I’m sure you’ve seen the ads for ‘eight minute abs.’
Then seven minute. Then six. And so on.
Sounds absolutely ludicrous, doesn’t it. Especially
if, as I mentioned before, you’ve developed an
idea that a workout should take a long, long time for
it to be effective. Simply not true.
As the saying goes, ‘T’aint how big the dog is in
the fight – tis how much fight there is in the dog.’
Same goes for how you train. It’s not how long – it’s
what you put into the time.
The truth is that you don’t need a 30-minute abdominal
workout each day, as some people think. You simply
need to give your abs the training they need.
There are many ways to accomplish this. One way is to do
the Farmer Burns deep breathing exercise, as taught in
Combat Abs – http://ffadmin.wpengine.com/combat_abs.html
In this exercise you integrate deep breathing with isometric
contractions – and each one lasts 3 to 6 seconds.
The Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener alone – which I learned
in his 1914 by-mail course, ‘Lesson in Wrestling and Physical
Culture’ – http://ffadmin.wpengine.com/farmerburns.html –
when done for about 9 reps per day – which will take you a
couple minutes, will do more for your midsection than
virtually anything else.
The Farmer Burns deep breathing exericise is just
one of seven exercises that comprise ‘The Magnificent
Seven’ of Combat Abs – http://ffadmin.wpengine.com/combat_abs.html
Altogether, you can blast through the entire routine in a matter of
minutes. The routine will make you stronger and more limber throughout
your core and tighten your midsection in a big way.
If you haven’t already gotten this program, there’s no time like NOW
to get on the stick.

One last thing: Don’t forget about your bridging. The
bridge is a superb exercise, not just for strengthening
the neck and back – but for making your abs like granite.
Well, my friend, that’s all for now.
