April 9- Week 8 - M, W, F (3x per week)



My list of subscribers exploded to over 8,000 people in less than 9 weeks.  I can see that a lot of people are interested in achieving great abs in less time.  This is why I am dedicated to provide you with great information that you can do from home. 

I also receive hundreds of e-mails everyday asking for help and for more tips/advice.  Unfortunately, I can only respond to about a dozen e-mails per day due to my limited time.  I apologize if I cannot respond to your email.

I have been very busy for the past several weeks.  For those people who do not know who I am, I am also a personal trainer, fitness boot camp coach, and fitness expert.  This is what I do for a living.  I help people get in shape whether it is to lose weight, get six pack abs, or just to feel better about themselves. 

I created this site to help you get closer to achieving your six pack abs.

Just stayed tuned because I will have more great tips and videos coming soon. 

Arpil 9, Week 8 - M, W, F (3x per week)
Workout Routine:


RESISTANCE TRAINING

Instructions:

All exercises are done in a superset between upper body and lower body.
For example, elevated feet pushups (upper body) are supersetted with 1 legged ball squats (lower body). Do NOT rest within the superset (between the upper body and lower body), but rest 30 seconds after the lower body before repeating the superset again. Repeat for a total of 2-3 rounds total.  Proceed to the next superset. 

Aim for higher reps: 15-20 reps
Aim for 3-4 rounds for each superset (upper body to lower body)
Again, take no more than 30 seconds rest in between. 

Next week, I will reveal to you my transformation with only 8 weeks of training.

If you want to maximize your results even more, I suggest that you also incorporate my 16 week interval training with your exercise routine.   The article can be found here: http://www.iwantsixpackabs.com/my_video_tips/interval_training.html

Image Exercise
Elevated Feet Pushup
1) Lie face down on a ball with hands palm down, fingers pointing straight ahead, and aligned at the nipple line.
2) Place hands slightly wider than shoulder width
3) Start position: Extend your arms and place feet at hip width with toes positioned onto a secure bench or chair.
4) Lower your body (legs, hips, trunk, and head).
5) Return to the start position by extending at the elbows and pushing the body up.
Remember to keep the head and trunk stabilized in a neutral position by isometrically contracting the abdominal and back muscles. Never fully lock out the elbows at the start position and avoid hyperextension of the low back.

A1
1 legged ball squat
1) Place flexaball against wall approximately lower back height.
2) Start position: Lean lower back against ball and take approximately one step forward with each foot. Feet should be slightly wider than hip width apart.
3) Raise one foot off the ground. Bending at the hips and knees, lower body until thigh is parallel to the ground. DO NOT allow knee to extend past the big toe.
4) Return to start position.
5) Remember to keep back and head straight in a neutral position.
6) Watch for proper knee alignment - do not let front knee extend past big toe or deviate laterally or medially.

A2

Pushup (both feet on ball)
1) Lie face down with chest on flexaball.
2) Take your hands and walk forward allowing the flexaball to roll under your body until the top of your feet are supported by the flexaball.
3) Start position: With arms fully extended, place your hands slightly wider than shoulder width, fingers pointing straight ahead, and aligned at the nipple line.
4) Lower your body (legs, hips, trunk, and head) 4-8 inches from the floor.
5) Return to the start position by extending at the elbows and pushing the body up.

B1
Single Leg Hip Extension on Ball
1. Assume back lying position on floor. Place hands at sides with palms down on floor.
2. Start position: Place one heel on top of Flexaball with knee slightly bent.
3. Raise hips off floor by pressing one heel into ball.

3) Pull body up until bar is below chin level.
4) Return to start position.
5) Remember to keep the movement controlled with the body stable to minimize momentum and body sway. If the bar is too high, it is advisable to use a step to ensure proper hand placement as well as safety.

The Best Home Gym You Will Ever Own


Bodylastics is a complete home gym
system. We designed this system in 1996 to outperform the most popular and expensive large bulky home gyms.

Smoothest Resistance
When we were first developing the Bodylastics home gym system, we searched for the smoothest source of resistance on the planet. Well, we found it - Elastic tubing. Not only is elastic tubing super smooth when you pull and push it, but it is incredibly light and flexible. That means it is easy to store - no extra room needed! Once we decided that elastic tubing would be our resistance "engine", we had to design a system that would be able to create several levels of tension. This would enable users of all strength levels to get the best results possible. So, we created the Bodylastics Quick Clip System. Our elastics have clips secured to the ends so that they could be easily attached to handles and ankle straps. This simple yet effective design gives users the ability to generate 15 levels of tension (Basic Tension Set) or even 31 levels of tension (Max Tension set).

Best Gym Exercises and then some!
Every set of Bodylastics comes complete with extra heavy duty components (handles, ankle straps and door anchor). These components used in conjunction with the elastic tubes can recreate all of the exercises from the health club, and some others that even the best machines can't duplicate.
