Well first off, merry Christmas and Seasons’s greeting to ALL of you from 0 Excuses Fitness HQ’s!!
Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe I did a similar post a while ago – a post about how you really know that your training program is a GOOD one – to put it one way, at least.
Any training program is obviously just as good as the results it delivers – but what really makes a training program stand out is how well it can be adapted and modified in the absence of necessary “tools” to get the job done.
And no, before you say it – I ain’t talking just treadmills, weights and gyms in terms of tools either.
Por ejempelo, one of the MAIN (if not THE MAIN) tools I used to get into super shape – and fry the fat off my body at record speeds were my routines on my favorite hill – yes – THAT hill!
In the past I’ve been “guilty” of putting on a few extra kgs – or more – around the midsection when I don’t have this tool right next to me – and truth be told, the same thing holds true for (otherwise motivated) folks when they don’t have access to their favorite gym – or swimming pool – or whatever it is YOU use.
You’d think that since I’ve been in India a long, long time now I’d have put on at least a LITTLE weight around the midsection? Or at least some more fat overall?
Well, I’ll tell you a little story – or two in fact.
As I was walking around looking for an apartment this afternoon I met up (by chance) with a couple of old Italian students of mine – and one of them was noticeably STRONGER than the last time I met him in January this year.
“Man, you’re a lot stronger than before!!” I remarked as he did his own version of Gorilla Grip on me. Bear in mind this man is a 6 foot something ex wrestler and army man – – and outweighs me by about a ton too.
OK, not a ton, but you get the drift!
“Yes, I am! And I’ve lost weight too!” – and while he still has a bit of a paunch to be honest, whatever he’s doing (according to him at home) is WORKING, and …
“Look at you though”, he continued. “You’re always fit!”
“Ah, not always. I wasn’t even in China for a long time … and I’m not sure my cardio is up to the mark just as yet”
“In fact, I might just have put on a few pounds” I said, half laughingly and half not sure why I said it.
“You???”, he retorted. “You look like you’ve put on extra muscle – certainly not FAT though!”
And it’s true, of course. My pullup and dip routines back in India added plenty of strength and muscle to my frame in the absence of my nigh favorite “tool” – and THAT is the reason I’m telling you this little story.
As the other folks I met today all looked at me and commented “Oh, you must be a fitness coach”, it got me to thinking – and it got me to think about telling you something that I’ve told you many times before – if just because of how vitally important it is.
And that is this – the BEST thing about the 0 Excuses Fitness System isn’t necessarily the deep breathing or the exercises themselves – or the sheer EASE with which you can get in workouts at any place and time of your choosing.
All this is great, of course, but what is really gratifying is the results – and how ADAPTABLE the program is!
It works without a gym (obviously). It works without LSD cardio. It works without you having to bike, run or pound the pavement – or even climb hills on a regular basis.
And it delivers results accordingly too.
As I sit here after a hectic, hectic day – back in mainland China – this is the one thought that struck me – and if you needed yet another reason to grab the 0 Excuses Fitness System – well – this BE it right here, my friend.
Get your paws on the best darn exercise system there is today, my friend.
You’ll never regret the choice you made for a second!
P.S. – And yes, hills are probably the best tool you can use in terms of not just blasting those pesky fat cells away – but also in terms of getting RIPPED – and FAST – while adding a ton of muscle to your frame as well. I’ll write more on this in the future, but for now – Eat More- Weigh Less will tell you all you need to know on this topic!
P.S #2 – I may just order dinner from THAT restaurant that I did this past Feb – – which is where I got the proof and idea for Eat More – Weigh Less. I’ll keep you posted on that as well!!
