How NOT To Get Abs!

"How To Get Abs"You may remember that a week or two back I introduced Lana and Larissa from Assassin PT. Today the girls are back to bust some serious myths on getting your abs ready for summer – and with a very VERY amazing freebie for you to kick off your beach-body plan this year …

Today’s post is all about what NOT to do if you want to finally get those abs on show – I know you’re going to want to read this 🙂

what you need to know if you want to get abs!

1. DON’T REFUEL ON CRAP

After a big workout session are you quenching your thirst and hunger with a sports drink and a protein bar or cookie?

These are packed full of artificial sweeteners, sugar and soy – the last thing you want for the six pack you just smashed yourself for! In fact soy can even promote fat stores in the belly!

Have a chunk of good quality MEAT or a good clean protein shake to get some protein into your system stat!

2. DON’T DO A ‘ROUTINE’

Running on the treadmill for way too long and getting stuck in a rut with the same routine will have benefit for only a short amount of time.

Turn up the intensity with some intervals and mix things up a bit! Changing rep range, weight and TIME YOUR REST. You will be surprised how quick 45 sec zooms past!. It will do wonders for your results. Remember to tense your abdominal muscles with each rep – you don’t always need to do specific ab exercise like crunches to train your abs! The human body is amazing at how fast it adapts to routine. Keep it guessing!

3. DON’T OVERTRAIN

Are you smashing your muscles with intense sessions 7 days a week and still no results?

Sounds like you need to help your body recover with supplementation and throw in a rest day or two.

If you want to lose weight, training 7 days a week will hinder the speed of your results – more is not better in this circumstance. Even if you’re not over-training, just by working hard you will deplete certain ‘flat abs nutrients’.

Refuel with good foods and supplements to help the recovery process and to finally lose weight around your belly. Our favourites are BCAA’s, Glutamine, good quality protein powder (grab it on sale till Oct 2!) and Fish Oils. Your body will love you for it.

4. DON’T FORGET FAT

Scared of fats? You don’t need to eliminate all fats to get the ABS you want, you just need to know the right types.

Fish, avocado, nuts (just not peanuts), eggs, coconut cream/milk, extra virgin olive oil and all good sources of fats that aid in fat loss.

We need fats for healthy cell formation, so eat it!

5. DON’T VALIDATE EATING CRAP

Kill yourself in the gym and that validates having a snickers as you wait for the tram home, right? Wrong. The reality is that even hours in the gym can’t counteract a days worth of the wrong food.

Try having some nuts on your way home and fuel up on a piece of fish with veggies. This will help recovery and get you a step closer to a toned body and a ripped mid-section.

Remember, you are trying to CHANGE THE BALANCE, not keep the balance between exercise to food!

free ‘get abs’ workouts for a month? what the?!

So. With all of that in mind let’s go smash an AWESOME intense and varied workout then back it up with the RIGHT food and supplements for fast results. After all, summer is almost here!

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my 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.

  3. Angela says:

    This is good sound common sense advice. The hard part for me is I cant do anything regularly as I move around a lot. Am trying to get myself a good workout set that I can do with free weights ( dumbells) anywhere I am, that will give me maximum benifit. I am 51 so it is important to stay fit and healthy.

    1. Larissa Watt says:

      Thanks Angela! Don’t worry about being on the move all of the time as there are loads of things you can do with just your body weight! And sprinkle that with some of your dumbells and you have a wicked workout no matter where you are!
      So come join us tomorrow at the Tan for some great workouts that you can do anywhere, 9.30 am.

  11. Adrian Morgan says:

    Great write up of practical real life tips.

    The number of people I see at the gym that have been going for years and complaining about not getting slimmer is incredible. And all because they don’t bother what they do in the other 23 hours a day!

    The only things I would add are – remember – drinks count as calories too and don’t forget to sleep!

    1. Assassin PT says:

      Hey Adrian, great comment!

    Seems these days quite a lot of people are obsessed with getting six pack abs! What I have come to understand is that 6 pack abs are largely dependent on your food plan, everybody has six pack abs its the layer of body fat that prevents them from being revealed. I follow these simple guidelines for getting abs and they seem to work well. On exercise days I knock back a little glass of apple cider vinegar when i first wake up, then I proceed with my routine basically on an empty stomach, this forces the body to burn body fat. My workouts are short thirty minutes max, but within a few weeks you will start seeing genuine results in the mirror. Doing this really gives the metabolism a significant boost for the day and you will really burn a lot of fat particularly if you have frequent meals throughtout the day as well.
