6 pack abs in 30 days...

Entertaining Article/Video of an average guy determined to get 6 pack abs in 30 days...

Check it out here.

I love stories like this.  A person sets a goal and stops at nothing to achieve it.  Great stuff.

Obviously he had a few things working in his favor...

  • Extreme time frame (believe it or not sometimes makes it easier to say I'll do something for 30 days vs my whole life.)
  • Unlimited funds (for personal trainer, nutrition program)
  • EXTREMELY Strict nutrition plan.
  • A dedicated personal trainer, (single information source)
  • Unlimited time (based on the fact he was training 2-3 times per day)
  • And most importantly... A HUGE driving factor and accountability system to complete his goal (his job, and public humiliation on video if he fails). 

Reality for everyone else:

  • No immediate timeline.
  • Tight budgets. 
  • Too much information, in too many places you don't know where to start.
  • No nutrition plan (or one that you're kinda on, kinda off)
  • No personal trainer.
  • Extremely limited time (based on work, family, stress, etc)
  • NO Driving Factor and Accountability System.

I shared this video NOT to say that excessive crunching will give you 6 pack abs (obviously something they overplayed for humor purposes) or working out 2-3 times a day is a good/realistic idea... but to show you that it is possible to accomplish a goal when you have the right resources, make it a priority and have a strong driving factor/motivator.
