The Ultimate Secrets to a Flat Stomach
and Six Pack Abs
by Mike Geary
With this article, I want to show you
why you might be struggling to lose that stubborn stomach fat
that is covering up your abs. These are the main reasons most
people just can not seem to get those six pack abs that
everyone desires. If you haven't already seen me around online
somewhere, I'm the creator of one of the most popular
abdominals and fat loss programs on the internet.
So in this article I want to highlight for you the main points
and strategies that I use to make this program one of the most
effective programs in existance for fully developing your
abdominals as well as getting rid of that stubborn stomach fat
that is covering them up.
Pay attention, because once you get
this stuff right and start using these techniques
regularly, you'll be showing off your ripped abs in no
time flat, whether it's at the beach, at the pool, in the
Just think how great it's going to feel when people are
complimenting you on your washboard stomach!
Alright, here's what make's The
Truth about Six Pack Abs different:
1. The main focus of
this program is NOT abs exercises... And, better yet, this
program consistently get's better results by NOT focusing on
I know that sounds counterintuitive, but the fact of the
matter is that abs exercises are ok, and you do need to do a
certain amount of them to develop the abdominals as best as
possible. But to be honest, most people that are trying to get
better looking abdominals waste WAY too much time training the
abs directly. What you really need to focus on is burning off
the extra fat that is covering them up.
Let's get this straight right now... Abs exercises do NOT burn
fat away from your abs! This can only be accomplished through
a much more effective full body training routine that
maximizes both your metabolic response and your hormonal
response to your workouts. This is the main focus of my Truth
about Six Pack Abs Program.
Now don't get me wrong. It wouldn't be an abs program if I
didn't show you the most effective exercises for developing
your abdominals. I also give you detailed instructions and
photos on how to do them right. But like I said, the main
focus of this program is the secret method that I use to
compile the full body training routines and maximize your fat
This is the main reason that this program will be much more
effective for you than any other abs programs you've ever
tried before. You've got my word on that.
2. This program uses none of your
typical boring monotonous cardio routines.
In fact, you don't have to do any typical cardio if you don't
want to! I actually recommend against it.
Seriously, almost every program out there tells you that you
must do endless cardio exercise regularly to lose the body fat
that is covering your abs. Most of them tell you to do 30-60
minutes of cardio exercise 3-4 days/week in addition to your
strength training routines.
The truth is that this is not only unnecessary, but it can
actually be counterproductive if you're really trying to get
as lean as possible, as quick as possible. I go into this in
much more detail in the book, but basically this all comes
back to the aspects of your metabolic rate, how much lean
muscle you have, the hormonal response in your body from the
exercise, and the residual calorie burn in the hours and days
following your workouts. And normal boring cardio routines are
all wrong when it comes to maximizing these effects!
Now you're probably thinking that since I'm against typical
boring cardio routines, then that must simply mean I'm a
proponent of interval training. Yes, as a matter of fact, I
believe interval training is MUCH better than typical cardio.
However, I also use a special exercise combination and
sequencing in my Truth about Six Pack Abs Program that gets
even more powerful fat loss and muscle defining results than
interval training. And that's saying something, because
interval training kicks butt! You'll find out how this system
works inside the program.
Want proof that you don't need typical long-duration
Well, first of all, I actually took a course recently that was
devoted to scientific research into why steady-pace cardio
exercise is actually not that effective at strengthening the
heart. The focus of the research basically boiled down to the
fact that the heart needs to be trained in a wide variety of
ranges to actually be truly strengthened and ready for all the
various stresses that life throws at it. Not only that, but
steady-pace cardio was also proven in the research studies to
be far less effective in the long term at reducing body fat
To give you a real life example... Personally, I haven't done
what most people would label "cardio" in probably well over 5
years, and I'm actually leaner now and have a lower bodyfat %
now than years ago when I did cardio regularly. Not only that,
but my heart is in the best condition ever, as I now
consistently have the resting heart rate of an elite athlete
at about 50 bpm (remember that lower is better). My resting
heart rate used to be in the mid to upper 60's years ago when
I used to do typical cardio and strength training routines
like most people do.
This improvement in both body fat % and reduced resting heart
rate is the direct result of the unique training methods I
used in developing the programs in The Truth about Six Pack
3. This program does NOT revolve around having to use
supplements or "fat-loss" pills.
Trust me when I say that for the most part, about 95% of
supplements are a complete waste of your hard earned money.
I've been approached by supplement companies in the past
looking for me to promote their products for them, and
offering me a lot of money to do so. Well, you know what I do?
I tell them to shove it! Seriously, I won't promote something
to my readers that I don't honestly believe in.
The fact is, I've learned over the years through my own
experience, as well as hundreds of my clients and friends
experiences with supplements, that they are really just
selling you the dream that their pill or powder will be some
"magical" solution to your struggle with getting that lean
ripped body that you've been wanting for years. In reality,
most supplements do nothing at all to help you improve your
Don't get me wrong... I'm not totally
bashing supplement companies, but like I said, about 95% of
the products they promote are worthless, and won't create any
noticeable changes in your body. I will admit that there can
be a place for meal replacements for people that can't find
the time to prepare or pack all of their real food meals. I
also admit that I do think a high quality, fast digesting
protein like whey protein can be useful to mix into your
But the fact is that real food is always better for you than
processed supplements (as long as you pick the right "real
foods"). Anybody that tells you otherwise has either been
brainwashed by all of the propaganda and super-hyped up ads
that the supplement companies have spread throughout every
magazine on the planet, or they have financial ties to selling
supplements in some way themselves.
I have dedicated myself to not being lured into the lucrative
world of selling supplements. Even though I could make a lot
more money selling supplements than by selling my abs program,
it's just plain against my morals to rip people off like that.
Frankly, it amazes me that most people are more willing to
spend $30, $40, even $50 or more on a bottle of pills or
powder than to spend $30 on a comprehensive training and
nutrition guide like this Truth about Six Pack Abs program,
which will set them up for life on training programs and
dietary secrets that will keep them lean and ripped for life.
The only thing that bottle of pills or powder is going to do
is give you expensive urine! You make the choice.
4. This program does not revolve
around using any fancy "ab machines" or "ab gadgets".
In case you were suckered into buying any of these worthless
ab belts, loungers, rockers, or any other worthless ab gadget
or machine, I have bad news... You were ripped off!
The truth is that most of these machines and gadgets are not
the best way to develop the abdominal muscles. Sure, some of
them may help a tiny bit with strengthening the abdominals,
but they are far less effective than some of the best floor,
hanging, and standing abs exercises.
Also, more importantly, virtually all of these abs machines,
belts, and gadgets do absolutely nothing to burn fat off of
the abdominal area!
Again, losing the fat that's covering up your abs can only be
accomplished with a smart nutritional program, and a well
designed progressional training program that increases your
metabolism and stimulates your fat-burning hormones in your
body. Achieving this is simple once you understand the secrets
I reveal in the Truth about Six Pack Abs program.
5. This program does not include some sort of fad diet or
gimmicky diet trend.
None of that here. I promise you won't be given any more crap
about needing to eat "low-carb" or "low-fat", or low or high
anything, for that matter. The nutritional secrets I reveal in
this program go against all of the authors and companies out
there that are trying to lure you in with another one of their
The fact is that they need to come up with some sort of
different "angle", so that their diet program appears unique
and gives the media something to talk about. That's why
there's always some gimmick, like low-fat, or low-carb, or
high protein, or the "colors diet", the "low glycemic index
diet", the fasting diet, the cabbage diet, and so on.
Instead, I wanted to give you the truth about what it really
takes to eat a nutritious diet that not only will have you
burning off that stubborn belly fat, but will also have you
feeling full of energy every single day. If you don't already
feel energetic and alive every single day, then you are
missing out, because it is an awesome feeling!
The great thing is that once you start eating balanced and
healthy all the time, you virtually eliminate cravings
altogether. Personally, I used to crave sweets constantly
before I adopted the nutritious diet that I currently eat.
Now, I can honestly say I can't remember the last craving I
had. It had to be more than 5 years ago... no joke!
Not only that, but I actually enjoy everything I eat way more
than I used to years ago when I ate a lot of junk. Does that
mean that I never eat burgers, or pizza, or beer? Of course
not... We all have a social life. In fact, there are actually
very healthy ways and variations to preparing healthier
burgers and healthier pizza that I occasionally use.
