Unique 6-Pack Abs Health Secrets

Mike Geary a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Certified Personal Trainer who is also the Author of the top selling book called ‘Truth About 6-Pack Abs’ was recently interviewed by Men’s Health Magazine Training Advisor, Craig Ballantyne on his unique 6-Pack Abs health secrets.

6-Pack Abs Health Secrets

Here is a summary of what was discussed.

CB: Mike, let’s start off with some background on the types of people you train, and your training background.

MG: Craig, I’ve been a Certified Personal Trainer for almost a decade now, and in recent years, I’ve become certified as a Nutrition Specialist as well. As for the types of people I train… I’ve trained everybody from skinny teenagers looking to add some bulk to their frame, to middle-aged housewives and businessmen looking to lose body fat, to senior citizens looking to get stronger and leaner in their golden years.

CB: You have a site, The Truth About Abs. So…what the heck is the truth?

MG: Well Craig, from what I see on a daily basis, one of the most common fitness goals people have is to get a flatter stomach and if possible, achieve some sort of a “six pack abs” appearance to their midsection. Unfortunately, most people struggle for years without ever achieving this goal.

Instead, I see so many people waste so much of their time on worthless abs exercises, and falling for every gimmick product that comes onto their TV screen promising them a 6-pack in only 2 minutes a day while sitting on their couch.

To be honest, seeing so many people over the years waste their hard earned money on all of these worthless ab gadgets, machines, and bogus fat loss pills was really getting under my skin.

That’s why I developed my Truth about Six Pack Abs Program. Over the last couple years, this program I developed has gained popularity worldwide, and has now recently become the most popular abs program on the internet with over 200,000 people in over 150 countries using my system.

So what’s the truth? The truth is that people are looking in the wrong direction to achieve this goal… abs exercises are NOT the answer to six pack abs! Sounds counter intuitive I know. In fact, ab-specific exercises are the LEAST important training aspect in getting a six pack.

Most people think there must be some magical “underground” abs exercise that is going to finally get them their six-pack after years of struggling.

The fact is, the real solution to seeing a visible six-pack is simply bringing your body fat % down to a low enough level to where the abs become visible. Most people already have a six pack hiding underneath their stomach fat and don’t know it. This is generally about 10% body fat or lower for men, and about 16-18% body fat for women from my experience.

Heck, even my 7-year old nephew has a six pack… do you think he got that by doing “abs exercises”? No way! He has a six pack because his body fat % is extremely low since he’s so active running around playing all day at his age.

So the most important aspect to getting visible abs is actually a properly designed full body training program, combined with good nutrition that can be maintained for life (instead of a short-term gimmick diet).

CB: For a beginner, how much focus needs to be on abs? What other abs exercises would you give them for fat loss?

MG: For beginners, I generally start them off with the most basic bodyweight exercises such as bw squats, bw lunges, bw step-ups, pushups, inverted body rows, along with basic dumbbell exercises like overhead presses, rows, etc. We also work on body stabilizing exercises like planks and side planks and a few stability ball exercises to make sure they’ve learned to properly engage their entire “core” area in stablizing the body.

CB: What type of cardio/interval training do you use for fat loss?

MG:The programs I design are almost entirely based on high intensity resistance training instead of cardio. In fact, my resistance training workouts get people sweating and huffing and puffing much more than any boring cardio workout ever will.

The bottom line based on research as well as my personal experience… cardio is NOT necessary for fat loss! In fact, some of the leanest people I know NEVER do traditional cardio. Personally, I haven’t stepped foot on a treadmill, elliptical machine, or stationary bike in about 8 years and I maintain single digit body fat year round.

Now don’t get me wrong about the cardio thing… in reality, I actually work on exercises that are much tougher and more intense than traditional cardio… I prefer wind sprints, hill sprints, swimming sprints, speed rope jumping, etc to complement my resistance training… all of which are more anaerobic in nature than aerobic.

This type of training stimulates a vastly higher metabolic response in the body than steady pace cardio.

Of course, most people can’t just jump right into doing wind sprints without injury until they’ve gotten themselves into pretty good shape first. I use various resistance training methods and interval training for most people before they are ever ready to even attempt any type of sprinting.
