No matter how old you are, no matter how bad you might think your hormones or genetics are, and no matter how lost you might feel after trying and abandoning past diets and exercise routines . . .

You absolutely, positively can have the lean, strong, and healthy body you dream about, and Muscle for Life will show you how.

Here’s the deal:

Building lean muscle and burning stubborn fat isn't nearly as complicated as you've been led to believe. You don’t need to give up any of the foods you like, do a bunch of workouts you hate, or fill your cabinets with bags and bottles of exotic pills, powders, and potions.

In Muscle for Life, you’ll find a science-based blueprint for eating and exercising that anyone can follow at any age and fitness level.

Imagine watching pounds of fat melt away without ever feeling like you’re “on a diet” because you look forward to every meal, every day. Imagine adding lean muscle to all of the right places on your body by doing just a few fun and challenging workouts per week that make you strong. And imagine realizing that all of your health and fitness goals—even the ones you’ve all but given up on—are finally within your reach.

Based on time-proven principles produced by decades of hands-on experience and thousands of hours of scientific research, Muscle for Life will give you a paint-by-numbers plan for transforming your body faster than you ever thought possible, including:

  • Conquering the “mental game” of fitness. Learn to hack your habits, willpower, and mindset so your fitness regimen feels like it’s on autopilot.
  • Harnessing the science of “flexible dieting.” A whole new paradigm for eating that empowers you to forever break free of fad dieting, crash dieting, and yo-yo dieting.
  • Unlocking the power of strength training. The “secret” to optimizing your body composition, which is far more important for your health, image, and longevity than your body weight.
  • Developing effective and sustainable eating habits. Find your way to eat that supports not only your health and fitness goals but also your food and lifestyle preferences.
  • Starting a fitness regimen the right way with a comprehensive 12-week plan. Building momentum is everything—if you can get the first 12 weeks right, you'll get the first 12 months right.

Whether you’re a beginner looking for a lifestyle change, a lifelong athlete looking to reach the next level, or somewhere in between, Muscle for Life will show you how to look, feel, and perform your best. And frankly, it may be the last fitness book you ever need to read.

Praise for Muscle for Life

"Mike Matthews is one of the most informed, intelligent and experienced fitness gurus on the face of the planet, bar none. His books are full of practical wisdom advised by his years of time in the trenches, his vigorous research and his hours upon hours of time interviewing experts about what works and what doesn't when it comes to optimizing not only your fat loss and muscle gain, but also your ability to stay in the fitness game for life."

"I read each and every one of Mike’s books, and you can't go wrong with Muscle for Life."

Ben Greenfield

"Muscle for Life is a breath of fresh air. Instead of passing fads and overhyped biohacks, Matthews gives us what we need: the time-tested principles and practices that have been shown to work."

Alex Hutchinson

“Read this book, implement its teachings, and you’ll never look back. With your health and fitness fully under your control, your body, and then likely your life, will never be the same.”

Dr. Spencer Nadolsky

"You don't just read Muscle for Life—you do it, and you get the body you’ve always wanted. It's never too late to get into the best shape of your life, so this is a must-read for anyone at any age who wants to lose fat, build muscle, and get strong . . . for life."

Mark Divine

Muscle for Life is meticulously researched, clearly written, and utterly practical. Matthews has created something special here.”

Strauss Zelnick

How does Muscle for Life differ from Mike’s other books?

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.⁣

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 like, love, and rub all over themselves, including . . .
