One of the comments my wife made to me when I returned from China made my jaw literally drop with amazement.
“You’ve become taller, haven’t you”?
I passed this off as a casual “joke”. After all, who on earth at the age of 37 becomes “taller”?
Bigger? Yes. Stronger? Definitely – if you do the RIGHT things.
And of course, fatter – again, a resounding yes – if you do the “right” things to get fat, hehe.
But taller? That didn’t quite fly.
But yet, that comment struck me as being odd – one of those comments that you initially dismiss, but one of those that “sticks in your subconscious” as it were – if just for the sheer truth emanating from it (a truth albeit not “acknowledged” consciously).
I stood “toe to toe” with my wife, and thought about it for a fleeting instant – and though all seemed same on the outside – something was different. It DID seem like I was a wee bit taller, but my “rational” mind dismissed this as bunk.
A couple of days later, I heard it again – from my wife – but it was NOT her saying this.
“The cleaning lady we hired remembers you! And she said you’ve gotten taller”.
“Huh?? For real??”
Apparently so, my friend. Apparently so, and the cleaning lady was NOT the last one that made the comment.
Now when I say taller, I do NOT mean “several inches taller”. I mean probably half an inch or so at most – but the “appearance” I’m giving off is that of being significantly taller, and upon analyzing this -it’s actually simple.
First off, I do a ton of pull-ups in my daily routines. I’ve spoken about the numerous benefits of pull-ups in my emails – but what I haven’t really touched upon is their amazing ability to add on inches (and muscle) to teenage frames if you do ’em regularly and the RIGHT way.
Make no mistake about it – doing them the RIGHT way is crucial – especially if you’re looking to add on inches, and if a teenage boy can end up being a two to three inches taller as an adult due to doing these, it does NOT seem inconceivable that an adult may add on a few cms as well – if just in terms of proper posture etc.
Pull-ups, my friend, build the ENTIRE upper body – and not only build ferocious “ape like” levels of gripping strength and power throughout the entire upper body – but they also do far more than that.
They improve your posture beyond belief. They give you abs that look like they’ve carved out of rebar. They give you that “chest out” look – and when you do ’em with pushups – especially handstand pushups and the advanced stuff – well – watch out, my friend.
You’ll be looking like the human version of King Kong in NO time at all, and a TALLER one at that.
So today’s tip, you ask?
Get good at the basics and then get cracking asap on the pull-ups, my friend. They’re that darn important – and yes – they ARE something you SHOULD include in your daily routine without exception.
Last, but not least, what if you’re currently in the ranks of those that are unable to even hold on to the bar – let alone pound out ONE pull-up?
Well, you’re not alone. The vast majority of adult men out there cannot do a single pull-up even if it were to save their life, and though that might come across as somewhat abrasive, ’tis indeed true.
Good news is, you don’t have to be stuck in that category for long.
My courses on pull-ups – – specifically “Pull-ups – from DUD to STUD – within a matter of WEEKS” has been getting folks from 0 pull-ups to 10 at one go – and way, way beyond my friend. Way beyond.
And if you haven’t already, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy right HERE. Right now, my friend.
Who knows. You might just get comments like I’m getting now down the road as well!
P.S. – Though the initial course on pull-ups I mentioned above is GOOD – – there is more, my friend. And most of the comments I’m getting in the above regard are coming because of the workouts I partake of on a regular basis. Workouts taken straight from my ADVANCED course on pull-ups – available right HERE – http://0excusesfitness.com/pull-ups-stud-to-super-stud-within-weeks/. Grab ’em both while you can – it’s an offer you do NOT want to miss, my friend.
P.S. #2 – Gautam, a customer from India (in his own words) wanted to “desperately get better at pull-ups” but didn’t know how to. What happened after he bought my course (this BEFORE I updated it, mind you!)? Well, his testimonial at the end of the page says it all. Read it yourself, and find out!
