Don’t worry – be HAPPY!
- ... and a timely reminder indeed!

As I wrote the last post about swimming – – as those memories surfaced (I should say RE-surfaced) from way back in the day, there was one feeling that suddenly SWEPT over me – and one I gotta share with you right now.

That being “happiness”!

As I remembered my swims – the good times – the general “casual” nature of being in school at the age of 19, and not really worrying a damn bit about what was going on in the world outside, or what would HAPPEN AFTER we graduated – and so forth.

A “dream world” of sorts – or should I say “fairy tale world”, hehe (as a lady recently told me).

A world that EVERYONE has to go through at some point (well, unless you choose or otherwise did not go to college) – – and a world that most people have fond memories of and I’m not an exception to that rule.

While my school days weren’t the most pleasant due to many reasons – my college days in general WERE – and I have nothing fond memories of the time I spent at the University of Southern Mississippi (my alma mater) … even when I was getting D’s and F’s galore, hehe.

Anyway, what is the point of me saying that?

One, that no matter what we do (and this is a message that bears HUGE relevance now) is that after it’s all said and done – – once you’ve made the decision – – once you’ve just done it – – it’s time to let GO, my friend.

Let go, and stop WORRYING. No more if’s, but’s, maybe’s, or whatevers.

You did it – now stop worrying and – MOST importantly in today’s date – BE – and STAY happy!

Be happy – be grateful for what you DO have – and in these times of COVID-19 and the mass PANIC sweeping the world, I often tell people this – AFTER I tell them that logically speaking, we really shouldn’t be worrying about this COVID-9 anymore than we did SARS – or perhaps even “H1N1”.

Or the common flu, for that matter.

OK, maybe a tad bit more than the above due to the mortality rates – but logic aside (and really, given the gross ILLOGICAL decision being taken by people globally on this), lets focus on FEELING.

Things will return to normal. NO, the virus will not be the “be all and end all” scenario so many people are talking about.

What has to happen WILL. Like I have said before, and like I maintain, and as Emerson, more of a philosopher than I (or Napoleon Hill for that matter, from whom I first learned about Emerson) so sagely said, there is a silent third party that balances ALL the books in the end – for everyone.

There is NO hiding – there is no ESCAPING – and compound interest is the rate of this exchequer, as he rightly said – – and though those words have been uttered a century or so ago, they bear RELEVANCE today. I see evidence of this in my daily life, and none more so than in this time.

Even so, that said, since there isn’t much you can do to change the “grand scheme” of things – why not stay HAPPY and CONTENT in that knowledge – be GRATEFUL for what you do have – – and then try and change things in your OWN life?

How about making today the day you finally, finally, get to 100 pushups? If not in a row, how about in sets?

Or, how about the coveted 500 … a goal I set for myself back in 2011, and a goal I’ve often written about (and have mentioned as inspiration in my latest book)?

How about climbing that hill you’ve always wanted to – and doing so – AGAIN – at the end of the first climb? Another ROYAL bit of motivation that …

How about writing that book?

How about NOT worrying about what others think of you – – and just be YOU?

How about … just NOT worrying – – and staying happen?

Bob Marley I believe it was that coined that song (coin, hehe, and there is a good reason that term comes to mind), and it has stuck in mind ever since the age of 6 or so, when I was old enough to understand it.

Don’t worry – be HAPPY – and that’s the best message I can give you TODAY!

P.S. – In terms of results based motivation – there is NONE better than what I mention in “Eat More – Weigh LESS”. Hark on over here to see what the fuss is all about –

My swim workouts back in 1998
- An unique take!!

This is one of the “farthest” trips down memory lane that I’ve taken in a while – – but I’ll do so today!

Flashback to the year 1998, I believe – or 99, actually, hehe. Or no. 98 it was! The first recollection is always RIGHT …

I was in college back then – – a long haired skinny version (even skinner!) of what you see now, with very little muscle – – and not that much knowledge of fitness.

I’d walk all day long up and down stairs though to get to class – and then up and down four flights of stairs multiple times a day in my dorm building – – and would NOT take the elevators – – for whatever reason, so I’d stay fit.

I don’t know why – or if – this paved the way for my later hill climbing etc at the age of 23. Maybe it did, but I was 19 at that time, and one day I noticed I was getting “fatter” around the midsection than I should be.

That was of course thanks in no small portion (pun intended) to the SUDS – golden ones if you get my drift, hehe – – and of course the great “Southern style” food I ate on a regular basis. All great stuff, but not good for the waistline, and if I hadn’t been walking as much as I did back then without even thinking about it (usually with a book bag in tow) – I would likely have turned into a bonafide LARDASS – – more than what I did at a later stage in my life!

Often times I’d remember thinking “I wish I had a car” – – I didn’t back then – – but curiously enough, not having one was a blessing in disguise in terms of fitness. Hehe.

And one fine day, I remembered an exercise that had ALWAYS appealed to me – ever since my grandfather and I did it, that is.

I’ve written before about my morning swims with my grandfather in the past – -a  very poignant memory that has STUCK, so to speak – – and as the memory resurfaced, it was off to the apartment complex pool with me after class – daily – for a long swim!

Now, these pools were tiny. Certainly NOT the Olympic sized pools I had access to back then in the gym, but those were often crowded, so I’d prefer the apartment pools (although yes, I DID swim in the regular pool on occasion).

Now, I have spoken about swimming before, of course, and the great workout it gives you – IF done right, and most people do NOT do the strokes right – – and I certainly did NOT back then.

Especially not the breast stroke, which was the only stroke I did. For whatever reason our instructor (and even my grandfather at the time) taught us the “modified” version of the breast stroke which works well in an OCEAN – or RIVER – or for SURVIVAL – but not so well in a pool, hehe.

It was the version where you lift your head out of the water while doing breast stroke – NOT the best and most “fluent” and “ergonomic” pose in which to do it, and yet, I’d do it – – for at least 50 laps a day – – which in an Olympic sized pool would mean about 10 – back and forth (so that’s 100, actually).

I’d remember counting down the laps as I swam. Slow and steady. NO sprints whatsoever!

I remember sneaking into the neighboring apartment complex pools on occasion when the pools at mine were shut down and being asked to leave on occasion too, hehe.

I still remember a History professor that lived in the neighboring apartment complex whose name I’d often use as an “excuse to be there” and he knew it, of course.

I still remember the girls laughing (in a good way) as they walked on past. “One more lap, Rahul!”

And this workout – – believe it or not – – due to the sheer inefficiency of the movement was GREAT for the shoulders, traps and UPPER ABS.

And chest, of course. I still remember a friend saying “you have a deep chest, because you swim in that style!”

And while I learned all the correct strokes later by my lonesome, and years later, made SURE to teach my daughter the RIGHT way to swim – that still remains a very fond memory indeed!

And it got me in great shape – not the best – but great regardless – and yes – I’d often do pushups after my swim too – – albeit nowhere near in good form. 12 pushups was about all I did, and yet …

And that’s today’s trip down memory lane, hehe. I’ll be back again soon!


Rahul Mookerjee

P.S. – That workout got me the six pack I wanted – but truth is, it took a long, long time to get it done in terms of “how long I swam for daily”. And you, my friend – can get it in much shorter time if you know how, and I didn’t back then. I do now though – – and want to share it with you – – and HERE is where you can learn all about the patented workouts that WILL give you the six pack you want – –

“I wake up at 6 A.M. daily, because I have more time”
- Always more than one way to skin that cat, hehe

So, I was chatting with a lady from Shanghai the other day – a lady that enjoys outdoor exercise apparently as much as the next person, and she expressed interest in 0 Excuses Fitness.

“I hope I can buy your products someday”, she noted. “It’s a pity you’re not in Shanghai right now! You could train me!”

Shanghai, for those that don’t know is about a 12 hour or so train journey from where I’m at, and given the current COVID-19 MADNESS sweeping the globe (in my case it would involve a 14 day quarantine once I leave the province a.k.a state that I’m in right now in China and ENTER the other one – and then another one when I get BACK), I do NOT think I want to travel – anywhere!

And that’s just in China. As I’m sure you know, international travel etc has pretty much all come to a standstill, and while I’ve ranted galore about this, today won’t be one of those days. Hehe – although the rants are very well justified in terms of the global panic etc. Ah, but I digress again!

So, as I was chatting with her about her day (this lady is a high powered legal beagle, by the way – in one of Shanghai’s multi national companies), I asked her about her morning routine.

She’s the sort that generally gets to bed EARLY – and wakes up at the crack of dawn – or shortly thereafter.

“I have my own morning routine”, she noted. “Waking up early gives me so much more time to get things done!”

And that’s fair enough. LOTS of people, including my own wife says the same thing, while yours truly is the exact opposite, of course.

But not always, my friend. Not always.

I still recall those days when I woke up at 530 A.M. to go hiking in China – – in that mountain park I refer to so often.

It used to be dark and cold – – and there was not a SOUL out there other than me. In fact ‘twas so dark that I needed my cellphone torch to actually illuminate the way up those steep stairs … until dawn broke, and I was on climb #2 or #3, and folks started to show up …

Mike Tyson did his famous runs too at 430 in the morning, and there is a reason behind this!

On the other end of the spectrum, I’ve often written about way back in the day when I’d hike at night – after 8 P.M. or so on most days – and come back home and launch straight into a bodyweight routine shortly thereafter.

It got me in great, great shape – so much so that Brooks Kubik, he of the drug free 450 (I believe!) pound bench press (national champion in it), writer, high school wrestlers and much MORE featured me in his daily newsletter at that time.

“Rahul’s hill walking workout from China”, I believe it was titled, hehe, and I’ll have to ask Brooks if he still has that newsletter. I don’t – – several laptops since, and thus forth!

I still remember him asking me when I mentioned my routine to him.

“That’s great! Are you in the military!”?

And I responded in the negative, of course, but he asked for a reason – a very good reason. I’ll write more on that later, of course – – but here is the point I am making – there is no ONE way to success – – at anything, my friend.

There is YOUR way – NOT what the “experts” recommend in general, but a way that works well for YOU.

And this holds true for fitness too.

For instance, you might get on the System, and find out (as I did) that after a certain point, high rep pushup workouts work far better for you than high rep squats.

Or, you may find (again, as I did)  that on some days, ALL you want to do is bridging – and stretching.

Or, you may want to climb up to the top of a steep hill – – and do your exercises THERE – -as I did (again), hehe.

The key is to experiment – and find out what works for YOU, my friend.

Don’t get sidetracked by what others say, or recommend, or what the so called experts have to say. It ain’t worth it – not one bit!

Last, but not least, if this sort of thing inspires you – if WORKOUT memories, more than any other inspire you like nothing else (and they do some people) – I’ve put out a great little compilation on those right here –

You’ll want to check it out – definitely a steal for the price it’s being currently offered at!

And on that note, it’s adios for now. I’ll be back soon!


Rahul Mookerjee

P.S. –  This lady I am referring to has an insanely well planned day – written out – and while written goals aren’t something I personally do in my OWN life (for me it’s all mental) – they may work for YOU, my friend. Writing your fitness goals down – for example, the number of pushups you want to do DAILY – or the number of squats – or the number of steps you’ll walk – and so forth is a great idea, especially if you LOOK at that goal multiple times throughout the day. Try it, and let me know how it works!

P.S #2 – More such great tips are mentioned in the 0 Excuses Fitness System – including one on DEEP breathing that WILL change your life – and HEALTH – for the better! Get on the stick now – and find out what it is – right here –

“Annoyed when she’s here, and you miss her when she’s not!”
- .. Indeed a conundrum, hehe

A few “moons” or so ago, I remember asking my wife where my daughter was post lunch.

She was supposed to go play in her room thereafter, but turns out she suddenly disappeared.

No “Daddy, Daddy” cries, and as I finished my work, or continued it should I say, I wondered where she was.

I checked the bedroom. Not there.

I checked the living room – -then kitchen. No dice.

“She’s gone to play with her grandparents”, chimed in my wife from behind.

“Ah, I see”, I said. “I was just checking …”

“I thought you were busy, and said (as usual) that you weren’t to be disturbed!”

(and this of course is a point of ongoing debate in the house – Rahul when he is writing does NOT like to be disturbed no matter what – – and curiously enough, the time he writes is the time everyone wants a “piece of him”, and all the doorbells chime, and all the phones – – well, one at any rate ring, and …hehe!)

“Ya, but I was just wondering”

My wife giggled.

“You miss her so much the minute she’s gone, and when she’s here, pestering you, you get annoyed”.

Giggle giggle, and while it might have been the other way around, the point is true – and it STANDS.

Often times, it’s a battle to get my daughter off to school (pre-COVID-19 “cooped up” of course – – post it, she’ll be raring to go herself!) … and once we drop her off, we’re relieved.

“She made it on time!”

And a short while later, as we bask in the “peace and sanctity that abounds as it were” with a rambunctious six year old NOT around – – we miss her.

“Wonder what she’s doing”, I’ll often muse. “Probably up to some mischief!”

And the wife will chime in around 11, which seems to be school lunch time for the kiddies.

“Wonder if she’s eating everything I gave her”, she’ll say, while hunched over her own laptop.

Funny, but those of you with kids know it’s true, hehe.

And fitness can be much the same way.

It can be a BATTLE at times, for instance, to drop down and pound out 100 pushups and 200 squats when you’re busy – or hungover – or don’t feel like it – or whatever.

Even if you’re a fitness maniac like yours truly, getting up that hill multiple times a day takes WORK, and it’s sometimes anything BUT fun when doing it, especially if you’re doing it after a long, long day at work (and I should know!).

And so forth.

But you get it done – – and oddly enough, as you bask in the afterglow of getting another successful and GOOD one in – you’ll wonder about the workout.

“Oh, that third time up the hill was the best!”

“Oh, those table pushups really hit the spot!! Damn, I’m glad I got it DONE!”

And that’s what its really all about, my friend. Getting one good workout in after the other regardless of anything else – – and then “missing” exactly the same thing that was a nightmare a short while ago (not always, but a lot of times!)

And that, my friend is a KEY stepping stone to success in any field – – not just fitness.

Showing up – and just doing it – is half the battle won  – – and I might as well create my own meme on that, hehe.

Ok, my friend. That’s IT for now. I’ll be back later!


Rahul Mookerjee

P.S. – I used to show up DAILY on the hill, and look at the sort of shape I’ve gotten into . YOU TOO can do the same – – and follow the exact same routines I did, which are laid out in a concise, easy to understand manner for you right here – –

P.S #2 – Don’t hesitate to grab that course above, my friend. Its replete with workouts that will get you literally eating more – and weighing less – and if you don’t believe me – – well – – follow what is in there religiously for a coupla weeks or so – and then get back to me!!

P.P.S – For those of you that enjoy my daily stories – – stay tuned for a new product – – that contains MORE THAN a “blast from the past”, hehe. You’ll enjoy that one – – you won’t want to miss it! Again, stay tuned …

Fight – like an APE!
- ... and build APE like strength to boot!

So, I was talking fighting – – and self defense – – and everything related with a friend of mine – – guess who! – – a few months ago.

Yes, the ex-Marine I’ve referred to MANY TIMES – – and while we were knocking back a few brews, we got to talking about self defense, physical training, and just about everything in between.

And soon enough, as we started to get “three sheets to the wind”, as it were, my buddy stood up – – and got into a boxing stance.

And he punched – the cupboard right in front of him – and BOOM – – I would NOT be lying to you that that solid oak cupboard got more than a dent in it, if I might say so.

“Better watch out”, I said, laughing. “Don’t think you want Tracy hammering you after that!”

(The aforementioned lady being his S.O. – – and we all know that if there is ONE person you do NOT want to tick off, it is your significant other, hehe).

Anyway, the topic moved on to self defense, a topic my buddy knows more than a thing or two about!

“Rahul, you need to take advantage of your skills”, he suddenly piped up.

“Skills?” I queried. “I’m no way near a fighter as you are”, I remarked, and it is true, of course, hehe.

“You know more than you let on”, my friend said laughingly, and he then got into a curious “ape like stance”.

“You like doing pull-ups, and you’re good at them – – and you have a grip FEW people can match. While you might not be a boxer or even grappler – THOSE are your strengths”

“Once you get hold of someone, and PULL towards you – – as you did me a year or so ago – – they’re gone if you get ‘em on the ground!”

And there was more to this, but we then got into a fighting stance – – and started fighting (mock) “ape like” – – and if that sounds retarded, well, hear me out.

The style we were fighting in was PRACTICAL – – aimed at “taking the base” away.

Ever watched an ape fight, with those long, loping arms flailing about wildly?

If even ONE of those arms caught you “by accident”- you’d be DOWN for the count – if not worse, my friend.

Chimpanzees, for instance, have been recorded to kill adult MALE CROCODILES – – and if a baby chimp were to grab your finger- – and SQUEEZE – – you’d be screaming for mercy in no time!

Anyway, was a good ole time indeed as we attempted to knock each other “off base” – – and here is the point behind me saying it.

It’s well know than a strong GRIP is one of the things MOST required for grappling – – boxing – – as well as if you’re looking to get good in martial arts – – or – – in day to day life – – carry out activities like lugging heavy stuff around the house without any problem – – or carrying GrandMa up the stairs if she needs it, for that matter – – without collapsing in a heap!

I don’t know if I mentioned it, but many years ago I saw a massive, barrel chested man in an Italian restaurant with those “meat cleaver” forearms …

A waiter he was, I believe, and although he didn’t’ come out of the kitchen, my girlfriend at the time took one look at him and remarked “He is probably the one that does all the heavy lifting back there!”

And the point I bring all this up?

It’s because even if you aren’t interested in SELF defense (and who isn’t these days??) – – and even if you aren’t interested in “looks” or a “strong grip” per se – – training like the APE does can give you gains in terms of both strength – – and fat loss – – like you haven’t experienced before, my friend.

Pulling your own self up through space requires a degree of strength (especially abdominal) that you can’t build from pumping weights in the gym while seated, and certainly NOT on the asinine lat pulldown machine.

If you want the sort of grip – and traps – that will make even experienced men look at you and “nod” with that knowing look – – well – – then you have to train accordingly, my friend.

And training like an ape – – in other words – – pulling – – and doing the things an ape would in the wild will BUILD that sort of strength – – and how, my friend. And how … and the conversation I have just quoted above as well as others in the past, is PROOF of this.

Get them long, strong and FLEXIBLE levers – -with shoulders and traps to boot – – and an upper body that looks like it’s made of steel by following the various progressions I lay out in the courses on pull-ups – – all YOURS in a “compilation format” – right here – –


Rahul Mookerjee

P.S. – These courses will literally take you from a “human” level of strength to EXTRAORDINARY, almost SUPER HUMAN levels of strength. If any of what I’ve said above interests you, and it SHOULD – well – click on over RIGHT NOW – –

“If the whole world were to stop moving for 4 weeks”
- ... it isnt so much if as it's already happening!

Well, well, well! Woke up bright and early around 930 AM on this here Sunday morning for a change … and of course, what do I see on my phone but some more Coronavirus related nonsense.

Now, some of you at this point familiar with my rants on this might call me out for calling it “nonsense”, and fair enough – but really – like I’ve said before – YES, the pandemic is serious – -but I really do think the entire globe is OVERREACTING ON a very GRAND scale – and this too after the “horse done long bolted”.

Sure, containment is necessary, but what are all the global lockdowns really accomplishing other than fueling mass panic everywhere?

It doesn’t seem like the rates of infection or death rate for that matter are slowing any – – and in China, the one country where everyone “claims” the pandemic is “almost over” – – well, two of the most populous provinces are STILL under lockdown (complete) – – and the rest of the country is pretty much still in a state of “emergency” as it were.

I really don’t want to get into politics here, but Donald Trump’s comment about lockdowns really having the potential to ruin a country’s economy struck HOME. Seems he’s one of the few world leaders that is looking at this through a pragmatic lens, as opposed to a lens clouded with myopia and fear …

And I just heard that cinema halls in China are shuttering again due to a fear that the virus could “re-occur”.

And on that “sage” note, I also read an article this morning where a Chinese professor (Dr Zhang, if I recall correctly) made the comment about the pandemic “might be stopped” (emphasis on might) “if the entire world stops moving for 4 weeks” – – a possibility he dismisses himself as being highly unlikely.

And he goes on to say that if this does NOT happen, then the pandemic will continue – – likely for two years – – and likely “switching between the northern and southern hemispheres based upon temperature changes”.

As for yours truly … upon reading that I took a deep breath, and drank some tea – -and shook my head.

While the good Prof might be right – – or wrong – – the FACT is this folks  – – that the FLU, for one, has been around for ages.

NO, I’m NOT saying the COVID-19 is the same as flu – – obviously NOT – – but the fact is that we lose thousands of people annually to the flu – – which happens every year – – and I don’t see the entire world shutting down or even losing sleep over it??

Again, no, I’m NOT comparing the COVID-19 to the flu, but really – – what have global lockdowns achieved on a grand scale?

I’m all for global “social distancing” for a period, and also for allowing workers in certain businesses to work remotely – – and so forth – – but triggering a global shutdown leads to nothing but PANIC and uncertainty – as it has in India apparently, where the world’s second most populous country was shut down completely on a FEDERAL level (this following STATE WIDE existing measures etc)  – – with but four hours of notice.

I mean, come on. Four hours of notice for a country wide lockdown???

And as for the entire world not moving for four weeks – – well – – – I hate to tell the good Prof, but that is already happening.

Judging by the amount of lard asses out there – a number that is GROWING, amazingly enough – despite folks having TIME To workout  – – and exercise … it would seem that the limited movement that most people engaged in globally (think parking your butt on a car seat, getting up, then on an office seat, getting up, then back on the couch, getting up, dinner table, bed, and so forth …) has been limited even more.

Is it any wonder then that this virus is taking more lives – – as folks mental and physical health goes to utter RUIN?

And amazingly enough, that seems to be “in thing” these days – – for folks to sit around on Twitter and complain about exactly that as opposed to DOING something about it.

My my my. What has the world come to, eh?

As for yours truly, I just got down with a 100 Hindu squats and 75 pushups. A short workout indeed, but one that left me BUZZING – and RARING to go – – and I’m waiting for a WEIGHTED jump rope I ordered to show up, hehe.

I’ll be sure and write about some workouts with that puppy once it DOES – believe me now and trust me later, it adds a LOT of “weight” to your existing workout, hehe.

Alright, my friend. I’m out for now. Stay safe – stay sane – and stay RATIONAL!


Rahul Mookerjee

P.S. – I can’t force you into anything ,of course, and neither would I want to – – but if I could exhort you to do one thing – or two – it would be this. One – – MOVE – – at home, and keep MOVING. And two – stop reading the news – – or if you do, read it, and let it simply “pass on”. The world could do with more rational minded and fit folks … if THAT happen in a four week time frame (right!) – – guess what – – it won’t just be this virus that disappears – – a host of other issues will too!

“She used to be known as a bird when she was young”
- ... for good reason!

‘Twas the ETERNAL battle at the dining table the other day.

… what battle you ask?

… Well, the battle between my wife – – and my beloved daughter who along with her many, many GOOD habits – – seems to have picked up a few BAD ones as well.

One of them being dumbphone addiction, but that’s a global problem, affecting kids everywhere.

The other, and more PERPLEXING issue is during mealtimes.

No matter how tasty the food is (and by her own admission, and by MINE – – my wife’s cooking abilities likely FAR, FAR surpass that you’ll see at most five star hotels – – and I am NOT kidding!) … it’s a battle to get her to chow down.

This is a problem that hasn’t affected other kids her age, who seem to eat everything in front of them with gay abandon as kids should … and have massive bellies, saggy asses, and are OBESE, plain and simple … as kids really should NOT be!

But it brings me to a point I’ve often made.

Kids these days exercise – – and MOVE about way less than they should. I’ve often said the T.V is the main culprit, and it IS – – but the dumbphone is even worse.

Anyway, I heard my wife tell my daughter the other day during one of these battles “When I was a kid, I used to be known as a bird!”

“Why”, asked my daughter in a sage maner.

“Because I’d flit from point A to point B, always moving about – -never sitting around!”, she replied.

“And when it was time to EAT … boy oh boy, I’d not only gobble EVERYTHING on my plate – – but I’d snack healthily between meals … and”, here she paused, reminiscing, “I’d often even steal food off my grandpa’s plate when eating with him!”

My daughter giggled, and the conversation went on, but again, upon hearing of this, it got me to thinking.

While my upbringing was unfortunately (in a physical sense) NOWHERE near as “free” as my wife (again, physically – – I was always told to ‘sit down and be quiet and read’) .. it was nowhere near what kids these days experience.

(NB – Reading is fantastic, and is probably a reason I’m writing books today, but believe me, kids need more than just mental stimulation as do adults!)

Kids these days move about SO less that the natural hungry feeling that most kids have is suppressed – -and that’s not good, my friend.

And when they do eat – – what they eat turns into lumps of LARD – – at the tender age of five even I’ve seen…

My, my my. A battle to eat? For us, even myself, it was always a battle to NOT eat! Hehe …

Then again, we weren’t raised in the dumbphone generation.

And while I didn’t have a good example to follow in terms of fitness when growing up (as I’ve mentioned before), my wife did – – and the results are apparent and there for all to see, and that brings me to my last, and most important point.

Setting a good example for your kids is PARAMOUNT.

If you flop down in front of the tube after a heavy meal, belching and farting (and believe me, that isn’t so far removed from the norm as you may think!) – – guess what the kids will pick up on.

If you, on the other hand go for a long walk after a meal, and pick up a book immediately upon your return, or do something constructive – – well – – again – – guess who and what your kids would “ape”.

The 0 Excuses Fitness System, for one is packed with exercises that kids ENJOY – – and that gets adults and kids alike into the best shape of their lives – – you just have to DO it – – and set the right example!

Sadly, in addition to the dumbphone menace out there, most adults do a piss poor job at that.

And while it aint my place to “convince”, it DOES behoove me to tell you my daughter enjoyed pushups from a very young age – six months or earlier!

I’d often get her on the monkey bars when young – – and she’d often do situps on the dipping bars.

She’d often fall into a bridge as a game – -something that will give most adults the workout of their lives …

And the reason she did this was NOT because I forced her – or my wife did – or because we even brought it up.

It’s because she learned – – by example – – and if there is ONE good example you can set for your kids today – it is this – crack open the 0 Excuses Fitness System – – and get cranking on the workouts right there and then in front of them!

Chances are they’ll join you – and be HOOKED – for the rest of their lives – -and at that point, my friend, you’ve not only made a meaningful impact upon your own life – – but the future generation as well!!

And that’s the “lesson” for today. I’m off – – I’ll be back soon!

P.S. – Here is where you can grab the best fitness system there is out there – the 0 Excuses Fitness System – – right here – –

P.S #2 – And if your S.O. (or you) is a GREAT cook – and you’re worried about gaining weight (and let’s face it, we ALL are at times) – – well – – remember that this worry is baseless so long as you’re on the Eat More – Weigh Less routines. Grab your copy – – proof included – – right here!

Triceps like steel BANDS
- ... Are they necessary? Read on to find out!!

While the biceps and shoulders are the first thing that come to most trainees minds when we talk about ARM training – – a very important part is often overlooked.

A part of the arm that literally makes up more than 75% of the arm – – that being the TRICEP muscle.

You know, the muscle at the back of the arm that really gives the arms it’s strength – – and size!

That all important muscle which helps in pushing – – and just about any daily activity – – as well as (and this will SHOCK most of you readers) in pull-ups, that exercise which ALL men want to do, but pitifully few can.

That muscle which tuns to mush the quickest with inactivity … a.k.a. “bingo wings” (that ugly looking flabby part of your arm that “shakes” when you wave goodbye to someone for instance – – IF you’re overweight and unfit!).

Other hand, look at any really fit man – or REALLY strong man (and I mean real strong men – – such as the old timers) – – and you’ll notice modest yet well shaped biceps – – but massive, yet well shaped horseshoe like triceps … literally a mass of muscle behind the arm which gives the arm both its shape and size – – and also it’s STRENGTH!

As Percy Longhurst, old time English commentary legend once noted about the Great Gama from India, who did THOUSANDS of pushups and squats daily as part of his training regimen (and went undefeated in over 50 years, by the way!),

To watch him doing the dipping exercise was a revelation. There was power put into every movement, up and down…It was easy to understand, watching the regular rise and fall of the smooth brown body, the bending and straightening of the rounded limbs, to what extend not only the arms and the shoulders, but the muscles of the chest, abdomen, back and loins participated in the vigorous execution.

One could understand how Gama had acquired the enormous bulk of solid flesh at the back of his upper arms; whence came the wonderful size of the muscles around the shoulders and the base of the neck. Smooth, solid muscle; muscle in bulk; yet again I must repeat that when Gama “set” for example, his arm, his fist clenched, that acute outlining of the individual muscles on which the enthusiastic physical culturist is wont to pride himself, the ‘steel bands’ and ‘hard knots’, beloved of the lady fiction writer, were conspicuous by their absence. All one was saw was a rounded swelling, a smooth prominence here and there.

But there was strength, an abundance of it, in those smooth and supple limbs. Anyone who saw Gama overcome Dr B.F.Roller could be sure of that.”

And if Gama had this look about him … well, I have THIS to say my friend – – while the headline of this email says “steel bands” – – REAL STRENGTH does NOT – I repeat – DOES NOT – come from muscles being tense and “showy” – – read “fake and counterfeit modern day bodybuilder muscles”!

Real strength comes from muscles that are relaxed – – and look relaxed – – and can spring into action as and when required – – such as the Gama’s!

Or perhaps Bruce Lee. Or perhaps Mike Tyson – – or maybe even Michael Phelps. You get the picture, my friend – – none of them have the “boobybuilder” look, and yet, the strength in them muscles – – no doubting that, is there??!

On another note, doing pushups is a great great way to build up the most important muscles in NOT just your arm, but also those over your entire upper body – – but no, despite what you’re thinking, I’m not “pimping” my Pushup Central course here – – not as yet anyway, hehe.

There are plenty of ways to skin a cat, and tonight before dinner my daughter was pushing furiously against a wall.

“Push harder ,honey!” I exhorted her, and so she did, and a minute or so later, she came back – flopped down on the chair – – and took a sip of jasmine “blooming flower” tea!

“This wrestler needs rest!” she pronounced.

And what did she mean?

Well, Kiddie Fitness will make that very very abundantly clear – but for now – – let me just say this – – one of the tool the Gama used to develop his nigh prodigious strength was isometrics – – and as for the how’s , why’s and wherefore’s – – well – – be on the outlook for the course on ISOMETRICS.

That is course #2 “in the offing” after Kiddie Fitness, which by the way is DONE as of now. If you’re a parent reading this – mark my WORDS, my friend – you’ll want to get your paws on this right here – –

And that, my friend – -is the update for now. I’ll be back soon!

Saying it like it IS …
- ... and being UNAPOLOGETIC about it!

Was at it last night until 230 hammering out Kiddie Fitness, and doing a few posts for my other email lists.

Finally got to bed around 4’sih last night (believe me – – when you’re in BEAST mode in terms of writing, your brain refuses to switch off on occasion even after you TELL it to!) … and this morning as I arose around 1130 in the A.M, the first thing I did was to sip some “hong cha” (black tea, or red tea, depending upon how you look at it, hehe) … and get down to some workouts.

I did a brief workout consisting of Hindu squats and STRETCHES (you Pushup Central fans KNOW the stretches I’m referring to! Hehe) – – and I was ready for my day once I got a buzzing … or so I thought.

I don’t know why, but I couldn’t get down to writing and my other projects like I normally do, in “door shut, NO-ONE ALLOWED to DISTURB me or ELSE mode …

And then I did something I normally NEVER do. I got on the dumbphone and social media – – which I’ve often said and still say is a complete waste of time … and got involved in a discussion … about the … yes, you guessed it, the COVID-19 virus.

A discussion that started off with China’s latest decision to apparently ban ALL foreigners from entering the mainland – and a discussion that morphed somehow into “Trump being racist” because he labeled it a Chinese virus … and other related issues.

Now, I normally as I said NEVER get into debates such as this – pretty much because it’s POINTLESS – – especially in the polarized world we live in these days. NO-ONE is willing to even listen to what the other person is saying – – and that is fine by me, hehe. I rarely get involved in politics, and read as little as I can about this darn virus – – and I’m doing pretty well as a result. Hehe.

Anyway, ‘twas a heated debate and just for the record – – is ole Donald “racist” for calling the virus a Chinese virus?

I think NOT, my friend. We call Chinese food Chinese, don’t we? Well then why on earth wouldn’t one refer to a virus that started in China – – and that the authorities did all they could to cover up (by their own admission) as Chinese?

Doesn’t sound racist to me – – sounds like a case of saying it like it.

Now, before you fine folks on my list start jumping up an down about Trump and politics in general – – let it be known that I do NOT particularly care about politicians – – anywhere in the world. All feather of the same bird as it were, and they all flock together at the end of the day, and that is all I’m going to say about it, but I do know one thing – – Trump is a man after my own heart not because of his politics – but his STYLE.

He does precisely what I advocate – – say it like it is – – WITHOUT feat. Freely saying it like it is – is a skill my friend – – and not being affected by what others think of you is an even greater skill. Master that, and you’ll not only become FAR more productive in your daily life than you ever have been – – but you’ll also learn that people will follow you to the ends of the planet to HEAR what you have to say – – even if they don’t necessarily agree with you on everything.

Why – – because you give to them STRAIGHT.

And that, my friend is as honest (brutally honest) as I can get. And that’s what you get from 0 Excuses Fitness – -and ALL our products too.

As recent testimonials for our products show – -they flat out WORK – – and do NOT give you the chances to make excuses – – or be molly coddled (the exact opposite, actually).

Some get ticked off and unsubscribe from my lists, and that is fine. I am NOT everyone’s cup of tea and neither do I want to be – and neither should YOU, my friend. Be real – Be YOU  – – and that, at the end of the day is what really counts!

I did up a post precisely on that a while ago, but I can’t be bothered to find the URL right now. It’s there in the annals of the blog though – – do a search, and you’ll find it!

Alrighty then, my friend – – that is THAT for now. I just warmed up my writing chops with these here 900 or so words – – and I’m BACK at it – – Kiddie Fitness, to be precise.

I’ll be back again soon!

P.S. – Given the virus spreading around the globe – – the CALM and RATIONAL amongst us would do VERY WELL to remember that this virus really only strikes those that have LOW immunity. The BEST and only (IMO) line of defense is robust health – and good immunity – – and home workouts deliver all that to you, my friend – – especially in these uncertain times of “lockdown”. And here is where you can find the VERY best there is in terms of home workouts – –

P.S #2 – I spoke a bit about marketing and saying it like it is in the social media group I referred to. Funnily enough people responded by saying “No, that’s not how you market. It’s not about eyeballs! It’s about …”, ah, but I can’t quite control my chuckles here. Ill do up another post on that shortly – – stay tuned!

Stop worrying about what they “expect” you to do!
- - do what makes YOU happy - FIRST!

Dear Reader,

There are many things that separate the high achievers of this world from the “wannabes” or “has beens” – – the CREAM of the crop from the “herd” as it were – – the people that conquer all and get to the very pinnacle of their chosen profession or GOALS, and those that “meander along with the stream somewhere in between”.

Yada, nada, schnada. You get the point, I think, and after lack of persistence (for those in the latter category) another prime difference between ultimate success and lack thereof is this – folks caring too much about (and letting it affect them internally) what others “expect” them to do.

A most insidious means of sabotage this one is – – and virtually ALL of us have been subject to this at some point in our lives – -some more so than others.

Your truly fits in the “more so than others category” and for a large portion of my adult life, I did (hard as it might sound to believe at this point!) “sort of” care about what I was “expected to do” and did it … for a short while, at least, before my INNER MAN spoke up – – and naturally, when that inner man speaks – or ROARS – – you listen – -or at least I did!

Case in point being the numerous jobs I worked before going all out on my own. Truth is I NEVER wanted to work for someone else in the first place – – but the looks of astoundment accompanied with “You?? How on earth would someone like you amount to anything on your own?” held me a back for a long portion of my adult like – – before I finally said SCREW it – – and did what my heart (inner man) told me to do!

In “Outwitting the Devil”, Napoleon Hill mentions several instances from his OWN life when he was working for others (again, on the insistence of family and so called other well wishers) – – and in EACH one of those jobs – – despite the seeming outward successes – he ended up either leaving the job – – or the company folded – – or something to that effect.

It didn’t last, in other words.

In the bestselling Pyscho Cybernetics Dr Maltz makes a very pertinent point indeed – – and likes our success levels to a rubber band which is held in place firmly by none other than our subconscious mind.

If the subconscious truly believes that you can attain a level of success, but NOT beyond it – – then guess what – – you’ll attain that level of success – – and you may briefly rise above it – – but the rubber band will snap back to wherever the subconscious “thinks” you belong.

This is a truism that cannot be argued against my friend. If you subconsciously hate something – – and don’t want to do it – – then you may be “made to do it” for a while – – but it ain’t gonna last.

And funnily enough, these tales struck closer to home for me than you’d think. I made a seeming success out of many of my jobs (none more so than the job I refer to in the 10 Commandments of Successful Sales) – – and could probably have made a “career” out of any of those jobs – – which is exactly what everyone around me “expected” me to do, of course, and repeatedly pressurized me to do, and yet, what happened?

I think we all know – – and funnily enough, people seem to forget the great truism that is often mentioned in self help books and manuals alike – -that being – – TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST!

And what I am telling you is this – more than just “taking care of yourself first” – I’d say listen to yourself first.

Way too many people, for instance, start a fitness program but end up trying to accomplish goals set by others.

For instance, I would wager a bet than a lot of guys don’t necessarily crave big guns as much as they SECRETLY crave the lean and mean look, and yet – – due to public pressure and perception – – guess who they end up trying to emulate – – and what they end up ACHIEVING.

Someone starting a new venture, for instance, may start off full of enthusiasm  — which quickly falls by the wayside as the repeated admonishments and cries of “You’ll never make it” ring out louder than anything else in his or her ears, and pretty soon that person is back to square one – – or worse.

Tell the world what you’re going to do – – but show them FIRST – – and I just had to mention that here!

Do what YOU want, my friend – both in terms of life – and goals – and FITNESS as well. Stop getting suckered into and DERAILED by the “but you’re expected to follow so and so road” B.S.

And if doing what YOU want isn’t what others “expect”, well, goody – you’re probably on the RIGHT track.

Sure, blazing your own trail takes GUTS and I’d be lying to tell you that its “easy” or that the path is without pitfalls.

As soon as I decided to do my own thing all those years ago (and indeed even TODAY when I embark upon a new venture) – – it was as if the entire world was conspiring against me to “pull  me back into the fold and stop me reaching for the stars” (much like that solitary crab that manages to climb out of the bucket of crabs as the others stay IN).

I was called an idiot – a loser – a lunatic – and several things unprintable – – and still am – but guess what – – I have something that these so called other “successes” don’t – – that is HAPPINESS – FREEDOM – – and PEACE OF MIND knowing I’m doing what I love to do – – and will continue to do so!

Fitness wise, I’ve often been told I overexercise (huh??) – – and this by people that have never once attained any degree of fitness in their own lives!

I’ve been told my methods are ridiculous, and downright asinine (by folks who say that pumping 5 kg dumbbells for 15 minutes on each hand will make muscles sprout – – and those that claim long, slow walks are what it’s about when it comes to fitness).

And yet – the results – can we argue with the results?

I think NOT, my friend – – and that is what happens when you do what YOU want – the way YOU want – WITHOUT listening to the chorus of “bays” from the “herd” out there.

It may not always be easy. It may not always be the path of least resistance, and certainly probably not the path most traveled – and so forth.

But is it worth it??

Oh YES my friend – – and you’ll see what I mean when YOU embark upon it too!

So that’s today’s message. Do what YOU want – – and NEVER get pulled into asinine guilt trips of “doing what you’re expected to do” – – it is nothing but a recipe for failure and that too on a grand scale!

P.S. – In terms of fitness, the great part about the 0 Excuses Fitness System is that it matters NOT what YOUR goal is. Build muscle? Lose fat? Six pack? Better health and a robust immune system? Interspatial travel? And so forth. We’ve got you covered (ok, not the last one!)- – so fret NOT – – and click on over right here to grab your copy of the System – –

P.S #2 – I was actually advised by another supposedly well meaning family member to “seek counseling” with regard to what I mentioned about jobs before. HA! The subconscious mind always brings to reality what is IN it … and most of the times the opinions of the VERY same people that advocate counseling or other such methods with regard to you doing what you really want aren’t worth the bandwidth we’re spending discussing it here. Trust me on that one!

P.P.S – Oh, and by the way – remember that Kiddie Fitness is well and truly ON its way, my friend. If your kids are going batshit (NO PUNS INTENDED!!) insane during the enforced, extended “holiday” most of you are likely being subject to – well – get them started ASAP on these routines, and boredom will be a thing of the past. Contact me now for pre-orders and I’ll hook you up with a 10% off “special offer”!
