The Hero Handbook


I wrote this book 6 years ago when I was 25. I still believe a lot of it. But if you find anything in here that seems absolutely ridiculous and juvenile, let’s just blame it on youth, OK?

Enjoy. )


The Hero Handbook is a collection of principles, ideas, and action steps I’ve learned that will help you build a great body and live an amazing life. And I want to give it to you for free.

Thanks to the lessons I’ve learned from mentors, conversations with amazing people, and trial and error, I’ve developed a list of rules and action steps to live a remarkable life. And I put them all in the Hero Handbook.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How to define you really want out of life then setting a plan to get it
  • How to gain muscle or lose fat without sacrificing your social life
  • Tips on structuring your day to be the most productive
  • Strategies for getting out of debt and earning more money
  • Ways to have better relationships with friends and family
  • How to set goals that actually get done

Here’s what I’ve done over the past few years:

  • Gained 40+ pounds of muscle
  • Traveled in luxury for weeks at a time with only a small bag and my laptop
  • Paid off all my debt and started saving for adventures, fun stuff, and retirement
  • Started a successful small business
  • Consulted with multi-million dollar companies
  • Fostered great relationships with family and friends
  • Been featured in the LA Times, Men’s Health, and Men’s Fitness magazines
  • Sold my first book, Built for Show, and had it distributed around the world
  • Written over 100 articles for online and print magazines that have been read by millions of people
  • Trained with some of the best strength and nutrition coaches in the world
  • Started this blog where I connect with thousands of people (Over 135,000 last year alone) and help them become their own hero.

The Hero Handbook – Made For You

Look, I’ve spent the past few years reading, traveling, and doing. I’ve built the life of my dreams, and I did it with a lot of help. I’m offering that same kind of help to you.

I’ve had beers with people who say they want to get their shit together, build a great body, travel, and be successful.

They tell me all they need is a little direction. A little advice.

The Hero Handbook is my advice to them and to you. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
