The Best Abdominal Exercises You’ve Never Heard Of


From the Desk of Marc David
Date: Novemeber 11th, 2006 7:00pm PST

Looking for the best abdominal exercises?

After running a very successful online bodybuilding forum, I can tell you that the second most frequently asked question by beginners and advanced athletes is…

“How do I get a 6 pack? I do and I’m X% body fat… but I still can’t see my abs?”

Nick Nilsson has done it with his complete training guide. Make no mistakes. This is the real deal.

Eye-catching, fantastic six-pack abdominal muscles!! You see them on the beach in the summer. Some of the fittest people at the gym may have them. It’s something that everyone wants, yet not everyone is able to achieve. Great-looking abs are the envy of everyone, and you want them! You work hard, but can never quite get there.

What if I told you that you, too, can have a knock-out midsection? The kind of abs splashed in all the fitness and bodybuilding magazines…the abs that have everyone staring as you walk by. And, you can achieve them spending less time a day than it will take you to read this message from start to finish!

If you’re excited, you’re still not half as excited as I am to share this information with you. I GUARANTEE you that, if you use the exercises and training programs in an eye-opening new training book by Nick Nilsson, author of “Metabolic Surge – Rapid Fat Loss” and “The Best Exercises You’ve Never Heard Of,” you will not only take your abdominal development FAR beyond where it is right now, but you will also learn secrets that will ensure you:

- Develop six-pack abs that pop out and make a washboard look like a chalkboard
- Tighten your waist to wasp-like proportions
- Flatten your stomach in areas (such as the lower belly bulge) where regular crunches fail
- Develop astonishing core strength, rock-solid stability, and explosive power
- Tighten the muscles under the love handles to make these bulges practically disappear
- Target the hard-to-reach lower abs with guided-missile precision
- Make every moment of your ab training extremely effective, slashing workout times while creating abs that have the finest trainers begging for YOUR secrets

The facts are plain and simple, all ab exercises are NOT created equal. If they were, those thousands of crunches you’ve been doing would have already paid off by now. But, they haven’t, and you want powerful new exercises that are going to get you results fast…not the same old thing!

In Nick’s new book, “The Best Abdominal Exercises You’ve Never Heard Of,” you’ll find 55 unique and powerful, never-before-seen exercises that work your abdominal muscles from every conceiveable angle!

You’ll get 55 great descriptions on how to do the exercises along with full-color photos and videos! And, if the exercises and videos aren’t enough, he’s designed very specific programs to help you achieve off-the-charts results. You’ll take your abdominal and core training FAR beyond where you’ve ever been with these highly targeted programs:

- Waist and Love Handle Minimizer- Core-Strength Workouts- No-Equipment Workouts- Six-Pack Workouts- Abdominal-Detail Workouts- Explosive-Core-Strength Workouts- Lower-Ab Workouts- Swiss Ball Workouts- Serratus Builders
And more…
No matter what your goal or desire for your abs, he’s got a program that puts it all together and WORKS!

You’ll find ab exercises that:

Carve your mid-section into rock-solid shape by pumping your abs! Oh sure, you’ve trained and felt the burn, but where has it ever gotten you? If you’ve ever felt that phenomenal pump in your biceps while you work them…the pump that means you’re getting awesome results, then you’ll love knowing how to achieve that same pump in your abs, the pump that makes your abs feel like carved granite, the pump that lets you know you’re getting great results!

Create an eye-popping six-pack that will reach out and GRAB attention. The exercises in this book make the contraction in ordinary ab exercises feel like a gentle breeze. You’ll get MAXIMUM tension at the most “anatomically possible” contracted position, creating the abs you’ve always wanted!

Imrprove your bench press. Work these exercises hard, and you’ll NEVER have trouble locking out a heavy bench press again.

Work all sections (upper abs, lower abs, and side abs) with innovative and powerful exercises designed to absolutely SHRED your midsection…you WON’T find these exercises anywhere else.

Let me put it this way…

By the time you go through these exercises and work them hard, you won’t have just plain old abs anymore…you’ll have a steel-belted, wasp-tight, power-packed core!

If you want next-generation ab exercises that will hit your abs in ways you’ve NEVER experienced before, I highly recommend you check out “The Best Ab Exercises You’ve Never Heard Of” right this second.

What are Cortisone Shots?


What is cortisone?

Cortisone is a naturally occuring steroid in your body that’s produced by the adrenal gland. Your body produces it under stress. When it’s needed, it’s released into the blood stream and is relatively short acting.

Synthetic cortisone closely matches your body’s own production. The main difference is that manufactured cortisone can be injected into the area rather than put into the blood stream. It’s also designed for a much longer duration (days instead of minutes).

How does the cortisone injection help?

Cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication. It’s not a pain reliever. Any pain that disipates when a cortisone injection occurs is because the inflammation has been reduced. Cortisone can be taken with other pain medications to work best with limited side effects.

Synthetic cortisone shots are designed to work directly on the affected area within minutes for a period of weeks.

Why would somebody need cortisone injection?

Any type of problem where there is inflammation that is causing pain can be a potential cantidate for a cortisone shot. Some of the more common problems that individuals have that might require a cortisone shot would be but not limited to:

Shoulder Bursitis
Trigger Finger
Tennis Elbow
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Will it hurt if I get a cortisone injection?

Depending on a few factors like the location of the injection, if fluid needs to be removed prior to the shot, the type of needle used and the skill involved on the person giving the injection, it can be somewhat uncomfortable to mild. Local numbing agents can be used to dull the area where the shot will be given.

What are the side effects of a cortisone shot?

1- A “Cortisone Flare” is where the injected cortisone crystallizes. There can be some pain associated with this that is worse than the original pain. If this occurs, it usually lasts a day or two and is best treated with ice.

2- Possible whitening of the skin in the area of injection. Temporary but more noticible if you have darker skin.

3- Infection which is very rare. That usually avoided in a clean envrionment with a professional.

4- Diabetics can have a slight increase in their blood sugar levels which should be monitored closely.

And as always, if you are allergic to any of the medications (local numbing agents, etc) that can cause complications.

How many cortisone shots can I get?

While there is no limit to the number of shots one can receive, most common is about 3 shots a year. There’s really no limit. There are practical limitations to a cortisone shot. If you give more than 3, it may not be working, in which case does it make sense to continue? Animal studies have shown that multiple and continued cortisone shots have shown some weakening in the cartilage and tendon areas. Repeated and continual injections can increase the risk of this potential side effect. That is one of the main reasons why many physicians will limit the number to 3 or less.
