After doing MyBodyTutor for 120 days my diet has completely changed in a way I’m very satisfied with. However my six pack has been slowly fading away…meaning I CAN still easily see it, but it’s not quite as defined as when I was doing MBT.
My body fat is still pretty low, so that’s not the problem. Sadly, I know exactly where I’ve slipped….I stopped doing the ab exercises Adam made for me.
Nisch Nisch. If I’m doing 98% of the work to stay fit, why not do that extra 2% to be REALLY fit??
I’ve been doing Bikram Yoga one day, then biking the next….and somehow stopped doing the ab exercises (which honestly take very little time).
The issue is clearly I haven’t been pushing those muscles to grow (they looked so much better when they were being exercised regularly).
The solution is clearly to start doing them again!
In case you need a refresher:
Bicycle Situps: 3 sets of 20
Knee Bends: 3 sets of 20
Foot Reaches: 3 sets of 20
Checkout the six-pack exercises for more info.
Adam (founder of MyBodyTutor) emailed me shortly after this post:
Instead of setting a daunting goal of doing them every day – which is over-training anyway – aim for 2-3 x per week. If you trained your abs 2-3 per week for 15 minutes a shot, it’ll be all you need.
