From start to finish of Abs Class, you lose 2 lbs on average. I’ve tracked this carefully by weighing myself, and other people, before and after the class.
Spin is approximately the same in terms of weight-loss. But you sweat more in spin, some of that weight-loss is water-weight, which you gain back upon re-hydration.
Abs Class removes weight specifically from the mid-section while cardio tends to remove the weight from your face and, for women, chest. That’s why long-distance runners can look gaunt, and some of us older people a bit wrinkly in the face.
If you’re serious about weight-loss take a 2-prong approach, cardio and abs. No make that a 3-prong approach because it’s all-for-not if you’re neglecting diet. Diet is something you need to work on every day at least a little.
Fat accumulates not only on the outside but the inside too. Around the organs: the kidneys, liver, intestines. The fat on the inside is more difficult to get rid of, requiring consistency over a longer period. But rest assured, it does go.
Try Intermittent Fasting. On every lever this remarkable diet is powerfully transformative. Balancing blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, naturally producing HGH, devouring fat! You’ll not only look better but live longer too.
See you at yoga tonight, Abs tomorrow morning, Weight-lifting Tuesdays.

There’s no reason you can’t have a perfect back. If you do the right things. Doing nothing, or not enough, for years and decades, is the real cause of most chronic back problems.
Stretching and strengthening. I can’t say this enough. If you stretch without strengthening, or vice versa, it’s not enough. You have to do both, and continue doing it in perpetuity. The combination of the two will fix your back, probably quicker than you imagine.
My back has never been better. And it hasn’t always been that way. I had what is referred to as a “trick back”. In other words, my back was strong, but would go out for no reason like tying my shoes, and I’d be bed-ridden for a few days.
Now my back is better than it has ever been. Better than in my twenties by far. Here’s what I do to make it that way. If you’re having back problems, you should listen. Because this will change your life.
One yoga class a week. And a quick 6 or 7 minute stretch at least a couple of times a week. That’s the stretching component. The second part, the strengthening, is Abs Class, where we spend a full 15 minutes on back-strengthening exercises.
Give yourself a perfect back. You’re worth it. And don’t forget, a perfect back looks good too. It’s a thing of beauty.
See you at yoga! And Abs! Ciao, Pietro
