2 Big Mistakes

Share This:

Had my latest article posted up on T-Nation recently:

Chances are if you’re reading T Nation you’re interested in muscle, and you’re interested in packing on as much of it as possible.

Whether it’s to improve performance on the field, look better naked, or to stop the, “Hey, you look like that skinny kid from the movie Road Trip” taunts, it stands to reason that a fair share of the people reading this have gone through a bulking cycle or two.

And failed miserably.

Bulking isn’t easy – it takes a lot of hard work, time, and dedication. But if you’re someone who’s consistently making the same two mistakes below, then it’s time to make some changes.

Everyone and their Little League coach is seemingly making the trip to NYC this weekend to support my boys John Romaniello and Adam Bornstein for the book launch of their new book Man 2.0: Engineering the Alpha Male.

Unfortunately, while I was invited, I won’t be able to make the trip because I’ll be presenting at the Elite Training Workshop (alongside Eric Cressey, Mike Robertson, and Mike Reinold) at Cressey Performance this weekend.

As I noted earlier in the week, John is offering some pretty sweet additional bonuses for those who purchase the book on the official Engineering the Alpha website HERE.  Offers that end tomorrow (Saturday, April 20th at noon).  These offers ALSO apply to those who buy the Kindle version (so long as they forward their receipts of purchase).

If that’s not incentive enough I have one more ulterior motive to entice you to purchase the book that I want to throw your way.  The current #1 Hardcover Health/Advice book on the New York Times best sellar list is It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great by none other than Gwyneth Paltrow. The same Gwyneth Paltrow who, while being BFFs with “celebrity” trainer Tracy Anderson (of the “no woman should lift a weight heavier than three lbs” and “baby food diet” fame), was also diagnosed with osteopenia (a precursor to osteoporosis) two years ago; in no small part to the extreme diets and food restriction she has long advocated.

What a bunch of BS.

So, if you don’t buy Man 2.o (a book that’s actually written by two well-respected people IN the industry) and help it climb to #1, you’re essentially supporting Paltrow Skeletor and Anderson Mephistopheles.

Okay, that’s a bit harsh, but hopefully you see my point.

Ladies, This Means You, Too.

Understandably, a book not starting with the words 50 Shades of.… and revolves around how to go about increasing T-levels isn’t high on a woman’s “to read” list. To that end, John has placed his best-selling program Final Phase Fat Loss on sale as a “peace offering” for any women out there feeling left out and still interested in getting some top-notch information in their hands.

You have to act quickly, though, because the offer ends tomorrow (Saturday, April 20th).

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    Wait, so is the pic of Paltrow on her book cover actually with makeup on? If so, holy shit, she is not looking good these days. Since you are such a negative Nancy Tony :) I shall offer a glasses half full interpretation of the Tracy Anderson approach to (un)training. Her clients will have a tough time hurting themselves deadlifting if they are doing it with 3lb pink dumbbells. It's basically a standard touch touch! See, she is all about injury prevention. You've had it wrong all along! Which brings up a killer business idea on my part. Gonna ask her if I can design 2lb pink bumper plates so she can have her clients start deadlifting! At least it will look like they are doing something...plus, no need for neutral spine on her signature deadlifts! Damnit, I gotta get into Hollwood pronto!

    I'm waiting with great anticipation for my copy of Alpha. I did see the Paltrow book you refer to and my first thought was "What's in the book!" "What's in the book!"....
