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.
Some of the best books, my friend, just "happen".
Despite a few customers asking me for a while about a book on isometrics last year, I thought - honestly - seriously - it would be the last thing I ever wrote.
I mean, me, with all the "movement" I do - and isometrics?
But one night, something CLICKED.
Amidst all the movement I did, I paused - hit rewind - and saw HOW I did all of it.
I looked at the stretches NO-ONE does these days. I looked at How I did those - how I breathed while doing 'em - most importantly what I thought both before - and after - and during doing 'em.
And how I felt, better than a massage almost (done by GIRLS, hehe).
I still remember going to a massage three years ago though done by a middle aged man.
My wife shrieked.
"By a man!!!!"
"How the hell did you even... "
But it wasn't the oil massage she had told me to get (she was right. Hehe. That I got later!).
It was a MEDICINAL massage.
WITH clothes on.
ANd the way I felt, like a billion bucks from pressing and squeezing - his, of course.
The way he cracked my joints was like nothing else, yet, as he did, I recalled I'd been doing a lot of the same stuff myself, and anyway, isometrics?
The Gama used them.
Way simpler techniques that taught in the book, and along with other things, specifically, Luimberjack "Lodestone" Fitness - and the 0 Excuses Fitness System - look at the results it brought him - and me.
Naturally, the Bozos will think I'm equating myself to the Gama.
I ain't either.
he's the greatest!
I'm simply the Stella Artois of Bodyweight Culture, par excellence - and I wasn't even the one that said that. Hehe.
But anyway ... remember that foot injury I wrote to you about?
Climbing and runing up and down hills galore - hence, I teach you HOW to do it right (no, it is NOT - I repeat - NOT - "just walking or running!") in Advanced Hill Training.
It got so wierd at a time I had a golf sized lump on the front of my foot.
Oddly, unlike my swollen foot years ago which made me scream in pain when I TOUCHED it (the whole foot was swollen big time) - you could squeeze or pummel away at this lump - I wouldn't feel a thing.
Always extremes, yours truly.
Life, fitness, everything.
So it shall REMAIN.
But that lump never went away, and kept re-appearing when I did Jump rope workouts for one.
Yet, one of the stretches I teach you in Isometric and Flexibility Training, for one ... the "heels to butt" stretch which a lot of people cannot even do - stage one, that is - stage two will be in Volume TWO - another super stretch and strenghtener ...
It cured it.
Nothing doing, just a few minutes of sitting in that pose, then the patented Rahul Mookerjee squat, and calf stretches ...
Just like that!
Trust me, these exercises can strengthen weak links like never before - but they can also heal EXISTING injuries faster than almost anything else you've ever done!
Along with the books above, remember to get your mitts on the book on isometrics too - truly another "Special one" "in the flow" !
Thank me later if you so choose, hehe. Entirely up to you!
But DO BENEFIT yourself!
Battletank Shoulders, when it came out was priced at $39.99 for the Kindle version, I believe, if memory serves me right.
It remains one of the best courses I've ever put out, a power packed little ditty basically - I dont even know if it extends beyond 50 pages!
Maybe it does, but not a lot more.
That info though is invaluable, friend, and packs more power than 10 Tom Tom's could in 10,000 pages or more.
And this book is one of the ones I never changed after putting out - along with Pull-ups - from STUD to SUPER STUD - within weeks!
For damn good reason.
They dont need to be.
Not so the above two books.
Neither did the length of the books change.
The length did change (no pun intended) for the last three books, and the price went up too.
Not by a factor of 5 though.
(Paperback currently retails at $300)
Anyway, an idiot, whose been following me for years recently could not help himself.
"Sir, can it oRigInal price of $39.9999"
HE's been writing to me abuot this for ages, I ain't responded - personally, not even now. SOme things are just not worthy of my very valuable time, friend.
I'd rathe sit on the throne, to be honest, than answer such idiotic stuff.
But it did bring up an interesting point, one the wackos are sure to hate and "call me out" on (they're really calling themselves out).
Price, price, price.
Battletank Shoulders didnt go up to 5 times the price it was originally priced at simply to fill my pockets.
Thats how much the info was worth, so it went up.
It went up steadily, because I wanted to give ALL The doers who DO a fair shot at buying it before the price shot UP.
My books are priced high friend for two reason.
One, most importantly, the sheer and unparalled valued you get from 'em - truly like nothing you've seen ever.
And two, almost as importantly, to keep price wankers away ...
I cannot STAND the latter category!
True, if you write to me with a genunie problem or issue, I'll almost always work with you on it...
But if it's just Tom Tom's claiming that their "purse is empty" as this idiot did (purse??? Wallet?? And in any case, the wALLET should never be empty, period!) ...
... yet, this same person bitches about losing weight.
"Sir, I eat at Domino PIZZA four times a week", he sent.
No idea if that means delivery or take out.
(Personally, I hate Dominos anywhere in the world, Pizza Hut too. Papa Johns so so, but the real stuff, the genuine Italian pizzas!) ...
And GREEK food- I love it (the genuine stuff, lambs etc).
This Bozo spends lots of money on pizza and likely other stuff, when quizzed about it, he acts like "Of course! It costs that much, so I spend!"
Then he's told, well, the book costs that much, so ...
"Huh?? But that just book!"
THESE, my friend, are the idiots I want to avoid ...
They'll spend the world on inanities, yet, something that doesnt help them Tom Tom, virtue signal, look good, or "feel good temporarily" (life's tough, I'm giving myself a much needed breeeeeeeeeeeeaaaakkkkk!) and so forth.
But the real stuff, they piss and moan.
He's being banned from the list as we speak (third time out).
And thats why I keep exhorting you, friend, if you ain't yet, to place your pre-order for Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness, because trust me, you WILL Want it later. I get that, but I also get the price will RISE.
So should you, friend, if you ain't done it as yet.
True, its your money.
True, I'd be the last one to tell you how to spend it... or how to piss it down the drain, or invest it, or what have you. Hey, your money, your choice!
But I think I'm perfectly within my rights to say everything else, given the logic behind it!
PS - Another SHINING EXAMPLE OF IDIOCY and then some - RIGHT HERE!
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!
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!
And it left me torched, my friend - well, somewhat torched, and while most of that was due to the ape like workout I did yesterday, this contributed.
Speaking of which, the looks I'm getting with my chest bursting out of my shirt these days (literally, I've been on a shopping spree for new T shirts and shorts - the former is too tight around the upper body, and billows around the waist, and the latter - well, I'm dropping ANOTHER size!) ... and giving away old stuff etc (well, trying to - but I managed to give a lot of it away) (no I dont do it for money) ... I'm starting to look more and more like an APE.
An actual ape.
As I once told my little girl years ago when monkeys showed up at the park where I was training, and the entire populace scattered like roaches in light.
Scurried, I should say, much like what happens in China when even a DROP of rain falls ... the entire country RUSHES for cover.
God Forbid even a tiny drop of rain ... ah, but Schofield knows a lot about tiny drops. LOL.
Anyway - I told my daughter this.
"They don't mess wth me!" I laughed. "They just think it's another monkey monkeying around!"
And they didnt, actually. One look at me, and the monkeys take off for other more interesting pastures - people with backpacks, food etc.
Reminds of me of "Manki Point" I visited in Kasuali, INdia in 2009 or so I believe.
A monkey snatched a lady's handbag STRAIGHT out of her hand and she emittted a yowl louder than the Bozo does every night when he ...ah. I'll stop. LOL.
(But he's on a bender again, from what I gather from friends).
Anyway, so I got done with an EQUIPMENT based short workout for a change (other than the chinning bar, though I'm abotu to go hit that soon too).
No, Bozo, not "that sort of hit to the backside".
But this workout, my friend was something that Teddy Roosevelt did in the White House years back - or a variant of it.
And truth be told, it left my triceps and upper abs BUZZING.
Most people, even "fit people" CANNOT do the ab roller well when they first start.
In fact, if you try rolling it out fully, you'll likely crash flat on your face.
And if you're too FAT - then you'll shake like most do when they first get into the table position shown in Pushup Central - except in reverse. Like a maple leaf in Toronto, or something like that.
Or, the handles will BREAK as you do 'em (so remember, if you get this equipment which I highly recommened, please do not "infest the thrift stores" and hang around in alleys etc waiting for handouts, or "20 dollar you know what offers" like Bozo Schofield does).
Please DO get it from a decent fitness store ...
But anyway, and back to being overweight.
Or, you won't be able to do it, period!
And my friend, there are literally so many variant workouts you can do with this that Ic ould write a book on this alonel I might just do that, actually....
But anyway, Lumberjack Fitness will contain THIS equipment amongst many others.
And it's a book almost done, but the computer has got a touch of the Bozo too apparently from afar, and once things calm down on that front, I'll have it out to YOU!
I know MANY of you are anxiously awaiting it.
So am I.
Patience, grasshopper - good things come to those that wait, hehe. They truly DO!
But on that note, there is an exercise even better than the ab roller (which if done right along with other stuff, will give you the ripped ab look within a few days flat and leave your ENTIRE BODY torched within a few minutes).
The "extended" arm pushup shown in Pushup Central.
Then again, they're all special.
But even GETTING into position in that one is so tough that I wouldn't recommend you try it until you get good - damn good - at some of the other variants therein.
And it requires no equipment, obviously, but is modeled on the same action.
And if you mix and match these two - oh - my.
Speaking of which, I'm off to do just that.
PS - The Bozo claimed "A book in pishups. Really! Boring ... Badly written too!"
Find out for yourself right HERE, hehe.
PS #2 - for you marketers out there, the Bozo is possibly truly manna from Heaven (or others like him). LOL! Feel free to mention him in your newsletters too (from what I see someone already DID, hehe). The more the merrier, as his one time friend Charles (who he trolls being "Charlie Bandana" or Charles Rutherford the XXV) said, LOL.
PPS - (edit) NO mention of ab training would be complete without the BEST damn course on ABS right HERE - Corrugated Core. Check it out NOW.
Do y'all remember the tale of the Korean dude (I dont know if I said he was Korean or not) that back in the day my college buddy and me talked about?
I DID mention the time I was knocking out pushups, and my buddy showed up an hour or so early to drink, saw me working out - grinned - and then we got together at the original appointed time?
His look of approval said it ALL, hehe.
And I mentioned how he thought doing 50 pushups at one shot was great - but anyone that can do 50 pull-ups at one shot - now that - is - SUPER STUD!
He didnt use those terms, but he meant it, and he was right.
(And to all the idiots out there who claim it's just pushups, well, question for YOU.
How many can YOU do at one shot - even the simplest pushup?
How many pull-ups can YOU do? If at all?)
The answer to the above, my friend, will say it ALL.
But then we spoke about Korean dude, heavily into martial artists, and doing them on his fingertips - 50 at one go.
Now thats good going!
I can do 'em - that many, yes. Perhaps more.
And as the great Charles Mitchell once said, this course is great because it kicks BOOTY.
He hates workouts that dont challenge him.
And he's right to do so!
Too many of the books out there give you mamsy pamsy flimsy "this that"progressions, and cater to the whiners and moaners.
I get straight to the REAL DEAL (which Charles said I was, and he's damn right).
But anyway, last I spoke to him, he was still working hard on some of the fingertip pushups in Pushup Central - variations you do NOT see in my other books (for a good reason) - and said they were "almost impossible to do".
He's right, hehe.
But anyway, cement ...
I've seen people do pushups on CEMENT Blocks.
I dont know if was the Spetsnaz I saw, or just fitness people in general, I can't recall.
But there it is, dude pounding out pushups - on fingertips - on cement blocks.
Let me tell you, that HURTS.
And will make a MAN - a REAL MAN out of you.
It's hard enough doing 'em on a paved cement floor, so for you guys - i'd advocate a carpet or perhaps mat, or grass (so long as it isn't WET - nasty injury waiting to happen!!)
There is a reason though that martial artists do these all the time.
One, well, see the "chair pushup" I mention in Pushup Central.
An oldie, but goldie.
DO it first - and then YAP, bro.
And second, because the fingertip pushup is one of the keys to super strength and a rock solid CRUSHING grip.
APE like grip.
I mention this as a secret in Gorilla Grip,and all the courses on pull-ups.
While yeah, pull-ups work the grip like there's no tomorrow, for the ultimate, you simply MUST mix them in with fingertip pushups!!
And as for the idiots that don't believe me?
Well, there was a lengthy blue flame review left ont he Amazon UK page for Gorilla Grip in 2017, and I've mentioned that enough times, but part of it I'll do so again here.
"I did pull-ups and chin-ups for years, but it did not give me a grip like steel and fingers like iron pliers".
RM - Don't know what style of pull-up or chin up this Bozo was doing. . .
"Something that particularly annoyed me was he (yours truly) seems to link his workout with the cachet of the Marines. He says his grip got better and stronger without doing a single pull-up for months but he doesn't mention what he did!"
RM - This idiot apparently never read the first (opening) part of the book where BOTH things are mentioned and explained.
"He mentions Bert Asserati and the one arm handstand, but there's no proof! Maybe it's only strong people - naturally strong people ..."
RM - Amazingly enough this nutjob never offered any proof for HIS assertion.
And I've gone in depth ENOUGH on this genetics and "naturally strong" crap.
No-one is naturally this or that, my friend.
Those of us that want it work for it - fight for it - and get it.
And have been doing so all our lives, some more so than others in all regards.
Enough with the idiot though ...
Last, but not least, done RIGHT - fingertip pushups won't hurt your fingers.
They'lld o the opposite.
Think building up your fingers to the point you can thrust them through BLOCKS of cements.
Think the MOTION with which these experts do it.
Think crushing cans of Coke with your bare (bear) hands - or like Dan Hodge did at 80 plus, crush APPLES!
THAT, my friend, is what fingertip pushups can and will do for you.
Move over bozos, I'd say to anyone that complains about 'em!
And thats it. Back soon!
PS #2 - The idiot also said this.
"The author has written a lot of other books, most even more expensive (remember, at the time, Gorilla Grip on Amazon was priced at a throwaway price ) making similar claims. I have a feeling he gives out minimum information for maximum gain".
Emphasis on the "expensive" part and what I said about "blue flame central".
And that, my friend says it all, hehe.
(Not to mention what this jackass says about minimum info. Clearly he hasn't DONE any of the workouts I've mentioned, more comprehensive than anything else out there in that regard).
But he, of course is nothing compared to the one and only Bozo Schofield, who reviews Animal Kingdom Workouts by saying "I have so much money to burn, so I keep coming back to Rahul's work!"
Sage, in terms of incompetence, and sheer "idiocy" (not to mention BROKE as a you know what) shining through. LOL.
Anyway, enough on the jackasses and moron-jobs. Back soon!
In Pushup Central, an "innocent sounding but in reality a MAGNUM opus on the worlds (possibly) oldest, most effective (in my opinion) and DIVERSE" exercise (the opinion part is mine, but the rest are words from a customer I mentioned yesterday "John Walker" from the UK - a great guy and a DOER PAR EXCELLENCE!) ...I give you no less than 55 different ways to do pushups and give you workouts that will last you a lifetime - and get you in shape right quick.
REAL quick, I might add, if you just do.
The Bozo fools (Schofield Blowfield of course, who else, hehe) trolled the book by saying "Really! A book on just pishups! ...Boring!"
I dont know about you, but this sort of comment is so stupid it makes me want to laugh out loud rather than get angry.
Bozo is trying to make it sound like it's a fiction book (boring??).
Hey, Schofield, if you'd even do ONE of the exercises I'ved mentioned in them, you'd be flat on your stomach with no energy left for the tongue workouts you so diligently engage in
Come to think of it, thats perhaps the goal anyway for you (to the Bozo that is).
But anyway, getting back to it ...
55 different ways.
Truth is, and trust me bro - I could put out 555 different ways to do pushups and I still wouldn't scratch the surface of this great exercise.
Ok, thats a bit of an exagerration perhaps, but you get the point.
Take the FIRST style of pushup in the book, for instance.
The humble ole "regular grip" pushup which most people think when they think pushups.
Right off the top of my head, right NOW, and I'm not even fully awake (the bear takes a while to wake up, hehe) ..I can think of no less than TEN different ways to do just THIS pushup - with the SAME hand and foot positioning.
At least 10 different ways, and 10 different workouts.
So, 550 different ways wouldn't be a stretch, and neither would 555 ...
The key, my friend, lies in changing the mental pictures you have of this great exercise.
Most people think of pull-ups as being the champ of fitness.
The pull-up IS one of the toughest exercises out there, and it makes you feel like a SUPERHERO - or SUPER STUD (along with the handstand pushup, of course).
But getting back to pushups - I've often touted them as being the big dog of fitness, and rightfully so.
When all you have is a floor - and we all have that - and a wall - guess what.
You can get the workout of your LIFE (see 0 Excuses Fitness - I've made mention of pull-ups in there, but you do NOT need 'em - or I should say, yes, you should do 'em - but again - pushups, squats and bridging will get you int he best shape of your life - and that sort of routine is what pro boxers, wrasslers, and champ athletes follow all over the world).
Dont get me wrong.
Pull-ups are damn important too.
But pushups my friend - the mental picture most people have is style #1 that I mention in the book, and hence the "pah! JUst pushups!"
(I am not referring to Bozo Blowfield here, as he's clearly trolling - I'm referring to people in general).
And here's the thing.
Well, if it's just pushups, can YOU give me 100 of them NOW?
Or even 10 slow proper ones?
If it's most people we're talking about, includin Muscle Maniacs, th answer would probably be NO.
So my point is this.
Don't be lazy.
Work these exercises HARD, hard, HARD.
And change the mental picture you have of pushups FIRST.
And of course, get the course right HERE.
No fancy shmancy marketing on this one, sorry. Just a brutally effective "get it", and thereeth endeth this email.
This might come across as a surprise to many of you on this list, and indeed many that are reading it - given my preference for NOT eating "when most people tell me to".
Given my GREAT gains on an admittedly (so the idiots and experts) say a shitty diet, and breaking cardinal rule #1 of eating (I mention this as the SECRET - or one of them - to super fitness and even "ripped" if you want that in the Simple and Effective Diet - which by the way is GRATIS with your purchase for the 0 Excuses Fitness System).
And on that note, some free entertainement first.
The "Glyn Files" as a friend of mine and REAL STRONGMAN - and a DOER in life -a nd FITNESS put it, hehe.
Latest on that is that the Bozo apparently gave up after his bender last night, but apparently not.
Seems to be on a weeklong bender (poor UK, hehe).
And though his stuiff, signups etc go straight to "trash" I occasionally check Trash, because some of my best customers are from the UK and I dont want email signs up etc landing in the "trash".
Many reasons why folks don't get emails ... And NOT all of them are because they dont want to get 'em (but yeah, if YOU signed up, and don't get the email, and do NOT ask me WHY, then you WILL be deleted, because it shows you dont WANT to hear from me bro).
More on "repelling what you dont want there" (from me).
But anyway, the Bozo is ready to implode into a fat, chubby, bloated mess of "eww".
Latest names he signed up for with?
Other than "RahulisafitnessGod", of course, which I mentioned last night.
It's absolutely hilarious - given the next name he signed up with for was "Bozo Schofield" (he copied and pasted a customer name to an email address which of course went straight to junk because it's a non existent email, hehe) ...
The Bozo truly IS projecting. As he always does. LOL.
Funny part, even if he meant that for me, I'm not exactly the most favorite, or even close to it, person on my own Mama's list. LOL!
Anyway, I was chowing down on corn between sets of pull-ups, and I remember my wife once telling me the following back in the day (she picked up some roasted corn on a cob for me).
"Don't stand upside down!"
(this was said in Hindi!)
"After eating! Your stomach won't magically digest it! I'm not cleaning up the puke!"
Now, I can understand why she said that - I often tell my little girl not to do that.
And yours truly does NOT workout on a full stomach, or ANYWHERE NEAR IT for reasons I've specified a lot of times.
But, SOMETIMES, somethings ...
Look, I was mid way through the workout, first off.
And second, if it's a couple of bowls of boiled corn, that digests pretty quickly when you're doing the REAL thing.
I dont think it would have made me puke (though yeah, I stopped doing handstands because my wife then would have a coronary, lol - and immediately switched to)?
That old favorite - and a KILLER exercise that makes men out of gym bimbos, bozos, preeners, posers, pumpers and the like REAL QUICK.
It's mentioned in the Animal Kingdom Workouts course, a course that will (according to a customer) truly make you join the ranks of the SUPERHUMANS.
And, according to me, you'll never have erectile dysfunction and "I want a stud in the bedroom, not just GYM!" complaints and snickers about "women only want men who can do THAT thing well!" problems again once you get on that course, but for now, this ain't about putting the big V outta biz, this is about YOU - and the bear crawl.
And I remember telling my daughter, grinning from ear to ear.
Well, the bear eats - and ends up shitting at the same time, and moving, doesnt it?
And look at monkeys.
Chowing down on bananas all day while swinging from limb to limb.
BIt extreme I know.
And no, I dont advocate YOU to jump into a workout while or after a heavy meal, but sometimes, a bit of a snack if you need one?
(I dont - I did not then either - I just love me some roasted corn on the cob!)
Go for it.
The Earth will still revolve, hehe.
And that, my friend is that.
I'll be back soon!
PS - Had a great conversation a while ago with a great guy "Dejon" . Shout out - kudos to YOU bro!
(yes, yours truly DOES get on the dumb phone sometimes, hehe).
And not so much my favorite animal (well, favorite BIG cat I should say) - the tiger.
Favorite animal are the mighty GRIZZLY and the tiger both!
Jaguars and leopards too - I love 'em, especially the former, and more on that later.
Cheetahs for some reason I never took a fancy to. Many bestselling authors have though - most notably James Hadley Chase who wrote the classic book "The Vulture is a patient bird" about a madman recluse deep in South Africa (the jungle) - and a diamond that a group of city slickers along with a gorgeous dame attempt to retrieve.
The Jewel of Borgia, or something it was. A jewel into which you could insert poison and then twist, and within 12 hours the person would die.
Or pass, on, whichever.
But the madman in the book had a cheetah right next to him - and this seems to have been copied by many a Bollywood potboiler too, where the baddies for whatever reason seem to love cheetahs.
Dont get me wrong.
It's a bad ass, sure. It can run like the wind!
And I could have put the cheetah on the cover of the book and made a ton more sale sthan I do now, but I WON'T.
Well, first a bit on the much over hyped in my opinion LION.
My buddy Vincent and me have an ongoing argument about who would win between a tiger and a lion.
I say a tiger any day of the week.
He used to say that too, but he saw a match in Thailand or someplace where the tiger got it's butt kicked, but that was just one match, I keep telling him.
Tigers are the KING of the jungle in my opinion, lions a distance second - and the male lions are downright LAZY, I'd say.
They don't even live int he jungle!
All looks and no "roar" (against the tiger that is, of course!).
But anyway, I still remember a visit to the zoo back in the day.
Mr White Tiger was sleepily staring at visitors through the enclosure.
(but dont be fooled - a madman jumped into the enclosure, and he was a goner almost instantly - true story in India).
Mr. Lion was a huge male lion literally snoring after a massive meal I'd imagine. And he was least bothered or interested by the visitors gaggling at him.
But the jaguar.
Locked up in a steel cage for whatever reason, and I felt for this magnificent BEAST !!
The tiger is the KING.
The lion is proably the laziest.
The Jaguar though my friend is just a MEAN mean cat - and you can see it in its eyes!
Even BABY Jaguars look like they're ready to pounce and do what they do best - KILL!
The tiger has a spiritual look to it.
The jaguar - nothing doing!
That damn thign roared at me through the cage, and I felt awe and a CHILL (in a good way) go up my spine.
NOW THATS what I BE TALKING ABOUT!
The real deal!
And jaguars, my friend, are probably the perfect example of strength, speed and stealth in a small(er) package - not to mention I believe they have the strongest bite force amongst the big cats ...
And the speed ... the DEMON SPEED!
I dont know.
But the "mean come GET IT!" vibe I get off those lovely jaguars is in part what caused me to name it after these royal beasts.
And that, my frind is that.
Train like a cat and do the uphill sprints - and YOU too will understand what it means like to be SUPREMELY fit - and feeling like a WILD CAT ready to pounce all day long!
PS - Not to mention, if you're one of the types that loves to burn the candle at both ends, then you absolutely DO NEED that course!
