"Do an abs workout and then jump on the treadmill, and see what happens," suggests Bas. How this works: "By filling your abs with lactic acid, they "blow up" and start pushing against the lungs so now it's much harder to breathe freely. When you do a biceps routine first and then have to hit a bag, it's hard because you only just "pulled," making your biceps "blow up" and requiring you to "push." Those two don't go well together." Consequently, Bas bases his routines on what he calls "pushing-pulling-stamina."
