We have some awesome writers and athletes who contribute to Garage Gym Life. But we admit that we don’t know everything. So we scour the web to find the best articles from yesterday and today (we’d get them from the future as well but our DeLorean is in the shop) and bring you the links here. Today’s heads up concerns Jerred Moon a Strength and Conditioning Coach and the creator of End of Three Fitness which specializes in simple, effective barbell-centric fitness. Moon is a former Physical Training Leader and Fitness Program Manager within U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command. He’s been featured in WOD Talk Magazine, Sweat RX Magazine, Life Hacker, The Huffington Post, The Art of Manliness, and more. He currently coaches and programs for hundreds of athletes from military operators to stay-at-home mom’s. You should be impressed but what you really want to know is why are we talking about him right now?
Because he’s written a book called The Garage Gym Athlete (see why it caught my attention?) The book promises to help with gym set up including when to buy and when to go the DIY route and programming. Don’t believe me? Check out some of the things covered in the book:
- How to rearrange your budget and family objections so the ideal garage gym can come to life
- THE best way to build stability (without a crunch in sight!)
- Exactly why you should thank the inventor of PVC (especially after you check out Chapter 13!)
- A step by step guide to picking a quality barbell (hint: sporting goods get 3 things wrong)
- A down in the trenches way to build a power rack (warning: for the bold and brazen, but you’ll love it)
A lot of this is stuff you could find out on your own using the magic of Google (or Bing let’s be fair) but this book seems to have collected everything in one place for you. You can purchase a copy on Amazon, download a free copy if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription or purchase a physical copy for $9.99 all by following the link below!
