thing I also noticed is that Vince backs up his statements
with RESEARCH. This is often lacking in a lot of
programs I've read (definitely a nice change of pace!).
example that stood out to me...in the book, Vince cites
a new study by Dr. Bente Stallknecht and colleagues,
from the University of Copenhagen. They discovered that
spot reduction IS possible by isolating certain muscle
groups, combining cardio, and boosting hormones that
accelerate fat metabolism and elevate fat tissue temperature
So what Vince
did was take this research and apply it to REAL-WORLD
training for you so you know exactly how to take
it to the gym and actually DO it.
is just one example - he covers studies like this for
many aspects of training, nutrition and supplementation.
This isn't a guessing game program backed by fancy marketing
- this is effective science-based training information.
that jumped out at me was Vince's approach to weight
training - explosive weight training in particular.
I don't see a whole lot of fat-loss programs that make
it a POINT to train with explosive exercises. I know
from experience, this is very effective stuff.
to great lengths in the book to address the hormonal
aspects of fat-loss. This is often missing from fat-loss
programs - nutrition and exercise are only part of the
equation - knowing how to make the best use of your
body's hormonal REACTIONS to that nutrition and exercise
is a factor not often taken into account.
are a number of things in the book that I don't agree
on with Vince, but these are generally minor and
nothing that sends up red flags, that's for sure.
Vince states that he has yet to see anyone achieve six-pack
abs without doing more than 20 minutes of cardio 3 times
a week. Personally, I HAVE seen people get ripped without
ANY "formal" cardio training at all! Naturally,
this can vary by individual and by training and eating
regimens but it is possible.
What I definitely
DO agree with him on is that when you DO perform cardio,
it should be done intensely - as he puts it "I
CAN TELL YOU THAT IF YOU'RE NOT LEAVING A PUDDLE OF
WATER AND A TRAIL OF SWEAT AFTER YOUR CARDIO WORKOUTS
THEN YOU'RE ALMOST WASTING YOUR TIME. GOING TO THE GYM
IS ABOUT INVESTING TIME, NOT SPENDING TIME."
liked to see a time-management section in the book
- e.g. how to put this plan to work for you if you have
3 hours a week available
if you have 3 to 5 hours
available to you
if you have 5 to 7 hours available
to you. This approach will allow you to get the best
results for the time you've got.
it looks to me like Vince is right on the money. He's
got excellent tips for eating for fat loss as well as
some very well-put-together meal plans. He takes advantage
of carb-cycling and calorie-cycling to really help keep
the metabolism firing for continuous fat-burning while
sparing muscle mass.
to supplementation is a sound one, favoring a "food-based"
supplement program (things like fish oil, protein, greens,
etc.) rather than a magic pill that people think is
going to do all the hard work for them. We think alike
on this one for sure.
look at the training programs included in the program,
you'll notice he bases the VAST majority of the work
on compound exercises (i.e. multi-joint stuff like squats,
snatches, push-ups, etc.). It's a good approach - the
specifics (set and rep schemes, etc.) are obviously
going to be different that what I use in my own programs
but overall, from my experience, I can see the weight
programs being very effective for the major goal, which
is fat loss.
has put together an EXCELLENT fat-loss package here.
He's covered pretty much every major aspect of fat-loss
that you need to know in order to really get maximum
results, no matter what your level.
looking to refocus your efforts and really see those
six-pack abs that are hiding on you, I can most definitely
recommend this manual. It's good stuff and will get
the job done.
