10-Minute Abs

10-minute abs

Can I let you in on a guilty secret? I’m always skipping out on ab stuff. Unless I sneak it into the middle of my workouts there’s no freaking way I’ll be doing it… I just always find something better to do, like run off to my next appointment, eat my lunch, watch the grass grow. So usually I try to approach abs in a similar way to a mother trying to get her child to eat veggies without it noticing what’s going on. Except in this scenario I’m the mother and the child. It’s a bit like squats, push-ups, plank, lunges… what? Noooo, no abs here Jess, you totally imagined it.

Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Let’s face it, it can be hard to fool yourself in this kind of scenario. I shouldn’t be such a baby about it though. After all, I know how good it is for me, and who doesn’t want a killer six-pack? (Or at least a two-pack, right?). And throughout the 28-Day Abs Challenge I’m really diligent! But then I fall back into back habits.

Anyway, this week I’ve decided that I will commit to a short standalone abs workout on five of the seven days. It’ll only take 10 minutes and you should do it with me!

Whaddaya ya say?

Top Training Tips from Andrew ‘Pap’ Papadopoulos’

Andrew 'Pap' Papa

Andrew ‘Pap’ Papadpoulos

Andrew ‘Pap’ Papadopoulos is the newest IsoWhey® Sports ambassador, owner and operator of BattleFit Australia and was the star of ESPN’s search4hurt Season 2.

A fortnight ago I was lucky/unlucky enough to take part in a session run by Andrew and sponsored by IsoWhey® Sports. 100% honesty, I loved every sweat-filled second of it. Andrew takes a pretty honest, no bullshit approach to training – which I love – so I wanted to find out a little more about him, his own training ethos and steal some of his tips for getting the most out of training.

I did it all for you, ladies. [Read more…]

It’s not exactly a secret that we tend to eat badly when we’re feeling tired, busy and stressed. So what should you do when that sugar craving hits and you just can’t fight it any longer? Just grab yourself a chocolate bar!

KIDDING (that would make me the worst personal trainer ever).

You whip up a smoothie of course! [Read more…]
