This Week's Ask Gilad: How Do I Find The Time To Exercise?

Question: I don't have enough time for exercise. Do you any suggestions to find more time? 

Answer:

 I don't know your schedule but I do not doubt that you feel the way you do.  

All we talk about is three to six hours a week - a minimum of thirty minutes every other day. Consider what all the incredible benefits of doing this are to your health, and making it easier for your body to get through the additional 132-165 hours of the week.

This Week's Ask Gilad: Getting The Most From Your Abdominal Workout

Welcome to "Ask Gilad" - a weekly blog written by Fitness Hall of Fame member Gilad.  Thanks for reading.

Question: I have gotten to the point in my fitness program where I am happy with the results I am getting in most parts of my body.  But I still have a problem area.  I can't seem to get the definition I want in my abs.  Any suggestions?  I want a well defined 6-pack! 

Answer:

The truth is that the abdominal muscles usually work in unison and it is hard to isolate specific parts.  However, different positions and angles can help shift the emphasis of the exercise to a specific part of the abdominals. 

Basically we divide the abdominals as follows: Upper abs, lower abs, obliques and transverse abdominals.  The transverse abdominals are the muscles that pull your belly button in toward your spine.  In order to get the most out of your abdominal workout no matter what angle you choose, always start the exercise by consciously engaging the transverse abdominal muscles by simply pulling your belly button slightly towards the spine, then execute the exercise while maintaining that posture. This simple 'trick' will help you get better results no matter what part of the abdominals you are going for!

Question:

Hi Gilad, how are you? I am a 60 years old woman who has kept in shape all her life with your exercise DVDs. I haven’t seen any new ones lately. Since I live in Canada and that 6 months out of the year, it’s snow,I just love your locations in Hawaii. My question is: Will you produce other exercise DVDs soon, I would hope so, age is just a number. If you do, I will surely buy them. Thank you. LOLA DERRICO

Answer: Dear Lola, at the moment we don't have any new videos planed. I wish we did. If and when we do you will know about it. In the mean time I hope you keep your body in motion!

THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question:  I have a very stressful job. When I get home all I want to do is turn on the news and fall asleep in my recliner. I can't even imagine exercising during the work week. How do people do it? They must not be under as much stress as I am.

 



Answer: It sounds like you have gotten into a vicious cycle. And, believe it or not, exercise just might be your way out of it.

You can actually fight off stress with exercise. Don't let a hard day at work keep you from heading to the gym or the track. You have a perfect opportunity to use the time you would have been sleeping in front of the news. Fifteen minutes into your workout you will feel a lot better.

And there is an added benefit. If you substitute exercise for sleeping in your recliner you will probably feel like going to bed earlier... and you will probably sleep more soundly. Who knows? With a little extra quality rest...your job may not seem as stressful.
