No Rules Training and No Excuses

Before I say anything let me give you a friendly word of advice, never drink a can of Spike energy drink after 8 p.m.! It’s been a long day and I’m up at 2 a.m. looking like a damn rave junkie that popped an e-pill. At the same time, if you are an entrepreneur it could become your best friend.

Warp Speed Fat Loss for Athletes - Part II

Everyone loves fast results, don’t you? 

As much as I am a firm believer of hard work, commitment and persistency, I also believe that getting people to see results fast keeps them motivated and makes them believe in what you’re doing. This is also the reason I have incorporated the Warp Speed Fat Loss meal plans with the athletes that come through our door and need to drop weight and/or body fat as fast as possible.

If I get a baseball athlete (example) in the off season and I have 4 months to get him to the next level of performance, yet I need him to drop 15-20 lbs, then it’s a huge plus for me to be able to do that as fast as possible so that we can then focus the remainder of the training towards their next season (strength, power, conditioning, imbalances, etc…).

Here is another case where Warp Speed came in handy as we put Dennis on the program and modified the training to best suit his fat loss goals. I knew that he would do great but I have to say I was a little surprised myself as we checked the final numbers. Dennis went from 212 lbs on day 1 to 192.3 lbs on day 28! On top of that he is moving better and has improved his reactvity while also getting better number in certain core lifts. Not bad for 28 days.

The Last 4 Weeks

I am trying to reintroduce sleep back into my life as there hasn’t been much in the past 6 weeks. The day just doesn’t have enough hours with all the things that are on my to do list. I have been delegating but it’s still crazy. I would love to believe that it will get calmer soon but I know that’s not the case.

As the Hocevar Performance Gym is getting busier and I am still training a lot of hours at Vision Quest, running a business, there is little (that would mean none) time for much R & R.  There has been a ton of good things happening though and that makes me foregt about being tired and rejuvenates my spirit (yes I said spirit!). Here is a bunch of different things that has been going on that I wanted to mention, from the new look of the Hocevar Performance Gym to some transformation pics of our athletes. Here goes in no particular order:

What’s Real Core Strength?

When I was in my teenage years I used to do all the crunches in the world and did every single “angle” of an exercise to hit the abs and get that impressive six- pack. Not only did I realize that this was not the way to a set of six pack abs but it definitely didn’t improve my on court performance or make me stronger at any lifts.

First question I want to ask you, is do you have a strong core? How do you know, because you have ripped abs? Is it because you do thousands of crunches every week? Or maybe you can hold a plank for a minute? Well, I’m sorry to tell you that’s not going to do it and even though people with a strong core may have six-pack abs and hold a plank for a minute, it is definitely not what determines it.
