However, with the right equipment and the correct exercises, you can build an admirable physique without having to deal with traffic jams, blaring music or gym fees.

In today's Lean Body Coaching newsletter, natural bodybuilder and international best-selling fitness author  Hugo Rivera shares his entire home workout routine.

You'll discover the exercises that provide you with the greatest bang for your buck and exactly what equipment you need to maximize your results. It's far easier and less expensive than you might think.

Lean Body Lean Lipid Fat Burner.
Our all-new EFA's product, Lean Body Lean Lipid, is perfect for anybody who wants to support lean muscle growth, improve brain function, heart-health and overall well-being. 

But, what if you could get even MORE from your fish oil supplement? Not only could you get all of the above, but also get extra help in burning unwanted body fat, resulting in a leaner body? Most people understand the health benefits traditionally associated with the use of a fish oil supplement.
You might be thinking, "How is an essential fatty acids supplement supposed to do what a fat burner or muscle toning product does?" 

Think of Lean Body Lean Lipids as a "supercharged" fish oil supplement. 

Along with the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, Lean Body Lean Lipids also includes GLA and oleuropein, an olive leaf extract. These added ingredients give Lean Body Lean Lipids an edge  that other essential fatty acids supplements just can't match.    


Let's look at these ingredients more closely.

We'll start with the special fish oil blend use in Lean Body Lean Lipids.

Unlike other fish oil supplements containing low doses of EPA, Lean Body Lean Lipids contains

2 times more EPA than DHA - and studies show that fish oil supplements with this 2:1 ratio promote more fat loss. 

Then we add in GLA, an Omega-6 essential fatty acid that studies show stimulates fat burning. But, GLA doesn't just help increase fat loss. It actually works double-duty by also helping to reduce body-fat accumulation.

And finally, we add Oleuropein, an olive leaf extract that enhances fat burning and increases energy. 

You'll get the scientifically proven amounts of each ingredient. Every ingredient is listed on the label with their corresponding amounts. Unlike some companies, nothing is hidden in a so called "proprietary blend".  

Available in easy to swallow capsules, you get a combination of healthy, powerful essential fatty acids that you won't find in any other formula. 

Add Lean Body Lean Lipids to your nutrition program today and not only will you enjoy improved health, you'll also have added support to help you burn off unwanted body fat!

Are Situps the Best Exercise for the Midsection? 

Today's ask Lee question comes from Annette Smith in Pittsburgh, PA. 

I've heard that setups are not the best exercise for working my abs. If I'm trying to tone up my midsection, what do you recommend?


Annette, it's a common misconception that sit-ups are the best exercise for training your abdominals. The problem with sit-ups, is that it's an exercise that brings into play the psoas muscles which are part of your hip flexors. These muscles attach to your lower spine and improperly used, can cause lower back pain and injury. Because the psoas are powerful muscles, it's advantageous to minimize their contribution when doing abdominal exercises. In other words, what we want to do is to isolate the abdominal region. To do this, I recommend performing crunches instead of setups.

To perform crunches, lie down on the floor. Your back should be flat against the floor, and your buttocks pushed forward close to the bench. Rest your legs on the bench so that your knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. When viewed from the side, you should look like you are in an inverted "sitting" position.

When performing crunches, make sure that you keep your torso and upper legs at a 90-degree starting angle, and knees are pointing straight towards the ceiling. This takes the psoas muscles out of the movement. 

You should not need to have your feet restrained; if you do, you are pulling with your psoas! This defeats the exercise and additionally can cause major strain to your back. Slowly curl your torso towards your pelvis, exhaling as you do.

One final tip: avoid sit up boards that have feet restraints, so you're not tempted to pull with your hip flexors. Most gyms will have an area where you can set down an exercise mat and perform your crunches.

Until next time,  stay healthy and strong. 
Get lean, live lean!
