  • Literally just got done watching his—why you should do cardio video. And how not wanting to lose gains is a BS excuse to not do cardio.
    Next go to this video and…. #1, don’t do cardio! Lol.
    Idk, I almost was becoming a fan, but now kind of sounds like how muscle magazines go back and fourth with contradicting ideas.

  • Does Custokebon Secrets (do a google search) help me lost lots of fat? I notice a lot of people keep on speaking about this popular lose weight method.

  • Thanks. Makes a lot of sense. I am like that anyway. Form with no form, no form with form…finding what’s kicking for me with the getting Jacked thing…afraid myself of synthetics.had a couple of friends nearly died and besides my system is pretty sensitive..

  • Anyone know what is Custokebon Secrets about? I hear a lot of people lost tons of weight with Custokebon Secrets (search on google).

  • use scientific method….
    1) See what happens (observation)
    2) Guess why that could be (Hypothesis)
    3) Try to disprove your guess, without hurting yourself (Experiment)
    4) If you can not disprove, may be your guess was right (conclusion)

    and back to step 1. (conclusion becomes the observation of the next cycle)

  • I got in a car accident 2 years ago there were 5 cars involved everybody lived but the cop said that I’ve never seen an accident like this where somebody didn’t die

  • So I have a genuine question. I’m 29. I’ve been intermittent fasting for almost three months now. I eat my first meal 5 hours after I wake up in the morning. I’m sticking to a rough calorie amount. Eating healthier, but I will eat fast food when I feel like it once in awhile. As long as I don’t go over my caloric amount. I’m down about 13 lbs. I’m weight lifting 3 days a week. I’m doing a yoga routine 2 days a week. I guess my question is this. Is intermittent fasting truly stunting my muscle growth? I just want the truth.

  • greg is a trip he funny and how about those that think its all in the bench they sit on flat bench for a hour every work out whats wrong with these people and shoulder problems suck i popped my right shoulder like 4 times.

  • What happend to your voice Greg? If its just for show, you dont have to do it cause the knowledge you have and give to us is priceless!

  • I see lots of people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google). But Im not sure if it is good. Have you ever tried using this popular weight loss secrets?

Im getting stronger but never have any pains or signals i trained the muscle. Am i doing some wrong or is it just different for people? Like i keep asking people do u feel ur muscle when u train it they mostly all say yes

  • Interesting fact people whom said 1 way to stop drowning stop drowning or how to stop drowning is by breathing or other similar things,did you know human float if they relax or stop panicking whoa never knew that

    Sarcasm sarcasm

  • I personally like bulking and getting bigger, whether it’s muscle or not. The fat makes me feel stronger and I love being a big monster eating a shit ton of food and training really really hard. It’s so much fun.

  • out of curiosity the meal before bed how long before bed are we talking and how does that effect digestabilty if your laying down and what type of meal would be ideal?

  • Thanks for this video, Muscle building is super hard on self esteem I find. you feel stronger, but don’t like the mirror looks. Then all those comments that don’t help of why are you getting fat if you are dieting?  etc.. It takes a certain mindset to continue, but you are definitely a great person to follow for encouragement.

  • it’s crazy hard for me to be muscular and cut, i can put muscle on super easy if i don’t mine keeping a small bit of extra weight, i’ll be skinny for 250 lbs with a 16 inch diff between waist and chest or i can be skinny with a lot less muscle, i ended up opting to have more bodyfat and more muscle than be 195 with no fat.

  • I saw 2 or 3 videos of yours…. you talk about every thing but unfortunately you neglect the most dangerous of them all which is hypoglycemia which could lead to death in only 5 minutes or less. Up till now i can not understand how a diabetic manage body building with the risk of having hypoglycemia and be prone to death?? I hope as a diabetic that my life ends as soon as possible to stop all this painful and useless life for ever

  • I like what you doing scotty, I’m 42 very fit and also complete natural testosterone, crazy how many juiced up boys are on tube telling people it’s only hard training and diet and these poor uneducated people eat it like cheese cake and believe it’s true LOL

  • Rapper in the next life��������…

    What I took to head and heart….train hard. Dont have weights at home… Down to doin push-ups till I drop����

  • I’m 5ft 10inch 135, I’m on a medication that I believe hinders me gaining, I want to gain 15 or 20 ibs. Can u give me some tips on eating on a budget n how u would track the intake of everything I need. Being this small sux lol

  • It’s still amaze me just how some people do not know about Custokebon Secrets although a lot of people using it. Thanks to my personal mate who told me about this. I’ve lost crazy amounts of weight.

  • Does Custokebon Secrets (google it) help me lost lots of weight? I notice a lot of people keep on talking about this popular lose weight method.

  • Out of all the videos I have watched, YOU ARE THE MOST SOLID & HONEST person! It is difficult building muscleas I am still struggling BUT like you said we all have different body types so I have to figure out mine. Thanxxxxxx

  • I’m stuck, I need guidance I lost 18kg and now I’m 77.1kg I look skinny fat and been trying to build muscle on and off,
    any advice?

  • gregory, not all of us are injecting every day, taking clen, T3, GH, etc. you are simply talking shit, no different from Piana but at least he was real.

  • I pretty much always use full range of motion but there is a bodybuilder named Jason gallant who does alot of partial reps and hes natural

  • I don’t think genetics have nothing to do with putting on muscle. Today’s food destroys our bodies in general and therefore our genes suffer the consequences. If people were educated on proper nutrition and exercised everyone would have muscular bodies. But it’s very unlikely because the medical industry thrives on people who have metabolic problems and unfortunately we are misinformed by that same industry.

  • But I can show you a picture of my boyfriend when he was younger he was very very big you can’t say that if someone is big there probably using drugs because he was not it actully depends on the size of your body as well he was a 9th grader lifting 450 lbs every highschool around us wanted him to play football for them so you can make anything happen depends on where you build your muscle and how!

  • It still surprises me, how a lot of people are not aware about Custokebon Secrets, although many people get good results because of it. Thanks to my buddy who told me about Custokebon Secrets, I’ve lost lots of weight by using it without starving myself.

  • Hi mike I believe I may have really poor genetics for muscle building, as I put 110% effort into my gym workouts and eat clean, to the point where I’m still enjoying myself though. Any tips on how to increase rate of progress?

  • The 3 body types is pure pseudo science nonsense. It was brought out by Dr sheldon in the 1940s and was thrown out by the scientific community. To say you’re or a certain body type implies that you are stuck to that type. I was skinny before but now I’m muscular, do did I change from an ecto to a meso? Genetics should be the proper description and limb length.

  • Guys. lost tons of weight does not need to be hard (I used to feel it did). I’m going to give you some tips now. Look for a popular fat loss system called Custokebon Secrets (just google search it). Thanks to it I’ve lost lots of weight. I probably should not even be speaking about it cause I do not really want a bunch of other guys out there running the same game but whatever. I’m just simply in a great mood today and so I’ll share the wealth haha.

  • What is the best way to lost a lot of weight? I read loads of good opinions on the net about how exactly Custokebon Secrets can help you lost a lot of weight. Has anyone tested out this popular lose weight methods?

  • Hey love the information, I’m 23 and was diagnosed 3 years ago when trying to join the military and kept getting rejected at meps. Pretty disheartening because that’s what I felt destine to do. Ive never been over 170lb, I really want to try and build some mass as I’ve found exercising helps regulate with out insulin usage. I can’t seem to build and mass over 170. Any idea what I could do!!?

  • if someone who has diabetes can answer.
    For the last couple of years (regardless of liquid intake) I wake up
    1) *1-3 time’s a night to pee. And yes I pee alot.., always dark…
    I try to drink as much as I Should,water. Sugarfree soda etc,above 2.5L aday both combined. and PWO… Always 0.5-0.8L in the gym.
    I tried limit the last time of intake to 6PM (not american, but yeah 4h before bed) Still pee 2-3 times a night…

    2) Feeling like im drunk
    Like seriously having a hard time focusing with my vision.
    Feels like it’s getting worse. Definely not helping with my driverslicense… But the energylevel as a whole, I mean soberly feeling drunk, after sleeping 10-12hours and still feeling like shit and having a hungoverfeeling unless I get coffee/pwo (or….. sugar…snickers gets me to normal like THAT..)
    3) Maybe I read too much online

  • 8:38 my worst enemy gets electrocuted

    Im watching this video

    So I have to whack him? Yay!

    I get to settle grudges with him while saving his life!

  • Yo I’m a type one diabetic and really lost on how to get cut and build muscle as T1D but these vids are helping you should upload more

  • heres one if you walk on frozen lake and ice starts breaking, extend your hands so you wouldn’t completely go underwater. If you get swimming spasm do a backstroke that way it will be easier to stay above water and it requires less energy to swim

  • I almost died when I was 5, I ran into a tree in a Barbie jeep. My cousins pushed me down the hill and I hit the tree. A branch went in my eye

  • I think the truth is, you’ve gotta do all of this, but as you get out of puberty and into your 20’s you probably need to be on a little something

  • Hey Mike. I’m bulking atm. I have pretty big daily body weight fluctuations. My diet is pretty clean and consistent. How do you go about tracking your progress of gaining.2kgs per week. Cheers

  • Years!…….. years……. one word to take away……. I’m only 9months in………. thanks Mike…… good to know this is a marathon and not a sprint ��x

  • Lmfaooo i love how when you said there’s just “those people that can eat like crap and build muscle” and the whole time it’s clips of @mattdoesfitness playing

  • What the hell. Uve clearly got some gifted muscle building genetics. U probably gained more muscle in one year than I have in the last 5 years training.

  • Hi Mike, would three days a week of football (2 training sessions, and a match) slow down my growth, I’m training 3-4 times a week in the gym with playing football on the side too

  • Ive been lifting weights for the first time for about 3 months now, following a pull, push, leg program, 6 days a week.
    Ive gained 4-5kg and almost doubled my deadlifts, squat and militarypress.

    40kg squat to 90kg
    60kg legpress to 100kg
    60kg deadlift to 95kg
    40kg bench to 55kg
    22.5kg militarypress to 37.5kg

    I was really weak and i still are compared to others but are my results good as a beginner?

  • Mike please help me! I am now 39 and almost ready to give up. I want a body similar to yours but a bit more lean because I’m only 5foot 9 inches so not to tall. How do I achieve this. For example Do I lift light where I find a weight that I can do 15 reps and 4 sets? Or heavy weight less reps like 6 to 8 reps 3 sets to get a body more like brad Pitt from fight club. Because before when I lifted heavy I got bigger but I didn’t like that look because I looked shorter

  • I give up with cutting Im much happier with a gut and eating what I want I feel way stronger and better abs are over rated in my opinion aha

  • I do not enjoy working out. I just see it as a chore that must be done, no excuses. After a while if I don’t exercise, it really drags me down. I enjoy the benefits from working out, not the actual act of doing it.

  • Not everything I wanted was here, but, I have the incredibly high metabolism that doctors hate, and I still found great information here. It’s easy to have hyperglycemia, especially building mass, but, it really comes down to knowing yourself. I went from 160 to 178 in two weeks from weight training, but, I should be farther from that normally. It takes a lot to work with others, especially in a heavy warehouse environment, without adapting. Don’t let any of this video be for vain.

  • Even though he’s yelling at us I can tell he’s a nice person. I don’t believe he’s like this 24/7. When you work for years trying to help people actually get in shape… And you see so many people in the same business get rich over a bunch of bs… Lying to their clients and the masses that would make me yell and call people idiots too smh ����‍♀️. Nowadays I don’t trust any damn body anymore lol. Which I shouldn’t be doing anyway.

  • I started weightlifting at 12 years old (as a means of defending myself against bullies). short fat kid at the end of term, and by the start of the next term, with the addition of my growth spurt, tall and one of the biggest built guys in the whole school.

  • A query Mike:
    Why we need to follow the cycle of Cutting Bulking Cutting Bulking?
    M asking this, because with Bulk, i face difficulties with waist line and trousers

  • Despite all the haters that get in these comments just talking about “steroid this” and “steroid that”, I still think this is one of the best, most well informed, and most well put together fitness channels on YouTube. Even if he was taking steroids, do you really think that physique is easy to obtain? Are you fucking nuts?! That’s countless hours of busting ass in the gym and a crazy strict diet. MikeI just want you to know, a lot of people appreciate the content you put out. It definitely helps a lot of us out and inspires us to get off our asses and hit the gym. I’m still new to this so my calorie counting and eating habits leave a lot to be desired, but your workout videos have truly helped me out in the beginning stages, so thank you for the effort ��!

  • 1:21 (1) Training too long is overkill.

    3:00 (2) Results take time.

    6:20 (3) Hardcore training with no meal plan = No results.

    8:06 (4) Eating small meals every 3 hours is not required to get lean.

    8:50 (5) Bro-Splits are not the best or only way to build muscle.

    10:49 (6) You don’t need hours of cardio to get abs or stay lean.

    11:57 (7) I wish I understood the importance of compound movements.

    13:32 (8) Not training with full range of motion is a waste of time.

    16:45 (9) Deload weeks are very important.

    18:11 (10) Bigger muscles do not automatically mean more strength.

    19:55 -(11) To build muscle or strength you need progressive overload & you have to switch up your workouts.

  • I have type 2 diabetes but i have pretty good muscle growth. Diabetic aesthetics really helped me alot. Go check out their videos.

  • I’ve watched many videos like this and this is the first one where almost everything is explained so well from almost all angles! I lost weight due to depression but am trying to gain weight to be healthy again. Love your content, thanks!:)

  • I think as long as you check your blood sugar level before the workout, have something before hand (but not if your level is high) and at your next meal do slightly less insulin to avoid a hypo as your body will be more sensitive to insulin after a workout.

  • Im working 2 hours in the morning than I workout midday than I’m working 6 hours in the evening i follow a 5 day split you think im gona gain muscle like that?

  • Did he just say I need to add 5-10 pounds to an exercise every week? �� if humans were able to just do that every single time we would all be body building gods

  • Okay just wanted to touch on Myth#6. What you’re referring to is called body recomposition. It takes some trial and error, but I’ve seen it done and I’ve done it myself. I found that maintaining a slight deficit while making sure protein is up is what works best.

  • Around 10:30 you say that someone could be getting stronger while losing body fat. Can you clarify how that is possible when gaining muscle and losing body fat simultaneously is not possible? Thanks!!

  • Your second point debunked the surplus myth you talked about in the very beginning. That graph clearly shows that you can build muscle while in a surplus.

  • I’m wondering if going by eye is fine enough, as in if you’ve lost core definition and are getting a bit fat, or are already in that situation you will already be building muscle, but won’t have to necessarily be eating more since you’re already in a surplus because you have no core definition/your fat? Or would you still have to eat more food, even though you’re not lean, since your current state is your maintenance level?

  • Hey am a diabetic. Aged 25. I would like to know wat should be my workout routine in a week. I like hardcore exercise but am unable to see any gain or improvements
    . P.s -am a doctor

  • I made the mistake of bulking with eating to much. Got bigger then lost all gains when I ate correctly. I did keep most of the strength by still training hard

  • I am 17 years old, skinny fat, and I’ve been going to the gym for a year and I’ve built some muscle but I’m disappointed because I felt like I could’ve built more muscle within the time frame, any tips on how to build muscle are appreciated:)

  • Bruh, started watching your vids a month ago. Your channel is growing fast! I like your humble advice and informative videos. PS, ignore the Fortnite pic ����‍♂️

  • Just found your Channel and I wanted to thank you! Did you ever do a DNA Fit test for the ratio or your muscle fibers (Strength type A and Endurance type B)? I did a test 3 years ago and I have 40% Strenght and 6% Endurance fibers and was told that’s why I have a hard time gaining muscles! Don’t mind the haters, they are just jealoux! Greetings from Denmark.

  • 5 things you need to build muscle…
    1-progressive overload
    2-water
    3-protein
    4-fuel(body fat)
    5adequate sleep

    Yes you can build muscle in a calorie deficit

  • Yes! Great info, i trip myself up compairing to others in social media. Love the way you break it down and debunk these myths. So glad i stumbled across your channel!

  • This is the best video on this topic on YouTube. So honest and informative. I can’t wait to watch all your videos and pick up tips to help with my muscle building journey ❤

  • Has anyone used the Custokebon Secrets to lost crazy amounts of weight? Just do a search engine search. On there you will discover a great tips about how you can lost tons of weight. Why not give it a chance? maybe it’s going to work for you too.

  • Use supplements if you want to get big. Most guys, i.e., guys doing special forces stuff, aren’t swoll. Work on your grip. Lose bodyweight. And remember, the guys most feared in prison, are the 5’10” guys.

  • yes this reminds me of the day i had an electric shock at the top of a 25 story building being blown of it and landing in a shark pool fighting of a shark and saved myself from drowning by blowing up my jeans (singed my hairs a bit) all in one day and oh yes i had the flue but i had taken a positive pregnancy test and was saved by going to a doctor. bloody hell of a day that was.

  • I see so many go into the gym and just waste time. Talking too much, phone play too much, resting too much……Who am i to judge…But i would like to find a training partner that is serious to push each other……. i feel if you make it to the gym BUST YOUR A*S*S because you can rest, talk, cell play and relax when you go home!

  • Hey Scott I stopped gym for like 2 years and I want to start back soon. What step by step supplements and practices should I get in order to put on size I’m a skinny guy.

  • Another rule of thumb is never go by what a scale tells you. Go by what you see in the mirror and go by how you feel. A scale will lie to you.

  • WHY ISN’T THERE MORE WEIGHT LIFTING INFORMATION FOR WOMEN or at LEAST GEARED TOWARDS WOMEN? Every weight lifting information is so geared towards the MAN.. and i resent this. I am 55 going on 56. Pre Breast Cancer..beat that.. and now my goal is to lift heavy and heavy i lift. But there is SOOOOOOO little information and most of the information is just so MALE Dominant. Am I the only one that thinks this is true? YOUTUBE IS FULL OF MEN ( Not making fun of the men) however, us older females,,, just females in general need to lift to live. Please explain… thank you.

  • You look amazing! I’ve recently started school for massage therapy and dropped a lot of weight without trying (tends to burn 800-1000 calories in an hour long session!) My joints started really hurting, and I started losing muscle tone. I knew I needed to start hitting the weights again to slow my rapid descent into “skinny” where I never wanted to end up. My weight is where I’d like it to be, but to have the musculature I want (and need to not injure myself and be able to do this job for a long time) I’m going to have to put some weight back on to get those gains.

  • Is Custokebon Secrets effective to lost a ton of weight? We have read many good stuff about Custokebon Secrets (do a search on google).

  • Hi Mike,

    I just started the first phase of your workout plan. The Aflete app is incredible. What I love is how I can record the weight used so I know how much to increase for next session.Two days done! Very pumped and motivated. Question: When I finish phase 2 of the program, how do I continue? Do I just repeat phase 2, each time adding more and more weight intensity? What’s the correct approach to keep growing?

    Thank you!
    Aamir

  • It would be a waste for you not to lose fat while other typical people are able to slim down quickly with Custokebon Secrets (search on google).

  • A surplus is, by definition, completely unnecessary. If the body dont get the energy it needs from food is will simply get that energy from your fat storage.

    Of course you will build more muscle if you eat more, but you can still, without ant doubt whatsoever, build muscle if you’re in a deficit.

    Edit:
    Why do you think humans store fat to begin with? And how do you think humans were able to survive evolution without the ability to use stored energy, and build the muscle needed to survive, at the same time.

    It’s 2018 for gods sake. Stop with the dogmatic bs.

    It’s a shame that so many people take your advice on this topic.

  • I’m supposedly type 2 and after a month of dieting the only time my blood glucose is over 6 is when I wake up, before I eat. I take 1 500 mg metformin at breakfast and by night after my workout my glucose is down to the 4’s. I’m starting to wonder if I even have type 2 diabetes. Taking metformin twice a day almost landed me in the hospital. I’m basically on a two small meal a day diet. Staying away from starches, sugars, and grains.

  • Uh, question? Wouldn’t it be possible to build muscle and lose fat at the same time if you have a caloric deficit, but still have high protein? I mean there are products that have high protein and low calories. A good example would be protein shakes, chips, and some bars from the brand Quest.

  • How do I know how many calories or carbs or protein I’m eating if I’m making my own food? Like I buy flour to make tortillas so how would I know the health stuff in it?

  • Just to add to the sinking car tip:

    If you are trying to break a window you have to hit it in one of the four corners. Windows are the strongest in the centre so may take a lot of hits to break, if at all. If you hit it in one of the corners it will shatter first time.

  • I just love �� your approach, straight down the line and no fancy stuff. From this video I aspire to look at no-one else’s goals only MY own personal achievements, to ‘cheer on’ MY own workouts, listen to MY own body and aim for as much strength as my body can manage. Thank you Mander for your common sense approach and articulate delivery. I’ve subscribed and binge watched….first achievement ✔️��

  • Love your content but how do you train each muscle group more than once in 7 days if its taking the muscle 6 days to recover from DOMs?

  • You’re the kind of person I have always wanted to look like. I don’t want to compete, but I would like to get as close to looking like you as possible and have it be something sustainable.Being over 50, this may be hard for me but I will watch some of your other videos and see what I can see. Right now, I am a little heavier than what I am comfortable with so I can only use hand weights and my treadmill or the Great Allegany Passage right next to my neighborhood for cardio. I have been buying my meats from BUtcher Box…but I still have cravings for sweets. I need to do something.

  • Hey Scott, I’m a really skinny guy and I’m just starting out with weight training. I’ve had some pain in my knees from work so I’m hesitant to do squats, should I focus on isolation exercises until I develop some leg strength, or do squats and deadlifts with a lower weight? Great videos and thanks for your help!

  • Been doing this body building gig seriously for ten years. It boggles my mind that in the age of more information floating about than ever, these myths are STILL around!

    I began weight training back in 1991 and I can tell you we overly complicate stuff now. Thank you for keeping it simple.

  • Its not “alcohol” thats breaking of muscle that has nothing to do with it, its bc the hangover you dont go to the gym. If u drink go to the gym and its ok

  • Your body type is exactly what I was working towards for years when I was younger. I still wish I could attain that. You look great don’t listen to any of the negativity girl!

  • thank you for not stick your ass in my face in your intro I hate it when body builders do that. ANYWAY this was really helpful thank you!

  • As specialist, I believe Custokebon Secrets is good way to lost lots of weight. Why don’t you give it a shot? maybe it’s going to work for you too.

  • Why do they say just doing cardio isn’t enough to lose weight?.. why do they say include weights?.. if it doesn’t help with weight loss?

  • Hey guys I found a legit source if anyone wants top quality gears you can txt directly or WhatsApp this

  • i’m trying to hard to eat in a surplus but i really just can’t. with the meals i make and the water i drink, i barely make it to 1,800 calories a day.
    does anyone have any advice?

  • Hello, have you considered this diet plan called the Custokebon Secrets? My friend says it helps people lost a ton of weight. Is that possible? I also read a lot of excellent review relating to this diet plan. Thoughts?

  • I’ve just started lifting weights. That’s the first time I’ve seen a video based on reality. Sorta knew most of it but all the videos are magic pill style just do this and you’ll be ripped.

  • Mike its first time I decided to write a comment on your Video, cause I feel like it is totally important to appreciate everything you do for people who love and care about their healthy lifestyle… I’ve found your channel about 6 months ago and it has totally changed my attitude towards numerous details which are immensely vital for building a perfect body. You have mentioned to try and find a way to enjoy the process, and believe me, your videos are key motivation for me (and thousands like me) to enjoy the process and never stop progressing. Thanks for everything you do for us and best of luck!

  • somatotypes is psychology nonsense. Genetics is played up WAY too much in the fitness world I think it’s almost laughable. It’s a convenient excuse IMO. That’s not to say people aren’t different. Some have higher metabolisms others lower. Based on thyroid activity levels. If you gain weight easily and have a hard time losing weight you likely have some medical condition and most likely a thyroid condition. This isn’t an excuse though to toss up your arms and say the bullshit you hear certain people say like “wellp? My biology doesn’t allow me to lose weight easily or at my desired pace I must be destined to be fat forever. Why bother even trying to workout.” And vice versa for the other extreme. All one has to know is their own body…. not some body type some psychologist made up and made some HYPOTHESES about. I’ve seen scrawny dudes for most of their lives transform into what some followers of the bullshit would deem a “mesomorph.” I’ve seen whatever the fat people are called… endo? echto? do the same. The skinny guy into a jacked guy just knew his body and that he had to eat… a lot more to combat his metabolism in order to gain size and muscle. it didn’t hinge on the fact of his wrist bone size or some psychology made up somatotype. Case and point. Look at Christian Bale. In 2004 he was nothing but skin and bones in the machinist. In 2005 he was jacked as fuck in batman begins….. then flash forward to 2013 and he was a fatass in American Hustle. He knows his body. He’s mastered what caloric intake he needs to reach his desired goals. And does it. It’s that simple. If you’re perpetual skinny dude sit down and actually count your calories. You could be eating way less than you think you are…. but if you are eating a lot and not gaining anything…. eat more. Do it gradually. Add 500 calories a day for 2-3 weeks and see what that does…. WHILE GOING TO THE GYM. still not gaining weight…. add 500 more. Keep doing this until you see results. 500 calories is nothing. it’s like 3 pieces of bread or 8-10 ounces of chicken breast…. roughly. So if you’re eating chicken breasts for lunch and dinner, 8 ounces per meal…. just bump that up to 12-13 ounces a meal. Its like 7-8 more bites of food per meal. Just don’t go and pig out. Everything said goes for dudes who struggle to lose weight…. just reverse everything I just said. Do it gradually. Why people are so impatient when it comes to eating right and working out has always baffled me. if you’re wanting to make the RIGHT decision to start lifting and being mindful of what you’re eating it shouldn’t be a goal for the next couple years…. or worse yet months…. it should be for the rest of your life. So many people give up after only like 1-2 months as if they’re going to go from 25+% bf to 12% bf in that timeframe…. or they’ll go from being a 130lb weakling to a jacked 200 lb dude deadlifting 700 lbs. So imo if you’re not getting into this for the long haul what’s the point? If you don’t want to be a gym rat for forever… I can get that. You really don’t even NEED the gym. Search some of these calisthenics dudes on YouTube for proof. They’ve done nothing but bodyweight/ gymnastics movements and are cut and jacked as hell. But proper eating should be EVERYONE’S goal and being at a healthy weight. So few people have that goal and/or the self control/ discipline to follow through. it’s disheartening. Because once you get into the rhythm of it it’s like anything else one does repeatedly over time and becomes easy to the point you don’t even think about it really. Best advice I could give anyone is…. fuck the idiocy that is somatotypes and just get to know your body. View food as fuel and not a source of entertainment/joy/ happiness. Do that and the body you’ll create will bring you more joy and happiness than food ever did. And then realize it’s all about calories in vs calories out. Simple. As. That. Your metabolism, not “somatotype” will determine your caloric needs.

    sorry for the rant. I just get so annoyed when I hear people bring up somatotypes as if it’s fact…. when it’s just psychology bs. It’s very eyeroll inducing.

  • I EAT 4 MEALS PER DAY when i want it or 3 times. When i go for competing i eat every 3 hours because i eat for faster metabolisem and to have energy and to gain quality mass.

  • Lunges work wonders with flexing the leg with a number count as you go down and weights in your hands it really helps the butt and legs. I saw some fairly nice results in as little as a month years ago but I was thin at that point. Being overweight now it will probably definitely take much longer.

  • I am the rare female who has been lifting weights since junior high and I’m 31 and I’m NOT afraid to eat lol I love seeing women being real and giving real advice without the bs social media of guides, corsets, and fake pictures! You just earned a new follower!

  • This is why gaming is healthy.
    You stay inside from all the dangers.
    And you have protection of your house and YouTube.
    Because I’ve learned more in YouTube than I do in school.

  • Now I’m really confused. I thought caloric deficit and a little cardio plus weight training makes a difference in losing weight and building muscle at the same time��

  • I’ve been eating in a 400-500 calorie calorie surplus and I’ve seen so much improvement in my body and strength. I was starving myself for so long and didn’t even realize how bad it was for me. Now I’m hungry all the time ��

  • While you are chocking to death, gasping for breath; think clearly and perform this maneuver on yourself several times.. That’s like telling a suicide to reposition the gun and shoot again if the first shot was slightly off..

  • Im diabetic and am on a journey to become a body builder. I have a question: i have insulin then i have a feed, my BSL goes to around 14-15 but starts to drop almost immediatly and with in a hour or two its under 10. Do these high numbers still effect progress or gains. Chers man. Thanks for the videos also, i watched my first one of your series this morning.

  • As with many things, you need to evaluate. I started weight training about 3 months ago, but only 1.5 month i finally got the growth. I took ages to get the right amount of calories and proteins. It is just a matter of trying out and adjusting, your scale is your best friend. Do not look at the body fat percentage of the modern scales since they are highly unreliable, the best are at least 4% off. Also a reminder, i eat around 100 to 140 grams proteins per day, however it took at least a month to get adjusted to that amount of proteins. Before that my stomach and bowels did not agree. If you get lots of stinking farts and your stomach/bowels are upset, most likely you need to get adjusted to the change of diet. As with all changes in diet, your body needs to time get adjusted. Just increase incrementally the amount of proteins in a month and you should be fine. Remember it is around 0.8 to 1 gram per lean body mass (current weight total fat weight). If you do not get it one day due to being busy with life, do panic, our growth of body is measured over a week, not a day.

  • Great video and honest. I always look like the bad girl when I discuss muscle building and body composition. But sleep is the worst for me..You are so good. Thank you.

  • 130 Grams of protein????? What about your kidneys? There is no way I could even think about eating that much as I am a vegan and I think I am getting sufficient protein but I’ve only just started trying to begin to lift weights. Tips and suggestions? Thanks.

  • I’m a diabetic and I’ve been having trouble cause my hormones are messed up and for some reason my Dr does not care but most of the time doing something like running, heavy bag training, or cardio bag lowers my sugar. I went for a run yesterday and I thought I ate things that would raise my sugar a little high but I came back and my sugar was 78 so then I tried to eat something to get it more to normal levels and it jumped up to 203 but after an hour was down to 129 idk Its all crazy

  • Fitness, gym, doing anykind of sport, mooove…just do it! I did a lot of mistakes and I still do. I train drugs free and love it! I went from 69kg to 85kg (around 10%-12% body fat %). I feel great, I love my body more now then I did ever.

  • When I was 6 I was electrocuted by our clothes washer. I was reaching for a toy that fell behind and pulled the wiring out of the socket. I was frozen to the wires and luckily my Dad grabbed a wooden chair and hit me with it.

  • Didn’t think I’d need to subscribe to another channel but here I am. Now it’s you, Shreded Sports and Athlean X. SS sent me here.

  • My new favourite Youtuber.
    Really basic and straight to the point.
    nothing worse than somebidy dragging there videos out longer than needed.

  • The body type thing eg. Endomorph, Mesomorph has been debunked time and again and anyone who claims otherwise either has no clue or are misinformed please don’t believe anyone who claims its true

  • Showing a bit of jealousy towards Matt here? Haha! Yeah, most of us are jealous of his ability to eat crap and still look like that…

  • I once nearly died when my house had a gas leak. Me and my mom didn’t know about it until a man from our neighbours came and noticed that it smelled like gas. A full day and about a week later, the gas leak was fixed, and our lives returned to normality. Had the neighbour not told us, we would’ve died.

  • This video is amazing! It helps me remember of the time when my cousin used Custokebon Secrets to get rid of 17 pounds and enjoy being healthy again! Many people want to lose fat, but we also require to stay nutritious, which is what exactly Custokebon Secrets given.

  • how the fuck do you stay strong and with a big chest when you have a fucked shoulder?
    my shoulder is fucked and i cannot train chest at all anymore.

  • I started lifting weights at 14 started playing high-school football it took me a year to notice change but other people around me even my coaches noticed it but I didn’t you I noticed changes my second year of high-school but everyone else noticed my changes within 6 months you will change you might not noticed it but other people around you will

  • You technically don’t need a lot of carbs. But they are pretty good if your working out.
    And people get fat from gluten inflammation fun times

  • My buddy takes omega-3s and some other supplements for his joints. He has bad knees but with the supplements hes able to work out so he says if he takes them daily without having to worry about his joints as much. Less pain.

  • great video. i have seen you on the matt does fitness videos (which i really like) several times now and i find your information here really good.

  • Finally!!! Asking every fitness person i knowHow can i cont to loose weight but build muscle? Gotta work on 1 goal at a time & thank you for covering the abs. Despite loosing 37lbs i could not understand why my abs dont look any different to me.

  • Great advice. Thanks. Your body is great. I saw your navel. Just go for a small plastic surgery of your navel and make it look nice. Just a small one after numbing the area. No anaesthesia. No offence. Just in good helpful attitude!

  • I never got the point in taking substances of any kind (besides food) for gaining size. I think that makes the difference between those aiming to stay healthy and in shape, and those aiming to show off.

  • Where is it exactly you’re sitting.? Is that your home gym or is it a private gym. Or is it a gym that’s closed but let’s you in.?

  • Been lifting weights for the last 4 years haven’t noticed any improvement I see some people only few months after started lifting weight building muscle more muscles than me I am pissed and fed up

  • Good advice, don’t live vicariously through other people. Know yourself, be yourself and work diligently in
    whatever endeavor you choose-sports, music, academics. Great lecture, Simon.

  • Hey mike, I’m currently at around a 15% body fat, however am fairly skinny. Would you suggest cutting for a short while or just carrying on with the bulk?

  • so appreciate this video….I have been inconsistently lifting weight for one year now…one thing i notice everytime i am lifting for a month..my tummy seems bloated instead of toned ��…My legs and butt have grown..my arms easily toned..butt my tummy is the area that seems to not wanna change…HELP

  • Youtube finally pointing me at some good content!
    I’m in my 40’s now and learned these lessons over the years (and I’m still nowhere near where I want to be..)
    Very refreshing to see someone actually go on Vid to spread the good word
    Insta is cancer for the soul and people shilling product / lifestyles when they are geared up should be liable for prosecution when someone gets sick/injured.
    Just like those Kardashicunts selling bullshit diet nonsense that is killing teenage girls.

    Subbed.

  • You were doing OK till you hit the supplements. I have been taking supplements for a long time sometimes short cycles and sometimes long cycles ( no steroids) and I do feel and see the difference when I am not taking them. I believe you should do a bit more research on this. The other points are MENTALITY, REASON and WILLINGNESS You just said you are in your 30s and you are old… that is silly, mate. I am 47 years old and I train harder, am and feel stronger and lift more weight than when I was in my 20s. All the rest I can agree to, which I am grateful for you taking the time to help others.

  • Excellent video man i have been following you from long time and your videos just changed my view about nutrition and training.I just couldn’t leave without leaving a comment ��

  • I like using weights I find it highly interesting. I really want to build muscle. I would love to see improvements in the next 8 months before Sept 22nd. I want to see a good amount of results. I’ve started a couple weeks ago at 205 and i’m not 194.

  • Hey Mike!
    Ive train for like 10 years and then stopped for two years ago since i got a serious Girlfriend/relationship and finished a BA Education Which took a lot of my energy. Now i lost everything and started all over again for a month ago. And last week i found your videos by accident and i must say… Your videos gives me motivation so much! Thank you and keep doing these:-) You are awesome!

  • Great video, thank you! Lifting weights has changed my life and I appreciate my body and its capabilities much more since I started lifting ��

  • Love your videos just wanted to ask I used to weight 180lb last may and now I weight 138lb 5,4 and been working out ever since my stomach is flat but has so fat their is they any way I will get abs I do workout my abs. I use to just do some abs and hit workout but now for the last 2 moths been doing weight and also I’m in a caloric deficit. I’m try to recopostion my body but don’t want to gain more weight. Should I not be in a caloric deficit or eating more protein. Thanks you if you can give me some advice on a female perspective that would get amazing.

  • I lost alot of strength when I started high intensive cardio. The day after cardio I feel weaker when lifting weights and honestly this is making sense now.

  • Lifting for over 35 years carbs fats protein age 61 diabetes type 2 fat buildup personal trainer specialist sports nutrition where is the membership

  • If you need a “mini cut”, then you’ve eaten too many calories. Bulking cycles are complete bullshit. You can gain muscle without getting fat.

  • I’m a nurse, I track my steps and I walke over 15,000 steps a shift and I do Hiit workouts 3x a week, lift weights, yoga, boxing, jump rope, spinning, mountain bike and surf for atleast 2 hrs a day when there’s a swell, eat pretty healthy and I still can’t loose a pound and my belly still has fat as when I had my son 13 years ago. Smh ����‍♀️

  • I have been diabetic for 32 years. I also have chronic compartment syndrome. Basically when I run or do cardio or many other things my legs feel like a pop bottle that’s shaken up. Feels like they are gonna explode. I had surgery for this but it did not help. I get this same tightness in my forearms too. Know one seems to be able to help me with this problem and it effects my life so much. I was thinking maybe this condition is from my diabetes. Doctors say that diabetes should not cause the compartment syndrome symptoms though. So I’m posting this in hoped that.aybe someone out there has some similar issues or experience with these problems. I still think this may be an effect of my diabetes. Any input would be great?

  • Does the book address weight loss also? I’m wanting to add muscle after losing more fat. I know muscle addition will quicken fat loss, but my focus is weight loss first then upping the lifting intensity to add more muscle.

  • one time i almost got a blood clot because we went to a local pool and when i was swimming my brother aged 7 [he had his birthday this year ok] he pushed my head inside the water really firmly in front of my mommy i ended up inhaling the water and when my heart beat i could feel the water get pushed away from my valves.[ i know how to swim very very well]

  • I use de-load for 72 hours but always incorporates cardio which helps recovery
    Also one of the myths, is the so-called anabolic window

  • This is interesting, as someone recently diagnosed with high blood glucose, I’ve also started hitting the weights again…I’ve actually noticed a pretty solid amount of progress in as little as a month. By progress I mean the changes in body composition, recovery times, and strength levels…maybe I’m just fortunate or maybe I’m just too early on but, I have not run into anything to suggest I’ve been suffering from these major/key drawbacks. I’m certainly not complaining but, despite this my numbers still aren’t really where they need to be…at least not yet…your book is going on my Christmas list for sure

  • I think you look AMAZING. I am a MOTHER OF 7 and a Housewife for the last 4 yrs and I just started my training. Thanks you so much for this info.

  • Very informative, and yeah I m like 5 foot and have been a bit terrified of the idea of gaining muscle and looking hench, as a short person but after looking and my brother who worked hard to get bulked up and healthy(eating etc) as well it has inspired me start making some changes for my own health and well being, looking at some of my old pictures (and placing them where I can see them as a reminder that if I can do it once I can do it again lost weight toned up, healthier lifestyle etc) has inspired me to move forward as well as given me a realistic and attainable goal.
    Your video has been very helpful
    12:27 13:37 so,so, so much truth right there, I wish I knew that when I was younger as I literally did the same thing, another thing I realized is or wish I knew when I was younger was how important it is to get ones GP involved when it comes to diet.

  • All these roid accusations smh, if I trained for ten years I’d hope by the end of it I’d look like Mike, he’s massive, that’s the goal. If you can’t attain a physique like his then my bother train in the gym at all? Everyone thinks being natty means being small and lean or big and fat, seems kinda pointless to spend so many countless hours in the gym if y’all think at the end of it all we’re just gonna be tiny or fat af

  • Sorry I didn’t get the 7th one. I’m currently training 24/7.. like on the first day I did my chest, shoulders n triceps, 2nd day I’ll go for biceps n back workout, the 3rd day I’ll go for legs n abs.. then rest for a day.. but the thing is, I’ll work my abs 24/7 bcs I heard that abs recovered that fast.. am I doing it wrong?

  • I want to get myself back into the Gym after 7 Years. I already learned all this, but it was a great reminder of what awaits. Accepting these things can already be the hardest part. I actually did use some help once and it helped alot, however the time afterwards was not so fun since the strengh increase is not permanent. Its no fun feeling weaker than before.

  • Today I went to the gym for the first time after first having watched Greg’s videos. In literally every exercise, while pondering how much weight to use, I could hear his voice shouting at me “HOW HARD?! HARDER THAN LAST TIME!” ��

    Thanks Sargent, that’s exactly what I needed hahaha

  • Hey simon Miller I am 40 year old male never been to the gym till about 12 weeks ago I am 5’7” and weighed 270lbs started going 5 days a week I only lost six pounds and and you can see a drastic difference in me from now and 12 weeks ago. But I also have a friend that is training me and is prior military and improved his units overall health by 45%. You got to push but know the difference between pain from pushing and injury pain from pushing.

  • nope, that calorie surplus is def not true… ive been on a cut for the last 4 months, losing fat and gaining muscle… it is you need to be eating a protein surplus… if you are working out hard and eating heavy on the protein, you will gain muscle, no question

  • I’m a type 2 with severe insulin resistance. I’m high on long acting insulin and on short acting insulin and not very responsive to meds. I’m so very confused why strength training has had so little effect in the reduction of my A1C

  • one good one I no is if your going to get hit by a car jump bum first in to the windscreen to make the impact forces of the crash much less then being hit by a big metal surfaces

  • One time me and my friends family were on our way to California for spring break when we got hit by a drunk driver on the wrong side of the road I was wearing my seatbelt and to this day i still believe the seatbelt saved my life… always buckle up.

  • this was posted a while back but man, i couldn’t have came across this video at a better time. this lifted my hopes and gave me ambition to push through this slump im having in my fitness journey.

  • I know I’m late but I have had a lot of near death experiences but only one was really deadly. I got into an argument with my sister and she started to choke me, we play fight like this so I thought she was gonna let go until I felt myself get tired and tired, I tried to tell he that I couldn’t breathe but I couldn’t talk. I had got the strength to move her arm and I was able to breathe again. Till this day she still doesn’t know she could’ve killed me

  • Hi there, have you considered Custokebon Secrets yet? Simply just do a google search engine search. On there you will discover that a great tips about how exactly you can lost tons of weight. Why don’t you give it a chance? perhaps it’s going to work for you too.

  • No one ever says that body building never explains the muscle building is not forever. When you get older, your muscles go away.

  • I have almost drowned while rafting once. It was so crowded around the raft with tubers that we couldn’t steer around it. Almost everyone was dumped in. I clinged to my grandpa, and he helped me get to the shore with my mom. My mom said she lost my brother, and I thought he was dead and I would never see or play with him again. Then I saw him in the raft going past. The lesson from this story: Lifejackets save lives, and always wear one.

  • For people that guzzle protein powder all day. Shouldn’t we be mindful of all that artificial sweetener? There’s side effects to most artificial compounds.

  • When I was in 2nd grade, I was playing with pencil erasers and put them in my nose. They blocked my nose so much that I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t take them out as well. I had to open my mouth to breathe and I called my mom and told this. She quickly took a feather lying nearby and put it’s tip into my nose. That made me sneeze hard and the eraser piece came out.

  • This was the VERY first video I ever seen of Coach Greg about 2 weeks ago or so…..and ever since then I been hooked to this guys channel. I watch his videos daily and seen at least 30++

  • I workout 7 days a week eat clean & healthy as possible. My gains are lame & weak af. I workout for me to add a few hrs to my life force & longevity, also I told my kids they can do whatever the f*ck they want after I’m God damn dead. I have to out live them & be a physically muscular threat that can take them out without their mom.

    Having a nice hot toned fit athletic physique & condition is pretty damn awesome.

    Round, fat & looking like as a pillsbury dough boy isn’t a shape.

    Q:Why are married women heavier than single women?
    A:Single women come home,see what’s in the fridge & go to bed. Married women come home, see what’s in bed & they go to the fridge.

  • But what if you are overweight, can’t you be in a caloric deficit, lose fat, and build muscle since you have extra energy stored in your body to help muscle growth?

  • 0:57 “When I first started lifting, there was no Youtube or even much of an internet, for that matter.”

    So… You started lifting when you were like three years old?

  • Im confused on a few parts here if someone could help me out…First was the “holding back in the gym” part. I usually hold back on Tuesdays because Wednesdays I do chest and if I over do it on tuesday, Im too sore for bench. The other is about bulking. So about this time last year I hit a wall. For a long time I wasn’t making much progress, weighed about 185 at the time, so I decided to bulk up to 200. While I was 200 I was significantly stronger than I was at 185, and when I cut to 175, I wasn’t much weaker than I was at 200. So if it because I only gained about 15 pounds? I guess I just don’t get what coach greg doesn’t like about bulking.

  • What is the best product or brand to lost a ton of fat? I read many superb opinions on the net about how Custokebon Secrets will help you lost lots of fat. Has anyone tried using this popular weight loss secrets?

  • Everybody has to learn somewhere along the way… no shame in admitting ya got some stuff wrong, especially seeing as there are people as we speak pushing false information.

  • You da man Scott! I am lucky that when I started lifting I found your channel. I knew that with proper form and not heavy weights that I would get the results I wanted. Once I heard you talk up form not weights I was sold and have been a regular ever since. As time goes by you get to those heavier weights, but without proper form you aren’t benefiting your muscle your hindering them. Thank you for your dedication to us and our weight training.

  • You are brilliant, man. I’ve just stumbled over your channel just the other day and i can’t get enough of you. Everything you say, the way you say it and just you as the whole package is brilliant. ���� Love you, man. Keep it up. ��

  • my only problem is I wanna start training and tbh also because it looks cool, but I don’t weigh allot like I’m 20 years, 1.70 and 60kg, so I’m not sure where to even begin I know I have to change what I eat I just don’t know what to eat, I’m pretty skinny so should I lose weight and train or gain weight and train? I’m really a newbie at this so sorry if these questions seem stupid, I also don’t know where to begin or what to do first, I have weights at home just normal weights to train my arms but that’s all I know haha

  • Hey wait a minute. Arnold schwarzenegger said he would spend about 5 hours at the gym ALL THE TIME and that dude is huge. Care to explain?

  • Hi Scott I am a new subscriber and really learnt a lot from your videos. I have a question and couldn’t find a scientific answer anywhere. Could you please help me? I currently do 3 days of workout. Chest and biceps, back and triceps, legs. I know you recommend push/pull/legs workout but I only have 3 days of week to go to gym. Is it still effective as push pull legs exercise routine? Or should I change it to push pull legs?? Thanks a lot

  • You forgot a few.

    It’s exhausting.
    The bigger you get the more tiring it becomes
    The more mass you have, the more time it takes and the more calories it takes
    The longer you are at it, the more it feels like it’s all you’re doing
    The heavier the weights, the more energy it takes to move them.

    Starting strength is excellent.

    When he says genetics, means more nervous system recruitment, all the way to genetically gifted large muscle bodies.
    I am an endomorph, and don’t even look like I have ever lifted.

  • I’m a Type 1 diabetic and I’ve been trying to build muscle for YEARS with very little results. I’m on an insulin pump and even with that, I still have periods of highs and lows and I’m really beginning to feel like giving up.

  • I am Indian and I came across my Guru Scott Herman a few days ago. Since then I follow your advice sir. Honestly, I don’t follow any Indian fitness gurus or any other guru for that matter. Mostly they want to get famous on youtube and all they care about is views. Sir, you on the other hand has been working on your channel for years and years. I came across a 2009 video of you for a cable tricep routine and I was stumped to see you’ve been focusing on training people genuinely since years. Here in India most gurus want to get views and be famous. Thankyou sir for being the truly bestest of best amongst anyone out there. Love you.

  • In fact once I went to a restaurant in Camargue, France. But bulls are Camargue’s speciality. So I ordered bull steak. When it arrived I cut a large chunk of it and put it in my mouth. But turns out bull steak, even medium rare, is pretty damn tough. So there I was, choking. My whole family was sitting near me on the same table and didn’t notice. So I had to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on myself.

    There, it’s my near death experience.

  • If I reached the body shape I want and am not interested in building more muscle or strength and I kept the same workout routine intensity level. 1. Will I still have muscle soreness? 2. Will i gain fat more easily through cheating meals ( as I always watch my diet)? 3. Will My body adapt to the workout level and I will be able to finish it without feeling so exhausted. I will really appreciate it if you can make a video about that as am sure a lot of people have these questions as well. Thanks

  • Man,,,,,the more I’m trying to learn, the more confused I get! It seems like there is SO MUCH to learn that I’ll never understand! More than half of the terms you talked about I’ve never heard of..and since I can’t afford a trainer, it feels like I’m fated to make major mistakes

  • Scott..Don’t assume!! (AZZ U ME)
    ..I know exactly how LUCKY I AM to have the endless information resources at the tip of my fingers….LOL…
    I Laave yer faake in and out,Bosston Accant Dude.!! Graate Vidoo, keep em cooming..vary halpfuul.

  • My definition of training hard: Working out to the point where you are dripping with sweat, your legs are shaking and you feel sick but you haven’t passed out yet ��

  • Do not (only) integrate the subtitles in the video, please. Youtube has a special feature, for that, to improve translations, lip-sigh recognition and voice recognition. Thanks.

  • due to higher oestrogen levels, women tend to recover faster when weight lifting. So this means between sets it may be beneficial if we have less rest time. This can help offset the boredom that can come for women (speaking from a personal standpoint here) in between sets if we’re working in sets with a male training partner who wants to take longer rest times

  • Is Mike open to pinning his butt cheeks or is this one of those channels where we all pretend he is natty. First time I’ve watched this channel. I’m genuinely not sure.

  • I cannot stress more how important it is to obsess over your blood glucose… I am just trying to gain 5kg of muscle but it’s taking long… consistency is key…

  • What are some ways to lost a ton of weight? I read loads of great reviews on the internet about how Custokebon Secrets can assist you lost crazy amounts of weight. Has any one tried using this popular weight loss method?

  • Thank you for posting this video, even tho I’m seeing it kinda late, always trained calisthenics, and since I moved to England I stopped training. 2 years later, now, I have to join the gym because there are not calistenics parks to train like in Spain. And so I am kinda lost, some machines give me muscle pain, and I am looking for information. I personally dislike the gym because it’s very static, I prefer more military exercising but hey, gotta give it a try, it’s not like I have many options xD.

  • If u wana get big u have to eat period thats it I’m an endomorth its easy for us to gain..but eat good not pizza n shit like that…u dont eat for taste you eat for a reason

  • Regarding motivation: I don’t like the gym. I’m a lazy fatass who would rather sit at home playing games all day eating pizza. However: I did tire of me being a fatass, so I started going. And going. And going. And now, almost a year since I started, it’s more of a need than anything else like brushing my teeth. I can’t say that’s fun either, but it needs to be done. And I think that if you reduce it to that, a basic need that MUST be done, it might get easier. I’m at the gym pretty much every day (doing a personal bro split with cardio included) for about an hour, and with changing and shower and getting back home, that’s about two hours I’m away doing that. Not only does it give something good (training, duh), it also prevents me from just sitting on my ass stuffing my face with pizza and other junk. For two hours every day, I’m healthy.

  • I thought you could be at a slight calorie deficit and still be able to put on muscle mass. As long as your getting in enough to as much protein as possible?

  • Ive been trying everything but feels like i dont gain thing only for about a day or two i sstart seeing results but then end up losing it over night and start getting weak n shaky even tho i ate before then 30-60 mins before working out i also got chronic idiopathic nectrotizing pancreatitis which lead to my type 1 diabetes n im sick n tired of being skinn been 4 years now since i got sick it almost killed me a couple of time had to get couple of emergency surgeries for it all so now i have messed up scared stomache n been tryna gain some of my muscle back i used to weigh 250lbs before the pancreatitis the lowest ive went was 100lbs now im about 140-150 average weight but hate feeling the way i do.. any tips or advice?? I know i csnt be the only one.

  • Okay, so the first time i died i was five and was playing in the ocean since we were at the beach, and i didnt know how to swim so i was just semi in the water. suddenly, a HUGE wave went over my entire body and i was pulled into the water. i vividly remember seeing blue and bubbles coming out of my mouth and nose. thankfully, my brother saved me. then, when i was eight, i was in an empty closet, idk why, i just was, until it fell over, but my friend was able to catch the closet on her knee. ive gotten hit by a car, burnt with a kettle, gotten a lung infection, fallen down the stairs multiple times, but somehow ive only managed to break my kneecaps from the car incident.:’)

  • Thank you so much for this video. I’ve been strength training for about 18 months. It was great to hear about the process because first I found it difficult meeting the caloric requirements to actually gain weight. Yes, it takes a long time. I’m keeping at it! Great encouragement! I’m a new subscriber

  • You know the all worlds politicians their sugar trade unions, pesticides and pharmacy companies made all cltheir civilians fool. All have to suffer from Diabetes, heptiatis, liver kidney disfunction,thyroid, weight gain, ovaries and erectile dysfunction ( I am not kidding here) etc…these disease occured past 20 years slow by slow and it will not stops. Humans life span reduced from 70 s to direct 50-55 of age (before 1990s it was atleast hypotgtical life span of 90 of age survival) it seriously and dangerouse issue. Nature should save human from extinction in near future( God never exist on this planet)

  • Hi man wondering if u could help I’m type 1 diabetic 24 got diagnosed yeah and half ago but my health is dramatically reducing I’ve lost 4 and half stone in two months my blood been threw the roof I just wanna know how to put some weight back on as I look abit skinny

  • I notice a lot of people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets (just google search it). But I’m not sure if it is good. Have you ever tried this popular fat loss system?

  • This should all be common sense. Yet so many people continue to question it. This video is 100% factual but the people that require this video are extreme rookies or complete morons. I’m swayin more towards the “morons” side, cause I still see numerous people questioning me how I’m “so big”, while they still can’t comprehend not to black out every weekend.

  • hm what about sprinters… they seam to combine both muscel and condition from running.. or ar most / all them sprinters on the juice…

  • I’m wondering if I am diabetic. I’m getting it diagnosed this week. I think I’m hypoglcemic. If I work out for a long time or walk for a long time I get lightheaded and my nose and fingers get numb and my fingers curl. I feel sick and feel like puking and passing out. But when I have a candy bar or sugar I feel normal in a few minutes…. I don’t know what is wrong with me

  • Does Custokebon Secrets really work? I notice many people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets. But I’m not sure if it is good enough to lost a ton of weight.

  • Thanks for these videos man. I just subscribed! I’ve been type 1 for 21 years. You are 100% correct about hyperglycemia and the inability to grow muscle. After intense training I make sure to maintain excellent glucose levels in order for my body to heal myself and eliminate any possibilities of oxidative stress damage to my muscles and blood vessels. Stress is another another huge deal that many T1D don’t realize. I had a very stressful year and could not get my sugars to fall within acceptable range no matter what I was doing. It has to do with elevated cortisol levels, which in turn causes your glucose to go up. I can’t agree with you more about everything you said. A lot is trial and error, especially in the beginning of training. For all you other type1s, stay persistent and follow through and you will get there!!

  • In the hot time of the year heat stroke/heat exhaustion/sunstroke are a danger. You are more vulnerable if you are stressed, old, or have not eaten, not eaten enough, etc. If you are trapped in a hot environment the danger is greater. Get as much out of the heat as possible and eat some sort of fruit. If you are alone it is vital to atop this before you fall unconscious. These conditions are caused more by electrolyte imbalance than heat, thus the fruit. Cantaloupe or tomato juice clear the head quite well.

  • Its so hard im getting fat i used to have sixpack now im fat, went on Dafne course and still has not helped blood sugars, had type 1 for 25 years and i dont feel good feel like giving up������

  • I’ve had diabetes since I was 5 and am now 18. I workout regularly and don’t see the results I’d like to. I’m 150 pounds with a 150 pound bench max. I am gaining some strength but no weight and real muscle mass. I struggle majorly with control but what are some foods and supplements that will help control whilst also building muscle/weight?

  • I know making excuses isn’t going to do anything positive for me but I’ve been busting my ass in the gym and am more motivated than ever. I’m 26 and been going to the gym almost everyday for a month and plan to keep it going but now I’m worried I won’t see any gains. I’ve lost weight and think I’m getting healthier but I want to get ripped and have a six pack. I didn’t realize the effect of blood sugar on progression and building muscle. I always check my sugar before I go but if it’s a little high I still go. Just tired of letting diabetes control my life and push through the workouts regardless, I just never want it to be low. This disease is just exhausting and nobody understands ��

  • really good interesting vid thanks. I have type 1 and never appreciated all these effects of it when I go gym. The only reaI impact of it I felt was how I never had the energy or focus to go gym (or work hard if I was) when I had high sugars, it makes me lazy and lethargic. I need to focus on getting my blood sugar down. thanks again real lesson there.

  • How many books are there mate? Bit confused on e-book and technology in general. I dont have FB & would just like to get all the books or is there just one book with everything in it from nutrition to workout plans ect. Thanks

  • I cant grow without adding significantly more calories, I have tried and just spend months in maintenance.. I need to up it around 1200 -1700 cals but with that I gain fat, its not avoidable… I also dont belive the “mini cut” as it encourages a yoyo effect.. and for me I end up with poor results and may as well stay on maintenance.

  • I was at camp greentop and I was underwater for long periods with no signs of drowning whatsoever because there were underwater air vents.

  • I’m glad I found you. I am a T1D discovered at age 30, (twelve years ago), while I was working as a personal trainer. It happened as a result from brain trauma ten years prior. I quit my job when I learned of my diabetes. Now, I am surviving just fine but trying to deal handling life with diabetes on top of the recovery from the head injury. I’ll watch more of your videos soon. I hope I can help out my health and secure a better future.

  • This lady is a natural athlete I wouldn’t question that. I also agree that you can’t always tell by looking, but when steroid warriors profit from others it does bother me

  • Mike, found your Chanel and really e joying the information your providing.
    Hope this is an ok space to ask this, but do you have thoughts on any differences that an older guy would have to consider as a beginner.

    Yes, basically me. 52 this year, 5,7” desk and car bound for the last 20 years after starting my business. Have just got to my most uncomfortable I’ve ever felt and decided enough is enough.

    Heaviest (fattest) I’ve ever been at 80 kg. But have lost so much strength and just don’t want to be like this any more but strength training as an alien experience as of now.

    I have good health, I can just about make a 20-25 minute treadmill session but sense so much weakness.

    Have joined a gym and though I certainly won’t be competing anyway where, I really want to make positive and permanent lifestyle changes and feel better about what I see in the mirror. Would you approach a challenge like me any differently given the shock a decent program would likely have on my completely untrained body. Any advice greatly received. Again, great Chanel.

  • quick question.. how important is it to start off the right way and keep doing things the right way? for instance, if i trained for a year with improper technique. would it be impossible to achieve a Mike thurston type physique if i start and continue to train with correct form right now? (i know thurston is likely unreachable but just used as an example)

  • Thank you.

    So, type 2, now taking insulin. I build muscle extremely easy and extremely fast.

    BUT… struggle, STRUUUUUGGLE cutting fat and keeping fat off. I’m highly athletic and have no idea how to build a regiment for my bio type. No one seems to have an idea how to solve for my lifestyle. Any help?/ direction?

  • 1) get your macros and calories every day, even your rest days
    2) get enough sleep
    3) workout 2-4 times per week
    4) give each muscle group 48 hours to recover
    5) always progressive overload, try to add a rep to your exercise every time you do it (ex 6-8 reps) and when you get to 8, go back down to 6 except you add more weight and so on
    6) always reach complete muscle failure
    7) understand that different rep ranges are meant for different goals and you need to find out which rep range is best for you
    8) just do 3 or 4 sets for per 1 exersise
    9) know that there are different tempos for certain rep ranges
    10) do about 2 exercises per muscle group in a workout
    11) stick to mostly compound exercises
    12) figure out which type of working out your body reacts to the best
    13) in order to gain muscle you must be gaining some fat in the process
    14) do free range exercises and full range of motion
    15) ALWAYS ALWAYS ALLLLLWAYYYYYS keep track of your daily foods on an app like “lose it” or “my fitness pal” and track you progress. Pick a day to weigh yourself every morning after you piss but before you eat. You should gain about 1.5 lbs of wight per week

  • I almost drowned at a waterpark when I was seven. I didn’t know that the pool I landed in after sliding down a water slide was deeper than I expected. Keep in mind I can’t swim. Fortunately a lifeguard was sitting at the edge of the pool and pulled me up.

  • Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, butterbean, lennox lewis or floyd mayweather would probably send a shark retreating with one strong punch

  • Very inspirational… Phil…great work…But I want to know more about the terms which you discussed in video…and want to spread awareness about T1D in India…

  • Hi! Can you make a video about inhalable insulin Afrezza? I just saw it on TV, they said it’s life changing. I’m very interested in knowing How and Why it’s life changing Thanks!

  • The realness honey!!! No shade thrown to the Instagram “booty queens” but you are super real and telling the truth!! I LOVE IT!!! I start CrossFit next Saturday I’m soo nervous but I’ve binged watch your videos and I’m so motivated now ❤️

  • How do you manage to not go low during and after a workout, I tend to keep my blood sugar high just to be safe but it isn’t good obviously

  • Thank you for your video. I’ve been training for a few years but the progress haven’t been what I’ve seen with “fit” friends. I thought that diabetes didn’t affect my muscle building that much, but apparently it does. Instead of looking into regular fitness reports, I’ll look into what you have to say!

  • Sir my question is that i’ve heard it from my friends that the muscle building requires you to be on caloric surplus,is this true. If so then it will elevate the sugar levels causing hyperglycemia. So can we add a dose of fast acting insulin in afternoon time. Atm I’m taking 26 and 24 units of a slow acting insulin in morning and evening respectively. I’ve 5,6 nutrition plans,I got them from my friend. Half of them are fat loss programs and half are muscle building,they all have same protein to some extent but carbs are different.

  • I’ve had type 1 diabetes for 29 years. I am so sick of being treated fragile, and the medical community being scared shitless and not wanting to deal with me when I talk about wanting performance gains from my body. I’ve lost a lot of time and years dealing with these people. Bless all of you fighting to strive for something better for the diabetics out there that don’t want to be average. Thanks for the videos and keep the info coming ����.
