Ya know, about a year or so ago I see an advertisement for this doctor’s newsletter that says, ‘Start Your Day With a Cup of Coffee and a Cigarette.’
In terms of arresting attention, it’s not bad … but I dare say that MY headline for today’s email is a tad better.
And although I am not in agreement with a cup of coffee and a cig for breakfast .. much less a donut – I am in favor a six pack and a couple joints.
Let me explain – now that I have your attention in a MachiaFurian** sort of way – the explanation you’ve been waiting for:
When you train your abs first thing in the morning you energize yourself for the day, you help your digestion, you crank the voltage on your metabolism and … in a nutshell, you ‘take charge’ of your day.
The Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener and vacuum – as taught in Combat Abs accomplish all of the above – and they begin to do so in just ‘five’ seconds. Yes, you heard that right. In five seconds you can begin to take charge of your life by tightening your abs.
Both exercises listed above are just two of the daily abdominal exercises that make up The Magnificent Seven in Combat Abs.
The other five exercises are really a series of extraordinary stretches for the lower back and waistline that help eliminate lower back pain while strengthening the ‘core.’ None of them are difficult – but if you don’t do them each day, or at least a few times a week – your body becomes stiff and rigid. Not a good thing.
But when you begin your day with the Magnificent Seven – you’ll feel so good afterward that you’ll understand the meaning of ‘a kick start for the day’ … with a healthy dose of morphine.
Truth is your body is like a living, breathing warehouse of pharmaceutical drugs, ready to be released at any time … if … you simply get off your ass and … do something.
You hear all this yapping about ‘runner’s high’ and an ‘aerobic high.’ Fiddlesticks. That high ain’t nuthin compared to the high you get from following the Magnificent Seven every morning. And I should know because I’m high as a kite right now … naturally.
You, too, can feel as good as I do.
And you can feel this good every single day. But I understand that some people would rather feel miserable – and I have no objection if that is what someone wants. Tis not my job to change someone’s mind.
I only want to present my point of view.
In so doing, allow me to present a recent email I received that I think you’ll enjoy:
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the Royal Court of Combat Conditioning. I had lifted weights regularly for the last 3 years and loved the benefits in strength, health, etc. But, I hated how my back always hurt and how all my muscles seemed ‘tight’.
I have been doing the Royal Court for about 6 weeks, and I get as good of a strength workout as when I used to lift weights, but I knock out my workout in less time, and my body feels more flexible and loose.
My back hurts much less, and for the first time in 5 years I can actually believe that I can eventually get to be pain free. I have never believed I could be pain free in my back. Also, as for the Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener, this might be the best exercise in the world. I think everyone wants to shrink their gut, but they believe they must do a crapload of cardio or starve themselves. I have been doing the stomach flattener for 7 days, and my pants are already starting to feel looser, without changing my diet … and it only takes a total of 3-5 minutes a day to do the stomach flattener. AMAZING!!!
I have a question about the uphill sprints and the Hindu squats. Do you believe that these two exercises work all the muscles of the legs well enough by themselves (for example, do they work your quads hard, but not hit your hamstrings enough?). I want to make sure that I can do just these 2 exercises a majority of the time and build strong, balanced, healthy legs, without having to worry that my quads are getting too strong for my hamstrings.
Thanks so much,
M.F. Ranjay, first off, I’m thrilled to hear of your progress with both Combat Conditioning and Combat Abs. Keep up the fine job you are doing. In regards to your question, understand that in both Hindu squats and uphill sprints you are working the entire body as a system. You need not concern yourself with every single itty bitty bodypart. I have never worried about working my hamstrings since the day I learned these exercises, especially when you toss in the Hindu pushups, which work your legs as well as your upper body. If you need further proof that your hamstrings are getting worked during the Hindu pushup, then put your feet together when you do them and push as far back as possible on each rep. It will stretch your hamstrings, calves and shoulders big time. In my opinion, that’s plenty and you’ll get stronger and more flexible at the same time. All the best.
Well, my friend, that’s all for today’s tip.
