Learn The Real Truth About Mike Chang’s Six Pack Shortcuts Program In This Painfully-Honest, Candid Review
Maybe you’ve seen some of Mike Chang’s Youtube videos and some ads for his Six Pack Shortcuts program, but you’re not quite sure what to think of him, his product, and his company. Well, after six months of reviewing everything, I finally got something published – that is the final word, if you will, on the Six Pack Shortcuts program. In fact, it was such an ordeal that I created a whole website just for it here: www.sixpackshortcutscompletereview.com.
Now, let’s get one thing straight. I was pretty nice in the Six Pack Shortcuts Review that I wrote for the general public. As always, I tried to be as unbiased as possible and truly look for the good in this product (there is a good bit of it), even if I truly wanted to hate it from the get-go. Truth be told, there are some things that I really – REALLY – don’t like about Six Pack Shortcuts, and you’re going to get a taste of that here.
Now, I gave Six Pack Shortcuts an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars, and in hindsight, even that may have been too generous for a general product review that isn’t geared for any particular audience.
But in this review of Six Pack Shortcuts, for my audience (ie not the general public), I’m not exactly going to hold anything back. In other words, I’m going to include some things that I intentionally left out in the other one because of the audience I was addressing. Said another way, you guys are going to get a little extra special attention and insider info that I left out of the other review, just because I like ya so much. Fair enough? Great.
Note: I am not going to delve into the nitty-gritty details about this product or my experience reviewing it since I’ve already done that in the other review. Instead, I’m going to highlight what I wanted to say, but didn’t. Yes, I’m the guy who holds his tongue, bites his lip, and fumes immensely from time to time because I sometimes feel it would be best. But not today!
In this review of Six Pack Shortcuts, I want to talk a little bit about the marketing and sales of this product, the inexcusable abundance of bro-science upon which it is based, the prevalence of outdated, ineffective, incorrect, and yes, bad advice contained within it, and in a broader sense, the folly of seeking special, hidden knowledge to solve our self-induced problems.
Yet again, I find myself getting into something far bigger than I originally expected.
So, what’s my main beef with Six Pack Shortcuts? In a word – lots. In two words – tons, actually. There are so many things that I don’t like about this program it’s not even funny. I may do my best to be fair in an unbiased product review meant for the general public, but when you get down and ask me what I really think about it – one on one – then I might confide the following.
Some of the Six Pack Shortcuts sales and marketing schemes make me sick. And I really can’t stand some of it. It’s almost as if they will say and do anything to make a sale, and this is shameful, at best. In my complete review, I said “I’ve found that the SPS marketing to be amateur, sensationalistic, misleading (even deceptive), borderline unethical, and even dangerous in some cases.” And I stand by that. In fact, I almost didn’t even review the product because of this. It’s that bad. And this is a major mark off for a product and a company because it eliminates trust.
Six Pack Shortcuts has caught a bad case of the bro-science. They’ve got it bad – really bad. And in my mind, this almost completely invalidates the product in-and-of-itself. It’s almost as if this system is entirely based on research that was done in bodybuilding websites, forums, and magazines. That’s not to say that bodybuilding is the problem here – just that there is so much non-science contained in this product, it’s scary. Speaking of which…
Six Pack Shortcuts is chock-full of outdated information and bad advice. We’ve come really far in the past decade alone in our understanding of human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics, among other things, but you wouldn’t know it when you use Six Pack Shortcuts. Now, don’t get me wrong because there is definitely some good info and advice in SPS, but there’s a lot of really bad information, too – and even some dangerous recommendations.
There’s nothing special about the Six Pack Shortcuts Afterburn Strategy. There is this tendency in human nature, and we see it quite obviously in the health, fitness, and weight loss industries, to relentlessly seek after special, hidden knowledge (that only a minority knows about) to help us solve our problems. This never-ending pursuit drives people mad, and encourages them to make rash decisions that go against their better judgment – like buy a product they don’t need and that can’t help them. And this is perpetuated by marketeers whom fixate upon one key feature, quality, or variable of their product in order to tap into those emotional triggers that get someone to buy their product.
With Six Pack Shortcuts, it’s the Afterburn Effect, which is a very real phenomenon, but it’s been turned into a half-truth for the purposes of providing a unique marketing angle to get people to buy this so-called unique, special product. But the reality is that there’s nothing special about the Afterburn Effect, and it won’t make or break your success in a fat loss program. It’s just a good selling point. And the IDEA that something else could be out there that we don’t yet know about is what’s dangerous.
And so, in a much broader context, we are in mega trouble when we consider that clever marketers are willing to bend the truth in order to make some money. But this isn’t news to us as this has been going on in our industry for a very long time. It’s just important to acknowledge it when we first smell it, call it like it is, and steer clear of the trouble.
There are a lot of really good fat loss, body transformation, fitness, and even six pack abs resources out there. But if you’re like me, you’ll need to use your head to distinguish the good ones from the bad. And that’s not to say that everything about Six Pack Shortcuts is bad either. On the contrary, there are many things that I do like about it. But it’s not something I’d recommend to a close friend, if you know what I mean.
Now, if you are so inclined, you can learn all about the product in my complete Six Pack Shortcuts Review, where I absolutely tore it to pieces and put it back together again nicely. I think that one puts the nail in the coffin on this particular product.
