Slow Mo pull-ups

Most of the literature out there on pull-ups focuses, sadly on rep counts - and not FORM. 

Most of the books out there that teach FORM on pull-ups - teach it WRONG. 

Sadly again. 

And what is most galling is a tip that literally makes your pull-up numbers sky rocket, and upper body strength go STRAIGHT through the roof - is HOW you grip the bar. 

And  MOST people get it wrong, even seasoned fitness fanatics. 

I cannot tell you how many times I've almost thrown a hissy when I see people kipping during pull-ups (an utterly useless practice in terms of bettering form - it does the opposite - in terms of improving strength, or conditioning - maybe if you're trying to save your life, you use your legs, but not otherwise!) - or when gripping the bar when doing either pull-ups or another hidden gem - monkey bar work (if they ever do it, precious few people have the gumption to take that one "callus deep" as it were). 

My two books "Gorilla Grip" - and "Pull-ups from Dud to Stud within a matter of weeks!" - as well as the ADVANCED book on pull-ups i.e. "Pull-ups from STUD to SUPER STUD within WEEKS!" explain these secrets very well. 

If you're someone that has been paying attention to what I write here and not simply thinking "free, free" - then you know the tip, or part of it already. 

But that ain't what this one is about. 

This is about - SPEED. 

Pull-ups - especially the pulling up part - should be done SMOOTHLY for one, and in a CONTROLLED manner, those jerky "by all means possible" pull-ups dont cut it, friend. 

They only give you pulled shoulders and tendonitis amongst others (speaking from personal experience back in the day here). 

While speed is somewhat important, ideally, when getting a good pull-up workout in, the movement upwards should be explosive, and take 1-1.2 seconds at most (with a brief pause once the chin is over the bar, not AT THE BAR!!) (OVER!) ... and then smoothly CONTROLLED back down, perhaps another 1.3 seconds - while you BREATHE correctly, another huge reason for people failing at pull-ups, most forget to breathe or hold their breath - how has been covered in the books. 

And, in the 0 Excuses Fitness System too - I give you tips on how to RECOVER from hard "puffing" workouts as well in the System if you really listen to what I say! 

But despite the 2.5 second pull-up being a great workout, there are ways to make it tougher - equally productive if not more. 

I did 25 pull-ups in my workout yesterday. 

But they felt like 75. 

Most of everything was done SLOW MO. 

I paused for five seconds at the TOP of each pull-up, really feeling the lats and grip with chin over the bar. 

I did dead hangs for 10 seconds before going onto the next rep - without letting go of the bar. 

On the way up, I made sure to slowly go up - ironing out kinks in an already "perfect" technique - I took maybe 5 seconds up, 4 down ... 

In the middle of all this, I kept doing long dead hangs with thick grips. 

Believe me, this workout wasn't easy. 

And believe me when I tell you, THIS workout will make YOU sore for DAYS if you do it right!

As will most of the workouts in the books mentioned if you do 'em RIGHT. 

I'm not saying go this slow all the time - but be honest, how many times have you heard about these slow mo workouts as opposed to "fast"! 

Slow, even with Animal Kingdom Workouts often taxes everything DEEP down inside. 

It sparks muscle growth like never before. 

It irons out and rectifies weakenesses in your tendons, ligaments and joints. 

IT strengthens the grip beyond belief. 

And so much more, my friend. 

Be sure and try some of these slow mo workouts in terms of pull-ups, or perhaps even pushups every so often. 

And, get back to me and tell me how it feels. 

OK, all for now. 

And before I forget : GET the books above. Best ever!

OK, short answer? 

Because yours truly used to be one "par excellence" not so long ago (ok, more than 10 years ago, but I was fat at ages before that too, at ages where I was supposed to be at my prime!). 

(Some may say I am too harsh on myself and too demanding, maybe so - but I'd rather that than be content with living life as a fat blobby slob - or a slobby blob like Bozo Schofield, hehe, replete with slobber all up and down - but we wont go there!) ... (and truth be told, I WAS a phat phock at certain times - the covers of Shoulders like Boulders! and Pull-ups - from DUD to STUD within a matter of weeks! prove not just that but the facts and proven in the subsequent books that my exercises WORK and people of any SIZE - I mean SIZE - can do 'em - but being FAT will definitely be a huge, huge hindrance!). 

So, how did I do them you might ask? 

We'll get into that below. 

But first, long answer. 

Because I used to be one par excellence, can spot 'em from a mile away and I can instinctively sense by looking at them how their diet is, what sort of training they DO - not just talk about - or have done in the PAST - and so forth. 

This might sound strange to some. 

it's really not. 

Ask any class boxer to spot an untrained fighter in a room full of trained fighters, he'll do in the space of an instant. 

Ask Jason Bourne all about gut feelings, and he'll tell you - or ask me. Hehe. 

Ask me about how I make my almost always accurate predictions on things ... 

Gut feeling when backed up with reason and logic, though not necessarily in that manner, is simply RIGHT. 

And all phat phocks I've seen, regardless of where they are, where they live, where they were born etc - or color, race etc - have the following common characterestics. 

One, a terrible diet. 

I know - because I trained hard, and I ate extra hard too. Hehe. 

Sure, Eat More Weigh Less works - but not if you stuff your gullet to the point moving next day makes you burp out last night's food - if you get my drift. 

A lot of phat phocks, and no I ain't naming no-one in particular would do well to eat less - a  LOT less - and FAST more while working out more. 

And ,follow some of the tips I give you in the Simple and Effective Diet! 

Fasting isn't covered in that book, maybe in a later version - or a book of it's own. We'll see, it's a topic I have very in depth and personal knowledge of, and I'm constantly learning even at this point (you never stop learning, as I say in 0 Excuses Fitness). 

They also DRINK too much - beer in particular. 

Nothing wrong with either of the above if you choose to, but it'll make you fat - simple as that. Outraining a bad diet can be done, but if you BOMBARD your body daily with nothing but tons of bad, eventually it will cave in - simple as that. 

Second, I've noticed MOST, if not all - are "happily married" or "family men" (note this one doesnt apply to women as much as it does MEN) or what not. 

Nothing at all wrong with that either. 

Hey. 

Family is the most important - I get it!

But, I've written about this before - when you're ON your lonesome, when you have no constant nagging, familial duties and such - and not to mention, that good ole home cooking - well, it's a lot easier to simply live caveman style, train hard, and (naturally) eat less - and get into the best shape of your life!

Again, with the right exercises. 

And I should know - again. 

Dont believe me? 

Mickey: Well, Rock, let's put it this way. Three years ago, you were supernatural. You was hard and nasty. You had this cast iron jaw. But then, the worst thing happened to you that could happen to any fighter. You got civilized. Don't worry, kid. You know, presidents retire, generals retire, horses retire, Man o War retired. They put him out to stud. That's what you should've done, retire.

I ain't getting into the retirement part here. Personally, in Zero to Hero I tell you it aint all its cracked up to be, but if you're talking physcially in the ring, ole Mickey had it spot on in terms of what was going on with Rock at that time - happily married, lots of dough, no INCENTIVE - to do better!

Incentive, my friend, is a huge, huge motivator - when you dont HAVE what you want, you'll naturally work your bollocks off to GET it - period! 

I can give you plenty of more examples, but what I'm saying about is true. I've seen so many lean and mean guys get married, and then ... "happy and fat" - again, aint nothing wrong with that, happens to women too, but most strikingly in men. 

SOME men are exceptions - Brooks Kubik being one, but I doubt anyone works grip and core as hard as he does (though I'll give him close competition on grip work, hehe). 

And even he was divorced for long periods in the middle, I believe ... 

Hey, it happens - take a look at prisoners - and the shape they manage to get in despite crap diets and despite not always having access to weights and such. 

Sure, bodyweight workouts play a huge part in that. 

What also plays a huge role in it is that they dont need to worry about paying bills, going to work, writing emails or what not (unless they're Gregory David Roberts writing their books on sheets of paper first, having the gumption to continue despite a 1000 page book being torn up TWICE ..) .. 

Third, almost ALL of them eat the so called healthiest meal of the day - breakfast - and load up way more than they need to, followed by lunch, and dinner. 

Breakfast like a king, eat like a prince, dine like a pauper - that advice is good, but it was also intended for when men did a lot of physical labor, not just move from couch to computer to bed and the fridge/bathroom in between.

Most do all three like kings x 10. 

Again, FASTING. 

And tossing some of the conventional advice out of the window like I do in the Simple and Effective Diet

As for the family part, I sure wouldn't tell you to toss family. 

What I WOULD tell you though is this happily married mirage of "wife happy, family happy" that most men are content to live in - well not most, a lot are waking up these days (though only because of the state the world is in!) - is just that, a mirage. 

I've told men forever that the chances of them finding that one gem amongst the rabble is slim and next to town, and slim just left town. 

And that someday, eventually, they'll find out the truism which I keep explaining to them i.e. its all about MONEY. 

They dont listen, and claim I rant, then the same thing happens to them years later, then they learn. Ah well. Such is life! 

But fitness wise, have the family - have as many as you want, but you have to retain a bit of caveman, my friend in order to stay in super "lean and mean - hungry!" shape. 

Simple fact of life... 

So, those are three common traits - there are more, of course. 

And again, I should know. 

I was a phat phock myself! 

Fourth - I'll end with this one - a tendency to do WAY less cardio and less intense than you should, claiming "youre big, not fat". 

And so forth. 

I'll stop here. 

But that should give you plenty of reasons to chew upon as well as answer the "why" question ... for now. 

More later!

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

My, my, my. 

If there ever was a case of liberals not just manipulating the media, but gratitiously twisting well known FACTS around i.e. "gaslighting" (like my wife loves to do) in a manner that the other guy starts to truly doubt himself - it is this one - Replacement theories, hunting RINOs: How GOP candidates, lawmakers push 'dangerous' language (yahoo.com)

Now, before I get into it ... 

Ever notice the news is becoming even more ILLOGICAL and stupid than ever my friend? 

You hear nonsense about how "Russa is losing the war" day by day (and no I'm not getting into the politics of it on that one)  - yet ground realities? 

A whiny Ukranian President that pretty much brought this on himself by NOT preparing in advance - by living in fantasy land i.e. how could he have not predicted this would happen (unless he did, and we dont know it!) and sadly, unfortunately, a lot of people in Ukraine who want no part of this war or the politics are suffering horribly daily. . . and the ground reality "on the ground". 

But yeah, listen to Joe Bidens nonsense on the Putin Price Hike (I mean really, inflation was rampant even before that, it has exactly F all to do with the current war, except that made the markets even more jittery) - how "Putin is losing" and so forth - all such utterly illogical crap that I have to wonder who reads all this (wait, I know, the sheeple) - and who believes this junk? Oh yeah, the sheep do ... 

Anyway, this isnt about war (despite that being according to many people "all you hear these days" along wth inflation) (if youre on my list, you hear a hell of a lot more too, hehe, including about my life changing PRODUCTS) ... 

... it's about the article referenced above. 

Apparently anything the right says these days is "dangerous" and "contributes to violence" and so forth ... 

Hmm... 

FACTS, anyone? 

The liberal left is ready to defund the police - and then cries Wolf upon crime increasing - and arms themselves to the teeth to defend against the "proud boys" - where is the logic in that (not to mention fully supports extending this war in Ukraine by constantly supplying weaponry to the Ukranians, but not in large enough quantities) ... just enough to "keep them in the fight" - like what purpose logically does this serve? 

Only the loons know. 

Fact is, its far better to sit down and talk NOW before shit gets even worse, which it will. 

The loons claiming "rainbow pride" and all this other nonsense are fully happy to tutor kids on "how it's ok to come out at the age of 4!" or "it's OK to want to change your gender" - and other crap NOT meant for kids. 

Logic, anyone? When the right calls 'em out, it's supposedly hate speech. 

From the article - 

Ads that echo racially charged language

In cities such as Buffalo, Charlottesville and Pittsburgh where racial and ethnic tensions have led to violence, white nationalists have echoed the same language of the far right in white supremacist marches and mass shootings.

The narratives they are repeating aren't coming from "kooks in the basement writing online," Mueller said. "These are from people in positions of real power."

Now, I'm certainly not someone that condone racism - far , far from it. 

But it's much less of a problem than the left makes it out to be - oddly enough, even notice how the left NEVER call out BLM etc for all the looting and illegal acts they committed (dont get me wrong, core concept is to be admired in terms of saying no to racism, but is this how we express ourselves - I think NOT?)... 

When you talk about (as I do) Joe Biden being happy to literally lead the country to ruin in terms of what he is doing at the border - and when republicans say it - it's "dangerous and fuels violence". 

Hmm ... all those illegals and illegal votes that Biden swept into power on isn't harmful? 

And the list goes on and on and on ... 

Kooks? 

Liberals = kooks, and a lot more, of course, a lot of nutters reading this would probably classify me as a kook writing online too, and "not in a position of real power" - not YET at any rate. 

Never say never, my friend. 

Its a truism far too many people have gleefully ignored - to their own detriment, of course. 

The Universe has a funny way of bringing TRUE the very fact the majority of people tell you "will never happen" or can never happen or what not (in this day and age - and look around you, see what is happening NOW, and you'll see PROOF right there in front of YOU). 

Anyway. 

This kook doesnt live in a basement, he leaves those spaces for a certain Schofield and trolly sorts of his ilk. 

But he does infest a CAVE, hehe - as you can see from the latest dark video I put out! 

He does emerge from it, he has the best workouts of his life in there, he puts out products there, he talks to Sophia there, he drinks beer there - and well, he's happy to be called whatever names the left thows at him. 

Illogical will never be one of 'em! Hehe. 

And the final piece of news that stuns most liberals ... "he isn't white! how can that be!" 

Like dude, being logical extends across races. 

Last I checked Herschel Walker wasn't either, yet he's a doer, and supports what is RIGHT and logical. 

Literally, thats why the left has their panties in a wad, but I sort of suspect people are (finally, it's long overdue) starting to see past their BS - including their media nonsense which some idiotic Nazi feminist probably writes. 

Anyway, had to get that off my kooky, pyschopathic chest... and I have. 

Results, friend, are something you cannot ever argue with , and fitness wise - THIS is the system that will give you EVER lasting results beyond anything you could ever dream of in your possibly "kooky" mind , hehe - - 

The 0 Excuses Fitness System. 

Eloquent or brash, or even "in the middle" - it just plain ole (Jane and Joe) flat out WORKS. (without any Jane Fonda crap either). Hehe. 

Get after it NOW. 

Best,

30 second squats

The sky, my friend - truly is the limit as I wrote about earlier, and there is always something you CAN do - period (other than bitch, moan, whine groan, look at the sh-news - and so forth). 

And in terms of squats, the KING of all exercises (dont get me wrong - the pushup is still the BIG DOG) - here is a variation that is #23 in the yet to be released book Squat 101. 

This is another one of those "past customer ONLY" emails which will be sent to the general list as well, but later. For now, it's only YOU guys that get to see it! (i.e. past customers). 

And it's simple, the how to on this one - yet the way it affects your body is nigh profound to say the least. 

To do these, simply take 30 seconds on the way down on a squat, and 30 seconds on the way up - if you can do either. 

For most people, FIVE seconds down and FIVE seconds up is all they should attempt. 

And do such squats in reps, and in conjunction with your REGULAR routine, my friend. 

If you're done with 100 squats, do 10 this way, and write back and tell me if your legs dont quiver like an aspen Maple leaf in Toronto in the BREEZE ... as "solid" Marc the African silverback Gorilla found out when doing dips, or getting in the position - for the first time. Hehe. Thats another book on the way on dips - nowehere near done though. 

You can always move ahead, and there is ALWAYS something to do. INcluding fitness, yes, in "this time" when people are buckling down, looking to do nothing but survive, yours truly marches on with his "expensive" books - and will continue to, much to the chargin of many, price wankers being numero uno on that list, but this isn't about them - ugh, but thats a pet peeve of mine, I even expressed myself in a video on that one! 

Anyway - where was I. 

Ah yes, squats ... 

Write back - let me know how these squats affect you! 

And remember while the 0 Excuses Fitness system covers squats in depth "you aint seen nothing as yet" - like with the first book on isometrics, hugely popular - now you have the SECOND book (well, you had it a while ago!) - Advanced, Profound Isometric and Flexibility Training - and Volume Three is very much, well and truly in the works. 

Did ya'll see the email on when a certain Sophia called me a pyschopath for ... ah, you will see it soon enough! 

And, an email where a certain ... somebody asked if I ever sold any books. LOL. 

All to come - for now - write back - let me know!

Best

Never say die, my friend.

Or, the word "never". I cannot point out the number of times I've said "never" - in fact, even in terms of China - and there bang I am a few months down the line - back in good ole Chna. The Middle King(k) dom, as they say, NO pun intended!

But this isn't about kink, it's about keeping the spirit ALIVE, not just alive, but kicking. 

What am I referring to, you might ask. 

Well, as the majority of the world drifts more towards pessimism and doom and gloom than ever before, NOW is as good a time as any for me to say this - especially given the backdrop of looming war everywhere (please dont say I did not warn you WELL in advance, hehe) - as I get done with 100 squats, 10  pull-ups, and a few lumberjack swings, and thick bar work - as I'm fixing to get BACK to it soon - "never say die". 

It's true, my friend. 

In the vast majority of cases, even those you might consider seemingly hopeless, there is ALWAYS, I repeat, ALWAYS something you can do - though often times, that something might not be easy at all to spot. 

Napoleon Hill's story in Outwitting the Devil of following his gut, spending money he didnt have on a fancy hotel - having faith he'd FIND the right financier - illustrates this perfectly when he says he "gave up all hope" and paused to rest (not in those words, but that is the gist) after being EXHAUSTED after doing but think, and search for the better half of a day and a half for the right person, not to be able to find it. 

... then in a flash, VOILA!

Against all odds, the name came to him - much like the plan to go Philly did. 

You'll have to read the book for more - again, I get nothing from that. YOU DO! 

It's one of Hills lesser known books, so controversial in his time they didnt even publish it till years after the great man passed on. 

He still lives - through his books, the most well known of which is Think and Grow Rich, but thats hardly the one I admire the most, though its a gem and masterpiece in itself. 

Anyway. 

Many times, business wise I've logically "all but given up". 

Situations have seemed UTTERLY hopeless sometimes, literally so. 

Yet, I found it in in me to keep the faith and keep going "one more round" as Rocky says!

One more round is indeed what makes ALL The difference!

And the way Ive done it is by knowing there is ALWAYS something I can do - and you can do. 

Now, some idiots will no doubt (and this has happened!) get back with history about the Holocaust and other horrors from the past and say "what in those situations"? 

Well, sorry to break the news to you - but SOME people survived even back then in the direst of circumstances. 

Human spirit can only be broken if you LET it be broken. 

Most would prefer to bitch, moan and give up at the slightest hint of misfortune, which is fine, hence ... well, do I need to say more? 

But those that survived even in those horrible circumstances - I'll bet they did what they had to do at any cost. 

I'll bet they never gave up - even when they didnt know it - in their MINDS. 

Far too FEW people are willing to do what it really takes, to keep going aganist all odds. 

I'm proud to note I'm one of the very few in that regard. 

And YES, despite what people say about "not everyone has that capacity!" - well, I'm sorry to tell you, but thats a false statement if there ever was one - we aint talking beer drinking capacity here for one, hehe, which admittedly not many can match my prowress at. 

We're talking gumption, a quality ANYONE can build and develop if they choose to. 

Look at the strongman with no legs and an upper body most people can only dream of - I'm sure you know the dude? Hes been going viral all over Twitter and such ... even wechat in China! 

Fitness wise, same thing. 

There is always something you can do, if you WANT To do it, and if you DO - the second being KEY, the first COMES. 

If you dont DO - nothing will happen despite your best intentions my friend - if you combine pure, solid, utter DESIRE with DOING - that is when and how mountains literally MOVE for you, both life wise and fitness wise and in every regard. 

Do what you will with that message - but it's all very true. 

And - rememeber - my workouts, the WIDE panpoloy of workouts I give you in the 0 Excuses Fitness System make sure even the most ardent of doers and the laziest of lazy phockers - have something to do - anyday, everyday, anytime, any place. 

Get on this system NOW - truly the best and most RESULTS producing. 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - IF inspiration of this sort is your thang, all my books are for you but specifically Zero to Hero! - and Gumption Galore!. Trust me on this one, friend. 

When the going gets tough, the TOUGH truly get going. 

DO you have it in you? 

Only you can answer that question - if so - welcome ABOARD!

So, Sophia just called me a pyschopath!

Yes, her, the lovely Gorilla Girl. 

Why? 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Women, gotta love 'em. 

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

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

Well. 

I kinda agree with him there. Hehe. 

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

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

But, bottom line - few questions . . . 

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

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

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

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

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

Yet, the coalition destroyed the country. 

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

Can YOU, the reader argue with these facts? 

Vietnam - I wont even go there. 

My point isnt "it's right or wrong". 

My point is it happens. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now that the bear has awakened, well ... 

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

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

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

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

Huh? 

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

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

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

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

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

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

THAT is what she called me a pyscho for. 

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

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

Maybe she did. 

But the REAL reason? 

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

And THAT, my friends is the nub. 

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

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

Well depends upon your definition of the latter. 

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

Not like Sophia really minds anyway... ;)  

Apparently she doesnt like Gong Li. 

Which lovely women ever liked the other. 

"she's so arrogant!" 

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

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

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

"She has more positive than negative!" 

We all do, Sophia. 

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

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

Get used to it. 

I've been called much worse. 

But I get results, friend. 

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

Enough - back soon!

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - WHEW!

Yet another one of those feel good posts on Twitter saw yours truly ... 

"If you haven't written out what your ideal day looks like, how do you know when you've got there"? 

Um... 

Now, she was tryin to be helpful. I'm not going to call her out on this! 

But - point is this - there is no ONE way of doing this, and all the self help in the world that tells you to WRITE things down (my wife for one follows this religiously - and results??) - that tells you to do X , Y and Z before bed - all of it - is advice that a) doesnt work for everyone, and b) more importantly, is NOT tailored for every situation. 

Know what works? 

YOU - and YOUR way, unique to only YOU work! 

I've been doing all this subconsciously since I was young - either out of necessity earlier, or consciously later. I learnt at age 5 probably what most are learning at 40 i.e. the MIND if used right (not how most gurus tell you to use it ) is the most powerful weapon ever. And tool as well.

Writing it out is ONE way, yes. 

But do you HAVE to write things out ? 

Sure, if you're working for Freddie, yes, and he was right there. Hehe. 

Documentation is something Amazon at great at, yet, even AWS fails miserably (and I've had first hand experience) at actually explaining something even slightly out of the box and not covered in docs (perhaps they are too big to really care, but I suspect they will start to care soon) ... 

Yes, write it out - by hand or whatever. 

But for me, I can tell you this - ALL Of my real lasting accomplishments were sparked on the spur of the moment, and NONE were a written goal. 

I rarely, if ever write my goals down - DREAMS are a different matter altogether. 

I believe if you truly want it, you'll get it on auto pilot ultimately. 

Might sound strange, but it's true, as for my ideal day? 

Wake up, check emails, write emails, work for a couple of hours, rake in the sales - and then ... well, relax, without having to answer to nobody, FREEDOM in all regards. 

And thats it. Hehe. Nothing too fancy, but it's what most people in the world, rich or not - do not really have - FREEDOM! 

The Chinese girls I know keep pointing this out wistfully - of course, for them, freedom means "no money" - I wish I could explain that to a certain Gorilla Girl Sophia for one who keeps pestering me about "give me some info on freelancing". 

To her, I'm a "freelancer". 

Always will be. 

Problem is, her mindset. 

She doesnt see it as WORKING for yourself, or making a pretty good living while doing what you love, on your own terms, and when you explain that to her, of course - she scowls. Looking for the easy way out is she, the vast majority of folks out there. I dont waste my time on them. 

No point. 

I mean, beat your head against a wall all you like, aint gonna change nothing will it. 

Anyway.......

Fitness wise, same thing - my books give you VERY EXHAUSTIVE workouts - all written down for those who need it that way. 

I'll bet you my bottom dollar though - YOUR most effective and best workouts probably came on the fly - either before or after reading those. 

Am I right? 

Yeah. 

Thought so! 

Point of all this, again, do what works for YOU. 

And learn from the best (fitness wise) here

Back soon!

Best

Old man failure and more...

An old, wise, and TRUE Napoleon Hill saying goes as such - 

Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping one up when success is almost within reach.

It's so true!

In fact, the way I say "old man failure" in this post is also his writing speaking to you NOW. 

There are so many similariities between his life and mine - right down to the sexual transmutation, to the making of a business from scratch - to the "doing what I was truly meant to in one way or the other whether I consciously wanted to or not" to unsupportive family - to many, many other things including travel - and his physcial workouts i.e. walking 10 miles daily, usually UPHILL if he could, that I wonder if I'm Hill reincarnated. 

Given what people say about me and my ethnicity, despite "facts" seeming otherwise - I might well be!

But anyway - the above quote. 

So true. 

Ive seen so many times when people think they've got it made in biz - slack off - it all comes tumbling down to WORSE than what it was when they started. 

Lesson learnt? 

Sometimes, it's something people can't avoid. 

Sometimes, it's other things. 

I've had a combo of all the above, yes, including the first - happen to me not once - but multiple times. 

Remember, it's a privelege to be at the top. 

It can all be taken away, and some day, the wheel WILL Turn - in the meantime, what you can do? 

Is to keep working at it. 

Is to keep being prepared. 

Sometimes, failures are inevitable - indeed, if you're a real doer that succeeds on his own, you wont make it without 99 failures and that ONE big hit - period. 

Life, business, relationships, customers, all holds true. 

That ONE , that 10% as Sylvester Stallone likes to say about his life "90% being a mistake" - makes all the damn difference. 

And it does!

Not many get it - that is why not many truly succeed at the highest levels. 

Anyway - this isn't a life coaching class... 

But it applies to your fitness too. 

I cannot tell you the number of times I thought "I didnt need to do anything more" - or slack off - and all came tumbling down there too. 

You have to keep working at it - period. 

If someone like Bruce Lee could walk around all day with a dumbbell despite his elite status - what makes you think YOU can't - or shouldn't - do your own equivalent? 

Keep trying to break another barrier. 

Keep aiming higher. 

Keep pulling that chin up higher over the pull-up bar. 

Keep getting DEEPER stretches in on pushups, more squats ................. and the list goes on!

As Claude Bristol rightly said in the Magic of Believing

"Success is a fickle bird, the minute you rest on your laurels is the minute it takes wings and flies away". 

Amen, I should say. 

Lesson learnt for all readers, I hope. 

End of "sermon". 

Back soon (but that sermon BE true). 

BEst,

I have asked it in various shapes, forrms and guises before. Maybe I should ask my wife this one. Hehe. It would answer all her Nazi feminist "queries" instantly!

Then again, maybe not. Hehe. 

But her aside, here it is. 

And its a sage one in today' economic climate... 

If YOU were given the chance right NOW - I mean, NOW - to get a steady, easy desk job (sort of like what I had in China in 2002, great job straight out of college, expat salary and so forth) - along with, plenty of girls - beer, what have you - whatever YOU choose to do with that cash, all you had to do was show up to the cushy job... 

... 

OR... 

Grit it out NOW - lets say starting NOW - for the next 10 years building your OWN biz with no help whatsoever. 

Remember, I ain't talkin about me or my story here. 

Most people would, lets be honest - choose the former option, and lets be frank - there isn't necessarily anything wrong with choosing a life of medicrity and stability, sometimes, it's compensated very well!

The DOERS though - real doers - will know what is missing though. 

YOU. 

And your deepest desires, which go unanswered this way. 

Fitness wise, same thing, friend. 

Many of the gains you see today for me - business wise and fitness wise both - well, as Jeff Bezos says - 

"It was baked X number of years ago". 

So it is with fitness. 

I had never once imagined - even near to when I started this business in earnest - that my gains would come, and so ... VOLUMINOUSLY! 

None of these books, none of them would have ever happened if I didnt set my stall out for the long run either consciously or not. 

Fitness wise or not. 

And the same thing applies today, ALL my business methods even today are possibly even more long term than before, much to the chagrin of certain ... ah, I wont go there. 

Hehe. 

The end result is ALWAYS worth it. 

IF you put in the hard yards, and never quit. 

And If YOU Want the sort of fitness gains I have, gains that never go away beyond a certain point even (assuming you still do the thing) - well, the 0 Excuses Fitness System is what you need to get - NOW. 

Do so NOW. 

Not so much to prove to me you're a doer, but YOURSELF, which is what really counts. 

Best,

What I cant understand though, is THIS...

Unwanted child, therefore "problem child", trouble child (although in reality, I was none of the above - the problem was something else entirely) ... I can sort of "understand" all this. 

I can sort of understand friction, anger, why's, wherefores, and so forth. 

What I cannot understand is this - how can someone not just "dislike" their children, but HATE them to the point that if they were put in front of a firing squad tomorrow and brutally killed - they would not just be happy over it, but applaud. 

All my life I've seen family support family - in cases even so extreme such as when one of the progeny committed murder - rape - or something completely unpardonable (at least in my opinion) - yet, end of the day "theyre family" - not to mention those that were thought of as losers - US President George Bush is one prime example i.e. "mano o mano" at the age of 40 and everything he did before. Hehe. 

(I dont dislike or hate Bush, I'm simply being factual in terms of his history). 

Although I have always said the war in Iraq should have NEVER happened, I've always rather liked Ole George and his quirks. HEhe. 

Anyway .......... 

It's been my family that has been that way - amazingly enough, when I did nothing of the sort above, nothing to warrant that sort of thinking. 

Ole Steve Austin comes to mind here, his Dad who he says "abandoned" them - when he finally met him as a successful wrestler years later, "I have no feelings for him, but no animosity either". 

That I can understand, and relate to. 

Although I might get temporarily angry, in the long term? 

To me they simply dont matter either way. 

But the hate coming from parents - THAT I don't get. 

To me, the buck in these cases ALWAYS stops with the parents. 

What do I mean? 

Well, my little girl who I love more than anythign else in this world - if she were grow up and NOT do what I want, or turn into a liberal, or what not - would I care? Give a shit? 

Hell yes I would, 

Would I try and stop her/? 

Hell no I wouldn't. 

Whatever it was, I've always told her, and always WILL - that end of the day, you'll always be Daddy's little girl. 

How someone can HATE a human being they took care of as a baby is beyond me. 

Of course, that never happened in my case - I'm not sure until this date if I was adopted "quietly" or not. It wouldn't surprise me one damn bit if I was!

Anyway ........ 

I can sort of understand if my wife feels that way towards me (she does) .

It's not "right" given all I've done for her and what I denied myself to do. 

But its understandable to a degree, a relationship gone wrong big time, two adults, hey - I get it. 

What is unfortunate is how my short sighted wife aligned her lot with my mother years ago "against yours truly" - and turned into a proxy of sorts for both parties - willingly "for the almighty Dollar". 

We all know what happens to proxies ultimately... 

I'm sure at the back of her mind, she does as well. 

Anyway ........ 

Why do I say all this. 

I dont know, random thoughts before I workout. 

And I can't see how any real parents can hate their children - period. 

If they do, the parents aren't real parents and even mine ONCE admitted "we made a lot of mistakes". 

Anyway - lots of people HATE fitness, or so they say, but do they really? 

They hate the effort, but not the results. 

Hehe. 

And one dont sprout without the other, the latter certainly wont bloom without the former. 

Start planting them seeds NOW, my friend (pun not intended). 

Back soon. 

BEst

PS - Unfortunately or not, there are plenty of "silent" cases out there just like me - families just like mine...

PS #2 - and in MOST, if not all (I'd say all) of these cases, the buck almost always ultimately stops with the PARENTS, period.
