|Skip down to the “Bottom Line”|
From the land of make-believe comes a new entry into the muscle building program market.
The sales page reports that an ass of a man known only as the Musclehead has gotten so sick of so many people asking him just how he attained his “Godlike physique” that he has generously created a guide to help the world’s “skinny losers” become just like him.
Hmmm. Sounds like a load of crap.
Of Note: The sales page and marketing has been toned down a lot over the years. The program was first titled “The Musclehead’s Guide to a Godlike Physique” but now has gone to “Muscle Growth Formula”. I’d assume the tone of the actual program has been changed as well. I haven’t, however, seen an updated version of the ebooks (nor do I care to, the program is just a marketer’s attempt at getting some money and I can’t see any bodybuilding value in that).
So, this review is based on the old version.
Some quick investigative work reveals that “The Musclehead” has been posing online as a lot of things over the past few years. One of the things he has presented himself as is an expert online marketer. That one may be true…
But as for the Godlike man, I call BS on that one.
The program is proof enough that his bodybuilding knowledge is rather limited. Like other programs put together by marketers, the information is painfully generic. It isn’t that the advice is necessarily wrong, its just not anything anyone hasn’t likely heard before. There is no unique muscle building insight, no new ideas, not a single thing to suggest the author has ever pushed a weight heavier than his pencil.
The ebook is just 45 pages long and a good portion of that is fluff as the author develops the Musclehead’s character.
You’re treated to classic lines such as, “I like to think of my body as a fire. And not just because it’s extremely hot.” Just when you think it can’t get any more absurd, he actually gives you some tips on gym etiquette with the caveat “…I never bother doing this myself, I’m the Musclehead, I’m not expected to do this. When you look as good as me, you won’t have to either…”
If this was a spoof of bad muscle building programs, I would give it a thumbs up. I laughed out loud in several places. It is entertaining on that level. But when you realize that it is being sold as a legitimate answer to those struggling to build up their bodies, it just makes you mad.
Notable bonuses include an exercise ebook, a workout book and a “coaching program.” The workout plan isn’t horrible but isn’t anything special. The exercise instruction is brief and, really, there is much better available freely online. I didn’t check out the coaching deal.
1 of 5 Stars: This program is very similar to the Muscly Jerk scam in that they both present themselves as heavily muscled jerk cartoon characters and are both slimy marketing efforts trying to appeal to some bizarre, irrational part of the brain. I have no idea what part of the brain that is.
My advice is to not spend your money on this “Muscle Building Formula”. If you do, you’ll likely soon feel exactly like the “simpleton” or “moron” that the “Musclehead” repeatedly calls you in this ebook.
Trust me, there are much, much better programs out there from quality trainers. They won’t teach you how to become jerks but they will get you building muscle.
