Publisher's Summary

International Best Seller

If you want to get bigger, leaner, and stronger without steroids, good genetics, extreme dieting, or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym...you want to listen to this book.

Because here’s the deal: Building lean muscle and burning stubborn fat isn't nearly as complicated you’ve been led to believe.

This book is the shortcut.

And guess what?

  • You don't need to: Spend hundreds of dollars per month on the worthless supplements that steroid-fueled bodybuilders "swear by." Most pills, powders, and potions do absolutely nothing.
  • You don't need to: Constantly change up your workout routine to gain lean muscle in all the right places. Muscle building is much simpler than that.
  • You don't need to: Waste a couple of hours in the gym every day grinding through grueling workouts you hate. In fact, this is a great way to get nowhere.
  • You don't need to: Slog away at boring cardio to shed ugly belly fat and get a six-pack. In fact, you probably don't have to do any cardio to get the body you really want.
  • You don't need to: Obsess over "clean eating" and avoiding "unhealthy" foods to get ripped. Instead, you can get and stay fit eating the foods you love.

Those are just a few of the harmful lies and myths that keep guys from ever achieving the lean, muscular, and strong body they truly desire.

And in this book you’ll learn something most guys will never know:

The exact methods of eating and exercising for gaining 10 to 15 pounds of lean muscle like clockwork...and it only takes a few months.

The bottom line is you can get that "Hollywood hunk" body without following a boring, bland "bodybuilder" diet or living in the gym.

This book shows you how.

So, click the “buy” button now, and begin your journey to a bigger, leaner, and stronger you.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Hypocritical Cash Grab w/ some good information

while the author did well to convey his scientific knowledge and good workout programming. The bashing of the fitness industry and propping up of his "free" bonus report (not free) left me with a sour taste. Clear Bias throughout.

Absolutely Brilliant... as a Hard Copy

This book was great, full of useful information, inspiring words and helpful advice. The only problem is that for a book like this, only about 50% is worth *listening* to - the rest is stuff you need to read, take notes on, and plan out. That’s why I’ll be returning it here on Audible, but DEFINITELY buy a hard copy.

Pros:
- Great narration
- Actionable information
- Advice and info not only limited to diet and exercise
- The author feels like his heart is in the right place
- Science-based (without references, though, at least in the audio version. Will be VERY happy if they are in the hard cover.)

Cons:
- Really a book you need to *read*
- The author sounded like an infomercial at times, which got quite grating, even though the info and points presented were mostly correct.

No nonsense, easy to understand, and effective!

I didn't write this review until about 6 months of actually following the advice in Bigger Leaner Stronger, But, I knew straight after listening that it was solid, reliable, science-based advice that cuts through all the BS and gave me the tools I needed to get where I wanted to be. My results following the advice in the book, even with my own small modifications, has gotten me in the best shape of my life (as cliched as it sounds, I know!) in only half a year.

Highly recommended listening. I followed it up with the Kindle version, as well as Mike's "Little Black Book of Workout Motivation" as I continued to progress through my BLS fitness journey.

Very comprehensive but speed needs 1.25x

Went through the first 10 hours of this book at normal speed and it was tough going. Super slow narration, I don’t know if it was a recording problem as the podcasts are nothing like this. Anyways, put it on 1.25x speed and it sounded ok.
Great content, covers every, very comprehensive.

Good for beginners

I suppose I thought I would learn something, so it's hard to say if this book was good or not, if you're a complete beginner it's probably going to give you a great foundation, but if you have anything more than the most basic understanding of diet and exercise you'll likely learn very little new information

Finally.

Exercising for nearly 15 years and my body has rarely changed; with it my body image issues. This book is amazing, three weeks in and everything seems so easy and simple. The book is narrated superbly so I could listen on my way to work or in the gym.

The book itself, not to mention the free material has changed the way I approach training. Most importantly, this is sustainable and I can easily see myself maintaining the diet and workout advice for years.

Thank you so much mate. Keep up the great work.

Science backed ! No BS

Wow so in depth science back methods and theory’s broken down into a easy to understand read, can get a little too technical you may need to stop and write things down or save as you move along.
May need to speed up the narrating as the pause between some words gets a little annoying but nevertheless great book ! Thank you for the greater understanding !

Couldn’t stand it.

Lost me when the author spend a whole 13 minutes reading quotes about how awesome he is. We get it. Pressed on but the authors voice is monotone and annoying
