Personal Trainer Tips For a Flatter Stomach

Flat Abs Tip #1: Perform strength training and stability based abdominal routines at least three times each week either on your own or with a personal trainer. Your abs are like any other muscle in your body-they need to be consistently challenged in order to become stronger and better looking.

Flat Abs Tip #2: Stop eating processed food. Processed foods, refined sugar and flour based products don’t belong in your diet if you want lean abs. Removing these items from your daily routine will allow your body to maintain stable blood sugar levels, reduce insulin levels and speed up fat loss.

The fat stored by excess sugar intake (insulin) primarily lands around your waist, covering your abs and making you look fat. Cut these items from your diet and replace them with whole foods such as lean meats, vegetables, nuts and fruits. Consult with your personal trainer about meal plans to suit your own specific needs.

Flat Abs Tip #3: If your trainer has you doing long and slow cardio workouts. He is doing you no justice. Instead, use HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) instead of your cardio workouts. HIIT consists of intense bursts of cardio and short periods of recovery. This will turn up your metabolism and ignite fat loss.

Flat Abs Tip #4: Crunches are useless and bad for your back. Ask your trainer about serratus crunches and half get ups. These will force your abs to work harder, and will achieve better results.

Flat Abs Tip #5: Don’t be fooled. The market is flooded with ‘lose weight’ products and products that claim to flatten your stomach. Never waste your time or money on packaged health food that comes with claims of weight loss. If it’s processed and in a packet, then its probably bad for you.

Gimmicks on infomercials will claim to make personal training obsolete but these abdominal exercise machines are merely gimmicks – all you really need is your own body weight, maybe an exercise ball and dumbbells or a medicine ball.

Flat Abs tip #6: Challenge your core often by doing planks and stability exercises. If your personal trainer does not do any stabilisation exercises with you I think you are wasting your money. Don’t limit your abdominal exercise to the gym, incorporate core strengthening during daily life and throughout each workout. A strong core is the foundation for flat, tight abs.

There you have it! Seven tips that your personal trainer should be using with you and when diligently applied, will help you shed the fat and tighten your abs.

But, keep in mind that your results will be seriously hindered if you do the same exercise routine over and over. Contact a personal trainer now in order to give your abs a progressive challenge in order to transform.

Personal Trainer Dublin – What To Look for In a Personal Trainer

If your goal is weight loss, muscle building or even general health, hiring a personal trainer can be a step in the right direction for you.

A good personal trainer can help you set up a program that meets your goals and teach you how to implement it successfully. Finding and choosing a trainer can be a little confusing and, for some people it can even be intimidating.

Its understandable, you are taking a step outside your comfort zone and entering a new lifestyle!

We all know it’s not easy asking for help, but going in for the initial consultation with a little more knowledge about how personal training works can make it a little easier.

What Personal Trainer should you pick?

The first thing people look for is the trainers ‘qualifications’.

Sure, the trainer should have a basic qualification and be educated in anatomy, programming and have an excellent grasp of nutrition but most of all the trainer needs EXPERIENCE and he/she needs to be surrounded by other experienced trainers.

The trainer also needs a PROVEN TRAINING SYSTEM.

If your trainer is ‘winging it’ then you have a problem.

Personal training is not just a job and we don’t just go through the motions. Trainers need to diagnose problems and provide the cure in every session.

If your technique isn’t right?

If your fat loss has slowed?

If the scales hasn’t shifted?

We need to diagnose the problem and provide a solution.

A personal trainer needs to provide you with:


-Guidance on reaching your goals

-Education about strength training, fat loss and nutrition

-A reason to show up at the gym each week

-Accountability

-An assessment your progress

What is a Personal Training Session Like In The ABS Gym?

Each session usually lasts about an hour. The first meeting is devoted to assessments. Body measurements, training history and goals.

After that, you’ll spend each session doing a 5-10 specialized warm up and then you will carry out your training programme that will be tailored to meet your specific goals.

Personality is important too since you’ll be working very closely with this person. Make sure you get along with your trainer and feel comfortable asking questions.
