Look at the huge volume of muscle fiber in the deep core - you're not activating these fast-twitch fibers at all

The fast-twitch deep core muscle fibers you’re missing

Can you do this?

Going from a kneeling to a squatting position in the air with no hands requires an explosive fast-twitch deep core contraction - muscle fibers that most workouts miss

If you're working out at a gym or with a trainer, you are most likely doing a low variety repetition of routine linear, mid-range movements that were designed to bulk-up a specific bundle of muscle fibers while stabilizing the rest of your body - and it's boring, right?

Deconstructing movement

When you think core exercises, you think repetitive, boring, crunches, right?  Well stop wasting your time and look in the mirror - are your crunches giving you the results you want?  I didn't think so.

The reason is that conventional models of fitness training deconstruct human movement into tiny one-dimensional slices, reducing the breathtaking complexity and broad range of movement our bodies are capable of to a narrow type of 'exercise' that can be mechanized and marketed. This not only makes exercise boring, repetitive, and counterproductive to results, it also discourages you from finding and pushing your own limits and forces you to accept the limitations others place on you.

Take a look around... and in the mirror

Look around.  Is the average gym member lean, sculpted, agile, strong, defined, and toned?  Would you be happy with the results of the average person pumping away endless reps on the machines at the gym?  Are you happy with the results you see in the mirror?

If the answer is NO - it's probably because no one ever taught you how to push your own limits, and how to laser-focus every second of every workout on results.​

Why does it matter?  one word - metabolism

Most people shy away from multi-dimensional, curvilinear movement challenges in the thin zone at the edge of their capabilities.  Don't be one of those people!

THE game-changer is dynamic holistic movement patterns that constantly present new physical, technical, and cerebral challenges with ever-changing alignments, loads, variations, and micro-adaptations.

Burning fat while you sleep

Your core workouts focus only on the surface fibers - but that's a small percentage of the muscle fiber in your core.  There's a much greater volume of muscle in the deep core.  This is important because muscle is the machine that burns fat.  The more muscle fiber you activate and stimulate with different alignments, loads, and movement patterns, the more fat you burn both during your workout and even during the time you're not working out - this is known as NEAT - non exercise activity thermogenesis.

Most core workouts focus only on the thin layer of surface muscle and shut down the deep core - but the deep core is where all the fat-burning action is

Where the money is

If you want results you've got to go where the money is - focus all your effort and every second of your workout time on optimizing the fat-burn.  In this case all the fat-burning action is in the deep core.

So you get a double bonus for stimulating the maximum number of muscle fibers during your workout - you actually burn more calories after your workout and for the rest of the day, every day - even while you sleep!

Don't back away in fear from your limits

No one has taught you this move because they assume it's beyond your capabilities.  Conventional fitness training teaches you to back away in fear from your limits and never push into that thin zone at the edge of your capabilities.  So the reason you're not seeing the results you love in the mirror and in selfies is that you've accepted the limitations others have placed on you.

Bored with core crunches?  That ends today

Stop wasting your first 13 reps on boring, repetitive, closed-chain, linear isolation moves that are too easy, and not even feeling the burn until rep 14 or 15.  Why not start making every second of every workout count where it matters - well-defined abdominal muscle lines you can see in the mirror and in selfies?

Stabilization is killing your results - let's fix it

Here's the problem: you strap yourself into a chair with handles, armrests, pedals and leg rests, or you rest your back tailbone, and legs on the ground, stabilizing and shutting down as much of your body as possible.  Stabilization is killing your results.  Do you see those sharp, cut, defined abdominal lines in the mirror and in selfies?  I'm guessing the answer is NO - let's fix that.

Suspending your body weight

See the crunch lines in the image below?  The reason you see those muscle definition lines is that in this maneuver the entire bodyweight is suspended in the air by an intense activation of all the core muscles, deep and superficial.  There is absolutely no external stabilization to rely upon.

No chair, straps, armrests, handles, leg rests or pedals.  No anchoring body parts like your feet, tailbone, back or shoulders.  How long you can suspend your body weight in the air depends entirely on your core muscles, so they have to stay activated and engaged - which in turn fires up your metabolism.

The dynamic snap maneuver

This is a mid-air move, a dynamic snap of your thighs, powerfully activating your deep core hip flexors.  Since this move must be executed with the entire core activated isometrically to suspend the body in mid-air, it is one of the more powerful moves you can execute to define your lower abdomnal muscles.

Learning to push your own limits

The most astonishing gains are made within the thin zone at the edge of our capabilities, when we are challenged not only physically, but also technically and mentally.

I incorporate at least one challenge move that is beyond the threshold of my abilities into my interval training every day. That forces me to acknowledge and confront my limits and make an effort to push beyond them every day. It is also a powerful way to focus the mind.

How high can you propel your upper body in the air?  How quickly can you snap your hips?  

Start seeing the only results that really matter - the ones you love to see in the mirror

The movements involved activate the entire range of muscle fibers in multiple dimensions, linear and curvilinear, over their entire length, so the results in muscle definition will be quick and dramatic compared to the standard crunches and squats you're wasting your time and energy with now.​

Looking Great Naked isn't Magic ... It's Science

These moves are designed to maintain an intense isometric contraction of the entire core while you are in the air, so you will always feel the burn, and all of your time and effort will be laser-focused on results - those sharp, cut, abdominal lines you want to see in the mirror.  Once you feel that intense burn with every millimeter you progress and you start seeing the results in the mirror, standard crunches will start seeming like the boring, useless waste of time that they are.

Face it - if you can't dance naked in front of a mirror and love what you see from every angle then your workouts are a waste of time.  Stop wasting time and energy and start seeing results - learn how to make every move and every second of every workout count.
