And it left me torched, my friend - well, somewhat torched, and while most of that was due to the ape like workout I did yesterday, this contributed.
Speaking of which, the looks I'm getting with my chest bursting out of my shirt these days (literally, I've been on a shopping spree for new T shirts and shorts - the former is too tight around the upper body, and billows around the waist, and the latter - well, I'm dropping ANOTHER size!) ... and giving away old stuff etc (well, trying to - but I managed to give a lot of it away) (no I dont do it for money) ... I'm starting to look more and more like an APE.
An actual ape.
As I once told my little girl years ago when monkeys showed up at the park where I was training, and the entire populace scattered like roaches in light.
Scurried, I should say, much like what happens in China when even a DROP of rain falls ... the entire country RUSHES for cover.
God Forbid even a tiny drop of rain ... ah, but Schofield knows a lot about tiny drops. LOL.
Anyway - I told my daughter this.
"They don't mess wth me!" I laughed. "They just think it's another monkey monkeying around!"
And they didnt, actually. One look at me, and the monkeys take off for other more interesting pastures - people with backpacks, food etc.
Reminds of me of "Manki Point" I visited in Kasuali, INdia in 2009 or so I believe.
A monkey snatched a lady's handbag STRAIGHT out of her hand and she emittted a yowl louder than the Bozo does every night when he ...ah. I'll stop. LOL.
(But he's on a bender again, from what I gather from friends).
Anyway, so I got done with an EQUIPMENT based short workout for a change (other than the chinning bar, though I'm abotu to go hit that soon too).
No, Bozo, not "that sort of hit to the backside".
But this workout, my friend was something that Teddy Roosevelt did in the White House years back - or a variant of it.
And truth be told, it left my triceps and upper abs BUZZING.
Most people, even "fit people" CANNOT do the ab roller well when they first start.
In fact, if you try rolling it out fully, you'll likely crash flat on your face.
And if you're too FAT - then you'll shake like most do when they first get into the table position shown in Pushup Central - except in reverse. Like a maple leaf in Toronto, or something like that.
Or, the handles will BREAK as you do 'em (so remember, if you get this equipment which I highly recommened, please do not "infest the thrift stores" and hang around in alleys etc waiting for handouts, or "20 dollar you know what offers" like Bozo Schofield does).
Please DO get it from a decent fitness store ...
But anyway, and back to being overweight.
Or, you won't be able to do it, period!
And my friend, there are literally so many variant workouts you can do with this that Ic ould write a book on this alonel I might just do that, actually....
But anyway, Lumberjack Fitness will contain THIS equipment amongst many others.
And it's a book almost done, but the computer has got a touch of the Bozo too apparently from afar, and once things calm down on that front, I'll have it out to YOU!
I know MANY of you are anxiously awaiting it.
So am I.
Patience, grasshopper - good things come to those that wait, hehe. They truly DO!
But on that note, there is an exercise even better than the ab roller (which if done right along with other stuff, will give you the ripped ab look within a few days flat and leave your ENTIRE BODY torched within a few minutes).
The "extended" arm pushup shown in Pushup Central.
Then again, they're all special.
But even GETTING into position in that one is so tough that I wouldn't recommend you try it until you get good - damn good - at some of the other variants therein.
And it requires no equipment, obviously, but is modeled on the same action.
And if you mix and match these two - oh - my.
Speaking of which, I'm off to do just that.
PS - The Bozo claimed "A book in pishups. Really! Boring ... Badly written too!"
Find out for yourself right HERE, hehe.
PS #2 - for you marketers out there, the Bozo is possibly truly manna from Heaven (or others like him). LOL! Feel free to mention him in your newsletters too (from what I see someone already DID, hehe). The more the merrier, as his one time friend Charles (who he trolls being "Charlie Bandana" or Charles Rutherford the XXV) said, LOL.
PPS - (edit) NO mention of ab training would be complete without the BEST damn course on ABS right HERE - Corrugated Core. Check it out NOW.
