Video: Six Pack Secret Exposed!

For the last few weeks, I’ve been participating in YouTube’s Next Trainer program.

As part of the program, we get video assignments. Two weeks ago, we were charged with making a holiday-themed video – and so I made one about the worst holiday foods. This week, we had to create a core-themed video. While an ab workout would be the obvious choice, I thought it would be more interesting to explain why crunches and situps don’t necessarily result in a six pack.

Check out the video and let me know what you think!

  1. This is spot on… and I love the fact that you ask the question explicitly: is it worth it. There are so many sexy and hot body types out there that have firm and flat stomachs, but don’t have a “6-pack”. I think it would help a lot of people to focus less on that particular FEATURE as a goal, and more on just thinking “What can I do to enhance the overall sexiness of my body”.

    One other thing: I’m 38, so having a ripped 8-pack was a lot easier for me 20 years ago than it is now. When people ask me what my diet is to keep this way, I usually get to my second cup of plain oatmeal and dozen egg whites for lunch before they decide for themselves… “NOT worth it!” LOL!

    So true , when I was leaner I had the flattest stomache and my “abs” showed . My fat content was “almost” non- existant , my physician could not get a proper reading … so yeah !! The leaner you are the more they will show… keep up the great work !!

    well-guess what?shocking as it is-we all have six-packs-thats right-we just arent showing them.right now i want the total overall look-then and only then-i can go for the six-pack abs.and im really showing there-thats my answer and its right now for me.look at it this way-women are built differently than men-as vascular a woman can get-her abs wont show like a man.check out physique models then youll see what i mean.for me-its time to hit the gym.

  4. Asking questions are in fact pleasant thing if you are not understanding anything entirely, however this paragraph gives pleasant understanding even.
