Welcome to Goblin's Gym !

Goblin's Gym - Strength and Health Secrets for Growing Goblins

The complete guide to getting STRONG in and around your cave:

  • Training Principles
  • Set up your Iron Playground
  • Goblin Anatomy
  • Exercises
  • Nutrition
  • Recovery
and much more...

So far, there are virtually no books about strength training written specifically for children and teens. This project aims to fill this glaring gap, and give readers a thorough introduction. The book will be illustrated in manga style. All exercises can be performed with a basic, affordable home gym setup, and should be easy to learn. The book is meant to be a long-term reference, and also touches on topics important for long-term development and health, such as biomechanics, posture, breathing and nutrition.

Seriously: If you drop heavy things on your foot, strain a muscle or otherwise mess yourself up, that is YOUR problem.
Use your head, listen to your body, and lift safely.
