Those old time wrestlers; rippling muscles, huge muscles - functional muscles - not necessarily the ripped to the bone crap many espouse as the gold standard of fitness out there - muscles that actually perform in real life, stamina that does not quit shoulders that dont ache - backs every bit as strong as they look - ox like legs... well, thats a traditional Indian pehelwan for you!
And in Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness I teach you - from the roots as it were, in an unique manner my heritage (a combo of "all over the world" ) and then some allows me to teach you in a way only I can, my friend -but wait.
This is not about the pre-order you should place NOW.
Its about a misconception I've addressed often before, that being that Indian wrestlers do very little pulling - or few pull-ups at all, if any.
Perhaps Matt Furey was partly responsible for this, in his bestselling course Combat Conditioning, and the videos that went with it - he said "you dont see the Hindu wrestlers dont do pull-ups!"
"All over the world, boxers, and wrestlers do nothing but pushups, squats and, and ... bridging".
I still remember the words verbatim, Matt speaking off the cuff like those of us in the flow do so well, yours truly as well.
But many missed what Matt said post this, when he said ...
"I'm not saying they're no good. They ARE good, and you need to figure out a way to incorporate them into your routine, but if you're just starting out - the pushups will build strength through the chest, arms, legs ... even the legs..."
Many miss that part.
And indeed, lore has it that the Gama did 5000 squats and 3000 pushups daily - but very little is written about his pull-ups.
His isometrics, there's a lot been said about it.
But his pulling, not a lot ...
And not every wrassler in India starts his or her day off with a set of pushups or squats, go to any akhara if you can - you might be surprised to see them doing rope climbing - pull-ups - and lots of club work before moving on to pushups and squats.
Make no mistake about it, they do pushups, squats and then some, but thats not the ONLY thing they do, my friend. In fact, there's a LOT of pulling going on in those akharas - it simply would not be wrestling without PULLING!
Anyway, more on this later - a much delayed Rahul is out now.
And remember the pre-order...
PS - A communal dump is also par for the course for many a traditional wrestler. Dont believe me, go there and see for yourself, not saying YOU have to do it, but there is a reason it's done, much like the daily worship before exercise. More on this later, including a lot about their DIET TOO...
Here it is -
First off, for you RETURNING CUSTOMERS - and note, if youve bought from us on Amazon or other sites etc - - then to me, you're a returning customer, but you have to email me here so I can set you up on this site as well - - then you get an automatic 25% FAT - or flat, hehe - discount off your cart provided you have at least three products in the cart and for a change, NO minimum order "value" required - all that is required is three products to be there in your cart, and that is it (and for you to be logged in when you make the purchase).
Second, for everyone - returning customers included, of course - a flat 20% discount assuming your cart value is at least $100 - no product limitations!
So those are two great sales, as you can tell, we value our returning customers and customers in general - very highly!
Lots of you have been waiting to get products, NOW is the time my friend.
Strike while the iron is HOT - this sale is slated to end Jan 1, 2023 - but I doubt I will let it last even that long, so hurry - it ends at the stroke of midnight TODAY i.e. Dec 31, 2022.
And speaking of hot ?
Well, this sale is hot - but THIS is the story behind it!
And thats that.
Get your buying on NOW.
"Old habits die hard", goes the saying ...
Yet do they really if one sticks to what one wants to do, and does the thing regularly?
I dont know why, I've been thinking about this since I woke up - for some odd reason, the thought popped into my mind that a certain point in my life, stepping outside the house in the morning without my morning shower seemed utterly unthinkable - much like going to bed without my (at that time piping hot) shower did.
It just didnt feel right. No why!
(as they say in China, no why, hehe).
Upon arriving in China at the age of 23 ,I was nigh amazed to discover a brand new world out there.
I wont get into the more salacious aspects of this lovely new world 😉 - you guys get the drift.
But, one of the things I found insane at the time was the Chinese took a shower - or bath, whichever - at NIGHT. Never in the mornings.
To them it was as alien as it was to me to NOT take a shower in the mornings.
And no, they didnt all smell terrible - the ones that did never took care of personal hygiene either way - which could happen anywhere in the world. Ugh, that stench you get coming off some people, especially in the winter "its too cold to shower". Pah!
I thought about it.
And it made sense.
The Chinese are particularly fastidious about the nightly "bath" or rinsing or shower - I remember a certain Carol once telling me "you sleep in different bed then!" when I was rebelling against her telling me to go shower (we hadn't done much that required it anyway that day, I think or maybe we had).
That never happened. LOL.
But, think about it, if you bathe at night, unless you sweat buckets for whatever reason while sleeping, it makes sense in an odd manner - you wont be "dirty" upon waking up.
In any case, it's physical exercise that really cleans the way it matters - the body - from the inside out.
Martin Farmer Burns wrote about that in his sage manner in "Lessons of Wrestling and Physical Culture" if I've got the book name right - I suspect not, hehe - "lessons in"- that the average laborer sweating it out all day is likely far, far cleaner than the average Joe preening himself or herself and lathering on fancy lotions or what not while being sedentary all day in the office.
And it's true.
But back to habits.
That habit changed for me ... when? I can't even remember, I think after I started climbing the hill?
No, maybe not then - I think it was after I stopped working for other people at the age of 25?
No, not even then ...
I have no idea when it changed. I honestly cannot remember, but for years now I've been showering at night - but never in the mornings no matter what. Or post workout if it's an especially sweaty one - in summers etc, but otherwise, never in the mornings.
And it seems as natural to me as breathing does this habit.
In the Middle East, the shower is done in the afternoons apparently.
They sleep for two hours in the afternoon, much like in Spain (do they still do it there??)
They also have Thursday and Friday off as weekly holidays, not Sat and Sunday ...
Dr Maxwell Maltz wrote about habits in Pyscho Cybernetics, I believe for most people it takes 22 days to form a new habit and stick with it?
(the subconscious gets the picture?)
I dont know.
For me, it takes but a day once I decide on something.
And while I sometimes find myself reverting back to old habits - some of them die HARD, hehe - for the most part, for yours truly chameleon in every regard, it's as easy to pick up a new habit for me as putting on a new sweatshirt, perhaps.
(and it will be for YOU too if you learn how to do it).
Habits, my friend, are key not just in terms of your personal life.
They come into play in EVERYTHING you do - business included.
Por ejempelo, yours truly thinks years ahead in terms of everything - you guys already know this (or you should, at any rate).
Jeff Bezos was once asked about his stunning results (for Amazon) in 2017 I think.
He sagely replied by saying "it was baked years ago". (or something to that effect, but you get the gist).
Thats how I think too.
And baking means you form a habit, and do the things daily which might not be generating results NOW, but they WILL in the future if you keep at it, have faith, et al - but only if you make repetition of that thing a priority which can only happen if it becomes a HABIT.
Fact, my friend.
Anyway - in terms of fitness, once you get the fitness HABIT locked in, it's nigh impossible to shake it - or kick it.
You can kick nicotine addiction, alcoholism, or drug addiction if you really try. No need for idiotic fancy counseling either, set your mind to it, and just do it (sorry, I know certain people get pissed off at just doing it, but at end of the day YOU have to get down to brass tacks and DO, or it will never ever work long term or at all).
But when you get the natural high from exercising the right way - and doing deep breathing like I advocate, why would you WANT to kick it?
In fact even if you programmed your subconscious to turn you back to "el lardass" - I bet it wouldn't accept the command. Hehe. Neither would your conscious mind want to give it, neither should it.
Moral of the story - FORM the fitness habit.
Start small, build from there.
Rome wasn't built in a day - but built it CAN BE.
Follow along with me in the 0 Excuses Fitness System, and see what is possible for yourself, my friend.
Follow along with me in the videos I put out regularly, and FIND out that what might seem impossible for now may just be possible quicker than you think.
And start forming positive habits today - NOW - in EVERY regard.
The hurdles in most case, if not all, are IMAGINED my friend - no matter how "tough" the predicament might be or whatever the situation is ...
All my life, Ive been called either directly or not (in addition to a lot of the other "beautiful" epithets I've gotten - some deserved, some not - well, I could care less either way) ... "cat with nine lives".
Or maybe a version of Harry houdini, hehe.
Chuck once had this to say about Bozo Schofield.
"No matter what, he always lands on his feet".
Well, I dont know so much about that - he landed flat on his ass without a passport (which Chuck confiscated) on the streets of Jieyang in his underwear, and his only recourse was of course - to beg an older fat lady he'd been "seeing" (she felt sorry for him) for a while (not that they did much, or anything, other than tongue in unmentionables, hehe) ... and then once that was done, get back to scamming others. Proof's in the pudding, but with me, most people know it - but dont say it. Hehe.
Glyn is basically a joker everyone loves to poke fun at, so be it.
But anyway ....
This cat with nine lives, this mysterious manner of manifesting what I want ... all of it isn't so much nine lives or one, as it is activating the subconscious mind correctly, my friend.
All my life, on auto pilot I've done so, without even knowing it (until the last few years when I really started my study of dreams, the subconscious - in great detail).
Maybe I'll write a book on it someday.
Chances are though, if YOU reading this have REALLY wanted something in your life - REALLY - and you kept the desire UP - it eventually happened.
For some, like me, this may mean carrying a tattered piece of paper, unreadable after many machine washes (sorry Glyn, I dont hand wash, hehe) .... or a mere scrap of the A4 sheet of paper it once was.
Thats something I learned years ago - or something I read about, which I wasn't doing, people carrying goals around in their pocket in written format and looking at them every opportunity they got.
Oddly enough, with me, I rarely, if ever looked at it once I put it in my pocket.
Some people may need to look, for me, my subconscious GOT it at the first go.
All our life, my friend, we do small things that propel us to success at something, whether we know it (realize it) or not.
It doesnt have to be what I mentioned above either.
And all our lives, we STOP doing what made us successful, often times in ways we never think about or realize not because we want, but because "thats how the cookie crumbles!"
This applies to students, business men, successful authors, fitness guys, anyone you can think of.
I've been guilty of making this mistake in the past, and I continue to do so (nothing about the paper, I'm talking about life in general).
Again though ...
If you really really want it, you'll find a way.
Trick is to activate the subconscious mind FIRST - and do so the right way. You'll know when you've done it!
And then the "doing" part happens on auto pilot if you really want it.
It is that subconscious mind which solves issue - almost instantly.
That don't mean "everything you want" will come to you or happen NOW.
In many cases, it's been months before "anything happened" in my case - and so it will be for you.
Look, I'll give you an example - amongst many.
Squat 101 was supposed to be out this July, I only got it out a few days ago as of writing this - Nov.
Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness, well, still not fully done.
Same thing for Advanced Plyometrics, I dont even have the pre-sales page up as yet (note to self - DO!).
And thats fine.
It'll happen when it happens, except it ain't about just that, its about when the subconscious deems it the right and most appropriate time to happen.
As Claude Bristol rightly spoke about in the Magic of Believing, you must trust the subconscious fully, or it will not work for you.
SELF DOUBT must never be allowed to creep in no matter what.
The subconscious mind is what solves our problems, and is responsible for our current lot in life - and if you truly WANT something, my friend, it will show you the way - or PUT you on the way to getting it, after which inspired action is the next natural step.
Most people will pooh pooh this and go back to their Youtube videos that scream "affirmations", "I am this, I am that... " which well, if you want to do that be my guest.
Yet another key is mentioned very broadly - and specifically too - in the opening paras of Zero to Hero, which after reading this lots will jump to look at the free preview... Hehe.
Anyway if you truly want it - you'll figure out a way to get it and you will ultimately. It's that simple, applies to anything in life, now fitness wise?
Well, first off - if you're doer and want our products, you'll find a way to get 'em no matter what.
Funnily enough, even if you're a price wanker - this applies.
If you look at the reviews the price wankers leave, the common thread?
There is very little FACT in their reviews. None, actually, and the few mentioned, such as what a certain jackass mentioned in the "Grizzly Power" review - are WRONG (he said I "repeated info", but that is inaccurate, clearly this clown only read the free preview of "Pull-ups - from STUD to SUPER STUD - within WEEKS!").
Look pal, it ain't jump street for me.
I've been around this price wanking block several times, and I can spot losers like you a mile away, hence, the free previews are what they are.
(As a customer here once famously termed these Bozos "those that SQUAWK about your prices" ... hehe)
But even in that review, he left this little gem - "who will pay that much without seeing the contents of the book first".
He WANTS it.
But he's too cheap to pay for it. Hehe.
And in his mind, the way to get it is by being cheap and posting one star reviews that people laugh at essentially...
Which is fine - hey.
The subconscious does what it's told, it does not distinguish between right and wrong, "imbecilic" and smart and so forth ... (hence you see the Bozo doing what he does).
It just does, and it's the greatest power to ever hold sway on this Earth, and even beyond, and thats a fact, Jack, you cannot argue with irrespective of anything else.
Anywhow - look, there's things that I give out for free, there is a place and time and way to do it, but givin the entire house away for free as a lot of jokers want me to do ain't happening.
Video wise, some clown once wrote to me (I think, I can't recall who, but I think it was someone I mentioned here before) - about "showing full workouts".
This joker knows fully well about the five very exhaustive videos in the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
Of course, facts are meant to be ignored eh Hehe.
And yet, he was whining about more "free" stuff - because he wants to see how I achieve the superlative results I do (he said as much in his email).
Not for free, pally. You pay to play, its that simple...
And thats that.
Oops. Just noticed as I twitter this, I did not put in the "Best" part, so I'll do so now - with what I just put on Twitter - aren't Republican women just gorgeous?
Hehe... if you've noticed it !
Real women, such a change from the Nazi feminists, and I love it.
How that applies, I dont know, but thats the thought that popped in, so here it is.
and thats that!
Thats the problem with introducing him to one of my current significant others who also goes by the term "wife", it was, I believe ...
He is NEVER around when he's needed - else they'd make a perfect couple.
Lets see, both worship maids like they're gold on Earth, both LOVE doing - or complaining about - or both - well, I should say the SO doesnt like doing it, but Glyn loves doing it - housework - Glyn especially loves doing the cuck things, like giving her massages for ages, rubbing her feet, and all this other LGBTQ crap that females go on about as "awww so sweet" ... while secretly checking out other alpha males, hehe ...
But he's never around when needed!
Always in ass as it were!
Back in the day, when he was still infesting China, every time he'd move into a new apartment - it would be a running joke in the "Keeping it real" group - because you knew a drunken Glyn rant, replete with throwing "beer bottles off 11th floors of Chinese dorm rooms" (poor China, hehe) was coming.
Not only that, he seemed to attract the worst luck when it came to washing machines - they'd never work, or he'd get the semi automatic kind assigned to him in the monkey jobs he so loved. (well, needed, I should say).
Dont believe me - ask any of the dudes in that group - or a certain Josie, or any other chick, hehe.
They'll all happily affirm to Bozo's lunacy, whether or not they agree with me on other matters, or anything at all, is a different tale. Hehe.
"The Washing machine doesnt work!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"Damn thing wont work!"
"I can't wash my clothes!"
The Bozo would rant about this sort of thing forever - all night long if you can believe that while swigging cheap roadside Chinese liqor and god only knows what else.
But today, as I read this - and why do I bring this up, well, it perfectly - or it gives you a nigh perfect example of the "cucked male" I spoke about in my last email to you - as I read this on Twitter from no-one in particular...
I am dating a nerd uncle. Partner woke up at 8am to do extensive research on our washing machine to make it more “efficient”???IS NOW WATCHING YOUTUBE VIDEOS TO ENSURE HE ISNT MISSING OUT ON FEATURES WHILE I WAIT FOR HIM TO MAKE BREAKFAST ugh
its been 2 hours... and he is still doing this...apparently we have a weird washing machine as it top load machine with a detergent dispenser????
"Princess, you need a certain Glyn Schofield (aka #bozoschofield) by your side", I went. "He wouldn't just look at the machine for ages, he'd live in IT - and more". Hehe.
But really, think about it.
This c*** should be PRAISING the man, you'd think.
The ideal man, you'd say?
Cooks, cleans, provides, even wakes up at 8 to fix the washing machine - and make it more efficient, whatever that shit means while her lazy ass does exactly F all ... I mean, dude even makes breakfast, doing both the so called manly and womanly things...
And yet. she's complaining about it on Twitter, talking to other men, happily taking the husband's money ...
And crowning glory, or not, the c**** is basically "looking on Youtube to see how else she can supervise him".
Hmm, let's see, the chickie knows nothing about it herself, yet wants to supervise him.
I see this all around me daily, women - even Nazi feminist ones that think they have control, and then end up, both ironically and paradoxically messing it all up anyways.
Like I've told my own wife when she badgers me about things I "ought to be doing" - "dont supervise me hun, I dont need it, if you do, it aint getting done".
She seems to have learnt - sort of. Do they ever?
Height of lunacy I'd think though in that above situation.
And he's happy about it. Hehe.
Much like Venus's husband was when she literally asked him to DRIVE me to my apartment for ... I better not go there.
Ugh. Sure, it was good for ME, but thats not the point I'm trying to make here, it aint about me, its about being "pussy whipped to an extreme" as the term goes, if I might use it...
That sort of delirium is what men in general need to wake up from, once they do, if they ever do, this lunacy will end almost instantly.
Women need to be explained - in practical terms, as I just asked my daughter to write the word "practical" - hehe - that you cannot have your cake and eat it too.
And it's true...
Unnatural routines and practices dont last, though they might seem to for years.
And thats that.
No prizes for guessing which part of the spectrum I'm on, I've always BEEN on it ... Hehe.
Like I've always said - get fit - the rest will follow.
And follow the best damn fitness system in order to do so - the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
I must confess, my friend, while I've been MGTOW for years now - living the philosophy damn near all my adult life without even knowing it existed (the terminology) - and then when I did, I nodded my head upon reading the terms ie. "these guys got it SPOT ON!"...
Brings to mind what a customer once said "I used to think MGTOW guys were idiots, now I see they're the smart ones".
This is a long comment condensed down to the gist - and the "now" took him several years, probably more than a decade - to figure out.
I've had it figured out since ... ah, but lets not make this about me. Hehe.
MGTOW guys have this term for an ideal woman which I cannot put my finger upon, on the tip of my tongue, starts with "NO ... "I believe?
I dont know, correct me if I'm wrong.
But it's essentially a term for "finding the diamond in the rough" - the ONE woman that is different.
As Marc the African Silverback Gorilla and I used to discuss all the time over pizza - and as every MGTOW guy does -
"Everyone thinks their woman is the ideal one, she's "different""!
My response to this sort of thing would be to laugh and say "no she ain't either".
Marc would be more logical in his response "relentlessly logical" as his wont is, hehe (which I love - so am I - but I mix emotion into things often, which isn't necessarily bad either if done at the right time and right/OPPORTUNE place) - but that is what his response would boil down to as well.
And every time I see these guys - a lot of guys - ostensibly "fat and happy" with a chick that is either fat herself, or not - I'm talking more the guys here, since MGTOW is a GUY thing ...I shake my head inwardly.
Dont get me wrong, my friend.
Nothing wrong with being happy - or thinking you are.
But what I see when I see a lot of these guys, and its a vibe that cannot be mistaken - #1 "cuck" (not necessarily in the sexual sense either).
And #2, more importantly, and this really hits home - "I've been there".
And then what these guys usually are in real life - abject failures at what they claim to do, rejects for the most part socially - usually extremely fat and unfit (remember the bit about if you truly want to be a machine - you cannot do it when you're in a relationship, or that sort of relationship - look at history, look at the Indian wrestlers, listen to ole Mickey yell about "women weaken legs" - they were not just whistling Dixie out their asses, my friend) ...
.. usually with little money, or a desk job with no potential for advancement, usually with a ton of unfulfiled dreams and aspirations that at their current rate they would never fulfil - and much more.
I've been there - multiple times, so I know - and thats why I feel bad for these guys - I wish I could help.
But you can tell when someone wants help, and trying to shove help down someone's throat never worked - it worsens matters "you cannot make that horse drink" - so I leave it be.
Then I think about myself.
And the myth of the ideal woman - look, I'll be flat out honest.
She doesn't exist, my friend.
And if she does, chances are excellent or second to none FINANCES - the man's - play a huge role in it i.e. he gives her money out the ass and then some.
Or, she's younger - he's older - and already a success - and possibly divorced once or more.
Cut it any way you like - this is coming from a guy whose never even had to "pay for it" for the most part - women do everything for a reason, and they are cool and calculating about it to an extreme - if you LET THEM.
Of course, women aren't near as rational as men are - or should be - and neither can they be, they are not programmed that way.
And like they said in the Bourne Supremacy "nothing is random" - they do it all, including monkey branching - for a reason.
And for a guy who talks to so many women that openly cheat on husbands that PROVIDE for them, give them all they want - I'm telling you, this comes from the heart.
Usually it takes guys years and years of pain - which they dont even know they're inflicting upon themselves to figure this out.
Once they do though - they're instant converts to the MGTOW way of life.
My question just is, think about all this logically NOW - and save yourself the hassle - and MAKE something of yourself, my friend.
(to the "cucked" guys this that is).
Unfortunately they wont, but the facts are this - the really fit guys - supremely strong - supreme successes - and so forth - are all neither mongamous nor are they "happily married" - that fact by itself should tell you a lot.
I dont know when men in general will realize that the time for focusing on YOU, my friend is long past - you need to start doing it NOW.
Fitness wise, start getting into the best shape of your life - by following the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
And you'll see how quickly the rest falls into place once you start getting into shape - and THINKING clearly - and rationally - and once you have other "choices" at hand like so many women always "seem to" (hint - they really dont if you think about it).
And thats that.
PS - Logically speaking, if you can find any fault with what I said, do write back and let me know, but if you whine in an illogical manner about hurting feelings, then you'll go straight to spam or block.
I swear - they're enough to drive anyone batshit insane, if they weren't already. Hehe.
Anyway, I was recently talking to my visa agent about some business going wrong - somewhat, at least and clarifying certain things, and the way he yelled back to me without meaning to spoke tomes.
"Forget how it is in China!" hollered this normally calm dude.
Now, for reference, all I was doing was pointing out a FACT about China, which he wasn't getting - but claimed he did.
I mean, he got the fact, but he wasn't getting my import w.r.t the visa deal "gone wrong" ...
(and when I point out facts I'm dually blunt about it, it HITS HOME HARD - and it hurts - he's said it before too, "my words are hurtful".
But facts remain facts though...)
I wont get into the specifics here, but turns out he's right - on one front, and I'm right on most, but that one front is the one that matters, so I couldn't really fault him - although he really should have told me before I embarked on the deal ... ah, but that isn't the point of me writing this.
I was working out when he showed up, sensibly not at the house, but at the gate.
I dont want the lunacy that resides within to be in any way involved with my stuff, of course, if anyone comes for me when I'm here (as in comes to meet me, even slightly) all hell seems to break loose.
Apparently one alpha male is all they can very reluctantly "Stand".
Women, I was telling the dude.
Trust me, two women together- it just wont work!
He interrupted me.
"sir, let me tell you in our language", he went.
Ok, please do ...
"Do Talware ek ghar me nahi tik sakti!"
i.e. "Two swords cannot co-exist in one house".
The very statement - while completely true, shows you how illogical females are in general, and how pointless it is to reason with them on anything, especially the Nazi feminist ones.
I mean, two swords can be used to sharpen each other and go after the real enemy - which they ostensibly do, but behind the scenes, they're just dulling each other and getting exactly F all for it.
Most guys, the way they deal with it - is either accept it or "dont stay at home during the day".
"You seem to be someone thats figured out how to live life on his own terms!"
I hear a past customer's words so clearly. He's right too...
Not only that, I've figured out - and DO - benefit from the madness big time even when it does not seem like it.
So will you if you follow the tips in my book on not just combating, but PROFITING from Nazi feminists at the highest level possible.
This book applies to business as well - dont believe me, read point #26, and apply to anyone - Bozos, phat phockers getting their panties in a twist about being called fat, and trolls in general.
Along with that, apply what I teach you in Profit Troll - yet to come- and trust me, you'll welcome both the categories above - as I do.
For the best damn fitness system ever go here - the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
PS - And 250 pushups, 350 club swings, and 70 pull-ups later, I'm qualified to tell you this too - the sheer confidence that comes from having a body in shape - mere words dont and can't do justice to it.
And the lack of confidence spewing from Bozos not in shape, same thing.
A long time ago I remember three incidents, one a case of road rage (though I was right) involving me - two a case of ... well, psuedo road rage - again involving me, and I was ... well, if you were look at local circumstances, "sort of right, and sort of wrong" - and three, WAY back in the day, a dude once said my ex's "legs were beautiful" (albeit not in front of me). (and she complained about it to me instantly, though he wasn't really being obnoxious, just ... weird).
Case #1, I still remember the other guy yelling at me, and my own lack of confidence fighting back ... case #2, ditto.
Case #3, well, I'd probably just laugh now and say "thats my bitch" or something ... I dont know, speak big black dude's language maybe? LOL.
We've all had these cases where we've been humbled (well, case #3 I guess is a compliment the way it was said, but the first two, I felt sort of ... I dont know, I felt I couldn't whip the other guys ass, period).
Case numero one and two wouldn't have a set of teeth left, and probably not a leg either. Hehe. And I mean that.
Number three who knows.
And really, that confidence, that SWAGGER that comes from being in shape, and it all starts from the CORE, my friend - core fitness.
Get a truly corrugated core, you'll know what I mean when you will feel like "you can knock down buildings" as you walk.
Truly, nothing substitutes core fitness my friend ...
Reminds me of Van Damme's Bloodsport, where he advises a huge dude (friend of his) to go for the far more skilled Chong Li's gut - because he's weak there.
You wouldnt know it by looking at it, but the way someone moves, reacts, you can tell - very easily.
And, Van Damme himself fighting a bear of a man off whom kicks just bounce off ... the way he finally betters him, dropping down into the splits, and smacking him one ... to the GUT.
The solar plexus region, I'd probably never use that sort of thing in a fight because it can cripple, maim, or worse. (admittedly I've had practice doing it, but still!).
But its all about the core, my friend, a weak core = lack of true confidence, and it will show no matter how much you "bulk up" in other areas.
OK, enough for now.
I gotta write that long overdue book sometime ... Book #6 or perhaps more on the pending list, there are so many now I have literally lost track.
Maybe I need to hire Alexa to keep up. Hhee.
"From 120 - 60 kgs, from ZERO TO HERO ... " - went my FIRST - and never published, never seen the day of light under that name book - most of it, or a lot of it subsequently got released as a very good next book "Zero to Hero!".
It's definitely a book all of you should have on bookshelf, even if you aren't specifically looking for advice on success or motivation in general, there is so much more to the book than that.
Anyway - I've never been huge on numbers unless it comes to results or sales.
I believe I still dont know my exact height - somewhere around 5'9" is all I know, when the Chinese ask me
I also know I look like a giraffe with my "long lissome legs" as Carol once said. Hehe (minus the lissome part - I hadn't taught her that word as yet. She was still getting to terms with "plump", hehe. Hey, Carol. That plump look SUITS you - you look so damn cute that way!).
I still remember her picking up on the "Hey", "Hey Michael", she'd often say slapping my at the time fat thigh when I was not stretching right. Hehe. Memories!
More fitness related memories here, anyway, I'm going off track again - or am I?
At the end of the day what do we really have?
When we go?
Smiles and cries, if you're an Alonzo Harris fan.
Or, to me, memories.
I'll always remember what Carol said during that once in a lifetime adventure that just happened - years later, I still can't believe it, but happen it did! ...
"We may or may not be together in the future, but these memories will last, good memories!'
True that, memories last a lifetime if you let 'em, both good or bad, and they are often the catalyst for occurences of either nature much later on in life when you would never "expect" it.
Dont expect every experience to be a blockbuster tho, I've done made that mistake in the past. You hit a home run once, maybe twice, but even that home run, ask any champ player, duplicating is often nigh impossible.
Much like you can't ape my writing and hope to succeed, or my style as I said yesterday (and as so many idiots continue to do).
OK, back to the weighing scale.
Once it was when I was literally ... I believe 117 kgs. Hehe. Fat as fuck according to me (but I still did pull-ups, as evidenced from the cover of Pull-ups - from DUD to STUD within a matter of weeks! which doesnt just show me getting my chin over the bar - it shows me doing a mid point pull-up, one of the toughest to do for most people!) and handstand pushups, and jumping rope ...
I dont mention any of that to brag or tom tom, I Specifically promote my fat pictures - and why? To inspire YOU, to show you what is possible, but it only is if you're honest and not a believer in the extremely lame excuse of "I'm big, but not fat" - when you are - or "we all come in different sizes and shapes" - when fact is, no matter what you're size wherever, hehe - you're FAT, period. The mirror dont lie.
Neither do the scales, my friend.
True, BMI's etc often aren't accurate but thats only if you're super fit - or someone like maybe Herschel Walker (super fit x 100).
For the average Shomoe on the couch chugging a six pack a night - whether they admit it or not - the scales usually dont lie.
Anyway - second time I'll never forget, in China.
Weight of 65. Resting pulse rate of like 40. That was when I had an even more intense workout routine - https://0excusesfitness.com/advanced-hill-training details it ALL.
That resting pulse rate was what I really enjoyed!
I should actually say three times.
A few days ago I weighed myself again.
And bingo at the age of almost 42, I'm at 65 again. Hehe.
I think it was only last year that I was called both skinny and "fat". Hehe.
Fat as in, "you look fat" - and a DOER said it, and I took it very seriously indeed.
Maybe I did look sort of out of shape then, and I've mentioned this doer by name, I've written about how he predicted I'd be in my best shape overall in 2022, and with every passing day that prediction holds truer. Hehe.
Know what the big deal is, how this applies to you?
I dont have a crazy strict diet now like I did in China (at the time by chance, not choice).
While I dont chug beer every night, I'll drink every so often. Vodka, beer, the lot.
I sit at the 'puter almost all damn day.
NONE of my workouts take more than 15 minutes at a go IF even that.
And yet, I can run up flights of stairs effortlessly, people say I look around 26 years old - still - and more.
I FEEL that way too.
THAT, my friend, are the cumulative benefits of hard training your entire life damn near and still counting- or starting - and going strong, or all of it.
And THAT, if anything shows you the sheer value my fitness programs deliver, the results they can deliver you, and will - not just fitness wise, and life.
I'd be wrong to say you're a fool if all of this doesnt make you jump and get 0 Excuses Fitness NOW (those that haven't, there's still a lot of you on the fence).
But damn close, my friend, damn close...
And thats that.
PS - Take that above bit as constructive suggestions/feedback, not so much criticism as some people love to whine about...
That alone will determine if you're a doer or not!
I believe it was Mao, not exactly one of my "favorite" politicians to say the least (Deng Xiaoping I've always maintained is really the man responsible for China's meteoric rise to what it is today "Grandfather Deng" as they rightly call him" ... but a lot of what he said actually made sense from a certain angle.
Like this -
"Power flows from the barrel of a gun".
I've no idea if Mao is the one that invented that saying, or if he got it from elsewhere, but if you think about it, it's true - and a quick look around what is going on in the world TODAY proves it.
Think about it, you can talk all you like, but end of the day, it's heavy duty firepower and artillery that really SPEAKS - the loudest, and matters the most.
It doesn't necessarily have to be all out war either.
Look at the boxing ring.
Mike Tyson once so eloquently said it.
"You can have all the plans in the world - until you get punched in the mouth".
That of course is another testament to this.
Now I've always believed the mind is the best weapon, but even then - gotta admit.
When you're staring down the barrel of that gun, and you dont know how to disarm the other person -well, 'nuff said.
But take "gun" away - and replace it away with physical fitness - that is really what I want to talk about NOW.
Look at all these people that troll women and children for one, attacking them from behind the relative safety of their computer screens.
One reason Glyn Bozo, "king" of all trolls has never dared to say any of his rubbish to my face is because he wouldn't have a face - or any teeth, hehe - left after / if he said it.
Come to think, he'd probably end up crippled for life too.
These aren't mere words, they're FACT.
Chuck once made the comment about "you'd probably have him hanging from a tree" - and then of course, Marc, the African Silverback Gorilla in general about what I'd do to trolls and their ilk - and people attacking me in general - "you'd tear 'em apart".
And I would.
Now, it could be either verbally or physically, but fact is this.
Being physically fit, being lean, mean, QUICK AND AGILE on your feet - having the ability to launch yourself up on your tip toes and aim kicks out of nowhere - knowing that your punches have solid "SMACK" behind them - knowing, that in general, you have the fittest core ever (believe me, when you have a fit core, you wont just know it, you'll FEEL it, and that confidence will nigh show in every aspect of your life!) ...
... When you can do what martial artists often do, get into the splits (advanced verson) and then challenge each other to take punches as hard as they can to take their CORES - midsections basically where all the vital organs are and so forth.
End of the day, when you get to those levels of fitness is when you'll really understand the "emotion" behind the words if I might say so.
You'll truly understand the meaning of the word smackdown when you can take - and then deliver x 10 back - one yourself.
It cannot be taught.
You have to experience it yourself.
My programs, my friend, GET you to that level.
Because lets face it, end of the day, man to man, player to player, nikka to nikka - DO you GOT IT?
CAN you back your SMACK up?
Most "modern day" (I use quotes for a reason) men or the sorry excuse for men most wimpy modern day men have turned into "metrosexual and other nonsense" cannot.
And that, really is the import of this entire email.
Then progress on to Pushup Central, and more ...
And you'll truly understand what the expression "kick ass while taking NAMES" (not mine btw) means along the way...
Last night, as I went to bed I had this thought "my daughter will be off from school tomorrow".
Oddly enough, I had no inkling of how this was going to happen, I just knew it would, and I repeated it to myself a couple of times.
You wouldn't know it from the wife yelling at her to go to bed and what not (in a good manner apparently).
Anyway, this morning I was notified that "school was off for her for not just a day, but a week or so".
(so much for those that think visualization does not work. hehe).
The Delhi rains, I thought, it's turned into Cherrapunji apparently in that part of India, actually, much like it is in Southern China where it rains incessantly for weeks without a break (but the Chinese infrastructure is at least somewhat better equipped to handle it - Delhi's is NOT!).
Just nasty it's become over in Delhi, anyway, I thought that was the reason, everything flooded, nothing working, all unseasonal as it were...
But it wasnt because of that. School's apparently going on, now my daughter as of late has picked up some form of "hand foot and mouth disease".
I hadn't even heard of this, I had to Google it. Nothing serious apparently, you dont even need a visit to the doc for it, but it's communicable - so therefore when my wife told the school, they told her no problem, we'll do online classes for a week.
Of course, the grin on the daughter's face which she tried to hide from Mommy, hehe - said it all.
I pinched her cheek.
"Where's the lesson in this", I asked.
She said she didnt know.
"Sometimes, bad things happen in order for good to happen later".
You had this infection I said. It wasn't your fault. And now, you have a week off from school basically... (online classes are a joke, even more so than the school is itself as I've said before).
Now, it wasn't her fault.
Her cousin was visiting, and "Granny" apparently saw fit to let her play with the cousin - without telling anyone the cousin had this same disease, and still has.
What so called adults think, and how they do it - mystery!
My wife's mom (when my wife was young) once made her "sit" with her elder sister who had measles of all things, now of course, the wife got it too.
"She didnt care about me, so she did it", went the wife went she told me about it.
She's a middle child, three kids, of course, the Indian preference for a boy (the youngest) and the elder sister, well, she was sandwiched in between and ... but still , care or not, thats either downright cruel or stupid.
Parents - mothers especially - can be that way, I still remember a girl I knew "Emily" - when she was six, her mom took her to a room to unwrap Santa's presents, and what did she get?
A box of coals.
You've been BAD, went the mom!
Thats just downright fuckin cruel, I think ..
So much for women being the kinder sex, the "caring" bunch and so forth?
Anyway ...... as I sit here not fully recovered from a nasty stomach bug - or extreme tiredness, or perhaps the strange weather, or perhaps a combo of all of it, I'm wondering if this is good in that if this is indeed the break my body needed.
For a long time, I've been pushing myself as I always do, hitting it hard. HAMMERING it, actually!
Maybe this is indeed the break I need.
But as adults, the above saying holds true.
You sometimes have to go through what you might consider painful, or uncomfortable, or even downright hell in order to get to where you want to be, friend.
Good things await, but like "you have to GIVE first before you recieve", same thing here.
Start a biz, go through tough times, very tough times - but thats all good if you can keep the end goal in mind.
Fitness wise, same damned thing.
Waking up early in the morning in the rain, cold, to do road work when no-one else is, keeping Muhammad Ali's words in mind ... none of it is "fun".
Or even something you want to do.
I sure didnt "want" to climb the hill six times a day. Hehe.
But I did.
That habit formed, then it stuck.
And good, glorious things happened later...
Thats how life works, thats how anything works.
Sometimes, the bad, a lot of it has to happen first before the good "comes to pass".
And looking around you, at the world today, thats something nigh everyone needs to hear, and it's TRUE.
Anyway ... thats the advice for now.
PS - Whoa! Forgot to say, doing those pushups and squats daily, getting those numbers in no matter what when no-one else is, when it's HARD for you - tough for you - all of that is not easy, not fun, not "nice". None of the above.
But it has to be done.
The 10 Commandments of Physical Success (life too) in the 0 Excuses Fitness System are well worth a read my friend.
Grab this STELLAR, super, SUPERB, package now if you have not already.
The more I read about the "abuse case" going on with him and Jolie (I've never been a Pitt fan by the way - watched a couple of flicks, but I've always thought he was way overrated, unlike my sister who can't get enough of him - I'd rather someone like Mel Gibson!) ... the more I shake my head, and ...
In a lot of these cases, of course, and especially these days women will exaggerate what really happened, and people will believe her "because she is a woman".
But reading this (and I ain't a YAHOO fan either, trust me, with their BS news for the most part) ... https://news.yahoo.com/brad-pitt-keep-responses-abuse-014431333.html
I dont know, to me the claims against him have that ring of truth, that element of believability, no I cannot prove it, but some things have to be felt.
Angelina Jolie to me, I dont know, wasn't ever a fan of her either (though of course, her "Assets", hehe, they were lovely!) ... I'd rather maybe someone like Sharon Stone in her heyday. Or something like that, but to me if those things are really true especially w.r.t the abuse being dished out to the kids, Pitt is a pussy - period.
And I mean that.
Reminds me of women in general, they love to lash out when on top, when the shoe is on the other foot, they turn the other cheek and whimper.
But anyway - more of a fool you ask?
Well, Google it, and you'll see he once fooled around with none other than Mike Tyson's woman (one of them, at least, hhe) - in his house at that if I've got it right. I dont have a link, but Google is your friend. Dont be lazy, friend.
And to even do something like that?
Dont get me wrong, cuckolded husbands and fooling around with Sophia's and such, yours truly is no stranger to that, but if you're stupid enough to fuck around with someone like Mike Tyson's woman, then "beg for mercy" when he shows up (now that was practical. Hehe) - and not expect all hell to break loose, then you're a fool, period.
I mean, whoever in their mind would think of doing that to a man like Tyson.
And if you've got balls - or more accurately an ego that big, then to turn around and beg for mercy - just pathetic.
I Dont know much about the case other than that, nor do I care to, but I cannot stand people that are violent against kids. Heaven knows I've had plenty of that in my childhoold.
Mkaes me MAD - simple.
Back to Iron Mike?
If I had to sum him up in one word even NOW?
And thats that.
Awesome experience as always, even though the delivery guy labeled me as the security guard, but thats OK-hehe. I dont mind! I was wearing my sleeveless "cut off", so I get it, hehe. Looking kinda menacing. !
cheers guys, y'all made my Saturday already, hehe.
Thought I'd start this one off with a quote - what I just sent Amazon.
Although the term "security guard" probably evokes images of menacing burly men with automatic weapons in some parts of the world, in others - like India, and china for one - it's merely "mortals" - sometimes just carrying nothing but a huge stick - and often times pot bellied or even obese from sitting around all day.
The very guards supposed to guard your property probably couldn't run an inch to save their own lives if they had to, in most cases they ain't armed either. Hehe.
But anyway, this morning I ordered two sweatshirts off Amazon, received them with usual gorilla grunt of "appreciate it" - and then got the following message on my phone.
"Delivered to security guard".
That made me smile. I Dont know if he thought I was the guard - I doubt it, I was in my house - or apartment, what have you - so probably a basic error on his part, which is completely fine and alright, but maybe he did!
I was wearing my sleeveless cut off - with arms out, in all their vascular glory, not that I give two shits about any of that.
But there was a lot of physical stuff going on yesterday, so the vibe permeates!
Only a 100 squats - but I did some sprinting outdoors while my daughter was learning how to ride a bike - now this, my friend, my wife has apparently been trying to teach her for donkey's years, it didnt work, the bikes she bought were gathering dust - go figure - and she had one of her good ideas the other day "father and daughter riding together" - and presto - within the space of two hours, my daughter can now ... CYCLE!
A skill she should have done learned years ago.
She knows a bit, but I regret not being able to get in the pool with her as I did years ago, I could really teach her some good stuff.
All of which I picked up myself, including cycling, scrapes and all, but anyway the little girl's smile is back.
She's a CHAMP.
If you let her be!
Precious few idiots do ...
Anyway, that led to a lot of running and then almost - Bourne style - SPRINTS!
Almost, not nearly as quick or for as long, but getting there. Try doing what ole Mickey did in Rocky III as a workout for Rocky, i.e. tie a cycle to your back and run while he's on the bike behind you - NOT pedaling, and do NOT let him fall off.
If you dont want to do that, then tie a stone around your neck and do squats like the ancient Indian wrestlers, and even Till THIS DAY! - do.
Not quite so extreme?
Well, try sprinting alongside or in front of a bike while someone rides full tilt, see how long you can keep it.
Or, do what I did later, chop up thick pipes meant for carrying GAS - with a somewhat blunt knife.
Talk about a grip and forearm workout, those veins were PULSATING. (not even by the end of it).
Anyway, all lots of fun, capped off by being Mr Security Guard as well, yet another name to add to that burgeoning list!
Now, where does all of this lead?
Of course, to a sale - and to promote a product which will have YOU feeling like nothing else can.
Advanced Hill Training, my friend, shows you the proper way to walk - run - and sprint - and get in super shape, the best shape of your life - within 2 minutes flat if you can last a quarter of that time (dont even go "there". hehe).
but it's true, a lot of guys cant...
But anyway, I'm talking sprints!
And this is a product a lot of you have not got as yet, yet need to pick up NOW.
ALong with that, for workouts that will have you building muscle like nothing else you've ever done before - Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness with all it's brutal, old school and unconventional (they all go together) workouts - coupled with the MODERN (i.e. I dont actually require you to dig pits or do squats with heavy circular stones around your ole neck as they do in akharas till today) is the TICKET.
And thats that - remember as always though to build a proper BASE and start off with the much vaunted, one and only 0 Excuses Fitness System.
Life's a trip eh.
Thats some trippy ass shit, Holmes!
aka Training Day, that movie I'll never stop watching, one that to me is a classic, albeit not spoken about a lot. (but most people know it!).
Alonzo, that whole movie - just - thats by far, to me Denzel's best movie!
I still remember we had a choice between watching "Snow Dogs" and "Training Day" when it first came out, with the girlfriend, pizza and beer galore, weekend off from work in NY - and we were discussing which one to watch first.
No prizes for guessing which one I chose (those were the "Blockbuster Video" days - anyone remember that chain? Hehe).
She wasn't too happy about it.
"You'll just fall asleep later and wont watch Snow Dogs with me!"
And I dont believe we ever did watch it. Hehe. What she said was true. It happened, next day - I dont know, we went somewhere, then work, then we had to drop the videos off - another classic case of people getting what they dont really have any plans on REALLY following through on. Believe me, if she really wanted to watch that movie, she'd have found a way. Hehe.
It was more about the romance...
Anyway, where am I going with this - ah yes, technology.
From Blockbuster video to DVD players, to computer DVD players, to ... well, Wifi, broadband dumbphones, and now back to the good ole days for many people.
Reminds me of what my Dad once said about the Middle East.
"They rode in on camels, they drive in swanky cars, they'll ride OUT on camels too".
They aint the only ones, eh. Hehe.
I just read Nasa has successfully crashed a "vending machine size spacecraft" into an asteroid the size of a football field.
To stop it from destroying the Earth (or others like it).
Which is great - as we destroy the Earth ourselves here, or as humans we seem to be doing a good job of destroying planet Earth better than any asteroid ever could - while they focus on the tech to protect us from the other threats which pale in comparison to the REAL threats facing us NOW.
The irony of it all ...
Anyway, fitness wise?
Technology is something I adopt - early.
I was amongst the first to pioneer digital only downloads on the website, when everyone told me to sell physical books.
dont get me wrong here.
I sell physical books too.
And for a good reason, those that buy those are the old fashioned guys - my type of guys.
But digital, well, thats the trend, I saw it coming a long time ago, so might as well jump on the bandwagon eh - and I was proved right on that as well.
I believe in giving you ALL options - so we even have hardcover on the site for most of our products.
And, although the initial download of the 0 Excuses Fitness System was over 2GB in size, since most will play it on the dumbphone, I made it dumbphone compatible and reduced file size etc to the very manageable on most broadband/4G connections 10-12 min download, if even that (that will go down in the future even more as we ramp up hardware even more behind the scenes).
I never once sold physical DVD's though, and I doubt I EVER will - despite some of my hardcore customers burning the material to THEIR own DVD's. And hey, gotta love old school there too my friend!
Some things though, I'll always be old fashioned, because old fashioned and playing the long game (right) - well, you can never go wrong in terms of those two.
And fitness wise, life wise, you'll always find me to be old school, always - no exceptions.
And that, I suppose is that.
Of all the "butt hurt" comments - this one caused another chuckle.
On Twitter, some dame asked about "why do guys like chubby girls".
We all know what she meant by that.
And so forth.
Women, when they're slim they're too slim, when they're chubby they're not happy with it, and so forth. But this isn't about that, this is about my reply.
As some of you no doubt know women "claim" to love something to "hold on to".
Reality is this - friend, what women really want in that area? Isnt a large wanker or everything people talk about, it's strong arms, back and a TONED midsection with very little no fat, especially around the lower abs.
This goes for whether she "loves you or not".
But if she "loves you" (translate - if she's getting a lot of money, hehe) - she'll be more than happy to hold on to that pudge wudge around your midsection and say "more to hold on to".
Truth is, nah, it aint just about money either, sometimes ... well, with yours truly, I've had that happen a lot with girls that paid my way (not that I asked, but they insisted, how can a dude refuse when it's offered that nicely, hehe) on most things ...
But I always knew I was FAT (when I was).
Anyway, I replied in brief (NO puns) to the girl explaining all this.
Some butt hurt dude showed up saying this -
"chubby is not fat so not getting your point!!!!!!!!!!!"
Like dude, yeah, "plump" as a certain very happy Carol once referred to herself as isn't technically fat either is it?
Phat isn't either.
Gargantuan isn't technically fat either, is it - or is lard ass?
I mean, the extent to which people go to to be either politically correct, or butt hurt, or a combo there in never ceases to boggle the mind does it.
Look, if you're fat you're fat, bottom line, aint no two ways around it pally.
So says the hombre that ALWAYS delivers.
And to get your delivery of the fitness system that resolves any fat, pudge or "chub" issues you might have nigh quick, get the 0 Excuses Fitness System right NOW.
And thats that.
