What has happened so far on the program?

I am 66 years old and from 2012 to now I lost 83 pounds!

First, I read Mike’s book Bigger Leaner Stronger and  it made sense to me. I wanted to get healthy as I have had 14 cardio stents placed into my arteries since 1999.

I began to go to the gym and at first I could not do 30 minutes on the tread mill. My weight exercises were a joke, doing only 3 sets of 6 pumps. But I stayed with it…touching base with Mike once and a while.

As my cardio improved I began to watch what I ate cutting the carbs and taking the Legion Phoenix fat burner. The weight began to drop.

I started using the preworkout Pulse as it is clearly labeled and there are no “blends”.

I endured and continued going to the gym every day…cardio 3 days a week and a body part each day for the other 4. Some said too much, but remember I was 62 and a cardiac patient so I was not straining and increasing weight slowly.

At first I used 10 lb. dumbbells. Today I use 30 pound dumbbells, choosing to do more reps rather than heavy. I do 8 to 12 sets of 12 to 15 reps each.

I am now able to and do 1 hour treadmill at level 15 speed, 3 times a week. I work out with weights 3 times per week, spending 2 hours in gym, 1 body part per day with 300 ab exercises each day (I am still working on a visible 6 pack).

 

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

I actually bought the book in paperback on Amazon without doubt.

 

What do you like most about the program?

The program works. I have modified it slightly but still continue the increase in weight and reps. I am very proud of my accomplishments.

 

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

The results encourage continuing. I listen to Mike’s podcasts on a variety of subjects and I appreciate the information he shares.

I have recently taken a part time job in a nutrition store and use the information I have learned from Mike in assisting customers select what to buy and how best to accomplish their goals.

I have dieted a lot over the years, I did Nutri-Systems, Jenny Craig, Adkins, Paleo and Miami Beach.

I lost weight on all of them but finally I knew I needed to change my life style and combine good nutrition and exercise.

 

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

I have boundless energy, I feel better than I did at 40 and am told I look 15 years younger. I have improved my all-around performance.

 

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I would and have recommended this program to others and still refer to it as my guide.

It works, and it is doable. The results keep you motivated and you feel better every day after your workouts.

My best advice to all men over 60 is don’t be afraid to do it.

Your life will improve, you will feel great and your bedroom activities will be as good as they were, or maybe better, then they were at 30.

I use the following Legion products:

Whey +

Phoenix

Pulse

Lunar

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 $199.

Why the restriction on international orders? Unfortunately, shipping abroad is very expensive, and if we didn’t require a minimum order size, we’d lose a lot of money.

That said, as most international customers spend about $200 with us each time they shop, this setup is a win-win.

Clinically Effective Doses

Great ingredients aren't enough to make a great product—you also need correct doses.

That’s why we use the exact doses of every ingredient that have safely produced the desired benefits in peer-reviewed studies.

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.

Lab Tested

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Unlike some supplement companies, we don’t sell dubious white labeled or off-the-shelf formulations.

Instead, our custom and unique formulations are the result of extensive reviews of the scientific literature to discover the most effective ingredients for each.
