Yes, my friend.
I seem to love writing titles with hidden puns - and for some people reading this, the title might actually be a reality LOL.
Like Marc once jokingly asked about a bracelet I was wearing back in the day (which the lovely wife took back a while - long while ago) ... (you can see the bracelet in the 0 Excuses Fitness Videos though) when I was getting ready for a suer tough sparring session for me - and an equally easy for him where he whooped my ass (hey, I got him ONCE though - LOL) . . .
"You can't wear that! Didnt you know you dont wear jewelry during sparring?"
He was right, but I knew, but I had forgotten so a part of me had that damn bracelet become.
Lots of girls liked it too -well, a certain Ashley did I know ...
"You're right", I mused. "How do I take it off. I'm not sure if ... "
Since I was brain dead at the time, Marc laughed.
"If it came on, it'll come off SOMEHOW!'
As it did, he asked me the following.
"What is that anyway, bro! A cock ring for your 10 inch cock?"
He didnt mean Indian, but in 2018 he once referred to me as "an Indian porn star in India".
Anyway ... puns aside, my legs are still shaking hours after the workout.
All I did in this patented workout (and it WILL leave your legs shaking) was three things.
Squats - jumping rope - and club work (I could have used maces too, but I used clubs).
And I did some lunges and stuff - advanced stuff as will be in Advanced Plyometrics ....
But for the most part, basic stuff as above. Even the jumping rope part, I did a 1000 and that was that.
But believe me, these clubs and maces, my friend, when swung right tax the ENTIRE BODY - but especially the hips, legs and core.
It's a workout truly like no other, even if you can pound weights until "kingdom come", these implements I talk about in the book will feel different.
And yes, you can get not only a full body workout in with these - but solid cardio exercise as well.
Solid "digestive" benefits as well - all the blood flow to the core will mean you can literally eat more, and weigh less.
And digest better, of course.
Anyway, that workout will be there in the book, but for now, a quick sample - try combine jumping rope with lunges - the second WITH a clubbell or club.
Trust me, you'll want to go light on this one.
Or, use it as a sledgehammer.
I know that sounds undoable.
But, it's very very possible my friend. Very possible!
And I'll write more about it later, but for now, just an update - pre-orders for the book are alive and kicking on the Lumberjack Fitness page.
Given the amount of stuff I keep thinking of to add to the book, this will be my best ever, I'm sure!
And I'm also fairly sure the price may increase - and soon, at that.
REmember though, all you pre-orders get 20% off - and the price is "locked in" - either for digital version or paperback, whichever you prefer.
Go ahead and place your pre-order by contacting me NOW if you so choose, my friend.
And be on th eoutlook for the book within a few weeks!
This was renaming itself to "shop", almost!
But that shop where I sold green tea and other items (physical items - a much "unnnoticed" part on the 0 Excuses Fitness site but it was THERE) - is deactivated - for now.
If you guys still have an interest in buying green tea etc off this site, let me know and I'll set it up.
But for now, I'm doing it through the following site - www.shristiimports.com. If you want to source anything physical from China or anywhere else - (Bozos and women not included, hehe) - then contact me via that site, and we'll see what we can do.
In the future, the 0 Excuses Fitness products page will also have a link for physical products - Tshirts will be one. Sweatshirts too, as a lot of you have asked!
It will also most likely include a link to my OTHER physical products - tea - coffee - cardammom - spices and so forth.
All of which are doing roaring business right now despite the so called recession.
Truly all about man's thinking!
Anyway, this isn't about any of that.
It's about the much vaunted and superb 0 Excuses Fitness Ship - possibly and probably the very best in fitness memberships out there - bar none.
Truly for the elite of elitest doers ... was that the other way around?
Well, you get my drift.
And until now - what made this membership so worth it?
Well, two things ...
Unlimited access to ALL our products and courses for "one single fee" as it were - as long as your membership stays active, you get access to everything year around, 24/7/365 ...
Second, more access to yours truly.
And third, a form wherein YOU guys can talk to EACH OTHER - remember, it's one thing to seek advice from a teacher, but quite another to compare notes etc with fellow students, benchmark, mark your progress etc.
So those were the three "main" benefits.
But others that I had before - but have temporarily deactivated - well, for one, I had an area where you guys could uplaod your OWN documents (training manuals etc) - and keep them for your perusal.
A "my account" section - although thats back now obviously.
But in the future, actually going forward pretty soon, here are more compelling reasons you'll want to sign up for the membership -
One, for now, physical books aren't included in the Ship membership - because of shipping etc. Although we offer free shipping globally as of now for paperbacks, it's just too tedious to work in a "one price meets all" thing for physical books.
So Ship members - as of now, you're buying them at the regular rates.
But in the future, I plan on offering even more special discounts etc for paperbacks off the site - often times as low as 30-40% which is a steal.
Special coupon codes etc which won't be offered to "regular" members.
Perhaps most importantly, VIDEOS!
That ole bugbear I so hate, hehe, yet do on occasion - when it's warranted, such as the stellar and superb videos I did for the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
By itself, any ONE Of those videos is worth the entire investment of $249.99 you make in the system - but you get five, and two superb books too.
But I haven't done any other videos other than that, apart from a few brief snippets.
But, that might change soon!
The more I look at Lumberjack Fitness for one, the more I think I'll be doing some videos for it - but as part of the Ship membership.
The more I think of the pull-up books, I remember that I never did a workout video either on pull-ups - or Animal Kingdom Workouts.
And all my great courses, actually.
I might rectify that down the road - I likely will.
And while these will likely be a purchase option for regular members too, remember - price.
It makes far more sense to get it all for one price ...
... and if you're part of the Ship, all of it will be freely accessible to you at any time.
Download, redownload, do so as many times as you want - your choice!
Or burn them on CD's, hehe, and keep them with you (a couple of folks have already done that - I dont blame 'em!).
So those are some very , very compelling reasons to sign up for the Ship now.
And last, but not least remember.
The no refunds policy holds very true.
Again, no refunds for whatever reason.
If you think you can sign up, then cry wolf about somethng after getting access to all the goodies, then cancel - nope. It ain't gonna happen.
My payment processors have been informed of this in advance too.
So bear in mind - once you sign up - for either a six month period or one year - once you're in, you're well and truly "in".
And that, my friend is that. Back soon!
PS - I've been getting so many people apeing me on Shitter, yet not getting the results they want. Look, fella, you can ape all you like but you cannot duplicate Mozart or "be me". Just like I can't "be you". That sage fact for whatever reason doesn't quite penetrate for most thinkign "if he does it, I will too!"
Yes, you can.
But not by apeing...
It just makes you look like an ape if you do so. Hehe.
Alright, enough for now. Back soon!
PS #2 - Freddie was right when he said "yo udont work cheap!" all those years ago.
And nothing will be cheap on this or any of my sites.
So price shoppers, I realize you are getting pissed at "why is everything so expensive" and "if it's him, it's a lot of money i'm going to have fork out!" ...
And I can sort of understand where you're coming from.
But the price remains what it is - if you're part of the elitest of the elite, or want to become one?
Well, gotta pay the price first!
I know, I know.
But I'm talking clubs.
And not the Glyn Schofield like "club" he hangs out with the dudes, or the club he loves on the hockey field, or anything like that.
It's the Jori we're talking about here.
The Gada and the Jori for what it's worth along with a climbing rope - are PRIME training exercises in any old time Indian wrestler's routine, for one.
Real wrassling, like Persian wrestling, Iranian wrestling, Greco Roman - and what not - anything but the highly enjoyable pantomine the WWE and it's muscle bound China kow towing monsters are.
Although I have to wonder, rather than backfire on the otherwise very "loveable" John Cena (who I and scores of others have roundly criticized for the recent kow tow) - it might actually end up helping him.
Given the number of countries that are saying the same thing now, hehe ...
But yeah, in general Hollywood needs to grow a pair - big time.
Some of the Chinee heroines seem to have more balls than Hollywood in general, to be honest.
And as for what I wrote about earlier in Korea?
Well, watch the Meg - the Chinese actress (Fan bing bing? Not sure) - does that same gesture all the time. No, it's not "by chance" as the Bozos and feminists would have you believe, everything happens for and is done for a reason, especially in china.
Or anything China dominated or influenced.
Anyway, Indian clubs for one.
While climbing rope is a superlative exercise - and one I'll write about in books upcoming (believe me, there are entire workouts you can do just that way that will fry not just your upper body but legs too if you can believe that - similar to what I mention in Pull-ups - from STUD to SUPER STUD - yes, those workouts give you cardio - and fry the legs too!) . . . this is about clubs.
The "gada", for what it's worth is a massive mighty mace.
If you visit the 0 Excuses Fitness System page, you'll see the great Gama of India standing there with it.
But the jori is an infinitely, at least in my opinion - MORE VALUABLE training tool.
The gada - especially the heavier ones work better as one time lifts.
Make no mistake, they build strength and power like few other exercises can, especially if you swing from shoulder to shoulder (caution - NOT for beginners or those think "think" they're strong because they can bench an elephant - these maces wil humble the strongest of men very quickly, and injure too if you ain't careful).
So will the joris - Indian clubs.
And they'll rehabilitate and focus and build sold, superlative, tensile strength in the shoulders and ligaments like NO other exercise can.
Other than handstand pushups, but these joris tax the shoulders in way few other movements can and have been used for centuries by Indian wrestlers to build shoulder strength and stability - believe me, the latter is important whe you're doing real lifting and wrassling for one.
Remember those Chinese girls digging into my shoulder years ago and me squealing with pain?
(and them giggling. lol at the fat phock who couldn't take Chinese massages?)
It was cute, actually.
Now, you could press poke and prod all day, and you wouln't hear a peep out of me, but my traps?
Now thats another story!
While they don't hurt like before, they still stay sore as heck, and these Joris swung right will build and STRENGTHEN - and get this - relax the shoulders, traps, and upper body like never before if you do it right.
And plenty more.
REmember, less is more when training this way.
There is not only an art to it, but a SCIENCE to it.
And it will all be outlined in the book on .. ah, in Lumberjack Fitness, that book whose name causes SO much confusion.
But I'll leave the name what it is!
Last, not least, remember size and weight isn't necessarily the same as it would feel if you're parked on your ass lifting dumb-bells (emphasis on the first) - or on your back (flat) pounding out benches with easy to handle barbells.
Trust me, and you'll see int he book- less is MORE.
Ditto for shape.
Difffernent SHAPES will tax your entire upper body differently with the weight distributions and such - again, an entire science to it I'll talk about in the book which many are waiting for with, as a customer put i t - BATED breath!
OK, I'm out.
PS - Remember, this book will be real man training x 100 - NOT for beginners or even intermediate folks - it'll be an ADVANCED Book.
If you are starting out, do so here FIRST - and keep at it for a while - and then, and only then get this (when it comes out).
Because some things to me, bro, are "actually" worth more than $$.
The high ticked fitness books (someone recently told me "Im the most expensive out there!") seller saying that, and he continues to say it.
Especially to bogus fitness so called "experts" talking about feet on his site (Bozo Schofield would love it!) ... but anyway, we'll get to him later.
Actually, I got to him here BEFORE as well ..
But anyway, a couple of years ago, a guy bought 0 Excuses Fitness, and the book on reverse pushups "the best darn exercise ever" (check the testimonials for that, and you'll see just why I called it that - BEFORE - YEARS BEFORE the testimonial was sent my way and put on the site).
But anyway, much like I can predict what Bozos will do next, and the future in general through my dreams (would you believe it, the recent and idiotic Fotis Chat mess, and what I'm writing today - all via dreams!! The subconscious, my friend, is where it is at. IF you can use it!)
And no, copying me and just doing it wont work either in that regard. Way too many people try and fail.
Anyway, Tom tomming aside, he bought the books, and for some reason didnt get them through the system (we had a different book delivery system back then which I've since replaced with the ultra, mega reliable system I use NOW).
OK, no problem - he emailed me abou tit, I sent the books in.
They were priced at the time significantly LOWER than what they should have been and are now (I increased price immediately after what happened).
A week later, he got back saynig "he didnt like the books and wanted a refund and showed me some so called puffed and buffed fitness experts he liked more".
I didnt respond to him.
Sure enough, he filed a claim, or chargeback, or whatever it was with Paypal whining.
They didnt support his case, telling him "buyer regret is something we cannot support!"
And the same thing, my friend, happened to an extent with Fotis Chat - the case I mentioned here.
It pissed me off big time because I helped the guy with a LOT of free advice - more than I should have!
The deal was I promote him once, and that would be that regardless of anything else.
But I tried to help him.
I gave him advice for free - very valuable advice he ignored.
(And he's still trying to steal customers off this list, despite filing a refund claim or some nonsens eon Paypal).
And yes, he was offered a rate WAY lower than I'd give most people, if at all, to be on a stellar list like this with QUALITY people.
In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if ... but anyway, price aside - here's what really pissed me off.
And he ain't the only one.
Then all the other serial refunders I keep referring to.
It's not so much the cash, its the way they stab you in the back and flat out lie, and I simply cannot take that.
Yes, my time would probably be better served just refunding Bozos who don't deserve it - but I wont do that, and never have.
'Tis a matter of principle to me.
I should have never promoted this clown I did - gut feeling told me not to, and I ignored it, and of course...!
Anyway ...mistake made, learnt, and we move on!
But a note to the "unknowing".
Paypal has as of late got a lot of flak for not supporting people, for deducting money willy nilly from people's accounts and so forth.
But my experience with them has always been different.
True, they're a pain in the ass to get a hold of sometimes.
But once you do get a hold to them, their general level of customer service is far better than you'd think - an actual HUMAN talking to you as opposed to a bot.
Of course, you have to be rational and logical and prove your case.
Which yours truly always does.
To me, it's about the principle, and nothing else!
And I dont just fight these Bozos on this site - I fight them on many others too!
Becaus ethats the right thing to do.
Anyway , that ends this "righteous" (or perhaps moralistic to an extreme, I dont know?) email from me ...
... but remember, do the right thing - truly so - by yourself for your fitness too by investing in the 0 Excuses Fitness System today.
it's truly the best ever!
PS - Do the thing, and you shall have the power. (Emerson)
PS #2 - The guy mentioned above is a THIEF and a liar- unsuccessful at the first, but probably very much so at the second. Do what you will this advice, but it's true!
i.e as I said on the other site, I take back any and all recommendations I made for him and now do NOT recommend him, period. No matter how good or bad his book is! It ain't about that. It's about PRINCIPLE, not business, and I'm sure y'all agree!
(Social SheDia Edit - Some may dismiss this as overly moralistic prattling. So be it! The Smart ones know it's about being a success at life and business -i.e. do the right thing above all, friend!!)
Remember a certain Keith James who was jumping up and down about "Raul just wants 5 star reviews"?
(He forgot to mention that I don't own Amazon, and Amazon even allows trolls like Bozo Schofield that have not bought a single book to submit reviews)...
I'm hardly the person to talk to there, hehe, especially after he claimed his first two reviews were "deleted".
According to him "I dont look like I train".
Most of the trolling is because I DO look like I train.
It's the phat phocks and idiots that cannot.
(or are too lazy too, therefore cannot).
(I did 'em when I was a fat phock, but I'm the exception to the rule for reasons mentioned before) (if YOU are - well, you wouldn't be complaining - if you are, hehe). (and if you are, write back and let m eknow!)
But anyway, I got some meats delivered recently from a store I dont quite like, but used because I had no choice.
Dude shows up.
"Sir, leave feedback", he goes.
I was busy writing a tome, and ...
"On the app !! 5 stars!!"
I shook my head - in exasperation.
People just dont get it.
Cross my heart as my little one likes to say, but EVERYONE I've asked for reviews myself - the first thing I tell them is "I dont so much care if they're not 5 star reviews - I care if they're GENUINE reviews".
If they're 5 star, by all means thats great. We all want 'em!
But for me, it's about GENUINE feedback (and no, Bozo like trolling and whining and moaning doesn't count as genuine).
Lik eI said, and like I do, if you talk to me nicely and if it makes sense, I'll always listen.
But anyway, I gave him ZERO feedback - none at all.
I mean, I could have sent this the company's way, but they won't really care.
So I'm telling you ...
And personally, I'm the first to leave a great review for anything if the service was good if I "felt" it if you get my drift.
Yes, I know.
Not everyone is that way!
But I am - and if he just asks me to leave feedback , or had asked, I wouldnt care, and I'd DO It - now, in fact, instead of writing to you.
The fact he's asking me to leave FIVE star feedback is what pisses me off big time.
Thats the customer's prerogative, my friend.
How this applies to you is this - LOTS Of you have gotten paperbacks delivered, and haven't left a review - as yet.
Lots of you have gotten the digital books - and have NOT left a review - as yet.
Therefore, please do so!
And thats the message for this one. BAck soon, perhaps with a tome, hehe.
PS - I (unfortunately) suspect the Tome will be required, but lets see!
Nothing if not a glutton at times as I like to say, hehe. And I am!
YES, the stories I mention on the sales page - right down to the FIGURES - are spot on true, and they'll be the same way for you too if you dot he thing.
But, can't keep burning the candle at both ends and neither would I advise anyone to.
But the occasional indulgence is fine!
One of those for me is chocolate - and pancakes!
The first was an admittedly unhealthy dessert I just had - chocolate cake. But, I had it last year and not after that, so ill be fine!
Second, the pancakes!
And healthy too!
I remember when we (ex girlfriend and me) went up to New York, and visited Vermont. We literally carted back crates of beer - and maple syrup!
Straight from Vermont or Canada (some of it).
The real deal!
And of course, I remember all the all night breakfasts at Shoney's.
My favorite was Waffle House though!
Anyway, what I BE waffling about now, you ask.
("waffling" is Aussie for babbling. Hehe).
I had pancakes tonight, and chose HONEY - natural - instead of maple syrup - and it was great.
Great, great, great!
The GENUINE maple syrup is great too, if you can find it.
Unfortunately a lot of the stuff out there, especially these days is fake, and jampacked with too much sugar, preservatives etc.
And if you're a Simple and Effective Diet reader, you know what I say about sugar possibly being the MOST dangerous thing, even ahead of alchool (which is packed w.sugar) for weight loss!
Anyway, the honey was great.
And at this point, you might think I'm working up to "an alternative to being a lazy ass".
I am, but we'll get to that later.
First, its about ... :an alternative to an even deadlier in my opinion plague (certainly worse than this silly Wu Flu).
The dumbphone addiction that has taken hold of damn near everyone in society and the "video mania" i.e. if it's not on video, people won't "read it"!
I'm the opposite.
If I cannot say it in writing, I wont - and I do NOT watch videos. That much has been made clear, hehe.
YEs, I created some great videos for the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
But thats a different story -s ome of the exercises you "need to watch" to get the form down etc.
And I'll probably create more for my other courses etc depending upon demand.
Anyway, thats the extent of my videoing (no, I dont do You Tube and the other nonsense bar a few snippets).
But thats me!
Dumbphones do the following (amongst many other things) -
They humb your brain to the point of addiction - much like drugs.
Dopamine "drip" x 1000 - and the withdrawal effects are much the same the minute the phone is taken away!
They KILL Creativity.
They WASTE time/
They turn you into a lard ass and lazy phock!
And far, far more.
Dumbphones, my friend are by far the mot useless thing ever invented, and many of my customers dont even have 'em.
I only use 'em for the banking and such ...
And as Charles Mitchell once famously said, "they've got dumbphones out there to addict us all, but they can't cure knee problems for folks that can't do sprints".
And a far better alternative (oh, the Charles comment has been well addresse din an email a while ago) ...
Which people do way too less of.
Makes you more creative, reverses the dumbphone effect, makes you a better writer, forces you to think, expand your mind, vocab, broaden your horizons and much else not mentioned here!
Much more else thats not mentioned here. (just dont read the porno Bozo Schofield is addicted to!)
And that, my friend is the "gyan" for today.
Thats Hindi for "advice".
dont know WHY this "redneck from Texas" or "hombre from El Paso" or any of the other 2000 plus names on the list or "illegal at the border", hehe (nah - really - no!) used that term, but I felt compelled to, so I did. LOL.
And I'm out!
(The Bozo did once make the comment about me being illegal or some rot with his "its' only whites allowed in America" retarded statements, but coming from a Nigerian (most likely) with a fake passport running around in Britain, thats a lot. HA!).
PS - Pimp her e- Rahul's bestselling fitness BOOKS and products!
So, in response to the "I won't eat lunch with my students in China" post the idiots at Linked-In did what I've been thinking the're going to do for a long damn time.
And hey, it's a prime reason why you (if you are on social media, and it's your primary source of income) - need to build your OWN business model that is NOT dependent on social she-dia for one.
Or even any one source of income.
No matter how reliable you think it might be, that ONE source of income might dry up - then what?
No matter how many swoooooooooooooooooooning fans you have on Instagram by showing titties or what not, guess what happens when Insta bans you?
You go back to square zero if you dont have a fallback, and if you're main business isn't structured on a different model.
I've written TOMES on this in the past - recent past - TOMES. Do a search on the blogs, you'll find it!
If they can ban Trump they WILL ban you.
Freakbook censored my posts, and I never got back on there.
I've been saying for a while now LinkedIn - I'm gonna get off on ther eSOMEDAY.
They made the decision easier!
They basically logged me out after their last ruling "deeming" what I posted was blocked in China, and if that was all, I wouldnt care!
But then this -
Your account has been restricted
Why did this happen ?
We have placed a restriction on your account because we detected behavior that appears to violate our Terms of Service.
For more details on the kinds of behaviour that can result in restriction, refer to the "Do's and Don'ts" section of our User Agreement.
What to do if you believe this action was an error.
If you believe your account has been restricted in error, you can submit an appeal by first verifying your identity with us.
Once we verify your government-issued ID, we will review your account to see if it has been restricted in error. If you are eligible, a Customer Support representative will reach out to you to let you know if the account restriction has been lifted.
Even this BS wouldn't matter much.
But, take a look at the bolded last sentence.
ever heard of any social media wanting Goverment issue ID like passports etc for one??? To unblock your account?
I ain't never heard of it. Normally all they ask you to do is verify your email, phone number, and then reset password or something, and thats that, and thats all they need to do. They ain't got no biz with your personal ID!
Unless, of course, it's WeShat.
WeChat for what it's worth is famous for banning accounts and then requiring a "facial" scan to be done and an apology to be tendered in case you're deemed to have fallen foul of their rules (which is why after the new idiotic security law in Hong Kong, I stopped posting on Weshat altogether).
And LinkedIn, I've long said, and people have hemmed and hawed but didnt listen (much like they didnt about the plague from China, and how it spread, but they're listening - NOW!) ... has been quietly pandering to china for a while.
IT's the WORST OF THE LOT!
Ever wonder why Shitter and Freakbook and Shoogle are banned in China, but not Linked-In?
And as of late, they've gotten MORE aggressive about keeping the paid trolls on there, and booting people with a right wing bent of mind, or those that are freedom lovers or what not.
Basically, anything pro China, no matter how false or Tom Tomming is kosher.
And anything even remotely critical of the See Xi Pee?
They'll delete the posts.
Enough times, and theyll block your account - then terminate it.
Well, guess what - you fools at Linked-In.
I aint' interested in supplying you with government issued ID, so that you can supply it to your Chinese masters.
(they probably have it if they care to look, but I ain't gonna make their task easier).
And I sure ain't gonna stop saying it like it is either.
So, 10 k plus followers on Freakbook "in limbo".
7 k plus on Linked-In - gone unless they folow me here (lots do) or I decide to accquisce to Pinked-Out - it aint gonna happen.
Fuck their professional network. I'm getting sick and tired of this lefto pandering mania, and I'm sure you are too!
And in any case, if they banned Trump (well, FB, Youtube And Twitter did) - then I'm in hallowed company. Hehe.
Anyway ...... so much for the idiots that claim "I only do it for the money".
If I did, I'd be wagging my tail every time the social she-dia companies asked me to.
I do the precise opposite.
And no easy workouts!
The best comment, or one of th ebest ones I ever got -
from a patriot, Charles Mitchell....
"Don't ever become a pussy trainer to make more money!"
Never will, bro. Never will. It's about PRINCIPLES AND STICKING TO THEM, and it's that simple!
PS - My grip is SORE, and thats the Gorilla Grip guy saying it! But yeah, check out the book now - you'll love it.
PPS - What else? Ah yes, Advanced Hill Training and Animal Kingdom Workouts - after all the emailing I've been doing on them - lots of people are on those workouts too now. If you haven't gotten on 'em - do so now. but be warned - BRUTAL!
PPS #1 - And if you like BRUTAL x 100?
OH HELL - YEAH!
I just got it, and I have THIS to say.
Wow. JUst wow!
Whichever company made this is good!
And while I've got other interesting stuff on the way, this is about the fatgripz. I'll include a picture on Twitter!
But anyway what makes these grips different?
First, they're heavy duty grip stuff!
The last ones I had, as you can tell were barely an inch or so thick I think - plus the chinning bar. Which for a bonafide Gorilla like me wasn't enough by far, therefore the mess I made of 'em!
In Gorilla Grip, I teach you (and int he book on pull-ups, and many others) that the KEY - one of the very man keys (man? it came out right! LOL) keys (should be MAIN) to developing grip strength beyond your wildest imaginations is to train on thick bars.
Even if you're just lifting weights or pumping at the Jim, you'll get far, fat better results with THICK bar training!
Every weightlifter - real weightlifter, and strength trainees down the ages - and the old time strongmen - worth his salt - KNOWS THIS!
Thick bar training is where it's AT, bro!
And while I do my thick bar chinning on swing sets etc outside, this one felt different.
First, it's got give - and it doesn't.
Second, you can grip as hard as you like (another key) - or lesser - and it's different from doing it on a static thick metal pipe with no give.
The latter is great too isometrically, and it's an isometric training secret I mention in the pathbreaking book on it.
But these fat grips I've got are at least FOUR inches thick when done right - plus the bar. Well, I'd say three maybe, plus the bar ...
Whatever it is, I could barely hold on this morning!
And I feel great -And I'm going to be doing some heavy duty workouts with them this afternoon!
In fact, I'm gonna go do Hindu squats NOW - after I tear myself away from my recent Twitter mania on another account.
Another business, where it's really booming!
Anyway, thats the report on those.
I'll be back soon!
PS - Guys from Greece, listen up - I've got a cool little introduction planned for you if all works out - watch this space for MORE!
All the time while growing up, I heard the following from one person or the other - in one way, shape or form.
This was of course most commonly heard in family when I had an issue, or somethign needed to be resolved (per my satisfaction, not what someone else thought was right, and so forth) ...
I heard it directly often.
But I've heard it INDIRECTLY more often - via vibes and feeling.
Ever wonder why a lot of people, my friend - never get to enjoy LIFE like it should - or perhaps dont attain whatever financial goal they deem are important to them?
Because deep down inside "we're nobody" is what drives them - though they might not show it externally.
I've seen it with more people I care to talk about.
It's also a fact that birds of a feather flock together - so if you've got people thinking that way, those you attract to YOU will naturally think that way too.
Except, if you're the free bird that dies when caged, and refuses to be in the first place.
And, if caged against its will it might break its beak getting out - but get out it will!
When confronted with a problem - an annoyance - a customer service related issue - anything - arguments - etc - ANYTHING - you'll never once hear me say the above.
In fact, it wouldn't be a stretch to say I've never thought the above or said it in my LIFE.
PErhaps thats why I'm doing what I am now!
Despite everything else ..
It boggles my mind - always has - just what gives someone the right to not just tell themselves they're nobody (bad enough) - but try and foist it on to others too?
Of course you're a somebody - we all are!
THAT is the foundation that Jeff Bezos built his fortune and Amazon on, though precious few realize it, and those that read this will probably just pass on by without thinking much about it.
Ho hum, they'll say.
But think about it, friend.
It might seem like "you're just one man with no power to change anything".
So were all the greats you see NOW that have changed things beyond imagination.
In many, if not all cases they were "less than nobody" and left for "finished".
Yet, they didnt give up on their ideal - their goals.
Which they didnt necessarily share with the world!
So this thinking, my friend - is what YOU need to change - right NOW - and if you dont have it - well, you may want to do a self analysis, way more people think this way than they'd otherwise think themselves not to if you get my drift.
Personally, if I thought I was a nobody, I wouldn't have gotten the superb results I have in all areas of my life - despite some tremendous lows that most people will never ever see - but the highs made it worth it.
And still do.
But anyway, fitness wise.
Or, the pushup guru par excellence?
Or, the guy with the six pack with real strength everyone envies?
Or, the guy that BETTERS Rahul Mookerjee fitness wise?
You get the photo, friend.
Can you tell me ONE single good reason as to why it's "not possible" or wont happen?
If its logical, I'll listen.
Thing is, there IS NEVER a reason why you aren't a somebody - or if you want to be one, why you couldn't become one - in any area of your life.
Fight against this all you will.
But it's true!
I'll be back.
PS - Lots to share, so much!
I gotta say - I love it!
If just for their childish, desperate retorts ...
And it makes my stay on Pinked-Out all the more worthwhile, especially given all the Nazi feminists and Tom Tom's that seem to be inhabiting the network if you get my drift. It's still one of the first ones I'll be leaving, but not now my friend.
One of the first things Glyn Bozo said after being booted back to the United Kingdom from the Phillippines (visa overstay yet again!!! what a fellow!) was post a picture of a first class plane seat (he was in economy obviously, but his bloated ass couldn't fit in the seat -much like THIS person couldn't ) ...
And he posted.
"China. I'll be back! Someday!"
Even they dont want Glyn Bozos there.
He transcened Tom toms and lunacy x 1000 ...
Anyway, one of his posse, some dude named Harald who claims "Israel is an apartheid state" "Hamas are freedom fighters", is ostensibly a "traitor" from a Western country - and he doesnt know the meaning of
acronyms such as "Wrt" and "Tom Tom's" despite being a marketing manager in China (tells you a lot about the general level of the white faces getting hired there, eh. The real qualified bunch left in 2003, with only a smattering of us left behind!) ...
.. And I've been having a lot of fun with him!
He's been calling free media a "parrot" and those that Tom Tom free media (rightly so) "parrots" and then he claims Tom Tom is "a navigation tool before Google" (no doubt he Googled that bit) and why wa sI insulting him.
I gotta say.
The Tom Toms, especially the typical Tom Tom's are nothing if not blooming (not) genuises that make not only Barney Fyfe look like his IQ is OTC but also Glyn himself. Even he's smarter to a degree.
Just dont get him near a washing machine, hehe, or he'll go to town!
These people are so stupid that any sort of rational discussion doesnt work with them.
And of course the level of Tom Tomming depends upon how desperate they are to curry favor with their Chinese owners/girlfriends/wives/what not, yes, it really IS that bad. Thats how badly some of these idiots have painted themselves into a corner.
I wrote about them, and keep writing about them too ..
But, Bozos and Tom Tom's aside, here are some decidely Non Tom Tomming remarks made on one of the greatest fitness books of yore - and TODAY indeed - Animal Kingdom Workouts.
I keep going back to Rahul's work as I have so much money to burn. Disappointment yet again. His writing style is very poor and the content focuses only upon himself.
Done by the Tom Tom "el supremo" Glyn Schofield, who never bought the book in the first place, hehe.
(the "verified buy" proves it).
And then one of the best guys ever said this -
This is one of your best books to date, clearly you understand what it takes to create the perfect beast.
Mastery of one's own bodyweight is so much more important than some random goal of adding 10kg to your bench press.
Moving your bodyweight with strength, grace and power is how the human animal was built to move.
People, do yourself a favour and buy this book and learn the lessons in it so you too can join the ranks of the superhumans. Yet another masterpiece Rahul.
Glyn Schofield, you're a clown and quite clearly you've never worked out in you pathetic little life, because if you had you'd know what's important in a "training book" which is the training information it supplies not whether it has typographical errors, "I mean come on man training books are about training not writing style".
Anyway, what can I say. Hehe.
Both decidedly not "tom tomming reviews", except from different ends, the former review from "el buttsack" if you get my drift and the other from the brain (the real brain).
Which one you read and pick up on - well - up to you!
But really this course is a must have for any serious trainee, so if you ain't got it as yet, do so NOW.
And last, but not least ..
Well, it's not only fun to eff with them but it makes me sales galore, much like buzzing around with the trolls do. Hehe. Im luving in it all!
And thats that from me. Back soon!
