In <em>Intervention,</em> Dan described how he evaluates adults and suggests course corrections to improve the basics. <br /><br /> He followed that with <em>Can You Go?,</em> where he addressed assessments trainers and coaches might use with their clients and athletes. <br /><br /> Now, in <em>Now What?</em> Dan loops back around to tell us what to do next. You’ve brought your clients up to the minimum standards. You’ve done your assessments. Now what? <br /><br /> That’s the question Dan answers in this book, the third installment of this series. <br /><br /> Dan John’s <em>Now What?</em> will help you determine the next steps in moving toward the goals of your clients and athletes. <br /><br /> “In <em>Now What?</em> Dan presents basic tools and training principles from his experiences as an athlete and coach, and applies them with experienced hands and through empathetic eyes toward the personal growth of his readers. It’s a reasonable approach to help us all reach our goals, bringing greater satisfaction while working through the process.” ~ Chip Morton <br /><br /> From Dan’s Introduction to <em>Now What?</em>: <br /><br /> The lessons learned about the road to success from elite athletes and performers can make everyone’s life better. From de-cluttering the inbox or letter pile with a shark habit, to applying pirate maps to ongoing health and fitness, most people can free up some mental space to focus on moving ahead with all of life’s goals and dreams. <br /><br /> Elite performers focus on the fundamentals and basics more thoroughly than the hobbyist. Elite performers keep their heads clear, carving out the clutter of life—both the important and the unimportant—with a scalpel. When needed, the elite focus on two- to twelve-week programs to shore up a weakness or some other issue. Elite performance is principle based. <br /><br /> Most of us can learn from this “carving of the clutter.” At times, we can follow a program, but most of the time, we can adopt a simple list of pirate maps for our fitness, health and longevity needs and goals. <br /><br /> The stumbling block of Now what? soon takes on a new meaning. After emptying the inbox and finishing the laundry, we can ask Now what? as the start of a new adventure, a new challenge. <br /><br /> In this book, I outline a simple quadrant showing how I teach elite performers the tools to deal with life, living and high-end achievement. And if you don’t think you’re an elite performer, I would like you to reconsider this. ~ Dan John

A lot of things can be said about John Cena, but “he’s helped other people become stars by losing at times when it would really matter” is not one of them. To the detriment of nearly everyone else on that roster since he claimed his first WWE World Title in 2005, Cena has not only beaten one would-be superstar after another, but done so in such convincing fashion that he pretty much destroyed any credibility they had coming into the match. Even on the rare occasions he does lose, he will then win the next two or three rematches, often against his conqueror and a couple of cronies, and with little to no apparent effort.<br /><br />Almost nobody has come out of a feud with Cena looking better, or even as good, as they did going in. This book tells the stories of the ones that really hurt, the guys who really could have meant something if they hadn’t been fed to the wood chipper called John Cena. Over the course of this book, you’ll get to relive every minute of the decade of frustration we spent watching John Cena tear through everyone thrown in his path, and think about what might have been. <br /><br />This book also contains the following bonus feature:<br />-The Few, The Proud, The Men John Cena Actually Put Over Strong
Development Hell: The NXT Story

Development Hell: The NXT Story, penned by former Power Slam scribe and WhatCulture.com’s own Michael Sidgwick, chronicles the history of WWE’s NXT brand.<br /><br />NXT has drew universal critical acclaim for its fan service fusion of old-school booking philosophies and progressive body of in-ring work - but the road to critical acclaim was arduous. When WWE destroyed its territorial and mainstream competition, the monolith had also annihilated the talent pool. Replenishing it was an unenviable task made all the more difficult by a blasé and counterproductive attitude and a curiously myopic direction.<br /><br />All of which is documented in a book covering the inauspicious beginnings of the dusty Stamford Farm warehouse and the murmurings of Memphis Power Pro, the halcyon days of Ohio Valley Wrestling, the infamous disaster of Deep South Wrestling and the literal lunacy that was Florida Championship Wrestling.<br /><br />The roots of the triumph that was NXT were toxic…

The theory of blocks in wing chun

The traditional approach, established in many Wing Chun schools, includes certain set of blocks. These blocks are thoroughly described; the distinct recommendations about observance of hands trajectories, angles of elbows deviation from the central line and relative to trunk, hands distance from the body and so on are given. <br />The distinct description of blocks with indication of exact parameters (angles, distances) is acceptable for the training process. But it becomes unacceptable in combat practice – it is impossible to execute the training variant of block completely with real attacking adversary. <br />The approach to the blocking techniques, offered in this book is blocks can be made by any blocking part of hand, on any trajectory depending on combat situation. At setting blocks the main accent is made on observance of Wing Chun main principles, but not the observance of concrete angles and exact trajectories that are not observed in combat practice in any case.

This is the true story of a fifty-year-old spinster schoolteacher who transformed her life, her legs and her lungs when she said yes to a surprising late romance and began an amazing twelve year series of two-wheeled journeys through five continents. <br /><br />Irene Shepard and her husband Burley, in tandem, plan their routes and itineraries, negotiate local laws and customs, and travel through fascinating landscapes. When things don’t go as planned, they rely on their collective wits, their patience, and the whims of fortune. <br /><br />Follow them up steep escarpments in Africa, into serendipitous encounters in South America and as they are tracked by military police in Egypt. As you read this book you will discover how biking gives a far more intimate perspective than travel in a car, bus or train, and your appetite will be whetted for travels of your own.

With contributions from more than 50 veteran bicycle travellers, the TomsBikeTrip.com Guide To Adventure Cycle Touring will walk you through every step involved in planning and undertaking a bicycle-mounted adventure of any length.<br /><br />Author Tom Allen has pedalled more than 20,000km in over 40 countries since 2007. His blog TomsBikeTrip.com is the number one UK cycle touring resource on the web. This, his fourth book, is a 277-page beginners' guide to two-wheeled adventuring. <br /><br />The guide covers a vast range of topics without getting bogged down in details. It presents a range of perspectives, rather than the “my way is the best way” approach you’ll find on countless websites and forums. And it is a manual of reassurance as much as a practical guide – because getting to the start line isn’t about knowing everything, but about knowing enough to begin.<br /><br />Whatever you’re planning and wherever you’re thinking of going – if it involves a bicycle and the spirit of adventure, this book has got you covered.
