I must thank Yosef Johnson and Martin Binggiser for sending me a free copy of the book.

First off I am sorry I am for leaving this blog without posts recently. I will try to update it more frequently and maybe start a training journal here, but at this time I don’t want the readers to see my low numbers in the gym.
