What has happened so far on the program?

I have basically been cutting and have lost almost 20 pounds and 9% body fat.  I think the compound lifting helped tremendously. My max weights are up significantly in all areas.  I am anxious to see my results as I begin the bulking phase.

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

Nothing kept me from buying the book.  I didn’t know anything about Bigger Leaner Stronger when I saw it on Amazon and downloaded a preview. From there I was hooked.  It looked much more simple yet defined and understandable than anything I had tried before.

Other programs have you in the gym for many more hours with no real defined goals – just a bunch of trendy workouts.  It is very apparent that Mike really wants you to succeed and that went a long way with me.

What do you like most about the program?

The program is very simple to follow.  I was very impressed with the research that Mike does whether it is on the nutritional or weightlifting side. I have spent a lot less time in the weight room and less time with cardio.  With that said, the time I do spend is much more productive and has showed results that I had previously not seen.

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

Mike was spot on in explaining workouts that don’t work.  That was basically me.  I was putting in a lot of work with no results.  I was not sure whether to go light and high reps, heavy with low reps or somewhere in between.   Everything I thought I was doing right, wasn’t right.  I was spending far too much time with no results thinking, “That’s just my makeup, I don’t have the genes to make dramatic improvements,” or, “Perhaps I’m too old.”

I kept trying various workouts and never had a solid plan. Once I was fully committed to Mike’s philosophy on diet, working out, and cardio I started seeing improvements immediately.

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

It’s uncomfortable for me to say but I do feel more confident. I also have more energy and need less sleep.  My blood sugar is also down into normal ranges.  It’s like night and day.  I don’t drag myself to the gym, I go there with a purpose and enjoy working out. I have a defined plan and goals.

I don’t guess at meals anymore – if I don’t know everything about the food that’s in front of me I don’t eat it.  While I still get to enjoy many different foods I know my limitations. I know what macro nutrients I need to stay on course.  I basically have a plan.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

At 53 I didn’t know what to expect as far as results. At 54 I am in the best shape of my life.  I am actually still fairly new to the program so I am expecting more as I begin the bulk phase.

Be fully committed in all areas: diet, weightlifting and cardio.  Although Mike provides and resources to an extensive amount of information and research (basically proof), his plan is really quite simple to follow – you just have to follow it.

Get a food scale and weigh your food, know exactly what you are eating.  Don’t be afraid to document your progress – it is essential to make gains.

Refer to his books frequently, take advantage of his website, subscribe to his emails, and watch his podcasts. Mike’s program is like none other.

I am not where I want to be (yet) but I am much further along than I ever thought was possible.  It is never too late to start.

Finally, let other people know what you are doing.  It will help motivate you and give you encouragement.  I persuaded my wife to start Mike’s program and she looks and feels fantastic!

IT’S-ON-US MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE

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.

FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING

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.
