Yep, it includes a section on lifting weights.

Send me a copy and I'll promote it on my blog, LH probably would too (he gets more traffic).  If C212 picks it up, would help sell to the trads.  pm me if you are interested.

Low reps high weight, or high reps low weight? Or kettle bells? Navy SEAL or collegiate wrestler caliber type intensity?

Just busting your chops. Gonna buy it.

The latest literature suggests even higher intensity/lower reps (ie for strength) but we now know the key is intra-set rests (vs inter-set).  10-30 sec.  plus keto is key imo, which is catabolic for fat burning but anabolic for muscle building.

Half way through.  The only error so far is the omission of lard as the best source of fat for cooking (imo even better than butter and coconut oil).   ;)

The surest way to get a woman to do something is to forbid her from doing so.  You only have yourself to blame here  :P

My Amazon Review:

Finished reading it.  Excellent book.  A life-hack for the traditionalist Catholic male.  A must read.   There is no other book on this subject for the target audience. Should be marketed via the Catholic Blogosphere. 

Constructive feedback for next edition:  Get Fr Ripperger or Fr Relyea to write the forward;  more info on the more lucrative allied health professions; mention lard as ideal cooking fat.

I received it James and it will be ready for my first born son when he gets a little older. 

I'll skip the chapter on lifting weights  ;)

"Evil smells weakness, and the weak can smell evil."  -Me

"Silence is complicity."  -Me

"The most evident mark of God's anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them."

-Saint John Eudes

James -

I just got the book last week as you suggested in the other thread.

May I ask how you have your books published? Oddly enough, my copy says it was printed just two days before I received it in the mail, and in the very city that I once lived in. (Didn't know there even was a book-printing factory in that area.) But it got me thinking. I'm vaguely familiar with self-publishing in digital format, but I know nothing about how print books get published. Is it a straightforward process?

Anyway, I just finished reading section 1. I don't agree with everything in it, but, then again, this "Red Pill" stuff is not exactly my cup of tea to begin with. But it's nice to read your perspective. I'll take the book with a grain of salt and maybe try some of the stuff out.

I got it - I'm not gonna lie, when I saw the book title, cover, and idea, I kind of snorted at the idea. "Lol okay sure"

Online dating, social media, pornography, and corporate mass media have screwed up our relationships in ways we don't even comprehend. Like if you look around the relationship scene with very open and focused eyes, it's horrendous how terrible things have become, it's actually disgusting and makes me kind of disillusioned with women; all I see with most women is a future based on lust alone and nothing else (which anyone who doesn't have the mental state of an adolescent will see as hugely problematic, especially as you get older in age), or a woman who "settles" for me but will probably divorce me 10 years from now after she misses her "glory days" in college and decides, during her midlife crisis, to cheat on me in the most disgusting ways possible.

And somehow this is "acceptable", and talking to some women online, they get really, really angry when you describe relationships like this. It's actually pretty funny when women get so mad that they feel the need to defend their relationships, yet by doing so they admit that it needs to be defended.



I was worried in this book, that you would be completely blind to how screwed up our world is in the realm of male and female relationships as of recently. I was also worried you would go for the "one size fits all" approach that clearly doesn't work.

You aren't though, you are very down to earth; not only do you account for a lot of the bs that's happening, but you realize that this book isn't a one size fits all.

And I'm incredibly impressed by that. It's been a good read so far, but it's been piecemeal in terms of application.

Live, shave your head, grow a beard, eat meat almost exclusively, and do a MINIMUM of 100 pushups a day. Do you even lift? A soul with your intellect, Grace, and a body of iron will have elegant gals following and fawning over you like all my little critters here in Hoosier land when I distribute the cans of Friday tuna fish.

ETA: I just bought the book. I need to read it before August of this year or it will have to wait until next summer. When I plan to move so there will be no time then.

Mr. Norwood is slowly making himself apparent (I'm Norwood 2 with indications that I'm beginning to thin and go to Norwood 3), but I'm trying to savor the hair I still have before it goes away because I'm lucky to have naturally thick bushy hair with a non-widow's peak hairline (thank God, it runs in my family, I got lucky). Without going for the cliche Zoomer look, I think I might be able to get away with shorter on the sides and thicker on top, but I need to be careful with that. I still think I have about 2-3 years left before the reaper strikes. Then I'll shave. I have a beard, and for some accursed reason, the Irish blood that's in me comes out, and I have brown hair and a red beard. While my beard is thick and bushy, mustache doesn't connect to my beard and my goatee is too bright to be noticeable. I have the same natural hair facial hair pattern as Jesus in the old Byzantine icons, although I look nothing like Jesus (nor am I anything like Jesus, far from it)



I've been eating meat, eggs, and vegetables, and been doing 50 pushups a day, and every other day run 2 miles - although I need to get up to 5k. Need to do more.

I do lift, but gyms are still closed in my area, will be open next week. I previously had access to some weights, but circumstances as of now I only have upper body equipment which a generous samaritan on this forum bought for me :)
