Pacific Crossing Notes: a Sailor’s Guide to the Coconut Milk Run (Rolling Hitch Sailing Guides)

by Nadine Slavinski

Pacific Crossing Notes covers everything from preparation, weather, and safety to detailed information on the island groups of the Coconut Milk Run: the trade-wind route from the Americas to Australia. Along with information on clearing-in procedures, availability of supplies, and top anchorages and sights, this book covers Panama, the Galapagos Islands, Marquesas, Tuamotus, Society Islands, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia. Separate sections describe a trip down the US East Coast, the Panama Canal, New Zealand, and Australia (including tips on selling a boat there for a one-way trip). This guide strives to balance facts with flavors, making it a book to keep you company during the countdown to your own passage as well as a practical guide to pull out as you face each successive landfall in the voyage of a lifetime – and all for less than the price of a single issue of a sailing magazine!

Squat Like A Powerlifter: The Beginner’s Guide to The Perfect Squat (Powerlifting For Beginners Book 2)

by Joe Ironman Norman

Before you buy please note that those who have already purchased or plan to purchase “Monster Squat”, DO NOT PURCHASE this guide. The material contained within this guide is covered in Chapter 1 of the book. You can send it as a gift to others if you like. Thanks!

Whether you are into crossfit, weight training or just starting powerlifting and want to improve your back squat, this guide is for you.

There are all kinds of techniques and ways to squat, but the best way to learn is from the experts and those people are the powerlifters. Powerlifters have worked for years to fine-tune techniques that enable them to squat weights that most people in the world couldn’t imagine would be possible. Not only will these techniques get you stronger, but they will minimize the risk of injury.

In my first book “Monster Squat”, I discuss these techniques and everything else it takes to squat those impossible weights. What has recently come to my attention is that there are many people out there that are just interested in learning how to squat properly. My book is mostly geared toward advanced lifters but Chapter 1, “Squat 101”, was written specifically for beginners.

I decided to take Chapter 1 of my book and make it into this guide. What you will find inside are the following topics:

– How To Squat

– Text Book Definition

– Setting Up

– Bar Position And Grip

– Foot Placement

– Unracking/Backing Out

– Top Three Powerlifting Techniques

– Racking The Weight

When you are finished with this guide you will have the knowledge to be able to not only squat properly, but to squat like a powerlifter. After that, if you are ready and think you can handle it, check out “Monster Squat”, and learn what it takes to squat impossible weights.
