I have been working out for almost a year before I started following BLS workout and nutrition plan. I was doing a program by Beach Body. I found it pretty good but it didn’t give me the results I wanted. It needed some modifications especially in nutrition section.
I was never into buying books and programs related to fitness & health because I always thought they don’t work. I got BLS book from a friend. Once I started using it I got addicted because of the results I achieved.
The thing I really liked about BLS and BBLS is that almost everything is explained in details. If its nutrition or workouts, they are explained in great depth with scientific facts supporting it.
I believe anything is easy if you stick to it. But the thing about this program is that it’s explained in such a great way that makes things look easy. Which makes you stay committed to it and of course the results make you push even harder.
The workouts in BLS, which are based on 6 x 6 routine. It’s more like balanced workouts which give you strength and stamina. You don’t have to spend several hours in the gym to achieve the body you desire. The workout period is small compare to other workouts and gives you the results you desire.
You don’t have to eat plain rice or just chicken and vegetables while dieting but you can eat anything you want as long as you keep track of it.
To be honest, almost everyone wants to be healthy and look good without a shirt. I feel more confident with the way I look and way people notice me because of how I look. No one even knew I exist before I start using this program. But now I see how people look at me and sometimes ask for my advice on workouts.
I feel more energetic after I am done with my workouts compare to the days when I don’t workout.
There is only one word and that is “consistency”. Be consistent with your workouts and your nutrition. If you be patient, you will see results and once you see the results. It will get easier.
