The bottom line is that when all is said and done, most personal training clients waste thousands of dollars to make poor gains and quit out of disappointment. It’s not all gloom and doom, though. There absolutely are great trainers out there who are in awesome shape themselves, who do know how to quickly and effectively get results in others, and who do care about their clients. If you’re one of them and you’re reading this book, I applaud you, because you’re carrying the weight of the entire profession on your shoulders. So, the title of this chapter is “Why Bigger Leaner Stronger Is Different.” How so? Well, I don’t know about you, but I don’t train to have fun or hang out with the guys—I train to look and feel better, and I want to get the most from my efforts. If I can get better results by working out half as long as the other guy, that’s what I want to do. If I were new to weightlifting and my options were to gain 10 pounds in a couple of months by doing the same exercises every week (done with correct form, intensity, and weight progression) or to squeeze out half of those gains by doing the latest fancy, overhyped muscle confusion routine, I’d choose the former. Bigger Leaner Stronger is all about training and getting results. It gives you a precise training and eating regimen that delivers maximum gains in the least time. The diet and training principles are nothing new or sophisticated, but you’ve probably never put them all together like how I’m going to teach you. There’s nothing cutting-edge or complicated about how to eat and train correctly, but most people have it all wrong. With Bigger Leaner Stronger, you can gain 10 to 15 pounds in your first three months of lifting weights. That’s a pretty drastic change. People are going to start asking you for workout advice. Even if you’re not new to lifting, you can gain somewhere between half a pound to a pound per week, every week, until you’re happy with your size. If your goal is to simply lose fat, I’m going to show you how to lose between 1

and 2 pounds of fat per week like clockwork…without starving yourself…without having to completely abstain from foods…and without gaining it all back after the suffering has ended. So, are you ready? Here’s the first step: Forget what you think you know about getting fit. I know, it might sound a little harsh, but trust me: it’s for your own good. Just let it all go, approaching Bigger Leaner Stronger with an open mind. Along the way, you’ll find that certain things you believed or did were right while others were wrong, and that’s okay. As I said earlier, I’ve made every mistake you can possibly make, so you’re in good company. Just follow the program exactly as I lay it out, and then let the results speak for themselves.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
