and a Lean Stomach
an interview by Geovanni Derice
with Mike Geary - Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal
had the pleasure of being interviewed recently by a
professional from NYC, Certified Personal Trainer, Geovanni Derice. The
interview is below and I think you're going to like it... I reveal some
of the hardest hitting strategies for getting rid of that stubborn
stomach fat to uncover those flat six pack abs that everyone wants.
Welcome Mike Geary to our
4-ever-Toned Fitness Journal. For those who do not know you, please
tell us a few things about yourself and how you can help our readers
with their fitness and health.
Thanks for having me,
Geo. Well, to go back a little, I have been heavily involved in fitness
and sports for about 17 years now, ever since I was a teenager. Being
involved in sports in high school got me interested in strength
training and conditioning.
that point, once I started feeling more energetic,
stronger, and looking better, I was instantly hooked for life. I'm 33
now and still addicted to the way living a healthy and fit lifestyle
makes me feel energetic, confident, strong, and youthful on a daily
decided earlier in my 20's that I wanted to make the
help other people experience the excitement of being fit and getting in
the best shape of their lives, especially since we've reached an
epidemic of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, etc.
That's why I became a fitness professional. It just gives me so much
satisfaction to help others, who have struggled for years to get in
good shape, and show them that it can be done, and it can be fun in the
expanded over the years from just reaching local
with personal training, into being able to help people all over the
globe achieve their fitness goals with the reach of the internet. I
only hope that my passion for fitness inspires people to take action
and improve how they look and feel for life.
Now Mike, there's so
many things out there as to what works and what does not work... if you
had to pick 3 things that work time and time again to get flat lean
abs, what would they be?
The first and most
important thing to get control of in order to lose your belly fat and
get flat abs is cleaning up your diet. Exercise is important, but your
diet is king when it comes to losing body fat so that you can see your
so much confusion these days about what a
healthy diet that
promotes fat loss really is... after all, we are bombarded by
conflicting messages in the media about what is healthy and what is
not, and you have all of these gimmicky diet books about low carb, low
fat, high protein, vegetarian, fasting, atkins, south beach, liquid
diets, and hundreds more. There's so much conflicting info, that the
average consumer doesn't even know where to start when it comes to
eating for fat loss.
second thing that works time and time again, is to
focus on the
intensity of your workouts and focus on working the body as a whole in
order to get the best metabolic response to lose that stubborn stomach
order to really get lean, the workouts should have a
intensity, with short rest periods, working the largest muscle groups
of the body, instead of trying to isolate specific small muscles like
the biceps, triceps, or calves.
the third thing, let's talk about actually training
specifically. When it comes to training the abs, if you want real
results, I always recommend forgetting about the crunches and situps
for the most part. They are ok for someone that is really
deconditioned, but most people that already have some training under
their belt need a much better stimulus for their abs than crunches.
Crunches are one of the abs exercises that actually provide the least
amount of resistance, and remember that resistance is what develops and
tones the muscles.
provide a ton of great abs exercises in my book, but
one of THE
highest resistance exercises for the abs, is hanging leg raises (but
NOT the way you see most people at the gym doing them). The key to
doing these and actually working the hell out of your abs is to curl
your pelvis up as you raise your legs. Almost nobody ever does this
right. To be honest, the majority of people cannot do this at first,
but I provide some strategies in my book as to how to progress to doing
What are people doing wrong when it comes to developing the coveted "6
Well Geo, I know this
sounds funny to most people, but the MAIN thing that people are doing
wrong to get those flat 6-pack abs is... are you ready for this?
spend entirely too much time
focusing on training their abs! WAY too much time spent
on abs exercises. Sounds crazy, but it's true.
having a flat and visible six pack of abs is
getting down to a low body fat percentage. In order to do that, your
workouts must focus on stimulating a fat burning hormonal environment
in your body, and increasing your metabolic rate. That just does not
happen when you focus too much time training a small muscle group like
you must use the majority of your time focusing
the largest muscle groups of the body like the legs, back, and chest.
That's what stimulates your metabolism and the fat burning hormones
that will get you truly lean and sporting a flat sixxer!
Which exercises are the top exercises that people need to do if they
are to get maximum defintion with their midsection?
When it comes to
developing the abs themselves, I again refer to any kinds of hanging
abs exercises, as well as some good floor abs exercises like lying leg
thrusts (all described and illustrated in my book).
maximum definition in the abs and midsection
losing bodyfat, and the most effective exercises featured in my program
for that goal are various forms of swings and snatches (unique dumbbell
exercises that almost nobody ever does in normal gyms), squats,
deadlifts, lunges, step-ups, clean & presses, mountain
sprinting, and other full body exercises and calisthenics. If you want
great looking flat abs, focus on those instead of focusing so much on
training the abs directly!
When it comes to diet
Mike, people really have tried millions of ways to get one thing... and
that is fat loss. What recommendations have you used to successfully
help your clients lose body fat and keep it off?
I have included a fully
comprehensive discussion of this topic in my book, which accounts for
almost half of the book, but I'll try to make some nice simple
generalizations to get people started on the right path immediately.
The most important thing is that your diet is as natural and
unprocessed as possible. It almost always comes back to the
overprocessing of food that makes it unhealthy, and makes it totally
wreck your metabolism and hormone balance in your body.
example, why eat refined grains, when you can eat
(even better are sprouted grains, as I usually recommend limiting grain
foods overall for best results).
eat refined sugar, when you can get natural sources
from a high nutrient whole food like fruit. Why eat highly processed,
refined, and hydrogenated vegetable oils (these are THE worst thing in
the modern diet), when you can eat natural sources of healthy fats like
nuts, avocados, fish, eggs, coconut milk, organically raised meat, and
point is to not fall for some gimmick like extremely
(although I do believe in a fairly reduced carb intake as that is a big
problem for most people), low fat, super high protein, or any other
combination that has you focusing on one macronutrient vs. another.
body needs all macronutrients to thrive and obtain
a variety of
vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc. Trying to cut an entire food
group out just works against what your body needs. I get into much more
detail on this vitally important topic towards losing body fat
(especially that stubborn stomach fat) for life in my book.
Thank you very much Mike for sharing with us all of this great
