Whether you’re a fan of Batman or not, the chiseled abdominal contours of his kevlar suit are fodder for the imagination. But there’s more to the Caped Crusader than his armor. The man beneath the suit — Bruce Wayne — forged his mind and body into a commanding crime fighting machine.
And much like the Dark Knight who bursts forth into action and promptly fades back into the shadows, our favourite bodyweight routine — Kevlar Core — made a brief but impressive appearance late last year only to fade back into our stash of “secret weapons.” This is the type of routine that a guy like Wayne relies on for an unbreakable core.
Well, Kevlar Core is going to make another brief but much needed appearance — with your help…
And just like Batman would sometimes team up with other heroes like Superman, we’re going to team up with our good friend Dr Kareem Samhouri to make sure you start working on your own Kevlar Core.
Read his article below and let us know in the comments why you think you need a kevlar core. Or you could even let us know of a time that your solid core saved you (just like the story Kareem shares below).
The best comments are going to get a FREE copy of Kevlar Core. We’ll announce the winners on Sunday here on the blog.
#1 Tip For A Kevlar Core

There is a distinction between strong and unbreakable.
Unbreakable wins, every single time.
I remember the first time that I felt unbreakable with my Kevlar Core… but before I get to that, I want you to totally relax your mind and try to imagine what you’re going to read below:
“I was rollerblading around dusk in Miami, FL, close to my apartment, which was by the bay. My fiance (now wife) started to get some speed on me, so I did what any gentleman would do… I sped up!
…and like a proper peacock I flaunted my confidence as I proceeded to blade directly into a chain that was ‘hiding’ between two poles. I hadn’t seen the chain with the glimmering reflection of the sunset in the distance.
Fortunately, superhero-like reflexes saved me as I managed to land in a perfect push up position a good 10-15 feet in front of those poles. I couldn’t believe it… It was instinctive, almost natural.
This, my friends is a result of unstable surface training, and doing it with a brand new level of intensity. A level of intensity that provokes the inner animal and allows you to fully release your strength to compete for another, stronger day. Personally, I fight through my workout, rep after rep, beads of sweat pouring from all directions, doing exercises like:
- For example, doing a Super Slow Bent Leg Deadlift on Dyna Discs and I drive up through my hips, muscles perfectly balanced, and core tight as can be, wondering only for a split second whether or not I’ll make it to the top…
- Or maybe I’m hitting a Vertical Dumbbell Crossover Push Up with 10 second isometric holds every 1/3rd range of motion and my body wants to give out until I let go of it and give way to my inner strength…
- I might suggest rapid alternating Split Jumps with Olympic Presses side by side with Jumping Squat Bursts if you really want to challenge your soul…
My mind is focused on the goal of my workout; my soul already owns the moment and my body trembles as I reinvent the definition of difficult in my mind and take charge of this situation. I find inner strength that makes me feel unbreakable.”
Ok – we’re back. Now, how excited are you?
That’s what it takes. It takes mind power, determination, and intensity to survive in your battle for six pack abs.
My #1 Tip For A Kevlar Core is to realize the power of your mind.
You will win this battle; you have to. Prepare yourself.
