Review of Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer By Ted Landry of CriticalBench.com
Kyle Leon's story is interesting because so many guys can relate to his experience. Growing up, he was a true 'hardgainer,' completely unable to gain muscle no matter what he did. He was so skinny that everyone called him "Lanky Leo." Today though, all that's changed and he's a lean, muscular trainer, fitness professional and noted author. His latest work is entitled the Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer. Though it is accompanied by a great workout guide, the primary focus of Leo's efforts here tackle nutrition, arguably the most important and most often misunderstood component of the muscle building process.
A very high degree of customization is the key element that sets the SMM program apart from all the rest. This is an important distinction that is worth further discussion. No two metabolic systems are exactly alike, with each having its own requirements. Because of this uniqueness, each system will react differently to a particular nutritional or muscle building program. A program that works really great in one guy may be mostly ineffective with another because his body type and metabolism are different from the first man.
In contrast to the 'cookie-cutter' programs that assume all metabolic systems will react equally, SMM offers a program that can readily be customized to meet the unique needs of each individual. Kyle's program allows each user to customize his nutrition approach according to his age, weight, height, metabolism, weight training regimen and somatotype.
Somatotype refers to body type. The concept was developed back in the 1940s by a guy named William Herbert Sheldon. He developed a system to classify body types on a varying scale. The three 'extreme' body types include the endomorph (round and fat type), the ectomorph (skinny, linear type) and the endomorph (muscular type).
Using this system each individual has a three-digit somatotype number. The first number refers to the level of endomorphy, the second to mesomorphy, and the third to ectomorphy. Numbers are based on a scale of 1 to 7. For example, the extreme endomorph would have the somatotype 711, the extreme mesomorph 171, and the extreme ectomorph 117. This provides the basis for customizing the SMM approach.
There's more to it than that though, because SMM includes four patented formulas. Because they are patented, the formulas are protected and cannot be used by anyone else. Kyle spent years developing and testing these formulas, working with nutritionists and fitness experts to get them just right.
Those of us who are mathematically challenged need not worry because Kyle has developed a simple to use software program that incorporates the formulas into the programming design. The software is included as part of the SMM program and is a customized spreadsheet—the Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer. The software looks a bit overwhelming and complicated when you first open it so I would suggest that you read the quick-start guide first. Here, Kyle lays out everything you need to know to use the software program.
Once you get the hang of it, the program is really amazing. It allows you to develop a highly personalized meal plan that is unique to you and only you. I've never seen anything quite like it. The software, combined with the accompanying Somanabolic Weight Training guide, allows any guy—regardless of body type—to pack on pure, lean mass without adding unwanted body fat, which is what happens when using 'old-school' techniques such as bulking and cutting.
The problem with bulking and cutting is that during the bulking phase you add extra lays of body fat. You lose the fat during the cutting phase but you also lose a good portion of the muscle you were working so hard to gain in the first place. Also, bulking creates more fat cells and enlarges the ones you already have. When you switch to a cutting cycle, the fat cells don't go away. Therefore, even after the cutting phase, these fat cells are just hanging around like thirsty sponges waiting for just about anything to pass by that they can turn into fat again. This leaves you highly susceptible to rapid fat gain.
The Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer program allows you to bypass all of those difficulties by providing the tools you need to develop a nutrition and weight training approach that is specific to your particular body type and metabolic needs. With SMM, Kyle is essentially providing access to a highly qualified fitness nutritionist, without the high cost and hassle. Kyle has developed a real winner in SMM and I'm happy to recommend it anyone who is tired of all the one-size-fits-all programs on the market today.
