Logan Christopher’s ‘Mental Muscle’

Looks great.
Next on the reading list is Logan Christopher’s ‘Mental Muscle’. Very keen to dive into it.
To help explain what it’s all about, here’s a piece from the Dragon Door page :

Imagine: you have under 7 minutes to increase the reps on your hardest exercise by 350%… WITHOUT any changes to your physical technique. It is only by employing certain little-known secrets of mind-control that you can ever hope to blow through your PR barriers with this level of instant success.

I have to confess I was skeptical myself that ANY mental technique could ever result in an instantaneous 350% increase in an already ball-buster of a PR. Until I saw exactly that thing happen, right in front of me, at Dragon Door’s recent Health and Strength Conference.

Good stuff.


NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you’d like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.
And if you’re looking for other training-related books I recommend, check out the complete lists on Goodreads.
