If you want a "paint-by-numbers," step-by-step blueprint for building a muscular, lean, strong body...faster than you ever thought possible...then you want to check out my bestselling books.

Here's a little sneak peek of what you'll learn inside...

  • The 7 biggest muscle building myths & mistakes that keep guys small, weak, and frustrated. (These BS lies are pushed by all the big magazines and even by many trainers.)
  • How to build meal plans that allow you to build muscle, lose fat, and get healthy with ease…eating foods you love (yes, including those deemed “unclean” by certain “gurus”)…and never feeling starved, deprived, or like you’re “on a diet.”
  • The 5 biggest fat loss myths & mistakes that keep women overweight, disappointed, and confused. (These BS lies are pushed by all the big magazines and even by many trainers.)
  • An all-in-one training system that delivers MAXIMUM results for your efforts…spending no more than 3 to 6 hours in the gym every week…doing workouts that energize you, not wipe you out.
  • A no-BS guide to supplements that will save you hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars each year that you would’ve wasted on products that are nothing more than bunk science and marketing hype.
  • And a whole lot more!

The bottom line is you CAN achieve that “Hollywood body" without having your life revolve around it. No long hours in the gym, no starving yourself, and no grueling cardio that turns your stomach.

My book will show you how. Get it today and let’s build a body you can be proud of.

      Mike – This podcast hasn’t shown up in iTunes, as they typically do. Will it be posted there soon? Thanks.

    Hey Mike,
    I do a lot of long drives for my job, so you’re in the car keeping me company with the podcasts!! Any update on the Stacked app?
    Keep up the great work!

    • Happy to join you for the rides!

      The beta for Stacked should be running in about three weeks! It should be fully ready for the app store in 2-3 months. 🙂

        Just saw the email! Great!
        Sorry if you have been asked that a million times..

  • Morgen

    Another great podcast! Thanks, Mike! 🙂

    PS. Speaking of Contreras, you guys should totally do a podcast together (maybe on his views on how women should train?)! 😀

    Mike, Been wondering this for a while: If you max out your gains in terms of strength, but never really add any size, assuming you’ve hit a plateau in the amount of weight you can lift, can you still add size to your frame?

  • Mitchell

    This episode isn’t on iTunes yet, are they all released there later or is this a mistake?
