“4-Hour Body” Ab challenge Results!

August 17, 2011

I decided to do a little experiment from the book I’ve been reading by Timothy Ferriss, “The 4-Hour Body.”

According to Ferriss, 6 minutes and only two movements, “Cat Vomit” and the “Myotatic Crunch” (along with either a slow carb or ketogenic diet or intermittent fasting) is all you need for visibly beautiful abs, or the “6-pack” that many desire.  Since my diet is already good, I eliminated alcohol from my diet for a month (no red wine with dinner?!?) and watched the desserts [ from afar ] more than usual.

Week 2, I noticed 4 of the 6-pack were visible and realized I did not like the look on my frame.  I already have muscular arms from doing regular body work and the wash board abs weren’t impressing me.  I prefer the more flat/toned look for my frame.  Week 3, I only did the two movements twice instead of daily.  My “4-pack” disappeared after a few days of not doing the movements and I ended up with a stronger, flatter and toned stomach.  I literally only spent about 1.25 hours total over the course of 3 weeks.  Not bad… I guess Ferriss knows his stuff.  I recommend this book!
