Shirt Gives Instant Abs

Monday, March 8, 2010 18:16 GMT

DALLAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Getting a set of killer abs is as easy as wearing a T-shirt.

Pony Printing has created the “6-Pack Abs Shirt,” a heat-activated tee that reveals a sculpted set of abdominals on the front.

If someone wears it while exercising they’ll get instant gratification because their sweaty body temperature will cause the abs to appear mid-workout.

Spokesperson Jeff Henderson says the shirt is going over well at marathons and sporting events. It serves as extra motivation at the gym, especially for scrawny guys or dudes with beer guts.

He was inspired to create it after seeing Jack Black don a regular shirt imprinted with abs.

Henderson figured that if fake muscles could make the tubby comedian look good, anyone else could benefit too.

The heat-activated “Degree Tees” can also be imprinted with other logos, as seen at ASI tradeshows. If there’s demand, muscle tees boasting a ripped 12-pack could be next.
