Exercise can be – and IS – cathartic

Dear reader,

Yes, you read that right. Exercise can be, and IS cathartic. And I’m living proof of this in MORE ways than one.

I’m not going to get in “more ways than one” here, but I’ve already spoken at length in previous posts about having “goals” in mind while training. As I said before, these need not necessarily be fitness related goals – although it’s even better if they ARE fitness related for most folks out there.

Key thing being your already comfortable with the movements though – as I said before, if your not that comfortable with the actual movements themselves, then you will naturally need to focus upon the BREATHING and the movement itself before anything else.

Anyhow, I focused upon a series of VERY PERSONAL goals today while working out.

And while I’m NOT going to detail those goals, let me just say they CUT deep in more ways than one.

Let me just say that a lot of what I was focusing upon (while working out) literally made me emotional – so EMOTIONAL that I actually shed tears during the initial portion of my workout, after which it was back to biz as usual.

Now, the majority of folks reading this might think what I wrote above is strange, but let me tell you, the goals that you DO ACHIEVE in life are things that you are PASSIONATE about.

Things that you CARE about DEEPLY! The reasons don’t matter – what matters is you really, really, really CARE.

My self help books on the site  and other sites speak at LENGTH about this, of course, but for now, let me just say it was a great, great workout and I finished in 1:10 (10 minutes taken to compose myself after the “emotional” part).

Fitness wise, what does this mean?

Well, simple –  and TWO SIMPLE questions will answer that question.

ANSWER HONESTLY!

  1. Do you REALLY care about getting fit?

2. Are you REALLY willing to DO WHAT IT TAKES?

Think about this long and hard.

And if the answer is yes to BOTH of those (and what should be) SIMPLE questions, well, then congratulations – your in the minority that at least DOES – DOES SOMETHING. The vast majority of folks reading this would probably “cop out” at this stage if asked these questions in a “brutally honest” manner like I just asked you.

No, saying yes to EITHER ONE of them does NOT count towards being serious. You need to be in it ALL THE WAY – or not at all ,my friends.

There’s no cop-outs. No excuses. A desire to do plus hard work is ALL there is, and that’s just how it is.

And the workout itself? 400/254, and no, there’s no reason for those numbers as opposed to the usual “50/250, or 250/250”.

Thats just how it went, and the majority of the routine actually was a “22” routine if that makes sense (and if you have been following my blog regularly I am sure it does) .

And I feel great, great great! Got some more books planned for later on this evening, and I’ll probably get started on one later.

All for now -back later!

Best,

Rahul

P.S: – My books are all available on the website. There’s only ONE that is EXCLUSIVE to Amazon, but I’ll be putting that on here as well by December. Stay tuned!

The Book

Slow and steady …

Dear reader,

Well, the title  may come as a surprise given I ALWAYS advocate “quick’n’dirty” workouts – and rightfully so, because they a) WORK and b) they don’t allow you the chance to make excuses.

The “8 minute” workout I wrote about a few days ago is a prime example of this. Busy, you say? My goodness, everyone has 8 minutes, don’t they??

And if you don’t have even THAT much time – well – a serious re-evaluation of priorities and your LIFE is in order, my friend. That’s just the bottom line.

As I’ve said many times before, health is wealth, and that old axiom DOES hold true.

And no, this is NOT about getting rich. I care not if your looking to get rich – good health is an essential component of getting the most out of LIFE itself – and even my most ardent detractors, naysayers, “gym (selfie) addicts” etc will be nodding their heads in agreement upon reading this.

So thats the “fast and furious”part, but sometimes, just sometimes, you’ll find that “slow” workouts are just the “pick me up tonic” you need after or during a brutal day.

Last night was one of these days for me. My initial workout was along the usual “45” minute lines, and and then it was time for workout #2.

Now, workout #2 as I’ve mentioned before is usually a quick’n’dirty 10-15 minute “easy” (for me) routine which keeps the blood flowing, my mind clear, and my focus ever sharpened.

But yesterday, I turned this into an half hour routine and no I wasn’t focusing upon the actual time … I was focusing more upon the actual exercises themselves.

I had a day from HELL yesterday, and so the ONLY thing I wanted to do was to focus upon the movements and my breathing – and though I do that anyway, I wanted to “slow things down”, and REALLY, REALLY focus upon said things.

Sort of like a slow, meditative version of 0 Excuses Fitness if I may say so.

As I moved through the motions, I did so fluidly – but not “ultra rapidly” if you get my drift.

The ocean waves gently lapped at the shore as opposed to the “swift” back and forth “pounding” that usually happens.

I focused on every muscle, every sinew, and every DEEP breath with EVERY movement.

And when I did get to the bridging part, I didn’t do 2-3 sets as I normally do. I did ONE giant set – but I mixed in a whole bunch of stuff in there – and I really, really, focused upon the MOVEMENT itself.

Toweled off, took a long shower, did some mental exercises (that I talk about in my various other publications available here: – Others)

A quick dinner, and off I was to bed and BOY do I feel GREAT this morning!

So thats something that I do – not often, but occasionally depending upon the situation.

Try this little tip when your ultra stressed. Try it when your having “one of those days”.  It works a hell of a lot better than the ole “beer and pizza” routine, hehe.

Let me know how it works for you!

Best,

Rahul

P.S.: – Pizza is actually not as  unhealthy as it sounds IF – and only IF – the ingredients used are right. Unhealthy food is fine once in a while for a “treat”, but NOT the majority of the time.

Follow the right diet 99 percent of the time, and allow yourself an indulgence every so often and you’ll do just fine.

And as for the ideal diet – well – you can learn about it right here: – https://0excusesfitness.com/others/simple-and-effective-diet/

P.S. #2 – More on the “slow and steady” part … a good exercise routine is like putting money in a piggy bank. Those little DAILY deposits add up over time, slowly and steadily … Key thing being to DO something EVERY DAY without fail!

Thats a golden tip by itself – for more, well, you know where to go – https://0excusesfitness.com/the-book/

The circle – and the “vicious circle (cycle?)”

Dear reader,

I often structure my workouts in a “circular” sort of manner so that I sort of finish off with the same, or similar exercise that I started off with.

Works great for me but this is not one of those things which is “written in stone”.

How did I get this idea? Well – simple – some of the movements I do could be considered “circular” motions insofar as the actual execution of the exercise goes, and that suddenly gave me the idea one fine afternoon while doing pushups.

And it just “feels right” on some days, and so forth. Again, thats not written in stone, although it’s something that probably WILL work well for you in some regards.

But today’s post is more about the “vicious circle” or “vicious cycle” as it’s commonly referred to.

I sort of think “circle” is a better way to describe it as you quite literally go “round and round in circles” and end up exactly where you started right back off. Or, perhaps “cycle” is? Except in this case it might well be called cycling backwards …

Now, what exactly am I “ranting” about now, you may ask?

Well, I’m talking about the vicious “cycle” that a lot of folks find themselves to be stuck in (think hamster on a treadmill) and – REFUSE to get out of (or should I say refuse to be “open” to getting out of it).

Now, it’s not so much these people’s “fault” as it is their “unwillingness to learn new things”. Or, should I say the “fear of accepting the unknown as a current possibility”.

That last sentence I just wrote is a powerful, powerful one indeed, and as with  much of what I say it applies to LIFE as well as it does fitness.

But let’s talk fitness here.

I get contacted routinely by a lot of folks who want to get fit, but aren’t willing to take the actions required to get fit.

 

Those actions being simple enough – a) invest in the products that will move you on towards your goal and b) DO the thing.

“Oh, ah, I don’t want to…uh, buy”.

“Ok, no problem. Follow the blog – there’s plenty of FREEE tips for you there!” (and that IS what I tell folks that for whatever reason email me saying “they dont want to buy” – a colossal waste of time indeed for someone to even send that, but whatever).

And lets be honest – ain’t nothing with free tips, is there?

A few days later …

“Uh, I …”

“?”

“I couldn’t find <stutter> time to read the blog”. “It’s too long”. Yada, nada schnada, and the nonsense keeps pouring out.

And at this point I pretty much tell them to a) get their ass in gear if they REALLY want to – or b) stop wasting time.

And of course, thats the point where the “how dare he” part kicks in.

It’s far easier to live in denial of current facts than it is to actually confront said facts rationally (and NO, what most people consider “rational thought” is anything but to be honest).

It’s far easier to “ignore obvious truths and reality (yes, it DOES bite – though it doesnt HAVE to be that way!)” and simply pull out the oft used excuse “I’m busy”.

It’s far easier to pay a personal trainer and then “moan” or “whine” about optimal results not being achieved.

It’s far easier to get a fancy membership at a gym or “health club” and then rarely use it – and then complain about “not being able to get fit”. Or “it not working”.

It’s far easier to … Ah, but I guess you see my drift? Long story short – far easier to “shoot” the messenger as it were than actually do what it takes to “keep the messenger away”.

Curiously enough though and in terms of the “I’m busy” rubbish; these same “busy” people make time to be on Facebook and other TRUE TIME WASTING apps all day long. Yet, amazingly enough they’re too busy – when – get this – one actually responds in an honest manner to questions THEY ASKED in the first place!

I mean – look – I got in a BALL BUSTER of a workout yesterday in LESS than 9 minutes! Are you telling me you ain’t got 9 minutes to workout but you’ve got all day to while away looking at the various meaningless updates on Facebook?

I mean, this is so ludicrous and hilarious that I  literally spit up some of my green tea while I’m writing this.

I’m sure you see what I mean by circle now? This just keeps going round and round in circles, with no solution being reached – and NOT because the solution isn’t there – it’s because the person is NOT OPEN to the solution which is RIGHT THERE in front of him/her!

Back to fitness – buy the book. Watch the videos. DO. START someplace! THAT is as simple as it gets, folks – and THAT is all that is needed.

I was contacted a lady last night who complimented me on my physique and then COMPLETELY RUINED it by saying this (when I sent her a note of appreciation for her positive remark) –

“Don’t thank me. Thank God”.

“Huh???”

“Thank God for giving you this wonderful body that you have now!”

“Huh??????????????????????????????????????????”

I mean Jesus jumping Christ on a pogo stick; it literally doesnt get any more ridiculous than this. 

I (and any other person walking the face of this planet that you might consider to be successful in ANY endeavor) did NOT just get to where we are because someone dumped a plate of goodies in their lap!

Yet, amazingly enough thats how most people react when they see success. Amazingly enough they ignore the facts (which in my case are clearly laid out on the website) and continue to live in denial (of the fact that THEY too can achieve this!).

It just takes a small change in mindset, my friend – but that ONE change is ENOUGH to open up new possibilities and avenues in your life that you never knew existed.

A small minority of people reading this will know what I’m talking about. For the rest, well … All I can say is that if you disagree “no problemo, amigo”.

And I really dont care if the majority of people reading this disagree with it – that’s just how I am. I say it like it is and am willing to back up what I say – but, I am NOT going to “make the horse drink” after “leading it to the water”.

And for the lady thats probably reading this right now (or later, haha) – and yes you know who you are – that last sentence is for YOU!

Onward – and UPWARD!

Rahul

Workout #3, and some more updates

Well, the first thing I’ll get into is the workout obviously.

Those of you that “did the math” with regard to the last post know that I got in about 245 squats and 160 odd pushups (am I right?) in TWO BRIEF – SHORT – and INTENSE workouts this morning!

Took a total of 26 minutes or so, and if you can’t make THAT much time to exercise, my friend, well – then – you really need to sit down and think about the negative impact this has (IS HAVING) on your overall health.

Let’s not even get into fitness, strength, “building wind”, flexibility etc – just your HEALTH.

If you can’t make 15-20 minutes daily to be “health time” – but can make plenty of time for everything else – then something is seriously, seriously WRONG.

Anyway, my own workout #2 lasted yet another 20 minutes (though I didnt time it EXACTLY as I wasn’t “as” pressed for time this time around). 100 pushups followed by a few stretches and some bridging – and I was DONE.

Thats a total of 260 odd pushups for the day, by the way. Not to mention the other things.

All done in less than 50 minutes and truth be told, every ONE of those workouts was a bull buster by themselves.

On other fronts, I’ve received quite a few inquiries from customers in mainland China where “paying via QR codes” is the order of the day.

So I goofed around with the site for a couple of hours and did finally get it all integrated – and then promptly removed what I had just enabled.

Why – because it makes things too darn complicated.

Perhaps it’s how I got it done that is making it complicated, and perhaps I’ll add in a dedicated WeChat/Alipay payment method in future (for those in mainland China).

However, and to be honest, Paypal allows mainland Chinese users to shop online with debit cards anyway – and being that’s the mode of payment I’m currently using – well – YOU GUYS have NO excuses either!

And that, my dear reader, is that for now. Be back again tomorrow!

Best,

Rahul

Rahul’s “Fibonacci” sequence

Dear reader,

Schedule be damned. Rain be damned. I figured I just HAD to make another 20 minutes…

And so I did. My own version of the “F” starts with “<20” as it took me around 18:09.

15, 25, 25, 15, 85.  I’ll let you do the Math.

I think I mentioned somewhere in this blog about being good at Math “back in the day”. The esteemed Doc who I mentioned in that particular blog post would probably be rolling over laughing if he saw this now.

Smart dude, if there ever was one.

Back again later! In the meantime you can either ONE of TWO things: –

  • Make excuses NOT to train
  • Just do it.

The choice is YOURS, my friend.

Rahul

P.S. – The smart choice to make is to get the videos along with the books. I can tell you so  much more in the videos than I ever could in the “written courses” – Videos

The 8 minute workout!

And  BEFORE I TELL YOU what this entails, here is a bit of a primer.

I’m NOT at home – where I normally train. I’m indoors (thank god – it’s bucketing down outdoors – btw, y’all that are reading this from Houston, and apparently FL soon – and Southern China as well – I feel for ya, believe me).

The TV was blaring at full volume. Noise galore. Hardly the place to train without distractions, eh?

To top it all off, I am REALLY pressed for time today, and did NOT even have 30 minutes to train (literally running with my ass so to speak).

The vast majority  of folks would probably be like “Oh, thats not a good time to train”. “Oh, we’ll get to it later”.

“Oh, thats just a day missed – no problem!”

And so forth. Excuses galore, and reasons NOT to train – reasons NOT to get her done as it were.

And in the amount of time that it takes people to formulate (and then put in action – curiously enough a lot of folks are more than willing to put “negative” thoughts and plans in action without a second thought) – guess what.

I got a great one in. I’m sweating like a fat man at a dance.

Here’s the routine.

50 regular squats.

15 jumping squats.

30 “R”

30 “J” (I’m on a phone now and can barely type with all the sweat beading down my brow)

30 “R”, 30 “J”, 38 “R”, and 22 “J”.

You do the Math and add that up and tell me what it comes out to.

Try this one for size the next time “you dont have time”.

Guaranteed to KICK your butt, and if it doesn’t – well – I’ll be a “horse’s ass and monkey’s uncle rolled into one”, packaged and delivered (with a red bow for you  ladies out there) to your DOORSTEP.

All for now! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention I’ve been getting a lot of interest about this from mainland China so I’ll be working on adding in QR codes for payment (thats how they pay for most things in China – the land where the smartphone RULES). Stay tuned.

Socket errors, and more on what I said the last time

Well, I’ve been tearing my hair out for the last few hours trying to get this “thang” to auto-post to Facebook (Twitter was a cinch), but I still (apparently) have not been able to get it done.

I’m getting “socket errors” and other weird stuff no matter what I do, and I’ll call it a night on that front for now.

Good thing is though that I finished workout #2 a while back BEFORE starting this whole process,  or my own sockets would be completely jammed by now – NO PUNS intended, hehe.

As it stands right now – it’s “just one of those things”.

AARGGH!

Anyway, as an addendum to what I said in the last post about sometimes hitting personal reps, what I should have also said is often times your “mental self” can push you WAY BEYOND what you think the physical can accomplish, and therefore the “PR’s”.

But, there will obviously be a lot of times when your body does tell you that “it’s enough”, and this despite everything else I’ve said in the last post.

All that stuff about goal settings while training DOES HOLD TRUE – but with the slight mod in that though you might well end up getting a new PR SOME DAYS without really focusing on the number of reps – other days, you might not.

Thats just the way it goes, of course.

Anyway, given the length of the last post, thats it for today – or now, at any rate. More later!

Rahul

P.S. – If you have not grabbed your copy of the book already – WHAT are you waiting for? https://0excusesfitness.com/the-book/

Focus upon goals during training!

Dear reader,

I’m so ZONKED (my own euphemism, by the way) and those that have been following me for any length of time know what that means.

In short – ZONED out – and could care LESSSSSSS about anything else if you get my drift – and again – thats something you have to experience to really understand, both a mental and physical level (and no we’re not talking meditating for 7 years as the esteemed Bodhidharma is reputed to have done, although that requires some serious FOCUS!)

The title of this post started out as “keep your goals in mind…”, but after writing that above sentence I did something I never ever (or rarely) do – I EDITED – and changed it to “focus upon…”

Now, today’s post may come across as a series of “disconnected rambles”, but it’s really not if you read between the lines. For those that do, I applaud ya … for those that don’t … well … that’s life!

Anyway, today’s workout started off with an extremely sore back and (surprise) legs as well although I’ve been doing no direct work for the legs at all. No hill climbs, no “500 squat” days, nothing of that nature. and yet, my upper back, traps and thighs felt like they’ve been HAMMERED when I woke up this morning.

In a good way, of course, and thats likely why I did my 100 squats today in sets of 50, with 3 to 4 seconds rest between the first and the second set.

100 wasn’t a goal, by the way. Neither was some of the advanced stuff I have been doing for the past few days – that said though, there’s absolutely nothing wrong at all to HAVE those goals – in fact, a lot of you SHOULD start to set some goals – and NOW!

This post also (and again, this was unplanned) curiously enough ties into what I said about not needing pull-ups earlier this morning. Strange how that works, eh?

Anyway, one of my current goals has literally ZERO to do with fitness, as well as money – its something else altogether. Something that impacts me at the very BOTTOM OF MY HEART. Something that CUTS DEEP – something that MATTERS.

While I’m not going to detail that goal here for obvious reasons, I will however say that THIS goal is what I focused upon today during my routine.

Yes, this may sound a bit strange given I constantly tell you to focus upon the reps and your breathing – but I DID focus upon those as well.

The breathing is key by the way – in fact I should say I focused upon my goal with EACH INHALE AND EXHALE!

Read that part again. EACH INHALE AND EXHALE – yes – it’s THAT important to breathe correctly!

Now, bear in mind that you do need to be at a somewhat advanced (or least not beginner) level when you incorporate this technique into your routine.

Why, you might ask?

Well, because like I’ve said before, some of you will have trouble even GETTING into – let alone HOLDING the positions I show in the book and videos – and get this – for more than a few seconds, IF AT ALL.

And then of course we come to performing reps in CORRECT form.

So it’s obvious that you have to “do the thing” at a certain level first, but once you get there – incorporate this technique into your routine – and watch things start to FLOW in EVERY area of your life.

I find wrestler pushups or “Hindu pushups” as they seem to be commonly called to lend themselves best to this. Up and down, up and down, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale… This, and the “table” pushup are what work best for me in this sort of a “mood”.

And purely fitness wise, you might also find yourself achieving record reps while “not focusing upon the number”. Thats a great, great and oft-ignored tip – and I’ve achieved many a record number without even focusing upon the number itself.

And I DID end up setting another “PR” in my all time favorite exercise today – NOT the wrestler or “table” pushup BTW – although those are great, great exercises if done correctly.

Rationally speaking you might say goals in other areas of your life have NO co-relation to fitness  – and if your amongst the scores of people that say this – well – I have THIS to say – YOU, my friend, are UNEQUIVOCALLY WRONG!

In a rational world, the 0 excuses fitness videos would never have gotten made in the first place as the lady who took the videos speaks NO English, and I speak VERY little Chinese.

“Try, try, try”, is a phrase she commonly uses, and this one tip alone CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE, my friend.

Thats not to say I didn’t “try” before – but I’m just trying to tell that “rational” thinking is NOT the be all and end all of everything as it’s commonly made out to be. It’s REQUIRED – but it’s NOT what “gets the engine going”.

And that, my friend is that for now. Long enough post – ADIOS – for now!

Do I need pull-ups?

Dear reader,

This is a question oft-asked by those that come to my website, make a purchase, etc etc.

“Your book mentions pushups repeatedly, and a LOT of different types of pushups”.

“You extol the virtues of pushups – but though you’ve got a Chapter devoted to pull-ups in the book – you don’t particularly “push” (no pun intended) pull-ups as much as you do the good old pushup”.

And so forth.  I’m paraphrasing there, but I’ve received plenty of comments along those lines in the past, and I’m pretty sure I’ll continue to receive them in the future.

And my response?

Well first off, do you NEED pull -ups to “hammer the upper body until it can’t take it any more”?

My answer would be a NO, and my own results bear testament to this. ALL you need is pushups and done correctly – they’ll give you a FAR FAR better workout than pull-ups every would.

Does this mean pull-ups are a bad exercise, though?

Absolutely not! Pull-ups are great, and I used to do a LOT of them in the past (I worked up to doing 100 daily at one point in time, along with other supplementary grip work).

But, I found out that it wasn’t NECESSARY – and that I could get BETTER results by doing pushups – and get this – in LESS time.

The key though, is the type of pushups you do, and HOW MANY you knock off – and – perhaps most importantly, KEEPING AT IT.

I haven’t done a single grip exercise in MONTHS now. My forearms are NOT, I repeat, NOT huge by any stretch of the imagination – and yet – I have a level of grip strength that most gym goes, and even a lot of athletes (and NO – that is NOT an exaggeration) would be hard pressed to match.

None of that means pull-ups aren’t great though. They’re great – and if your goal is to knock off, say, 100 pull-ups daily – well – go for it!

All I’m saying is you don’t NEED them.

Last, but not least, NO, although pull-ups and some other supplementary exercises I’ve used in the past WILL build a grip along the lines I’ve mentioned above – again – you don’t NEED them.

The good ole pushup is ALL you need.

Let me repeat that – the PUSHUP is ALL you need!

With all that being said, there are plenty of folks out there that want to improve their pull-ups as a “goal” – and I’ve put out a course dedicated especially to this in the past. I may re-publish this in the future HERE – stay tuned!

Or, just rifle through 0 Excuses Fitness until you get to the section on pull-ups. That’s really all the info you need in that regard.

For now though – bear in mind that the main exercises I mention in 0 Excuses Fitness are ALL you need. Work on those for a while, and THEN go test yourself on pull-ups.

I think you’ll be amazed.

All for now – back later.

Best,

Rahul

The BANE of modern day living

Dear reader,

What is the one modern invention that is the very BANE of modern day living, and that I (despite having to use at times) – absolutely DESPISE?

It’s NOT the computer, by the way, for those that are thinking it is (given my constant refrains of being “chained” to the keyboard – thats something I ENJOY). Computers (and the Internet as well) were a great, great invention.

While laziness, “procrastination” and many of the other things all feature high up there on the list – guess whats even higher up there.

It’s something that most folks (at least most I’ve met) can’t seem to do without, much like they can’t do without breathing in life giving oxygen.

And it is – none other than the – hold your breath – the almighty SMARTPHONE.

If there is ONE thing in this world along with chemical weapons that I’d suggest be “dis-invented” (or was it “un-invent”?)  I’d say  it should be the smart phone.

I’ve NEVER EVER come across a greater productivity killer than the smartphone, and this holds true while working out as well as for life in general for that matter.

I’ve lost track of the number of times (back when I still paid the darn thing any serious attention) that I was about to write something, or had some ideas, or was simply going to get something accomplished when that annoying “green light” on the smartphone flashed, signalling yet another (and for the most part) useless “IM” or some such junk.

And of course, I ended up losing track of what it was that I was doing.

I’ve written about this extensively as well in my other publications, but as for exercise? Well, you see plenty of folks that use the smart phone as a workout accessory and this is one of the VERY WORST mistakes you can make, period.

Why?

Well, because your attention is not on your workout. It’s on the latest “going ons” on Facebook, or the “latest message” from that “hot chick you’ve been texting”, or the latest “emergency at work”.

Yada, nada, schnada, and once that workout is interrupted, it is usually never resumed given the propensity of most folks to be “lazy” (especially when doing tough stuff).

My suggestion would be to, and what I DO is to completely IGNORE the damn thing anytime I do something of any note, be that writing, or exercising, or simply “thinking intensely”.

I don’t just ignore it – I flip it over on it’s “stomach”, hehe, so I can’t even see the annoying little lights blinking nineteen to the dozen.

And guess what – I’m still living!

Now, that doesnt mean you ignore the world, period – NO – but there’s a time and place for everything, and that time is NOT when your “in the zone”, if you get my drift.

Anyway, all of this basically boils down to DOING ONE THING AT A TIME regardless of the “war” going on outside (and in most cases the “war” is but a figment of your imagination and can WAIT).

Do one thing at a time – focus – and IGNORE any and all distractions.

That’s another reason I like to workout at home, by the way. There’s no distractions, no “gym bunnies”, no tomfoolery, no stupid questions, no-one “pumping their tris to look like Arnie X3” , and so forth.

It’s just ME – my living room – and my WORKOUT! And boy do I “get her done”  – NOT with minimal distractions – but with NONE.

And thats how it should be, my friend.

All for now!

Best,

Rahul

P.S. – A lot of what I talk about in terms of fitness holds true for LIFE as well. So do most, if not all of the “10 Commandments of Successful Physical Training” that you can find right HERE: – The Book
