    The "6 pack abs" code has just been cracked!

    Finally an answer to flabby abs! So many products on the market promise you a 6 pack but just can't deliver. Abs Revealed breaks it down to the key areas that are going to get you results--targeted cardio, nutrition and exercises that train the entire core. Everyone wants great abs for the summer but Jonathan shows you how to have lean abs for life!
