What has happened so far on the program?

Picture 1: 15% at 175 lbs (Beginning BLS, July 2011)
Picture 2: 22% at 220 lbs (Post Bulk, September 2013)
Picture 3 & 4: 12% at 195 lbs (Post Cut, June 2014)

Bench: 90 lbs to 245 lbs
Squat: 110 lbs to 305 lbs
Deadlift: 155 lbs to 355 lbs
Military Press: 90 lbs to 165 lbs

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

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.

What do you like most about the program?

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Set realistic goals, be patient and enjoy the process – making steady progress week to week mounts up to huge gains over time!

  • Great comparison. Mike – I’m doing the better leaner stronger year plan from your journal, but I don’t have a spotting partner. Is it sufficient to substitute the bench barbell presses for dumbbell bench presses? Or are they not as effective?

    Great work Harry !!!
    Mike it’s interesting to note that he started at 15% BF and bulked until 22% BF, which is not what you would ideally recommend. Maybe I have that wrong though.
    The reason I point it out is because I cut from 18% to 14% and literally couldn’t continue with the cut because I looked so small (130lbs and no abs) Honestly it wasn’t a good look!!! So I am now 2 months into a bulk, but have been worried that I will end up with too much fat and have a hard clean up job. The only way I think I can do this is to put about 30 lbs on with as muscle as possible and then try and cut the fat without losing too much muscle. I know it goes against the BLS programme of getting to 10% first before bulking but what are your thoughts.

    Many thanks
    DK
