“This journey started back in Feb of 2010, when I was chosen to be a part of the guinea pig program, which eventually became Showand Go. I started out weighing in at 264 and I was pretty strong, too. After the four months of doing the Show and Go program I was weighing 228 and still had about the same strength. But that wasn’t enough for me. I wanted more, so I decided to just keep doing the program and see where it would take me. When I first started I picked the 4 day-a-week one. After the program ended I took a week off and then began the 3 day-a-week one. A year and a half later, here I am.
“I am still finding time to do the program even though I’m busy coaching high school football and being a PE teacher. I now weigh 185 lbs. My strength levels are still pretty good and I feel better than I have ever before. I have done many programs and I have done two of Eric’s. He knows what he is talking about and I’m sold on whatever he recommends. Thank you, Eric, for all your hard work in the lifting industry, which is in need of more people like you.”
And, here’s some feedback from Erin Weinbrenner, a personal trainer in Kansas who took his performance to the next level with Show and Go:
“Eric, I just wanted to take a moment and say ‘thanks.’ After finishing up your Show and Go program earlier this year, I hit one of my lifelong goals of benching three wheels – and even went on to another all-time personal record of 325lbs on my bench. Oh, and I only weighed about 165 pounds at the time! Here’s a video of the 325 from a few months ago.” – Eric Weinbrenner
Show and Go was a game-changer for Paul Brazelton, too; check out his feedback from back in May:
“Hi Eric, I just wanted to say thanks for writing Show and Go. I’m wrapping up Phase IV (3-day) next week, and this morning I had the eight, one rep deadlifts. I had never done deadlifts in my life, and when I started this program, I lifted 135 lbs and thought I wasn’t going to be able to walk again. I actually bought a starter weight set (7’ bar + 265lbs of plates) from Craigslist for this program, and had no idea what I was going to do with all of that iron. Well, this morning I had every plate I bought on the bar, and I lifted it eight times off of the ground.
“I know that’s not a lot to you, but for me it’s a huge step. I’ve lifted here and there in my life and while I’ve always had gains, I’ve never become so much stronger so fast. I’m a little guy, only 5’7”, and have been starting to feel my age in the last few years. I do a lot of biking, but whenever I stop because of weather or injury, I gain weight like mad. I did some reading, and it looks like a big reason is that I had so little muscle to keep my metabolic rate up; as I age, I lose even more of the muscle I had. I’d thought about lifting, but I’d always get injured within a few months so have stayed away from it. Then I saw your program. Now, I’m probably stronger than I’ve been in 15 years, have no signs of injury (in fact, old injuries are fading), and am looking forward to an awesome summer of biking AND having an upper body that doesn’t look like it was borrowed from a T-Rex.
“I think what excites me the most is that I’m just getting started. Who knows where I’ll be in a year? A year ago, if I had asked myself that question, I would have answered, ‘Older, more tired, more sore.’ Now, everything has changed.
