Yours truly – – “WAHHHH! That’s enough! Please stop!” (as a particularly tender thigh muscle was being “kneaded like dough”)
Yours truly – – “Oh God! Oh My God MAGNUM!” – said as a particularly tender “sore spot” on the shoulder was being literally “pinched and pummeled over and over again”).
Yours truly (yet again) – “Wahhhh! Jesus H.Christ!” – said as the beating relented, but just for a second.
Giggle, giggle (not yours truly). And an attempt to “mimic” me as well, but we’ll get into that later, hehe.
Now, lest you think I got in a street fight – or a legal fight in a boxing ring and got the heck pummeled out of me – think again, my friend.
These (and many other similar) “epithets” are what escaped my mouth the first time I ever went in for a – get this – MASSAGE – in mainland China – and 15 grand years later, the same “expletives” escape my mouth with alarming regularity – although not quite with every “knead and twsit” as it were.
Believe you me, massages in China are nothing like the “romantic foot/body massages” that we in the West tend to identify with.
No – a massage in China, and many other Asian countries is anything BUT romantic in many ways – well, at least the legit ones, hehe.
I speak about massage being one of the most important things you can do for yourself, both in terms of maintaining life long health and in terms of “recovering” from your daily workouts. And it’s true, my friend.
A good Chinese massage (or certain other forms I’ve experienced) may hurt like HECK (and truth be told, it should hurt a bit or it’s not been doing right) WHILE the massage is being administered, but believe me, you’ll be floating on cloud nine once it’s over.
But this email is not about the benefits of massage, albeit numerous. For that, you’ll have to crack open your copy of 0 Excuses Fitness – but for now, lets focus upon the subject line of the email.
‘Tis not the size of the dog, my friend. It’s all about the size of the FIGHT in the dog – and it’s so true.
Most modern day trainees have completely ignored this truism, going for the “huge muscles” look – and doing exactly the opposite of what they SHOULD be doing in order to achieve that look.
You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? The “booby builders” as they say – and even the average trainee at the gym is constantly bombarded with pictures of these bloated freaks – and it’s sad but true, but anabolic steroid usage is rampant amongst those that want to “look huge”.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with looking huge, my friend. The Great Gama was huge – as is clearly evidenced by his picture – but despite his own size (he stood at 5’8″ by the way) – he constantly defeated MUCH BIGGER opponents with alarming ease.
In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that size wise, a lot of his wrestling bouts were like “David vs Goliath” – and David won hands down – and with ALARMING ease, as you can read about on the 0 Excuses Fitness System sales page.
And closer to home, guess who was pummeling me into “submission” (get your mind out of the gutter, hehe – it’s NOT what you’re thinking) during those massages I spoke about?
It was tiny Chinese girls – most of whom stand no more than 5 feet – but let me tell you now, my friend – if one of those girls were to grip the average trainee’s hand, he’s literally be SQUEALING for mercy.
These girls have finger, wrist, and ARM strength from hell despite their small sizes. Not only that, they have endurance to boot. Some of these girls can literally work on you all day long – if you can take it, of course!
Message from today’s email?
Size isn’t necessarily a bad thing – but HOW you get that size – and what you can DO with that size is important.
You’ve probably read about the “he’s got an unnatural pull in his grip” in prior emails. The U.S. Marine and a good friend of mine that said that didn’t just say it for the heck of it.
No – he said it because it’s TRUE – and he stands at about 6’4″ and probably outweighs me by a ton.
Other hand – if you want size along with the benefits I just mentioned?
Well, THAT is a worthwhile goal to achieve – and it can be done, my friend. Oh yes it can be done, and it can be done with workouts that do NOT last any longer than 15-20 minutes tops depending upon your goals.
The Great Gama did it. Countless of others have done it throughout the centuries.
I did it, and do it on a daily basis.
And so can YOU, my friend – if you make the decision to.
Make the decision right NOW, my friend – you’ll never regret it. Hop on to the 0 Excuses Fitness System bandwagon right here, and watch your life change for the better – http://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/
P.S. – By the way, what exercise did these tiny masseuses do to obtain the incredible wrist and forearm strength they got? Hint – It ain’t administering massages on a daily basis that gave them that “gripping base” to start with.
Hint #2 – It ain’t lifting weights or doing chin-ups.
