10/20/Life Second Edition If you like Starting Strength or 5/3/1, you''re going to LOVE 10/20/Life! What is 10/20/Life? 10-and-20 weeks at a time, for a lifetime of positive momentum in training and in LIFE. This philosophy is a life-long approach for any level of lifter or athlete. Many recreational lifters utilize the protocols in this book to have a better plan in the gym, with no plans to ever compete. On the other hand, many competitive lifters from Beginner to Pro use this approach with great success! From The Author, Brian Carroll: "With 10/20/Life, my objective is to teach you to get the results you want by coaching yourself-the same way a superior coach would take you through an individualized program in a great gym. We start out with a thorough examination of your weak points because that''s how quality coaching works. The idea is to show you what to program, and when, based on your weaknesses in the squat, bench press, and deadlift. This sounds simple, but it''s something most people don''t even consider, much less put into practice. From there, the 10/20/Life system takes you through the best injury-preventative warm-up in the industry, followed by a comprehensive layout of coaching cues for each individual lift. From start to finish, you''ll learn what to look for and what to do, and you''ll learn the reasoning behind all of it. By the time you''re finished working your way through these materials, you''ll be able to coach yourself, and others, like a pro." Learn to be your own coach, attack your weaknesses and utilize a proven philosophy that is a guide to permanent success. This book includes a comprehensive WEAK POINT CHART and WARM-UP INDEX that teach you how to assess your own training and PRESCRIBE THE EXERCISES YOU NEED. 20 YEARS OF RESEARCH AND TRIALS distilled into a program you can actually use! The plan is an easy five-step process: 1. Choose your schedule. (3 different) 2. Determine your weak points in the main lifts. (use the coaching guide to correct form) 3. Use the Weak Point and Assistance Exercise indexes to custom design your own program. (pick your assistance work as specified in the Weak Point index) 4. Follow the warm-up protocol listed. (4 parts, super easy and custom) 5. Determine your level of readiness, then train according to the system''s RPE plan for that day or if you''re in precontest, you go off of percentages. (this all depends on where you are in your phase of training) Just a few of the sizable additions to this "second edition" physical copy: * New chapter "Deload" * New chapter "Establishing a baseline" * New chapter "Speed work" Other updated features include: * A reintroduction of the 10/20/Life philosophy and update with AMAZING testimonials - male and female, raw and equipped. * The 5 main principles of 10/20/Life * How do you gain a mental edge?

You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars per month on the worthless supplements that steroid freaks shill in advertisements. You don't need to constantly change up your exercise routines to "confuse" your muscles. I'm pretty sure muscles lack cognitive abilities, but this approach is a good way to just confuse you instead. You don't need to burn through buckets of protein powder every month, stuffing down enough protein each day to feed a third world village. You don't need to toil away in the gym for a couple of hours per day, doing tons of sets, supersets, drop sets, giant sets, etc. (As a matter of fact, this is a great way to stunt gains and get nowhere.) You don't need to grind out hours and hours of boring cardio to shed ugly belly fat and love handles and get a shredded six-pack. (How many flabby treadmillers have you come across over the years?) You don't need to completely abstain from "cheat" foods while getting down to single-digit body fat percentages. If you plan cheat meals correctly, you can actually speed your metabolism up and accelerate fat loss. In this book you're going to learn something most guys will never know: The exact formula of exercise and eating that makes putting on 10 to 15 pounds of quality lean mass a breeze...and it only takes 8-12 weeks. This book reveals secrets like... The 6 biggest myths and mistakes of building muscle that stunt 99% of guys' muscle gains. (These BS lies are pushed by all the big magazines and even by many trainers.) How to get a lean, cut physique that you love (and that girls drool over) by spending no more than 5 percent of your time each day. The 4 laws of muscle growth that, when applied, turn your body into an anabolic, muscle-building machine. You'll be shocked at how easy it really is to get big once you know what you're doing... How to develop a lightning-fast metabolism that burns up fat quickly and leaves you feeling full of energy all day long. The carefully-selected exercises that deliver MAXIMUM results for your efforts, helping you build a big, full chest, a wide, tapered back, and bulging biceps. A no-BS guide to supplements that will save you hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars each year that you would've wasted on products that are nothing more than bunk science and marketing hype. How to get shredded while still indulging in the "cheat" foods that you love every week like pasta, pizza, and ice cream. And a whole lot more! The bottom line is you CAN achieve that "Hollywood hunk" body without having your life revolve around it--no long hours in the gym, no starving yourself, no grueling cardio that turns your stomach. Imagine, just 12 weeks from now, being constantly complimented on how you look and asked what the heck you're doing to make such startling gains. Imagine enjoying the added benefits of high energy levels, no aches and pains, better spirits, and knowing that you're getting healthier every day. SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS!
