The Bad & The Ugly. There are few disadvantages to strength training. Just like with bodybuilding, there is a risk of injury. You may experience a pulled muscle from time to time, or a joint or ligament will get inflamed.

CARDIO AND STRENGTH TRAINING – The good, the bad, and the not-so-ugly Two years ago I decided it was time for a new challenge, so I picked up a running habit.

  • I received c6c7 cervical surgery fusion with 1disc replacement onJanuary 31st I’m looking for exercises that I can do at home. Can you recommend some for me?

  • Thanks Matt for some more great  infor for me.  Luckily, I don’t have back pain even though I had two compression fractures 15 years ago.  However, I have been working on Josh’s Anterior Pelvic Tilt Program online and I noticed that my quads are really tight.  They make my knee caps hurt when I try to squat or raise my hips from the floor.  I have been trying to stretch them but it does not seem to be working.  Thoughts??

  • Oh this is fantastic! Thank you! Now I just need to actually do these every day.
    Question: When I’m relaxing reading a book or on a laptop, are there any postures other than sitting up perfectly straight that would not hurt my neck? I’m realizing being on my stomach and elbows reading a book probably is making my neck hurt more.

  • wow…I’m blown away that I can watch a video of yours…1, 2, 4 years old…whatever…and still take away valuable priceless information that directly and immediately improves my performance.

    We’re really fucking lucky to have you Jeff. Thank you so much mate.

  • Hi Mat, Plank exercise? you say it will not necessarily work, so what will. you are not really answering the question for lower back pain

  • If I exercise all I use now is resistance exercise (plus all the manual work I do on the property)
    I have an old  paperback Charles Atlas. He used what he later called Dynamic-Tension, that pitted one muscle group against another.. Do a search to see

  • This video has to be one of the most important ones I have ever seen on training I did not really appreciate the “base” thanks!

  • Ego will blind most to the roots. Which is why you rarely see 30year old + guys doing all compound lifts. Listen to Jeff youngins, 99% of you will be on the machines soon bc DLs or squats jacked up your back. Nobody cares about ur numbers

  • I have been diagnosed by my chiropractor as having my head too far forward of my shoulders by about 30 degrees. I always look down and have trouble keeping eye contact with people before my head drops down and when it does i get a pain in the back of my neck. Will these exercises help

  • excellent theory even i thought it was strength as to the main routes but hate as opened my eyes and when you actually look at it closely it makes a lot of sense and is the focal point to gaining better strength standards.

  • He is so correct, i changed to a strength gain program, and especially with squats i noticed how my legs were able to handle the heavy loads, but i was very nervous and i felt as if the weight was forcing me to go down instead of me controlling the weight. I reduced the load and increased my reps from 3 sets of 4-6 to 3 sets of 8, i felt a bit of a setback because i “went back” 2 weeks of weights, but i believed it would pay off. Today, 3 weeks later i am back to my weights that made me nervous, and i am in full control, no twitching, shaking or leaning forward. I slowly incorporated this to all my lifts, especially squats and barbell rows (less weight, much slower concentric, squeeze as hard as i could at the top for 2-3 seconds, and control it slowly on the eccentric) and it does pay off. From all of Jeff’s videos, i could not find anything i have not tried that failed on me (but to be honest, i focused on stability over strength a few weeks ago, before i saw this video today).

  • Thank you for the video and exercises you provided. I just wonder if it is normal, that doing these exercises feels very intense? Should I continue doing them? Thanks.

  • I don’t have a gym membership or the equipment to do the face pulls you described at the end. Is there an alternative that can be done at home with a similar effect?

  • @ tone and tighten
    Hello Jared Ever since I started doing push ups, I have mild neck pain And this pain is started to getting towards shoulder muscles and sometimes this pain intensify
    Should I stop doing push-ups or should i follow above mentioned exercise in video to continue my push ups even if it hurts

  • Lol now I know that external rotation makes my glute contraction stronger. If I want to focus more on my glutes I will point my toes out more now while keeping them closer and press more on heels

  • i tried Squating with Dimitri Klokov technique and it is awesome, Mark Rippetoe also recommend the same way of squating and it utilizes all the Muscles of your legs. Now i wonder why i had back pain. You dont have to stay straight in squat, it just put pressure on your fucking knee and not doing any thing. In proper squat your nipples must be facing at 45 degree angle to the floor, not the wall. Although your chest must be out.

  • Mobility flexibility and stability are pretty much the most important things I would also add stamina or endurance to that but i am not a professional in any way so that’s just my opinion

  • Like the focus on sorting posture before the gym. See lots of goons pushing weights and making muscle tightness and posture even worse much more quickly. Talks sense as usual. Respect Jessie. Harsh response from that woman!

  • Hi Jeff. Thanks for another great video! Are you able to do a video entirely on muscle stabilization, I.e., what is it? I assume it’s the core and the smaller stabilizer muscles but id love
    more info if you can. Thanks!

  • Hey, I’ve watched this video about 100 times now just to keep it stuck in my head and I’ve seen a lot of improvement with my posture due to the workouts and stretches. I keep having one issue though, and it’s when I’m trying to stand up straight; my lower ribs always seem to want flare out and my lower spine curves in as well. I’m assuming it’s compensation for me trying to correct my upper spine. I tighten my abs and do my best to get my lower ribs back in while straightening spine and tucking my chin, but I’m not really sure if that’s what I should be doing. Is it ok to let my lower ribs flare out like they’re trying to do?

  • I have a question,if you have dowagers hump since you are baby,Would you recommend surgery or something else? I am really overwhelmed from not being able to get rid of it.

  • I’d say this posture can be corrected from bottom up by just “keeping your head held high!”. Stand against a wall with your back and head touching the wall, and that explains the exact posture to be maintained without the wall also.

  • I tried and i feel great. It is not hard. But effect is strong. I will continue and i hope that my problem will be solved. Thank you both very much! ❤

  • I hate when Jeff starts addressing something. Then I think, oh well just do this. Then Jeff says, no that’s not the answer either.

  • This is a beast of a workout!!!! Looked simple but if you have this problem (like myself) this gets right at those weak muscles in the neck and back. Thank you!!!

  • Lots of people struggle with some form of brain damage… I’d say 90% live with some form of mental impediment that impairs intelligence.

  • How many days per week do you recommend doing th neck strengthening exercises? Do we need a day or 2 off in between do allow the muscles to recover?

  • i have poor posture and the pain from the neck is going into my left forearm, BLOODY painful, has that similar pain to tennis elbow, but sharper, its affecting my sleep big time…the body is made to difficult if you ask me, its like a old car, fix 1 problem than you get another

  • Man.. U are awesome… I have to share with you a unique case that i have… You will be totally surprised and it will does some changes for you to.. Please send me a contact so i can share some videos… Good one bro.. ����

  • Jesse, cte from cuncussions may be avoidable. Perhaps you two can come up some exercises and nutrition to prevent it. I did not start to recognize any symptoms until my 40s. Had I known they were coming maybe I could have done more to detain them. Coconut oil and cbd oil seem to help now, but I bet you guys can find much more to combat concussion based cte. ����

  • Does this mean that the limit to how deep we can squat is only determined by how far enough we can keep our form, in other words, when the knees start caving in for moments at a time, then that means we can only squat that deep and not any deeper?

  • Hello sir,
    My body fat is arround 10%.I want to know that should i need to go bulk first then go to loose/ cutting.

    Is it correct?

  • This explains so much of the pain in my upper back, shoulders, neck and chest. I will post a before and after, thank you so much!!!

  • Uhhh…..okay, I have reasonable mobility and flexibility. I am not 90 years old. Strength is the foundation. By this video, you may as well as say that being alive or having two arms and two legs in your foundation. I fail to get the point.

  • Kindly slow down a bit. You talk so fast it’s difficult to keep up with what you are saying. It looks great and I admire your knowledge and skills but give us a chance to absorb it.

  • Hi sir do you squeeze and muscles or tense neck when doing this you didn’t say whever to relax or not also do you push your neck up? Please reply

  • I think it’s hilarious how you always tag-on “ugly” to FHP it just cracks me up (plus it’s so true lol)! Which puts me in a good mood and helps me do this GREAT & SIMPLE exercise! Many thanks!
    Of note, when I do this right, there’s a nice, snug feeling in the throat area. Also, when I attend to my feet, I feel them bear more evenly into the ground. Another thing this blends in well with is the sensation that the chest has is open, empty even (receptive)… Thanks again!

  • how I fixed my slumped posture is by putting a thick book under my shoulder blades for 5 minutes every day for 3 weeks. thanks for your explanation also that will help also.thanks

  • Lol I love this guy. Great video! Thank you! Boyfriend sent this to me, to help with my complicated back and hip pains, will be checking out more videos! Thanks!

  • I found this video right implementing more hypertrophy and strength work to. build muscle. I’ve been struggling with plateaus and joint pain recently. I plan on working more on mobility and stability along with my workouts. Thank you!

  • Hi. Love your shows. I have been suffering from a serious Sleep-Apne that have made me sleep basically for 5 years in a row, so all my muscles are totally gone. How should I make a strategy to start-up my training again. Whatever I do seems to hurt my other muscels and so on, if I train my front legs I get hurts on my backside because my muscels are so weak there. The physiotherapists seams to have no clue to approach it. Please help me on this. Janne

  • One problem i was having was moving my shoulders back. I thought doing that was helping posture but but its focusing on the chest, the shoulders will follow

  • Well now I feel like I just had a heart-to-heart with Jeff. Probably due to the fact he said “the root system underneath is what matters.” And now I’m crying.

  • I love you guys! And, you’ve helped me alleviate knee pain. Not all of it yet, but I’ve only just started, and already feel better. Yay!

  • Anybody know why he always shows high bar squats instead of low bar or a mix? It would be cool if he gave tips on low bar unless he already has and I haven’t been able to find it yet

  • Hi bob and brad I like to watch u both great advice but I have trouble with my thigh muscle really hurts wen it to step up a high step can u give me an exercise to help thanks mandy

  • I suffered with this neck pain in the beck left of my neck that came and went for 2 months.
    Just this video alone with one try got rid of 70% of the pain and most of the stiffness. I cant thank you enough!

  • Bob and Brad love your videos you guys need to check out ring fit Adventure on the Nintendo switch I suspect you’ll be impressed and entertained and get a ton of views if you gave it a shot I’m a tattoo artist I hunch all the day so you guys are Lifesavers

  • I can not thank you enough. I am 4,5 months post op (micro discectomy) but of the physiotherapists I got therapies so far, none had showed me the exercises you demonstrated on this video. All I have been doing neck stretches, sometimes 5 x a day, but they were not as effective as your exercises were. Feels like I found an oasis for the plight in my neck. So huge thank you.

  • Hey Bob and Brad! Love your videos! I run a small nonprofit for disability advocacy, and I know there’s a lot of my audience who would love to know about gentle, adaptive workouts they can do from their beds and with their mobility devices, such as manual wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs, forearm crutches, and canes. Also, there are things like hypermobility, migraines, circulation issues, sensory processing disorders, braces, IV nutrition, and a host of other things I’m missing, to consider when creating a program or regimen.

    What I’m getting at is a variety of activities that are low impact that are body-group specific as well so that if someone can’t do a certain thing for whatever reason, there’s something else for them, since it’s impossible to account for every need.

    If you’d be willing to, it would help a lot of people, and if you need any help, you’re welcome to contact me. On Instagram, I’m frillability.

  • I use resistance bands sometimes and can’t get continuous tension on some exercises so I’m better off with free weights. But I do like the rb while lying down for arms. I’m 56 and have been working out for 41 yrs. I watch your videos regularly for help with my hip pain.(constantly). I don’t like taking drugs. My orthopedic doc says I need hip replacement but can’t afford so I have to live with it. I am an automobile parts Delivery driver so I sit and drive all day. I’ve been doing it for 4 yrs and shortly after is when my hip pain started. Any helpful advice would be much appreciated.
    P.S. I do the stretches for hip about 3 days a week.

  • So this is suppose to help with nerd neck, hunchback, and anterior pelvic tilt? Sounds to good to be true since it’s all in one package but I’ll give it a try for 3 weeks.

  • Excellent info! Thanks so much. I’ve shared your link with my stroke client and a few others. I’m a medical massage therapist and love your stuff. Your philosophy is so right on. Not every physio exercise is right for everybody and may contribute to their existing problem.:)

  • I have been having headaches for the past two weeks, and I think it’s coming from my neck since I am always working on a computer. So, I will try these. Thank you for shring this with people.

  • Great information! I’ve noticed my dumbbell bench press dwindled at some point, because I pressed (or lifted on other exercises) without a focused mind throughout each rep. However, I didn’t realize it until the hurt directed my awareness…and it did! Then I had to figure out where I screwed up. Point is, the muscle itself didn’t suddenly get smaller, less capable, but the sole issue was a lack of stability at certain point(s) during the press. Very aggravating to know I have the strength but can’t utilize it! However, once I corrected the lift / press with proper form, less weight gulp AND regular corrective exercises (thank you Jeff!) my stability is returning, but man it’s a slow process; more so since I’m 64 years old! Still, you’ve saved me a world of hurt! 64? That still seems weird to say.

  • Thank you doctor… you explain so well and so clearly. I wasdiagnosed with neck spur and one year later (having pain almost 24/7) went to another doctor who said the spur was so, so tiny and what really caused the pain was my straight neck. Possibly because I slept for many, many years without a pillow. I lice in Japan where they didnt have pillows that fit my long neck. Any advise? March 1, 2020

  • On the wall angel what if you cannot get your knuckles to the wall, infact you can’t get your arms flat against wall… In time, doing these exercises you think eventually one would be able to???????????

  • Thank you for the sharing information regarding these great exercises, loved it when I did those and I will continue, greatly appreciated!

  • Your really out on a limb on this one. Your exhausting the athlean x thing to the max. Although you are the ftness Messiah you may want to redo some older videos instead of doing stuff like this. Also you should use maybe an assortment of body types for your examples. Not everyone is 185lbs. I have faith in you! And thank you again for your great insight!

  • I´ve seen a lot of videos on YouTube but this guy is by far the best!
    He explains and demonstrates really well, exercises are very clear.
    These exercises are the best thing that have happened to me… ever!

  • I’ve looked at quite a few of your PT videos and just wanted to say thank you. They are sensible, explained and demonstrated well and most importantly working to help alleviate my pain and improve my posture. Much appreciated!!

  • That karen thought jessie hurt her baby boy and went all momma bear on him. I feel your pain, a karen attacked me when I was in 8th grade at a h.s. football game.

  • Thank you so much for your amazing video, the exercises are very helpful. I have a question though:I used to play guitar but after couple of years, I’m no longer able to play because the moment I hold the guitar and start playing I experience very bad spasm and discomfort in group of muscles starting from my arm up to to my neck and around hyoid bone mainly on my left side,the side I hold the neck. The spasm is so strong that it pressures my wind pipe and I feel something sharp is pressing the back of my throat. Some people say it is because of weak muscles. Are there any other reasons and also exercises you can suggest?! I really like to continue playing guitar, but I can’t. Thanks!

  • Thank you. I noticed weakness in my neck, especially when tried some things on trampoline, like my friend wanted to teach me basics of backflip and first thing is to learn how to fall on back and get up, and when I jumped on back in trampoline, my head starts shaking up and down, very bad feeling amd thats why I stopped, so gonna train that neck to be able hold it still in shaky times:D

  • Jeff, what’s the advantage of doing this on a bench rather than on a firm roller, positioning the roller at the same spot and letting the hips drop a bit?

  • I’ve got to possibly disagree with you guys on lock up, but I could be wrong. If one doesn’t work the full range of a body part, is not the muscle less developed in the range that prevents joint injury?

    I understand that aggressive intense full range exercise brings upon joint injury, but one simply slows the motion at the end and beginning of range.

  • Thanks… as for wing angel my knuckles hit and stay on wall, do I keep elbows flat onto wall also or do they pop out a tiny bit? And do back straps worn around home help with the posture issue? ��

  • Mark Ripptoe will say differently… This is why this topic is so confusing even to experts. Most strength competitors don’t practice mobility training, Again what’s right and wrong?

  • Ive had lower back pain for 5 months from running too much and nothing else (5k every other day)..

    It’s improving but slowly but still painful and not enough strength to begin running.. I’m just walking and doing light standing stretches, I’ve attempted a plank today, managed to do 30 seconds but it was a struggle to manoeuvre into the position… do you recommend to continue and build up core???? My lower back feels weak and need to build strength, any advice be appreciated thanks

  • dude u r too flexible bending n touching your toes, at ease u r doing. i messed up my back and i am very careful. but i do planks regularly can hold upto 2.5 mins can stretch to 3 mins too. u r fully toned, and extremely helpful video. thanks.

  • I’m in my bed a lot so my neck is really “weak”.
    I’ve been doing this exercise since yesterday (so i did it twice) and my neck & the back of my head is hurting sometimes (while im doing the exercise it doesn’t hurt). Is it normal? Should i continue or should i rest? Or should i see to my doctor? Please answer. Thank u for making this video:)
