Our Truth About Six Pack Abs review takes a look at a popular program that promises you a flat stomach and ripped abs – so is it just another over hyped product or a winning recipe for a six pack?
Hmm, now call me a septic but the internet is full of sites and ads promising the ultimate, flat, chiseled midsection – usually accompanied by claims that if you just buy the product they’re selling you’ll turn into a Calvin Klein model look alike in a matter of days!
There’s also usually some guff about the author having some “ultimate secret” that no one else knows about that makes his or her program so much more effective than all the others out there.
Now most of these programs simply repackage the same old information that you can get for free anywhere on the internet – so what makes The Truth About Six Pack Abs any different?
Good question, because if you take a peek at the pitch page it looks like the usual interminably long advertising spiel that invariably gets me clicking away to pastures more interesting.
Does anyone really ever read these War and Peace wannabes?
Cut through the ad man’s hyperbole and our The Truth About Six Pack Abs review would suggest that what you actually get is for our money, one of the potentially most effective – and best value for money – online exercise and diet programs we’ve come across.
Let me explain…
The Truth About Six Pack Abs Review
Guess what? If you want great abs, one of the least effective ways to get them is by doing ab exercises alone.
Simply put, if your abs are covered by a layer of fat no amount of crunching is going to give you the washboard look you crave.
Nor is endless hours of cardio or fad diets.
The only way to get the results you’re after is a balanced program of good nutrition, strength training, some smart cardio (as opposed to hours on a treadmill) and the judicious use of some effective ab exercises.
Essentially, this is the premise of Mike Geary’s approach to achieving a six pack and the 106 pages of The Truth About Six Pack Abs tells you how to combine these strategies to greatest effect.
Now, for anyone with a background in exercise physiology and fitness training this may come as no surprise, but for your average person spending hours at the gym for little reward it may come as a blinding flash of insight.
This philosophy is nothing new – I was taught many of the principles that Geary outlines in his book years ago on various post graduate courses, but its all put together in an easy to follow, accessible and interesting format in The Truth About Six Pack Abs.
You get a science lesson on the anatomy of your abs, 20+ effective ab exercises, strength training workouts for beginners through to some pretty advanced workouts that left me sore and gasping for air!
You also get some smart advice on how to eat to support your workout and weight loss regime.
Our The Truth About Six Pack Abs review would suggest that it’s a particularly good program for busy people as you can get some great results from no more than 2-3 workouts a week of around 45-60 minutes duration.
I would suggest that to get the best results you’re going to need to visit the gym at some point as weight training is a big part of the program.
However, there are plenty of exercises and routines that you can do at home using your body weight and minimal equipment so a gym membership is optional.
The Truth About Six Pack Abs Review – Does it Work…?
There are plenty of testimonials from satisfied users on the sales site, but for me my training and experience in the health and fitness field is a better guide.
If you’ve read some of the articles on this site then you’ll be aware that strength training – building some muscle – is the key to effective, long term weight loss and maintenance.
Muscle is far more metabolically active than fat and put simply, the more lean tissue you have, the more calories you burn at rest and play.
Sure, cardio may burn more fat calories whilst you’re working out than resistance training, but it’s strength training that will encourage your body to burn more calories – and fat – in the longer term.
Mike Geary uses these basic principles to good effect and through an approach akin to circuit training – combining high intensity strength and cardio training in the same workouts and minimizing rest periods, he delivers short, sharp workouts that maximize muscle building, calorie expenditure and fat loss and minimize the time it takes to do so.
Our The Truth About Six Pack Abs review leaves me in absolutely no doubt that if you follow the routines that Geary sets out in the book you’ll get results.
My only criticisms are that there could be more emphasis on nutrition. There aren’t really any diet plans to follow, more solid advice on what you should and shouldn’t eat.
Whilst there’s a version for men and one for woman, the emphasis on strength training and building muscle will inevitably put some people off, particularly some women who may find it all a bit macho.
Which would be a shame as The Truth About Six Pack Abs is potentially as effective for women as it is for men.
And then there will be those who may find it all just too much like hard work…and it is hard work, believe me! But you get little of any value for no effort at all…
The Truth About Six Pack Abs Review – The Bottom Line…?
I’m rarely impressed by most of the fast fix programs out there, but our The Truth About Six Pack Abs review has left me quietly impressed.
Geary clearly knows his stuff and comes across as a knowledgeable, credible fitness expert that really does want to help his customers get the best results they can for their diet and exercise efforts.
If you put the effort in, I’m confident that you’ll begin to see results quickly…and that’s exactly the motivation that most people need.
The Truth About Six Pack Abs is available as an e-book for immediate download and costs $39.99.
There are lots of freebies to sweeten the deal – seven to be precise – but I wouldn’t bother reading them as all you need to succeed is in the main e-book.
You can also upgrade to the “Deluxe” package, which includes another e-book – and lots more freebies – called The Diet Solution Program at an offer price of $27.95, which bumps the total price to $67.90.
Our The Truth About Six Pack Abs review verdict? A winner!
If you’re going to buy one exercise and diet program, then you won’t go far wrong with The Truth About Six Pack Abs!
