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!

PS.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event.
