How many months’ progress do your pictures represent? What were your stats for each picture?

These pictures represent my 6 month progress from June 6th, 2017 to December 13th, 2017.

I had to stop the program for a few weeks due to traveling.

Weight: 152 lb to 138 lb.

Body Fat: ~ 20% to ~ 11%.

What has happened so far on the program?

My 6 month progress consisted of cutting (with a few weeks of interruption due to traveling), during which I lost more than 10 lb and gained significant strength.

My progress included: Bench Press: 5 reps of 145 lb to 6 reps of 155 lb. Squat: 6 reps of 115 lb to 5 reps of 145 lb. Deadlift: 6 reps of 165 lb to 6 reps of 205 lb. Military Press: 6 reps of 95 lb to 4 reps of 115 lb. Barbell Curl: 6 reps of 65 lb to 5 reps of 80 lb.

What workout split from the book did you use?

I used the 5-day workout split.

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

I had tried other programs, mostly with unsatisfactory results. It was hard for me to believe that I could achieve the body of my dreams. Given it’s science-based, straight-to-the-point approach, I decided to give Bigger Leaner Stronger a try–and I am so glad I did.

What do you like most about the program?

The program gives you everything you need, is simple and easy to follow, and allows you to eat the foods you like–I ate ice cream and sweets every day!

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

Other programs gave me diets and workouts that were inconvenient and hard to follow, not based on actual science, and barely produced any results. I could notice my progress with Bigger Leaner Stronger early on, which motivated me to keep going.

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

Throughout the program, I have improved my energy, focus, productivity, and sleep. Overall I feel healthier and more vital than ever. I am also more confident and happy.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

I would recommend this program to anyone–it is the easiest and most effective way to improve your health and fitness!

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

It is hard at first, but once you develop habits of eating healthy and working out, everything else naturally follows.

Did you use any Legion supplements?

I used Legion’s Chocolate Whey+! It tastes great and, unlike with other protein powers, my stomach feels great when I drink it!

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.
