  • Point blank “negligent and unethical” Cavaliar from ShilleanX as a master in “fitness marketing guru”.
    Makes me wanna schkeeve hearing this name such a con artist.
    Lets just call it what it is, a personality disorder of a covert narcissistic sociopath with severe insecurity disorder.
    The fact that he spews garbage about nutrition and claims to favor carbs yet stays under 7% body fat year round…hmm lets hear about your cycles of either osterine, proviron of masteron buddy.
    I’ve had to chime in multiple times in Health/PE classes when asked “what do you think about AX?”, well my blood starts to boil and could go into a 1 hour lecture of his unethical practices with cross-fit mentality to confuse the body.
    Strength & conditioning isn’t a reinvented wheel every training session like cross-fit, throwing bunch of garbage at the ceiling and hoping something sticks.
    Right on point about variances in posture taking into effect lifestyles and proportions of skeletal structure.
    Yourself Enkiri, Cressey, Pavel, Ross E. could all give him a run for his money in strength, conditioning and athleticism any time of the year.

  • Purebullfit’s latest video is a shitshow of backtracking, downplaying what he has previously said and being a patronising little bitch

  • even if the perfect leg workout was an error on Jeff’s production crew, Athlean-X is Jeff’s brand and the buck stops with him.

    also, can we stop talking about guy now?

  • Alec, it seems Jeff lies about his height too.
    He says he’s 180 in ‘my stats revealed’, but when he’s next to Antonio Brown, he’s obviously shorter, and Brown’s shorter than 180…
    How insecure and dishonest can the guy get…

  • I’m a physical therapist and the model of posture and pain is still taught in schools. However, In less than 4 years of practicing, I’ve realized that model is outdated through life/work experience and self study. There is a lot of psuedoscience taught in PT school unfortunately which is a detriment to the profession.

  • Hey Alex BBM has a few physios and chiros (who renounce the spinal manipulation stuff and basically also work as physios…). Michael Ray, Derek Miles are just a couple of them. They do great online consultations too. They work on the team to form their research crew for current literature in pain science and they really promote load management, and understanding contextual factors (psychology, physiology, social settings, mental health) and how all of these influence pain states. Really cool stuff. I’ve had coaching through BBM so just wanted to mention that.

  • It’s been purported that your powers of influence go beyond the exercise community. In a recent article in American Cock Strong Magazine; you were credited by the renown Urban Thesaurus, for the addition of the names “Biden/Kamala”, as synonyms for “Ken/Karen”, after you interchangeably used the words in public.

  • Athlean-x is like Mike Chang’s sixpackshortcut and the only difference is the audience of Jeff is dumber than Mikes’. Remember when Jeff does the face pulls and Mike did a towel roll? Both are dumb but somehow Jeff gets a pass

  • Hey Rip what would you recommend doing for a thickened left ventricle in my heart? I believe I have developed athletes heart from training and my heart hypertrophied.

  • People need to keep eyes open, there are still people who don’t know iron is a hot commodity. 4 weeks ago I added 2×45’s, 2×35’s, 2×25’s 6×10’s, 4×5’s 2×2.5’s a curl bar and 7ft Olympic rusty bar for $50.00

  • People need to keep eyes open, there are still people who don’t know iron is a hot commodity. 4 weeks ago I added 2×45’s, 2×35’s, 2×25’s 6×10’s, 4×5’s 2×2.5’s a curl bar and 7ft Olympic rusty bar for $50.00

  • World Olympic weightlifting has a doping problem. But the NGO for weightlifting here in the US seems to have the same issue as Judo. Sad really.
    Wish more could be done to bring both sports into much more popularity.

  • I bought total beaxst awhile back and honestly just seems like a waste of money. Every week 6-8 then switch 10-12. That’s all it is and although I saw gains they were newbie gains. After I went and did the hardest mode and didn’t really see gains just soreness on any given random day. Maybe I was a bad student? Idk I copied his videos exactly

  • I had 3 or 4 of Jeff’s programs. AX2 is probably the worst. Each week is extremely different from the last such that you never feel like you’re even progressing in the first place let alone figure out progressive overload methods. The only one that had any sort of road map for progrssion was the platue buster program, forgot the name, but bascially at the end of each month, you’d go for a max number of reps on the DB bench, front squat, underhand row, and deadlifts, you know, all the top super duper important lifts that we clearly are trying to improve on. Not the back squat or regular bench, nah, underhand rows. Anyway, if you got a number higher than you did last time then you bumped up some percentages. But the workouts again changed each month so really, if each month was the same it would at least make a little sense, but you don’t get the feeling of getting better on any of his programs. That same program I just mentioned has you deadlifting 3 times in a week at one point with the third time being a test. I’ve always noticed a loss in overall strength on his programs.
    Sorry for the long post, you asked haha

  • You and Curlean-X really opened my eyes about this. This is the reality check I needed to un-drink the coolaid. I was pretty much a Jeff nut huger. “No. Not Jeff. He would never.” I would think. But it is clear he is not a proper strength coach and should remove that from his title on his videos and bio. Keep up the good work:)

    I just watched the SBD Taiwan 74kg male category today and the national champion barely push 140kg on bench press with an arching back and shaky arms. Consider Jeff can bench multiple 140kg with a steady pace, i think Jeff definitely can bench a maximum of 160kg ++ with proper arching technique too!
    Hail to the strongest Jeff

  • The sad truth about this is that he is making a lot more money LYING to a naive audience that actual coaches are making working 1 on 1 with pro athletes like in the NBA or NFL.

  • The thing thats dumb about the athlean x obsession over muscle imbalances is that pretty much any “athlete” will have muscle imbalances. If you kick left foot in soccer you’ll likely have a slightly different left leg to right leg, probably slightly more bulkier as it gets used more. If you’ve been a quarterback or javelin thrower your whole life and throw right handed then same thing, you’d have a more developed right pec and right shoulder. Muscle imbalances are normal and you aren’t going to die if one of your hamstrings is more tighter than the other, or your pecs are a bit stronger than your upper back muscles.

  • I’ve given up saying anything to my wife about exercise or training.
    When she complains about her shoulder and upper back pain I just nod my head and say I hear you honey, cause she doesn’t want to try and fix the problem

  • $1000 for 45lb plates?! That’s fucking stupid. I found a rusted Olympic bar with a pair of 45’s and a pair of quarters on the side of the road back in June. It was all set out for junk. I cleaned up the hex bolt bar with a wire brush and sold it for $80. I guess I should’ve tried to ship it to some fool asses living out on the coast damn!

  • I don’t feel like wasting my time anymore writing comments when your shirt reads NEVER, EVER READ THE COMMENTS. I usually grind them out in sets of 5, with 10 minutes of rest in between that I spend listening to the podcast. This video is 1 hour and 8 minutes long, so that’s a heavy session with what used to be at least 5 comments and all that work to boost the podcast in the Youtube algorithm.

    My opening comment would have been about the first question from a caller, pertaining to how Rippetoe managed his time in college. What a stupid question. Boozing, snoring, and going from one-night stand to one-night stand, of course, always accompanied by his little orangutan (which he used to start conversations with among likely prospects for the night), usually all of these activities on one evening and multiple evenings a week. All college time is like that. Of course, these days it includes pissing off the Marxist teachers by slashing or puncturing their tyres in the parking lot, or saying all lives matter (especially white ones with stable day jobs and families to take care of), or asking questions in class about the gulags and why socialists always feel it necessary to put people in mass graves. I got plenty of practicing finishing in college, but I didn’t finish college itself. Now I’m a bottom 3%, but even that has become a useless job. Is nobody reading the comments, then?:(

  • As a guy completly new to this, at this point I don’t know who I am suppouse to listen to. I started at march this year, and I was following mostly Jeff’s advices for last 3 months. Before that I used some guides from internet that was kind of bad, as I see it now when I gain a bit more knowledge in the topic. Weirldy enough I never seen Jeffs vids as a guide to strenght but more for just defined and good looking muscle, and that’s my goal. Thanks to Covid I had to work out at home, but I followed his guides (with a little of tweaks that felt better for me specifically) and got some kind of progress that I am happy with. I thought that finally found some relaliable source of info, then all of this debunking thing started to happen. Which would be fine but following that logic, you have no more relaiablity than Jeff in my eyes And there is a ton of bashing on him from different people RN on YT. How I am suppouse to know that your vids won’t be debunked in near future, just like Jeffs are now? Who to trust?

  • I used Jeff’s Max size program and it does have a function that allows you to tract your previous lifts and he says to gradually get stronger on your main lifts but the programming didn’t allow me to do so. For example, he’ll have you pre exhaust the target muscle with an isolation movement and then do a compound lift with no rest to failure within the 6-9 rep max adjusting the weight to fail in that rep range if needed. Then rest 2 minutes between completed supersets. He’d have you do 17 total sets for chest in one workout so I’d be really really sore and it’s basically a bro split so you can’t even try to progress on anything until next week. This is not something you’d have a novice do.

  • Jeff is a fraud, but face pulls are legit.
    I see people bashing them and it seems like throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
    But…you don’t need to spend more than 3 to 5 minutes on facepulls

  • Jeff Cavaliere is a scam artist. He just is, come on. You said it perfectly, the reason he used fake weights is because he wanted to paint the perfect picture by showing his followers and possible clients that you can be really lean while also being really strong which is everybody’s dream but, in reality, pretty impossible (especially if you’re natty). So I’d say that’s a scam, plain and simple. He lied to people and finacially benefitted from it. Jeff Cavaliere is a scam artist. Let’s call him for what he really is.

  • To be a fitness guru you gotta complicate fitness, add a bunch of exercises, provide bad programs, promote gimmicks, and sound smart!

  • Interesting analysis. Your message is always well delivered but your production values have also improved which helps with this. I do think you could try elevating the camera a little bit so you are looking at rather than down at the viewer. Just a suggestion.

  • An ex bf got me one of Jeff’s 90 day programs back in the day. I went over it a bunch of times and all I could think was “there’s gotta be something I’m missing, this can’t be the whole thing”
    Yeah, it sucked. It felt incomplete. I never started it and I’m glad lol

  • I got jeff’s program 2 years ago and guess what! I stopped using the program after 2 months. Waste of time. There are a lot programs in youtube you can get for free that is way better than the athlene x program.

  • Alright, I said in the past, I didn’t care about fake weight thing because I didn’t follow him for how much he lift. Now I changed my mind, I care especially of the whole bunch of mistakes that everybody is bringing up and what you showed in the last two videos. Again I say I benefited from him in other stuff (not strength training) but I believe it’s time to unfollow and move on

  • Does anyone have any recommendations for the “perfect” full body home workout using body-weight exercises? I’ve been following the one on Athlean X for the past month or 2, but I guess it looks like he’s probably not the best guy to be listening to lol. Would be much appreciated!

  • That perfect back workout is brutal why would u pair a compound lift with another compound lift that use a lot of the same muscles its like he just said yeah put that with that and throw that in their too perfect! And that’s a shit load of volume ur back is gonna be toast before u even get to the end unless ur an advanced lifter or enhanced

  • I bought two programs and to quote my brother:
    “You’ve been doing that program for 1 year and look the same”
    Although I am lot healthier and do feel it prepared me to start my training with the core compound lifts. Honestly it does not focus on progressive overload, if your goal is to increase strength the x is not for you.

  • Hey, Alec. Physical Therapy student that’s been strength training for 12 years here. If you want some perspective on current PT practices hit me up

  • I have to say, I originally came to be aware of you on Jason Blaha’s channel. I found your original videos inspirational. I definitely wanted to be as strong as you. This whole Athlean x witchhunt however has been such a turnoff. I don’t even watch nor like his channel particularly because I have different goals than what he teaches and I have always preferred personalized coaching plans. But as someone in the market for a new coach (Jason could only take me so far) this obsession with trying to prove your value through discrediting a competitor has been so transparent. I would NEVER EVER EVER hire you now. Do you know how jealous and petty this makes you look? And I’m saying this constructively. It stamps you as a the exact thing I believe you were trying to achieve by making these videos a desperate youtube fitness wannabe trying so hard to get attention. If you were good you wouldn’t have to try so hard to convince people you are. Jason was right about you when he said you had “little man syndrome”. Just wish you had never done this to yourself.

  • we need time stamps in the descriptions, so we just have to listen to the interesting questions (and answers). poor rip should be the only one hearing all of them, but he makes his living out of that so its perhabs destiny…

  • This a comment i made in curlean x video 2 weeks ago and is more relevant after watching your video
    I went back and watched jeffs video
    Which study is he referring to when he says strength training does not lead to size increase past newbies gains?
    So screw programs like Nsuns, and people like larry wheels eh.
    Complete horses#!t
    When he says increase the number of sets to 8 from 5 at 85% RM, he doesn’t talk about accessory or compound moment and calls it progressive overload..
    So earlier if you were spending 2 hours in the gym, as per him the easiest way to do progressive overload is to spend 3 hours now.. so as you want to do progressive overload, you may end up spending the whole day at the gym doing 20 sets after a year. Same goes for the progressive overload way he explains for deadlifts, just keep adding height of the platform till you are standing on a 5 feet tall platform, coz screw hip rom and screw common sense.
    Bullcrap again.

  • His perfect total body workout is great though been following it since 4 months now and getting great results. progression is like stronglifts 5×5

    Workout A:
    1. 3D Lunge Warmup 2-3 x 7 Reps each direction

    4. Barbell Bench Press 3 x 5

    5. Weighted Chin Ups 3 x 6 10 to failure

    6. DB Farmer’s Carries 3-4 x 50 steps
    7. Face Pulls 2 x 12 ( using 12 sets of 1 mentality)

    Workout B:

    1. 3D Lunge Warmup 2-3 x 7 Reps each direction

    2. Deadlifts 3 x 5

    3. Barbell Squats or Barbell Reverse Lunges 3-4 x 10

    4. Barbell OHP 3 x 5

    5. Barbell Rows 3 x 10-12

    6. DB Overhead Farmer’s Carries 3-4 50 steps
    7. Face Pulls or other corrective ( using 12 sets of 1 mentality)

  • Anyone who mentions Jeff’s physique as a claim to authority, I would say he clearly knows what he’s doing and what works for him, but he clearly is full of crap with the stuff he is saying out loud and selling.

    I really don’t think Jeff himself does half of the crap he spews out to the internet.

  • Rip is the best example of someone who repeats right wing propaganda wholesale without any attempt at thought or consideration. Straight from Facebook to his mouth. Stunning

  • Dude the same thing is happening in the martial arts community…this one lady had lied and gotten smashed by real dudes in the martial arts community

  • Bought AX-1 to perform in the offseason for basketball back in 2018. I will say that the program has a solid progression for conditioning, and I still do a lot of those conditioning workouts in the offseason. The strength part of the program is complete crap, though. It never had me lift under 8 reps. Not one time. There was no progression that I could see. It just said in the description to “try and lift more weight each week.” Also the plyometric training was done to failure. I learned not to do that when I was younger because I tweaked my ankle doing that, so I just did sets of 5.

  • Youtube commenters are the great philosophers of the 21st century, we are the Aristotles and Platos of the world… wide web. Rip is stuck in the 20th century with archaic textbooks and newspapers

  • Hey Alec, I know you said not to reveal any info, and I don’t know if this crosses the line, but I would just say that his paid workouts are not that different from his perfect workout series.
    As to progressive overload, I have one of his old programs and he does not talk too much about what that means except in rest periods, he really hangs his hat on not resting too long. I have another program which was his newest one until about a year ago and the he does have an introductory video, but just explains exercises rather than the point of them.
    Another thing I wanted to mention and do not want to seem to defend him too much, but his rep calculators are very conservative, I think you can access that for free but not sure.
    Thanks for the content Alec, You are insane, really want to try out your vertical Jump program.

  • I took his “Shreded” program 2 months ago and he has 5 levels for each exercise on level 5 I truly believe a normal person would die I made it to level 3 max and for some sets even level 2 seemed insane each day I finished the sets with a sensation im going to have a heart attack I switched to Coach Greg thats a true trainer

  • Enough already! I’m not a cheerleader for Athlean-X, but your continuous repetition of the same points are getting boring. Please, just shut up about it now.

  • I was watching this video and there is good footage from a Wichita Falls City Council meeting at 7:20-ish.

  • Bro that point at 18:13kills me. Jeff is no different from the fucking GOATA idiots or Joel Seedman saying that stupid shit. If you want to get more into debunking these people, check out Zach Telander’s channel.

  • On the “Perfect form/posture” thing, I can personally attest to how concerns over being “perfect” can really dissuade people from working out. Not too long ago, I had a friend ask me for a bit of advice as he wanted to start working out (I’ve only done it for 2 years, but it’s better than nothing) and one of his concerns was that different videos and guides for beginners would say conflicting, but scary stuff, like “Don’t let your knees pass your toes on a squat or you’ll seriously hurt yourself.”

  • My high school guidance counselor told me I shouldn’t bother applying to college, because I wouldn’t get in. Now I have my M.D. and board-certified in diagnostic radiology. Dream job that pays very well. Don’t let anyone discourage you from achieving your dreams!

  • People who are desperate for plates. Just go buy the caveman molds and start arts and crafts. Its easy, effective, and cheap (comparatively). Not counting the mold, a 45 costs about 5 bucks per. make a bunch and sell em, if you want.

  • I bought two of his programs, and even though it is sometimes suggested to increase the weight or reps from session to session, the programs change structure wayy to much, meaning, in a 12 week program, there are say, 4 segments of 3 weeks, all of them VERY different from each other, making it extremely hard to follow any kind of measurable progression…..I didn’t finish either one of them, I got costochondritis out of doing one of them thanks to the piss poor programming of weighted dips, as well as a torn pec due to a 4RM prescribed at the end of the workout….till before all of this fake weight shit happened I fell trap into the whole “you can have it all, looks, strength and performance thing”, and always thought it was actually a problem with me, the culprit of my lack of progress…Needless to say, money wasted

  • I came here with a pretty high opinion of Jeff expecting to see some nobody punching above his weight for attention… instead I am genuinely impressed with the arguments you made.
    I don’t like the fact that all the youtubers I’ve been listening to are apparently an echo chamber. This is the first time I’ve heard anything but praise for Jeff.

    I haven’t made up my mind one way or the other, but I do appreciate the effort you went to laying out your points logically and with sources.

  • I think the reality is beginners don’t need that much information and the sheer amount they’re bombarded with actually confuses them and makes them worse at making progress.

    They need to know:

    A few basic movement patterns such as horizontal press/pull, vertical press/pull, squat and hip hinge. Variations and a few unilateral versions or a few isolation movements fine. Lunges, hip thrusts, knee ups, curls ok fine but not too many don’t go overboard with a million different exercises and make it clear the big compound movements are the most important to focus on.

    The form for the basic lifts, why to use that form, how to avoid injury and why wrong form causes injury, what muscles each lift is working including the difference between compound and isolation exercises.

    -What frequency and intensity is and how they need to be balanced. The importance of progressive overload and how to program frequency, intensity in a single workout and over the week and how to program progressive overload over months

    A few other things like nutrition, stretching, importance of general fitness and cardio

    that’s it

    You could make probably a 1hr video to tell beginners all they need to know until they hit intermediate or even close to advanced stage.

    But that doesn’t bring in profit. So some make millions of videos “the new essential bicep workout you need to start doing right now!” and sell loads of programs filled with fluff. Beginners end up thinking there are a billion essential exercises evidenced when you see any try to write a program for themselves. “well I need barbell curls because this channel said it’s essential but I also need hammer curls because this other guy said it’s the best bicep workout and I need preacher curls and cheat curls and strict curls and etc.” They end up getting confused and trying to do everything afraid to drop anything as they think everything is essential due to these crazy videos “the best X workout you NEED to start doing RIGHT NOW” It’s all garbage

    My message to anyone following a program written by Jeff is to go onto a bodybuilding forum and ask the nice people in there to help you out with a simple beginner PPL routine with a focus on compounds, or full body 2x or 3x per week routine, or even just follow stronglifts 5*5. You’ll do way better with anything like that than following a program filled with fluff with bad programming and no progressive overload system in place which is what Jeff sells.

  • Yes, I have purchased his programs and I’m looking at the one he features CT Fletcher. The progressive overload is not mentioned in this program from what I can tell, but since I purchased it, he’s added what he calls 400 rep challenges. If you can do the 400 rep challenge in faster time, it would show you have progressed. When this program first came out (I bought it the day it did) the 400 rep challenges were not in this program. 100 dumbell presses, 200 dumbell front squats and 100 dumbell arm “press outs” I’m sure you’d call stupid

  • Man i love this. Once exposing him is no longer exposing him please just keep trolling him. I promise to watch every single one haha.

  • Enkiri I just emailed you before seeing this video.
    So I have the first AthleanX. Only got through the 1st month because I had to have surgery.
    But that 1st month basically what you do is you go through a five day a week program with a push day, conditioning day (sprints or ladder drills, etc.), then a leg day, another conditioning day, a pull day, then rest two days.
    The workouts are different every day. So on week 2 you aren’t doing the same exercises you are doing on week one at all. Then after a month you basically do a test with set standards to write yourself with. A 100 push UPS as fast as you can do them (rest as needed), 100 squats same way, 100 inverted rows, then 100 full situps. Then I guess if you post your results you’re ranked among other members to give you motivation or something.

  • TLDR: I think his AX-1 program is good for the general public but people who are more serious will “graduate” from Jeff.

    Little late on the comment here but i have bought his AX-1 and AX-2 program and some of his NXT workouts. Heres my personal opinion.

    AX-1: This is honestly not a bad program for your average person that is trying to get into general good health. When I first started I did not enjoy going to the gym but it got me started because it was interesting. it was 3 days of lifting push/pull/legs and 2 days of conditioning. It had some challenges for body weight exercises every month and the goal was to beat your time every month to show progression. This honestly got me into great conditioning shape, i was able to mountain bike better, run more, etc. It was a 3 month program, i was satisfied with results and got AX-2

    Ax-2: Heres where i started to question a lot, it was very disorganized and kinda hodgepodge random workouts.
    NXT: same as above

    In general I think his AX-1 program is good for the general public, for some people though they will graduate and learn that there are better ways to get strength and more athletic. I am now doing 5/3/1 for strength and theres a huge difference in the amount of strength I gain compared to any of his programs.

  • i stopped watching his videos as well because there was so much information that I just confused myself. Theres also so much fluff and nonsense in his videos that could have been condensed into a 5 minute video. The workout programs that I did choose were so unsustainable, even the ones that he intends for beginners to do, that I just couldnt stick to them. Instead, I switched to other more reliable channels, Jeff Nippard, Renaissance Periodization, Jeremy Ethier, Fitness FAQs, Scott Herman, and many more. Then, I use what I learn to make my own programs, and not blindly follow Jeff Cavaliere. Suddenly, Im making more progress even during quarantine compared to before quarantine when I was religiously following Jeff Cavaliere.

  • To answer your question: I did one of Jeff’s programs. Each week was harder than the last. When an exercise repeats, he does indeed always mention you have to do more this time than last time, either add more weight, or do more reps. He constantly mentions this. Is that lip service to progressive overload? I don’t know, but it doesn’t seem that way. He does however program some explosive things at the end of workouts, to fully tire out the muscles. Do you have references that this is stupid, as you claim? I’m honestly asking, I don’t know enough about the human body.

  • Yeah, well, he is a strength coach because he’s certified as one. It’s like saying someone with a PhD isn’t a doctor, just because it’s your opinion doesn’t make it so.

  • Hey Alec, I bought both AX1 and AX2 (the beginner and intermediate programs). I wish I could just send you my login info so you could look at it yourself! Basically, for an exercise it’ll say “DB Bulgarian Split Squats 3 sets, 12RM, 60 secs of rest between sets.” He explains that by saying “use as much weight as you can so you can do 12 reps, not more, not less with good form.” But that’s pretty much where it stops. There was really no sense of progression besides putting more weight on the bar and most of the time it wouldn’t even really be possible because of the maxing out and HIIT cardio on off days. There are form videos but he has supposedly pro athletes or at least people experienced with his program come and demonstrate the exercises, but oftentimes I have a hard time even believing some of them were athletes at all because their form is fucking TERRIBLE. Never mind that in AX1 and AX2 I can remember barbell squatting, deadlifting, and barbell benching once or twice. In the two years I did the programs. If I could get my money back I would. I’ve been doing Jeff Nippard’s Fundamentals program for 9 weeks and I’ve seen great gains. Far more progress. Happy with it. Would buy again.

  • Great video excellent objective content. Strength is not bodybuilding guess that’s where Jeff and his subs are confused keep up the good work ��️��

  • If Jeff told people that there’s 5 or 6 main lifts and to progressive overload on a consistent basis doesn’t sell a lot of programs lol

  • Even for bodybuilding purpose he’s “meh” at best. Guys at 3dmj, RP strength,etc are way better (and teach progressive overload since you need it lol)

  • Jake man get in crossfit programming videos…also start VLOGGING❤….LOVE YOUR CONTENT got to learn a LOTTTT about programming workouts that involve all aspects of fitness strength, speed, explosiveness, steady and HIIT cardio mobility, everything THANK YOU SOO MUCH! One day would definitely like to meet you guys in fitness culture LOVE FROM INDIA❤

  • Looks like unshredded unsports nonscience just joined on ganging up on Tyrone.Do they really need to team up as 3 against one?But against you even all 3 of them combined cant win.Pathetic.

  • i would say thats not just not knowing the Valsalva maneuver, but a big lack of common sense, if you’re going down with heavy ass weight you dont wanna go without any air in your body, you’re asking to pass out

  • That shit happened with public schools because privatizers of both political parties did all they could to defund, underpay, and bureaucratize so that public school systems could hardly function. These neoliberal govt fucks (and “neoliberal” does not refer to any political party) would love if the public school system ended entirely and was replaced by totally privatized system of charter schools, which would wind up like our wonderful system of private healthcare: a broken, gutted, clusterfuck of inequity and failure.
    Additionally, for a lot of people, “learning from home” leads to believing in QAnon, anti-vaxxing, and flatearth fuckery

  • Don’t you sort of debunk your own point? You are jacked, athletic and strong? All while being (hopefully) natural? I mean obviously there’s limits and while you’re strong, athletic and jacked you aren’t at the max natural level for any of those trees but still, with perhaps a decade of training you can obtain all 3

  • I think I am lost here why are you doing full upper body workout but you said you are doing chest only it’s more like a full upper body workout

  • I want to buy the new starting strength bar, but it appears buddy Capps is having a lot of issues with incorrect lead times as advertised and it not responding to customers who purchased them.

    Please tell them to fix this. I would rather get a SS barbell for this program then an Ohio power bar, but I won’t wait 4 months to get my bar when they say the least time is 8 weeks.

    Just tell them to be upfront

  • His programs are there on torrents, they are shit for the most part. Unless you are an absolute beginner it would be a waste of your time to read even the titles and that’s the only thing Jeff has spent time making up.

  • Hi Steve, I am from Germany ����. I really love you but vanilla gorilla is the best. Keep going. I am looking forward for your next videos. ��

  • I agree that AthleanX is probably not the way to go if you wanna get big and strong in the serious sense of that phrase. I did sign up to AthleanX program for 90 days. For 90 bucks it’s a decent program, especially for people at the beginning of their fitness journey. And you have lifetime access to all the new content for that program.The dude does a good job in keeping beginners motivated to work hard. But there are quite a lot of issues with his program namely the pacing of it all and the results there of. Don’t even get me started on the diet plans ��

  • Great content bro! I started a diet two months ago, set a fixed time to go to sleep every night and got a hometrainer and I already lost 16 pounds and feel much better!
