Evolution

The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You've Always Wanted
by Joe Manganiello | 272 pages

As the sub-title suggests, this book is a guide to breaking down the mental walls that get in the way of building the body (and life) you’ve always wanted. Part motivational manifesto and part training manual. Big Ideas we explore include finding our extra gear, the magic # that can change your life (hint: 3:59.4), how to run a sub-4-minute mile (and achieve all your other goals), being strict + flexible and going from a 2 to an 8 by thinking less and doing more.


“Changes can happen fast, but understand that this book goes much deeper than merely telling you which exercises to perform and the right foods to eat. This program is all-encompassing: mental, physical, and spiritual. What good is teaching you the physical side if you’re not supplied with the mind-set you need to push past the barriers and process the frustration that typically holds people back? I want this to be the book that changes your life. I’m living proof that it can be, because what’s contained here completely transformed mine.”

~ Joe Manganiello from Evolution

Gentlemen: This book will inspire you to train harder (and live harder). If you’re like me, your Ladies will enjoy the pictures. (At least mine did. Hah!)

Joe Manganiello is one of the stars of the Magic Mike movies, which, I’m proud to say, is one of the first movies Emerson watched as a baby. (Um, yah. It’s true.)

As the sub-title suggests, this book is a guide to breaking down the mental walls that get in the way of building the body (and life) you’ve always wanted.

It’s super intense and not for everyone—which is what makes it so great. Part motivational manifesto and part training manual. The first half is all about getting our minds right and the second half features a complete workout program. (Get a copy here.)

We’ll focus on some mental-wall-destroying Big Ideas from the first part. I’m excited to share a few of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!!
