NEW BOOK – RAISING THE BAR

You can now pre-order your copy of my new book Raising The Bar: How To Do A Thousand Chin-ups Or Pull-ups.

All the profits from my book sales will directly support The Garai Makaya Foundation & Documentary Film Project and a signed copy of the book will be sent to you as soon as it is published. I expect the book to be available early in 2021 and will keep you updated on the exact date as things progress.

The more advance orders I receive the better my publishing and promotional options are likely to be, so I really appreciate your support.


This book tells the story of my training journey and the different techniques I explored in order to develop the ability to break the chin-ups world record, but it is also intended to demonstrate a simple methodology that’s easy to implement and will allow most individuals to optimise their upper body pulling strength to the extent required to be able to complete at least 1,000 chin-ups or pull-ups within a single day and high numbers of reps in a single set, without letting go of the bar.

I am pretty confident in the methodologies I have developed in my own quest to break the chin-ups and pull-ups world records and I am confident that anyone who carefully follows the advice outlined in this book will at least be able to build up to completing 1,000 chin-ups or pull-ups in a single training session. The book will also explain how to develop a routine that allows you to perform incredible numbers of chin-ups and pull-ups in a single set – without letting go of the bar.

The content in this book is based on the life experiences that have shaped me into a health & fitness coach and the methodologies I share are not available anywhere else. Like everything I do in my fitness coaching, the approaches in my book are simpler, more efficient and much easier to understand than the conventional training approaches that have been out there for years.

So if you are keen to understand the formula for making chin-ups and pull-ups easier, pre-order your copy using the links further down this page. If you can’t wait until early 2021 for the book to be released, but you still want to build up your chin-ups and pull-ups abilities, you can sign up to my remote online fitness coaching plan instead and get taken through the training plan by me personally, as one of my coaching clients.

Everyone who joins my online coaching 1,000 chin-ups and pull-ups program before this book becomes available will still receive their copy of the book as soon as it’s released (and because your copy of the book will be paid for through your coaching fees it will still result in a contribution to my fundraising cause like all other orders of this book).


HERE’S A SAMPLE EXTRACT FROM THE BOOK:

Your Guide To Maximising Chin-ups & Pull-ups…

Now that I have reached my best I want to share a formula that I have learned which will allow anyone to become the best they can be at chin-ups and pullups (and will take most people up to 1,000 reps in the pullup or chin-up, if that’s how far they’d like to get in a single training session).

Part of me hopes that one of you reading this will actually go on to exceed the record I set in September 2020. Seeing someone who has learned from my own journey go on to achieve something really special in their own right would probably be the ultimate achievement and reward for me, as a fitness coach.

What I have learned in the four years that I had obsessed over the pullups and chin-ups world records was that there’s a hard way to progress to doing higher reps and there’s an easier way. The easier way will cause less damage, will be more enjoyable and will ultimately take you further. But the easier way is also less intuitive and requires much more discipline and patience – initially.

The average person instinctively tries to do as much as they possibly can in training. That’s the ‘hard way’ I refer to. It feels like the right thing to do. But in terms of achieving superhuman levels of performance the hard way simply won’t get most people as far as they hope to go. The hard way only works for the most talented among us. And even for that elite group, they’d do much better if they actually used the easier way.

Perhaps I should refer to it as the ‘smart way’ rather than the easier way. It’s not actually easy. It just happens to be smarter. In fact, for most people, the smart way is actually harder to follow, because it requires strong faith in the methodology and the discipline to hold oneself back.

I hope my own experiences (and, ultimately, my achievements) – which have all been shared in this book – are sufficient to give my readers that faith which is required to follow the smarter path I have discovered to doing more pullups, chin-ups or, in fact, any strength or endurance exercise.

The first rule of the method I will share is that you only need to train once or twice a week. Once a week is sufficient to get you to around 1,000 reps if you build up properly. Twice a week will take you all the way to your full potential. And training more often will have no added performance benefits, but might get you injured.

So now let’s start from the very beginning and I shall outline a plan which will work for anyone, from those who cannot do a single pullup or chin-up to those who can do just a few reps. All you have to do is start the training plan at the henry point which matches your current ability…
