Muscle for Life Success: Kenny M.


"I lost 40 lbs while gaining muscle and strength!"

Kenny's Progress

What has happened so far on the program?

170lbs, BF approx. 20-25%
132lbs, BF 7%
Squats – 75kg to 95kg
Deadlift – 70kg to 115kg
Shoulders Press – 30kg to 52kg
Bench Press – 50kg to 65kg

I have been attending a gym for about the last ten years on and off, but have never made any real progress, and it wasn’t until I started reading a Men’s Fitness book approximately 18 months ago that I began with a regular training program.

But then I moved onto Bigger Leaner Stronger, and more recently Beyond Bigger Leaner Stronger, which transformed not only  my body, but my whole lifestyle to the extent that I have now enrolled on a gym instructor’s course with view to develop this further onto personal training and help others.

What do you like most about the program?

I had used a men’s fitness book previously, and was looking to buy another from Amazon, but Mike’s book had rave reviews, and the rest is history, so to speak.

Everything Mike says is simple and makes sense, and the great thing about it is you start to see results quite quickly. I am reading the Beyond Bigger Leaner Stronger and really have noticed a difference in other areas of my life. I am more focused, especially in my career.

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

In addition to the above, the workouts can be completed in less than an hour, which is ideal for my hectic lifestyle. Mike offers great tips and isn’t afraid to refer you elsewhere.

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

It has helped me focus more at work, and I have been promoted. My time management is much better, the opening chapter in BBLS, really struck a chord with me.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Mike has always been there with any tips and advice, and always messages me back, which is reassuring and great support for anyone. Knowing that someone has got your back is worth more than any book!

    Hello mike. Please check your message notifications on Google +. Have a question about exercises laid out in your 1 year challenge. Awaiting your response. Thanks.

    • I replied to you there brother. 🙂

        Many thanks to you. I always appreciate your quick and timely responses to your fans. But the question is not about the Google hangouts (that was just a proposal 😉 I think you you didn’t turn on direct messages from people you do not follow on Google+. And hence didn’t get my private message. I can use email instead.

    Hey Mike!

    Can you please give me your honest opinion on which path I should follow? I’m 5’8 and used to be 125 but bulked up to 150lbs:


    The lighting isn’t the best and I’m not flexing. I’m torn between cutting and continuing lean bulking (I’d like to see really visible abs for the first time in my life, but I’d also like to gain muscle mass and I’m afraid of getting too skinny (like I used to be…)).

    What’s your opinion?


    • If you want to focus on getting leaner, then I’d recommend continue with cutting. And if you’re new to this style of lifting, you’re probably going to build muscle anyway, so you really can’t lose.

      Once you reach your BF% goal, you can reverse diet into bulking cals and focus on making gains. 🙂

    Hi Mike.

    I read your book this weekend and I tried tweeting this but got no response so here I go:

    Due to family situation I cannot diet, I am a student, and even though I have a family gym membership I have no way to actually follow any diet. My parents cook for 3 children and can’t afford the time/money to have me follow any diet

    The food is still healthy and I will be avoiding any kind of ‘cheat meal’

    My question is will the plan still work for me? How can I ‘work’ in this situation?

    Your book is amazing and I plan to start the workout this week, but I would love to know if I should make any adaptation or compensation to work around my ‘diet’ (or lack thereof)

    • Thanks for reading my book and writing! I really appreciate it.

      I hear you on not being able to track your cals. You can still get results with out tracking your cals, but they won’t be as consistent without knowing exactly how much you’re eating of what.

      To make sure you’re getting results, make sure you’re weighing yourself weekly so you can adjust how much you’re eating based off results.
