Maxwell's Progress

Progress Image 8 Weeks

What has happened so far on the program?

I started at 213.7lbs and now I am at 184lbs. Also, all of my lifts have gone up – here are a few:

Bench 5RM 185 to 235lbs
Deadlift 5RM 205 to 315lbs
Squat 5RM 205 to 285lbs (I had bad form for the first couple months and back tracked to work on form)
Seated Military Press 5RM 105 to 160lbs

What do you like most about the program?

I like that fact that I am in and out of the gym in 45min to an hour and that I see more results than the dude who is there for over an hour and a half each day.

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

Honestly, there is a lot of free info on the web but most of it is crap. With this book I knew I was getting a good product and I was willing to pay for the experience. However, because that free info existed I was reluctant to spend the money until I settled on the mindset that you get what you pay for.

What are three other benefits of the program?

1. Tracking progress in a journal and not worrying about the mirror keeps my mind right from week to week.
2. Knowing exactly what weight I am going to be lifting/trying my next time in the gym.
3. I only lift 4 days a week (I don’t do the arms day) and I do cardio 1 day. So having my rest days on Friday and Saturday is really nice for me.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

Absolutely! For all of the above mentioned reasons, plus the fact that you can set a goal for yourself and if you plan correctly in your journal than you should have a pretty good target date of when you could conceivably reach that goal. Man does it feel good.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I only eat 3 meals a day because I like to eat until I am full and I don’t always have time to stop and eat while at work, so this program can work for anyone.

    congratulation .very great job. . You do cardio only once a week? Can I ask you something? Did you take less calories than you burn in the last 5 months? thanks

  • Lisa Cockington

    Great progress for 5 months! I’m interested to know why you choose to skip arms day? Is it because you feel that arms get a good enough workout through compound training?

    • Michael Matthews

      Yes that’s why. Some people’s arms grow very quickly and it actually becomes a problem because the bigger your arms get, the bigger your shoulders need to be to compensate.
