For many, the methods don’t matter as much as the result:
We want to look good!
We do train abs in our sessions, but we don’t do many sit-ups. Abs are built through compound stability of the trunk (core), and they’re revealed through diet. Sit-ups don’t give you good abs, and they won’t really make you stronger. So we don’t do them that often. We’re more concerned with “midline stability”: can your trunk stay where it’s supposed to stay as you move under load? Can the musculature around your midsection protect your spine? Can you bend, twist, lean and rotate well?
As you train with us, your core is going to get stronger and stronger even if you don’t do many sit-ups!
Next question: If my abs are so strong, why can’t I see the six pack?
That has more to do with what you are eating. Quality and quantity.
When leaning out or weight loss is the goal, we recommend trying a 2 week experiment without sugar or processed foods.
Try eating just protein (eggs, chicken, beef, etc…), veggies, and good fast (olive oil, avocado, grassfed butter…)
You would certainly lean out after 2 weeks, then you could slowly titrate the carbs back in to see how your body tolerates them.
Sample Breakfast:1-2 eggs cooked in grassfed butter with sauteed spinach
Sample Lunch: Huge salad with tons of veggies, grilled chicken breast and 1/2 avocado. Lemon and olive oil for dressing.
Sample Dinner: Steak with steamed broccoli and squash drizzled in butter.
Drink lots of water and let me know how your two weeks goes!
