Could this be the recipe for deflating the muffin top? A recent study compared three groups—those who ate a reduced-carbohydrate diet, those who combined the diet with strength training and those who combined the diet and strength-training with cardio workouts—and found that a three-tier approach was the most effective strategy to decrease abdominal fat. It's important to note that the exercises you choose and the effort you put into them really matter, says Marta Montenegro, a certified strength and conditioning coach who teaches exercise physiology at Florida International University. Instead of ho-hum treadmill-trotting and sit-ups, she recommends high-intensity workouts, which have been shown to be more effective at reducing the belly fat you can pinch with your hand, as well as the visceral fat that pads internal organs (which has been linked to metabolic disturbances and increased risk for cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes).
Montenegro put together this hard-core high-intensity workout based on the latest research, her work with clients and her own experience (that's her in the photos; those abs don't lie).
So how do some people do it? I am not sure actually. I do know that REAL fitness models have to eat strict all the time and when they have shoots they go SUPER strict. Even they go up and down but on a high level. They have to workout hours a day but it’s their job. And they make $ from it. Is it worth it for me to continue working out that many hours a day to maintain this look? Maybe if it were my job, I’d do it.If I were just a normal person, I don’t think I would. It really is a lot of work and I honestly feel like you need to get paid to put yourself through this!
Also, bikini and fitness competitors all have a competition weight and an off season weight. Everyone has one. Curtis says we need to find mine too. It’s just not natural or safe to stay so low in body fat and weight all year round. He said that when he was competing he’d go up 20-30lbs in the off season and then just shed back down when it was time to hit the stage

In his own words:
" I started my martial arts training in 1982. I took numerous arts for a period of 1-2 years each trying to find my niche in the arts. 1 1/2 years Okinawan Goju Ryu under Sensei Tom Haggerty, 1 year of Bei Koku Aibujutsu Ryu under Soke dai John Douvillier, 2 years Hung gar Shaolin Kung Fu under Sifu Ricky Choi Leturia. In 2003 I began training in Eclectic Warrior Arts , A combination of several schools of Wing Chun & Pekiti Tirsia Kali, earning a black sash from Sibak Keith Hibdon in 1998. From 1996 to present I've been training in the art of American Kenpo Bu-jutsu under Professor Ron Bradbury. I currently hold the rank of Godan(5th degree black belt). I have just recently started training in the art of Lua under Kumu Lua Tim Mcguire although have not achieved rank in this system as to date."
Born and raised in the small farming community of Spiritwood, Saskatchewan, Brody Siebert grew up in a family full of musical talent. He flew down to Nashville in November of 2014 where he recorded three songs. One of the songs titled "Lay It On Me Tonight" came out the gate with lots of hometown support where it spent 4 days as the number one requested song on Saskatoon's 92.9 The Bull and hit number 85 on the Country Mediabase charts in its first month at radio
DIRT ROAD ANGELS
The five talented, creative and seasoned recording artists that make up Alberta's Dirt Road Angels are: Shawna Lynne, Shila Marie, Danita, Karen Claypool and Dahlia Wakefield. Their brand new album is called Paint The Town Red. It features catchy country rock songs such as the title track, which is their first single; the upbeat and fun song "Make Me Wanna"; they get tender on "Memories" and show their heartwarming side on "Best Friend." All are songs they wrote and performed at their 2014 Canadian Country Music Association Diamonds in the Rough showcase.
Country music became Curtis Braly's first love. While in school, he took advantage of every performing opportunity given to him. In the eighth grade, he won first place in a talent contest singing "Old Time Rock-n-Roll". That set things in motion for Curtis to seriously pursue performing live. "Something magical happened to me on that stage," he said. "I knew that music was my destiny, there is no other feeling like it!" This Texas artist's latest single is called "Doors Closing Everywhere."

Pre-workout supplementation is a rather new concept. It was not long ago that pre-workout supplementation was just starting to gain popularity. Luckily, in recent years much research has been done on the subject and many discoveries have been made that can benefit hard training lifters.The benefits of taking pre-workout supplements are numerous and can propel your workouts to new levels.
Pre-workout supplementation is designed to:
Decrease muscle breakdown during training
Increase protein synthesis
Improve energy and focus
Improve nutrient delivery and assimilation
Increase metabolic rate (fat burning)
Create an optimal hormonal environment
The attempt to spot-reduce body fat. It should be dead and buried, but it lives on. It’s a pursuit that just doesn’t go away. Consumer ignorance, keen marketing, and blind faith keep it alive, but past research shows it’s impossible.
It’s time to add one more nail to the coffin.
For those of you who are not familiar, spot reduction means the attempt to remove subcutaneous body fat stores from specific areas of the body by performing exercises that target those areas. In example, a person who has an inordinate amount of fat stored on their sides above the hips ("love handles") may use a side-bend or an abdominal side-to-side twisting exercise in the attempt to torch those fat cells. By now we should know the reality of this endeavor. Performing those exercises may strengthen the muscular responsible for those movements, but they have negligible impact on reducing the amount of fat stored there, all other factors being equal.
Priority #1: Whey Protein Powder
Why it made the list: Whey tops the list of mass-gain supplements because it's the most crucial for pushing protein synthesis. Whey is a milk protein that has a high level of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs, No. 4 on our list). Bottom line: Whey takes the crown because it digests fast and gets to your muscles rapidly to start building muscle. Whey also contains peptides (small proteins) that increase blood flow to the muscles. This is why we always recommend consuming whey protein immediately after training.
How to maximize its effects: Take 20 grams of whey protein powder in the 30 minutes before working out, and take 40 grams within 60 minutes after training. Also consider taking 20-40 grams of whey immediately upon waking every morning to kick-start muscle growth. Your best bet is to choose a whey powder that contains whey protein hydrolysates (whey protein broken down into smaller fragments for faster digestion) or whey protein isolate.
One of the challenges for all of us on the spiritual path is staying connected to our true identity as spiritual beings on an adventure in the physical world. We came here with that understanding, but remembering it and actually living life from that perspective isn’t always easy. Sometimes we need a reminder.
Reminding us of that reality has been one of the consistent themes of the spiritual teachings Jack Armstrong has received over the years. We will be discussing that challenge and the many ways it can appear in our lives, and Jack will share excerpts from his books and from his unpublished writings from Source that offer a helpful perspective on it.
For more than 35 years, Jack Armstrong has been a reluctant, yet willing, conduit for receiving and transcribing remarkable spiritual teachings through a form of channeling known as Inner Dictation -- the same phenomenon through which A Course in Miracles was received.
In 2008 he published his first book, Lessons from the Source: A Spiritual Guidebook for Navigating Life’s Journey, and last year he published two more – From the Source: An Introduction to Channeling, and You Don’t Need to Conduct the Orchestra; Lessons on Letting Go, Trusting and Allowing.
Jack is an explorer on the spiritual path whose life’s journey has included stops as a nonprofit executive, Peace Corps volunteer, congressional candidate, small business owner, actor, voiceover artist, and hospice volunteer. He lives on Bainbridge Island, Washington, and strives to practice the lessons he has received.
The Title says it all. Why. It makes sense. I come from your place, or very close to it, Even if we are at odds we are closer than others. I am not campaigning for your money, am not a Politician, will be among the best smart Commander-In-Chiefs, even protecting our military men and women. What are your problems or worries. They are many of mine because many of them touch me or have touched me, touched my family and people we know and don’t know. I know an unknown person has no chance to be seen by you. I know that its stupid to do this, and it even looks more stupid. But it’s not that stupid when you consider all the stupid things that are going on right now or that have just happened. Please see me in a better smart light. I say things that you may not like or want to hear. But they are for our own good, I must say them and bring them to light and right. There are some faulty people running for President. I am not one of them. I am one of us, if you can understand that in all its fullness. I know that when you get in the White House, things change. But I will be mind-fast heart-fast soul-fast honest-fast truth-fast. If you are a person I want better for you. If you are an animal I want better for you. If you are the earth I want better for earth. The White House belongs to you, not to a Political Party but a person of the people, ordinary if necessary. I am Curtis Clinton, in fact, a better Clinton. If you see it that way, could you and will you put together 120,000,000 Write-In Ballots for a Presidency being for us, with just one of us in there seeing to a better United States and for Americans with blood types of O's, A's and B's. If that many are cast, we will not have a divided country or Congress. One caring willing doing person can start a better world. You can begin with such a President. I am here for you. This is not for me. thanks, bwell, c2it, i am c2 and Curt Clinton
