Many dieting programs out there will never share such a secret with you.
They may not want you to know this simple trick because they fear they will lose a client, or they may not know any better.
Fortunately for you readers seeking such information, I’m going to share this insider secret for free.
Just to briefly introduce myself to this topic, I’m going to give you a quick overview of myself, and why I know this kind of information.
I’m a real customer myself and I’m lucky enough to have Mike Geary, a Professional and Certified Nutrition Specialist who is also a personal trainer to help me in my health program.
I started to seek his advice, and really got under his training program after I got bored with my beer-like belly – though I haven’t touched beer for what seems to be decades! I suppose this simple exercise might surprise you because it does NOT burn fat by itself, but the results will speak for themselves – once you manage to start flattening your stomach.
This simple – but effective – exercise is called “ab vacuums.”
According to Mike’s own professional words, he says that this “ab vacuum” exercise is a tremendous help in tightening the lazy muscles of the stomach that will be tightened through this type of physical activity. He even wrote a Physical Training Guide and goes into detail explaining exactly why this is being developed and the exact methods needed to avoid another such incident.
Through its simplicity and my own personal busy daily working life, I discovered that the best time for me is to make them when driving my daily commute to work.
Now a word of caution: Doing them while driving may not be for everyone. Make sure you remain a safe driver.
If you find that this exercise may distract your driving ability, do not attempt this exercise while driving.
After all, this exercise can be done anywhere and at any time of the day you prefer.
Exercising ab vacuums strengthens your deeper abversinis transversus muscles and thus leads to the withdrawal of “overpowering beer belly,” as I like to call it.
The main reason I chose to do them while driving is that it doesn’t matter what posture you are, you can do them while standing up or even sitting down. It also makes my daily commute boring and compulsory more rewarding as I do not lose any valuable time just driving but I also exercise on my commute.
So let’s get on with this simple procedure for this abdominal exercise.
I’ll break it down into four simple steps for you to follow:
- Step 1: Start by breathing in as much as you can.
- Step 2: Start breathing out, as you pull your stomach in as much as you can.
- Tip: Imagine you are being challenged to try to touch your spine and your belly inwards. This works wonders for me.
- Step 3: Hold this position for about 10 seconds (at first) while taking short breaths.
- Step 4: Repeat this procedure several times.
It is! You have just successfully completed the “Ab vacuum” exercise.
Words of Advice …
As with all training, start slowly and increase your intervals when you feel that the exercise is coming too easy for you.
For example, start tucking in your belly for about 10 seconds before increasing this interval to a longer period, say 15 or 20 seconds, as you get used to this simple, yet very effective exercise.
As I mentioned earlier, this exercise does not increase fat burning, just helps you flatten that bulky stomach that has lazy deep Ab muscles.
If you really want to get an intense stomach line with those “strong six-pack ‘abs,” you need further assistance in the form of a professional exercise program, definitely much more than this simple exercise.
Remember that there is no real price value in terms of your health and having a healthy and attractive appearance. You will need to do some weekly exercise and eat properly. The funny thing I’ve learned throughout my own personal experience is that you can still eat almost anything you want, as long as it’s moderate while training weekly for just a few minutes’ r day. Our bodies can maintain a good tone as long as the right exercises are done.
A typical good example would be belly overlap, where poor intelligence and logical sense would suggest that most people think they should start doing lots of sit-ups. That, unfortunately, cannot be further than the truth. Sit-ups will tighten abdominal muscles but they will still have that belly overlap, especially if it’s belly fat.
So even though your abdominal muscles would become rock-solid with lots of painful sit-ups, you still can’t see them visually!
The typical example given above is one of many more problems where having to take professional advice, either through a professional trainer or at least invest in a professional authority book on the subject, where the author is, or have had a career as a Professional Trainer and Nutritionist. This way you are not wasting your time and energy on poor training practices, which will either lead you nowhere or at best have minimal results. Take this friendly advice from my own personal experience, as I have learned it the hard way.
