A Sneak Peek Inside The Truth About Abs Program
Here is a small look inside only a few of the many eBooks you receive.
How Does “The Truth About Abs” Work?
According to Geary, by eating fewer calories than you need on a daily basis, your body will be forced to burn fat for fuel.
By burning the fat around your midsection, as well as the rest of your body, the outline of your muscles will become more visible and that’s how you get a visible six-pack. The diet in the Truth About Six-Pack Abs is a low carb, high protein, healthy fat-rich diet which is very effective for fat burning.
By limiting carb intake, your body is much more likely to burn fat for fuel and eating plenty of protein means you can still get to consume fairly large meals which will help keep you feeling full. The presence of healthy fats further enhances fat burning – yes, ironically eating the right fats can help you burn fat. Basically it trains your body to burn fat as fuel, instead of carbohydrates.
As your fat levels diminish, the Truth About Six-Pack Abs workouts target your abs from a variety of angles, making them stronger and larger and more visible. Not forgetting the rest of your body, the workouts also target rest of your body to further enhance fat burning and work your midsection indirectly with exercises like squats and deadlifts.
Exercise instructions are supplied and are demonstrated in pictures featuring a male and a female model so you can see them from both body structural perspectives.
Geary favour full body workout for maximum calorie burning effect and prefers free weights and body weight exercises over resistance training machines because, he says, you’ll burn more calories that way.
Geary is also a fan of cardio but does not believe that slow paced cardio is the most effective way to burn fat. Instead, he prefers his cardio to be short and sharp and in the form of interval training which will burn a lot more fat. An additional benefit of interval training is that start/stop stye workouts actually take less time than uninterrupted steady paced 60 minute cardio sessions. you Just have to be prepared to put in effort, because trust me it can be hard work.
