  1. I’m a fitness coach and gym owner myself, and I truly LOVE some of your other books, especially Greyscull LP and Swole.

    This new book however, which I bought the very second I got the email suggestion to do so, would be more appropriately titled:

    “Rip-off to Shreds”

    I guess it’s okay to milk customers to a certain degree, but a “book” with just a bunch of font size 20 day-by-day exercise set/rep schemes? And no specific diet advice? Come on… This was way beneath your standards, and I feel cheated.

    • Gunnar, first I appreciate your support and feedback on the other titles.

      The “Twelve Weeks” series is designed to be exactly that, a look at how I might program training for a hypothetical trainee with a specific objective. The series was created at the request of readers who wanted to see more in terms of how I structure training for individuals outside of the conventional GSLP framework. They are not designed to be heavy reference books like GSLP or SWOLE.

      The fat loss counterpart to SWOLE is in the works, and will be released in the future. That title will be dense with text outlining the principles that I use on the diet front to accomplish the task of fat loss.

      Ripped to Shreds, like Gladiator, and Mastodon are simply a different category of books. Considering the cost of a custom program or consultation with me, the price point is regarded by many satisfied buyers as a bargain. I have not received any feedback on any of the three titles from buyers who felt “milked” or ripped off in anyway.

      I am sorry that you were not happy with your purchase this time around. I am looking up your transaction, and will process you a refund promptly.

    I too bought this book the day it came out. Unlike Gunnar though I knew more or less what I was getting, as I already own the other installments. I even already had a good idea of what the contents would be like, since I’ve been following your site since the start and am familiar with your methods for strength and conditioning and the idea of adding layers for specific goals. In fact, I find myself thinking just like that these days for myself and the few friends I occasionally program for.

    Even knowing all this, I still consider it a good purchase though. The contents are tried and true with no BS and provide a strong backbone for programming for myself and others. The price is fair and as far as the gym industry goes, the amount of useful content per $ is excellent.

    One quibble though, John, if you get this: I’ve said it before but to repeat, what sets your stuff apart from the other books, podcasts, barbell programs etc. out there is not the content (you do effective old school stuff, nothing sexy, and that’s what we like) but your voice and attitude towards training, which rang through loud and clear in previous books (GSLP 1st edition was a wakeup call for me and let me know I was a sad sack of shit, and Swole was hilarious) but was absent in this and Mastadon. I’m hoping this comes back in future books.

    • Thanks SSD,

      I’m glad that you are enjoying the book.

      I value your continued support tremendously. You’re right in that my voice is not present to the degree that it is in other titles with this series. These books are an answer to a sort of FAQ I’ve had regarding specifics of programming.

      I’ll be releasing the fat loss answer to SWOLE in mid December. That one is in the style of GSLP and SWOLE; loaded with information and how-to, but also thick with philosophy and my personal thoughts and observations on the subject as well. Additionally, I will be releasing Proper Villain: A Manifesto for the Modern Male in the first quarter of next year, which is entirely composed of the type of content that you are looking for. That title steps outside of the gym and addresses the concept of being a man as a whole. Based on your remarks, I know that you will enjoy the book very much. I’ll be getting some promo copies out shortly after its release. I will be sure that you receive one for providing your feedback here and contributing to the evolution and growth of this thing.

      Again, thank you.
