  • I suggest this TMJ treatment “FοΚemΚem Ta” (Google it) to all my patients who`ve got TMJ. In fact, anyone who has read it can verify the effectiveness of its guidelines through showing recommendations regarding how the book changed their lives. I have found this program to be much more beneficial than all the material I`ve collected..

  • Tomorrow i’ll try to do this. Most of this guy’s works are definitely so effective. But i wonder about 5 minutes won’t be enough to improve my body, and i think i must do this work 4 times a day. But is it possible??? Can i???

  • Your friend may be fluffy but he looks tough sorta like a type of guy you don’t wanna mess with butt I meet skinny guys who weigh like 120 and have backs like a demon or cobra and that shit looks scary and it makes you really think twice about messing with them

  • Really high volume for one workout and body part isn’t it (14 sets with the finisher for the back muscle)? I think nothing for beginners.

    and you addressed somethin i been wondering about… cuz i was doin a pull workout with lower rep pullups sets (5-6) and then followed by higher rep chinup sets (8-11)… and owndered if it was ok to have those in the same workout… cool

  • As a totally-fresh beginner for back workout, I don’t know what is the right posture and the correct muscles to use. I love Pamela’s workout but I will only come back to this workout if I learned the proper way of doing back workout from other trainers.

    I felt like I was gonna hurt my back in the middle of this workout. Hope there are some instructions to avoid any unwanted injuries while we trying to strengthen our body.

  • Omg ��! I was halfway through thinking there was no chance it would work, I just finished and feel like there was never any pain to start with

  • The fat dude must be Marine. It takes a brave son of a b$tch to be on the internet with his titties out and oiled up like that. I used to have gyno too and just got surgery last year

  • @Allblanc TV please answer: Is it a good exercise to do your “5 min upper body 5 min lower body 5 min abs” workouts everyday as 15 min?

  • Hey pamela ��, you are the best.and I wanna say you that I trying to slim down my legs since many years.but not slim down.please,my heartly request you to upload some video to slim down my thighs and calves.������������

  • When you realise that your body is disproportionate because your legs are muscular and your abs are starting to show up. But your arm are practically twigs so you do this workout.��

  • For those who are just watching and thinking to do this. Let me tell you �� it was a pretty intense 5 minute but satisfying after finishing.

  • Great video mate, I like how you described everything through text. If you want to collab sometime when this is all over, hit me up. I’ve also created a full list of TRX workouts.

  • Great workout! These types of workout are better than 5 min one 😉 Can u make a full chest body weight workout video as this one please ������

  • Does anyone have any advice on how to make sure I‘m doing everything with the right technique? I‘m really scared of hurting my back if I do the exercises wrong..
    Thanks in advance x

  • Lower body and upper body workout made my muscles “ma’am present ma’am” trying for the first time and I can say it works, I can feel my muscles firm

  • u gotta u gotta pull up or shut up….lmao yow austin you’ve gotten beyond swoll compared to when I first saw your videos a few years back, this really motivated me man,thanks for all the good content fr

  • Honestly it’s good to see a tutorial from someone with a natural physique instead of all the juiced up tutorials. I can relate appreciate and respect natural gains more than the others. Thats just me.

  • I just bought and installed an Archon wall mount cable unit in my living room. Your video really helped me get started with some good back exercises.

  • Yoga is neither therapy nor exercise. It is an occult ritual serving Shiva (see the “Linga Purana”), who is destroyer of worlds. Furthermore, yoga focused on the neck and shoulders invites Shiva (the devil by another name) to take control of the spine and all its nervous connections in what is known as Kundalini. This is both spiritually and medically dangerous.

  • Okay all jokes aside. Been using your workout for months with upper body, abs, and booty workout; all for 4 series. Great result and lots of compliments from ppl about my body. Thank you ���� ������������✊��������

  • Thank you for this. Home schooling and not being able to see the screen properly. And doing crafty things. Well it all goes into the neck.

  • i used 2,5 kg dumbbells instead and was dying. Thank you so much for this great workout! Still wondering whether the dolphin hold is more of a stretch or an exercise?

  • This video is really helpful for me in making my shoulder stronger. Thanks for sharing this video with all of us. Even i have an article on yoga poses for strong shoulder as well. Check it out here: https://www.fitnessattention.com/yoga-poses-for-open-strong-shoulders/

  • Hey I want to say thank you for posting. This is in line with what I’m trying to do. Seems easy enough. The best part is I can do all of these to failure, no spotter required. Besides, I’m not trying to kill, just nice and easy movements to get more fit, not necessarily buff you know what I mean. All of your movements were very controlled, nice and steady. Mind telling me what kind of weight you’re working with? Thank you

  • She is doing a workout looking like a princess with her make up and pony tail…. but I am here red like a tomato with my hair in a messy bun and sweat going down my face

  • Dang I started following Clifford not too long ago, but I haven’t been up on his updated videos. Only seen the old ones. I did not know that he got that big. I was amazed when you said that was him. Like dang he let himself go. But I’m now interested to see his journey back to where he was

  • its great, i just need a different chair for it. But i really notice how tight my muscles are with that last one. it feels like i still cant fully relax my shoulders. i still feel my muscles pulling on my arm. i take several deep breaths and feel it loosen up a bit, but never completely.
    I have the same thing in bed. I can’t seem to fully relax my muscles (not sure how it all works, I am burned out and depressed and anxious so that probably has something to do with it. but i have headaches so often and feel the muscles in my neck being tight the whole time so i rlly needed to find some exercises. thanks)

  • this workout is so nice!! thank you Pam! I have scoliosis and i do this workout daily it has really improved my posture and eased the back pains

  • Thank you for this workout �� Ive been doing this for about 2 months now (3-4 times a week). I can see improvements! My back is firmer

  • Being health conscious, I don’t want to take the allopathic medicines for my Shoulder stiffness. Then on searching I found herbal remedies of Planet Ayurveda. I follow them and used their medicines and got relief. I am fine now. Thanks to Planet Ayurveda.

  • Loved the video. Every since I started following you on YouTube I have been able to transform my body like never before. I hope to meet you one day in orlando.

  • Thank you I just injured my trapezius muscle which is causing so much neck and head and left body pain so I’m going to try this tmm I hope it works
