That might not sound nice, eh.
But if you truly want to succeed at that one thing ... if you truly have a REAL GOAL - or ever had - and it never took off, or you failed, if you truly WANT to do something so bad you can feel it...
If you could - let me ask you this.
Did you leave yourself with any choice BUT NOT TO DO IT - want it SO BAD - that you got it eventually?
If you failed, chances are excellent that along with not dreaming right and NOT being persistent enough - you "had another choice" that seemed easier at the time.
This, my friend, is a lesson often presented to me in many ways - that I've learned, and as I wrote to you earlier about, will never make the mistake of making again.
I was giving so many chances, but lo, I didnt recognize the message in them!
I made all my luck, yes.
But, WHY did I do that?
I never recognized it until around August or so of last year when things became "final" - true, I experienced some temporary difficulty even then in terms of starting out towards the goal I speak so much of here.
Hiccups, and so forth.
All esaed and smoothed out eventually.
But also doing what one was meant to.
And, although I have other choice, to achieve this goal - until I do - I'm not leaving myself with many choices at all, and those that are, I'm not working upon (and there are many, hehe).
To achieve a goal, a truly worthy one, it has to be an all encompassing desire, friend.
You have to take it to bed with you - and you have to wake up with it.
Many years ago, the last thought I had before bed?
"The hill tomorrow morning!"
And when I woke up, first thing?
A quick toilet, and then laced up my shoes - 530 AM - regardless of weather - and I was gone!
This kept happening for a while.
After that, I changed my workout timings, reduced the frequency, did other things et.
But it would never have happened had I not had that burning desire - which was planted into me by a girl although she has no idea how she did it!
RAGE, REVENGE ... ?
How dare she?
I'll show her!
Or, all of the above in a "very mild" manner ie. not harmful to the other person if thats possible!
I think most of all, it's the same thing that happens to me and every true doer when someone laughs at you, rejects your goals as dreams as being "possible for others" (of course, he has so much dedication, but you have no drive or desire - usually said by wack jobs of the highest order living on Venus or something) . but never for you.
A FIRE BREWS!
Then it builds.
Then you do it!
It may take years, but you fuckign DO IT!
And - you leave yourself with NO CHOICES along the way, or you likely won't do it (or you don't and won't do it at the level you wanted to).
Remember the story of the General Napoleon Hil lmentioned in Think and Grow Rich, where he literally ordered his soldiers, VASTLY OUTNUMBERED - to burn their ships as soon as they reached shore?
WIN OR PERISH!
They had NO choice but to win - and win they did!
There are countless other such stories, friend, that you might or might not hear of.
But, YOUR story too is similar!
And really, ... well, let me quote from the book - this part is key too.
A BURNING DESIRE TO BE, AND DO is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. Dreams are NOT born of indifference, laziness or lack of ambition.
What are your DREAMS, my friend?
Trust me, we all have 'em - at ANY AGE.
You might believe they will never happen. If you do, you're doomed from the get go let me tell you this.
But if you believe, read the quoted part above - again and again.
Over and over again, and read this email too - not just once, but MANY Times.
Fitness wise, I've given you the same example above - remember, friend.
Life waits for nobody.
And I've been promoting Fast and Furious Fitness - the Collector's Edition since this morning for good reason.
If you read this email, be indifferent, continue the "stupor" and say "whatever", well, then guess what. you won't be getting it. And neither you will be getting something very special, something you'll cherish all your life, something that will give you dividends galore, truly, the GIFT OF A LIFETIME THAT NEVER STOPS GIVING!
Believe me, I wouldn't say it in those words if I did not mean it.
And the doers, those that want, remember, it's not just copies of this fantastic book but time that is OF THE ESSENCE AND LIMITED.
To claim your gift, click here NOW, friend.
And I'll see you!
I'll be waiting with the PEN too, hehe.
On top of all I've said, all thats going, the panic and what not, here's something that nigh no-one seems to have noticed.
There is one nation, New Zealand, which never really got the plague to begin with - at least nowhere like anywhere else.
That continues till this day, as this thing ravages the world.
Coincidentally, or perhaps not (I dont believe in the former) it's also the one place in the world where billionaires (real ones, not Bozo schofield 'I'm a billionaire ass licker, Mommy!") are stacking up against like each other like nine pins, buying up land, property - even bunkers lik ethere is no tomorrow.
It's also the one place in the world actively CALLING such people - one such fine dude apparently got his NZ citizenship sitting in California of all things without even visiting the country because NZ deemed him to be of great use or something.
I could tell you a story or two about this. Hehe.
But, for now, lets focus on what I just said.
NZ, also is one of the few places in the world which is neither very likely to come under nuclear attack, and if the world does, it's one of the safest places to be due to its remote nature.
That has also been touted as one of the reasons for it's success against the China virus, friend.
What about Japan? Fiji? Marshall Islands? (I dont know about the latter two, but Japan is being hit HARD, hard, hard by it!).
The UK is an island too - not exactly in the center of the world, and it was hit HARD too.
You could argue not that many people travel to NZ.
Id argue otherwise tourism wise....
My friend, the engineered nature of this silly panicdemic was obvious from the get-go.
And it becomes more and more obvious every day.
The Liberals and Bozos are trying every which way to silence us from saying it, of course...
Right down to rebooting phones remotely.
Which I dont know, but I think Google's up to something there like Microsoft (I've been talking about that).
Make them buy a new laptop first, but ONLY the models we want. Hehe.
Then it's phones, since the renegade writer never bought a laptop, since he wont settle for less.
Think it's all horse shit ?
Think again, friend.
All very, very true ...
And what you can do, friend is to STOP the panic by taking a stand against it. Plain and simple.
And, by taking charge of your OWN LIFE fitness wise FIRST.
And that, my friend, is the only thing that makes total sense of this totally sensical rant...
Sage, so damned SAGE!
And so happy I am right now!
TRuly a chip off the old block.
JOHN WALKER, you DA MAN!
And here's the thing , with the Universe listening, and me being in full flow, what I BE talking about now - well, it was a conversation I just got done with my little girl (well, first the wife, but it "transferred to her" pretty quick as the wife gave me the expected "who are you!" response) ...
I told them about the article I sent you in the last email - tailored, targeted and designed to scare YOU, friend, with examples that seem so real life that they likely are, except they never gave you the full picture!
My wife was like "so what benefit can the UK get from you".
.... (in other words, who does he think he is. This arrogant snot!)
But my little girl didnt say a word.
And later on, we had the conversation about ... well, she told me some news she had heard on the Tee Vee Shee Vee.
I keep telling her to regard most news as a joke..
She's caught on oh so well!
Dad, they showed that 30 people attacked a Hindu temple.
Now, she was watching some India based news.
Does that news ever tell you for instance, when someone attacks a Christian or Muslim church?
Dont get me wrong, it's wrong nonetheless.
But they keep tom tomming their own view does the media, they never ever give you the entire PICTURE!
My daughter then so sagely told me about .. well, before that, it was somethig she didnt understand.
Something about my wife and her job, some "recruitment drive" or some nonsenese to which "50 or 100 people come! Yippee!!"
The sheeple, in other words.
I wasn't shy of saying it.
And on that note, one person (before I wrote this) asked me what a Tom Tom was.
I tried explaining, hehe.
I said the Brits could probably explain it the best, but that it was an idiot who followed dictum blindly without question, and while saying it, I did the "Tom Tom" with fists up in the air too!
Later, daughter asked me the same thing (she didnt understand what "drive" meant - and the school obviously don't teach her) - and I told her.
Honey, the typical Tom Tom's and their numbers have inreased exponentially.
Dad, what are Tom tom's?
And then she astounded me - though really I wasn't surprised.
She's got a great example to follow, and its the Universe speaking to YOU through me and her!
(Interesting how the Tom Tom's all get pissed when they hear me tell her to follow my example, and when I say she's got a great Dad to emulate. &, do all they can to STOP her from doing so.
They dont get it, the Tom Tom's, do they. Hehe. Its all mental. Thought transmutes -if you KNOW about the ether we ALL LIVE IN!
The DOERS never do - they agree!).
(Of course, when its something negative, they all jump on the mournful bandwagon of "Her Dad oh, woe be ME!!!!!!!!!!!")
Few better people to emulate than Rahul Mookerjee, my friend, and that aint even Tom Tomming.
It's a FACT.
In life, fitness, whatever.
MOst of all saying it like it is.
"Dad, the kids are being puleld into the teacher's dictatorship, the teachers into the administrator's, and the government of course tells the admins what to do" ...
(You might think it's me saying that, no?)
Yet, it was an 8 year old when I was ranting about the brainwashing going on in Asian schools (China being one prime example, but others including INdia have jumped on that bandwagon as of late).
And she finished off with this.
"Who is rEALLY pulling the strings, Daddy?"
Wonder if WeChat is listening, hehe, because after that LONG conversation I got two message.
one, good news.
"Big Boss is listening!"
I shit you NOT. I can show you if you dont believe me!
Anyhow, two things -
One, her question is an interesting one. Though people blame the politicans I'd blame the sheeple and the people REALLY behind the scenes.
Google and other search engines that actively collude with those tracking YOU right now.
The all invasive Microsoft.
Those thinking devices.
And much, much more.
The Univese, my friend, actively tests us - and gives us choices.
Pass 'em all, you SHALL suceed - either life or fitness.
I've just given you many examples, if you've got a pulse, and you know the S of Spiritual, you'll KNOW WHAT I MEAN!
I love you, Shristi. YOU ARE TRULY THE BEST THING EVER IN MY LIFE!!
Rahul Mookerjee aka a REALLY BLESSED DAD!
My word, my word!
The Universe BE noticing me.
For a change I'll be the opposite of verbose, and send you here (yes, the sh-news is good for SOMETHING).
A 42-year-old fitness fanatic was 'beating himself up' over his decision not to get vaccinated during his final days, his family said.
Let's quote some of the greatest and best parts.
Right down to the name of the author of the piece, Sophia. (Gorilla Girl? Hehe).
A 42-year-old British man who loved exercise and eating healthy died of COVID-19 last week.
John Eyers didn't get vaccinated because he "felt that he would be ok," his family said.
The father-of-one told doctors in his final days that he regretted his decision not to get a vaccine.
Jesus God, now I'm scared.
A 42-year-old British man who loved exercise and eating healthy died of COVID-19 last week.
John Eyers didn't get vaccinated because he "felt that he would be ok," his family said.
The father-of-one told doctors in his final days that he regretted his decision not to get a vaccine.
An unvaccinated 42-year-old fitness fanatic who regularly climbed mountains and competed in the ironman has died of COVID-19, his family said.
John Eyers, a construction expert and bodybuilding competitor from the seaside town of Southport, England, died last week, one month after catching the virus.
The father-of-one was a "healthy" and "very active" person who was climbing mountains and camping in the wilderness just four weeks before he got sick, his twin sister, Jenny McCan
I dont know, my friend, but I smell a rat.
Notice how theyre targeting US -YOU ?
YOU AND I!
They KNOW WE are one of the last remaining that dont panic, so they're trying to make us.
DONT BUY INTO THIS SHYT, friends!
True, I have nothing but "sadness" for John. NO-ONE should die from this pestilence!
But panic ain't the way!
Do we know if he had any preexisting medical conditions?
DOES anyone notice that those with the vaccine are getting it left right and CENTER?
DOES anyone know if he was even in contact with anyone that had it - was THAT person vaccinated?
Cherry picking is fine.
First thing you know, not eveyrone is a rock climber or mountain climber, Id bet he was the solitary type like me when it comes to fitness.
Anyway, my condolences...
PRECAUATIOSN NOT PANIC!
PS - I've said it once, I'll say it again.
Once a vaccine fucking works, SHOW Me.
But dont show me something that doesn't work and tell me to shove swabs up my ass.
It ain't happening.
until then, THIS RIGHT HERE is the best vaccine ever.
And, likely long after too.
At the outset, if a certain Charles Mitchell is reading this, or if a certain Rahul Mookerjee might be eagerly gobbling it up ... hehe.
It ain't aimed - or written to Tom Tom either one.
Its a general statement (though I do love throwing folks curveballs as well, and seeing how many get back and with what).
Truly Charles you sometimes feel like the Universe talking to me!
I say that not facetiously either.
But anyway, cops - and business owners.
The Tom Tommers and Liberals give them a a bad rap.
Too violent, they whine.
They dont care about our rights, they whine.
And of course, the richer you get, the more you succeed the more you get trolled.
"How dare he have so much money!" they think "while we starve "(because they're lazy asses to be honest).
OR just plain dumb and aint bothered to improve.
Let me be honest, EVERYONE is born with the kind of mental capacity needed to make you a success - unless you have some serious mental flaws, and even if you do.
Hell, look at Churchill, Trump, Hitler, all these folks.
Obviously I ain't comparing the first two to the last.
Look at the Bozo, the most successful "in basement troll sticky fingered up where God knows)" if you want an example "closer to home" (poor Brum).
He's even such a successful scammer (the Bozo) that the scammed although they hate him, still feel sorry for him, and of course, he uses that to wheedle more dough of them.
He does play the "poor old boy" routine very well, and the Bozos globally fall for it.
He truly is the "Head Bozo", in more ways than one if you get my drift.
But anyway ...
Cops deal with people daily, friend.
They know what people think - and what people DO, not just say they do!
They see the nitty gritties daily.
They're out there - while we're sitting here behind our computers or what not.... Or Tee Vee, or, I Dont know, putting up with wives or what not.
But theyre out there.
They deal with all sorts of people.
An experienced cop can, just like I can (no I've never been a cop!) "judge" a person very accurately by gut alone.
Trust me on this one.
Thats why I keep saying if people would just let cops do their thing - they'd not only be a lot safer, but the cops would be a lot more appreciative!
but of course, liberals.
True, there's some bad apples - but I'm talking in general.
And same thing for business people - exactly the same.
I dont care if you're a one man show making moolah from a darkened bedroom, friend.
If it's a real business, you're dealing with the real world.
With people of varying natures and businesses DAILY.
Yo uhave your finger RIGHT ON THE PULSE of people (if you're making money - which you should be - if you're not, you're getting it wrong somewhere).
Same thing for martial artists, wrestler's and so called "jocks".
Just the physical, the Tom Tom's whine.
Lets see YOU, my friend (I'm talking to the Tom Tom here) learn even the basics of boxing without collapsing.
Hell, just the footwork, no heavy bag, no pushups ...
More than the physical, lets see you get the MENTAL down pat first.
The more brutal the sport, the more cerebral it often is.
Boxing and Wrestling are too "2" hehe prime examples of this!
And perhaps thats why all my courses are modeled on what people do to get themselves "combat ready" - either in sports - or real life.
True, sport specific training and all that.
But you dont got to be a boxer, for instance, to reap manifold benefits from Jump Rope Mania - both MENTAL and physical.
Neither do you got to be a wrassler to benefit immensely from the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
And if there's one I could choose?
But Id go with wrestling, if just because it builds a solid base for everything else.
Boxing does too, but not like wrestling....
You "in the know" know this.
But anyway, enough said...
Had to get that off my chest - now I have.
Out for now!
In Isometric and Flexibilty Training, which is one of my greatest and nigh on NOW - most applicable ever, more than ever before, along with a few others, a Bozo wrote back.
He bitched about price.
But that wasn't his main grouse.
IT was "simple stretches".
And it was, most importantly what he felt and wrote honestly towards the end - a review which was never moderated, and I never WILL moderate it, because some monouments to stupidity MUST STAND.
"The photos are terrible!" he went, as if his makeup or what not was ruined...
But along with the down to earth photos, the mess in the background on some of it might have "brought out the Italian in him".
Red blooded, hot tempered, "oh so perfect".
Now, I've addressed the Tom Tomming about "just simple stretches" in the link above. BAsically, The Gama pushed against tree to build immense strength amongst the other stuff he did.
Tom Toms would say that yes.
But does it work?
I'll let you be the judge - and I dont even start with something like that.
MOST fitness "gurus",even a certain Matt Furey in his course on isometrics have NEVER - well, at the time, never put anything like I did.
Maybe he has now, I dont know. Probably not.
But point is this, friend.
Simple just works. Plain and effing simple.
And I keep it BRUTAL and simple. To a T.
You see it like it IS - or was when I took the photos.
I didnt bother cleaning clutter in the background, what I bothered about was the WORKOUTS AND EXERCISES < showing you how to do 'em!
Both equaly important, #2 even more so.
Or, I'd just write about it.
Now, heres the thing.
If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.
How many times have you heard this - and experiened it?
Delegation is great, if and until it works.
Seperation of duties, responsibilities etc is great - until it works.
Y'all past the first marriage as yet?
Then you KNOW what I mean, hehe.
I still remember Major Michael telling me, "my first wife was a ****! She never even did windows!"
I've heard that from guys galore. Especially doers and those that succeed.
Which is fine, mistakes happen, we all live and learn, so it should be, most live by the rulebook, we don't so we live and learn, experience...
I'll give you an example.
When I'm with my wife, launrdy is often an issue as are other things . (Glyn Schofield's ears just perked up. Hehe).
She lets it pile up for days, then complains about it, then does some, then complains more, it piles up agaim and so forth.
For someone who does it on clockwork, it drives me insane, especially since it ain't my job to begin with.
But you can lead a horse to water.
You can't make it drink.
For years, I tried.
Then I left!
But in the "in between phases" of leaving, I just did my own damn laundry.
I did it, dried it folded it, and put it back, she left hers all over the place.
Used to drive me insane, I rememeber, but once I accepted the fact for what it is i.e people don't change unless they want to, it stopped any and all arguments on that front.
David Goggins wrote about this in one his books.
(I just read about that two days ago, so now, the Tom Tom's saying "hes my GORRRRRRUUUUU" - no he ain't either. But he's a great ACHIEVER - and CHAMP!)
And a great example of just do it, hence he's on the page for "Pull-ups from STUD TO SUPER STUD WITHIN WEEKS!"
"When youve flown for days on end, or are exhausted to the bone, then you come home to a filthy house - but you dont blame your spouse or friends or roommates or whatever, you get it done - THERE AND THEN! Your sense of duty won't let you do otherwise".
SO BLOODY TRUE! (those are my words, but that was his gist too)
Naturally, I never took this to extremes.
ANd no, before you ask, it aint one ot the tricks mentioned in the book on combating Nazi feminism - and profiting from it (which you guys do need to get now, as you will not only love it, but enjoy it).
"Just common sense", you might think.
OK, if thats what you think...
But is that common sense getting you results NOW?
If not, book might be worth a look see, even a READ ...
On that note, I gotta say.
Serial refunders, that ain't for you.
If you're going to buy and then instantly within an hour click "refund" with some inane reason given to Amazon, or wherever you get it from (NOT here, as there are NO REFUNDS of ANY NATURE for ANYTHING - I've made that clear multiple times, still people ask) ... then please don't get it, period.
Go to someone who allows refunds. You and I will both have an easier time down the road!
But doers, you'll want to check it out now.
Back to it - my wife likely has her own reasons for living the way she does.
Hey, gotta walk a mile in a man's shoes first... or a woman's (not high heels, hehe). (I'll leave the jaywalking in tights to the Bozo).
But whatever, we all have our own reasons, whether valid or not.
And deep down inside, we all know what is right and wrong.
But anyway, want something done, get it done yourself.
Hence I make my own sites.
Hence I do my own emails. Write my own books. The ONLY help I take is photographs - but I'm going to do that myself too in the future, if you can believe that. Hehe. Well, the videos at least!
Technology DOES have some advantages.
Anwyay, enough on that front.
If you haven't already - pick up the Rolls Royce of Fitness, best damn thing ever you could do for yourself right about now.
Hell, it even has mobile compatible videos, 5 "hot" ones!
Sexy chests and hairy ones aside, tech does have its advantages doesnt it.
That pesky, all invasive, all knowing, all pervasive TECH...
This might sound a bit odd, but I've been thinking about if for days, I haven't come to any conclusive answer either way.
And as A tom tommer recently told me.
"You're an odd dude!"
That I am friend, but a sensical odd dude, hehe. (He broke group rules, was booted, so was bitching)
Anyway, yes, conclusive answers...
On two questions I'm going to ask YOU, friend.
Now, before I start please - please - do NOT get back with "you think too much".
Thinking too much is a good thing.
If you're thinking right and the right WAY, which most people do the polar opposite of.
And please dont get back with silence or apathy. Hehe.
If you do ...
... well, nothing. You do. But I want them answers, hehe, and I want 'em from YOU. I.e. YOUR VIEWPOINT!
First question, something you might could help with. Second, maybe ... maybe not.
Without more ado.
First, WHY are more people not leaving reviews?
Friend, it boggles the mind.
You get a 10% auto discount for leaving reviews, 10% for sharing, then you get a mention on these newsletters, special coupons etc ... the whole shebang.
It ain't that you dont love the products.
(or, you wouldn't be buying).
I could go on Google.
I could wax lyrical about "why people dont leave reviews".
I've got tons of reasons why.
but I want to hear it from the horse's mouth - YOU.
The review link is there damn near everywhere - most of all, in the purchase email you get.
Some of you have bought products, not left reviews for all.
A few days ago, I pondered if "maybe they like some products more than the others".
But the reviews are equal amongst all, so that ain't it either.
Apathy or "do nothing" - or "we're too busy" - well - I dont buy any of those reasons, and I hate it when people tell me that anyway, because it's not true, if you truly want to do something you'll find time for it - plus, clicking a link and leaving a review for something you LIKE - I mean trust me, if people didnt like it, you'd see all sorts of Bozo like BS out there - but it's mystifying to me!
A person, of course like me who emails Amazon back with comments on how to improve their service - unasked for.
No, I dont have too much time on my hands, before you ask ...
My former friend Charles did. Hehe.
(Unfortuantely he never used it productively).
Try writing over 10,000 words a day, working out - and doing all else I do, then tell me about "no time" ...
Hell, try, 500 or a 1000 a day and keep it up for amonth.
So it ain't the no time BS either.
So folks, for this one - please, YOU TELL ME.
Aint nothing wrong with spreading the word, is there?
And even if the review isn't 5 star, so what?
yes, most are.
That isn't a double edged sword i.e. I'm not telling you that only 5 star reviews will be accepted, approved, what not - hell, that link you use? With your email? i.e purchase email?
I can't even modify that review unless I got into the DB to do it, and trust me, I'm not in the least bit interested in doing that.
It's there for a reason, I set IT PURPOSELY so I couldn't modify it so people would feel more comfrortable.
After Bozo Keith said this "This author only wants FIVE star reviews".
Maybe we all want 5 star.
What wrong with that?
But I want HONEST above all - so folks again, write back and tell me!
YOUR words and answers are what count.
I've emailed some of you personally as well for it, but ...
But anyway, question numero TWO!
That being, what the hezey. Hehe.
I even forget what I was going to ask you.
I guess, what I'm saying is why people ignore the sensical and embrace the nonsensical ...
Especially more so these days.
You have Jassy jumping about her super skinny self, yet when I tell her she was "normal" in 2019 without this gym madness (trust me, she ain't doing it because she wants to be super skinny, if that were to be the case, she would have done it a long time go. Dig beneath the surface, you'll likely find that her big ticket investment clients want it, so in a tough market...)
... which is fine, but SAY it.
But yeah, I know y'all can't help me much with the answer on that one. We all know it, already!
People just dont want to come out and say it.
Running scared, apathy, all those reasons...
Anyway, I'll be happy if you can answer question numero ONE for me definiteively, hehe.
And leave more reviews, please!
Timothy, PLEASE - use that link you get in your email. (and the rest of you too, hehe).
(he liked "Jump Rope Mania"!)
"Makes me feel like a boxer doing these routines, Rahul!"
So said the man himself...
But anyway, yeah.
LEt me know.
I'll be listening!
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!
The last bastion, or the last stand, I often like to call the 90's, before it all started to fall APART.
Before the world started to go to hell and a time when men were men, women were women, men were real men that did a hard day's work and werent shy about downing a beer - or two - or ten at the end of it (well, they had the Tom Tom's then as well, but near not as many!) - women would be happy enough to take care of the child and let the man do what the man does i.e PROVIDE...
Normal times, natural times.
Times of great, heady optism.
I should know. I grew up during those times!
Anyway, the name Bevan probably isnt' familiar to most of you.
Except a few of you "Poms" reading this, hehe.
He was - is - one of the Aussie cricketing greats, and in many ways a pioneering force and influence in what was then still a novelty and not cricket for the purists ie. "one day cricket".
Which the purists scoffed at as being "wham bang thank you Ma'am", and now weaned on an even more whammy diet of T20's and T10's, they all love the ODI with 50 overs!
Persoanlly, I thought one day international cricket provided the perfect match between wham bang thank you man IPL and other such 20-20 leagues which are over in three hours - and test cricket which spans out over 5 days - or is supposed to.
Tests were supposed to the boring, puranitical version of cricket.
Odi's were supposed to be for the hipsters, slick shysters, dashers!
Bevan was a pioneer fitness wise in an ear where beer bellies and drinks galore after a game were still rampant in cricket.
But more than that, it was his attitude towards chasing tall, tall targets - and WINNING - which was nowhere near as common as is on the batter friendly highways they prepare these days for cricket that really in my books sets him apart - and the way he went about it.
The Aussie cricket team of that time was probbaly the greatest ever.
Led by Ice man Steve Waugh, they had dashers and stylists at the top in Mark Waugh, Ricky Ponting, and hitters galore like Andy Symonds and so forth - any ONE of whom could change and turn a match on its head on his day.
Someone always seemed to!
And down at the last of the specialist batters - they had -well - another ice man - Michael Bevan!
He was not a six - or boundary hitter. In an era where clearing the boundary is the norm (today) - that might sound pedestrian.
In HIS era, hitting the boundaries was considered "required" to keep up with chasing tall totals.
Indeed, it is in a way.
Bevan though hardly ever hit any - - and his record stands out as - STILL - being a batter that has helped his team win MOST times when chasing - or damn close. An average to be damn proud of, even when compared to today's batters that are molly coddled and provided with every form of assistance they can get, right from rules favoring them - to pitches - to balls - to heavy bats that can be swung very easily - and so forth.
Thats not criticizing today's great guys, it's just me "saying" what is . . .
But anyway, Bevan won many a match for his team when chasing tall totals, when the rest of the dashers had failed!
He did this in a way most people could barely understand.
He did it by running - and focusing on the 1's and 2's - which down the line, turned into BIG ones!
When chasing 300 plus run totals, which was HUGE back then, you didnt see Bevan focus solely on the big goal.
He had it in mind, yes.
but he focused on the 1's and 2's!
He understood, better than most, the truism of two things.
One, a big goal can be taken care of if you focus on the small victories and tasks that add up to a lot.
He focused on converting each ball into a run.
ONe run into two.
The 2's into 3, boundary if possible.
He literally, my friend, ran the opposition ragged!
Two, that a bear can be eaten - one bite at a time!
A target of 300 in 50 overs was HUGE Back then, and you'd need to get 6 an over for it to happen.
Which was tough back then too.
Bevan focused on each ball ,and the runs he could milk from each ball!
It was sheer genius, the way the Aussies started with a blaze, then consolidated in the middle overs, then went for one final push in the end.
And usually won.
From impossible situations.
I remember a match against the Proteas in the late 90's where ... the target was 284.
The Aussies were 90/4, ALL their star batters gone.
Bevan And Steve Waugh, hardly a one day batter - were there.
I still remember turning off the TV saying "oh well" - though I didnt think they had lost, I didnt think they would win either!
I remember my Dad saying "all over" as well!
Next day, we woke up - and lo!
Bevan 100, Steve Waugh 90 something - they won!
Another mammoth chase in that series, 333 was done in a similar manner by grafting 90's from Ponting and Darren Lehmann - another classic!
This is not to educate you on cricket, friend.
It's to tell you the value of GRAFTING, something often ignored, but something leading to HUGE results if done with persistence.
The Aussie cricket team of that era had IMMENSE Self belief.
It would NOT be overstating to say they "knew no defeat".
They truly never thought about it - and the results showed.
POnder all this as you start your day - go about it - or head on to bed.
You might achieve some spectacular things, my friend, if YOU take these lessons to heart!
PS - Do also read the 10 Commandments of Physical Success in the 0 Excuses Fitness - to me, thats the most important part of the entire book!!!
PPS - It's the small actions that lead up to big things being "normal" friend, and even bigger goals being set, which is how it should be.
7 - 10 emaisl for me a day is normal while most people struggle with sending one daily without fail!
Think about that - and how I GOT THERE!
I didnt get there by starting out this way.
I started out with one a day.
I wanted more.
I upped the ante some. Stuck with it
Then before I knew it, I naturally expanded my "area of comfort" or comfort zone or whatever it's called.
Stuck with that.
And so forth!
There is a very valuable lesson to be learned in this - fitness wise too!
Another short one this, friend.
And it's one of the best stretches ever.
In the ADVANCED book on isometric i.e. Volume two of "Isometric and Flexibility Training" ( a book that has been fantastically well recieved by EVERYONE barring a single Tom Tom from ... I belivee Italy? Not sure, but I think it was Amazon Italy he left the "ridiculous retard" review on)...
Look, fella, I dont care about stars or not.
Well, we all do - I love 'em as much as you do!
5 star reviews?
but HOnEST is where the rubber meets the road, friend.
And that review was neither one of the above - a typical whiny Mama's boy tom Tommer review about "the photos are terrible" .
I mean really, like John Walker said on the Animal Kingdom Workouts book, "training books aren't about grammar" (there was no grammer mistakes in the book, I believe, he was replying to Bozo Schofield on yet another inane comment of his).
And the stetch, without further ado?
The Rahul Mookerjee patented squat is a MUST to do with this - along with another "one leg" hamstring stretch the doers know about ... while squatting.
with these two, here is the stretch that works wonders.
Your thighs will feel NEW - like nothing you've ever done before.
If you're huge into Hindu squats, climbing, high reps etc - all of it - this will stretch those sore quads out like NOTHING you've ever done.
It's tough, mark my words.
Get your hands and knees on the floor, and then place your legs so that heels are under your BOOTOCKS.
I didnt say Butt, because Bozo will be back if he reads that (he's disappeared for the nonce, maybe Mandy kicked his gluetous maximum once and for all MAX) ...
Then, in that position, keep the spine straight.
Lean backwards as far as you can go
I dont know if I mention the "thighs at right angles" version to the lower legs version of this in the book. I believe I do ... ?
But THIS one, my friend, is the one you should aspire to.
SLOWLY, breathe IN and bend back as far as you can go, for a lot of you, that wont be far at all.
Work at it.
The sheer "release" you'll feel in your quads - well - that will tell you all.
And again, caution. It's very easy to overdo it and tear a quad or two. Don't do that!
Safe, sane and consensual, whoa, wait a minute, wasn't that supposed to be on the other site. hehe.
But, safe and sane applies...
Go for it!
PS - Oh, and do the calf stretches along with it. So thats 4 that will give you the lower body stretch of your LIFE like nothing else will , can , or ever did!
(No Schofield stretches, thats on the other side, hehe).
