So there you are, sitting at a table, waiting
for your food to arrive. Whether you’re
following an ‘el stricto’ diet or preparing
yourself for a splurge – it’s never a bad idea
to do a few repetitions of the Farmer Burns
This afternoon, when I was having dinner (that’s
what we called lunch when I was growing up in Iowa –
the evening meal was called supper, a term I don’t
use no mo’) at Xiao Zhu Luo, a Szechuan style
restaurant here in Haikou, on China’s Hainan Island, I
did a few reps – and the good news is, no one in the
joint had a clue.
That’s the beauty of this whole ‘five second abs’ deal.
You can train your abs virtually anytime and anywhere,
and ‘no one has to know.’ But lie on your back and start
doing a set of 100 crunches, leg lifts, situps and so on –
and anyone who is in the room knows what you’re trying
As an aside, yesterday Carol (the head honcho in charge of
fulfillment for all my products), forwarded me an email from
a man who does the Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener whilst
holding the wall chair position taught in Combat Conditioning –
think the dude is right on the money.
Another ‘hidden’ benefit of training your abs the way I teach in
Combat Abs – http://www.mattfurey.com/combat_abs.html – is
greatly improved digestion. Anyone who travels often knows how
a simple change in food, time, weather, work hours, and so on –
can put your digestive system in disorder. But when you do the
Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener – that’s not a problem.
When you take the deep breathing aspect of this exercise and combine
it with abdominal flexing, you’re simultaneously giving your intestines
the ‘plunger’ treatment. Believe me now and listen to me later, doing the
Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener is sort of like getting a healthy
dose of ‘cosmic fiber.’ Do a set before breakfast in the morning, and
before dinner (lunch, supper, snacks, mid-time meals, etc.) and you
will experience the flow in more ways than one.
Well, it’s now 9 P.M. here in China, and my stomach is telling me to
feed it. So I’m going to sign off now. But before I do, remember this:
The more awareness you bring to your abdominals and midsection
throughout the day, the faster your results. And really, how hard is
it to bring awareness to a body part in five-second increments.
Kick butt – take names!
P.S. Last call for my “Secret of Secrets” Ftiness Seminar. It’s next week.
Only a couple seats remain. This may be the LAST fitness seminar I ever
do – so go to http://www.mattfurey.com/007_fitness_bootcamp.html
