Anthony to the S.

what's your opinion on robert dos remedios' men's health power training?


I'm interested in your thoughts about fasting. Not a seriously extended fast, but a one day fast, or once or twice a month. It kind of goes against the science you've presented here, but often health professonals will reccomend a fast once in a while.

What are your thoughts?

Hi Liam!

I've had friends who are nutritionists who believed strongly in fasting once in a while.

That being said, I know nothing about fasting. Not many of my clients have fasted, and I myself have never fasted.

So, I have no experience with fasting to speak from.

I make a point not to speak about things I don't know about. Sorry I can't help.


If you want to discover 3 flat belly exercises which can shape your abdominal muscles and additional body regions simultaneously, then you've found the right article. Because among the most effective ways to form the abdominal muscles is to perform resistance training of separate body parts with workouts which work on the abdomen indirectly.

What do I mean by working the stomach indirectly? With each exercise, you have the primary muscles and you have supporting muscles. E.g., when you do press-ups, you are more often than not working your pectoral muscle, yet your shoulder muscles and triceps act as supporting muscles and also get pumped up. The stomach acts as a supporting muscle for numerous exercises. Doing these exercises means that you are flattening out your stomach simultaneously whilst you're working other body parts. And it is frequently more efficient than doing conventional stomach exercises.

Here are 3 workouts for a flat stomach which I recommend you start doing now:

1. Pull ups - the pull up is a solid exercise. It generally works the back muscles, except whenever possible get a friend to place his or her hand on your abdominals while you are doing it, they will tell you that it is solid as steel. That's because the abs are tensing like mad. Even doing 5 pull ups is more of an effective method than ,for example, a stomach exercise routine of 50 sit ups .

2. Push ups - whilst you're doing push ups you must make certain that your stomach is tucked in. That way, your abdominals are working hard every throughout the push ups. Regardless of the type of push up that you try: horizontal, elevated, or counter elevated, the abdomen is still shaping. Push ups work your total upper body and they are a major exercise to flatten out your stomach.

3. Pull down - this is executed by pulling down the pulley cable and is actually an easier variation of the pull up (yes I realize it sounds strange but they do similar things). Whilst you pull the cable down from above your head down to your waist, you upper body goes through a whole extension which means that your abdomen muscles are tensing. Once again, the abdomen acts as the supporting role, However it does not mean that it is not straining.

Practise these 3 flat belly exercises and you'll witness results throughout your upper body, not just your abs.

Ultimately, and if you've read the facts over at my website, you'll

understand that although these exercises might do some good for getting a flat stomach and possible six pack abs, there is no way that you'll get to that point with these exercises alone, and the good news is that it's not all about doing more exercises! It's ultimately about doing things smarter, not always harder...

You can shave years off your hard work by knowing the secrets to fast six pack abs. Because ab belts, ab-rockers, ab-loungers, and other infomercial ab-gimmicks... they're all a complete waste of your time and money. Visit http://www.secretsixpackabs.com/truthaboutabs to see how...

I like it that you didn't perpetuate the myth that building muscle is the way to get lean, because "muscle burns more calories than fat". This is too, but vastly exaggerated. Good atricle!

This is some good information for those having trouble gaining weight and build muscle mass. I would also like to add the importance of breathing squats, which are pretty much the closest thing to a miracle exercise for hardgainers. I have seen literally dozens of people (myself included) gain up to 30 pounds of muscle in as short as two months with just breathing squats and a few other exercises alone http://www.hardgainers-weight-tips.com


Good post. The medical and pharmaceutical industry doesn't teach us stuff like this. They make too much money off of keeping us fat and sick. I think the whole medical/big pharma complex should be scrapped and instead we should hire people like Tom to keep us FIT and HEALTHY instead of medicating ourselves to death.


That's a pretty helpful article. I think that pills are definitely not the way to maintain fitness. Personal discipline and the "just one" concept is the way to improve diet discipline. That is the concept which says you can eat just one of anything! :)
