In high school, Kyle Leon, creator of Muscle Maximizer, was known as “Lanky Leo” because of his tall, thin body. Wanting to become a muscle-bound bodybuilder and leave that nickname far behind, Leon began to research techniques for building lean muscle quickly and effectively. The result was Muscle Maximizer, a customizable software program that tells you exactly what to eat, when to eat it, and what type of exercises to do to get the body you’ve always dreamed of—no matter what your starting point. Read on to learn more about the history of Muscle Maximizer and the creation of this revolutionary product.
Leon’s Humble Beginnings
In a quest to leave his skinny physique in the past when he started high school, Leon began trying every supplement on the market in hopes of getting the body he always wanted. In addition to the laundry list of products that promised to build muscle, he also tried every new workout fad that came down the pike. But despite all this hard work—nothing changed. Leon had nothing to show for his hours in the gym and all the money he spent on supplements. No matter how much he exercised, his physique didn’t change at all. He assumed genetics was to blame for his inability to bulk up.
A Turning Point
During his second year of college in Charleston, South Carolina, Leon met a well-known fitness model and asked him about his secrets. He was shocked to learn that the model used no supplements to get his showman’s physique—instead, he claimed that the key to building lean muscle was all in the food he ate. The fitness model hooked Leon up with his nutritionist, and the rest is history. In just a few short weeks of changing his diet, he began to build muscle—and vowed to share these secrets with the world.
The Importance of Diet
Leon began to build Muscle Maximizer based on a simple premise—the food you eat is just as important as the workout you do, if not more. Why is this the case? If you spend five nights a week at the gym, that’s still only three percent of the week taken up by workouts. The other 97 percent of the time, your muscles are building and recovering from the stress you put them through during your bodybuilding routine. And the key to maximizing this process? Your diet. Though it’s great to eat a healthy diet, that won’t necessarily guarantee that you’ll build muscle. Instead, focusing on specific nutrients based on your body type will speed up the process of developing the lean muscle you’ve been aiming for.
The Genesis of Muscle Maximizer
In developing this software program, Leon recognized that the reason other programs never worked for him is because they weren’t customized for his specific body type. With Muscle Maximizer, you enter key statistics about yourself—age, gender, height, weight, and other pertinent information—and end up with a diet and workout plan made just for you. No other program can boast a personalized approach for every user—and the one-size-fits-all formula of most bodybuilding programs just doesn’t work for everyone.
The Science Behind the Program
In his research, Leon learned that there are two anabolic windows during the day in which 84 percent of your muscle growth occurs. By eating the right foods at the right time, you can literally ensure that you’re doing everything possible to maximize the development of lean muscle and get a body that girls notice. Since other programs tend to ignore the anabolic window, they simply won’t provide the same results as Muscle Maximizer. What’s more, the program is exact, which makes it easy to follow and fool-proof. It tells you exactly how many calories to eat and what kind. Another innovation that Leon build into the program is that as your body changes, your plan adapts to fit your new physique, helping you maintain the body you’ve worked so hard to create.
Ignoring Traditional Wisdom
Perhaps the biggest innovation of the Muscle Maximizer program is that it flies in the face of traditional wisdom about bodybuilding. Most programs advocate the “bulk then cut” policy—meaning you eat lots of calories, and then, once you have increased your body weight, work on turning all that extra flesh into muscle. The problem with that is that once you develop fat cells, they don’t go away simply by lifting weights, so you end up with muscles on top of an unhealthy layer of fat. By building lean muscle right from the start, you end up with a much healthier physique that is easy to maintain with the proper nutrition and exercise.
The Legacy of Leon’s Research
After years of research and development for the Muscle Maximizer product, it’s now available for purchase by the general public. The program costs $47—a fraction of the cost of your gym membership—and is fully refundable within 60 days if you’re not fully satisfied. If you’re serious about bodybuilding, give Muscle Maximizer a try.
