How are your workouts going in terms of getting you results?
If you've tried other workouts and are still looking for a solution, True Gains is an unorthodox yet evidence-based system to get you bigger, leaner, and healthier all at the same time.
Learn how to "break the rules" to build muscle and get leaner at the same time—even if:
Presenting True Gains:
The only systemic program to build muscle and burn fat, that we know of, that goes well beyond a lifting and nutrition program.
It reveals the hidden factors proven to build muscle and burn fat, that many fitness professionals are unknowingly doing (that you aren't.) Should you put these into action, it will allow you to finally build a muscular, manly body with a six-pack.
We asked the guys on our Outlive newsletter what the biggest issue they were struggling with was.
Here's what we saw:
We got dozens of messages like these.
Nobody likes it when you try to build muscle and you just end up packing on the pounds all at the gut. Especially when you were aiming to eventually get a six-pack.
To make things worse, we've all seen the countless transformations of guys getting incredible results from online programs.
But when you try—it doesn't work. Why not?
There are hidden factors that are missing from your life that are plateauing your results and making you fatter instead of stronger.
These factors aren't just preventing you from reaching your optimally strong, lean, and healthy body. They're also eroding your health and aging you more quickly through inflammation.
But you can fix it. And this is why we created the True Gains program.
True Gains is a cutting-edge, research-backed, and wholesomely healthy program to get you bigger, leaner, and fitter—all at the same time. Many of the studies we cite were either published this year or in the last couple years. (And by our quick count, we reference over 126+ studies!)
This is a program for people who have tried putting in the hard work prescribed in other programs, but didn't get the results they wanted.
So, to be clear, this isn't a silver bullet or a pill you can swallow. We won't lie—it's going to be a lot of work.
But it'll be the right type of work. The specifics matter.
Some guys acheive a remarkable body is because they're naturally doing these things in their life without trying.
You'd never know it, and neither would they.
But now, with this program, we'll show you what you need to do, so that you too can begin reaping rapid and incredible results.
What will you learn with True Gains?
The main mistakes men make when they're either trying to:
- build muscle leanly (lean gains)
- build muscle and burn fat at the same time (body recomposition)
The one type of exercise you're not getting enough of (and it's not cardio).
It just so happens that this type of exercise also helps to melt stubborn belly-fat, and make you live a healthier and longer life.
The correct way for natural guys to lift to get rapid results.
Guys are often (unknowingly) following programs written by guys on (or previously on) performance-enhancing-drugs.
The right foods to eat and the right time to eat them.
You can naturally shift your body into a fat-burning and muscle-building machine, without even counting calories, just by learning about these factors that will change what your body does with the food you eat. (The technical term is to improve nutrient partitioning, we'll teach you everything you need to know.)
The biohackers' secret to simultaneously staying young while unlocking optimal muscle-building recovery, and fat-burning potential.
I have yet to see someone in the fitness industry talking about this problem affecting 90%+ (stat from a US national poll) of us, and how to fix it.

A 60-day two-phase complete exercise program
These printable workouts are designed to help you build muscle, burn fat, improve your fitness, and includes a daily type of exercise that can radically improve your health and melt stubborn belly fat.
The lifting program is designed to build a manly and attractive body. The work is weighted towards building:
- Thick, and athletic looking neck (no more weak looking pencil neck)
- A wide back and broad shoulders
- A developed upper and lower chest
- Visible abs and more athletic obliques
There's a bit of arm work too.
Once we show you how cardio fits into the big picture of attaining your goal, we'll also be developing your cardio foundation.
"Normal Mode" versus "Hard Mode"
In the program we include two versions of the workouts.
The normal mode is for someone who has a lot on their plate, and wants to ease into a workout to make it easier to form a habit.
The hard mode is for someone who sees a challenge as an opportunity to become stronger, smarter, or more competent.
It is for people who are autonomous and follow through, and are willing to put more work in and focus on recovery if it means faster results.
These workouts can be done either at home or at a gym. You might do best if you have a home-gym or you work close to a gym though, because working out more often (but shorter sessions) will help you get the best results (we'll teach you why in the program.)
You can do everything with just:
- Two adjustable dumbbells that are heavy enough to challenge you.
- An adjustable bench.
If you have access to a barbell—even better.
