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!

What’s your take on all if this? If you are one of the first 10 people to comment on this post we’ll do your workouts for you with a month FREE of unlimited access to our Bootcamp (valued at $205).

You get 7 sessions to choose from each week and you will also receive a welcome pack which includes:

Pretty good huh?

MONETIZE THAT SHIT NO MATTER WHAT

{AND DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY}

A One-Time Live Online Workshop with Katrina Ruth, on How to Make Money Anywhere, Anytime, With ZERO Dependance on Any One Platform, Program or Tool … Aka JUST BECAUSE THAT’S WHO YOU ARE … AND – With the Greatest of Ease

Okay. Imma gonna get straight up on your ass about what needs to be said here, because obviously SOMEBODY needs to hit the damn truth button on this shit!!

Straight up from the gate up, you do NOT make money because of Facebook.

Because of Instagram.

Because of email.

Because of ANY of this shit.

You make money because of who you are and what you decide and make NON-NEGOTIABLE, period, The End!

As you may be aware, in the last day or so Facebook and Instagram went down down down OH so far down.

After a few obligatory ‘stop the world!’ messages to my team and friends (which resulted in a serious convo with one of my soul sisters as to whether we’d now have to become porn stars instead), I got back to business.

The business of posting and selling shit on Facebook, which is admittedly a big part of what I do each day???

Nah … the business of being ME, because THAT is what I actually do each day, and also?

It’s what gets me paid.

Funnily enough, as is often the way with these things, just yesterday somebody was making smart-ass comments to me about how all the coaches would survive if there was no Facebook or Instagram.

“How would they survive?”, I asked myself.

“Well, I have no idea how THEY would survive but I sure as shit know how I would survive:

Very fucking well indeed, thank you very much, because that is who I AM”

Word to the wise:

A) I was making serious money long before I used Facebook for it.

Allow me to say it again for those in the back: YOU MAKE MONEY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE LEVEL YOU VIBRATE AT.

Vibrate?

It’s an energy thang baby, a frequency shiz niz, it’s just who you ARE and how life works for you.

Handy hint —> the level of wealth you enjoy or moan over now is already just a direct reflection of your frequency, and expectations. It ain’t got jack shit to do with what you do, and it certainly is not a product of which tools are available to you.

It is a product of YOU.

When the socials went down today it was FASCINATING to me to observe the response that came through in the in-between-y bits when people managed to post something.

People worrying about how it would impact their business, or feeling in some way handcuffed.

This is crazy! It’s fear-mongering at its worst and it’s an absolute SHITTY mentality as far as belief systems around where results come from.

Do you know what I felt, when I realised we couldn’t use Facebook as normal for our biz stuff?

EXCITEMENT.

It took a minute to click in, but I found myself getting all wriggly and lit up with excitement.

I love a damn challenge 🙂

And since I also choose to believe that everything is happening FOR me, I also took personal responsibility for this occurrence.

Obviously FB and Insta had gone down in order to force me to finally pull my finger out and learn how to go live on YouTube.

But mainly – hell YEAH to the opportunity to get creative!

Probably taking the whole thing a little bit too far, as I worked my way through some sprints on the rower post HIIT weights session, I started to imagine what would happen if Facebook was TRULY GONE AND NO LONGER OF THIS WORLD.

I got MORE excited with each second that passed (which makes me remember how damn BORED I get as soon as I know how to easily do something aka make money all day err day on Facebook), and I also found myself AUTOMATICALLY GOING INTO ZAG MODE.

Zag?

You know, like ‘When They Zig you Zag’. A classic, if ever there was one!! Thank you Dad, for always having all the BEST books on your bookshelf for me to start reading from 10 or 11 years of age!

See, I have a belief system which works rather well for me and I guess is just part of who I am –

I believe that things ALWAYS work out perfectly for me, and are always done FOR me …

I believe I am always on path …

I believe I always make the right decision, so therefore I never have to beat myself up, I just wait for the lesson –

AND

(drumroll)

I believe that my outcomes are predicated only by my choices, and that there is nothing I EVER need in order to get or maintain or ONLY improve on an existing outcome.

It’s this mindset that causes me to wonder what TF it has to do with anything when people say things like they can’t be in shape ’cause they have kids or just had a kids … or ’cause they can’t get to the gym (for example)

And it’s also this mindset that causes me to KNOW that the money I make and the impact my soul work has in the world has NOTHING to do with what tools or platforms are available to me or working.

I programmed myself a long time ago to IMMEDIATELY swerve if something was no longer serving me or working for me. It’s this part of my mind which therefore right away started coming up with creative and imaginative solutions for how business would OF COURSE carry on (and improve!) with or without social media.

And it’s also this part of my mind which of course right away finds a way to monetize the damn thing and turn it into epic and highly helpful content for you, aka this workshop!

It’s just how I think, and who I am. I am simply unavailable for NOT moving forward, and nothing will ever ever EVER make me believe that I have to depend on anything outside of me for my results.

So why a whole damn workshop on the concept?

Well, it’s more than that, isn’t it?

It’s a mindset of believing that you always get what you want.

It’s a mindset of believing that everything always works out for you.

It’s a mindset of believing that NOTHING can stop you.

That everything is working in your favour.

And?

That you can monetize ANYTHING, any time you choose, and with no ‘requirements’ in order to do so!

I don’t have to tell you that obvs the outcomes you get directly follow and reflect your mindset and your beliefs!!

Here is what else, as well:

This is not just about making money any time, from any thing, and knowing that even with challenge or things going wrong you only THRIVE and EXPAND!!

For me this goes hand in hand with duh – I get to do all of that on my terms.

By having FUN, and being in FLOW, and with ease.

In fact, the more money the more ease!! #justhowitis

That I can literally click my fingers and money shows up for me, meanwhile I’m just over here doing ma thang.

Speaking of which –

I think it’s about time I shared exactly what I currently DO all day, yeah? And how I do it / fit it all in / honour ALL the areas, PLUS manage to spend so much time sitting on my ass doing sweet FA!

In other words … !

Let’s hang out together this weekend!!

Introducing:

What We Will Be Covering!

1) How to Monetize ANY Situation, Including But Not Limited To:

* When social media or any typically depended upon platform goes down (including examples of how I have down this several times, to the tune of tens of thousands)

* Hater situations (including examples, again multiple times, again tens of thousands of dollars)

* When you make a fool of yourself / something embarrassing happens or you screw up (also examples! also lots and lots of lovely moolah)

* When people ‘screw you over’ (ahem, we will talk about this) or desert you (also examples! more money!)

* Basically how to turn any and all life situations, moods, changes of the moon, emotional ups and downs, real life SHIT, to money!

2) Why the ‘When Shit Happens’ times are often the BEST times to make money, aka this is where I teach you what it really means to understand human psychology in terms of SALES, and the mindset of being an actual IN THE FLOW entrepreneur, who ALWAYS sees opportunity and jumps straight on it

3) When NOT to Monetize (okay that one you can have for free – never!!)

4) Understanding Where Money Really Comes From – and aligning yourself TO the frequency of wealth, such that you can literally NOT.BE.IMPACTED by anything that 99.99% of people think will cost them business

5) Money Vibration Principles Revealed (… my own personal philosophies and things that I live by / instil into my being around this, including my own daily practices)

6) Coding For Success

* How to ALWAYS have an endless stream of ideas

* AUTOMATIC continual unleashment of creativity and imagination, especially in so-called times of struggle

* Seeing past problems and accessing higher self in order to always know the answer, and how to move forward

7) Programming to Upgrade – the beliefs, energetic states and emotional patterns you require in order to be this person, have all this work for you, ALWAYS see and have the ability to act on the shit that will most pay off

The ‘Do What You Want All Day’ Bit:

* Exactly how my typical day flows and how I operate for maximum efficiency of time, energy, mental acuity, soul connectedness, etc

* Getting it all done as a busy entrepreneur (and single Mum, in my case) who also refuses to operate at anything less than EXCELLENT in terms of self-care, fitness, fun, playtime, etc

* Exactly what I do all day, broken down to the detail, to helm this becoming-8-figure-empire

* Exactly what I do NOT do all day, either it just gets ignored (hint: a LOT that most online marketers think matters!), or I let other people do it for me

* Calling in soulmate support, even long before you are ready to afford it

* Optimizing energy, focus, personal power, happiness, general flow. Aka mindset and also brain / nutrition hacks and so on

* TIME MANIFESTATION. OH YES IT IS A THING.

AND, while we’re at it, we will also be talking INSTANT MANIFESTATION. The exact process I use to bring the future into the NOW, by clearing all blocks existing between its reality in the quantum and its physical manifestation in the now!!

GET IT, AT THIS PRICE! >>> https://zw144.infusionsoft.com/app/orderForms/Monetize-That-Shit-No-Matter-What

PLUS!

I’ll be doing this ‘Rapid-Fire’ Session at the end!!

1) What it really means to be magnetic online – hint: it’s not about having a pretty and polished website or online presence!

2) Bringing the ‘in private / behind the scenes’ version of you to the public

3) Unapologetic messaging and soul baring to call in your true #soultribe

4) Audience quality vs quality, and active elimination of those who don’t ‘HELL yes’ on your content

5) People don’t buy your products, they buy you. No – people don’t buy you, they buy your energy!! What that means and how to let it out

6) Being real about where you need to take care of YOU in order to be able to show up and shine fully

7) Keeping a laser-focus and tunnel-vision on your own path, and having the courage to pave the way that feels right for you even if it’s not been done before

8) Discernment to walk the line between being polarising and positively outrageous as opposed to just a hot mess 🙂 Scaling and magnetizing FROM the chaos of creativity and following the true artists way!

9) Knowing which ideas to work, what will sell, and how best to sell it so that the entire launch and selling experience is fun AND rewarding for both your audience and you

10) Creating hell yes offers that make them scream yes!

I know!

This workshop is off the HOOK already, and we haven’t even accounted for all the random shiz which will be coming out of me!!

    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. 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!

  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. Hey Adrian, great comment!

  12. 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.
