I am a 55yr old from Australia and have been weight training virtually nonstop since I was 19…thats a lot of reps.

I have tried a lot of programs and read many books but was just going through the motions for the last few years until I found BLS on the internet and it inspired me to get serious again. I was also shocked by the photo my wife took of me!

I like the fact that Mike’s book set out a sensible progressive program that was doable and could be tailored to ones situation. It helps that Mike looks like a lifter also!

I liked the idea of intervals and that doing endless cardio is boring and pretty useless anyway and that warmups are essential but must be exercise specific..Most of all Mike points out that, like most things in life, there is no quick fix and that it is a long jouney requiring discipline and commitment.

My before photo was shot last year so there was no 3 month miracle. Mike was very helpful and answered all my questions in detail the next day and also helped develop a program for my wife Sonia who has benefitted from incorporating more weights in her training. My only advice would be to train within the limits of your own unique genetic make up and potential…don’t try and be another Arnie..just the best version of yourself.

It helps of course that you actually enjoy the process of working out and getting bigger, stronger and leaner. I would like to thank Mike for all his help and wish him and his family all the best in the years to come.

P.S. I would also like to thank my lovely wife Sonia who loved me fat or ripped and had to endure countless discussions regarding my last workout!

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.
