Tens of thousands of Americans have changed their bodies - and their lives - with the help of The Abs Diet
, the New York Times
bestseller from David Zinczenko, editor-in-chief of Mens Health
magazine. Now, to meet the demand for more information about exercise, Zinczenko and coauthor Ted Spiker present readers with dozens of workouts and hundreds of exercises that they can do any time and any place for fabulous body-altering results.
The Abs Get Fit, Stay Fit Plan introduces a new workout system - ABS3 - based on simple, highly effective principles:

In The Abs Diet Get Fit Stay Fit Plan, workouts are flexible, varied, and quick - you can complete them in less than 20 minutes. Designed to strengthen your core, flatten your gut, and get you in the best shape of your life, this exercise guide demonstrates why David R.
