Ironsports Books
« on: December 26, 2012, 01:45:50 PM »
keep your eyes open if you ever go to  or are forced to go to flea markets, yard sales,or estate sales for these items.

Anvils horseshoes and cannons books volumes one and two by leo gaudreau 1975. Amazon sells them for 900 dollars for vol. number 1 and 1000 dollars for volume number 2. it's a real steal at 750 for a used copy of both. e-bay sells them for 1094 for both.

three more reps goes for 162 dollars for book one on amazon and 99 on e-bay though the copy looks kinda of beat up. book 2 goes for 72 on e-bay.  book 2 is unavailable on amazon book 3 is no where to be found.pictured is the condensed version not as valuable.

checked the hoffman books big arms, big chest etc go for about 20 or so dollars on e-bay. while john fair's book york muscletown usa goes for between 30 and 60 dollars, i don't think it's that rare as it was out not too long ago.

i have two of pearl's books both autographed. i never cease to be amazed how pearl condones sri chimmoy, but other than that pearl is a great guy and a true legend in the sport.

'3 more reps' means a rest pause set, 3 cheated/forced reps or what?

never really explained it's just the title given to the rick wayne  and george snyder books put out taken from actual seminars given at george snyder's gyms. i always took it as one guy just pushing another to try and squeeze 3 more reps out of a set.
