So, Sophia just called me a pyschopath!

Yes, her, the lovely Gorilla Girl. 

Why? 

Well, it all started with her sending me a video - which I hate. I didnt watch it, argued about it, political stuff, and she wouldnt reply, so I gave her the equivalent of a heavy handed slap down - kinda like whats going on in Ukraine right now (the video was politics discussing that). 

"Really, Sophia. I dont care which side of the argument you're on", I told her. 

"But at least dont ignore, discuss it like an adut!" 

Instead of saying "I dont know" (when she does) - instead of watchig moronic dumb videos that destroy what is left of her brain (I told this) - instead of acting like a moron incarnate - I told her this - and more. 

The ice was finally broken when I said she was acting like a juvenile. 

Juvenile, she said - or perhaps giggled. "Am I that young"? 

Women, gotta love 'em. 

Vladimir Putin once made the comment about women bitching up a storm because "they can" and how it shows weakness. 

"Maybe it's not the worst thing for a woman to be weak", he said. 

Well. 

I kinda agree with him there. Hehe. 

But anyway (i've always had the same thought myself, and if any alpha male out there says they haven't, theyre fuckin lying through their teeth, stained or not) ...

With regard to thie conflict in Ukraine, I've expressed my views AT LENGTH on this before, so I wont do so again. 

But, bottom line - few questions . . . 

One, what would have happened if the Russian brought a military alliance right to the US's doorstep - say Mexico? 

I dont think the US would or should have just sat back and let it happen (although with Sleepy Joe letting illegals overrun the country, aint no tellling THESE days) . . . 

The US has gone to "war" for far less. 

Iraq had its problems, sure, but flip side - like CHina - it was also the most functional of the Middle Eastern countries, women had the most rights there, there weren't any overt restrictions etc like in the rest of the Middle East etc, Saddam was surprisingly tolerant of other religions... 

All facts, and EVERYONE - I repeat - EVERYONE knew there were no WMD's in Iraq! 

Yet, the coalition destroyed the country. 

Afghanistan, hell yeah - invade it - I support that, because they sheltered Bin Laden. And the Saudis, the real culprits financing the whole mess getting away scot free the whole time.

Can YOU, the reader argue with these facts? 

Vietnam - I wont even go there. 

My point isnt "it's right or wrong". 

My point is it happens. 

My point is it's stupid to poke the bear - period - unles you're another bear. 

And my point is all the meaningless sanctions - all the poking going on - will only escalate matters until it comes to a point of no return. 

Trump was DEAD on right in that Nato members should pay for their upkeep, and his threat of withdrawing the US from that treaty was valid. 

And if that had happened, this invasion would never have happened - or the "military operation" or whatever both sides call it ... simply because there would be no military risk to Russia. 

Putin could care less about the EU.  (and if Ukraine says tomorrow they wont join NATO, this "conflict" wil end that day. Dont believe me? Watch if it happens!) 

It's NATO he's concerned about, and why poke a bear thats never really ventured beyond it's own area, neither does it want to- is beyond me. Only an idiot would do it. 

Now that the bear has awakened, well ... 

(China, now thats different, but I've always maintained Russia is NOT a threat to the whole world - they want their Soviet Union back, but thats it! - and when have you seen them go all over the world the way China is?). 

It happens, period, and to pretend you're living in utopia is utter foolishness. 

Anyway, no, none of this was why she called me a pyschopath. Hehe. 

Apparently her friend (male) once called her that because she wanted to sleep on a mattress full of money. 

Huh? 

"He's an idiot with no money", I laughed back. 

Hey, lady's got it spot on with the visualization! 

Anyway ......... the REAL question I've been asking her for days is why she doesnt like Gong Li - a Chinese actresss I cannot get enough of, even though her movies, a lot of them are shit. 

But she's just so delectable, desirable and CUTE - and SEXY! 

And I could write books on her, Id probably sound like a simp too Hehe. 

But as I made comments about how "I want to do this on her face" and "she's so SOFT and womanly" - and other such ... lust fueled comments (I wont tell you what happened after that - not fit for THIS site or kids, hehe - Sophia is the GIRL tho, hehe) ... 

THAT is what she called me a pyscho for. 

When I flippantly claimed "Id give my life for her". Hehe. 

I wouldn't, obviously, she didnt get that. 

Maybe she did. 

But the REAL reason? 

She hates my PROBING messages. She has said theyre annoying, force her to think, study and more... 

And THAT, my friends is the nub. 

DOERS - yourself included and master planners - without trying - get called this all the time. 

Is there a fine line between brilliance and being a pyscho? 

Well depends upon your definition of the latter. 

But if admiring a mighty fine Asian (Chinese) dame and sleeping with a shit ton of Chinese women, all equally delectable ,gets me called that - so be it. Hehe. 

Not like Sophia really minds anyway... ;)  

Apparently she doesnt like Gong Li. 

Which lovely women ever liked the other. 

"she's so arrogant!" 

"She slapped Zhang Yi Yi and cheated on him!" (to which my response was if whoever this dude is - I didnt even know till I googled - dumb enough to let her do all that and get away with, he deserves it) 

(she doesnt even like this Yi Yi guy, so..)  

"Maybe you're right", she finally conceded. 

"She has more positive than negative!" 

We all do, Sophia. 

Then I had to explain to her it wasn't about right or wrong, just a discussion - an open and honest one. Albeit with sex involved. 

Anyway -when you become a doer FOCUSED on and OBSESSED on a certain goal, people will call you a pyscho. 

Get used to it. 

I've been called much worse. 

But I get results, friend. 

And fitness wise, if you want to learn how this pyscho does things - go here - The 0 Excuses Fitness System

Enough - back soon!

The good ole V.C.R . . .

It's funny, these conversations we have in our head - often turn out to be exactly that in real life!

I was telling my friend - or, talking to him, rather about everything going on - global politics, and what not - and how strangely enough or maybe not, during the War of Bangladesh, it was the US that sent in a battleship to intimidate the Indians and "stop" them from "liberating" Bangladesh (because of the the pro Pakistan US stance) - and how the Soviets tailed it wth their subs instantly, and how it became just another showdown between the two superpowers at the time ... 

(Kennedy didnt much like India though, I believe, hehe). 

... How India after independence in my opinion - staunch and unwavering started off on the wrong foot by being hopelessly pro Soviet (Nehru I believe was a great poet, but a piss poor leader, as for Gandhi, my opinion of him is very well known - I dont think for one minute he was the man responsible for Indian independence as is commonly claimed, it was the guys who DID - who actually FOUGHT - that were responsible, not Gandhi who even in prison had a nice lifestyle at the time and ...) ... but anyway, how India made a lot of mistakes, numero uno, or one of them being literally making a gift of TIbet to China, refusing the chance to join the UN security council and so forth "let China do it" - "Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai" nonsense (the Indians and Chinese are brothers, yeah, in poetic la la land, thats a great utopian concept, real life works differently) - and how if India had been more pro West at the time (Though given India just got its independece from a Western power, thats understandable!) - India would be, economically at least, most likely in a far better position than now, and many other things. 

I remembered an argument I had with my good friend Vincent about this one 

I was talking to him about how the guys that really DID in India i.e. that FOUGHT against the colonial Brits - how they had to literally flee to Germany to seek help - NOt because they were Nazis, or pro Nazis, but "your enemy's enemy is myf riend" - and oddly enough to Russia as well (USSR then) to seek help, neither country really gave any sort of help but they did some covert things behnd the scenese, allowed these guys to get private militias together and so forth - and how my friend then said I could never support that. 

Which I guess from his standpoint, he's right. 

I get it. 

But you do what you gotta do, from an Indian standpoint back then, these guys did what they have to, if they didnt, the country would never have gotten its independence, period. 

Whether or not thats a good thing or bad is debatable for SOME people (some people make this argument about look at Hong Kong under the Brits, their economy and such - but a tiny city and a huge country - different!) , for me, I'd rather my independence as yall know! 

But anyway - - they've made some pretty good Bollywood movies as of late on all of this, all remembering the old days when things were real. HA!

And I was telling someone "there's really no Bollywood crap song and dance etc there, you can fast forward past the one song or so in it" ... 

Fast forward? 

Now it's pretty much "drag the slider". Heh.

I caught myself in the nick of time, then remembered the good ole days when we had VCR's - do yall even remember those days. Hehe. 

We used to pop the cassettes in and either (in my case) record WWE (F) back then Monday Night RAW! (is WAR!) because i had to work that night, or even younger than that, the weekend movie would be delivered by "Star Videos" next to our house, hehe, and we'd all watch it together as a family... 

I believe I still got ONE DVD player lying around somewhere, the other I gave away brand new (even DVD players are hardly used these days!). 

Anyway .......

Interesting memory that. 

I dont know why I felt compelled to share it, but when I did 0 Excuses Fitness, when I Started, MOST people, even those that were and are KNOWN superstars in fitness - did NOT - I repeat, NOT have ebooks or products out on the scale I do. 

To me, I saw it coming, and I built the entire site based upon the "e concept". 

Download - and enjoy - and have access to it via your account. 

And of course, for the dinosaurs out there like you and I (that word is copyright the great Brooks Kubik, hehe) - we have paperbacks and hardcovers. 

One of those SHOULD be delivered to my daughter today, Mystery of the haunted school or whatever it was she ordered from Amazon (seems she does most of the ordering even at 8 years of age, lol). 

Anyway - fitness wise, dino way is the best way to go. 

Tried, tested, just flat out works, as you see the world "go back to the old days" more and more, remember some of us that never moved forward in some regards. Hehe. 

Anyway. 

Grab the System and the 5 great videos here

And leave a review!

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

Last night, I had an interesting conversation with the daughter, whose truly growing up to be, despite a couple of other "best efforts" - "little Rahul". Hehe. 

Chip off the old block as John Walker rightly said! 

In that conversation she referred to my wife (her mom) as "Class dene wali". 

For a minute this floored me, though I understood the Hindi. 

It basically, in Hindi, when you say someone "class deti hai" or "deta hai" means - he's taking the piss out of you - or giving you a dress down - or whatever terminology you choose to use - I choose to use the good old fashioned British term "lecturing". Hehe. 

Except, her Hindi is not that good - neither is mine, hers is a little lower on the totem pole, but hey - she's learning Spanish (of course my family wanted her to learn french - go figure huh - one of the most USELESS places to be in my opinion, I would never learn French! - and since I couldn't tell her directly - I used the old mind and got her to do Spanish, which is USEFUL and a damn practical language to learn, and she is! She's doing great at it too) . . . anyway, in Hindi it's "class leti hai", I told her, laughing. 

Then I asked her who this nickname was for, though I had a pretty good idea. 

"Mommy", she giggled back. "Always yelling away!" 

Hey, I get it. My wife over the past few years is like an air raid siren, like a Russian warplane booming in to tear everything to smithreens, just ... I dont know, the typical Nazi feminist "yelling all day long for no real reason". Ugh. 

And in the case of the daughter, always "giving her classes". Hehe. 

Which hey, I dont get away scot free either, I remember asking her how her (my daughter's) swimming classes were going (since I'm not there) - and she replied "fine", and wouldnt give me more details because "Dad gives me too many annoying tips on how to swim, how to do this, do that!". 

Hehe. 

That I do!

But we'll get to all that ... 

I then asked her "if Mommy is that, what is your Granny" .

"Lecture deni wali", she giggled back. 

In Dysfunction Central, which is essentially the "family" my daughter is in - there are two levels of escalation - one, the wife - two, the "grandmother" - and given the prattle and incessant DRONE emanating from these two all day long (utterly useless and impractical, most of it, if not all) - I dont blame the daughter for the nicknames. Hehe. 

(apparently Granny's lectures are even worse than Mommy's - the prattle and "drone" even longer, which I sort of agree with, with my wife it's mostly emotional BS (which dont get me wrong, that plays into the Nazi feminism big time), once you get past that, she's quite alright, with my Mom, it's true Nazi feminism Central). (been that way all her life).

yours truly got one too. 

"What is Dad" I laughed back. 

"You're the green tea dene wala!" she responded. 

Or riposted... 

i.e. I'm the green tea supplier. 

Hey, I'll live with that. 

I got my daughter started on green tea at the age of six months. Hehe. I still remember her "bottoms up" with a green tea glass as if it was beer - LOL - tilting the head back and drinking it all up at one shot - like I do with my beer - classic!

I love my little girl. The only bright spot in my entire so called family! 

Anyway - I even named the business after her - so I'll live with the nickname. I like it, actually!

(I'm also the guy who makes it for her, fills up her glasses etc. Hehe). 

Much like I like the Mr Handstand pushup, Ironman, and some other monikers I've been called. 

Much like I LOVE the rather uncomplimentary names I've been called, that list has "swollen" to over 2000 now ... 

(there's a lot of "puns" - intended or not - in this here email you might think, but please - none applicable). 

Anyway, great minds think alike. 

On that note, nicknames? 

I remember a colleague in 2007 (in India) once calling me Rambo for my grip early in the morning. 

"Feels like shaking hands with Rambo!" he went. 

Another guy went as such "It feels good to shake hands with him, it feels like shaking hands with a MAN!" 

LOL - I'll always remember those comments!

Anyway - where was I - ah yes, great minds, and as a subscriber on this list Ben wrote back with an email titled "nicknames", I knew I had to write to YOU about it!

He's been called "Big Ben" , "Thor" , and Tarzan amongst others - as well as "Von" something (a nice German sounding name, hehe - and given him imposing bulk, the "Von Bulk" fits him to a T!). 

I'll take my Da Xing Xing moniker. Hehe. (i.e. Gorilla in Chinese). 

Anyway................. 

Frivolites aside, I was chatting with Ben the other day - actually, last night - oh, by the way, I finally managed to get WeShat to unblock my ID, turns out it was a problem at my end, apparently the VPN or what not wouldn't let me access their link or whatever. So , not the end of an era there apparently! 

Now, I've written to you about how Ben has pre-existing injuries - nasty ones - how he broke both his legs back in the day, had to have steel rods inserted in them - and so forth. 

Yet, he does, and does DAILY. 

His form on squats was what I noticed first, and as I wrote about before, that was BEFORE I knew the extent of his injuries, given what he is working with, he's got plenty of leeway on form - which truth be told his form isnt that bad, he just can't go all the way down in terms of squats. 

Which is fine. 

Hey. 

I've - and he has too - seen perfectly healthy guys muck it up WAY WORSE. 

Personally, I feel most people can and should do squats - their entire life. 

And in proper FORM!

But yeah, if you've truly got pre-existing injuries such as implants which (ouch!) dont let you go all the way down in squats, then you do what you have to - you improvise, adapt, and OVERCOME!

That is what Ben has done. 

(a true DOER). 

And he doesnt prefer squats so much these days as he does other exercises - his favorites? 

The Animal Kingdom Workouts style of training/conditioning - and hey - Tarzan - or Big Ben - what have you - I dont blame you, bro. 

Thats another one of the most brutally effective training programs out there - martial artists for one use those sort of training regimens all the time, and there's entire FIGHTING techniques built upon that sort of thing as well. 

If you've seen Bloodsport, and the guy from Africa jumping around in a squat, you'll know what I mean. 

Thats monkey style martial arts...

But anyway, if you can't do squats, alternatives? 

To me the squat and pushup reign supreme, period. 

There is in my opinion NO alternative to heavy duty high rep squats - NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING - gives you the core and mental work - and the fat blasting effect you get from squats done in high reps. 

The motion "ass to grass" cannot be replicated as well by any other movement. 

There is a reaon the Gama did these daily without fail. 

Ole Steve Austin once said "if you only have time for one exercise, squat. I dont care what else you're doing - if you squat heavy, you'll grow!"

And that truly is the bottom line Steve-o. Hehe. 

He's right tho. Look at what Matt Furey said in Combat Conditioning about "if you're not doing squats, you're not really doing combat conditionng". 

He's right. 

But again, alternatives? 

Frog walks for one are brutal - frog JUMPS - ultra so!

I often do these between sets of squats and jumping rope. 

Then you have Ben's favorite step ups - which many great athletes have used over the ages as well. 

Then, "box jumps" - where you put a box - or small sitting table or whatever in front of you- and just JUMP up and over it - and back again. 

GREAT workout, although not one I'd recommend for everyone. 

Then, another one I have not spoken about a lot - but will be there in Advanced Plyometrics - lunges done in a plyometric manner. 

These REALLY make you sore!

Last, the "knees to chest" movements I keep talking about in Corrugated Core .. 

Lots of alternatives, all pretty brutal - but none replaces the almighty squat in my opinion, much like what I wrote about yesterday in terms of pull-ups - nothing really replaces the good old fashioned PULL-UP - with palms pointing OUT. 

Anyway - thats the ramble for now. 

Hope you enjoyed it. 

Trust you did. 

Hehe. 

I'll be back soon!

Best 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - Pick up the 0 Excuses Fitness System HERE.  

PS #2 - Bloodsport was a great movie! Ole Donald himself loves it, he once told his son, I believe then 13 to "skip past the rest of the movie" and get straight to the fight scenes. 

I dont blame him. Hehe. That is what I watch all the time myself!  (and the (in)famous Van Damme "I") 

(true, Bloodsport isn't real life fighting as in you dont just stand around and wait to be kicked, haha - true, it was more of a Van Damme showpiece than anything else, but Van Damme himself is an accomplished kickboxer for one, and the movie, well, it just worked on so many levels, especially Bolo Yeung, just CLASSIC!)

(y'all should see ole Iron Mike going at in in the IP man series. Fists vs martial arts, hehe. And I'll take the fists ANYDAY in real life!). 

I just noticed a middle aged lady do it, by all means and by far she aint the only one. 

I have no idea why, but even physically NOT unfit people (note I didnt say fit) - I've often seen them climb, even one flight of stairs, even if that flight of stairs has like three stairs - by "grabbing" on to the railing for support. 

For dear life. 

To someone like me who climbs hill daily, whose always the one to take or sprint up those long subway stairs, laptop in tow, hair flyng, while the rest of the "so called sane" folks on the escalators look on with a mixture of boredom and "wtf" (little do they know that could be their workout for the day!!) ... 

.. it just seems insane. 

Why would someone do that? 

Maybe if you're REALLY sick and infirm, or if you're Glyn whose so pudgy moving an inch without waddling out of breath is a chore - I get it in that case. 

Him climbing stairs, it's like a B 52 bomber descended on the building - and not in a a good way either, like a past landlord once commented about my "building shaking workouts"! (more than once. Hehe) ... 

But either way, why? 

IT's laziness, combined with the mental thing about "oh my god, stairs - too tough!" 

I can never once, even in blazing heat and humidity that would have made most strongmen wilt right there and then - climbing steep hills 4 or 5 times "this is real hill climbing, as a student of mine once remarked"  - thouht of holding on to railings, even when I was dizzy and ready to pass out. 

Many did on that hill! I always remember looking back at them and thinking "WEAK" (dont get me wrong, it happens, but just one time - like, TOUGHEN UP!). 

Funny part, I saw this lady when thinking about something completely unrelated, that being how women want everything "now". 

Like it's always super urgent. 

"Budget for it!" theyll yell at you, while of course ignoring they never told you in advance. 

Apparently the ATM must keep floweth(ing). Hehe. Not so much the beer though for Nazi feminists, they can't stomach it (oddly enough, I haven't seen ONE single person in my family other than myself and perhaps one of my cousins really guzzle that beer!) ...

but really, I wonder - though I've never asked, no point. 

"What if its a REAL emergency" - and you've already drained what is there for so called emergencies. 

Of course, Nazi feminists aren't exactly known for thinking. 

YOU though CAN be - you can PROFIT from this madness, but of course, youve gotta be willing to spend what it takes to - or INVEST what it takes, I shoudl say - to learn from the best at combating it. 

I could literally give a lot of these Tom Tom's at Mgtow Central lessons to learn that they would never ever forget!

Oh my.

Anyway - if you're the sort that holds on to the railing for dear life like Bozo Schofield for one does while climbin stairs - just - dont - period. 

It makes you look like a sissy, period, pun intended. Very much so!

And it's STUPID. 

Stair climbing, one of the best workouts out there - best way you can prepare for them is do them, run 'em, SPRINT them ... 

All detailed in Advanced Hill Training, a book you must get NOW. 

A book that was rebraned as Eat More - Weigh Less as well ... well, that was the latter name, before I changed it back to the original. 

Couple of reviews, now, one I've already shared before - 

A great mini review for “Eat More – Weigh Less”, and more… (0excusesfitness.com)  

And the second .. 

Mike Watson writes in - 

Great little book - thank you so much, Sir!

Simple movements that really help in getting rid of excess fat, not just around the midsection, but the whole body is what this book boils down to. The author has written it in his usual "crisp, concise and down to earth" style, and its a classic book that will never go out of style (either). Neither will the movements in it.

I have not purchased this author's other books, but plan on doing so as soon as "the wife" permits, heh.

Hey, man - thank you! is all I can say to that, and he's damn right, it's an overall body training regimen, not just "legs" or core or whatever. 

And takes nary fifteen minutes, come to think of which, if you can go that long (pun, hehe) - you're already a stud. 

Anyway ............ 

We started with stairs, went on to budgets, then reviews, and somewhere in the middle Nazi feminists. 

Remember one thing - it's always prudent to budget for things that MATTER. 

Like my upcoming book Squat 101 - or another ass kicker, Lumberjack "Lodestone" Fitness

Or, Proft Troll (y'all will LOVE these, juicy details on a certain someone you have NOT heard before for one, but much like the book on Nazi feminists, it teaches you how to PROFT from someone attacking you and how!!) .. 

Or so  many others I've got on the backburner, including "Advanced Plyometrics". 

If y'all have ideas  for new books (I'm already at work on Isometrics  - Volume Three) - let me know!

And anyway, budget for those books - but get what you need NOW. 

And that is the 0 Excuses Fitness System, my friend - simply something you MUST have if you're in ANY way serious about fitness in any way, shape or form. 

Period. 

Go HERE to get it. 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

 

And how this applies to FITNESS, my dear friend. 

Last night, I got into it with a good friend - not in a "bad" manner, but we seem to get in each other's faces quite often - which isn't entirely a bad thing so long as its done "in the right spirit" if you get my drift. 

I sent him a meme about some idiot that apparently VP Harries supports - i.e. some transgender dude that was participating in women's swimming - on the female team - and apparently won a host of awards as well - competing against women - which is obviously a BS competition, as "her" horomones are all male, and that gives "her" an advantage anyway! 

Incredibly, we are starting to live in a society where it's becoming normal for four year old, no less, in Scotland to "question their gender orientiation" or some rot, where "same gender or is it sex? Or what is the word now??? bathrooms" are or "should" be the norm, where apparently even sports competitions aren't spared!

Dont get me wrong, if some guy wants to be a woman (Bozo Schofield being one shining example of this lunacy) - - by all means, do it. I'll support their right to do so. 

But there is a line and limit to everything which the current US leadership for one, easily the most pathetic ever - and one that has literally made the U.S. a massive laughing stock all over the world - seems to have forgotten how to draw. 

Not that Sleepy Joe or Hyena Harris could draw much of anythign anyways. 

But adoption by same sex couples - a huge NO for me. 

Ditto for transgender sports competitions against "normal" males or women. It just don't work that way, friend. 

Of course, I'm in the minority there apparently!

My friend claimed "it wasn't everyone that thought the US was a laughing stock". 

"Anyone with any brains can see what the current leadership is doing", I retorted. "The U.S. was RESPECTED under Trump? Now? Just look at when Putin chose to attack for one, he knew no-one would do a damn thing about it!" 

This was a friend who had claimed prior to the invasion that "Russia wouldn't dare to do what it's doing". 

He would not listen to me when I said China is actively supporting Russia financially, so they could care two hoots less about the sanctions - most of them toothless anyway, and the energy section isn't included anyway. 

He wouldn't listen when I told him the Russians might not have money, but they have a DAMN strong military in many regards. 

Therein lies the marriage of convenience, I tried explaining, he parroted some line from CNN to the contrary. 

She En En. Hehe. 

Now, of course, he is being forced to eat humble pie - again. 

"Rahul, you're just a God!" he went in an irritated manner. 

Really, I tittered back. 

"Yes. You think you know it all, you think you're like God!" 

Um, I've never belived in God, I told him. So that statement makes no sense, even if I did, I'm certainly no superhuman - I simply make use of my brain, while the world in general doesn't. 

(and subconscious). 

His next statement validated what I said. 

"You think everyone around you is an idiot, me included!" 

I tried telling him "I never said that" (I didnt, and I hadnt thought it either), but of course no dice. 

"I'm off to work", he grumbled. "Not like you sitting at home doing nothing!" 

Which was another interesting point, one I keep bringing up. 

Despite it being the internet / dumbphone era, people have become - or always were - so dumb collectively that work is only work if you grind it out for hours under the sun picking cotton (metamorphically speaking). 

I've never understood this, bro. 

:Lets say you make $500 a day, lets say you make it by sending out two emails and goofing off the rest of the day - - - and lets say you make it by working 10 hours a day. Or more. 

The money looks the same in both cases, no? Feels the same, no? Buys the same things, no? 

Just why people have this idea that money needs to be earned by crawling on your elbows through broken glass or what not mystifies me, but hey ... 

... I could honestly care less. 

If someone wants to work at 5 different convenience stores and claim "thats the ticket" - then thats fine by me. 

I'd rather do it my own way. 

And I'd rather people consider it "not work" - less competition for me. Hehe. 

This, my friend, is the same thing fitness wise. 

200 squats and 20 pull-ups is more than what most people can do in a week. 

For me, I breezed through it like it was nothing (so would a lot of YOU reading this, i.e. the 0 Excuses Fitness converts). 

Took like what, I dont know, 10-12 minutes all in all. 

And it burnt fat, built muscle, gave the ole midsection another tune up from the inside out, and much more, and all QUICK. 

Fitness, my friend, doesnt mean you need to spend all day in the gym, or hours on the treadmill. 

Ain't nothing wrong with quick and dirty workouts that not only accomplish the same thing, or MORE - in way less time. 

Think about it... 

When I told my friend (this same guy) what a great customer of mine once also told me, in a different aspect i.e. he said his immune system would whack covid (it did!) - I told my friend (when I had the flu) my daily squats and deep breathing would banish any so called virus ... he got sarcastic again. 

Bear in mind, he is obese, and claims "he has no time to workout". He's got time for hours to chat to people on the phone, but ask him to change a car tyre, he doesnt do it for weeks, then drives on a flat to the store to get it changed, and complains when the damned thing tears. 

I mean, really, dude, I told him. Just call AAA or something if changing a tyre is so much hassle (I suspect he doesnt know how to do it). 

All this doesn't take away from the fact he's a great friend. 

Has had my back many a times before ... 

But every time I talk about my workout, he goes back to the God motif. 

"You're Mr Fitness, Mr Karate, how could I ever compete!" 

Dude, just get fit yourself, I keep telling him quietly, but of course, the sarcasm never stops coming. Hehe. 

I also told him I have never trained Karate, only Taekwondo. 

"It doesnt matter! Judo, Karate, Taekwondo! They're all the same!" 

To say the above statement is utter lunacy would be doing it a disservice... it's utter lunacy x 100. Oh well. 

"You think you know it all!" (back to the "God" motif)

Which is funny, because one can sense the underlying impotence and disdain for what I do and how I do it in his tone - yet, one can also sense he knows the results. 

Hehe. 

Poor dude. 

Caught between a rock and a hard place... 

Anyway - I dont care what comments you get, my friend. 

Just remember, RESULTS count. 

Whether you work smart - or just "hard" - is, well, up to you ... 

And I'm out. 

Back soon!

This series is the "Battletank" series - or more appropriately, it shows the sequence in which you should read my world famous trilogy on building shoulders strength and power - for max benefit. 

Remember, if you're a price shopper and skip past the sequence "just because of money" - it ain't gonna work. 

The first, "Shoulders like Boulders!" teaches you how to do the almighty ... well, we'll let the book cover it! - exercise that will turn you into a stud from a dud, from weakling and pansy to real man - from a POSER at the gym to a REAL STRONGMAN - and more. 

This exercise does so much more than build strength and AWE INSPIRING power through the entire upper body, core and back - it also makes sure you melt fat off your body at warp speeds. 

And that i.e. the fat melting and muscle building effect is magnified x 10 in Battletank Shoulders - which is truly a classic for the ages. 

I challenge all you strongmen out there to ONE Battletank Shoulders! workout - and then get back and tell me - this is an OPEN CHALLENGE. 

(hint - even half of half of a workout in this book is more than enough to put the average puffer and buffer at the gym out of commission for weeks if not more). 

And last, but not least - "Profound 70% Gorilla 30% Human" Handstands - the title of the book came from a customer review of the SECOND BOOK. 

Except, this third one really does it. 

Rarely, if ever, has so much OOMPH, strength, POWER and bang for your buck been packed into ONE BOOK - THE book, I should say - and this makes it ultra special - which is the BRIDGE from moving into handstands and such against the wall (or support) - to FREESTANDING handstands, the Mecca and Medina, the "Ram and Shyam", the "Christ and Mary" (as you can tell, I ain't religious, hehe) - or whatever you choose (maybe even buddha in a lotus pose? ) of UPPER BODY STRENGTH AND POWER!

Get the books now - in the order mentioned.

On body(phat) shaming - and more.

You hear it all the time, especially from phat phocks who coudn't hang on pull-up bars for more than quarter of a second to save their lives if they had to - and people globally that are fat and out of shape, yet get pissed at people "saying it like it is". 

Back in the day, I sometimes did too. 

Note this wasn't when I was "fat" or a phat phocker per se. 

This was when I was in fairly decent shape, but eating and drinking way too much, and not working out enough (definitely NOT doing what I advocate in Eat More - Weigh Less) - and it showed. 

A friend of mine once made the comment back in the day. 

"I've never seen you like this, Rahul", he said, pointing at the core which at the time was admittedly flabby. 

"You always had such a strong powerful aesthetic core - it was really nice!" (note, I didnt train for looks - but still - that was a welcome byproduct). 

I was slightly surprised at the time. 

"Me? Fat?", I grinned back. 

"Oh, you're not fat", he replied. "But ... " 

Upon reaching home, I introspected - and saw he was RIGHT. 

And I made a promise myself to lose the extra (few, admittedly kgs - and I did within a couple of weeks - and how. 

Or, a guy around 5 years ago when the podge was starting to pile on a bit (for a period I was not able to train normally due to extenuating circumstances). 

At the beer store, he pointed to my gut - which to be honest, most wouldn't have noticed, "there was nothing there" - but there was, a little... 

His trained eye caught it, and he asked WHY. 

Now, most people would have got upset - offended - and me too in the past. 

(I didnt - I just nodded, and next day, I was hitting it 2x as hard again, soon enough, whatever little was there WENT away). 

Hell, if taken to an extreme, I probably still would too. 

Not for me the idiots who touch Charles (a former friend of mine)'s stomach as he walks down the road apparently (admittedly he's obese, but shit, that sort of thing is not on!) - and ask his girlfriend "how they do it in bed. 

Idiots incaranate, that pisses me off too. 

But other hand, what the world needs more than anything else is a return to being tough - long overdue, along with a kick in the pants most people need. 

To me, if someone says something like that, and they dont obviously NOW, its just a push to get in even better and even leaner - and stronger - or more flexible - condition. 

If I see YOU contorting yourself in positions that would make an octopus envious, if I see you fighting in an arena, if I see you walking up stairs - on your hands - and then back down again - I dont just sit back, pat my tummy, cradle my beer, and marvel. 

I want to be able to do that too, and I work on it, and pretty soon - I can. 

Thats always how I've been 

All around though, you keep hearing cries of "body shaming", and how it's supposedly a mean thng to do, bad for the person, and so forth. 

My opinion? 

Taken to extremes, yes, not on. 

People need to be ultimately UPLIFTED - not brought down.

But there is a fine line between (molly) coddling, and giving it to folks straight. 

Get down right now my friend, and give me 20 good pushups. 

Or, 5 straight pull-ups. 

Or, 75-100 straight squats. 

Or, bridge back and forth a while. 

We haven't even gone advanced as yet. 

Hold a plank, do a dead hang. Whatever it is - if you can't do any of the above - then you're neither fit nor are you strong my friend. 

(and, you need to get on the 0 Excuses Fitness System ASAP)!!

I hate to say it, but it's true. 

That ain't body shaming either. 

But if someone is a phat phocker, I've found the doers would rather be TOLD they're fat so they can work on it. 

Sometimes, we all need that kick up the ass... 

Enter "Iron" Mike Tyson, a legend for the ages. 

From the man himself, before his bout in 2020 with Ray Junior ... (which ended in a draw I believe?) ...

"If somebody's with me, I find out he thought I was a fat motherf***er and didn't tell me, I wouldn't be his friend no more.

"You say body shaming hurts some people, it helps me. I never looked at it as fat shaming."

Tyson at the time was WAY fat and overweight - due to booze and coke use (according to him - Mike Tyson claims being fat shamed 'helped' him make incredible body transformation ahead of Roy Jones Jr fight (thesun.co.uk)). 

And, along with the upcoming fight - that body shaming ultimately inspired him to drop almost 40 kgs! 

Thats something, at his age. 

Sure, 120-60 that I did is nothing to scoff at either. Took plenty of doing that! 

But there is reason Tyson is featured on the sales pages for both Pushup Central and Jump Rope Mania, my friend - not just because the rope is an essential part of not just Iron Mike's, but ANY boxer's regimen (along with lots of pushups). 

Fat Bozos like Glyn whose spindly arms couldn't support them for a nanosecond in a quarter plank troll it by saying "Rahul Tyson", while the doers BUY the book, and do - because they know very well the sales page is what it is for a damn good REASON. 

Even if you look at Tyson's most recent workout when he was out of shape in 2020? 

The ROPE features ... just take a look!

Not to mention, his mentality. 

Iron Mike didnt sit around bitching about "I feel so bad that people are saying that!" 

He took it like the man he is - and got into scorching hot shape shortly thereafter. 

Now THAT, my friends, is the sign of a real man. 

A man that doesn't back down from a challenge, and can hear the truth when it needs to be said!

And the workouts, the routines that will do it for YOU TOO, my friend, are in both Pushup Central - and Jump Rope Mania - and all my courses. 

As we head into the New Year, if there are nigh two courses I'd recommend you to get, those are the ones. 

Get them NOW, and start becoming a real man again, my friend. 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

I just interrupted my jump rope workout to tell you this, 1000 reps in, I'm barely warmed up, but I have to tell you this, friend. 

I can just hear Rocky telling his son ... 

"I'm going to tell you something you alrrady know. 

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, it will beat you to your knees, and it will keep you there if you let it. 

You, me, nobody will hit as hard as LIFE. 

It's not about how HARD you can hit. 

It's about how hard you can GET hit, but still keep moving. THATS how winning is done!

Now if you know what you're worth, go out and get it. 

But you can't keep blaming people, making excuses . 

Thats what losers do. 

And that in't YOU!": 

Old Rocky is almost in tears as he finishes (I quoted him almost verbatim). 

But I feel his pain!

His son knew it, but needed it to hear it anyway. 

Thats my whole point for this email. 

A lot of what I say - you know. 

But sometimes all of us need to HEAR it - from another person, if just to validate and emphasize the truism of the statements. 

The wise will always preface advice with "as you already know" or a derivative therein, instead of trying to "teach upfront" or lecture like a Bozo. 

I've had this said to me back in the day, still sometimes happens when I need it. 

We all do. 

And we all need that kick up the ass sometimes. 

Speaking of which ... 

How high and hard can you kick, friend?

Simple question, but most cannot do it without tearing a quad - or hamstring - or more. 

I keep saying this, you probably know it, you will find it inscribed on my very large tombstone when I go ...(with everything else I keep repeating). 

Hamstrings are a CRUCIAL and critical part of the body to stretch, strengthen and train. 

In Isometric and Flexibility Training I give you a "hamstring" stretch (though it stretches the entire core, lower back, shoulders, traps, sides, all of it) which is simple - you put your feet up on a high surface, one at a time. 

You keep both legs STRAIGHT while doing it!

(I can almost hear and feel a certain Carol slapping my then loose thigh when I was doing it. 

"Hey, Michael!" (she got the "hey" from me. Hehe. So cute). 

"Keep those legs straight!") 

That was at the top of the hill. 

That is a great stretch for your hamstrings, you could work them your entire life and never go wrong. 

When you open - loosen the hammies - you literally TRANSFORM your life with all the GOOD that flows into it!

You feel better, you perform better in all your exercises and workouts , if you've got tight hamstrings like I do, many of you do too, you'll just feel awesome, like you accomplished something. 

In the advanced book on isometrics, I'll be talking about an advanced version of this stretch I did yesterday. 

oh my. 

this one takes that previous stretch to a higher level - literally. 

And you'd be best warmed up well before doing it, unless you're already loose and limber - it's martial arts level (advanced) - this one. 

Look for that in the upcoming advanced book on isometrics, for now, as you know, but you need to hear it, a lot of you AGAIN - GET THE BOOK on ISOMETRICS! (the one out now)

Do so now. 

And something else you need to hear, as I finished my cross over jump ropes this morning (an advanced variation I did not put in Jump Rope Mania!) ... 

Cardio - the right form - I cannot overemphasize just how important it is. 

Lots of you think "pah, I just need muscle and strength". 

Folly, friend. 

You need BOTH. 

One doesn't go without the other. 

And you ain't gonna look like an athlete if you've got a huge belly spilling over "the cup that spilleth over" - simple as that. 

And jumping rope is an ancient technique that has been used by martial artists, wrestlers, swimmers, nigh everyone who does it to get in top shape - and quick. 

And you'll get all the cardio and muscle building you need with this one workout - especially lower body. 

It leaves you with no excuses either - how many do you need to pull out a rope and start doing the thing? 

None, I bet .. 

So get that course NOW too, my friend. 

Really, now. Lots of you keep putting it off - please dont. 

Back soon!

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - you know it's important, when I interrupted my workout to tell you this!

yes, another one of those "you already know it, but you need to hear it anyway". 

It seems social media these days, and people in general - two things. 

One, everyone finds an excuse to be offended, and then kick up a hue and cry over it. 

Could be politics, "off the cuff" statements made by someone - could be "what someone said" - could be "he's SOOOOOOOO racist!" - could be any of that crap - people just have nothing to do with their lives and are interested in finding some issue to gripe about so they can forget the monotony of their daily lives for just a second ... until they go home, of course. Where the wife is waiting with the baton, lol.

(or rolling pin, or what not, but you get the drift). 

Much like Bozo Glyn who as a great customer rightly said, "has an axe to grind" (oddly enough, my mom says the same thing "everyone has an axe to grind" and we ALL know the relationship there!! Hehe) ... People just fail to focus on or stick to the facts. 

Reminds of a scene in one of the best Bollywood movies ever "Munna Bhai MBBS" (the great Sanjay Dutt - one of the few actors in Bollywood I truly DO admire) ... 

Basically, a pickpocket shows up in a crowded station, and picks an old man's pocket - gets caught instantly. 

I wont get into the story and detail here, it's hilarious, but it was set in India, and naturally a crowd forms and starts beating on him. 

Old man has pity on him (or his wife), and then asks the crowd to stop. 

"Guys, stop. Whats YOUR problem? After all, its my wallet he's trying to steal!" 

And then he lectures the pick pocket. 

"See these people? They've all got some problems!

Some guy fought with his wife this morning, some guy is frustrated about money, some guy is angry about something else ... 

Point being, they're all ANGRY. 

And they are all looking for an excuse to vent their anger. 

You are the target ; a prime one!" 

.... Case and point with all this "getting offended" you see these days, if idiots in general would invest that energy and time they spend in getting offended on their own lives... 

But I forgot, how dare I talk SENSE. Hehe. 

Anyway ... 

I was thinking about this this morning when I woke up. 

Truth be told, Glyn doesn't have a leg to stand on either way in terms of his rants. 

He's the one who started it all, he's the one who was blatantly racist and abusive with no provocation, he's the thief that stole money and scammed countless women out of their hard earned cash, stabbed his friend Chuck multiple times in the bank, tried hitting on his girlfriend with wierd "sissy" notes he left for her, and much, much more (not to mention he's just a lying piece of butt licking shit in general) .... 

(I will share the story of how his drugged up self once literally shat in class, so drunk was he. No wonder he ultimately got DEPORTED!)

But even if he did - one question. 

Just how the heck his trolling on the BOOKS - which he never read or bought was warranted is beyond me. 

Why drag those books into it? 

Can Bozo do a pull-up - or a handstand - or even hold the pushup position for any length of time. 

Can Chuck, who constantly complained about my emails do 'em? 

No. 

have they DONE what I mention in the books to be ABLE To do them ?

Nope. 

Then my dear friend, you have no right to bitch and moan and complain. 

Because you haven't got the books, you haven't read them, you haven't got off your lazy duff and done a damn thing other than be a troll (in short) - and take advantage of the fact that Amazon, although they're working on it - currently allows these trolls to troll freely, but real commenters like John Walker I mentioned in an email or so up there get censored. 

My daughter asked who you were John (in the video). 

Hehe. 

I told her, she loved it!

Anyway ............. that aside. 

"I'm independent. I pay my own bills. I am not kept. I do the keeping". 

I keep seeing these sort of statements - usually accompanied by a sneering sort of photo (with full make up on and such) on social media these days. 

And the simps love to simp over it. 

"Ma'am you're SO NICEEEEEEE!" goes Bozo Schofield. 

(for saying that, and being a bratty, entitled ... well, I dont want to go there, but you can guess the word). 

That aside though, facts. 

One, don't we ALL pay our bills? 

Two, how many times do you see MEN that pay the majority of everything anyway bragging about it? 

And three - perhaps most important, ever DELVE into the HISTORY behind these statements?

Usually - not always, but usually, these so called empowered women have GOTTEN to the point they are at now by virture of a man doling out the cash. 

Sounds misogynstic? 

Maybe . 

But it's TRUE. 

And I can corrobate this with tons of women's stories that I've been with in the past. 

Could be their ex's bought the car and house, or Daddy set up their little pharmacy or what not, or their ex husband sending them fat alimony checks... 

These facts are never brought up, eh? 

But they're TRUE. 

To me, if a woman has REALLY done it herself, you'll never see her spouting such statements. 

Or if she does, she'll say it in a matter of fact way. 

Or, most likely, her work - or something else - will speak for herself. 

Case in point being "Sunny Leone", a woman all love to troll, because she was in porn first, then made it big in Bollywood. 

Another one of those people people love to get offended about. 

Point being though, a woman like her - truly did it herself. 

Got cast out from her ultra conservative Indian family for choosing to do it her own way, then did it, probably struggled a lot, and today, she's a rising star. 

Thats my type of person - or woman. 

Thats the sort of person I like to associate with - or do business with. 

Business people. 

Sensible people. 

Not all the wankers on social media...

Anyway, my book on combating and BENEFITING from Nazi feminism - is a great, great read, my friend. 

Here it is. 

Oh, on that note. 

These same women then proudly post about "how the maid is also SOOOOOOOO independent". (usually a mistreated, overworked abused domestic servant with no rights, and as my wife once said, women are the one doing most of that abuse - and if you dont believe me? Go research it). 

Truly, women can be their own worst enemies, even the independent ones (the ones that BRAG about it). 

Apparently doing their own housework is beneath these independent women. 

I give up. 

Hehe. 

To each his own. 

I'll be back!

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

I've said it before, I will say it again. 

If you're not improving - in some way - in every workout, you're not doing it right. 

Lots of people complain of being "stuck". 

Either they're not losing weight beyond a certain point, either they're not increasing their rep count on pushups, either they're not getting their workouts done quicker, could be anything. 

The complaints come in thick and fast, and the human mind being what it is ... 

"Its not working". 

No, my friend. 

The routines WORK. 

What a lot of people forget is the "improve with every workout maxim". 

If you're doing jump rope workouts, for one, and you do it daily - you may or may not hit a max rep count daily. 

Thats fine. 

But you improve SOMEWHERE - daily!

Could be you do them in less time. 

Could be you jump HIGHER on each rep, on the double unders... 

Could be you work in other exercises with it, and feel great doing so!

It could be anything, key thing is to NOTICE. 

Now, the other thing. 

If you're doing multi-faceted workouts, like practically all my books (if not ALL) advocate, you're starting off on the right foot. 

You banish boredom and lethargy INSTANTLY. 

You're constantly challenging your body with fresh new exercises and workouts. 

And - you're never "at a loss" as to what to do. 

Ever embarked on pushups, for one, and just - in the middle of the workout - you felt it was not the day for pushupS? 

OK, so what else to do. 

You could push through the workout, not entirely a bad idea... 

Or, you could do OTHER things in the workout - from one of my workouts!

Truly leaves you with no excuses, and yet, you might ask - how do I IMPROVE with each workout if I'm doing different things? 

Well, you'll see by working out this way it's not only easier to improve - but you'll improve in small , minute ways you might not even notice. 

For me, that was my pushup workout last night. 

I did my pushups that much SLOWER - with that much better form - and felt so GREAT - GOOD - the best!

Then this morning, I was doing jump rope Mania! workouts. 

But, it wasn't the day . 

My timing was off. 

I still powered through 2000 reps, of course, but something wasn't "there". 

Something wasn't clicking. 

Out came the Lumberjack club! 

And presto, my swings improved immeasurably while doing those. 

I went higher - and lower - on each rep, getting a solid stretch in through the chest and trap fibers... 

And I improved my rep count to - currently I'm at a 100 per set - don't even THINK about starting with that sort of rep count when you start, by the way!

And there it is, my friend. 

It is one of the keys to success at anything - - not just training. 

So that is the lesson for this one - enjoy!

And be sure to remember what I said about the offers ALL being extended until December 25, 2021 - lots of people have already asked about it. 

Will I see YOUR NAME amongst those that have taken advantage - or asked about the Ship. 

I hope so, my friend. 

Because really, if there ever was a time to buy what you've been PUTTING off, it is ... 

NOW!

Have at!

Best

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - Really, putting off what you should have done ages ago constantly and finding new excuses, it doesnt work for anything in life, my friend. Fitness is the same!
