Abs Training and Harsh Nutrition Truth

Another day off from real lifting. My legs are still sore from Sunday's 10-minute squat workout, so I'll leave deadlifts until tomorrow.

I did a little bit of kettlebell and bodyweight training in the garage, with some swings, snatches, and renegade rows. Good enought times. And then an extra long dog walk with lots of snowbanks climbed.

Today's top resource is a set of 3 new abs exercises from "The New Rules of Lifting for Abs" plus 3 classic TT for abs exercises

=> 3 New Abs Exercisese 

I also have a little nutrition advice for you.

Keep nutrition simple. Follow the 7-word diet:

"Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much." - Michael Pollan

Remember...a pop tart isn't food. Use your good judgement on everything else. You KNOW what is right and wrong.

Also...the world will not end if you take the leftover cookies and chocolate and trash them. Starving children around the world will not benefit from your "not letting food go to waste". Sorry for the truth. But if you're on this blog, you're here for harsh truth fat loss advice. And the truth is that it is OK to throw out perfectly good heart-disease inducing globs of mass-produced sugar and fat. It really is.

And today's kickbutt mindset tip:

If at first you dont succeed, stop "trying"...instead, create a better plan, implement, take massive action, and get it DONE.

Wear it sweaty, with pride.

I think a lot of us have been told from an early age to finish our food if were still hungry or not. I don't fully agree with that, but with junk food it's a no brainer.

Toss the junk!. Great post.
