Not a lot, I was a complete novice at the time. I only just getting started in the industry so I thought I’d work my way through some of the higher-rated training and nutrition books/sites online.
The simplicity of its set up. The results we’re consistent week to week, making the process faster and easier (for a natural lifter) than most other programs.
It’s suitable to all levels of weightlifters. As I became more advanced, upper/lower and full body training became way too taxing whereas Bigger Leaner Stronger has been suitable from Day 1 to now.
The nutrition is a lot less restrictive, more flexible, enjoyable and sustainable than any “clean eating” protocols.
My consistency with being organized and disciplined has gone through the roof, I was pretty much a lazy teenager when I started! The program definitely helps demonstrate the results from small, concrete improvements over time, fully relatable to work and relationships.
Set realistic goals, be patient and enjoy the process – making steady progress week to week mounts up to huge gains over time!
