LEGION is Now Accepting Pre-Orders! Limited-Time Exclusive Discounts!

My line of workout supplements, LEGION, is now accepting pre-orders. Read on to learn more…


After working on it for nearly 8 months now, I’m proud to announce the launch of LEGION, my line of supplements! Pre-orders have begun, and I’m offering some pretty awesome discounts to kick things off.

In case you’re not already familiar with what I’m doing with LEGION, here’s the long and short of it:

The supplement industry could be best described by Obi-Wan Kenobi’s famous words: a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Here’s the bottom-line truth of this multi-billion-dollar industry:

While certain supplements can help, they do NOT build great physiques (proper training and nutrition does), and most are a complete waste of money.

Those are just the facts of the matter, and they will probably never change. (Well, maybe we can force change, but more on that in a second.)

So if that’s the case, then you might be surprised to hear that I’m launching my own line of supplements, LEGION.

What gives? Am I just a hypocritical sell-out? Should you grab your pitchfork and run me off the Internet?

Well, hear me out for a minute and then decide.

The first thing you should know is that I created LEGION with the purpose of not only bringing unique products to the supplement world, but of starting a movement.

Here’s what I know: with the already overwhelming amount of options out there, the last thing we need is yet another marketing machine churning out yet another line of hyped up, flashy products claiming to be more effective than steroids.

Too many products are full of low-quality ingredients, junk fillers, and unnecessary additives. There’s a distinct lack of credible scientific evidence to back up the outrageous claims made on labels and in ads. Active ingredients are almost always underdosed, which companies hide by using the telltale sign of fraud, the “proprietary blend.”

The list of what’s wrong with this industry goes on and on.

Well, I think things should be done differently, and I’m going to do something about it. I believe in being the change I want to see, and that’s what LEGION is truly about.

How do I think things should be done? Well, here’s a start:

  • No proprietary blends.

There’s absolutely no reason to use them for anything other than deception and fraud.

  • No “label filler” ingredients.

I have a simple standard: every ingredient used in a workout supplement should be backed by peer-reviewed, published science that demonstrates clear performance benefits.

  • No underdosing key ingredients.

Furthermore, I think ingredients should only be used if they can be provided at clinically effective dosages. That is, the exact dosages shown to be safe and effective in scientific research.

  • No artificial sweeteners.

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health, and that more research is needed.

  • No artificial food dyes.

Like artificial sweeteners, consumption of artificial food dyes might not be as harmful as some claim, but there is evidence that these chemicals can cause various negative effects in the body.

  • No exaggerated, deceptive advertising or endorsements. Call me melodramatic, but I feel like we’re getting slapped in the face every time we flip through a bodybuilding magazine.

Ad after ad feature hulking freaks hawking one pill or powder or the other as if it has anything to do with why they’re so big and lean.

How dumb do these marketers think we are?

  • No over-charging and under-delivering. How annoying is it to buy a $50 bottle of product only to discover that it only lasts 10 days if you follow the usage directions?

I think you will agree that these things need to happen sooner than later, and this is exactly what LEGION will offer.

LEGION will usher in a revolutionary line of workout supplements that outclasses everything else on the market. These products will be a standard by which all others can be judged.

I’m not just looking to build a company. I’m looking to build a culture.

I believe in respecting customers, telling things like it is, and delivering what I promise. I believe that honesty and integrity sell better than cutting corners and relying on ridiculous advertisements and lies.

I don’t just want to sell you pills and powders, I want to change the supplement industry for the better.

Will you join me? Will you become a legionnaire and help me fight the fight?

    Hi Mike, Congrats on getting your new supplements up and going! So I tried a few times to order and it says “added to cart” but then the cart is no where to be found on the site. I have deleted the history / cookies etc. and logged back into the site and tried all over but same issue. I will try again tonight from home or something.

    • Michael Matthews

      Thanks Gus! Really strange–you don’t see the cart icon in the upper right-hand corner?

      My Web guy is looking into it right now…

      • Gus G.

        No cart icon there. I will go to a different computer and try again and then I will try from my home computer when I get home if it doesn’t work. I kept adding things to my cart thinking it would show up, your system probably has me down for like 96 items in my cart haa… I will put the right amount in when I can get to the cart. Thanks for getting back to me quick like this Mike 🙂

        • Michael Matthews

          That’s really strange. Please do let me know if it’s still an issue on another computer, and with which browser(s).

          Also I’m assuming you’re not logged into an account when this is occurring?

          • Gus G.

            Mike, I just got home and ordered from my home computer and everything went great. It just didn’t work on the computer at work, should have known that it was nothing wrong on your end. All is great here, looking way forward to your wonderful products and again big Congrats to You!

          • Michael Matthews

            Oh great, thanks Gus! Glad to hear that! Thanks again for your support. You rock!

  • Tom Ness

    Hey Mike, quick question – right now, I work out in the AM. Going off advice I’ve received, I’ve been taking creatine (CreaPure), a BCAA, glutamine and Jack3d – the BCAA since I work out typically before I eat in the morning.

    Would your Pulse replace the BCAA and Jack3d, or how would it fit into my current line up?

    • Michael Matthews

      Cool I also train early in the morning.

      Pulse replaces Jack3d (and destroys it–a much better formulation if you compare), but not the BCAAs because the leucine in the BCAAs is what fights the catabolism that comes with fasted training.

      I would take the creatine and glutamine after your training. Shameless plug: check out my creatine and glutamine–you get a bit more for your money.

      Hope this helps!

    Hey Mike, are you planning to make Legion available on Amazon? I’m a huge fan of their Prime program – it’s where I get all my supplements – 2 day free shipping that I can track! The only thing I can’t get there is my pre-workout – right now I am on Stoppani’s Pre JYM (on Bodubuilding.com only) but would love to try Pulse! Amazon availability would be a huge + for me

    • Michael Matthews

      Yes absolutely! I love Prime–I buy EVERYTHING I can off AZ, haha.

      Our products will be ready to rock on AZ within a few weeks.

  • barbell

    mike why whey isolate over regular whey?

  • Morgan

    Hi Mike, just wondering, will you be shipping to Australia at all?
    Thanks, Morgan

  • David

    While promoting natural supplements, your Pulse looks to be not that. Maltodextrin and artificial ingredients goes against everything you say here.

    • Michael Matthews

      Haha there’s less than one gram of malto per serving, and it’s merely to mask the bitterness of the aminos.

  • craigo

    Hi mike. Bit of a newby at all this. Began a weight loss journey late last year. Tracking my intake accurately being active, working out a bit and supplements are making difference in my life, 11kg down and counting. For what its worth, i’m taking oxyshred and bsc hydroxy pro clinical and sometimes a w.p.i protein. I would like to try your line of supps! I.m especially keen to get hold of some phoenix mike but am in australia. Supps aren.t cheap here and the hip pocket is stinging a little. Ta mate, Craig.

  • Any thoughts of sample sizes for your pre-workout mixes? I have been itching to try your Legion pre but I am hesitant to drop $40 on a full sized container. Not that I am implying that your pre is bad or anything, I just have a pretty tight supp budget and want to try it before I switch to another.


    • Michael Matthews

      Yessir! We’ll be doing that soon! I understand!

      • Thanks! I will be looking forward to that.

        • Michael Matthews

          Me too! 🙂

  • David

    Hi Mike. Any progress on setting up a distributor in Australia yet?

  • Dan

    Hello Mike. I’m in sunny England and was wondering how best to get hold of your products.

    Big thank you for the bls book. Really opened my eyes



    • Hey hey!

      We can ship to you but don’t have an EU distributor just yet.

      Thanks so much! Really glad you liked it.

  • Tenno Twoo

    Hi Mike. I am very keen on the Legion supplements but I am in Australia. I’ve read through some of the older posts, any updates on when it will be available here? Cheers.
