I had a conversation with a young man who left a comment on my Six Pack Shortcuts Review that I wanted to highlight today just in case anyone else was wondering the same thing.
Here’s how the conversation unfolded…
Nicholas: Hello John, I found this review very interesting and helpful but what I have to ask is I’m 14 years old 5’6 105 pounds and i was wondering if this program would be of any use to me. Thanks for taking the time to read this and i cant wait to here your response! Sincerely, Nicholas
John: Hi Nicholas, Thanks for your question. Since you’ve still got some growing to do, I’d wouldn’t recommend using the Six Pack Shortcuts program. There are better options out there for someone in your shoes.
Now, I’m not a youth training expert, but assuming your parents/doctor/coaches/etc. clear you, I’d probably steer you towards bodyweight training and calisthenics rather than weightlifting (at least, for strength training).
You could look into these programs, which are all great options, IMO:
TACGYM (Tactical Gymnastics)
If you have any further questions, just let me know – happy to help.
Nicholas: Hi John, Hey its me again what i am wondering is i am looking towards this TacGym and i was wondering if you it would give me good results? Nicholas
John: It depends on what kind of results you’re looking for. TACGYM is a great program, as are the other two I recommended. I know I linked to another website for more info on those three programs, but http://www.physicalliving.com is another one of my sites. So, I’m not sure if you realized that I actually wrote that (very positive) review of the TACGYM program. It’s a great product by fitness coach, Scott Sonnon, and I bet you’d enjoy it, especially if you’re interested in getting fit by learning some cool acrobatic moves.
Nicholas: Hi John, sorry to keep asking you stuff but do you think that if i eat healthy and do the six pack shortcuts workouts online it would give me a six pack I have one but its not completely visible unless i flex so do you think i could get the results just from his Youtube channel?
John: I’d say it’s highly unlikely. Getting lean is very difficult even with a great program, and picking and choosing a bunch of different workouts – and piecing them together randomly – probably won’t work. That’s just my two cents from what I’ve seen over my life and career. If you want to achieve a difficult goal like getting ripped, you’re going to need a great program that includes diet and training, among other things.
Nicholas: Hey John, I’m sorry for asking so many questions but i just got a response from the six pack shortcuts program as i emailed them and they said to take his youtube video workout and put them together for a 45 minute or so workout. Thanks again Nicholas
John: You can certainly try that, Nicholas. Let me know if you have any further questions – happy to help.
