Awesome session! We'll do another one on Friday as tomorrow I am traveling due to the first ever LIVE Turbulence Training Certification in Lapeer, Michigan. It's going to be awesome. If you're a serious trainer, join us here:

And here are some great Ab Finishers for your belly fat.

You gotta see these.

The next time you are tempted to do some crunches or hop on a cardio machine, use these instead. Good ol’ Mikey Whitfield, CTT, put together three amazing circuits for us (including one on video below).

Ab Finisher #1 “Jumpin’ and Climbin’”

In the first circuit, you’ll perform 6 reps of both climbing exercises.

In the next circuit, you’ll perform 5 reps of both climbing exercises.

Continue in this fashion until you complete 1 rep of each climbing exercise.

For the jump rope, you’ll perform 20 secs every circuit.1A) Jump Rope or Jumping Jacks (20 secs) <== Every circuit

1B) Spiderman Climb (6/side… 1/side)
1C) Jump Rope or Jumping Jacks (20 secs) <== Every circuit
1D) X-Body Mountain Climber (6/side…1/side)

- Rest as little as possible between exercises and circuits. Enjoy!

Ab Finisher # 2 – Swing and Step on the 20′s

Do the following exercises like this:

1) KB/DB Swings – 6 rounds of 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest
2) Hand Step-ups – 4 rounds of 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest

No-equipment option: Replace Swings with the Total Body Extension and replace the Hand Step-ups with Hand Walk-outs.

But wait, there's one more...this time, a FREE abs finisher video. Do a workout with Mikey here:

Get abs without doing crunches or cardio.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Hardly anyone quits smoking on their first attempt. Few people stick to a diet the first time. We all try, fail, learn, and get better. Keep going. Never quit. Stay strong, keep pushing, fall down, get back up, learn lessons, adjust course, come back stronger, and you will succeed!

Stay strong,
