“Mike, I just want to tell you that this is one of the most effective systems for getting abs that I’ve ever tried. I’m sending you a picture of what I used to look like before I started on Six Pack Shortcuts, and what I look like now.

I was actually just about to give up, when I heard about Six Pack Shortcuts. I gave the program a try, and you can see the results I got just a few months later.

And the most exciting part for me was, I finally saw my abs for the first time in my life.

You’re a really good trainer man, and thanks for everything you’ve done for me.”

“My biggest problem area on my body was my gut…I bought all kinds of abs machines I saw on the infomercials but none of them delivered what they promised. The problem wasn’t that I didn’t have ab muscles; it was the thick layer of fat that was covering them. I saw the Six-Pack Shortcuts online one day and decided to give it a shot.

I was very skeptical at first, but after just 1 week I begin to see a difference. At the end of the program I was very satisfied with the way my abs looked, and I decided to compete.

On the day of my show, my ab definition was excellent, as you can see in the picture above. I did very well in the competition, and I partly credit this to the look my abs had in the picture above.”

“I had been working out the past 3 years and was never able to get my abs defined. I tried different diets, fat burners, and did tons.

I was browsing online one day and came across Mike’s six pack site and told myself “what the hell, I tried everything else I could think of” Well, pictures don’t lie — you can see what my body and my abs looked like at the end of the program. I got to be honest, I feel great with my shirt off these days!”

“Back in high school I was in great shape, played football and stayed very active and a flat stomach. I was confident, I looked great in clothes, and was never.

Just like everybody else, those were my best years as far as the way my physique looked.  As time went by, I felt to busy to exercise and my waistline expanded.  Every year, my gut got a little bigger.

Thanks to Six Pack Shortcuts and to you Mike, I’m back down to football playing shape. One of my main goals with the program was to reduce my waistline and to see ab definition.

You can see how my abs looked at the end of the program from the picture, and I was very satisfied with the reduction in my waistline as well.
Thanks again Mike.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How Is Six Pack Shortcuts Different From Everything Else Out There?

One thing you should know — this program is EXTREMELY different than most fitness and diet programs. Here are the most important differences:

  • Six Pack Shortcuts was personally designed by me. I’m an ISSA certified personal trainer, with years of experience training clients in the real world. And as you’ve seen in my pictures, I’ve also managed to achieve a great physique and six pack abs myself — unlike many other people selling exercise courses.
  • Most fitness programs give you dozens of different habits and changes in your lifestyle, which you’re expected to make all at the same time. Six Pack Shortcuts, on the other hand, gives you just TWO or THREE key habits to learn in each phase of the program. What does that mean for you? Less confusion, an easier time implementing what you learn, and ultimately increased chances of success with the program.
  • Six Pack Shortcuts is delivered through a series of entertaining, yet informative online videos. You can download the videos permanently to your computer, or stream them online from anywhere in the world. This means no slogging through 300 pages of boring text or hours of lecture. It also means that you’ll get access to the videos INSTANTLY – no waiting around for weeks for something to get shipped to you.
  • Six Pack Shortcuts teaches you everything you need to know about both exercise and nutrition for getting six pack abs. It’s a complete guide to getting abs — you won’t have to buy anything else.
  • And most importantly: Six Pack Shortcuts includes unlimited email support from me personally, and unlimited phone support from certified personal trainers on my team. Most fitness products just give you a bunch of information, and you’re left on your own as to exactly how to apply it. I give you the information and knowledge you need, AND I mentor and support you every step of the way.

“OK, Sign Me Up To Get Six Pack Abs! But How Much Is This Going To Cost Me?”

I sell Six Pack Shortcuts to my live training clients for $297. And they consider this a bargain, because it contains over 14 hours of high quality video training from me personally. Since my training rate is $137 per hour, they’re getting the information much cheaper than if they’d paid to learn it from me live.

Not only this, but it’s also far more convenient – since you can watch the videos anytime you want, and you don’t have to abide by my schedule.

So for $297, you get access to my complete system for getting ripped six pack abs, and all the bonuses.


Although I’ve been training guys live for many years, I just launched the internet side of my business. The most important thing for me now is to establish a group of HIGHLY MOTIVATED clients who will achieve spectacular results. This is because I know that if you get six pack abs with this program, you’ll tell EVERYONE about it.

This is how I built my live training business, and this is how I want to grow Six Pack Shortcuts as well.

So for a limited time, I’m offering you the “online-only” price of just $97.

That’s over 50% off what my live clients are paying, and a steal compared to the value of the program.

But there is a catch.

In return for this low price, you have to promise to tell EVERYONE that you know about Six Pack Shortcuts once you get your abs. This way you can get a great deal, and it’s fair to me as well.

I urge you to ACT NOW, and to sign up to get six pack abs.

“I Can See This Program Is Working For Lots Of Other Guys. But How Do I Know It Will Work For Me?”

First, unlike many other fitness programs, Six Pack Shortcuts was designed with a very specific client in mind. Six Pack Shortcuts is optimum for men who are in “OK” shape – who don’t yet have six pack abs, but who also are not severely obese. If you already have ab definition, or if you are obese this probably isn’t the best program for you. But if you’re a guy who’s in OK shape, then this program is specifically designed for your needs.

Because I had YOU specifically in mind when I designed the program, you’ll find that it’s exactly suited to your needs.

Secondly, I’m committed to doing EVERYTHING I have to ensure your success. If for some reason you’re having a problem that the videos don’t cover, remember that free phone and email coaching from me personally is included with Six Pack Shortcuts. I will personally walk you through any issues you’re facing on the phone, or through email. I’ll spend however long it takes to make you successful – THAT is how committed I am to your success.

Now, I’m legally obligated to tell you that I’m not a doctor, and that I can’t guarantee your results with this program. But remember that if you don’t get a ripped body six pack abs with this program – or if for any other reason you’re not happy with it – you don’t have to pay. I offer a 100% no questions asked money back guarantee, anytime within 60 days of your purchase. I’m willing to put my neck on the line like this because I am confident that this program is going to be ideal for you, specifically.

How does the Six Pack Shortcuts Program Works?

Six Pack Shortcuts is divided into four phases. In each phase of the program, you will be focusing on a achieving small goals that will bring you closer to your final goal of getting a muscular body with abdominal definition.

In Phase 1, we focus on building total body muscle mass. You’ll be doing full-body workouts designed to put overall size and muscularity on your body. We also focus on developing a a few positive exercise habits during this phase. You’ll get in the habit of doing short workouts consistently, every week. You’ll also get in the habit of preparing seven healthy meals at the beginning of each week, and eating one healthy pre-prepared meal per day. The workouts in this phase are shorter, easier, and less intense. This is because it is important to condition your body before doing extremely intense workouts, and to ensure the workouts are realistic to stick to if you are just beginning to exercise.

In Phase 2, we focus on total body fat loss. Of course, much of the fat lost will be in your abdominal area, and this will later help with your goal of getting ab definition. In this Phase, you will begin doing more high intensity cardiovascular exercise designed to accelerate fat loss and build functional strength. You will also be reducing your rest times when doing weight training, in order to achieve an aerobic exercise effect and burn more calories and fat. Finally, we will be focusing on eating three healthy pre-prepared meals per day in this Phase. The focus is on maintaining your strength and muscle mass in this phase, while losing fat. These habits together will help you to achieve the caloric deficit which is necessary to achieve this goal.

In Phase 3, we focus on building your core muscle and breaking through “exercise plateaus.” The workouts in this phase are MUCH more intense than in previous phases. If you have been following the program in Phase 1 and 2 though, your body will now be ready for this type of extremely challenging workout. The focus in this phase is on heavy, compound weight training that engages your entire body. Squats, dead lifts, power cleans, military presses, and many other heavy, compound lifts are heavily utilized in this phase. The goal in this phase is to “shock” your muscles into further growth. These exercises also build an extremely strong core, and muscle mass on your abdominals. This will tremendously benefit you in Phase 4 where we focus on shedding the last few pounds of fat, so that your abdominal muscle is visible.

In Phase 4, we focus on the losing the last few pounds of fat necessary to achieve the “six pack abs” look. This is also the “maintenance phase” — you will be repeating this phase permanently in order to maintain your abs. In this Phase we focus on full implementation of the eating system — you will now be eating five healthy pre-prepared meals per day. We also teach advanced fat loss strategies in this phase.

These are not necessary for beginners, but will tremendously help you to achieve the low body fat percentage that is necessary for six pack abs. Finally, you will be given ten different workouts in this phase. This is to ensure your workouts always stay fresh and interesting, since you will be doing this phase permanently to maintain your body. The workouts in this phase focus on maintaining your total body muscle mass, while also adding the final details to your physique. You will be using more isolation exercises in this phase, since your experience with exercise will now make them valuable.

Expected time commitment for each phase: For each phase, you will be expected to study 2-3 hours of video material before beginning. Dan and I explain the goals and focus of each phase first, and teach you the concepts you need to know to be successful. Then we actually take you into the gym, and show you how to do the workouts. Finally, we take you into the kitchen and show you how to prepare your meals.

In each phase, you will be doing short workouts 4 days per week. On average these will be around 30 minutes, but it varies by Phase and by how much rest time you choose to take in your workouts. For most clients, the workouts will take around 25 minutes in Phase 1, 30 minutes in Phase 2, 45 minutes in Phase 3, and 30 minutes in Phase 4.

You should also expect to spend 60-90 minutes per week pre-cooking healthy meals. These meals will later be microwaved, so that you always have healthy food available right away.

Support Resources Available: An important part of the program is that unlimited personal support is coaching is included for all Six Pack Shortcuts clients. Clients are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this personal coaching, because I have found that it will dramatically improve your chances of success with the program.

Clients can email, or use the form provided on the Six Pack Shortcuts members-only site to contact me personally. I respond to all emails myself, and I will give you detailed feedback on the issues you are facing and how to achieve your individual goals. I want to give you the same level of personal attention as I give my live clients, and I will work with you extensively over email to ensure you have everything you need to succeed.

The Pros

  • The program is relatively easy to follow and with plenty of video demonstrations, even those who have never worked out before should be able to utilize the program
  • There is a nutrition component to go with it. Because seeing six pack abs very much does come down to diet, it’s good that Mike hasn’t overlooked this element
  • There is a plan for those who want to workout in the comfort of their own home – you don’t have to go to the gym if you want to do this program
  • The program seems to focus quite a bit on arms as well, so think of it more as an arm and abs program

The Cons

  • Some of the eating principles that Mike talks about may be chalked up to ‘broscience’. This said, those that follow them should see good results.
  • Most people who have some basic understanding of nutrition will find a few of the nutritional videos and instruction very common sense-like – there is no ground breaking information here
  • The videos don’t come across as extremely professional, but at the end of the day, this doesn’t really impact the results that you get
  • Once you’ve signed up for his program, do expect to get regular emails that market additional products, both of his own as well as others he cross markets with

Our Verdict

All in all, this program lays out quite well how to eat right, exercise wisely and see faster results with your fat loss program.The concept of getting six pack abs very much does boil down to losing enough fat off the midsection and Mike Chang gives enough details on how you can do that quite effectively in this program manual.

This said, if you are a very advanced lifter, you may find this program a little on the basic side. Most people will be just fine to use it, but if you have years and years of experience under your belt and have already gained a god 40-50 pounds of solid muscle mass over time, it may be a little beneath you.

For everyone else, Mike Chang offers a great dose of motivation, and easy-to-learn format with a lot of video content and he makes eating wisely a no-brainer. Put these all together and you have a good program that should yield excellent results if you stick with it.
