If you want to know how to reduce your tummy, then pay attention to this article because I’m going to lay out an easy and fool proof plan to enable you to reach your goal. Getting rid of your stomach is one of the hardest things to do because you have so many obstacles in your way.
For example, if you keep doing the same type of workout over and over again, then that’s something that will definitely hold up your progress. But you need to venture outside of your comfort zone in order to see results. You need to experiment with different things, nothing bad can happen from it except the number on the scale going down.
For example, when I go to my own gym to get a workout in, I see the same people doing theClick here to continue reading

I got an email the other day from a loyal subscriber asking the very simple question about exercise progression. He was following my 3×3 workouts for fat loss and wanted to know how he could progress from week to week or month to month.
He quoted a statement from Men’s Health about how they said you should switch up the exercises around every 4-6 weeks.
So this got me thinking, if he had this question then many others probably have the same question.
Now when it comes to getting the best results possible you have to do this FIRST AND FOREMOST…
TRACK YOUR PROGRESS.
By tracking your progress you can see yourself progressing from week to week, workout to workout. I’m not only talking about weight here. I’m talking about number of repetitions performed, number of sets, total volume lifted, was the weight heavier, lighter, was yourClick here to continue reading

Training so many different individuals with numerous goals and characteristics, I’ve been very blessed and lucky to try out a bunch of different programs, tactics, and tricks in order to get them the best results possible.
There’s a lot more that goes into a training program than most people think. For example, the program does have to be somewhat fun, non boring, and engaging. At the same time it has to be challenging and push the person with intensity because without intensity, you’re just not going to get anywhere with your results.
And that’s the biggest problem I see with most people when they are exercising on their own. They just don’t push themselves hard enough to get their body to adapt and change. Listen, your body HATES when you exercises.
It does not want to change and adapt. It wants to remain at homeostasis because that’s the easiest level for it toClick here to continue reading

If you want to learn how to lose weight and gain muscle then you have to follow a proven program, diet, and training regimen that will allow your body to torch excess belly fat while being able to build a considerable amount of muscle at the same time. This is the best of both worlds for anyone, but it is one of the hardest things that you can do at the same time. The reason for this is not really your exercise program, but your diet. It needs to be spot on and you need to manipulate your carbohydrate intake in order to let this phenomenon to happen.

I love any type of workout that allows me to get outside and use funny and odd looking equipment. In this case, it’s usually anything having to do with my weighted dragging sled that I made for less than $20, pushing my Camaro around my old high school parking lot, throwing 50 lb plates up in the air as high as they can go, or doing farmers walks with 60 pound buckets full of sand. Am I little crazy? Maybe some might think so, but they’re usually those really lazy types who like to make excuses for being out of shape, overweight, and unhealthy. They’ll be converted to the dark side one of these days
Anyways, this gladiator workout is going to be short and sweet and contain many elements and pieces of equipmentClick here to continue reading

So I’m in bed one night and I couldn’t fall asleep for the life of me.
That’s my big problem sometimes especially when I have a lot of ideas running through my mind or things that need to get done. For the life of me I just won’t be able to fall asleep and I lay there tossing and turning like a young child whose having a bad dream. So I’m tossing and turning and my mind is running at 100 m.p.h. Next thing I know I look up at the clock at it’s 3:30 a.m. I said to myself “great, only 2 more hours until I have to get up”, let alone I went to bed at 10 p.m. the night before.
So in order to try and calm my mind down and get some sort of rest, I started thinking of working out and actually going through themotions. The loadingClick here to continue reading

You hear a lot about hiit cardio all over the internet and in the fitness and healthy magazines that you can pick up in your grocery stores isles when you’re about to check out. What hiit stands for is High Intensity Interval Training and this is what we are going to talk about today.
HIIT cardio is my opinion is one of the best ways for you to completely transform your physique, get in shape and lose pounds of stubborn belly fat. There are many reasons for this but the biggest one is because of the afterburn effect that it has on your body’s metabolism. The afterburn effect is just a fancy way of talking about excess post oxygen consumption levels. You see when you do any type of intense exercise; you basically throw your body out of homeostasis. It doesn’t like to be thrown out of homeostasis because then itClick here to continue reading

If you want to get in shape fast then you need to follow specific exercise guidelines in order to reach your goal. But don’t worry because it’s a lot easier than you might think. A lot of people tend to get overwhelmed in the beginning of an exercise program because they can’t imagine themselves being able to do all the things that they see other people doing. But make no mistake you can get there and will if you just follow a proven plan and put all of your effort into it. Remember Rome was not built in a day and neither will your fitness level, but it will be much faster to reach your end destination than it took Rome to reach it’s epitome of power.

Chest exercises for women will truthfully be the same thing for men; however the big and major difference between a man and a woman that I have seen when it comes to working out and developing upper body strength is that women lag behind by a lot. This is normal though as men have more upper body mass than a woman, but a woman generally has an increased amount of lower body muscle mass than a man.
However, don’t fret because they are plenty of awesome chest exercises for women to do to bring up their upper body strength and today we are going to focus on only one exercise with many variations. This exercise does not receive enough credit when it comes to training the upper body muscles especially the chest. It’s often overlooked in most training programs because of its simplicity. And the exercise that I’m talking about isClick here to continue reading

I’m usually not a big fan of strictly ab workouts because my core and stomach muscles get hit hard with all of the heavy free weight exercises that I train with during my workouts, but once in awhile it just feels great to do a complete workout devoted to my abs. Maybe if I was trying to do a bodybuilding competition then I would devote more time to bringing out my abs, but until then I’ll stick with an ab workout every now and then.
Now when it comes to abdominal training and building up your abs, there are some important points that you need to understand. The first thing is that crunches and situps are very over rated. I rarely do them anymore, especially sit ups. I’ll occasionally do crunches with clients but only to work the rectus abdominus somewhat. I’m not worried that crunches will cause any injury likeClick here to continue reading
