I'm Arie B. and this is my story
How many months’ progress do your pictures represent? What were your stats for each picture?
They represent 12 months.
What has happened so far on the program?
I was 200 pounds. I started with a cutting period for 9 months. I was down to 161 at my lowest point. At this time, I started bulking for 3 months.
My body fat was 20% and I was able to get it down to 8-9% range. I also went from a 36-inch waist to a 33-inch waist.
What workout split from the book did you use?
I do the 5-day split. Shoulders, arms, back, chest, & lower body. I also do 20-30 minutes of cardio every other day.
What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?
I found the book on Audible. I have always worked out but did not see results like this. The game changer for me was when I read that I should be working out in the 4-6 rep range and heavy. I started seeing results a few months after. I used to lift medium weight for 15 reps.
What do you like most about the program?
Before Bigger Leaner Stronger, I worked out for 2 – 3 hours. I love that I can work out for 1 hour and get better results.
How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?
Once I got used to the diet and the intermittent fasting, it became a lifestyle. I enjoy the energy I feel. I hardly ever feel tired anymore! I also wake up with a ton of energy.
How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?
My confidence level has completely changed. I feel much better about myself. I have more energy so I am able to do more.
Lastly, I am getting more done throughout the day. The only downside is that you will have to buy a new wardrobe, haha! But it is worth it 🙂
Who would you recommend this program to and why?
Anyone who is seriously considering a change in their diet and training. If you have been working out and you hit a wall with your results, get Bigger Leaner Stronger.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I wanted to add that when I reached out to Mike to ask a question, I wasn’t sure if I would get a response or if I would just get someone else who would respond, however, Mike made himself available to me directly. Thank you, Mike!
Did you use any Legion supplements?
No, I did not. But I did use yohimbine, HMB, leucine, creatine, glutamine, and protein.
