Scott's Progress

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

The pictures represent 7 months’  progress.

My weight has increased 10 pounds.

Body fat went from 20% to 12%.

What has happened so far on the program?

I cut for 4 months because I wanted to get rid of my gut, see my abs, and see how I looked at 10% body fat, but I looked too thin for my liking. I did a maintenance meal plan for a few months to gain back body fat slowly to see what look I liked best. I’m now getting ready to start a bulk cycle to increase size and strength.

What workout split from the book did you use?

The 5-day split.

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

I’ve done cardio programs in the past, but never a strength training program. I was worried about my lack of experience, but Bigger Leaner Stronger got me going with no problems.

What do you like most about the program?

I like the layout of the one year workout plan. I don’t have to spend time wondering what I should be doing.

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

Cardio sucks, so this strength training program was head and shoulders above the cardio programs I had been using.

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

It’s definitely a confidence boost! I’m creeping up on 37 and I feel better than I’ve felt in years.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

Hard gainers. This is the first time I’ve experienced an increase in muscle mass.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Stick with it long enough for the habit to set in.

Did you use any Legion supplements?

More from Legion


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 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.
