Here Are Just A Few Things Readers Of Building Muscle 101 Are Saying...
Hey Blake: I hope this message gets through to you, because I wanted to thank you all at Building Muscle 101... After following your guidance and training plans I have achieved in one year my goals as far as body shaping and condition.
I am 45 years old and all my friends ask me how do I manage to keep such a young figure. I direct them to Building Muscle 101. Following your plan I had noticeable results in one month. Great job, keep it up.
I just want to say I came across your website a little while ago and have found it more useful and informative then most big name sites such as mens fitness and some others. I can say I have gone from a 35 waist down to a slim 32 and you site was a big part of that.
Keep up the good work,
I would just like to say thank you for all of the help you guys have provided me. When I decided to start exercising and getting in shape I found that nearly every place I looked was asking me to pay anywhere from $50 to $130 to get in depth instructions on the workout regime. As someone who is just getting started it seems outright ludicrous to pay for something I don't even know will be worth it. I am so happy I found your site.
I have only been training for a couple months but have started seeing some results and am eager to see where this takes me. Even my girlfriend who always claimed she "didn't like guys with muscles" is starting to notice. You provide so much information on every aspect of training from exercises and supplements which I realized were important, to nutrition which I knew relatively nothing about.
The best part about this program is the quality of the information. I don't feel like i'm being pushed to buy anything. I just feel like I'm getting straight up facts from someone who knows what they are talking about. I like how the program focuses on compound movements and free weights to build overall body strength with the 2 workouts alternating over 3 days then moves into 3 individual workouts to more isolate the muscle groups and gives tips to improve your workout.
I just wanted to express my appreciation for all the help I have received from you. You could easily be charging money for the info you provide as many others do but instead you offer this information for free. I have noticed an improvement in my posture, a boost in my self esteem, and an overall better mood from day to day and I owe it all to you. Thank you Blake and everyone else over there. In the world of fitness you never know who you can trust. the magazines are all biased as well as most web sites but you are the one place I trust. You are doing a very good thing!
Hi Blake: I am finishing up a cycle on the "Increase my bench press" routine from your site. What an outstanding way to make gains in this exercise. I will be 48 years old in the next 2 weeks and I am benching more now than I did in high school and College.
Your thoughtful approach to body building and strength training is right on. I spent years in the gym over training and stagnating. I'm finally making the gains I wish I had made years earlier. I try to give your web site out to as many young guys in the gym as I can who are training without any direction. Keep up the great work.
Hey Blake: Thanks for the emails. Everthing is going great. I've been eating better and my bench went up 10 pounds already. Keep the information coming and thanks for the free ebook.
Hi Blake, I have been going over again all the information you have sent me. I really appreciate it. I enjoy reading what you have sent. I feel you are one of the few people that has a good philosophy on working out and body building. Thanks again for all the info you have sent I have put many of your ideas to good use and it's great to read your stuff and get back to basics. I have shared your e-book with my brother and my dad and they have used your workouts with great results.
Hi Blake! I hope everything is OK with you. Thanks a lot for the program. I was able to download the program in .pdf Format. Wow! I'm impressed... Not because my body changed overnight, but becouse the tips, suggestions, routines and nutrition opinions that you wrote in your guide have helped me to understand when to eat, how to train smarter and mostly... to calculate the amount of protein and carbohydrates that I need after excercise. I now know how to buy the best supplement according to my needs. Thank you very much and I'm delighted to recieve any other tips that you can send me.
I would just like to say thank you very much for your free e-book! It has helped me very much to gain muscle and strength that I never thought I could achieve. By sticking to your plan, I started seeing results within just a few weeks! Thank you again and continue to do great work.
Hi, I'm Jordan. I just wanted to thank you for your program and advice. I was 5'4' 116 pounds and after just 11 weeks I'm 132 pounds. My squat jumped up from 185 to 235 as well.
Hey I just wanted to say thanks for creating your site. I'm an 18 year old male from the UK and am attending university. Recently I've put alot of weight on and really felt I needed to sort it out.
At 6'1, I got one of two body shapes: Bean poll or bean poll wirh belly. LOL. I decided it would be best to bulk up and use the fat I have to make muscle. I know its not as simple as that but your site has helped me to get started.
I think its great that you've given all the information away for free and that you really know what your talking about. So thanks for your help!
I'm a 54 your old male and last year (2011) I could see the first signs of middle-age spread creeping in. When my grandkids mentioned my 'tubby belly', I knew I had to do something.
I was looking for a home work-out routine that I could fit into my busy life style. I came across your website and the Dumbbell Workout Routine while searching the net.
I bought myself a set of dumbbells, a barbell and a chin up bar. I have been using your routines since last July and have followed your tips with throwing in different exercisers to vary my routine, as well as adding a little extra weight.
At my age I don't want to have a body like Charles Atlas but your website has helped me really tone up and get into shape.
P.S. An added bonus is the admiring looks from women. (Sounds big headed I know, but it really boosts my confidence when out socialising)
Hey Blake, just wanted to drop you an email and give my thanks for taking the time to put your site together. About three months back I decided to start trying to get into better shape in advance of the birth of my first child (maybe live to be a grandfather), and so I've been spending an hour three or four days a week at a local running track, making sure to get 10,000 steps a day and at least 20 flights of stairs.
For my workout I start with a pretty vigorous full body stretching and pushup routine and then do a slow run for about half an hour. I've also cut out beer and junk food and have been trying to stick to whole grains when I eat carbs. I've dropped around 10 kg and am definitely starting to see some tone, but I wanted to start taking the weight training a little more seriously. I
found your site and have been amazed at just how much detailed and useful information there is. Next week I plan to start training using the incredibly comprehensive beginners guide on your site. I look forward to letting you know how it goes!

I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you thank you. Unlike you I worked out from time to time, but only got really serious over the past 4 years or so. After taking a new job, I thought hey maybe I will ditch my 4 day workout and shoot for a 5 day workout. After a quick Google search I found building-muscle 101.
Let me say that I am very very very happy. In the past I would say I was fairly strong...Squat over 400, leg press 1100, bench just under 300, etc. Then I found your program! WOW...I am super happy with the results. In the beginning I could not get through your entire program. I would complain and think who the hell does this guy think he is trying to do so much crap in one session? But you know what? I am not a quitter. And it has been less than a year on your program and I can do everything in your 5 day workout schedule! (I skip the cardio, but I take classes to get my cardio in) I was pushing to break the 240 mark, but it just wasn't in the cards. So as my wife and I do every year (a cleanse if you will) we give up meat, caffeine, alcohol, and other vices.
I went from 238 to about 222 in less than 3 weeks. Well after finishing that I took another hard look at your program and decided to keep doing it as opposed to changing. It was a great decision. I now have (somewhat of) a six pack, very nice arms and I am overall very satisfied. Hell, even big work out guys in the gym are noticing the gains!
Thanks again and keep putting out great stuff!
I have no routine or tip to add I just wanted to say thank you. I've put my body through quite a transformation this year and I owe a great deal of it to you and your website. I went from a 38' waist to a 32'. (I still cant find my damn abs haha) Your nutritional information and incorporating your weight lifting routines has helped me to be in the best shape of my life at 30 years old. So thank you, you've really done a lot for me.
