There is nothing wrong with the BFL program for a beginner. Fitness is not just a short term thing but is a total lifestyle change. Stay focused, set goals and keep at it.

Rome wasn't built in a day, be patient it will happen if you are willing to make the sacrafices it takes. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy and building a better body is no exception. There are NO shortcuts.

Everyone's body is unique, but stay focused, train hard, eat healthy and don't quit and I guarantee you will see results.
