How many months’ progress do your pictures represent? What were your stats for each picture?

I have been training since I was in high school and have had times where I felt relatively satisfied but always seemed to fall short of my fitness goals. With the guidance of Bigger Leaner Stronger I was able to achieve levels of leanness I didn’t even know were possible age 54. My cut lasted about 12 weeks.

Before: 180 lbs and 17% body fat
After: 155 lbs and 8% body fat

What has happened so far on the program?

The program is very precise. It explains exactly what needs to be done to bulk and cut successfully. The eating plans are broken down to the macronutrient level leaving no guesswork, only math, and science and a guarantee for success. I was amazed as my body started to change.

My confidence grew and I learned I could do whatever I wanted with my body composition at age 54. I then decided to do something I wanted to do my whole life, compete in bodybuilding. I entered a Natural Men’s Physique competition and took first place in several categories!

What workout split from the book did you use?

I use the 5-day split. It’s great, you train each body part on its own day. Heavy compound lifts make up the program and you actually look forward to each and every workout.

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

Nothing kept me from buying this book. I already had a stack of ineffective books and I was searching for something that was more comprehensive.

The bottom line is Bigger Leaner Stronger is for people that what to become the best they can be, achieving high levels of fitness, without the use of drugs.

What do you like most about the program?

The program is straightforward and easy to follow. Bigger Leaner Stronger provides everything you need, the exercises, the routines, and nutrition. There are no questions left unanswered.

If you become skeptical, Bigger Leaner Stronger presents the consensus of scientific research to back everything up.

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

This book is vastly different than anything else I have read and tried. I hold a Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology and I can say that I learned more about the science of muscle growth, weight maintenance, and leanness from Bigger Leaner Stronger than my master’s program!

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

At age 54, I feel stronger and healthier than I have many years. My friends and family can’t believe how I have transformed my body. Quite honestly, I just feel more alive and can live in the moment and enjoy life. I also feel more prepared and capable to deal with stress.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

I have recommended this book to everyone and anyone interested in fitness and a better life. My friends and family consider me a fitness expert now. They ask me how it’s done.

My answer is simple, get a copy of Bigger Leaner Stronger or Thinner Leaner Stronger. I have even purchased their own copy for many of them.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Yes, I would like to recommend one of Mike’s other books, “The Little Black Book of Workout Motivation“. Its an amazing book and I refer to it often when inner resistance or self-doubt tries to derail me from my goals and aspirations.

Did you use any Legion supplements?

Yes, I really like Legion supplements. They are all-natural and effective. I use the following:

Genesis Greens Superfood
Recharge Post-Workout
Triton Fish Oil
Triumph Multi-Vitamin
Chocolate and Peanut Butter Protein Bars
Forge Fat Burner
Fortify Joint Support

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.

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.
