Musclenow is a muscle building program by Francesco Castano. I bought the Musclenow program a while back, when the sales page garnered my curiosity. This is another one of those bodybuilding e-books that promises you all the secrets of getting huge. Musclenow is often asked by bodybuilding newbies in the forums desperate for the “magic” routine.
Before and after picture of Francesco Castano
He claims the first picture was taken when he was 15 and in the 2nd, after he bulked up and got fat. Now anyone who is a real skinny hardgainer (speaking from experience), would not be able to bulk up to that very large size of muscle(and fat) at the age of about 20, if you were a real natural hardgainer.
If you look closely in the before picture, it looks like he hasn’t even started puberty. The picture may have been when he was 12. Lots of people when they are young are skinny because they dont eat and are very active. I think Francesco should have used a picture of himself when he was a little bit older, to give his transformation better credibility. Regardless, Francesco has acheived a body that few have done.
Musclenow book overview:
The book is 105 pages long and written in a pretty straightforward manner. The book covers both muscle building and fat loss. Francesco gives well rounded advice on how to structure a workout and what excercises to do. He also tells you how to get through plateaus by cycling workouts. His nutritional and diet sections are thorough and includes sample meal plans you can follow. I like how he doesn’t over emphasize supplements, like some other programs. Many other programs say that supplements are necessary for effective muscle building, even though most bodybuilding supplements are junk. His also includes workout logs, where you can record your workouts, which makes progress easy to track. The program also throws in some other great stuff, including lifetime email support from Francesco Casteno and access to his private discussion forum.
Do you recommend Musclenow Program?
No, its over priced and nothing special. There is much better programs out there for the price. I recommend Anthony Ellis Program instead. You can read my full review Anthony Ellis Workout Program Review
