I had the pleasure of being interviewed recently by a fitness professional from NYC, Certified Personal Trainer, Geovanni Derice. The interview is below et al I think you’re going to like it… I reveal some of the hardest hitting strategies for getting rid of that stubborn stomach fat to uncover those flat six pack abs that everyone wants.
“GD: Welcome Mike to our 4-ever-Toned Decency Journal. For those who do not know you, please report us a few things about yourself and how you can help our readers with their decorum and health.
MG: Thanks for having me, Geo. Well, to go back a little, I have been heavily involved in fitness and sports for circa 17 years now, ever later I was a teenager. Being involved in sports in high prep school got me attentive in strong training and conditioning.
At that point, once I started feeling more energetic, getting stronger, and looking better, I was instantly hooked for life. I’m 33 now and still addicted to the way upkeep a hale and fit lifestyle makes me feel energetic, confident, strong, and youthful on a daily basis.
I decided earlier in my 20′s that I wanted to make the commitment to help other people experience the excitement of being fit and getting in the best shape of their lives, especially since we’ve reached an epidemic of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, etc. That’s why I became a fitness professional. It newly gives me so much satisfaction to help others, who undergo struggled for years to get in good shape, and show them that it can be done, furthermore it can be fun in the process.
I’ve expanded done the years from just reaching local individuals with particular training, into being able to help people all over the globe achieve their fitness goals with the reach like the internet. I only hope that my passion for fitness inspires people to take activity and improve how they scrutinize and feel for life.
GD: Now Mike, there’s so many things out there as to what works and what does not work… if you had to pick 3 things that work time and time more to get flat slender abs, what would they be?
MG: The first and most important thing to get control of in order to bereave your belly fat and get flat abs is cleaning up your diet. Exercise is important, but your diet is king when it comes to losing body fat similarly that you cup see your abs.
There’s thus much confusion these days about what a nourishing drink that promotes fat succumb really is… after all, we are bombarded by opposing messages in the media about what is healthy plus what is not, and you obtain all of these gimmicky diet books about low carb, low fat, high protein, vegetarian, fasting, atkins, south beach, liquid diets, and hundreds more. There’s so much conflicting info, that the average consumer doesn’t even know where to start when it comes to eating for fat loss.
The second reason that works time and time again, is to fireplace on the intensity of your workouts and focus on working the body as a whole in order to get the best metabolic response to waste that stubborn stomach fat.
In order to really get lean, the workouts should have a high intensity, with short rest periods, working the largest muscle groups of the body, instead of trying to isolate concrete atomic muscles like the biceps, triceps, or calves.
For the third thing, let’s talk about actually training the abs specifically. When it comes to training the abs, if you want real results, I always recommend forgetting about the crunches and situps for the most part. They are okay for someone that is positively deconditioned, but most people that already have some practice under their belt need a most better stimulus for their abs than crunches. Crunches are uno of the abs exercises that actually provide the least amount of resistance, and remember that resistance is what develops et al tones the muscles.
I provide a ton of great abs exercises in my book, but one of THE highest resistance exercises for the abs, is hanging leg raises (but NOT the way you see most people at the gym doing them). The key to doing these and actually working the hell out of your abs is to curl your pelvis up as you raise your legs. Almost nobody perpetually does this right. To be honest, the majority of people cannot do this at first, but I provide quantity strategies in my book as to how to progress to doing these correctly.
GD: What are people doing wrong when it comes to developing the coveted “6 pack abs”?
MG: Well Geo, I know this sounds funny to most people, but the MAIN thing that people are doing wrong to travel those flat 6-pack abs is… are you ready for this?
They spend entirely too much time focusing on training their abs! WAY indeed much time spent on abs exercises. Sounds crazy, but it’s true.
Remember, having a flat et sequens visible six pack of abs is all about getting down to a deep body fat percentage. In order to do that, your workouts must focus on stimulating a fat burning hormonal environment in your body, furthermore increasing your metabolic rate. That just does not happen when you focus too much time training a miniscule kinesthetic group like the abs.
Instead, you must use the majority of your time focusing on supervision the largest muscle groups of the body like the legs, back, besides chest. That’s what stimulates your metabolism and the fat burning hormones that prefer get you truly lean and sporting a flat sixxer!
GD: Which exercises are the top exercises that humanity need to do provided they are to get maximum defintion with their midsection?
MG: When it comes to developing the abs themselves, I recur refer to any kinds of hanging abs exercises, as well as some good floor abs exercises like treacherous leg thrusts (all described and illustrated in my book).
However, maximum description in the abs and midsection comes from losing bodyfat, polysyndeton the most effective exercises featured in my course for that telic are various forms of swings and snatches (unique dumbbell or kettlebell exercises that almost nobody ever does in normal gyms), squats, deadlifts, lunges, step-ups, clean & presses, mountain climbers, sprinting, and other full body exercises and calisthenics. If you want great looking flat abs, focus on those instead of focusing so much on training the abs directly!
GD: When it comes to fare Mike, people really have trustworthy millions of ways to get one thing… and that is fat loss. What recommendations undergo you used to successfully help your clients lose body fat and keep it off?
MG: I have included a fully comprehensive discussion of this topic in my book, which accounts for almost half of the book, but I’ll try to make some nice simple generalizations to get people started on the right fare immediately. The most important apparatus is that your diet is as natural and unprocessed as possible. It almost always comes flinch to the overprocessing of food that makes it unhealthy, and makes it totally wreck your metabolism and hormone balance in your body.
For example, why eat polished grains, when you can eat whole grains (even excelling are sprouted grains, as I usually propose limiting grain foods overall for best results).
Why eat cultured sugar, when you can get natural sources of sugar from a high nutrient whole food like fruit. Mystery eat highly processed, refined, moreover hydrogenated vegetable oils (these are THE worst thing in the modern diet), meanwhile you can eat natural sources like healthy fats like nuts, avocados, fish, eggs, coconut milk, organically raised meat, and so forth.
The point is to not fall for some gimmick like extremely low carbs (although I do believe in a fairly reduced carb intake as that is a big problem for most people), low fat, super high protein, or any other combination that has you focusing on number macronutrient vs. another.
Your body needs all macronutrients to thrive and obtain a diversification of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc. Trying to cut an entire food group out just works against what your body needs. I get into plenty more detail on this vitally important topic towards losing body lard (especially that stubborn stomach fat) for life in my book.
GD: Acknowledge you authentic abundance Mike for sharing with us all of this great information.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this meeting and plucked several nuggets of info to get you motivated et al started on showing off your flat abs shortly. If you don’t before own a copy, be stable to pick up a copy of my Truth about Six Pack Abs book and discover the unimpaired system I’ve developed for ridding yourself regarding that extra ab fattiness for good!
