  • Really good advice elliott.

    I hope he can break out of his rut and continue the path he had started so well.

    Come check out my own videos too guys. I update my channel daily!

  • Man oh man Paul! I dont know what I would do without my faily dose from you! Not to mentiin its as if your in my jead recently all your content has been right on the money for what I need. Also now that Kibira is in Tampa I am begining to think its in the air down there and may be time for a move. To be able to train with you, Layne Kibira while working to my goal of going on stage would be spectacular. Not to mention It would be much easier to compete at ocb Tampa for my debut show…hmm something to really think about looking into I suppose.

  • This is the simple truth.
    Every word he says is right at the point: nowadays, even more than ever because there are so many temptations, it is important to plan your life if you don’t want to give in to chance.
    Also, the biggest mistake that one can do is to succumb to all the external pressure coming from friends, family members and co-workers, full with good-intentions-or-actually-not, who might just laugh in your face for having the discipline to plan, while the majority of the people don’t even know what they are going to do in the next hour planning A WHOLE DAY AHEAD? A WEEK? A MONTH? You’re going to look odd, just because you are doing something very logical, but something that 99% of the people don’t do. Be mindful of this and don’t get trapped in the sheep mentality.
    Also, no matter what the external pressure might suggest about you, your RESULTS will speak louder than the words of any criticism. Basically the fact that overweight, substance-dependent, undisciplined, lousy people are gossiping and criticizing is a big joke, because when it comes down to it, the life you live is a reflection of what you do if you like the results you see, guess who is the sucker?
    So yeah, actions speak louder than words and words don’t mean shit after all. The way you live is your net value. Done.

  • Excellent job Scooby!!
    I decided years ago to never use again the words “can´t” or “impossible”. I changed them for “I´ll try”. It did wonders in my working life and the relation with my then boss.
    My other sentence is: “Don´t worry. I am in charge of it”

  • Hey, I think your great ive watched you vids.. well stumbled across them. Haha. Your wise, fit and seem emotionaly stable. Im sure you have alot of greatness in your life because you project it and help to motivate and encourage individuals which is a gift! Also got alot of guts to post videos of your opinions. Which is great. Your fucking awesome. Yo Eliot PLEASE add me on facebook Sivsn Røse. just keep being you always:)

  • I don’t weigh myself anymore because for me it’s not about the weight, it’s about a healthy lifestyle. The fat will come off naturally.

  • Lately I have been thinking what I would talk about when expressing my way of thinking via this sort of medium, but Elliot is exactly saying what I was trying to make clear to people and exactly hits the right snares. It’s near to impossible to be able to talk someone into doing anything in his life, unless that person believes it him/herself. Most of the times this belief is only established by experience, and starting out as a noob which does everything “wrongly right” as a learning process.

  • Hey man I have a question, when performing certain ab movements (L sit for example) I can’t really hold this, could this be because of tight muscles?

  • It should be a compliment.
    To think that you’re on pair with the roiding guys while being completely natty should prove that is is possible to achieve your own genetic potential without going to the extremes.

  • haha, why the hell are you trying to get big? you tryna get the hunnies? isnt that against your religion? just stick to 5 times a day and sleep

  • I think of what I’ll regret when I die. That motivates my ass to get just about anything done. Ever since then I have a much more fulfilling life.

  • Thankyou for the upload. Youtube is wonderful for this type of thing.My best friend was previously bullied. He said he was intending to get bigger. I did not believe him. Right up until in only weeks he packed on 40 pounds of 100 % pure muscle. He made use of the Muscle Building Bible look for it in Google. He does not get bullied these days.

    I subscribed earlier this week. Not to mention this mans emails are fucking cool…

  • mate, im a muslim and there isnt much on it, u have to go easy on the workouts, the best one to go with is dawn workouts just after sehri, but the thirst becomes a problem for me. im starting a serious cutting plan, and im planning to not fast this time, not completely sure though, cos ive always fasted, and also food wise it gets suuuper hard, i usually gain a hell of a bad weight during ramadan cos i eat very badly:/

  • Add variations with the pull ups and chip ups. Try planks for your core, L sit ( advanced is V sit and it goes more after that). You can add variations to this, just search it up can’t be bothered explaining, it’ll take a page or two. And you do need these if you’re in a do any type of martial arts or sport. Lastly, legs obviously are important because it’s half your body and also looks good. Hope that helps man.

  • Okay so here those of my fitness goals i would like to achieve by Christmas.
    Lower my bodyfat % to around 8. Increase the width of my lats because thats the only muscle i feel i need to work more on. Fix my posture and flexibility. Increase my stamina for boxing. Also i would like to increase the max amout of weight i can do on any exercise (mainly powerlifting) by 25%.

  • My goal with fitness is to use it as the cleaning crew to fix my life.

    My goals are to

    increase my energy.
    Increase my muscle mass.
    Learn movements to the point where I can teach and explain.
    Learn boxing or Muay Thai

  • hey scooby i have a question for you:Should i buy chrome dumbbells(wich supposed to last more but much expensive) or rubber dumbbells(wich are cheaper but i read that they don’t last that long).i don’t know,i don’t have any experience please help me..ooh and they each weight 22 lbs,is that ok or should i buy heavier?

  • you are correct. i really got shocked when i receive my ipad3 without paying a dime @ my home yesterday. Listen, dont forget to give ur email id and delivery address to receive via courier. you can also get it from here >>>

  • My goal is too get in shape to get back into modeling when I go to Japan in 2014. And to get my black belt in Jujitsu by the time I turn 22:)

  • Should muscles hurt the next day. And is how much your aware of a muscle when you flex any guide on how effective your workout was. I only felt sore after my first workout and it does not seem to happen anymore even with more weight and reps.

  • Many thanks for the film. Youtube is perfect for this form of info.

    My cousin was formerly bullied. He stated he was planning to get bigger. I didn’t believe him. Until unexpectedly he added 40lbs of natural lean muscle mass. He made use of the Muscle Building Bible look for it in Google. He does not get bullied nowadays.:) I actually signed up last week. See what will happen. Not to mention this guys emails are fucking awesome!!!

  • All your civilization is based on electricity. A million a one thing could happen to electricity and then you are back to the stone age in no time. Electricity or lack of, civilization or lack of, Islam will stand the test of time, whether you like it or not.

  • I think you should try to work out just after you have had your last meal, and preferably at the time you can have another meal right after. Elliot may have another answer, but I only try to help you! good luck man:)

  • I know what he is saying, i do have fitness goals. Just hate that ‘SMART’ crap they pushed at me at school. I know it useable in the real world but in education its harder to make goals. You really just aim for a grade. In fitness for example there are lots of variables. Also with the time specific in school thats set for you.

  • I set a process goal everyday of not eating added sugars and especially processed foods. I am good at staying away from “junk food” b/c it’s completely worthless lol but lately I have been actually addicted to sugar. It’s a struggle. I never get cravings as long as it’s not in my diet, but if I eat sweets several days in a row it becomes quite a profound habit. Any chance you can do a video on kicking sugar? It’s so easy to not eat sugar if you never eat it…just getting to that point is so grueling.

  • @bobb builder yes when you feel sore after a workout it’s like a sign that you exercised now don’t over exert yourself but find that point where you can do so much in a workout and you will be sore but not hurt or injured your body will recover from the soreness and that’s how you get to lift more because your body will get used to it

  • Ramadan is a holy month in Inslam in which the holy Quraan descended in on prophet Muhammad PeaceBUH in the most holy night in the year (Laylat alQadr) and that’s why it’s really preferred to read Quraan during this month. We fast in this month not only from food and water, but also from all sins and bad actions. And this act teaches us how to control our desires and makes us feel of the poor people and their suffering. Besides all the health benefits that I’m not gonna get in.

  • Excuse my ignorance, Muslim people, but what is Ramadan?
    I grew up in a Catholic household so I don’t really know of Muslim practices or holy days.

  • I work 2 jobs, eat clean, and go to school.. and I still have time to workout, its all about how committed you are to your goal and schedule planning.

  • Thank you for all your videos, keep them coming! What books do you recommend and/or what books have you read that have taught you the most?

  • Make a teeny tiny habit. When you get home, don’t completely stop eating all of the junk food. Eat an apple too, then tell yourself you’re fucking awesome for eating that apple. Eventually, it’ll become a habit because you’re rewarding yourself for eating that apple. When you conquer that, slowly replace the bad foods with good foods and you will win!!!

  • i guess you dont know any of his ebooks or his workout plans. first of all, my comment was for me and how it effects me. second, he never gives you a actual workout plan or meal that you should do step by step. he actually goes so deep to a point where its kind of confusing. he has so many products man, what are you talking about.

  • I’m a big fan of your channel but all I can do is watch because I have a slipped disc. Though according to the result of my MRI, it’s not acute but for some reason, it’s painful. I wanted to be able to play sports again. Any recommendation?

  • Ramadan last year, I used to exercise about an hour or so before sunset. Trust me, if you think you are tried thirsty and hungry, it is only in your head. This coming Ramadan, I intend to build on this and achieve ‘Lean Gain’; shedding fat while maintain muscle size. The exercises last year were only weights, this time I will do cardio as well as weights.

    Another thing, follow the prophet’s advice (Ramadan or not): eat only when you are hungry, and when you eat, don’t fill up.

    Happy Ramadan

  • You should have directed him to read the power of habits, you’ve mentioned it in other videos and I read it because of your mentioning, and it will help with creating or changing habits that you have or aspire to have

  • Amen. The world is getting more and more evil in these times, but it’s important to keep strong with the lord. You can be a boss like Elliot and still humble yourself under the lord.

  • Hey scooby you seem to be more ripped than few months ago.great job keep it up and thanks for every effort you put into giving us motivation.i know you are enjoying this.

  • Stretch marks is a reaction of your skin whenever it expands too fast. You need to grow slower. Once you have the stretch marks there is hardly anything you could do against it. Some people say creams and sunlight helps..I doubt it.

  • Hi Scooby. Thanks for this video. I’m 32 and I pretty much wasted 15 years of my life to online gaming. I Now in November it’s been 1 year since I stopped playing games. 1,5 month ago I decided that I have to get into shape and I started to do crossfit. I enjoy the competitive side of it. In order to get better results and not being last all the time I stopped smoking. I love this positive chain of events but to keep it going I need to set my goals right. I don’t have them at the moment but you inspired me to set them in a measurable way. Thank you.

  • sure is right. we must kill the bad fat and belly first to get the 6 pack. And My senior in gym daily having this secret food items to kill his belly with less excercise. you can watch out here:

  • i found interesting also the books by Anthony Robbins especially “Unlimited Power:The New Science of Personal Achievement” do you read it scooby? if it’s not give it a try 😉

  • Impressive how fast you have improved your English +Mario Tomic. I enjoy watching your videos! How did you improve your English so fast? Taking into account you live in Croatia! It is impressive… Best Regards.

  • It would be a shame for you not to get ripped when these normal people accomplish it easily with Max Muscle Extend (check it out on Google).

  • I would look at it as Intermittent fasting and the HodgeTwins talk a lot on that and that is what they do. So I would say go to their channel to maybe find something. Best of luck

  • if elliott or anybody here could help me i’d be very thankful,
    recently when i raise my arm to the side and bring it back down my shoulder crack,
    also when i swing my arm backwards in a controlled manner it also cracks,
    i don’t feel any pain and i can move freely though i feel like that there’s a burning or slight pain in the joint it’s something very uncomfortable and is making the joint weak this is only in my right shoulder,
    i took a rest and this had gone but every time i workout it returns

  • Hey scooby! I’m a medicin student, and from looking at your posture in this video, I think you might have a back problem called scoliosis, which means your spine does not form a straight line in a frontal view but it’s a bit flexed.. But if you’re supporting most of your weight with your left leg in this vid, forget what i said =p

  • Goals for me have been

    Drop below 13st by the end of 2012
    Get 16 inch arms by the end of 2013

    Both seem reasonable, arms are 13.5inch atm, and weight is 186lb. Right now I’ve switched my routine because I’m close to goal one, and I’m now doing a workout based on stronglifts. Should help me lose the last few lbs and get towards the size gain in my arms.

    Role is to build a better body, aiming for greek ideal. Dropping weight seemed like a good first step.

  • I want to have a 2.5x bodyweight deadlift, 2x bodyweight squat, 1.5x bodyweight bench press, and 1x bodyweight overhead press. Right now I am right under 170 but have set my goals to 185 lbs because I expect a weight gain and want and expect to achieve all this by 1.5 years. I actually expect to meet all within a year except maybe deadlift. By my calculations I am probably at least 70% there on every lift but the last 30% is where I will probably start stalling and reset. I am running 5/3/1.

  • Doing cold showers and morning walks everyday, Im on day 12.
    Feel like once I can make it a habit, I dont have to think about it anymore and just do it. Then go up for harder challenges / useful habits to reach my goals.
