From The Desk Of Mike Westerdal
President of CriticalBench.com
Would you like to build more muscle?
Would you like to build more muscle... quickly?
If so, you're in the right place.
Because I want to share with you a short story about how I was able to pack on 21 pounds of muscle... tighten up my abs... and get the body I've always wanted.
And I did it all in about 8 weeks time.
How did I do it?
Well, I'm going to introduce you to a completely new way to get ALL the muscle building secrets you'll EVER need to get results... and get them faster than you've ever dreamed possible.
But let me warn you.
If you're expecting some complex workout routines, bogus supplements, or some sort of program that has you spending hours in the gym... you're gonna be disappointed.
What I have to show you is extremely simple... but it works.
And a lot of what really worked for me is stuff you won't read about in the muscle magazines. And I bet it will work for you too...
I'm sharing my story because it's probably pretty similar to your own...
Because if you're anything like me.. you've probably been trying everything you can to build muscle, gain some size, and get stronger.
But I promise you... if you read to the end of this short story... I'll give you the solution I discovered and use to this very day to pack on solid muscle and stay in the best shape of my life.
By the way... it doesn't matter if you're young or old... beginner or experienced... I'm going to show you exactly how to get a muscular body that makes you feel confident and proud.
But first... just a little bit about my credentials... and why you can trust me to help you gain more muscle.
Who I Am And Why I Can Help You...
My name is Mike Westerdal. I'm a personal trainer and fitness expert here in Clearwater Florida. I'm also an amateur powerlifter, former Division I football player, and best-selling fitness author.
I'm a contributer to REPS! Magazine, Powerlifting USA, and many other top fitness publications.
You may have even visited one of my websites. In fact, Critical Bench is one of the Internet's first... and most popular... muscle building sites.
The page you're reading is all about a new and IMPROVED way to build more muscle, increase your strength, and get a body you're proud of... so you feel more attractive and confident.
Because if you're one of the people that spends some time each week working out.. . that's good...
But that's NOT ENOUGH!
Sooner or later, you're going to realize that following the herd and doing what everyone else is doing will get you the same results.... NONE!
I should know... I used to be one of the "blind following the blind."
I wasn't a naturally muscular guy. In fact I was pretty scrawny for years.
I never wanted to take my shirt off at the beach or hang out for very long at the pool.
So... like many people do... I tried anything and everything to gain muscle and get in shape. In fact, I've probably tried every single workout routine and muscle building supplement known to man.
But my early attempts to gain muscle were a disaster.
I fell for a lot of hype and spent hundreds of dollars on the popular "overpriced" supplements you've probably seen in the magazines.
It was one disappointment after another because all these different approaches didn't work. I was wasting a ton of money and spending hours in the gym... with pretty much NO muscle to show for it.
It was frustrating, to say the least.
I Knew There Had To Be A Better Way
I just knew that what I needed to know to finally get results could be learned.
In fact, that's the single biggest reason I was finally able to build a world-class body that I was extremely proud of.
I knew you can always BE more, have more, and do more... because you can always LEARN MORE.
When you learn better, you can do better ... when you DO better, you GET better results.
So I started reading every single muscle magazine I could find.
And it didn't take long for me to realize the muscle mags on the store shelves are nothing but supplement catalogs.
I used to pick up these popular magazines and be amazed at how LITTLE training information was actually in them.
I mean... there were hundreds and hundreds of pages of supplement ads... but little to no training information.
It's NOT Your Fault... The Bodybuilding Magazines And
Supplement Companies Are LYING To YOU!
I also learned that trying to build muscle by copying a "pro workout routine" from one of the popular muscle mags wasn't going to work for me either.
The routines you see in the muscle magazines are written for bodybuilders who use steroids to get those physiques.
These pro workout routines work for them because of the large amounts of drugs they take.
Since they use steroids, they can train for hours a day and still see results.
You and I cannot train like that or we'd over train.
That's Why The Bodybuilding Magazines Are Cheating You
Out of The Results You Should Be Getting!
These bodybuilders in the muscle mags don't eat like us, don't train like us, and sure aren't natural like us.
So believe me... you definitely will NOT get the muscle mass you want by copying the "pro" guy's workout routine if he got big taking a ton of steroids.
You see why it can be confusing and frustrating to make gains? There's so much conflicting advice out there.
The information is bad information and years of this misinformation is why you look and feel the way you do.
How I Learned The Truth And Discovered
The Secrets That Changed My Body And My Life...
So instead of flipping through pages of magazines that had steroid-built physiques... I began studying all-natural bodybuilders, powerlifters, weightlifters, and athletes who already had the muscle mass I wanted too.
That way, I could find out what they were doing and just COPY it.
I found the most successful fitness experts online... those guys that were real masters at building muscle and getting results.
First... I bought each one of their books.
Then I found either the phone number for these guys... or their email addresses... and personally contacted each and every one of them.
I said something along the lines of "Hey, I just bought your ebook and now I have a few questions..."
The amazing thing was... each and every person was so nice and went out of their way to help me. I'm sure the fact that I was a paying customer helped.
I Was Able To Get the Lean,
Muscular Body I've Always Wanted...
More importantly, I started using their techniques in my own training... putting each and every tip I learned into practice.
Sure enough... things finally began to change and I started seeing some immediate results.
After about 2 weeks... the results blew my mind because I started noticing dramatic improvements in muscle gains... even when everything else had failed in the past!
And that's when I really knew why most people were out of shape or didn't have the muscle mass they wanted.
It wasn't their fault!
Why Most Guys Fail To Build
Muscle... And What To Do About It
Look... the only reason you still don't have the body you truly deserve... is because everything you've heard up till now is dead wrong.
And because of that... you hate what you see when you look at yourself in the mirror.
Or worse...you don't even look in mirrors anymore...
So you're back to square one... feeling depressed... and even further away than when you started!
After all... if those workout programs or supplements in the magazines actually worked... you'd already have that body of your dreams...
But they don't...and you don't have the lean, muscular physique you want.
That's why it's very important that you know it's not your fault you don't have the physique you want.
Why Just About Every Single Lifter Is Dead Wrong
In How They Train For Size, Strength And Power!
The information you've been getting is bad information. And because of that... you're not seeing results!
Like I mentioned earlier... the fitness and supplement industry is a billion dollar business. If you actually learned that you don't need their supplements to get results... they'd lose a ton of money.
So it's in their best interests to keep lying to you and keep you misinformed.
That's how they make their big money... by selling supplements that you keep taking and taking, month after month and year after year.
All the while, you're getting further away from your goals and they're laughing all the way to the bank.
It Should Make You Mad... Like It Did ME!
I'm sick and tired of seeing nice, regular people just like you... being lied to over and over again.
So you know something... the confusion finally ends right here, right now.
It's time for you to know that the training and nutrition techniques I used to get an amazing body are almost the exact opposite of what most muscle mag workouts have you doing.
I'm going to show you what you MUST do to finally gain the muscle you want... and get the body you truly deserve.... so you look and feel better... turn more heads... and have more confidence than ever.
It's the same simple, quick and safe way I gained 21 pounds of muscle in just 8 weeks.. And you'll do it without supplements, dangerous drugs, or spending hours in the gym.
For once, you'll have more energy and confidence. You'll be lean, toned, and strong. You'll look better and feel more attractive.
For the first time in a long time, you'll be completely happy with your body and how you look and feel about yourself. And you deserve it!
You really can create a stronger and more muscular YOU in just a few weeks!
How To Put On Solid, Rock-Hard
Muscle As Fast As Possible
Look, I've gone through a TON of trial and error... and wasted a lot of cash... discovering the truth about gaining muscle.
When all is said and done... I've probably spent more than $5,000 on supplements and muscle mags over the years!
And what did I get out of it? Just a lighter wallet.
But when I finally discovered the TRUTH about how your body actually puts on muscle...
When I started to skip the supplements and workout routines from the muscle mags... my results went through the roof!
And now... I want YOU to get the same results!
It's time for you to throw away the misinformation. This is about a new and improved way to change your life.
You're going to gain more muscle, reveal your abs, and get a lean, muscular, attractive body that helps you feel better than you ever have.
Your friends and family will be jealous of your new body!
Right now, I'm going to reveal the secrets you can use to sculpt your world-class body... faster and easier than you ever thought possible!
Finally... Get Advice From Guys Who Are Experts
At Building Muscle And Getting In Amazing Shape
Like I mentioned earlier.. if there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's this:
If you want to know exactly how to build muscle, gain strength, and get in amazing shape... just learn from those who are already doing it!
Meet others who are already achieving what it is you want and learn from them directly.
Learning from others is the single best way to learn that one little secret that helps you pack on muscle and make gains fast.
You can learn their secrets and copy exactly what they do so you can get similar results.
Learning From Experts Can
Be A Shortcut to Your Own Success
I spent a ton of time and money to find out exactly what they were doing for themselves... and for their clients... to get amazing results.
And the best part is, I've kept in contact and became very good friends with most of these guys.
Just about every one of them told me the same thing: "If you ever need anything from me... just let me know!"
Well, I thought long and hard about it and decided to take them up on their offer!
You see, as the owner of Critical Bench, I see it as my duty to try and speak the truth and pass along good information that helps my site visitors.
After all... wouldn't it be great to know what these experts are DOING to get results in less time?
And wouldn't it be great to hear them describe exactly how they're training, what they're eating, and what they're doing in detail?
By doing this... you'll see results far faster than if you try to do it all "on your own"
But True Muscle Building Experts
Aren't Always Easy To Find
As you probably know, it's not always easy to FIND guys who are true experts. And it's not always easy to make friends with them once you DO find them.
These guys have actual businesses and companies to run. They're busy changing peoples' lives and transforming their clients.
Or they spend their limited time in the gym... training and perfecting their own physiques.
Their time is extremely valuable, so it's tough to get them either on the phone... or in person.
And if you do manage to do either one... you're probably going to pay a lot of money.
I know most of these guys charge anywhere from $50 to $200 per hour of training time.
So How Can You Find And
Learn From These Experts Directly
What if I told you that I knew a way for you to learn from SEVERAL different muscle building experts each and every month... for the cost of a few songs on I-tunes.
You could use their advice to achieve a muscular, head-turning physique that makes you feel sexy, attractive, and confident.
I've learned so much from these guys personally... I've started interviewing them individually... getting them to share all their amazing training and nutrition secrets with you.
Not only that... I also recorded the interviews with them so you could listen to them any time you wanted! Plus I had each and
every interview transcribed into a pdf document so you can refer to it anytime. This will save you even more time so you don't
have to take notes while you listen!
And here's the best part: you can get the first 5 interviews right now for just a BUCK!
Now you can hear guys who are true masters at building the lean, muscular body like you want... and you can learn exactly how they do it!
These are guys who have the physiques that turn heads, command respect, and get attention.
You can listen to me pick their brains and learn all their secrets.. right from the comfort of your home!
Their advice will teach you exactly how to get the strong, powerful, muscular body you want. Getting a head-turning, muscular physique is going to make you feel so much more proud and confident!
It's taken me YEARS to make friends with a group of guys who are arguably the BEST in the world when it comes to muscle building, powerlifting, strength training... and building muscular physiques.
So, when the chance came up to get some of these guys on the phone with me and record some of their most precious secrets for packing on muscle mass... I knew it was a no-brainer.
I wanted to know what they do, how they train, what they eat... and how they think.
I've recorded so many interviews with amazing muscle building experts, that there's far too much to list here - but let me just give you a SAMPLE of what you'll get in just the first 5 interviews.
And once again... you can get started for just $1

Get Inside the Heads Of These Experts and Learn Their Strategies and Techniques From Them Every Week
Like I mentioned... I'm going to send you these first 5 interviews for just a dollar.
And I'll follow up each month with ANOTHER killer interview that's chock full of valuable and powerful secrets, from some of the best masters at muscle building.
We're talking guys who charge hundreds of dollars for just a few hours of their time.

If You Learn The Simple Secrets I'm About To
You'll Gain More Muscle in Less Time
In fact, since I've started doing these interviews, I've actually learned some things that I had never heard before. And some of these guys I've known for years.
I always learn something great... and it's always something that's extremely useable and can be done right away to start getting results.
I told you this was unlike any other muscle building site out there... and I meant it!
You simply pay the small monthly fee and you just keep learning the secrets from these guys.
Then you take action and use it in the gym... and reap the amazing results.
Now you'll have more time to enjoy your life... spending more time with your friends, family, or loved ones.
You can skip all the time you normally would spend on reading magazines or new routines.
You'll save a lot of money from using the muscle building training and nutrition tips you'll learn. No more spending $100 or more each month on worthless supplements.
Gain Muscle And Get The Kind
Of Body You've Dreamed About
Again, if you wanted to spend the time or money learning all this stuff on your own... you'd have to spend thousands on nutritionists and personal trainers.
I personally spent more than $5,000 over the years on wasted info-mercial workout machines... on worthless supplements, on bogus magazines and routines.
I also spent a ton of money tracking these experts down, buying their ebooks, and paying for their training time. But that was worth it!
Do you know how much a trainer costs? Some of the trainers in smaller cities charge $50.00 for one session.
At just three sessions per week... that's almost $10,000 per year!
Thankfully... You Don't Have To Pay That!
Now you can skip paying the $50 per hour for a personal trainer. Save your money on the worthless workout routines, diet programs, or supplements.
Stop searching for the next big gimmick or fad... because you'll go broke trying them all. And none of them will produce results.
It's time to get a rock hard muscular physique in a lot less time. It's time you start living a longer, healthier life.
It's time you start to feel proud and confident when you take your shirt off and walk on the beach. It's time you start turning heads and getting noticed!
I Guarantee You'll Reach Your Full Potential For Gaining Muscle And Strength... In Just A Few Short Months!
You can begin to imagine how amazing you'll look and feel... how great you'll feel when others compliment you.
You'll feel more confident and comfortable in your muscular new physique.
Picture your new and improved love life... or your social life. Think how your significant other will feel when looking at your lean, muscular body.
Today I'm a different person... I'm a lean, muscular 225 pounds.
I have 19 inch arms, a v-shaped back, nice round shoulders, thick, muscular calves, and biceps that pop out from under my shirt sleeves.
I'm more confident than ever when I go out with my friends.
When we all go out to a club... I'm usually the only one that gets attention from the ladies.
So take it from me personally... I guarantee you'll get a lot more attention from the ladies when you're in great shape.
Easily Get Twice The Progress...
While Spending Half The Time In The Gym!
And best of all, you don't need hours and hours of workouts to get as muscular as you want!
You'll start getting amazing gains in half the time you're spending in the gym now. Believe me, I did!
This is literally the only site you'll ever need to achieve the confident, attractive, muscular body you want to see staring back at you from the mirror...
If you think about that in terms of getting the body you want in 8 weeks, this comes out to about 30 cents per day!
Seriously... who wouldn't spend a little more than a quarter to get some of the most respected and knowledgeable trainers to spill their secrets?
Think about it: No more wearing clothes that just hide your body. Picture how wonderful it will feel!
Here's How It All Works...
Every single week... you'll get live audio (mp3) and written (pdf) interviews with experts who are VERY experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to training and eating to build muscle, gain strength, and lose body fat.
And you can learn all their secrets... for just a tiny fraction of what their clients pay.
Use them to finally start seeing results from your workouts. You can finally start to see some muscle mass on your body.
Don't Pay Now... Try it First and THEN Decide
And here's another thing... maybe you're not sure if these interviews will help you add the lean muscle mass you want.
That's why I decided to let you "Try it first and decide later". I put together a simple and easy 14-day Trial for you.
Like I said, you can get started for just a dollar. All 5 interviews are yours for a buck.
Begin using some of the secrets and techniques you'll learn... really go through the interviews and tell me they're not worth the small investment.
After that 14 day trial period.... all you have to pay is $9.99 a month to keep them coming each week. That's it!
For the price of a pizza each month... you'll get muscle building secrets that will help you SO MUCH MORE than a pizza will.
What's more important for you and your body:
Having a ten dollar bill in your pocket... or hearing that one little piece of advice that helps you pack on more muscle than anything else you've tried?
But here's the thing... you're not going to get just one piece of advice... you're going to get hundreds of tips and techniques... but still only pay $9.99
All it takes is that one little secret... that one little piece of advice... to give you that lightbulb moment in which you say "ah ha"... that's why I haven't been getting results.
And again, you're going to be getting many of these secrets... so you're going to have many chances to have those "ah ha" moments.
Those moments that will speed up your results from the time you spend in the gym. They'll help you more than anything else you can do.
Hey, if you think a pizza can do all that for you, then you're better off spending your money on that.
Again... you get 5 of these mp3 and pdf interviews for just $1.
Then it will be 9.99 per month for the interviews you get every week and you can cancel anytime you want.
That's the cost of a music CD... or a movie DVD. Are those going to help you build muscle or get more results from the time you spend in the gym?
Right, they won't? But these interviews will... or you're not going to pay anything!
And if you subscribe right now online, remember I'm going to send you those first 5 interviews that I mentioned above.. for just one buck!
