This is a picture of me at age 79. I do 15 reps from standing to straight out.
I emphatically recommend that "Yoga for Men Only" by Frank Rudolph Young, be purchased with his “The Laws of Mental Domination” and “Richard Hittleman’s: 28 Day Yoga Plan.” The quickly learned lessons of these three books complement one another perfectly. Results are immediate and very rewarding, fueling your enthusiasm and drive for ever greater self-improvement. My original copies of the Young books were lost many years ago but not before the principles and lessons they imparted became an integral part of my modus vivendi. I now have these treasures back in my life. Because people respond to strength with admiration and respect and to weakness with strength, I have always believed that it is inherent in man's nature to want to look strong, feel strong, and, of course, be strong. Despite the superficial veneer of civility by which mankind functions, we are still, as famed historian Will Durant commented, basically monkeys biologically subject to hierarchical laws in the natural order of things. Ralph Waldo Emerson said that “You should make the most of what you are because that’s all you have with which to work.” If you want to maximize your potential, realize your physical and mental manifest destiny, and truly demand and deserve the admiration and respect of others, buy these books at any cost. Don’t just know them by reading. "Do" what you read, become what you read. Prepare yourself for the unexpected because Life is a school, and sooner or later, inevitable adversity will provide you with the opportunity to pass or fail the test of what you’ve learned and what you are. You may very well discover that you are actually an Alpha male falsely cloaked in others’ negative opinions of you. Og Mandino's “Greatest Salesman in the World” tells us that our purpose in life is to grow into a mountain and not to shrink into a grain of sand. Interestingly enough, Ouspensky's "Tertium Organum" declares that it is expansion and contraction that defines the 4th Dimension. Where do you see yourself in your 4th Dimension? If it’s the Mountain, the books named in this review will take you there.
