Is Six Pack Shortcuts Good For Building Upper Body Mass? (Q+A)


hey mike, will sixpack shortcuts help me build my chest, arms, and shoulders? i’m 21 and have always been skinny. please help! thanks, jorge


I’m not Mike (note: this is a Six Pack Shortcuts REVIEW website), but I’m quite familiar with the Six Pack Shortcuts program and I’d be happy to answer your question as best I can.

The short answer is, yes, the program will help to build the muscles of your chest, arms, and shoulders – and the rest of your body, too. It’s a body transformation program for both muscle building and fat loss, with the ultimate goal of helping you get six pack abs.

That said, the workout program probably won’t be enough in-and-of-itself to help you with hypertrophy (i.e. muscle gain), especially if you’ve “always been skinny.” Building muscle (beyond short-term newbie gains) is arguably the most challenging body composition goal to achieve – even harder than getting six pack abs. So, using a program like SPS to build muscle will require some extra focus. Namely, you’ll need to start eating a lot more than you have been. And if this is uncharted territory for you, then you might want to use some kind of a resource to help with that, too. Eating for mass can be much harder than it sounds!

Six Pack Shortcuts does come with the Zero Willpower Eating System (i.e. 13 diet/food/nutrition-related videos), but this is really just an introduction to nutrition to help support you in your quest to achieve six pack abs. And it’s not a muscle building protocol. So, your nutritional needs will be a little different.

I know that Mike Chang also offers the Monster Mass program for guys mostly interested in hypertrophy, but I haven’t reviewed that program myself. So, it could be dud.

So, what should you do?

Well, you’ve got some options…

a) Get the SPS program and tweak your diet to help you build muscle (e.g. eat a slight calorie surplus, increase protein, eat lots of carbs after training, etc.)

b) Get the Monster Mass program to focus on the muscle building BEFORE trying to get six pack abs (two very different goals).

c) Try something else

Now, if you go with the Six Pack Shortcuts program, which might be a good choice since it interests you, and you’re much more likely to stick with something that you’re interested in, then I’d also recommend picking up a copy of Tom Venuto’s best-selling book, Burn The Fat Feed The Muscle (highly recommended!). That’ll help you get the diet considerations in place better than any other book out there.

And if you love it like Bob did (see the comment he left on my Six Pack Shortcuts REVIEW below), then I’d also highly recommend getting Tom’s 7-day Burn The Fat Body Transformation Program, too. The 7-day program is like a quick-start guide that’ll simplify the process for you and help you start getting great results immediately.

So, I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.
