David Grisaffi’s Flatten Your Abs: Build An Awesome 6-Pack!
Daydreaming of a six pack? Gazing with envy at the exquisite midriff of the model on the cover of Oxygen magazine or Men’s Fitness? Looking for the holy grail of developing a magnificent midsection?
Well, David Grisaffi’s Flatten Your Abs is exactly what the doctor ordered. It’s a high quality, in-depth publication devoted to the development of the 6-pack. Weighing in at an acceptable 60 pages, David’s book outlines in depth (including detailed pictures for each exercise outlined) the absolute best exercises for developing core strength and building the abdominal area.
This is not some book jammed with numerous “variations on a crunch.” In fact, I’d be very surprised if you were familiar with any more than a few of the exercises presented here. And best of all, the majority of them do not require rolling around on the floor!
The book begins by dispelling the various myths associated with building abs, and ends with David’s Top 15 Abdominal Secrets. There’s also a nice Q&A (question and answer) section, as well as a brief primer on diet, exercise, and supplements. The bulk of the volume, though, focuses on presenting you with the exercises that will best help you attain your 6-pack goal.
You may be asking… do I need any special equipment to train my abs according to David’s recommendations?
That’s a good question. While David himself is quick to point out that it’s not necessary to have any equipment to train your abs properly (and that includes the late night TV ab-buster 2000 type of products), he does suggest investing in a Swiss ball.
In general, I’d agree with him—the Swiss ball is a pretty amazing, low cost tool that can be used for all kinds of fitness related purposes, not simply the training of your abdominals. Plus they’re easy to find, and won’t break the bank.
Whether you’re looking to develop greater core strength, build an awesome 6-pack, or alleviate back pain, you can’t go wrong with David’s book — which, I might add, comes with several bonus volumes…
i. Stretching and flexibility guide
ii. David Grisaffi’s Walking Guide
iii. Modern Diet Secrets Revealed
iv. Heartattack/Stroke Prevention
… all of which are worthwhile reads. Anyway you slice it, it’s a good investment, and recommended reading for ayone who wants to develop an awe-inspiring midsection!
