ISSA Certified Personal Trainer
Your Six Pack Abs Coach
Six Pack Shortcuts is divided into four phases. In each phase of the program, you will be focusing on a achieving small goals that will bring you closer to your final goal of getting a muscular body with abdominal definition.
In Phase 1, we focus on building total body muscle mass. You'll be doing full-body workouts designed to put overall size and muscularity on your body. We also focus on developing a a few positive exercise habits during this phase. You'll get in the habit of doing short workouts consistently, every week. You'll also get in the habit of preparing seven healthy meals at the beginning of each week, and eating one healthy pre-prepared meal per day. The workouts in this phase are shorter, easier, and less intense. This is because it is important to condition your body before doing extremely intense workouts, and to ensure the workouts are realistic to stick to if you are just beginning to exercise.
In Phase 2, we focus on total body fat loss. Of course, much of the fat lost will be in your abdominal area, and this will later help with your goal of getting ab definition. In this Phase, you will begin doing more high intensity cardiovascular exercise designed to accelerate fat loss and build functional strength. You will also be reducing your rest times when doing weight training, in order to achieve an aerobic exercise effect and burn more calories and fat. Finally, we will be focusing on eating three healthy pre-prepared meals per day in this Phase. The focus is on maintaining your strength and muscle mass in this phase, while losing fat. These habits together will help you to achieve the caloric deficit which is necessary to achieve this goal.
In Phase 3, we focus on building your core muscle and breaking through "exercise plateaus." The workouts in this phase are MUCH more intense than in previous phases. If you have been following the program in Phase 1 and 2 though, your body will now be ready for this type of extremely challenging workout. The focus in this phase is on heavy, compound weight training that engages your entire body. Squats, dead lifts, power cleans, military presses, and many other heavy, compound lifts are heavily utilized in this phase. The goal in this phase is to "shock" your muscles into further growth. These exercises also build an extremely strong core, and muscle mass on your abdominals. This will tremendously benefit you in Phase 4 where we focus on shedding the last few pounds of fat, so that your abdominal muscle is visible.
In Phase 4, we focus on the losing the last few pounds of fat necessary to achieve the "six pack abs" look. This is also the "maintenance phase" -- you will be repeating this phase permanently in order to maintain your abs. In this Phase we focus on full implementation of the eating system -- you will now be eating five healthy pre-prepared meals per day. We also teach advanced fat loss strategies in this phase. These are not necessary for beginners, but will tremendously help you to achieve the low body fat percentage that is necessary for six pack abs. Finally, you will be given ten different workouts in this phase. This is to ensure your workouts always stay fresh and interesting, since you will be doing this phase permanently to maintain your body. The workouts in this phase focus on maintaining your total body muscle mass, while also adding the final details to your physique. You will be using more isolation exercises in this phase, since your experience with exercise will now make them valuable.
Expected time commitment for each phase: For each phase, you will be expected to study 2-3 hours of video material before beginning. Dan and I explain the goals and focus of each phase first, and teach you the concepts you need to know to be successful. Then we actually take you into the gym, and show you how to do the workouts. Finally, we take you into the kitchen and show you how to prepare your meals.
In each phase, you will be doing short workouts 4 days per week. On average these will be around 30 minutes, but it varies by Phase and by how much rest time you choose to take in your workouts. For most clients, the workouts will take around 25 minutes in Phase 1, 30 minutes in Phase 2, 45 minutes in Phase 3, and 30 minutes in Phase 4.
You should also expect to spend 60-90 minutes per week pre-cooking healthy meals. These meals will later be microwaved, so that you always have healthy food available right away.
Support Resources Available: An important part of the program is that unlimited personal support is coaching is included for all Six Pack Shortcuts clients. Clients are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this personal coaching, because I have found that it will dramatically improve your chances of success with the program.
