Breaking news!

So it’s my fault, kinda. I did the math wrong on counting the number of “DVD titles” versus the number “hours of video instruction” in the original offer page.

But then Paul decided to ‘fix’ the problem by cramming even more videos onto those USB drives and in those download links. I won’t even bother trying to count them now.

Here is a hastily posted list of the videos that have been ADDED to the Black Friday deal. They are worth the price alone, but now they are all FREE and automatically INCLUDED when you order this year’s bundle…

That’s a ridiculous amount of new material for free.

At the usual $15.95 per DVD that’s over $3,065.25.

Keep reading. Don’t let that price scare you.

Who would buy every single DVD anyway? It would have to be a fantastic deal for you to get them all, right?

How much would it be worth to get all those DVDs?

How much stronger would you be after you watched just your favorites?

Paul has three options.

The first option is for old school people like me who want the actual physical DVDs shipped to their door.

(I’m old school. This is my 59th trip around the sun so I favor the actual DVDs.)

Option one has all of the videos delivered to you on a USB flash drive. Plug it into any computer and watch the videos.
