  • What's going on here?

  • Just thinking about my future

  • Yeah, your future is another set.

  • Previously, Evan and I trained like superheroes,

  • now, we're back and we're getting abs.

  • I gained some injures on my shoulders on my biceps,

  • I did have a little abs showing,

  • but it wasn't like raging six-pack.

  • So this time, I really excited to see how far I can go.

  • I think nutrition, is gonna be way more stretch

  • changing my eating habit was hard the first time around,

  • and can't even imagine what's gonna be like now.

  • So our trainer Steve Zim was great,

  • he tell us everything we need to know about fitness.

  • We're going back to him to get ripped again.

  • Abs, core muscles.

  • I think it's gonna be hard core.

  • Hi, I'm Steve Zim, and we're here in my gym,

  • "A Tighter U" fitness studio, in Culver city.

  • And next six weeks, I'm gonna have Kelsey and Evan

  • get their dream outs.

  • This time there's gonna be seven days of work out,

  • two of the days are just cardio.

  • I was kind of hoping it'd be very similar to last time,

  • we took it a step up.

  • You gotta put your time in it

  • it gonna be at least 20-25 minutes of abs,

  • every time you come in.

  • We're gonna have to do full work outs, too.

  • This isn't just abs, it's part of the story.

  • We got everything's gonna fit in the place.

  • When it comes to abs, you got to think of it

  • in four parts, we've got upper, middle, lower and sides.

  • Everybody likes the muffin top an ab,

  • where they just a lot of crunches,

  • well let's squeeze everything down.

  • We're don't like to open everything up,

  • very important if we teach you how to

  • control you abs, and then lean them out

  • and not bolt them up,

  • and we don't just do sit-ups without weight,

  • you need to add weight.

  • You add weight to everything else we do

  • in the gym, why don't we add weight

  • to the sit-up?

  • With Kelsey what we're trying to achieve are

  • the Elevens.

  • She doesn't want to over develop the muscles

  • in her stomach, but she wants to have the nice line

  • that separates.

  • She's got a flat stomach, but she wants take it to

  • another level.

  • With Evan, he wants to get those cut abs,

  • where you go, "WOW... Boom Boom Boom!"

  • and that is a different kind of work out.

  • And with Evan, especially, he's gonna use a lot of

  • weight on his abs.

  • Abs are three layers of muscle,

  • people don't realize that.

  • So we have to really work it as if we were

  • would work another muscle.

  • We use the Hollywood Supps BCAAs,

  • and melatonin.

  • This keeps your body from cannibalizing muscle,

  • when we're dieting really hard,

  • a lot of times what happens is muscle

  • starts to break down.

  • We can't have that happen.

  • The melatonin helps you sleep deep,

  • the deeper you sleep, the more recovery you get.

  • You're rejuvenated, you're ready to go again.

  • This is the way, we do abs, let's get to it.

  • At the end of the first day of training,

  • Steve straight up told me,

  • we're gonna have to stop here

  • because you're not gonna be able to

  • get out of that tomorrow.

  • If we continue going , you won't be able to

  • feel you abs tomorrow, you'll be like

  • "Ugh..."

  • And I was like, Steve, we've done this before,

  • and like, it's not gonna be that bad.

  • Oh, god, I can't move.

  • So yes the first week was painful,

  • again, I literally rolled sideways out of bed.

  • Steve really challenged me the first week,

  • I was feeling like hot fire ants

  • all over my abs.

  • And I thought all the exercise for the abs

  • would be similar to the ones we did before.

  • Breathing, it's different, stretching it's different.

  • We would add weights, he made me do

  • a lot of crazy exercises.

  • It was like doing the circuits.

  • Giggling is hard, when your abs hurt,

  • and I giggle a lot, can you tell?

  • What if I go out, like have some wine,

  • a like a meal with my friends one night.

  • It's that gonna ruin it?

  • I swear to you, if you drink,

  • tomorrow they won't look the same.

  • -Just in one day, -In one day

  • You'll blow, it's really important that you

  • stick to the food, you stick to the water,

  • you stick to everything I give you

  • because otherwise, we're not gonna see

  • what you want to see.

  • I'm not really sorry, I'm just being honest.

  • To get abs, you have to be really tight

  • on your nutrition.

  • No processed sugar, sugar is a number one thing.

  • We want to keep our carbs, the vegetables,

  • and fruits.

  • Water is your number one best remover fat

  • from your body.

  • We have to drink water.

  • We want to keep our proteins up,

  • we want to make sure we're eating

  • enough calories that are our body is not

  • losing muscle, but it is tearing down back

  • Because when you go so low, you're body

  • starts to eat its own muscle.

  • And when you eat muscle, it's not

  • gonna develop into six-pack.

  • All we're doing is gonna get you tiny.

  • Do not starve yourselves please,

  • then you're not gonna make good muscle.

  • I knew that diet is the way you can mess up

  • getting abs.

  • Food is very precious, all the food that I didn't finish,

  • all the snacks I hesitated to eat,

  • and I never knew I was gonna miss

  • the smell of alcohol.

  • You know a lot of people hate the smell of

  • alcohol, it smells so good!

  • What is happening to me?

  • So last night I had a dream that I

  • kept eating these airhead extremes.

  • I'm having dreams about my diet!

  • There were so many company events

  • that were happening.

  • There's always booze, there's always cheese,

  • there's always snacks.

  • How's that pasta?

  • So good, Evan, are you sure you don't want one?

  • Can I eat or drink anything at this event?

  • No, the answer is no.

  • The answer is no

  • It's absolutely...

  • Crap

  • The social aspect was really difficult,

  • it's really hard when all of your friends are

  • enjoying meals together, and you want to

  • participate.

  • They all look at you, like crazy.

  • Why are the best things in the world the worst for you?

  • Ah! I hate this diet!

  • So it's week 3, and unfortunately

  • I injured my ankle, it's been in pain for last three days,

  • and hard to use.

  • My body wasn't looking as fit as it had been before,

  • it felt like they were backtracking.

  • And I was getting really frustrated,

  • and Evan's allowed to eat brown rice,

  • so I thought was allowed to eat brown rice.

  • But our diets are different because the results

  • were looking forward different.

  • So, I kept kind of minimizing what I could eat

  • to the point where I got really frustrated

  • in the middle because all I was eating,

  • was grilled chicken with nothing on it,

  • and broccoli.

  • And that was it, that was all I was eating.

  • I'm going insane, I'm going insane.

  • Kelsey is going through a period where she's

  • getting stuck on food,

  • she's not feeling good about herself,

  • she hurt her ankle,

  • her abs, didn't look good.

  • She hasn't done the cardio, so she has a

  • little layer.

  • It's more puffs, it's not really pat.

  • She's depressed about that, we ran over

  • a whole new food thing,

  • we revamped her, we're getting her excited,

  • and we're gonna figure our another way of doing cardio

  • until her ankle's better.

  • We're gonna use the row machine and other things

  • she uses her upper body, so that we don't

  • get her stuck.

  • What Kelsey's going through happens to everyone,

  • I promise you.

  • Don't go crazy, really start to think.

  • Slowly but surely passed by that plateau,

  • it's easy to look at yourself in the mirror everyday,

  • and not see the progress,

  • and to get frustrated.

  • For me progress was a lot better by third week maybe,

  • started to see abs on my body,

  • and it was crazy, everything was going smoothly.

  • My diet was good, exercises were good,

  • I was getting enough sleep.

  • Until, I find out I was losing weight

  • and because I started as such a low body fat,

  • it's not ideal for me to lose weight

  • because if I'm losing weight

  • that means I was losing muscles.

  • I'm kind of freaked out because I really really

  • did not want to shrink.

  • With Evan, what we're noticing that he's coming down

  • maybe too quick.

  • We have to say, whoa! Let's hold on a second.

  • What do we need to look at?

  • Maybe we should add a hundred calories

  • to your food.

  • Maybe we should come down a little

  • on the cardio.

  • You have to self adjust as you're going on

  • because I don't want you to do a hundred

  • miles an hour.

  • A lot of people they eat very little once again,

  • they do too much cardio.

  • And yes we see the abs but yes the muscles

  • starts to go away.

  • We want to make sure his proteins

  • are at a high level,

  • so we don't break down the muscle.

  • It's so important.

  • So finally the middle ground where I'm not

  • eating too much,

  • but I'm not starving myself,

  • was very very difficult for me.

  • Thankfully as the time went by,

  • I figure out what to do, and I stayed on the right track.

  • Week 5, I was planning some cosplay

  • I decided that I was going to wear a crap top,

  • like walking around with your midriff exposed,

  • it was scary I've been working so hard,

  • I wanted to look good,

  • and I got pictures back.

  • And I was super surprised that my abs are showing,

  • so it was so crazy!

  • All my friends like blown away.

  • One of those things were sometimes you have to

  • step back, and you don't see the progress,

  • but when your friends don't see you for a little while,

  • they see the progress.

  • I am changing, my body is changing.

  • I'm working hard, doing the proper diet,

  • that's healthy, and getting the results.

  • I was so excited for the final day,

  • 'cause one, I get to eat fried chicken again,

  • and two, I was eager to find out

  • how much I've changed.
