Abs in No Time? Stupid Commercials…

I have had it up to HERE with commercials for ab work out products.

The one I see most frequently these days is a cot-like contraption that lets you practically bend over backwards to  work your abs with no sweat and no effort.

There are close up shots of sexy, sculpted abs and “testimonials” from people telling you how easy it was to lose their bellies and get ab definition.

Before you run out and spend your hard earned money on one of these things, let me make just a couple of quick points:

  • You can not spot reduce body fat.
  • You don’t need to spend a dollar on equipment to get a good core work out.
  • You still need to  eat healthy and do cardio exercise.
  • Definitions in your abs (in fact, ANY muscle definition) is achieved by lowering your body fat percentage, not just by doing exercises.

I’m one the road tomorrow so I won’t have time, but I’ll try to post a quick and effective ab/core routine by the end of the weekend.

I’m going to make it my personal mission to teach the world how to do this without lining some slick marketer’s pockets with cash.
