Overview

Tens of thousands of Americans have changed their bodies - and their lives - with the help of The Abs Diet, the New York Times bestseller from David Zinczenko, editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine. Now, to meet the demand for more information about exercise, Zinczenko and coauthor Ted Spiker present readers with dozens of workouts and hundreds of exercises that they can do any time and any place for fabulous body-altering results.

The Abs Diet Get Fit, Stay Fit Plan introduces a new workout system - ABS3 - based on simple, highly effective principles:

    A: Abdominal exercises strengthen your core
    B: Big muscle groups increase metabolism
    S: Speed intervals, not slow cardiovascular exercise, burns fat faster
    3: 3 days a week is all you need to see results

In The Abs Diet Get Fit Stay Fit Plan, workouts are flexible, varied, and quick - you can complete them in less than 20 minutes. Designed to strengthen your core, flatten your gut, and get you in the best shape of your life, this exercise guide demonstrates why David R. Pearson, director of the strength-research laboratory at Ball State University, has called the Abs Diet program "a must for anyone who is serious about building a healthy body."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - BookSmack!
This is ten kinds of good to make a dent in that ten kinds of nasty you got going on down there. Don't kid yourself—Barbara Walters would sooner call Jackie Stallone than you for a date. Consider this a baby step before you go all Zone if it makes you feel better, but, dude, do SOMETHING about the visceral fat. It's a literal killer, not as quick as Ted Bundy but just as sure. Your average 40-year-old dude trims a handy four years off his life with a body-mass index of 40. Mista Z., editor in chief of Men's Fitness magazine, encourages you to eat healthy (e.g., almonds) rather than crappy (just look in your fridge). Most of the book is devoted to strong-man abs-n-strength exercises. These are simple (almost Cross Fit) but hard and will amp up your metabolism, reduce body fat, and increase lean mass. The book also contains the basics of the approach's dietary and mealtime advice, which is also simple. The point is, it's going to help take fat off your belly, where we men store it for safekeeping and to gross out the ladies. You can work the little points system, you can remember the little acronyms, you can gawk at the pictures of the lycra-clad fitness model, whatever. The point is to start - today. You'll see result pretty damn quick. — Douglas Lord, "Books for Dudes," Booksmack! 1/6/11

My boyfriend has been body building for years and I have been doing it for quite a few months and this book kicked our butts. We only did fifteen minutes to a half hour and we were hurting the next day. This book is awesome!

Was very insightful and very informative on all subjects of losing weight, proper nutrition, and plenty of workouts to go off of! The pictures and clear descriptions make it easy to get the right form the first time! A beginner will find this a GREAT foundation to wanting to get on the right track and the more "experienced" will even learn some new things! I found this to be a PHENOMINAL book! I go to the gym 4X a week and I have learned plenty of new things from this book and am able to push my body in the gym to even farther limits due to this book! and when they say you can reshape your mid-section in 6 weeks if you follow their plan, they mean it! Like I said, great for the beginner or the frequent gym goer!
