Ya'll on this list probably remember the drunken and rather lengthy, pissed of rant a friend (former) of mine sent me about an innocous post on pull-ups on WeShat (which apparently hit the spot as it were).
I've covered that before, but he ended with the following.
"Your tips are useless! Yo ujust say just do pull-ups and handstand pushups and provide no other value!"
Now, the rest of the rant has been covered on the sites and emails before.
If you want to take a look, either do a search or let me know . . .
But really, this silly value virtue signalling which the "so called gurus" always jumped up and down over, and which seems to have, for whatever reason gained a lot of traction this year. (and more so with every passing month).
Maybe the Kung Flu is indeed driving folks insane ...
But anyway, it ain't just him that had the "no value" grouse, so lets address - and DEBUNK.
First off my friend, you signed up for one email a day - and you get like 6 to 8 daily. If that ain't value, I dont know what is. (for free).
Second, his REAL grouse was this - the link I (or the links I) specify in my email i.e. how dare I "sell with every email). (and make $$ off it). According to some people its perfectly fine to pay huge bucks for everything except less than a fraction of that for life changing and life changing fitness info. . .
I get it. My stuff actually requires you to get down to brass tacks and DO.
In other words, not everyone is ready to be a doer.
And call 'em out on it, and the rants start.
But really, I'd rather be honest and point people to a product which can solve their "problems" and address their pain points as opposed to dancing around the mulberry bush and pretending I dont sell or dont want to when I clearly do .
(and be a "so called value providing Tom Tom").
Really, I dont think there is anything at all wrong with that (as opposed to shammy marketing, sneaky discounts, wacko and inane "lead ups to the sale" and so forth, all of which is designed for one purpose - to make a sale - and it usually doesnt when done that way).
I'd rather be honest about it, and am.
But anyway, back to value.
Off the top of my head, lets look at three of th elast email sI sent.
This morning, the first one was about "Roofus Rumpus Schofield and more".
Lesson - hypocrisy, and MORE, and yes it applies to fitness.
Then there was one in there about what to do if you do NOT want to or feel comfortable posting genuine reviews, and how to work up to it.
Its a thought many have, and I addressed it pretty well I believe!
Then, third - there was one about handstand pushups, and I explained to you why my latest product on it is not only something anyone serious about fitness should get, but is also worth the (SO CALLED) big bucks I charge for it.
(Yes, the Keith James of this world are already throwing fits over a product they weren't even asked to buy either directly or not). (more on that later).
So I dont know, bro.
Methinks thats value compounded x 10 if not more.
Then you have my books and products.
Most experienced athletes can't finish or even get halfway through my workouts when they first start.
Let alone the average Joe and couch potato and Jane (and Bozo, or combo therein).
Valuoooooooo, you say?
But anyway, we all know the Rolls Royce is my flagship, and premier and first product I put out here - - that, and Gorilla Grip.
And being a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a bazillion ... well, I put out five videos for the former which have got not only rave reviews thus far, but even with all the trolling, not ONE single negative review.
And more on FREE - - other than these emails and such, years ago, I figured I'd give people a sneak peek into the videos for free.
It was a great idea, and an AWESOME, spectacular SUCCESS - but it's something I no longer do, and will never do ever for obvious reasons, but the original videos are up HERE - the sneak peeks, rather - and the one I love the most is "huffing and puffing".
And those short snippets should be more than enough to give YOU an idea of the superlative nature of the workouts I teach you in the Rolls Royce (for those that dont know already).
And of course troll fodder too, but we'll let that happen. Hehe.
Gotta draw the Bozo back out, hehe. He's gone a bit silent!
(Mommy pulled his Internet most likely).
But anyway, Gorilla Grip doesnt have any videos, because the nature of grip training courses means its impossible to put together a one size fits all workout - even more so than my regular stuff.
But it's still one of my best selling products!
So value, or no value ... you, my friend DECIDE!
I'll be back soon. Just wanted to address a bit of idiocy, and I have now.
PS - IF you want more videos let me know for which product specifically, and we'll see what we can conjure up, hehe.
I dont know if you guys have noticed this, but the discounts etc that are being handed out these days - are - in one word - SHAM.
And the rampant price rise etc - dont get me wrong - I'd be the LAST person to complain about this given my own prices which are higher than almost anyone else's in the market out there (but with damned good reason - my workouts are tougher and give you better results than anyone out there!) - but some of the stuff I'm seeing going on in 2021 ain't just price gouging or highway robbery.
It's above all a dumb way to do business.
Green tea, for instance, I noticed (in a country where it isn't really a "staple"). (this is from Amazon India and I've been following the madness there for good reason because I sell stuff there too).
(yes, I sell physical tea etc too).
Some of the brands out there ...
Here is how it goes.
New brand comes out. Special introductory price.
Second purchase - customer pays more.
Ok, fair enough ...
Customer has to buy TWO of the same thing.
The price skyrockets, but the "two of the same thing" doesnt change. If anything, it becomes "3".
All of this within a couple of weeks.
If you think I'm kidding - no - I'm not.
Obviously I haven't bought of any of that gimmicky stuff, but many people get taken in by the first discount.
Yours truly gets tea from Cicy and Taobao, hehe (though increasingly I'm avoiding the latter like the plague from China too).
But anyway, thats not the point i.e. where I source and enjoy my teas.
The point is this - when yours truly gives you discounts, there are NO strings attached.
As John Walker, a great customer from the UK once said "my discounts are uber generous".
And I've been known to do up discounts for almost ALL doers - with NO strings attached.
For instance, a couple of weeks in response to my "favorite product question", a great customer from Greece "Panourgias" availed of the then on going discount (I gave him an extra discount on top of that) on the compilation on pull-ups.
At that time, i was doing 20% off on ALL compilations.
I gave him 25.
I dont know why. Maybe because he's a doer!
But anyway, next purchase he made?
I gave him the same discount again - with NO Strings attached.
No "you gotta buy this much the next time around".
Then another example - the $400 discount we've got going on now (i.e. if you order $400 worth of products, you get a 20% auto discount regardless of the product).
However, customers such as Sandy who I wrote about on the other site that availed of this offer - it doesnt mean YOU won't be eligible for the next offer when it comes!
Thats how to me, discounts should be as opposed to flat out gouging.
But anyway, what does your truly el caveman know, hehe.
Me, personaly, I dont give out discounts except to those that deserve it, and if I give 'em out in general, there are no strings attached other than minimum cart value etc.
Plain and transparent, just like yours truly.
And for the Bozos that claim "he's in it just for money" (some idiot recently wrote in - and so did the Bozo with "since I have so much money to burn") ...well, this above discount has been ongoing for the past one and a half week, and I believe it's the first time I've even brought it up ...
Believe me, I'm the last person you'd think that would "run after you" asking you to buy my products.
Only for seriously committed DOERS!
And that, my brother, is that.
PS - If you haven't picked up Animal Kingdom Workouts as yet, do so now. One of our (my) best ever, if not THE BEST (for the best).
PS #2 - Sometimes the coupon codes "barf" - so if you've got one (personally) from me, and it didnt work the first or second time for some reason, let me know and I'll have it looked at (I have no idea why that happens sometimes, but no biggie either way - will get it taken care of - let me know!).
At the outset, let me clear one thing.
When I say core, I dont mean that silly little six pack or twelve pack that the nuts at the 'Jim Shim' die for , spend bazillions of dollars on protien shakes for, do millions of bunny "shunny" crunches, use useless gadgets and so forth.
Tummy trimmers, crash diets and so forth and yet, those muscles never really show like they want .
What they want is a CORRUGATED CORE, except they dont know it, because they've consciously bought into the six pack madness.
If there was something utterly ridiculous in the fitness world, its the craze for six packs - if you've ever heard the saying back it up?
I'm sure you have.
And most of the idiots with artificial six packs have NOTHING to show "behind" to back it up.
No legs, no core, no glutes (but I guess that means Bozo Schofields dont chase 'em, hehe) - and certainly no grip and upper back.
It's an unnatural look that starts to fade away as soon as you step out of the gym - or even in it, while you stop popping pills (or injecting testosterone, or any of the silly things men do in that regard).
Thats another thing, by the way.
Just why the heck someone would need to "inject" T into themselves is beyond me, but gaggles of men do it.
Instead, why not get MORE T than you ever bargained for - naturally?
Ah, but wait.
That sort of training is HARD training - real man training.
It constitutes things most people will never do, like hiking hills in blazing heat and humidity for years multiple times for one, and doing it in snow, rain, sleet or so forth, or pounding out 150 pull-up per workout ...
But anyway ...
Back in the day I used to be fat.
NO secret there. It's even there on the cover of some of my books, hehe, (hence Bozos like "Keith James" and Mama's boys throw hissies over it, and hence I do not, and will NOT change the cover of ANY of my books).
And you'd think with all the pushups and pull-up I did, my grip would be stronger than it is now, if just for the insanely moronic and ASS-ININE logic the BOZOS at the Jim have.
That being, more weight = more strength.
(and injuries, and other crap, but whose counting).
More weight - more strength, eh?
Well, first off, if this was true, why the fat focks can't do pull-ups like I do -and did - is beyond me?
But it's true.
And my grip, my friend, only got to the scary levels it did when my CORE and rest of the body was in solid shape!
If you've ever done a REAL grip, you'll know you do it like a WRESTLER - naturally - to get that UNNATURAL pull to your grip!
And the only way you can do that?
Is, much like when you're throwing a punch to flatten, you engage the core and legs.
And THAT is how the grip goes from "ok" to truly spectacular - I cannot empashize this enough.
When I do my leg workouts, I feel a sense of INVINCIBILITY.
Believe me, those leg muscles "pumping" under your clothes?
Thats when you know it's real training as opposed to the idiotic machines where you do leg presses and such.
It's when that muscle literally "bulges" out of your thighs WITHOUT you consciously trying to do so.
And it's when you have a true CORRGUATED core, my friend - that you can truly have a GRIP that is beyond any sort of belief, scary and INHUMAN LEVELS.
No, the latter doesn't work without the former.
And its damn near impossible to get the former without the latter.
My courses linked above have got praise from all over the world, rave reviews, and many other things due to one reason - they work - and they work better than anything else out there.
Combine the above with Animal Kingdom Workouts, and your grip will go from "beyond scary" to "truly out of this world levels".
Trust me on this one!
I write about it often, dont I?
Tell the world what you're going to do, but show it first.
Keep your TRUE goals - your real goals - to yourself, or a very very select group of people, maybe your Master mind if you have one.
Do NOT, in most cases, tell sposuses, "friends", significant others and so forth.
People deem this as being "overly paranoid".
Ask Marconi for one ,that invented the wireless who was almost "certified" by his friends for they thought he was a loon, so forward thinking was he.
Or, ask the Wright brothers before they built the airplane, or Edison before the lightbulb, or Einstein, before the theory of relativity.
The great Jeff Bezos (I was recently talking about NEVER doing business with anyone on a very large scale other than Amazon, for obvious reasons - for the most part) said it the best when he said that the greatest ACCOLADE an inventor - any inventor - can receive is when people yawn and say ", ok, not this again".
Speaks Volumes as to some of the reactions yours truly gets, hehe.
But anyway, this morning I literally "heard" bad news from the old homestead.
Turned out a gift I gav emy daugher a while back - something which had HUGE sentimental value attached to it for reasons I won't get into here - something which I've been keeping with me forever, and wanted to pass for a while to my daughter "broke".
The annoyance I felt - was - INDESCRIBABLE.
It ain't about the money either.
For the idiots and morons who claim that "I gave my old laptop" away to a charity because it was worthless - well - think - again.
Same thing with that laptop, which worked so well for me for NINE YEARS, on which I created many a product, which stood thet est of time and travel, and was a Toshiba, and so forth.
It ain't all about the money, my friend.
SENTIMENT is priceless, and while this wasn't a laptop I gave her, from the minute I gave it to her, I felt "negatiive forces" working against me and her.
Obviously the idiots reading this will call me paranoid, but those that call me and rightly so a "modern day Gandhi" or seer or pioneer and so forth will get it.
"Rahul, if your gut tells you something - nine times out of ten it is RIGHT".
I knew this from an early age, way before my buddy from the MArines made this statement about a certain landlady I was renting from in 2017. (temporarily).
Same thing here.
The people being negative don't even KNOW it, but they hated the "gift" from the get go.
Indeed, a lot of people hate what I do - hate me - hate my relationship with my daughter (the only real family I have) - - and do anything to complain about it and wreck the relationship, but never quite succeed.
When your up against the subconscious, my friend, few things can succeed.
Maybe inanimate objects cannot, but I never put much conscious thought into the gift after I gave it.
Anyway, fitness wise, same thing for YOU.
Do NOT tell anyone your goals of doing 500 pushups at a go - a very worthy goal many of you have - especially if you're at less than ZERO now.
Do not, for instance tell anyone you will go down from 120-60 kgs - except perhaps your coach with your best intentions at heart.
Do NOT - never - tell anyone your BUSINESS PLANS.
And most of all, never, never let that wall you build around YOUR MOST SECRET AND INNERMOST desires ever be penetrated.
That, my friend is the takeaway from this one.
And I'll be back soon/
So says the cowboy from Texas, hehe.
"The Hombre from Texas", hehe.
Or, any of the other (it's crossed 1400 now, that list of names - and someday, I'll write a book on just the list of names I keep getting called, hehe) names people loveeeee to call yours truly.
But really, back in the day (it seems back in the day now ever since he ranted about my book on pull-ups) "Charles the former friend" and the Bozo himself contacted me about the Bozo.
Apparenty the Bozo sent Charles more than 200 messages all day long, all night long (which is about par for the Bozo), most of them to the tune of "Rahul is mentioning me! Boo, hoo!"
I wonder if they knew the chuckles a person Dejon, a real strongman and - me - were having over it, not to mention the world at general.
Especially the way the Bozo pronounces Chuck - for some odd reason he keeps pronouncing it as "Ch-oo-k".
I dont know, maybe thats the accent thing coming in ...
But anyway, English is hardly one of the Bozo's strong points, as his rants on Amazon show, and that sad, given he grew up in "Ole Blighty".
Anyway . . .
Why I won't stop mentioning the Bozo, you ask?
Well, bear with me a MINUTE my friend.
Yes, I get it. I've responded to him x 1000000 in ways he'd never imagine or dream of, and I'm just getting started.
I've truly rubbed his nose in the DUST, and continue to do so, and will do so.
But, bear with me for a minute. Bear with the man with a an elephant's memory talking about the Wacko with an elephant gut, hehe.
When the Bozo started trolling me and some other people with not just trolls, but despicable memes, racist thoughts, and much worse - NO-ONE (well, certainly not "Chuck" who said "he sent me a few", but oddly enough NEVER once condemned the Bozo for doing it, instead implicitly SUPPORTING him by not doing so) .... NO-ONE Told him to stop or calm down.
No-one told him that with his various attacks on other folks.
No-one told him to calm down when he posted those rants and reviews on Amazon.
If anything, he played the "poor Bozo being blamed" female blame game (given what he is i.e. a cuck at heart, that doesn't surprise me one damned bit) and got away with it on the Chuck and a few other fronts.
The only person man enough to tell the Bozo to go straight to hell was Dejon.
A bonafide Gorilla himself, hehe.
Maybe the reason Charles never told me himself is because "he deep down inside felt the same way about me".
Or, maybe it's what the Bozo said.
"Ch-ooooooooooo-ck created the memes!"
A claim I found specious then, and find insane NOW.
Charles has some strange thought about pull-ups, sure, and does all he can to convince me that he's "big", not fat.
But that doesnt mean he's a troll.
Quite the opposite.
But anyway, THAT is primarily why I will not stop - until I deem it the time to stop (or until the groveling apology comes, and it will).
I'm sick and tired of these idiots (they tend to be Nazi feminist for the most part - either male or female) that do all they like when they're on top, but when someone turns the tables on them x 10000, they whine and moan.
If you can't take the heat, stay out of the goddamned kitchen.
Come to think of it, making sandwiches and staying out of the kitchen barefoot is exactly what Bozo Schofield does NOT want to do . . .
Poor chappie. (pie).
(as the Bozo would pronouce).
But inanity aside, that is why.
It's not so much the sales the Bozo makes for me, especially the ADVANCED book on pull-ups which he trolle dby saying "Rahul is a super stud" (even in the trolling, the truth and jealousy sparkles, as it did when he said the book was the jewel in the Mookerjee CROWN of fitness books).
It's because, as the Trumpinator once famously said, "we will never forget".
And it's because actions have consequences, and some people need to learn that the hard way, and so they WILL and are.
And thats why, for those wondering. Hehe.
PS - Oh, almost forgot the "ending pimp" to this - Animal Kingdom Workouts is THE course everyone BE Talking about now. Check it out here.
Back in 2019, I was on one of my numerous factory visits in China - this time for green tea - or so I ... THOUGHT!
This factory was a new one I hadn't worked with before, and when I found them online, I contacted them - and then quickly got the contact information etc of the salesperson handing my "case".
Which was a certain lovely indeed 23 year old girl "Andrea".
I really should title this email "why the idiots who think I'm jumping every girl's bones I meet are pretty much dead on wrong for the most part", or something like that.
Actually, they're not wrong so much as they have "no clue".
And hence the Bozos wanking around with wankers and beer bottles in hand late at night pestering women about "can I be your servant".
Anyway, Glyn the public welfare nutjob will LOVE this if he's reading.
Glyn, my little fella, ears perked please!
*pat on head*
Anyway, pats aside (ugh) this lady seemed OK to deal with initially until when crunch time came. Before that, she was friendly as ever, and I flirted a little with her "business wise", but I always had the feeling of "something wasnt right in terms of the professionalism standpoint".
Something wasn't right, and sure enough, when "push came to shove", there was an argument.
I hate to say it, ladies, but business is business, and on that one, she was WRONG. She promised somthing, and didnt do it. Bottom line.
And she was BRAZENLY unapolegetic about it, which you'll understand later why.
Or part of why.
Anyway, when it all came to a head, she introduced me to her "lao ban" (manager).
And there we're introduced to "Medam" Cicy as she prounounced it, a lady who I've disagreed with on just about everything, but yet done and do business with, yet at the end of the day have a cordial and functional relationship, a lady who HATES what I say and think about China, yet doesnt hate ME, and has done all she can to help me ...
Maybe, but also a lesson in two things - one, business is business. And two, there's always room for compromise and moving ahead.
Lest you think there was any romantic whatever in all this?
You'd be dead WRONG.
Every time either she and I have brought the topic up indirectly even for OTHER People, it was like a "dead fish" feeling.
I never thought of her "that way".
And Cicy, for her part, could truly care less about it.
Well, I wouldn't say that. She does care, from what she told me about being fat, and (when I was gypped out of some money by a woman in China, the comment about "is she beautiful"?) . . .
But for the most part, talk anything like that to her, and she flat out doesnt "care".
She isn't necessarily offended, or not.
To her, it's "so what".
What really lights her BRAIN UP and why I love her?
It's MONEY! And the chance of making a new biz deal, which hey, I get it. I have the same excitement every time I make a new biz deal too ...
Anyway, Madam (so she loves to be called) Andrea deleted me off her list, and later when I saw her profile picture one day - the WORK picture?
Believe it or not, it was Andrea with her "man" - literally - on a leash.
And if that doesnt make Bozo Glyn Schofield whose currently pestering Dominas in the UK to do inane things for free JUMP straight out of his chair, Cheetos flying, beer crashing, I dont know WHAT will!
And if that isn't enough of a lesson on why I ALWAYS keep, for the most part, business seperate from pleasure, and why YOU SHOULD too, there will never be enough reason.
(And enough for the idiots who claim "he cheats on his wife").
True, I've failed in the second last regard occasionally.
Sometimes, those girls get past your defenses, which in my case were never ever up anyway. Hey, my wife did!
And the only time I've been involved in business with either my wife, or other women where "feelings" of whatever nature were involved.
Dont get me started.
Massive disaster x 1000 ... .(in some cases, that disaster lasted for YEARS. Super UGH).
And therefore, if there is one thing I caution everyone to do, even the Bozos if that makes sense, is to keep business SEPERATE from pleasure.
Believe me, the two do NOT mix.
Anyway, where am I leading up with all this you might think.
I dont know ...
Maybe as Panourgias, a great customer once told me "Sexy legs and hills!" (I think he said "mini skirts", hehe).
So maybe it's a pimp for my Rolls Royce fitness system, which of course has (interestingly enough) an entire chapter dedicated to nothing but training - on hills - and an entire one dedicated to MASSAGE as well (sorry, for those thinking, there ain't no hanky panky there either).
Or maybe it's a pimp for Advanced Hill Training ...
But to be honest, it's just one of those "gut spills", or brain dumps, whichever you call it, and I felt compelled to share it with you, so I did.
PS - HERE is where you can pick up Pushup Central - a "cold and SOLID" course that will keep you BRUTALLY HONEST if I might say so. I realize the wording makes no sense, but get the course, and it will. Nothig hammers you quite like pushups do!
PS #2 - I was supposed to write a book about Cicy and Andrea, especially her typo of "kissing a foot" (I honestly have no idea where that came from (one of those "she'll never live it down" comments, but we were discussing books, I believe, of a certain nature that Andrea loves - and I believe I do too in the right environment - and of course the Bozo does too, but NOT Cicy. It was a typo, I really think it was. yet, the typos are who we ARE, hehe, without even knowing it). Anyway, that book never got written. Maybe in the future!
For now, we'll stick to fitness on THIS here site, haha.
I know that sounds strange, but bear with me - and yes, I didnt so much "learn" as it reinforced what I already know (and do).
But anyway, I bought a different "style" (flavor) of toothpaste from the one I normally use.
For whatever reason, I've been wanting to buy this one for a while.
I dont know if it's the blue color or peppermint or what not - but the ad just "struck home".
More than that, China colgate (at least the ones Ive bought) with that color have always been super good, and being I was buying the same brand?
I figured it would be GREAT.
Upon opening the pack though, and trying it - it wasnt.
But looking at the ad for it, would I buy it again ?
I'd probably be tempted to yes for whatever odd reason, even though I know the toothpaste ain't that great!
But anyway, thats a very very rare example of marketing done right - or maybe it just hit home in terms of the color combo etc for me, I dont know. I've never seen most people in China use the brand of toothpaste I do, so ...
But it brings to mind an interesting point.
Those people - and I'm talking not just fitness books, but everything in general - that talk and market a big game, but their product falls FLAT on their face.
Those people that invest a ton of time and money into taking "the perfect picture", proof reading their book about a bazillion times, making sure the cover is a piece of art, and thereforth ...
Yours truly, my friend, has always been the exact and polar opposite. Overdeliver while UNDERPROMISING - and this holds especially true for the fluff etc like pictures, book cover etc.
I always laugh at people who say "covers matter a hell of a lot" to the exclusion of CONTENT.
True, covers sell - big time.
But the sort of person that judges a book by it's cover and that alone is an idiot in my opinion.
I'd rather customers like I have who know that despite there being no fluff or filler in the books, my books deliver.
Despite the covers not being fancy in the least.
(Most are black and white!).
Despite no fancy showboating, showbiz style stuff etc ...
And I'm only getting MORE this way, as you can see from the cover of Profound Handstands.
Would I sell more if I made the workouts easier, and SOLD OUT (in my view)?
Would I sell more if I gussied up the book covers etc?
Truth be told, I could care less about any of that and therefore I will NOT do it.
I want the covers, the books, everything to emphasize my bare bones BRUTAL training style.
And they do!
And that, to me is what really matters - along with the results.
And my very best book ever is a prime example of just that - Animal Kingdom Workouts.
If you haven't got it as yet - you'll want to do so NOW.
It may sound completely counter intiuitive, and maybe it doesnt, I dont know.
Maybe it sounds elementary, Watson.
(that last bit about Watson rang so true for reasons I wont mention here!)
But elementary or not - we have ALL been guilty at one time or the other of not just not doing it, but doing the precise and polar opposite.
Me, when I first started making money off the fitness business all those years ago for one.
I dont even mean "big" money. I mean any money.
And when I first started making sales off the site and other sites I have, my first thought wasnt what I just told you to do.
Incredibly, and this might sound familiar to YOU, I'd use the cash for what I needed at the time or thought I wanted.
This doesnt mean the business failed or anything.
Quite obviously not.
Other hand, for long periods, I'd notice that while I'd do well, I wasnt quite reaching the levels of sucess I desired.
Now, to me succes is a journey more than the destination.
I realize most may not think I'm right on that one, and thats fine, but there is a reason I say what I am. Believe me, think about it yourself, you'll know what I mean.
And you'l likely agree, but for long periods, I "felt" I wasn't quite getting there.
I can very confidently and unequivocally say this NOW - that the #1 overriding reason other than mental aspects was this - I wasnt doing what I just told you to do.
Incredibly, the minute I started to do this, all other things fell into place pretty much.
And as the sales graph keeps shooting UPWARDS, I gotta write this to you - in the hope that someone out there who is starting what they might think is a "side gig" sees the potential in it - knows what to do and what not - and knows the truism of "aggressively REINVESTING".
I have said it before, I'll say it again, and it bears repeating.
Feed the business first and foremost no matter WHAT else needs to be done, and I mean what else.
Naturally, you dont starve yourself to death doing this. This doesnt need to be taken to extremes, but skipping out on the nightly beer for one is a sacrifice you can damn well make, my friend - along wth many others - if you're serious about what they call LASTING fitness.
Did I just say fitness. I meant success.
But really, it applies to fitness too ie. give your fitness the time and attention it DESERVES. Don't put it off until tomorrow. Don't make it the last thing to do - make it the FIRST. And you'll rich REAP - reap rich - REWARDS if you do it this way.
The above isn't the whole key, of course. There are plenty more, and the first edition of Zero to Hero contains the most important onces. Check the book out now if you so choose.
On the other fronts, I just put out another edition of Rolls Royce Fitness - with a few changes I'll talk about later.
Let me just say though that the "before and after" pictures is a truism you shouldn't ignore either.
Neither is the "before - before - after".
What do I mean?
Well, patience, I'll reveal all, along with a rather idiotic review for the book as well. Hehe.
Well, not entirely a bad question, but the reason is simple - one, because I've never had requests for videos and not the book.
The other way around - all the time.
But just the videos without the book doesn't make any sense for most people. The COMBO is what does.
And so despite having paperback only options, despite having paperback PLUS digital download options, despite digital ONLY options, there is not and will not ever in the forseeable future be a "videos only" option.
If you've bought the book from elsewhere, and want just the videos NOW, well, contact me and I'll finangle another option for you.
(as I did for Jonathan).
And second reason?
Well, even though the videos have been very very well received indeed, and people have asked for MORE - personally, you know me.
Mr Caveman isn't exactly a fan of videos ...
That said, I'll probably do some in the future for Animal Kingdom Workouts and the books on pull-ups, but truth be told, I prefer the written word.
Yes I realize that dates me, and I realize the "world is going digital and video".
But there are tons of Dinos like you and I out there as well that prefer paperbacks, like DVD's the old fashioned way and so forth, so I'm not so concerned about which way the world in general is going.
And, in any case, I've always done the polar opposite of what the "sheeple" in general do, hehe.
It's served me very well until now, and I don't see myself changing anytime soon!!
Alrighty then , thats it for now. . .
PS - Pick up the Rolls Royce of Fitness here - it truly WILL turn you into a beast, a PURRING one at that . . . !
Do me a favor, my friend.
Take a pen and piece of paper right now.
I'd prefer you WRITE, but if you want to use the computer, so be it (but please, no dumbphones).
If you're one of the guys that requested me for the course on isometrics too - YES - this applies to YOU TOO!
(You know who you are!)
Hidden strongman secrets.
The keys to improving your "rep counts".
Improving the flexibility levels you already have.
How and why the Great Gama, Alexander Zass, Bruce Lee etc trained, and WHY . . .
And so forth.
.. . .. ...
Any others I have missed?
Write back - and let me know, but those are the most common things, and yet, what is it that most people MISS?
You might, if you're smart and a DOER write back and say "Hey, Rahul, they help HEAL from injuries too if you do 'em right!"
I'd clap you on the back and say "Right-o!"
I'd ask you the same damn question AGAIN.
The secret, my friend - that no-one talks about and/or MISSES?
Well, it's right there under your very nose.
And it's there on the Isometric and Flexibility Training page, in the second line I think. Or perhaps third. No more than that!
It's the ... "F" word.
No, not the F word the Bozo Schofield so loves.
It's the FEE ... word.
No, not the feet the Bozo so loves either.
It's the FEEL ... word.
No, not the feel the Bozos so loves . Ugh.
It's the ...
... way these workouts and exercises make you ...
Let's face it, bro.
Why do most people workout beyond the obvious (gain muscle, lose fat etc)?
To - FEEL GOOD!
And if you got an exercise program that made you FEEL like a Billion Bucks - I've often written about how I'll take isometrics over SEX anyday, hehe - about how these workouts make you feel like you've got those oh soo skilled Chinese massueses rubbing knots out of your shoulders, and how even with hanky panky on offer, youre inclined to do nothing but sip beer, gaze into space - and RELAX!?
Would you not jump at it?
And that, my friend, is really what YOU want.
And is really the core of why I wrote this great book, in addition to all the other great benefits (and dont get me wrong - those are damn important too - but feeling?)
Nothins beats FEELING, bro.
Feeling is how we navigate through life - fitness - anything.
You feel goo d-like a billion bucks - you ATTRACT the like into YOUR life.
You get into FLOW.
You get and become more spiritual (the Mighty Atom is a perfect example of a super strong person who was ultra and uber spiritual too).
THIS, my friend is the KEY people miss!
And this, my friend, is what it's ALL about.
Jump on the program NOW, and see what the fuss is all about.
PS - Again, here is the link. Given the demand, I might be jacking the price up on this too (for obvious reasons) - so grab this NOW while its at the price it is NOW.
I woke up thinking of the HILL this morning, and the intense LEG workouts I often have on the hill!
Last night, I was looking at my body - in a "non praising" sort of manner if that makes sense, with an ULTRA critical eye, because I haven't hiked in a while, and I often do this check to see "how things are going" without hiking with regard to the lower body.
Amazingly enough, or actually NOT ... my legs are the SAME as before.
My waist has actually gone DOWN a little from what it was, and it wasn't fat before either.
And while I was thinking of the fact that nothing, my friend, can replicate tough leg workouts like HILLS can (the effect) - the fact is they CAN.
Proofs in the pudding!
And I'm not even talking Hindu squats here, which is the very best out there in terms of leg training, and give you even more of a very brutal workout than the HILL every did me!
Sprints are the only thing that come close, but not quite!
Really, those squats are brutal, but I haven't been doing very many as of late at all.
Pull-ups - yes.
Handstand pushups - yes.
Walking - a bit - yes.
Yet, my legs you ask?
Why and how the super leg workout??
Well, my friend, the key lies in ISOMETRICS.
In the book on isometrics, I give you TWO stretches that the Bozos diss as being too simple, and the doers comment upon as and they're RIGHT - "it looks simple, but it's anything BUT if you DO".
One is the "Rahul Mookerjee" style squat I teach.
Well, it's a STRETCH I teach in the same book - NOT taught by anyone else out there.
And that not only works the entire leg area - butt -hamstrings - hips - but also the UPPER body if you do it right.
And that, my friend, more than anything else is responsible for the effect I'm talking about.
As for the title of this email?
Well, I keep getting these inane marketing emails that have tripe subject lines like that. Big companies at that. Makes me wonder! Hmm.
(Of course, its those big Bozo compaies that claim writers should be paid a pittance. HA!).
And companies in general.
"Writing is easy".
I wonder why the idiots don't do it themselves if its so easy.
On that note, perhaps they do, hence the TRIPE.
And I didnt answer that email but do I feel stuck indoors - with or without the plague?
Well, I live in China where it rains all the time for one!
I've never let that stop me - as you can tell from 16 Inspirational Fitness Recollections, Ive never let extreme weather of ANY NATURE stop me.
But lets say theres no hill nearby.
Do I feel stuck?
In the past I used to to a degree, but now?
No way, my friend.
Dont get me wrong.
I walk outside in Nature all the time, but I do it because I WANT to.
Not because I need to!
There is a difference.
That, my friend is the key ...
And yes, I highly recommend walks outdoors for reasons mentioned before.
Ill get more into that at a later date, but for now, grab the two books above. You, the DOER and real trainee will love 'em!
PS - And the Bozos might as well unsubscribe in droves. Thank you!
(Ditto for the people who are "just on the list" for free stuff. Thanks, but NO THANKS).
PS #2 - Lots of folks do NOT know that when creating the Rolls Royce of Fitness - -my FLAGSHIP product, I didnt climb the hill for not just a while, but months upon months. And yet, the results. Trust me, my friend, just trust me !
(I know the doers do already).
