Format: Paperback
This book worked great for me. There isn't anything in here that is revolutionary or new. It's tried and tested methods that when followed properly work well. This book probably isn't for a complete novice. You need to have a general understanding of diet and lifting weights to get the most benefit. If you follow the diet rules and do the workouts you WILL see results. They may not be as huge as Joe's results but you will see good results. I started this in Feb 2013 after finally getting the book since it was sold out everywhere. I bought all the supplements which I wouldn't do again since I only really used about four of them. But I was excited and went a bit overboard.

My starting stats in Feb were 180lbs 5'11" and 20%Body Fat. I was out of shape and my gut would hang over my belt when sitting. Yuck. I bought all the stuff for the diet and started out. After the first week or two the diet wasn't to bad. You completely cut out carbs so for the first week or two you will feel like absolute crap. But just power through it. The workouts were grueling. About 70% into my first workout I had to lay down on the gym floor. Just beat me up bad. The next 2 weeks of workouts were equally as bad. Just completely ruins you. The negative reps are a killer and the tempo is rough. I'd definitely suggest a workout partner or you will probably quit. You need someone to help you through the workouts. After the first month I was getting into really good shape and making it through my workouts. I dropped 3% bf in the first month while maintaining me weight. So I was building muscle and losing fat at the same time. I was exciting that things were working and I was seeing the fruits of my labor.

I ended in April and was down to 12% body fat at 178lbs.

I strongly recommend that everyone here goes to the Amazon UK site and looks at the numerous reviews there. YOU SHOULD PAY ESPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE ALAN GORDON REVIEW - HE HAS MORE EXPERIENCE THAN EITHER OF THE AUTHORS.

You will notice several things:

1. There are a lot of reviews
2. Where there is a negative review someone posts a comment criticisng the reviewer - sometimes within one hour
3. Where the negative review is specific in its criticisms, these are ignored by those hostile to the review.
4. Many many of the praising reviews come from people who have never ever posted a review before. What does that tell you.
5. There is a heavy emphasis in the book on buying supplements - and there are adverts for supplements in the book
6. It is suggested on the UK site that many of the reviewers and reviews are just part of a campaign to sell more supplements!

Think about this when you read the reviews.


It took a long time to actually receive this 'magbook' but it has at last arrived (why isn't it available as an ebook?). I have read large chunks of it - and these chunks cause me to doubt the accuracy and safety of the exercises/suggestions contained.

The book features Joe Warner who went from 16.5% bodyfat to 5.5% in 12 weeks following an exercise and nutrition plan carefully designed and supervised by Nick Mitchell. Joe's bodyfat level was ALREADY at 'fitness' level (Source:American Council on Exercise) and thus 'above average' therefore this magbook is not your 'average Joe' dramatically transformed. The change to 5.5% is impressive but it's not from a base that most of us are already at. Joe's fat was measured using calipers which measure subcutaneous adipose tissue.

Format: Paperback
I just completed my first month of the program and am really suprised on how well it works. This isn't a get fit quick scheme but rather a plan that with hard work and determination will get your body to where you want it. While I am not trying to be a cover model by the end of this I still would like to be close. I feel this book really applies to me as well because I am a very similiar build as Nick. I was what they call in the book skinny fat at 5'7 and 156lbs. I am sorry to say that I didn't do a body fat reading when I started but a month later I have lost 5 lbs. and am down to 13% body fat! Also, looking at my pictures from the beginning to now it is a world of difference. The workouts are clear as day and set up that if you fail at this workout it is because you didn't do the work out! Unlike most fitness crazess you will only need to work out 4 days a week for an hour a day which is nothing! The only thing I wish they would have increased on would be the diet. While they give you a sample week of Nick's meal plan I wish they would have gone into a bit more detail. Other than that it is the best money I have ever spent. O ya go to the UK amazon and get it for half the price! I will repost once I get done with the plan and hopefully find out how to attach a picture with the comparisons.

Format: Paperback
I just completed week 4 and am absolutely thrilled with the results. My wife and friends have all notice the changes. My abs are the most discernable they have been since college 15 years ago and my back, shoulder, chest, legs, and arms just keep getting bigger. I have been weight training for strength for years and have never gotten these kind of results before. Following the diet is not easy and I don't follow it exactly. I do as far as no carbs except from veggies and nuts but I'm not packing in as much protein every day because I think that it is overkill. I do take most of the core supplements mentioned besides popping as many BCAA's as Joe did. To make this work you need to be willing to push yourself to the max every time in the gym. While I don't have a bodyfat scale to quantify my results I have seen my belly fat reduce significantly all while gaining an extra 3 lbs, so I am indeed dropping fat while gaining muscle!

Update: Have completed all 12 weeks. Have my first 6 pack ever after years of trying. Best shape of my life at 39. This program has worked wonders for me. To make it work you MUST stick to the low carb diet and be willing to work hard in the gym each and every time.
