    "Fantastic."

    I now own 6 of his books over various formats (Kindle, Audible and Paperback). I own the first edition of BLS on paperback but wanted to get the updated version after seeing what he had to say on YouTube about the changes between them. I was pretty lucky because I forgot I had a few credits on here, which saved me picking it up next week. I haven't finished it yet (have about 8 hours left) but already it'll be worth picking it up on Kindle so I can read it too. I like that it emphasises psychological pitfalls and how to either overcome or avoid them entirely. I can't wait to get more into the nutrition as it was great in the 1st edition but I could always learn more 😄 I absolutely recommend Mike Matthews, his books, his YouTube podcasts, his website (muscleforlife) and his scientifically backed supplements (Legion Supplements). Check him out and you won't regret it!

    "Excellent"

    I thought I knew a lot about training for size but this book blew me away. Very detailed yet very simple to understand on both training and exercise. Excellent book for new starters through to advanced.

    "Far too cheesy"

    Listening as a British person I couldn't get on with the cheesy salesman style narration. I've already bought the book, no need to try and sell it to me for the first few chapters. More focus on the subject and less of how great the book and author are would have made it more palatable. It was at least chapter 7 before any useful information came along.

    Coming from a bodybuilding back ground,this is the same advise given to me buy natural bodybuilders.
    I’ve trained with ,what makes it awesome is the scientific prof and full support given by mike.
    If you know hard work gets things done,then this book is for you. succeed good luck !!! I know guys that charge thousands because they get these results when most trainers can’t,so to have book like this is a touch, I’ve only come across a few others like this but they’re not up to date

    "Buy it."

    This is my first review on Audible, and I'm proud to write it.

    If you want to improve your body/health drastically; buy it. Simple.

    Prepare yourself for one of the most information dense, scientifically-backed, and fun books on health, exercise, and nutrition you'll find around at the moment.

    When I have a question about training, I now go to Mike's website, or refer to this book.

    "Back to Basics: Lift Heavy, Eat Well..it will come"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I found this book when looking up how to build muscle while burning fat at the same time. Believe it or not there is very limited information let alone technique written about it as the mantra is that it is impossible to do. Mike Matthews lays it all out in laymen's terms what needs to be done by bringing it back to basics. This book, along with Arnold's "Total Recall," was the push I needed to get myself back in the weight room after almost 15 years. I'm 37 now and was tired of watching all of my peers complete marathons, Tough Mudders and the like while I slaved away at my job and atrophied to old man levels,watching my BFP rise and rise and feeling older by the day. While I've only been on the program for 3 months I've dropped 3% body fat and lost about 7 pounds, nothing drastic but a good start. I am still finding the right balance of macros (I'm hypothyroid) to see what works best for me. But my strength literally exploded almost immediately and I am now back to lifting what I was way back when, even more-so with legs. Muscle memory is REAL! One point that MM does not really go into is the sheer sense of accomplishment you feel when you are able to add on weight week after week. Granted, this will taper off but if there's anything that will keep you pumped that is it. I've been using the app Strong to track my lifts which has been a huge help and am just now getting into carb cycling to see if that may help with my carb intolerance. Great book with common sense ideas. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    "This book is a God send!"

    It was so excellent that I had to purchase a physical hard copy to take extensive notes and have ease of access with specific details. The information on food and supplements is possibly more vital than the workouts themselves. I struggle with my food cravings and tend to overeat often. After this read, it's been an excellent change!

    "Everything you need to know."

    This is an outstanding book. I'm an experienced lifter and I thought I really understood how to create the body I wanted. However, this book really taught me a lot that I didn't know. It caused me to change my entire program and I've had amazing success. I think that this book will save anyone years of fruitless struggle and help you get the body you want. This book offers all the info your ever going to need to reach your goals. This book is amazing and I think people should really pick it up and follow the program to see for yourself.

    "My Muscle Bible"

    This was my first book of Mike's that I bought, and it's truly paid for itself multiple times over and over. I'll get to that in a moment.
    If you're looking for a no-nonsense, motivating, inspiring book to help you quickly achieve your fitness goals, you've found it. I purchased the Audible version because I like to listen to books as I'm driving and/or mowing the lawn. I like to keep fit and healthy, and I'm always looking to pack on more muscle. One day before mowing the lawn, I searched for a new book to listen to while I was working outside. I'm glad I stumbled across this one.
    As far as this book actually saving me money, his chapter on supplements is worth the cover price alone. If you're like me, you fell victim to supplement scams for years. Trying every hot new product, even though most of it wasn't backed up by any true science at all. Worst, these "new" prodcuts cost a fortune. Mike cuts through all the b.s. and lays it out straight. What works, what doesn't. What you need, what to skip. So I'm done wasting money on unproven products. Thanks so much Mike. This truly is my "Muscle Bible."

    As someone who spent years studying kinesiology, I share a lot of the same view points touched on in this book by Mr. Matthews. This really is a no BS approach to exercise, supplementation, and dieting. I have been telling my friends these things for years. Great book!

    "Very practical and informative!!"

    I have been weight lifting for 6 six and done a lot of the thing Matt describes which have led to periods of stagnation. Matt's emphasis on progressive overloading best describes the way I have achieved what I have. However the whole package of knowledge with practical methods to achieve growth in strength is a great confirmation of my intuitions and knowledge that I've gained to achieve strength. I recommend this no nonsense straight talking approach to serious seekers after strength and power!!! Good on you Matt!!!!

    What did you love best about Bigger Leaner Stronger?

    I loved how Mike gets down to the nitty gritty details of each topic, He leaves no space to be confused if a question arises he automatically goes into explaining the fundamentals.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bigger Leaner Stronger?

    At the end when it came to a full workout plans for the first two months and the 1 year bonus report i jumped out of my seat. With the info he gives you on diet and training he completes it with an actual workout plan, from which workout to how many reps its fantastic.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, there's a lot of misinformation in the fitness community. This book breaks down the right approach in a scientific, yet easily readable, format. The author doesn't BS around, it's very straightforward and isn't sugar-coated...brass-tacks. Also, it's hard not to like Mike, he's charismatic and conversational.
