^ Liked this so I had to add:

Quote:
The point is two-fold:

1. There are an awful lot of really, really
strong men (and women) that no one knows about.

2. You can get really big and really strong
training in your garage, basement or back yard,
and using nothing but basic equipment and plenty
of iron.

Those themes dominate much of my writing. My books
and courses are written for the guys who like to
hit the heavy iron -- some of whom train in gyms,
but many of whom train in their garage, their
basement or their backyard.

You can call them cellar-dwellers, garage gorillas
or yard apes. Or you can call them dinosaurs.

But they all end up with one thing in common --
they all end up being seriously, seriously strong.
Many of them end up freaky strong. And some of them
end up scary strong.

You don't need very much to get there. In no particular
order, all it requires is:

1. Hard work

2. Discipline

3. Commitment

4. The iron will to succeed

5. Determination

6. Heavy iron

7. The right kin d of training program

Now, I can't can't give you numbers 1 thru 5. They
come from within. You're the one who has to bring
them.

And I don't sell equipment, so you need to get the
iron somewhere else.

But what I can give is this -- the very best, most
productive and effective, no-nonsense, real world
strength training information on the planet.

And I'm going to tell you this. If the strongest man
in the world really does train in an unheated garage
in Cleveland, he trains Dino-style. Guaranteed.

As always, thanks for reading, and have a great day --
and a great weekend! if you train today, make it a
good one!

Yours in strength,

Brooks Kubik
