All I ask in return is that you take the time to fill out the simple three question survey below so that we may gather some information on how to serve YOU better. The feedback that you provide to us is invaluable, and we want to know exactly what fitness obstacles you face, and how we can better help you overcome them. Again, I cannot express my gratitude for all of your continued support enough, and I hope that you all immensely enjoy our Free Core Development Primer, which will be sent directly to your email upon receipt of the survey.
Let’s Get Real About Six Pack Abs…
One thing that has always confused me about how people choose to train their core is the amount of time they dedicate to it, which is typically the last 10 minutes of their workout!
Why would you spend a full day training strength in regards to horizontal pushing, knee dominant movements, hip dominant movements, or whatever have you, but then only devote maybe ten minutes a week to training your core?
Now one must note that the core is already being training in a variety of manners (specifically stability) if you are performing heavy front squats, deadlifts, overhead pressing, etc. But in terms of aesthetics, more work is typically needed for a serious set of shredded abs.
We must also note that abs are equally forged in the kitchen as they are the gym. But for the purposes of this post, let’s assume fat loss is not the issue (and assume bodyfat percentage is adequately low enough) and that inadequate core training is the primary problem.
What I’m proposing, is that if you truly want a stronger and more aesthetically pleasing core, then you need to devote more time to your core training, and arm yourself with the most appropriate arsenal for mass abdominal destruction (aka proper exercise selection).
So I submit that for now on, you devote an entire training training session towards core development. Start with the movements that require the most concentration and effort and work your way down towards the higher rep “burn” movements.
Here is a video where we take you through an entire one of our FVT core training sessions. What I want you to do is implement this into your routine immediately (meaning you devote one day a week to this), and continue to do so for the next three months. I promise the results will speak for themselves in terms of strength and aesthetics (again assuming your diet is in order!).
Please post any questions or comments you have below!
PS – If fat loss still is the issue, then enjoy this prescription of some new and outrageously grueling kettlebell complexes 😛
