I'm Eric G. and this is my story
How many months’ progress do your pictures represent? What were your stats for each picture?
There are 5 months between the pictures (July 2017 – December 2017).
First pictures are a month after I started the program and the last two pictures are the 6th month after reading Bigger Leaner Stronger.
First pic – 187 lb and about 18% body fat. Second pic – 172 lb and around 12% body fat.
What has happened so far on the program?
I’ve only been cutting, but I’ve also seen some gains. I have seen the most success when I do intermittent fasting (I don’t eat breakfast other than some chocolate milk after my 5am workout).
Bench went from 205 lb to 240 lb. Front and back squats have increased 40 lb and 65 lb, respectively. My deadlift has increased the most, from 185 lb to 355 lb.
What workout split from the book did you use?
I didn’t follow an exact split from the book–I used my own variation of a split from the book.
What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?
Nothing. I have a friend who saw HUGE gains by following Bigger Leaner Stronger. I wasn’t happy with my workout progress and wanted something different.
What do you like most about the program?
The food aspect is easy to follow and track–it’s just staying honest with yourself and sticking to it.
How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?
I’ve seen success. For me, it was just reading the book and staying motivated.
How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?
I definitely have more energy during the day!
Who would you recommend this program to and why?
Anyone that is looking for a change and ready to commit.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Read it and try it. Don’t let the workout routine be daunting to you. Start small and work your way through it. You WILL see a difference.
Did you use any Legion supplements?
I used the pre-workout, Pulse!
