MI40X Review: Ben Pakulski’s Muscle Building Program

Mass Intentions Extreme 2.0 (MI40X)

Mass Intentions Extreme 2.0 (MI40X) is the “sequel” to MI40, a program that came out a couple of years ago. The number 40 was important in many aspects of this system. The trainee, for example, usually worked out for 40 minutes each session.  This “new and improved” version added some other important techniques and concepts to make it even more effective.  The result: one of the most successful hypertrophy programs I’ve ever seen.  Before I go any further I’ll tell you about the author.

MI40XReviewIntroVideoBen Pakulski is a professional bodybuilder who has competed at the highest levels of the sport. He is known for his massive physique and has some especially outstanding calf development.

He is also known as one of the best trainers in the world. Fitness professionals from all over the globe come to him when they want to take their physique to the next level. Ben’s approach to training is methodical, and he is very deliberate about how every repetition of every exercise is performed. He is a true expert on fat loss, building muscle, bodybuilding, and training in general.

Cell Expansion Protocol (CEP)

The most important concept in MI40X is CEP training. These techniques are based on how muscles grow at the cellular level. Scientists have discovered that bigger, stronger muscles are composed of cells with multiple nuclei. Elite bodybuilders have more nuclei per muscle cell than smaller individuals. Those who use this program will learn how to incorporate this scientific fact into the way they train.

MI40X Components

Trainees who buy this program will have access to the full training guides (e-book files). You can follow the workouts that fit your level, whether it is beginner, intermediate, or advanced. There are seven total phases to this system and I would suggest you follow them exactly as they have been designed. You will start out with a “primer” phase before you move into the more intense training. After that you will go through different levels of training, each one building off the other.

It’s also important to read over the nutrition guides that are included and follow them precisely. Protein is the building block of muscle, so you’ll need to increase your intake of this macronutrient. Carbohydrates are fuel for your workouts, so you’ll eat them at strategic times. Those who are interested in losing fat will need to manipulate their carb intake accordingly. These are just a few examples, but you can download complete nutrition guides if you decide to order this program.

MI40X also includes a supplement guide.  His advice is solid, but you may want to shop around and see if there are less expensive brands than the ones he recommends.

Training Videos

MI40XReviewChestTraining215Another advantage to this program is the video content. You’ll be able to download a complete library of videos and see how Ben instructs his trainees. These files are high quality so they will take a while to download. But it is well worth your time. Watching Ben’s training techniques in action is one of the best things about MI40x. It would cost a lot of money to hire him as your personal trainer, so this is the next best thing at a fraction of the cost. The videos are organized into body part training: one film, for example, is dedicated to back training. You’ll see exactly how to implement Pakulski’s training methods.


MI40X has been one of my all-time best sellers as far as bodybuilding programs go, and the low refund requests means most trainees were extremely satisfied with what they achieved by using this workout program.  I think Mass Intentions Extreme 2.0 is especially good for guys who have been lifting for a while and want to break plateaus in their size and strength.  Just remember that these workouts are intense and you’ll only see results if you put in the effort to both your training and nutrition.  Just CLICK HERE if you’d like to order this program or learn more.
