I'm Chad P. and this is my story

How many months’ progress do your pictures represent? What were your stats for each picture?

The pictures represent about 10 months on the program.

What has happened so far on the program?

When I started the program I weighed 215 lbs and after the first ten months I am down to 175 lbs and 11% body fat. I have been cutting through the program so far as weight loss was my main goal, but now that my weight is down I’m going to try and bulk up some.

My strength has increased greatly from where I started. I’ve added 90 lbs to my bench, 130 lbs to my squats, and 100 lbs to my deadlifts.

What workout split from the book did you use?

I’ve used the 5-day split throughout the program. After each deload week, I can’t wait to get back to work! It has become such a part of my routine now.

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

I was relatively inexperienced when it comes to strength training so I wasn’t sure if I could do it, I struggled a little at first but pushed through and I am so glad I did because it’s really paying off now.

What do you like most about the program?

I like that the Year One Challenge has all the workouts laid out for you. All you have to do is dial in your weight for your working sets and follow along. It’s not complicated and you are not doing endless reps over and over.

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

This is by far the most success I’ve had on any program I’ve ever tried.

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

I definitely have more energy and confidence. I now get asked all the time about what I am doing and how I am getting in shape by friends and co-workers, I always point them towards Bigger Leaner Stronger.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

I’d recommend the program to anyone looking to challenge themselves and change their lives by getting in the best shape of their life, it’s been a life changer for me.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Just stick with it and it will pay off. Stay consistent, determined, and take pictures. There were times early on when I would get discouraged a bit but I would compare pictures from when I started to where I was at. I noticed the changes and it would push me to continue on.

Did you use any Legion supplements?

I used Whey+, Pulse, Phoenix, Recharge, and Forge and think they are great supplements.
