Truth About Abs Overview
If you are overweight, then it’s VERY likely that you have stumbled upon Mike Geary’s famous Truth About Abs book.
The reason for this is that it’s heavily promoted by Mike and his affiliates. You will see very many reviews of this program, but most of them just blatantly promotes the book without any grounds, because it will make them money!
Fortunately, Truth About Abs is a good book with very good and solid information on dieting, exercise, motivation, lifestyle etc… And if you follow it you’ll definitely lose weight, BUT… it’s like with most anything…
There are no secrets!
The Truth About Abs doesn’t have a magic formula that’s any different or harder than “Work out harder and eat less food”…
The benefit I see with ordering any kind of fitness book is by doing it right from the start. (Save a bunch of time and money on useless personal trainers, supplements, gym memberships, etc)
Mike does a great job of explaining how Intense Resistance Training done in a circuit fashion (almost like HIIT) will shed fat amazingly fast.
This is true, but it’s nothing we’ve not seen before if we have been reading various books on exercise for the last few years. If you have not however, then Truth About Abs will be an eye opener for sure!
Hey! This is Tom Reinolds here and you’re reading my review of what I really thought about The Truth About Six Pack Abs.
The workouts do not require cardio, because it’s incorporated within the workout (HIIT – bodyweight and resistance training). You see, this stuff works and it works like crazy, so if you’re not familiar with this kind of workout style, then I find that the Truth About Abs is worth a read.
I would not get it if you are already doing some kind of HIIT, weight training and you are on a good solid diet (the BIG three main ingredients for fat loss)…
All you really need to lose fat is:
- Resistance Training/Strength Training to build muscle
- Cardio Activity, preferably High Intense Cardio (HIIT) for fat burn
- Good nutritional plan to lose fat and build muscle (fuel the body)
Not some kind of “magic book” or pill… A book is really just a crutch to get you there without thinking too much. I find it’s easier to have somebody else make up my workout and just DO THE WORK, not having to think of “why I should perform exercise 1 combined with exercises 2,3, and 4 today and not tomorrow, etc)
The thing is that if you are overweight and doing cardio for example, you are missing strength training. If you do strength training and don’t do cardio you’re also missing out.
And if you are only dieting you are pretty much missing the boat entirely. Dieting alone is the biggest mistake if you want to lose fat, but when you combine it with the other two compontents you get an amazing fat burning effect. Mike explains this well in Truth About Abs…
Truth About Abs: The methods
The methods explained in Truth About Abs is designed to SAVE TIME more than anything.
You’ll experience quicker fat loss with shorter amounts of time invested than doing 60 minutes of cardio and 60 minutes of resistance training by combining these workouts into what is called “resistance training curcuits” with super-sets.
It’s based around 6-8 exercises, 3-4 upper and 3-4 lower body exercises or at least (front and back exercises) such as push-up/squat or push-up/pull-up. These are then “super-setted” with each other in a way to get your heart rate up while resting the other body part simultaneously.
So you are doing 1 minute of work, but alternating TWO 30 second exercises that have nothing to do with each other, then rest 30-45 seconds and repeat. You’ll be doing this for each super-set within the workout.
This boosts your metabolism and helps with fat burn, because you are putting stress on the muscles to create an oxygen debt that the muscles need to make up for with energy… This energy will be used POST WORKOUT, meaning you are burning the majority of calories after the actual workout, by having an elevated metabolism…
If you are currently doing “traditional cardio” and you are not getting the best results then I would suggest moving to at least HIIT, which is 30 seconds hard, 30 seconds rest for example, for 10-15 minutes.
Also train hard with bodyweight or weights in a circuit fashion…
The benefit of ordering Truth About Abs (for a ridiculously low price that’s guaranteed) is that you have a proven way to reach your dream body using the full workouts, nutrition plan, rest periods, ideas, everything put together in a very nice step-by-step plan.
The question is not wheter or not Truth About Abs works or not, but wheter or not it’s right for you… Check out the program risk-free and see if it’s something for you or not… You’ll quickly experience some pretty cool results if you’ve never done this kind of workout before, that’s for sure!
- I hope you’re finding my review of The Truth About Abs useful and enlightening. It should help you make an informed decision as to whether it is for you or not. Mike Geary’s concepts have changed my life. It took effort and discipline on my part to make it work, but maintaining my six pack is the easy part.
Throughout my late teens and early twenties I found time to go to the gym and be active. I had a relatively healthy lifestyle and my weight was never an issue. The crushing responsibility of adulthood was yet to wreak havoc with my metabolic rate.
My first desk job required a move to the bright lights of the big city. The hours were long and I constantly craved sleep. I had no time for the gym or healthy meal preparation.
After a few years of living this insanely unhealthy lifestyle, it started to show outwardly. My hair and skin were a mess, but worse than this was the weight I’d gained around my abdomen. My clothes were all a bit too tight (especially all my jeans).
My self esteem had fallen through the floor, I was embarrassed to be seen without my shirt on, be it on the beach or around the pool. I felt as though I’d been hijacked by visceral fat. I perfected the art of covering my body with layers of clothing to hide the fat belly.
This really was a low point in my life, I felt as though I’d given up and was slowly letting my body slip to the point of no return.
When I’d finally hit rock bottom, something just snapped and I made a decision to change my life. I changed my job and MADE the time to get fit and healthy again and get back in control of my life. I joined the gym and worked out three times a week.
I filled my kitchen cupboards with healthy food. I needed to lose 25 lbs (11 kilos), after 6 months of the “new me”, I’d only lost 5lbs (2 kilos), not really the result I was after. I trained hard at the gym, I ran around the park in the mornings and I watched what I ate.
The lack of results took a huge toll on my motivation and commitment. Here I was killing myself and for what. It was so easy to slip back into a world of PROCRASTINATION and fast food.
After spending weeks on the net looking for some help/advice/answers on how to lose the belly fat, I came across The Truth About Abs by Mike Geary.
I’d already tried a high cardio exercise regime, I’d reduced my calorie intake, I was only eating healthy food and was doing crunch after crunch, however I wasn’t losing the stubborn stomach fat.
When I committed to buying The Truth About Abs and then committed to the program, the following happened:
- I developed a physique I’d only ever dreamt of having
- My self esteem and confidence went through the roof
- I had the healthy lifestyle I craved
- I had masses of energy
- I had more time to do the things I loved doing, because The Truth About Abs is not about spending hours in the gym or doing boring cardio
If you make the same commitment to yourself today, you could have that gorgeous beach body in time for summer.
My review of The Truth About Abs
The Truth About Abs is split into two sections. The first covers nutrition and the second exercise. The first thing you notice is that the book is long (149 pages) and very comprehensive. In fact it is a little daunting, but I persevered and spent the next few days, reading it from cover to cover.
The style of the book is very clear and concise, there is no waffle, it literally is fact after fact. It is also pretty idiot proof (good for me). The reason I say this is that from a practical perspective, it holds your hand through the entire process.
There are detailed diet plans with portion sizes and calories and every exercise is explained by way of photographs, so there is no room for misinterpretation.
The big question – Did it work for me?
At this point you really have to want to make it happen. The book can sit on your hard drive for months before you get round to it. You can procrastinate and delay, but like anything worth doing, you need to just get on with it and take it a step at a time. I probably had the toughest job from a fat perspective as I needed to lower my body fat by about 5% – which is the last bit of stubborn body fat that is particularly hard to lose unless you know how and Mike Geary’s book provides a complete blue print on how.
The Truth About Abs worked for me, because I made a commitment to myself and to be honest had wasted enough time already with all the other online junk. My target was my summer holiday, so that was motivation enough to get on with it.
I learnt that literally everything I had been doing before, was wrong. I was eating the wrong foods (i.e. soya milk – thought it was great for me, turns out that it is quite the opposite – just google it to check) and my exercise regime was doing absolutely nothing to help me lower my body fat percentage. I was using single joint exercises, like dumbbell curls that don’t really do that much as opposed to multi joint exercises like squats that can increase your resting metabolic rate by as much as 7x. I was fatiguing and starving my body to the point that my metabolic rate was slowing and was in fact gaining some weight. How crazy is that, but we all do it.
Once I’d put my nutrition and diet plan into place, the results were astonishing. Within a week, my stomach literally looked less distended (maybe it was psychological initially). But by the end of month 2, my upper abs were starting to show and most of the fat on my lower back was starting to go. I felt great and my energy levels were constant.
It was in this month that it really started to happen and the great thing is, the more I started to see results, the greater my motivation. My clothes started to fit properly. I didn’t actually recognise myself in the mirror. Had never seen myself with a six pack – loved it. I’ve just hit my 30’s, I now weigh 170 lbs (77 kilos), I’m in the prime of my life and I feel incredible and my girl friend, well, she can’t keep her hands off me…..
Will it work for you?
The Truth About Abs will work, if you make a commitment to yourself. Find something that will motivate you like a beach holiday and go for it. My original goal was to just lose my belly, but the six pack was a real surprise and a great one at that. The key is to take each day at a time.
