  • #3 is a big one for me. I’m afraid of getting fatter so I eat as little as I can to gain muscle and maintain weight but some days I take it too far and my workout end up suffering.

  • The carb myth. I’m a hard gainer and could never bench over 160 lbs for years. As soon as I started adding extra carbs to my diet, I benched 200lbs on my second month.

  • What is the best product or brand to lost crazy amounts of fat? I read plenty of superb reviews on the internet about how Custokebon Secrets can help you lost a ton of weight. Has anyone tried this popular lose weight methods?

  • Hi there, have you considered this kind of diet plan called the Custokebon Secrets? My work buddy says it helps people lost crazy amounts of weight. Is that possible? I also heard many excellent review about this diet plan. Thoughts?

  • Anyone tested out the Custokebon Secrets (look on google search engine)? We have noticed many amazing things about this popular diet plan program.

  • Anybody tried the Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google)? We have noticed several awesome things about this popular weight loss secrets.

  • It feels like I’m gaining muscle and then losing what I gained. But my muscles still look the same. I know half the reason my muscles will feel bigger is because of my pre workout because when I have just coffee. I dont get the dizzy feeling, but I dont get the muscle juice I need for a workout.

  • I’m not getting looks but I am getting stronger. I’m not complaining cuz I prefer strength over looks but I would like to know why is that

  • can someone help me out? I use to do 25s (4 x 10 x 25) in each hand to reach 1000 volume, but now I do 30s in each hand to 840 (4 x 7 x 30), I feel more fatigue and I reach failure more with the 30s. But would it be better to go back to 25s and just increase reps?

  • One thing I typically see people mess up is with their diets as typically when they go to eat more protein they go strait for the meat while yes meat is a huge source of protein eating large amounts of meat will harm your over all health rather than increasing protein from one specific source you should increase the number of sources for example have protein bars and nuts for snacks. Other things you should try to work into your diet for protein is beans (not soy beans they will cause decreased testosterone levels), and for increased energy I advise adding a source of carbohydrates specifically vegetable carbs as they tend to be more complex requiring more energy to break down so rice, potato’s, and other vegetables are a great addition to your diet. I also advise you stay away from bread carbs as they can have negative effects when attempting to build muscle.

  • So the thing about weight training is muscles require energy so as your building more, and more muscles if your calorie intake remains enough to sustain your current weight you will loose fat as it will likely be burned by the body to either make or fuel muscles also with the volume if increasing one part doesn’t do much increasing another will probably do the trick till you reach your maximum muscle capacity where your body won’t let you put anymore muscle on your frame though this limitation can be broken with the use of steroids

  • saw some comments complaining about it depends so I thought id share a reply I wrote to one of those, slightly edited tho.

    it’s very true tho, that it does depend. there’s so many factors, internal and external, which no one can take account of. that’s why we go to the doc and get our blood tested and shit. because IT DEPENDS. it’s different for everyone. 2 people may have completely different diseases while having similar symptoms. if it doesn’t depend, you could just diagnose yourself with the medical knowledge on the internet, and go straight to the pharmacy instead of getting tested on, wasting time and money on it.
    and if you can’t figure out what’s wrong with yourself on your own with the amount of information provided online, it’s best to hire a personal trainer or something. even for myself, it’s sad that I can’t pinpoint what’s wrong either. I get disappointed when I hear it. but it is how it is, and ya all gotta understand it

  • This video is definitely amazing! It helps me remember of times when my sister used Custokebon Secrets to lose 16 pounds and enjoy being healthy again! Most of us want to lose fat, however we also require to stay nutritious, and that’s exactly what Custokebon Secrets given.

  • Yeah yea yeah, the reason you aren’t getting muscle is because you’re staring at guys like Arnold and Jay cutler and comparing yourself to them while not making bodybuilding your full time job with steroids.

  • I train hard enough I just dont eat enough calories cuz I’m still recovering from an eating disorder so I’m afraid of eating enough

  • Not stretching is a huge mistake when I first started. Also, not focusing on form and imagining the muscle part you’re working on. Been training for 8 years, played 2 years for college football and 1 year for college soccer.

  • The worst mistake I see people make is not trying to build forearms, always see everyone nowadays without any forearm muscle and just biceps and it’s ugly

  • But what if I’m a dont carry enough weight and fat (stick person) what should i eat/not it and how should train at the gym ��

    Sorry for my bad English
