Ya'll on this list probably remember the drunken and rather lengthy, pissed of rant a friend (former) of mine sent me about an innocous post on pull-ups on WeShat (which apparently hit the spot as it were).
I've covered that before, but he ended with the following.
"Your tips are useless! Yo ujust say just do pull-ups and handstand pushups and provide no other value!"
Now, the rest of the rant has been covered on the sites and emails before.
If you want to take a look, either do a search or let me know . . .
But really, this silly value virtue signalling which the "so called gurus" always jumped up and down over, and which seems to have, for whatever reason gained a lot of traction this year. (and more so with every passing month).
Maybe the Kung Flu is indeed driving folks insane ...
But anyway, it ain't just him that had the "no value" grouse, so lets address - and DEBUNK.
First off my friend, you signed up for one email a day - and you get like 6 to 8 daily. If that ain't value, I dont know what is. (for free).
Second, his REAL grouse was this - the link I (or the links I) specify in my email i.e. how dare I "sell with every email). (and make $$ off it). According to some people its perfectly fine to pay huge bucks for everything except less than a fraction of that for life changing and life changing fitness info. . .
I get it. My stuff actually requires you to get down to brass tacks and DO.
In other words, not everyone is ready to be a doer.
And call 'em out on it, and the rants start.
But really, I'd rather be honest and point people to a product which can solve their "problems" and address their pain points as opposed to dancing around the mulberry bush and pretending I dont sell or dont want to when I clearly do .
(and be a "so called value providing Tom Tom").
Really, I dont think there is anything at all wrong with that (as opposed to shammy marketing, sneaky discounts, wacko and inane "lead ups to the sale" and so forth, all of which is designed for one purpose - to make a sale - and it usually doesnt when done that way).
I'd rather be honest about it, and am.
But anyway, back to value.
Off the top of my head, lets look at three of th elast email sI sent.
This morning, the first one was about "Roofus Rumpus Schofield and more".
Lesson - hypocrisy, and MORE, and yes it applies to fitness.
Then there was one in there about what to do if you do NOT want to or feel comfortable posting genuine reviews, and how to work up to it.
Its a thought many have, and I addressed it pretty well I believe!
Then, third - there was one about handstand pushups, and I explained to you why my latest product on it is not only something anyone serious about fitness should get, but is also worth the (SO CALLED) big bucks I charge for it.
(Yes, the Keith James of this world are already throwing fits over a product they weren't even asked to buy either directly or not). (more on that later).
So I dont know, bro.
Methinks thats value compounded x 10 if not more.
Then you have my books and products.
Most experienced athletes can't finish or even get halfway through my workouts when they first start.
Let alone the average Joe and couch potato and Jane (and Bozo, or combo therein).
Valuoooooooo, you say?
But anyway, we all know the Rolls Royce is my flagship, and premier and first product I put out here - - that, and Gorilla Grip.
And being a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a bazillion ... well, I put out five videos for the former which have got not only rave reviews thus far, but even with all the trolling, not ONE single negative review.
And more on FREE - - other than these emails and such, years ago, I figured I'd give people a sneak peek into the videos for free.
It was a great idea, and an AWESOME, spectacular SUCCESS - but it's something I no longer do, and will never do ever for obvious reasons, but the original videos are up HERE - the sneak peeks, rather - and the one I love the most is "huffing and puffing".
And those short snippets should be more than enough to give YOU an idea of the superlative nature of the workouts I teach you in the Rolls Royce (for those that dont know already).
And of course troll fodder too, but we'll let that happen. Hehe.
Gotta draw the Bozo back out, hehe. He's gone a bit silent!
(Mommy pulled his Internet most likely).
But anyway, Gorilla Grip doesnt have any videos, because the nature of grip training courses means its impossible to put together a one size fits all workout - even more so than my regular stuff.
But it's still one of my best selling products!
So value, or no value ... you, my friend DECIDE!
I'll be back soon. Just wanted to address a bit of idiocy, and I have now.
PS - IF you want more videos let me know for which product specifically, and we'll see what we can conjure up, hehe.
