I’ve said this before, I’ll say it again.

This morning I did something which I’ve never quite done in my life before my tea, or hill climb, or work, or other workouts – I knocked off 25 pull-ups.

Fresh off a load of Nazi fem BS from the so called significant other, and a complete fast – not even my preferred green tea (which I’ve rectified today – mint did not quite hit the spot the other day, although I suspect thats more due to the concentration of leaves) …

Anyway – for those that dont know, we SELL high quality green tea etc and other natural stuff that works way better in terms of overall health for your body than these crappy artificial supplements people love to stuff down their gullets “protein shakes” and other nonsense to “grow big muscles” and increase T levels, and so forth.

Akshay Kumar, Indian movie star and an icon (and the same guy whose “90’s hairstyle I tried to ape when I was 13 – hehe) had THIS to say about supplements.

There is a culture among our youth these days of using protein shakes and other supplements. I am really against it and I don’t understand why they take it. They are becoming a product of a product. People have forgotten to have ghee, milk, dahi, lassi and stopped eating home-cooked food.”

Most wont heed this advice.

(Dahi is curd, lassi is buttermilk, and ghee is clarified butter, all stuff which in moderation is good for you – despite what people think about it “putting weight on you”). (It’s sad, but even folks from the subcontinent have mostly forgotten that TRADITIONAL isnt bad for you!)

I write more about whats good for you in the Simple and Effective Diet (yours gratis with a purchase of the 0 Excuses Fitness System), maybe I’ll write more about the above in an upcoming volume of the same, but for now, Kumar – 5th degree Dan black belt, Muay Thai guy who struggled for years and years before becoming the mega star he is today – well, I’d listen to him.

Back to fasts, I’ve gone hoarse advocating the benefits of these.

You just feel DIFFERENT.

Most people think you’re weaker “since you hadn’t had a bite to eat”.

“I’m hunnnnnnnnnnnnnnngry”….

Well, my friend, sometimes it’s good to be a tiger and WAIT for that next meal, and WORK for it while you do so.

I’ve no idea how long my fast will last. Normally I do it for three days straight, and my workouts amp up a notch – and I can already feel 100 pull-ups coming along today.

Our website for green tea etc (the dedicated one) has been down quite a while, that will change most likely on Monday/Tuesday when you’ll see us back up in that regard too. We’ve been doing some major database upgrades on the other site, and I’m not sure if it’s just excess traffic causing the sucker to “crash” – sales would point to that yes, or if it’s some flaw with the site design which no-one’s been able to spot – I think a combo of the latter, but it’s kept me busy for the past month, last night till 2AM.

While fasting …

My friend, if there is ONE thing I would recommend most healthy people to do occasionally, or even more than “sometimes” – its fasting.

You will recover from your workouts better, you will sleep better, you will focus better, you will drive AWAY negativity from your life, your RESULTS will improve, I cannot stress how valuable fasting done right is.

It’s different. You breathe deeper, you SWEAT more, your form just improves, niggles in your body go away “naturally” – you’ll have to do it to see.

No product on that out as yet, but there will be soon.

In the meanwhile, if you want to learn how to crack off pull-ups right, easy peasy, chin over bar, smooth as butter, follow the instructions in the manual here.

And thats that.
