Weekend Link Love – Edition 289

I’m excited to participate in a special eBook package built specifically for everything having to do with bodyweight training. As you well know, I’m a huge fan of bodyweight workouts, and the Bodyweight Bundle [7] represents the cream of the crop. Just $37 gets you 38 books from the masters of the field. The offer ends and the bundle won’t be available after tomorrow, so grab it now if you’re interested.

Episode #12 of The Primal Blueprint Podcast [8] is now live. I answer your questions and give a short preview of the upcoming Primal Blueprint Expert Certification program. If you haven’t already subscribed on iTunes, do so now and you’ll never miss an episode.
