I got an interesting testimonial with pics in my inbox recently that I had to share.
What made it so interesting?
This line…“My company is Bethesda Bagels and I hope this helps show I’m not a fake. www.bethesdabagels.com is my family business and honestly I’m just trying to physically keep up with my dad and brother, both are much bigger than I am. www.bethesdabagels.com (301)652-8990”.
Bagels and getting ripped don’t usually go together, so I was intrigued.
If the above info isn’t enough for the
douches/cynics that these posts usually attract, this is Lee’s Facebook profile as well.
So let’s hear what he had to say…
“Mark, I wanted to start off by saying thank you.
“I started on your website at the beginning of March ’11. Now, I had already started working out and eating better, but my improvements were few and far between. I was probably around 190lbs roughly when I started your website’s programs. I was lifting multiple times a week, hitting each body part way too much; basically doing everything you pointed out not to do.
“While my diet was never bad to speak of, I never really denied my body any foods, or really put any nutrients into it, which kept me floating between 190-200lbs for the past 12 years or so.
“I now workout 5-6 days a week following your Total Six Pack Abs program, along with watching all my foods.
“Now I won’t lie either, this all started because of Twilight the stupid movie. When it came out those 2 guys (skinny vampire, crazy buff werewolf) seemed to be the 2 icons of what men should look like. Now I am NOT one to care about those types of things, but you can’t help ignore what people talk about constantly. I made a joke that if that’s what my wife wanted, I could become her skinny vampire in no time, followed by my transformation into a werewolf type body.
“All joking aside, neither my wife nor I thought that I would ever be able to do anything close to what I’ve accomplished.
“That first photo was from summer ’09, although my body didn’t really change much at all until sometime late 2010. And that was just from starting to do some cardio, which shed a pound here or there, but no body or physical improvement.
“I do very little cardio although I have been starting a little bit since hockey is starting back up, only to keep my lungs in shape.
“I totally understand people who are skeptics, I myself have been one for years. I honestly did your program for about 2 months in order to cut everything. I kind of went crazy as I was going on vacation. I have been chubby my whole life and I’m loving every single minute of vacation with a body I’m not afraid to show off. (been without a shirt most of the time thanks to you).
“I also wanted to emphasize to anyone who may read this if you decide to publish it, that I am by far the most normal guy you can find. I’m not built with a martial arts background, or brought up playing extreme sports and lifting my whole life. I am a 27 year old guy, who works retail, with my only physical activities being hockey once a week since I was a kid.
“On top of that I never really lifted any weights, and had all sorts of back issues before this change. I never thought I could accomplish anything physically due to all the times I’ve tried and failed using others methods that just don’t pay off.
“Mark, again, your website is amazing and its changed my life forever. I could not be happier with my new and improved body, and I am only going to take it to a whole new level. Thanks for providing such quality information, of which 99% of it is free. You really are one of a kind.

“P.S. My wife says THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU”
Well done, Lee!
That’s a major achievement, especially in light of the fact that you’re constantly surrounded by bagels!
It’s always great to have another Muscle Hacker and TSPA’er in the fold!
P.S. I’m quietly working on THT 4.0 in the background guys! It’s definitely dropping this month (May ’11)
