Stop Not Seeing Results Working Out In The Gym

Did you know that after 10 years of seriously working out in the gym, I have found the one word that will change everything for you.

Most of these are important and some can be illegal, but it’s not any of these listed;

  • Diet
  • CrossFit
  • Steroids
  • Cardio
  • Starving
  • Supplements
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals

It is NONE of the above, but it is one word and if you do it correctly, you will see a 180 degree turn in results quickly.

Yet most people fuck this one tip up in the gym while working out daily.

4 time Mr. Olympia Phil Heath does it correctly. And he is the biggest, most successful bodybuilder on the planet. But why don’t people follow his lead?

I see it all the time, people make this mistake and the way to fix it is to not just read this, but learn how to do it.


Form is the key to your success with your body.

That doesn’t mean to just try to slow up your workouts or do it textbook.

It means that you need to do each exercise differently, and the goal is to focus the exercise on the muscle you are trying to hit with your mind.

When you do chest presses, are you REALLYYYYY doing your chest? Or are you pushing it with alot of shoulderss,back,triceps,and grip strength?

Next time you do your workout, try to connect your mind to the exercise and feel it in that muscle. Do a few reps different ways until you feel it in that muscle working the most, then repeat that rep until you exhaust. Pick a weight that allows you to get 10 reps or maybe even 11 max for 3-5 sets.

You may need to reduce the weight you use to get to that ideal form, it doesn’t matter, all that matters is that you use the most weight that you can handle in the correct form.

Reps don’t mean to repeat what is wrong over and over like so many do.

The warm up is to find your target form, and then any repetitions you do correctly is really a rep. A rep that will lead you to quick success that is. Or you can keep doing the same thing that doesn’t work, but this is here to help you.

Try it and use it, it is one of the best things I have ever done since I started working out. My legs are built better than before and I don’t even squat or deadlift anymore. I know how to use the leg press machine and lunges in the right form now and I kill my workouts with less weight but way better form.

Give it a shot, it works 100% if you make it a priority to find the right form for yourself.

Oblique Routine To Compliment Toned Abs and Core

Read on below for an oblique routine sure to compliment your core and help to show abs much easier.

What do obliques do exactly and how do you work them?

Your oblique muscles are found on the sides of your abs so to speak, they are responsible for many core functions and should be treated as importantly as abs to make a toned core maximized for results.

If you use an effective oblique routine once or twice a week, you will notice results soon as you start to burn some fat on the sides of your core complimenting your abs and chest alot.  By the way, this is suited for both sexes as it really looks good when done effectively.

Oblique Routine For a Toned Core:

  • Lay on the floor as if you were sleeping on your side with your knees bent in bed. You will put your hand on the top of your head to give you a bit of an assist on raising your head up to your side. It may take a bit to get the motion and form down, as it is a very short motion but will target your obliques nonetheless very effectively. Aim to do 4 sets of 15 for each side.
  • If you have a medicine ball or even something that is a light weight, stand up straight and hold the weight straight out to the side of you and above you a bit. Then you will bend to the side as a crunch. Do a few of them first to  get the feeling in your oblique muscle before you continue. It is a crunch basically like you are just bending from your upper body only to the side a bit. You should feel it if done right. Do 3 sets of 20 reps for each side.
  • Another variation of this is to hold two dumbbells that are light weight, while you are seated on a bench or chair. Hold them naturally to your sides, while facing straight, let one dumbbell drop lower to your side so that you are bending at your waist line and crunching your oblique. Do each side for 20 reps and 3 sets as well. It shouldn’t be about alot of weight, make sure your form is right on and improve slowly from there.
  • Finally, you can add in core rotations to finish it off. Some gyms have these machines, or you can do it just standing up. Stand up with feet about shoulder width apart. Put your arms up in the air like you wear to do a pull up with the air, and turn your body in place slowly as far as you can, back to center, then repeating to the other side. Do 15 reps for 3 sets slowly.

Adding this oblique routine into your workout plans once or twice a week will give your abs and chest a more toned and complete look. It really sets of your body from the front, back, and sides and automatically makes you look very fit if you have oblique muscles showing.

It doesn’t take alot of weight or much to do it besides consistently adding these into your weekly workout plans. Along with eating clean and a solid workout program and cardio sessions, you will start to see toned oblique muscles on the sides much faster than not working them much except when they are involved in other exercises as a sub muscle group.

Why Your Ab Workouts Aren’t Working As Good As You Thought

Sometimes when I am doing my ab workouts, I notice other people working hard at a goal but from seeing them consistently, they never seem to be making much changes. Besides genetics, which is about 10% of the pie, what are they doing wrong here?

As a professional fitness model, I don’t have a choice for my ab workouts to work or not, they have to work! And they always have because of the way I look at it, from experience, research, and trial and error.

You don’t have to do all that time I did, just read on now to view your ab workouts differently if what you are doing now doesn’t seem to work a whole lot.

Why Your Ab Workouts Aren’t Working  And How To Change It Now;

  • The actual ab workouts aren’t nearly as important as you think. Yeah, doing 3 sets of 20 crunches, leg raises, and exercise ball sit ups a few times a week will make your abs look more pronounced and engraved in you, no doubt.
  • But at that point, it’s all bonus. You already have done it right. What is the most important things to do to get to that point where the actual ab workouts are house money or bonus?
  • Step number one is you must set an environment for your ab workouts to do anything. I’m not into drugs or weed, but I know alot of people smoke it in the country. If someone was growing weed, do they just grow it randomly and hope for the best? Or do they set the perfect environment for it to work? Yep. They do all kinds of crazy stuff to allow it to grow properly. Like state of the art facilities are rigged up because they know what maximizes the results of growing their stuff. This is just an extreme example, but you get the idea. Setting the stage to let your ab workouts flourish is first done by drinking 1 gallon of water a day. This is absolutely huge. Eight 8 ounce glasses of water isn’t enough for fitness goals. For survival, sure. But you need a gallon daily to detox you, deliver nutrients right, and to give your body the proper environment to improve and see results.
  • Adding a few drops of green tea extract to the gallon will even be more effective because of the antioxidants and metabolism boosting properties in green tea extract.
  • Step 2 is to reduce anything that prevents your abs from wanting to show. Reduce sugar, carbs, and starch intake while trying to show your abs. If you eat carbs, stick to what works for a few weeks like brown rice, oatmeal, and sweet potatoes to maximize. The only time sugar is good to have is directly after weight training, try Amino Fuel liquid which gives you the perfect amount of protein, sugar, carbs, and amino acids to supercharge results. Drink 3 tablespoons or a mouthful after every workout. I don’t sell that stuff so you have to look it up. Or email me and I’ll help you find it for yourself. it’s easier than finding a meal after workouts.
  • Now that you did Step 1 to set the stage, and Step 2 to prevent messing up the stage with bad foods, now you can begin showing your abs faster with cardio. Walk at a faster pace 1 hour a day until your abs are showing greatly.
  • If you are doing these, now your ab workouts will come into play and work like magic. You can do abs 2-4 times a week now for 3 exercises of 3 sets of 20 and get rapid results. Why?
  • Because the right preparation is done to set the stage for results.
  • Try it, I promise it works fast if followed right. Try it for 7 straight days. You will see and feel that the changes are definitely coming.
