So, look what arrived in the post today. Coach Ken may be on the other side of the world bobbing up and down on a huge container ship, but he still managed to have Amazon deliver some essential reading for me…

“Don’t skip any pages.” says Ken. “This book is important for your knowledge.”

An insight into the support Ken has given me. “Another one for you is HWPO by Mat Fraser. It’s written in a similar style to The World’s Fittest Book, but this one is specifically aimed at improvements in the gym. There are some excellent tips on the Olympic lifts in the book. It will be important when we start to add stuff like Clean and Jerks, Thrusters, and Snatches to our rest days.”

HWPO, by the way, stands for “Hard Work Pays Off”.
