Abdominal Myths You Should Know

Developing a great set of six-pack abs is really quite simple once you understand my unique Firm and Flatten Your Abs system, which includes two important components:

1. A workout program consisting of carefully selected, biomechanically correct abdominal exercises, and

2. A nutrition program that optimizes fat loss and maintenance or growth of lean muscle tissue.

As simple as this sounds, I’ll be the first to admit that ab training can be an extremely confusing subject at first because there is so much conflicting information on the subject.

Opinions Are Just That! Opinions

Countless opinions, rumors, and theories about ab training are continually being circulated by an endless parade of “experts” including doctors, personal trainers, infomercial gurus, and even friends, teachers, and parents. Some information is valid, but most of it isn’t. It’s hard to sort through it all, let alone know what to believe. Abdominal mythology abounds, and some myths never seem to die.

That’s exactly why I wrote the e book Firm and Flatten Your Abs: To help you cut through the myths and lies and lead you straight to the truth that will help you develop the type of body that you’ll be proud to show off the next time you hit the beach.

Before we discuss the anatomy and physiology of the abdominal muscles or the actual training routines, the first thing to do is clear your mind of the myths, lies, and misconceptions that have been polluting your brain as a result of gym folklore, false
advertising, and bad advice from self-proclaimed experts.

More bad information is published and told about ab training than any other health and fitness subject, and I’ve boiled it down to 14 myths that are particularly damaging and pervasive. I will explain 3 of them in this article.

Let’s put them to rest permanently, shall we?

MYTH #1: If you train abs every day, you’re guaranteed a six-pack. One of the most common abdominal myths is that training your abdominals every day is the best way to get a small waistline and develop the six-pack look in your stomach. This misconception was probably funneled through the bodybuilding world, because so many bodybuilders train their abs daily prior to competitions. Despite the fact that bodybuilders appear on stage with incredibly ripped abs, their abs come from their diet, not just their daily ab
workouts.

Daily training is not only a waste of time, it’s an approach that won’t work for the average person who doesn’t use performance-enhancing substances or have a naturally high recovery capacity.

There are two reasons that daily abdominal training is unnecessary and does not guarantee you a six-pack.

First, the muscle tissue of your abs is virtually the same as the muscle tissue in the rest of your body. Abdominal muscles cannot become stronger and more developed without time to rest and recover after each workout, just like any other muscle group such as your biceps or chest. You wouldn’t do 100 barbell curls every day to “see your biceps” or 100 bench presses every day to “see your pecs,” so why do the same for your abs?

Second, even if you could achieve excellent muscular development in the abs with daily training, you won’t be able to see your abs if they’re covered with a layer of fat. Daily abdominal training does not burn the fat off your midsection! Fat is lost by creating a
calorie deficit through your diet. Build the muscle tissue with exercise; burn the fat with diet.

During the initial phase of the Firm and Flatten Your Abs program (Level 1), I recommend that you perform exercises daily for the first two to three weeks. However, these Level 1 exercises are very basic movements using only your body weight, and they are designed to prepare, strengthen, and neurologically program your body for the more advanced exercises to follow.

For the long term, you can get fantastic results training your abs every other day (about four days a week), and once they’re developed, you can maintain your abs with even less frequent training.

MYTH #2: You can eat pizza and hamburgers and still maintain a six-pack as long as you work out right after you eat them. The truth is that developing your abs is achieved through exercise, but seeing your abs is more a function your diet than any other factor. You could have a great set of abs completely covered with fat. The secret to uncovering the abdominal muscles is nutrition.

Theoretically, you could lose the fat covering your abs while eating whatever you wanted, as long as you still had a caloric deficit. However, eating calorie-dense junk food makes it much harder to maintain the caloric deficit you need to burn body fat. Furthermore, eating fast food and other nutritionally-void junk as regular daily staples in your diet will eventually exact a serious toll on your health.

You simply cannot expect exercise to cancel out poor eating habits. It takes proper exercise and nutrition to get optimal results. Go into your local fast food restaurant and look around. How many people do you see that have an envious abdominal region? Chances are, you won’t see any!

MYTH #3: Sit-ups develop the abdominal muscles best. It’s ironic, but the sit-up, which is the most popular exercise in the world for the abdominals, might be the absolute worst exercise and could even be dangerous for some people under some circumstances.

What most people don’t realize is that the sit-up is not a true abdominal exercise. During a sit-up, your main trunk flexor, the iliopsoas muscle, often does the majority of the work while the abs are not optimally recruited.

Because the iliopsoas muscle originates on the lower back, the sit-up literally pulls on the lower back with every repetition, especially if your feet are held down or anchored, or the repetitions are performed quickly in a jerky fashion. This is why too many sit-ups can lead to a strength imbalance between the iliopsoas and abdominals, as well as poor posture and lower back pain.

Some people who have very strong abs and lower backs may be able to perform conventional sit-ups more safely than others. There are also some safer and more effective ways to perform sit-ups. One is the Janda sit-up. This exercise uses the law of reciprocal inhibition, which means that if one muscle is working, its antagonist (the opposing muscle) must relax.

During a Janda sit-up, instead of holding your feet down, your partner reaches around and holds your calves. As you sit up, you contract your hamstrings and glutes by pulling your calves back against your partner’s hands. (You can also press your lower legs
back against small dumbbells or a heavy weighted barbell.) When the hamstrings and glutes contract, this shuts off the iliopsoas, making your abs do more of the work.

If I prescribe sit-ups, I simply have my clients do Janda sit-ups. However, Janda sit-ups can be difficult to perform on your own and because of the injury potential from sit-ups in general, and since there are so many other more effective exercises, I have left sit-ups out of this course completely.

It’s incredible, but true: You can develop amazing abs without ever
doing a single sit-up!

Fitness Fads Come And Go, But The Swiss Ball Is Here To Stay

By David Grisaffi
www.FlattenYourAbs.net

swiss balls What’s hot in the world of abdominal and core training today seems to change as fast as the latest clothing styles. New gurus, new infomercials, new machines – today’s fitness marketplace is all about “what’s new.” I often write reviews about the latest, greatest ab and core training gadgets, usually debunking most of them, but this time I’m actually going to do the opposite.

As new products push their way into the fitness scene, some truly legitimate, cost effective devices get pushed out, forgotten, or even worse – dismissed as “fitness fads.” Such is the case with the swiss ball (also known as a “exercise ball”, “gym ball” or “stability ball”)

Why Some Fitness Experts Condemn The Swiss Ball

Swiss balls have been around a long time in physical therapy and rehab settings and when they crossed over into the mainstream fitness world, they were probably hyped a bit too much. It’s not that they didn’t deserve the attention, its that many fitness “experts” placed the swiss ball up on a pedestal as the end-all be-all of abdominal, core and fitness training, rather than representing the ball for what it really is – a single training tool among many– just like barbells, dumbbells, cables or any other fitness equipment.

As a result, entire training systems were built around the swiss ball (neglecting other forms of training), and people misused and overused the ball. Some trainers used the ball for “exercises” that were nothing more than circus acts. I’ve seen it all – everything from standing on top of the ball and squatting to bench pressing on the ball with 400 pounds..

As a result of the over-hyping and misuse of the swiss ball, some coaches and trainers have recently spoken up and publicly renounced the ball as a ” gimmick.” This has caused a flood of emails to pour into my office as consumers and fitness enthusiasts have become more confused than ever.

It’s no wonder: Trainer A says, “The ball is the best thing since sliced bread” and trainer B says “the ball is and always was a gimmick.” I believe the ball is a very valuable training tool and that the truth is somewhere in the middle, so I’d like to help put things back into proper perspective.

Swiss balls are powerful, portable, inexpensive and versatile training tools

I use swiss balls nearly every day in my own workouts and in workouts for my clients. The versatility of the swiss ball is simply unmatched as proven by the fact that I can use a swiss ball to help a 65 year old sedentary woman overcome muscle weakness and improve balance or use the same ball to help a professional boxer build stamina and add power to his punches. I can also show you how to use the swiss ball to develop “six pack abs” as well as train literally every muscle in your entire body.

New Research Reveals That The Swiss Ball Can Make
Abdominal Exercise Up To 104% More Effective

swiss ball crunchTo give you a research-proven example of just how effective a swiss ball can be, let’s focus on one of the most basic and well-known of all abdominal exercises: The Crunch

As most people know, the crunch is a modified (partial) sit up that involves raising the head, neck and shoulder blades up off the floor. Many personal trainers believe that the crunch is highly overrated and overused. I won’t argue, as I agree there’s a lot of truth to that. However, the crunch can be greatly improved with one simple change: Do your crunches on a swiss ball.

Electromyography (EMG) studies have demonstrated that the swiss ball crunch (unstable surface) effectively recruits more muscle fibers than the floor crunch (stable surface). This leads to greater strength, stability and muscle development in your core region.

In 2000, a study by Vera-Garcia and colleagues showed a significant increase in muscle activity in the core area while performing a crunch on the swiss ball, as compared to a floor crunch. The swiss ball improved the level of muscular activity as well as the co-recruitment of spinal stabilizers. The researchers said:

“Performing the curl over the gym ball with the feet on the floor doubled activity in the rectus abdominis muscle, and activity in the external oblique muscle increased approximately fourfold.”

Although research results have been mixed in the past, the studies showing no increase in abdominal muscle activity using a swiss ball may have been due to the exercise technique used on the ball, including velocity and body placement on the ball. Earlier this year, Dr. Eric Sternlicht and colleagues at UCLA designed a study to test this hypothesis and they measured for differences in muscle activity while using different positions on the ball.

The EMG analysis confirmed their hypothesis and demonstrated that body position on the swiss ball could decrease or increase the amount of muscular activation. When the ball was positioned with the upper back high on the ball (just below scapulae), the muscular activity was less than a floor crunch. But by strategically positioning the ball so it was firmly placed at the lower lumbar region, there was a 66%, 93% and 104% increase in upper abdominal, lower abdominal and external oblique activity, respectively.

More Proof That Form Is Everything And Little Things Make A Big Difference

For years I have preached about proper form on all abdominal and core exercises and I have taught my clients “little tweaks” and “tricks” in technique that look minor, but which can lead to huge improvements in results. This new research is proof. It also reveals how the ball is a versatile tool for exercise progression: The high on back position is easier, while the ball lower on the back is more difficult, accommodating for different strength and fitness levels. Further progression can be added by using resistance (dumbbell or weight plate held on chest or at arms length from chest).

Swiss balls are only one of many training tools, but in my opinion, when used properly, they are one of the best of the bunch. I created an entire core training system that uses the ball for many of the exercises, I put all my clients on swiss balls and I highly recommend that you use the ball as well. Just remember, the swiss ball is only a tool – it’s not the “end all be all” of core training and it can’t work miracles. It will also not burn fat off your stomach – you need a caloric deficit to achieve body fat reduction.

Use the ball as one part of a balanced training program that includes other tools such as free weights, cables and your own body weight. Forget the potentially dangerous ”circus act” swiss ball stunts, use good exercise form, purchase only quality, high-strength exercise balls, use them in a clear area, clean them often, check them for leaks and I promise you will have a fantastic versatile training aid that will last you for years and never go out of style. Fitness fads will always come and go, but the swiss ball is still a winner.

Flatten Your Belly With This Exercise

In this new year many of us are after a “new look”. If it is losing belly fat exercising is paramount to success. Starting a new exercise program can be exciting. But regardless of the exercise program remember exercise is stress. By consuming proper nutrition, getting enough rest and consuming water can and does reduce the stress on your body.

You exercise routine also needs to have a flow of energy to it. If it is to intense your hormonal and nerves systems will produce stress and activate the fight or flight sympathetic nervous system and losing body-fat becomes extremely difficult.

To avoid this situation choose exercises that restore muscle balance to “the force” so to speak. These exercises have a calming affect on you. Just remember to place the most difficult exercise at the beginning of your exercise routine.

I really like one particulate exercise and it is known by many different names. World renowned bodybuilder and trainer Vince Gironda called it “Abdomoinal Vaccums”, Ian King popular strength coach from Australian calls it “Thin Tummy”. As a CHEK Institute disciple I call it Transverse Tummy Tuck. Now the word transverses is important to know. This is the word to describe the deepest muscle in the abdominal wall. If it does not work properly you have a dysfunctional core. This muscle works as your own personal weight belt by keeping your belly flat. When working correctly it not only keeps your belly flat but also improves posture, reduces back pain and increases lower abdominal tone.

As a abdominal core expert I use this exercise daily with my clients as a stepping stone to more advance ab training. It is mentally relaxing as you learn to control the mind to muscle connection.

The transverses  abdominal tummy tuck has a few variations but I’m going to present to you the basic movement to get you going. To properly perform this abdominal flattening exercise follow the directions below. You can perform this exercise up to 3 times per day for 3-4 weeks and you will see fantastic results.

The 4-Point Transversus Abdominis Tuck is an exercise for isolating the transverse abdominis, for correcting “pooch belly,” and reconnecting with the nervous system. It is particularly valuable for pre-surgery preparation and post-surgery rehabilitation. In surgical procedures such as cesarean section and hernia, the muscles, nerves, and tissues are cut, causing a loss of neurological impulse (your brain tries to call your muscles to wake them up, but the muscles don’t answer!). Lack of neural drive to the core muscles is one reason for the belly hanging out. Certain exercises can help reconnect the nervous and muscular systems so your “pooch belly” gets the message from the brain loud and clear and pulls those muscles in.

Note: Using a dowel rod can help you keep good neutral exercise posture and provide biofeedback. (As the rod touches different parts of your body, it makes you aware of your body position.) If you use the dowel technique, place the rod along your spine, making sure the back of your head, upper back, and tailbone are in contact with the rod.

Position: Get down on all fours as though you were going to crawl. Place your hands directly underneath your shoulders and your knees directly beneath your hips.

Movement:

1. Inhale and let the transverse abdominis hang out toward the floor.

2. Exhale, drawing the belly button in toward the spine. Avoid any spinal movement during this exercise such as contracting the glutes, hamstrings, or external rotators.

Perform this exercise on a 10 second hold in and 10 second release out. Repeat this combination for a total of 10 times. Or a total of 3 minutes.

Getting firm and flat abs also takes a solid nutrition plan. The quality and quantity of your food will affect how your stomach looks every bit as much as the quality and quantity of your workouts. While my Firm and flatten your abs program is not a diet book – it contains more training instruction than eating instruction, it would not be complete without a plan for what to do in the kitchen as well as the gym.In the e book I present an entire list of 15 nutrition and lifestyle do’s and don’t.

Free Gift for David Grisaffi's Readers Interested in Fat Loss

Leave a Comment, Win a Book: Free Gift for Physical Living Readers Interested in Fat Loss

A good friend of mine, Tom Venuto, has offered to give away a free copy
of his best-selling book The Body Fat Solution: Five Principles for
Burning Fat, Building Lean Muscle, Ending Emotional Eating, and
Maintaining Your Perfect Weight
at This book swept Amazon.com’s best sellers
list when it was released last year in hard cover format and has already helped
tens of thousands of people in their struggle with bodyfat. This book is very
unique because it’s not a diet or even a training book per se. It’s actually received
its greatest acclaim and positive reviews as a book about the psychological and
emotional aspects of fat loss.

One of the major theme’s in the book is that as a culture seeking a
solution for fat loss, we’ve been asking the wrong questions. We’re
accustomed to asking questions like “What nutrition or training program
should I follow?” – but this is not the most important question. The
real question that you should be asking is:

“What makes me follow my program?” And, conversely, “What makes me quit
my program so easily?”

The Body Fat Solution offers THE solution to finding those answers out
for yourself. After such great success, The Body Fat Solution was just
released in paperback, too, and Tom is willing to give a paperback copy
to one of my lucky readers. The best part is that it’s painfully simple
to enter the contest.

Here’s what you need to do in order to enter-

The Body Fat Solution, national bestseller

Ideas: Maybe you need a better education about fat loss. Or, you’ve
tried to lose weight and failed many times before. You could be an
emotional eater, struggle with your self image, or have never had the
motivation to see your goals through to the finish. Even if you’re
already in great shape, you may have a good enough reason to win this
book. Tell me about it.

(500 words or less, please. And longer comments aren’t necessarily

Even if you don’t win the prize, you can still take action today to
achieve your fat loss goals. There are mountains of literature on the
subject, including some archived articles on my blog. And with the cost
of paperback books, you can purchase a copy of The Body Fat Solution for
a very meager investment.

However, if you want something a bit more, something that will guarantee
you lose fat permanently and naturally, then listen up. If you’re
serious about fat loss, and want to put in the time to maximize your
results, and if detail-oriented hard work is right up your alley, then
you’re probably ready for the advanced techniques contained within Burn
The Fat, Feed The Muscle (BFFM)
at http://budurl.com/tomvenuto. Whereas
The Body Fat Solution is more geared towards people who struggle with
compliance to a fat loss program, BFFM is catered to a more serious type
of person who is willing to put in the work to achieve the results
they’re seeking after.

BFFM was designed to be a complete and definitive guide to nutrition for
fat loss, based on the bodybuilding / fitness / figure method of eating.
The majority of BFFM is devoted to nutrition, with ancillary chapters on
setting goals effectively, weight training, and cardio. In my opinion,
BFFM is where Tom Venuto really -spills it- and teaches everything he
knows about burning fat and building muscle. It’s the most comprehensive
resource I’ve encountered on the subject. If you’d like to learn more
about Burn The Fat Feed The Muscle system, visit the official site at
Burn The Fat , Or, you can visit Tom’s fat loss support
community at Burnthefatinnercircle, where members -burn
the fat together- using the BFFM system.

Good luck and thanks for your participation. I look forward to hearing
from you!

Exercise Aids Cognitive Function

Almost any amount of moderate physical activity in mid- or late life reduced the odds of mild cognitive impairment by 30% to 40% in an ongoing cohort study, researchers reported.Men and women derived similar benefit, which was limited to moderate exercise — not light or vigorous physical activity, investigators wrote in the January Archives of Neurology.

“Our findings contribute to the growing body of literature that indicates the potentially beneficial relationship between physical exercise and cognition,” Yonas E. Geda, MD, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and colleagues concluded. “A future population-based cohort study is needed to confirm whether physical exercise is associated with decreased risk of incident mild cognitive impairment.”

Meanwhile, a small, separate interventional study described in the same journal showed that six months of high-intensity aerobic exercise was associated with significant improvement in executive function in older women at increased risk of cognitive decline, but not in older men.

Mild cognitive impairment confers a five- to 10-fold increased risk of dementia compared with normal cognition. Observational studies have shown that physical activity may protect against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, and some evidence suggests that exercise for individuals with mild cognitive impairment offers some protection, too, the authors wrote.

Geda and colleagues continued exploration of the association between physical activity and cognitive impairment with an evaluation of the effect of physical activity in midlife, approximately the age of onset for mild cognitive impairment. Data for the study came from the Mayo Clinic Study of Aging.

The study included 1,324 participants who completed a standardized questionnaire about physical activity. Their median age was about 80, and none of the participants exhibited signs of dementia at baseline.

Investigators assessed the frequency and intensity of physical activity as reported by each participant.

  • Light exercise: bowling, leisurely walking, stretching, slow dancing, and golfing using a cart.
  • Moderate exercise: brisk walking, hiking, aerobics, strength training, swimming, tennis doubles, yoga, martial arts, weight lifting, moderate use of exercise machines, and golfing without use of a cart.
  • Vigorous exercise: jogging, backpacking, bicycling uphill, tennis singles, racquetball, skiing, and intense or extended use of exercise machines.

The neuropsychologic evaluation consisted of nine tests that assessed memory, executive function, language, and visuospatial skills. Continue reading Exercise Aids Cognitive Function

Abdominal Myth #1

There are two reasons that daily abdominal training is

Physical Vs. Emotional Eating Patterns

by David Grisaffi

Walk past a bakery and the aroma of fresh baking makes your mouth
water. Whatever your mood, this fragrance tantalizes and tempts even
the strongest of dieters and weight watchers. Today there are many
things that dictate eating patterns, the What, How and Why We Eat.

Eating patterns or What We Eat are usually decided by our geographical
location as the body requirements are different for different climatic
conditions.  How we eat comes under categories like boiled, fried,
steamed, pressure-cooked, roasted and raw. The third factor, “Why We
Eat”, has become a science in its own right.

There are many reasons for eating…right? There are those who eat
because they are hungry, there are some who eat because they like a
particular food, there are those who eat to live and then there are
people who live to eat. Whatever the case, food forms the backdrop for
all and eating patterns speaks a lot about our mental and physical
health.

Eating patterns are dictated by physical and emotional triggers. Your
physical eating patterns are dependent on your daily routine and work
timings. After a point, the body gets used to digesting food at a
particular time and if there is a change in this time then it might
lead to digestion-related problems. Continue reading Physical Vs. Emotional Eating Patterns
