I've actually nailed the first 4 and pushed it harder and got two more from the top so I have six but still missing the last 2. lol I guess i have to get on a strict diet which i'm failing... late night pizza runs with my boys aint helping.

Didn't watch it, but I don't need to. No reason to buy this, all information is available to you on the interwebs and here. PM me if you need advice. I's a personal trainer.

big genetic component to abs...my brother is a great example...doesn't do any ab workouts, doesn't do cardio and doesn't diet but has a ROCK solid 6 pack...and he isn't a twig either...whether or not your body stores a lot of fat in your midsection naturally is going to be difficult to overcome unless your diet and cardio is on point. ab exercises really don't do jack..you need to lose the fat first.

What I do to cut weight fast in the final phase of a diet/exercise regimen (before vacation or summer):

1. cut a sandwich in four pieces (chicken or turkey) NO condiments, some peppers for flavor
2. those are your meals have a small piece of fruit with two of them
3. in between meals drink lots of green tea with no sugar or sweeteners
4. drink 1.5-2 gallons of water (lose heat through frequent urination)
5. any old multivitamin will do

Workouts:

Focus on chest and muscles not often used to great effect in daily life (chest usually atrophies first)

Total body workout (HIT or High volume)

Squats
Lat Pulldown (or even better Pullover)
Military Press
Dumbbell Fly

HIT = 1 set of about 10 to failure (should get really hard around 5-6, and you should be balls to the wall getting the 10th or trying to)

High volume = 5 sets of 10 or just high reps 1 set

Cardio Circuit:

100 Meter Sprint
500 Meter Row
1/2 mile bike sprint

No rest usually do at least 2 circuits a day

I usually adjust my speed and rest intervals depending on my physical condition.

*** Disclaimer: this works for me, do it at your own risk, and I don't care if you think its rubbish but if you can think of something more effective please do tell.

I do this for as long as I need.

getting abs is about 5% ab workouts 10% cardio 85% diet. Ive wrestled for four years so i know a thing or two about how to construct a solid meal plan and manage weight. Just watch what you put in your body and they will naturally come in after you get your body fat below 10%. My body fat right now is about 8.5% and i only can see the top 4 so its different for everyone

Abs is a PITA. It's the hardest muscle group to define/grow. It also has lots to do with genetics as well. If you diet right, you will probably always be hungry.

There is no way you can keep your muscle and eat a sandwich a day. Where's the protein. Without the protein, your muscle is going bye-bye.

Genetics does play big role in abs too I've realized. not everybody can get abs like The Situation.

I can sell you my see food diet at half the price if any one wants it.



To summarize all the work outs and programs you see for sale. They all work and they all do exact same thing at the end of the day, and that is they exercise your muscles. I can make a video of walking my dog few miles a day and sell it as a short cut to losing weight and staying in shape, and people will buy it.

lol i just feel like people who want fast six packs dont really understand what it really takes to get six packs.

--forgot to add too tho. just if you lift big big doesn't necessarily mean you'll look like a troll. some people are sleepers because they aren't cut.

Its a 12 inch sandwich im talking about cut in four pieces. Lots of turkey in it usually.

Muscle and strength stay put so long as I follow HIT, one set to failure total body workout with no rest. Three times a week.
