Need to flatten your belly…but you have failed many times before?
If so, you’re in the right place.
Let me start by saying that I strongly recommend that you include stomach flattening exercises in your weight loss program.
If you don’t include this program, then you should include another one of your choices.
It’s not only to help you lose weight but for your OVERALL HEALTH AND WELL BEING.
This Weeks Belly Fat Grenade – Stomach Flattening Exercises
You need to stomach flattening exercises to get maximum and fast body transformation, like the ones you see in the before and after pictures of myself and of my clients on this site.
Trust me – There are No Magic Pills or Miraculous Gizmos that will ever replace stomach flattening exercises.
I’ve found – and my clients tell me the same – that it is much easier to stick to a nutrition program when you exercise.
Because you see results much faster, you will be motivated to stick to your meal plan.
And sticking to your meal plan will make you WANT TO EXERCISE.
They really do go together.
It will also give you some muscle mass, helping you feel and look younger.
Making your body firmer and toned. And this will in turn boost your metabolism, helping you burn belly fat faster.
I think you are starting to see my point: If you are not exercising, you are slowing down your progress.
I cannot EMPHASIZE enough that you should perform some form of stomach flattening exercises. Any exercise is better than nothing.
But you don’t need as much as you might think.
No More Hour After Hour at The Gym!
Many people have the wrong idea when it comes to the amount of stomach flattening exercises they need.
When I tell people that I got these results while only doing about 45 minutes of exercise – and only 3 times a week – they are shocked!
Only about 25 minutes was dedicated to multi-joint – full body stomach flattening exercises.
The truth is most people that fail at losing weight are training too much.
When I first started to exercise Less, I saw results much quicker.
The fact that I was exercising less is not the point I want to make.
My point is: I was exercising less because I was exercising smarter and more efficiently.
I used a combination of Metabolic Resistance Training and Interval Cardio training.
After about three weeks, I had to stop the cardio because (believe it or not) I was losing weight too fast.
So, I ended up sticking to resistance training as my main stomach flattening exercise.
Which only took me 25 minutes a day – 3 times a week; this fit into my busy schedule perfectly.
Now I’m not saying to stop your cardio or not to do any. I highly recommend it.
It was just too much for me when I started, and I didn’t need it back then.
After I got to a weight close to where I wanted to be, I re-started my interval cardio training to get my cardiovascular health in tip-top shape.
And I still perform them to this day, but that is the subject of my next newsletter.
The Best Stomach Flattening Exercise
Metabolic resistance training is by far the best stomach flattening exercise for anyone trying to lose weight.
Like I said earlier – It builds muscles that burn more calories and in turn boosts your metabolism.
It also gives your body that toned athletic look.
It also strengthens your joints, can increase bone density, and keeps your body in a fat-burning state long after your work is finished.
It may sound funny to some people, but the best stomach flattening exercises are not ab exercises at all.
It’s not that the exercises in the routine below target the ab muscles better than that abdominal-specific exercises.
Although they do indirectly work the abs.
But more importantly, because they are multi-joint movements, they target several large muscle groups at once.
This creates metabolic changes in your entire body, promoting fat burning long after your workout is done.
And if you burn more fat (including stomach fat), you will see your abs better.
One of the more overlooked benefits is the one that also has you looking and feeling younger.
Resistance training stimulates the release of Growth Hormone.
Growth hormones help build and repair muscle and mobilize your fat stores. It also increases your metabolism.
When you’re younger, your body naturally produces more, so you can eat more and not gain weight.
Now you might have heard that exercising in the morning will produce more growth hormones. This is Not True!
There is no scientifically proven best time to exercise – Period.

Variety Is The Key To Fat Loss
Variety is one of the keys that helped me burn belly fat, and that allows me to keep a flat stomach to this day.
You see, your body is very efficient. It only works as hard as it needs to.
If you keep doing the same workout month after month, your body will adapt, and about after the first 4-weeks, your progress will slow down significantly.
To keep your fat loss progress to a maximum, you should make changes to your workout every 4-weeks.
This will keep your body from adapting, and you’ll keep making progress.
Variety is one of the key principles behind flat belly protocol.
If you keep changing your stomach flattening exercises, your body will stay in calorie-burning mode to keep up.
The 21-day flat belly fix system is designed like the most successful weight loss programs being used today by top trainers.
Including what you see the trainers do on NBC’s hit show “The Biggest Loser”.
Now let me say this – as not to mislead you – we are NOT affiliated in any way, shape, or form with “The Biggest Loser”.
Our guide is also not about making you throw up from the intensity.
It focuses on metabolic resistance training, which builds muscles and burns more calories.
A study showed that people with more muscle had a higher resting metabolic rate.
They burned more calories when they’re at rest.
Plus, more muscles give you that sexy athletic look.
Metabolic resistance training is what helped me really break thru and make some amazing progress.
Please don’t get caught up like I thought that cardio and aerobics are a must to get a flat stomach.
They really aren’t – Think about it –
How many people do you see or talk to who go to the gym, spend hours on a treadmill, year after year, but still end up looking the same?
That was me, and it might be you too until I discovered the best stomach flattening exercise was metabolic resistance training.
Remember losing weight is a Marathon – Not A Sprint!
