So, woke up to some great feedback today for my book on pushups – – the new book that is – – and it truly IS the most comprehensive book out there on pushups that I’ve put out till date (and to be honest, I’m yet to see any OTHER book with this many variations on pushups etc).
And bear in mind these are all (well, mostly) pushups done on BOTH arms and BOTH legs. I DO have a few where you use one leg at a time, but for the most part, I haven’t even gotten to the “one armed” training manual as yet – – but hey – – more on that below!
Now you grip fanatics out there might be wondering what the grip part is all about. I don’t blame you – – and without further ado, let’s jump into the email I received today (in the early AM, hehe) from Charles, a long time customer and REGULAR reader of this daily newsletter.
(This was with response to the email I sent out last night about “What a Chinese dude can teach you about working out”. If you haven’t seen that one – – check the blog – – its posted there as well).
Good story! Got your new push up book off Amazon. Very impressed! Was a little hesitant due to the price, but once I got it I was not disappointed! Just like all the other books I’ve bought from you in the past It’s great! If I’m ever able to master the fingertip versions of all these push ups I will have hands like sledge hammers and fingers like steel! Keep up the good work, and start working on a book of training unilaterally, one arm, one leg, etc. I look forward to this in the future. Using various progressions, you will truly build incredibly powerful indestructible human beings.
My response – –
Great hearing back from you – – and good to know you got (and are enjoying) the book on pushups as well. Thanks for the positive review on the book, as well as the rest – – do leave a review on the Amazon page (for the book on pushups, as well as any others you might have bought and liked) – – reviews help to “spread the word” as it were!
(Ditto if you buy anything directly off the site – email me your feedback in that case!)
Yes, the “one limb” workout book is definitely in the plans – – stay tuned for that! The closest I got to that in THIS book was the “one leg in the air” pushups (both torqueing and otherwise) – – which alone is enough to give the majority of trainees the workout of their lives if done correctly – – but yes – – the “one limb” training course is IN the works – – once again, be on the outlook for that in the future!
With regard to hands like sledgehammers and fingers like steel – – you’re NOT far off the mark. The great Bruce Lee did fingertip pushups all the time (I mentioned this in the book I believe) and so did Dan Hodge (who was reputed to have a grip so strong that he could literally snap a pair of pliers with one hand – – and would regularly crush APPLES with his bare hands at the “ripe young age” of 75+!!). Work up to them with care though – – some of the hand positions are tough even to get into and HOLD – – so start from there (on your palms) and work up. Yet another good way would be to get good – real good at the palm versions of these, while also working in fingertip HOLDS and “mini-reps” for the same exercises.
Keep working ‘em assiduously, and you’ll soon have the fingers – nay, CLAWS of steel that you (correctly!) refer to in your email!
So, there’s some great, great feedback, my friend – – and if you haven’t yet grabbed Pushup Central – – now is the time to do it – – and HERE is where you can do it – – https://0excusesfitness.com/pushup-central/
Also, for all those of you that have bought from me in the past, and CONTINUE to do so, please DO send me feedback such as Charles has, and several other customers have as well. We always enjoy hearing back from our readers and customers – – and please DO sign up for our daily list as well.
Several of you have invested in our products – namely the 0 Excuses Fitness System, and then have RETURNED to purchase other courses (the courses on pull-ups, and the “Eat More – Weigh Less” course, as an example), but have NOT signed up for the newsletters.
Normally, I’d set it so that customers are “auto signed up for newsletters”, and that is what many folks do, but I’m a bit hesitant to go down that route, as it is, after all, at the end of the day, YOUR email address. I’d rather YOU sign up for the newsletter and provide express consent to me to send you daily emails – – it works best that way!
Third, and not least – – there are some valuable tips in that email I sent Charles – see if you can spot ‘em! One of the tips is something I rarely give away in my daily emails, but I’ve done so now – enjoy!
Fourth and last (but not least, hehe) – – the “one limb” training manual is ON the way. Believe me, that is for TRUE fitness fanatics – – doing one arm pull-ups or pushups (and I’m just talking about the REGULAR one arm stuff) is NOT for the faint hearted.
You’ll see what I mean when I come out with the course – – but for now – – feast on Pushup Central – – it truly has everything you need in order to get a complete workout in – – both now – – and for the rest of your lives!
P.S. – By the way, email issues sometimes make it hard for me to contact you, so if you’ve sent me an email – – and I have not responded – – it could be that my emails aren’t getting through – – or yours aren’t to me. For instance, I was unable to send Charles a reply from my normal account so I had to switch to another – – and so forth.
It happens – – especially with the amount of spam out there, so that is definitely something to bear in mind as well!
P.S #2 – Another course that has got RAVE reviews is the 0 Excuses Fitness System. This is a “two book” course along with five VIDEOS – – a must have for every serious trainee. Grab it right here – –https://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/
