Ready to be Insanely Inspired?
More Muscle Hackers have submitted some awesome testimonials. For example….
“Hi Mark, just wanted to say thanks – you have changed my life.”
“I’ve had more gains in the last month than 14 months of gym with a trainer!”
“the results have been impressive. dropped about 25lb, down to 12% body fat and can see my abs”
The difference between these testimonials and the ones in bodybuilding magazines and websites is that these are actually REAL! LOL. They certainly weren’t paid for and the people contacted me of their own accord; they were not solicited in any way.
In case you haven’t visited the testimonials page recently, I thought I’d show a few here to help light a fire under you!
Check these out…

Before & After
“Just wanted to say thanks to Mark for encouraging me think outside the box when it came to health and fitness. I have worked out for years and have always been in decent shape, but am very ectomorphic and not genetically inclined to gain lots of muscle and could never quite get those really defined abs and I always felt my body was too soft for how much work I put into it (4-5 days a week at the gym). After these past few months of changing my diet and workout strategies based off Mark’s suggestions, while I still weigh about the same, my body fat has gone down from 12% to 8% and there are definite improvements in muscle definition and quality.”
Forum Member – Antonio Wright
NOTE: I can’t take all the credit here. Antonio has been dieting since November ’07 but switched to MANS six months ago.
Before & After
“Now, it has only been the last 6 months that I have been on the Anabolic Diet (MANS). I purchased six pack abs and I have been tweaking it around my lifestyle.”
Kwan Song. Brisbane, Australia
“Hi Mark, just wanted to say thanks – you have changed my life around. I was once a lazy couch potato and you motivated me to work out! After 3 months of being dragged to the gym by my girlfriend, I managed to lose 3 kilos with strict calorie controlled dieting (yes I was idiotic enough to try out those fat burning pills and shakes) and endless cardio (came to a point where i could run for a full hour at 12 km/h non-stop), I looked around to see if there was any other option(s)…(just anything) until I came across MuscleHack.com.
At first I was a little reluctant, then after days of research (on Atkin’s diet and the mechanics of insulin) I decided 2 weeks is worth a try.
I heard some people take weeks to get used to it, but fortunately I was blessed as it only took a few days to notice the difference. Exercising became so much fun because I started to see definition on my body!
Yes! Something I never expected to see in the year 2008.
After 6weeks I lost 6 kilos / 13.2 lbs (and still losing) and I feel good looking in the mirror.
I eat what I want once a week so there’s no frustration (well, the frustration dies out eventually).
I recommend the site to all my friends who say “What are you on?” because I really couldn’t have done it without Musclehack.com and MANS diet!
Spas. Sofia, Bulgaria
“Thanks to this program (THT free weight training routine), given to me by my personal trainer, I have managed
to accomplish what I always wanted – to be healthy, strong and most importantly
– to feel great and in shape. I managed to lose only 5 kg, but the amount of
muscle mass I gained made my body look completely different. Doctors had
explicitly forbidden me to train with weights. Nevertheless I managed to safely
achieve excellent results. This fact speaks in and of itself for the quality of
this system. Naturally, when something makes you feel excellent, you want more
and more of it. That is why I intend to continue training in this manner because
it is the best one for me.”
Note: The Personal Trainer Spas speaks of here is Yavor from Relative Strength Advantage. Thanks for passing my training program on, Yavor.
Piotr – Krakow
“Ive been following your diet for a few weeks now. Amazing results:I lost all
the fat accumulated over the last year and have seen increased muscle growth.
Many thanks for this.”
Jason Cremins Cambridge, UK (from signagelive.com)
“Mark, love your blog. Have dropped 4 stone (56 pounds!) from 17 to 13 stone whilst building muscle“
Mitch. Worcester, UK
“Mark, what a site! have not stopped reading it since i stumbled across it
about 3 days ago. What you say makes so much sense. I’m a level 3 personal trainer
and you have me sold on your whole approach. Best stuff i have read in a long
time, love the way you not pushing this and that, and your giving so much for
nothing, well its really appreciated. People no longer know what to believe from
companies pushing there products just to get the ££s. Keep up the amazing work. thank you so much… Mitch”
Matt of Draconis Vineyards
“Thanks for access to your ebook – just wanted to let you know that I’ve been following your plans (MANS) and the results have been impressive. dropped about 25lb, down to 12% body fat and can see my abs. Go figure. Sending my wife over to read it.”
Leo, Christchurch, New Zealand
“Great work Mark, this site is like an oasis in the desert haha – it’s extremely rare to find real, genuine information like this on the net. And as for your 5 day workout routine, I’ve had more gains in the last month than 14 months of gym with a trainer! (I’ve only got 2 dumbbells and a flat bench to boot!) Cheers for the inspiration mate”
Man, I feel like working out!
- Who says you can’t build muscle fast?
- Who says you can’t drop fat fast?
- Who says you can’t build muscle & lose fat at the same time?
Like SurferX said, you can when you think outside the box – That’s what MuscleHack is all about.
If you have your own testimonial, don’t hesitate to contact me with it, I love to read them.
Stay Pumped Muscle Hackers!

Well, Antonio definitely inspires me the most.
Great transformation. Always love seeing these kind of pics. I’m doing great as well. Thanks for all your help Mark!
One question: Is it okay to put my carb-up days on my training days? I workout three times a week and after working out I’m so hungry and I just seem to not get my stomach full without some calorie-dense carbs such as rice/pasta.
I’ve been doing this for a couple days now and haven’t noticed any complications or differences in my body (well, I actually seem bigger lol).
I’m just not sure if this contradicts to any of the low-carb principles.
Thanks for reading 🙂
That’s perfectly fine, Dorian. During my last cycle I worked out on both my carb-up days.
Wow! Congratulations to all the muscle hackers above!! I love this site, and all the free info you provide, Mark.
Antonio looks SICK. Josh is also ripped. Plus – he lives by the beach. Man, I want sun badly lol…
But personally the progress of my man Spas makes me the happiest. Doctors literally said he isn’t allowed to lift anything heavier than a pencil lol, but we modified most exercises to make them sitting/lying and with no increase in blood pressure and he is gaining muscle at a nice pace.
We use 6-9 sets per muscle, 2-3 exercises, 8-12 reps per set, each set is treated as an individual exercise (check the post Mark this on the subject – this is KEY).
Also, with very little equipment you can train at home with some modifications – for example you can train bi’s, tri’s, chest, delts and even back with only a set of adjustable dumbbells and an optional EZ bar that is compatibale with the dumbbell weights.
Thank you all for the kind words. Dorian, I was wondering the same thing. I recently switched along the lines of Mark’s carb loading of late Friday and all day Saturday. Things have been going really well!
I was just concerned about my workout performance on Saturday morning.
Wow! These are great – very inspiring especially when you hit a sticking point (like I have on body fat at the mo).
My testimonial – I’ve got a couple of shirts that won’t fit round my arms any more due to the muscle gains from Muscle hacking!
