It’s very hard in this busy, tech-driven world to find time for fitness. And not everyone sees the value in building a strong foundation by addressing mobility, posture and core strength needs before tackling larger goals like Olympic lifting and endurance running. But my client Julian has done things the right way. Over the years he has diligently done the work. Integrating resistance training, mobility work, massage and LOTS of data points, he has achieved his body comp goal of getting lean (hello, abs!) and his posture is on point. His running has improved. He is now safely starting to Olympic lift. As a trainer, I’m gushing over his success.
I'm always honored when media outlets like US News & World Report come to me for advice. While I tend to care more about a client’s health, mobility and performance over "getting ripped abs" there is NOTHING wrong with having aesthetic goals. And getting lean and seeing your abs pop is a common one (for me too!). So check out this article for my #1 nutritional advice for getting abs and for tips from other top fitness pros.
US News & World Report asked me and several other top fitness pros their thoughts on which muscle groups and super sets are best for various goals, particularly safety and efficiency in the gym. Check out this link for an array of exercises let you work out multiple muscle groups at the same time.
