The Karl Gotch Workout
Listen to this tip now
Before I first met Karl Gotch in April of 1999, I had
read about the tremendous fitness, strength and health
benefits of Hindu Pushups and Hindu Squats. But I had
never met anyone who did them regularly - or who knew
exactly how to do them.
All that changed when I met Karl Gotch. He knew these
exercises like the back of his hand. He learned them in
England from an Indian wrestler in the 1950's - and he
Karl Gotch traveled all over the world as a professional
wrestler. He was one of the few of his time who truly
knew how to wrestle. But just as important to Karl was
the conditioning routine he followed and believed in. And
so, no matter where he traveled he looked for and added
in new exercises.
It's the first thing to go as you age. But it doesn't
have to. Friend, don't neglect your flexibility. Gotta
keep those joints and muscles loose and limber. All it
takes is a few minutes each day and. You literally
can double your flexibility in one evening. Combat
Stretching will show you how. To remove those awful
kinks, knots and cramps, sprint on over here.
One of the greatest Karl Gotch workouts is something that
Karl's students in Japan named after him. It is known, quite
simply, as the Karl Gotch Bible. You'll find it on pages 126-127
in the newly revised edition of Combat Conditioning.
Those who have Combat Conditioning are making a grave
mistake if they overlook this workout. Many of
my students have written to tell me that this workout
alone got them into the best shape of their life.
What is the Karl Gotch Bible?
Good question. The Karl Gotch Bible is nothing more than a
deck of 52 playing cards. You get down on the floor, shuffle
the cards and deal one to yourself. Then, depending upon
what color of card you get, and what is on the card, you do
a prescribed number of Hindu pushups or Hindu squats. And
you keep going until you're through the entire deck.
Once you're able to go through the entire deck, you then
think speed. How fast can you rip through the exercises
in the Karl Gotch Bible?
To say this workout is challenging would be an understatement.
It will turn you into a stud - or a studette. Works for men and
In the past I told you about doing the Dan Gable pushup workout
with a deck of cards. That's a great routine, too. But I have to
rank the Karl Gotch workout as shown in Combat Conditioning
much higher because it involves both upper and lower body.
By the way, many people mistakenly think that Karl Gotch is
related in some way to the legendary Frank Gotch, who was
world champion in the early 1900's. Not the case. Karl Gotch's
given name is Karl Istaz. He took the name Karl Gotch when
he made his mark here in the United States.
Others speculate, in a REAL pro wrestling match, who do I
think would win?
Well, can't say I'm unbiased. Afterall, I never had the pleasure of
meeting Frank. And I spent a couple years with Karl when he was
way past his prime. Not only that it's sort of an unfair question.
You can only wonder who would beat whom.
But I will say this, if I HAD to make a choice, I'd put my money
on Karl. I personally believe he was the best real pro
wrestler ever. End of statement.
Well, my friend, that's all for now.
