It is I, your king!⁣

Blare the bugles and beat the bongos!⁣

Hum the hymns and howl the hosannas! ⁣

Scourge the scandalous and salve the unsullied!⁣

For I bring you a whacking update from the wily update gods!⁣

Nearly two years ago, I put my hand to the plow on a NEW BOOK for you to like, love, and rub all over yourself.⁣

It’s called Muscle for Life, and here’s the sitch:⁣

There are millions of guys and gals in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond who are overweight, out of shape, and deeply unhappy with how they look and feel, and who don’t know what to do about it. ⁣

Many of these people have tried and abandoned many diet and exercise programs and swallowed pills, powders, and potions galore, and now, they’re afraid that nothing will work for them—that they’ll never get the fit, lean, and strong body they really want.⁣

Tens of thousands of these guys and gals have found their way to my books Bigger Leaner Stronger and Thinner Leaner Stronger, and while those books can work fantastically for people of all ages and circumstances, they’re more suited to younger, injury-free folk who want to eat and train like lifestyle bodybuilders.⁣

What about everyone else, though? ⁣

What about the gym-shy 45-year-old who’s never lifted a weight in her life but still wants to improve her body composition, health, and longevity? ⁣

What about the 35-year-old with a lot of weight to lose who isn’t ready to start squatting, bench pressing, and deadlifting heavy loads?⁣

What about the 65-year-old who needs a gentler and joint-friendlier way to get fitter, leaner, and stronger?⁣

Muscle for Life was tailor-made for these people and the many others like them—an a-to-izzard guide to gaining muscle and strength, losing fat, and getting healthy, at any age, regardless of where they’ve been and where they are.⁣

It’s releasing in January of next year and is already available for pre-order here:

I’ll be sharing all of the “deets” (do the kids say “deets” anymore?) as we get closer to the pub date, but while I have you, let me hit a few good Qs with As . . .

Should I read Muscle for Life if I’ve read Bigger Leaner Stronger or Thinner Leaner Stronger?

It certainly can’t hurt.

There’s plenty in Muscle for Life for readers of Bigger Leaner Stronger and Thinner Leaner Stronger to profit from, including . . .

  • New details on anti-aging strategies that actually work (according to science)
  • New thoughts, tools, and tactics for winning in the “inner game” of getting fit
  • New meal planning methods that allow you to control your calories and macros without a scale and measuring utensils
  • New training programs for men and women that form the perfect stepping stones into the Bigger Leaner Stronger and Thinner Leaner Stronger programs
  • New supplementation protocols specifically for golden agers
  • New premade cutting and lean gaining meal plans for men and women

That said, if you’re an advanced weightlifter who has mastered the fundamentals and is looking for new and interesting ways to eat and train, Muscle for Life isn’t for you. Beyond Bigger Leaner Stronger will suit you better.

Is the Muscle for Life program right for me or should I follow Bigger Leaner Stronger or Thinner Leaner Stronger?

Muscle for Life  will work best for you if . . .

  1. You’re in your 40s or 50s or older and are new or relatively new to strength training.
  2. You have a lot of weight to lose (25% of body weight or more) and are new or relatively new to strength training.
  3. You want to start doing strength training but don’t feel ready for heavy barbell training.
  4. You’re fit and want to brush up on the fundamentals and find simple ways to improve your diet and training regimens.
