Advice to the Bodybuilder

Time-line to Bodybuilding Success
Takes first place in the Novice Michigan Masters contest
I achieved what seemed an impossible dream. I captured the 1st place trophy at the Novice Michigan Masters contest on my very first try. My conditioning was right on;complete and polished. I’d shed close to 20 lbs of body fat and put on lean muscle tissue in just six-months. The secret? Proper nutrition and Beverly supplements! Now that I’ve found what works,I’m sticking with it and so is my wife.

Here’s How I Took My Physique (and life) to a Higher Level
