This physical trainer answers some questions about physical work out.

Hey what’s up guys? It’s Ryan from and you know what today is?, it’s a great day for working out.

Welcome to another episode of Mind Food Monday where I answer your questions directly from me to you. Pick the top three questions from the comment box below and winner of the best question gets access to my 80-20 course, which has everything you need to know about getting results and nothing you don’t. So, with that being said, let’s go ahead and jump right into the first question.

Alright, EsTeVeZ141; Hey bro, just wondering how long it takes to get a six pack naturally? I’ve been working out for about six months and I m 15-14 percent body fat good job and have gotten the eating part under control and now I need that final step. So, question, how long does it usually take to get a six pack?

Well, let me answer your question with a question. How bad do you want it? Alright so, the length of time it takes you to get a six pack is going to depend on how many variables that you use in your favour. Things like; are you not drinking any more soda? are you not drinking beer? are you eating only the right foods? are you doing a good healthy workout? All of those types of things, are you doing it consistently is the most important one.

So the more of those variables that you are doing, the faster you’re going to get a six pack. Now you don’t have to do all of those to get one, just the less that you’re doing, the longer it s going to take. It’s a trade off.

So I’ve got a chart here I dug up, I found some old progress pictures of mine, I don’t know if this is helpful to see, get a sense. I think I was right around the same percentage as you here in April. You can see April to May, some progress, and then May to June it s a little bit more, it s also a little less see through because I went to the beach, and then the flowing month is when I did the 3d chest workout.

Now, I don’t remember how strict I was, I can go look up and see what I ate in my workout and, come to think of that, I may do that and put that information in the 80-20 course for those of you who want to see exactly what was done, because I’ve got it all there.

The main thing is it sounds like you’ve got the eating part under control like you said, but now you need to fine tune it, that s really the most important part is when you get in this final homestretch here is tweaking your eating even more, and the cardio as well.  So hope that’s helpful and hopefully that progress chart gives you kind of a scope that you can look into.

Alright up next, BlueNoseFoShow says: Hi Ryan, loving your videos mate. I was looking for some advice. I’ve been hitting the gym for about six months now and noticing slight definition in my chest. I m 21, weigh about 72 kilograms, 9% body fat.  Tell me some good foods to take up my calorie intake. I don’t want to end up taking the wrong food and being a chub.

Well, we certainly don’t want to make you a chub here at The Workout Corner. You know, a whole of great foods that you can eat, just off the top of my head, you’ve got chicken, tuna, salmon, lean meats, sweet potatoes, oatmeal, brown rice, walnuts, almonds, peanut butter if I didn’t say that already, eggs, milk, the list kind of goes on.

The main thing that I want you to be aware of is you don’t have to be afraid. You’re not going to wake up one day and you’re going to be a chub. As long as you’re kind of monitoring your progress and keeping an eye on yourself week to week you don’t have to worry about eating the wrong stuff or eating too much food. Hope that helps.

Alright, last but not least, Hey Ryan I m a freshman in a high school gym class. My teacher is now giving the class his own weight lifting program, and not only does it conflict with the rest between my workouts, but it stinks. I approached him and told him that I m doing lifting outside of school and would rather not mess up the success I’ve had using your blueprint. - Why, thank you -  and he replied that if I don’t do that workouts I would fail. How can I work around his every-other-day weight lifting schedule and rest?

Alright so a lot going on here. First, as far as the blueprint 80-20 course, keep in mind that is independent of the workout, so that’s not anything to follow per say, like a workout. Essentially, if your workout programs or workout routines are like a car, my 80-20 course is like a GPS. It goes inside the car, so it doesn’t really matter what workout program you’re doing, you can still use it because it s going to guide you along the way. So just go over that again, it’s gotten plussed up a lot, so I m assuming a lot of guys are kind of wondering what do I do if I m trying to do my own workout routine and I have a weight lifting class at school.

So, a couple options. One, you’ve already asked the teacher, and it looks like that didn’t work out too well. For other people I would suggest that when you approach the teacher, this is kind of an ego thing, because a teacher sees a younger guy and he doesn’t know, but you’re coming up going re-program stinks, I want to do my own program his natural reaction is going to be, No kid, I m not going to let you do it. Knowing that you have to kind of, not out smart them, but you just need to ask it in a different way.

So you may say This is a program I’ve been following, I’ve seen some results, can you take a look at it, give me some suggestions and maybe can I use this? That way you re kind of asking for his opinion, letting him kind of provide his guidance, and even if he makes some changes you’re still doing your workout.

Now if there’s just no way around it and you have to do the workout that they set, one option is, if you can, try just using really light weight, lighter weight that’s not taxing, that’s not really going to work you out too much, you can still do your workouts on your off days. If you have to do heavy weights, regular weights, then just do the work out and see how you feel. You can eat more food, you re younger so you will recover faster, and give that a shot. So a couple options there, hope that helps, and I know I went over there a little bit on the time limit but kind of a lot in that question. So, hope that was helpful.
