Promising to reveal the secrets behind their “megabolic drive” discovery, this program advertises that this system will make you freaky big.
The sales page says the program comes as a 207 page, 3 ring binder. I didn’t get that. I got a 183 page wire-bound book.
Not complaining, just noting the difference.
The pages are on heavy paper and it is of better quality than you can generally expect with hardcopy muscle building programs.
The first 20 pages of what I got was a devoted to a table of contents and bios of the authors: Former competitive natural bodybuilder Wade McNutt and his co-author Matt Gallant.
Note: Apparently Wade has abandoned his catchy last name “McNutt”. He now goes by the more new-age sounding Wade “Lightheart”.
The next 60 pages were an explanation of the principles that make up the “freaky big” way of training. Within these pages are the secrets to McNutt’s “megabolic drive” stuff. Basically, the claim here is that with the freaky growth training in combination with the eating, supplementing and recovery techniques will produce truly astonishing results that are actually better than steroids (according to their line graphs and assuming you don’t realize the graphs aren’t based on anything but their creator’s imagination).
I found the “secrets” pretty anti-climatic. The advice is to eat extremely clean, do some extensive relaxation techniques (massages, meditation, stretching) and then to open up your wallet and spend a ton on bodybuilding supplements.
What supplements? Well, what you also get in those 60 pages is sales copy for other freaky growth products. They want to buy their $50 exercise instruction videos. They want you to join their monthly hemp protein club for $100. And their big push seems to be for their MassZymes (enzymes) club which can set you back $500 a month.
The freaky growth people call their two supplement products the “two biggest breakthroughs in the history of body building nutrition.”
Are you freaking kidding me?
$500 a month for enzymes?
Again, are you freaking kidding me?
No, they aren’t. If you follow their supplement plan completely, you’ll be lucky to keep your supplement expenditures under $1,000 a month.
And if you complete the “Freaky Big Naturally Training System” program, they have more training systems they want you to buy. The finale appears to be what they are now advertising as the “last bodybuilding program you will ever need to buy.” That program is “Muscle Mastery” and goes for $500.
I don’t think anyone benefits from excessive supplementing. When someone is advising that you spend mortgage-payment-like-money on supplements, it is a good idea to consider the source. And when that source is the seller, you would be wise to evaluate that advice with that in mind.
McNutt does have some interesting thoughts. While those first 60 pages are a bit bumpy in terms of organization and the not-so-subtle sales tactics are annoying, there are some quality tips and ideas in there. Specifically, I got a little from his thoughts on sleep and relaxation.
The last 100 pages are day-by-day training schedules. The training is based on going back and forth between “freaky foundation” training and “endless growth” training with the goal of maximizing your nervous system capacity and therefore your muscle gains. It seems to be decent theory.
The bonuses include 4 audio seminars. There is some mildly interesting stuff here as McNutt goes through preparing for a workout and some motivational techniques. Then, on one self-aggrandizing CD, the co-authors start talking about how they expect the world to acknowledge them as geniuses in 20-30 years. They talk about how they will be lifting and going strong at the ages of 100 and beyond.
There are also several short reports which are unremarkable. Also advertised is 3 months access to a private members board. I never found that. The site listed was down at the time of the review. In fairness, I declined to let them add me to their mailing list after purchase (the freaky growth guys aren’t shy about filling up your in-box with freaky offers) and so maybe there was an explanation for this.
2 of 5 Stars: McNutt has built an impressive physique and certainly has some insight on bodybuilding training. I just wish there was more emphasis on imparting that insight within “Freaky Big Naturally”. And I wish there was less emphasis on what appears to me as an attempt to suck as much money as possible from those desperate for bodybuilding results.
If you do choose to buy this program, don’t be too quick to put your checkbook away. The freaky growth guys are just getting started with you…
