Whats up! So in today’s video I’m back at Iron Gym in Santa Monica with Jamo Nezzar debating who is the best fitness model in the world. This subject is ALWAYS controversial because some people out there are ‘sensitive’…but I really don’t care. I’m going to talk about it anyway! Just FYI…all of the ideas […]

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!
