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.
Well, well, well!
As we head into 2023 - I'm thrilled with what lies ahead - and how far we've come - on all our businesses (although I have to admit, the fitness business seems to be the one attracting the most number of trolls - wankers exist everywhere, but fitness for some reason has sadly turned into a pissing contest of "who can sell what for cheaper" which is sad ... as with anything else, the real goods always come at a price - a huge price - which is life too my friend, and you get the benefits accordingly too).
Anyway - the trolls seem to have had, for the most part, an especially rocky Christmas. One fat troll was so enthused by the the turkey this year he, if reports are to believed, even sneakily ate up most of the wifes turkey, then claimed "it was a small bird, costs are rising" or some rubbish, ate up all the bread etc, drank all the booze up in the house too - didnt get out of bed the next day - did so irritated the day after - and then promptly started his trolling which is now bordering not just on lunatic, but downright desperate. More on that later... but it reminds of a certain Schofield who once showed up at Charles's house in Jieyang, refused to budge, I still remember the aggravation in Charles's voice when he sent me those voice notes about Glyn.
"he sits in a room all day trolling people, eats all my food, drinks all my beer, NEVER pays me for it ; makes a royal mess, doesnt clean up after himself" (he didnt quite include the part about Glyn taking off with his girlfriend's underwear - ugh - that came out later as he was tonked out rather unceremoniously on the road, face down in underwear on a street in Jieyang - someday I'll post that famous pic here. Hehe).
Then a lot of them have figured out their financial situation isn't about to get any better (mostly because they're so damned lazy) - so they've decided to go down the SJW route apparently, and write long rants on Amazon about "why are his books so expensive!!!!!!" (not that it's any of their business, hehe).
Some like Schofield have realized it's becoming increasingly hard to work their scams from overseas on gullible old ladies - and have hunkered down in Mama's basement - and every time they feel aggravated about something which is daily, they write lengthy rants about yours truly. Hehe.
As you can tell, these trolls truly come in all shapes, sizes (ahem) and forms (double ahem).
They will ALL be mentioned in the upcoming book on profiting at the highest levels from trolls (something most people wouldn't dream of, and dont know how to do - most get angry, hate it etc - but there is a far better way of dealing with it my friend - make MOOLAH off it!) ... Profit Troll.
One of these fat muttonheads is an obese (literally) troll who regularly sends me photos of his phat self along with his boyfriend (I am NOT shitting you here) - that cannot do one single squat in proper form (and is too lazy to try, so claims "step-ups are the God of fitness" or some nonsense). There;s another who cannot do a pull-up in proper form and has a long history of cosying up to fitness guys, and then being summarily booted by each and every one of them because he neither looks the part (obese) nor can he sell anything (he lives on his wife basically, we all know him) - and then trolling them (oddly enough he never realizes his trolling is paying off for them big time, hehe) - and his latest is claiming that ... "dancers dont do pull-ups" (where this Bozo got this from only he knows) and that his fat back is the epitome of fitness ...
This ass clown does the sort of pushups where his nose touches the floor first so he doesnt have to go all the way down on a rep ...
(some of this sort have long brown "Pinoochio" like noses from poking it in where "it dont belong" - and literally, in "orifices" as Bruce once said, to "brown nose" "where it dont belong" Ewwww!)
Just bonkers that guys like this are even around, but hey. We all need the amusement. Personally for me I normally stay away from it all and just count the sales, but for me - well - sometimes even need my amusement, I have to admit, the desperation showing through in some of the trolling, most of which is ultimately centered around MONEY - is hilarious.
Give them the product for free, they'll promote it all day as the next best thing in fitness as phat boy used to do, when you call a spade a spade - ie in terms of their results and their own complete lack of fitness they throw a hissy fit and go the other extreme. Strange, and its sick how they keep coming back to me for my "approval" - end of the day they're pissed I didnt lead them out of their mess.
As Sly rightly said in ... the prison movie - Lockdown?? to a guy who kept saying "but you're our leader!"
Goddamnit, I'm not your leader!!
But true leader are followed no matter what, so they follow me, tongues out, they have to do SOMETHING in their sorry lives, so might as well troll I suppose.
Insane, the level to which price whinging has gone up to as well, not like these trolls have products of their own to promote beyond dodgy supplements, and writing books, putting out great videos etc - forgettttttt about it. Hehe.
There's so many of them as well - but anyway, point of all this?
Is two fold.
One, a lot of our great customers decide - literally - hehe - sometimes - how to choose a product.
"If the trolls troll you the most on it, and you're so proud of it, I must have that!"
And so he did
Pushup Central, the very BEST and only definitive course out there on pushups like only the bodyweight exercise Guru can teach you, yours truly used to be #1 on the list for a long time ...
And here's the review he left -
The Bodyweight Guru has done it again, 55 ways to bring on the pain, a magnum opus on how to really use what is possibly the world's oldest and "most diverse" exercise.
If you're like me, you live for that pain, the feeling of your muscles as they stretch and contract and how your body screams at you to stop but your mind will not allow you to quit, you have that target in your mind and you cannot stop until you hit that target, yes my friends this is training "brutally effective" training.
Buy this book and take up the challenge of Push Up Central.
The Bodyweight Guru is waiting for you, let him show you how with this (innocently sounding) book you can become more than you could ever have imagined, this is hard training at it's absolute best.
Now a word about the previous review, Glyn Scofield is a total moron and his reviews suck almost as much as he does, Glyn, if by chance you ever read this, do yourself a favour and just stop, nobody cares what you think.
Bozo left this review -
Boring, poorly written... drivel.
A whole book dedicated to... how to do pish ups. Really? Badly written too.
I'll let y'all decide which one to take into account. Hehe.
But other than that, the other books on the hit list -
Squat 101 - from idiots that can't squat because they're too phat.
(or lazy, more like).
(when seeing me even when fat do pull-ups willy nilly they whine about how I should be "kind to others" about their own utter lack of strength and fitness).
As a customer rightly said about this book -
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.
And he's right...
No chin over bar = not strong, my friend, cut it whichever way you like - emailing me pictures of your fat self chomping at the bit about "strong arms broooooooooooooo" won't cut it broooooooo... Hehe. (dont you just hate it when idiots show up at your doorstep with this "bro" bullshit? I know Marc the African Silverback Gorilla hated it..)
Truly, as charles Mitchell once said about "Shoulders like BOULDERS!" -
People buy your books because they want to learn how to do things from you - you can do things they cannot, but they want to!
And the trolls troll exactly for that reason too. Hehe.
And Jump Rope Mania with all the great stuff we've put out in the paid version is attracting trolls too (literally you'll want to get your hands on this one NOW. There is NO other course that will teach you how to get to ACE level at jumping rope than mine can. You'll want to grab it NOW).
And so it goes, my friend.
Advanced Plyometric Training is one slated to come out very soon, you'll want to place your pre-order for this now.
(one troll even claimed "learning from this dude is not the way to go". but he forgot to put in WHY... Hehe. Can we say ???
Well, thats true, as the phat troll claimed once "he wants a few organs for the book".
Not really, hehe. Like this guy said in a review for Grizzly Power
Although I don't own this particular book, I do own two of the books in this compilation so I believe I can give an honest review.
Hopeful Evangelist points out that the authors books are reassuringly expensive and I have to agree they're not cheap, however, as I've pointed out in a previous review of the authors material, you cannot put a price on knowledge, if you want the authors knowledge you have to pay what he is asking, otherwise you'll miss out.
Interestingly, Hopeful states that the authors knowledge is nothing special??? Sorry I have to disagree with that statement, the author knows his stuff from the inside out and his training methods work but here's the "kicker" his training methods only work if you do!!! There are no magic exercises or routines and that's why most people do not get the results they expect from their training, they lack application.
It is often asked why prison inmates are so muscular and "jacked" what is their secret? Their secret if you want to call it that, is this, they train very, very hard and they do this consistently day in day out without fail.
If you apply yourself appropriately to any of the authors works you will be rewarded for your efforts but do you have what it takes? You've got to dare to sweat, dare to strain and dare the pain, most are found wanting, hope this helps.
The more they troll, the more I make. Hehe. I'm luvin it!
And thats that - truly the bottom line.
Pity the fitness world has turned into what it has, but hey - yours truly - always the visionary, always the torch bearer, always the iconclast, and rightly so.
Folks - step up - show your REAL MAN "vibe" (god the terms) - and get these products NOW - and if you do so before the New Year, well, plenty of other goodies awaiting you for the New Year.
And thats that!
This morning, two things happened - well, many things!
I got an email from the Bozo saying he signed up on this site with a new email address. I was going to block his ass, but we'll do that later, too much going on to worry about nutjobs for now!
Too much GOOD!
Paula from the other site wrote in with some SUCH SAGE(ess) words about some of my bestselling erotica that ... well, I was flabbergasted, DUMBFOUNDED, and STRUCK by lightning yet again, how I wish all affiliates - or partners, or people were like her - so damned dedicated to her work, so into what she is doing, saying, it shows!
And she repenned some of my words in the spirt in which they were written - in her own prose. Poetry!!!!!!!
I'm no poet like the Countess is.
But, Empresses and Countesses aside - and the tech issues I've been dealing with aside - I thought this would be as sage a time as any to pen some of my own words - or, bring you what is ALREADY penned, and slated to be entered into the annals of the Hall of Fame very soon (if you get my drift) from some of the best bodyweight training manuals ever written.
(not my words, mark you!)
"Pushups are the BIG DOG of fitness"
"The road to the top is a long and lonely one, but boy is the view at the top WORTH IT!"
I was thinking about the latter last night, and how far I've come - or WE have , I should say in that we dont give a rip about nothing no more - back in the day I'd give an iota of consideration to trolls, fools, apes, copy artists, unoriginal morons that come to this site for ideas on what to write, fat apes, and so forth - the losers basically- an iota.
I'd never care about them even then.
Now I welcome them with open arms - truly, as our books rise through the rabble out there, it's about results, the end results not how many fools you piss off, and so called friends you lose.
Like they told Milka Singh, if you want to fly high, you have to LET GO of the lo lying fruit!
And that holds true for life, fitness, relationships, friends, idiots, Bozos, morons, SOs that dont get it and bitch in an inane manner like two year old's on speed - everything. If you have that goal in sight, thats all that matters, nothing else does, if something else DOES matter you ain't really serious about the goal - period - bottom line. Cut that any way you like, but it's so true.
From Squat 101 -
If you ain't squatting, you aint training.
And from the "Pushups - Reverse Pushups - the BEST darn exercise ever" - in the form of a customer testimonials - "truly this one exercise has made me feel better at the age of 64 than ANYTHING else I've ever done in my life".
There's plenty more in my great and outstanding books, but we'll finish off with another book I consider to be OUTSTANDING - and from a real man - Brooks Kubiks Dinosaur Bodyweight Training.
The manual has plenty of informative lines jampacked in it, but this one line is hidden, forgotten, yet, truly the diamond of all diamonds in the book.
"If you're fat and have a big gut hanging over, then you simply wont look like an athlete. Sorry if I've offended anyone, but it's true".
So true, Brooks, so true.
Milka Singh remained humble till his last day despite his stunning accomplishments.
When he was knighted/promoted to "officer" rank in the Indian Army those that commanded him before saluted HIM. Including a former trainer.
His response was to hang the medals he won for India around the old guy's (trainers neck).
Guru ji, I could never have done this without you, he says - as he bends to touch his feet once again (it's an India thing, the touching feet = respect).
There is only one person I consider to be a real trainee amongst all the rabble out there - Brooks Kubik - and those that train like him!
NO PRISONERS MENTALITY - RUGGED and masculine even at his age - NO BS!
And while Advanced Hill Training sales page covers how I met him initially - well, if I were to meet him now?
No touching feet. Neither one of us is into that, or would want it.
I'd give him the Gorilla Grip and challenge him to better me. I'm sure he could! I do that with my buddy from the Marines all the time!
And then I'd train with him doing log carries. He could probably kick my can in it too - but who knows - yours truly is the "Khota Sikka" as they say in India!
And thats that.
PS - For the gaggles of nutjobs and idiots who will no doubt question "how much does he make off this".
ZERO. I get nothing from stating his name, neither does Brooks who likely doesnt even know I'm writing this.
Some things aren't for money, fools!
I'll always remember how Brooks treated me as one of his own from the get go training wise.
So he should.
Thats what counts- and matters.
TRAINING KINSHIP! (done right).
I'm out - back soon.
In came a great question a couple of days ago - on pull-ups, at that - he was wanting to know if I counted warm up sets as part of my routine.
Great Question A!
Now before I address this - I've been very vocal about the fact I hardly, if ever warm up before diving into my routines. Even straight out of bed I'll dive into HIndu pushups and such, but sometimes, what if it's freezing cold - or you're sore as heck - and so forth?
I hardly warm up per se even in those instances.
What I DO do is isometrics - and partials to get the blood flowing often times.
I dont walk or jog to warm up - though I do plenty of it otherwise.
I dont engage in lengthy stretching before my workouts - I do so after.
I dont do routines "for warmups" first.
Would be pointless in terms of time if I did that, one of the main things I keep saying in the 0 Excuses Fitness System, and indeed a main USP (unique selling point) is the fact you dont need loads of time at all for a full workout including everything - every part of the body.
And while beyond the dead hang I dont need warmups at all for pull-ups, lets answer it in terms of pushups.
Often times, I'll hold the isometric like I just said.
Or, I'll do partials - slowly.
Or, I might go 80% down on some of the initial reps.
I might be a bit shaky as I "get into the movement". and so forth.
Once that phase is over, I'll usually do something else like swing clubs or dead hangs for a minute or so, then I'm fully "Warmed up and ready to go".
If you do it right so will you!
Sometimes I even do 15 perfect reps for a warm up - slow and easy - then come back an hour later and do 85 more pushups to finish a bare minimum of 100 daily.
And so forth.
It all depends, its up to you in terms of how serious you are about your training, how you KNOW that simply being stiff and sore ain't an excuse to be lazy and skip workouts.
Now, the million dollar question, do I count the reps?
Sometimes I do - differently.
5 slow pushups done 70% of the way done, I'll count as one rep, if I do half a jerky stiff pull-ups, it's half a rep, and so forth.
So I do count 'em, depending ...
But if its just a hold, or "shaking hold" with the ab wheel (great new video out on that - despite me saying I wouldn't do videos today, after writing that last email to you, I got in the mood!) .... then I won't count 'em as part of rep counts for the regular workout.
And that holds true for every exercise I do.
So thats the answer, A!
And - hope that helped some of you as well.
The 0 Excuses Fitness System is warmed up and ready to go for you HERE - https://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/
I hope you dont need a lengthy warmup for the index finger on that one, hehe.
They literally do - and I dont mean people starting off with dips and pushup -where simple isometrics done in those movements, as I showed you in the case of my friend Prem the other day - and as I told you about Marc the African Silverback Gorilla when he was getting into the dips position to HOLD FOR TIME - those are indeed workouts that will make people at that level "quiver" like a maple leaf in a Toronto breeze (Marc is FROM Canada, by the way. Hehe).
The "African" part, well, I'll get more into that later, but can we say massive, mammoth shoulders for one. Hehe.
Anyway - this morning I was supposed to go out and do some more filming - specifically, the last video in the paid series for Jump Rope Mania! - squats and jumping rope - if there ever was a more brutal combo for the legs, I'm yet to hear or experience it.
Done right, these are leg sizzlers.
Done right, you wont be working legs hard for the next day or so either. Hehe.
And therefore, with a slight case of the sniffles I seem to have picked up, I know my body well enough to recognize when it's saying - train hard - but train something else.
I dont blame it, with all the roadwork being piled on it as of late too ...
While thinking about clubs etc, I picked up a tool - or implement, I haven't again, like the jump rope, used in like ages.
The POWER WHEEL!
Or, ab wheel as it's called.
And I did some isometrics with this - the roll outs - and so forth.
I Was going to film it all, and put most of it in a paid download for Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness, but there comes a time you have to take care of yourself first my friend.
With all the filming going on as of late, both for the free youtube channel and my paid stuff, with all the work on the other business where even the affiliates are doing ROARING business, handling it all from a tech and sales perspective, plus all the other crap a real man has to deal with in terms of women etc -well, it was getting to be too much - and I'm sitting here drinking TEA right now.
No doubt I'll be working out again later.
But point of me telling you this - first off, the ab wheel shows up in the book above - rightfully so - if you're into training with implements, this one probably should be at the top of your bucket list along with Indian clubs.
MUST you get them - or implements in general?
But if you want 'em, cash permitting - do get 'em by all means!
And not from me either at this point - although I might sell clubs and maces at some point, I dont now.
But I could point you to some very reputable sources for getting the indeed, straight from India at that, sheesham wood.
Anyway - the ab wheel - I had two of these.
One was fancier, wheel encased in some blue casing but it broke, so I tossed it - bought a new one (I think I tossed it, not sure).
The wheel was fine, wheels actually, I think I still might have it SOMEPLACE, I dont know - it was beginner level ab wheel.
This one is the regular one with two wheels in the center and a handle on both ends, and man, as I did my isometrics with these, I felt muscles I haven't worked in a while begin to literally quiver.
Not to mention I torched and smoked my grip in a manner I haven't for ages either.
And shoulders too!
You'll be wanting to wait and see what I have out on Youtube for this - as well for the paid section of Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness (those of you that love the youtube channel, well, you ain't "Seen nothing yet" pal, hehe).
For now tho let me tell you, these aren't a beginner's tool.
And you'll want to get damned good at the "extended arms pushup" I mention in Pushup Central before you even try the full ab rollouts I do. MAN!
Talk about building stability and strength through the core and shoulders - and grip.
And truth be told, that above exercise is all you really need to do, but ab wheels, well, they work the GRIP and shoulders differently - perhaps a little less of lower back and lower abs than the pushup, but do BOTH if you can is my advice.
And thats that - I'll be back soon with more!
PLACE your pre-order for Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness NOW my friend.
PS - NEVER, never, EVER make the mistake of thinking implements replace bodyweight.
Newsflash - nothing replaces bodyweight training.
You can take it to the NEXT LEVEL Though with these sort of training tools and implements!
But if you, like many people think "oh thats great, I Can skip my pushups and squats" - no you can't either my friend.
Kettlebells are another immensely useful tool I use occasionally too - I'll cover that soon in upcoming emails. Stay tuned! (and the book, of course).
I still remember the 'General' during one of our public spats on Dongguan Expat, hehe - I still remember doing something very minor (in hindsight) to a post on there - initially configured so that only Michael, Rahul and Uncle Bob could post to it - and then disappearing off to a company party where I had WAY too many drinks - enjoyed a certain "V" who seemed to be dancing especially for me, with all the winks and all she kept giving me during the factory dinner - damn.
Not that she didnt do it all day long in the office anyway ...
Those were the days, Freddie eh. Hehe.
I quit that job later - but thats another tale - but coming back home, I fell asleep - next morning I woke up to two things - one, the guy who I drove to office with wasn't showing up or something (he got pissed when I called him out for some BS in front of some girls, apparently his ego got hurt, hehe - he was a "senior manager" or some crap and from there on in, things were NEVER the same between us - neither would I really want them to be - though I gotta say, that factory had weird rules with not giving all the managers their own cars, Uncle Bob's factory was different in that regard...) and two, well a note from uncle Bob saying "Michael has done something downright nasty".
I logged on, took a look, and almost spit out my coffee which I drank back then.
First off, a post in response to mine about "who unlocked this post yet again"
"I unlocked it. Next time, you guys do something with TDG and try to promote for FREE on DGEX, get your *&^% together ... " came the angry response.
Then, something which befuddles me till this day.
Yours truly was partying it up at that time.
Certainly on the puter, I doubt Bob was either.
"Right now, only Michael, Rahul, and Uncle Bob can lock this post ...
I unlocked it and then one of us locked it back up AGAIN! ⚠
This is NOT a pissing contest . . . can you PISS farther than me ❓
You are BOTH FIRED as Major Generals and Site admins. Public posting to follow shortly.
If you have any problem with this, feel free to flame me publicly".
This was just so hilarious, coming from Michael, I just goggled. Remember, this was supposed to be and was a community website for expats in Dongguan at the time!
It was even more hilarious considering I never worked "for" Michael - rather "with him".
We basically founded the damn thing ... Bob, well, no, but he didnt work "for" him either, but the funniest part - the colors Michael put in there which I can't show here - and the "can you piss farther than me" drunken note he left.
As a site admin, that certainly wasn't on!
And I still cackle about it - and miss those days.
2003 - 2020 .. The General is still going strong I hear, though after a couple of his heart attacks he stopped downing cases of beer daily. Hehe.
Thats a trip down memory lane.
Now over HERE - recently, I (truly) fired an affiliate a while back - and I suppose the reason I bring this up again, is because like an annoying mosquito or something, he's never really stopped "buzzing around here".
This guy - well, a brief "background" -
He's fat - and claims to workout when in reality its two minute Tik Tok bursts, and then the guy goes back inside the house and "crashes on the couch".
He's almost 40, has never worked for a living, lives on his wife (poor lass) - basically she wears the pants and he's the house husband, except he doesnt even do that correctly.
It's just pathetic, the guy sits at home all day and does nothing but 2 minutes bursts of exercise which is fine if he's actually do some WORK for a living rather than be self entitled and mooch off others ... typical trailor park trash basically.
Anyway - he's basically tried to be an affiliate for every fitness guy under the sun.
They've all - myself included - given him the BOOT - not so much for him being a fat fucker, but because he can't sell even $8 ebooks worth a damn.
And no-one - no sane businessman or woman wants that sort in their lives.
Same thing for the jobs he's applied to in the past. For whatever reason he's been summarily booted from all of them ... until one fine day this ass clown decided "working wasn't for him", so he sat at home, mooched, and grew even more fat, despondent and melancholy. We all know someone like this, dont we? Haha!
He's one of these whiny liberal sorts who deep down inside hates himself because of the loser he knows he is, because the mirror tells him uncomfortable truths daily - because he knows he makes no money and is, at the end of the day, dependent upon a woman (poor girl) for even the most basic of his needs like the 12 pack he looks like he downs every night.
All of that for me, well ...
My systems here work very well.
And when that system put his application in "junk" for six months - well, I should have left it there "in the trailor" as it were.
But you guys know me, super helpful for everyone.
Perhaps it was an angel on my shoulder who said, you know, give the guy a chance, maybe he'll actually DO something if you help him out.
Of course, after he thanked me up and down for mentioning him on my website - and how he "was really enjoying my writing and so forth" and other sycophantic stuff - his whining started.
First thing you know, he wanted free copies of my books to ostensibly "review".
Nothing doing pal.
Some rules are there for a reason, they dont get broken for ANYONE.
Then he whined a bit about ...well, I can't quite remember, I asked him about sales, how he was getting along - basically what I ask all my employees - and left it at that after he claimed "he needed time".
At that point I thought maybe I was right - maybe he was actually DOING something for a change and thinking long term.
Of course, liberal whiny self entitled trailor park trash types - thinking ain't their thang, neither is business - just look at Glyn Bozo for one. (their business is mooching off desperate women and in Glyn's case of course, bottom of the barrel scum considering his thoughts and actions with underage people - just horrible!).
This guy "Benny Boy" doesnt quite fall in that category but trailor park trash - yes, and mooching off women, well, yes.
Anyway - you try and be nice to some people.
Oddly enough, they refuse the very help you give them.
I mentioned the dude on my site, tried to give him a leg up (which was hard, he's so damn FAT! Hehe) - but seriously, I did it. Indeed, I remember him writing back saying "no-one's ever done that for me!"
Then I even put a photo of him on the Gorilla Grip (ADVANCED!) page, since he was selling that at the time, I figured despite his obvious deficiencies, lets me at least try and help the guy the best I can, maybe it'll help him sell something and get him started.
Nothing happened, month later he sent me a lengthy whine about prices and other rot, and then I simply gave him the almighty BOOT, the heave - ho - what not - it was hard, my foot done got stuck in layers of phat dripping off his frame, but it had to be done.
And it was.
Since then of course being the liberal hypocrite he is who can't seem to decide, much like with Glyn, which gender he is, he's been doing his best to attack the business. Hehe.
Which is fine, and equally hilarious as the initial message I posted above.
Like dude's not in - or near - the big boy's league.
(think about it, a thoroughly unprofessoinal horse and buggy so called cheapskate "wanting it all for free" affiliate with all the "skills" and character traits above and below (no pun) - and the Rolls Royce, the bodyweight exercise guru - the whole comparison is just ludicrous whichever way you look at it. Which world do these people live in?? Venus? Seems so, hehe - certainly not "Mars", that would require you to be a man at least in SOME regards!)
40 years old (or damn near), has ZERO confidence (And the voice of a 16 year old school girl, you can literally see the heart thudding out of his chest as he attempts to talk on camera, just GUTLESS to the extreme the guy is, ugh) - hates himself deep down inside for being a complete loser and too lazy to do much about it - and lives on his wife - while doing exactly NOTHING productive with his time all day other than goggle at PS4 or whatever she buys for him.
He could change this, of course.
Sadly, he's too lazy to do so, which is fine.
But deep down inside he can't stay away from here - he knows who the leader is, and who the followers are. Hehe. Much like Glyn does.
And it's fine by me.
His trolling centers on what most of these price wanking Bozos do i.e. try and tear down books they havent even read in the first place, so giving them negative reviews and whining about "how much he charges for them" - hehe - it just shows their own desperation and complete lack of any sort of initiative. (and the desperation at not being able to sell despite desperately "trying to" Hehe).
Like what sense does it make from ANY standpoint to review a product you have not even bought, read, or owned - beyond me, but these Bozos live in liberal la la "Brittney lovin" land ...
Hey, I can see an idea forming already in Bennys fat brain as he reads this, snacking on yet another nasty pack of Cheetos ...
Anyway - all of this is fine by me.
And Benny and the rest of them are more than welcome to do so, but the home truths stated above - they apply to a LOT OF people.
Look, dude, running a business costs money - it takes acumen - skill - and many other things.
I run three of them, fourth in the offing.
And your comments just show you'll never be able to even GET a business going, much less run it.
Copying, apeing, and being cheap ain't the way to run any sort of business my friend - not that you even have one.
Life doesnt work by just "throwing it against the wall and seeing if it sticks" - shit always "sticks". Just not in the way you'd think it would Penny ...
Life doesnt work by running to the wife every time you want money for your daily necessities my friend. Just sayin, end of the day, you gotta at least make enough money to support your copious and very voluminous food requirements eh? I mean, I'm not a huge supporter of my Mom and neither is she of mine (fair enough) but her comments about the "washerwoman's son" who "looked like he eats all the family food" - well, I hate to say it, but that applies more to you than him. Hehe I'm just sayin, my friend...
Really, these people that want everything in life for free boggle the mind, how can someone even be so shameless and pathetic (loser basically) is beyond me, but hey...
Not to mention a borderline scam artist considering he sells dodgy supplements that could really fuck up people's health SERIOUSLY. Not that he has any idea of how to use them himself beyond anecdotal so called "evidence" - or copying sites I mention here, hehe - like I said, this sort would pull their pants down and happily bend over for $10 more for their six pack that might - does $10 even get you a decent six pack these days btw? Hehe.
Actually, "flat out liar" is a better way to describe this sort - pretty much in the above guy's case, what everyone picked up on sooner rather than later, and then booted him summarily - like dude's clearly never for one done any sort of high rep movements beyond 20 second Tik Tok bursts - which is fine - but at least dont lie about it and fake rep counts etc like everyone knows and says you do - even if they wouldn't - it "showeth". Ahem.
Thats not the way to run any sort of business - let alone a successful one!
Yours truly delivers - above and beyond.
The 0 Excuses Fitness videos - truly the "icing on the cake" as a great customer - several - have put it - were originally meant to have 100 pushups and some more things, I did 250 because of the nature of the beast of that product.
The newly released videos for Squat 101 and Pushup Central have quick and dirty workouts - both ending at over 100 reps, exactly 12 plus minutes ... and with variations that would make most advanced men (Benny doesnt fall into "man" category, let alone advanced, so not him) puke their guts out if they even tried it. Hehe.
I dont HAVE to do this, of course. I could well do what I promise, and be justified in charging my prices, but that ain't me - that ain't my own life - that ain't what I want for people - especially my loyal customers.
And that ain't how to be a success either. Therefore...
Anyway, the Point here isn't that Benny Boy should attempt not to be a complete loser - point is this - don't LIE. Liars and scam artists, yours truly - and anyone with any sense - simply cannot stand 'em - and in their lives, this shows - as it should.
And enough said on that one - but thats a lesson for everyone in terms of what sort of affiliate - or customer - or partner - we want on our site.
A perfect example of the polar opposite of Benny Boy is HERE (before I'm done with him, this sort will be mentioned in Profit Troll - you'll want to grab the pre-order before the price goes up again - and this sort, my friend, is so gutless they can't even mention you by name. I've mentioned him by name so many times, but he's too gutless to mention me by name because he knows ultimately it doesn't pay to "cross the boss", hehe, and much like what happened with Glyn, the SAME thing awaits him if he does so - but still. What a loser, gutless!) ...
This lady is just awesome - I have never once seen an affiliate so dedicated!
She's even created her own website despite NOT being an IT person (she's taking classes) to promote my books on the other business - exclusively.
Every morning I wake up to status reports from her, and new and innovative ways of promoting things.
When she takes off, she tells me for how many days - despite the fact she does not have to.
And she's back at it - like clockwork - when she promises it.
Her dedication has amazed me so that I do all I can to promote HER too. I've even made a partner in some regards in the biz!
And, I keep giving her suggestions to grow, she takes all of them - and it's been a month and a half since she got started, and is she racking it in as yet?
But the signs are there.
She's laying the ground work.
She understands life, success -how real success only comes after laying the groundwork, thinking ahead, planning ahead, DOING the thing, and so forth ...
THIS is the sort of affiliate I want!
And as I come across yet another email from her ... well, I had to write this - if just to give you an example of what sort of person to avoid in your life, what sort of person to KEEP - what sort of people you do BUSINESS with - and so forth.
Of course, only a real business person would understand any of this.
Not wankers that are so addicted to me that they despite throwing several hissies about "I'm leaving!" - cannot actually leave.
Again, this sort hates themselves deep down inside.
And they know who the boss is - ultimately. Hehe. So they follow along, tails wagging ...
Why just affiliates?
Lets look at customers, a certain John Walker for one, a stellar son of the soil that worked in the auto industry all his life, never asked for a quarter, never got anything in life for free like these entitled Bozos I mention up there did - never once complained about it.
Does his best to get EVERY product I put out here.
And so dedicated is the guy to his workouts even at age 64 - that I do my best to extend him a most generous discount every time he makes a repeat purchase.
He is the sort of person - and Paula is the sort of affiliate - that makes all of this so worth it!
Anyway. Lots of life lessons here.
And please don't do butterfly pull-ups - I knew when I was going to write about it last night - some idiot would get back saying "but they work!".
Well, if you think they work, do 'em - but dont come whining back at me is all I ask.
Really, all I ask from this sort - continue on your merry way - just leave me alone and out of it, I want no part of it.
And thats that. Lots of life and business lessons for those that care to pick 'em up ...
PS - A lady just told me something I already knew - well, she told Twitter - about inspiration striking "at any time". So true, Madam. It struck me as I dropped into the best damn exercise ever for the lower body - the SQUAT!! Hehe.
Lots of guys get pissed about people copying their stuff - their themes - their ideas - their work - rightfully so.
The last thing you want is for someone to shameless ape you - and lots of people will send in angry copyright notices, threaten legal action and so forth.
Yours truly does the opposite though - and encourages them to do MORE. Hehe. Which they all gladly do, especially the trolls.
Now, I've covered this topic so many times before I wouldn't even get into it here, but this morning, I had this thought - of a certain Major General Michael, Rahul Mookerjee, Uncle Bob - and sometimes, "Ziv".
We (Michael and myself) started Dongguan Expat (well, he started it, but the bulk of the work in many regards was done by me) - then invited Bob and Ziv into it, then competition grew, Bob started his own competing site with me doing the programming stuff, and pretty soon, it was hilarious - downright hilarious - the "Competing" aspect of this which I never got into.
Bob would advertise something, the General would follow suit.
General would do something on his website - Bob would follow suit.
Yours truly just chuckled at it all - like ole Clint in "the Dollar series".
No, I wasn't playing both sides.
I was being pretty honest about it all!
But either way, I was being SMART is the best way to put it really - either way, ultimately, it was DG Expat that "won" in all regards, while Uncle Bob, bless his souls site never really took off in any regard.
You can't ape an original, my friend.
you can try.
But being a shameless ape (in some cases parading your bitch tits while doing something so horrific I wouldn't even call it a toddler pull-up -ugh - believe me, there was an ape I saw last month doing such a belch - or puke worthy version of the pull-up that I didnt just block him from all my communications - I did that a while back - I even deleted cookies from my browser so I NEVER go to that page again by mistake. Ugh!) ... well, it does two things my friend.
Unlike with most people, it makes me "giggle". Which is always good, more amusement.
Not to mention it only proves these ape's loser status - which they themselves are parading in front of the world for all to see.
What I find really hilarious about these bozos?
I do something on the site, a day later - like clockwork - they attempt to do the same on their sites, or excuse for sites.
I use profanity in some of my emails, sure enough the next day some of these goggle eyed trolls eagerly haunting the site for "whats he posted next" - will use the exact same wording. same terminology ...
I get reviews from people telling me how my products and writings have changed thousands of lives, how we continue to motivate, uplift and inspire, and Bozos will parade around the next minute saying "we both do so!".
It's hilarious, the way people try to "learn for free" here.
It's even more hilarious how in all cases, bar none, these nuts have been blocked off the site, communications etc - yet they haunt the sites to see "what he's posted" - like a toddler anxiously waiting for Mommy to get back with chocolates - or what not - heart pounding away nineteen to the dozen.
Its sick in a way, they get off on the humiliation - but hey - to each his (or her, for some of these Liberal "I can't decide my gender" nutwads) own ...
Its sick how (in some cases like Glyn, fat boy, a certain "Keith" and so forth) - they will do ALL they can to get my attention - from whichever perspective. Hehe.
And it's just hilarious how in many cases they dont even have anything to sell, and what they do have they can't sell.
Not to mention the hypocrisy of some of the liberal sorts signing up as affiliates, tails wagging, and then claiming ...
Well, take a look at this -
"Hi! This is <chopped> from Affiliates! Could you change the tenor of your words please? My girlfriend gets really offended at some of your writing about ... <chopped>
... <personal info chopped>
This was, believe it or not - or maybe if you're into the Brittney Griner crap going on (come to think of that - are there any depths of stupidity the Biden Admin won't plunge to?? The Russians, I can hear them cackling at the idiocy, so they should!) a 40 year old WOMAN SAYING THIS!
Look, honey, if your girlfriend dont like it, tough shit, you were well aware of what you signed up for.
Of course, the girlfriend loves the fitness bit ... Hehe.
And of course, these liberal sorts are hypocrites that will gladly take it up the ass if it means a few extra bucks for dinner that night. (even funnier, a lot of these guys, gals, in betweens couldn't sell a $5 fitness ebook without whining about price if they tried. Truly. these sorts are just SICKENING. The world has WAY too many losers!).
These losers truly do disgust me, but in a weird way, like I mentioned before, it's just another indication of whose star is rising continuously, and whose never rose to begin with - pun not intended, especially NOT on that latter part. Hehe.
Anyway - back to sanity - I've been receiving RAVE reviews from people already on the Pushup Central workout videos - although it's just been a day since we got it up. I've no doubt the same will happen with Squat 101 too very soon ... but MORE people have bought Pushup Central (for now) than the latter, which makes sense, the latter only came out this year - and so for all these people, I'm back to creating MORE discount codes - and remember, those of you that have bought the book - you're entitled to the video part of it - and no, you dont need to "pay again" for the book - hence the discount.
And, remember to place the pre -order for Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness while you can at the current price, something tells me that long overdue project will be out next.
"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.
Should be a no brainer, right?
Most would choose the latter "to build strength, muscle and conditioning at a far higher level" - there would be nothing wrong with doing so either, but ...
Here is the fact, my friend - like a customer Charles Mitchell once told me in 2018 "less than 0.1% of the population can even GET into a handstand and hold".
By that I mean a proper handstand - held for time as well, preferably at least 30 seconds.
Those that can, can barely BUDGE from the up position before collapsing down.
Not to say they "can't" do it.
They're usually too lazy or too fat - or a combination of both - and wont work at it assidiously. Trust me, if someone like me can get to elite level at them, so can you - so can anyone. Fact.
But anyway - while doing them today with pull-ups, I was struck by just how EASY they've gotten for me.
This is a feeling, I thought to myself as the top of my head touched the ground again -I never had even when doing those long workouts for Battletank shoulders - although I did them then, the FEELING was different.
Sure, add on 3-4 years of solid, continous practice, thats one reason, my overall health and conditioning levels - another reason. Et al.
The real reason, though, my friend is this - STICKING - and always getting back to - and improving on BASICS.
In Shoulders like Boulders, I gave you some supplementary exercises to do BEFORE you start cranking out handstands, this section is often ignored by people.
Along with the dip though - a huge, huge exercise in there?
The FLOOR pushups I give you - specifically, the table, Hindu and REGULAR pushups.
Trust me on this one, my friend.
I've said it before, I've given you real life examples, I'll say it again - nothing beats pushups in their own way, not even pull-ups.
They build and tax the CORE in a manner even pull-ups dont (no, that ain't me saying they're "better" or worse).
It's a different sort of conditioning from the inside out - to really feel it, you have to do 100-200 pushups daily for years, and add in other core work, but really - if I were to pinpoint the core reason behind this feeling of "easy peasy" for handstand pushups - it would boil down to really scrutinizing my own form daily on regular and other floor pushups, doing them - and getting better with each workout.
One of those things you'll have to DO to experience, but I've given you the key.
Now whether or not, as John Walker, another customer famously once told a price wanker "most have been found wanting when it's time to put in the WORK" - you're willing to listen and DO the thing is up to you.
And dont think for a minute handstand pushups ever get easy to the point you dont get a great workout from doing 'em.
They never do.
And level four in the "Shoulders" series will show you that, and then some (in the works as of now).
In the meantime - have a great day - train hard - and write back - let me KNOW how it GOETH!!!
P.S. - To know all there is about doing pushups at an elite, high class level - invest in Pushup Central NOW. When you get to the point of doing what I do in some of the pictures on the sales page (and if you think thats something, wait till you see the BOOK!) - well, write back again - LET ME KNOW!
In the world famous 0 Excuses Fitness System, yours truly breaks things down and gives you the "10 Commandments of Physical Training" (success at it) before anything else.
Before the exercises. Before the workouts. Before all of it, because the mind is always the most important. I've made sure to really emphasize this in the first book on pull-ups as well, one of the most notably tough exercises for people to do right, and also in "Shoulders like BOULDERS!" for obvious reasons.
These lessons and commandments apply not just to fitness, but to life.
And today I'll give you three golden rules of manifestation which most gurus wont agree with - yet those same so called gurus have either knowingly or unknowingly followed these paths, and are not telling YOU because they're telling you what you want to hear, not what you need to KNOW in this regard.
Works for fitness - and life both.
Here it is, if I were to break it down into "three".
There's more, but these three are core tenets of any sort of successful manifestation which I've struggled with at the start my friend, and it's effortless now.
One, let me tell you what it does NOT involve - saying "I am".
It doesnt involve becoming a hermit or standing on one leg in the Himalayan mountains, or meditating for days, or growing a long beard like I am right now.
And any of that self help rot they tell you.
It aint about the so called Law of Attraction. That is a crock if there ever was - it works, yes, but only in its purest form.
It's about a lot of hard work first off.
Second, more importantly. It's about the right WORDS. And FEELING.
Third, and this is MOST important.
MENTAL FOCUS is KEY.
Thats the three commandments in ascending order, my friend.
Not sexy, not what most self help gurus tell you.
Look at the lives of most following those self help gurus though ...
This, my friend - is how you manifest success in ANY Field - fitness or not.
I'll have more on this subject later, but as I literally live a life of "think and it WILL happen" - remember one thing.
There is no magic involved.
It is a rational art and science both.
Dont think you can go out not having done any workouts in ages and think you can start sprinting up hills like Walter Peyton for one.
It aint gonna happen.
Dont think a million dollars will land at your doorstep tomorrow if you just think about it.
It aint gonna happen.
Other hand, you do the work, use the right words, most importantly, focus like a horse with blinders on and have FEELING behind not just your self talk but your bloody actions too - and it'll happen like "magic" almost.
Trust me on this one.
That, my friend is that . . .
I'll have more on this in the future as well.
Thats the update for now.
Back to the bearded pard doing handstand pushups . . .
