    48:05 – Sometimes I feel hip pain when I Squat or do Sumo deadlift. Can you suggest reasons why?

  • Great discussion. 56 next month and went from 89kg to 71kg now by just dropping portion size just a little over a year. Up to 11 chin ups and 5 pull ups, 15 dips on the pull up rig. I only use 6kn and 15kg weights along with resistance bands 15-22KG range. I do this to avoid injury because I would over do the weights no doubt.

  • Hey Lee! Aren’t stretches always supposed to be done after workouts, not before as warm-up? I thought stretching beforehand can be dangerous.

  • I lost over 200 I lost over a hundred pounds I weigh ball over 300 lb I was a severe diabetic since April I’ve been walking exercising and everything now I weigh 175 22% body fat 30% muscle mass is that good

  • Try making chicken curry by cooking with Indian chicken spice or using garam masala where you can get from superstore or local Indian store, and using Greek yogurt or regular yogurt to give extra cream taste instead of using regular cream.

  • Thanks Lee for this warm up video, because I don’t do them, but I must! I do stretch my thighs and my knees pop, but then it makes it all the better. I’m 45, so…

  • Lee, a very very good question here. I have a “big belly” with thinny abs. So it’s not the fat going out it’s the muscles. How I bring them to their place, can you make a video about this? Greets!

  • I have been watching a few of Lee’s videos and they are awesome!  I also like that he gives feeback to questions like below on how often to do this routine every other day.

  • hi lee to i’m 18 years old, 330 pounds, hight 6,2 if I was to grind an go to the gym an stay in a caloric deficit, while going to the gym consistently and hitting my macros,is there a good possibility i could get in that six pack big muscular shape i want to obtain,also think you for all the value you give through this channel,god bless you an your family bro

  • Neat exercises Mr. Haward! One important question, how much rest is recommended between each exercise? Since the title said “5 minute Home Ab Workout”, I assume there is no rest at all between each excersise am I correct?

  • Awesome Video Lee, very informative and helpful content!!! Serious question regarding gut health and digestion. How many times do you go to the bathroom per day with all that massive amount of food? Thank you very much and keep going!!!

  • Hey lee great video…..I have been not in any kind of gym or wrkout fr long tym…my belly comes out….nw I wnt to run andexercise without ging to gym suggest me plss

  • thanks for this video lee, i pulled a muscle in my back neck area from hanging down on pull-ups. I do warm-up but im thinking I need to change my warmup routine

  • Great video Lee! Can I do these type of workouts 7 days a week? I’ve done it for the past 3 months and I feel great moving my whole body every day. I’m just worried about those gains, is it enough or do you need to focus each muscle group harder with volume in a splitroutine to make them grow?

  • Don’t get the views you deserve. Been following you 10+ years and even with 200k + subscribers you didn’t break 1k views. What’s happened Lee. You should have far more views and far more subscribers

  • Great video. Find a healthy balanced approach to eating that you enjoy so you stick with it. Consistency make healthier choices. ����

  • No warm-up exercises for the Penis? The Penis is a very important Body Part. Why skip it? It too needs some rotational and circular movement exercises…

  • Hey Lee, I love the protein shake coffee can’t wait to try that and the big salads or even veg is a great idea to fill up. A great video, thanks ��

  • I’ve been doing total body workouts lately. I always start with my bodyweight exercises first. If I do the weights first my body is to fatigued to do Pull Ups and Dips.

  • You got me inspired to start lifting again…not out of shape just haven’t worked out in 5 years, I just gotta go hard and stay consistent like you said.

    Please help.. Thanx!

  • What are those salads called? I’m guessing you got them from Costco? I’m in Canada too.

    Also, don’t you find the greek yogurt a bit of an odd taste as a salad dressing? Do you mix it with regular dressing or just straight yogurt?


  • Great discussion on all topics guys. I’ve definitely been thinking a lot about including yoga into my active bodybuilding lifestyle.

  • This was really helpful. I love your common sense and real approach to maintaining a healthy lean body weight and lifestyle. Great ideas I plan to use… love the yogurt for dressing! I do struggle to get in the protein so little additions(in coffee) are great tips. ��❤️

  • It sounded like you said “That’s what I’ll be keeping track of my sex with” when you referred to the stopwatch app!  Sets, sex, both are good.

  • Wow! your ab workout is a killer. couldn’t finished it the first day. After a week I’m beginning to notice top 4 abs showing themselves. bottom 2 are still covered up by love handles. btw, i’m holding each of your ab exercises for 60 seconds. After it i’m doing my normal workout routine. many thanks.and  train hard

  • Lee I need help man, my ass (Glutes) and quads get really big. I also think I have a bit of anterior pelvic tilt, which makes my ass look even bigger and kind of unproportioned. Should I stop doing legs for a while to actually get some Atrophy? Also what can u do for pelvic tilt? Thanks man

  • Tried it this a.m. and liked it.  Those Russian Twists and Toe Touchers are good and tough.  I didn’t rest between exercises, but see how it would be necessary as the work intervals get longer.  

  • Hi Lee I generally warm up with ten minutes on the cross trainer. I will incorporate this into my workout but should I do this before or after my cross trainer warm up?

  • I’m glad you plan on making more of these videos. Variety is important in healthy eating or it quickly becomes miserable and unenjoyable like you said

  • Awesome, I have been trying to find a complete ab workout.

    Hey Lee, if I do this everyday religiously, how long would it take to turn my beer keg into a six pack?

    I have 15 pounds or less of fat in my midsection.

  • I love the push/pull method of training chest and back together. I’ve been doing that for the last 5/6 years and can’t find a better way for me to workout..I also like to do Triceps/Biceps super sets for arms

  • Great video! There is always time for a good full day of eating video. I love seeing how you have made your nutrition sustainable in your life. Over the past few years I have found it’s definitely all about small changes to your nutrition that add up over time and improve your body composition AND leave you feeling satisfied. Thanks for the perspective from another Dad trying to build muscle and stay fit! I can’t wait to check out future videos! I have seen some of your videos over the past few months but I’m finally connected so I don’t miss a video. Thanks!

  • You should speed this video up 1/2 step and put some disco music with it….
    Seriously, thanks for all of the videos..
    You do a great job and they are very helpful..

  • Nice video, to the point. I have a question about shrugs. I see people doing them with rotator cuff in front. Others do it with cuff at back by retracting the scapula. Few do it almost neutral. Which is correct? Or better? Thanks!

  • Hey Lee, coming back to this video after a long time and I noticed I can’t see your feet when you do knee bends. should I keep my feet flat on the floor or should I be on the balls of my feet when i do knee bends? Also can jumping jacks be used as a full body warm up? Thanks.

  • Thank you so much for this lee! I’ve been following your advise since the start and man it all works especially the mini set biseps

  • I find the eating time for a big salad kills it for me. I try to have a salad for a break at work and 20min later I’m still munching away.

  • Thanks for the wonderful video, Lee! I know you’ve included one set for lower back, however I would like to know or see if there are any set of workout (spine workout) that helps you recover lower backpain (which I do have) I use the belt throughout my workout session due to the lower backpain. Please advise!


  • Many years ago I worked at a gym…the owner there told me to eat cottage cheese at night before bed. Later I put it all together. Casein
