Having a six-pack is arguably the most sought-after goal in the fitness industry today.
Unfortunately, the mere thought of a ripped stomach leaves individuals falling short of properly training their midsection.

It is just after 2 p.m. on a miserable autumn afternoon in London’s east end when I rock up to Autograph ABP. I cannot help but laugh to myself in bemusement as I pass an endless stream of fellow Londoners seeking refuge under the awnings of local cafes and restaurants to escape the relentless beating of the rain.

In a sport that's been around for centuries, it's unusual to encounter something that hasn't already been tested, tried, proven or failed.
We talk about tournament organization in regard to the three T's: title, team and trophy sponsors.
