Well, lots of updates that I ain't mentioned here, or written about, but I Really must!
And I'm doing that now.
And updates that despite a wonky and supposedly almost brand new Asus constantly crashing in the most inane manner possible - and the most annoying manners (it seems the computer has a plan to act up - and again, you dont want to know HOW) in the most annoying manners possible every time I DO something on it - I got DONE.
And if there is one company to avoid, it's Asus.
Admittedly Winblows is doing all it can to squeeze money out of it's customers by ruining hard disks etc so more people "buy a new laptop". The number of laptops around me crashing are legion. Wonder when the same thing will happen to phones, but I hope it doesn't!
Probably will, though.
So it might not be Asus alone - but actually, it IS for a large part.
I bought this damn thing at the "fag end" of 2018.
And it started acting up the way it is in 2019.
Of course, taking anything to a warranty center is utterly useless as what matters is never covered, and "these crashes" aren't covered either.
Typical wishy washy China made crap with "all glitter and no gold".
I've been a Toshiba customer for over two decades, and cannot recommend them enough.
They weren't selling online though for whatever reason when I bought this Asus - on the recommendation of a so called friend and equally wishy washy guy who did biz with me in the past, later got pissed off at me calling the Chinese out for what they are (after they spread the damned plague) - and deleted me etc.
And the laptop he recommended was equally wishy washy it seems.
Anyway, that bit aside, the updates, ah, but Amazon first - and again, thats a company as you know I VERY highly recommened, and I dont recommend many!
You on this list might wonder why I bring up customers from there here.
Well, in the past I used to write to them directly using the "reply" button which Amazon has removed NOW. (for a few months).
So thats one reason, but the main reason is - well - Amazon is a great place to buy and sell books.
And other items.
And lots of people have "Amazon as their jam", and thats great - I sure don't got an issue with it!
And of course, the Bozos leave inane reviews there we can all laugh at, hehe.
But remember, and this starts the update portion for 0 Excuses Fitness (the site).
One, lot of you have asked me about the 20% off discount I give to ALL customers on the site.
I can't do that on Amazon, as their system doesn't allow discounts (probably because Amazon prices are the most competitive out there anyway).
But I CAN do that on my site. And DO. (for the first purchase).
And here's the point.
PAPERBACKS are available on the site, and YES, if you order paperbacks on my site, they WILL be delivered via Amazon.
So it's like you order from Amazon, except you get the books at an additional 20% off (again, just the first purchase).
Some of you know this, some don't so I figured I'd tell you.
Next, we're now accepting - and this is BIG - credit cards DIRECTLY on the site.
In the past what I did was use Paypal, or I'd have invoices sent out and folks would then use their cards or whatever to pay the invoice.
Now, you can do that DIRECTLY on the site ...
And of course, the Bitcoin option is there on the site for those of you that want it.
Now, back to reviews.
As of late - a day or so ago, I've implemented a system where in you (with your purchase) will get a LINK via which you can REVIEW the product.
And, it will be shown on the site as well (after the reviews are posted).
So, thats another neat little thing - in the past, you guys emailed me your reviews, or put it on Amazon.
Both those ways are fine for you that is "old fashioned" - hey, I get it. I am too!
Can't beat the "hold" of a paperback. Despite my push on digital, despite everything being done digitally on my site since it's inception, nothiing beats paperbacks for some people - many people - and - I get it - and agree!
And let's see ...
In the future, I'll be adding in "wish lists" and a lot of other stuff to the site too. Stay tuned!
And, if you're interested in a COLLECTOR's ITEMS - the FIRST edition - paperback of Fast and Furious Fitness - well -you'll see the option on the site - so get it NOW, because I only have like 8 of them left or so. Yes, you can still get 'em from Amazon, but they won't be the same collector's item with the same cover etc this book has - so if you're one of the many that is interested in how it all started, and want to own the product "because I want it" - well - do so NOW.
And thats it from me. Back soon!
PS - Here is a great little inspirational read to start your day - 16 Inspirational Fitness ReCollections.
(they ain't cheap tho. I know. And they won't be).
So, in response to my call out about taking the time to post reviews publicly (if you buy from Amazon, or some of the other bigwigs) – or privately via email to me for those that have bought off the website, I've been innundated with a FLOOD of responses.
And I'll cover them ALL in future emails!
For now though, I told you what John Walker, a great, great customer of mine had to say about 0 Excuses Fitness in a previous email.
He's also planning on (has already pretty much done it, actually) buying some of my other books – namely Battletank Shoulders, Corrugated Core, and Gorilla Grip (Advanced).
A man that truly GETS it – and he's right when he says that “these workouts styles are indeed unique, and not the run of the mill stuff you find in most other books!”
Indeed, my friend.
And to that I'd add (and did add) – that they get results- and QUICK!
Now, without futther ado, this man also owns a few OTHER books (yes, I have a LOT – and thats just the fitness lot – I haven't even got into some of my other writing on this newsletter, hehe) written by yours truly.
Here are the books (along with what he said) -
A Masterpiece of a book!!!
Format : Kindle Edition | Verified Purchase
The exercise in this book is quite difficult to master but once you crack it, it will blow you away at how good it makes your entire body feel, I'm 63 and let me tell you, this one exercise has done more for my overall wellbeing than anything else I've ever done.
A masterpiece, thank you.
My comments – Spot on, J!! There was a reason I mentioned this oldie but GOLDIE in the last email – and it was to wake some of you out of your lethargy and show you how ONE exercise can indeed be a FULL Body exercises – and one of the best ones ever!
And YES – he's right about how GOOD it makes you feel – I've covered this galore in my books before as well as my emails. Do these in high reps, and it's truly the best “juice” you'll need for youe entire day, and the DEEP BREATHING that goes with this is something else altogether!
(And the trick indeed in that regard!)
And of course, the numerous benefits to your overall FLEXIBILITY and spine strength (a vital area often ignored by a lot of people) – and CORE strength. Remember those comments about people's elbows “bouncing” off my core as a ball might off a wall?
Well – THIS exercise did it for the most part!
Get this now, my friend. You'll love it!
Then the next book he wrote about was the book on pull-ups – Pull-ups – from DUD to STUD within a matter of WEEKS!
(and the claim isn't baseless either).
Brilliant Book On The Most Important Upper-Body Exercise.
Format : Kindle Edition | Verified Purchase
Quite simply, if you cannot pull your own bodyweight from a dead-hang till your chin passes over the bar you are not "strong" and no amount of lat pulldowns will correct this weakness.
Buy this book and learn how to do the most important upper-body exercise correctly and you'll never look back.
Brilliant book, thank you.
My comments – Well, he's said it all! Not only are pull-ups a MUST to do for upper body strength – real strength – but if you can't pull your own bodyweight up repetitively in PROPER form – then you just ain't strong my friend. (and you're probably FAT as well, especially around the midsection).
Sorry if that last bit sounds harsh, but it's TRUE.
And last, but not least, his comments on Gorilla Grip, that old (and still) bestseller I've got out there.
Excellent Book On A Very Important Subject.
Format : Kindle Edition | Verified Purchase
Hand/Grip training is vital just for survival let alone sports.
If you take the time to develop a strong grip you'll automatically get stronger all through your entire body, the reason for this is simple, you have more brain signals to your hands than any other part of your body.
Buy this book, train your grip and everything else will become easier, excellent book, thank you.
My comments – Spot on, my brother. Spot on! Grip strength is truly the MOST important to develop in ANY endavor – and thats just the “bottom line” as ole Stone Cold himself would say, hehe.
Well, my friend, thats all for now. Grab some of these courses right HERE. I'll see you soon!
PS – And yes, all available INSTANTLY upon reciept of payment for you “e book” fans out there (and there seem to be a lot!).
Recently a customer ordered three of my books off Amazon (in addition to a few others he owns already).
His goal is to own everything I’ve written (fitness books) . . .which I can’t say is an entirely bad thing if you’re into true and functional fitness routines – that just flat out work – and make NO excuses for doing so!
What do I mean?
Well, lets hear it from the man himself, John Walker (from the U.K.) ... here is what he has to say about Battletank Shoulders (he owns Shoulders like Boulders already) - -
Another Barnstormer Rahul!!!
Yet again the bodyweight guru smashes it out of the park with "the book" on building shoulder size and power.
Like Rahul's other books this one is elegant in it's "simplicity" (simplistic not easy).
If you like to "train savage" this is must have book!!!
Bravo Rahul bravo.
.... for Corrugated Core ....
Not Another Abs Book
This is functional core training, not your usual get "buffed for the beach" nonsense.
This is hardcore training for a hard core, if you're after performance above pretty, then this is for you.
For "Gorilla Grip" (advanced) - he owns the "basic" version already ...
If you've ever dreamt of having a grip so strong that it's literally intimidating, then look no further than this book, if you follow the advice in this book and you're prepared to put in the work you will develop a grip that is quite literally terrifying.
Well, my friend, I think (for a change, hehe) yours truly doesnt need to say much in addition to whats been already said.
Except for thanks for the great reviews again ,John – and happy, happy TRAINING!
I’m out – and I’ll be back soon!
PS – And he’s right. Simple doesnt necessary equate to easy. Like the great Fred Herman said, selling is simple – but not necessarily easy! And the SAME thing holds true for my fitness programs. Get on them NOW my friend – you’ll never look back!
