Video taken from the channel: ATHLEAN-X™


Terms like “fat free” or “all natural” are often slapped on a food item that may not be healthy at all. Check out our list of the 16 most common—and most misleading phrases&#151. The problem is, all of these buzzwords aren’t being used properly. In this video I cover the 6 biggest and most commonly misused fitness workout words and how to more accurately use them. First.

Most grammarians agree with Garner’s Modern impactful even made it onto Harvard Business Review blogger Bryan A. Garner’s list of “65 Forbidden Buzzwords.” But it’s now in the. News articles and blog posts are often full of buzzwords that are heavy on emotional impact but light on substance, and for scientific topics such as nutrition, health, medicine, and agriculture, four of the most common buzzwords are “toxins,” “natural,” “organic,” and “GMO.” These words are used prolifically and are typically stated with clear implications.

  • all of those terms are new to me!! i workout 6 days a week and am doing somewhat of a full body workout each day, which aint bad for 67 years old!! thank you so much for sharing my friend, with love from Wes!! hugs!!!

  • Nice video!

    Very good article on trending technology Buzzwords!
    http://www.techcluesblog.com/2018/09/21/top-10-most-popular-technology-buzzwords

  • Well… the first time i went into a grocery store in the US i was very confused when the lady at the counter asked how i was… i thought she actually wanted to know and answered… which seemed to make her confused… it was kinda awkward.

  • Some additional info about Peter Drucker: I mention him here not because he´s the founder of business speak or directly involved in the evolution of business terms (he did coin the phrase ´Knowledge Worker´), but he´s a very important part in making modern day corporations what they are today, and his theories have heavily influenced what corporate language has become. If you´re interested in the corporation as a concept, he´s a good place to start.

  • I hate the word “clean” because there has yet to be an acceptable of it. People bash others because they eat processed foods and sugar and then boast about how they eat clean. Meanwhile they think they’re somehow special because they eat dextrose and protein powder (I defy you to find a more processed combination) in their anabolic window.

  • I prefer dealing with cold emotionless computers to dealing with “real” people, because computers don’t (yet…) pretend they care about my life. I know (because I’ve been on the other end of these interactions!) that people on the phone don’t care if I have a nice day or not I just want them to give me the info and we can both get on with our lives. The phony friendliness the today’s corporations seem to insist on is, to my mind, creepy and intrusive but apparently, here to stay.

  • Absolutely love this this channel! I’m also studying PT and Personal Training and am trying to bring content like this to my channel

  • I watch studio c and when I saw James I was like huh I thought I clicked on a Matthias video and then I realised the greatness that is the best collab
    ��������

  • Thanks as always for the video!
    I have a question: I finished AX-1 a little while back but I’m not yet ready for AX-2.
    Should I start over with week 1 or what do you recomend? I’m gonna be able to be back in the gym beginning of April and I’m not sure if I should start again from week 1 or maybe week 5?
    Did anyone go through the same?

  • Jeff you are an awesome guy! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with public, ur workouts changed my life from around 28.9% body fat am now at 11.5-12 %:)

  • Jeff, could you do a video explaining how dextrose is used as a supplement? Been wanting to try it, but can’t find many good sources about dosage and proper use and quite frankly you know best.

  • i have managed to integrate the effective method of messaging, and have synergized with the message in this independently created and advanced piece of graphic/audible piece of media used to entertain/inform.

    change to expressed commentary: due to the synergy of the message and the life-form that is behind this televized thought commentated on an audible and visible form of media, it has come to my attention that i have picked up a desire to use the device that has been integrated into the electronic computational floating-point operations device to click the button that expresses a preference to this piece of televised media.
    it is thus that i have used this very desire to push down the button that sends a signal to the central processing unit of the electronic computational floating-point operations device to modify the state of the thusly existing entity.

  • I’ve ssen ads or intro videos about all your programmes but not the Wolverine beastmode one could yo please do one it look epic also is there a meal plan or it’s the same for all programmes. thanks 

  • I occasionally write text for the websites of small businesses to make some beer money. When I started I naively held interviews with the owners to establish the essence of their vision and business to communicate it in a way that would make them recognisable for themselves and potential clients. Little did I know that they were looking more for those generic buzzwords (young and dynamic, bespoke services, adaptive in a globalising world, etc) Those are recognisable and therefore considered quality. But the only reason they are recognisable is because they are considered quality and therefore applied. It’s self perpetuating. That’s basically how the entirety of marketing works.

  • “synergy”, “touch base”, “end of play”, and “singing from the same hymn sheet” have to be my most hated buzzwords. “Accountability” is perhaps the most insidious, precisely because the ones who bang on about it never fucking exercise it. Accountability works one way downwards. The higher up the chain you go, the more you pass the book so more “expendable” employees take the hit.

  • Jeff, which kind of exercises could i do to strengthen my core? Are planks okay to perform every day, and will those strengthen my core or will I need to switch planks up with more intense exercises? I am recovering from a slipped disc at the moment so need exercises that are not intense.

  • So I’m pretty sure we’re all here to get ripped and athlean. This involves a lot of fast twitch muscles and these muscle types also help us in sports like football and basketball. Jeff can you show us more info on fast twitch muscles and how to “activate” them so we can become explosive?

  • Is it possible you can do a video with those who have spinal issues like scoliosis or lordosis? Can these folk still weight train? Should they be avoiding any particular type of exercise?

  • Does anybody have any knowledge about his program for women? My wife was thinking about getting it. Jeff doesn’t host it though, right?

  • Georg clearly doesnt work in anything that could be referred to as “an industry”. Jargon exists to be specific, and Buzzwords are used as a shorthand for broad ideas. When I have a meeting and we talk about “optimising downstream synergistic cross-talk”, thats a very specific way of framing what we are talking about, that ensures that everyone present knows what we’re talking about. If you dont understand Jargon or Buzzwords, its probably because you’re listening to content that isnt intended for you.

  • Hi Jeff, can you please do a video on the neck strengthening exercise. I think it’s almost as important body part like ab. Thanks you.

  • The notion of sales has a bad reputation but I’ve done it successfully for ten years. The goal is to make the buying process enjoyable and if you can have genuinely enjoyable moments with clients is that really a bad thing?

  • I have a hip replacement.How can I do squats without hurting myself? I do raised pushups which work great and I look OK but wanna look better and I cant do abs like I used to because of my hip please advise.Thanks,Frank

  • jeff
    I do most of your abs thing but as you said you cant see abs if you have tooo much fat you should do a little fat burning vidoes

  • I like the whole running theme of acronyms straight down to the closing jokes. Well written video with awesome info from a knowledgeable source.

  • This is my favorite Studio C sketch because I have sat in meetings that have explained as much. These guys just do it more eloquently.

  • I’ve applied to a couple of marketing companies in the past and this reminds me of how they would describe their company, except in my case I was thinking, “What would I be doing?” and sometimes the answer was that “Event Sales Associate” was just standing behind a booth for five hours. I’m totally going to share this on LinkedIn.

  • @ATHLEAN-X™  Hello man.

    Can you please I’m literally begging you make a video on why “Vegan Gains”channel, is retarded. He has some controversial nutritional advice, and I would like to hear you opinion on him, and if you agree or disagree. 

    At least take a look at his videos man.

  • Businesses wan you to be part of a family. Tech businesses are full of aspies that meltdown. Sometimes screaming, sometimes regress to babyishness. Do you want to come down the pub and spend time with us? No! It dodges the drama to an extent but alienates you from them.

  • Hi Jeff, I like your videos they’re very interesting and helpful for me. I’ve got a question. I train calisthenics and I’m pretty satisfied with results and my muscles, but I would like to get ripped and go below 10 percentage of body fat. I’m 19 years old is cutting an amount of calories harmful to my body and growth? Are cardio and burning fat routines better for me to burn fat? Thank you in advance!

  • Sarah Z made a really good video talking about companies trying to outwardly become too cozy and how it is honestly a really bad thing for us as consumers, especially the younger generations that might be growing up in a world where they are “friends” with these companies.

  • great stuff Jeff, but you IMO, should stop ranting. I think you should stick to what you are good at and be above the situation. Don’t stoop to the levels of the inferiors. You are still the man. 

  • Being in the corporate world and having been for quite sometime, that is pretty valid. And it’s so funny that the people who speak that kind of vague gibberish ( not the ones who actually use simple yet meaningful words that make sense) are the ones who are valued in corporate. Just kill me now.

  • When this starts to make sense to you then you should either implement network initiative to upscale your vertical matrix placement or run

  • Hey Jeff, I’ve been receiving yours emails and they’re all resourceful and right to the point. It just kills me that I’m not able to purchase the program at this time. I incorporate your tutorials to my workouts and I know I’m not 100% but at least I know I’m headed in the right direction..awesome work you do

  • I like you.:-)
    Reminds me of the Marx Brothers’ “A Night At the Opera”:
    “Oh, that’s all right, that’s in every contract, that’s what they call a sanity clause.” “Ha! You can’t fool me! There ain’t no sanity clause!”

  • 4:16 that whole segment plays as one testiomny to my assesrtion that the notion of coroporations being inherently right wing is now a thing of the past. The in thing for many years has been collectivist mantras so naturally Corporations have followed the money so it will be interesting to see how Corporations act going forward into a social paradigm shift that is against collectivist mantras. “Working here makes me feel a part of one big family.” Fuck off. I’m here to provide for my real family. Will be the increasing response in my opinion.

  • Moving forward i’d like to see you embrace the core values of our synergistic and diverse culture. Start with the low hanging fruit that have just come up on the radar and keep embracing the blue sky thinking. Clear?

  • “We are totally against all forms of racism and bullying and indeed this behaviour is entirely at odds with the brand values of the Carphone Warehouse. As a result we feel that as long as this continues we are unable to associate our brand with the programme.” The Carphone (?) Warehouse

  • I’ve done a research project and written a small book on Propaganda when I was in college. Will have to edit it and get it out to where it can pass for an actual book later, but I covered Propaganda and it’s effects on humanity within the United States. So, in short, I generally don’t fall for a lot of corporate hogwash nowadays. I think it’s better to be more honest as everything else annoys me. Then there are the stupid, overly technical names for job positions, such as any of the following:

    1.) Recieving Associate (Real thing: Truck Unloader)
    2.) Horizontal Deconstruction Specialist (RT: Recycler)
    3.) Courtesy clerk (Cashier)
    4.) Regional Functionality Officer (Day-time guard)
    5.) Environmental Maintenance Officer (Garbage Man)

    Is this more political correct bs? Because it sounds like its just more corporate jargon created solely for the purpose of making people in low end positions feel better about themselves. Kinda sad, really…

  • I completely agree. It’s a false flag that hides corruption. I agree, drop the fluff, drop the emotives, drop all the dressing that scumbags can hide behind. Straight simple language and let people decide on their own.

  • You get this in interviews too. “So, why do you want the job?”

    “Because I fucking need the money, Karen, not because I love the thought of pushing your bullshit products to the public and dressing them in icing and fairy dust.”

  • Watching this video really reminds me of how I’ve been job hunting for months and wish German job listing wouldn’t use English job titles in an attempt to sound fancier at the cost of actually being descriptive.

    Well, that, and figuring out an answer to the question “why do you want to work for us” that isn’t “I want to earn money and stop living at my parents’ place” is nigh impossible for me.

  • I was fired from my role with NAB just a few days ago. A place so consumed with insufferable fucken bullshit, I was glad they fired me rather than me having to ask:P It was all about the CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE, something that my retarded wilting lily of a team leader constantly said, as if not picking up the phone for their call and answering their questions in a timely manner was not enough. We apparently had to be friends with the people on the other end of the phone.

    Mind you, we’re going through a Royal Commission into how retarded banks have been over the years, abusing the power given to them by the state (funny how that always happens), and their HR and PR teams have come to this novel idea that the way to make customers like banks again is to ask them about their holidays when they’ve called up for a credit card.

    It was hellish, and I’m glad to be gone.

  • Isn’t it kind of sinister in and of itself to ask for engagement in the eyes of the youtube algorithm under the veil of genuine interest in our perspective? If you profit, it can’t be genuine?

  • I know you posted this ages ago, but I’m catching up, having joined only recently. Yep, used to work for IBM, did a business in computing degree. Ah, business jargon bullshit speak. Lush. I lasted about 4 years then fucked off to become an actor. I was a brilliant liar by then.

  • I remember the best motivating jargon/ business speak from my last workplace, was a supervisor from Manchester screaming “start fucking sparking” repeatedly. At new starts.

  • Businesses trying to be your friend seems far more dishonest and underhand. Innocent Smoothies always used to (they may still, I haven’t bought one in a while) put things on their bottles like “stop by our offices for a coffee and a game of ping pong” Oh do fuck off.

  • I’ve never heard corporate jargon spoken in real life because my old bosses weren’t native English speakers so they’d talk to us like actual human beings.

  • Did you miss “precision” as a reason for jargon?

    I recognize that the title says “corporate” but you also talked about DNA for quite a bit.

  • Hey Jeff! I was wondering if you could make a video regarding “weightlifters shoulder”/ AC joint pain from excessive lifting. It”s been affecting me for months and now even prevents me from doing any kind of upper body movement. Thanks!

  • If you want to use Netflix like you’re in another country, use a TOR proxy. The one I use allows me to get an IP address from any one of dozens of countries

  • Hey Jeff, I love the videos that you put up every week they are great motivation for me. I wanted to know if it is at all possible to do a video on some advice on how to be active and stay fit with DESK JOBS. This is becoming an issue for me and I try to make it work by taking the stairs and other things. Just could really use Ur insight on this. Please help. Thanks in advance

  • I was a meat department manager at a supermarket for many years. When the major hot dog manufacturers started making their packages 13 and 14 ounces instead of a full pound, and charging the same amount, a representative from Kraft told me that they were “right sizing” the packages. I couldn’t get them to admit that they raised the price per pound, they kept repeating the “right sizing” phrase over and over.

  • FYI “laminar boundary layer” 1:02 is a technical thing if you’re talking to engineers, so I wouldn’t really call it jargon or a buzzword…
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEg896XFgkw

  • As someone who works in the corporate world I have to say that people who are all “Working at X makes me feel like we’re building a better future” make me gag.

    Meanwhile at a digital conference I asked our CTO (10000 employee company) what their stance was on net neutrality.

  • One of my more cringe memories of school is being rather proud of the fact that I could pronounce Dexoyribonucleic acid before all of my peers. That is all.

  • The word synergy gets used unironically in gaming. I play StarCraft 2, a lot…and there’s always talk of units having synergy together

  • Corporations likely do this because they realize they get more productivity, loyalty, and profit out of people that care, AND they also recognize the existential dilemma man faces to find meaning. Sadly, it’s a cheap and disgusting counterfeit of where meaning is actually supposed to come from Knowing God, loving Him, and sharing Him with others until His return to create heaven on earth which has always been His plan and is why He created us with the vacuous need to find meaning… so we’d search and find Him. But apple and other corporations are more than happy to step into His rightful place.

  • I have subscribed to both of these (Matthias & studio c)and had no idea this existed. This is awesome I had been thinking the two channel should combined video this is freaking amazing

  • Think you need to do a new one about how the British language has changed over the past several years. The BBC would make such a great topic for a man of your skill and talent. Thanks for doing what you do Georg. “…just a thought”

  • OMG I have hated that for years. Especially use of war or sports metaphors for sissy soyboy corporate game playing. I have a friend getting a grad degree who has me proofread her assignments. 90% of her papers are jargon loaded bullshit…which she knows, but if she uses concise and clear statements her profs mark her down. I’ve seen the crap articles she has to read in her research, social science (itself a pseudoscience) bullshit. No wonder nothing gets done right. People are trained to be brain dead bullshitters.

  • Mobility means control through your entire ROM. Anyone who knows how to train for mobility right, knows that static stretching doesn’t get you anywhere. You need to be able to control your flexibility all the way through to the end range which helps prevent injury too. Functional Range Conditioning for example is a great example of this. I believe everyone should add real mobility work to there workouts and by that I don’t mean static stretching. Other then that I agree with everything else you said!

  • Johnson, we’ll need to circle back, touch base, re-ideate and make sure the juice is worth the squeeze before we pull the trigger on the Anson-Williams aquisition

  • Jeff, thanks for the laugh.   FYI, I killed it today in the goal line stand.  My body didn’t get fatigued as my form was just as explosive in round four (4) as it was in round one (1).  I was only was challenged by the thin air due to the elevation here in Calgary.  

    Question for you: Do you recommend using a heart rate monitor?  If so, can this be added as an option to record in the ax portal? 

    I have been using a heart rate monitor for quite some time and have just thought of using it to figure out my BMR.  What is your opinion on activity monitors as I currently use the BlueHR by Wahoo and the Jawbone Up24.  

    I’ve been considering switching to another brand to see how well I am sleeping.  I think using a heart rate monitor overnight is a better indicator of how well one rests versus the Jawbone. Any suggestions or thoughts?

  • I know I’m late to the party, but I strongly agree with your last statement and I wanted to show an example.
    Most companies will do all they can to try and sell you a product, saying everything they make is great with no drawbacks whatsoever. It makes sense they’re the only ones who will do that anyway but it’s inherently dishonest and people know it. It’s one reason I always go looking for negative reviews; I’m already interested in the product, but once I buy it I’m going to have to live with those negatives, so I need to know what they are and if I’ll be fine with it.

    But there’s at least one company I’ve seen that advertises their things differently. Geissele Automatics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypb5HXdDJhc
    In their videos, the guy who runs the company is an engineer, and he tells you very explicitly but in simple terms how each product works and why you would want it, as well as the problems inherent with that product. I was floored when I saw they actually had the balls to handle it that way, I mean I actually felt like I learned something from what is essentially an ad of all things! This company is widely regarded as one of the best for rifle triggers and it’s not hard to see why when watching this video. I wish more companies would take up this method.

  • “At AT&T we’re not offering cell phones, we’re offering an experience.” We have heard this talk from corporations for years. I swear I can’t roll my eyes hard enough when I hear it. No, you aren’t ‘offering’ an experience. It’s just a phone, dude. Checking my Twitter is not a moment of transcendence that drops me into the stream of conscientiousness, it just lets me know what Kris Bryant is doing with his wife. The crazy thing is that no one falls for this crap…including the people that work there. I’d love a bit more honesty. “Here,we have a phone that costs blah blah and does blah blah”. Sign me up for that one.

  • I live in Newcastle, and over the past year there was been a new mini shopping center constructed called “stack”. Its made out of old shipping containers stacked up like Lego blocks and hollwed out to makes cafes, bars, stores act. All decced out in the hipster style of making things out of junk and exposed piping and bare lightbulbs everywhere to seem edgy and ” hip man”. That’s fine I guess I mean Newcastle is pretty much an orgy of hipster trendy micro bars and funky quirky restruants and over priced fashion retailers. But the part that bugs me above all this is the namby pamby buzz words and companies trying to be “innovative” and “fresh”. By calling this place for example, with perhaps the most pretentious and wanktastical term i m hearing everywhere latley, ” a social hub”. HUB. Fucking hub. They renamed the fucking mess hall in my old high school “the hub” as well as the buildings “aspire block” and “inspire studio” instead of block A,B,C so on.

    I hate the robotic and soulessness of the business bitch dystopian black mirror of the 21st century west. But its just even creepier if that soulless Nazi, matrix robot is wearing a handle bar moustache with skinny jeans trying to lure you into micro brewery with his fancy progressive and new age technical hippy dippy hypno words, so they can wire your brain to the social networking community hub.

  • Jeff! How did you forget about all the bros spreading misinformation between supersets and compound set!?! That shit boggles my mind…

  • Synergy is used sincerely in gaming; either team games or games like Starcraft where youre building armies of different unit types.

  • I cannot take possible, company BS talk. I feel it’s possibly confusing, does not get to the point and possibly just does not communicate, clearly what they want you to do or what they want to do. I feel.

  • I have actually both used & heard synergy used sincerely. One instance is in gaming: in certain games synergy is a word often used to describe how one thing complements another thing well, and I like the word as being a synonym for ‘complementary’ or more specifically a complementary set that augment each other.

  • When making my CV and writing cover letters I hate having to sound so ingenuine. I want a job, I am qualified for the job, let me just write down the qualifications dispassionately.
