What has happened so far on the program?

Clearly I have lost fat and kept the muscle I had. I only started to plateau when I cut my carbs down to 120g a day and on an 1800 cal diet on a 165lb man. I would say I had a solid 8-10 weeks of gaining before the plateau set in. It appears the extra calories (carbs) I have had in the last 2 weeks of bulking have me moving up and the plateau is vanishing.

What do you like most about the program?

It’s simple and to the point. No BS in it, just what you need to know to get the best results fast.

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

Nothing kept me from buying the book or starting a new program. Most of the exercises the book recommends I was performing. I only changed 4-6 exercises for my entire routine. The toughest part was the nutrition factor but once I got in to the swing it was a piece of cake.

What are three other benefits of the program?

Well, the book was a very easy read and described everything from the ground up. The HIIT training that he recommends in the program is great. I really do not like cardio, but it makes it quick and it is very effective.

The last benefit would be that if you have issues, comments, concerns, and more Mike will respond pretty quickly to email. He was quick to respond to any questions or comments I had. That made it worth it all really, to have that at your fingertips.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

Yes, because it works! There are no super-sets, no crazy lifting techniques, nothing other than proper technique, the simple exercises that work and what is needed and lastly, it was easy to implement into daily life.

If you consider yourself a hard gainer try it, if you have been lifting for years, try it, if you are new try it. Whats 10-12 weeks or expanding your experience to get results and if it does not work as planned, what have you lost? I doubt it will be muscle.

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.
