The Core and Abs Exercise Video Series

Ab Workout, Core Workouts Add comments


I decided to make a series of videos focusing on Core and Ab exercises due to all of the questions I receive on the subject of getting a flatter stomach or six pack. To get a flatter stomach takes work and it doesn’t come over night. If you’re serious about getting a flat stomach the first thing you need to do is eat right. A lot of people think that you have to starve yourself to do this. The answer is: No, I don’t starve I enjoy my food and drink just like everyone else. However I moderate what I eat and when I eat it. A great book that has solid principles of how to develop a good mentality, eating and exercise habits is
Tom Venuto’s  “The Body Fat Solution”.

The second part is card. Cardio burns calories pure and simple it doesn’t necessarily sculpt muscles. Cardio can be anything that gets the heart rate up and you burning calories. Some examples are running, boxing, karate and walking.  Personally I walk between five to eight miles five days a week, train in Karate, hit the heavy bag and circuit train.  The third part is Core exercises, learn the muscles that make up your Core.
The Core is made of major muscles included are the pelvic floor muscles, transversus abdominis, multifidus, internal and external obliques, rectus abdominis, erector spinae (sacrospinalis) especially the longissimus thoracis, and the diaphragm. Minor core muscles include the latissimus dorsi, gluteus maximus, and trapezius. ( Source Wikipedia ) To summarize the previous all the muscles between your neck and your hips are your core muscles. The core is the major foundation for a strong body. It is a major factor in getting and maintaining a flat stomach or the much desired six pack. Personally this is the only time in my life I have ever seen my six pack.

Core and Abs will be a series of videos that I will shoot on a continual basis.  Each video will contain between 5 to 6 exercises that you can use in your regular workout or create a routine with.

This video covers the 5 exercises that I use regularly combined within routines and within my own core workouts.

1. Around the world – Shoulder and Core
2. Straight Bicep curl – Arm and Core
3. Ab Roll Out – Abs and Core
4. Shoulder Push Press – Shoulder and Core
