I’ve had the pleasure of knowing brilliant strength coach and cheerfully foulmouthed verbal abuser of fitness industry idiocy Alwyn Cosgrove for many years. He whupped my ass when I was in California and then he bought me breakfast afterwards. (What a gentleman!) What you may not know about the Angry Scotsman is that not only has he produced some devastatingly well-researched critiques of fitness-industrial complex bullshit, as well as some wicked strong athletes, he’s flipped Death the bird too.
Three years ago Cosgrove survived a bout with cancer. Now he’s raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by selling Lift Strong, an 800-page manual compiled by some of the best brains in the biz. 100% of proceeds go to the L&L Society. April 6 is Lift Strong Day. As Cosgrove says:
a) We’ve got an awesome product available for only $24.99.
b) When people buy the product, all the money raised, every $24.99, goes to fighting cancer.
c) People are still fighting cancer and the only way they have a chance is through the donations of private individuals.
If you’d like to pick up a copy and help Cosgrove deliver another well-deserved kick in the nards, here’s your chance.
