Who The Heck Is This “Lee Hayward” Guy Anyway, And Why Should I Even Listen To Him?

Well, I’d probably be asking the same thing if I were reading this for the first time. So let me start by introducing myself... If you haven’t already figured it out by now, my name is Lee Hayward and you may have seen me before, because I’ve been online for over a decade! (I’m one of the “dinosaurs” of the online bodybuilding scene :-)

Lee Hayward competing at the 2010 Atlantic Canadian Bodybuilding Championships.

In fact my website www.LeeHayward.com is currently the #1 Ranked Bodybuilding Personality Website online (as ranked by Alexa.com).

Since 1999 I’ve personally helped countless numbers of aspiring bodybuilders and muscle building enthusiasts from all over the world pack on rock hard muscle mass, increase their physical strength, and get ripped.

I’ve worked with competitive bodybuilders, fitness & figure competitors, powerlifters, football players, boxers, martial artists, as well as average guys and gals who just want to get in shape and look their best.

In addition to coaching others, I also practice what I preach. I’ve been competing regularly in bodybuilding competitions since 1995. With my most recent competition being the 2010 Atlantic Canadian Bodybuilding Championships.

The reason I’m telling you all this, is NOT to toot my own horn, but to let you know that I’m a REAL person who actually does workout and that I practice what I preach.

Bodybuilding & Fitness is my passion! Unlike a lot of the “phoney fitness gurus” and flabby out of shape personal trainers, who may talk a good game, but when you actually see what they look like physically you have to wonder if they even workout?

This is a pet peeve of mine that really pisses me off I can’t stand it when I see someone proclaiming themselves as a “Muscle Building or Fat Loss Expert” when they don’t even practice what they preach and look the part.


But I Have To Admit,
I Was NOT Always In Good Shape...

In fact when I was younger I had a scrawny, weak and puny “skinny-fat” body. You know what I’m talking about... The spaghetti noodle thin arms, flat chest, puny chicken legs, all connected in the middle with a soft mushy belly fat roll.

This was my very first home gym machine... The York 2001 This is where I first began my humble bodybuilding journey

Being scrawny and out of shape like that certainly didn’t help my self-esteem. I got picked on and bullied in school. I was pretty much a loner and the other students just walked all over me. It seemed like they could sense that I was weak and self-conscious and they took advantage of it.

I was so embarrassed with how pathetic my body looked, that I was willing to do anything to change it. I can clearly remember how my muscle-building journey started...

Back in 1990 I decided that enough was enough, I finally had it with being picked on and humiliated from being the “skinny fat guy” and I was going to do something about it!

I asked my parents to get me a home gym for my Christmas present that year so I could start working out and building muscle.

They were very supportive and ended up getting me a York 2001 home gym machine and a York barbell and dumbbell set. This is where I got my humble start in the world of working out and bodybuilding.


At First I Was So Excited About Working Out!

But This Was When My REAL Challenges Began...

When I started out I was so naive that I assumed all I had to do was “workout everyday” and all my physique troubles would be solved. I was expecting to see my body rippling with muscles in the matter of weeks...

But It Never Happened...

I faithfully followed those cheesy little York workout wall charts that came with my home gym machine. Day after day I’d go through the total body workouts. But my body was certainly NOT “rippling with muscles”.

I couldn’t understand what I was doing wrong? I was following the workouts…Where were the muscles?

I was floundering like this for months. Then I started asking around and getting “workout advice” from gym teachers, coaches, friends, and family members who all thought they were being helpful. But they really didn’t have a clue as to what worked and what didn’t when it came to building muscle.

Before, when I started out I only weighed a scrawny 135 pounds. I was literally a bone rack. I mean just look at the picture. I had a thin chest and skinny spaghetti noodle arms

So I literally wasted years of progress by following old outdated workout programs and listening to out of shape coaches and gym teachers who “used to lift weights back in the day”.

In fact, the picture to the right shows what I looked like after 3 full years of working out!

Obviously, Something Was Wrong Here...

I may have trimmed of some of my pudgy belly, but what I was doing certainly wasn’t helping me gain more muscle mass. I only weighed 135 pounds and I was literally a bone rack. Just look at the picture... It’s NOT exactly what you’d expect to see from someone who has been lifting weights consistently for 3 full years!

It got to the point where I was working out daily. Sometimes for several hours at a time. Severe overtraining was putting it mildly. Looking back at it now I can see how stupid it was, but at the time I didn’t know any different. And my lack of progress would just frustrate me even more.

Have you ever felt frustrated like this, busting your ass in the gym week after week, and nothing to show for your efforts?

If so, we have a lot more in common then you realize, and you can relate to how discouraged and helpless I felt inside. It was because of this that...


I Went On A Personal Mission To Find Out Exactly What I Needed To Do To Build Muscle...

I spent years reading and studying all the material out there on how to workout and build muscle. I became obsessed with learning everything

there was to know about exercise and nutrition. At first I was really excited because there seemed to be a lot of good information available. But the more research I did, the more confused I got :-(

And the real frustrating part was that most of what I learned was WRONG... it simply didn’t work when I tried it!

You see the dirty truth of the matter is that commercial interests have complicated things to the point where it’s hard to know who to trust anymore. Unfortunately, most of the “big wigs” in charge couldn’t care less about helping the average guy pack on muscle & get in shape. All they care about is the almighty $$ Dollar $$

A prime example of this is with Muscle Magazines. I’ve literally bought hundreds of bodybuilding and fitness magazines over the past 20 years and read most of them cover-to-cover.

I’ve tried dozens and dozens of the so called “champion bodybuilder” workouts that were published, and more often than not I’d end up burnt out, over trained, and more frustrated then ever.

And to make matters worse, 99% of the workouts you see in the magazines(and online) are made up by professional “ghost writers”, and are NOT even written by the actual bodybuilders themselves!


Please Don’t Fall Victim To These Dirty Lies …Like I Did...

This is going on all the time. In fact a lot of companies will even hire people from 3rd world countries for dirt cheap to slap together half baked workout routines.

“Do 3 sets of this, and 4 sets of that, super-set it with something else... blah, blah, blah...”

The problem with this is that many of these “ghost writers” haven’t even stepped foot inside a gym before. They are just re-cycling crap that’s already out there and passing it off as legit workout programs.

In fact most of the workout programs you see published in magazines and online have NEVER been tested on anyone in the real world. They are just slapped together in order to fill up page space.

And not only are they publishing BS workout programs, but they are doing it to make a propagated profit at YOUR expense!

More often than not these stupid ghost written workout programs quickly go from doing “3 workouts a week” to trying to sell you the latest Hyped Up Magic Muscle Building Supplement Stack.

You see every single magazine out there is owned by, or affiliated with, a supplement company. These magazines are selling full page advertisements for $10,000+ per page!

So when supplement companies are forking over that kind of cash it’s no wonder that over 80% of the magazines content is nothing more than supplement advertisements.

Even most of the articles that get published are nothing more then cleverly disguised supplement ads. And I don’t even want to get started ranting about all the crappy “shady supplements” that they are pushing, and then laughing all the way to the bank... with YOUR MONEY!

If You Can’t Trust The Magazines You Can Trust The “Internet”... Right?

I can remember the very first time I logged into the Internet. I was using an old 486 computer with a slow telephone dial up connection back in 1997. I went to YaHoo.com and searched for the word “bodybuilding”. Granted the Internet was peanuts compared to what it is like today, but non the less I thought I hit the jackpot!

I spent countless hours on all the popular bodybuilding forums and message boards looking for some “real world advice”, only to be bombarded with tons of useless contradictory crap and childish online debates.

And if you ever get a chance to actually see the guys who proclaim to be the “bodybuilding forum experts” it would SHOCK YOU.

They all act big and pretend to know it all, but most of them are just scrawny teenagers who just started working out themselves.

A lot of these kids get a kick out of posting up fake pictures and talking smack, while they pretend to be “Experts” on the Internet forums... All the while keeping hidden behind the safety of their computer monitor and anonymous screen name.

You Have To Be Very Careful From Whom You Take Advice From These Days...

The big turning point for me was when I started attending local bodybuilding and powerlifting contests. At first I would just go as a spectator, but

I would stay afterwards just so I could meet and talk to the competitors.

This is without a doubt what helped me the most and where I learned the “secrets” to building muscle, right from the people who were actually doing it in the REAL World!

I became good friends with several of the local bodybuilders and powerlifters and would often train with them in the gym.

This allowed me to see what they did themselves, and I would basically just pick their brains for tips and tricks on how to pack on lean muscle mass.

This is when things REALLY started to “Click” for me and I was able to make some of my best muscle gains ever!

Since then I’ve made it my mission in life to help people, just like YOU, get in their best shape ever and build a lean muscular physique through smart training and nutrition. I’m sick and tired of seeing honest hard working people being misinformed and wasting their time with ineffective programs. I don’t want you to have to go through the same struggles and frustrations that I went through.
