Unbalanced Core Training for Summer Six Packs

6 pack, core muscles
Scott, what is the fastest way to earn a six pack?  I have been trying for years to look great with my shirt off and despite a lot of effort it is just not happening.  My girlfriend also wants to look good in a bikini for a trip to Hawaii we are taking at the end of the year.  ~ Max and Leslie

Lowering body fat levels and improving core muscle definition are the keys to excellent six pack development. However this is much easier said than done and requires the correct strategies to make it happen. We incorporate short functional training sessions to provide strategic challenges for core muscles while activating fat burning hormones with short rest periods a couple times per week. Sending powerful fat burning signals to the brain with Organic Dietary Fat and Carb Loading Days on a weekly basis drives down body fat percentage quickly!

Yes, clearly Max, the training and nutrition programs you are using are not working to your satisfaction so it is time for selective change.  Every month I hear from clients who are earning great progress and wish they had made the efforts to find better strategies for their needs.  Strategic change is inherently uncomfortable especially in the areas of nutrition and exercise, but absolutely necessary for new levels of progress.

Unbalanced Loading Activates Core Muscles

As you can see in the video I am holding a 25 pound ball on one shoulder during a lunge movement.  You can start with a five pound ball or even less as you develop the proper form.  Even a small weight load can make a big difference with core muscle engagement.  Abdominal muscles just like any other muscles must be training properly to create a beneficial response.  In this case with short sessions using unbalanced loading techniques we can improve abdominal muscle definition, increase functional strength and boost fat burning hormones.  See more functional core training videos.

Train The Six Pack Muscles as Nature Intended

Core muscles were not designed for sit ups and may other ground based exercises.  Nature intended the core muscles to coordinate during acts of everyday life like picking up items, sprinting, manual labor, sports and more.  These tasks for the most part take place while standing and the forces are never perfectly balanced as humans move in multiple planes.

Short Rest Periods

We plan for short rest periods between sets to help increase fat burning hormones while keeping training sessions short.  Each unbalanced core training session is very challenging from an aerobic standpoint which is great for improving competitive performance and stamina for everyday life challenges.

Striving for Five Every Week

My clients typically do two functional core training sessions each week that are 15 to 20 minutes in addition to three weight training sessions on separate days each week.  Striving for five well planned exercise sessions per week helps to keep fat burning hormones and metabolism elevated throughout the 7 day week provided the proper nutrition and recovery plans are implemented. Each well planned training session has a distinct impact on metabolism and fat burning hormones for the next 24 to 48 hours.

Power Fat Burning Nutrition Signals

Fat Loading Friday and Carb Loading Tuesday with organic food sources as part of the Aggressive 60 Fat Loss Nutrition System 2.0 are a powerful fat burning force.  Just like training the nutrition program must change strategically to prevent staleness.  Think of Fat Loading Friday and Carb Loading as factors similar to altering exercise selection, the number of reps, rest periods and more.  These factors are all very important.

Dietary fat loading for example with a day full of grass-fed steaks, hot dogs, burgers, sausages and more send fat burning enzymes through the roof for several days to chip away at stored fat as fuel.  Grass fed sources are absolutely crucial as their ideal ratios of fats and absence of harmful hormones have a beneficial effect on numerous factors governing body fat loss and daily energy.
