What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?
I found Mike from an article he wrote on bodybuilding.com. After reading this I noticed that the information he was passing along was different than most articles I read on any bodybuilding site. His information was real.
I’ve been working out for 15 years on and off and have always had a better than average knowledge on the subjects of training and fitness, but never knew the details of macros. The information Mike gave in the article was a key insight to this great information. So, no, I had no hesitation in buying his book. I read Bigger Leaner Stronger and have since bought about 3 other books of his.
What do you like most about the program?
Workouts are intense, but simple. Nothing too complex. Also the information to customize your own nutrition plan to what works for you
How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?
This program is easy to follow and actually makes sense. Nothing is too complex. A lot of other programs try to make is seem as if there is a secret formula to getting the results you want. This keeps everything a level playing field for everybody. For the first two weeks after each workout I felt like I hadn’t done enough, but I still got sore. The workouts are hard, but short, sweet, and simple.
How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?
I am more confident in my knowledge about nutrition. I feel like I’m definitely on the right track to get to where I want to be.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I wish I had found this information 10/15 years ago. If you are looking for information on how to eat and train the right way to get phenomenal results naturally, this book is key. It offers you every bit of information you need with the research to back it up.
So often people are giving advice with no research to prove what they are talking about. The research is all throughout the book. This is what set this book apart for me. I was operating with a lot of outdated myths, like eating every 2-3 hours. This book is great for anyone from a beginner on into well versed bodybuilders.
