these injuries.

I wouldn’t use the bench press all year round, but would put together a benching program to increase your overall LEARN how to increase your benching reps with good technique.

5. Turkish Get Ups (KB/DB)
The Turkish Get-Up is a highly functional movement that requires all the muscles of the body working together in order to accomplish the task.

The Turkish Get-Up is a highly functional movement that requires all the muscles of the body working together in order to accomplish the movement. You need shoulder flexibility, stability and wrist strength.

The kettlebell method also has a strong effect on strengthening your grip.

The Turkish get-up strengthens your core, all your major muscle groups, smaller stabilizers, tendons and ligaments.

6. Barbell Military Press
When this is performed correctly, the basic barbell military press is an exceptional upper body, trunk and cores strengthening exercise.

You can use the seated or standing military press versions. Because your rotator cuff is vulnerable when using these exercises, it is very important to perform the movement with proper form.

During the exercise keep your body tall and straight.

If executed properly, the hard work you put in on Standing Military Presses will pay out dividends to your overall conditioning.

7. Barbell Lunge Variations

The benefits of doing exercises for your legs one leg at a time are numerous. You will develop better coordination, get rid of muscle imbalance between your limbs and last but not least become athletic in a very functional manner.

You will also increase your hip flexor flexibility, which is key for grappling and throwing powerful kicks and punches.

Doing lunges puts your body in a position to isolate and activate the glutes.

The lunge will also help improve core stability. Variations of lunge that are effective are dumbbell and Zercher lunges.

8. Barbell Bent Over Rows
The Row is a great pulling and back exercise. You will also improve the posterior chain. It is important to practice good form when performing this exercise by never allowing your spine to bend throughout the exercise.

With all of the upper body benefits it’s easy to overlook the full body stabilization effect of the barbell row.

The bent over barbell row requires strength from the hands all the way down to the feet. The feet, legs, hips and core have to work just to maintain a stable position throughout the exercise.

9. Weighted Step Ups – Unilateral strength
Everyone looking to build strength can benefit from the weighted step-ups for lower body strength development.

The quadriceps and glutes are the primary movers during the step-up exercise.

Secondary movers include stabilizers, which help stabilize the body during the movement, and synergist, including the adductors, or inner thigh muscles of the leading leg, and the calf muscles of the following leg.

The hamstrings and calf muscles of the leading leg act as stabilizers, as do your lower back and stomach muscles.

10. Weighted Parallel Bar Dips
The dip is one of the best exercises to build chest, tris, shoulders muscles in a different angle and range of motion than pushups and bench press.

This is also an amazing exercise to develop upper body and push strength,. Because the parallel dips have no support you are forced to lift your entire bodyweight.

Using these 10 exercises and lifting maximally builds the quality of absolute strength, which is just a quality that anyone looking to increase strength needs.

***
Wow! That’s some great information.

The reason I wanted to share with you this article is not only to help you develop more strength.

Funk has an incredible bundle of programs that he has packaged together called The Combat Bundle.

He has worked hard to reach out to 72 of the top trainers in the world and collect their workout programs into one bundle.

3 Most Common Mistakes People Make When Using Kettlebells

You’ve seen them everywhere.

On the “The Biggest Loser”, on shelves at your local Wal-Mart, tucked away in the corner of your gym, and in fitness stores up and down the country.

What’s this latest trend?

Kettlebell training.

With such huge media hype, there normally comes a huge slump soon after similar fads as the hordes move on to the next new shiny thing.

Health and fitness fads come and go, but kettlebell training is here to stay.

Not since spinning took group classes by storm has there been such a buzz about a new training method.

Kettlebell training is incredibly effective for cardiovascular development. Its popularity is well-deserved.

Kettlebell training helps you build incredible lean muscle, explosive power, and cardiovascular endurance. You don’t need expensive equipment or a gym membership either.

No treadmills (aka “dreadmills”) or boring cardio equipment, just a few kettlebells and you’re set!

With such great benefits, it’s no surprise everyone wants in on the action!

Unfortunately, most people are going about it in the wrong way. Whether it’s picking the wrong routine or not knowing how to perform the movements correctly, people are making mistakes.

I would like to share with you some tips on how you can stay injury-free and get the most from your kettlebell workouts.

So without further ado, here are the 3 most common mistakes people make when using kettlebells.

Mistake #1 – Sacrificing Form
We’ve all seen some pretty cool video on YouTube of fancy kettlebell moves. But if you try out some of these moves as a beginner, you’re very unlikely to be using correct form.

Pain in your lower back hurt after your workout? Or maybe your wrists?

These aren’t symptoms of a good workout. These are symptoms of bad form.

Let’s take the kettlebell clean as an example. If you have lower back pain after a workout, chances are that you’re using your back to lift the weight.

Rather than hinging at the hips to get the weight up, you should be driving through your heels with your legs, while bracing your core. This takes some of the load off your lower back.

Some people also get bruised wrists from the kettlebell clean, as they flip the kettlebell over their hand at the top of their movement, causing it to collide with their wrist.

This is not correct form.

Instead, you should be rotating the elbow as you pull the weight up, then catching it at around shoulder height. Your body and a slight squat absorb the impact instead of your wrists, helping keep the injury-free.

Mistake #2: Using the Biceps
The main muscles that should be driving kettlebell movements are the hips, legs, and core. Not the arms.

Here’s what the movement should involve:

Start with feet shoulder-width apart and slightly bent knees. Keep your arms long as you grip the kettlebell. Imagine they’re ropes attached to your shoulders.

Push through your heels and drive your hips forward as you explode upwards.

Your legs create the momentum; your arms just grip the kettlebell and finish the swing movement.

It’s common to see folks yanking the kettlebell with their arms because they’ve rounded their back and aren’t driving with their legs.

Kettlebell movements should engage the bigger muscles of the lower body, such as the quads, glutes, hamstrings and core, NOT the upper body.

Mistake #3: Performing Isolation Exercises
Kettlebells were not made for bicep curls. They were made for powerful, explosive, multi-joint movements that are ballistic and dynamic.

Kettlebell swings, when done properly with good form, should engage multiple large muscle groups for maximum power and exertion. Sure, you can use kettlebells as if they were dumbbells, but why not just use dumbbells?

Kettlebells were made for power and developing full-body explosiveness.

-
So there you have it.

The 3 most common mistakes people make when using kettlebells.

Don’t fall into these common traps. If you take the time to learn how to use kettlebells properly, they’re one of the best pieces of equipment you’ll ever have in your training arsenal.

One of the best ways to learn kettlebell training is to rely on guidance from the experts.

For the first time in… well… the first time EVER 72 of the top fitness experts have come together.

Isolation vs Compound Exercises

Are you one of those people that do workout “splits”?

You know the kind I’m talking about…
* bi’s and tri’s
* chest and back
* legs and shoulders

…going from machine to machine trying to hit specific body parts.

How discouraging is it that you just can’t seem to make any gains?

AND

How bored are you with these workouts?

That is probably because you are making this one big mistake.

You are using Isolation Exercises!

That’s right! You are not making gains fast enough, because you working out using isolation exercises.

Isolation exercises do NOT stimulate the release of growth hormone (GH).

GH triggers fat metabolism for energy use in muscle growth, which means you lose fat while gaining dense muscle.

Growth Hormones also enhance protein synthesis in your muscles, making them stronger and larger, while you get leaner and more muscular.  It’s pretty powerful.

(Not to worry ladies you will NEVER BULK UP, unless you plan on taking STEROIDS… PLEASE don’t!).

You’ve got to work out in a way that boosts your level of GH production naturally—making the muscle building process FASTER and more efficient.

Research shows that the most effective way to increase GH production is to use compound exercises. Compound exercises are movements that require more than one joint and more than one muscle group.

Using compound exercises demand more muscles to be used at the same time.  This places significant stress on the body, which responds by producing more GH.

Isolated exercises simply won’t recruit enough muscle fibers to stimulate significant GH.

The most effective way for you to increase GH production, to build lean muscle mass while promoting overall muscular balance is to use full-body workouts with compound exercises.

Today, I have something very special for you.

In fact, I have NEVER seen anything like this.

Its called, The Combat Bundle and is a collection of 72 amazing workout systems to help you build strength, burn fat and pack on muscle.

Are You Frittering Away Your Life With Exercise?

I had always suspected that my complete lack of interest in exercise had some kind of logical foundation to it. But it wasn't until recently that I was able to pinpoint the reason.

And no wonder. Because it turns out my reluctance to set foot in the gym has at its root the now-confirmed notion in my mind that exercising for me is a complete waste of time and effort.

At least it would be if I did any.

That's because like most people, if I actually DID exercise I would have done it completely the WRONG way. Which is to say that I would have spent my time working out like 95 percent of the rest of the population - who do completely the WRONG thing.

But wait a minute. ANY kind of exercise is surely better than NO exercise. Right?

Short answer: yes. Longer answer: well, it kinda depends...

Like most people, I tend to picture myself running, swimming, hitting the stationary bicycle, or even committing to that dreadful "go nowhere" machine when I think about entering a gym to put in the hours needed to get into shape. And I DO think about this stuff, because when I stand in front of the mirror and turn sideways there can be no doubt that - to put it mildly - I am in need of a tune-up!

But according to fitness professional Carolyn Hansen, who co-owns a fitness gym and has watched people try to get into shape for more than 30 years now, the image I have of the work needed to get the job done is the wrong one.

Too many people spend too much time in the gym and walk out no better off than when they went in. That's what Carolyn says in her FREE REPORT that explains how to "Achieve Double The Results In Half The Workout Time":

Click here to discover How To Get The Benefits Of TWO Workouts In One

According to her, people fritter away their time doing what they THINK they need to do in a gym, but in actuality they are getting almost nothing in return for their time and effort.

On the one hand that makes me feel better. At least I have been frittering away my time doing things I like to do, of which exercise is not one of them.

On the other hand, I am paying for my laziness because the trade off is increased risk of chronic disease, a miserable period of old age, and a reduced life span.

At least, that's what Carolyn says in her book, along with providing a prescription for how to right this problem by making use of the most effective and efficient forms of exercise that even LAZY people like me should be able to implement if we simply decided that we really liked the idea of living a long, sustainably-enjoyable, and disease-free life.

Actually, that doesn't sound all that bad, does it?

Wasting Your Time In Exercise Wonderland?

Physical fitness never comes easy.

Especially not if you take to exercise like Alice does when she visits Wonderland and encounters the Red Queen's race.

As Alice quickly discovers - somewhat frustratingly - though she runs and runs she remains in exactly the same spot.

So she quips to the Red Queen that where she comes from "you'd generally get to somewhere else - if you run very fast for a long time, as we've been doing."

"A slow sort of country!" the Queen roars back at her incredulously. "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

Now I'd love to be able to tell you that Lewis Carroll brilliantly anticipated the treadmill a good century before its time, but that's just not the case. In the early nineteenth century treadmills were used as punishment devices for people sentenced to hard labor in prisons. Of course, if you have spent any time using a treadmill machine in an effort to get fit you will know that this curious historical note has a real ring of the truth about it!

Not only does running on the spot literally get you nowhere fast, according to fitness expert Carolyn Hansen it's a COMPLETE waste of your time if your goal is to improve your level of fitness.

Carolyn co-owns a gym, and like thousands of gym-owners across the world she concedes to the client's desire to stock her gym with a more than sufficient supply of the "go nowhere" exercise machines.

"But in my heart," she says, "I know that the people using them are getting NOWHERE near the benefits of physical exercise that they COULD be getting from the time they allocate to pursing their fitness goals."

So what SHOULD they be doing instead?

According to Carolyn they should be stepping OFF those treadmills and doing the kinds of exercise that will give you the benefits of TWO workouts in one. And in HALF the time!

If you want to learn how, grab her FREE REPORT which answers that exact question:

Click here to discover How To Get The Benefits Of TWO Workouts In One

As Carolyn would say, this may be the way to break out of your Wonderland experience in the gym once and for all.
