  • How to avoid gaining weight during the holiday:
    Dont eat so much you fat fuck.

    When eating high calorie foods, its all about portion control. Dont be a glutton.

  • My favorite strategy is to eat as I normally would on holidays, that is to say, well above maintenance. But after the holidays are over, I’ll just go on a mini-cut for a week or two, to shed the fat gain accrued. It really isn’t so bad. Even if you eat an extra 10.500 calories over the holidays, that’s only 3 lbs of fat. 3 weeks of moderate cutting will balance that out.

  • Hello picture fit. I love this channel. I’m a bodybuilder in progress and I would like it if you could do a video on fat burners for me please. But thanks anyways for everything you do. Keep ate it.

  • Let’s be real for the holidays enjoy time with family. Go ahead let loose holiday weight gain is like the freshman 15 for the holidays. Enjoy this time of the year. Side note ladies want to get thick let go during the holidays enjoy food and time with family&friends just do you.

  • i’m very impressed… this is helpful, professional,and very interesting.
    so, I wana share this vedio for Korean I’m here now.
    I wanna download these vedio, and add subtitles, then upload to the YouTube.
    would i have to do with this?? there is any problem in copyright??

  • Simple, stay away of your pregnant wife or you’ll be ended eating all what she desire to to eat. aghhh����
    Unfortunately you cannot say no to her else she will be upset and this is bad for the baby ��

  • i usually dont do too much extra cardio (just 1-2 runs a week to keep my endurance in check while i try to ramp up my lifts) but during the holidays i let myself enjoy it while adding in either an extra run a week or a HIIT day.

  • Hey, i’m starting to workout but i’m not sure about what kind of trainings i should be doing. What is the difference between endurance training and strength training? Which build muscle? Tone muscle? Burn fats more? Help me please before i keep on doing the wrong exercise:(

  • Hey I think you should make a video on the age old question. Does lifting stun your growth? I think its an interesting topic and it would help out a lot of young athletes.

  • HEY, really great videos op, i love that you post the sources of what you talk about in the video, could you make a video on target muscle shaping eg: a guy comes up to me and asks me what exercise to do to get the inner chest cuts, some people believe there are different exercises specifically for shaping muscles.

  • PLEASE STOP WITH THE COUNTING CALROIE NONSENSE!
    As I commented on one of your older videos i watched:

    This is misleading. There are diffrent types of calories, fat, protein and carbohydrates. It is true that if you eat less calories you will lose some weight, but the body needs fuel and only eating 500 calories a day is not healthy. Furthermore, the body adapts to the calorie intake, so if you eat less calories, the body will burn less calories. One of the more healthy and sustainable weight loss methoods is per example reducing the carbohydrate inntake, like sugar and white bred.
    Whats more intresting is the fact that fats contain twice the amount of energy when compared to carbs and protein, so if you eat fat, the fat will help burn more fat.
    So if you reduce the inntake of carbs (carbs which you really dont need) and increase the amount of healty fats, youll lose weight and have a substansielle inntake of calories.
