The number 1 excuse for not working out is time! Don't think you have time? I'm going to show you that you do. Stay with me on this now...you're watching your favourite 1-hour show on TV. During EVERY commercial break I want you to do this... 1. 10 jumping jacks 2. 10 squats 3. 10 push-ups 4. 10 crunches 5. REPEAT 6. Once you have done this twice and the commercials are still running then plank until the show comes back on. Do this during every commercial break. By the time your show is done you have completed a 13-14 minute workout.

Target your lower abs to finally get that 6 pack!! Ok, now that you've read the opening sentence and want to know how, I'm here to tell you to forget about it!! First, you can't really target "lower abs" Lower abs isn't even a muscle. The muscle at play (that's right, the 1 single muscle) when you see a six-pack is the rectus abdominis. You no more have a lower ab than you do a lower bicep or lower triceps muscle. When you contract your rectus abdominis, it contracts from top to bottom.

We all want to feel the burn when working out, but what about the shakes? I'm not talking about feeling dizzy from not eating enough or from coming up too fast after doing a forward bend. When your body is working really hard, either holding a challenging position or toward the end of a set, your muscles start to unintentionally quiver.

Dieting and Alcohol Where do these two fit? Quite simple - it doesn't. If you're 100% serious about your fat loss goals, the two don't mix.

Popular media would have you believe that performing a specific exercise will help you achieve flat abs. The truth is you cannot achieve spot reduction of fat utilizing one exercise. While doing crunches will strengthen your core, crunches won’t specifically target fat in your abdomen. Do not confuse the sensation of abdominal muscles working with targeting fat over those muscles.

A majority of strength training professionals have their fair share of core exercises that they would not think twice about using in an athletes program.  The core is believed to play an integral role in the body's ability to generate, transfer, and absorb external forces.  Athlete's undergo many external stressors during training and competition, and must have a strong "link" (the core), to keep the body functioning as a unit, or so we have thought. What research has shown
