How Normal Guys with Average Genetics Are Getting Jacked in Just 12 Weeks

…without working out more than 3X per week or following a tedious diet



Is it really possible for normal guys to transform
their bodies in as little as 12 weeks?

Believe it or not, the answer is YES.

You can achieve your dream body by working out LESS and eating things like burgers and ice cream every single day.

Sounds crazy, right?

Well, before you dismiss me as another sleazy fitness “guru”, let me tell you my story…


My name is David de las Morenas. I’m a certified strength coach and bestselling men’s health author.

But that’s all just fluff. The truth is I’m just like you.

A normal dude with average genetics.

I don’t consider myself a fitness “expert” or anything like that…

Honestly, the only thing I consider myself an expert in is helping normal bros navigate past all the BS and transform their bodies (without using steroids).

That’s why I created the How to Beast blog and YouTube channel (which over 200,000 guys visit every month).

When I got started, I just wanted to get a little bigger so I could impress this girl I had crush on.

So I dove into fitness head first…

I tried nearly every routine I could find on websites like T-Nation and…

Then reality struck.

I was copying the routines of a bunch of bodybuilders who were clearly using steroids…

I also tried all the latest diet crazes, from Paleo and Slow Carb to old-school bodybuilding “clean” eating like chicken and rice 6 times per day.

But they all left me starving and stopped me from hanging out and eating tasty dinners with my bros.

Every week or two I would try a new program, but I never saw enough results to stick with it.

Here’s what I looked like after 3 years of program-hopping:

Sure, I built a little muscle, but I was still scrawny as fuck.

I knew I had to be doing something wrong.

If You Try and Copy Juiced-Up Bodybuilders,
You Will Waste YEARS of Your Life

If you want to get jacked fast, the logical thing is to copy what bodybuilders and fitness models are doing, right?

Not so fast.

The workouts that bodybuilders follow to pack on muscle are not effective for normal dudes.

They’re designed for guys who are pumping anabolic steroids into their bodies and working out 6-7x per week.

That’s why you see these guys talking about “gaining 30 pounds of muscle in one month” and you can’t even gain a single pound using the exact same routine…

Not to mention, these guys do this for a living. They literally do nothing besides working out and dieting.

And just because they get huge, doesn’t mean they stay that way. Once they get off the steroids, they often lose most of their gains (and sometimes their balls shrivel up and they lose their sex-drive, too).

The “Secret” to Packing on Muscle that
Bodybuilders & Supplement Companies
Don’t Want You to Know About

Getting jacked and pulling off a dope transformation is not as hard as people would have you believe.

After years of frustration I decided it was time to do my own research. I studied countless exercise science journals to see what approaches have actually been PROVEN to work for natural lifters.

Hell, I even got certified as personal trainer and strength coach (and began to train everyone from college athletes to middle age dudes as a side job).

I tested these “new” methods on myself as well.

Did they work? You be the judge:

This is the same system that allowed me to break through my strength plateaus and finally bench 225, squat 315, and deadlift 405 for multiple reps:

Over the years since then, I’ve continued to tweak and improve this system so that literally any guy can use it to pull off their own transformation without dedicating their life to the gym or juicing on steroids.

Here are just SOME of the results you can expect:

  • Pack on HEAD-TURNING mass in just 3 workouts per week
  • Eat MASSIVE 2000-calorie meals every single day without gaining fat
  • Trash the treadmill: shred fat without a SINGLE minute of cardio
  • SMASH strength plateaus without getting fat like a powerlifter
  • Build a HUGE chest and arms (without juicing on steroids)
  • Devour hamburgers, ice cream, and pizza & still make progress

Look man, I’m not saying my program is “magic” or any BS like that.

All I did was remove the gimmicks and fluff you find in most “bodybuilding” programs.

I cut out the BS and give you only the essential steps that are proven to work for natural lifters like you and me.

If you’ve struggled to stay consistent and see results in the past, then this will be a game changer for you.
