My almighty - not - computer crashed while typing out the last post, so lets see if we can do this again.
Message from the Spiritual that??
Anyway, when John Walker, a great customer from the UK once told me that getting Pushup Central would probably be worth his while if just for the amount of criticism the Bozos and morons gave it, he was right.
But I found it interesting.
Though YES, I had highly recommended the course to him (along with Jump Rope Mania!) - another course that doesn't get it's dues - I do that to everyone.
I hadn't really said a lot on Pushup Central specifically to him, not that I recall.
And these did.
But anyway, the pushup.
The almighty Pushup that the Bozos diss, and the morons that think adding "weight upon weight to the bench press and "add oil!!!"" is what it's about diss and say its too simple because they can't do it, the pushup that turned Bruce Lee, Mike Tyson, Herschel Walker, the Gama, and countless others not mentioned here and not necessarily in that order into BRUTISH freaks of nature NOT TO BE TRIFLED WITH ...
Mr Handstand Pushup and Pullup Champ Papa can do many exercises, and does.
The hill - - and pull-ups are and will always remain dear to my HEART! (Charles the "friend", if you're reading the HEART part - take NOTE!).
But pushups . . .
I dont know why, but when I came out with Pushup Central I KNEW it was going to be a hit, and sure enough, it was.
"My best course" ever was what I thought (which is what a lot of folks have said about Animal Kingdom Workouts).
Pushup Central and it's 55 ways to do pushups . . .
Animal Kingdom Workouts has 68.
13 being the difference.
Yes, I know what they say about 13 being unlucky, but it's about belief, and much like seeing a magpie does NOT bring bad luck - - ah, but I digress!
I LOVE pushups - always have!
Maybe my subconscious never forgot the training montages in Ghayal I wrote about - starring no less than Sunny "Pa Ji" Deol, the Lion of Punjab (one of 'em, at any rate!).
He of the "2.5 kg hand".
Maybe it's good thing my computer crashed the first time, because I forgot to mention the first time - Sunny was reputed to have done 500 pushups daily in his prime while eating "butter from his farmhouse".
Much like the Gama's numbers, I've no way of knowing if this is true or reliable, but I would not be surprised to know it is!
Yours truly did them too at a certain point, even when "fat".
And that training montage in the 1990's blockbuster Ghayal makes it all worth it, so worth it!
It's 2 minutes - but that 2 minutes was seared into my subconscious forever.
OUr initial memories do make us!
(those we focus upon).
Sunny was in prison. He chopped wood all day long as the music BEAT AND PULSATED!
Raw, primal ENERGY!
At night, the rest of the convicts slept.
He did pushups!
Then they show him eating by himself. Alone.
Then he's doing pull-ups in the rain!
Any of this strike BELLS with anyone that's purchased "16 Inspirational Fitness Recollections" - - - I BET!
Ghayal 2 was a disaster in my opinion, but the first was a classic, and Sunny was real in both, which I appreciate - much respect!
Not like certain other idiots in Bollywood who do "what the situation or politicans demand".
Sunny Deol and Sanjay Dutt (and a few others) were and will always be THEMSELVES and REAL, and thats what it's all about.
But anyway, Sunny doing pushups, chest to the floor on each rep!
I remember myself picturing MYSELF doing them - replacing Sunny with me (when I was real young).
And that visual probably led to my Taekwondo teacher, a man known for solid criticism WHEN WARRANTED - and equal praise WHEN WARRANTED always praising me for my pushups which I enjoyed doing - unlike the other kids - and unlike my stretching, which was atrocious (I still remember him ignoring my pain as another kid pried my legs wide open!) - pushups always came naturally to me.
But anyway, the Taekwondo instructor I had knew when to praise, and didnt just criticize, which is KEY.
Anyway, thats enough of an eulogy on the book, hehe.
If you're not convinced by now to GRAB it - NOW - you never will be!
PS - Remember to grab Jump Rope Mania too while you're at it!
