ExcellenteEvidence based program that works.
Reviewed in the United States on December 12, 2017
I started this program 9 months ago as a 64 yo active and fit man. Goal was to see if at my age I could gain muscle mass. In conjunction with Mike's B,L,S book I have gained 1 # muscle mass per month. So being older is not a barrier.
Strengths of the book - specific detailed wek by week plan that is easy to follow. No more searching the internet for a plan. Resulkts speak for themselves. with 3,4,5 day w/o options one can tailor each week based on your available time.
Only suggestions for improvement would be to:
include the de-load week as part of the printed schedule with recommended exercises
include alternative exercises that machines could substitute for. I have limited shoulder mobility so overhead barbell presses are pretty impossible. I uses machines for these with similar range of motion but much less pain.
This book, Bigger, Leaner, Stronger and mike's web site are all excellent. Nice to find evidence based programs that are simple and effective. Can't say enough good things.
