INTRODUCING MICHAEL MATTHEWS' #1 BESTSELLER WITH OVER 20,000 COPIES SOLD!

If you want to be toned, lean, and strong as quickly as possible without crash dieting, "good genetics," or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on supplements...regardless of your age... then you want to read this book.

Here's the deal: 

Getting into great shape isn't nearly as complicated as the women's fitness industry wants you to believe. 
  • You don't need to constantly change up your exercise routines to "confuse" your muscles. I'm pretty sure muscles lack cognitive abilities.
  • You don't need to starve yourself or do weird cleanses to get thin. You don't even have to limit yourself to boring, tasteless food if you know what you're doing.
  • You don't need to toil away in the gym for a couple of hours per day, doing a bazillion reps. (This is actually a great way to stunt your gains and get nowhere.)
  • You don't need to grind out hours and hours of boring cardio to shed ugly belly fat and love handles and get a lean, flat stomach.
  • You don't need to completely avoid "cheat" foods while getting lean and toned. If you plan cheat meals correctly, you can actually speed your metabolism up and accelerate fat loss.
In this book you're going to learn something most women will never know: The exact formula of exercise and eating that makes losing 10 to 15 pounds of fat and replacing it with lean, sexy muscle a breeze...and it only takes 8 - 12 weeks.

This book reveals things like... 
  • The 5 biggest fat loss myths & mistakes that keep women overweight, frustrated, and confused.
  • The real science of healthy fat loss that makes losing 1 - 2 lbs of fat per week not only easy, but guaranteed.
  • The HORRIBLE lies women are told about how to "tone" and "shape" their bodies, and what you REALLY need to do to have sexy, lean curves.
  • The carefully-selected exercises that deliver MAXIMUM results for your efforts. This is the "secret" to getting a round butt, toned legs, a flat stomach, and sculpted arms.
  • A no-BS guide to supplements that will save you hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars each year that you would've wasted on bunk science and marketing hype.
  • How to get lean while still indulging in the "cheat" foods that you love every week like pasta, pizza, and ice cream.
  • And a whole lot more!
Imagine, just 12 weeks from now, being constantly complimented on how you look and asked what the heck you're doing to make such startling progress. Imagine enjoying the added benefits of high energy levels, no aches and pains, better spirits, and knowing that you're getting healthier every day. 

The bottom line is you CAN achieve that "Hollywood babe" body without having your life revolve around it--no long hours in the gym, no starving yourself, no grueling cardio that turns your stomach. 

SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS

With this book you'll also get a free 75-page bonus report from the author called "The Year One Challenge." In this bonus report, you'll learn exactly how to exercise, eat, and supplement to make the most of your first year of training. 

Buy this book now and begin your journey to a thinner, leaner, and stronger you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners, not for experienced lifters June 16, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book after finishing Strong Curves, because I'm honing my lifting routines. I started on my own without guidance in March 2013 and have been yielding significant results, but wanted more organization and science knowledge. I consider myself at an advanced strength. This book is a good read and has lots of science involved. It's great if you are a woman who has never touched a free weight in her life, and it tells you why drawn-out cardio is not the way to a beach bod. It describes important form, although I was taught a varying form of the Romanian Deadlift, so who knows who's right on that or if it matters at all. This book is a wonderful guide to the woman who is ready to pick up that barbell and do work!

The first half of this book really goes into the nitty-gritty of diet, and it was super helpful to me. It's totally laid out what I always wondered, and it helps explain macros so that someone of any fitness or nutritional level can get a grip on it and apply it. If you are like me and you've been training/lifting for a long time with success but stopped seeing results because your diet is off, this book is a huge help for what you should be eating and when for maximum results [I never knew what casein could do before TLS!].

If you are in the same boat as me, the exercise portion isn't much help. I warm up in the book's suggested working set range, and my working sets are 4-6 reps each. Also the workouts require some machines, even though the author dismisses the need for machines in the beginning of the workout chapters. The only machine in my gym is a GHD situp machine, so I can't do a lot of these workouts.

All in all this book is alright. I prefer Strong Curves for the workout portion, but this book really nails the diet. I suggest this book to a woman with zero lifting experience, with the understanding that she will probably want more books or guidance as she progresses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this first! March 20, 2013
By Brioche
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a long distance triathlete marathoner that was sidelined due to a running injury and was looking for a good book on weight training. I did a search on Amazon and this book stood out among the rest because it was specifically written for women beginning strength training/body building and few good books exist. What surprised me the most was when I received an email from the author asking me if I had any questions about the book or training. At first I thought this can't be a real person but it was. Michael Matthews is a very generous person who really wants to help you by teaching you the most effective method to get leaner and stronger.

Mike's straight forward no-nonsense nuts and bolts approach to weight training appealed to me. Through his personal trials and errors with his own journey in body building, Mike tells you what you should do. He gives you a training menu, supplement advice and a diet guideline. 5 days of less than one hour per day of weight training and 3 hours of cardio per week is all you need. I am new to this whole world of body building and it's my first week, but the program and eating is so far easy for me to follow. Eating right and lifting heavy weights seems to be the important key to reach success.

I am enjoying the gym for the first time after I quit going years ago because I got bored and saw no results. I have a specific goal to transform my body and see the same gym members from 9 years ago doing the same routines with no visible results. My target is to build upper body strength and muscle, make my legs stronger, get rid of my mini muffin top on my backside and have a power butt.

I have ALWAYS struggled with my weight; I don't even know what it's like to be in shape. I workout but tend to hover around the same weight and body shape. The more I have read into what people do to get in better shape, the more I began to see how important it is to control what/how you eat. I researched books on fitness and came across this. I read it within 2 days and immediately started doing what the book advised. I lost 3 lbs my first week and the weight continues to come off. I have always worked out but for once it's actually paying off and I am seeing the weight melt while my muscles get stronger.

This is a very inexpensive book and it's worth reading it and trying out the program. Michael gets right to the point and breaks down how everything works. I refuse to do anything until I understand the science behind it. He explained it very simply and I am happy with the results I've seen.

I'd recommend this book for every woman, especially those like me that have always struggled with their weight and knowing what to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's amazing July 12, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm amazed with the results I'm having. My height is 1,70 m (5,58 ft) and before starting (two months ago), my weight was 60 kg (161 pound). Up to now, I've lost 5 kg (13,4 pounds). My arms are already starting to be toned, I'm losing fat, specially in the abs and hips, I feel more energetic, my hair, skin and nails are healthier and more beautiful. I reccomend this book to every woman who wants to have a beautiful and nice body, without doubtful, crazy procedures and diets.
