Hey there Body Incredible crew! Today we are going to look at my super secret “7 Days to a Flat Stomach”.

We will touch on something you can add into your lifestyle each and everyday over the next week so that you can have a sleek defined stomach appearing very soon. These tips are guaranteed to work; the only thing you need to do is, well, do them!

Today we will look at days 1-4. Stay tuned later this week for days 5-7!

First off cab off the rank is…

flat stomach day 1: metabolism busting circuits

These will help shed the body fat over that midsection of yours so it can be shown to the world. We all know the importance of weight training and how it is an absolute must if we want to unleash a toned body to the world, but what is unknown to most is exactly where to start with your programming.

So let me make things really simple. Today you will get everything done for you; a workout that you can take into the gym and workout till you drop.

We are going to be focusing on timed circuits and control through our lifts. Each circuit will be 2 minutes per round and you will complete 4 rounds per circuit. At the end of the 4 rounds you will have a 2-minute rest before starting the next series of exercises.

Circuit 1

  • Pushups x 15
  • Inverted Body Rows x 15
  • DB Squats x 15

Circuit 2

  • DB/KB Swings x 15
  • DB shoulder Press x 10
  • V-sits x 15

Circuit 3

  • Walking Lunge x 8 each leg
  • Dips x 15
  • High Pulls x 12

If you are unsure of any of the exercises simply type them into Google and you will be able to start your training. Total workout time should last 30 minutes so there is no excuse to not be able to fit this in! Try and aim for 3 days weekly. Following this you may add in any abdominal exercises you have learned and a Tabata.

flat stomach day 2: understanding your hormones!

1. Insulin – The Silent Flat Stomach Saboteur!

Want to know some major causes of insulin spiking and the deterring factors in stopping you from getting that flat stomach?

  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Sugar cane
  • Milk
  • Fruit juice
  • White food (rice/ flour/ pasta)
  • Even most natural fruits

2. Foods That Stabilize Our Blood Sugar

Protein: Good sources of protein include fish, fowl, meat, eggs, and shellfish.  Our physiology makes use of twenty-one amino acids, eight of which are “essential.” We must get them from our food. Think about amino acids and proteins like different building blocks of our body and with these building blocks (protein/amino acids), we simply will not survive.

Fats: These little guys are the precursors to all that regulates every body function at the cellular level. This includes water retention, sodium balance, and fat metabolism. Another great reason for eating fats is that they slow the absorption of carbohydrates to balance blood sugar levels.

 

flat stomach day 3: supplements

 

Acetyl L-Carnitine: Great for fatty acid oxidation – Helping users burn unwanted body fat. Fatty acids are one the key energy sources the body uses, and oxidation is the process by which they’re broken down to create energy.

CoEnzyme Q10: With a similar structure to vitamin K, and it acts as a catalyst in various chemical reactions that leads to the production of energy – namely ATP.  Your body stores enough ATP that will sustain rigorous activity for 5 to 8 minutes, and ATP must be constantly produced. For this to happen, your body needs a good Supply of CoQ10.

Fish oils: Like a wonder supplement; they are linked to the cure of every single disease known to man. When taken in dosages of 10-grams a day or higher your metabolic rate will increase by 400 calories daily! They allow the body to burn fat in situations where fat burning is turned off, such as after a high-carb meal or after high-intensity exercise (where the body preferentially burns glycogen. High amounts of fish oils increase insulin sensitivity, as we discussed in Day 1 we want this because if your body is less sensitive to insulin then post meals it will stop you storing fat.

Glycine: One of the non-essential amino acids and is used to help create muscle tissue and convert glucose into energy. It is also essential to maintaining healthy central nervous and digestive systems, and has recently been shown to provide protection via antioxidants from some types of cancer.

flat stomach day 4: do you suffer from SYNDROME X?

Syndrome X actually refers to a cluster of related conditions and symptoms including diabetes, insulin resistance, obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, and heart disease, and relates in great part to the hormone cortisol. We touched on this slightly when we were discussing insulin resistance but this little guy (cortisol) will fluctuate your blood sugar levels more than anything.

Daily use of the following is recommended for everybody who thinks that syndrome x may be an issue for them, or even if you consider your life highly stressful.

  • B-complex vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium

Occasional use of the following supplements is recommended to help in increase you to a relaxed state or to induce sleeping.

  • Ashwagandha
  • Schisandra
  • Rhodiola
  • Valerian

How To Alleviate Cortisol

  1. Relax. Sometimes it is better to do nothing at all.
  2. Try a yoga class.
  3. Drop the carbs to decrease insulin resistance.
  4. Lift some weights, at least a few times a week.
  5. Get sound sleep, 7 hours per night is ideal.
  6. Drink water, without it your metabolism will slow to a hault.
  7. Get a massage

stay tuned for days 5-7

Whoah! There is so much useful information there that I know that you will achieve amazing results and have that flat stomach in no time.

Don’t forget to tune in later this week for days 5 through 7, in which T.J. will be discussing the adverse effects of nutrition imbalance, secret spices for fat loss and how to properly time food intake, and the best type of cardio for fat loss!

PS

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my 12 month private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.
