Congrats to sixpackshortcuts for fooling thousands of people into paying money for his information. He has a great marketing scheme but the end result will be the same whether you spend money on his program or do the research yourself. Some of the crap that guy comes up with is hilarious though.
IMO if you want to waste your money on a program/diet that you can obtain through researching and reading stickies in this forum for free then go nuts. Spend that money on your diet instead of on his videos

It actually works, I have done it. Although I will say, if you don't change your diet dramatically it will have no impact on getting you a 6 pack.
I started doing it, eating the way I usually would, simple carbs etc... And I never got the body, despite the '6 pack program.' I am now seeing good results, but because I have basically cut out all carbs apart from vegetables and sweet potato. His program says brown rice, and brown bread, is ok. In my experience, it was not I just couldn't cut down the little bit of stomach fat I had left.

I started doing the six pack shortcuts about 3 weeks ago. I'm in phase 1 of 4. It definitely works, if you follow the eating plan and do the workouts. I'm seeing some nice changes and I'm not being perfect with the diet. I can tell this program will get me a 6 pack if I stick to it (I plan on sticking w/ it). The main thing I like about it is the fact he keeps it very simple. Prepare your meals in tupperware containers ahead of time, and just pop one in the microwave every 3 hours. Some protein source, veggies and carbs in every meal. About 300-400 calories per meal is what I'm shooting for. Then, do the workouts with as much intensity as you can muster. The first phase is about building muscle to boost your metabolism, so I'm making sure I do the max weights possible for the rep count. All the exercises are supersets, so, for instance, you'll do bench followed immediately by bent over row. These workouts require a gym, so if you're not lucky enough to have a squat rack, dip station, pulldown station, dumbbells, etc., you'll need to go to a gym. You also need a stopwatch or some timer to do intervals. I bought a Gymboss and it's really nice. It clips onto your pants and you can use it for interval timing or just as a stopwatch. The exercises are nothing fancy-- just normal weightlifting and then there are some crossfit moves like burbees, mountain climbers, and so on. The workouts are taking me 30-45 minutes. I go 5 days on, 1 day off, then repeat. I added a yoga workout to make it 5 days per interval, since his workout schedule has 2 back-to-back all body workouts, which I think is counterproductive. I am doing the yoga workout between the 2 all-body workouts.

I'm not on that program, but I just love how negative guys are on here! Geeze, chill out! Everyone is so quick to call it a scam when it's clearly not. You've all moreless said it, he is providing sound information that, granted, a person could find themselves by doing some ground work on their own. He's put all the info together into one package and he's selling it; that's called business, and if you don't like it then you're going to have a lot of other issues to dig into with your shrink. Seriously, if you've got a chip on your shoulder about this then you must hate text books...ya know, being that they are compiled information from different sources. It is merely called "six pack shortcuts" or whatever the hell. It's just a name, people are still working-out and eating right.

Anybody who has been doing this for a while and actually does their research will tell you that there is no "shortcut". If you want to cut down on your body fat you have to do 3 things: 1. do cardio; 2. be disciplined with your eating; and 3. do your research. Number 3 is important because if you don't know what you're doing, you're going to waste a lot of time and energy getting to where you want to go.
There is absolutely no need to spend money to accomplish this. Even if this program works and you get your 6-pack, you're getting the same results that Google can give you for free and you're making some dude rich.
Notice that almost everyone who is supporting this product in these forums only has a small handful of posts? Just be careful about what people try to sell you.
And yes, I can see some people commenting that I do not have many posts, but then again i'm not trying to sell anything!

my 4 month progress update on 6 pack shortcuts
Based on the fact, I'm doing the program again, I think it's worthwhile. This 2nd time through, I'm not watching the videos any more and I just use my old training logs to remember the workouts. The support for the website is very poor. I sent a question via email and it took about 4 days to get a response. In the response, he greeted me with the wrong name. Another time I sent a question because the link to the videos disappeared from the home page and I had to dig through my browser history to figure out how to get to the videos without linking from the home page. I never did get a response to this question. If you buy into the progam, only pay for the core program and cancel out of the VIP monthly deal. The VIP program gives you access to some additional videos on dieting, but it's definitely not worth $65 bucks a month.
My results: Started at 190 lbs, measuring the max circumference at the top of the hips, I started out at 38 3/4". Today, still 190 lbs and I'm normally at 35" or 34 3/4" circumference most mornings, right after waking. Size 33 jeans are fairly loose, but 32 jeans are too tight yet. My max lifts have gone up: 2 rep bench went from 150 to 190, 2 rep deadlift 150 to 240, 2 rep squat 135 to 185. I'm 6'2" with longer legs, so squatting takes a lot of concentration. I tweaked my lower back early on due to poor techniques and had to sit out for about 5 days. I watched some google videos on squatting (squatRx I believe) and I fixed the flaws in my technique and made stretching beforehand a priority. I'm ultra cautious on squatting, so I've been raising the weight very gradually and am mainly concerned about feeling the muscle working and using perfect form.
Although my results are not mind blowing, I have made steady progress on the program. The program is designed around phases. Phase 1 is about building muscle mass to raise your metabolism. It lasts about a month. Phase 1 weightlifting days are compound moves hitting the major muscle groups with higher volume, supersetting all moves, and 1:30 rest between. Phase 1 functional cardio workouts are giant supersets of bodyweight cardio and core moves for 20 secs each with 1 minute rest in between. You do 10 cycles of these giant supersets. I've been adding a 3 mile jog to the functional cardio workout days, when I have the energy and time.
Phase 2 is more typical of most weightlifting routines and is meant to build quality muscle. It lasts about a month. You split the body parts into 3 workouts. Phase 2 decreases the volume and raises the number of sets, and some isolation moves are added in. You continue to superset all the exercises and the rest time is still 1:30 between exercises. Phase 2 has functional cardio workouts as well, which also hit core muscles.
Phase 3 is meant to break through plateaus. The rep count is low and you load up the weight, but the rest time is down to a minute and supersetting continues. It splits the bodyparts into several workouts similar to phase 2. You do this phase in 10 days with no days off. There are some functional cardio days mixed in for recovery. This is a fun phase because you get to do some max lifting in this phase. Although the rep counts are not meant to be as low as 2, I modified the workouts a bit to see where my maxes were. I probably wont do that in this 2nd cycle. I wasn't able to make it 10 days in a row. I was getting super sore and by day 8, I needed to take a day off.
Phase 4 is the last 2 week phase. The workouts are shorter, rest is minimal. The workouts are combination of weights and functional cardio/abs.
The nutrition part of this program is all about the tupperware meals. It's rather simple to stay on track with the diet, if you make all your meals in advance. Each week, I make about 21 meals in one cooking session and it takes me about 3 hours with clean up. I do chicken breasts, round steak, and some fish occasionally. Carbs are normally sweet potatoes, whole wheat pasta, or brown rice. I include steamed frozen veggies with every meal. I usually eat 3 tupperware meals a day and I make up the other 2-3 meals. I am trying to get to 4 tupperware meals a day in this 90 day cycle.
There you have it. For those who like some structure and don't have the knowledge to design a pretty-smart program on their own, the 6 pack program is a good investment. It's certainly not a short cut to getting abs. I'm 4 months in and expect it will take me probably another 3 months to reach my goals. I'm also planning to introduce some carb cycling in the last month to really do the final cutting.
Good luck to you guys on the training!
