  • Ironing boards cannot support a larger person, nor are they wide enough. Further more, they are not at the right height. I really would appreciate some links to the varieties of PT tables shown I. These videos, OR some info of how to rig up one of my own at home. Brad, that shirt makes you look like you have a big gut! It fits like the shirts my 82 year old dad wears!

  • non-native EMFs (fields and frequencies) stimulate the AMPk pathways, increase glucose 24/7 when living in them, and push people to overeat and develop T2D. Yes in some emotional eating will be a problem, but the emotions themselves tie to the nnEMF exposures in specific environments (especially many micro-environments).

  • I am in a real pickle. My whole lumbar is fused 360°. I cannot sit, stand nor lie down for any length of time without extreme pain. I have to try to be in constant motion. I’ve been following your videos for quite some time. And they’ve been very helpful. I will just wish I can find a position that I can be comfortable in

  • Hey guys, really love your content! What are your opinions on chiropractors and when/if a person should see one? I have constant back/neck discomfort that feels structural but not sure what the best approach would be to minimize aggravating something further.

  • This is so discouraging. I am 65 and FINALLY have the time to do the thing I have most wanted to do my entire life—hand embroidery. It requires many hours of sitting. I’m not about to give it up. I guess I’m doomed. ��

  • I am always stressed out at school, as I need to perform in front of the board which i have stage frights, this was really helpful!

  • You guys are great…keep up the good work!  I purchased a sit/stand desk.  One of the best investments I’ve ever made. I’ve converted my office to a gym/yoga/physical therapy studio.

  • Where can I get this stand table? Does It hold an iMac largest screen? Would love it in my study. Since this covid virus came I’m sitting more and find comfort at home in my lounge room or bed and now it’s winter so due to back pain I’ll be walking twice a day now no days off. I’m going to write what I do every day to count my activity and sitting time.

  • Also don’t forget the so called Broccoli test. If you think you’re hungry, would you feel like eating a healthy vegetable like broccoli (or if you don’t like broccoli, any other vegetable)? If it’s true hunger, it will do. If it’s emotional hunger, you’ll crave something sugary instead. Hope this video helps! <3

  • very sensible stuff. as a South Indian who moved to the West, I find western foods far too calorie dense when compared to a traditional South Indian meal. western food technologist are greasing the wheels for the demise of the Western races. for example, until the modern era breakfast cereals did not exist. when I compare it to a simple dosa in the morning, the calories in the dosa is far less since there is no externally added sugar. will Western societies decline due to advances in food technology? my guess is yes, if people continue not cooking from scratch

  • In my international travel to very poor areas, one thing I have noticed is the absence of seating. Everyone squats to eat or to “rest”.

  • Excellent (and scary) video! I work with a lot of very obese people who also suffer with mental illness. Your videos are a source of inspiration, and group topics! Hope you can address one exercise video someday to those who are extremely obese, not engaged in any exercise, and sit at least 13 hours per day. Motivating them is difficult, but necessary! Perhaps chair exercises is what I am asking for?

  • I never seat except in my car. I lay on the rug on my back for a short rest during the day, my husband can seat 7 HRs a day and funny enough he hasn’t got sore lower back like I do

  • There is a difference between correlation and causation. Sick people sit more, sitting didn’t make them sick. Any study of people admitted to hospitals would find they spent more time in bed. Bed time didnt cause cancer, broken bones, gunshot wounds. Might have caused childbirth.:-)

  • Hey Doc’s can you do a vid on strengthening the ankles. I had an operation at 5 to relax my rt foot because I walked on my tip-toe. Also I have flat feet.

  • Your channel is very helpful to me and I appreciate what you are doing. Could you slow down and spend more time on one thing you’re talking about? You’re running over with so much helpful information you want to share that it becomes an overload. I can’t process all of it. Less is more. Maximize the minimum please. Thank you!

  • can you guys please do a video on intercostal neuralgia! i get attacks at random times because of nerve damage due to shingles. I have yet to find a way to stop the pain!! It’s some of the worst pain I have ever felt

  • I’m looking at getting either the Thera Cane you guys recommend but I like the looks of the blue one you use, what is that one called? Is one better than the other, or for different problems? Thanks.

  • Your videos are really helpful. Plus you two crack me up. I love your ‘most famous claim” and your need for ‘likes’ on Facebook…so funny.

  • Hi there! Thank you for the video. I have heard about health benefits of sitting on the floor instead of a chair. To study at home I sit on the floor with a lap table in front of me. Any thoughts on how this type of sitting can influence health in comparison to standing?

  • Hello, Matt!

    I have a couple questions to you:

    1. Is it better to do cycled routines or “sets time reps”-routines when considering I want to efficiently grow my muscle size and strength? (I’m not sure which one I should use when doing push ups because most of the routines I find online have been made to copy the cycled style instead of the “sets x reps”-style. However, some guys repeatedly say the exercises have to executed in a way that mimicks the style most of the bodybuilders use (reps x sets) because “there won’t be nearly enough growth in the muscles when using the cycled style”)

    2. I find it extremely hard to use my left arm’s bicep and other important muscles when doing chin ups and pull ups (meaning I contract the hand the wrong way and don’t get the similar power and muscle growth out of it). Any tips?

    Thanks in advance:) Your channel is top quality!

  • That’s the sitting sorted.
    What about sleeping?
    Japanese, Indians, Iranians and other Asian people sleep on the floor and many Westerners on the Internet say we’d better ditch our mattresses and beds and go the Asian way.
    What are your thoughts about that, Gentlemen?

    P.S.: You do need to get a better microphone and improve the audio quality of your videos. This is long overdue.

  • I had these questions just thought I would throw them up here.:)

    1) Thoughts about working out on a bit of an empty stomach? Because of work I often start my workouts when I am hungry (not starving but I could eat)… is there anything is suggest this is a bad idea? Has been working for me till now..

    2) Do you really need to eat within 45 minutes to 1 hour post workout?

    3) I train body weight only but I do alot of cardio (up to 12 mile runs, swimming, biking, sometimes all three in a day). I often do my strength work first, and then go do my runs or whatever right after (within 5 minutes I finish the strength training I start my cardio). Is this a bad idea at all? Any research that shows this is detrimental to building muscle? Should I flip it around? Should I totally separate them and do one in the morning and one in the afternoon?

  • I am glad I found this channel, I have been consistently 50 pounds over weight growing up, meaning whatever the healthy weight for someone my height and age, I was 50 pounds over it. As you would imagine, I have had a great deal of stress conserning my diet, and how much exercise I got because what I ate and my schedule were controlled very much by my parents. I recently subscribed and watched most of the videos, my diet related stress has gone down, I have started walking for 30 minutes everyday and am working on incorporating a fullbody bodyweight routine into my schedule as well. I think I have time currently, but I am working, about twice a week, on building up the strength to do the upperbody movements like push up and pull ups. Thank you so much I probably would have started doing any of this if not for this channel’s great information explaining that starting small is the best way to see progress. Especially explaining that you do not need to have a couple hundred dollars to invest in fitness related stuff, you just need to relax and spend some time progressing your self.

  • The out of sight, out of mind is probably the best change I made to my ‘diet.’ I reduced the convenience of nuts by moving them from the counter to a cupboard and actually saw visible weight loss. I was grabbing a handful every time I came to the kitchen for a glass of water just because it was there.

  • Great info that you pointed out here. This follows the sensible Weight Watchers point system that was recently replaced. In essence, everything (including fruit) has calories/points and must be accounted for. If you eat a bunch of junk food, you can not eat as much wholesome food. But that deep fried twinke was worth it…
