Functional Core Conditioning Circuits

Functional Core Conditioning Circuits

Earn Six Pack abs for Summer by using challenging functional core movements combined with short rest periods between sets to elevate fat burning hormones. Training core muscles as nature intended with challenging functional movements creates excellent abdominal muscle definition that begins to “pop” nicely even before reaching a single digit body fat percentage. Functional Core Conditioning Circuits with a variety of medicine balls and partially filled hydro balls bring excellent results by providing fresh stimuli for muscles and the nervous system. Accelerated recovery and proper fueling amplifies the fat burning benefits created by 5 total compact weight and core training sessions per week as part of the Strive for Five System.


Functional Core Conditioning Circuits

  • Improve Core Muscle Definition
  • Boost Fat Burning Hormones for up to 48 Hours following each session
  • Elevate Athletic performance
  • Reduce the Risk of many injuries associated with muscle imbalances
  • Short sessions done anywhere
  • Train Rotation and Anti Rotation Qualities

Challenging movements combined with short rest periods help to increase fat burning hormones tremendously.  Fat Reduce FBO5 Day time formula taken before training sessions and between meals creates an ideal hormonal and metabolic environment for fat burning during intense training sessions and when taken between meals. Fat Reduce FBO5 Night Time formula helps clients transition into restful sleep while helping the body utilize more stored fat as fuel during the sleep phase and beyond.

The abdominal and lower back muscles making up the core were designed to balance the body during dynamic movements including quick rotations. As a result attempting to train abdominal muscles in isolation with exercises such as crunches and sit ups are counter-productive. One of the leading causes for lower back pain according to Dr. Eric Serrano MD is poorly designed abdominal training with sit ups and various infomercial devices. Poorly constructed plans lead to muscle imbalances, weaknesses increasing risk of injuries and tight hip flexors directly tied to lower back pain.

Getting Rid of Mid Section Body Fat Covering Your Six Pack

Fat Reduce FBO5 Day and Night time formulas are scientifically engineered by Dr. Eric Serrano MD to bust through the most significant metabolic and hormonal barriers to body fat loss. Extensive patient trials and hormonal blood work reviews led Dr. Serrano to the exact ingredient ratios needed within the Fat Reduce FBO5 Day and Night time formulas to get rid of stubborn body fat. Shut off fat storage receptors concentrated in the mid section for men and lower body for women so the body can burn stubborn fat as an efficient fuel source.

Wake Up Feeling Like A Million Bucks

The Fat Reduce FBO5 Day Time is taken twice during the day such as first thing in the morning and the early afternoon to optimize metabolism and fat burning hormones while shutting off fat storage receptors. The day time formula improves mental focus, reduces cravings and brings on feelings of well being. The night time formula helps clients transition into restful sleep by lowering stress levels and enables the body to utilize more stored fat as a fuel source during the sleep cycle. Wake up feeling more well rested which leads to better food and exercise choices in addition to naturally optimized hormonal advantages.

hydro ball unbalanced squat

Unbalanced loading forces the core muscles to stabilize as nature intended to improve six pack definition and functional strength. 100% MR naturally flavored and Muscle Synthesis Powder Naturally flavored accelerate recovery, improve performance while driving body transformations.  GCX10 attacks stubborn body fat and is extremely helpful when taken before challenging training sessions by increasing peak power and strength endurance to sustain excellent performance throughout a 30 minute Functional core conditioning circuit workout.

 

Unbalanced Core Training Movements

Shifting water within partially filled hydro balls and using two medicine balls of different weights during a movement provide unbalanced loading to challenge core muscles as nature intended. Water moves around the partially filled hydro balls creating more forces for the core muscles to counter act during movements. An overhead squat with a 50 pound hydro ball in one arm and a 15 pound hydro ball in the other requires the core muscles to operate energetically to keep the torso upright during the squat movement.

Strive For Five

Three Weight training and two fat burning interval sessions including functional core work form the optimal training frequency for a majority of trainees wanting to transform body composition based on our over 50 years of combined experience. Each well planned and executed session can boost fat burning hormones as well as metabolism for 48 hours when proper recovery is supported with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder. Consistent execution of the Strive For Five training frequency creates a heightened status of fat burning around the clock and builds significantly over time.

Hydro Ball Lunge

The Hydro Ball is partially filled with water to create an unbalanced environment which recruit the core muscles in a highly intense manner. Scott Mendelson pushes the ball outward in an accelerative fashion which requires the core muscles to counter act the forces created by the water moving within the hydro ball. The device pictured weighs approximately 50 pounds when partially full.Unbalanced
