It's a good program for laying out the basics of nutrition--from learning about your macronutrient needs to the importance of calories.Cons
The science is convincing, but not accurate, especially surrounding the assertion that body types gain muscle differently.Verdict
It's a good nutrition program for beginners interested in bodybuilding.
Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer (by Kyle Leon) - REVIEW
So what could be the problem? Some may just blame their genetics--perhaps some of us just can't genetically get muscular. Others may blame not working out hard enough. Others may be lost in the dark.
Bodybuilder Kyle Leon also says he was in this position years ago, when he first began bodybuilding. Extremely skinny and soft, he lifted weights and took multiple supplements in hopes of getting big, but he still looked the same after months of hard work.
But then he met a famous fitness model, who divulged his secrets to get ripped: Nutrition.
It wasn't just any nutrition technique, though. It was a specific technique tailored to his body type--also called somatotype--that involved varying his macronutrients and calories to enhance his muscular potential.
Leon was sold on the idea, and years later developed his own muscle maximizing program, called Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer.
What is Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer?
Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer is a nutrition and weight training program designed to help people of all body types get muscular, based on the theory that different body types, or somatotypes, develop muscularity differently. Training harder isn't always better here, but training right is.
The program is split into two parts--nutrition and weight training. Nutrition is the most important part of this program; Leon believes nutrition is crucial for getting more muscle, so therefore he puts most of his focus on what you should (or shouldn't). Leon personally determines your optimal diet with software that calculates your macronutrient and calorie needs based on your gender, height, weight, age, goal, body type, and how much you workout every week. Once you tell the software this data, it automatically generates a personalized meal plan--from how many calories to eat to the specific foods you should eat.
The weight training portion of the program also determines your optimal training routine using the same data--your gender, height, weight, age, goal, and body type. Once this data is entered, the program generates a training program instructing you on the types of exercises to do, how many sets and repetitions to do, and how long to rest between sets.
That's pretty convenient.
As an added bonus, you'll receive five extra freebies with purchase of the program--including an eBook on food fat killers, training logs, and a supplementation guide.
Issues with Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer
While the evidence seems compelling, it's important to remember that compelling evidence doesn't mean the evidence is true. This is the case with this program. For example, there is no evidence showing that the development of muscle is dependent on a person's body type. What actually determines this is a person's genetics, eating habits, calories, and training routine. It's even been debated that somatotypes don't even exist--a fact that Leon doesn't directly address.
This isn't to say that this program won't work, however. Macronutrients and calories are very important when it comes to developing muscle, and Leon lays the foundation for learning what your appropriate needs are.
As a nutrition guide, Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer is excellent. It's just that some of its "science" really isn't science at all.
What Customers are Saying
So what are customers saying about this program? The comments are mixed at best:
"I've gone from 197.6lbs to 202.3lbs. I don't have my body fat % statistics but I would say every bit of that weight is fat. I feel horrible. I'm tired. My number of reps have gone down. I'm more exhausted at the end of my workout than I've ever been. Worst of all I look soft and puffy and bloated. This is obviously not the look I was hoping for."
"In 30 days I have seen my BF% drop by about 1% and to 17.5 and my weight has gone up by about 2.5 kgs so like 5 lbs. Not bad for 30 days."
Here's the thing with Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer--it's not a bad program. However, the biggest issue is the science surrounding this program, that somehow your body type determines how you develop muscle. That's just not true. But ignoring this issue, this program is a decent nutrition program that can help beginners learn the important of eating right. And that is very important for building muscle.
