How to Get Ripped Abs Review
I took a good 5 weeks to do this How to Get Ripped Abs Review so that I could give people a
comprehensive look at what this belly fat burning programs is like. I’ve been in the fitness
industry for 25 years now and have followed many fat loss and weight training programs but I’ll
have to say my biggest challenge is sometimes just staying lean once I get there. I enjoy eating
pizza and ice cream with my kids just like anybody else but sometimes I go a little too far to the
extreme and over the course of a few months can put on quite a bit of fat because the heavy
weight training routines that I do don’t burn a lot of fat to keep me lean. I decided to take the
next 12 weeks to switch over to a pure conditioning and fat loss workout so that I can see my
abs again and feel healthy again.
I’m currently testing out a program called How to Get Ripped Abs by John Alvino. I know how to
write my own diets and fat loss programs but sometimes after I write them I start to second
guess myself through the program and constantly make changes. I wanted a program that laid it
out from start to finish so that I wouldn’t have to think about it. I just wanted to follow the
instructions and let the fat burn off.
How to Get Ripped Abs definitely has it all which is why I was attracted to this particular
program. The package includes everything you could possibly need leaving nothing to chance.
It has a 12 week workout program, custom meal plan based on your lean body weight, recipes,
and a comprehensive exercise index detailing each exercise with pictures. This program has
everything and I wanted my How to Get Ripped Abs Review to include as much as possible.
How to Get Ripped Abs – the workout plan
The workout program is called Meltdown and is divided into 4 phases each lasting 3 weeks.
These are very intensive full body workouts labeled workout A and a workout B that are
performed every other day 3 days per week with the alternating 3 days being used for high
intensity interval training cardio workouts. This is one of the most effective fat burning workouts
I’ve ever seen designed. The reason for this is each exercise is designed to use a maximum
amount of your muscles, stabilizing muscles, and your core. One example is the single leg curl
on a ball. I thought this looked easy in the book but once I tried it and realized I was stabilizing
my entire torso while sliding the ball back I found I couldn’t complete the 12 reps. The book is
loaded with these full body intensive exercises that in turn burn fat off faster than any isolation
or standard weight lifting exercises ever could.
There is also a good amount of dumbbell work with exercises that work multiple muscles at
once. I was exhausted after my first workout and now I know why the workout is called
Meltdown. Every muscle in my body was exhausted and I was ready to get some rest. The
program also allows you to print out your workouts in a chart format so that you can fill in your
weight and reps. I printed my workout and placed it onto a clipboard with a printout of the
exercise descriptions just in case I needed to reference back on how to do some of the specific
ones that I wasn’t familiar with.
The cardio workouts are focused on the days that you don’t train with weights. They are high
intensity and there are several to choose from. The book contains variations of cardio that can
be done without equipment which is nice because then I can limit my trips to the gym to only 3
How to Get Ripped Abs – the nutritional guide
Since everyone is different this program is tailored to your individual body type and lean body
weight. Nothing is left to guessing here as there is an individual meal plan for each person
designated by calories per day. The meal plan has charts of food making it easy to exchange
some foods for others. This isn’t a diet as you won’t be starving yourself at all. This program
requires that you eat plenty of food. Anywhere from 5 to 6 meals per day spaced out through the
day. There is an emphasis on clean whole foods and when you begin to eat like this you’ll find
that you fill up fairly quickly, you’re never tired and you are never hungry. There is a separate
book included that gives recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and deserts. Also included is a
book for protein shake recipes. The entire nutritional program is very precise for the individual
and gives plenty of instructions on what to eat and how much. Food logs are also included that
you can fill in as well as a daily menu that makes it easy to follow.
If you are looking for a full package fitness program I really consider How to Get Ripped Abs to
be foolproof. Think of it like painting by numbers. If you just follow each day exactly as shown
the fat will consistently melt off your body while achieving a very high level of physical condition.
I am going to follow the 12 week plan to the letter. I’m going to follow the full 84 days to the
letter. Come by and check out my daily progress!
