What has happened so far on the program?

This question is two parts, what has happened to me and what has happened to those around me. I am stronger and hungrier to stay active, as a result became a more positive and confident person because it starts from the inside. Muscles are developing in areas I last saw in high school. I have more balance throughout my body where I don’t struggle to run or lift but yet feel more flexible. Being accustom to better food I cook for myself, I can often decipher badly prepared food through smell, taste, or their after effects. The discipline and focus after adjusting my diet and workout has impacted everything from my career to my home life. I have no problem keeping up with the energy of my 4 year old and the wife has noticed the things I can micromanage and multitasking has improved at home and at work. Family and friends are blown away with what I accomplished in less than 20 weeks!

What do you like most about the program?

This is a simple response. Back to the basics about food, what our bodies do with it, and what we yield in the gym from it. Have I read what Mike’s is reiterating before? Yes. What is different is that he makes the progression of knowledge simple to understand, it sticks to me, and removes all the sugar coated BS that the industry has been selling – including supplements and crazy sample workouts published with more reps than the mortgage bubble.

What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?

I have read a few blogs, books, and many articles and thought that Mike’s BLS (Bigger Leaner Stronger) was no different. Boy, was I wrong. It started with Maximum Muscle and it changed my thinking. Curiosity always gets the best of me and I figured, what do I have to lose for less than lunch money? So I picked up his BSL e-book to continue studying in detail how basic working out really is. After finishing the book, what almost prevented me from beginning the program was the cost of food and supplements. However, reality is I spend just the same amount as before, but cut out junk from the receipt. Also, who wants to track their workout and food intake when they haven’t before? With technology these days and apps like JEFIT, CalorieCount, and Myfitnesspal – it’s a no brainer when tracking my workout and macros.

What are three other benefits of the program?

1. How to promote muscle growth with simple and short routines. 2. Timing of diet. 3. The attention we expected from those around you or the opposite sex and the feeling you’re a part of a private society.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

Wholeheartedly, YES because it simply works. This is a great book to build or rebuild everyone’s dieting and workout foundation. Truly, after reading BLS I can expect everyone to be a little bit more educated to read between the lines the next he/she reads an article or blog. My thoughts can sound bias; however I also encourage the same person to challenge everything written in BLS as I have. This book is not the end all of guides, but a great addition to the library. Just be sure it’s placed above the magazines and crap dieting books in case of flood, if not – you’ll be fit enough to run or swim away long before then anyway.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Yes, could I get my $7 back? Buying a whole new wardrobe sucks!

So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $199.

Why the restriction on international orders? Unfortunately, shipping abroad is very expensive, and if we didn’t require a minimum order size, we’d lose a lot of money.

That said, as most international customers spend about $200 with us each time they shop, this setup is a win-win.

Clinically Effective Doses

Great ingredients aren't enough to make a great product—you also need correct doses.

That’s why we use the exact doses of every ingredient that have safely produced the desired benefits in peer-reviewed studies.

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.

Lab Tested

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Unlike some supplement companies, we don’t sell dubious white labeled or off-the-shelf formulations.

Instead, our custom and unique formulations are the result of extensive reviews of the scientific literature to discover the most effective ingredients for each.
