What has happened so far on the program?

I am 19 years old over the course of 3 years I went from weighing 143 lbs and around 17% body fat to weighing 150 lbs but with only 9% body fat. 🙂

I started bulking and went from 143 lbs to 210 lbs. I was really fat…I didn’t track macros and didn’t log my training either.

I then went on a cut for 6 months using Bigger Leaner Stronger, eating 0.8g of protein/lb of body weight each day and re-feeding 2 times a week. I also was doing intermittent fasting, eating all my food in an 8 hour window each day.

My current one-rep max stats are:

Bench Press-264 lbs

Squat-286 lbs

Deadlift-352 lbs

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

Nothing. I simply checked out BLS online when I came across Mike’s channel while watching Kinobody.

What do you like most about the program?

I liked the simplicity of the program. It was easy to follow and make progress on! I made strength & rep pr’s each week.

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

The program allowed me to get stuff done without spending 2 hours in the gym. 1 hour in and out! I worked out early in the morning fasted with BCCAAs and coffee.

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

I’m much more confident around girls and just in general. I love to wear nice clothes now and walk around shirtless on the beach. 🙂

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I would recommend this to anyone looking to get in shape while enjoying life, family and friends. Everybody can do this. Just run the program and see for yourself!

But most important is that you can get in great shape without your life revolving around fitness and you can make your fitness revolve around your OWN lifestyle!

Push yourself, strive for personal records and follow the program. It seems low volume compared to the stuff you find online but as a natty intensity is key. You need to get stronger to grow.

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 profits so our shipping is 100% free!

Okay, we do dig on profits, but we also 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.
