Happily though, they are AWESOME side effects!
I recently had the pleasure of reading through an email from a reader who experienced the following life-changing results:
- Weight from 280lbs down to 225lbs
- Cholesterol from 235 to 130
- High blood pressure down to normal levels
- More muscle
- More free time
- More productive
- An enjoyable lifestyle regarding food and training
Not bad, eh?
Josh Clymer is 36 years old from Minnesota, USA. To prove he’s a real person, this is his facebook profile.
Take a look at his pics and let’s see what he had to say…
I purchased your Total Six Pack Abs book back in Mid-December of 2010 and I read each and every article you publish on your site.
A little background: I do not have the “normal” shirtless before and after photos because I did not get serious about my health to look good on a beach or compete in bodybuilding. The before pic I did include was of when I was 280 pounds, had high blood pressure, and high cholesterol etc.
I also included a photo after I was on your program for 13 months. I weighed 225 lbs, my cholesterol dropped from 235 to 130 (my diet consists of tons of red game meat and tons of eggs) and my blood pressure had fallen back to normal levels. The pictures are not great, however if you look at my face, you will see it is about half the size it used to be.
In high school I was a state champion wrestler and All-Conference football player. I also played Division 2 football for 2 years. I lost motivation to play football in college as it took too much of my time hunting, fishing among other activities.
I finished a Masters Degree in Engineering, but was in terrible shape. From the age of 20-32, I went from being extremely healthy, to a fat 280lb guy that got winded walking up a flight of stairs and struggled to bend over and tie my own shoe laces.
My biggest hobbies still included hunting and fishing, however due to my health, I was struggling to have the endurance to be able to do these activities. I am more of an extreme outdoorsman who will load 50-60lbs of gear on a backpack and climb mountains out west, sometimes 10,000 feet, sleeping in the mountains and hunting big game for a week at a time.
I needed to get back into shape or I was not going to be able to continue with these trips (as well as slowly kill myself). I spent hour upon hour in the gym and thought I was eating healthy outside of the gym, with little results to show for it.
I found MuscleHack while trying to figure out why I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I liked your website, because I am a very data/fact driven person. You went against the grain on several theories; however you had the facts and data to back your theories up. I bought your book, and the rest was history.
I eat game steak and eggs almost every single day, bacon, cheese, etc. I spend at least an hour less in the gym and only focus on cardio 3 months before my hunting season to build my endurance for climbing mountains and experiencing less oxygen at 10k feet.
I’ve seen numerous testimonials of folks that have been extremely successful on your program, but I think several of them miss one important aspect which has benefited me more than anything: Your program has made me more productive. I estimate that since reading your book, I have spent at least 800 LESS hours in the gym while getting BETTER results, all while enjoying my diet and reducing the cost of useless supplements.
I watch people at the gym, and I almost feel sorry for them. They waste so much time, they either starve themselves or eat the wrong foods. I constantly recommend your book/website to anyone I talk to at the gym.
The simple purchase of your book made me much more productive, saved me money, and provided me with the knowledge necessary create a lifestyle I can enjoy.”
Personally I love this testimonial as it typifies a MuscleHack experience. BETTER results in LESS time.
But I don’t think the overall weight loss does it justice. Josh obviously gained muscle throughout this period – his arms are looking huge in that after pic! So the weight difference was 55lbs, but actual fat lost would have amounted to much more, while lean body mass increased.
Josh also enjoyed the diet (who doesn’t like steak, eggs, cheese) while both his body and health improved beyond all recognition. Now that’s a plan you can make a permanent liftestyle and be happy with it!
If you are wondering, yes you can have carbs on TSPA. In fact, you can have more carbs on TSPA than you can have on MANS. And there are periods of high-carbs as well. The diet is pretty easy to live with.
Not to mention TSPA includes its own modified THT workout, which will see you put in less time at the gym and get faster results. There are 3-day, 5-day, and 6-day training options – you pick which one you can do to fit your own lifestyle – everyone can make this work.
Cardio? I don’t do any. Most TSPA’ers don’t either. I do include it as an option in the plan if you are so inclined. Even with this option, the most you’ll ever do is 20 minutes a few days a week.
If you’ve any questions about the program, don’t hesitate to ask me below.
And never forget to…
