In Pushup Central, an "innocent sounding but in reality a MAGNUM opus on the worlds (possibly) oldest, most effective (in my opinion) and DIVERSE" exercise (the opinion part is mine, but the rest are words from a customer I mentioned yesterday "John Walker" from the UK - a great guy and a DOER PAR EXCELLENCE!) ...I give you no less than 55 different ways to do pushups and give you workouts that will last you a lifetime - and get you in shape right quick.
REAL quick, I might add, if you just do.
The Bozo fools (Schofield Blowfield of course, who else, hehe) trolled the book by saying "Really! A book on just pishups! ...Boring!"
I dont know about you, but this sort of comment is so stupid it makes me want to laugh out loud rather than get angry.
Bozo is trying to make it sound like it's a fiction book (boring??).
Hey, Schofield, if you'd even do ONE of the exercises I'ved mentioned in them, you'd be flat on your stomach with no energy left for the tongue workouts you so diligently engage in
Come to think of it, thats perhaps the goal anyway for you (to the Bozo that is).
But anyway, getting back to it ...
55 different ways.
Truth is, and trust me bro - I could put out 555 different ways to do pushups and I still wouldn't scratch the surface of this great exercise.
Ok, thats a bit of an exagerration perhaps, but you get the point.
Take the FIRST style of pushup in the book, for instance.
The humble ole "regular grip" pushup which most people think when they think pushups.
Right off the top of my head, right NOW, and I'm not even fully awake (the bear takes a while to wake up, hehe) ..I can think of no less than TEN different ways to do just THIS pushup - with the SAME hand and foot positioning.
At least 10 different ways, and 10 different workouts.
So, 550 different ways wouldn't be a stretch, and neither would 555 ...
The key, my friend, lies in changing the mental pictures you have of this great exercise.
Most people think of pull-ups as being the champ of fitness.
The pull-up IS one of the toughest exercises out there, and it makes you feel like a SUPERHERO - or SUPER STUD (along with the handstand pushup, of course).
But getting back to pushups - I've often touted them as being the big dog of fitness, and rightfully so.
When all you have is a floor - and we all have that - and a wall - guess what.
You can get the workout of your LIFE (see 0 Excuses Fitness - I've made mention of pull-ups in there, but you do NOT need 'em - or I should say, yes, you should do 'em - but again - pushups, squats and bridging will get you int he best shape of your life - and that sort of routine is what pro boxers, wrasslers, and champ athletes follow all over the world).
Dont get me wrong.
Pull-ups are damn important too.
But pushups my friend - the mental picture most people have is style #1 that I mention in the book, and hence the "pah! JUst pushups!"
(I am not referring to Bozo Blowfield here, as he's clearly trolling - I'm referring to people in general).
And here's the thing.
Well, if it's just pushups, can YOU give me 100 of them NOW?
Or even 10 slow proper ones?
If it's most people we're talking about, includin Muscle Maniacs, th answer would probably be NO.
So my point is this.
Don't be lazy.
Work these exercises HARD, hard, HARD.
And change the mental picture you have of pushups FIRST.
And of course, get the course right HERE.
No fancy shmancy marketing on this one, sorry. Just a brutally effective "get it", and thereeth endeth this email.
