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

My progress pictures are 14 weeks into Thinner Leaner Stronger.

Weight: 138 lbs to 130.2 lbs

Body fat: 27% to 21%

Waist: 31″ to 29″

Hips: 39.5″ to 38″

Arms: 12″ arms to 11.75″

Legs: 23″ to 22.5″

What has happened so far on the program?

I started off the program cutting at 1500 calories and lost 5 lbs within 4 weeks. As I started to lose the weight, though, I noticed I had very little muscle definition, so I then upped my calories to maintenance, which is about 1700 calories a day for me.

I’ve been eating at this intake now for ten weeks and have dropped down to 130.2 lbs. My strength has progressed on every compound lift. My squats went from not even doing the bar–I could only do goblet squats with 25 lbs–and last week I hit a personal record of 95 x 4 x 3.

I didn’t do bench press for the first 4 weeks of the program either because I was scared of building a chest when my chest is already small, but I decided I should incorporate it for overall strength. I started benching just the bar and now I’m up to 75 x 4 x 3.

The deadlift was my hardest lift. In the beginning, I started with 65 lbs and I’m now up to 115 x 4 x 3.

Lastly, the military press is probably my favorite and easiest to do. I started with 15 lbs and I’m up to 55 x 6 x 3. I’ve incorporated cardio here and there but don’t really put much emphasis on it.

What workout split from the book did you use?

I used the 5-day split and worked out Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. I also added accessory work in addition to what is listed in the book.

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

Honestly, I found muscleforlife.com and the books and immediately purchased them. Something about the way Mike explains things and his knowledge really got me eager to try something I’ve never done before.

What do you like most about the program?

THE RESULTS! I’m completely in shock at how fast I’ve seen my body change. I never thought I’d be a girl lifting weights.

I’ve had friends in bikini competitions and, honestly, that’s not the look I was striving for, so lifting weights scared me off for a long time.

However, from reading the book and actually understanding everything, I have come to know now that I can make my body look the way I want and not “look like a man” as many people–including me–thought.

I never in a million years thought I would love this change so much that I would want it to become something I’d want to make a career out of.

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

I used to track calories with MyFitnessPal and didn’t know what I was doing, so I was eating at 1200 calories according to their calculations–granted I wasn’t working out at that time, but it still didn’t give me any results.

I now know what to eat and how much to eat. The workouts are awesome–I love it! 

To be honest, I didn’t even know about compound lifts until I read this book. My first time at a gym, I just stuck to the treadmill–not on any program–and didn’t know the first thing about fitness.

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

I’m so confident and happy in my own skin for the first time in 10 years. I have more energy–granted I have kids who take up most of that–but I feel like I can run and jump around with them and not feel like I’m gonna die!

Doing this program has absolutely changed my life and thinking, and I can say that I will be in this for the long-haul.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

I would recommend this program to anyone because it’s straightforward and there are no gimmicks. You do the work and you see the results.

It doesn’t cost thousands of dollars to pick up the book, read it, and put it into action. Just from looking at my progress and the progress of others, the program speaks for itself.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Don’t wait! Don’t make excuses!

Get the knowledge from the book and use the program and I guarantee you’ll be addicted and want to continue it. If you put in the work, it will show.

Did you use any Legion supplements?

I do not use LEGION supplements as of now, but I plan on trying some out really soon. I didn’t know about how good they actually were until further in the program and following the pages on Facebook and Instagram.

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.
