Have you heard the rumors flying
about the school – as Ole Woody used to call
em – that “school up north?”
I bet both Woody and Bo are shaking their heads
is shame and disbelief.
Rumor has it the coaches worked the
players too hard. Or at least that is what
was leaked to the media and the NC2A.
Wow, no wonder they went
1- and 35 or whatever the heck
the record was last year.
It leaves me with the impression
they dont make players like they used to
or the impression that Michigan is soft.
If reports are true which, who knows -
the coach doesnt have a good track record
at his previous school West Virgina, it leaves
me scratching my head.
If they kept players past the allotted times,
thats one thing.
However, how bad can it be?
Two a days are not like they used to be.
Back in the day before guys passed out
and died, they were non-stop full contact until
the regular season. Okay, the first two days
Well, its now reversed.
Out of 15 practices, you can only practice in pads 2-3 days.
And the rest is helmets and shoulder pads.
3-a-days are outlawed. Only so many hours
are allowed on the gridiron.
Without knowing all the facts – all I can say is
if these players complained to the media
about going too long in a practice – big deal.
New restrictions have made summer camp
a breeze, a cakewalk, a friggin’ country club.
It leaves me thinking just what kind of athletes
did Michigan recruit last year.Â And looks like another
duzy of a season to come.
Perhaps a bit of bravado coming through but
me cant helps it. How do you expect to get good
at anything if you are not willing to put the time
Okay, enough of my rant, if you want something
that wont work you too hard or WILL -Â depending on
your level of commitment – make sure to run
over toÂ Win the Man Boob Battle and latch onto a program with powerful
exercises and drills to strengthen and reduce fat
in your upper chest. Yes, fat does exist there.
The program you want is called Upper Body Armour -

Yes, this time of year brings football season.
But there is another season too – marathon season.
It reminds me of my very first race that I ran.
Back in 2003, a group of friends at
work rolled their eyes when I told them
I was going to run a marathon.
At the time I weighed 254 lbs and had
never run one before and
had no business running one now.
However, one guy stood up and said, “Thats great
Vince, I’ll run it with you.”
Wow, business partners and now running mates.
Turns out, I reached my goal of completing my first marathon.
Before the race I wanted to make shirts up
for us runners and the families supporting us there.
Was my gift to them.
Then I thought what can I put on the front of
the shirt as a slogan. I thought of Nikes piece, Just Do It.
So I modified that a bit and since everyone racing
with my group (3 total) were dads, I decided on “Do It Dad.”
Twas a wise choice as there is an unwritten
rule that everyone in the crowd will yell out
whatever is on your chest, as a way to pump you
up and support you to hit your goal.
Electric. It was.
Imagine thousands of people shouting “DO IT DAD.”
Do it Dad.
DO it DAD.
Do It DADDD!
There were a million plus people in Chicago that day and it
was the closest feeling of being back inside a stadium filled
with 94,000 fans cheering you on in football.
What a rush.
So if you know of anyone racing
this fall in marathon – or if you are doing one
yourself – or are cheering someone on,
here is an idea for you.
I want to pass that exhilarating feeling of
having people pump you up while you nail your desired goal.
And also affirm your parental accomplishment at the same time.
I’ve created t-shirt with the slogan “Do It Dad”
and soon to come “Do It Mom”…
below that, the text reads – “Kick Butt in the Marathon!”
Go to Planet Palko.
These will only be up for marathon season
so if this interests you, make sure to run over
and grab one while you can.
I wore my Do IT Dad shirt to the grocery. A young customer service
clerk asked, “Wow you did a marathon? You are no small runner.”
A great conversation about mind power ensued.
Wearing the t-shirt was like wearing a trophy of an amazing accomplishment
well after the fact. Pretty cool.Â Now onto the next goal.
So go out there and – DO IT DAD! Or MOM!
P.S. That link again will take you to a different site called Planet Palko.

Eight years ago today, someone special came into my life.
My first born bambino.
Turns out she has the same birthday as our president.
No wonder she arrived bucking and screaming like
a little democratic donkey.
Love em or hate him, he’s our leader …
and its interesting to see leadership qualities in
my oldest’s personality.
Hopefully I can turn her into a dynamite republican
before she runs for office.

Just devoured my 2nd James Patterson thriller novel
in less than two days.
Can you say, new hobby!!
To plow through over 550 pages would have taken me like 2 years
in the past, but a couple days – I’m still in awe.Â I’ve always been
a sloooooow reader. Until now.
Although some of his material is sick and twisted – some far out
creativity, its a nice change from the reading ive done in the recent past.
The first book took me less than 6 hours.
The second even faster than the first.
I was shocked and amazed.
If you would like to pick up the same passion,
visit James Patterson’s site and close your eyes and pick.
Any of his books will knock you on your arse and
draw you in with his compelling story, descriptive word
pictures and unique and bizarre characters.
Yes, yes, so what does this have
to do with fitnesseoso.
Well, in one of the books there is a line that goes – “looking good is sweet revenge.”
Hah. Interesting comment.
This begs the question, so where does one start to look good.
Gots to start from the inside out.
Learn to like you from under the skin to win.
Once this is done, external change is just
a matter allowing the outer to catch up to the inner you.
Once the inner work is done, people, experiences, books, dvds will
show up to support your vision for a better you.
Before you know it -this intention that grew from your gut
will consume you and be the driving force behind your
Yes, it may even be addictive. Once you experience
the afterglow of fitness, youll certainly want more.
And soon this activity will become part of your day
and you’ll not feel content until you’ve exercised
your body that day.
If you are looking for support to get and stay fit
over summer and into the fall, try Linebacker Fitness on for size
You’ll be glad you did.
Then you can wake up in the morning cross the mirror
and whisper, “Looking good is sweet revenge.”

Today’s message comes in answer to a question
from “over the pond” in Germany.
His name is Mirko and his question is…
“Hi Vince, can you help me losing weight and not losing muscles?
I lost 15 pounds but most of was good quality mass!
You got a plan or a idea?”
Plan, yes, I have a plan.
First off, here are some down and dirty tips to plant into your mind …
1) Dont run long distance over 100 yards
2) Dont put yourself on a diet
3) Dont drink any soda pop
4) Dont drink any milkshakes
Next, simply said, you must balance the three “Ss”;
sweat time with strength and muscle time… and then
Here’s what I mean …
First “S” … Sweat time.Â Get your body moving — pump
the blood through the ‘ole veins.Â This fires up the fat
burners – thee best.
Second “S” … Strength and muscle time.Â You cant get
lean completely sweating to the oldies to drop weight.Â When you
building musckles you keep the mass you have and also
burn the bubbly ghew off you.
Third “S” … Shift the muscle gears so you never
stay at the same pace.Â Do the exercises I teach
in the Super Body Blitz. This will keep your muscles
guessing as to whats coming next.Â Just like Maverick in Top Gun …
where he hits the breaks to let the Mig airplane
pass him by you have to outwit your muscles as well.
You’ll see what I mean in the Full Body Blitz
a Bonus DVD added to the SUPER Body Blitz course.
For more information, check out my new course
above, where I walk you through step by step the system
to replace the fat with muscle… a high heart rate with
a healthy one…Â and bad cholesterol with the good.
You take a dose of the “Vin Doctor’s” medicine above …
you’ll keep the muscle mass and widdle away your waistline fat
and sand away the cellulite.
Go for it.

Yes, the smell of Triathlons is in the air.

Well, the drive for competition has always
been in my blood – ever since I was a young lad.

The other night I had not gotten a workout in and it was time to tuck the ‘el kiddos into bed.
So I thought – time to do some bedtime bear crawls.
But not just any bedtime bear crawls, growling bedtime bear crawls.
I went from room to room chasing the girlies on all fours.
My middle daughter couldnt stop giggling saying,
“Daddy, you look like a LITTLE bear. Hey little bear.”
And on and on.
I chased them from room to room,
then I’d tackle them and growl and kiss em.
Then back on all fours sprinting out
of the room and find the next little one
to tackle into their bed and rough up.
Yeah, not the best way to relax kids for bed
but I’ll do just about anything to make my girls laugh.
And I will do whatever I can by the end of
the day to make myself out of breath from
moving my body.
When you laugh and exercise guess what this does toÂ your
mind. Yes, you guessed it, you associate FUN with exercise
leading you to do it MORE often. Never allowing fat to cling to
your body for very long.
This sounds like a good thing for you to do as well my friend.
Try it out.
There is a workout under every rock if you are willing
to look.Â Does it have to be perfect form every time, with an outline of
what you are going to do? Hogwash… just get moving.
Enjoy your bedtime bear crawls!
Vince W. Palko

run over to this page and secure your copy right away. It arrives with not one but two bonus CDs to listen to on your way to work to unleash your inner linebacker inside.Â These bonuses are available only while supplies last.

A few nights ago, I watched the first game of
the series between the Cavs and O’ Magic.
What a great game from two high powered teams.
Orlando has some magnificent 3 point
gun slingers. Cavs have Lebron who
scored a career high in the playoffs of 49 points.
After the game, Lebron buckled over
and cramped major league.
Maybe the 8 days off weren’t all
that great for the team.
Cavs were draggin a bit in the 4th quarter.
What does this have to do with you.
Any kind of fatigue is bad be it mental,
physical or emotional.
The funny thing is physical exercise
combats all the above not just physical
Vince Lombardi had a quote that went, “Fatigue
makes cowards out of us all.”
He’d say that after countless gassers
after practice and then run the team
You could see it in the eyes of
the Cadav-alier players… that dumbfounded
glazed over look.
Yes, it even happens to superstars.
So why did Lebron buckle over at the end.
He left everything he had on the court – including tipping
a jump ball to his teammate with one second
to try to win the game.
Let’s hope coach had everyone run a few
extra suicides sprints after practice.
The key to not become a coward from
fatigue is to focus your breathing.
Between my first and 2nd marathon
I had less lactic acid the next day
and the only thing I did differently was
focus on my patented TYE breathing techniques.
But you already know how to breathe.
No you dont. Not like the way I teach in
Triple Your Endurance Â®.
Run here now and never become a coward

Last night, I took all three girls to Sophia’s soccer practice.
Was kinda funny cause many of the parents there kept
staring at us.
You see, while the older one was on the
field the two younger ones and I kicked a soccer ball, wrestled
on the turf, circle bear crawls, and fired up the piggy ride express.
Yes, I’m a little like a kid myself. I like to move, and keep moving -
not sit and watch.
Now usually, when a kid wants to play with their parent, the adult will oblige.
After a few rounds when the kid asks, “Again, again,”
the parent says, “Nooo, I can’t – I’m too tired.”
What if you could tap into energy reserves
and be able to swing your child around and around
and around… and never get gassed.
That would be great. Yes?
Well, what if you could play all evening with them
and outlast them. Seem to good to be true. Its not.
While getting up from the sod, i noticed parents who
were lookin our way -Â quickly look the other direction.
They did this over and over again.
Hmmm, what are they thinking. Maybe something like this:
“Where do this guy get his energy.”
“Why doesnt he just sit down and relax.”
“Wonder what it would feel like to tap into his energy circuit.”
Or maybe they weren’t thinking that at all. Who knows.
What I do know is there’s a principle that I write about
in Triple Your Endurance that leads to greater
levels of energy.
Its one that requires no equipment, no sugary energy drinks,
no coffee, no adrenaline shots… nothing.
Now what if you don’t have kids or your kids
are grown. Well, what would you do with
your newfound energy? Would that extra pep
in your step provide another stream of
income in the form of a sideline biz.
Would it help you write a book.
Would you just want to be able to get
yourself back in fit condition once again.
The choice is up to you.
Grab Triple Your Endurance, and watch how people’s jaws lower wondering how
you got your energy and enthusiasm.
Do it Now. You’ll be glad you did.
