It’s true when they say that abs are made in the kitchen.
However, that doesn’t mean you can neglect working on your abs and expect diet alone to give you a shredded midsection. Both tasks are synonymous they go hand in hand. Often we as humans look for the quick solution for obstacles we tend to struggle with and we end up putting more stress than the situation demands. Fitness is the ultimate psychological battle. It’s a battle between the Old you vs the New you. Let’s give the new you an advantage.
This total body workout is designed to do a few things:
First, it is a high intensity workout intended to increase your heart rate and burn calories (EPOC) exercise post oxygen consumption. Second, it’s meant to work your midsection to build those abdominals that you’re working so hard to reveal in the kitchen. Third its intended to jump start your RMR (resting metabolic rate) we burn most calories while sleeping. Getting appropriate rest is key when expecting to see results from any fitness program. It is imperative to your performance, let not give the old you an unfair advantage.
