Before I start this piece, a question for you (and this is tailored towards you GUYS out there).
Are you embarrassed at taking your shirt off in public?
Simple question, my friends (and if you’re a lady, well, replace “taking shirt off” with “wearing bikini” or something along those lines). Either a yes or no answer will suffice.
For years, yours truly fell into the YES category, despite having exercised and worked out hard for MOST of my life.
And for years, I was embarrassed to take my shirt off. At the beach. In front of S.O.’s (though they didn’t care for the most part). While working out outdoors during summer time etc.
For men, this predicament usually occurs as a result of “moobs” (man boobs) and of course that dreaded paunch, or even the beginning of it, as the once taut stomach turns “jiggly”.
And for women, it’s mostly the expanding ass (bootlicious PLUS if I might say so, hehe) and the “jelly like stomach” …
And no, exercising more doesn’t always cure the issue.
In fact, believe it or not, it sometimes EXACERBATES the issue.
A while ago, two years or thereabouts to precise, I saw a person that I admire manifold — more than a lot of other people I see on a daily basis.
I’ve written about this man before, and continue to do so.
A man that truly INSPIRED me for the way he trains — and trained, back when I first met him in China in 2013, a man that truly does it BARE bones — and bare foot, most of the time!
That man is the old man I met in China, and if you’re on this list, you know who he is — — or you should, at any rate!
At the time I mention I hadn’t seen this man for ages.
If you remember, that was my “5 climbs/morning plus 2 climbs/evening” days … 7 days a week, something that truly did WHIP me into the best shape of my life … overall.
But there was something, but anyway, on with the story.
At that point (when I met the old man again) I had switched up my routine again, and was doing afternoon workouts with my shirt OFF.
And as soon as he saw me, he broke into a huge smile!
“Oh!! Nihao, nihao!” (How are you, how are you?!)
And as we shook hands, and I noticed his gorilla grip the SAME as what I remembered, he “poked” me in the abdomen.
“Hao li hai!” he said, nodding approvingly.
Now, for those that remember, stomach fat is something the old man was always against, and rightly so.
Your waistline is indeed your life, as Paul Bragg famously said and you should never let it get BIGGER than it was in your prime.
(Which of course is advice most people just “Read” and then “shrug off”, and I suspect so the vast majority of people on this list. Oh well. Can take a horse to water, but can’t make it drink, hehe).
And as he pointed at my stomach, I was reminded of just how far I had come … but something else too.
Until a short while ago, I was doing the other type of workout I mentioned. Which was great, but also “LSD” in a way, and my body was starting to tire and give out.
I could no longer seem to force myself to go on those long hikes, and those daily 5 AM walks … and after a full day of work, two more hikes.
I still did it occasionally, but for the most part I was on 0 Excuses Fitness.
And while the hill climbs got me in great shape, I still did NOT take my shirt off.
In public, anyway, and certainly not while working out.
However, as soon as I switched to a modified version of my workout that I mentioned, bingo — those LAST bits of fat flew away.
The man boobs (albeit so tiny you couldn’t see ’em, but still). The love handles. The last bit of jiggly tummy.
And so forth.
All went away after that ONE day I did a modified workout, and was STUNNED at the results I got … in less than a few hours, with less than an ideal DIET …
And that was when I chronicled my own experiences (and others I trained at the time) into a power packed, pathbreaking manual the likes of which I have NOT seen out there on the market as yet.
If you have, let me know — but I doubt it!
That little ditty is Eat More — Weigh Less — and the routines therein will truly blast away those last bits of (or rolls of) pesky FAT my friend — quicker than you ever thought possible.
And though I always “knew” the keys to getting flab off your body in RECORD time is to do the opposite in terms of time spent while exercising, it was (for whatever reason), the very first time I actually did an entire workout based upon nothing but these moves.
Moves that look “easy” or “too easy” to the average Joe or Jane, but movements that are anything BUT.
Movements where you workout (intensely) for a few seconds to less than a minute, and rest for probably five times that time period before “going again” (nah, it ain’t what you’re thinking guys — get yer mind out of the gutter, hehe).
Although THAT in itself is a good workout, I’m not referring to workouts in the hay!
I’m referring to animal like bodyweight movements which literally get your internal fat burners CRANKED UP to the max, and if you think that’s all there is to it, and you can Google what I’m talking about, be my guest my friend.
I tried it for years. Got in good shape — great shape, but those LAST tiny bits of flab would NOT fly off my frame no matter what.
And then finally, one fine afternoon during Chinese New Year in 2018, I had one of those “hallelujah” movements.
I did the thing — without even knowing I was “doing the THING”! I think I even bumped my chin against the floor that day when doing handstand pushups (note to you guys reading this — if there ever was an exercise that calls out for caution, it is THAT — it delivers spectacular results, but CAUTION is key, at least when you do it the right way as I teach).
And powerful a weapon though pull-ups and handstand pushups can be and ARE, what I’m talking about trumps those by a factor of about a 100 when it comes to pure FAT burning, muscle building and most of all — feeling like a BILLION BUCKS — — from the inside out.
And like I said, I discovered said workouts by “chance” … and when I weighed myself later on that night, I was nigh shocked my friend. The sales page for the product explains it all, but for now, let me assure you that at the time neither was I on a special diet nor was I following any special precautions.
It was the New Year in China. A time where literally everything closes, and I was eating more unhealthy food than I should, simply because at a certain point I had run out of options (and groceries for the first coupla days) … as well as making the most of the time and drinking a beer or two, sometimes more.
And yet, the results I saw — and felt — within the space of a few hours after ONE workout (note — there are tons mentioned in the course) literally BLEW my mind.
I figured it might just be a fluke.
Did it again the next day with some modifications.
And at night, I tested my weight again.
And my rep numbers etc.
And after a couple of days, I figured this product might just be the MOST useful thing I’ve ever put out in the past — both in terms of exercises that get the job done — QUICK — and build a ton of muscle while you’re at — — while burning fat on auto pilot.
In a nutshell, if you haven’t experienced workouts that make you feel like you’re burning FLAB WHILE doing your exercises … well, then you haven’t gotten on the right programs.
That deep, deep THUMP of the heart.
That way of being out of breath, and muscles all over your body, and especially your CORE … literally SCREAMING for rest (in a good way!) after but a few seconds of some of these movements.
The sweat pouring off you, and the looks of the people as they pass away, some literally screaming out loud, what is the foreign devil doing HERE ..
And much, much more my friend. These are but the TIP of the iceberg in terms of the benefits you WILL experience once you get on said workouts.
So if getting in the very very best shape of your life at record speed and literally FEEL the fat peeling off as you work out … well, go here, and do the thing, my friend.
Do so now, and I promise you this — you won’t be disappointed!
P.S — Oh, and pushups do a fabulous job of stripping away nasty FAT around not just the midsection, but the entire CORE. Whats the difference I hear you ask, eh. Find out here — https://0excusesfitness.com/pushup-central/
