In addition to the muscle building nutritional guide you also have the option to have Ben Pakulski customise specific meal plans for you which is specific to your body fat percentage, body weight and fitness goals. MI40X comes with a no questions asked money back guarantee, which means that Ben Pakulski guarantees that you will see results with the MI40 Xtreme 2.0 muscle building program.
Time consuming to learn new concepts
The biggest drawback of the program is that you have quite a bit of information to go through and principles to understand (e.g how to apply the CEP protocol) before you start with the program. However in life nothing comes from nothing and you cannot expect a different result if you keep on doing the same thing you did yesterday.
Time consuming to customise meal plans
It will take you quite some time to customise your meal plans for the MI40X muscle building program, unless you take the shortcut and ask Ben Pakulski to customise meal plans for you. Even if you take the shortcut and ask Ben to customise the meal plans for you, it will still be very time consuming to prepare the meals and to stick to the bodybuilding diet.
Bodybuilding meal plans are expensive
You did not for one moment think that you are going to pack on slabs of lean muscle without eating like a bodybuilder or fitness model, right? If you do not have the necessary building blocks in the form of nutrition to build your dream body, then all that time you spend in the gym will pretty much be in vain. The MI40X meal plans are expensive to follow, and to be honest, not everyone is able to afford to eat the way Ben recommends.
We personally recommend that you simply do the best you can. If you cannot afford to eat as recommended, then you simply can’t. Try your best to stick as closely as you can to the meal plans, as much as your finances will allow. This is however not a drawback specific to MI40X, but will be the case with any bodybuilding diet you choose to follow.
Hard work and dedication
The MI40 CEP Training Program is not for the faint hearted and is a very intense muscle building program that requires hard work and dedication. Although the muscle building program comes with a beginner, intermediate and advanced workout plan, one should not be deceived by the beginner workout plans. Even the beginner workout plans are quite challenging. I am sure however that you realised from the start that building your dream body will require hard work and dedication and therefore this should not come as a surprise. Even if in the beginning you are not able to cope with the beginner workout plan, that is no problem. Simply try to follow the program as closely as you possibly can and as you progress you will soon be able to follow the MI40X workout program exactly as intended.
Does MI40 Xtreme 2.0 deserve a (5 / 5) rating?
This will always be subjective to a personal opinion. We could have easily reasoned that due to the muscle building program being more complex in the sense of having to understand how to apply the CEP principles, that the muscle building program is not as user friendly as it could be and therefore do not deserve a 5 star rating. However, as everything in the program is laid out plainly and logically and comes complete with video instruction and also based on the effectiveness of the program, we decided that a 5 star rating in our opinion is indeed justifiable. Further to this, the no questions money back guarantee also played a role in justifying a 5 star rating for MI40 Xtreme 2.0.
The MI40 Xtreme 2.0 seems really impressive. I wish I had a program like that when I was 20 and went to gym 6 times a week because my trainings would have been more efficient for sure. That time I didn’t know whether I was overtrained or not and I only followed some advice found in Muscle&Fitness magazine 🙂 I never managed to increase my muscle mass on the top part of my body. It’s not visible, I look evenly balanced but I have weak arms, can’t lift myself up while hanging on a horizontal bar and push-ups are a horror for me.
I would like to start with regular workouts in the gym but after all that years I think I would be like a beginner. Do you think this program is suitable for girls and beginners, too? Would it not be too hard for me?
Hi, Lenka. You will be surprised to see how many women are actually following the MI40X muscle building program and putting a lot of men in the gym to shame. The MI40X muscle building program was created by Ben Pakulski, a competitive IFBB bodybuilder and one of the top bodybuilders in the world, with his best achievement of 2nd place in the Arnold Classic. You will also be surprised to see the results of individuals in their 60’s+ that follows the MI40X muscle building program.
There are two groups of people I would say that are utilising the MI40X muscle building program. The muscle building program is followed by competitive bodybuilders but also by the average Joe like you and me that are simply looking to get amazing results in the gym.
In regards to whether the MI40X muscle building program will be too hard for you to follow? Do not make a mistake. This muscle building program will make you realise that up until now you have been twiddling your thumbs in the gym and it will make you realise of what limits you are actually able to push your body to, hence the reason you will get awesome results within a short period of time when following this muscle building program as closely as you possibly can.
There are 3 different sets of workouts that you can choose from. 1. Beginner 2. Intermediate 3. Advanced When purchasing the MI40X muscle building program you will have access to the beginner, intermediate and advanced workout sheets. So my recommendation for you would be to start out with the beginner workout sheets. Do not be fooled. The beginner is already very demanding. However as is the case with any workout program you will make progress eventually as you become stronger and fitter. So it does not matter in the beginning if you cannot manage to follow the program to a T. The key is to follow the program as closely as you possibly can and to push yourself to your limits and you will still get great results, even if you are unable to follow the program to a T in the very beginning. Also remember that you are not measuring yourself against anyone else. You set the weights that you are able to cope with, but do make sure to push your limits though. There is no point to play around in the gym if you are looking for results.
I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you have any other MI40X related questions. Happy to help!
