What has happened so far on the program?

I gained 31 pounds while bulking during my first year on the program. Over the next year I lost 29 pounds while cutting. My net muscle gain over these two years was about 12 pounds. I let my cut drag on too long, not gaining much muscle or strength during that year, but I wanted to get down to a single digit body fat percentage.

Over these two years I added over 70 pounds to both my Bench Press and Military Press. My Squat and Deadlift progress has been limited due to a knee injury. I would have gained more muscle had it not been for this injury.

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

I had never tried a 5-day split routine before, so I was skeptical as to whether I could make gains when only training a muscle group once a week. Other than the 5-day split, much of what’s in the book fit with my training philosophy, so I was eager to try the Bigger Leaner Stronger program.

What do you like most about the program?

I like that the workouts are intense, but not long. I can be in and out of the gym in under an hour.

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

I prefer the 5-day split of BLS over the 2-day split and full body programs I’ve tried in the past. The diet is similar to what I’ve done in the past, but the addition of a “refeed” day really helps when cutting.

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

The discipline required to stick to a weightlifting program and diet tends to influence other aspects of life. Rather than jumping from one hobby to the next, I find myself sticking with things, gradually putting in the time required in order to improve.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I like that in addition to his books, Mike writes articles and records podcasts, which are good sources of knowledge and motivation. The sequel to BLS, Beyond Bigger Leaner Stronger was released right when I was ready for something new, and I like the program so far.
