I bought Bigger Leaner Stronger and a couple of other audio books because I was interested in general health, nutrition and fitness. I didn’t initially buy the book to start any particular program but this is when it eventually started to come together.
I started to understand about TDEE, correct macro nutrient ratios to build muscle and most importantly how to train with weights. Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Presses and Military Presses were never in my routine before, I didn’t even know what there were and had to look them up on the internet.
The audio book BLS proved to be the most useful to me, it was easy to follow and almost immediately I started to see results.
This is the first program that I’ve tried, I particularly like it because I can adapt it to what I like to do. I keep the main lifts as recommended in BLS in all my workouts and add in others that I enjoy doing but always follow the BLS principles.
The health benefits are phenomenal, improved blood pressure, energy levels, stamina and I actually enjoy eating a healthy diet, tracking calories and training.
From the start you got to want to do this, you can`t just give it 50 or 60%. It is 100% or nothing with both nutrition and training until you reach your goal.
