Why New Year’s Fitness Resolutions Fail

While we might all think that January 2019 was the longest year ever, the truth is the new year is only 6 weeks old. If you are like most people, your New Year’s Resolutions included some kind of pledge to “really get in shape THIS year”. So, how’s working out working...

Jordan Peterson Saved My Life

There is a reason this website has been relatively silent for a few years. From the fact that my father died in a car accident in 2016, to disintegrating personal relationships with people I thought would always be there, to several failed business ventures; to call...

Carb Nite vs. Carb Back Loading

This is a question that gets quite often, should I do CarbNite or Carb Backlaoding? And unfortunately, like most things fitness related the answer is “it depends”. What it depends on is YOU, and your current level of fitness and your current goals. As a...

Carb Backloading vs. Renegade Diet

Ok, so you may be wondering how does Carb Backloading compare to the Renegade Diet.  Honestly there are some similarities and some differences.  I have tried them both, and for me personally I prefer the CBL because it seems like more of a lifestyle than a “diet”. The...

The Keys to Exercise Selection for Athletes

It’s interesting how much dogma exists in training.  Despite all the information that is available to us today, there are still many things that we do without even thinking about WHY.  For instance take jogging.  Athletes that participate in predominately anaerobic...

Run Faster Jump Higher Throw Harder

What if I told you there was a particular muscle that controlled not only how fast you run, but how high you jump and how hard you can throw?  If you are an athlete that combination would probably be of interest to you.  Let’s face it, run, jump and throw pretty much...

The Crossfit Model For Mediocrity

Ok, ok I did that thing that writer’s do.  I used a really controversial sounding title to get you to read this.  If you are a crossfitter you are probably already in the middle of mentally drafting a scathing comment about how wrong I am.  Don’t forget your stopwatch...

The Airing of Grievances Fitness Edition

Another holiday season is upon us.  I don’t know about you, but I am not really sure where 2013 went.  This year, as they are want to do, just seemed to fly by.  And just like the many years that proceeded it there were some high points and some low points.  We all...

Gifts for Strength Athletes

With only a few shopping days before Christmas it is crunch time for many of you last minute shoppers.   I have to admit before the advent of the internet I was a Christmas Eve buyer myself.  I would do my shopping throughout the year so I knew what I was getting. ...

What is The Sly Stallone Ab Workout?

One thing I bet you are curious about is the Stallone Ab Workout.  Despite the fact that the guy is 60 years old, he still has a 6 pack that a 20 year old would envy.  Obviously we remember that Rocky Balboa built his abs with bridges, but what ab exercises are included in the Stallone workout?  Well why not have him tell you himself.  This video from his short lived TV show The Contender, Sly describe his ab workout in detail along with his trainer Gunnar Peterson

The Stallone Ab Workout

  • Ab Wheel
  • Swiss Ball Crunches
  • Leg Raises
  • Rotational Crunch
  • Kneeling Cable Crunches
  • Ab Crunch Complex

stallone ab workoutAs you might expect there really is nothing fancy to this workout.  Though I have to admit his use of the rotational crunch is an idea that I had not thought about.  It is also interesting to see some of his additional training at the end of the video.  So of it looks left over from his Rocky Balboa training.  Though since it was a promo for his TV show you have to wonder how much of it was real.  Still though, it is funny to see that Sly recommends the Ab wheel.  How much money is wasted each year on new secrets to get great abs?  The Ab Wheel literally was probably the first piece of ab equipment ever invented, and it is still around.  It is still around because it works.  Nothing fancy, just years of proven results.

==>Learn the Stallone Workout Secret<==


So that gives you a look at how Sly built his impressive abs.  Obviously his diet had a huge part to play in this.  I will be looking into that in a future post, but at least now you know what he does for abs.  After watching that video now I want to try the rotational crunches.  Which part of the Stallone Ab workout are you going to try?
