“You’ll never fit into …. “
- When someone says never - sit up - and thank them!

Dear Reader,

“You’ll never be able to get as fit as you were (X years ago)” (add mournful, “hangdog” look to boot).

“You’ll never amount to anything in life!” (said by a cantankerous woman who herself hasn’t worked a honest day – or day at all in her life ….)

“You’ll never fit into those old jeans again! ”

And so on and so forth.

If what I’m saying above sounds familiar – well it should – because that is precisely what happens when you “want” to do something – or achieve a goal – and announce your intentions to all and sundry.

Chances are excellent and second to none that you’ll hear this negative statement galore when you do so – which is another reason I keep telling folks to “do the thing first” before blabbing about it.

In other words, as Napoleon Hill famously said, “Tell the world what you’re going to do – but SHOW ’em first!”

Energy leaks and all that aside though, what if someone notices you, for instance, doing your best to get in shape – despite you not announcing your intentions to do so – and then making said (above) comments?

“You’ll never lose that belly of yours as long as you continue to …. ” (insert term of choice).

Well, anytime someone says something will “never” happen –  especially in terms of your goals – well – crack on a big smile – and THANK these people.

Chances are nigh excellent that if you FEEL something stirring DEEP within you – an ANGER – a red hot flame of passion determined to prove the naysayer WRONG – then he (or she) has just given you a rocket fueled boost along the way to whichever destination it is you’re aiming at.

And the word “never” doesn’t necessarily need to be uttered either. The negative intentions – or the negative “import” of the statements being made is what I’m getting at, my friend.

I still remember the comment my father made one night bellowing his lungs out in the living room we were in at the time “Look at you! Your obese! Your stomach is hanging over your pants! You’ll never ….”

Or, “You’ll die by the age of 30 if you keep up your eating and drinking habits (which admittedly were not the best at that point in time, but still!)”

Or my mothers scornful and derisive look in the eye at the age of 10 as she commented with a sly, knowing look in his eye “He thinks he’s too strong!” (at an age when practically all boys are trying to “too strong” – was that the best thing to have said? You be the judge!)

Unfortunately I didn’t know at that point that some of these statements, in retrospect were the BEST things that could have been said to me in terms of achieving my goals.

I still remember the red hot anger I felt when my father, corpulent by any normal standard, and perhaps even more “obese” than he claimed I was at that point blathered on an on about my weight.

A few years later, I still remember the shocked look in his eyes (as well as my wife’s) when they saw me in the best shape of my life at 36 …. six long years after the limit that had been “set”, hehe.

At the age of 10, I still remember making a silent vow to myself that my grip WOULD INDEED be the STRONGEST – or close to it – and here we are today, Mommy!

And it doesn’t necessarily have to be parents either saying this. In my case it was, but it can be anyone. Friends, colleagues, by standers – the biggest flaw in most people is that they do great at finding a bazillion and one excuses for not doing the thing – or for lamely announcing “why it won’t work anyway” – rather than getting down to brass tacks and DOING the thing.

‘Tis human nature, my friend. Not much that can be done about that!

As an aside, I just saw a comment on my wechat where a lady proudly proclaims (double chin jiggling as she does so) that her “biggest comfort” is Mc Donalds – and she makes sure that no-one misses the point as she’s got a brown bag of blubber inducing fries, “so called burgers” and an XL Coke sitting right next to her.

This from someone who keeps saying she’s overweight, and yet …

Ugggggghhh. What is the world coming to, hehe.

Maybe I’ll introduce Eat More – Weigh Less to her.

Or, perhaps I’ll just let her do her own thing until she comes to her senses and stops “pigging out” as it were.

Will it be too late by then? It never is, but one never knows either!

Anyway, so that’s today’s missive. If you’re on your way to superfitness – 500 squats – 100 pull-ups – whatever it is – and someone turns out and “you’ll never”‘s you – thank them profusely and continue on on your own merry way .

They’ve just given you the impetus you need – for free!

P.S. – I was told I’d “never make it online” – and my response to that has been very well documented indeed – as well as put together into an awesome, butt kicking BOOK – and several videos. Find out more right here – – https://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/

My new clothes “done dont” fit
- I'll be spending a fortune on clothes at this rate!

Dear Reader,

So a couple of weeks ago, I decided to invest in a pair – or two, specifically – of new jeans.

The old ones had been going forever, so I took the plunge and “did the thing” – and then of course, as I’ve written to you, I was struck by the “leg specialization” program bug.

Now, those of you reading this may be thinking – we know what comes next. Thighs and butt become tight, and he has to buy new jeans …

Well, not exactly – at least not the first part.

What happened over the past week – or rather, what I STARTED To notice over the past week was that my new jeans – which fit me fine before the “leg specialization” were getting LOOSER around the waist … and were sung as usual around the thighs and hips.

I also noticed my T-shirts getting “looser” in the chest area, and tighter around the traps and shoulders.

OK, so it might have been a silly decision to change tacks workout wise right AFTER buying new clothes as opposed to before.

Since the jeans were only two weeks “old”, I figured I’d try returning them but I perished the thought immediately after it entered my mind.

After all, I’m not much of a fan for the “wear and return to Walmart” policy many seem to have …. and neither are most of the sellers on TaoBao, China’s answer to Amazon (at least in terms of shopping).

Something prompted me to get in touch with the seller and ask, though.

“Just ask, Rahul”, the little voice urged me. “You never know!”

And I did – and lo and behold, the guy agreed not only to the return – but also to send me a new pair of jeans – one waist size less than the previous one.

And today, as I sit here in those very jeans, they’re starting to feel loose – again!

I mentioned my Eat More – Weigh Less workout yesterday – and then today as well – and as I promise everyone reading this and clients that are ON the mind bogglingly simple and result inducing program – you’ll start to see results within the first coupla workouts.

For many of you, you’ll see results during and after workout #1 in terms of REDUCED flab, specifically around the midsection.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to me, of course.

Back when I discovered these exercises in the mayhem of Lunar New Year 2018, I thought about putting together a course right there and then – but balked.

After all, what if they only worked for me? What if it didn’t work for others?

Silly questions I know, but I like to be 100% certain, and so I went ahead and put a couple of my existing clients on the program.

Within TWO workouts, BOTH of them saw results, and how. The lady in question dropped not one – not two – but THREE waist sizes within a few workouts, and that ain’t no exaggeration either.

So I put together the program – and judging by the feedback I’ve been getting, I never made a smarter decision.

Go here NOW to grab this program, my friend – there truly is nothing like that out there – but before you do so …

Here are some FACTS about these workouts that you might not believe …

These workouts …

  • Are probably the only ones where the “tough” portion of the workout takes a few minutes if even that, and you spend the rest of your workout “sauntering” around. Literally.
  • Today’s workout took me 15 seconds x8 sets – around 120 seconds – or TWO minutes. That’s right. A grand total of TWO minutes for the fat burning portion of this workout. The rest of it was sauntering up and down the hill, but note it wasn’t necessary by any stretch – I merely did it because of my love for the outdoors.
  • Are the ONLY workouts where you get to eat, drink and guzzle as MUCH as you like, and still make solid progress from workout to workout.
  • Are routinely pilloried by the mainstream “shemxperts” that claim they’re “harmful” to the body – so called experts that have layers and layers of fat upon them and haven’t done a single squat or hike in years (unless we’re talking the hike from the sofa to “el commode” as it were).

All of this might sound nigh unbelievable, but it’s true, my friend. It’s very true. And if you’re in the LEAST bit interested in burning fat and building muscle at the same time – and doing so at quantum, rock star, breakneck SPEED – then get on the program now.

Last, but not least, while I’m NOT condoning bad diets in any way, shape or form, I figured I’d do an experiment this week.

It’s well known that a lot of folks out there (guys in particular) like to go “bottoms up” at the local pub or watering hole on a regular basis – not to mention slamming down pizza and other fattening foods down their gullets on a regular basis.

No amount of “cajoling” from me would induce them to give this up – so – can YOU still make progress on this program if you’re one of the above crowd?

In a word – YES. Big time.

And to prove it, I’ve been following a similar sort of diet myself for this week, and my jeans are still looser than they were a few days ago. This binging and boozing ain’t gonna last in my case beyond this Sunday – but I’ll probably have proved my point way before then anyway, hehe.

So that’s the tale from 0 Excuses HQ’s. Lots going on – and lots more to come in the future as well. Stay tuned!

Hill sprints par EXCELLENCE!
- More on this excellent and most underrated exercise ..

Dear Reader,

So, I woke up this morning around 9 :30 A.M. or so. Grabbed a Tshirt, threw on my trusty sports shoes, and off I was to the “great outdoors” for my workout!

And great outdoors indeed it felt like in the park. Although this park can be jampacked full of people on holidays and even the weekends on occasion, bring in the slightest hint of rain, and the crowds are all GONE.

They don’t like their rain here in Southern China, I’ll say that much! And I don’t quite blame them, given the sheer regularity with which the rain buckets down here …

Anyway, was a bit of a drizzle outdoors this morning. Nothing serious. Certainly nothing to stop this cat, for sure, and off I went.

Sauntered up the hill once just for the heck of it, and then began my REAL workout … that said, this is the SAME hill that kicked me in the CAN the first time I climbed it (and many times after that!) and the same hill that kicks most people’s ass (regardless of the physical condition they’re in) the first time they climb it.

Easy for me now, and as I began my real workout, I felt a sense of exhilaration creep over me that I haven’t experienced in a long, long time – along with that “heart popping out of chest” sensation you get when you’re really, really winded!

And no prizes for guessing what I was doing, of course.

I was hitting that old favorite of mine – hill sprints – just regular uphill sprints, nothing fancy.

Hill sprints, my friend are one of the MOST useful exercises out there – not just to build muscle and burn tons of fat, but also to keep FEELING and LOOKING way younger than you are.

I’m almost 40, and I routinely have folks tell me I’m 25 – or around 28. Part of the reason for this is my 0 Excuses workouts, of course, but the other reason is hill sprints and other types of sprints that I talk about in Eat More – Weigh Less.

And if you’re part of the growing crows that has leaned out all over the body, but are yet to lose the muffin top and the bingo wings – or man boobs – well – hill sprints might be just the thing to kick your body into OVERDRIVE and burning those nasty fat cells where they’re the most visible.

When you sprint – or do hill sprints – everything SHAKES. Those nasty lumps of lard that don’t normally “shake” when you walk hills slowly, will shake BIG time when you sprint ’em – and this is one reason most people ignore sprints – because they might not be “comfortable” – but boy do they deliver results!

Bear in mind, the more you “jiggle and wiggle” it during your workout – the quicker it will disappear!!

Not to mention hill sprints are one of the quickest ways to REAL RESULTS. You’ll start to see results after the first few workouts – even if you don’t go all out – and for some people all it takes is ONE workout (with no change in diet) to start seeing results.

And just why do hill sprints work so well – and so amazingly FAST?

Well, because hill sprints- and sprints in general force your body into OVERDRIVE. 

You literally SHOCK your body into moving – and moving fast – and faster – and FASTER – and keep going for as long as you can at that pace – and this causes the body to produce some major league HGH, my friend – naturally.

This human growth hormone is what keeps you young, fit and STRONG – and is also responsible for addressing the hormonal imbalances that cause the modern day adult to put on weight in all the wrong areas.

Have you ever seen that dude who works out regularly, and isn’t what you would call far – but yet is unable to lose them man boobs – or saggy butt – – or lower belly fat?

Well, there are plenty of these people out there -and it’s HORMONES, my friend that play a major part in burning fat – regardless of whether or not you’re workout or not.

For men, the modern day diet and slovenly routines that most follow results in less testosterone – and more androgen (female hormone) – the exact opposite of the way it should be, guys!

And hill sprints and other HIIT training methods address this very well.

Your body will have no choice but to up T-levels, and those levels will stay elevated long after the workout is over -meaning you’ll be burning major league fat even AFTER your workout – not just during it.

How cool is that, eh?

Not to mention the increased focus, sense of calm, clarity and PURPOSE you’ll get from these workouts.

If there ever was a “cobweb duster” of a workout, this is it!

Last, but not least, if you think muscle growth occurs only “on the legs” – or the butt – as a result of these workouts, think again, my friend.

In fact, think several times.

You’ll be sprouting muscle ALL OVER YOUR body once you get on these routines. I didn’t do a single pushup or pull-up today, and yet my forearms, chest and traps are sore  – – big time!

Remember too, to exercise caution when you do this great exercise. I’ve said this often, but for whatever reason people seem to think “its just running” – and jump straight into it – which is a big, big mistake.

If you’re the average fitness trainee that pounds the pavement or miles on the treadmill – or the gym bro that pumps, tones, oils, and then admires his body in the mirror – chances are you’re NOT ready for them.

If you did ’em back in high school but never again for years and years and years, you do NOT just jump off a decade long or more hiatus on “el coucho” and start banging ’em out.

Then you have the people that CAN do these – but overdo ’em – or don’t warm up well before doing ’em. Both ways are wrong, and have the same ending – one that begins with a capital “D” and ends with a capital “R” – DISASTER – an ending you don’t want to hit!

Do them right though, and you will quickly start to see just how “easy” it is to melt fat – while eating more, if you so choose, with NO change in diet!

For more on this, grab your copy of Eat More – Weigh Less – and get started today, my friend.

I look forward to hearing back from you!

No pushups, no pull-ups!
- A sneak peek into my NEW exercise routine ...

Dear Reader,

Over the past week or so, I’ve developed and have been experimenting with a NEW exercise routine.

One that surprisingly enough doesn’t contain pushups and pull-ups as the mainstay!

This might come as sacrilege to those weaned on the 0 Excuses Fitness diet where I state flat out (and rightly so) that pushups are the best darn exercise ever – but hang on just a sec, my friend. Hang on.

I’ve not abandoned pushups – or any of the other stuff I teach just as yet. I stand by them just as much as I do before.

However, I’ve been working on a new program for the past week or so – one that specializes mostly on LEGS – hips, legs and calves.

I’ve stated often that this area of the body is the part to work if you want maximal gains over your entire body, and it’s true my friend. It’s very true.

And why did I want to jump on this “new” program?

Well, mainly because a lot of my clients that are plagued by weight issues are in NO shape to do more than 5 pushups – and sometimes not even 1 in proper form.

Yes, it sounds pathetic, and it is, but there are tons of folks out there for whom doing ONE pushup – or perhaps even 5 quick ones is a CHORE, my friend – let alone pull-ups – or some of the other stuff I espouse.

So, I thought I’d test these folks out on an intense LEG routine that they CAN do – one that will blast away them pesky love handles, muffin tops (ugh!) and reduce body fat in general so that they can THEN get on other stuff.

And being I test everything out first on my own body, it was time to do so this week.

Now, before I tell you what I am doing now, remember I ain’t no spring chicken myself. I’m close to 40 – rapidly approaching the age where one’s metabolism is supposed to come to a grinding halt, and yet, that’s not evident from my workouts, my friend.

Not one bit if I might say so!

Without further ado then,

I’ve been climbing hills – my favorite hill mostly -3-5 times per workout. While I do this though, I don’t just climb.

I mix in sprints – regular runs – and BACKWARD sprints – in with my regular workout.

This is straight out of Eat More – Weigh Less, by the way, and it WORKS, my friend – and I’m not even getting into some of the fat blasting workouts contained therein at this point.

I keep doing this until I’ve climbed that sucka 3-5 times, and then I stretch out in all directions.

After this, I do roadwork – on FLAT terrain.

And that’s it. Not a single pushup or pull-up – either before – or after my routine.

I did this 4 times this week, and I’ll probably go again tomorrow. So that’s 5 times.

On my off days, I might do a few pushups, or take a long walk. Nothing spectacular though in terms of the pushups, and the walk is done at a leisurely pace on flat ground.

And the results? How do I feel?

Fit, strong, hungry and RARING to go – – and if a 38 year old can feel this way after running up and down hills several times – so can YOU, my friend.

If a person whose body naturally gravitates to storing lard around the midsection can stay fat free – on these type of routines -then so can YOU, my friend.

Key thing to note is that the workouts stay INTENSE. It isn’t just a jaunt up that hill – it;s a lot more, my friend. A lot more, and you’ll have to crack open Eat More – Weigh Less to see exactly what I mean!

Now, as for crowning question that most of you will have.

Did I lose “strength” at all on this program thus far?

Well, lets see. At the end of my workout today I jumped on to the monkey bars and cranked out 10 consecutive swings back and forth – something that most adults would be hard pressed to complete ONE set of.

Then I banged out 10 pull-ups in letter perfect form as if they were nothing – and they literally felt like nothing!

No handstand pushups today, but that test was done a few days back – and again – no issues there!

It just proves this my friend – age is not a barrier – and your current weight isn’t either!

If you’re way too overweight to do pushups at a good cadence and high reps, then lose that weight first by doing LEG work.

As you do this, you’ll find yourself losing fat all over your body, and building solid MUSCLE all over as well – IF you do it right!

And the sky, of course, is the limit after that.

Get on it now, my friend. Its your health – and it is THAT darn important!


Rahul Mookerjee

P.S. – And while I have hills here where I live, I could just have easily used stairs – or subway stairs (even better). There literally are NO excuses my friend -none at all – so get on the train NOW – https://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/

Can women do 0 Excuses Fitness?
- Heck yes they can!

Dear Reader,

An interesting question – or comment – that I receive on occasion from my female readership is this – Can we ladies do 0 Excuses Fitness?

And while not always, it’s ALMOST always followed by the “I don’t think so. It’s too difficult!” comment.

I mentioned the case of Crystal, her with the recurring back pain in this regad a few emails ago, and she certainly isn’t the only one.

Now, interestingly enough, these same women do ALL of the following –

Pounding the pavement .

Yoga. (or a version of it, at any rate).

Dieting (sometimes extreme)

Calorie watching (to an extreme, almost always)

Continual “mirror gazing” (am I getting too fat?)

And so forth. Yet, when it comes to 0 Excuses Fitness, some of these fine ladies have the thought that it is “too difficult” to do – or even get started.

Well, I’m here to debunk this highly idiotic notion once and for all, my friend.

YES, my fitness System is AS applicable to your ladies out there as it is MEN – and even kids for that matter.

Many moons ago, I had a student named Carol who was trying to lose the excess flabbage around her midsection. She did most of the above mentioned things, but the problem wasn’t going away.

If anything, it was getting WORSE.

Being she had paid me upfront for private coaching, I put together a tailored plan for her – part of which involved hiking up hills regularly.

At the end of it, there were several stretches for the body that I often talk about in my emails – and get this.

At the VERY end of it, Carol would attempt to throw herself up into a handstand. At that point she couldn’t quite get it so I’d hold her feet as she’d kick up – but still – she would hold it for a fair bit of time – despite not being at her ideal weight.

We’d occasionally work out on the monkey bars, and I’d show her a few things about pull-ups.

And NONE of this affected her adversely. If anything it HELPED her – and why do I bring this up?

Well, because these are mostly all things that are thought of to be in the “male preserve”.

Especially handstands – and pull-ups – and I’m here to tell you nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, I’ve seen women do pull-ups BETTER than men do ’em (I’m talking about you “bros” out there) – and thats just a fact, my friend.

More to the point, here are the “problem areas” for the average gal out there –

Saggy chin (or butt). Bingo wings that “wave” when you do. Tummy fat. Thigh fat (huge problem for some women out there). And of course, “el glutenous maximus” – I’ll let you figure that one out yourself, hehe.

#1 – Bridging – along with a healthy dose of walking, jumping rope, and perhaps climbing hills – or swimming.

#2 – ANY of the pushups mentioned in the 0 Excuses Fitness System, except perhaps the Hindus (although holding the positions DO help and CAN be done safey). Especially the pushups you do on your BACK.

#3 – #1 and #2.

#4 – Hindu squats. Nothing tones up them thunder thighs better, faster and quicker than Hindu squats do – and they’re perfectly SAFE to do, ladies.

#5 – well, all of the above – and perhaps what I have NOT mentioned as yet.

Lots of women get caught up (as a lot of men do) in the “numbers” game here.

For instance, doing 500 squats in a session.

And while that’s all fine and dandy, it’s not REQUIRED, my friend. In fact both you men and women out there that need to lose weight can and should start INCREMENTALLY – and focus on PROGRESS you’re making DAILY as opposed to the big numbers.

Do that regularly, and you’ll soon find yourself at the bigger numbers before you know it!

Last, but not least, I’ll be posting some pictures of WOMEN doing 0 Excuses Fitness on my social media accounts. The proof is indeed in the pudding – be on the outlook for it!

P.S. – Here is another course that you ladies out there will LOVE. It even has pictures of my wife doing the exercises!

Corrugated Core

“Man you like a vampire”
- And more on energy LEAKS ...

Dear Reader,

A couple of days ago I wrote about folks wanting something for nothing – and how about ignoring this fundamental law of the Universe is NOT a good idea.

It seemed to be fairly popular as well with my Twitter following – was retweeted quite a number of times, and received a few comments as well – and for good reason.

And yesterday, this “client” contacted me again – with an even more ludicrous “something for nothing” demand – or request, in his terminology.

In short, it was this -apparently I was to use my credit card to book him a flight “home” (somewhere deep in Africa) – because “his card didn’t work”.

Now, I may be many things, to be certain.

Fitness guy. Writer. Coach. Writer on many other topics as well that I have NOT divulged here on this list. And more – – but travel agent I am NOT – and I stated this politely.

No dice. The guy kept on and on, so I told him I’d do it – but he’d have to pay my credit card fees, cross currency conversion charges, cross border fees et al.

You know how credit cards are – I hate using them – all the fees and what not – but being this guy was a “client”, I figured I’d make an exception if just to get him off my back.

“Ok, I’ll tell you what the total amount is”.

I calculated it, and told him.

“Around 10,400 RMB, my friend”.

His response was nothing short of “amazed”.

What?? It’s too high! The currency conversion was only 8800! And so on and so forth he went …

I ignored him, and later on during the day he sent me this.

“Man you like a vampire! Someone did it for less than 9000!”

Now, I write this NOT to bring up the fact that charging what you feel you’re worth – or a fair bit for your “personal services” is NOT something that classifies you as a “vampire” or anything like it.

Neither do I write it to tell you that this client was way, way “off base” in his interactions with me. If anything, I should have just blocked him right there and then – but I didn’t.

And since I’ve already written about getting something for nothing, I’m not going to go into that again here.

For a brief minute I was tempted to reply to him, but then I remembered the eternal, evergreen saying.

“Never get into a piss fight with a skunk”. 

And so I refrained. Probably the best thing to do and now, why am I bringing this up again?

Well, to address the topic of energy leaks, my friend

When you set out to accomplish a goal – any goal – be it life related – or fitness related – you have to be VERY careful that you’re not allowing your inner “vital” energy to “leak out”.

By energy I mean your DESIRE. Your DRIVE. Your sexual energy too if I might say so (Napoleon Hill had a whole chapter on this in Think and Grow Rich, and it’s a topic that I’ll address in a future email).

Ever notice how sometimes you talk about people to your goals -at length – in detail – and then after the conversation, you feel the urge to just sit back – and do – precisely – NOTHING?

That feeling of “having gotten it off your chest” and suddenly actually doing the thing becomes less important than it was BEFORE you spoke to said people …

Or, when you’re dealing with clients – or people in general (an example would be the person I’m referring to above) – a sense of your “energy” leaking as the other person leeches off you as much as he/she can, and tries to get something for nothing in every transaction?

Both of these cases are example of energy LEAKS ,my friend, and they are far more common than you’d think.

When I have a goal in mind – fitness related – or business related – I generally never ever tell anyone – not even my closest friends or my wife.

Funnily enough the only person I’ll share some of my inner goals with is my 5 (soon to be 6) year old daughter – and why?

Because every time I do so, I feel a sense of unmistakable enthusiasm and desire to ACHIEVE gushing through my veins – as opposed to a “ho hum” lethargic feeling of “ok, there’s no real need to do this anymore”.

In short, and in a nutshell, a lot of times talking to people and “telling them what you’re going to do” subconsciously takes the place of actually doing it – resulting in a big fat ZERO for you in terms of actual RESULTS, my friend.

Sure, there might be some cases where you’d want to talk about the things you want to achieve, but make darn sure that you feel the desire to do MORE after talking to said person – not LESS.

Make damn sure too, that the other person is on board in terms of being positive – and an open mind – and everything else in between – because if NOT, the negative energy will find a way to affect YOU too, my friend – and that ain’t good!

So, takeaway from today’s email?

Well, first off, the famous Napoleon Hill saying –

Tell the wold what you’re going to do, but SHOW ’em first! 

And second being this – plug your energy leaks, my friend.

If it’s people constantly badgering you wanting something for nothing, DROP them from your life.

If it’s folks constantly “wanting to know” what your fitness (or other) goals are – politely refuse to answer.

And so forth.

The key thing is this – take note of how you FEEL after talking to people – and keep ONLY those people in your life that uplift you and make you feel BETTER – and more energized – as opposed to the opposite!

Remove what you don’t want, and make place for what you DO want, my friend.

It’s just that simple!

It was 2 AM, and my core was a SCREAMING!
- and my abs were on fire....

Dear Reader,

Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

My abs were SCREAMING yesterday – both during my workout and after.

Now, the first part of that isn’t necessarily strange and should NOT come as a surprise for those of you that have been following this list for a while.

Given my penchant for extreme conditioning and what not, my abs are always being pounded like raw meat throughout my workouts – – but yesterday, oh boy. I FELT it – big time – and LONG after my workout!

And what do I mean by this?

Well – get this – I woke up at around 2 A.M. last night – and I literally screamed out loud in pain.

My abs were on FIRE – especially my left side – and it felt like a giant claw had taken hold of the “six pack” area, and was squeezing it dry for EVERY drop of blood it could.

That was a bit of a gothic description, I know, but you get the point!

Man oh man. I’ve had these cramps before – such as thigh cramps in the middle of the night, for instance, but THIS was something else altogether.

While I can normally get cramps to calm down relatively quickly (for instance, I often have them in my calves after extra calf work), it took me a full 15 minutes to even start to get back to normal last night.

Whew! That was a ******* experience to be damn sure, and I can STILL feel the entire area this morning – as in, it feels like someone took a sledgehammer to my midsection and pounded it to pulp.

Needless to say, that was a great workout I had yesterday, and it shows as well.

While I’m not saying you can see tangible results after every workout (in that a flabby midsection miraculously turns into a six pack or more) – you CAN see results – minute results – if you really, really hit it hard daily. You can literally see your body change – before your very eyes!

Anyway, so what did I do to get this ab pounding effect?

Well, first off, I pounded out a ton of handstand pushups -something that I’ve oddly enough – and again – NOT been doing for the past coupla weeks.

Don’t ask me why – but as I’ve said before, we often end up ignoring what has worked well for us in the past. ‘Tis human nature and tendency to do so, and I’m not an exception to the rule either!

Handstand pushups are thought of as mostly upper body work by most – and what comes to mind when you think of this is gargantuan TRAPS – and massive arms – and of course mammoth PECS.

None of this is wrong, of course. Handstand pushups do build that area, and more – but what is often ignored is the CORE building effect of this excellent exercise.

Just getting up into a handstand and holding it for time taxes your core far, far more than traditional core exercises do – and if you don’t believe me – well – DO the thing – and you’ll see!

Just be careful not to overdo it when you first start. You need to progress slowly – but surely – and in Shoulders like Boulders, I’ve mentioned the progressions you need to work upon as you get better at this truly superlative exercise.

And the other thing I did was what I spoke about yesterday – that being the “dancer’s stretch”. My oh my, that exercise REALLY hits the abs and lower back – – and again, you’ll know what I mean when you DO them exercises!

So that’s it for today, my friend. I’m off in a while for my workout – and I look forward to seeing YOU there as well!

A “crunch” for the lower back
- And it sure does work!

Dear Reader,

Those of you that have been on this list for any length of time are aware of my utter disdain for the much vaunted stomach “crunch” – as well as gadgets that mimic this action, and their so called effectiveness in either building strength in the abdominal region or lose fat.

Or, in a nutshell, to get that six pack we all want.

If there is ONE exercise I could label as the #1 useless exercise of all time it would be the crunch.

Well, on second thoughts – no – the lat pulldown would probably be #1 – but the crunch would be close behind!

And while there are far, far more effective exercises you can do for your midsection, that isn’t what I’m talking about today.

I’m going to talk about the lower back – a bane – and a source of unending frustration and pain for most people – and yesterday, I took my lower back routine to a new level altogether.

I normally bridge a bit after my hill climbs to stretch everything out, and it feels great. And truth be told, this is all I’d need for my lower back – and yet – yesterday – I went one step further.

I pulled out an “old trick” from the book, and I did an exercise I hadn’t done in a LONG time -an exercise that really blasts those pesky love handles and fat around the lower back and waist.

Ladies, if you’re reading this, listen up – this might be the ONE thing you need to tone up that area as well.

So, what did I do, exactly?

A picture is worth a thousand words, and while I’m not the sort to take smartphones along with me as I exercise, I’ll have someone take a photo for me the next time I do it. For now, words will have to suffice!

Well, without further ado … the first thing I’ll have you picture is this – the yoga posture where you stand on one leg (ramrod straight) and extend the other back as far as you can – ramrod straight again – and HOLD the position.

Some prefer to make the “namaste” sign as they this. Others simply hold their hands out in front of them.

Whichever it is, that is a PALE imitation of what I did.

What I did was a dancer’s version of this stretch. I put my back leg up on a railing and while you might think the support made it easier, you would be dead wrong, my friend.

What I did in this position was keep my upper body straight – lean back – and really SQUEEZE them lower back muscles – and voila!

Man oh man, I could feel muscles ALL over my lower back working – like they hadn’t in AGES – and remember, this is from a guy that bridges regularly!

In fact, I cramped up a coupla times before I could get it right – and once I did, I breathed deeply and HELD the posture for what seemed like forever.

Once I was done, it felt great – and it also felt like someone had hammered  and squeezed my lower back with a pair of tongs, hehe.

This is just ONE of the great exercises out there that you can do to reduce fat – not just around the stomach, but the  obliques and lower back too – an area which you can’t see – but an area where a lot of fat tends to “hide” if you get my drift.

More on this in Corrugated Core – 2 – – which I’m putting together as we speak, but for now, you ask?

Well, there’s plenty of things you can do for your lower back right NOW, my friend.

A combo of Hindu pushups and bridging would be one – you’ll be stretching your back and spine out in both directions, and you’ll feel GREAT once done.

Or, simply do the “best darn exercise ever“. This one exercise alone is all you need to do for the entire body if you do it right – and if you do – for those that do – you know what I BE talking about, hehe.

Reverse pushups. Table Pushups. The list goes on and on and on, my friend  – – and I’m off to do some of ’em myself now.

Back later – as always, thanks for reading – and if you workout today – make it an awesome one!

“Well, it’s either that or stay a lard ass”
- And more on trying to get "something for nothing"!

Dear Reader,

So, over the past few days I’ve been going back and forth on the phone with a customer – NOT fitness related.

It’s an old customer back “from the days” in which I still did I.T. work on a regular basis – building websites, so to speak, for those interested.

This customer was a lot of “trouble” from the get go, if I were to be honest. While he’s certainly a good man – he has NO clue on how to do business – and his constant response to any sort of price – or any sort of price tag is “can it be lower”?

He’s also involved in a startup, and while I certainly (more so than  a lot of others, I’d say!) understand the costs etc involved – the fact of the matter is this – and I’ve said this to him multiple times – that start ups simply incur costs FIRST and profits LATER – and that is just how it goes!

In other words, you have to give before you get. There is no escape from this Universal Law of the Universe, my friend – and while I’ve advised my customer on this many a times, he seems “not to get it”.

Even worse, he responds with this “Rahul, you’re good at making deals! Your deals have many layers embedded into them!”


What do I think of this?

Well, I take it a as a compliment, my friend. I’ve never once known a successful business person that wasn’t excellent at making/cracking complex deals – perhaps my customer does – but I don’t – and I doubt any of you reading this do either!

Those that know me in person and through these newsletters know me as a brutally upfront and honest person. If it has to be said, I’ll say it. There’s certainly no beating about the bush with me and that is how I do biz as well, my friend.

Perhaps that isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I’d rather that than “play games” as it were if you get my drift.

And of course, all this brings me to the famous Napoleon Hill saying with regard to getting something for nothing.

The one who tries to get something for nothing usually winds up getting nothing for something. 

Sage words indeed, and as true today as they were back when Hill penned them.

Now, what does this “got to do with” fitness, you may ask.

Well, plenty, my friend.

There are scores of folks that simply  want a “magic solution” – or a “one stop fix it all” for their problems – fitness included.

I recently received a note on LinkedIn inquiring about how I lost weight.

“Through exercising right”, I responded. I’d normally be a bit more verbose, but I could tell the person wasn’t really interested in buying a product – all she wanted to do was “leech”.

“But thats too difficult for me”, she whined.

“Well, it’s either that or staying a lard ass”, I quipped.

I then sent her to the 0 Excuses Fitness System page – and true to form, no purchase.

Ah well. No skin off my nose to be sure!

So always remember folks. You have to give FIRST – before you GET – and there is NO such thing as something for nothing.

Remember this little bit of philosophy and USE it in your daily lives – and be amazed at how fast you start progressing towards your goals!

Thoroughbred LEGS
- The true "seat" of a man's power ...

Dear Reader,

If there was one body part that you can instantly spot on a man (or woman, for that matter) – a body part that screams out RUGGEDNESS and overall STRENGTH – and health – or all of the above in one package, I’m sure you could guess which it would be.

And just in case the title of this email isn’t a dead giveaway – well – it’s them legs, my friend.

Legs and hips (and butt) – and while there are those that could make a very good case for the neck and forearms (and rightfully so) – nothing quite trumps a pair of massive, well muscled (or sleekly muscled) legs and butt in the overall “development” department.

The legs (along with the neck and forearms) are obviously a part which you can’t conceal in clothing.

Boobybuilders that look massive from the North end all try and wear them baggy jeans to conceal the “stork legs” – but it doesnt work to be honest.

And it works in reverse too. If you’ve got a solid and well developed,  athletic lower body – it’ll show.

In fact, it’ll show so much that even if you’ve got a little extra padding around your waist, that well developed lower body will give off the impression of being “not fat”.

That’s not to excuse excess pudge anywhere on the body of course, but I’m just stating the importance of well developed legs in terms of overall health and fitness, my friend.

As I climbed up the mountain today (and indeed, as I do these days) – people looked at me – and their gaze instantly swept “downwards” (NO, not there!) as I kept powering up the hill, leaving others in my wake.

One step after the other. Steady, solid steps uphill, with nary a false breath being taken – and if you can do that in extreme heat and humidity, and keep going for ages, well – then you’ve got a well developed lower body!

This, of course is part of the new “specialization” program I’m on these days. While I’m still cranking my upper body work, my new goal is to build an even more rugged pair of legs than before (legs and hips) – and so far, the work seems to be showing for sure – as evidenced above!

And more than looks – it’s about health.

Find a man with a well developed chest and upper body, and I’ll find you one with an even better developed upper body – and stork like legs that give out on a hike – or friendly walk up the stairs, for that matter.

Other hand, find me a man with a solidly developed pair of legs, and I’ll find you a man that is STRONG – overall!

Sure, there are fat folks with well developed legs – but these tend to be the boobybuilders at the gym cranking out squats with heavy weights which does very little in terms of reducing fat around the core and midsection – and on average, you’ll see that most folks with a well developed core and legs aren’t fat.

The hips and legs constitute over 50% of the muscle mass of the entire body. Work them hard, and you’ll automatically gain – ALL over your body.

And it’s amazing, but true – we hear all the hoo haa about “chest day”, for instance, but I’ve never once heard either the bros or the “average Joe” scream with delight at “leg day” – even though the latter brings huge gains in terms of the former!

Sure, building legs like I’m talking about is hard, hard work – but it’s worth it – in spades, my friend.

And apart from the overall health benefits, NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING beats the CONFIDENCE you get from walking around on legs like these – legs that scream STRENGTH, MUSCLE and brute POWER to all and sundry.

Legs that can seemingly go forever. Legs that can hike non stop. Legs that can jump rope non-stop. Legs that can … ah, but you get the picture, don’t you?

So if there is one takeaway from today’s email, my friend – it is THIS – train the hips and legs like you mean it.

Your body will thank you for it – in more ways than you ever thought possible!

P.S. – Walking uphill is a great way to build the legs. So is jumping rope and running sprints. And of course, that eternal favorite – Hindu squats – which can be pounded out by the dozen and more right in your living room.
