Summary

In the 1940s, before March Madness, the frenzy of the NBA draft, and multi-million dollar professional contracts, college basketball players played simply because they loved the game. This is the story of a group of kids who loved to play basketball: the underdog 1943–44 University of Utah men’s basketball team and their unlikely path to the NCAA championship, who came out of nowhere to upset heavily favored Dartmouth for the title.

    When billions poured into the neglected east London borough hosting the 2012 Olympics, a turf war broke out between crime families for control of a now valuable strip of land.  
     
    Using violence, guile and corruption, one gangster, the Long Fella, emerged as a true untouchable. A team of local detectives made it their business to take him on until Scotland Yard threw them under the bus and the business of putting on 'the greatest show on earth' won the day.  
     
    Award-winning journalist Michael Gillard took up where they left off to expose the tangled web of chief executives, big banks, politicians and dirty money where innocent lives are destroyed and the guilty flourish. Gillard's efforts culminated in a landmark court case, which finally put a spotlight on the Long Fella and his friends and exposed London's real Olympic legacy.

    Bodybuilding is hard, but not complicated… IF YOU KNOW HOW.  
    Why do only a selective few achieve the physique they desire? 
    There are 3 reasons why 9/10 people fail to build muscles:   Don't know how, or the information they apply is incorrect 
    which produces zero results, frustrations and giving up all together.Commitment. 
    3) Desire a muscular and cut physique but don't want to diet and exercise.  
         to prove point #1, ask yourself the question:                                                                                                
        "What happens inside the body to build muscles?"    
         
    If you don't know— SUPER! Because you will learn exactly 
    what builds muscles, and how to how to maintain muscle mass 
    in this short, yet powerful program. 
    Point #2 Commitment and consistency.    
    In order to commit to a program for 10-12 full weeks, 
    you must have a strong reason why.       
    "why do I want to build more muscle than ever before?" 
    And your answer(s) will lead to commitment and persistence.  
    And point #3 Without diet and exercise, 
    it's impossible to achieve a muscular physique!    
    NOTE: This program doesn't contain cutting out all carbohydrates, 
    or eating a bunch of animal meat, 
    or chugging down endless protein shakes that leads to 
    dead end after dead end results— none of this nonsense. 
    The information in this program has been tested on myself, 
    and others whom achieved outstanding results without harming the body. 
    This program may be drastically different than what you may be used to.  
    And requires the participant to spend $90 - $150 on NATURAL supplements  
    to successfully complete the 10-12 week program. 
    Be warned.    
    This program isn't a quick fix, requires 10-12 weeks of dedication, 
    and a lot of work from your part.    
    If you can't agree to the following:Spend $90- $150 on Natural supplements.Own a gym membership.Willing to lift weights.Make dietary changes.Dedicate yourself for 10-12 weeks to the program 
    (however you will experience results sooner)Approach the program with an open mind, be open to new methods,and new ideas.Try a new/different approach to bodybuilding.Enjoy a muscular physique permanently. 
    If you can't commit to the above points 100%, 
    DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PROGRAM. 
    This program is not for you. 
    If you agreed, prepare for a permanent change.
