Let's time this one! I dont know why, but I gotta time it for some reason ...
It's 6 minutes to the "half hour" "write now" Hehe.
Anyway, the breaststroke and me have a long history, as do breasts themselves.
I've spoken galore about how to cure man boobs - some of the exercises in Corrugated Core are TAILORED TOWARDS THAT!
It's a huge problem a lot of men face - lets face it.
And it solves other issues too i.e bloated stomaches, bulging bellies, expanding asses - and more.
when it comes to females though, I've never been much of a breast man - to an extent.
I love them sometimes, but I'm mostly a leg man. Hehe.
I dont know why ...
Yes, derrieres too (Bozo did your ears perk up? Hehe) ...
But anyway, that aside, I'll always remember what someone said about me doing breaststroke at a hotel (somewhat) pool I was using when I took my wife out for a weekend getaway in "Badhkal Lake" in India (the Northern part) in 2007 ...
That trip was the first of many we went on together!
(mostly to the Himalayas, different parts of the hills). ...
But I still remember everyone telling us NOT to go on the trip, my parents complaining about so called honor killings and so forth (I mean come on, yes, that was a bit of a risk, but nowhere near what they made it out to be - and plus - LIVE LIFE, dont RUN SCARED! - but of course, thats not what my parents thought, hehe "apparently it's good for those Westerners" "but not in India" - I mean jeez, even the Chinese are open enough about it, so as their favorite not President Biden says ... COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
... My wife, of course never TOLD her parents.
Perhaps I shouldn't have either.
Anyway, he was ...
(its 8 minutes so far. I was interrupted for 3 of those, I'd say!)
So, 5 ... clock's on again!
But anyway, thoughts back to what I was doing ...
That trip was pretty cool. It was a bit of a hilly area, but we never got to see any hills - basically it was "time spent together" - lots of drinking, eating, petting the stray dog who showed up every night to eat the "leftover chicken bones and curry" - he'd literaly lick it up and the bowl used to be so spotless we wondered if we should even give to the hotel guys for cleaning and what not!
Reminds of the two dogs in the hotel I so liked in Nainital in UP in India growing up (that was well and truly the Himalayas, of course).
They'd follow me and my younger cousin around all over the place, and my sister would ask why these dogs loved these two so much.
Dogs love dogs, hehe.
But dog eat dog world aside, my Uncle had it spot on.
"No, it wasn't the biscuits you guys keep feeding them", he said to no-one in general.
"it's all the LOVE you give them!"
He was right.
I love that guy!
Not many others did though, hehe. But he passed happily in 2013, oddly enough, as I went to China yet again ...
Smoked, drank, made merry his whole life - and I often meet him in my dreams!
This stream of consciousness is both longer and slower than I thought! Hehe.
But anyway, there was a phat phock instructor there near the pool I was swimmign in, and he started to offer me advice - though to his credit, once I was DONE swimming.
Apparently my toes while doing breaststroke were splayed out wrong or something, but the guy himself was so fat, I just wondered, this guy giving me advice???!
Of course, swimming is one of those things you can do when fat too - I've seen former swimming champs do the butterfly for one pretty well even with a huge belly (for one lap, hehe).
I still remember a lady telling me in 2009.
"you do it so well!"
(Butterfly - which I taught myself how to do).
Breaststroke, well, I was taught the "head above" version - the least ergonomic way of doing it, but boy does it build the shoulders, chest and traps!
But it's not what I'd recommend you to do - or learn - except for SURVIVAL.
In a pool, you're far better off doing regular breaststroke in a streamlined position - looking at the bottom of the pool, not "ahead" - but of course, in a choppy ocean it comes in handy!
Believe me and this comes from yours truly "ironman" (there is a reason I've been called that!) - swimming in the OPEN OCEAN is way different from a pool, or even calm river, lake, whatever.
You'll FEEL how - once you DO IT!
But that aside, I believe I mentioned Bozos in the email title?
I dont know why I did that - that instructor maybe was acting like a bit of a Bozo.
But also because of this great (not) review (so called) that Bozo Schofield once handed out in his Bozo like style on the great book on pull-ups I wrote (advanced pull-ups - Bozo has as much chance of knocking ONE of those out as he has of farting and landing on the moon)
Terrible trash for Tom Tom's!
The author claims to share how he can be a stud, I thought I would try it. My days would start at 3am with me walking 20 miles a day, and doing 25 laps of the swimming pool at the complex. The rest of the time, I was doing volunteer work or working with the local authorities. I was just a typical Tom Tom! I wanted to be a stud like Rahul who has no friends or sex life. Sure enough, the book was utterly drivel. I asked for my money back but Rahul launched into a campaign of threats. He is obviously a loner and we hope he will get help.
Ive debunked this rubbish so many times that I won't do so again ...
(do a Google, you'll find it. Hehe).
But it's interesting, even when copying the part about swimming recollections from the great book on fitness recollections I wrote, he lowered the number from I believe 50 to 25. Hehe.
Some things, even the Bozo has his limits.
I still remember though, I'd keep going way beyon 50 in that pool in the Southern US ...
Anyway, it be a day for flashbacks today?
I dont know.
Here endeth this 1063 (at the moment) word "rant".
Took around 17 minutes all in all, being I was interrupted for 3 or so, 14...
Not bad, I'd say!
My daughter often repeats the following to me (it's been going on for years).
"Dad, I told my friends you climbed in Category 3 hurricanes!"
Which is true, of course.
Living where I did, hurricanes, typhoons - whatever you call 'em - as much a part of daily life in Southern China as in the Southern US!
Believe me, I've seen monsters in China - and in the US.
But most of the time, they were hyped up by the media - at least in China, where even a few drops of rain is enough apparently to send locals scurrying for cover.
Which is wierd...
In the US, at the age of 17, I remember this prime "lovely" advice given to me when yours truly used to get soaked to the bone, and didnt care.
"This is not India!"
"If you fall sick here, no-one will take care of you, and look at these people! "
Then this grade A idiot would gesture around him.
"Thats why they protect themselves" ! (he'd show me a bunch of Tom tOms with umbrellas).
Phock. Fooey. I'd rather General Michael who once told me "Real men dont carry umbrellas!"
I dont like umbrellas.
I like rain even less.
But in a pinch, I've been known to choose the latter!
Anyway, this idiot didnt bother to mention that no one would have taken care of me "in India" necessarily either.
this idiot also didnt know China, years later, where it's the same so called "take care of family" culture (it ain't - hint - China is by far the most materialistic even in that regard, materialism truly taken to GIDDY LIMITS!) ,,,, well, that ain't exactly why they scatter when a few drops of rain hits them!
Back to hurricanes, hehe.
I guess the Chinese to an extent are right about their warnings, especially in the area where I climb.
I dont know if I mentioned this in 16 INspirational Fitness Recollections, but I remember a tree falling next to me - right NEAR ME - as I climbed up, the tree fell where I was a second ago!
So it can be dangerous.
But it's also exhilirating!
And being able to stick to those workouts no matter what - it gives you a feeling of INVINCIBILITY - that you can handle damn near anything and everything!
Kinda like in the Special Forces where they toughen you up to that level.
Anyway, daughter continued.
"Their jaws always drop!"
Which I can believe.
Most adults, and even kids these days - making the nigh tortorous trip from "bedroom -> el commode" before the "geyser bursts" is too much to do.
Let alone climb hills.
If they by chance climb a hill - you tell them to do it again the next day?
Like my Dad once famously said after a tough climb.
Was hilarious, the sense of finality in his voice, hehe.
But anyway ......................
Good thing for you, my friend, and I know this - you ain't necessarly interested in doing anything like that.
Neither do you have to be!
I simply started out to get in shape.
And along the line, what took place was truly beyond mind boggling and astounding.
You too, can get started on this road now if you so choose.
Start by investing right HERE.
That wasn't the exact comment Chuck made all those months ago. He literally threw a HISSY at my post on pull-ups - it struck home, because I basically said phat phocks couldn't do 'em, period, and to do 'em you have to lose weight around the midsection.
That was a hard, hard hitting post.
I HIT HARD, BRO!
Anyway, ;let's see if I can find Chuck's (probably alcohol fueled) rant against a post NOT aimed at him - at all - he wasn't even on my mind when I wrote it.
And this, friend is the original post which dear Chuck ranted against - Deadlifts and grip training and my thoughts on each, and both . . . (rahulmookerjee.com).
Of course, he later batted that away by saying "but I just said that onwechat".
Much like the Bozo is whining about "But I just trolled you on wechat with racist memes Chuck made". . .
I swear, the sense of entitlement lunatics like the Bozo have - and typical Tom tom's like him. And of course, liberals like Charles.
Of course, he claims up and down "I'm not liberal or conversative! I'm sensible!"
Yeah. Right. The paradigm of goose and gander, eh.
Lets see, Charles, did I even mention YOU in the post?
No I didnt.
Lets see, Bozo Glyn. Did I EVER say one bad word about you - troll you - refer to your race - and then you respond with what, trolling and attacking me back x 10?
Trying to destroy me?
You thought I wouldn't reply, eh. For a long time I decided not to.
When it biteth though, boy, it BITES. And it doesnt sting like a scorpion. It kills.
GO FOR THE JUGULAR!
STREET FIGHTER, as a big dude Aaron once called me!
Go for the jugular so people watching will KNOW not to mess with you said Donald Trump. So true!
My friend Rueben once said the following.
I dont fight fair. I fight dirty - and I WIN!
He probably would, hehe.
But like Trump, he's really the nicest guy ever.
Just dont make the mistake of pissing him off.
"Them damn women....."
I'll never forget him in traffic, his trusty 9mm by his side (not Glyn's 9mm wang, lol) ...
It used to be hilarious!
Some chick would cut in front of me, or slam on the brakes or something, and he "done got the red ass".
I'll kill that motha............ he'd thunder, face all red!
And he'd have his gun by his side for added emphasis.
Funny part, he knew, and I knew, he'd never use it.
But it was good to have anyway ... Good ole Rueben! We love you!
This ain't about my black Mamba for one, Bozo Schofield, so you can click away.
It's about ... I mean, what do these loonies think?
That they can make all the comments they like, including claiming "what I teach is gay" (sometimes, and then pad it away by saying "they were just kidding") - and I can't respond at all?
I mean, here's my response.
Is being a dancing monkey in China - a dancin gBozo, rather, any LESS gay or faggoty?
I dont think so, brah.
Tell them that though, they're up in arms.
But apparently THEY can tell ME anythign they like, and I'm supposed to meekly take it!
Makes me wonder, did Charles really create those racist memes? Who knows!
I stil say no.
But sometimes, I wonder...
Anyway, we all know whose advice works, and whose doesn't.
Charles Mitchell said it best HERE.
John Walker has been saying it forever My buddy from the Marines has. Panourgias has. Damn near anyone with half a brain, as Charles said, has...
But anyway, why do I mention this.
I dont know, I just got this email about ...
The Blitzkreig of emaisl you're sending!
This was NOT meant in a bad way.
He's considering Battletank Shoudlers as the next step. Smart dude!
He had questions, I covered those, so what he said in terms of blitzkrieg was basically ... just that one line. The email was about something else.
But it made me think.
The left, and loonies in general complain, but do we ever see them complain about the blitzkrieg of BAD NEWS - idiotic crap that don't help you NONE that is Tom Tommed globally daily?
For instance, this idiotic China virus.
Or, the damn panixines.
Or, the economy (ever notice how even when it's up, no-one says it is?)?
Folks love to be the bearer of doom and gloom and the harbinger of BAD NEWS, ever see anyone say things are GOOD?
Trust me, we attract what and how we think.
You cannot escape thi struism, friend.
Look at the world NOW.
But anyway, I just noticed Governor De Santis in Florida made a great decision on making masks OPTIONAL in schools.
I cannot applaud this man enough.
STOP FORCING KIDS TO WEAR MASKS!
They're useless beyond a point, and it's personal choice.
Kids can't make that choice.
YOU CAN'T MAKE IT FOR THEM !
Their PARENTS CAN AND SHOULD!
Governor Santis - great job!
Of course, Twitter came alight with the left attacking him of being a murderer, and worse.
OF course, when asked about China - the country that SPREAD this (ccp) - no answers.
I give up.
Goose and gander is truly an alien concept these days...
Anyway, my advice Works, friend.
Take it or leave it, but you cannot dispute the results...
And it will work for you too - if you let it!
PS - Grab the 0 Excuses Fitness System NOW.
PPS - Charles (the former friend) isn't exactly all for freedom of speech, of course, as y'all know, and can see HERE ...
Glad to know the other Charles -a great customer - came out strongly against that too!!!!! KUDOS!!!!!
This is going to be a short one, but I've gotta ask!
In the future, we're planning on putting out 0 Excuses sports wear - and on the menu as of now - hoodies - and T shirts!
Of all sizes, shapes and sorts - colors too possibly (athough I prefer simple white and black, but we'll see).
I have written before about the nightmare it is for me shopping for clothes - both upper and lower body.
First thing you know, sizes these days ain't standard anywhere.
Second, what is XXL around the waist - is, for me, and all you trainees likely too - WAY too tight around the shoulders!
Recently I ordered another one of those XXL T -shirts.
They fit me nigh perfectly, and don't billow around the waist like some of my other shirts do.
But look at me trying to get into - and take the damned thing off, you'd think I was trying to rip the arms off, thats how much of a struggle it was!
There's snug fit, then there's EXTRA snug fit!
Especially in hot weather (A/C and everything not withstanding).
And here's the thing - what I personally would like to find?
Some manufacturer that makes things for peopl ethat workout - not phat phocks that dont.
Some manufacturer that understands "slim fit" is fine, but those shoulders should be a size larger!
Some manufacturer that is truly a 0 Excuses style trainee himself or herself - so he or she - knows the struggle!
Write back - let me know your thoughts.
PS - Two courses, if used in conjunction that'll make the top buttons on your shirts pop like nothing you've ever done before - Battletank Shoudlers - or Shoulders like Boulders! if you're starting out.
And of course, Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness - very close to completion. Get your pre-order in NOW my friend - special gift for all those that DO!
Sage question indeed, my friend.
I posed one earlier too I believe about "the most vulnerable spots on your body".
But anything, when I ask you this, I dont mean insanity i.e. I don't mean running away from wild animals or trying to outrun an actual Ferrari or Jaguar, or even Henry Ford's 1940 model.
I dont mean cheetah or gazelle.
That, my friend, despite the pictures on the Animal Kingdom Workouts page simply wont happen regardless of which traning programs you're on or will be on, because until we get genetically modified if that happens, humans can never outrun a grizzly for one.
But, there is a very good reason it's shown on that page...
This is not about Animal Kingdom Workouts, so back on topic we go for a change.
I'm talking run as fast as in ....
Well, perhaps my little girl running for her dumbphone the minute it's allowed hehe (not the slow waddle back once times up).
(I wrote about kiddie dumbphone addiction yesterday, and it seems my "prayers" have been heard. Whether or not my comments helped, I do not know, but hey, the end result counts eh!)
(And I'd never get credit even if it did help, but I'd get the blame if it didnt. LOL. Sound familiar guys??)
Or, me running for the bathroom fresh back from a trip to HK - literally off the bus, tearing up the stairs.
I had to GO if you get my drift, and while I had am empty botlte handy, I couldn't take a leak in front of all in the bus. Glyn might but I wouldn't!
Though the Chinese, some of them have no problem doing it, but then again, in a culture where women putting their dirty feet up on Starbucks tables is accepted ... and takin gcraps in subway stations is accepted (all true stories - reserch if you not believe me) .. what can I say.
Or, changing diapers on airplane and other trays. UGH.
But anyway, thats another example.
Or, perhaps the one and only Bozo "on public welfare in Birmingham" infesting poor ole Blighty Glyn Schofield when he (she?) seems rear ends "open" in front of her.
aka the Oxford Bozo (he claims he now goes to Oxford).
I truly, truly feel sorry for Socks-ford.
Even dirty socks have their limits ...
And no, that ain't me indirectly commenting upon Oxford, which is, has been, and continues to be one of the most prestigous educational institutions in the world. For a reason.
It's me commenting on Bozo's "School of Hard Knocks and Dirty Socks".
Hard knocks being ...well, you get the drift.
But anyway, all this jovial stuff aside, you understand what I mean now, no?
And if you had to do it - could you?
For most people, the answer would be if you answer honestly - NO.
And these same people would give me an angry retort.
"Why would I ever need to do that"?
Well, my friend, you might well need to down the line given how the world is going, but even if you didnt the fact begets that -
One, most people, even advanced trainees would be well advised not to do this right off th ebat.
And two, if I had to choose ONE method amongst all my superior fat smelting methods and techniques and exercises and what not - it would be this.
Three, it ain't too simple.
Four, it's only for super advanced, and even those people cannot just "work up to it" - you do it a certain way.
Don't believe me?
Think anyone can do it?
Well, yours truly when he was a phat phocker (I dont know why, but many Chinese use the "phock" experession and replace "u" with "o" - could it be Bozo Glyn "round posterior" influence?) once tried, and remember this was when I was "thick" and could still do pull-ups and pushups like no-one's biz, and DID do 'em - - - and ended up with a nasty calf strain that lasted for not days, but weeks.
I could barely hobble home, and I Was driving home!
Anyway, my friend, we all know and are intereste in smelting fat off our bodies at record speeds, about eating more and weighing less, and NEVER worrynig about what we eat (in terms of weight loss).
And that is why I put out Advanced HIll Training in 2018. Right smack dab middle of Chinese New Year, no less. Year of the OX that time? Not sure!
some memories are the best!
And I renamed it from Eat More - Weigh less to what it is now to keep the Bozos away.
And that, my friend truly is a SUPERB course that you MUST invest in.
Do so now, and let me know how it goes!
PS - There is a reason I wrote about "most vulnerable part of the body" shaking workouts a while ago!
At the outset, let me clear one thing.
When I say core, I dont mean that silly little six pack or twelve pack that the nuts at the 'Jim Shim' die for , spend bazillions of dollars on protien shakes for, do millions of bunny "shunny" crunches, use useless gadgets and so forth.
Tummy trimmers, crash diets and so forth and yet, those muscles never really show like they want .
What they want is a CORRUGATED CORE, except they dont know it, because they've consciously bought into the six pack madness.
If there was something utterly ridiculous in the fitness world, its the craze for six packs - if you've ever heard the saying back it up?
I'm sure you have.
And most of the idiots with artificial six packs have NOTHING to show "behind" to back it up.
No legs, no core, no glutes (but I guess that means Bozo Schofields dont chase 'em, hehe) - and certainly no grip and upper back.
It's an unnatural look that starts to fade away as soon as you step out of the gym - or even in it, while you stop popping pills (or injecting testosterone, or any of the silly things men do in that regard).
Thats another thing, by the way.
Just why the heck someone would need to "inject" T into themselves is beyond me, but gaggles of men do it.
Instead, why not get MORE T than you ever bargained for - naturally?
Ah, but wait.
That sort of training is HARD training - real man training.
It constitutes things most people will never do, like hiking hills in blazing heat and humidity for years multiple times for one, and doing it in snow, rain, sleet or so forth, or pounding out 150 pull-up per workout ...
But anyway ...
Back in the day I used to be fat.
NO secret there. It's even there on the cover of some of my books, hehe, (hence Bozos like "Keith James" and Mama's boys throw hissies over it, and hence I do not, and will NOT change the cover of ANY of my books).
And you'd think with all the pushups and pull-up I did, my grip would be stronger than it is now, if just for the insanely moronic and ASS-ININE logic the BOZOS at the Jim have.
That being, more weight = more strength.
(and injuries, and other crap, but whose counting).
More weight - more strength, eh?
Well, first off, if this was true, why the fat focks can't do pull-ups like I do -and did - is beyond me?
But it's true.
And my grip, my friend, only got to the scary levels it did when my CORE and rest of the body was in solid shape!
If you've ever done a REAL grip, you'll know you do it like a WRESTLER - naturally - to get that UNNATURAL pull to your grip!
And the only way you can do that?
Is, much like when you're throwing a punch to flatten, you engage the core and legs.
And THAT is how the grip goes from "ok" to truly spectacular - I cannot empashize this enough.
When I do my leg workouts, I feel a sense of INVINCIBILITY.
Believe me, those leg muscles "pumping" under your clothes?
Thats when you know it's real training as opposed to the idiotic machines where you do leg presses and such.
It's when that muscle literally "bulges" out of your thighs WITHOUT you consciously trying to do so.
And it's when you have a true CORRGUATED core, my friend - that you can truly have a GRIP that is beyond any sort of belief, scary and INHUMAN LEVELS.
No, the latter doesn't work without the former.
And its damn near impossible to get the former without the latter.
My courses linked above have got praise from all over the world, rave reviews, and many other things due to one reason - they work - and they work better than anything else out there.
Combine the above with Animal Kingdom Workouts, and your grip will go from "beyond scary" to "truly out of this world levels".
Trust me on this one!
Got the first of many comments today to share wth you (I'll be sharing all in future emails, but for now, lets go in order) for my new book "Profound Handstands "70% Gorilla 30% Human".
James from planet Venus apparently wrote in to say this -
"Not a bad book, but the author forgets he's not training us to become Army members. Just way too tough! One of the workouts left me depleted for days! While it's not a terrible book, the price! It's too expensive. I wont be buying again".
Honestly, man (or woman, given the tone of his rant), I dont get it . . .
If I give it to folks easy, they complain it's too easy (though really, I don't do easy - what I teach LOOKS easy, but is anything BUT - though it will look easy to you too when you can do it).
When it's tough, stuff that gets results people bitch about "we dont want to join the Army".
Like dude, nowhere in any of my books do I say you need to or want to join the Army, but really, THESE are the workouts which not just stalwarts from the Army and Special forces globally use, but also champ boxers, wreslters, ironmen, martial artists etc - - and believe me, my workouts have FLOORED many a great man and woman from those above categories, and thats saying a hell of a lot.
The price, well, I've spoken a lot about that before - and I'm not going to get into it again. Suffice it to say though that the price on this will go up, up, and UP.
And for "why" - well, I dont feel like typing it all out again - there's plenty in that regard on the blog etc.
But by and large, this guy speak of being depleted for days.
I suppose he means ONE day, since he bought the book on Sunday, a day (or night) after it was released . . .
Second, isn't that a good thing?
Why the heck would someone want workouts that don't challenge him or her?
It befuddles the mind, at least mine, as to why someone would buy a fitness product and expect to be mamsy pamsied and handheld, but apparently lots of folks do.
And that brings me to a point I keep emphasizing.
Rahul Mookerjee doesnt cater to wusses, Mama's boys, lily livered poltroons and Bozos of that nature in general, and the above should be reason enough why.
If not, well, get your brain checked.
And I do ALL I can to REPEL the above.
With good reason.
One bad apple truly DOES spoil the bunch . . .
Anyway, some great comments still to come - watch this space for more!
And you DOERS and real men out there - you'll LOVE this course.
Grab it NOW.
PS - Jay, a friend of mine when he saw the Facebook page for the biz made the comment about "I train, I go to the gym, but not like YOU! Macho man!"
What I wanted to tell him was this -well, why NOT like me, my friend.
Ain't like you can't work up to it - everyone can - I did - and if I did - so can you!
And the workouts he was referring to were here - Pushups - Reverse Pushups - the best darn exercise EVER!
An oldie, but a goldie. Another one is Animal Kingdom Workouts - which is a MUST grab too, my friend, if you're in ANY way serious about your health, strenght and fitness.
One of the workouts, I believe it's #7, but I'm not sure - I dont have the book open in front of me - in Animal Kingdom Workouts is a workout that sometimes stops even me in my tracks, and I'm the one that wrote it.
So tough is it, so BRUTAL that even I have to sometimes wonder if I should do something easier.
I dont, of course!
But here is what Tommy, a former wrassler (high school, I believe) in ... I think Turkey, it was? Currently in china wrote back on Animal Kingdom Workouts (he bought this last week).
"Rahul, this is not just normal exercise workout! This is AWE inspirengly BRUTAL exercise routune!"
Now, I modified what he said a bit, but thats the gist of it obviously. (I simply made it shorter, much like I refer to myself as the Stella Artois of Fitness - that isn't me that said that - I simply shortered the original remark to something easy to type and remember!).
(Especially after one too many Stellas, hehe, and I dont mean the heffas and Stellas Bozo Schofield so loves and adores (their backsides especially)).
Cow Schofield, we should call "her", the amount of grazing Miss Bozo Schofield does. Hehe.
But anyway, Miss Schofield aside . . .
Tommy said some other things also - in short, it was a book that floored him, and this is a former wrassler that said it.
Now, Tommy hasn't wrestled for years.
But there are customers, my friend - that have been into SERIOUS, SERIOUS, physical activity for YEARS - and that have said the same thing about not just Animal Kingdom Workouts, but ALL my books.
Indeed, my training isn't for pussies, as Charles Mitchell, ex cop said.
And it never ever will be.
I will never compromise on who I AM!
Not for sales, not for nuttin (though I do pretty well in the former regard I'd say).
Former Elite Marines.
And of course, Ji Jitsu experts and the like . . . Former Samurais.
The list is legion.
Let me tell you, my friend,even if I dont do a shred or ounce of marketing, my books sell themselves. Most of my customers found me on Amazon for one (where I dont "market"). (or didnt before, at least).
If just for the results ...
And thats the tom tomming for this one - and if you haven't already - pick up Animal Kingdom Workouts now to see the "awe inspiringly brutal" workout that Tommy BE referring to, hehe.
PS - But if you're a Bozo, or a Schofield type, stay away. These workouts are unfeasible for Miss Schofields. Utdderly butterly so!
I ain't talking "wang doodle" pull-ups either here.
(Sorry that I gotta say that up front, my friend, but you'd be amazed at the inquiries I get - I once got from none other Bozo Schofield saying "my wife won't make love to me since I have a small penis").
(He was on Freak-Book under a different nick in my group there. I believe he still is, hehe.I ain't had the heart to kick him out (but I am sure this gives him more ideas which I eagerly await and anticipate so I can share more with y'all!)).
But anyway, God(dess) pity the woman who would be with Bozo, much less marry him or be in a relationship, even one he pays. (with stolen funds).
But anyway, pull-ups.
A long time ago, another old man in China (and again, this was during my afternoon shift workouts) with a great Alsatian dog (thankfully not the pink rat dogs the Chinese so love! - I love German Shepherds. ALWAYS been my favorite) used to see me doing pull-ups out there, and often tried to do what I did.
Of course, he tried as EVERYONE does the "chin up" style.
To his credit, he got ONE out ... almost.
(No Schofield not that one).
Thats another thing, the people constantly carping on chin ups for SHOW, and not doing the REAL strength builder - pull-ups.
I have covered reasons on that one before, so won't get into it again.
But anyway, as he saw me doing 'em, he'd often make the sign with his hand.
Like a flat hand at the base of the neck, as if he were chopping it off.
HE meant, thats how you do pull-ups.
I was doing them to the chest, of course ...
But this old man (not one of my favorites admittedly, but friendly enough anyway - not favorite because he talked too much, and didnt do the thing) had it spot on.
Lots of you have gotten good at pull-ups after investing in my course "Pull-ups from DUD to STUD within a matter of WEEKS!" and yes, it truly is the best out there for newbies at the pull-up, or even Jim Shim guys who claim they're big and can bench Manhattan when they're FAT and can't do a pull-up or hang on to the bar after YEARS of trying at the gym (and after all the advice the idiot trainers at the gym gave 'em).
But lots of you, and I've noticed then when coaching, even those of you that do it without momentum like I tell you to - bring the chin up to the bar, slightly beyond, and then repeat.
Now, this is great.
Thats how it's meant to be done, but for max effect?
You dont just bring your chin across the bar and repeat.
You pause - and you pull up just that little more until your Adam's apple or preferably base of the neck is touching the pull-up bar, THEN you repeat!
This last bit, my friend, if you're using the lats - really CRUNCHES The biceps.
Not the peak.
Not the third intergalactic strand the bros pump.
But the BOTTOM of the muscle, where it starts, and this does more to build trap and bicep strength than anything else, including all the chin-ups you do.
Even the chin up, when it really hits you, you'll feel the muscle "bulging out".
FRom the bottom.
And with the pull-ups, your elbows will naturally come down to LATS if you do 'em right.
Truly lats like bats, hehe.
So remember, much like in life - with the pull-up - the LAST bit is what counts!
Napoloen Hill said it for life of course.
MOst men experience their greatest successes just a step beyond their greatest failure.
Read "Three Feet from Gold" for more on that or a condensed version in Think and Grow Rich.
But for now, thats the point.
PS - It's impossible not to talk shoulders with traps, no? That part of the body that everyon eloves, Bozos, gym goers, women, real strength trainees and so forth?
Well, get building them in a superlative manner with Barnstormer Shoulders now, and turn into a human beast with the routines therein.
Move over "Simple and Effective Diet". THIS is the book that is Simple and Effective, as a customer said!
A month or so ago, or perhaps two months, I'm not sure - my wife made the following comment to me.
"I wonder how much you write about ME!" she said in one of those very (rare) moments of self reflection she has.
She was of course wondering that after the numerous fights, arguments and everything else that goes on both online (and especially when I'm there at home - which is why I live A-LONE for the most part) ...
And given that I rarely, if ever (at least from last year) engage in pissing contests with her (actually I didnt even back in the day), but I'd get annoyed.
Now, it's just like whatever.
Nazi feminism central continues ...
For some inane reason, that makes my wife think she's "won".
So be it.
I'm hardly concerned about winning or losing in such stupid thing - my mind is always focused on those STUPENDOUS goals which I still ain't told you about, and which you would honestly think I'm nuts if I told you!
But anyway ...
The same thing for most people, I'd say.
Bozo Buttblower Schofield (who sometimes seems like a bonafide woman instead of a "sissy man") coud well be a Nazi feminist too.
His dialogs, and the laughable garbage he left as reviews on some of my most inspirational and BESTSELLING books speaketh Volumes to that regard!
But I wonder if he knows other than here how much I "really" write about him.
He'd be SHOCKED. Hehe.
Anyway, I reveal all later ... in that regard.
But for now, where am I going with this?
A, and I've said this before, virtually anything that happens in your life is a GOLDEN opportunity to sell and make money if you know how.
And if you're a DOER.
And two, well, that discount I've been offering ends TODAY, I believe ...
I think it does - yes - I just checked - it DOES.
So if you're indeed interested in my in depth knowledge of fitness and finding out more - check out the products page.
Actually, I think you should start here - The 0 Excuses Fitness System.
Build slow, go from there!
And remember to pick up some of our great motivational reads; you'll love 'em.
PS - "He cheats on his wife, so what can he do to his friends!"
Poor Bozo. The second part of that is self reflecting The first is too, except the jealousy shows from one who "can't get none if he paid for it", hehe.
Anyway, think about it. The book was Fitness Pioneer - and that was the comment he left. That, more than anything else proves why he belongs in a padded cell far away from Hannibal Lecter (for the latter's safety).
As Charles his one time friend said "A known lunatic!"
