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

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

and much more...

So far, there are virtually no books about weight training written specifically for children and teens. This project aims to fill this glaring gap, and give readers a thorough introduction. The book is illustrated with manga style drawings. All exercises are easy to learn, and can be performed with a basic, affordable home gym setup. 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.
