Dead hangs, pull-ups - and more!

Friend, 

I dont know why, but I felt compelled to post this video - again. 

I just love dead hangs like nothing else - they are one of the BEST isometric movements you can do for the upper body - bar none. 

Often times I'll start my day with a 30 second dead hang even before my beloved Squats. 

With good reason, along with clubs (which are great to do with pushups, btw - a GREAT movment! They really loosen up the triceps and get the blood flowing again) - they loosen and strengthen the lower back - or entire back, I should say, upper especially like nothing else. 

I still remember Dad when I was young trying - and falling down after a second. Hehe. 

Unfortunately I never did them when I was young. 

But I do them all the time, today was another dead hang day, I loved it! 

Without further ado, here is the video for those that cannot see it at the bottom of the page - Friend,

And learn.

PS - This is one movement that will like the actual pull-up itself in any of its shapes, forms and guises BRUTALLY expose not just fat around the midsection, but if you're overweight in general, you wont be able to do it for any appreciable length of time - period. Most people that are fat try to avoid pull-ups anyway (big mistake) and whine about "your nonsense about just do it when you could tell people to do assisted pull-ups". 

Sorry, that isn't there (assisted pull-ups or in any appreciable form, even horizontal pull-ups mostly - though I believe I put that in one book somewhere) in either Pull-ups - from DUD to STUD within a matter of WEEKS! - or Pull-ups -from STUD to super STUD within WEEKS! 

I dont handhold or baby sit pansies. 

When I could do not do an exercise, I hammered myself relentlessly until I could do it, simple as that, so should you if you want to get good at something, no excuses pal. 

I really want to get one taken with my thick gripz, see how that pans out (video on that - and on THICK BARS outdoors!). 

All in good time. Hehe.

I will never forget the experience I had climbing the hill once in China - when a gaggle of schoolkids stopped me before I was even halfway up. 

From a distance, the chorus started. 

"Mei Guo Ren, Mei Guo Ren!" 

(American, American in Mandarin Chinese)

"USA...........!" 

If you've seen the scene in the famous movie Bloodsport where Van Damme and his pal enter the "Walled City" where they are stopped at the entrance by people checking - their guide ushers them in, but not before one of the guards chimes in with this ...

"USA! OK! 👍" 

Right down to the thumbsup. 

Its hilarious but true - that is how it is often in China. 

"Hen duo Qian!" was the next chant. 

(a lot of money) 

For reference, at the time - this was years ago - I was hardly even at the financial level I am at now. 

(which I'm hardly a millionaire now, neither have I ever claimed to be one, nor is that goal - though I probably to be honest will be one someday. Hehe).

I found it interesting, I told my wife, who was ranting as usual. 

"No money, yet they look at you that way and think so highly of you". 

I didnt reply, but I grinned. 

Little did she know. 

The secret I've been using before dumbphones and so forth . . . before all the so called motivational videos came out, before a lot of the crap passing for "self help" came out - a lot of the crap these lunatic Nazi feminists live and swear by. 

And it's simple - I THINK rich. 

Most of these idiots on their videos think they think that way too, but their reality shows otherwise. 

Anyway, it wasn't just one time, I've often been taunted in the past this way by the lovely wife who when she's in a good mood sends me long odes of "I want to sit at your feet forever" (true story my friend, I've got the emails if you're so interested) and bad, well you read it. HEhe. 

"You're a business man! You are rich, you have money, you travel to so many countries!" 

And it's people supposed to be closest to me that have done it but you know whats funny?

This whole "you're soooooooooooooo rich" thing I keep getting. 

(not to mention the sheer impotency behind the comments - these usually come from women, because they know, as a certain Charles said "you wont smack 'em in the head". And coming from my dumb ass wife whose day consists of being Buddha in the bed on an old creaky laptop with an external HDD attached so she can hammer her brain with meaningless videos all day - I can sort of understand the frustration she has about "me going here, there, and her precisely NOWHERE". Well, my dear, if you'd stop being a complete cunt for one ... ah, but wait. That isn't part of their lexicon!). 

And of course, the business is great when the money rolls in, when it doesnt, according to the wife "it's an useless biz". 

For reference, she was referring to the trading business which we were literally rollin in money before COVID hit, of course, once it did it was my fault. Hehe. 

We - or I, rather, am back up to steam there, but thankfully without my idiotic wife (the first time I was forced to depend on her for deliveries, now I just pay someone to do it). 

When these same people watch motivational *so called* videos all day long - which tell them to affirm "I'm rich!" to themselves, but yet those riches never quite materialize - when these same people affirm to themselves "I'm happy" - yet stay in "three days foul mood, one day so so, then the mood swings back to super jubilant the next ..." 

I did a brief talk on this here - a must watch, but in short, affirmations only work if you use them right and understand them, most do not, never will (because they're too damn lazy for one). 

I can almost predict it, hehe. Come to think of it, I can predict it like clockwork, and I play these people like fools all the time. Hehe. 

Look, it's all about the subconscious mind and activating it at levels that most people dont. 

And empty affirmations backed up without any sort of emotion for one - or fake emotion - doesnt work. 

Your mind isn't stupid, and it knows the reality of the empty bank account staring back at you, my friend - hehe (to the Nazi feminists). 

And thats how it will be unless you do what is REQUIRED. 

Anyway - point of this? 

Lots of you deal with this on a daily basis, and feel trapped, but you dont have to my friend. 

You dont necessarily need to go full on MGTOW either though that wouldn't be a bad thing. 

If you want to profit and benefit from these Nazi feminists and others of their ilk at unimaginable levels in manners even you didnt dream possible - well pick up "How to not only COMBAT - but profit from Nazi feminists BIG TIME from the Nazi feminist disease PLAGUING modern day society NOW. 

And that, my friend is that. 

Back soon! 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - The male equivalent of the Nazi feminist is usually a loser troll - of which there are tons in this world. 

Learn how to benefit at levels hitherto dreamed IMPOSSIBLE by investing in the one and only book of it's kind HERE

 

I've been giving out a lot of free tips these days (which I normally reserve for my books and the Ship members) to my email list. 

About how to do advanced exercises, how to get more reps, and a lot of everything in fact - you'll want to sign up for the newsletter if you ain't signed up already here

And, you'll want to subscribe to our Youtube Channel here - lots of great stuff! 

Anyway - today's tip? 

Last afternoon, we were doing a short video on pull-ups and dead hangs, and at the end of it I decided to give yall viewing a tip on increasing REP count. 

When you're fatigued, when you think you can't do any more pushups, when you can't pull - "at all" - when you're at that point, really speaking, you've only gone to about 30% of your capacity my friend. 

David Goggins said this in one of his books too - and he is right. 

But I'm not asking you to give it 100 plus percent in each workout that way - you'd probably burn out unless that is all you were focusing on (although admittedly some of us manage it) ... 

I'm simply giving you a tip on INCREMENTAL progress - which is ultimately what leads to big gains. 

At the end of that video, you will see that I tell you the exact words to use to say to yourself when you're in that situation. 

i.e. you can't get even a single more rep! 

Or half of it ... 

"Lets do 3 more, just 3 more!" 

The word in bold is KEY. 

Words, my friend, paint a PICTURE in your mind. 

When your mind sees "just" - it thinks of "oh, something easy there". 

And it prods your subconscious into doing the thing, which then calls upon your reserves, and you pump out more reps - or do the dead hang for longer as was the case in that video. 

I can easily go up to a minute in the dead hang, perfect form. 

I've done up to two minutes - and I could go for longer probably using the tip above - in an exercise most people, even a lot of fit guys - struggle to do. (dead hang, forget the pull-up, haha). 

If you say "lets do 3 more" (or 5, or whatever) - you might not get that same impact. 

Because then the mind never goes in to "easy peasy lemon squeezy" mode if you get my drift. 

That, my friend, is a very powerful technique indeed - if you care to listen and implement. 

In that video my little girl mentioned something - a riposte - about "but your name is not Justin". 

On the spur, in the flow, I wasn't sure why she said that. 

Given a guy named Justin wants to market on this site today, well, maybe thats why. Hehe. 

We'll see what happens with Justin ... but as an aside, many years ago, I was at Enterprise Rent a Car in NY (is it still around? I'll Goggle! (Freddie said Goggle, I must too!)) with the girlfriend at the time, I wasn't 21 - she was over 21, (I was a few months shy) - and despite a lot of pleading they wouldn't let me rent in my name - which means the insurance wasn't in my name - which means I couldn't drive for those few months. 

Ugh! 

I remember telling co-workers how I had to ask my girlfriend to get smokes for me (although sometimes we got 'em online). Hehe. 

One guy for whatever reason used to buy them from me at work - maybe he wasn't allowed to smoke at home? 

Anyway .................... 

(he'd often show up at my desk "just one more", lol). 

I still remember guy at Enterprise smirking at me and doing his version of being a smart guy and telling me "Thats the KEY age" i.e.21.

Well, we reached that key age shortly thereafter, a brother (a big burly brother if you get mah drift, hehe) hooked me up with a SUV instead of the economy car we budgeted for as I showed up to the house with the girlfriend in tears "because I took so long". 

Ah, the memories, including driving the SUV on the highways as it tilted on the sharp bends up in Maine ...

Man, that water was COLD, cold, cold! I didnt do any Brooks Kubik style workouts on that damn beach, the water touched my little toe, I damn near froze. 

Hotel (motel) had a nice little heated pool though, if I was there NOW - I'd probably jump in the ocean anyway. Hah. 

Anyway, I dont know why this email showed up in reverse, memories later, info first. 

Such as it Is. 

And since this isnt a travelogue, I'll end it here. 

Back soon - but thats the key word!

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - The key word to turn around your fitness in terms of supreme conditioning workouts - that build health, strength and vitality all in one quick (or many quick) movements - is Animal Kingdom Workouts - and the key word there - BUY. 

Nothing happens until you get off your duff and do, way too many of you haven't as yet! Hehe. 

PS #2 - Along with the "Goggle" part, well, once, back in the day, I accidentally pronounced Skype as "Sky pee" in a meeting. 

OK, enough with the ridiculous memories in that regard, but it was hilarious, to me at least - in China though thats how they say it, so it wasn't even noticed. Hehe. I did though later!

 

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? 

PRICE. 

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". 

Translation? 

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!

Best,

My very first piece of fitness writing...

Meditation and exercise time are when I get my best ideas - out of the blue - even when I'm not thinking of anything - (that shows you the power of the subconscious mind, or STARTS to) - and therefore, I do as much of both as possible if just for those reasons (though I do it, obviously for many other reasons too!). 

And this morning, I was "interrupted" by ideas showing up into my mind as usual. 

Now, it's different when an idea I gotta act on NOW shows up. 

When that happens, I know it - when it's "normal" ideas, they come, they go ... 

You'll see what I mean if you ever get into meditation deeply (I highly recommend it, except most people do it wrong, it's not about "finding the inner you" while meditating and other crap the gurus tell you, or to "tune out while putting music on" or so forth - all of those are many forms of what work yes. But they aren't the real thing). Maybe I'll write a book on that next. We'll see. Again, with my background in all this ... 

Anyway, that aside, my first piece of fitness writing came to mind. 

And it wasn't Fast and Furious Fitness as I have mentioned here, as this entire site is built upon. 

It was "fastandfurious" yes, but a different domain I no longer own, and wont mention here, but that was my first "blog" ... fitness wise, I believe. 

I was selling ole Fred Nicklaus's stuff - remember him, guys? 

Martial artist with two hip replacements and more, anyway, that lasted a short while. 

I got bored with it, didnt maintain the blog. 

"What could have been", of course, is an interesting story!

If I had started all this in earnest in 2004 when I first spoke to Brooks Kubik- well, what "could" have been with all the resources I had back then ... well, the question always begets!

(this particular blog I'm referring to was in 2008). 

I sometimes wish I could read what I wrote back then, if just to relive old time' sake, how I did things back then. The "waist whittling" as Brooks so often called it. Hehe. 

Anyway ....... 

I quickly figured two things out - selling other people's stuff wasn't for me, never has been. 

Nothing wrong with being an affiliate if that is your thang, plenty of people are - but for me, it's always been about building my own brand - in one way or the other. 

And other than the great relationships I built that way, being a "follower" wasn't either. 

I didnt know all that in those terms back then - I do now, but looking back, I've always blazed a trail - either with my workouts - or with my lifestyle - or with how I do things in general. 

Women, dont get me started. Hehe. 

And so, I wrote my own book two years later. 

Fitness wise, that was the start. 

I still didnt get going at the speed I should have back then, I really got to it in 2017 though - Cindy - thank you! - and have never looked back since then. 

If you were to ask me when all of this REALLY started to take off, it was when most other businesses started to die out - in 2020!

My wife was making a telling comment about malls the other day, how they're pretty much all empty now - something no-one talks about, but it's true in many parts of the globe. 

Those without stickability are already being forced out of the game. A lot have! 

Anyway - I'll see if I can dig up some internet history on the old domain. I believe I can, the posts are probably saved SOMEWHERE too. I know myself too well, I wouldn't let it go without a backup!

Anyway .... 

It all happens when it does - for a reason. 

When the time is right and ripe for it to happen. 

And fitness wise, my friend, if the time is RIPE for your own fitness to blossom, then start planting seeds today. 

Those seeds are what will really grow, nay, BURGEON into fitness machines down the road if you tend to them regularly , daily, and with proper care. 

Get on the 0 Excuses Fitness System now fitness wise - long overdue for those of you not "already" on it. 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - We still have some of the Collector's Editions of Fast and furious Fitness - so if you want one, shoot me an email, I'll have it sent out asap. 

And yes, I am STILL autographing those, or any other paperback/hardcovers you guys might buy - just say the word, pal, and it will be DONE. 

The vast majority of people live life "scripted" - and never go with the flow. Never on auto pilot, and therefore, they will never even BEGIN to feel the sheer freedom and joy - and more importantly results from living life unfettered - by the boss, wife (are they the same, hehe) - or "you should be more responsible" taunts by idiots - and so forth. 

And it shows. 

Man, I still remember ole Steve Austin getting the "Hall of Famer" award at the WWE ceremonies. He had pages worth of speech ready, yet, first thing he said getting up on the podium - - ? 

"I've got these speeches, but..." 

And then he launched into extempero mode. 

Sign of a true genius, a doer..

I still remember the first time I did a video in public - on my channel for all to see, the introduction to the 0 Excuses Fitness videos, I had a script - sorta. 

And I hardly even looked at it, though I was kinda nervous being filmed for the first time. 

Nervous, me, you might ask? 

Well, I might not have looked it, but I was - sorta. Not really, but sorta, but it passed within a minute or so ... 

Man, looking at a certain fat boy's Youtube channel replete with his nasty pics of gyno and boob jiggling and stuff he calls workouts - getting past all that (I think we all know which fat boy is currently haunting this place) ... 

... the INTRODUCTION! 

To say "pukeworthy" would be doing it a disservice. 

I mean, the dude looks like a nervous 16 year old girl - a fat one - in front of her high school crush or something, yammering, stammering, and constantly looking down at either his wanker, or more likely a "script" someone prepared for him. 

I mean you can literally see his heart pound out of his chest!

Now, not to be down on such folks but ...given he just can't stay away from mentioning me in some weird drunken rants he keeps posting on his youtube channel (I wont mention either him or the channel here) and claiming "I hate HIS rants too" (another real man I wont mention here) (I hadn't really heard of that dude until fat boy mentioned him, but reading his blog, I can sort of understand why liberal "sucking on government teat" (or the wife's bank account) fat boy" wouldn't like him. Different philosophies in life eh) ... 

.. Well, given that, I had to call a spade a spade. 

And ,well, this time I'll just let some of the commenters do the talking. 

"His carer has disappeared again it seemes". 

Man, I thought those guys were trolls on his site. 

Viewing just a few seconds of that was enough to make me almost spit out my beer, but that would be a waste of a perfectly good brew. 

I did 25 slow pushups to get it out of my system. 

But really... 

Benny truly seems to be LOST. Hehe. And thats being very kind, Benny Boy, those comments he keeps deleting are all spot on. 

Anyway ............ 

In life, in business, in politics, I'd rather a Trump  - or myself - or a Steve Austin "off the cuff" (most of the latter's success was achieved exactly that way, Vince gave him a free hand on RAW pretty much within certain very broad and flexible guidelines - nothing, including shoving catheters up nether ends in hospitals was "off limits". Hehe). 

Biden, Obama, these script readers - Ugh. 

These liberal wackos are all the same, but Benny takes the cake, I must say. 

Not to mention the amount he praises himself, then looks at the script anxiously "did I miss something", and then you can almost see the tail wagging for approval. 

Look, dog, UGH. Thats just ... cringeworthy. I mean, if you gotta praise yourself to the high heavens and beyond, well, that explains why most real men want NOTHING to do with a Bozo of this nature (and the system was right in "spamming" his affiliate application in the first place. Ugh! Really, not just his fat or his training or what not, I can stomach all this, but someone this pathetic? I'd rather engage with a Nazi feminist woman than him, at least she's female... Hehe (so called)). 

(with this dude, who knows. Ugh). 

Then again, I'm sure we've all seen someone far more pathetic? Bozo "drunken" Schofield being one ... 

Anyway .......... 

Look, bottom line, grow a pair man. 

And thats really all I got to say on this one, pure rant, but man, is it well deserved or what ... Hehe. 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - REAL man workouts, not sissified Youtube "glory shots" or whatever they're called are what build confidence from the inside out, that swagger that shows even when it don't, boyo. And a Corrugated Core is a MUST for that, if you're fat, you're not only fat, but you wont have that swashbuckling confidence, my friend, and thats a FACT - Jack. 

Deny it all you like, but it shows. 

Along with the course above, the 0 Excuses Fitness System is an absolute must. 

And thats that. Oh, life isn't scripted, "natural" is what works best, pally, of course, try telling that to utopia dwelling nutcases and Bozos...

Not to mention, these liberal fools - it's truly pathetically mind boggling how hypocritical and far up their own fat backsides their pea sized "heads" are. 

please dont use your imagination here. Hehe. 

But really, this fool here that was rightly put in spam for six months, there's a reason why he jumped at it even after six months (and that was only me being generous enough to email everyone that had slipped through. Sometimes, like Rueben once told me "I need to stop being so nice"...) 

And he, despite claiming "he hates what I stand for" (and presumably from his latest woozy rant - every real man falls on his "hate" list) ... he was more than happy to play ball here because his greedy beady little eyes saw a way out, MONEY, unfortunately like most liberals, he didnt pass the test of persistence - he didnt even start. 

Pathetic, dude, really, but I done forgotten all that a long time ago, but GAWD, that god awful wanker video ... ugh! 

Liberals = utopian (the worst kind) hypocrites, and thats being kind, but then again we all know that about these LGBBBBTTTTQQQ (maybe thats why he parades his gyno does Benny Boy) lovers dont we ... ugh again.

I mean, the minute he saw he'd have to put his fat butt to - ahem - WORK - he threw a hissy, and that was that. 

He seems to hate Johnny grube too, which I get, being "wild" isn't exactly up his alley. Hehe. 

Anyway .................. for posterity's sake while he is wacking off to "wacking me into oblivion" or whatever his latest (I gotta say, I read it thrice, I couldn't understand what he was yammering about) rant is ... 

(like dude, being a keyboard warrior ain't exactly an example of "tough guy", but then again, what do I know. Hehe. Like I said, get in the ring with me, and thats that - except I wouldn't with women  or "in between's".. Hehe.)...

Anyway, for posterity's sake, here is who this guy is - https://0excusesfitness.com/2022/06/30/did-i-ever-sell-many-of-my-products/

Logic to the rescue, not that these fools will understand the L of logic... 

I haven't covered either one of these (the pull-ups) in "Pull-ups - from STUD to SUPER STUD within WEEKS!" - and their pushup equivalents - in Pushup Central. 

(to the idiot "evangelist" commenting upon my books, much like with Bozo Schofield, at least READ the books you're leaving your half ass price wanker reviews on, fool...) 

Maybe I will, but the pull-ups are just too brutal to cover directly. 

Maybe in Volume Three!

One being the towel pull-up. 

Brutal, this one happens if you throw a towel over your chinning bar (just make sure you dont do it right after the shower, hehe - and if you do, make sure no-one is around to either observe your "full moon" or admire and "worse" (think Glyn, ugh)) ... and do pull-ups that way. 

There's many variants to this as well, but the basic movement itself is extremely brutal, and much like the special grip exercises with towels in I believe Gorilla Grip -ADVANCED! - it will truly build a grip from CAIN very quickly indeed even if thats all you do grip wise, and again, trust me, you'll naturally (want to and will) gravitate to MORE. 

Second being something I mention indirectly, that being rope pull-ups - doing them on ROPES. 

Ring pull-ups are often thought of as tough as well, they are. 

But ROPE pull-ups, the way it taxes the grip - and remember, when it comes to ropes unlike steel bars, thin is NOT easier! It's even harder to grip a thin rope while working out than perhaps a thick one in many ways. Try it, and see!

Maybe I'll write more on these later, for now, the pull-ups that are very directly mentioned in the books above and explained in great detail should be more than sufficient for you pull-up monster and afficiandos! 

Now, their pushing equivalents. 

Well, none for the towel movement, I gotta say, unless you count what I do normally, which is to pop off a set of max or not max fingertip pushups in a towel right after a shower, usually a freezing cold one. 

If it ain't freezing cold, which it dont seem to be these days, I take pains to make it that way - right after a workout. 

Yes, more conventional wisdom of "if youre body is warm dont jump into the cold shower" flying out the fuckin window... where it BELONGS, to the trash can. Hehe. 

Try what the Finns do sometimes, boil in a sauna first, then jump into the freezing cold waters of the Arctic, then talk about "logic", body temperatures and such. 

Anyway ............... 

A style of pushup I recently saw which made even me go WOW? 

Handstand pushups - not on dipping bars, which are WOW enough (Doug Hepburn did these). 

But handstand pushups - on get this - ROPES! 

My, the grip required just to do these - I'm not an expert on these, but thats something to work up to, me thinks! 

In the meantime, you can of course use ropes, rings and other pushup bars to do pushups, but I prefer the good old floor, fingertip and knuckle amongst other variations. 

I believe simple, again, works best, and it does. 

Now, last comment to cover, an idiotic one that came in - along the lines of - the long lines of "so what if you're Indian" (followed by some choice words involving color if you get my drift). 

Hmm. 

Yawn. 

Like I care about the slang - I'm being polite. Hehe. 

I just "junk mailed" the guy again like I'm doing with all spam these days, but his whining was about "so what if you're indian, why does that uniquely qualify you to sell Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness" (this relates to an email I sent out in that regard). 

Well first off, you idiot, I never said that was the only thing that does. 

That is the icing on the cake, sure. 

But the cake itself, if that ain't there, there's no point having icing is there - unless you're into that, of course. 

What I mean is this - just like I kept telling Charles the former friend, no, "Indians aren't necessarily better than a qualified white chef, or any color, for cooking Indian food" (I sure ain't) - the same way, my "heritage" doesn't have F all to do with this. 

If I wasn't the bodyweight exercise Guru, a term very well deserved even if I say so myself, then none of what I say would matter. 

But that dedication and fantacism to training is what qualifies me, my friend, along with everything else I speak about - and my heritage merely means what is "alien" to most is "common knowledge" for me, but again that is only because I'm interested in training, and I do, as opposed to "evangelist arm chair wanking for Bozos" if you get my not so subtle drift. 

Nothing matters except that, pally. 

It aint bout the BS, it's about cutting right on past it, which is an alien concept for most - especially these days, that I admit. 

And thats that.

While getting through my 500 pushups today (which has again become a goal for me daily after ... I think 10 years? Hehe 2011 - 2022 and going strong... 11, OK) - I was super sore from yesterday's workout which y'all know all about. 

And I was "easing" in this morning - not with regular high rep "sets of 20" (my preferred number) pushups in slow mo form to work up to 500, but sets of 5-10. 

With super strict form and super tough movements, now, as I've done 30 this way, and the blood starts to flow (I'm already through 25 pull-ups and a few stretches) - i'm getting ready to rock - and ROMP - and PUSH. And pull, hehe. While pushing!

The pike pushup is a pushup I mention in Pushup Central, I think, but only the BASIC variant. 

This, my friend - I dont mention this as a pre-requisite to handstand pushups in Shoulders like Boulders!. 

I really SHOULD though - because this movement is one of the best ones you can do to condition your shoulders - and build huge lumps of muscle on them at the same time - while simultaneously getting a solid, great workout in. 

And the very angle of the movement, a "Triangle" shape is what you'll have to get into - Hindu pushups x 100 I'd say - gets your shoulders ready for vertical pushups i.e. handstands, and then the pushup from that position. 

This movement is also way too tough for most to do off "jump street" - thanks Charles! - therefore, it's not in the pre-requisites in the book - but Hindu pushups sure am, and they should be done galore as well. 

I haven't been working Hindu pushups at all as of late, I'm more into the "floor humper" I spoke about yesterday - on fingertips, working up to one arm. 

So should YOU, if you're truly into core fitness and overall strength and conditioning. 

Anyway for pike pushups, your body forms a triangle - a very inverted one - on your tippy toes, then you bring the head down in a straight line. 

Sounds easy but it's anything BUT. 

Fingertip versions are even tougher. 

Now, something else people have been asking me about as of late ... 

A style of pushup which taxes forearms big time. 

And one which ... I don't do too often, and have not included in the book, because I believe it's overkill and isn't really "required". 

And not entirely safe starting out either, or even when you're advanced. 

Thats the "back of the hand" pushup done on the back of your hands. 

Look, I can do these, I sometimes do them - but the very angle of them makes it a bit of an unnatural movments, pretty much like chin-ups aren't the natural way to "pull or grip" i.e. supinated is what you do normally, not pronated. 

Same with pushups, how many times do you push with the back of your hand? 

Of course, you can do these if you want, but be very careful not to injure your break your wrist. 

These tax the forearms differently, but again they are not REQUIRED - hence, I haven't really devoted a lot of attention them - and probably wont in the future either. 

Focus on what works, and max bang for your buck ... 

And Pushup Central, and all of our other products sure do deliver on that front. 

And they always will. 

Whether or not YOU, my friend, take the required action after all this is entirely up to you ... 

I know one damn thing though, if you're into fitness of ANY nature, then Pushup Central is just a must grab, even if you never get anything else from us. 

Really, I'm being honest. 

And that is that - back soon.

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee 

Do ya'll know what sheesh kababs are? 

They're a delicious meat delicacy - Do a google, you'll find it. A close equivalent is the "seekh kabab" - another equally delicious kebab which is basically rolled meat and spices - and then grilled - have it with a cold Corona and lime - there is nothing better food wise (except perhaps a juicy T Bone steak, or perhaps a RUMP Roast, hehe - but they qualify, but don't "go ahead" in the "which one is better" race!). 

Trust me, these are delicious. 

In china, they have their own version of roadside BBQ which I've always loved - which is of course where I wanted to take Charles out for dinner, he got too drunk, so the bozo whined and tagged along, ate damn near everything I ordered, hehe - and then never paid for it (apparently the usual excuse of "trying to find his ATM card"). 

I just up and told him to stuff it and paid anyway, what a lunatic! 

Like Chuck rightly said, if you go out with Glyn, always remember, he'll NEVER pay! 

Well Chuck was flat on his ass in the hotel bed - happily drunk on Chinese liqor, therefore ... (and there's no way I'd dare to ask a certain K anything - except how to direct a taxi, etc - and the way those eyes shot daggers at the Bozo and myself at 3AM in the morning, I'll always remember that. Hehe. She wasn't that bad though - it was just Chuck was being a real man and told her to shut up with the nazi feminist nonsense she was starting to spout at the time. Say what you like about ole Chuck, but he's got his good points... hehe. Unlike the Bozo, he seems to be the one person on this Earth who isn't a mixture of "good and bad" - just DUMB x 1000 and nothing else). 

Anyway, I love meat - huge meat eater. 

And point of all this isn't to tell you you get some great "Chapli Kebabs" in the Middle East, hehe. 

Dont even tell the wife that one - or my father. They'll both explode - for no fault of mine, trust me on this one. 

I mean, think about it .I'm there working a job (which I didnt like admittedly, but I was at least trying to make a decent go of it, the location was new at least) - and three months into it I find out that the wife shot HR a nasty email behind my back I knew nothing about - then they called me to the office to bitch about it - I was like dude, I know NOTHING about it - and I didnt. 

They were like, well, you should be apologizing for it. 

Huh? 

Apologize for some rubbish I neither did nor authorized nor even knew about? 

I dont think so, Jose. Not to mention the HR Dude there really puts the "F" in fat -or the O in obese, I pity the seat of the poor BMW he drove... 

And Dad started hollering about how I should apologize, I was like dude, wtf, not like I knew shit about it anyway? 

dont ask me, long story - but bottom line, kebabs - they have them there too in the Middle East. Hehe. 

And the wife has named a certain someone ... ah, I wont go there. 

Anyway, thick gripz. 

I've spoken about them in the past, those grips I use all the time for my pull-up bar at home which turn them into a version of the thick steel bars that I do them on outside. 

With less abrasion on the hands - they work great. 

I think they're almost a couple of inches thick, which is less than the steel pipes I do pull-ups on outdoors. 

But you can really SQUEEZE those suckers, which adds an extra dimension to it all. 

You can do the same with iron pipes, of course, if you can ... 

But anyway - what I did today was an idea I had when I woke up this morning. I could barely wait to finish my meditation before I wrote this to you - but I had to test it out first, and I did. 

Whew!

My arms feel - or my forearms, more to the point - like SHEESH kebabs basically. 

Fried. 

Almost to the bone. 

(oh, the China roadside BBQ - make sure they're not serving you RAT instead of lamb if you try it. Hehe). 

Anyway, the clubs I use for my workouts - the 20 kgs, or 40 plus pounds depending upon how you look at it - those have thick handles anyway - around 2 inches thick, I'd say. 

And this morning, what I did was put my thick grips on it! 

Let me tell you, that adds a HUGE extra dimension to it - except, if you're a grip fanatic - not as much as you'd think, but you'll feel it. 

I did some of the exercises (one handed) which are tough for me with 20 kgs in one hand with this (again, if you're an idiot that thinks "it's too light", then please stop wasting my time here) ... 

And I did them without the club flying out the window or hitting me in the jaw, hehe - but then I did them again - without the gripz. 

And they felt so much easier ... so much easier!

Granted, I did them fresh out of bed, granted, I've been doing them for donkey' years, but when you can do club work - heavy club work - with damn near 4-5 inch thick grips, you know you're getting somewhere grip wise - and upper body strength wise. 

Not to mention CORE strength, this isn't sitting on your butt and lifting a dumbbell. 

This SAME concept applies to kettlebell - hammers - sledgehammers - axes - or whatever "toy" you used to train with. 

Trust me on this one. 

Is it necessary? 

Not unless you're a grip fanatic, but with all the mind body brain benefits of being a grip fanatic, why would you NOT be one? 

Anyway - you dont NEED Them because ... most of these implements come with thick handles anyway. 

And often times, it's best to go back to basics even if you're an advanced man or woman training these - and train without thick grips - indeed, I often do pull-ups on a regular chinning bar just to perfect form and getting the sternum to the bar even more than with the thick gripz. 

(And last but never not least - - the combo I just mentioned, I've written about it before, it'll fry even advanced trainees to the bone - WITHOUT additional grip work, so ..) 

All fun and games to start a Saturday morning - wait, that was noon I woke up at? 

Afternoon off. 

Hehe. 

And thats that. 

Grip wise, Gorilla Grip - and Gorilla Grip (Advanced) - MUST be your constant companion, along with Gorilla Grip - TIPS!

And remember, the 0 Excuses Fitness System is an absolute must, you dont put the horse before the cart. Or the cart before the horse, what have you hehe. 

And GET IN - repeat, GET IN THAT PRE-ORDER for Lumberjack "Lodestone" Fitness - if y'all love these sort of emails which I know you do - well, you wont be able to put the book down for months after getting it, that I guarantee, and the changes that will take place in your body once you get on my routines - my - all I can say is you will WONDER. 

PS - Affiliates, keep doing the great job you're doing, but remember (I doubt this email will go out to affliates, but either way) - remember, your OWN words on the book, the product, Rahul Mookerjee etc are what really matter and count in terms of promos. 

I've admittedly been guilty of not offering certain people that worked for me in the past copies of books etc, but if you have a proven track record, come talk to me, we'll see what we can "hammer out". Hehe. 

I really gotta update the categories section on this site to include a TON more than there are already, truth be told, since 2010 - thats one thing that ain't been updated on here. Hehe. These are the same categories I had when I first began... 

Maybe for a good reason 

But CORE training, grip training, all of those need to be in there 

Anyway - the term "chakki peesna" 

If your Indian, or have been to India, you've no doubt heard of it - in English, this translates to "working the grindstone" - or more accurately, the MILLstone. 

From a seated position most likely. 

Let me tell you one thing - Indian prisons are the opposite of Chinese prisons (not that I'd know, Glyn would though, heh) (so would a certain Shantaram ... though I hate to speak of Schofield in the same voice as the latter! who is a legend) ... in ONE regard, perhaps more, I dont know, but ONE regard. 

As far as I know, as far as I'm aware - Chinese prisons dont let you workout. Period. They do make you, amongst other things sit in a seated position on a bench for 15 hours straight and thats getting started, which to me would be torture enough (much like locking a dog up in a tiny room until it went stir crazy) ... 

... but exercise, no. 

At least not as far as I know, and I'm probably right on this one. 

Now, they've got their reasons for it, of course - not allowing prisoners to exercise is bad for their mental health, overall health and ... well, their SPIRIT most of all. 

And while I dont agree at all with this sort of punishment, not that I agree with what goes in most prisons I've heard of (Glyn, again, ugh) ... it is what it is for a reason, I suppose. 

Indian prisons though - opposite. 

If you've seen Rambo II - you get an idea of what they make you do even today - breaking heavy stones - CARRYING heavy stones - all stuff straight out of Lumberjack "Lodestone" Fitness ... including the axe work, actual lumberjack work and more. 

It's normal. 

And everyone I believe pretty much does SOME form of labor, those sentenced to hard penal labor do more obviously. 

But one of the exercises you'll see them doing a lot - working that grindstone. 

Or, millstone - which is the same thing, a circular stone like thing on the ground with a thick rod sticking out of it, and you grind it in a circular manner, back and forth, back and forth. 

Back in the day, during the colonial era, some of the atrocities inflicted upon the "natives" by the British included a version of this at the infamous "KaalaPani" prison (in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands). 

"Black water" - and it literally was that. Ugh! 

They'd chain a man - usually in a dehydrated and completely fatigued - and underfed to a T state - and more - to a grindstone, and they'd make him run - for hours. 

It's work an ox does, they'd make  men do it for hours a day, usually 8 - and a severe whipping awaited if the task wasn't completed up to par - grinding husks I think, to get oil out of them - truly a Nazi style punishment. 

Yes, the Nazis weren't the only ones who did those things - the Japs were guilty of it, so were the Brits... 

Anyway, point of me saying this? 

It's one of the most awesome CORE and ab exercises you can do, my friend. 

In Corrugated Core I believe I tell you how to do it - but the advanced version of this is what I really love, which I dont think (though I might be wrong) - I mentioned in Corrugated Core, which truly is a book you core fanatics must get. 

When you do this movement i.e. "working the millstone" from the JCVD split position mentioned in "Advanced, Profound Isometric and Flexibility Training" - not only will your core get the workout of it's life - but you'll also get better at the isometric while dramatially loosening a portion of the body most dont even think about - the hamstrings (and upper back too if done right). 

The split itself does it. 

But this adds "fuel to the fire" - and how!

I just got done with 100 reps along with club work, and man, my abs are truly on fire and HURTING. Hehe. 

I could do more, I'll probably do fingertip pushups now. 

But the point of me telling you this is two fold - first, to tell you if you do this exercise for at least 100 reps a day, then you'll truly have a core of steel. (even if you dont do any other "direct" core work). 

Combine with other stuff, well, you get the picture (especially if you combine it with the best darn exercise ever). 

Second thing though .. 

Doing a 100, or 250 reps of this - wont mean jack shit unless your CARDIO is up to mark, my friend - which involves a lot of factors. 

Some people are fat as hell, and they have "strong abs" beneath the phat, now if you don't focus on workouts which give you cardio along with strength benefits (the above does, but only if you do it quick as I keep recommending) - then losing the fat will be a chore my friend. 

It's not about doing 250 , or 100, or 500 reps per workout - well - it's that to a degree, but it's results that count most of all, and fat loss wise, it's the TEMPO at which you go, the TEMPO that you can maintain over a while that really gets the heart thumping and the fat flying off your frame. 

You'll see what I mean in the 0 Excuses Fitness System videos. 

Those 250 pushups and a lot more I did not plan on but did anyway - well, you'll see more than anything the SPEED at which I'm going - it aint slow for one. 

And the way I maintain form on everything I do - as YOU should too. 

Thats really the key thing ... 

And of course, doing this exercise - and other great ones mentioned in Corrugated Core is a must, of course. 

No do, no get anything. 

Same thing for being a cheapass (lots on here seem to be, especially some of the ones that have been on this list for ages, haven't done "F all" in terms of taking action - really - if that is YOU reading this my friend (IF), just unsubscribe NOW - do us both a favor, in other words) .. if you dont SPEND, you wont learn the true secrets (and no, not everything is available for free. The old axiom holds true, you get what you pay for). 

Anyway ... 

So thats that. 

BAck soon!

Best

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - If y'all are still wondering (some are) WHY - just WHY - I keep saying, and rightly so, with my background on all this minus the prison (I'll leave that to Bozo Schofield, hehe) - to bring you Lumberjack "Lodestone" Fitness- then you BE living under a rock, pun intended. Hehe.
