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.

    Excellent job as always! I’m looking forward to you setting your plan in motion about a Legion warehouse in Europe! : )

    • Thanks man! Yeah I’m looking forward to it too, haha. Next year!

    Hi Mike. Enjoyed watching the informative video. You briefly talked about rice and pea protein. I currently use pea protein only called Clean Lean Protein from Nuzest. Have you heard of it before? If so, what do you think of it.

  • Amy

    Dude, the thought literally crossed my mind today that my protein powder tasted exactly like flour…. good to know about the fraud in the industry, I had no idea : I wish you had a dairy free protein option! I saw in a comment though that you are looking to eventually do an egg. I will follow one of your recommendations. Thanks!

    • Yep, that’s how things are in the supplement industry unfortunately…

      As you said, I do have plans for it! I just have a few other products ahead of it on the pipeline.

      Sounds good! My pleasure!
