I’m sitting here at Starbucks working and downing copious amounts of coffee – of course!
And as usual, I’ve got multiple projects staring me in the face… which is how I like it. I have a bit of a one-man factory system going where I like to have one project that I’m creating, while outlining and preparing the next one at the same time. This way, as soon as the one is finished and ready to go into circulation, I can jump straight into the next.
So… as I was sitting here writing the upcoming 21 Day Squat Challenge book (which should be finished and available within the next few weeks), it occurred to me that I have a problem.
I have the book I’m writing now, but I’m going back and forth between what my next one should be! I have two options, and I don’t know which one should go first in the queue.
I figured I’d let you decide 🙂
I’m going to write BOTH of them – don’t worry – but since I’m writing them for you, it only seems right that you have a say in the ordering of them.
Here are the two options:
Romancing the Clean: A step-by-step guide to Clean technique for the Totally Clueless
This will be the completion of my Romancing the Bar trilogy. If you haven’t already checked out Romancing the Snatch and Romancing the Jerk, make sure you do. The snatch book is the first step if you’re a beginner.
But the problem with teaching the clean and jerk… is that pesky “and” in the middle!
It is nearly always true that a lifter will feel very natural with one and feel horrible with the other. For most beginners, the jerk is the hardest, and it’s why I wrote that book first. But that is NOT universally true.
It wasn’t true for me! The jerk is a lift I feel very comfortable with… but the clean is (by far) my worst lift. And so I’ve had to really get sneaky with it to keep up. A number of the athletes I’ve trained have felt the same.
This book will contain all of that sneakiness 🙂 so that you can clean like the bad-ass you are.
Platform Domination: A complete Contest Preparation guide for intermediate Weightlifters
This is the “What happens next?” after you’ve finished my beginners Samurai Strength program. In that program, your goal was to DO a contest for the first time. Now it’s time to up your goals so that you can kick-ass. It will include a full 15-week contest prep routine as well as all of my insider mental strategies that are used by the best athletes in the world to dominate.
After you’ve completed Samurai Strength, you are not a “true” beginner any more (by my definition). You are an intermediate. And that means your training needs to change and reflect that.
This book is that next step.
Which one do you want first???
Go below and tell me which book you want first in the comments section… AND, if you have any OTHER big questions that might make for a great eGuide, let me know. All of the books I’ve written so far were in direct response to what YOU told me you need.
