SV News and Announcements

There’s a lot going on here at StrengthVillain as we prepare to transition to the new site within the next few weeks. I decided to take this opportunity to share with the readers what exactly we’re up to here at Villain International.

The single biggest upcoming move is the transition to The new site will feature a ton of new content on a variety of topics, pertaining to all things “man”. I will continue to post plenty of quality information on strength training and related topics, but will also be putting up much more lifestyle oriented content as well. Topics will range from training, to women, to style, to entrepreneurship, and beyond. The strengthvillain forum will be migrating to the new site, and will feature new forums and areas for discussion. The site will also feature a weekly¬†episode of “JPTV” my new video show that will get into all sorts of topics, and will always entertain. I am very excited about what we have in store for you with the new site. Look for it to release by January 1.


New Book Releases

As I’m sure you’re aware, I recently released “Ripped to Shreds”, the third installment in the twelve weeks at Greyskull series. I will be releasing “Gladiator: Stage Two” the highly anticipated sequel to the first in the series this upcoming week. After that title, there will be a yet to be titled book released before Christmas which will be the fat loss equivalent of my book “SWOLE: The Greyskull Growth Principles”. The twelve week series has gotten great feedback, as it was created as a means to take a peak into more diverse and specific examples of programming Greyskull style. Each title follows a “trainee” through twelve weeks of programming. With a custom program for that duration costing a minimum of $169, my current consultation fee, the $27.99 price tag on the books in this series has been regarded as a tremendous value. Recently, I’ve received some comments about these titles not being as dense with text and information as some of my other titles. I’d like to clarify that they are not intended to be heavy reference books (like GSLP or SWOLE) but rather, straightforward titles demonstrating a specific program.

The upcoming diet book is more along the lines of what those seeking more on the academic front, as well as more of my observations and writing style, are more than likely looking for. Look for this one by late December.

There are also plans for a SWOLE Cookbook, as well as future installments of the twelve week series. The book that I am most excited for however, will release in the first quarter of 2103. It is titled “Proper Villain: A Manifesto for the Modern Male” and will be exactly what the name implies, a how to guide on being a man’s man in this day and age. This “rule book” will feature an exciting forward from a good friend of mine, and will be the rawest work that I have ever written. It is a complete dissection of the state of the modern male, and my thoughts on what is needed in order to bring manhood back to our time in a big way. This book has been inspired by many people throughout my life, and will be an interesting title for any man to read.


Greyskull Chapters

With the continued success and sales of “The Greyskull LP: Second Edition” there has been an influx in interest presented to me to certify others in my methods, and enable gyms to operate with my blessing under the Greyskull flag. I’ve examined the idea for some time now, and am at a point where I am discussing opening Greyskull “Chapters” in other areas with the right people. The first chapters will be announced in early 2013. If you are interested in learning more about potentially starting a chapter and what is involved, shoot me an email at


Villain Apparel

After a short hiatus due to back end issues, we will be relaunching and reopening the Villain Apparel line. There are several new designs that will be released within the next few weeks. Prior fulfillment issues and obstacles will no longer be in place, and the entire process of ordering and receiving Villain merchandise will be much smoother. Those that have gotten a peak at some of the new stuff have been blown away by the professionalism in design and presentation. Basically, I’ve stepped it up quote a few notches, and will be presenting Villain as a hyper-legitimate clothing line on par with what you find in quality stores. Look for more announcements regarding the new line soon.


Well those are the main things in the works on this end. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to launching the new site. Posting will resume on a more regular basis on SV here before then, but will switch to a much more regular schedule after ModernVillain goes live.

Thank you, and I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Could villain apparel make some pants/jeans that fit guys who lift? I have to wear a size 38 waist because my legs won’t fit into anything smaller but my waist is only 34.

    • I’ve been looking at manufacturers for that very thing for a while. No immediate plans in the works, but definitely part of the longer term plan.
