Mike Geary – The Truth about Six Pack Abs Review & Download
Mike Geary Review
On this page you will read a review of the program written by Mike Geary: The Truth About Six Pack Abs.
The Truth about Six Pack Abs is Mike Geary’s fresh hot new item off the presses – an ebook that claims to give you the straight truth about getting six pack abs. Its home site is pretty over-the-top, as you’d expect of any good marketing campaign. It’s their job to make it look good, of course, so we won’t begrudge them that.
The fact is though, there are a lot of programs with the same claim attached. There’s a pretty tangible burden of proof to bear with respect to results, and more often than not, programs don’t measure up. Fitness programs especially have a tendency to recycle the same old information from guide to guide. Plagiarism is not uncommon, and even occurs with information that isn’t worth stealing. Fitness programs, particularly those in e-book form, have a certain stigma to progress past. This starts with their being honest.
At first glance, the Truth about Six Pack Abs seems as though it might be just another sensationalist piece of marketing propaganda aimed at a quick buck. Anything related to appearance or weight generally sells well, and most consumers don’t hunt around for reviews first, letting bad products get away with their shenanigans for quite some time.
In short, Truth about Six Pack Abs checks out. Mike Geary makes it a point to explain everything that he shares; there are no statements made out of the blue, without context or reasoning. Some fitness programs will simply demand some steps or other, frequently leading to very arcane workouts that seem to have very little connection to reality—a suspicion that can be confirmed when they seem to do little to actually increase one’s muscle definition. Truth about Six Pack Abs assiduously avoids this, probably in hopes of restoring a little bit of faith to the consuming public, and makes sure to explain things through. Truth about Six Pack Abs checks out, from an honesty standpoint.
What about abs?
The abdominal muscles are the core muscles visible on the surface of the torso. When well-defined, they form what is colloquially known as a ‘six-pack’. Of course, drinking the occasional six-pack is an excellent way to make sure these muscles stay out of sight. In any case, there are a number of myths about them that propagate a bit too easily. A rudimentary understanding of the abdominal muscles is good to have going in to any program related to them.
First of all, their physical size is not connected to their definition as directly as with other muscles. They can’t be treated the same as, say, the arms or the pectorals. While a number of individuals don’t bother to do the research to learn what actually leads to good ab definition and simply give the same canned advice out over again, the truth is that the old rules don’t apply as directly and comfortably to abs as they do to the rest of the body. As a very basic rule of thumb, abdominal muscles must be defined, but they needn’t be bulked to be visible and aesthetically attractive.
Rather than bulk, body mass must be considered. Fat covers the abdominals rather easily, especially in men; testosterone keeps fat building on the gut rather than in the chest or legs. Many individuals find that their abdominals begin to be visible without targeted exercise simply because they’ve begun to burn off the fat around them. Cardio plays a role that many different programs completely ignore (Truth about Six Pack Abs does NOT ignore cardio, much to my pleasant surprise!).
Lastly, there is a myth following targeted exercise, and why targeted exercise is necessary. ‘Spot-reduction’ of fat is impossible. One who wishes to lose fat from their legs will find that no amount of legwork will successfully get rid of it. They may lose fat from everywhere as a result of their exercise, but general cardio can only reduce the fat content of a body, not get rid of fat from any specific area.
This, however, contrasts with the ability of specific muscles to be exercised for tone and definition. It is very possible to focus on a particular muscle group and develop it to the exclusion of others. Any number of amateur gym-goers have, in their attempt to look as impressive as possible, neglected their arms or chest, ultimately failing because they either had bulky pecs with noodle arms or a decent set of guns without any core muscle. Oops! Truth about Six Pack Abs addresses this disparity by neatly explaining what is being done when and where, keeping the confusion regarding spot-reduction and focused toning to a minimum.
Mike Geary—Who is he and why should I care?
Mike Geary isn’t just some guy. I confess, I didn’t know who he was when I started looking into the program. As it happens, he’s a very well-known nutritionist with considerable accolades. He writes regularly for Muscle and Fitness, as well as Oxygen Magazine. He’s an actual columnist, rather than a snake-oil shyster buying ad-space. It follows that the tone of his website is, again, marketing, rather than smoke-and-mirrors (although the understandable and inevitable connection between the two is forgivable ).
He carries himself with an air of professionalism and writes well both in his magazine articles and in his ebook products. He left me suitably impressed, and I can see why he attaches his name directly to what he does. Anyone that reads his articles regularly in his regular publications (I did not until I recently started picking up Oxygen) will easily see why his programs get the traction they do for sales.
So why review this program?
So, I’ve looked into a lot of fitness programs before. For the most part, they’re mediocre: not horrible, but nothing to really write home about, either. There are several that are very much worth it, but it stands to reason that I don’t find the programs worth reading by trying absolutely everything on the market. Before purchasing, I did my research.
Mike Geary’s program to the fastest way to get abs is one of considerable weight with respect to sales. Ebook production being what it is, most authors don’t need to shoot for high sales to turn a relevant profit. They’re cheap to produce, cheap to market, and breaking even isn’t hard. Mike Geary’s program, on the other hand, doesn’t fit this mold of ‘Just throw it out there’: he swings for the fences with respect to marketing. There’s advertising everywhere, and it’s hard if not impossible to look up ab workouts without hearing about it. And he’s hit his mark. Truth about Six Pack Abs is VERY widespread and continues to sell. This was my first tip.
My second tip was the fact that he has a trial offer. I am always more inclined to believe someones claims, if they are willing to show me the goods before asking for an investment. Ok it isn’t a free trial, but getting the opportunity to test the full program for under 5 bucks is more than reasonable in my book. The trial option is a bit “hidden” on his site, but you can click here if you want to have give it a try yourself.
My third indication of quality, was the overwhelmingly positive response. Now, I should explain what I mean by a positive response. There are number of programs that have an overwhelming number of positive reviews—this isn’t what I mean. It’s no secret that anyone can go out and put a product up for sale, only to have a number of blog posts pop up and any number of posts on Amazon and other consumer review sites: “OMG best product ever! Five out of five stars!!” The average rating goes up, hundreds of completely-positive absolutely stunning reviews come up, and very little seems to be said about the actual product. Ahhuh. Right. Mike Geary’s program is, very notably, without the same spam load that some other ‘popular’ fitness products haul along behind them.
In this case, an ‘overwhelmingly positive response’ is not ‘an overwhelming number of positive reviews’—no. It’s the quality of the reviews that go up, that were clearly written by real people with something worth saying about the product. Of the reviews that are written by actual people that actually respond to the product, a number of them are positive, and most of the negative ones (as expected) seem to have been written by people ill-capable of reading the content, let alone carrying it out as required. This was encouraging, so I went ahead and picked it up for my own ends.
So how’s the program?
Well, I have abs again. And this is the fastest way to get abs.
Mike Geary’s program is thorough. This is also its primary flaw. As with all fitness programs, it’s best to read ahead and comprehend as much of the material as possible, with multiple readings as necessary. Full engagement, as it were, is encouraged—and there’s just SO…MANY…EXERCISES. Reading through all of the content Mike Geary has imparted us with left me more than a little tired before I was done. Just with the reading, not the whole process!
Over 20 different exercises are given for the abs alone. They are short, sweet and simple, and focus entirely around exercising the correct muscles. A problem in my own workouts I discovered through this program is that the body loves the path and option of least resistance and will make a spring for it at every chance it gets—half the time, trying to exercise one muscle group will result in a number of others chipping in to take up slack or take over the job. This is fine in day-to-day function but poses something of a problem when you’re trying to do a targeted workout.
Truth about Six Pack Abs takes this in hand and guides you through a number of workouts designed to be fool-proof: they assume, rightly, that people will automatically make mistakes. Don’t feel insulted. It’s possible to do a sit-up wrong! Did you know that? I didn’t until I read his product. I know a bit about fitness, but I’m not an expert the way he is (obviously), so it’s nice to have these things idiot-proofed for my sake.
Many of the ab workouts are designed to be done at home. Some are designed for the gym. I prefer the gym to my home, as a rule, but don’t always have the time to get out of the house before work or social engagements, so I like the ability to split between the two. The home workouts can easily be performed at the gym, as well, or elsewhere, so it all handles very nicely. They’re compact, as well. I go to the gym for cardio anyway, so I was able to incorporate Mike Geary’s ab work into my day-to-day. It worked perfectly.
In exchange for the simple workout scheme, however, persistence is rewarded. I shouldn’t have to say this, but I will anyway: DO NOT take Mike Geary’s Truth about Six Pack Abs as a get-fit-quick scheme. It isn’t one, he doesn’t market it as one, and don’t get caught up in the flashy advertising. It takes work. It isn’t a program for people that want a magic pill, but it’s an excellent program for those that are willing to work toward what they want, but can’t seem to get it right.
His nutrition section is, as expected, exemplary; his experience as a nutritionist shines. I was guilty of chasing the occasional fad diet before (I’m vain, okay?!) but I’m on a much better straight-and-narrow now. There’s room to splurge that doesn’t feel like splurging—I haven’t ever agonized over what to use my ‘cheat’ meal on or anything like that. It’s just a very simple diet to follow that’s kept me feeling jazzed since I buckled down to commit to it.
Additionally, he addresses cardio. THIS was the godsend I was waiting for in an abs program. So many people like to forget cardio exists and just focus on their regimen of ab exercises. Mike Geary doesn’t. He covers what cardio does, when it’s a good idea, in what amount, how to go about it and so on and so forth, making it very, VERY easy to follow along and understand what’s being done and when.
It’s said that ‘a magician never reveals his secrets’—Mike Geary neatly beats this in the face. First and foremost, he’s a nutritionist and fitness expert. He makes no bones about this. His program isn’t some font of knowledge previously unknown to mankind—it’s a fitness program.
His instructions are easy enough to follow. It’s all a matter of dedication and devotion. As with any fitness program, it’s very easy to let oneself slip and give in to the urge to stay in bed and give up that early morning trip to the gym out in the cold or other inclement elements. His program isn’t magic; you won’t get your six pack overnight, and it won’t let you get away with this kind of laziness. However, it will produce results over the course of a few weeks. All in all, I found it very much worth the purchase. Click here to buy the full program, or click here to get a trial for less than five dollars.
