Challenge this month to drop some body fat and get LEAN.
October is already amazing and going to be even more incredible!
Big changes are happening!
My challenge to you is to clear your cupboards of processed junk.
Ditch the grains, sugar and soda.
Focus on making meals from protein (chicken, fish, lean beef, egg whites), good fats (avocado, my fav-coconut oil, walnut oil) , vege’s (get some greens pumping) and enough starch to fuel activity levels.

Abs are made in the kitchen and then of course with a bit of flex-o-logy
We all dream of washboard abs yes? Cue Peter Andre. Ok maybe not quite but hey he definitely left an 8 pack impression on the 90′s scene!
As we all know by now an amazing core doesn’t start with crunches but with a full body routine, core activation, cardio and an amazing diet.
Once you have that down throw this little number in at the end of your workouts to seriously ramp up that 8 pack!
Start with a 2 minute plank for super activation. Get it burning!!
(If you cant hold 2 mins yet, keep jumping back in until you can!)
Then complete each exercise for 30 reps each and repeat sequence 3 times!
- Hanging leg raises
- SB Jack knife
- Reverse crunch + leg lower. Touch the floor with your heels each time before coming back up
- Russian twists with a plate. After each set of 10 reps bring the plate further out. Makes it super tough!!
Just thought I’d add this delightful piece of mojo
There is no such thing as discipline. There is only love. Love is the most powerful creative force in the universe. You are the result of what you love most. You either love finely etched muscular abs more than donuts or you love donuts more than wash board abs you could do your laundry on. It is as simple as that. Don’t beat yourself up that you have no discipline or further drown yourself in a sea of refined carbs. Admit that you like crappy food more than you love strength. Or ask yourself this, what do you really love? Self-esteem is the reflection of self-judgment. One of the best ways to raise self-esteem is to make truly loving choices that lead to increased strength of body and mind. For example, if you truly love yourself in the gym, you choose the full squat with chains over the leg extension machine. At the restaurant, if you truly love yourself, you pass on the heavenly smelling basket of bread and creamy butter, and ask for some more limes for the water.
Limes alkalize your body which in turn helps your bones, muscles and your ability to deal with stress.
When you are faced with difficult choices, ask yourself, in context of course, what would a loving expert recommend? For example, when working chest, would a loving strength coach recommend the pec deck, or full range dumbbell presses. When choosing desserts, would the loving nutritionist recommend a bowl of berries or the triple decker brownie submerged under melting vanilla ice cream.
