"The changes I have made are phenomenal and what BLS gave me has spilled over into my life in bigger ways."
What has happened so far on the program?
I am 24 years old and in 10 months on Bigger Leaner Stronger I gained 15 lbs of muscle while losing 2% body fat!
Gaining 15 lbs of muscle while still losing a couple percentage points of body fat has boosted my self-belief and self-confidence tremendously.
Mike doesn’t lie when he says the best way to build muscle is simply to pick up, push, or move heavy ass weight.
My bench has increased by almost 40%, deadlift by 50%, and military Press by 35%. Unfortunately, a recurring hamstring injury has kept me from really pushing squats but I can’t wait to see how I can improve it once I am 100% healthy
What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?
I had never tried a complete training program like BLS up until I read the book. As a collegiate soccer player, I was always in the gym but never had the type of structure and guidance that Mike provided.
I was a bit hesitant at first, thinking that my past 5 years of being in the gym had proven that it was near impossible for me to put on more muscle mass. I was dead wrong.
What do you like most about the program?
To me, the best part of the program was the simplicity. Mike is super knowledgeable but presents it all in a way that makes it easy for anyone to follow.
I never felt overwhelmed by the information or lost along the way with my exercises or my diet. The results occurred so much quicker than I would have thought possible.
Along with that, the custom meal plan from Muscle For Life was a game changer.
I always had watched what I ate but having my necessary macronutrients broken down and given to me in a meal-by-meal basis was the most helpful aspect of the program.
How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?
The program was more comprehensive than anything I had ever tried.
From the custom meal plan, to the exact workouts and exercises provided, to the personal support Mike is able to give-nothing comes close to what BLS and Muscle For Life provides.
How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?
The changes I have made physically are phenomenal and what BLS gave me has spilled over into my life in bigger ways psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually.
I have never been happier with my physique, but I also have never been more proud of my discipline, work rate, lack of excuses, and ability to grind through adversity in any and all aspects of life, not just in the gym.
I would recommend BLS to legitimately anyone. Whether they are looking to improve their physique, their strength, or their overall discipline in life.
With BLS you can lose fat and gain muscle in a healthy way, or simply improve your confidence in the gym. I am a firm believer that anyone from experienced lifters to first time gym goers can get something out of BLS.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Simply, I just want to say thank you to Mike and the whole Muscle For Life team. You all have helped me regain a greater sense of discipline in my life that transcends what shows aesthetically through my physique. I am more proud of the person I am today because of your help.
