  • I HATE that advert where they give a load of women a shampoo bottle and they all go “ooh microbiome?” Then the advert says you should buy this shampoo because this one takes care of your microbiome. Classic use of “complicated scientific terminology” as a sales technique.

  • I eat a lot of unhealthy food but in the middle of the night my mom give me a healthy midnight snack of banana apples and strawberry

  • It would be nice if you mentioned breath and also the objective of the exercise-spinal and pelvic stability, which is the common denominator on all variations.

  • 2:15
    K: A community of 380…..
    Me: Ok nice
    K: 380 thousand…..
    Me: Oh wow
    K: 380 thousand billion bacteria
    Me: Holy Crap thats a lot

    He said it so slowly that my thought process went like this

  • What if our body get changed by modern genetical science and we don’t need much microbes to live except immune system and some other microbes what will human body be like

  • Thanks Mike for addressing the beginner to intermediate progressions, that’s really helpful. What are your thoughts on the Hollow body? Do you think one is more effective/beneficial over the other?

  • Im having major problems with low-back setup for the deadbug. If I lay on the ground knees bent, i have a natural arch in the low back. If I then press low back flat on the ground, it compresses the spine since my upper torso doesnt slide up to accomodate it. All videos however teach it like this so im confused. I’ve tried both elongated and compressed low back, either way hurts actually

  • Excellent progression and tips Mike but I have a doubt during exercise keeping your back flat does not put pressure on the vertebral segments. It will not be better to keep the pelvis in a neutral position instead of keeping your back flat???

  • Hahaha ����
    Just actually remembered what that stupid scene looks Luke when the demon takes over. And snap chat was really hot during that period, yet they expected people to take the movie seriously.

  • What if i always eat greasy junk foods alongside with fruits and vegetables? Will that create some kind of perfect breed of bacteria that is completely balanced?

  • i miss u boys. happy thanksgiving. also great that he removed the shoes and just did socks that is great for stability and should continue to implement in the workouts. i like following along and im still w/ the channel.❤️kim

  • this is the video that everyone should be watching and sharing during this quarantine, since most people think we are “pure” while in reality we are full of bacteria, and one of the reasons why it’s not that easy to get that stup1d covid, unless your inmune system is really low

  • Doctor: Well, we’re considering a fecal transplant.
    Patient: What’s that?
    Doctor: Explains
    Patient: Haha, no worries, I think I’ll just die.

  • During the extension of the leg I notice a popping sound in front of my right hip, but without pain, whats the cause, is it harmful?

  • Awesome video, I had a question. I was doing sprint training today and when I was done I noticed pain in the lower right section of my back…any suggestions? I also did a full calisthenics routine and a session of yoga.

  • Hey mate! Can you explain a bit more about progression number 5, in terms of exhaling. Why is this important/how does it carry over? Thanks!

  • @Mike Robertson, thanks for the great video! It would be awesome, if you could do a similar break down for leg lowering exercise and how these two compare to each other.

  • As far as hips and low back on dead bug vs. 90/90 hip lift, is it the same, or are the hips supposed to be slightly more raised on the hip lift?

  • I somehow feel less lonely now that I know that there’s a whole community of little fellas just chillin with my cells, some even helping out a bit lol

  • 1920: We will have flying cars in the next century, i guarantee it!
    2020: Trust me, shoving other person’s poop up your butt is necessary for your own health…

  • Please do some research on ayurveda ( thousands of years old medical science) because most of these things in this video resonates with teachings and parctices of ayurveda

  • I keep getting conflicting answers for this particular exercises. Should my lower back stay completely flat on the floor with no natural curve(posterior tilt) in the lower spine, or should I be maintaining neutral spine in my lower back where there is still some space in between my back and the floor. I know my ribs should always stay down.

  • Yeah, our body has macrophages T-cells, interferons, neutrophils, NK etcetera. Loads and loads of defenses. lockdowns social distancing and facemasks will not help.

    How come we look outside when the defense system is already inside us? Just because you are ignorant od the immune system complexity does not mean you make me lose my job and coop me at home, forcing me to defy the inertia of my human mind propelled by the things I love to do. That’s your hallucination and karma collects.

  • We used this as a punishment in the Army but called it the dying cockroach. Well, until the softies started joining and cried about it being abuse.

  • You have just lost me. Bill and Melinda Gates foundation sponsored this? OMG. They are are also sponsors of Monsanto and Monsanto are evil. Sorry don’t you know this already? I loved your video up until I saw the sponsors!

  • I like how instead of instead of sacrificing themselves and saving the world, they decided to get that game to go viral and make the world a living hell

  • i hate this part ;w; add me on roblox 😉 roblox: cloudyyxrosee || tik tok: cloudy.ros3eee || snapchat: mhood238 || instagram: chqrs.pancake || other tik tok acc: chqrs.pancake || DO ALL IF YOU HAVE EM ��❤️

  • I for real ate snacks while watching this and i just said this in my mind “if he/she is right should i remove my snacks? Or no?”
    Btw im on a diet so drink water and eat fruit and vegetables to be safe from covid 19
