The Body Sculpting Bible for ABS: Men (Body Sculpting)by James Villepigue
Synopses & Reviews
Spending too much time doing hundreds of crunches? Not seeing the spectacular abs you want? Your current abdominal workout is probably not working all the necessary muscles. The TVA, the transverse abdominis, is the most overlooked and underworked muscle in the body. The Body Sculpting Bible for Abs: Men's Edition by James Villepigue reveals that the abs are not one set of muscles, but several overlapping layers: the rectus abdominis, the internal and external obliques, and the TVA. All of these muscles must be toned in order to achieve that elusive "six-pack." No other exercise book on the market focuses on the TVA. The traditional regimen of crunches and more crunches works just one set of muscles, the rectus abdominis, but The Body Sculpting Bible for Abs has special exercises designed for the TVA, as well as the other abdominal muscles, in a complete program for producing a strong, toned midsection. What's more, The Body Sculpting Bible for Abs goes beyond just abdominal exercises. "Without dietary modifications and total body workouts to promote fat loss," Villepigue advises, "no amount of abdominal training will miraculously melt away a 'spare tire'. In fact, people who work so hard on those crunches may actually be promoting postural imbalances that can set them up for future injury." The Body Sculpting Bible for Abs exercises and 14-Day Workouts are a safe and holistic program of ab work that lets men reach their goals safely and quickly. The unique 14-Day Workout has a progressive, ever-changing program that provides the variety and motivation needed to get results in record time. The exercises work all of the abdominal muscles, as well as the rest of the body's "core," to produce a lean and chiseled look. The Body Sculpting Bible for Men, the best-selling first book in this series, was a run-away hit with exercisers across the country. MuscleMag called it "The most complete, effective fitness manual out there." Now the author of this proven workout plan helps men identify and work all of the muscles of the abdomen, including the "hidden" TVA, to achieve perfectly ripped abs.
It's BODY SCULPTING at its best--the best exercises, the best nutrition plan, and the best training schedules out there, anywhere. The ultimate abdominal training book for men.
