3 Simple Truths You Can Immediately Use To Get Six-Pack Abs & A Rock-Hard Body: An Easy To Follow Guide & My Personal Commitment To You

May 07, 2012

Are you confused about how to get six-pack abs and a rock hard body?

You’re not to blame.

Last time I checked, there were 26,300,000 results for “Workout Plans” on Google.

The words “Diet Plans” brought up 89,300,000 results. [abtest goal="2"]

I am blown away by this.

Give me the “needle & haystack” challenge any day! Sheesh!

It seems we are bombarded with exercise and diet information from every direction.

Who do we trust? How do we know what actually works?

A Little About My Story (I’ll get to the plan shortly…)

Before we get into the exact strategies for how you can create a rock hard body & six-pack abs… let me share a bit of my story.

For the majority of my life I have been that guy that couldn’t gain muscle. I remember in High School working out like a dog and getting only minimal results. I would drive down to the Y every day to pump iron and be there sometimes for 2 hours.

I tracked my results, stayed consistent and brought my “A-game,” yet low and behold… had very little progress.

I settled on the belief that I simply didn’t have the right genetics to get ripped like Brad Pitt (in the movie “Troy”) or Joey Lawrence (Remember him from the show Blossom? The dude is totally shredded).

The most frustrating times were when I would go to social gatherings.

The conversation would turn to exercise and someone would almost always say,

Hey Todd, do you workout?

What?!

Do I workout?! Do I WORKOUT?!

Arghhhhhh!!!

This would be my kiss of death.

I would think, “Why the heck am I even doing this?!”

Now, I’m not so vain to think that the only reason to workout is to look good. I know there are lots of benefits.

Yet for crying out loud. Is it wrong to want to look buff & desire someone to notice and say, “Dang Todd! What’s your workout routine?

Yet instead… I got… “Do you workout?” Doh!

I have a confession…

I have a bit of a confession to make.

It’s kind of embarrassing but I’m going to be open and share it any way.

For much of my life I have studied exercise and nutrition. I have even gone through personal training school and nutrition classes. I have devoted myself to learning the proper way to eat & train for maximum health.

Yet, even after my hours & hours of learning, I still didn’t know the exact plan for getting the visible results I was looking for.

I had tried so many plans before (most recently being Timothy Ferriss’ 4-Hour Body approach). I even took $200 worth of supplements that were designed to give my body everything it needed in order to pack on major muscle and get ripped. Well, after 30 days… nada.

Don’t get me wrong, I was still pretty fit. Yet I was looking for that “totally ripped look” that you see a lot of the celebrities have.

How to get in fitness model shape without spending hours at the gym…

Awhile back, I read an article on the internet that said that fitness models don’t workout more than you and I. They actually spend less time in the gym… typically an hour or so, 4X per week.

So how do they get such incredible results?

The key is in the plan.

They know the exact type of workouts AND exactly what to eat in order to get a jaw-dropping body.

At first, this was hard for me to believe because I was working out so hard and eating nutritious food (my wife and I are mostly macrobiotic).

I thought to myself, “Could I be missing something?”

Well… long story short… I was.

That article lead me to an individual named Mike Geary. He has created a program that has helped thousands of people get the results I was looking for all these years.

I decided to invest in it and it has made all the difference in the world. The picture at the top of the page (and the one to the side) is how I look now… 

I feel like I have finally found the missing link.

1. I am going to share with you 3 key lessons I learned from the program that will immediately help you get rock-hard AND…

2. I will also tell you about my personal commitment to walk hand-in-hand with you to help you get the body you are searching for (see below).

3 Essentials For Getting A Rock Hard Body…

1. Carbohydrates: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Ever since The Atkins Diet has swept the nation, carbs have received a bad reputation. People on the diet have lost a lot of weight, then claimed that it was all because they cut out carbs. The reason they achieved results is because they eliminated the bad carbs… along with the good ones.

The truth is that you need carbohydrates in your diet.

The exciting fact that I learned is that you can use carbohydrates as a tool on your journey to getting ripped… and it has everything to do with insulin.

When carbs are broken down by your system it increases the level of sugar in your bloodstream.  Your pancreas secretes a chemical called insulin to remove this sugar and put it into (1) fat stores, (2) muscle glycogen stores or (3) liver glycogen stores.

If the second two are already full, then your body will put it in fat storage.

If you eat foods that are high on the glycemic index, your body has to release more insulin to counter-balance the increased sugar in your blood stream. And this sugar needs to go somewhere.

For most people, it gets dumped right into fat storage.

In the program, Mike goes in detailed explanation for the right combinations of carbs, protein and fats in order to eliminate this “sugar dump” and also teaches you how to keep your levels even so that you are burning fat all the time and supporting muscle development.

 

2. Eat More, Not Less

This principle may be counter-intuitive for most people.

This isn’t you, is it…?

You want to lose weight, so you plan out your meals like this:

Breakfast: A light breakfast consisting of maybe oatmeal and yogurt or cottage cheese.

Lunch: You know salads are healthy for you so you bring a big salad with you to work with light or fat-free dressing.

Dinner: By dinner, you are so hungry that you eat a huge meal because you are “starving-to-death”.

Repeat cycle again until…

You get frustrated because you are not getting results and may actually be GAINING WEIGHT.

Do you want to know the reason why?

It has everything to do with your metabolism.

When you eat infrequent meals, your Resting Metabolic Rate or RMR decreases. This is the rate that your body burns calories while at rest (not exercising).

In everyday terms, this is what happens….

Your body notices that you are not eating as much so it says, “Whoa, we better slow down the rate we are burning calories and conserve what we do have.” In one sense, it goes into starvation mode and tries to store fat. For most of human history, we have had to rely on this system to stay alive. We needed our RMR to decrease so we could make it through the winter months. However…

*When you are trying to get a body that’s ripped, this is not what you want!*

Mike lays out the exact plan for what & when to eat in order to supercharge your RMR so that you are burning tons of calories, even when you’re not working out.

 

3. “Healthy” Foods That Actually Make You Store Fat

This was the kicker for me, since I was a healthy eater long before I knew what I know now.

There are actually healthy foods that are not conducive to getting a rock-hard body.

I thought to myself, could this be true?

After going through the program I learned a lot about the properties of foods and which ones to avoid.

I’ve been incorporating these into my regular diet plan and have noticed incredible results. 

And these foods will help no matter if you have a large belly… or a smaller one, but want to get so cut that heads at the beach will turn and say…

Dang! He definitely works out!

The Full Low-Down On My Experience

How Fast Did I See Results?

I started following Mike’s program on April 26th. As soon as I downloaded it, I totally engulfed the material. I took vigorous notes and started incorporating everything 100%. And in less than 2 weeks I saw noticeable results.

My abs became more clearly defined than they ever had been before.

My chest and biceps were looking really cut (where before they had some definition, but certainly not “wow” factor).

I was blown away.

I’m not saying this is typical. I was already working out really hard and had a baseline for good nutritional practices.

The problem that I was experiencing before I started the program was that I didn’t fully have all the right information to achieve my goals. As soon I incorporated Mike’s guidelines into my regimen, my body finally got exactly what it needed to become ripped.

How Fast Can You Expect Results?

I am not going to say you’ll turn into Brad Pitt in 2 weeks. Developing a rock-hard body takes work & time. If anyone tells you that total transformation will happen over night… run for the hills. They are lying.

As a society we typically want the fast result. As the slogan for Burger King so accurately displays, “My way, right away.”

Although, it does take time to get amazing results, most people (if they follow Mike’s recommendations) should see transformation occurring within 30 days.

Let’s be honest… how hard is it?

I want to emphasize this point: getting in incredible shape is not easy. No one can watch television all day and expect a rock-hard body & six-pack abs.

It takes work.

However, some commonly held myths hold many people from even starting the journey.

Myth 1: I need to spend hours at the gym.

I’ll be straight forward and tell you that I weight train (home-based & mostly body weight exercises) about 4-5 days per week and each session lasts 20-30 min (max!). I’m dead serious on this. When you increase the intensity of your workouts, you can decrease the time.

HOWEVER… my workouts are tough.

Some times I cry during them because my muscles hurt so bad. But I get in and out. No pansy-footin’ around.

Myth 2: I need to eat squirrel nuts and wheat grass to get ripped

You can enjoy an incredibly tasty diet and still decrease your body fat enough to get ripped. It comes down to having the right information so that you know how to manage what you put in your mouth.

I’m not telling you that you can gorge on Butterfinger candy bars (sorry Bart). Yet, you don’t need to be a raw-food vegan that lives in total isolation, either.

Now It’s Your Turn…

They say that knowledge is power.

For me, I felt like I spun my tires for years without the right information.

Mike’s program gave me those answers and have proven the results.

Full Disclosure –  In full disclosure (and proud to say)… I have chosen to be an affiliate of Mike’s program. This means that if you decide that his program is right for you, I’ll receive a commission for referring you.

      Hi Joe,

      Glad you are enjoying the articles. That’s encouraging for me to hear. I’m working on a post for next week where I have asked some of the greatest athletes of all time what one of their biggest sacrifices was in getting to the top. Some of the answers are really insightful. Should launch it Monday.

      I haven’t done insanity but hear it’s great. The HIIT style is definitely one of my favorites. Keep me posted on how you are doing with it.

      Peace!

      Todd
