A couple of months ago, a reader from India contacted me for some “fitness tips”.
This dude had been doing pushups etc for a while, and going on long walks etc to lose weight – and judging by his “before” and “after” pictures – all I can tell him is a) well done, bud and b) you’re 80% there.
Trouble was, the remaining 20% was what was causing him consternation.
You know what I’m referring to, don’t you?
That “last” bit of weight – or the “real” strength gains that seem to take forever to come – or don’t show up at all (as was the case with this dude).
Anyway, the first thing I told him to do was to sign up for my daily list which he did, and he purchased the 0 Excuses Fitness System shortly thereafter. Smart dude. Made the right choice.
And today’s email is about some MOST interesting feedback I received from him – so interesting in fact that I’ve posted it on the testimonials page I’ve recently put up on the site right HERE – http://0excusesfitness.com/testimonials/.
(This page is constantly being updated, so do check back – for whatever reason I never quite got around to “collating” all the numerous emails etc that I receive on this, but am doing so “by and by” now).
And here is what he said:
This is an amazing book on fitness that has the right combination of intensity and intelligence. These aren’t soul crushing workouts or weight training, but they certainly aren’t a walk in the park either. The word that could best describe these workouts is SMART. It helps you play with your bodyweight and get yourself super fit.
Well, well, well. Interesting indeed, and pretty “well” worded if I might say so myself, hehe – or perhaps I should say “interesting choice of words”, but either way, he gets his point across pretty well!
Yes – these workouts are NOT a walk in the park.
Yes – these workouts are NOT “soul” destroying “marathons to the death”, hehe. In other words, there’s no “long and drawn” out pavement pounding or other nonsense that we’ve become accustomed to hearing in terms of cardio, and certainly NO “3 sets of 10 with 5 minutes breaks in between” rot that we’ve been “fed” in terms of strength building.
But the most interesting part of his comment is as such “helps you play with your bodyweight”. Very interestingly worded indeed, my friend – and when you think about it, it’s TRUE.
NONE of my workouts are boring – in fact the sheer variety of exercises contained in the 0 Excuses Fitness System makes it nigh impossible to even START to get bored, and truth be told each one of the exercises can be done in many different ways as well.
So its FUN – and folks have a tendency to stick with what is fun – and if what is fun works – well – you’ve got your cake and are EATING it too my friend.
And last, but not least, I couldn’t agree more with the smart part. Yes, it’s smart to accomplish MORE in 15 minutes or less than what the vast majority of trainees accomplish (or don’t) in their long drawn out training sessions.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with the latter option if one prefers the “treadmill to nowhere”, but if it were me, I knew the choice I’d make.
I’d take the swifter route that works BETTER.
Simple enough, my friend – and AMEN to that, even if I say so myself!
All for now – happy 2018 again – it promises to be a WILD one!
P.S. – Yes, it’s far more productive to work smart and accomplish more than “put in the slog and accomplish little” – and the same mentality holds true for workouts. Find out more about “smart” workouts right HERE – http://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/
