Day 315: A Six-Pack In 50 Days?

G'day,

I had a brainwave today! Maybe I should re-label Mission 3 to MI3, Mission Possible 3...A Six-Pack In 50 days?

Sorry, that's a pretty lame joke, but I gotta do something to keep myself amused as I go through the daily grind of carving out a six-pack.

Speaking of which, is there anybody out there reading this blog (you?) who has successfully carved out a "full frontal six-pack"?

If you have done it previously I'd love to hear from you. I'd like to hear about your cardio plan, ab training and nutrition plan when you were going through the process.

Did you have a specific deadline to get that six-pack (like I do with Day 365) and did you have a specific daily caloric deficit target to hit every single day.

Another question I have is did you use any advanced techniques like manipulating your water retention levels and sodium intake in the lead-up to your deadline (or contest)?

The reason I ask is in the aftermath of Mission 2 when I held a public vote on Day 136 (which I won!) I got a lot of comments from people giving me advice about those advanced techniques I discussed in the last paragraph.

According to some people I went about it the wrong way in that I didn't use of those advanced techniques and the fact that I hammered myself with double cardio sessions daily during the last four days of M2.

In hindsight I know I went very close to getting that six-pack for M2 and perhaps those extra 1% daily actions and techniques may help me get over the line for Mission 3.

So, I'm gonna open the floor now, do you have any advice for me during the next 50 days?

Until tomorrow...

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG!

Cheers,

couldn't you put in a question to your firm and flatten abs guy? or even tom venuto? they might be able to help you with your 6-pack question. i, for one, have never had a 6-pack, so i for sure can't help you there.

Hi Suzette, the only thing is that Dave and Tom are so busy! I just thought I could get some different points of view and ideas to what other people do to get a sixer.

But it looks like I'll have to figure it out by myself which is ok as well.

Cheers,
Adam

Hi Adam,

My goal is not specifically a six-pack although I will be disappointed if I do not get one. My goal is to reach 10% body fat but in a slightly different fashion to others. I want to prove you can get there in reasonable time but without changing your lifestyle radically i.e. still have few treat, drinks each week. Currently I have lost 4% BF in 10 weeks and put on over kg of lean muscle. I use no supplements or protein shakes.

For my abs I find a great workout comes from the Billy Blanks Tao Bo DVD. He has what I think is a great 35 minute DVD which goes through a variety of exercises. I find it great for an evening workout after work before tea and it supplements those gym workouts well. Believe me, you really feel the burn during it!!

All the best,

Andrew
