I'm Travis R. and this is my story
What has happened so far on the program?
In approximately 4 months I gained 15 pounds (168 to 183), while dropping body fat from ~14% to ~12%. Some of my lifts were modified due to my recovery from both surgeries, but my dumbell bench press went from 85×6 reps to 120×4 reps, bent over dumbell row from 95×4 reps to 120×4 reps, seated military dumbell press from 60×5 reps to 85×5 reps and squat from 235×5 reps to 275×5 reps.
What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?
I’ve never really followed any other program before, I was a college baseball player so we lifted as a team and I had some prior knowledge about correct nutrition. Coming off a shoulder and an Achilles surgery, I needed something straightforward to follow to get me back or exceed my previous weight and strength, which I accomplished in both areas.
What do you like most about the program?
How easy it was to follow and also how effective it was. Most programs out there are gimmicky and promote some BS product, but with this one that was not the case.
How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?
My confidence, energy, sense of well being have all improved. Plus I learned things that I will continue to use for the rest of my life and be able to help educate others. Its very practical information.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I’d like to tell anyone who is on the fence to try this program. If you follow what he says, which Mike reiterates in the book, you will see results no doubt. It is not hard to do, lift really heavy weights to continue getting stronger and feed them in the recovery part with the correct macro nutrients. Cant go wrong with that and this book lays out exactly what I should eat and when and exactly how to lift when it comes to which exercises and how often.
