I started at 94kg and about 30% body fat. I’m am now 91.5kg and 17.6% body fat. I have lost about 13% body fat and gained at least 8kg of muscle.

Bench – started 65kg now at 100
Dead lift – started 60kg now at 140
Squat- started 60kg now at 130
Military press-started at 40 now at 65

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

My best friend (Lachlan Coleman) got me the book as a Christmas present last year. I am new to lifting and this is the first program I have ever tried. Due to the amazing results I have had so far this is the only program I will ever follow.

What do you like most about the program?

I really like that the workouts are not only challenging with intense lifting, but the program centers around short workouts which make it easy to fit into a busy lifestyle. I was surprised at how quickly and easily I achieved results.  Bigger Leaner Stronger is now a way of life for me.

How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?

This is the only program I have ever tried. The diet is easy to follow by regulating my calories, macros, etc. and I can still eat most of the foods I love within reason.

How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?

I feel more confident in all areas of life. I  have more energy than ever before and have never felt better.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Don’t wait to start the program, JUST DO IT !!! The best advise I can give to anyone is to make the program a way of life so that it becomes a daily routine that is easy to maintain. This program will change your life if you can commit to it. While there is a lot of misinformation and broscience out there, Bigger Leaner Stronger will set you on the right path.

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.


Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion, we hate profit so our shipping is 100% free!

Okay, we don't exactly hate profit, but we do offer 100% free shipping to everywhere in the world because it makes people you like happy, and that makes us happy.

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 $99.

Why the restriction on international orders?

Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.
