Every week we sit down with a coach at Innerfight Gym and we talk fitness, health and more.
This week Ben Davies was the man in the hot seat.
Ben comes to fitness from an education background, being a school teacher.

Straight leg crunch!
If you've been doing straight-up, conventional crunches and hoping for a chiseled six pack, we're about to deliver some news that may be disappointing! Crunches are good core exercises but because they only work a limited number of muscles, they aren't likely to produce the abs of your dreams. In order to get a killer abs, you need to take a multi-muscle approach. That means adding moves that work more than just your rectus abdominis and obliques! Your rectus abdominis is the large muscle that runs the length of your torso. By adding straight leg abs to your routine, you'll increase engagement with the lower part of this muscle as well as the muscles in your lower back. This will help whittle your waist and tone your lower belly! Take a look: https://vimeo.com/189950966 To get the most from this workout (and all your other workouts!), be sure to wear your BodyRock weighted vest. It will add extra resistance to all of your movements, increasing your burn, without you having to change a single thing!
Thoughts? Without reflection you have no direction.
