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.
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.

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.

- There is no single, perfect way to eat. In other words, there is no such thing as a "perfect diet" or a "perfect plan". If there was, we would all be eating the exact same thing and every single one of us on the planet would be looking pretty darn fantastic every single day...forever.
When I construct a program it is based on the individual.
