When Bozo Scofield sent me that long, rambling rant (about 10 of them from what I recall, or perhaps 15) a while ago, one of the comments he wrote was this.

Mad max comment to be sure …

“There is no way to prove you’ve sold X amount of books! Actually, I take that back. I bought one for my girlfriend and she hated it. (I think he said “didn’t like”, but I’m adding spice on, hehe) Please get a gorilla grip, Rahul and stop writing about me else I’ll “

… and the rest of it descended into such pure insanity that I had to shake my head and marvel.

At the insanity of his entire rant which bounced from one of the email to the other like space in his admittedly “empty” head (he doesn’t seem to have that thing we humans call a brain, or at least not that I know of).

Now, this isn’t about gorilla grips or non-existent girlfriend. (actually, it IS about the former. But we’ll get to that in a second).

First, why would I WANT to prove I sold X number of books?

Second, why would I care either way?

And third, the “2 followers” chant that this Bozo keeps referring to is actually something I sometimes wish I had (or 20, perhaps) as opposed to the 10 K or so people following me currently.

And growing, from what I can tell.

Why?

Well, I’ll reserve that bit for a marketing related email.

But let me just say that sometimes less is indeed more, and how!

And anyway, on to the main topic for today.

What is the ONE thing that really caused my grip to skyrocket beyond insane levels?

So much so that “mere mortals” ( I know, I know, but bear with me) shy away from gripping my hand and routinely call me out on my grip (in a good way)?

Well, it’s something that is revealed in Pull-ups from Dud to STUD within a matter of weeks. And to be kind and fair (not really, hehe), I put in the advanced book as well.

And no, I’m not going to reveal it for free in this email.

Despite the chorus of chants I’m sure to hear (I know, how dare I!!!) about “not providing value” or the righteous lot getting ticked off at “my fitness information not being helpful at all, since I say just do it!”

But hey.

More fuel to the fire.

This secret is NOT any of the following:

Doing a different type of pull-up. OR chin-up (which I don’t recommend). Or a combo therein.

It ain’t about flexing the intergalactic part of the inner forearm and doing endless curls that way with the pinkly ‘slightly more curled’ until your wrist falls off.

It ain’t about volume.

It ain’t about sets or reps.

It ain’t about mindless bozo like “workouts that last hours”.

It ain’t about pumping, toning, puffing, buffing, preening and posing.

About using thick bars (though that’s a great tip by itself right there).  

It IS this tho –

Something that everyone can do.

If you can do pull-ups, or even try, you can do it.

If you can hang on to a chinning bar, you can do it.

IF you have fingers, youc an do it (no, it’s not about how many fingers etc).

And here’s something it WILL Do –

It WILL SKYROCKET YOUR gains in ALL Exercises (upper body) through the ROOF. And your pull-up numbers too.

Not to mention give you that numbing, “kung fu” like grip I mention so often in Gorilla Grip.

And guess what you don’t have to be a Bozo, or Bozo Scofield, or his brother, or mother, or girlfriend to get it. Or anything related.

You just have to be dead on SERIOUS about grip strength my friend and getting down to brass tacks, and HOW.

HERE is where you can grab the entire compilation my friend. Do so now – truly worth it!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – And if you want to get better at pull-ups (and let’s face it, boys, boyo, brah, bruh, bro and everyone in between or not, we ALL Do) – HERE is the course that will get you from “dud” to STUD level very soon indeed (if you stop being lazy and just do what is required ie mentioned in the course) - - https://0excusesfitness.com/pull-ups-from-dud-to-stud-within-a-matter-of-weeks/

PS #2 – There is yet ANOTHER secret I mention in the first book, but NOT the second (As far as I can recall). See if you can find it. It’s something I talk about quite a bit here! ?

Monday, 19 October 2020 12:26

When that SHOE is on the other FOOT!

It BE a most satisfying feeling hehe.

And I mean that in terms of life, fitness, biz, and just about everything else you can think of.

And the satisfaction comes not from the final result so much as NOT having jumped the gun and been “impulsive before” (although I do recommend this, there is a time and place for it my friend).

What exactly do I mean?

Well, consider the following for one.

As the great Deng Xiaoping, the one and only Chinese leader I do admire despite his faults (the rest aren’t even fit to be called leaders to be quite frank) once said.

“Hide your strength, bide your time”.

And no, tom tommers. He did NOT say “to get rich is glorious”. His words were taken out of context in that regard.

And neither did he support the current shenanigans going on w.r.t. the PRC, and neither WOULD he have. In fact a speech he made to the contrary in the UN years ago pretty much says it all when he said “should China turn imperialist, then the PEOPLE of China should support the ROW in fighting against it” (I am paraphrasing – but that’s the sum and substance of it).

Anyway, what do I mean. Hehe.

What I mean is this my friend.

Let me give you an example.

Years ago, Bozo Schofield, who by dint of his silly dancing monkey job in China (while on the lam from the police) thought he “had it made”.

Between bouts of drug usage, going insane, being locked up temporarily (and kicked out on the road – literally – by friends who got tired of him taking advantage of them repeatedly – trust me – he literally took advantage in the worst way possible and then some), he found time to troll yours truly.

With racist memes and stickers. Apparently according to Bozo Scofield (his thinking which is nigh obvious) “Colored people have no place in the American South”.

Hmmm!

And this bozo over the years has been curiously following my every move, and getting his panties into a wad at just about everything I Write. Hehe.

I blocked him on social media. He gets around that block by “snooping” on my websites.

I blocked his IP. He used another. I blocked about 15 different email addresses he signe dup for when he emails me. He persists.

All this for a “one man show with no contacts”, as someone once so “adroitly” told me.

For someone “that would take 10 years to get his biz going” (as a friend told me).

For someone “with no ambition” (as another nutto once told me).

And the comment are numerous. The list of names I’ve been called is now past 900 (well past) and I look forward to hitting 1000. Not to mention I could write a BOOK on the comments themselves, and probably sell it too. Hehe.

As they say, you’re indeed defined more by your haters than those that “so called” support you while privately doing the very exact opposite …

Anyway, amidst all this, the satisfaction comes from not “living life on my own terms and enjoying it”.

Bozo Scofield’s latest claim is he’s a multimillionaire (apparently he was before he turned 40 or what not). When in actuality he doesn’t have two pennies to rub together, got kicked out of his Mama’s basement a long time, and is currently apparently in “public housing” and … ah, but need I continue?

I think NOT. LOL.

And yours truly?

I’m not a millionaire let alone multi. In fact, I’m quite far away from even selling a million books! ?

(But I’m getting there)

And to be honest, I’v never quite thought of becoming a multi-millionaire (even without the multi).

Sorry, Glyn the Bozo Scofield and all the rest who must be smacking their chops with glee at the statement above.

But it doesn’t really interest me. If it does happen, well andgood.

What interests me is my freedom, and being able to live life on my own terms as I choose.

No 50, 60, 70, or 80 hour work weeks. No silly monkey jobs. No silly jobs which you get kicked out of for stating facts as they ARE …

And certainly no mooching up to your girlfriend or SO hoping she’ll give you money for your latest beer blast (on your lonesome, if you’re Bozo Scofield) and then whining about it when she doesn’t, and getting kicked out on the road in China, and running to the cops because youre too much of a you know what to to admit you stole quite a significant sum of dough from (again) you know who…

So anyway.

The person with zero contacts, and the one that “never made it” is the one being followed, trolled and way worse.

And he’s happy about it, hehe. In fact he THRIVES on it!

And as my friend from the Marines recently told me, and he’s SPOT ON.

“Rahul, you should consider that a compliment. Obviously he feels threatened by you (they – sic)”.

And they did way back then as well. The racism only started after this Bozo Scofield got to know of ONE business of mine, hehe.

And none of this would happened if I had “tom tommed” things before they happened.

None of this would happened if I claimed to have followers before I hit the mark I’m at now (and it grows by the day – how funny eh? ?).

And so forth.

Hide your strength, bide your time.

Ignore this advice at your own peril, and YES, it applies to fitness too!

I didn’t write those books on pull-ups before I could do them myself, and how!

I didn’t write 0 Excuses Fitness before I got into the best shape of my life (and no, fat doesn’t equate to ‘strong” or “big” – sorry).

(Neither does my “strength” when I was admittedly “thick” obscure the fact I was FAT at a certain point in time – this is for a certain selective reader, or perhaps a whole bunch (I could start the name of the bunch with “L”)).

And so forth.

GET the results first, and then talk about ‘em.

As Napoleon Hill famously once said, tell the world what you’re going to do, but SHOW IT FIRST!

Actions count brah. That’s just as simple as it gets.

Take this little gem and apply it if you so choose, and watch your life start to change before your very eyes!

Last, but not least, to the person who I recently had an agreement with “not to mention” (so long as you don’t hound me) – fair enough.

But neither were your “disclosures” incidental nor were they “unintentional”.

And I’ll reveal ALL in a future email.

For now, stay tuned for the next email – contains an important tip or two about LOWER ab fat!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – Apparently Bozo Scofield decided he’d copy my email style as well. How coincidental, eh. LOL.

PS #2 – If you’re truly interested in getting in the best shape of your life with NO excuses, then start by investing in and USING the System right HERE: https://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/

(No it isn't cheap. No, I'ts not for free. No, I won't give it you at 10% of the price if you "just want to lose 10 kgs". Yada, nada schnada. You are either IN - or out - it's as simple as that, brah (sis)). 

…. that you need to avoid at all costs, I should say.

What do I mean.

Well I've written tomes about the “how dare he!” thoughts I get and pick up from TONS of people out there familiar with my writings. And my work. And more! ;)

 You truly ARE defined more by your haters than thos ethat love you and buy from you, and if you have any doubt on this, just look at any successful person my friend (anyone you consider successful) and you'll quickly see the TRUTH behind this statement.

 Now, back to it.

 Ever notice when people make the following statements …

 "Oh, those politicians! They're all hand in glove! They're all in cahoots!”

 "Oh, those big business men, they're all way out of our league! All in cahoots!”

 And so goes the mournful chant, accompanied by a “deflated” feeling on the part of the person saying it, and then of course IRRITATION.

 And ignorance of the fact (well, consciously, but not subconsciously!) that they themselves are as far from said person's success as I am from Mars right about now at the time of writing this, for one …

 Now, note two things.

 The above is correct.

 And the above two statements … well, in theory they may or may not be right.

 That ain't the point though.

 Point is the emphasis on the word “them” (or those).

 People making statements like these put themselves into a different bracket from the above subconsciously.

 Am I saying dont use the word?

 Not at all.

 It's there in the English language for a reason.

 But it's the WAY in which that word is used!

 As if these people are God, or someone the mourners can't emulate!

 Of course they can.

 The fact is, most people are too LAZY to buckle down to brass tacks and DO what it takes to get to where they want to be, rather preferring to focus on social media shmedia, “follow” their favorite people, and in general do everything but that what is required to get THEM to the point that THEY can …

 …. ah, but they don't even believe they can!

 And therein lies the crux of the issue, and why most people in this here world do NOT succeed (and no, it ain't their “fault” either in many regards).

 We've been fed a crock of shit my friend.

 We've been all spoonfed the crock of “getting a good job”, for one, and living a steady life, but what about the virtues of “doing your own thing” and the satisfaction you get from finally getting there, not to mention being able to make LIFE MARCH TO YOUR OWN TERMS?

 How often do we hear that?

 No. We don't.

 We hear “oh, you have no ambition! You can never do it!”

 And being our minds believe anything that we're told enough number of times, (subconscious mind that is, and therein lies the SEAT of accomplishment and true power) …

 Hey, look buddy.

 These guys were the same as YOU once.

 Donald Trump for one has been broke and has FAILED way more times than he has succeeded and sit down with him and have a chat, and he'll be the first one to tell you.

 Jeff Bezos was nothing but an unemployed office worker who was told NOT to create Amazon when he first started!

 And this holds true for ANY successful person. I cannot remember the other example I had in mind this morning, but the above two should suffice.

 It aint about you're not in their league. Anyone can be, if they try!

 When I hear statements like the above, incredulousness jumps to my mind, not because “they aren't in cahoots” necessarily.

 They might be.

 But because of how the person says the word “they” …

 As if they themselves can never get there.

 YES – YOU CAN!

 The human mind if harnessed correctly can perform MIRACLES my friend. Nigh on miracles, and this is as true as the sunlight shining outside the window in the late afternoon as I sit here writing this …

 (Nah, not really. I'm in my cave. Hehe)..

 And yeah, it applies to FITNESS too.

 “You look like am ovie star!”

 “You're super fit!”

 “I wish I had great genetics like you!” (newsflash, the idiots who say this have NO clue; it's the exact opposite!)

 And while I've written about all that before, the MENTALITY of the person saying this is something I wanna mention today.

 “I can never get there”, person is subconsciously thinking (if he's the lazy loser slob type).

 The DOERS, on the other hand look at me. Or anyone they consider to be at a high level.

 They say NOTHING in most cases.

 They get down to brass tacks. They invest in the PRODUCTS they need. And they just DO IT.

 Pretty sure, they're at the same level themselves, or better in some ways!

 And thats what it's truly about my friend.

 You have to stop making excuses to yourself my friend.

 You have to stop trying to convince yourself that you “cant”.

 And most of all, you gotta stop bickering and JUST DO IT (one reason I love Trump so muchj, and one reason that while I didnt even mention politics etc before 2020, I do now, and a lot, because he's a goddamned businessman, not a politician, and he gets thing DONE – high energy, high OCTANE!!)

 If you're too fat to do pull-ups, then just lose weight my friend.

 I dont care if that means you starve or don't drink beer. I don't care if it means the latest keto-sheeto diet, or what not. I don't care if you feel tired and rundown. I don't give a shit about any of that.

 What I care about is you getting down to brass tacks and just doing it my friend.

 Believe me, simple approaches work the best, and this one approach will reap RICH dividends, if you just let it!

 And thats that for now. Back soon!

 Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

 PS – Again, make sure to GET ON THE fitness train right HERE my friend. Truly the best fitness investment you'll ever make and one that just flat out works!

 PS #2 – Ah, I just remembered. I was going to talk about Herschel Walker!

 Charles who moaned about my info being useless said the following about him.

 “But he's got great genetics! Muscle sticks to him like shit on a ...”

 (Um no it doesnt brah. And he's said it himself plenty of times. He's a hard gainer with terrible genetics!)

 “He's 75 lbs bigger than you!”

 (This when doing a discussion on how according to Charles big guys couldn't do pull-ups.)

 (I mean, really. Not only does it have nothing to do with the price of fish in Germany for one, but it's a ridiculous statement to make anyway in the context of the discussion. Big small, yada, nada, schnada. Who cares! Just get off your ass, lose that weight, and then just do it BRAH!)

 … And Yes, you CAN get to his levels if you believe, but you won't, but this is not for you, it's for the others reading that can, and WILL BELIEVE!

 PPS – Be sure and pick up the PATHBREAKING course on pull-ups rigt here. The latest edition is PEPPERED with tips that will BLAST your performance sky high and right through the gym roof. You'll never want to gym shym again once you get good at PULL-UPS!!!!!!!!!

Yes.

Pet peeve indeed, and it’s one of the reasons that I (for years) haven’t bothered to get on the phone with ANYONE, because it’s just so damned AGGRAVATING.

And the problem has just gotten accentuated these days. I don’t know what it is with a lot of folks these days, but “leech” is the term that comes to mind.

Literally nothing going on in their own lives, and an attempt to “vicariously” live through “this interesting person” (yours truly) and that is fine, but only until a level!

Hey, I get it.

I have an unconventional lifestyle. Some say bozo like. Some say rock star like. Most say “I wish I had this kind of lifestyle” And so forth.

And as my fans grow globally (and I’m very grateful to them), so does the other category I mentioned above, and I’m grateful to them too, albeit for a different reason, hehe.

This afternoon I posted something on my Facebook account about the PRC’s insistence on going to war with everyone in the world.

One fine reader piped up. Again. He’s asked me the same question and in the same irritation manner about a bazillion times already via PM, mind you.

“Will they go to war with India?”

My first response was to tell him, dude, I’m not exactly sitting on the cabinet of Xitler am I.

And even if I were. I mean really. Dude. You’ve asked me this about a dozen times, and it ain’t nothing you can’t research yourself and find out.

Basic common sense. And when someone says it like is with the right energy, along come the LEECHERS to leech off your time, and energy.

For freeeeeeeeeee ….

“I’m just worried, so I ask”, he replied in an equally lame attempt to not address the point I made above.

“Worried? More like bored”, I laughed.

“Have a whiskey on me”, I quipped. “Done!”

And this sort of thing happens all the time, more so these days.

Remember the lady who messaged me out of the blue wanting to “just lose 10 kgs, so pay 10% of the price for the 0 Excuses Fitness System”?

I bet you do!

I told her no. Figured that woul be that.

But it wasn’t. It led to questions. More questions. More incessant pestering and badgering. And more rubbish from a person that neither had any intention of buying, even at 10% nor any will to improve herself.

And it is THESE energy leeks that irritate me the most, my friend.

Yes, I spelt “leek” correct!

It isn’t so much the annoyance, the waste of time and so forth, or the repetitive nature of certain BS questions.

It isn’t so much becoming (these people want it) a “question box” for bored idiots (Bozo you know who comes to mind) with nothing better to do than to sit and home and twiddle their thumbs all day, aimlessly either Tom Tomming or listening to the sh-news …

It is that they are looking to get more and more and more from you – for FREE!

“Rahul, please provide your opinion on this!” went a comment on Twitter (apparently I was supposed to judge a T shirt someone made, and for what?).

You guessed it.

Zilch. Zip. Nada. Zero. Ughhhhhhh.

Folks, there ain’t no gravy train here. I’ll tell you that much. ?

You either got it or you don’t, and if you GOT IT, truly have what it takes to succeed and make the best of yourself, then you don’t ask meaningless endless questions. (all questions are answered on the site anyway for those that bother to READ).

You pull out that credit card, and you get the product – and you get to WORK.

That’s just how it goes my friend. Anything else puts you on either the “ugh” or (growing by the day) BLOCKED list – and for a damn good reason!

Ok, off my soapbox for now, but it’s TRUE. Hehe.

Last, but not least, seems that old favorite “Advanced Hill Training” is going GANGBUSTERS these days with people being stuck at home yet again (did we ever leave, Ihear you asking, and I know. I know!). If you’re looking to lose weight RAPIDLY, grab this course NOW.

And that’s that from me. Back soon!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

You have to take the long view

And it is TRUE.

I don’t care if youre thinking life, or fitness, or business, this applies. And how!

Recently, a friend of mine commented on a new business venture I started a couple of months ago.

Actually, I should say an “offshoot” of an existing business, really. To be honest. Pun intended. In more ways than ONE! ?

Maybe I just started doing things differently (and remember, I KEPT doing them the old way too).

“Hmm”, he noticed (best intentions at heart).

“Why do you want to change things up if they aren’t failing?” he asked curiously. “Why the new slant?”

Well, I didn’t change things I replied. I merely added a new twist to it, a new business offshoot as it were …

More potential, more opportunities.

Yesterday, this person asked me how much money I made from the “new way” and old.

Old? Its going great, I said.

“And the new way” he eagerly asked.

ZERO, I replied.

And I meant it.

That new business, or offshoot of an existing one has netted me a grand total of ZERO as yet, and probably won’t net me anything until next year, recession or not, Chinese plague or not.

You could have deflated a balloon, so disappointed he was …

Listen, my friend.

Some of the most successful businesses were started when the person starting them was at rock bottom, and then some – or during some of the worst recession or global depressions ever.

I don’t care what your situation is right now, but it boils down to this – when you really, really gotta do something you’ll either sink or swim (as a former boss of mine said).

Might sound harsh, but the tough times are what separate the doer from the dreamers my friend, and the achievers from the has beens.

And you gotta take the LONG view here.

If you’re starting a biz in the depression, for instance (such as now, which is easily the most turbulent time of our recent lives … and EASILY a time that could lead to another massive World War (despite what the nuts on the left think)), then profit?

Forgetttt about it, my friend.

Unless you’re already established, or selling something essential, it ain’t gonna happen and even then it’s dicey and up in the air.

Down the line though, slowly …

Thing is, most people don’t GET to that point.

People don’t understand that businesses that LAST make SACRIFICES, often times for YEARS that the average joker isn’t willing to make.

Note I said WILLING, not able. Everyone is able. Where there is a will, there is indeed a way. For everything!

Often times, way back in the day I had to choose between putting food on the table and keeping my businesses going.

Not an easy choice, is it?

But it’s a choice we all face when we START something, and often times down the road as well.

It’s a tough choice, my friend, but you have to make that business a priority (no, I don’t mean don’t put food on the table, but I mean, that biz has got to come before anything else).

It is only IF you have this mindset that you can progress, and eventually succeed – lasting success, not a fly by night and “rapid” success that most people hope for.

Fitness wise, same thing.

Often times, while the most rapid succeses come within days or weeks (and usually they do if you’re doing things right) … the LASTING successes come from YEARS of hard training done right.

Muscle memory comes from YEARS of hard training done right!

So does your overall conditioning, how quickly you bounce back from injuries down the year, how quickly you get back in the groove, and so forth.

There was a point I didn’t do pull-ups for ages.

Months, actually.

But when I started doing them again?

‘Twas like I had never stopped.

Sure, took me a few days to get back to 100 pull-ups per workout.

That’s a FEW DAYS to get back to something I hadn’t done for months, and something (a level) most people won’t reach in their entire LIFETIME.

Mostly for lack of real trying…. (and of course, hiding behind the big guy can’t do pull-ups silly excuses).

And so forth.

Take the long view, my friend. That’s how it works both in terms of life – and business – and relationships – and fitness – and damn near everything you dabble in!

Unless you’re Bozo Schofield, of course, but even he seems to have taken the long view to becoming the most useless and most ignored “troll of the century”, hehe. Or unless you aspire to him which I highly doubt!

Best

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – Apply for life coaching right HERE if you so choose my friend.

So, it BE Wednesday in this here neck of the woods wher eI’m at.

And it BE  a great, great day. Some call it Hump Day.

And probably rightfully so in more ways than one given what I just got done doing, and no, before you ask, neither is the training nor what I just got done part of what you’re thinking, or anywhere near it.

My other list on the other sites may think something in that regard, and they’d be RIGHT. ?

But here’s the point.

What I said above is one of the best visualization techniques ever, especially if you’re doing tough workouts.

And WILL catapult your results through the ROOF, my friend.

Lets say you’re embarking on a tough tough workout (for you, lets say) of 100 pushups.

Your previous best was 50 in one workout, and that was ONE Time . . .

So you’re aiming at 100.

You get to 30.

The fatigue kicks in. The sweat drips off your brow. And you think about quitting.

“OK, lets just make it to 50. Then we’ll see!”

And yet, a better way of looking at this is as follows.

“I’ve made it to 50! That’s half out of the way!”

Way back in the day, I did this when I followed that punishing and grueling hill climb regiment I so love.

Let me tell you something, boyo. It ain’t easy for one climbing up steep hills in the middle of the day in Guangdong style heat and humidity, and that’s made it to the book on fitness recollections as well for a reason, but the point is it ain’t easy.

Often times, I’d use visuals to get myself through.

Sometimes I’d compare my slow (and last) walk up the hill to the Undertaker’s as he slowwwwwlllly walks to the ring.

And other times, after I got done with 2 climbs, I’d talk to myself.

That’s two done, Rahul. Just two more left!

I don’t know why, but this gave me a huge, huge mental boost and I needed it. Trust me!

And the same thing applies to you, regardless of what workout you do or if you pump weights or do bodyweight or do that “other” workout (well, not really in that case, hehe).

Anyway, more on training half bore you ask ?

Well, the Bourne Series comes to mind again! One of my favorite movies ever is the Bourne Identity (Supremacy is by far the best in my book) and while the book is much better obviously, Matt Damon doe a stellar job of portraying an ex CIA assassin whose “mind is broken” (memory loss, whatever).

ONLY Damon could have done it. And I’ve written tomes about him and the movie and his TRAINING for the movie as well before!

And as the Identity starts, we see him doing pull-up on a wooden ledge on a boat.

Pull-up purists including yours truly may have a thought here.

That he’s neither going all the way up nor all the way down, which NO, I do NOT recommened.

I do not recommend kipping either and have said why.

But other hand . . .

If you’re already cranking out 5 pull-ups per set, for instance, but can’t quite seem to get to the magic 10 a set number, then you may want to try half pull-ups – on occasional.

Go all the way down, and pull-up, but only half (even if you can do a bit more) and then hold, and then go DOWN again, all the way.

That’s ONE way of doing it.

And count the half rep as a rep, because you’re doing it AFTER your max 5 rep count (note – do NOT do it before you max out).

Believe me now, and trust me later, you’ll benefit GREATLY from adopting this one technique into not just your pull-up workout, but overall workouts.

And that’s that for now (yes, again). Back soon! (yes, again).

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – Take a gander at the 0 Excuses Fitness System, plenty more such great, great tips including one on how to recover QUICK when you’re out of breath right HERE.

. . . but especially on social media I should say.

A while back I wrote that “infamous” piece about how I would not learn Chinese if you paid me to do so. And believe me, I MEANT EVERY WORD!

Perhaps that is why the article was such a resounding success in many ways i.e. came straight from the heart, and was true.

Believe me, my friend.

People can see past the BS, and while they may or may not like you (or hate you in my case) for saying it like it is, they WILL follow you to the ends of the earth to hear what you got to say if you follow that one rule above and KEEP IT REAL.

Ah, Keeping it Real in China. What a “nice” group that used to be before I gave it up. Lots of rants in there that would do just great printed out on a roll of toilet paper, as Uncle Bob once said about our communication (daily (hourly, actually, if not more) emails while bored shitless at the factories we worked at – long story).

But really.

That one article generate SO MANY comments that at one point I was literally hearing my phone beep every second. Believe me now and trust me later, yes, it did tick people off a lot.

I posted it in a China Facebook group of all things . . .

The irony. How dare I eh.

Well I did.

And the beeping is an exaggeration in that my phone  is always on silent mode no matter what. But the point stands, as do the notifications I got.

And guess what, they weren’t all hate and the usual “your racist” nonsense (it still befuddles me as to how Im racist by choosing not to a learn a certain language but for the mainlanders it’s their way or the highway, much like the liberal lunatic left, so that don’t surprise me one bit().

Some of the comments actually made perfect sense including some of the responses to the “hes a racist” chants which I’ve covered before.

And I did respond to a couple of comments on that thread (no more tho).

But really, mi amigo.

Its far better in most cases to NOT get into a pissing contest on social media.

In most cases.

In that case, it was warranted to a degree, but even then, I eventually took the fight back to my own den. My own lair (which most of those people that comment up a storm are too LAZY to create or foster).

The same type of people that badger you incessantly with idiotic questions and yet when you ask THEM questions about their own life or situation, they never reply.

“Will India defeat China?”

“China’s a powerful country! Can India defeat it?”

(just a couple of replies to a recent post and the guy got on FB Messenger for them)

Look, dude. Get on Google for fuck’s sake and then Google it .  . .

And when I asked him a question, of course. The question that mattered.

Resounding and ringing silence so loud it could have woken the dead.

As TEMB (who for whatever reason chooses to call himself “Eric”, hehe) said “no answer is often an answer with these nuts”.

And it is, in many ways.

I can’t stand people like that.

Nor those who say “I won’t discuss it publicly” and then pester me with 1000 voice notes for something that could be said in writing in one paragraph (usually the voice them justifying the non-existence of their point to themselves if that makes sense!).

Or those that say “my friends might see”, but I agree with you privately.

Dude (or lady) at least have the balls to say it publicly. There are extenuating circumstances on occasion, but far less than what most people make out to be, and the above two cases ain’t it for sure.

And yes, this email is mostly MARKETING, and I’ve already given you many different marketing tips, but before I cover the why, here’s something else.

Aside from fitness, I’ve made no bones about the fact that I AM a damned good marketer even if I say so myself, and CAN AND WILL Teach those interested tricks that will double, triple or even quadruple your sales in ANY Economy if I say so myself.

Believe me, if I can do it (and here’s proof) then YOU can too.

IF  you’re serious.

And if so, I can help . . .

But back to it. Because . ..

It accomplishes zippo for one.

Not only are you getting nothing out of that effort (and in most cases heartfelt comments with emotion behind them) but you’re rarely if ever going to convince someone to change their POV on most things.

That emotion might be best spent doing what I am right now, or with your SO (or on him or her) or other things . . .

. . . Things that matter.

IN certain cases, yes. Perhaps getting into a bit of a fistfight online may help if the person youre attacking has a massive audience.

But even then perhaps not . . .

. . . And if you’re Bozo Schofield for one that claims . . . ah, but we’ll get there.

These are the two main reasons why other than waste of time, and one last “monkey in the wrench”?

Or was it spanner in the works, hehe.

It’s well known that a lot of people hate my very guts, and existence. Much like Major General Michael once told me years ago “Rahul you hate my guts don’t you” (I didn’t, really!) . . .

But curiously enough it is these people who can’t resist following yours truly.

“lets see what he’s got to say”

(because deep down inside they know I say what is TRUE and what I say makes perfect SENSE).

“Lets get a couple of tips for freeeeeeee!”

And so forth.

And as the liberal left no doubt latches on to this post with renewed vigor (believe me, I might as well not post it on social media as people are going to look for what Rahul Mookerjee is sayin anyway even if the social media post isn’t out there) hey – I welcome it! ?

Go for it!

Oh, and if you’re Bozo Schofield on drugs trying to convince me “I have no followers and can’t market worth a damn” with a sum total of two followwers on Twitter yourself, one being an alter ego of you, and the other being ..  I don’t know, but the profile pic is so weird I won’t even go there … well, please  Glyn.

Do it if you must.

But really, you’re making a massive fool out of yourself.

Which you are, anyway, so I suppose youre being honest in that regard and kudos for that! ?

And there endeth this particular rant. The haters will find reasons to hate and the DOERS that GET SOMEWHERE IN LIFE will LISTEN – and learn

If I were you, I know which Id choose!

PS – If you want to apply for life coaching, send in your application right here. Be aware that I’m usually dealing with several things at once, so if you’re not serious or if I get a bad vibe off your email, you’ll be blocked pronto. You can wail and moan all you like later, but sorry, I won’t be unblocking you . . .

PS #2 – Here is where you can pick up the 10 Commandments of Successful Sales (that works in ANY economy bar none).

PPS – A certain poster who specifically asked not to be named and so I wont name him wrote in to say I was a pompous ass for saying “masks aren’t necessary” and I didn’t “value human life”. Yada, nada, schnada. All I can say to that? Ho hum! Hey, pally. China spread the plague and then of course disappeared leaving the ROW to deal with it, and guess what, hiding at home ain’t gonna make it go away. Might as well man up and get rid of it the natural way which is to ignore it and eventually you’ll see it as just the flu or other common diseases. Really, my brother. All it is is a version of the super flu, and that’s it!

PPS #2 – Donald Trump is back in office (I mean, back in the White House). Yippee!! Here’s to the one and only Trumpinator!

One of the comments in the lengthy rants I recently received to a post about pull-ups - - and one I did not address as yet is this.

“Your fitness info is hardly pathbreaking!”

Now, for context, the rants were LONG. Drunken rants that came straight from the heart, and while I thanked the poster for his thoughts, I will say this – a chuckle or two (or more) escaped me at the inanity of it all and the hidden point of it all (NOT exercise related) that he was and is still completely missing . . .

. . . which led to two emails of course, lengthy ones.

Andt hose are posted on the blogs for posterity’s sake . . . do a search and you’ll find ‘em. My dips yesterday after a loooong time have left my chest fibers extra sore, so I’m going to be lazy in this regard for once andnot post links etc!

But really.

Most people that are “slim and skinny” or eeven “in shape” can’t do a single pull-up, my friend. It wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that the vast majority of adult men and practically ALL The pumpers and toners and so called one rep weight pounders couldn’t even begin to hang on to the pull-up bar for any length of time.

And they’d probably tear a tricep or worse if they tried a pull-up.

Weight loss is an issue for most people out there. For years for some!

Despite being told how to lose weight most people CANNOT do so in the manner they’d really, really like.

Let’s face it, bro. We all want that V taper and “chiseled look”. That “packed” chest. That back that gives of the impression of doing one pull-up after other (as Marc told me “that V shape to your back”!).

And it’s when we can’t get it (because we’re either too LAZY or just don’t know how) that the comments come in thick and fast, and here’s an honest and straight from the heart FACT.

I enjoy ‘em all, so please DO keep ‘em coming!

But really. Not pathbreaking? Losing kgs of weight in a single day, often times hours after a workout - - not pathbreaking? Especially when being on a diet that most would consider AWFUL . . .

I guess not for the nutzos out there who’ll find any excuse to justify their “slobbenneess”.

Is that even a word. Hehe.

Anyway, point of all this?

Well, one is obvious.

And the second is this – I’ve been seeing (over the past few months) a rash of bozos that have been parading around town as “fitness experts” (and for whatever reason, teaching “yoga for weight loss”).

Well, first thing you know, yoga ain’t all it’s touted to be, and I’ve written about that before, and certainly NOT for weight loss.

Second, and more importantly, the people doing it are FAT.

I mean, big time fat in many cases.

I’ve been watching a few vidoes my wife and daughter have been sending me of my daughter’s online “exercise class”.

And the one I watched this morning?

Jesus Jumping Christ on a Pogo Stick is all I can say.

Now, the dude who normally does it (or did it apparently) wasn’t exactly the fittest by any yardstick.

Had a belly poking out under the massive T shirt he wore, and man boobs down to his belly button. . .

But he looks positively skinny in comparison to this latest specimen that is apparently doing the kids “exercise” class.

(replete with “kids, don’t forget the water”! – much like you hear in the gyms with idiotic personal trainers massaging their clients shoulders after sets of reps with pinky dumbells and “cautioning” them to keep their latte or water or what not filled as they “jog on the old man mill (treadmill)”.)

I mean, its so stupid to start with, but the lady herself?

To call her a beached whale would be doing the goddamn whale a disservice my friend.

I mean LAYERS UPON LAYERS of FAT.

Pure, unadulterated LARD!

And a backside that (as she was doing the upward and downward dog, or struggling to) would make those of you that love ‘em big PROUD (or other things).

I mean, really folks.

There’s no reason to be artificially thin or what not. And if you’re fat or somewhat fat and can do things normal people cannot, then by all means FLAUNT it (if you so choose).

But when you’re teaching kids yoga or what not, the least you can do is to a) stay in some sort of shape yourself as opposed to looking like a hog more than a fitness teacher and b) actually be able to DO said exercises yourself!

Putting this in context (yet again) . . .

Sure, a military general doesn’t need to be in top shape like his soldiers do. That’s not his job!

But he doesn’t need to be a slob either!

Ditto for ALL teachers of any nature, shape or form.

And as I almost throw up my tea as I think about the video sent to me, and say “Jesus, Joseph and Mary” (really, I ain’t a religious person, don’t believe in religion, but THAT was what came to mind when I first saw the lady teaching) . . . I feel compelled to write this.

Take this for what you may, hehe. Up to you!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – And that’s why I INSIST on taking pictures, once, twice, and sometimes thrice for my books. One, to SHOW you how it’s done, and two to show you that yours truly can do ‘em too, at all weights at that. Sometimes (and I’ve said this before) the books take longer to put out because I have to redo many of the pictures, but it’s all worth it! Pushup Central took forever to get out, for one, but it was so worth it!

Pushup Central took forever to get out, for one, but it was so worth it!

Or I should say one of her candidates was asked, and being the bozo couldn’t answer a simple ‘un like that, she posed it to me, and I answered it, and . . .

Ah, but wait a minute.

Let me back up.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but my wife’s a recruitment agent. Both full time and part time, mostly part time now from what I gather, but I’m not really sure.

But I AM sure on the “what she does part”.

As opposed to what she says when people ask her “what I do”.

“I have no idea”, she says. “Honestly!”

And then the other day (to me). “I wonder how much you write about me!”

Well my dear, lovely, other half probably doesn’t know how much I write about her. Quite literally and not just here. On other sites as well, other businesses, and . . . ?

And she doesn’t know what I do either in that regard.

Sometimes, certain “Secrets” are best kept, even if they’re OPEN ONES!

Ok, salaciousness aside, whats up you ask.

Well, this.

“If an ant walks three miles up a wall (hypothetically) in one hour, and goes down two in another, then how long would it take to walk ten miles?”

(The question was posed in Hindi, of course, being the candidate was in India and being her language of choice is, well, Hindi, and being she thinks . .  ah, but we’ll get there. Hehe).

And this was a while back, I think, but I still remember answering promptly.

And No, I’m not going to reveal the answer here, but apparently the candidate got this wrong.

And was dumped.

Funny thing, memories . . .

I once remember (when Imet my wife) her asking me to “be formal and act professional in a job interview”.

For reference, she called me out of the blue (I was at the job before THAT Job at the time! ?) and told me the following (when I told her I was NOT going to wear anything but jeans, and that was that”).

“Rahul, come on! How can you even say that! Do you realize what a huge company you’re going to walk into?”

(again, paraphrasing)

“Uh . . . “( I was about to tell her I could give a rats ass less, and the only reason I was talking to her about it was, well, HER but hey . . . )

“No ifs and buts!”

And that was that.

Of course, I didtn get the job.

And of course, it was a job where she just sent me without reading my CV at all.

When I quizzed her about it and the fact the job was as much a fit for me as supporting Joe Biden currently is (NOT!! Ugh!), of course, no answer.

Gotta love them recruiters, hehe. Most about as useful workwise as a screen door on a submarine, especially if they’re ESL recruiters, which thankfully my wife refuses to deal with, period (smart girl – I don’t blame her one damn bit either ?).

Anyway, just where was I and what was I gonna tell you.

That both this and what she (apparently, if I heard right) tells my “siesta loving” lovely daughter (who loves to sit over meals for hours forking at her food, much like they do in Spain for one – or did, pre China plague anyway) have a parallel to fitness.

“The brain sends a signal to the body in 20 minutes that it’s full, and if you don’t eat before that!”

She trailed off (again, if I’ve got this right).

Hey.

At least it’s better than what “Twinkle” Khanna married to the famous Indian actor Akshay Kumar told her kid apparently (who was the same).

“The butcher will cut your fingers off and fry them!”

Ugh. Now is that what you really want to tell a kid?

And no I ain’t lying either. Google, and you’ll see (and her husband’s response to it too, hehe, and can’t say I blame the dude!).

Anyway, point of this ramble?

Is to do things FAST my friend.

And do them the right way.

In terms of fitness, way too many people get on pushups, for instance.

They get good at ‘em.

Start cranking them out like there’s no tomorrow.

People comment.

With jealousy usually (well, jealousy and a mixture of “how dare he! I can’t!” – kinda like the CCP right about now . . . ).

And of course, the comments come in thick and fast.

“You’re skinny!”

“Pushups do nothing for overall strength” (usually from people who can’t do a single one in proper form, and I ain’t talking handstand pushup either!)

And pretty much soon, he decides to mix (back) in boobybuilding with GOOD stuff.

Two steps back my friend.

Don’t be one of those people. Get on the GRAVY train, and STAY on it!

And do things FAST.

100 pushups done RIGHt should take you NO LONGER than 12-13 minutes, preferably 9 my friend.

And you can see proof of this in the 250 pushup workout I take you through in the 0 Excuses Fitness videos. Hey, I even throw in bridging and handstands at the end of it for good measure, though the book doesn’t really cover the latter, and yet, total filming time as the lovely and redoubtable Miss Cindy would tell me, less than 25 minutes tops!

And that’s how it is with life too.

Keep moving ahead. No regrets.

Do the right thing.

If you screw up, so what. Who careS!

IT’s about the steps you take forward, not necessarily those you take backward.

Last, but not least, remember what I once wrote about, and what the great Vince Mc MacMahon had to say on this.

“sometimes, in order to take one step ahead, you gotta move THREE backwards”.

And that, my friend, is the final spanner and monkey wrench into all this. I’ll have more on that too soon!

Best,

Rahu lMookerjee

PS – Pushup Central is truly the very best in terms of conditioning there is, my friend. Pushups will WHIP them saggy butts into shape like there AIN’T no tomorrow! Get on the gravy train right NOW, right HERE! , BOYO! Hurry, my friend. Time waits for no-one, and it ain’t gonna wait for YOU EITHER. Invest NOW. And be prepared to be GOBSMACKED. IT really IS that damn good, the best (and your FAVORITE) course ever on the mighty and one and only PUSHUP, and I challenge you to find one better on pushups on it ANYWHERE on the Internet!  

PS #2 – and I just remembered. ESL, and recruiters. I wrote a lovely story on that back in 2014 I believe, the protagonist being a certain Jessie, and a fat, unfit yours truly. What exactly was that about you ask? Wel l- stay tuned – will reveal all shortly!
