I get asked on almost a daily basis what the best exercise or piece of equipment is for great abs and I always jokingly answer: a Fork. We've all heard the saying that abs are made in the kitchen. I'd say it's actually a combination of compound strength exercises like the ones we do at Fuse Fitness Coaching on a daily bases (Squats, Deadlifts, Pull-ups, Lunges, etc.) AND nutrition, specifically foods that help us with digestion and prevent bloating like FIBER.

So normally these blog post come from one of the coaches at Fuse Fitness Coaching. All of you are well aware of the Burn it to Earn FIT Challenge and many of you are participating. This blog is actually an email one teammate sent to the rest of his team and it's too good not to share with everyone.
