Just wanted to acknowledge the influence your books and words have had on my lifting journey. I’ve been lifting for 15 years since starting in Corrections. I tore my pec and the same year sprained my back. My weight ballooned because the injuries affected my workouts. Your words have had a huge impact on me and my desire to return to a leaner more fit self and my goal is to fight the bulge forever! Your advice to get a lifting coach has had a huge impact. There are very few people I have met in my life who I look to for motivation. You are among them…so thanks for sharing your journey and experience. Not only do I love reading your work, but I’ve adopted several of your practices and am enjoying the results. To sum up to some guys at work I said your book is like a pocket coach (if the book were pocket sized).
