365 Days of Brutality E-Book

365 Days of Brutality E-Book - Far too much emphasis is placed today on the utilization of cookie cutter routines designed by strangers to appeal to the lowest common denominator or lifter, while few texts today appeal to the beast within every real lifter. 365 Days of Brutality: An Anti-Programming Manifesto does just that- it enables lifters to harness their inner badass by emulating the training of the badasses who have gone before them, and in doing so, forge their own path.

365 Days of Brutality E-Book Highlights

  • By Jamie Lewis
  • Owned by Chaos and Pain
365 Days of Brutality is a compendium of a year’s worth of workouts designed to take the aspiring gymgoer from “who gives a sh*t about that gym bro nobody?” to “slavering, musclebound, iron-crazed slaughter beast” within that time frame.  These workouts have been sourced from some of the most insane and intense strength athletes from every discipline- wrestlers, powerlifters, Olympic weightlifters, bodybuilders, and arm wrestlers- to ensure that anyone reading it will have the tools necessary to jump into the middle of anyone’s workout and hang with or beat the people with whom (against whom) they’re training.
Leave the allegedly scientific programming to the prey animals and clock punchers, the posers and the neophytes, and learn to sharpen your fangs and attack the gym with the ferocity that belies your will to defeat gravity. This is 365 Days of Brutality.
** In the download are two files- one in Kindle format, the other in basic ebook format. Between the two, they should work on any device you use. **
