  • For the average person 2/3 of the arm is the tricep and 1/3 is the bicep. With Jeff, four thirds of the arm is the bicep and five thirds is the tricep.

  • I just saw a comment I did when I was 16 hahahaha 21 now an update..I’ve tried this and it actually helps and everytging make sense now…the whole truth behind it is that what you do before sleep affects your subconcious and your sleep-dreams..mind doesn’t know fake and real..just like the visualisation experiments that have proved you can get better at something by visualising it..dreaming about it is also effective..the mind is a powerful tool..you also get better at these moves doing them for 300 and 180 reps per night..that’s 9000 skull crushers and 5400 hammers per month..109500 and 65700 per year..you master them you actually get stronger at them because they become automatic and easier..it really does help a lot

  • I just started to watch you videos and they are going to be very helpful, I am 56 and need a link to a meal plan that I can get started with so I have enough energy to go to work every day, and start a wight lifting program please help in this area. and keep up the good work.

  • This is the first video I saw of Jeff Cavaliere and it impressed me so much that I have followed him since; Looking at all the videos he has released. I was impressed by his knowledge, his mild mannered demeanor and of course his physique. It is his physique in this video that I have aimed to emulate and not his latter shredded body type. Thank you Jeff for all your teachings even the one with the fake weights drama, a genuine example of online bullying; You have done what we are all told to do about online bullying and ignored it.

  • When i used to frame houses guys would come in huge arms I think man this guy is going to kill this job they wouldn’t even last an hour how can someone so big be so weak body and mind what a shame

  • how time passed! kinda yesterday hear Lee planning to get a break from contests to have a kid with wife Robin…i think it was in ’91-’92

  • I’ve trained with Denis at Iron Addicts Gym, he looks great and works out the smart way. I wish I could have trained with Rich but I kinda do when I play his YouTube videos during my weight training session. RIP Rich

  • Thank you for sharing these informations with us bro, im a skinny boy, i wanna know if i could gain some weight while im in home? Like only with push ups and eat a lot.. is that possible? Thank you

  • Can’t argue his arm size but not much time under tension there. A bit too much momentum used imo. This would be better, slowing the motion up and down on the bicep exercise.

  • Tips for skinny guys. Usually they have same body type and not real wide.
    1. Bulk up… I have done this and recommend anyone who is Low in body fat to do so…wish I’d started ealier
    2. This guy’s tips were good but he said to do 2 sets with 10 to 12 reps…. I’d do at least 3 sets for likely 5 per exercise… (not sure if understood that part)
    3. Don’t assume you need workout machines to get big… my progress is with only free weights and is really amazing after one year. Would show pic but can’t on comment lol

    4) listen to the other points be made in video and when curling (not talked about) keep your pinky up and rotate it with your arm to increase work.

  • I like your personal natural voice.
    So not that high tone screaming commercial voice most youtubers use.
    I am amazed by the order of the exercise.
    Will give this one a try for the next two months.
    Keep up the good work.
    We’re still fans of your dad.

  • Keep the videos coming this video really helped me a lot and l mean a lot l loved all of the old videos has well and l have just got back from a 2 mile run and then l done a arm workout with my dumbbells and l will give this ago ����������������

  • Love ya rich, you should never of used oils.you had a great bicep muscle. Rich piana the piranha. Or when you meet him rich the gentle giant.
    The nicest and down to earth guy in the industry.
    If there’s a gym in heaven I know you’d still be pumping.

  • Rich’s arms are like balloons, lol, no definition when the muscle contracts whatsoever! Rich we love you man… seriously, a larger than life character… your genuine laugh, charisma… miss you buddy. SHOOOOOP!!!!!…. RIP brother

  • How calm and humble Hunter sounds. You can clearly see his good upbringing. You’ve succeeded the duty of a father Lee. kudos to you.

  • It’s all wrong, you don’t need to build big shoulders and biceps bcoz it makes u slow. You thin noodle shoulders can be more powerful and faster than big ones.

  • Watching this after the perfect arm workout shows how Jeff really respects consistency in his information and puts his money where his mouth is

  • WTF dude, u said that having big arms doesnt matter, it looks like u had a pro come in and inject ur arm full, when u lift, they dont flex, ��, ur fake af

  • Comment section is a meme, but I honestly did it for a few months and it felt like my arms had gotten bigger, but it may have just been a mental thing.

  • I’m just happy to see a father and son working out together. What a beautiful thing. I would love to do this with my children in the years to come. ��

  • I don’t understand, you say 48 hour rest is needed. but if you do fullbody workout you only get 24 hours rest. Because Monday, wednesday and friday is only 24 hours between.. So?

  • My biceps are my most dominate muscle and this shit really got them pumped to the max. I have those 5 gallon water jugs at home that you gotta flip over to put on the dispenser thing and I swear I couldn’t even do that, I spilled that shit all over the floor ��
    Had to use my legs and torso to find a way to put it on. Good shit. RIP ��

  • Really good tips! Especially on paying attention to the detail on the form throughout both exercises. That’s probably the most important part to get those specific results

  • I just started working out like 3 months ago.i’m not taking no supplements or drugs. How long does it take for a beginner to get ripped in the arms? I been training 4 hours a day.

  • He makes a good point. I remember when I was an amateur boxer and the first time seeing the dude across from me with big guns..You can’t help but to be a little intimidated, but I also learned that physics don’t win fights luckily.

  • This vid: “It Will End Very Quickly” | Cell Biology EXPERT Shares His Discovery explains what Rich is talking about. I was blown away.

  • I’m skinny af imma start working out tommorow so I can look better because I do get bullied for it but as soon as this Corona shit is over imm coming outta this bigger and stronger

  • I noticed you increase the weight for some exercises each set but other exercises it looks like you use the same weight each set. Any longer logic behind this? I have been using your workouts for the past month and I love the burn I’m feel the next day! Thanks for the videos.

  • Nice video man! I have been training arms for a month with dumbbells I’m a beginner. I am skinny but I am eating a lot more, I eat a shake with a lot of calories in the morning and I used to be unhealthy but now I’m pretty healthy. I eat a lot more now and its nearly all good food. I haven’t seen any real progress so far but I wanted to ask is training forearms, biceps, and triceps one day then having a break the next day is a 24hr break good enough or should I take a 48hr break like you suggested? Btw I only have dumbbells to train arms with will i not get as good gains only with dumbbells and no other equipment? Sorry this is so long. ��

  • Only thing you need for home workout is resistance workout set. ������

    I love it so much, because its simple to use and you can gain great muscle with them. I got my at trainhome shop (check on google).������

  • Is this made for a twelve-year-old who’s never exercise in your lives I’ve done all these, except for the wall push-up since I was 12 the problem is now I’m 50 years old, that drive it’s kind of gone!

  • Tell me one thing. What about the weights? should I maintain consistent constant weight of dumbbells or should it be increased for higher reps?

  • Please, if you are a beginner lifter or a lady and looking for lifting advice go to a channel run by professional, experienced lifters who’s goals are similar to yours. Doing many of the exercises in this video tend to be poorly explained and thus could lead to you hurting yourself, or they might be for lifters who have a lot of experience under their belt. Not everyone can do chin ups and handstand push-ups so please don’t attempt things like that unless you are certainly able to. Exercise is about making yourself healthier and it you hurt yourself doing something that’s too challenging or wasn’t explained correctly to you that leads to a potential injury is exactly the opposite of that.

  • Go high reps especially biceps. Biceps are a very small muscle group. When it comes to arms the pump helps with growth like crazy. TUT like he metioned is also key. Nice squeeze at the top with a slow negative

  • one of the best videos to see how fake Rich’s arms are. they barely move. his definition is an illusion from his tattoos. without them it would be blatant

  • I remember Lee from back in the day in the 80’s and he still looks amazing!! The old schoolers way of building that body always works!! Inspiring!!

  • All exercise is gud but… The model doing exercises.. Need to tighten his muscles… I think the whole body… He doesn’t look body builder… His body is way to chubby… He need to focus on the given exercise ����with cuts and hardess… He looks like a bolide chiken����

  • Man my arm looks pretty good when I flex then when I don’t I look super skinny. And also I’m starting not being able to get my bicep to hyportrophy. I used too, now only ny forearms are working.

  • Labrada Sups.. If it’s on the Label It’s in the Bottle!
    Quote from Lee 1990’s.

    I use them since the early 1990’s! When Lee was on the Olympia stage and all we had were magazines to gather training and diet info. He was the inspiration for me to adapt the lifestyle.
    Big fan.

  • If anyone here doesn’t believe this.. it’s called nucleus overload made by 3D alpha.. and it works but only try it for 20-30 days then take off a whole week off training and it’ll grow once you’re back to normal regime

  • I’m new to the size scene and I don’t understand why everyone hates on rich piana. He gives killer tips, openly admits he is not a natural, and he is honestly cool as shit so idk what the beef is �� Rest In Peace brotha man I appreciate the motivation

  • All these years i wasnt watching rich piana and had the bad image for him
    i saw 1 video of his right now, Saw his positivity and all that helpness he gives for free
    Damn why did such a great person pass away
    judging by 1 video he straight up looks the realest person in the fitness industry

  • Dude that’s me on an extra 500 migs consistent

  • Why do such simple and infortmative videos just like these only get people 75k views and 17k subscribers whereas YouTube channels which give the most complicated and unnecessary info happen to have millions of views and subscribers

  • I saw massive changes in my arms, specifically the two heads of the bis when I started incorporating chin ups into my routine. Both regular chins and neutral grip.

  • I’m just going to tell everybody this now, you can lift these weights as many times as you want you’re not going to get bigger you’re going to get toned, you need to make sure you’re eating almost twice as much if you’re skinny, if you’re eating 3 meals a day, then eat 5 and in the space of 2 months of doing this you will see more improvement in this then in 2 years of just lifting weights. Just thought you should know.

  • what a pleasure to watch the two of them train together brought a smile to my face watching the workouts and how much respect they have for each other: truly inspirational. best of luck on the road ahead hunter!!!
