In Pull-ups - from STUD to SUPER STUD - within weeks! - I give you several exercises that will take you a long, long time to work up to; let alone start to get good at.
These exercises much like the "swami pull-up" - which is unlike any other you've seen out there, anywhere (much like most of my stuff, if not all) - might seem nigh undoable at the start - but they're not.
Proof is in the pudding, me doing them, so can YOU. Eventually.
In Battletank Shoulders, while the exercises themselves are a bit easier (though not "easy" per se), the workouts might seem almost undoable, or as Charles Mitchell a long time customer once famously said "I can't see how anyone doing these workouts isn't at least 70% Gorilla!".
He's right, and it sparked the next progression in the series - "Profound 70% GORILLA 30% Human handstands".
All this might seem tough.
But there's far more tough stuff out there - including, but not limited to muscle ups (people ask me all the time about these) - - advanced gymnastic movements (that make the muscle up look easy peasy) - one legged and one armed workouts - and more.
But for the most part, although I can do one legged pushups, squats, and pull-ups, for instane, do you see me tom tomming my ability to do them?
For instance, while writing this post, I just dropped down and did 8 one arm pushups on one hand, then the other - something I haven't done since last year, I believe.
Much like what I did yesterday, hehe - "Professor Rahul", as some saw on Instagram was forced to shave off that infamous stubble "bad man stubble" as some call it, hehe - because my electric razor gave up in the middle of shaving, and of course, we all know what happens when one side of your face is shaven, the other not even started on. LOL.
So, I had no choice but to shave fully - which was something I believe my face last saw a razor sometime around Chinese New year 2019. Hehe.
Maybe the hair will go too someday!
Anyway - point is this.
Neither do I do these extreme exercises all the time - my workhorses are what I tell YOU to do.
One arm pushups and squats may look great, the reality though is this - very few people can even do 'em - or do 'em in reps high enough for it to really make a difference, and you focus SO much on form in these that the workout part gets neglected.
Second, they're not exactly the most "natural of things" - for the most part, you use your WHOLE body to move, not just one arm or one limb, right?
That don't mean they're not tough, that they dont build strength, stamina and endurance.
In Squat 101, you will see the one legged squat.
But, it won't take up much of the book either. It'll BE there, but the other versions of the squat on two legs will take priority and precedence.
Point also is this, I might be able to do 'em but for you, you might be at a level where you can only barely even do a pushup, for instance.
Or getting through 50 squats might be a challenge.
If you're at that level, or even intermediate, the last thing you need is a coach or teacher primping and preening, showing off his "muscles or ability or both" to do extreme stuff ...
What you need even when you're an expert and advanced - is to keep focusing on the basics, my friend.
Those basics are what I stick by still, what YOU need to stick by as well the rest of your life. The advanced stuff is great, but most of it is good as a TEST - not a regular workout, but to see the results of your hard work.
You'll understand this the day you knock off your first one arm pushup after months of 150/day ...
And so forth.
Anyway, thats why (and yes, muscle-ups, advanced bridging, gymnastics, plyometrics, all very much still in the works).
Lots to do, my friend.
For now, for you - pick up a product right HERE. There's more than enough to choose from!
I was out and about today for some work (well, not necessarily of my own choosing, but work regardless).
And this entailed meeting a few people.
As I was walking from place A to place B with one person, he introduced me to the second - and then spoke to the second.
"You're getting a bit soft", he laughed, patting "#2" around the waist etc (Which he wasn't fat, perhaps somewhat out of shape, not a lot).
Guy rolled up his sleeves.
Huge arms, tattooed on the bicep.
Showing off "large shoulders" - except the kind of shoulders that look large from the front, but nothing "to back it up".
i.e all chest and arms, very little back, certainly no legs...
I made small talk.
"Ah, so you're into fitness", I noted. "Nice arms!"
And that broke the ice.
"You go to the gym" I noted - while "#1" broke in with "but he's soft inside!" (again, he might have been a bit soft, I Dont know, certainly not near as out of shape as some people I've seen, or a lot!).
"You look like you do a lot of running!" he promptly responded, looking at my legs and "in general".
I laughed, as I jogged up a flight of stairs.
"Never", I said.
But it's interesting, and more testament to the power of SQUATS my friend - daily squats.
Not only do they burn fat off your body and improve your overall health and well being at the rate of warp - not only do they give you solid core and back (and leg) strength - unbeatable stamina - and all the rest - - they also make you LOOK athletic.
Especially, and I believe this is one reason dude said what he did - if you combine with ISOMETRICS.
One of the stretches in the advanced book on isometrics - I'm working upon it daily, and every day I get looser, more limber, flexible - and my legs just "look" different.
Loose around the groin, the kind of legs that can do snap kicks without even thinking about it.
Not the "massive striated" thighs that can barely climb a flight of stairs without collapsing - let alone kick and such.
Lean, muscular, stamina - that is the picture these legs project.
That is the picture YOU should project.
"I do mostly bodyweight" I told him. "Pushups, pull-ups and the rest" ...
I didnt specifically mention squats, maybe I did.
But there it is, my friend. Squats - be it bodyweight or Hindu - or otherwise - are an INDISPENSBALE part of your DAILY fitness routine - the capitalized words have been capitalized for a good reason.
I dont care what else you do, how "fit" you are or not.
If you ain't squatting, and squatting a lot and regularly, you ain't really into fitness...
And that, friend is that.
PS - Learn all about squats, one whole video dedicated to just squats in the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
This might sound contradictory, especially with all I've said about putting in the hard yards, and believe me, all of that is true.
But I was thinking about this as I was listening to a Ben Settle youtube video, and he mentioned something about martial arts (which of course you guys know I've been into at a young age - I still practice my kicks and stuff!) being similar to business in that you ideally want to get to the point where you do LESS - and MAKE MORE.
Now this is something of course I've spoken about for years
And it's true.
When you see those "small" martial artists generate more force with their punches and kicks than you'd ever think possible for someone their size (I wouldn't think that way - steel and whalebone is immensely STRONG!) - you might wonder where all the "strength" is coming from.
The right term to use there is energy - and DIRECTING that energy - and "flow".
All concepts I talk about all the time.
Generating force though the energy in your own body - properly harnessed and directed - is an art that can literally take years upon years to just get to "basic level" at - let alone any sort of mastey.
Same thing with business, writing emails, and so forth.
But to get to the point where you can bang out one email and have it make a ton of money - and repeat that daily - and work for like "one email a day" (however long that takes) - now you have to put in the hard yards to GET to that level.
That said, once you get to that level - and everyone should aspire to get there if you're into business - you do less - make more.
Thats like a slap to the face to those people who believe everything should be all about "grinding through the dust on your elbows through broken glass" to cash that check or whatever.
But it's true.
Think about all the rich people you see - they dont work harder. They work SMARTER.
Their money works for them.
They did, of course, put in the hard yards and go through many a heartbreak to GET to where they are (lots wont talk about it).
I talk about some of it on the Gumption Galore sales page, truth be told, that doesn't even start to scratch the surface of it - but for most people, that alone is way too much to handle (for those that have been there, done it, they will nod and say "amen" - and add on their own stories too).
Its about working to get to a point where you are positioned so you deliver "max blow" with "min "work"".
Now, fitness wise how does this apply?
Well, it's what I keep telling people all along.
If your time is limited, indeed, even if its not, if you're starting out - hell, even if you're experienced - nothing ever beats focusing on the BASICS.
That, for fitness is squats - and pushups - and pull-ups (those that can do 'em).
These truly, along with bridging are the big dog(s) of the fitness world.
Especially LEG work.
I can think of nothing that gets you more out of breath than squats - or climbing stairs and steep hills for one.
Or, running sprints.
Want bigger biceps? SQUAT!
Want a huge chest? Squat!
And so forth.
Same thing for handstand pushups, another "max bang" for your buck exercise.
If you want to fry the upper body within a few minutes flat, and get a workout that most of your contemporaries couldn't get in the gym for an hour - if they can even do it?
What I mention in Battletank Shoulders is the ticket.
None of this takes away the need for hard work.
ANd learning your trade.
And the exercises I teach you.
But train SMART should be the mantra, not necessarily "grind more". (except when it's required).
And those my friend(s) are my thoughts for now.
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.
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".
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.
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".
Something that a lot of you have spoken about, and that I notice all the time, especially when I see videos of her and stuff - is the SHOULDERS!
Lots of you have commented upon the broad shoulders and upper back my little girl has - YES, thats a good thing even for "girls" or ladies!
Makes the waist look far slimmer for one, but beyond that - most people - such as my wife, for instance, or my mom - they put it down to "genetics".
Maybe there's a bit of that at play, I dont know.
But here's the bottom line - her genetics come from mostly me - mentally. Physically, perhaps its a medley - but my family isn't exactly one which exercises a lot, has broad shoulders etc ...
Heck, until the age of 18, or 19 - I was SKINNY, period.
I didnt even have shoulders, almost. Hehe
That ain't my fault, of course, as I was never given the environment to workout in - and more importantly I knew not a SMIDGEON of what I know today - that I learned from being in the trenches.
Most importantly though, it's "learning by example".
The only example I had of physical activity growing up was my dad collapsing in a second or so after hanging on to the pull-up bar - or, when climbing a hill, and asked to do again - "NO WAY!".
Or, the pink dumbells we had lying around at home that were suppose to build "size".
"Thats how you get ripped", I was told.
It ain't either, my friend but you know this, of course.
There was never anyone around to teach me how to do pushups - pullups - or even lift weights - that was "for those nasty BIG people" as my Mom kept saying.
True, the mind the most important muscle of the body to train, but you only train the mind fully if you have a physically FIT body functioning at optimal levels in all regards.
Anyway, enough about me.
My daughter's secret to those shoulders?
Handstands - and handstand pushups.
"Dad, I couldn't even do them", she often says. "But from a young age I saw YOU doing them, and then I started!"
That is the key my friend.
Little kids are like monkeys.
Monkey see, monkey do.
They see you sitting on your arse all day, guess what they will do.
They see you on the dumbphone all day, guess what they will do (no, all the explaining in the world that "this is for work, I earn money from it" wont help either).
You teach by example, period.
As simple as it gets.
That is the reason for videos and such anyway - come to think of it.
My daughter has an example from a young age, unlike yours truly who started at 25 for the most part. That don't mean you can't start late - but it DOES mean those who start EARLY always have an advantage.
Remember, the early bird gets the worm.
Handstands - or handstand pushups - or both - are the secret key not just to building Brahma Bull like Shoulders like BOULDERS!
They're also the KEY to a ripped core - midsection - and so forth.
And fat loss bar none.
Even if all you do all day is hold a handstand for 10 seconds with the right breathing ... whooops!
Most people can barely get into a handstand of any nature, let alone hold.
My current best is 60 seconds at one time, though I'll do more if I have to.
I mix in some pushups with it too ...
Real strength, real training my friend.
Get the ONE AND ONLY course on it - NOW!
And if you're looking for advanced - get Battletank Shoulders, the course people have been raving about for ages. Some of you have been PUTTING off this purchase - big mistake!
Get these NOW.
And remember the lesson!
P.S. - Kiddie Fitness is a must grab for those of you with kids, and if you're looking to progress into freestanding handstands, then build the bridge for it FIRST. By getting "Profound 70% Gorilla 30% Human Handstands".
Here is a recent review for the book -
This book is "short and sweet" and so will this review be.
If you're looking to develop massive upper body strength and power you need this book.
Yet another masterpiece from The Bodyweight Guru, buy the book you won't regret it.
Be .. like an Abrams tank, my friend - the famed M1 Abrams.
That tank, along with the Marines in it was orignally the cover for Battletank Shoulders - before I changed it to the great Doug Hepburn on there NOW - and if ole Doug was here today physically, he'd be the first one recommending these workouts.
Doesn't get any better than a monster - a legend for the AGES - Doug Hepburn recommending something, does it?
But more than strength, more than fat loss, more than gumption, more than building a REAL MAN INDOMITABLE spirit, more than all the benefits I mention on the sales page, here is another I didnt word there- or I didnt mention it explicitly.
These workouts teach you, and give you the DESIRE and will to be BOLD - BRAVE - RELENTLESS, and KEEP GOING NO MATTER WHAT.
I dont care what the situation is, or how hopeless it seems.
You fix your eyes on your TARGET much like the Marines, Navy Seals, and special forces everywhere do, and you block out the bullshit.
Then you become a tank - literally.
You keep rolling, period.
Sometimes, you might get stuck in the mud. Or, your hands might bleed hwile doing that medley of handstand pushups, pull-ups, Gorilla Grip work and a lot of other stuff that is there in the workouts, truly unlike ANY other anyone, myself included has ever put out.
Then you get out and PUSH that damn tank till it moves again on its own.
Yes, they used to do that in World War II when the need arose, most specifically during the German miscalculations in Russia. (when the snow and slush wouldn't let the tanks roll normally).
You do what you can with your bandaged hands - or busted chin (which as I told you, happened to me once when an idiotic pink dog showed up woofing anyway) - or thumb poppingin and out.
You just keep going, period.
You dont stop.
Like my friend from the Marines once told me.
(about the Paras in India toughening their recruits up by sticking their heads in rotten animal carcasses for one)
(and drinking crushed glass during grad time- yes, that happens in reality too! (its like sand once you get it right, but just the thought will make a man out of you!))
"They do all that so they can keep going even if they lose an eye or whatever it is".
And he is right. Spot on.
You BULLDOZE through obstacles, or you make your way around them, you make them disappear.
You just do it, you just KEEP doing it!
And there it stands, my friend.
In life, fitness, anything - THAT is the spirit required.
Far too few people have it these days.
And the workouts in this book, the SPIRIT in which I wrote it, it will bring you that indomitable WILL and GUMPTION to keep going, keep going, no matter what, and ultimately GET to where you WANT to be.
And that, my friend is really all that is needed. (and what it is all about, truly about).
NEVER GIVE UP - on any goal - fitness or anything, for if you persist, you shall GET. It's as simple as that.
I'm sure you agree!
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!
