Go back… Jamin: I’m sure you get this question all the time, but what are your feelings about steroids and drugs? Are they necessary to build a cover model type physique? Obi: I am definitely against anybody taking steroids just to achieve a certain physique. It sends a wrong message to the young kids out [...]

Today, I bring you part 2 of the conversation between Max Wettstein (Men’s Health abs model and fitness expert) and myself.
Jamin: There are literally hundreds of ways to work your core but most people only do sit-ups and crunches, which I rarely do anymore. What is your favorite exercise to train your core?
Max: My favorite core-specific exercise is plank-variations and the Vacuum-pose (which targets the Transverse Abdominus). My core is constantly engaged to some degree during all of the sports I play though, so rarely do I have to focus on it. The posing & flexing I’m required to do on shoot-days also really hits my abs & core hard! I also apply ‘Abs-Awareness’ all day every day!
Jamin: Ok so I’m sure everyone wants to know how a Men’s Health cover model trains his abs. Would you mind sharing one of your favorite ab workouts?
Max: I apply ‘Abs-Awareness’ throughout my life! Full-body, functional fitness & playing sports are primarily how I train my abs. Also, isometric flexing & posing during shoots & shoot-prep is next. But my favorite abs-specific exercises are plank-variations & hyper-extended crunches while laying back on a Swiss Ball. I do these until I feel the burn & to failure!
I’ve got an AWESOME interview for you to kick off the weekend (especially if your goal is to get LEANER, more MUSCULAR, and get a fitness model’s physique)…
I recently sat down with my good buddy & Men’s Health Abs model Max Wettstein…have you heard of this dude?
You have probably seen him on Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, & Maximum Fitness magazine covers. Plus he was on the cover of the Men’s Health Ultimate Abs Guide last year.
Anyways, I always wondered if he was the real deal, until I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with him a short while ago…
…and let me be the first one to say, Max isn’t one of those boy band, pretty boy, don’t know how to train fitness model types. This dude knows his stuff and his warrior style workouts prove his toughness.
Plus the guy is an athlete and that is always cool in my book!
