A review of Jasson Ferruggia’s Muscle Gaining Secrets.
I’ve had the privilege of evaluating Ferruggia’s bodybuilding program. Before I give you my review, I’ll tell you upfront that I make commission on the sale of this program. But I only promote products I believe in. Here’s the standard I use: if I would recommend it to a friend or family member, I’ll recommend it to my readers. There are a lot of affiliate offers I turn down because they are scams and rip-offs. Now, on to my review . . .
About the author:
Jason Ferruggia is a highly sought after, world-renowned strength & conditioning specialist. Over the last 15 years he has personally trained more than 700 athletes from over 90 different NCAA, NFL, NHL and MLB organizations. He has also worked extensively with firefighters, police officers, military personnel, Hollywood stars and entertainers.
Now, let’s take a look of some of the program’s components:
Muscle Gaining Secrets: This ebook is the central component of the program. Ferruggia tells his own story of being a skinny kid (147 lb) even after spending years in the gym. The problem, he explains, was in his training—he was trying to imitate the training methods of professional bodybuilders (splitting his routine into six days a week, etc). He learned these methods just don’t work for genetically average, natural lifters.
Jason Ferruggia goes on to explain the Seven Critical Factors involved in designing a training program:
*Number of Reps Used
*Training Session Length
*Training Session Frequency
Much of the ebook’s content is focused on explaining these seven factors and how to set up a program for maximum muscle gains. Ferruggia also discusses the different muscle groups and how to best train them (legs, back, etc). As a guy who has learned much through trial and error (20 years of it), I can tell you this program makes a lot of sense. This 147 page ebook is probably the best I’ve read in terms of helping you set up your training and nutrition. He covers all the basic questions a new trainee would have.
Printable Workout Sheets: You can track your training progress and keep track of your workouts.
30 Days of Online Coaching: You’ll be given a free one-month membership to Ferruggia’s private online coaching group.
I really only found two things I disagree with:
First, Ferruggia doesn’t believe in the efficacy of Yohimbine HCL. I do think Yohimbine can help if the proper dosage and timing is implemented.
The second disagreement involves meal frequency. Ferruggia encourages trainees to eat six meals a day—every three hours. This is a controversial topic, but I’m not 100% convinced meal frequency is all that important. Having said that, I think most trainees will do much better eating at least four times a day. In other words, our advice would end up being similar: I would encourage trainees to try to eat 4-5 times a day but not fret too much over it (as long as you are getting enough protein and calories).
One final thing–Ferruggia recommends a specific brand of supplements. I’m sure the brand he endorses is good, but be sure to shop around. I just don’t think it makes that much difference as long as you stick to the basics and use reputable brands.
Muscle Gaining Secrets is an excellent program and I think it is well worth the money. I really wish something like this had been available when I first started training. I would have wasted a lot less money on supplements and also wasted less time on inferior methods. I think this would be especially helpful for beginners or “hardgainers” (you can see I mention some other programs below for more advanced trainees).
If my review has helped you, please use my links to purchase this program. I only endorse programs I believe in and you’ll be supporting an honest voice in the fitness industry. Just CLICK HERE if you are interested in buying the program.
NOTE: If you are an intermediate/advanced trainee I’d recommend trying one of Ferruggia’s other programs, like Minimalist Training. This program is designed for those who have been lifting for a while and/or already put on some muscle.
