Real Bodyweight Bodybuilding Review + My Results & Transformation

This is My No Bullshit BodyWeight BodyBuilding Review & My Results After 2 Months of Doing the Workouts

So, Bodyweight Training to Build Muscle?

Isn’t Bodyweight just for warming up and conditioning?

That’s what you might think about Bodyweight training, but I will tell you right now, Bodyweight Will Build Muscle, Get you Stronger & Help You Get Rid Of Pain!

It did so for me and Zach’s program was a BIG Help on knowing how to use Bodyweight to build muscle & strength (you can see my transformation pics below & why I liked the program and also what I didn’t below)

Here are my results after 2 months on the program:

Bodyweight Bodybuilding Review - I gained 5 Pounds of Muscle in 2 Months Before and After Pic

I went from a weak 135 pounds to a strong 145 pounds in those 2 months, 5 of those pounds were pure muscle

Like I explained in the video, I knew I was gonna make gains, but didn’t think they were gonna be this great!

But now let me take you back to when I first got and started the program:

Since I was able to do 100 push ups and about 10-15 pull ups, I thought this program was gonna be easy!

After all, I can do more whit my body weight than most people right?

Fuck I Was Wrong!

The Program will kick your ass and make you realize that you really are Not Bodyweight Strong!

Right of the bat, the first workout got me hooked on the program because it was different, and it made me feel energized and alive afterwards!

You can see my first workout here:

And you can compare it to the last one I did here:

You can see that I got bigger & that the workout was still tough!

And Yes the workout was different, but that is what I really enjoyed about the program, it’s fun, fresh & non-repetitive

But at the same time it is damn challenging & will take you out of your comfort zone as it will expose your weaknesses

At the same time that is a blessing since it forces you to work on getting better at your weaknesses since they are part of the program

For me the finishers always crushed me, all the sprints & running made me realize how much my conditioning sucks & how much work I need in those areas

At first I hated it, but I quickly evolved to doing the workouts that I am not good at and pushing trough them

I read that running and sprinting was involved and I thought OK this should be easy, but reality struck me and I saw how badly my conditioning was

Some people would just avoid this part of the program, but I pushed trough, I wanted to succeed and these conditioning was part of my transformation with this program

It pushed me out of my comfort zone & gave mental toughness, it made me to not be conformed with being average and always seek improvement

I had constant conversations telling me to slow down, or to take a break when I knew it was time to go all out

Things are different when it’s just your bodyweight, you can cheat and do half ass reps and sets, but your only cheating yourself from the success that you could have

I will tell you that if you are not willing to push trough your workouts because your lazy then This Program Is Not For You!

But if you are willing to not make any excuses and drop your ego so you can accept that you are weak in some areas so you can improve on them, then this workout program is for you!

It’s all bodyweight so it really calls for No Excuses since you can do the workouts anywhere and don’t need equipment (and if you do, you can get creative & substitute the exercises or use other things, like me: I used furniture sliders instead of doing ab wheel roll outs, it’s all about getting creative, not making excuses & just getting things done!)

Substitue for ab wheel roll outs - furiture sliders

There is also a 5×5 weights + bodyweight program in there that you can use in case you can’t leave the iron alone, so you still use the power of bodyweight to turn into a strong beast!

Aside for the fact that the workout got me bigger & stronger, the most important thing is that they helped me heal my nagging pain

I had developed pain & imbalances in my body from from driving, sitting too much and the constant stress of heavy lifting

By doing the bodyweight exercises I was able to work on getting my body back to balance

It rejuvenated my body, strengthened my joints & ligaments & made me feel even more energized!

Another thing is that I thought that not lifting weights was gonna make me weaker

But the opposite was what happened

I got stronger!

I did so because the exercises that I was doing were forcing me to engage and feel the right muscles, it forced em to activate and awaken dormant muscles that get turned off by creating imbalances trough bad lifting form and overall bad posture and habits

That to me was worth the whole time I spent doing this workouts

  • It made my body work as a unit & become balanced again
  • It improved my posture & strengthened my back & core big time!

2 key areas that one needs to have a solid foundation with in order to lift heavier weights!

So for this fact I highly recommend that you use body weight training in your workouts

Give it at least a solid 3 weeks to restore your body & bring it back to balance

You will come back stronger and feeling energized and pain free (or at least with least pain)

Now, I can’t guarantee that you will get results form this program because it really depends on the effort that you put into it, but I know for sure that if you follow the workouts & put intensity in them you will see a BIG improvement in your overall fitness level, strength & muscle size in 3 weeks

And if you give it  a full 3 months I know you will become  a bad mofo!

Go Here If You Wanna Become a Bad Mofo!

You don’t have to stop lifting weights with the program (although I personally recommend for at least 3 weeks) as you can just incorporate this bodyweight bodybuilding style workouts into your main workouts or a supplement to strengthen your weak areas

Here are my personal transformation after 8 weeks of using the program – don’t laugh at my faces 🙂

My Lats Got Bigger From Doing So Much Handstands & Pull Ups

I gained 5 pounds of muscle diring these 8 weeks (also put on some fat as well, but muscle building was my main goal)

I went from a weak 135 to a solid 145 in weight

I say 5 pounds since I know not everything I gained was muscle, but I could just feel myself getting stronger, muscles getting fuller & bigger

My shirts were getting tighter, my back was bigger and I felt stronger!, My grip improved by time and so did my conditioning

My Lats became Huge! from all the pull ups, inverted rows and handstands!

Bodyweight Bodybuilding Results - 5 Pounds of Muscle in 2 Months Without Lifting Weights Before and After

It definitely boosted my confidence to become bigger

Now these were my own results, Will you have similar results?

That really depends on where your starting from, but if you are starting skinny & weak then for sure you will make gains!

The program overall kicks ass to make you feel better

Getting rid of pain is liberating & I can’t really express how freeing this is

I had a messed up shoulder when starting the program & now my shoulder feel strong, healthy & mobile

It’s not 100% back to normal yet, but it is  way stronger than when I started (It used to hurt when I tried to scratch my back from the top, it was bad & every lifting I did was uncomfortable, even pull ups were a mess)

2 of the big exercises in the program that helped my shoulder tremendously were handstands and inverted rows!

Overall I am super glad I gave the program a shot as it restored my body & set my strength foundation for lifting weights again

And if you are worried about not being able to do some of the exercises like pull ups and handstands, don’t worry there are progressions that you can do

The actual program manuals:

The actual ebook is straight to the point, no fluff, just describing the structure of the workouts & why they are so effectiveBodyweight Bodybuilding Secrets Download

  • There is a 3 month program (I did phase 1 & 2) and a 4 week beginner course
  • There is also 2 interviews with 2 bodyweight beasts & man these interviews are full of gold!

The guys there shared how they train to get stronger and build muscle with just bodyweight, how they eat & how to keep making bodyweight more challenging so they are constantly getting bigger & stronger

You will get actionable knowledge on how to manipulate bodyweight training to make you stronger, build muscle, lose fat, or a combination of all 3

And not to mention that these interview are just damn inspiring and will make you have no excuses!

  • You also get videos on how to do the exercises & the warm up

Something that I would have liked to see is more nutrition info (it was short & straight to the point) but at the same time I liked it as it did not confuse you on how to eat

I also would have preferred the interviews to be in audio, but reading them pumped me up and inspired me big time to go kill it afterwards so they were great

So i can personally tell you that the program works IF you put the effort and dedication onto it!

It’s not magic but if you do the work it will improve your strength & help you get rid of pain

If you wanna get stronger get leaner, build muscle & feel fresh and energetic after your workouts then I strongly recommended you get BW BB

  • Great review Luis, I have just started Zach’s 4 week beginner program & it’s tougher than it looks. I’m hoping to get great benefit from it

  • Thanks Tony & Awesome! glad to hear your taking action! it’s tougher than it looks for sure, but if you stick with it you will feel amazing after just one month – a lot more mobile, strong & energetic! plus you can do it anywhere! feel free to ask any questions about the program, I’ll be glad to help you!

  • Hey Luis, awesome transformation! I’m seriously considering buying the program, I was just curious, is there direct flexibility training/stretching including? I’m pretty strong but my flexibility is garbage.


    May 22, 2014

  • Awesome Alex, the program is well worth it. There is 2 warm up videos inside the program which will prep up your body for the workouts & show various flexibility drills to make you a lot more mobile. But there isn’t any dedicated flexibility training (It’s only part of the warm up). But from my experience the workouts themselves will make you more mobile overtime & also improve your flexibility which is what you want, so although you are not too flexible right now, you will improve this a lot as you progress into the program from all the bodyweight training.

    Hope that helps man!

  • This looks very good! My question is this – my legs have always been small and weak. Will bodyweight only exercises help me build strength and mass in my legs?? Thanks!

    Joel Waters

  • Hey Joel, the simple answer is YESSS!

    Specially if you are weak on the lower body, bodyweight sets the foundation for strength & will also make you more mobile & agile.

    If you currently train with weights, bodyweight will improve every lift you do as you will strengthen your tendons & ligaments & of course increase muscle mass.

    Now I personally love heavy leg training (squats, lunges & deadlifts are stables) to truly develop strength & mass, but if your foundation is weak (i.e. have really bad range of motion or can’t squat deep enough) focusing on bodyweight exercises will help you an insane amount – it will make you lift heavier weight overtime.

    To increase strength & muscle mass all you gotta do is increase your workout intensity by doing slower reps, increasing range of motion, decreasing leverage, increasing time under tension or increasing the resistance. You can do all of these with bodyweight exercises (increasing the amount of reps you can do w/BW exercises is not the only way to make them harder & progress with them)

    So the answer is yes, hope that helps!
