The single biggest reason why guys fail to get six pack abs is a lack of CONISTENCY.
It doesn’t matter if you’re the world’s most knowledgeable expert on exercise and nutrition – if you’re not consistently applying your knowledge, it’s all just a bunch of mental masturbation.
So it seems like common sense to spend just as much effort on figuring out how to get yourself to be CONSISTENT, as you do learning how to eat right and exercise. Sadly, very few people do this.
And it’s too bad, because if you educate yourself about this it can take you a LONG way towards getting six pack abs. Here’s just one tip that I think will help you make better choices in your exercise and diet:

If you want a simple plan to get six pack abs FAST, you need to pick up a copy of Six Pack Shortcuts. It’s a step-by-step exercise and eating plan that shows exactly how to get the six pack abs you’ve always dreamed of. It’s designed to be easy to follow – and it’s 100% proven to work:
Psychologists have found that when we’re trying to make a major change (such as cleaning up our diet, or beginning an exercise program) a part of our brain will subconsciously fight the change. You will actually enter into a lowered state of consciousness when you are trying to change, where you lose sight of what’s best for you and are subconsciously “pulled” back to your old habits.
And what’s worse – YOU WON’T EVEN REALIZE IT’S HAPPENING. In fact, you’ll think that you’re sounding extremely logical and reasonable, when you’re actually sabotaging everything you’ve been working for.
One example of this is skipping workouts when it’s not necessary, and justifying it with lame excuses. Here are some that I’ve used (and that I’m sure heard being used before, and maybe even used yourself):
- I’m not going to work out because it’s bad weather today
- I’m really tired – I think a few more hours of sleep will help me more than a workout
- I think I need a “cheat” day (even though you didn’t plan it in advance)
- I have a lot going on right now – I’ll start working out tomorrow (and of course, tomorrow never comes)
- I’ll work out, once I read X book or watch Y video. After all, I don’t want to be doing anything wrong!
- I can’t afford a gym membership/training/equipment (while simultaneously wasting money on video games, junk food, and alcohol)
I’ve used all of these myself, and I know from experience they all sound like they make so much SENSE in the moment.
If you’re serious about getting head-turning six pack abs, then this is the only way to go:
