I'm Ethan U. and this is my story

What has happened so far on the program?

I’ve gained 10 pounds of lean mass, and dramatically increased my lifts – my deadlift sets went from 175 lbs to 285 lbs, for example.

What do you like most about the program?

I love the simplicity of the weight training (lift heavy!) that makes measuring my progress a breeze. If you do the same lifts, with the same sets, and the weight increases every week, you KNOW you’re getting stronger.

What are three other benefits of the program?

I work and attend graduate school at unusual hours throughout the week, so it’s great to have a demanding, effective fitness plan that requires less than an hour a day. When I really adhere to proper nutritional guidelines I feel so much more energized, and that’s absolutely essential to maintaining motivation. And making this kind of noticeable progress has made me feel much more confident.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

Absolutely, and I have. It’s a no-frills, no-shortcuts program that gives you the full set of tools you need to enjoy a lifetime commitment to full-body strength.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Like Mark Rippetoe says, “A weak man is not as happy as that same man would be if he were strong.” This program gave me a chance to continually prove that for myself.
