Ok guys today we are going to talk about REAL CORE (AB) TRAINING!
What is the first thing that you think about when you hear the words “ab workout?”
Most people think instantaneously about crunches, sit ups, usually something that has them lying on the floor and moving either their upper body or lower body.
Well I am hear to tell you that A REAL AB WORKOUT REQUIRES MORE WORK!
We must start thinking about ab workouts differently…
#1- Isolation is key!
Isolation means holding a certain position with max control for certain amount of time.
The plank is the most fundamental core exercise you can do when done properly. It involves isolating just your abdominal exercise while maintaining control in your whole entire body.
If you are wanting to start real core training, this is where you need to start!
Examples of these types of exercises:
– Banded Knee Tucks
– Weighted Planks
– L-Sit Holds
#2- Do exercises that require you to stand!
Too often we are sitting or lying down all day! Why should we do this all the time when we do our “abs” after our workout?
Standing up while training will help you get your “functional” abs.
Especially when you start taking away one arm or one leg in our movements we really start having to activate our core!
Hit this workout up……
– 10ea. Side Bends 50#
– 20 Jack Knifes
– Max distance 1-arm Farmer’s Walk 50#
Remember if your goal is to tighten up your mid-section and get rid of that spare tire, your NUTRITION IS KEY!
You must start cleaning up your diet, start eating REAL FOODS, throw out the processed junk, and start eating those vegetables!
IF YOU REALLY WANT YOUR ABS TO BE SEEN, YOU MUST EAT PROPERLY!
BE FEARLESS AND GET FIT!
