What has happened so far on the program?

I gained good amounts of strength and muscle. I lost fat and learned how to diet and train properly. This program had helped me find the body composition I was looking for. I started off at 180lbs and wasnt looking very impressive at all.

I then bulked for 12 weeks and managed to gain about 15 pounds. My strength on all my big lifts went up at a very steady pace. I also corrected my form on a lot of lifts. I completed a 8 week cut and made it down to 182lbs but I was much more happy with the way I looked.

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

I wasn’t sure which type of program I wanted to start. I wanted to get max results for my efforts and that is what this program gave me. After checking out the articles on the website, I was very impressed with all of the good information. So I bought the book and was sold right away.

I have tried many other programs before. Mostly the ones that offers, but was annoyed with how many supplements they try and push on you.

What do you like most about the program?

Following the program is very easy. What I like most was I felt like I was getting the max results for the effort I was putting in. You kind of zoom in on your strength with the low reps and you see progression on a weekly basis.

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

Other programs do not hold a candle to Bigger Leaner Stronger. With the great information in the book and articles, along with help from the Muscle for Life staff, answering all my questions, I couldn’t be more happy with every part of this program.

The diet was easy to maintain, I was never too hungry while cutting. The lifts were the best options for building strength and muscle.

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

I am extremely confident now and I have many other people asking me for advice and I just tell them to get the book and follow it. It’s simple.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I’ve tried many different diets and programs and have not seen anything close to the results I have accomplished on Bigger Leaner Stronger. I will continue training this way in the future. I agree with Mike, anybody can meet their fitness goals with the right tools, information and the willingness to make the small changes in their lifestyle to achieve them.

I am finishing up my tour overseas, I just completed another 10 weeks of bulking (gained 8 pounds) 7 weeks of cutting ahead of me (results and pictures to follow).

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.
