An Update On The Ebook And A Teaser

What I thought would be a relatively simple thing has turned out to be a goddamned Trial of Hercules.  Not in a bad way, however- just fucking difficult.  As it happens, I'm a more prolific in my writing than Dean Koontz, and that motherfucker churns out a shitty novel every 36 minutes.  The ebook has now become a series, due to the fact that the first installment, which is perhaps a quarter to a third of the blog and covers training.  
Assuming I stop getting distracted, or just up and move to Britain.

Lest you wonder what the point of getting them would be, I'm fairly certain that this is one of the most, if not the most heavily cited non-academic publication of all time, and it'd be a hell of a resource to fuel online arguments and training alike.  Additionally, I'm rewriting half to a quarter of the blogs, and the rest are getting heavy edits, in addition to being reordered in a way that would make sense to anyone with a modicum of respect for the Dewey Decimal System or categorization in general.  Expect it to go up for sale Thursday, and it's clocking in at about 350 pages, including 7 pages of citations.  It'll be an awesome resource for training information, battling ignorance on the web, in the street, and in the gym, and it'll help me get to the meet.  Plus, you can finally read the fucking things fully edited.


To give you a taste of what's in store, here's a teaser for the first book.  Subsequent ebooks will be Nutrition, Mental and Hormonal, and Assholishness and Badassery.


Thanks for the suggestions on edits.

Thanksgiving will definitely be a day to give thanks, because this thing will finally be done.

I've now got two new blogs in it, it's completely reordered, most of the blogs have been at least partly rewritten, and instead of being chaotic, the whole fucking thing makes a lot of sense when viewed as a whole.  You will appreciate the wait when you see it.

  2. Can't wait! You should update that "175" weight to the 200 you're around now. Shit... That's like a 50% gain in bodyweight from the start.

  6. "Assuming I stop getting distracted, or just up and move to Britain." - Don't do it; Nuts magazine is not a true representation of the hideous plague that is the women of Britain.

    Your possible overuse of the word hackneyed is rendering it... hackneyed! However, I have just learned about 4 new words while looking at potential synonyms. Definitely need to try and incorporate "platitudinous" into my daily vocabulary.

    Will be getting the eBooks, keep up the good work!

  10. Hahaha. Ryan- I just noticed that. 360 pages is a lot to edit, haha. I'm going to take another pass at it today and then hand it off to a second set of eyes
    thereafter, it'll go up.

    Tshirts will go on sale as soon as I have the capital to invest in their creation. I might use that design, since you guys like it. I just came up with another logo that's pretty sick as well, though I lack the photoshop skills to make the fucking thing as of yet, haha.

  17. Hey Jamie, I'm also stuck behind a desk for 8-10 hours a day. How do you stay active and prevent your legs from atrophying? I feel like its definitely preventing me from getting leaner. I find myself just walking around aimlessly once an hour, and people definitely give some funny looks if I do pushups in my cubicle...

  18. I lift weights before and after work. If anything, my legs are glad for the rest. As for staying lean, I outlined that in the Predator Diet blogs.
