Which one should we start with first?
Well, lets start with the first first.
Remember the nutjob who claimed my book on isometrics, the "missing link" that connects all my other great books - and an awesome book in it's own regard (indeed, this book will teach YOU the SECRETS the old timers used to build their prodigous strength beyond belief) was "too expensive" because the "quality of pictures was poor"?
Or some such rot ...
Here is the comment again -
Honestly, one of the worst fitness ebooks I've ever read (and I've read quite a few); it's a simple bunch of static stretches and bodyweight exercises. A shallow recommended programming, and the photos quality is simply unwatchable. And never, never all of this for € 46!
Well, well, well.
As I said before in another post - how dare I put out a book on isometrics that does just that i.e. talk about isometrics.
Lets take the definition of isometrics again ...
An isometric exercise is a form of exercise involving the static contraction of a muscle without any visible movement in the angle of the joint.
How dare I, hehe.
How dare I put out information that was good for the Great Gama, Alexander Zass, Bruce Lee, and many others...
But his main beef wasn't with the course.
What he really meant was this a) too expensive and b) "you took the pictures at home and didnt hire Sylvester Stallone's make up artist, producer, director, and an entire crew to take the pictures, make it purdy and so forth".
What a joker!
Now, we've covered the price part before.
(btw - I dont know where he got the "46 Euro" price from!)
Simply put, as an awesome customers, one of the very BEST, John from the UK said .
"You cannot put a price on knowledge".
And then, "fitness books are about the information, not the typos or lack thereof"
(The first in response to the price thang, the second for Animal Kingdom Workouts)
But in Mamma Mia (the commenter)'s case, he was really upset about the "looking like a movie star" guy not taking movie star pictures.
I mean really.
Lets get REAL FOLKS!
These courses ain't about looking like a pretty boy!
And hence, this comment on Corrugated Core ...
This is functional core training, not your usual get "buffed for the beach" nonsense.
This is hardcore training for a hard core, if you're after performance above pretty, then this is for you.
Sure, some of my books - such as Advanced Hill Training have pictures taken outdoors.
So does Battletank Shoulders.
But some dont. Corrugated Core for one.
If it can be done indoors, why go outside?
Is that not the entire point of the 0 Excuses Fitness System for one? (i.e. the ability to get in workouts anyplace, any time - and with NO Excuses?)
Anyway, for those interested, no, I won't be hiring any make up artists in the near future. The girls dont seem to mind it, and if the guys do, well, thats ok. LOL.
And in any case, getting back to it - fitness books are about the knowledge. INFORMATION!
(not information about turning into a movie star, heh)
Anyway, lets get to DOMS now.
I've spoken about my legs being sorer than SORE - HECK - by doing 500 Hindu squats a couple of days before?
And it's really hitting me now, hehe.
For some reason I get DOMS more than the next person does ...
And this info I'm about to give you is just as applicable to heavy weight squatters (you should not be doing that in the first place) as it is bodyweight trainees, or the average ole couch potato that jumped off his perch (and hasn't in years) and climbed a hill like yours truly did with Ann Lee back in the day.
And it left me hammered for DAYS.
Anyway, right now it's mostly thighs.
And it's nowhere near the soreness most people get when they START out with Hindu Squats, when they can barely WALK the next day after 40.
I've seen grown men that can squat kangaroos and elephants in the gym COLLAPSE the next day. Literally!
(dont know why the "roo" came to mind, hehe).
Maybe because of it's prodigous LEG strength!
But anyway, exercises #11, 12, 14, 16 and 17 in the book on isometrics address the legs specifically, and will literally stretch out any soreness you have within the space of less than a minute.
And that, my friend is yet another benefit of this wonderful, wonderful and once in a lifetime course.
That being - getting back to it - ASAP!
We all hate missing workouts as much as the next person - and I'm sure you know what I mean here.
PS - Remember to pick up the perfect complement to this course HERE.
