But without food knowledge and cooking skills..... impossible when you get to your age.

Diet is the biggie.

I'm older than you. 

When I hit 33, I looked down and saw a gut.............. Before that was ripped entire life.

Metabolism.

NOW is the time to figure out the food part.

It's worth the hassle tho.

But my advice is to take it slow and just keep getting tighter and tighter.

Fried believes in "building" while reducing but that is a controversial topic.  Some like to lean up and then build, and others like to bulk, then lean later.

Either way, it's gonna take some time to do it right.  But the diet is the biggie.

Working out is easy.

If ask me...............

I'd focus on the diet......... and that involves a shitload of making your own food.

Then pump metabolism 3 times a day.... can be quick as long as you spike the heart rate.

And noooo......... I"ve never been on a freaking eclipse for 45 minutes in my life.  That is gayer than hell........ When had to lose the 15, I just spiked my heart rate with something quick.

Jumping jacks or something.

 You cannot spot reduce, e.g. doing crunches won't specifically burn belly fat. You gather fat all over your body over time & you'll lose it from all over your body over time. Of course the place that has the most will be the last to retain it.........belly for men, behind/thighs for chicks.

 Just keep grinding.........as ricky says, outwork the other guy.......outwork yourself.........it'll happen.

NOW is the time to figure out the food part.

Kitchen is the church. It takes a lot of knowledge and effort to prepare meals that are ready to go before after training.

Any 20+ year vet in BB will tell you that.

Will open a recipe for dinners, breakfasts and lunches here soon. The food intake is what seperates you from the guy that would get laughed off of a stage in prelims.

Outwork means out cook him, out train him with strict form at high intensity on all ends.

It must be an obsession if you want walk into any gym in America and be top 10 most cut ripped proportianate guy in the place.

BB training is harcore garbage guys. Step in front of a mirror in near that guy and make decisions about dumbell weight and things start up.

Intensity, focus, etiquette.  Every top shelf body in a gym wants to kich your behind.  The fights I break up are monthly and that's a lot.

Now go get ém.

Pro athletes are pussies compared to what we do.

NJ, I wasn't laughing at a walking routine, fact walking is just as valuable as running - even better. Runner bodies look and feel broken down.

Walking and being mindful of stomach contractions during your walk is invaluable. Just my humble .02 - been doing this for a long long time and have been taught by some of the best pro BB's since Sandy Ridell.

Train that low back once a week at least @ high intensity. Do it right and you'll have a valley down the backside.

 

 


Search, difficult as hell to contract stomach while lifting/running. Still trying to get the hang of it. I WILL master this.

Just need it to be a little more clearer. i've been sucking in my stomach and contracting it while it's sucked in <-- is this what you mean? or do you just constract it without sucking in the gut? does it make any difference between the two?

I've been in shred mode for about a year and have questions for Search regarding this as well.

Fried barely lifts but does some track training and pullups/pushups.

With a very active lifestyle. 

My question to Search is...............

Is "blasting" pullups/pushups every two week enough?

Actually I think it is plenty.  When blasting, I mean shitloads to shock.  And then barely do any resistance for weeks.

 


yep, you're right i did answer my own question. Sometimes you read and research so much that you forget you already know the answer to your own question. But u guys have been mad helpful either way.

Diet (no carbs) & interval training (especially exercise bike) sheds fat off the gut.

3ball...... EVERYBODY works out but the diet is the challenge.  It's time consuming, and not geared for people not up on food.

And really have to be able to cook if want to get serious.


Yes Diet is much more challenging than working out. Anybody can work out & work out hard but diet is key for those work outs to manifest into your body (muscle gains/shred/cut up etc.)

Diet & sleep = 2 of the most important part of exercising.

I'll be 35 this year. I couldnt be that much older than you.

My knowledge on food is improving every year. I just try to eat healthy for a healthy lifestyle but now i try to gain more knowledge on foods that help my muscles grow etc. Research is the fun part but it's the preparing and cooking that's tough w/ a busy lifestyle, family and 2 kids. Something i am learning to balance. i'll get there.

This. Your diet, and activity that keeps your heart rate hella high for extended periods of time are key.

without reading through every reply in this thread there is no 'ab workout' that's going to help you shed fat from your midsection. 

A appropriate diet and cardio (along with a good weights straining program) is what will do it ... 

For me, simply manipulating carb intake has been a key as far as diet is concerned - and has helped me get my bf levels down under 10% on a few occasions .. 

You can work on slowly reducing the amount of rice, bread, potatoes etc that you consume and instead consume more green leafy vegetables & salad with your lean protein servings. 

That's the key to effective cardio as well - doing it when your carbohydrate stores are low ... that way your body will be forced to tap into its fat stores for energy - ie burn fat.  So fasted cardio first thing in the morning is very effective, as is doing it straight AFTER your weights training

Don't obsess with it, just be mindful od it. It'll eventually become a natural reaction and habit over time.
