What has happened so far on the program?

The before and after are a little over a year apart, but at first I did not know much about my macros and whatnot, so I just lifted heavy for a few months before reading Mike’s book. Then I began bulking for 6 months using the 6 day split from Beyond Bigger Leaner Stronger.

I gained 25 lbs and then I cut and lost 26 lbs in 12 weeks. My week by week stats can be seen @hunterlapeyrefitness.

On my bulk I got up to 208 lbs then cut down to 182 lbs in the 12 weeks. I have since reverse dieted and am bulking again.

My strength has skyrocketed on the program. My lifts are as follows:

Bench Press – 205 lbs to 365 lbs

Squat – 285 lbs to 425 lbs

Military Press – 135 lbs to 225 lbs

Deadlift – 285 lbs to 545 lbs


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

I played D1 Baseball at my university and was not happy with the results from weightlifting on their program. After injuring both my knees I decided I was going to find one that works.

Eventually, after sifting through a lot of BS, I found Mike’s book and, after some research, I bought it.


What do you like most about the program?

I really like how everything is grounded in science. The program has been incredibly easy to follow (except for deload weeks haha) and the results came much quicker than expected.


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

The only other program I have followed were sports programs, so I do not have much experience with real programs.


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

The biggest change is productivity and energy. Both have gone up significantly since I began lifting regularly.


Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I would absolutely recommend this program due to it being completely based off of science. The proof is there. Work hard, be consistent and the results come.

Don’t get frustrated. Achieving weightlifting goals is definitely a journey, so it will take time. Just enjoy the process.

If everyone gained the muscle as quickly as they wanted, they wouldn’t be able to lift after a couple of years and we’d all look like Arnold.

I also used all of Legion Athletics’ supplements during my transformation. 🙂

    Brother I eat 5 eggs per day in which 4 are egg whites and one whole egg. Somebody told me egg yolks are too have a high source of protein. Please tell me should I eat egg yolk or not. Currently I’m into strength training with 5 to 8 reps.

    • Good question! Taken from Examine.com:

      “In healthy people, even 6 eggs/day (the highest intake studied) doesn’t seem to adversely affect blood lipids. Some studies note no change in HDL or LDL; some note a benign increase in both; few note adverse changes in lipoprotein status.

      In healthy people, eggs have never been directly associated with an increase in cardiovascular risk — such an increase was merely assumed from an increase in circulating cholesterol.

      In unhealthy people, 1–4 eggs/day combined with a healthy low-carb diet may actually improve lipoprotein status (an effect likely due to the low-carb diet more than to the eggs).

      In unhealthy people with an obesogenic diet (notably one high in carbohydrate), egg consumption might negatively affect blood levels of cholesterol and lipoproteins.”

  • Impressive transformation, congratulations! I’d be trully happy to see such improvement in my training in the upcoming 12 months 😉
