Joey,

Let me start by saying that I’ve never had a weight problem, per se and I’ve always been in pretty decent shape. But, when my husband, a doctor, packed on 30 extra pounds we started hitting the gym. (He’s of eastern Indian ethnicity and that group is really prone to Type II diabetes.)

I then got into fabulous shape but I always had those big “cheerleader” thighs. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get them toned without them appearing big. To top it off, I started noticing a little cottage cheese dimples on my ass and thighs (cellulite!).

I’m smart/experienced enough to know that I needed to find a different method and went web searching.

Your ULBHTM program caught my eye and I mulled it over for a day or two. I didn’t want to be impulsive and buy the first thing I saw because I thought that I’d likely end up with crap. But, I went back to your site a few days later and read more of your blog entries. I like your no-nonsense style and I liked that you peppered your statements with a curse word here and there. It told me that while you may take your work seriously, you don’t take yourself too seriously.

I thought, “Wow, here’s a guy that I wouldn’t mind training with in person.” and so I bought your program.

I had a trip planned (big party with friends in Amsterdam) so I didn’t get started right away, but when I did, WHOA! Those simple moves kicked my ass the first time and they still do today! I don’t think I’ll even bother schlepping to the gym anymore this winter. I’m so excited watching my legs slim down while I maintain the lean muscle tone. I’m so excited watching my ass firm up to that tight, 20-year-old appearance.

My AGs and 7s never looked so good on me!

Anyway, I wanted to say thanks. I never knew I didn’t have to do squats and deadlifts at the gym to get great results.

I can’t wait to see how I finish!

Stunning New Discovery About the Female Butt

Stunning New Discovery About the Female Butt

While going through a bunch of old fitness assessment documents I uncovered an amazing fact that I had to publish today…

Here’s the story…

Just this past week – I was able to finally fulfill a long-time dream of mine…. Which is the dream of working from home – but even more significant is the fact that I can now actually work in any location – I’m no longer tied to an office or a training studio…

The WORLD is now ‘my office’ – (as long as I have a laptop and ‘net access ;-))

So, as I was clearing out my office and sorting what to keep and what to get rid of – I had a chance to start going through about 380 fitness assessments from clients I’ve trained during the last 16 years or so… most of them women…

While doing this I uncovered something so insightful – so powerful – that I had to share it…

In my questionnaire for new clients – there was a section they’d fill out that asked “What are your top 3 Goals You Want to Reach?”

I started noticing how many women were listing some kind of improvement with their butt… It was something I never quite picked up during my full-time training days – I guess I was ‘too close to see it’…

Anyway – the truly surprising discovery was that these women who listed their butt as the # 1 priority for improvement – had the highest percentage of overall success in regards to achieving their goals – most of which had to do with getting their bodies into some kind of respectable shape – WITH emphasis on the BUTTOCKS region…

The more I went through these fitness profiles the more this relationship was becoming evident…

Women who wanted to fix their butt, more than any other region of their body were the most successful at fixing their butt problem issues AND getting the rest of their bodies in great shape as well… And the number was significant… Definitely not a fluke…

And so I had to try to figure out why of course…

And the only thing I could think of is the butt means so much to a woman in terms of her self esteem, the types of clothing she wears, her options when shopping for various articles of clothing, the attention she gets from her man or men in general, and how she feels about herself when she looks in the mirror at her backside, etc, etc… – that she is willing to put enough time, energy and effort into getting the desired results that the rest of her body getting in shape is a mere side effect of her drive and determination to literally “save her ass”…

It may have been that the focus was so concentrated and intentionally directed that being overwhelmed by all the other elements that usually distract so many women – simply were a non-factor – and the typical challenges and obstacles were non-existent – in other words they didn’t stand a chance against the ‘committed spirit’…

This finding was very energizing to me… As you might remember I mentioned in recent article that I’m working on a website/program that will be primarily focused on the female butt and fixing the various types of problem butts that women suffer from…. Finding this kind of amazing reinforcement of the concept is very promising as we are now factoring this into the final edition of this program, before we make it publicly available…

The way it’s designed basically guarantees your success – and that you will improve your butt and keep the improvements FOREVER…

You might be a bit anxious and excited about this thing – and I can understand as we are pretty excited too – there is NOTHING else like it…

In the meantime – If you want to start putting into words the problem(s) you are having with your backside – and the types of exact improvements you want to make with it – leave your comments below – I’d love to hear from you…

Best Leg Lift Exercise for Toning, Slimming and Sculpting

- by Joey Atlas, Author of Amazon Bestseller – ‘Fatness to Fitness’
—————————————————————————————————————

A common question I get from many women is, “What’s the best leg lift exercise for toning and slimming my legs?”

What made me think about writing this article is actually not the question but an experience I had during my own lower body workout a few days ago.

I happened to be at the local YMCA and I was finishing up my leg workout off to the side on a mat in some open floor space. About 30 feet from me were two other women doing some of their own leg lift exercises.

I got up to get a quick drink at the water fountain and a woman who had been watching my whole leg workout while she was on the treadmill came over to me and said, “I was watching your whole workout and what surprises me is that you didn’t use any weights or leg machines and your legs and butt look amazing.”

I thanked her and briefly explained a bit of my ‘leg exercise’ philosophy. She then commented on the noticeable difference between how I was doing my leg lift exercises on the mat as compared to the 2 women who were also doing leg lift exercises on the floor. She asked me for some insight on this.

I explained, “Most people haven’t learned that leg exercise tempo, form, sequence and grouping are just as important as the actual exercises. Then you introduce ‘micro-varying’ to your leg exercise program and you really make things happen. You were watching me do all of these things. These were the differences you were seeing between me and the 2 women over there doing their own versions of leg lift exercises.”

So in answering the question, “What’s the best leg lift exercise for toning and slimming my legs?”…

There is no single best leg lift exercise – but rather how you perform the leg exercise in regards to exercise tempo, form, sequence and what other leg exercises you are grouping it with. Beyond that – you want to consider ‘micro-varying’ your leg exercises for long term progression.

This is where the best results are achieved and that is really what we are after. The best results – and not actually ‘the best leg lift exercise’.

These are the principles that have made The Ultimate Leg, Butt, Hip and Thigh Makeover so popular among so many types of women. The program teaches the exact ways to perform each exercise with all the elements I mention above.

Women who use the ULBHTM for their leg, butt, hip and thigh areas get results. Women who kind of just go through the motions without regard to leg exercise tempo, form, sequence and grouping (like the 2 women at the YMCA) – get no results or very limited results.

Are you getting the results you want?

Or are you getting no results?

Let me know – leave a ‘comment’ below…

Leg, Butt, Hip and Thigh Enhancement Interview

- Joey Atlas being interviewed by Craig Ballantyne of www.TurbulenceFitnessTraining.com
_____________________________________________________________________________

CB: Joey, how did you go from just another trainer to a well known expert in working with female clients on helping them improve their legs, butts, hips, and thighs?

JA: From the start of my career, most of my clients have been women. I always made it a point to take note of the problems that came at the top of the list. It was very rare that a woman did not want to improve her lower body in some way.

Legs, butt, hips, thighs were always included in the desired improvements and quite often they were the only thing that a woman wanted to improve. So, I made it a point to focus my efforts on helping women get the changes they were looking for in their lower bodies.

Whether it was fat reduction and toning, cellulite reduction and shaping or building and sculpting – I have always enjoyed helping someone who is very confused about what to do or even unsure if they are capable of making any improvements at all.

CB: What types of exercises and workouts do you like to use for this purpose? Bodyweight, dumbells, machines? Do you ever get into kettlebells or barbells?

JA: I place emphasis on Bodyweight exercises. There is so much that can be done when you know how the body works in relation to gravity and one’s own bodyweight. So many people get lost in the machine and weight based workout routines and they miss out on so much that can be accomplished with a creative and balanced routine that is based on bodyweight exercises.

I’ll use dumbbells when appropriate and sometimes I’ll have clients use The Atlas Bag, which is a nylon bag I designed, with handles on each end. It holds most average size medicine balls and is very versatile and comfortable.

But the essence of this program – the thing that really brings the short and long term improvements is teaching women what they can do with no equipment – and just a few things that already have in the house. Its a lot of fun to see their progress and their emotional reactions about the changes.

CB: What would be a typical workout schedule for a beginner client with about 20 – 40 pounds to lose?

JA: We start with 5 – 8 minutes of lower body and core stretching. Then we’ll spend about 15 minutes on the mat, going through a series of beginner level, leg, butt, hip, thigh, ab and core moves. I teach this as ‘building a foundation’.

We may add some upper body moves while still on the mat and then it’s up to standing where the client is led through a series of beginner level lower body moves that lasts about 12 more minutes. This is followed by 5 minutes of lower body stretching.

This routine is recommended 2 – 3 times per week. One interesting note here is that even with women who tell me ‘they have been exercising’ or even if I know I’m dealing with someone who is clearly not a beginner – I’ll still run them through the beginner level program – because 99.7% of the time – my methods are different than anything else they’ve been doing, or may have tried in the past. And this surprises a lot of the female ‘fitness veterans’ – but it’s a pleasant surprise. – That’s why I get paid the ‘big bucks’, right?

CB: That’s for sure, Joey. How about something for a woman who is a little more advanced after going through your beginner and intermediate level program?

JA: For a more advanced client the outline is generally the same, but some of the exercise variations may be more challenging and the way the program is put together can also challenge a client beyond what they have been doing previously.

There is a cumulative effect that comes from how certain exercises are put into sequence with others. I like to take advantage this effect as opposed to ‘adding more weight’ or ‘doing more sets of the same exercise’. Again, 2 – 3 times per week is usually a good frequency.

If the advanced client is at a maintenance level – then it’s possible that once or twice per week is just fine.

CB: How do you educate your clients on nutrition and what are some of the tricks and tips you give to maximize compliance and results?

JA: I like to illustrate some of the long standing myths & misconceptions and re-educate clients about realistic, fitness promoting nutrition. Everything I teach is based on the proven concept of ‘daily caloric intake’.

As most, but not all, women want to lose weight – the biggest challenge is creating the daily caloric deficit needed to result in fat loss and toning. One of the ‘tricks’ I teach goes against what most experts are teaching.

I’m not saying those experts are wrong but I offer a different approach. It’s called ‘calorie shifting’…

Most people believe they are supposed to eat breakfast everyday because its healthy, etc, etc… However there are a lot of people who do this and find that it makes them hungrier and this causes them to consume more calories than they would like to over the course of a day. What I suggest, and I do this everyday as well – because it really works for me, is not to skip breakfast, but to push it later into the day.

For example, I’ll have a cup of tea or espresso with a little organic skim milk, at about 7am. But I don’t eat breakfast until 10:30 or 11am, lunch would be at around 2:30 or 3pm and so on.

In effect, all my meals are pushed back a few hours leaving less time for snacking and munching on unnecessary calories – making it so much easier to stay in the ideal daily caloric intake range.Lots of women who need to lose weight – who have been unsuccessful in the past – do well with this approach.

CB: And what about cardio? Do you use long cardio, intervals, or something else…a mix? What works best here?

JA: This all depends on the client. All of the above choices can work, but the key is to prescribe what they enjoy the most (this is rule number one) – because this makes long term adherence much more likely – and this is where permanent results are achieved.

Anytime you can get someone to stick with something for the long haul, you increase the possibility that it will become habit and harder to give up. Exercise is addictive when done properly. The results naturally follow.

CB: What are some lifestyle factors and obstacles that your clients have to avoid? What are some typical situations they find themselves in and how do they avoid temptation, setbacks or reverting bad habits?

JA: One of the more prevalent is vacation or holidays. For some reason people tend to put exercise on the back burner and on top of that they increase their food and beverage consumption, way more than they need to.

The root of this lies in whether or not the person has defined their values and if fitness is a part of those values or if it’s ‘just a way to look better in a bathing suit’ – which I consider a short term, superficial compulsion.

The more superficial the reasons for pursuing fitness are, the more likely there will be episodes of self sabotage, setbacks and most likely, failure. When fitness pursuits are based on getting the most out of life, for as long as possible, then a strong value system is in place and actions become based on these values.

The ‘sexy body’ is a natural by-product of the person’s values and matching ‘habits of daily life’.

CB: And finally, do you have any insights or tips that might surprise us…is there something that people think is good for fat loss but you disagree with…or vice versa? Any original tips would be great.

JA: I’ll go back to my ‘skipping breakfast’ concept mentioned above – calorie shifting. This takes a lot of people by surprise. Knowing that I have a masters degree in exercise physiology – they are waiting for some complex, scientific reason about why this works, when it goes against most of what we hear in the mainstream media.

And when I boil it all down – it’s simply a way of manipulating daily caloric intake in a way that makes it easier to implement and stick with. Women who want to lose body fat love it – because it’s easy and it works – that’s really all they want.

And here is something else that will become more prevalent in the mainstream media within the next 4 – 8 years… One of the things that people think is good for fat loss, but I strongly disagree with, is the number artificial sweeteners that are being used in the reduced calorie foods and diet drinks.

I won’t mention any trade or chemical names but these are substances I would not recommend to anyone.

This is one of the reasons I started creating my own healthy ‘fitness beverage’. I couldn’t find a truly healthy, all natural, tasteful drink that was low in calories and was really conducive to the fitness lifestyle. So I did some research and started making my own.

My clients are pushing me to bring it to the public, so I’m exploring that possibility. Oh – and here is something else that really gets me – these artificial sweeteners are also being used in regular versions of foods and drinks – with no notices on the labels. You have to find out by reading the ingredients list.

I know this because it happened to me. By chance, I was reading the label of a type of fairly healthy bread we had been buying for years. To my surprise – the company had started using one of the most widely used artificial sweeteners as an ingredient and didn’t even mention it on the packaging, except for in the very small ingredients list.

I thought this was an absolute joke and we simply stopped buying this company’s products.

CB: Thanks Joey – the info you shared here is great stuff – and will truly help a lot of women out there.

JA: My pleasure Craig – thanks for having me.
