Champion Core Series Level 6

Level 6!

Fitness Revolution Rowlett Ab Workout

Some seriously awesome abs

Finally we are here! Level 6, this level was built for those that have finally garnished some great abdominal control and are ready to really push the limits of… well let me be honest, to the limits of their pain tolerance. This workout is a bit painful because it built that you have some incredible control over you abdominal function and movement patterns, other words you should be able to really tell the difference between your abdominal wall working vs. your lower and upper obliques.

I will say that if you haven’t passed through at least level five and have a comfortable feelings with yoru coordination don’t do this workout just yet, trust me master the basics and you’ll get the full benefits of this routine.

This workout is just the final level of the BEGINING of true ab work. Your probably thinking “WHAT!?!?!?!? This is just the BEGINING of ab work!?”

Well yes it is. I told you that I have surprises coming for you and this is one of them. Remember this whole series was built to teach you HOW to control your abs and HOW to develop that proper mind/muscle connection (neuro-muscular control) that is needed to develop some epic abs. [Read more…]

Champion Core Series Level 5

Even though its not December, still a cool ab shot

Hard to believe that we are already at level 5! This level is for those that have really gone through and mastered the previous four levels and by this point in time you should notice that you have a significant improvement in your mind/muscle connection with your abdominal wall, remember that’s the main principle behind the previous 3 levels.

One thing that you will notice is that in this level I’ve really started to focus on the “crunch”. Reason why? I can assure you that you have a much better mind muscle connection with your upper abs than your lower and spending a few weeks taking advantage of this and start building more of a ‘pop’ to your upper abs; this can really carry over to the next and final level.

Side note: The crunch is typically initiated by the upper abdominal but if you really want to test your abdominal wall coordination start initiating the crunch with the mid to LOWER abdominal. If you can do this your feel a whole new world in your ab training! [Read more…]

Champion Core Series: Level 4

 

Level 4 is Here!

Ok, so if you’ve made it this far in your routine then you should notice that by this point in time, if you have mastered the previous three levels of training, that your abdominal development should be picking up.  Assuming that you don’t have copious amounts of insulation over them you should be able to feel the ridges in your abdominal wall and some developing in your oblique’s.

Level 4 really starts to scratch the surface of some of the advanced work that about to come! So you’ll notice that the exercises are beginning to get more difficult and a feeling of the need to “get stronger” begins to become more prevlaint

You see with the two three levels you may have noticed that the primary focus was just neural coordination or other words what is commonly known at the mind muscle connection.

Level three came around and by then you become to feel a bit of burn in your ab training due to the increased mind muscle connection but you may still have to had think pretty hard about really making the abs work.

So here are the two new exercises that make level 4 really start to stand out. [Read more…]

Champion Core Series Level 3

 

I hope that everyone is starting to pick up a few things from the ab series that we have been doing!

These routines here are based on the exact same frame work that I use to build every clients core routine so don’t take these lightly because I promise when I send out levels 5 and 6 you have wished that you have taken the time to go through these.

With Level 3 Comes some new exercises:

Champion Core Series Level 2

 

Now on to level 2!

 

I’ll keep this a bit short and sweet because the only real difference between level 1 and level 2 workouts is the addition of a bent knee leg raise.

The reason that we are going with a bent knee is that by this point in time you should be able to have a little bit more basic control over your abdominal wall and we need to turn it up a notch WITHOUT going too far outside your level of control. [Read more…]

Champion Core Series Level 1.5!?

Level 1.5!? But Travis, what happened to Level 2!?

Well slow down turbo and I’ll explain what I’m doing here. Its simple, I don’t want to overwhelm some people. I could on a jump straight to level 2 core work, which would be some starting point, but I want to make sure that you take the time to learn the basics before you try core my annihilators 😉

***Just wait till you see my annihilators, promise its some of the craziest core exercises you’ve seen***

Remember you can’t run the Olympics if you can’t run jr. high track first.

Champion Core Series Level 1

 

Wow so that last blog post was a LONG one! Iol I got a few comments about that it may have been too long… yeah yeah it was a bit nerdy but get over it 😉

So depending on where you were in your test will determine what level you need to start at in the ab workouts. I’m going to start with the 50% individuals because to be honest this is where I see most people lacking in.

As a personal trainer what a lot of gym goers don’t know is that the starting position in ab work is one of the most important things you can do. I mean we just don’t flop on the ground and do sloppy leg raises and crunches, just like you wouldn’t go pick up some heavy weight with bad form in a deadlift… starting position in both cases is EXTREAMLY important.
