Pros/Cons of Body for Life Program
Thinking of starting it up. Has anyone gone through this 12-week program before?
Were you pleased with weight loss and lifestyle change results?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

What you plan on doing after that?

That's the biggest con. Folks do these 10-12 weeks programs and as the end nears they feel they've accomplished "the goal" and revert immediately back to their old tendencies.

But excercise is always good. Just have a long term plan because 12 weeks isn't going to create a "Body for Life"

That’s why LP’s are the best for longevity in my opinion. You won’t ever finish the program.

Linear progression. You add small increments of weight each time you lift. You have an AMRAP set where you must comolete a number of reps, like 5 or 10 or whatever. If you hit the numbers, you add a little weight. If not, you knock off some weight and keep working. It’s a way to slowly build strength and gains over a long period of time instead of hammering out a 12 week program then you’re done.

So basically a program like StrongLifts, Madcow 5x5, etc?

Strong lifts yes, but not a good one. madcow no. Madcow is actually a for of dual factor using weekly progression to overreach, reset and start again.

The two best Linear progression programs are candito and greyskull.

Anybody looking at body for life should look at and read my greyskull thread.

I will be updating it soon btw with more templates. Oh and spoke to Johnny yesterday, he will be having a new forum soon.

My goal is to use the BFL program as a guideline moving forward. By following it for 12-weeks, I'm hopefully developing good habits that will carry over after the official program has concluded.

If nothing else it's a good jumping off point for a future of healthier living.
