This morning, as I woke up, one of my first thoughts wasn't the hill - it wasn't my upcoming workout today - gonna be a sizzler - it wasn't Joo Tube or anything else either.
It was this "it's raining! John Walker doesnt have to crud around in the garden today raking non existent leaves and can work on the car, or read, or whatever, instead of doing boring montonous repetitive work that probably isnt' there to be done anyway".
I dont know why this thought struck me.
I dont know why I fell asleep after waking up.
And then "suddenly woke up" again, with the skies all dark outside!
But then I remembered he's in the UK - not in China - not in India - not in Japan - not anywhere other than good ole "Ole Blighty". Hehe.
Anyway, the story he sent in a while back about how he literally saved his nephew's life - and if YOU on this list have not read it, then go HERE to read it.
This should also be a long overdue wake up call for the Bozos who claim and whine about "Rahul Mookerjee makes it sound like grip training is as important as breathing!"
Then, go HERE for "first part" of Unsung Heroes (which wasn't meant to be a first part second part third part email anyway; just how it worked out!). This I suppose is part two ...
Rain, rain, rain. I once made an Instagram video about rain in China - Southern China, specifically, where it seems to rain ALL the time. I once made the joke about Dongguan having a competition with "Cherapunji" in India for the rainiest place in the world!
Quite literally, it POURS in Southern China like nothing you've ever seen before. Roads turn into floods and rivers before you know it (yeah, despite the development in China - it's lopsides, and a lot of it is a mirage and smokescreen) - the Metro stations pour water - and it all happens!
And of course, trees fall on the hill I so love, and climb even in pouring rain .
That bit is, or should be covered in 16 Inspirational Fitness Recollections. You guys will love that book. I could probably put out three more volumes on that right off the bat! Maybe I will. Hehe.
But anyway, last night I wrote to you about the whiners, whangers, pissers and moaners that complain about "no-one cares" or "woe betide me".
To them, I basically said - GROW up. No-one cares!
That email is there in your Inbox right now most likely.
But I also thought about a lot of the people (and a lot of YOU) on this list that have been on it for years - that buy from me - that have supported me, been loyal to me etc.
Do we ever hear about THEM - their stories?
Sure, not all of them are the sort to publicly tom tom their stories anyway!
For instance, I spoke about what Charles Mitchell, retired ex man in blue from NY asked me about "Profound 70% Gorilla 30% Handstands" .
Great question, but the point here is this - for people like him, do we ever hear them complaining about "how tough the midnight shifts were"?
How many lives THEY saved?
How many people THEY helped?
You dont see these people wearing fancy clothes, make up etc getting on Youtube parroting silly lines about "do it for yourself, no-one else!" - or "feelings are what count!" and so forth.
Or any of the other inanity that passes for self help these days.
They get down to brass tacks - and do.
Then we have a former Samurai in the UK on this list - whose likely done more training in his life than a lot of us have or will during our lifetimes.
Former auto workers.
That likely did a great, stellar job day in and day out in their companies!
Amidst all the babel the panderers, sissies and Mama's boys create - do we ever hear about THEIR stories? THEM?
I often share what my readers write to me, because it deserves to be!
And if you have anything you'd like to share - workout wise - or life wise - shoot me an email - and I'll share it here with everyone!
No real reason for doing so, except it gives you more of a "voice", and the entire community gets to hear your story, which doesn't always happen in "real life" if you get my drift.
Personally, I'd rather hear from real men and doers rather than some Bozo on Joo Tube.
The "unsung heroes" as I like to call them!
And in that spirit, I just created another discount code "UNSUNGHEROES" - which is valid and active starting as of NOW.
25% FLAT discount on anything you buy off the site (with the usual $100 minimum purchase value required).
Why so soon after the last July 4 discount I gave, which was a resounding success by the looks of it?
Well, thats one reason!
And second, I dont know, seemed like the right thing to do last night, so I did it!
So - use the code - and order away - have fun! It's a three day code, and I'm pretty sure I wont extend it beyond the deadline!
Now, what else...
Ah yes, the sales page on the book on Nazi feminism. The pre-order for that. Thats coming soon too - perhaps by the end of today or tomorrow.
And of course, the pre-orders we've got going on Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness.
And remember, last thing, the "Fast and Furious Fitness - the Collector's Edition" - still a couple of copies left, so if you want in, grab 'em now. Autographed for YOU at NO extra charge as well!
(I haven't Tom tommed that last bit enough, it seems. Hehe). So I am now!
I knew I was forgetting something.
That being, I might increase my youtube presence despite not really liking videos etc - because some of the questions I've been getting ,for instance, on the extended arm pushup - deserve it.
Granted, most of what you need to know is covered in the 0 Excuses Fitness Videos.
But, I dont know, like Lee Lowder said the other day - Kiddie Fitness would be even better with a video, which of course (at the time I wrote the book) i could never get my little one to do. Hehe.
Maybe I'll try again.
Or, maybe I'll put one out for Pushup Central - although the workout video in 0 Excuses Fitness is 85% pushups anyway, so those of you into pushups - just grab that!
Then of course, pull-ups.
So much to do, so little time.
Come to think of it, I'm in a pensive (in a good way) mood right about now, so I'll end this here, and conitnue staring at my cup of tea. Hehe.
