Recommended Programs

I first started blogging about fitness without any intention of making money.  I just wanted to share some tips I’ve learned from over 20 years of training and studying the iron game.

But I eventually encountered some training programs that were actually worth promoting.  I believe a diet and training program is the best investment you can make for reaching your fitness goals.  I made the mistake of spending hundreds of dollars on supplements and only a fraction of that on information.  I had it backwards, and I don’t want you to make the same mistake.

Just to be clear, I do make money when someone buys a program with the links from this blog.  And in most cases I get a complimentary copy for review. But I do sincerely believe you’ll find what I endorse to be a good investment if you choose the program that matches your specific goals and needs.

I’m about to describe some of the products I currently endorse.  But keep this in mind–there’s no such thing as one perfect diet/training approach.  The best choice for you will depend on your own goals, the time you want to put in the gym, available equipment, etc.

You click here to email me if you have a question.  I’ll try to help you find the best match for you–not necessarily the most expensive one.

Anyway, here are a few of my best sellers.

Muscle/strength building for new trainees (beginners):

Muscle Gaining Secrets (by Jason Ferruggia) is the program I usually recommend to friends who are just getting started in the gym (or just returning after a long layoff).  I like Ferruggia’s overall training style: keep things simple.

Intermediate/Advanced Muscle-Building Programs (for those who have been training for a year or more):

I’d recommend MI40X (Ben Pakulski’s program) for more intermediate to advanced trainees who want to break through plateaus in size and strength.

For Women

Flavia Del Monte’s Curvalicious Workout has been my top seller as far as women’s programs go.

Fat Loss Programs

I’d recommend the Adonis Golden Ratio program for men who want a complete guide to losing fat and building muscle (exercise, diet, etc.).  This customizable program is ideal for those who need to do a little of both in order to build a more aesthetically pleasing physique.

Turbulence Training is the program I would recommend for busy people who want to get results with minimal time in the gym.

Rusty Moore’s Visual Impact Cardio is an excellent, all-around guide for fat loss.   This manual is very well written and teaches the art and science of losing fat.
