Gain Any Skill Faster, Better and More Completely
than You Previously Thought Possible…
It all started when I heard a man named Pavel Tsatsouline state that “Strength is a Skill”.
I read a book and became instantly stronger by applying its principles.
And I kept pushing the envelope. After years spent exploring what that statement really means and how to apply it, investigating various forms of training and mental mastery, this book takes that idea to a whole other level.
Strength isn’t just about training hard. Far from it. In fact, when you understand just how much SKILL enters the equation you’ll be able to get far stronger than you ever imagined possible.
Even if you’re just working to lift a heavy barbell…skill is involved.
And if you do anything a bit more complex or highly technical gymnastic type skills, how you practice is ultimately the determiner of your success.
If you’re reading this my guess is that I don’t have to convince you. Instead I’m just going to layout everything you’ll be gaining from this book:
Chapter 1 – How One Meta-Skill Gives You More Potential Than Any Individual Skill
- Learn about the difference between Bad Practice vs. Good Practice
- The art of practicing practice…which can than be applied toward any aim
- How knowledge can get in your way
- Another Meta-Skill worth Mastering besides Practice…
Chapter 2 – Strength is a Skill and Movement Genius

The Result of 10 Years of Training and Thousands of $$$$$ Spent
If only I had this book when I got started training…it didn’t exist so I had to create it.
Its the result of studying not just top trainers and coaches in the field, but going far outside of it like using the models and techniques of Neuro Linguistic Programming to dive deeper into great practice.
“Practicing Strength and Movement is not only full of actionable information, but extremely motivational. I felt inspired as I read page to page constantly stopping to take notes and think about the concepts Logan puts forward. The best example of results I have seen since reading this book is the other day in my Science and Application of Exercise lab several friends and I were goofing off and challenging each other to different yoga moves. My friend asked if I could do a handstand- which I hadn’t trained in months. I used the activating muscle memory I never had exercise- plus for good measure I added in some second person visualization and actually set a handstand PR! I recommend this book to anyone who wants to increase their strength or skill in just a few moments and for the rest of their lives.”
“Logan’s guide teaches how we learn new skills and what happens physically below our surface when it happens. His guide shows something your parents, teachers and coaches never told you! I use this guide’s guidelines and drills personally for my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, submission/No-Gi wrestling, MMA and other physical culture training. It’s now much easier for me to learn new techniques and lift heavier weights in the gym. Everything works for you too if you just ACT.“
– Tomas Valverde
“I’ve found the Practice book very interesting; I initially read it through and applied to doing a full dead hang pull up (palms pronated); I couldn’t do even one dead hang, and now I can do 3 consecutive (returning to full dead hang at the bottom)! Although I’ve worked hard on my pull ups in a variety of ways, I’m pretty sure the drills helped there! I’m a rock climber, fairly new at it (about 9 months) so the pull ups are a means to an end to get better. 😉 I’m about to re-read the book with 2 new goals in mind: dynamic moves in climbing (aka dynos, where you have to leap to catch a hold) and I’ve also recently taken up the harmonica, which is a great instrument! I’ll keep you posted on my progress in both of these!”
– Nick Scholfield
