My life of crime started early. I can remember stealing a red squirt gun from the local grocery store at the age of nine. As the years went by, my criminal actions grew bigger and bolder, which eventually led to juvenile hall then prison. Throughout my time while incarcerated, I noticed that the term “dog eat dog” or “only the strong survive” applied to daily life in jail, and it was usually the physically bigger that commanded respect, although there were many that had a great deal of respect because they had the bigger heart; however, it was often the ones that were in shape—or, as I like to say, “riot ready,”—who ran the show.
It wasn’t hard for me to make my choice. I have always been a leader, so I began to exercise vigorously every day. I also sought out any and all information concerning natural bodybuilding. Surprisingly, the more I learned, the more I realized how much I had previously known, and I also realized that the majority of people exercising didn’t have a clue as to what they were doing. So I decided to really get serious about learning the ins and outs of fitness. I took a correspondence course on fitness. I found advertisements in the back of a fitness magazine. That was when my body began to really transform. My body grew more in one year than it had grown in several years of exercise. It was very clear that knowledge is power!
Since then I have made it my mission to educate and motivate others. I know from experience that it’s not easy to get in shape while incarcerated. Prisons in California no longer have free weights, and the food is of low quality, but if you really want to get in shape, it can be done. In this book, I have simplified the complex world of fitness. By no means will it be easy, but it is very possible to get in the best shape of your life without weights or supplements. The term “no hurt, no big shirt” does apply because in order to build your body up, you must first break it down. If you are not willing to push your body to new limits, then you should put this book down now.
This book is only for people who are dedicated to fitness and willing to sacrifice to get it. If that’s you, then welcome to the world of fitness and health. In this book, you will learn how to exercise properly to achieve maximum growth while you obtain the shredded look coveted by many. You will also learn how to manufacture your own fitness equipment from ordinary objects found around your “cell” or your home. Finally, you will learn about proper nutrition. If you truly have the willpower and determination, then you will achieve amazing results.
