Core Stability using pilates, strength and HIIT

03 Sep

 

Pilates is just one of your Ab Toning Tools

 

Dont Hold Back Your Six Pack

 

You’ve seen the ads all over the internet: lose belly fat ! get a six pack if you do this exercise! Well, guess what? Those ads are only helping spread a myth. There is NO way to get rid of fat in one area of your body. The only way to get rid of fat, and get great abs, is to lose weight all over, and tone the muscles in that entire core area. Okay now we have that sorted, lets move on.

Before you think about hitting the floor and doing an ab crunch, WHAT ARE YOU PUTTING IN YOUR MOUTH? Forget about your fast food, lose the soft drinks, chocolate, ice cream, biscuits, cakes, this list does go on. Empty calories.

Eat smarter.

Fill up on healthy nutritious food. Prepare your meals at home. How many pieces of fruit do you eat a day, even more important, how many serves of vegetables do you eat a day?

Don’t think that by cutting calories to the extreme you’ll lose  belly and sculpt your abs

To build lean muscle, you’ll need protein, and carbs.

Don’t starve yourself, or you’ll end up the flabbiest skinny chick on the block, or worse.

Don’t’ even skip breakfast!

Don’t skip any meal

Do the switch. Trade white (not so nutritious) bread for nutrient dense fibre filled yummy wholemeal, multigrain, spelt, oat, quinoa, chia seed bread. There are so many yummy varieties

Drink apple cider vinegar to help with digestion

Herbal teas

and last but not least…. Portion control

Now the exercises

For the record, doing 100 crunches a day will not give you a flat stomach.

Exercise smarter
A flat toned stomach comes  from doing a range of different exercises that target the core in different ways to help the body melt fat.  I do a combination of strength sessions and HIIT (high intensity interval training, this is my favorite) sessions. This works my whole body, core, cardiovascular and meets my resistance/strength requirements.

Strength training
Incorporating strength training into your exercise routine is definitely a key ingredient for achieving a toned tummy. Lifting weights helps the body build muscle; the more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism will be and the more fat you burn.

HIIT
Having a flat tummy also comes down to reducing your body fat percentage. HIIT  has been shown to be one of the most effective methods for shredding fat. A HIIT circuit is very simple. You take a handful of exercises and then perform each at high intensity, while keeping the rest between exercises to a minimum. The best thing about HIIT is that you can include exercises that target any body part you want. In my small group trainings and more advanced classes i like to incorporate  HIIT circuits that involve core, cardiovascular and resistance training in the one workout. By getting your heart rate up, you speed up your metabolism and help the body burn fat more effectively.

I can help you with a program today. A combination of pilates, strength, HIIT training can help you meet you core stability needs and goals, in addition you will be toning up the rest of your body too. In this video I am showing just one of the many fitness tools at JBP ( Janette Bendle Pilates) . You can call Janette on 0418923029

In 10 sessions of ugi ball pilates you will feel better.

20 sessions you look better, 30 sessions you have a completely new body.

Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.

Functional fitness and functional exercises focus on building a body capable of doing real-life activities in real-life positions, not just lifting a certain amount of weight in an idealized posture created by a gym machine.

“Conventional weight training isolates muscle groups, but it doesn’t teach the muscle groups you’re isolating to work with others.

“The key to functional exercise is integration. It’s about teaching all the muscles to work together rather than isolating them to work independently.”

These classes that I run, are pilates based functional fitness classes. You will meet a great crew of people, have fun and get fit all in a one hour session.

You will improve your core stability, your strength, your balance, your flexibility and your cardio fitness. You can join a 1 hour group class, or perhaps you would like to have me all to yourself and work with your individual needs and goals, or build your own group with your friends.

Feel muscles you never knew existed, perform exercises that challenge you mentally and physically. You will never be bored, no 2 classes are ever the same. Good prices and deals.

But the best deal is this one… Mention this ad a get your first class free.Ugi

Rise to the challenge.

I dare you.
