Yes, you read that correctly. The next Total Anabolism book will be 4.0, not 3.2.

I started working on it last week and was inspired to skip past the next smaller update and create the next generation of THT!

In short, it’s going to keep you training and growing for YEARS to come. It’s a whole new monster!

I’m totally excited about this! 4.0 is GAME CHANGER! (it will still be free of course).

One important note: I’m dropping the name ‘Total Anabolism’ and instead referring to the book as Targeted Hypertrophy Training 4.0.

Why? Total Anabolism was the umbrella name for the original books, which contained details of both the MuscleHack workouts AND the nutritional strategies.

In newer versions I really wanted to flesh out all the details of this powerful training program, so I omitted the diet stuff and stuck to the training.

Version 4.0 will be titled ‘THT 4.0′ to more accurately reflect the content.

However, after its release I’m going to work on a free nutrition book too. This will of course contain details on both the MANS and GLAD diets. But the REALLY cool part is that I will be putting out FREE downloadable programs that do all that complicated math for you.

You won’t have to sit down with the “Katch-McArdle formula” anymore. Neither will you have to ask around for how much protein you should be getting. It’ll all be done for you! (Again, both this book and the programs will be free of charge).

Sometime in the future I will also get an ISBN (International Standard Book Number) and see if I can put out a physical book for you all to have.

The issue is this: I don’t want to make any money out of it, so how do you get a physical book made and shipped for free? I suppose people wouldn’t mind paying the postage and packaging if the book itself was free. Anyone know a publisher that likes to do charity?! 🙁

One way around this, and something I WILL be doing in the future, is putting THT out on Amazon’s Kindle for free. I know Amazon will charge me to do this but that’s cool. It means that Kindle users will be able to go to Amazon and get the THT book for free…and in a matter of seconds! (I’ve got a Kindle by the way and I highly recommend it, especially if you’re a book nerd like me).

Now to the big quesion: When’s THT 4.0 coming out? Because this is a bigger update than I had first anticipated, it will be available in May ’11, not April as I had originally planned for 3.2. Sorry to keep you guys waiting. I know you wanted it a little sooner but MuscleHack is just 1 guy – me.

It’s my job to keep you happy and I’m sure this baby won’t disappoint! 🙂

So that’s you all up to date!
