GAINS 25 LBS WITH NO WAIST SIZE INCREASE!
I am on the muscle building phase and I have had great results. I have gained 25 pounds and not an inch on my waist. Your program is great - and you always get back with me in a very timely manner on my questions. That is very much appreciated.
Just thought I would let you know that the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program is fantastic.
At 32 years old, I have been training quite seriously for over ten years and thought I had pretty much reached the end of my development at 94 kgs and quite lean. After two months on your program I have cracked the magic 100kg mark, which was a goal of mine, and still quite lean.
I felt like I have wasted many years training by not having this program. I have never been stronger or so enthusiastic about my workouts (the week 5 sessions are bloody tough though!)
This is the only way to train. All other methods just don’t make sense to me anymore.
Well done and best wishes.
GAINS 1.5” ON HIS ARMS & 3” ON HIS CHEST
Hi, hope life is treating you well. A short summary of my progress since starting the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program in January was that I gained about 1.5 inches on my arms and 2-3 inches on my chest in about 3 months. For me this was a massive achievement because, like so many lifters I don't gain muscle easily. I put the changes down to three basic factors:
1. Your MuscleNOW program explained exactly how to train to consistently 'over-stretch' my body/muscle capacity.
2. MuscleNOW explained EXACTLY how and what to eat to produce growth without excessive fat gains.
3. Prior to using MuscleNOW I had trained for 3-4 years and had EITHER under-trained to produce significant mass gains OR under-eaten.
I am so grateful. Since May I've been cutting because when I started your program I already had a fair amount of body fat around the waist. Your fat loss dieting technique has enabled me to lose over 3 inches on the waist in just over three months without significant loss of muscle. Whenever I cut back in the past I used to lose everything all at once and, annoyingly, keep the stubborn fat stores.
It's not easy; it takes time and dedication to produce results, but your MuscleNOW techniques are far and away the most effective I've come across and I've searched the internet over the years and read mountains of magazines/scientific advice on the subject.
I really am grateful for the invaluable knowledge. I'm really satisfied with the steady progress so thank you loads.
I have been working out with MuscleNOW now for about 40 days and have gained about 17-18 pounds since. And the best part is that I did not gain any substantial amount of fat in the areas that I was afraid I would gain (legs, butt)!
Thank you very much for all your help and again, this program has already brought me extraordinary results! Just by observing how many girls notice me is astounding proof to the effectiveness of the MuscleNOW program!
My wife is very impressed with my results. I am so happy with your MuscleNOW program.
Hi Francesco. I want to update you on my progress so far. I have completed 3 weeks of my first 6 week cycle. My weight has increased 7 lbs. (184-191). My biceps have each increased by 1/2 inch. My chest has increased by 1 1/4 inch. And my waist has stayed the same. My wife is very impressed with my results. I am so happy with your program. I look forward to every workout and every meal because I have never been able to get results like this so quickly.
Thanks for all your guidance.
Thank you again for everything you done for us natural lifters. I used to read all the bodybuilding magazine back in the 90s and I did a Google search the other day for all the bodybuilders that used to be in all the pictures and have read that some have died and a lot have kidney problems and wont live past their 60s and THEY ALL ARE SKINNY NOW. Thank you for showing us the natural way!!!
When I sent in my payment for your system I also sent a letter saying this was my last hope before I was going to try steroids. Needless to say I loved the program even though I never implemented any of what you told me except the diet. I would calculate all the food out in bags but I never would eat it. Well time went on and I put the MuscleNOW program in the top shelf of my closet and continued to use supplements. I went through a lot in my life drinking heavily on weekends with my so called friends, and my workouts were really bad due to my body recovering from the drinking all week long. Then 4 years ago I met a lady who changed my life around, and we had a daughter. I was still working out off and on, weighing in at 135 at age 24, pretty bad, still choking down weight gainers and not gaining a pound.
Having kids, I could no longer afford supplements and I hated choking down pills and powders. I promised I was no longer going to take them any more and that's when I found your MuscleNOW program in my mom's house right were I left it. I read it over again and promised I would follow it no matter what. Well I did except for the diet, as I kind of eat all the time but made sure I had a lot of protein and carbs and eat a lot of fruit before and after my work outs. But I stuck to the work out routines and cycle and O MY GOSH!! I loved it I was working out with less intensity and my body blew up!! Week after week I was getting bigger my strength was going though the roof and my shirts were getting tight around my arms, chest and back. I gained 15 solid pounds in one six week cycle!!!
I'm now going on my next cycle but I'm going to follow the system to a "T" diet and everything. Francesco, I thank you very much. You have saved my life from using dangerous drugs or giving up on a nice body. I went from 135 to today 155 but every one can't believe I only weigh 155 with all the muscle I have. I'll use your system for the rest of my life and I read it just for motivation some times. Like I said, I will be starting my second cycle and expect huge gains since I will be using the diet as well as the routines.
IN 3 WEEKS GAINS NEARLY 1.5" ON HIS CHEST
How are you Francesco? I hope you are doing OK. I have gained nearly 1.5” on my chest, half inch on my biceps, 2.5 lbs in body weight and nothing on my waist (no fat gains), in only 3 weeks. I hope you post this testimonial on your website. It will serve as evidence that your program truly works. Thank you Francesco. I will keep you updated.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how I'm doing. I started your system two weeks ago and I can't believe what is happening. My strength gains are incredible. I've gained a half inch on my biceps, an inch and a half on my chest and lost an inch on my waist!
As you know I'm a police officer. Just after Christmas, I was attacked by two people when I responded to a bar to take an assault report. The "victim" and his brother took their frustration out on me and after being punched and kicked by them, they tried to take away my gun. Due to my training (and my partner's good timing) I didn't get hurt and the bad guys went to jail. I got lucky.
After that, I couldn't help thinking how different it could have been. Increased strength has been a futile goal of mine for ten years, but after the bar incident it became my mission. Granted, there is always someone out there who is bigger, stronger, etc.. but I want every advantage I can get. You have made that goal possible.
As a department Defensive Tactics trainer I will recommend your program to all of my trainees. After all, officer survival isn't just about winning the fight, it's about staying alive, going home to your family every day and living longer, healthier.
I am getting bigger without using any supplements.
A few months ago I wanted to gain 15 lbs and it was not until I started your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program that I started to pack on the muscle. Everyone notices that I am getting bigger no matter where I go whether if it is at school, the gym, or work. I feel good and I feel even better that I am getting bigger without using any supplements. Right now, I do feel as if my muscle growth is limitless!
Hey! I haven't sent you an e-mail in years! Yet, I have stayed on the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program since I started. To sum everything up, I have seen that it definitely works extremely well. I have received many compliments, and people think I work out a lot!
There is no doubt that I could accomplish any type of body I want with your MuscleNOW program, as it has allowed me to have very good muscle development, and I am proud of my body. All in all I am truly satisfied, and plan to continue the program for a long, long time.
I was never really skeptical of your program, but it seemed like most people I knew were. They keep quiet now, because they can see that MuscleNOW works.
My body added new muscle mass at a incredible rate.
I would like to thank you for a totally awesome bodybuilding program. I've completed the first six week cycle and the results are tremendous. I have been working out for about 3 years, as you said I hit a brick wall because I did the same number of sets/reps for every workout. I also never ate correctly. When I started your MuscleNOW program my body automatically responded by adding new muscle mass at a incredible rate. My chest went from 44".5 to 46", biceps 16" to 16.75", forearm 13.25" to 14.75". My body fat is so low I can see the muscle fibers. For months I was stuck on the same weight but since starting I've increased between 10 to 40 lbs, the most being in the bench and squat. So your MuscleNOW program definitely works.
First, let me give you many thanks and props for your assistance through the program and email mediums. I've had great results, most, if not all, of which is due to your expertise. I used the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for about six weeks last year before I went through a move and lost steam. In that short time, I got the nickname ‘steroid boy' due to the speed of growth. That was reward enough in itself! Thank you very much.
I'm starting to see growth in my measurements after only 1 month!
I just wanted to drop a quick note saying thank you very much for all the help you've been. I think I lost count of the number of questions I fired at you after buying your MuscleNOW program, yet you always sent back a polite, helpful, and prompt response to all my questions. I purchased MuscleNOW a while back and due to my own busy schedule and lack of initiative I only made a half-hearted effort, not getting all the results I had hoped for. Now I’ve re-started your program with a renewed intensity and a firm commitment to fitness and lo and behold, I’m starting to see results and growth in my measurements after only 1 month! I’m excited and encouraged and just wanted to say great job, keep up the good work; I wish you the best of luck and success in getting your MuscleNOW program and support out there to more people who would like to get fit, healthy, and gain muscle mass!
MuscleNOW is the fastest muscle producing system that I have ever seen, and believe me I have seen a lot. Based on pure logic, this system managed to get me on the road that I’ve been trying to get on for the past two years. It stresses the critical factor in eating right. Most people underestimate this factor but then again most people don’t make consecutive gains in muscle mass, do they? Also, cycling is the most important principle in bodybuilding yet most people seem to ignore it, again this is what Francesco Castano, writer of this amazing program generously offers you. Whether you want to be a beach boy or a champion bodybuilder, this is the system for you. You can also ask Francesco questions through E-Mail and this totally personalizes this amazing system. It’s liking having your own professional coach!!! My life changed 180 degrees in less than 6 weeks why shouldn't it do the same for you?
I'd like to tell you, Francesco, that your system is definitely the best around.
I never imagined that I had packed that much muscle on.
Just want to drop a short email and update you. I have followed your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program closely since I last contacted you (about 2 months ago). I have been pretty strict on my diet, except for a couple of times. I wrote out the exercise program and started carrying a notepad with me to the gym, documenting everything. I am on my first 5 week cycle through the plan. I started with the higher reps, lower weight, now I'm on the last (week 5) of the heavy stuff.
It has really made a difference!!! I measured 39" on my chest before I started getting serious about your program, and I had been at that for months, with absolutely no increase. I measured my chest yesterday morning and was surprised that my chest was almost 40.25"!!! I had noticed a difference in the way my chest looked, but I never imagined that I had packed that much muscle on. I even measured again this morning just to be sure, and it was just under 40.25". WOW!
Thanks again for all your help. I am really enthusiastic about all this again. Your MuscleNOW program really works!
I am in my 5th week of my first 6 week cycle. I am totally blown away by the gains your MuscleNOW program has given me. TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY!!!!!!! I have been working out off and on, sometimes serious sometimes not, for over 3 years. I have accomplished more in 5 weeks with MuscleNOW than in those 3 years combined. Those 3 years don't even come close to what MuscleNOW has done for me over the past 5 weeks.
I found your website while searching the net for cures to hardgainers. I found two sites that were of interest to me, yours and one other. What sold me was that you downplayed the use of those bogus supplements, all those good for nothing products that just waste your money. So I decided to give MuscleNOW a try. The problem with my training in the past was that I didn't eat enough. I thought the only thing that I needed was protein with little carbs. Boy was I wrong. My arms are no longer like toothpicks, I am getting some guns. I am starting to get that V-shape torso. It is unbelievable. I have a curved spine that has caused me great back pain in the past, but no longer. My back in solid and strong and I have not had ONE episode of pain since starting your program. Everybody keeps asking me questions and wanting to know what supplements I am taking. I just laugh. It is also funny when they see me eating and can't believe how I eat so much and look the way I do. Even my wife is amazed, now she is a believer.
I plan on recommending you to everybody I can. All I can say is I hope that everybody would give this MuscleNOW program a try. I was a huge skeptic, even after the first week, but after that once I saw the results I knew you and your program was no joke or hoax.
Thank you so much and God Bless.
Every muscle building goal will turn into reality with MuscleNOW.
One year and six months ago I purchased the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program, but unfortunately I've not been able to consistently follow this great program for that period of time. I've been on and off, but on long enough to realize that every muscle building goal will turn into reality with MuscleNOW. IT WORKS!!! But I guess you already knew that.
Wow, what a program. For close to 10 years, have been trying to "bulk up." Like you, I have tried everything from weight gain powders to extreme diets only to be left with thin arms and a thick belly. With the help of your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program, that has all changed. This year brings with it my 40th birthday gladly celebrated because I am in the best shape of my life. I catch myself being startled when reaching for something and my bicep brushes against my chest, very cool. Or, when the local "muscle head" ask if I'm on steroids.
Thanks for those moments.
Now that I've seen the muscle gains it's easy to tell people about your web site.
THANKS!!!! This is awesome, I love it! Within 4 weeks I put an inch on my arms! This program has worked wonders for my mind as well as my body! I'm very thankful I ran across your MuscleNOW web site. I wish I would have had this info three years ago. I don't think I've ever been so excited! Now that I've seen the muscle gains it's easy to tell people about your web site, and I think a few have checked it out. Well I do wish you the very best!
Here is a little update on my progress. After two weeks, I gained 15 lbs, 2” on my chest, 1” on my arms, 1” on my quads, and 1/2” on my calves. I am totally amazed with my results thus far. I only wish I had started 3 years ago after purchasing the program.
These gains are almost unreal to me for 6 weeks.
Today 3 days away from the end of this first cycle I am at my heaviest I have ever been. I hit 147 lbs this morning. My arms are up a good 1/2”, my chest is up too. Legs are a full inch bigger at least, and I can't say enough about my back and traps. This is just a brief thing I wanted to let you know, as I really plan on sending you a technical update including actual before and after measurements and maybe some pics in the future because I really want 4 or 5 cycles, six months or so to pass so I can really brag about my gains. I'm really, really excited as each week passes because I can't wait till I hit a year or so following your course. I'm glad you provided me a solid foundation to build on, as I was just tired of hitting the gym not knowing what I was doing and actually wasting my time for the minimal gains. Now I go and I know I'm not wasting any time. I know I'm growing as fast as humanly possible versus the average person in a gym getting minimal gains every six months or so. I know you've heard this a thousand times but thank you very much Francesco for the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program and laying out the foundation I needed. I found it very simple to read and understand, by the way. All of this has me more motivated than ever as these gains are almost unreal to me for 6 weeks.
Once again thank you Francesco.
Amazing improvements with almost 3 full months of going 2 to 3 times a week to the gym. A few people have accused me of juicing up! They comment that it’s impossible to grow that huge with so little training and in such a minuscule period of time. Also, the fact that every single week my strength increases! Just amazing! I seriously feel like I'm on steroids. I mean, the strength is unimaginable. Your program truly is the NATURAL steroid! It's quite frightening how big I am getting! The chest is ripped and very large + the traps and back muscles are huge because of those shrugs. I still don’t understand how everyday I am getting more muscular and heavier, every day! I mean the arms & the chest, shoulders, traps and so forth are all so large. Quite incredible.
I'm squatting usually between 425 and 510 pounds. The numbers are way up there now and my legs are getting huge. Also I have been doing heavy shrugs of between 350 and 450 pounds. People are already telling me that it's AMAZING that an 18 yr old is squatting 500 pounds.
GAINS 8 LBS & 2.5” ON HIS CHEST IN 1 MONTH!
I like the enhancements in my chest the most! I am really happy with my results, as I have gained 8 lbs in body weight, 1.2” in my left bicep, 1.75” on my right bicep, 2.5” on my chest and nothing on my stomach, so no fat increase.
Just had to tell you that when I started the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program 7 weeks ago I could bench 75 kilos, but this morning I cranked out 3 sets of 4 at 110 kg!!! I am also proud to say that I have put ANOTHER quarter inch on each bicep and over 1 inch on my chest. I have had a half inch increase in waist size put this is minor compared to my arm growth. I have noticed a nice big vein running up my bicep and hope to see more of it in the future.
Other people have told me that size gain I achieved in the first two weeks is only possible over a series of months while I have achieved it (thanks to your program) in a fraction of the time. Also my wife thanks you for your suggestions on weight loss and is currently putting them to use.
I think more people need to be educated in this very confusing area. I see so many people, even experienced lifters, who have terrible form, don't know what to eat and worst of all buy crappy supplements (by the bucket load). I only have one worry -- someone from my gym may buy your great program and end up getting as big as fast as me!
Thanks mate, your MuscleNOW program works.
IN 2 WEEKS, GAINS 1" ON HIS CHEST WHILE BURNING FAT
Good news!!!! This is the first time I got to take measurements since I started the program 2 weeks ago, and I have gained an inch on my chest, quarter inch on my arms, and my waist declined by 3/4 of an inch.
I stumbled across the MuscleNOW website while searching the internet for advice on how to gain weight. Adding muscles to my skinny body has been a lifelong struggle, so the MuscleNOW website really spoke to me. I decided to give it a try. I began MuscleNOW and immediately noticed a change in my body. It is hard work, but well worth it, as I am finally gaining substantial muscle. I look forward to working out and I feel and look better than I ever have! I can't thank you enough for making this information available!
I'm so happy with my muscle size gains, and want to continue!
Just wanted to give you an update with my progress on your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program. I began almost four months to the day. Anyway, I'm 6'1", and 41 yrs. old, and my results are chest increased by 3.5”, right biceps up 1.25”, left biceps are 1” bigger, thighs increased by 2” and I gained 10 lbs in body weight.
Francesco, I'm so happy with my size gains, and want to continue!
I just wanted to tell you of the improvements I have gotten over the past 5 weeks. I am now on week 6 of your MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding program. Starting the program I measured 15 inch arms, and in week three I gained 1/2 inch! I can't wait to see the measurements at the end of this week. I have veins that I have never had before; very much detail now in my muscles. The diet is very easy to follow. I have had so many compliments on my body since I have started your program. This is the most legitimate workout program I have seen yet! I get a kick out of watching people workout now. I have even caught up with a few of the older guys in the gym who were way past me in strength, but strength isn't even what I was aiming for, it was just a well developed body, and you have made it happen! I recommend your program to anyone who is looking for the most effective way to gain muscle mass FAST. Your MuscleNOW program is real and I thank you for your knowledge.
I highly recommend MuscleNOW for everybody who is interested in looking great.
I would like to thank you for the many different things you have done for me. Your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program is very helpful and very cheap considering paying for a personal trainer or some other form of training aide. The program has taught me many things about muscle building that I was unaware of before. My chest, biceps, and forearms have all increased by at least 3 inches while my strength increases have been over 50%, and I have only been on this program for a month! I have seen dramatic changes in my physique while receiving comments from my friends. I would also like to note that I appreciate the personal help you provide for specific questions that come about through your email. It has helped my motivation instead of staying confused and quitting. I would highly recommend the MuscleNOW program for everybody who is interested in being at their top physical shape and looking great. Thanks again.
Thank you so much for not only making me feel better physically about myself, but also for making me feel better mentally. I am confident in everything I do now. This has allowed me to perform better in college and at my job. In 16 weeks, using the MuscleNOW program, I gained 10 lbs of muscle and lost 1 lb of fat! I have been using the program now for 6 months. I weighed 120 lbs when I started, and now I weigh 136 lbs (and have an even lower body fat level than when I began the program)! My arms were 11.75 inches flexed and now are 13.3 inches! My chest has gone from 35 inches to just under 37 inches! Even my family can't believe that such a "stick" boy could produce such good muscle gains. This program has provided me such great results that I have not experienced a workout day that wasn't filled with motivational thoughts. Thank you for being so supportive and answering ALL of my questions. You have helped me realize true happiness in my life!
After 1 week, I can feel my lats constantly pushing against my inner arms.
I've only been on your course for one week, but believe it or not my whole body has become firm and I can feel my lats constantly pushing against my inner arms. I can't understand why you aren't getting more exposure. With so many fake courses and useless gimmicks on the market why aren't you on TV?
Do you want to be entertained by an audio and videotape or do you want to workout and get big fast?
Anyway, the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program has worked for me. I bought it almost two years ago, tried it briefly then, but had to stop because my wife and I had a child and we both had to rearrange our schedules.
Now, 18 months later I've started the MuscleNOW program again. The results have been eye popping. Friends and family are shocked at the difference 2 months have made on my body. I went from 163 lbs to 175 in 2 months (6 pounds the first month and 6 the second). My physique has changed dramatically. I don't have to flex for anyone to see how ripped my chest, back and arms have become. I feel great about myself.
And the lifetime personal training has helped me in ways I couldn't begin to explain. Francesco has helped with my diet, and recommended different exercises. No question I asked was too difficult or too dumb. I usually had an answer from him within 48 hours (most times 24).
Nothing beats being able to go to the author for diet and training answers.
The course is well worth what Francesco is charging for it. Actually, it's worth more. My advice? Go with MuscleNOW.
The MuscleNOW workouts have really worked like magic.
After 4 weeks, I recently weighed myself and retook my measurements. I gained 10 pounds, with only a half inch increase in my waist, while gaining 3 quarters of an inch on my biceps and a full two inches on my chest! Needless to say I am very impressed. The program does take some hard work and dedication, but I found once I had gotten through the first week the meals were much easier to eat and my body adjusted. The MuscleNOW workouts have really worked like magic also. In my past workouts I would feel sore or like I had really stimulated my muscles only for the first few days after a layoff, but under your MuscleNOW program my muscles have felt constantly stimulated throughout the whole 4 weeks. I could really tell that something was going on there, even before I checked my progress. As an added benefit to physical appearance, your course has taught me much about the proper foods to eat and the proper ratios to each other, and believe me, this is a vast improvement over my previous diet! Even if I would stop exercising altogether, I would be better off than I was because I am now eating healthier.
Your MuscleNOW program really works! Thank you very much.
I am a 16 yr old male, and have picked up 19 lbs, added over an inch on both biceps and my chest. Thanks for the great program and most importantly for one that works.
GAINS 31 LBS OF MUSCLE & 2” ON HIS ARMS WHILE BURNING FAT!
My weight has increased 31 pounds (hard gainer no more) and my bench went from 90 to 200 in 12 weeks. I've gained two inches on my upper arms, my chest measure 4 inches from what it was and my waist has dropped almost an inch. I'm 6'0" and I was 150 lbs I'm now at 181 lbs. You can post my improvement as a testimonial if you like.
I am in Iraq. I have used your system to bulk up when I first got here from 170 pounds to 186 pounds. Truly amazing! I am now focusing on the fat loss phase because I want to tighten up before I am reunited with my family. This program takes the guess work out of it. I have been working out and "playing with fitness" for years. Your MuscleNOW program more than lived up to my expectations. I have introduced your system to many of my friends and all have had the same successes. My very best for you and your family.
GAINS 25 LBS OF MUSCLE MASS
I don’t know if you recall but I had purchased your program about 2.5 years ago. I still remember the day I got it and read it cover to cover about 4 times within the first week! I wanted to make sure I could keep every detail in mind. Of course I still have the program and I have to say, from myself a student of exercise physiology, this program is outright outstanding.
When i started the program I was at 180 lbs and within approximately 2 months I was up to 205 lbs, mostly muscle gain and the approximately 2 inches on the waist disappeared pretty fast. I had a friend who I saw once a week at work and I vividly remember every week he would mention how I have gotten bigger since the last time I worked with him (weekly).
My one major regret from being on the MuscleNOW program was that I didn't take any before/ after photographs. I did however keep measurements and training logs with the poundages I lifted each day and those were and still are a constant inspiration.
I think it’s absolutely fantastic to seen the MuscleNOW program constantly evolving to greater heights of knowledge. I am really impressed from the additions you have recently made in terms of exercise and diet (remember I'm an exercise physiology major :-)
Thank you for your knowledge and only the best to you!
Hey Francesco, this is Josh Ghavidel. I just wanted to thank you for putting together such a wonderful plan. I have not missed a workout and I have stuck to the diet consistently. What do I have to show for it? Well, a six pack, many compliments, and 10 more pounds of solid muscle!! I feel and look much better than I ever have.
I do not mind at all if you use this message as a testimonial. I mean, if someone reads mine, and that reading convinces him or her to buy your plan, I would help out a person to reach their physical goals, and that is great. So go ahead and use it.
Thank you so much.
VEGAN GAINS 8 LBS IN 2 WEEKS!
Believe it or not I put on 4 kilos (8.8 lbs) in just two weeks!!! No drugs, no supplements, and I don't even eat animal products because I am a vegan. Just a lot of hard work!!! Congrats on your MuscleNOW program!
I have been following your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for the past three months, and I now look far better. Just before I began, I weighed 125 lbs with my chest measuring 35", biceps at 11.5". In about three months, I weighed 144 lbs with my chest size at 38", and biceps at 13.25". I don't hear the word "skinny" or "too thin" anymore. In fact, I've been hearing lots of compliments recently. My co-workers are surprised at how my dress shirts that once fit sluggishly now actually look small on me. My housemate's friend thought that I was a different person. He asked my housemate, "Did you get a new housemate?" I THANK YOU so much for your support and advice throughout my training.
From comments I've received from my wife and friends, I've come a long way in a short time.
I just completed my first 6 week cycle and I have to admit, I’m pleased with the results. My goals when I bought the MuscleNOW program was mainly to add about 15 quality pounds and to look pretty good for a over forty year old man. From comments I’ve received from my wife and friends, I know I’ve come a long way in a short time. Most size gains were in the 1/4" to up to 1/2" range with about 4 lbs of weight added. For me, true intensity didn't really occur till about the 3rd or 4th week when I could go in and bang it out without thinking too much. I wonder if the people who do this understand that the measurements are only one and not necessarily in my opinion, the most important indication of success. Getting bigger is not the goal, getting better is. Better covers all the angles. The most surprising improvements to me were muscle hardness, increased vascularity, definition, and strength increases. You can't build a house without first building a strong foundation. All I can say is thanks for the knowledge.
I recommended you and your MuscleNOW program to a natural bodybuilding site where the author "claims" that you can only put on 1 - 1.5 inches in a year, and I told him proudly that with your program I've put on just over 1 inch in 5 and a half weeks with no steroids or supplements!!!!
It's hilarious really - so many preach the wrong info. One site I came across said 20g was enough protein for each meal with 6 meals per day - and then the author claimed that only 10 pounds of lean mass could be gained in one year! Most bodybuilding programs seem to limit themselves; by making it easier, they make it harder in the long run.
Thanks for all the advice and the great program. I look forward to even more gains.
GAINS 2” ON HIS CHEST
I thought I'd e-mail you my 1st cycle results to let you know that the workouts are going well. I've gained 2 inches on my chest, an inch on my arm, 2 inches on my thighs and an inch on my calves. Take care of yourself and THANK YOU!
It's been sometime since I've emailed you with my progress using your extraordinary MuscleNOW bodybuilding program. I hope all is well with you. I began MuscleNOW 7 years ago and was astonished with the results it gave me. I am a "hardgainer" and for years I struggled to gain any size. I tried all the latest supplement that came out, and nothing worked as it claimed to add size. When I stumbled onto your website by chance, I read the promises and figured I've got nothing to lose, as I was spending the same amount of money on supplements anyway. After following the diet and workout plan pretty much to the letter, I gained the strength and size I was so desperately seeking. While following MuscleNOW, people were asking me “what are you taking?" And it felt great to say, "nothing!"
The increased strength unfortunately made me greedy. One day while working back and triceps, without my usual workout partner and spotter, I injured my shoulder. And like most devoted lifters, I tried to continue lifting with my injury. This lead to some bad tendonitis in my shoulder/upper bicep area that totally crushed me. I lost all the confidence I had gained. This on top of other issues in my life, forced training to the back burner where it stayed for two years. But I'm happy to say, that I gained a new drive to return to the gym, and get back the almost 30 pounds I gained using MuscleNOW the first time. Yea, almost 30 pounds! I started your system at roughly 163 and was 190 when I was injured. I lost 20 pounds of that during my off time, and am determined to get every pound back harder and trimmer then before! That's why I have decided to return to the MuscleNOW system. I'll keep you posted on my progress, and thanks again for all the support you have provided through you emails, it's always good to know you are there!
Thanks again and keep up the good work!
GAINS 7 LBS IN ONLY 2 WEEKS
I wanted to thank you for the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program, as it has proved incredibly valuable. I actually bought your program about 4 years ago but had not gotten serious about it until this year. It's been 2 weeks since I started and I've gained 7 pounds. I was at 157 lbs and now 164 lbs. I've gone from 11.5 inches on my arms to 12. Although my goal is not to get big, I have even more confidence that your program will get me there in an incredibly short time. Everyone around me is already noticing the change, just imagine 5 or 6 weeks from now!!!
Once again thanks for this great program.
First off, let me just tell you how impressed I am with your MuscleNOW program. In a little more than a month, I have noticed more improvement in my muscles than I have ever before, even when I worked with a so called 'personal trainer'. I have noticed at least 5-10 lbs of muscle growth. Thank you for sharing your techniques.
GAINS NEARLY 20 LBS
I have gained close to 20 lbs since ordering your MuscleNOW program. Awesome results.
First I would like to congratulate you on a very well written program. There is a lot of valuable info and you have laid it out in a format that is very easy and enjoyable to read.
It has been a lot of hard work for me but you also should be congratulated. I have always considered myself a hardgainer. I naturally have a lean body style low body fat, fast metabolism. Growing up I despised being called skinny. I never thought I could put on real muscle weight. With your program I have gone from 161 pounds to 180 pounds in two full cycles (12 weeks). I have gained 1.5” on each arm and 3" on my chest. All of my strength has gone up in every single exercise.
I'm now the strongest and the biggest that I’ve ever been. Many relatives have been complimenting me and embarrassing me by calling me Schwarzenegger and saying I look like a Chippendale. But thanks to MuscleNOW my efforts have been working.
Thanks for a great program.
You said it like it is and you lived up to your promises.
Well I just finished my first cycle, and for somebody who had no idea about working out, plus not following the program properly for the first three weeks, I have experienced gains. I have written to you in the past couple of weeks because I wasn't experiencing any major gains, but I realized that I wasn't using the program correctly and I would like to thank you for your patience in clearing some points out for me. My biceps have increased 7/8 inch and my chest has also. You said it like it is and you lived up to your promises. I can't thank you enough.
I have a 3 month update. First of all, I think that i have got my money’s worth. I have gained approx. 16 pounds, and gained almost 2 inches on my biceps and 3 inches on my chest.
Im glad to know that I finally found a routine that’s not too difficult, and shows results. Your MuscleNOW program would be great for high school sport teams. Parents wouldn’t have to worry because their kids aren’t taking any supplements that could harm them, and they would be eating healthier. Parents are always trying to push their kids to eat better these days, especially mine. Thanks for everything.
GAINS 12 LBS IN 3 WEEKS
Today marks the third week I have been on your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program and I achieved very good success. So far I have gained a little over 1/2 inch on my biceps, have gained about 12 pounds without any appreciable body fat gains. Thank you for all the excellent information!
I've been using the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program now for 2 months. My job (active duty U.S. Army) prevents me from being able to follow the dietary requirements to the letter, but the results have still been awesome.
My arms were stuck at 17 3/4" for 6 YEARS (no kidding), and after 2 months on your program, they are just over 18 1/2" now, plus 10 lbs of lean mass. I'm lucky if I can eat every 4 hours, let alone every 3 hours. I usually get 5 hours of sleep at night, 6 or 6 1/2 on a good night.
MuscleNOW is a great program - in fact, it's unequaled.
IN 5 WEEKS, GAINS 1.5” ON HIS CHEST WHILE BURNING FAT
The MuscleNOW program going good so far. I have gained 1.5 inches on chest, .75 inches on arms, .25 inches on legs, and I have lost 1 inch on waist now 34 inches. Its been 5 weeks so far.
I have been working out for easily 15 years and have never seen results. I am now midway through my second cycle on your MuscleNOW program, I've gained 10 pounds and am seeing serious changes. And so is everyone else. And get this. I'm 48 years old and a classic ectomorph (skinny). There is an enormous amount of information in your MuscleNOW program and it all makes sense. You start to realize that it's not a mystery. And somehow, I don't know how, you have a way of actually getting through to people. There are a trillion plans on the market and I've never stuck with any of them longer than a month before I get bored or started to adapt and then the whole thing falls apart before I know it. I am coming up to 12 weeks on your program and I've never missed a workout or thought to alter your recommendations in any way. THAT'S an accomplishment!
Thanks for your help. Your MuscleNOW program has been truly amazing.
I disdain the steroid and supplement culture because it's unnatural.
I cannot tell you how many times in the past 10 weeks I have said to myself, “this is working."
I was once a trainer and Nautilus facility manager which was a great education on form and discipline. My education ended there and it stood me in good stead for all these years. But I am now 45 years old. Metabolism has slowed and I am facing the years when muscle mass declines with testosterone levels. At the same time I disdain the steroid and supplement culture because it's unnatural. And I am frustrated with the workout-of-the-month mentality of the current men's magazines -- too many contortions and not enough results.
So I went looking for a non-steroid program with a rational basis and found yours. In fact it was my birthday present to myself last November.
I am in week 5 of my second series of six week progressions of your program. I have missed just a handful of workouts. I have not been strict about diet except to improve balance of protein and carbs and to make sure not to miss any meals. My post workout meal is nothing more than a Carnation Instant Breakfast (an improvement over my favorite breakfast -- peanut butter crackers and a Coke!).
I weigh in every Sunday morning and find that a pattern has developed. Fat gain has stopped cold -- in fact, I've lost a pound and a half of fat. More important, I've gained a half pound of lean mass EVERY WEEK since we began. That's five and a half pounds of lean mass, so far. I am proud of this steady and noticeable improvement. My shirts feel a little tighter around the sleeves, my torso muscles cast shadows that I've never seen and my leg muscles begin to show "bellies" not seen for years. I'm not massive nor headed for competition. But I notice the difference and like it. And at an age when most of my counterparts expand around the middle, get shorter of breath and lose lean mass, I can finally bench my weight, I'm confident of my fitness and I'm growing bigger where I want to.
All of that to say, thanks.
First I'd like to express my happiness with your method of diet and training. I ordered your MuscleNOW program and started training/dieting according to your instructions beginning five weeks ago. I've in total trained for about 16 years, and never experienced a training program which stays interesting and motivating through the constant variation which it incorporates.
Since now MuscleNOW has brought me about 4 kilos extra weight without adding waist size or fat, as far as I can judge, while muscle has increased.
My wife took some pictures and I said WOW!!
I've only just finished my first cycle and I flexed my back to ask my wife how it's looking. She sounded totally shocked and almost laughing saying, "WOW you should see your back Brett!! It almost looks freaky!!" She was referring to the muscle size of course. She took some pictures and I also said WOW!! That's awesome to see the results - I just don't see my back too much and want to improve the gains in the muscles I do see in the mirror.
Your MuscleNOW program is awesome and I look forward to working it more. Your system definitely works.
I have been using your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for a few months and I wanted to let you know that I am still getting results. I saw one of my cousins and he made a funny comment to me. It was something like this, "How are the steroids doing? Looks like they are working." I just laughed to myself. This made me feel good. People are noticing a difference. After Jui Jitsu training I took my shirt off and one of my buddies asked if I have been hitting the weights hard. That was pretty cool!
The best complement I have received is from my wife, I told her that I have gained about 4 pounds and she said that my body fat still looks low. That was great coming from her because she sees me ever day. The MuscleNOW program definitely works!
I am going after an AAU bench record.
I haven't emailed before because you did a good job explaining everything in the MuscleNOW program. I finally decided to eat exactly like I should this past fall and I’ve seen phenomenal results. I have a high metabolism and graduated high school weighing around 160. Thanks to you and MuscleNOW I am now at a solid 190-195 and am going after an AAU bench record. Who would have thought? Thanks for developing this program and letting people know supplements aren't needed.
It’s been forever since I've written! I've been insanely busy with school, and of course, working out! I thought I’d drop a quick line to let you know how I’ve been doing with my progress. Last year at about this time when I started the MuscleNOW program, I weighed about 155 lbs at 6'1" tall. I now weigh 177 lbs and some change with 10% body fat. Pretty much every muscle group is really improved and bodybuilding/fitness has become so much more to me. I am a student supervisor in my college’s amazing new weight room, and I love helping people out in the gym, teaching them about proper nutrition, etc.
I've broken plateau after plateau. My sister that I see only once a week would note every week that I look bigger and more muscular every time she saw me. In my first 6 weeks of MuscleNOW, I gained more than a few years gave me before. My strength has skyrocketed! I went from benching 135 to 175 lbs! My arms are also incredibly strong compared to what the used to be. I am doing almost twice the weight I used to do in many exercises. The other great change is how I feel. The diet is great! When you start eating what your body wants, when it wants it, you feel so good. I am probably the healthiest person I know! Thanks again for all your help! Feel free to use this message in your testimonials if you wish. I know how important the testimonials are, since they were the major factor in my investment in the MuscleNOW program.
And just think, I was a hardgainer.
Hey, just wanted to write and tell you my results after the first 6 weeks of your program.
Weight: 134 lbs to 144 lbs
Biceps: 11.5” to 12.75”
Chest: 32” to 34.5”
Waist: 28” to 29”
So ten pounds gained, over an inch on biceps and 2 inches on my chest. And just think, I was a hardgainer. Thanks Francesco.
I'm on your MuscleNOW program and making incredible gains. I love lifting heavy and my body has definitely changed for the better. I am now at 180 lbs with about 10% bf. I am so thrilled to have found MuscleNOW and recommend it to all my friends.
Thank you for you help Francesco.
All the best.
GAINS 7 LBS & 1” ON HIS CHEST IN 2 WEEKS!
I wanted to tell you that I have been on the MuscleNOW program for 2 weeks now and I have gained 7 pounds, half an inch on my biceps, full inch on my chest, and have remained the same in the waist. I kinda cheated there for a while on the weekends and missed some meals so I know I could have gained even more but I'm going to stay with MuscleNOW until the end of summer, my goal is to get to 175 lbs and I know that it is realistic with your program. I started at 135 and I’m at 142 starting the 3rd week now.
Thanks for all your help.
I purchased your MuscleNOW program about a year ago and it has changed my life! I have always been looking for a way to gain weight. Before I got your program I was spending over $200 a month on weight gainers and other supplements in order to try and gain weight. For the most part it made the numbers on the scale go up, but it also brought my waist size to 40 inches.
Since I have been on your program I have lost 9 inches of fat from around my waist, and I have increased the size of my chest, arms and legs with new muscle.
I never realized how important diet was or for that matter the proper training techniques you have taught me. The best part of the whole program is, if I have a question I can email you and usually get an answer in 24 hours.
Thanks so much!
BURNS 4” OF BELLY FAT WHILE BUILDING MUSCLE MASS
The MuscleNOW program has worked exactly as you said it would and I have seen a great change in my appearance (34 inch to 30 inch waist with increased muscle size and definition). I can't wait to move onto the next step!!! Thank you so much for your program. I hope to be able to give you even more referrals in the future as I continue to sculpt my body the way that I want. Thanks again!
Man, you sure are the real thing. At the beginning I was skeptical about this program, but you have delivered what you promise and for me that is big, being a man of my word and sure you are too. I started the MuscleNOW course only doing cardio. I did 6 weeks of cardio monitoring my heart rate like you said, 30 minutes a day 5 days a week, and now am on my 3 week with cardio and weights, I went from waist size 43" 1/4 to 38" 1/2, a whopping 4" plus inches off my fat belly, my arms got 1/4 inch bigger, and I feel like new, growing like a baby.
I tell people the truth about your program, it's the best out there.
IN 5 WEEKS, GAINS 7 LBS WHILE DEVELOPING ABS
I have been on the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for about 6 weeks now and following the diet and workout routines religiously. I am happy to say that I am thrilled with the results I am getting. I have been very thin my whole life and after the age of about 24 I started gaining all my weight around my midsection. To someone looking at me with clothes on you would think I was a rail, but I was too embarrassed to take my shirt off in public because of the fat around my midsection. I am now almost 27 and have been working out for about 1 1/2 years, and I was not getting the results I wanted. I had about given up until I found your MuscleNOW web page and figured it wasn't that expensive so it was worth a shot. Thank goodness I did it, because in the past 5 weeks I have gained 7 lbs and have watched my midsection get trimmer by the week. I can almost see all my abs now which is a thrill in itself but as a bonus my arms are getting bigger as well as my chest and shoulders. My back has had incredible results from the muscle gain and fat loss, every muscle in my back are clearly visible. I am presently on Plan-C and about to go to Plan-A as I have saved enough to get equipment for my house and am looking forward to even better gains. I can't thank you enough for the great program.
Well, I just finished up my second week and I must admit, so far I'm very impressed. I don't think I have ever been this motivated about training before. I took my second measurements and I have already gained 1/2" on my arms and lost a 1/2" on my waist. That has never come close to happening before. It's always been very small gains and a lot of work. I kept thinking my wife had to have measured wrong or something. I made her check it three times.
And you were right, so many people have told me the info is wrong or not accurate and on and on. I told my wife that I would just keep working and then they can eventually see the results with their own eyes.
Thanks and keep up the good work!
In 5 weeks, my results are incredible.
I just wanted to thank you for your program. Its been about 5 weeks since I have been using your system, my gains are incredible. I started off lifting about 5 years ago. Since a shoulder injury, weightlifting was off limits per doctors orders. I gave your program a shot, and with your online help my shoulder feels so much better. I can perform a lot more exercises than I could before and could even think that I could again. Through the past 3 years out of the gym, my physique was average. And thru your program, and taking it somewhat easy because of my shoulder, I have noticed a huge difference. I started off at a gross 185 pounds, 39" chest, 35 1/2" waist and a disappointing 14 1/2" arms. 5 weeks later after your help I am now 178-182 pounds, 42" chest, 34 1/2" waist and incredibly, my biceps grew about 2" to 16". My strength is even more noticeable. I am now benching 80 lbs. on incline dumbbells, curling 45 lbs. and 105 on preacher, all for 4-7 reps. And every week, these seem to get easier with your program. I never thought I would be this strong again, nor did I think I would be back in this good of shape.
Thank you so much, this program rocks!
I have just made it my business to write to you about your awesome MuscleNOW program. I have been on (and off, but more on than off) your fat burning and muscle building diet and workout, for about 3 weeks now! I just wanna tell you that, after the first week on MuscleNOW, I started seeing my underwear, showing clearly for all the world to see, as my pants had sank to my hips. I too, couldn't believe the new found firmness of my body.
After 3 weeks, I look great & feel great.
Thanks a lot Francesco.
Your MuscleNOW program works like magic! It is realistic and quite doable.
Hello, Francesco! I completed my first 6-week MuscleNOW cycle this past Friday and am extremely pleased with the results. I am happy to report that I didn't miss one weight or treadmill workout and have been following all of your instructions as close as possible. I gained 5 pounds of body weight while decreasing my waist measurement 1-1/2". My upper arms have gained 1/2" and all muscle groups are much more dense, especially the shoulders and traps. I am very excited with the results and am eager to gain more. My strength gains almost scare me, they came so quickly. I am equally surprised by my energy level. Your MuscleNOW program works like magic! The best part is that your program is realistic and quite doable. Weeks 5 and 6 weren't easy but they would have been a mental nightmare had I continued at that poundage and those number of sets for much longer. Knowing I could soon start the cycle over helped ease the mind tremendously. I used to think I was a failure because I couldn't stick with high sets of heavy poundages for more than three weeks on other courses. Thanks for everything!
I would just like to say, I'm ending my third week on your program - and WOW! Not only am I loving the eating plan, but it has re-energized my workouts.
Just for the record, I have seen more muscle and size gain, and more fat loss in the last three weeks, than I did in 12 weeks on my last program. In addition, I have stopped wasting money on supplements and have found that you were absolutely right about how these products are such a rip off.
To be honest, I did not anticipate these kind of results, so I did not take a "before" pic. The only pic I have is the before pic I took as I started my last routine, twelve weeks before I started your program. The changes from the last program were not much to brag about and my appearance was not much different from when I started, so I didn't even take an "after" pic. Having explained all that, I now wish I had - because my body is changing so fast!
Here are some measurement changes over a 3 week period while following your program. Remember that I am 39 years of age:
Chest: 38” to 39.25”
Right Bicep: 13 3/8” to 14 1/8”
Left Biceps: 13.25” to 14”
Waist: 32.75” to 33”.
Thanks so much for putting your MuscleNOW program out there, it has changed my life. I can't even begin to express how much I love this program - I will never approach eating or working out the same again.
Thanks again, MuscleNOW is the real thing!
I added 3/4 of an inch on my arms in my first week.
I FINALLY started going full force on MuscleNOW about three weeks ago with the full range of exercises and following the diet exactly and I've been having great results. I added 3/4" on my arms in my first week, lost 1 1/4" off my waist in a week and a half, I'm lifting 5-10 lbs more on each exercise every 3 days consistently and my legs have gained so much mass that I outgrew 4 or 5 pairs of pants, all in my first 3 weeks of doing EXACTLY what MuscleNOW teaches. :)
Thanks for everything, Francesco!
As for my gains on MuscleNOW - the last time I weighed myself I had put on 20 lbs. That was nearly 7 months ago! I don't have scales in the house so I must purchase some. Since then though I think I've put on at least another 8-10 lbs. Measurement wise - the following gains in the last 11 months:
Biceps: 13.5” to 15.5” (gain of 2”)
Chest: 38.5” to 41.75” (gain of 3.25”)
Thighs: 20” to 22.25” (gain of 2.25”)
Waist: 30” to 31” (gain of 1”)
Neck: 15” to 15.5” (gain of 0.5”)
Weight: 146 lbs to more than 166 lbs (over 20 lbs gain)
Everyone I know has noticed my results big time and I have to say I'm very impressed myself and I have you to thank for cutting out the confusion out of gaining muscle. The vast majority of this weight gain seems to be lean muscle as I haven't gained much fat.
Thanks again Francesco for everything - you've eliminated all the grey areas I had when it came to building muscle.
Very happy with the results so far and feeling healthy.
I’m now in Week 4, and I've lost 1" from my Waist, Lost 2mm on the body fat calipers, added 1" to my chest and for the first time ever I've added approximately 1/2" to each arm!!
It was difficult for me to change my mindset and get out of old training habits using 3 sets, 8-10 reps with 5 or 6 different exercises per body part, but now I realize that using the right exercises, cycling the number of sets and combining this with the correct diet makes all the difference.
I have recently started a BsC University Course in Chiropractic, so in the next few years we will spend a lot of time learning about Nutrition and Exercise, so we can pass this knowledge on to our clients to help them improve posture or muscular strength, and also reduce body fat. This is a purely Holistic therapy which focuses on assisting the body in healing itself without the need for dangerous antibiotics/drugs (similar to your system in many ways!!).
Although I have several years until I graduate, I do hope that when the time comes maybe we can have a discussion to see if we could organize some way of recommending your system to my future clients.
Thanks again for your help.
I am 44 years old, plus I have battled with extreme thyroid disease for years. I have been extremely hyperthyroid as well as extremely hypothyroid. I've had massive doses of radioactive iodine twice for the hyperthyroidism (Graves Disease), and that is what made me go hypothyroid. Now, I have a "dead" thyroid gland and need to take thyroid hormone daily and have to have blood tests done regularly for the rest of my life in order to stay on top of this. It's been a tough haul, but I have now made the commitment to put forth the effort and do your program in spite of it all.
I've said all of that to say this - I can only imagine what my results would be if I were younger and didn't have health issues. The MuscleNOW program is truly a program that will work for anyone willing to put forth the effort to do it, regardless of age or health issues.
I have lost fat while gaining size and strength consistently throughout the first 6 weeks. I was a pretty good sized guy to begin with at 6'1" and 247 lbs. But I was out of shape and some of that weight was fat, mostly around my middle. After 6 weeks of your program, my weight is down nearly 30 lbs (fat loss), and my pant size is down 2 inches to a 36" waist. My weight is now holding and the fat loss and muscle gain is noticeable on a daily basis. I don't really want to gloat about my numbers even though I'm quite proud, but a quick example of my gains is my biceps. I started with 15" biceps 6 weeks ago, and now sport an additional 1.5" on my upper arms. That example is indicative of my minimum gains overall. My chest, shoulders, back, arms, legs, you name it. There is muscle in places now where there wasn't even places before! And I’ve only just begun!!!!
I absolutely LOVE the program, and can hardly wait until I have several cycles under my belt. The results so far are nothing short of amazing! The MuscleNOW program is EXACTLY what you said it would be!
Prior to starting MuscleNOW I was already doing a heavy workout, but was actually overtraining and under eating. My results then were nowhere near the results I've gotten in just 3 weeks using the MuscleNOW program. I'm so grateful that I found you when I was looking online for supplements. This is so what I needed!
I love working out, I love the MuscleNOW program and best of all, I LOVE THE RESULTS! My advice to anyone that wants to make positive changes to their body, would be to get this program and make the commitment to start it and stick with it. The program is simple and very easy to understand. All you have to do is put forth the effort to do the workouts and follow the program, and you will see amazing results. Yes it does take effort, but the results speak for themselves! I am bigger and stronger in just 3 weeks with this program than I ever was with any other routine I have ever done, and I'm just getting going! I can only imagine how good I'm going to look after getting through several cycles, let alone a year from now. One of my co-workers asked me the other day if I was on steroids or what? Of course I was able to answer ABSOLUTELY NOT! But I took his question as a compliment nonetheless!
My lifting weights increase on a steady basis as well. Weight I was using for sets 6 weeks ago, I now use for warmups! It is VERY SATISFYING! Anyway, thanks again for your words of wisdom and experience, and thank you so much for the life changing program you call MuscleNOW!
Your MuscleNOW program has not only changed my life, but my attitude as well.
I just wanted to let you know that your MuscleNOW program has worked for me far better than I ever expected. I feel so bad that I didn’t take pics. You wouldn’t believe the changes. I’m just over 200 pounds with less body fat than I had at 193.
I have never felt better. I used to drink about 2 liters of Mountain Dew every day and eat anything and everything that was loaded with sugar. Even harder to believe, is how I stopped craving the sugar! I never would have thought that I could eat this much and lose weight. I don’t like being hungry, but on this program, I NEVER felt hunger! Your program has not only changed my life, but my attitude as well.
I REALLY wish I would have taken pictures like I was told to through the program.
God bless you!
I have been following your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for about 11 weeks now and have seen unbelievable results. My waist went from 41 inches to 35, and I am bench pressing 225 lbs for 6 solid reps. I have been very consistent with my diet and exercise 5 days per week. I am 5'10", medium built, broad shoulders, and have gained a great deal of muscle size on my quads, biceps, and chest. I have never experienced these gains in the past because I was on a low fat high complex carb diet with very little protein.
My brother in-law has been working out 3-4 days a week for 4 years now. He currently loaded up on Creatine for the past year now and his muscles look real puffy. We are the same height and I worked out with him last weekend. He couldn't deal with the intensity nor could he bench press 225 for 3 reps without help!
There are a lot of skeptical people out there who are weary of ordering information off of the Internet (myself being one of them), but I had some knowledge of bodybuilding and a friend of mine had me convinced to start trying some supplements before I stumbled across your web site, and a lot of what you mentioned made sense. I am glad I ordered your MuscleNOW program as you have been very helpful. You saved me $$$$.
Everybody keeps asking how I gained muscle and burned fat so quick.
Today makes 4 weeks I have been following the program and I have gained close to 3/4" on my arms, while losing more than 18 lbs of fat!
I have been telling friends. Everybody keeps asking how I gained muscle and burned fat so quick. I share an office with another guy who claims he can see a difference each week. I have lost fat while gaining muscle at the same time!
This program is great and is not hard to follow at all.
Hello! First of all, I want to thank you for your excellent program!!! My wife and I have been on the program for a month now and our stomach size is decreasing and muscles are starting to pop out! THANK YOU!
AMAZING RESULTS IN ONLY 8 DAYS!
I don't know if you will believe me or not, but I swear I am telling the truth. Since starting the program 8 days ago, my waist has already gone down 2 1/2 inches, my chest has gone up 1/4", and my biceps are 1/4" bigger as well!!
Thanks again for your help!!
End of week 3, I’ve lost 10 pounds. My bench has gone from 125 to 160. Lost almost 2 inches from my waist, so I figure I've probably lost 20 lbs of fat, but gained 10 of muscle. To summarize, I'M THRILLED with the results so far!
My energy level is light years above where it was, and I actually look forward to working out. The 3 day per week lifting routine seems to be working out well for now.
You have provided me with a winning plan.
I need to tell you just how much your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program has done for me. When I was on your program the first time a few years ago I was pretty thin but little muscle, and I gained so much, but an accident put me out for some time. But 6 weeks ago when I started your program, I was fat, and your program helped me to lose weight, so its a new side of your program I’m experiencing now and it works great. I’m motivating people around me to start to workout just cause of the results I’m getting. I just want to thank you. You have provided me with the game plan, and I can say that its a winning plan.
Answers and results were what I was searching for and you have given them to me. In two weeks I have lost 2 inches off of my waist and gained an inch on my arms. I personally have spent the last 6 years searching. In the last 6 years I have tried every diet, supplement and weight training plus cardio program to get a great body. I even spent a year working in a supplement store.
I am currently working on my degree in Exercise Science, but none of my lecturers with all the correct letters after their names had any answers.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me answers to achieving results. If you could see me now I have a smile from ear to ear.
Since I see results, I obviously enjoy working out that much more.
I joined Gold's Gym back in February and it is a decent Gym. For the most part, the people are there to work out. They do most of their talking when they're on the bikes, treadmills, or stair masters. I unfortunately don't have the money or space for a home gym, however I did purchase your MuscleNOW course. I don't normally write letters of praise (usually because I'm either not impressed or too lazy), but I wanted to take some time to do just that. I've been following the weight training program faithfully (plan A) for the past month. I've been better about my diet (I used to work out and then get pizza or burgers, etc). I've managed to cut out the majority of garbage that I used to eat, and I really don't miss it. As a result, I've increased on my chest, arms, and strength. My waist is almost 1/2" less than it was (which is fine by me). I can also, for the first time, see the veins running through the areas of growth. I can actually see results from my workouts. Since I see results, I obviously enjoy working out that much more. Thanks again for the wonderful MuscleNOW course.
Hey I just wanted to drop you a note on my progress. I am half way through my 2nd cycle. First off I am 35 years old, 6’2” and I have competed 2 times. I placed 5th in novice middleweight and 3rd in novice light heavy. I did not compete the following year because of an illness and other projects in my life. I do want to compete again. My goal is to be on stage at 5%-6% weighing 195-198 lb. I can see how this cycle takes shape. I am liking it. Here are my numbers:
Weight: 203 lbs to 205 lbs
L. Biceps: 16.75” to 16 7/8”
R. Biceps: 16.75” to 17”
Chest (relaxed): 45” to 46.5”
Chest (flexed): 47” to 48.5”
Waist (navel): 37” to 35.5”
Waist (pant line): 35.5” to 35”
Lean Mass: 176.6 lbs to 183.31 lbs
Body Fat: 13% to 10.58%
I used to do high volume once a week training. I usually felt over trained. I have yet to feel that using your MuscleNOW program, in fact I sometimes do not like taking the weekend off. I may start doing cardio on the weekend. I have not been very good with my eating, so I know that if I quit being lazy and get my first two meals of the day going in good order my gains will probably be much better. You know it’s funny, I was ready for a change in what I was doing, then I found your MuscleNOW program. It’s working. The big key is to feed the machine.
BURNS 3.5” OF BELLY FAT WHILE BUILDING MUSCLE MASS
Hi again Francesco,
Just wanted to let you know I've been on your MuscleNOW program for 11 weeks and I think it's amazing. My goal is to lose fat while gaining some muscle. So far i went from a 37 inch waist to 33 1/2, with this past 3 weeks really starting to kick in. I've followed your program almost to a T, but not totally so I could imagine what would've happened if I did. But I'm getting a lot better at it now. Also my arms went from 14.5 to 15.25.
Your program is very good. I workout 5 times per week, workout option A. I've added muscle definition and lost about 10 pounds and I've been on the program for only 5 weeks. Before I started your program, I found that my muscles leveled off after doing the same routine week after week. Your program provides muscle confusion which I find allows for non-stop addition of muscle. I would recommend this for anyone looking to improve their appearance with exercise and diet.
IN 5 WEEKS, BURNS 2” OF BELLY FAT WHILE GAINING MUSCLE MASS
I'm getting good results. I'm on week 5 with MuscleNOW and I'm down about 2 inches in my waist and up 3/8" in my arms.
I want to tell you that I began the program 5 weeks ago, and I have seen some excellent results. I began the program weighing 190 pounds, not OBESE for me, because I had a lot of muscle, but definitely overweight. At this point, I weigh 182 pounds. 8 pounds in 5 weeks is pretty good for any long-term diet or lifestyle change, I think, but the real treat is that I know I have lost far more than 8 pounds of fat, since I am certain that on your program, I have put on a few pounds of muscle. I've lost about 5 inches off of my waist and see no sign of that slowing down, so the fat-loss phase in which I'm working is definitely effective.
I want you to know that I was doing a low-carb, high protein diet for about 3 years. I had indeed lost weight, but eventually my body just STALLED. I wasn't losing any more weight. Beyond the physiological effects on the muscles and fat, I think your program has a very powerful effect on curbing appetite and equalizing chemical balances that might otherwise lead towards intense cravings for different types of foods.
I've been making good progress thus far with the fat loss phase. I'm dropping waist and scale readings, losing about .75" off my waist and about 3 scale pounds. But what I noticed recently is that I have gained ANOTHER 1/4" on my biceps. So does this mean that I’m losing fat and gaining muscle? Cause I don't believe my eyes.. but that's what it appears to look like. It looks like I’m burning the fat and putting on muscle. I guess this is the butterzone :) Where every bodybuilder wants to be.
During my leg's bicep's days I got a really extreme blood pump in my arms (bicep and forearm) more than I think I’ve ever had. People were looking at me (for a change) at the gym. I'm sure they were thinking, "yeah he must be on the juice."
MuscleNOW WORKS! I try to get people hooked on buying your program whenever they can. But some really just wanna see results and put no effort in. There's not much I can do to encourage those people except tell them all the benefits of a metabolism raise, fat loss, muscle gain, etc.
I've definitely realized that people at the gym (like I used to haha) who don't train with some kind of notebook or plan or sheet to write down their progress and weights with have really no idea where they are at. Perhaps some people are in maintenance and really know their weights. But when I look around my gym, I know a lot of these guys aren’t doing body maintenance, the truth is they just DON'T KNOW what they are doing.
Within 3 months of starting the MuscleNOW program, my shoulder strength literally doubled! 4 months into it my arms had gained an inch with my back gaining about 3. I am not a big guy at all and have always had trouble getting bigger, but this MuscleNOW program is absolutely better than any workout thing i've ever tried before. Thanks again man!
Thanks again for the whole deal man, e-mails and all.
I keep on gaining muscle and getting stronger each cycle.
Hi, I ordered your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program a while back and to tell you the truth I did not use the program until after my schooling began. Anyways I did MuscleNOW for two cycles and I'm very pleased! I put on ten pounds with an extra 35 lbs bench press, squatting over 315 for 4. I thought I reached my genetic limit, but with MuscleNOW I keep on gaining and getting stronger each cycle. It’s an awesome feeling knowing your getting stronger each cycle. Your MuscleNOW program is really great and the the only thing I regret is that did not use your program when I got it. Thank you for everything I would like to write more, but I have way too much to say about my lifts.
I'm a 50 year old busy psychotherapist and a vegetarian.
I've been doing Francesco's MuscleNOW system for 11 weeks now and I'm really loving it. I'm gradually losing body fat and gaining muscle mass. My strength on some exercises is going through the roof. I just beat my all time Personal Best by doing a set of 6 Shrugs with 420 lbs.
I've tried lots of weight lifting systems over the years both on my own and with a trainer. Francesco's MuscleNOW system is the most comprehensive bodybuilding program I've ever come across. And, because of the ability to email Francesco with any of my questions I can keep fine tuning my program to maximize the possibility of fully meeting my training goals.
Owning and working with Francesco's MuscleNOW training system is the single best thing you can do to create the body of your dreams.
GAINS 13 LBS IN 3 WEEKS
I have been on your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for only 3 weeks now and have gained around 13 pounds. I began at 118 and now weight around 131. i just wanted to thank you for this wonderful program and I finally hit the impossible bench mark of 130 and am raising my goal thanks to you.
I was at the gym today for my cardio workout (today wasn't a weights day) and I had just finished doing my treadmill workout. I went back to the changing rooms and was drinking some water (I was sweating quite a bit) and a woman in the changing rooms made some small talk with me.
"Had a good workout?" she asked. I nodded, smiling, and told her I'd just finished my treadmill session. Then she said, "Stop drinking the water!" I put down my water bottle, completely confused, and asked, "Why not?" I expected a long scientific answer threaded with examples and names of studies to prove her point. Instead she said:
"Well, you've just lost a lot of weight doing all your exercise, and now you're putting it all back on!" I paused, and then said,
"What?" I just didn't get it. She repeated what she just said, and then she said, "Water makes you gain weight! Don't drink it!" I just stared at her, completely confused, wondering if there was a hidden camera somewhere in the changing room. I slowly said, "But I'm thirsty - I've just exercised and I'm dehydrated." She paused for a moment to think, and then said,
"Fine, but just don't drink too much then." I just stared. She then said, "How are you eating? What do you eat?" I mumbled something about having meal ratios and generally having a sensible diet. She then said, "I just eat fruits and vegetables - I've lost so much weight already. You should do the same thing - just eat fruits and vegetables."
Anyway, the point of me telling you this? It just brings back such a blast from the past. I've always had major problems with food. Always. I used to be that woman, trying out fad diets and following what the scales said like crazy. On your program I have gained 6kg. Had I gained this much on any other plan, I would have been devastated and resorted to one of my crash diets. But on this plan with my extra 6kg, I've never been happier, because it's 6kg of muscle. My clothes are fitting looser (my tracksuit bottoms were falling as I ran on the treadmill today!) and my fitness levels have increased so much.
I guess your MuscleNOW program just encourages such a sensible attitude towards food and I'm really really grateful for that. I mean it. You have no idea how good it feels to finally eat without guilt. It feels great to put food in my mouth without feeling the need to count stupid 'points' or look up everything in a stupid carb counter book or a GI index. It's taken me the good part of seven years (my problems with food began at the age of eleven, believe it or not) to feel this happy with myself. One thing I was afraid of on your MuscleNOW program was getting too obsessive with food once again and ending up on that all-too-familiar pathway to an eating disorder, and that just vanished as soon as I read through the program. I don't feel deprived in any way at all. And wow, does it feel good.
I did try and explain the need for protein to the woman at the gym, but she was adamant her system was working. She proudly told me she was a size 10, and stood up and gave me a twirl to prove it. On close examination, her figure had virtually no muscle and most of her mass was just fat. Seriously.
I, on the other hand, continue to weight train and eat sensibly and max out on my cardio sessions and see fantastic results.
I owe a lot to you and your program.
God bless you.
In all my years of bodybuilding I haven't made this much progress.
I bought your program about five months ago and have been training for the last two months the MuscleNOW way. The gains have been dramatic. My bench press has gone from 160 to 200 pounds in such a short time. In all my years of bodybuilding I haven't made this much progress. I have grown everywhere and increased strength as well.
First of all, I'd like to thank you for creating such an amazing muscle building program. I've been strength training for over 12 years and frustrated with the lack of results. I've been following your MuscleNOW program for almost 2 years now and I see a significant improvement. I'm a female who is not aiming to look like a bodybuilder. I just wanted to put on noticeable muscle and look solid and healthy and I think that I've achieved that. I didn't tell my boyfriend that I've been training differently, and about 7-8 months into the program he felt my arms and said "Dang!, what have you been doing?! So anyway, thanks!
I just want to let you know how great I think the MuscleNOW program is.
I just want to let you know how great I think the MuscleNOW program is. I am in the muscle building phase and finishing up cycle 6 and my strength has increased tremendously. My bench is the highest it has ever been, all my measurements have gone up except for my waist, and I have veins I didn't know existed. You may not recall but I too sent you a skeptical e-mail prior to investing in your program. It was the testimonials of other clients as well as your response to my e mail that convinced me to try the system. I'm glad that I did.
Your MuscleNOW guidelines are the most effective advice anywhere. I've been a student of bodybuilding for years but have not exerted the dedication or consistency necessary to achieve great results. I've always taken good care of my mind and body. Now, I'm retired and find time, daily, to pursue my goals, one of which is fine tuning what I have left to work with. I'm presently 62 years old and have no physical infirmities. Since studying your recommendations I must say I'm impressed with my gains. Diet + consistency + reps to fail have made my workouts interesting and productive. I'm in the gym at most 50 min. Enough about me, just wanted to let you know how valuable your MuscleNOW bodybuilding course has been to me.
Your program never ceases to move and motivate me each time I review its contents. I enjoy reading through, time and again, your theory and reasoning especially when I can use a "kick in the Proverbial gluteus maximums"
In 5 weeks I have had great results with MuscleNOW.
I just wanted to say thank you for the enlightenment and the help you gave me to start the program. In 5 weeks I have had great results with MuscleNOW, and others who see me confirm my progress. I work out alone at home where I feel comfortable and thanks to your help you emailed me about the diet and routine repeatedly. Since I am blind I had a bit of trouble initially, but again your help got me going.
I've been lifting for many years and had succumbed to the bodybuilding magazine fraud. More sets, more exercises, etc. I have to say that your course is the most comprehensive material on the subject that I've ever seen, and that's with over 20 years of bodybuilding experience! Now I'm finally starting to get out of the non-progress that has had me stymied for so many years!
All I can say is thank you!
My wife lost her train of thought in the middle of a sentence!
I know the program is working because of something that happened sometime around the end of the first cycle or beginning of the second. I walked into our living room without my shirt on and my wife lost her train of thought in the middle of a sentence! What more could a guy ask for?
I am really excited about working out everyday because I have already seen results. This is by far the best advice I have ever read, and am extremely grateful for it.
Your excellent diet and training is amazing, and very easy to do.
Your excellent diet and training is amazing, and very easy to do, and the best of all is that if I need any help or motivation I got you as a personal trainer, thanks to you I got into my first bodybuilding contest.
I must say at first I was skeptical. I have been lifting weights for almost 3 years, I know that's not too long, but in those 3 years I have done every diet and supplement out there, and nothing has compared to your diet and workout plan, straight up bro thanks. I can honestly say I have seen more results (quickly) in 3 weeks then I have in 3 years.
I am 57 years old and am making some nice progress.
I purchased your course last year and I went through the first 6 weeks and was quite impressed. The MuscleNOW bodybuilding program is by far the best, most informative info on weight training and diet that I have ever had the pleasure to read. I am 57 years old and you have taught me quite a lot. I am now into my 4th week this time around, and am making some nice progress.
Thank you for your time. God Bless, and as we skydivers say, Blue Skies.
I follow your words in MuscleNOW like the Bible because I feel that it is the single best program I have ever tried. That is why I follow it wholeheartedly. My friends, new wife and family think I am out of my tree. They are then subsequently puzzled when they realize and comment that I look bigger and stronger. Go Figure!
In 4 weeks I have gained more in strength and muscle mass than I did in 4 months previously!!
I have to thank you!! About 2 years ago I was into a pretty good workout kick. I was working out 6 days/week but completely ignoring the nutrition aspects. Basically, I was eating like crap (college life :). While I did eventually gain some muscle I have to say that in 4 weeks time on your plan I have gained more in strength and muscle mass than I did in 4 months previously!!
Thanks a bunch!
First off, I'd just like to say that you, sir, are a genius. How you ever managed to figure out both the perfect training methods and the perfect carbohydrate/protein ratios is a mystery. And as far as I'm concerned, the money I spent to buy MuscleNOW is by far the best money I've ever spent. Over the years since I bought your course, I've used Plans C and D at different times, and I've experienced miraculous gains from both. You can't imagine how cool it is to be able to ask you questions.
Anyway, thank you, Francesco. You're the best!
MuscleNOW is the BEST and most clearly thought-out bodybuilding system I've seen.
Been using the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for mass gains and am very impressed. I've read and tried stuff by Ian King, Charles Staley, Charles Poliquin, et al. and MuscleNOW is the BEST and most clearly thought-out bodybuilding system I've seen, and this is coming from a guy who has read almost everything out there on the subject and tried quite a few of them. Count me as another very satisfied customer.
I just wanted to thank you for your MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding program. My youngest son saw an ad in a muscle magazine and asked me to buy your program as a Christmas present. I was very skeptical. I don’t like buying things on the internet. But he begged and promised he would follow through with the program. I was still skeptical. But I thought it might be what he needed to get his life back on track. He was an excellent athlete a few years back before he went under a surgeon’s knife that left his equilibrium out of "whack" and his hearing compromised. His life began a downward spiral that lasted for 4 years. Within the past 3 months I have seen such a dramatic change in his body and his emotional well being, that I just had to thank you. He and his older brother are very dedicated to using your MuscleNOW program. They both have most of their friends now going to the gym and working out. To see my 17-year-old and my 21-year-old sons choosing exercise and good nutrition over all of the other negative options in life makes a mom’s heart beat with a gratitude that you can’t imagine. Thanks.
It's almost strange having to adjust to feeling all this new muscle mass on me, and I am a vegan.
Just thought I'd drop you a quick note. I've been on your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for two months, and have been very impressed with the results. I haven't followed it all to a "T" like I wish I could but, I've now got about as much muscle as I've ever had in my life. It's almost strange having to adjust to feeling all this new muscle mass on me.
Also, I am a Vegan, so have been using pretty much just the soy products.
First of all, I would like to congratulate you on your excellent program. I have spent hundreds of pounds in the past, trying to get a better body (most of that went to bodybuilding supplements!), and your MuscleNOW program has answered all the questions I have ever needed to know. It's exactly what I have been searching for!
There are so many useless bodybuilding programs out there, people need to know that MuscleNOW is the best around. I will recommend it to everyone I know!
Keep up the good work, you are the answer to every bodybuilders prayers.
My abs are looking great!
Hi! My upper body is already becoming big and people began noticing the changes! My abs are looking great! I'm feeling great and looking great and my lower body is catching up too, especially my thighs and butt. Hard work is really starting to give me its rewards!! Thanks again!!!!!
I just wanted to let you know how much I am improving since getting the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program! I've trained for almost 10 years and I was going nowhere fast. Heavy Duty had me all screwed up thinking that less was more, but I wasn't getting any bigger. Hell I was "under training"! And here I thought I was a hardgainer. I make gains every week. I'm getting great pumps, even during the day I feel pumped. I hope you reach other bodybuilders who think they are overtraining. MuscleNOW works!
You truly dispel the myths about bodybuilding and are helping hundreds of people in the process. If there's any way I can offer you some sort of help, let me know.
Guys at work have been asking me if I've been on steroids!
First and foremost I would like to commend you on your wonderful MuscleNOW training and diet guide. Its exactly what I was looking for; a detailed step by step guide on how to really gain natural muscle mass and lose fat.
I've been training now for two years and although I have made some gains I have also gained a lot of fat as well. It's so frustrating when you've put so much effort into your workouts and then meeting someone you haven't seen for a year saying, "Nick, you've gained some weight there I see." It totally defeats the whole purpose of training. Your training hard in the gym and your friends are thinking that you have just been stuffing your face with doughnuts!
This was all due to the fact that I had no real concrete training guide. I had previously bought so many bodybuilding books and magazines and studied them religiously. However, I still had no clear system of training that I could be confident was going to work. So I'd kind of hit a brick wall and had almost given up in frustration.
That was until I came across your web site. Your guide has given me the real no nonsense information on how to achieve results. The information contained in your MuscleNOW program is exactly the information I was looking for and it answered all my questions. This information I had failed to find in other books and magazines. Which I am now realizing to be so much nonsense information with selfish motives behind it rather than real tried and tested information, which has been given to benefit bodybuilders.
For example one article I read advised that anyone who was a vegetarian would never be able to make serious muscle gains as a test proved that meat consumption was essential in gaining muscle mass. Me being a lacto vegetarian found this very discouraging. I then found out that Bill Pearl and also Al Beckles were strict vegetarians and they had 21 inch arms! I cant believe people are allowed to write so much rubbish.
I would just like to say how grateful I am for your MuscleNOW program, it gives a complete guide, and HONEST information without all the rubbish you find in other guides which flood you with information you don't really want to know and fail to give you the information you want to know. I just feel sorry for the new bodybuilders out there who have no real guide to training.
But here comes the real proof. Since being on your program I have made some serious gains in muscle mass while achieving leanness at the same time. Guys at work have been asking me if I've been on steroids! This is while I have been on a restricted caloric diet, as I have needed to lose some body fat.
Your advice on sticking to one or two basic movements instead of lots of varied ones is really working. My chest is really growing! My chest was a real problem area. I knew your advice made sense but the proof speaks for itself.
Your knowledge of training and diet is very advanced and it is invaluable to all natural bodybuilders out there. I would recommend your program to anyone!
All I can say is thank you so much! I'm just so grateful.
Francesco Castano ruined my voice, and I'll explain why at the end of this true story. Months and months back, I was well into working out. True, I was attempting all kinds of exercises (most centered on widely varied pushup and abdominal routines) yet I did not have a solid foundation on which to work. I was using a resistance gizmo for arms and shoulders, and to shape my abs I, and I confess it in writing here, used a product endorsed by a former sitcom star. Low I'd sunk indeed. All this however, was replaced with weight training. Ah yes, I'd discovered the wonder and benefits of old school iron pumping. The only problem remained which exercises to do? Which were most effective? I poured over muscle magazines trying to piece together the ultimate workout.
Then, after many dollars and many paper cuts, I found Francesco's MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding program. Francesco's system works. You will lose body fat, you will get bigger, you will get ripped. You will experience that surge of adrenaline and that wave of triumphant intensity when you crank out your last rep of your last set on a high set week (cycling, you'll read all about it). I don't endorse anything...ever. I don't wear company shirts, or hats with logos, I detest brand names. I'm endorsing Francesco because this past summer everyone I knew asked me what supplement (even steroid) I was taking. And they continued to ask me over and over, because they couldn't believe that I could've attained my physique NATURALLY, without buying any high-priced supplement advertised in the fitness mag guaranteeing fat loss or muscle gain in three weeks or your money back.
Thus, I had to explain, over and over continually, that I was on no supplement, and that I needed no supplement, simply that I was on an incredible workout program. Yes, Francesco Castano gave me laryngitis as I tried to repeat the truth to everyone, but he also gave me a body that becomes more finely chiseled each and every week. So I guess we're even.
Your program replaced my personal trainer which cost me much, much more.
I would like to thank you for the MuscleNOW program. I have made great advances in the shape of my body in a very short amount of time. Your program replaced my personal trainer which cost me much, much more.
I've always been skeptical of supplements and have searched fruitlessly for information on proper training and dieting methods. By chance, fate or the hand of God I stumbled across your MuscleNOW web site in search for weight gain information for a university assignment. I couldn't drag myself away from your site! I spent probably 2-3 hrs reading the information on it before deciding this is for me.
Reading your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program has cleared up my confusion regarding training and dieting and I now understand why I wasn't getting the muscle gains I desired. In 3 weeks on your program I've gained 5 pounds. In my chest I've gained 1 3/4 inch and have gained 1/2 inch in both my arms. I haven't had gains like this since I first started weight training over 4 years ago.
Also, I've broken through my 130 lbs barrier on the bench press. For ages I've been trying to get to the stage where I could start on this weight but only ever managed 3 or 4 by myself. At the start of the 2nd week on your program I started on 130 and got to 8 without help and failed on the 9th. I was so stoked!!!!!!!
Thanks, and God Bless!
I would like to thank you for what you have done for me! Your MuscleNOW program is priceless.
I started week five of your MuscleNOW workout plan today. I have increased in size about 1 inch on every major muscle group. My biceps went from 13 inches to 14 inches, chest 41 inches to 42 inches, thighs 2 inches gained, waist has stayed at 33 inches, and most amazing thing is that my curl has gone from 50 lbs to 95 lbs in 4 weeks! So I have gained much strength and size.
I would like to thank you for what you have done for me! Your MuscleNOW program is priceless, and I recommend it to all my friends. Anyone who has been let down in the past by programs that don't work, this one is for you! Let's have no more overtraining.
Just thought I'd let you know that now, in just a couple of months, my bench press has shot up another 40 lbs. making my max 265 lbs. I never thought I'd be able to bench that much. My weight also went up about 8-10 lbs, while my waist went down about a half inch. I also gained about an inch in my arms, thighs, chest and an inch and a half in the calves. Your MuscleNOW program is definitely the best workout I've tried. And I've not even been real strict with the diet. Everyone is saying I look bigger. Even the owner of the gym I go to said so. I've told everyone I know about your MuscleNOW program. Some couldn't believe that I did only 2-3 sets on some weeks. They think that's "not enough". But apparently it is because I'm gaining and they're getting minimal results. I LOVE IT!
Thanx once again for your guidance.
People compliment me daily on my new and bigger size. It feels great to hear that from people.
First of all I would like to thank you for your help with my questions prior to me beginning the MuscleNOW program. Other than that, I have great news. I have just recently completed the first 6 week cycle of MuscleNOW. I haven't been measuring but I have achieved some pretty impressive results for my standards anyway. My arms and chest are really growing in size fast. People compliment me daily on my new and bigger size. It seems like every time I go somewhere someone is telling me "Man, Seth have you been lifting weights? Your arms are really getting big." And let me tell you, it feels great to hear that from people. Here's a list of my strength accomplishments in just 6 weeks. These are workout weights, not max-out weights.
Bench Press: 135 lbs to 150 lbs
Incline Dumbbell: 40 lbs to 50 lbs
Dumbbell Curls: 35 lbs to 45 lbs
Shoulder Press: 55 lbs to 75 lbs
Squats: 225 lbs to 275 lbs
Lat Pulldown: 180 lbs to 220 lbs
With lat pulldown, I could do more but that’s as high as the machine goes!!! Those are really the exercises that I have really been keeping track of but on every single thing in the workout I have added a considerable amount of weight.
My weight fluctuates between 185-187. I started at 181 so I have gained some weight but I really think my fat levels are dropping a lot thanks to following the diet (I used to eat way too much fast food and I really had more fat than i do now). My abs are becoming more and more visible each week. The fat on my stomach is really disappearing more and more each day. I really notice a difference each day I wake up.
I am very happy with my results so far and now I am even more driven to continue the workouts in hopes of achieving even better improvements.
I've never felt so confident and secure with a workout plan. Without confidence in my workout I really don’t have the full motivation to follow it. I have dealt with this lack of confidence with every workout plan I have tried until now. Thanks for making this fantastic MuscleNOW guide to lifting weights and dieting. It really has made my life a lot better.
I was a bit skeptical about your system at first but i am achieving almost instant results with your system now. It feels so good to actually be able to trust the workout plan that you are partaking in. I also just wanted to thank you for being such a great help to me. It’s such a relief to have a workout program to follow that has an author that is truly worried about his customers' problems. I feel like I can’t fail in my quest to be more muscular.
I'm in my 6th week of my first MuscleNOW bodybuilding program cycle. I'm very impressed with the results. Even though I haven't followed your diet plan exactly, I have used it as a guide. I'm starting to see a lot more muscle, I am slowly melting away the love handles while gaining muscle.
Also I have had back problems for years, but my back has never felt better. I used to live off ibuprofen and now I hardly ever need it because sciatic pain has greatly decreased. Also I really like the psychological thinking you touched on in the beginning of your guide, I could really relate to some of the lame excuses and reasoning I would tell myself, it helped me be more aware of what not to do and prepare myself mentally to succeed. Anyway, thanks for help.
People I know come up to me and ask me what supplements I've been taking.
My name is Marko and I have gained some of the best results by following your suggestions. I lost the water weight from taking creatine and people I know come up to me and ask me what supplements I've been taking. It's a great feeling.
I purchased you MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding program six months ago. After carefully reading it and working out my diet I began the program nearly five months ago and must say I have had fantastic results. I was very optimistic before I read your program but all my negative thoughts have well and truly been squashed.
Your program captures bodybuilding in its entirety. I now see the way I eat and train as a way of life, not just a hobby. I had previously been training 2 years, much of it as wasted time!!
I am now in the process of fulfilling a dream and something I never thought I could do and that’s compete as a natural bodybuilder with the INBA federation as a novice.
Thanks again for giving me hope.
I have spent 3 years losing weight and gaining weight, trying what every supplement out there. Never have I felt so comfortable in my own skin until I found the internet’s natural steroid. With the help of Francesco my confidence in and out side the gym has boosted. I've just started my second week and though what I have written sounds corny I can't express how great it feels to know your getting somewhere with your workouts and the nutrition program is outstanding. Thanks again for giving me hope.
First let me thank you for the effort you put into this. You have made my life a lot easier and have enabled me to reach my goals. It is obvious the Lord used you, and He led me to your web sight. I am 28, and have been in and out of the work out scene for 13 years. I averaged 155 lbs at 6-0 tall. I have had only minimal results using creatine and it affected my kidneys. I have never seen enough results to keep me motivated. Just weeks after starting your system, people noticed my arms getting bigger and my shoulders. Any way thank you. You have the only bodybuilding program that works as far as I am concerned, I have tried numerous supplements, and none ever did what they said, even through consistent work outs.
Again, thank you.
The MuscleNOW program is absolutely second to none. Lots of compliments.
The MuscleNOW program is absolutely second to none. I have been following it for close to 2 months now and I have seen some amazing results already.
Lots of complements also, I sing on a worship team at my church, and one Sunday I was wearing a form fitting shirt and many people let me know how great I looked. I have not been following the diet as strictly as I should be, but am getting a lot better.
I have been a customer of yours for a few years now, and I would just like to say that I am still following your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program religiously. I am definitely still making gains. This was the best bodybuilding investment I could have ever made. Had I known at the time that I would be where I am today, I would have paid thousands for your MuscleNOW program, and more importantly, for all of your advice.
We have discussed many different topics in the past relating to general health, not just bodybuilding, and I thank you very much for your time.
AFTER 10 YEARS, FINALLY FINDS A MUSCLE BUILDING PLAN THAT WORKS
Your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program has already, in the first week, shown me more than I have learned in the past 10 years.
Greetings from Brunei Darussalam. When I received the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program, I can't tell you how extremely excited I was, and I wasted no time in reading it.
Wow! Talk about a boat-load of valid bodybuilding information! Your MuscleNOW program has everything I ever wanted to know, and has definitely more than all those muscle building training programs that I have invested before. They're very clear and easy to follow and to comprehend too. Some of the information in the training manuals I purchased in past were valid though as they did provide me with some result but lack in other areas which are quite crucial for the drug-free builders, such as nutrition. They are either incomplete or totally don't make any sense! But your nutritional program has, by far, surpassed every single bit of the hundreds of bodybuilding nutrition theories that I have ever come across!
The nutritional information that you outline in your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program is unique and one of its kind. I have never come across such a well-written and brilliantly structured plan. It helps me clear, if not all, but most of the confusion over the diet issue, and you pretty well know that this is the one area in bodybuilding which is the most debated and confused topic. Finally, my long search for the perfect and personalized nutritional plan is over.
Even after just training for 2 weeks, I have already been able to grasp attention and turn heads, especially among gym mates and few young iron-pumpers in the local gym where I train. Some of them, even don't say a word about what they see, but you know you can tell that they notice something different about you from the looks on their faces. Of course, the progress I've made thus far is still on a small scale, and I believe I'm still far from maxing out in terms of my personal muscular development (God knows how much muscle building potential He has in store for me). But with God's grace and your training aid, I strongly believe I will make a whole lot of muscle packing pounds faster and larger than anything else that I have ever tried before (judging from the amount of progress made and the rate at which it is going). So, keep your head up and e-mail checked, and be on the look out for a guy from Brunei Darussalam in weeks or few months to come, whose bodybuilding gains stem solely, genuinely and legitimately from the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program.
I am already seeing great results in both appearance and strength.
Thanks for the great MuscleNOW program! I ordered it over a year ago, but have really been using it consistently in the last month or so. I am already seeing great results in both appearance and strength so I figured I would just contact you and thank you for all the hard work you must have put into this program.
I should probably take this opportunity to give you a thank you. I followed your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program to the letter for about 6 months. The only exception was that I simply could not eat the required amount of food. Whilst I did not get huge gains in muscle size I did get a lot of comments. In fact I was walking down the street and someone stopped me and asked me if I was a triathlete. And my friend who played first class rugby league for ten years and was a personal trainer told me he simply could not believe how fit I looked and what was I doing?
In short, whilst I did not put on more that about 4kg it did change my physique and my look greatly which I am very pleased with.
I got incredible results in 6 weeks.
I just finished my first 6 week cycle, and I got incredible results:
Weight: 190 lbs to 200 lbs
Arms: 15.5” to 16.25”
Waist: 32.5” to 31.5”
Bench Press: 150 lbs to 205 lbs
Lat Pulldown: 110 lbs to 150 lbs
Shrugs: 120 lbs to 170 lbs
Deadlift: 120 lbs to 170 lbs
Barbell Curl: 50 lbs to 80 lbs
Squat: 150 lbs to 210 lbs
Shoulder Press: 60 lbs to 85 lbs
I feel super motivated, and I am really happy with the results I am getting. God Bless.
I have to tell you that I am another satisfied customer. I love this program. Since starting MuscleNOW less than 6 months ago, my body weight has gone from 195 to 228 lbs. My goal has been to get to 230 lbs. My strength and rep form and overall capabilities continue to go up almost every workout. I have done 3 complete 6 week cycles. The alternating rep work out weeks are perfectly placed to allow my body rest and I do not feel tired out or bored on this workout. Bench went from 185 lbs. for 4 reps. to 255 for 5 reps. Squats went from 225 lbs for 5 reps to 415 lbs for 5 reps last week.
Thank you for the MuscleNOW program, and for your support.
BUILDS MUSCLE SIZE FAST WHILE BURNING FAT
I would like to add my progress reports to your website where you have all of the other people listed. Before I got very serious on the diet my waist was at 42" (down from the 45" I think it was when I first started). That was May 10th. On May 20th, I measure again and my waist was between 40" and 40.5". Also on May 20th, my chest was at 43" up from the 40" 10 days previous. It is working!
To make a long story short, I ordered your program about 4 or 5 years ago. I followed the program for about 8 months and made huge gains. Well, i am embarrassed to say when the "real world" hit, I got off off the program and lost just about everything I had gained. On August 1st, I decided i was tired of being overweight and feeling like crap all the time. I am proud to say that as of today, I have lost almost 40 lbs (238 lbs to 202 lbs) and I look even better than I did the first time. I have followed the diet as close to perfection as possible. I can now drive by McDonalds (and the like), and not even think twice. I have gone from a 43" waist to a 36" waist, and I am still losing weight and inches. I can almost fit into a 34" pair of pants. I can not believe it!!
What's more amazing is my shirts are fitting tighter, I look more muscular, and my wife loves the way I look. I just wanted to share my story with you. This program has worked for me TWICE. Once in college, at 21 years old, and now at the age of 26. Thank you so much, you have definitely changed my life!!!
God Bless You.
VEGETARIAN BURNS 3” OF BELLY FAT WHILE GAINING 1.5” ON HIS ARMS
Hi! I started the MuscleNOW program about 8 weeks ago and I have already lost 3 inches off my waist and have put on 1.5 inches on my bicep. And I'm vegetarian!
The last time I wrote you I had lost 48 lbs and 11” in 10 months. Well it is 3 months later and the weight is still coming off and the strength is still going up. I have the best upper body development that I have ever had. I am starting to see veins in places that I didn't even know I had veins. My family and friends have noticed that I am becoming more cut and ripped every time they see me. I have after following your program for 13 months and 11 days lost 65 lbs and 13” off of my waist. I have maintained the same arm size (17.5 inches) and my legs have actually grown. All this in 13 months. I have never felt better. I have to buy new pants again. This will be the second time. I just wanted to thank you again. I also wanted to reassure all the skeptics out there that this program works if you work it. Thanks again and I will keep in touch.
NEARLY DOUBLES STRENGTH & GAINS 4” ON HIS CHEST
Hope this finds you doing well. Thought I would send a progress report to you.
Due to a bad shoulder you helped me with, my bench press went from 135 to 190 now and gradually getting better. Chest was 44, now it is 48. It is amazing what proper form can do for you when someone like yourself gives proper guidance and instruction.
Here are my results:
Chest: 44” to 48”
Bench Press: 135 lbs to 190 lbs
Shoulder Press: 50 lbs to 125 lbs
Side Laterals: 15 lbs to 35 lbs
Lat Pulldown: 100 lbs to 185 lbs
Pulley Row: 120 lbs to 190 lbs
Shrugs: 120 lbs to 315 lbs
Deadlift: 100 lbs to 240 lbs
Triceps Press: 40 lbs to 95 lbs
V-Bar Press: 50 lbs to 100 lbs
Squat: 135 lbs to 240 lbs
Leg Curl: 80 lbs to 160 lbs
Preacher Curl: 40 lbs to 90 lbs
Barbell Curl: 60 lbs to 100 lbs
So thus far, I have put 2.25 inches on my arms, 4 inches on my chest, and three inches on my thighs.
If it wasn't for your help I wouldn't be where I am today. You're the man Francesco!!!!!!!! I can't thank you enough for all you have done to improve my physique thus far, and you ain't seen nothing yet my friend. My wife thanks you too. She says she loves the way my chest has filled out.
I think you would like to know about my results with your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program. After I got myself down to a 31" waist and had fair increases in strength I figured it's time to grow. I did 2 cycles with the 5 day a week program. The results have been nothing but AMAZING. I never thought I could add in 3 months 30 pounds! Man, that's just AMAZING.
I got so MUCH strength it was SCARY. I benched 225 pounds before the diet and I added 75 pounds, now using more than 300 POUNDS on the bench press in just 3 months.
I never thought I could be a big guy but now I AM!
I feel like I have a secret program while everyone struggles at my gym and I'm always adding more and more weights. It's a great feeling.
This MuscleNOW program is unbelievable, thank you for sharing this information with others.
I just thought that I would let you know about my progress. I have been on the MuscleNOW program for two weeks. I have lost 1 1/2 inches off my waist and have gained 1/4 inch on my arms and chest. This MuscleNOW program is unbelievable, thank you for sharing this information with others. I will keep you up to date on further progress.
Just a quick note of thank you for all of your hard work compiling your MuscleNOW program. Overall I am excited with my progress. I am quickly changing from a fat muscular guy to just muscular. At the start, my waist was 38”, and now after four weeks of consistent gym work I am at waist 34”. I'm cutting up while putting on size which is fantastic. The gym owner where I work out asked me what I have been taking for such dramatic results!
Thank you again for such an awesome program!
I have never seen these kinds of results before.
I am a very skinny person with a substantial amount of body fat (150 lbs), and have been training/dieting without aerobics. I will have to tell you that I am kind of amazed at the current results.
Here's an update since last month that I've been on your program:
Weight: 150 lbs to 155 lbs
Biceps: 12” to 13”
Chest: 32” to 34”
Waist: 36” to 34”
Flat Bench: 100 lbs to 140 lbs
Incline Bench: 75 lbs to 100 lbs
Barbell Curls: 50 lbs to 65 lbs
Deadlift: 190 lbs to 210 lbs
Squat: 190 lbs to 210 lbs
I have already had someone ask me at the Gym on how I'm achieving my results, which in turn was responded by sending them to the MuscleNOW website.
I have never seen these kinds of results before. Thanks for all the support!
To date, your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program has given me the best results of all systems I've tried. I ventured into Heavy Duty/ Mike Mentzer territory for quite some time, and it taught me that while one can maintain mass on once a week or less workouts, it doesn't yield the kind of startlingly quick gains that your MuscleNOW program does.
Between when I started your program in April and the beginning of July, at a height of 5'8, I went from 160 and 8% bodyfat with a 32 inch waist to 196 with a 33 1/2 inch waist. And, considering I was pulling 335 lbs for 12 on stiff legged deadlifts, and my abs were still very visible, I estimate that only 1/4-1/2 inch of that waist gain was fat. Since then, I've gotten as heavy as 210 at times, but at my present height of 5'9 I tend to look kind of funny above 200 lbs. Thanks to doing bench press using the technique outlined in the program, my chest has become absolutely ripped!
The point is people, MuscleNOW works! Thanks for all your help.
It's a pleasure to finally buy something where the author is honest in what they say.
I bought your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program when I was 26 yrs old. I have never been in better shape after using your MuscleNOW diet, weight lifting, and cardio program. All three together, with consistency work like nothing I have ever seen. Its a pleasure to finally buy something where the author is honest in what they say. Your program is a God send.
I have been involved in weight training for 13 years and I went through all of the stages of being skinny, fat and now finally thanks to your MuscleNOW program, muscular and defined! I am only thankful because I have been frustrated for years.
BREAKS HIS MUSCLE BUILDING PLATEAU
I just wanted to send over a progress report - I'm through the first cycle with great results. Arms increased from 13.5” to 14.25”, chest from 37” to 38.5”, and waist from 35” to 35.5”. This is the first time in years that I've stayed on a program for over 6 weeks. In just the first 2 1/2 weeks I gained 5 pounds, and before MuscleNOW I couldn’t get over 165.
I went to Philly to see a buddy of mine who I hadn't seen in a while. He takes one look at me and is like, "what are you doing in the gym? You're huge." It was great to hear a compliment like that. I really hadn't seen much progress in the last 3 years and the gym started to feel like a waste of time. Anyway, thanks again and talk to you soon.
I followed the mainstream advice of so many magazines and took a whole heap of supplements to gain very little in 2 years worth of solid effort. My understanding at that point was that it was just luck, like I have bad "genes". People were always saying eat right, train "HARD", but no luck!
Like so many others I would train more than 5 days a week, with sessions of over 2 hours long. I would look in the mirror and think I'm seeing results. I would say things like in "just a few more weeks and I'm done", to the point where everyone would be impressed. I would go and train in such a manner you would think I'm trying to KILL myself because this is what I believed would get me the results I so badly wanted. I thought training harder and longer would equal better results (what an idiot I was!!!).
On MuscleNOW I was able to grow at 1/4 inch in ALL MUSCLE GROUPS every week without "fail" :). May not seem like much but add it over 8 weeks!
Here are some strength gains over 6 months:
Bench Press: 110 lbs to 220 lbs
Squat: 165 lbs to 539 lbs
Preacher Curl: 66 lbs to 163 lbs
It's not your "genes" or "luck" that governs your results, it IS ONLY THE RIGHT KNOWLEDGE. Labor Under Correct Knowledge = L.U.C.K
GAINS 4.5” ON HIS CHEST & 1.5” ON HIS ARMS
Hi there. In 12 weeks of using MuscleNOW, here are my results:
Arms: 14.5” to 16”
Chest: 40.75” to 45.25”
Waist: 33” to 33.75”
Weight: 165 lbs to 178 lbs
Bench Press: 135x8 to 230x6
Shoulder Press: 70x7 to 120x6
Biceps Curl: 70x5 to 115x5
Squat: 95x8 to 205x8
Lat Pulldown: 85x7 to 160x7
Thank you for the information you have provided in the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program because it has been most useful.
Hi! How are you? First I have to say that MuscleNOW REALLY works! Incredible I have many change on my body, I increase my weight and some important muscles like chest, back, triceps, legs. This really works! And I have only one year with this course and nobody in other gyms can make my body change like this! Thanks very much! Sorry for my bad English.
In 3 weeks I'm bigger and more cut than my friends who have been lifting for 3 years.
It's only been 3 weeks now and I'm bigger and more cut than my friends who have been lifting for 3 years. The greatest thing is I did it all by myself, and of course thanks to MuscleNOW!
Thanks for all your help and I would just like to say that in these last four week (I just started the program) I have noticed drastic results. I and my family are starting to see muscle definition even under all my fat and I haven't even started the bigger diets. I have lifted weights before and have nowhere near achieved the fast results like I have on your MuscleNOW program, it is excellent. I am truly amazed as I thought that MuscleNOW would never work like this even when I started. YOUR program is the only one that I have found that tells me exactly what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat, what sort of exercises and the amount of exercises to do. It is great and well worth the investment considering I will have this knowledge and your guidance for life. You have truly created an excellent program and most importantly a unique one! You have done well my friend. I will keep you posted with my results.
You weren't kidding about seeing results in 2 weeks.
I started two weeks ago, on a 3-4 day plan. So far, I have gained 1/2 - 1" in chest and shoulders and 1/4 - 1/2" in biceps after only 6 training days. And definition has improved from a smooth surface, to seeing small rippling bulges along the pec edges, and lines on the upper arms. I have worked out for 1-2 months at a time before and have seen less results. You weren't kidding about seeing results in 2 weeks.
Things are excellent with my diet and training (196 lbs. at 7.5% body fat -- test done by electrodes). My goal was to reach 200, but I think I look really good at my current weight; I'm trying to maintain this build rather than gaining.
It was really funny when I went to this gym, the guy doing my fitness evaluation asked me if I was getting ready for a bodybuilding show. I told him that this is purely done for aesthetics. Even a couple of guys that asked to work in with me happened to ask how I got like this. I could not believe my ears!!!!!!! It got so ridiculous that someone wanted to pay me. I told him that I'm actually working on a system derived by someone I have never met, and I gave him the MuscleNOW web site address.
I also got a very good compliment last weekend. Myself and some friends went to a batting cage to hack around. When it came to my turn I thought of taking off my sweater, so it would give me more mobility when swinging. Though I was wearing a tank top underneath my friends said wow, look at your biceps, chest and back! I was a little embarrassed and said leave me alone. During my at bat they kept on looking and commenting. One guy said Sam, I'm starting to feel motivated again. That was the best comment of all.
Thanks for the great program.
Thank you for your e-mail support.
I just wanted to send you a note after completing my first 6 week cycle on your program. I followed all instructions carefully and really want to thank you for your e-mail support.
Your program is easy to follow and very educational. In the first 6 weeks I gained 1 inch on each arm as well as just over an inch on my chest. My weight went from 180 lbs to 186 lbs.
I am looking forward to more gains in the next 6 week cycle.
Thanks again for all your help.
I liked the idea of not wasting any more money on supplements that don't work, but most of all was Francesco's sincerity and personal guarantee that the program would work, so I bought the MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding course. I haven't been completely perfect in the diet due to medical reasons, so I attribute most of the improvements to the workout (plan A) itself. I had quit bodybuilding due to joint pains from the old "3 sets of eight" routine, always heavy, never growing. The MuscleNOW program allows for my joints to cycle, using both heavy and light weights, but always with full intensity.
I would undoubtable have even more gains by taking the diet more seriously. I'm 51 and 200 lbs. I've had two major heart attacks seven years ago, and have a pacemaker. That little lump under the scar isn't a muscle. My OTHER heart, the original, is working better than ever! AND, my taste buds have come to crave the simple, healthy foods. If I can do it, you can do it.
The muscle gains have been mind blowing!!
The muscle gains from doing your MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding program have been mind blowing!! I always considered myself a hardgainer, but after reading your program, I realized I was always misinformed. I started the 5 day plan, and after the first week, I put on a 1/2 inch on each arm, and a whopping 3 inches on my chest!! Your program rocks!! I also lost an inch on my waist. I got so excited about the very noticeable results that I forgot to measure my legs. I can't wait to see what the results will be in 6 months or a year! Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into the MuscleNOW program. You are the man!!! God bless you my friend!!
I want to really thank you for all your hard work you have put into the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program. I have read it from front cover to back cover at least 3 times. It's great reading material especially when you lose confidence. But it's really hard to lose confidence when I'm following the guidelines of your program. It is SO INSPIRATIONAL. I couldn't get over how it just lifted my self esteem. I have been lifting weights for a while. I never gained an ounce. I got much stronger, but the results weren't there. So now I’m starting to gain weight and lots of strength! I began as 129 pounds and now I'm at 146 pounds after just 4 weeks into the first cycle. I have always been made fun of (and still am) for being skinny. So out of frustration, I got online that night and found your program and ordered it. I am so thankful for your time and efforts.
It would be great if you posted this email! I want it on your site because I was the hardest gainer! Seriously! Thanks for all your help!!!!!
GAINS 15 LBS OF PURE MUSCLE
In less than 6 weeks I gained 15 pounds (152 to 167) and didn't gain any fat (in fact, I think I actually lost a small amount). Its been about a month as of now since I've stopped following your program to the letter, but I've been able to maintain my weight (in fact I gained another three pounds between August ninth and the first day of school, so now I'm 170). As for the dividends, I've been mistaken for a Junior countless times (I'm a freshman). Many thanks.
I have been on your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program for 12 weeks now (2 full cycles) and am impressed. With your 3 day workout routine, I have gained 12 pounds of muscle and increased definition. My goal when I started, by the way, was to gain 10-15 pounds. I have never been able to gain weight before despite repeated attempts, especially when I was a high school and college athlete, so I complement and thank you for your MuscleNOW program.
It is still hard for me to believe the miraculous results I wake up to daily.
Keep in mind that I have been working out consistently for 7 years and have never experienced gains like this. I am on the end of my second week of my first cycle, and have gained 6 pounds already with my strength increasing in all areas. I have followed your MuscleNOW diet and workout plan to the letter. I know what is like to be skeptical. I actually looked up the name of one of your testimonies to see if they existed. No discredit towards you, it us just that a life time of empty promises from so many companies has left me a bit jaded. I would be happy to help others that experience similar doubts. It is still hard for me to believe the miraculous results I wake up to daily. I had just taped myself for the first time since I started two weeks ago and gained the following (my height is 5'8") - arms up 1/4 of an inch, chest up half an inch, legs up 1/4 of an inch and added 9 lbs in body weight.
My strength also increases every time I go to the gym. The best part is that my gains are not water weight from so many cell bloating supplements I have used in the past. The MuscleNOW bodybuilding program is nothing short of amazing, and I can’t thank you enough.
All I have to say is that your MuscleNOW natural bodybuilding program rocks!! It's been a while since I last e-mailed you but I was just waiting to complete a month with the course & so far the results have been AMAZING!!! I mean words can't tell how great I feel about myself & it's only been a month! Starting out at 5'9, my chest measured 35 inches & biceps 11 inches (exactly one month ago) & now, chest=35.5 inches while arms=12.5 inches (that's in a month!!).
Take care & God Bless you man.
I'm on week 4 and my results are outstanding.
I'm on week 4 right now and am making better progress with MuscleNOW than I've made on anything so far. I've had your program for about 8 years, and when I first got it I remember going through a cycle before I had to commit to the football weight room and the coaches plan, and I remember going from benching 145 to 190 in 6 weeks time, and then I get on the coaches program for about 8 months and I only got up to 205.
I actually tore my ACL that season and got on your program again for a quick minute after I got surgery and did therapy and my leg press built itself back up quickly. But all that is neither here nor there because I've never been able to stick to a program and up until now. I'd been in limbo between workout philosophies because I sometimes had a lack of dedication and I gave in so many times to these programs and diets that ultimately wouldn't work out for me.
Anyways, as I said I'm on week 4 and my results are outstanding. On another diet program that required no workout, I lost a lot of weight but most of it was muscle. The gimmick was that I could lose 9 pounds every 11 days. I did lose 9 pounds every 11 days like it said, but only about 3-4 of those pounds were fat. I lost so much muscle, as I started out weighing about 281 and I got down to around 210.
When I was 281, 200 pounds of that was muscle, as I use a body fat analyzer that is pretty accurate.
Well, after I got down to around 210, I found out that I had 158 pounds of muscle and 52 pounds of fat. I only lost about 30 pounds of fat. 50 pounds of muscle was lost.
All I was eating everyday was maybe 700 or 800 calories. I had next to no protein and I was very hungry. I was drinking a lot of water, and even though fruits and vegetables are good for you, they shouldn't be the base of your diet.
I quit this diet, and didn't workout or eat right, and as I went back to eating like I used to, my weight went up to 240.
I gained about 10 pounds of that muscle back when my weight went back up, but now I had gained back 20 of the 30 pounds that I had lost.
So ultimately, this diet lost me 10 pounds of fat and lost me 30 pounds of muscle.
Well, I started your MuscleNOW program full speed and since then I've gained 10 pounds of muscle and lost about 5 pounds of fat.
It probably would be A LOT more fat but the thing is, I'm not following the diet as well as I should be. I'm getting the protein and carbs that I need to get for a 2500 calorie diet, but I'm cheating on my diet every day by eating a normal dinner where I don't count any carbs or protein and drinking a coke or 2.
On top of that, I'm not doing cardio. I'm doing high intensity interval training twice a week because I'm trying to slowly make every single aspect of the MuscleNOW lifestyle a habit.
I believe that after this cycle I'll be able to drop my cheating ways and start doing real cardio.
But the results of your program so far have been outstanding.
The strength I lost doing that 9 pounds in 11 days diet has come back FAST. Just a few months ago I could only bench 185 about twice. Right now 185 feels very light and I use it on 8-11 rep weeks, getting it for about 10 usually.
Everything else is going up really fast, too.
I will surely be on your MuscleNOW program for the rest of my life because I now realize how good it can get if you do it right, and how easy it can be. I feel much better better now than how I felt when I didn't workout and ate garbage all day.
Thank you for your contribution to my life and many others Francesco, you've made a *HUGE* difference in many, many lives.
I graduated high school 13 years ago weighing 145 pounds at 6’1”. I started lifting because I was tired of being that sickly looking guy. My thought process was to get big without gaining weight. I tried to eat only what I needed to not be hungry. I lifted weights, usually the same old 3 sets of 8 reps without eating enough I never really got anywhere. I then started losing interest and found myself missing the gym more often than I was there. I did this for about 4 years. 9 years ago I weighed about 175 and being disgusted with little to no results I started the regular bulk up training. With this type of training I made very large gains unfortunately most of which was fat around my waist. I hated the fact that I had to gain all this weight to get stronger but from what I heard and had experienced this was the only way to get where I wanted. Everyone that I talked to was like EAT!!! And then eat some more. Also they said to take supplements. I did this and then trained the same way as before with 3 sets of 8 reps. I didn’t really like it but this was working in theory. I jumped up in weight to about 230 and my strength was a great deal better but I was still unhappy with the way I looked. After all, the reason I was doing all of this work was to look good, get bigger and be stronger. I still worked hard at this for about 2 years thinking it was the only way. Then I started looking at all of the resources I could find for something better.
One day I was on the internet and I came to the musclenow.com website. At first I was a little skeptical, but the more I read and when I got to the testimonial from you Francesco Castano your story, it sounded so much like what I had been through and tried that I had to give it a shot. After all, I had wasted that kind of money on all of the supplements over the years. So I ordered your MuscleNOW program 6 years ago. I took the time to read it over a few times and it was very easy to understand and it makes sense. I started doing what you said in MuscleNOW, changing the way I worked out, and the biggest thing was the diet, eating the right foods at the right times. In just a few months I started to see results. I was losing the waist I hated and still retained, even gained the strength that I wanted. In fact I had been asked many times what I was using and if I was doing anything illegal. I was growing and trimming up at the same time. Most people don’t think that this is possible, but I think that is because they are not really willing to give the 110% to do it. I used your training method for about 3 years and I was extremely happy with the results. Out of everything that I have tried nothing has ever given me these results and no regrets.
Three years ago my wife and I decided to build a house on our own. I took off a little more than a year from training. In doing this I have gained some of those hated inches back around the waist. Things have finally slowed down for me so I am jumping back on the wagon and I will be hitting it hard again so that I can regain that trimmed up look and feeling that I had enjoyed. The only reason I tell you this is because I feel that everyone needs to know that you have to stick with it and change your way of life to enjoy all of the benefits. Also I think that the only way for me to get the results back that I had is through the ways Francesco Castano talks about in his MuscleNOW program. Follow his system and trust me you will not be disappointed or lead astray.
I was skeptical at first, but your MuscleNOW program is incredible.
When I first began your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program I was skeptical, but after close to 3 weeks in using your diet and exercises it's incredible. Every tv ad you see is a gimmick on just 20 minutes and you will look like that guy performing the exercises. That's impossible and that's why people get discouraged and they just quit. It takes commitment and believe me I hated working out before using MuscleNOW and now I'm looking forward every morning to doing it. I'm not sore and I am even more productive because of it. You just have to commit yourself. I know people who did the p90x and they achieved very little results. Your program however is just traditional lifting and maintaining a good diet to give you energy. My arms are getting bigger and it's not just a pump after the workout. It's actual mass that stays with you. Your MuscleNOW program is incredible.

I am beginning my seventh week on the MuscleNOW bodybuilding program and I am so impressed with my results. Two weeks ago I upped my food intake and the results are in!! I gained six pounds, added almost 1/4 inch on my biceps, and added 1 inch around my chest.
Since I have started MuscleNOW I have gained nine pounds, added about 1/2 inch to my biceps, and added two inches around my chest, all while keeping my waist essentially the same (I lost a little in the waist then added a little when I upped my food intake, the loss and gain in the waist was 1/4 inch). Over all my body is improving quite a bit. I almost don't know how to act when I see my reflection in the mirror.
I want to thank you again for doing all the research and publishing your MuscleNOW program. I continue to be impressed with the results, as are my parents and family.
Your program puts everything together in a winning way. You also add an aspect of getting in shape that the others lack, and that is your focus on Jesus Christ.
I am looking more muscular than I have ever looked in my life. In addition to how I look to myself, others have noticed the improvements.
Thank you and God Bless.
GAINS 4 LBS IN ONE WEEK
I purchased your MuscleNOW bodybuilding program two weeks ago, read it cover to cover in two days and have been rigorously following Workout Plan A and the nutritional guidelines given.
In one week I have gained 4 pounds, which may not seem like much, but I've been seriously working out for 5 years and have gained practically no muscle after trying a multitude of other (expensive) exercise plans, supplements and diet regimens.
The MuscleNOW program has truly made a difference and I recommend it to anyone who has all but given up hope!
I just wanted to give you my update after six weeks of training. I started off at 132 lbs and went up to 144 lbs. I am very pleased with your program and recommend it to anyone that is not happy with his or her appearance. I see how well it has done for me and plan on pushing even harder on my future workouts. Everyone is noticing a difference and is telling me how much better I am looking. Thanks for all your help and also for helping me build more confidence in myself.
GAINS 7 LBS IN ONLY 1 WEEK!
How are you, I've been using the system now for one week, and it's incredible that's all I can say! I've put on approximately 7-10 lbs, and I see a lot of nice cuts on my body especially my arms! MuscleNOW is for sure one great program, and thanks for answering all my questions.
After being on the MuscleNOW training schedule and diet I grew 2 whole inches on both of my biceps in 2 short months. What is even more incredible is that one of the guys in my gym that trained at the same time of day as myself only put on around 1 whole inch in the same space of time, AND HE WAS USING STEROIDS!
This MuscleNOW program is pure gold, and you will not find anything like it anywhere else (believe me, I have looked).
Thanks again for all of your help and advice Francesco.
MuscleNOW gave me the power to increase my measurements on a weekly basis without supplements.
I started off as an extremely skinny hardgainer. I tried many of the top programs from the Internet, from books and from magazines. Nothing worked for me. Until I tried MuscleNOW that is. I gained week after week and I had the measurements to prove it. No expensive supplements. Just the MuscleNOW diet and workout plan. MuscleNOW gave me the power to increase my measurements on a weekly basis, without the use of any supplements. I also gained a huge amount of strength. Many people have asked me what I'm taking. I just point them to the MuscleNOW web site. Thanks Francesco, you have been a tremendous help. With your program, the best thing is I feel I am able to do what ever I want with my physique. Be it gain muscle, lose fat or both.
MuscleNOW really works, and there are many muscle building before & after testimonial pictures
