Hail to the Dinosaurs!
Let me begin with a great big THANK YOU
to everyone who stepped up, took action,
and reserved a copy of my new course:
The Training Secrets of John Grimek.
The response has been huge. In fact, we
have shattered all previous records for
a new product launch.
And that's the way it should be -- because
this is about John Grimek -- and John Grimek
was really special.
Let me share something that tells you a
little bit about the kind of man Grimek
There's a section in one of Arthur Saxon's
books about what it feels like to lift 400
Saxon, of course, was a tremendous bent presser,
and he was referring to what it felt like to
bent press 400 pounds.
Grimek was a good bent presser, too -- and a
man who never backed away from a challenge.
So get this -- he read that passage in Saxon's
book, and thought it would be interesting to
see what 400 pounds felt like.
So he went to the York Gym and started bent
pressing, and worked up pretty heavy -- and
then loaded the bar to 400 pounds -- wrestled
it up to his shoulder -- and carefully lowered
himself into the bottom position of the bent
He tried to stand up with the weight, but he
lost his balance and had to drop it. So it
didn't count as a complete lift.
But still, Grimek had done what he set out to
He wanted to know what 400 pounds felt like.
Now he knew.
Do NOT run out and try this -- you'll probably
break your back. Grimek was insanely strong and
insanely flexible (he could do a full splits
and almost tough his elbows to his ankles with
his knees locked), so he got away with the stunt.
For a lesser mortal, it would NOT be a good idea.
So seriously -- don't try it!
But my point is this: Grimek studied the old-timers
(just as we do) -- and he was very interested in
old-school lifts and old-school lifting records
(just as we are) -- and he actually practiced
many of the old-school lifts (just as we do) --
and when he read about something that sounded
interesting (or challenging0 he gave it a try
(just as we do).
I think that goes to prove that John Grimek was
Anyhow, we're smashing previous sales records --
and we want to keep on doing it -- so if you've
not already done so, step up and join your fellow
Dinos and reserve YOUR copy of the new John
As always, thanks for reading and have a great
day. If you train today, make it a good one!
Yours in strength,
P.S. Save clams on s&h by ordering two or more
Dino products together. I love the Post office,
but there's no sense spending more than is
necessary on s&h. And you'll find plenty to
choose from here at Dino Headquarters:
