Ab Swing – GT Fitness

Here is the Ab swing we do in the studio

 

6 pack Abs – it’s more than just a workout

back to school time: I am thinking of a class to offer here at the studio – if you like this or have any ideas let me know

6 pack Abs – it’s more than just a workout -each 50min session is broken down into nutrition education and workouts to maximize your ability to learn about the right foods to eat and burn the maximum amount of calories

Glute, thigh & Ab specific challenge starting in June

In June we will begin a new challenge – we are using lunges and oblique crunches 2 days a week to target the strength and endurance of our hips, glutes,thighs & stomach area – guidelines will be up on Facebook and I will post the link when it starts

You will be able to participate by doing the reps and posting your number on the page to be official, we will also have a board up at the studio

More details to come – follow my GT page for other fitness related content

Your Abs, my Abs, every body’s Abs

Wed is Ab day at the studio, my favorite day to train abs.

We all have abs, but some of us have too much fat covering them so they are hidden.  Reduce your body fat percentage significantly and you too will have a six-pack showing.

Check out this anatomy chart, you look like this

But not every body looks like this

Genetics plays a big factor in what you look like.  What genes we get from our parents will determine what we look like, how our muscle is shaped and what definition we can show, not every body is the same.  

These before and after pics are more like it, not everything you see in a magazine is for real!!



Any questions or comments feel free to reply.  If you need a good Ab workout just ask!!

Cola – Kinda like drinking Poison

WHAT HAPPENS TO A PERSON’S BODY WHEN THEY DRINK A COKE (injuryweightloss)

In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.

20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment)

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

>60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

>60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.

>60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.

GT Fitness Ab day 3-2-11

This a sample of the workout we did today for Abs – this workout focused on Abs  and hip flexors -meaning you will feel it tomorrow

Detox your liver with Cruciferus Vegetables

Detox and fortify your Liver with Cruciferus Vegetables (Cruciferae, New Latin for “cross-bearing” from the shape of their flowers, whose four petals resemble a cross)

By eliminating all the extra carbs, starches and sugars from your diet and eating more vegetables and specifically the “crossed” kind, you will make your body burn more stored body fat.

That’s eating with purpose, that is eating to live!!

Thank you Jesus – Thank you @tonyroseshow
