Man oh man, them coincidences – which I dont believe in, just keep piling up!

This morning, I was there waiting for my damn tea to steep – which it finally did, and for the “ex” to let me have a go at the power point for the damn hot water or what not, until that happened, of course, I did 10 pull-ups.

Then I did a few more.

But the last one I did, I knew there was something special to it, even though I did not find it tough whatsoever – for me – but it IS tough for most people out there.

That being a REVERSE pull-up.

Now, reverse training is something I’ve highly advocated, and being as of late, my book “Pushups – REVERSE pushups – the BEST darn exercise EVER!” has really, without me marketing an iota for it – started to sell way more than it normally does (which it was doing fine) – especially in audio format – like hotcakes, I should say, and without “jinxing” the damn book, I gotta say this – reverse training is something everyone should incorporate into their routines.

(And it just shows you, when a product is that damn good, it does its own marketing, so do the REVIEWS it gets and the results it gets people which that last one is really what counts my friend. Its about YOU, and what the book does for YOU, not how much I tom tom it as the best etc. (Which it is, dont get me wrong). Like Bezos once said, in the old days you devoted 70% of the time shouting about it from the rooftops, and 30% on your product, in the new age, that inverts.

I’m not entirely on board with that, but he’s right – the internet has changed things to a great deal!)

With pushups, the form is key – and that book covers reverse pushups in its entirety – of course, there’s always ways to take things to the next level!

I still remember a long term customer telling me (Charles) how “handstands were relatively (mark the word – relatively!) easy for him”, but how he struggled with table pushups and reverse pushups.

These bring out weak links in your body you did not even know you had, they relieve sore shoulders, they improve flexibility throughout the body – I cannot recommend them enough.

I’ve often done nothing but 250 reverse pushup workouts, and felt GREAT. Abs-olutely great – no pun intended!

The exercise in this book is quite difficult to master but once you crack it, it will blow you away at how good it makes your entire body feel, I’m 63 and let me tell you, this one exercise has done more for my overall wellbeing than anything else I’ve ever done. A masterpiece, thank you.

– John Walker  (from the UK).

And he’s right!

Now, while this exercise will go a very long way indeed in giving you that “carved” abs look to the point where people’s elbows bounce off it – it’ll feel like their elbows are bouncing off a damn wall (to them) … what about another great movement?

Reverse pushups are a great way to improve rep counts in pushups, and build up the strength to do pull-ups properly if you cannot as yet.

But even if you can, like me?

Really focus on the ECCENTRIC motion of the pull-up, my brain told me for some reason this morning.

And while I did not know why, after checking sales etc for my books while sipping my tea, I know why – now.

There’s no other way to really focus on pull-ups in reverse other than what I just mentioned above, and if you can lower down under control, you’ll build solid grip and tendon strength that you would not if you just “did the pull-up” normally (which builds great strength and conditioning anyway).

That, my friends, is a reverse pull-up.

Some may consider the chin up to be that, but I focus on motion when it comes to these sort of things, and as I did a minute down on the pull-up, man, it felt great!

Googled around a bit to see if I was the only doing this sort of madness, hehe – and lo, I came upon guys dressed exactly like I do – right down to the color etc – fit guys – doing ’em!

It’s a great way to build strength for the actual pull-up if you dont already have the strength and fitness levels to do them chin over bar. Simply “jump” or otherwise get to the top position of the pull-up, and really, really focus on lowering down under control.

And thats that, my friend. Maybe I’ll have a video of me doing it, but really – most of my pull-up videos show it, as I do them slow and easy, perfect form, not jerking up and down for rep count like most people do.

But there’s probably going to be a video on it out there SOMETIME – maybe sooner than y’all think. Watch out!

Or, watch this SPACE for more – hehe.

To end – along with the book above, another great compilation of ours – “Pull-ups – from DUD to STUD – to SUPER STUD within WEEKS!” has been quietly climbing up the charts.

I still remember how the book was trolled – and praised in equal quantities and measures.

The book will truly CHANGE your life, my friend, as a recent review said – and I highly encourage you to check it out NOW if you’re truly interested in getting better – real good – at the one exercise that everyone desperately wants to do well, but precious few folks can.

And thats that.

Back soon!
