  • Bro. I’ve been using your video taking notes from your exercise advices and incoperating them on my gym sessions. I must say, I’ve seen a major difference. Also, I love how consice and getting straight to the point on your videos.
    Shout out from South Africa.

  • One question, I’m really tall and i weight 264 pounds so I’m having problems getting out of the flat bench after chest exercises, the bench is too narrow and I haven’t developed my abs too much yet, so I find it easier to roll out to the sides instead of curling to the front. What’s the correct way to stand up from the flat bench? It sounds stupid but it’s a bit embarassing lol

  • This man is probably the most in shape and the most knowledgeable trainer there is out there. When Jeff recomends an exercise you just take one look at his body and you know that he knows what he’s talking about. I’ve gotten some weird looks in the gym from performing some of his exercises but damn have they helped me alot!

  • “What’s up guys Jeff Cavalier (move into robot voice) aathaleen eehx daat caaawm!”, he sings it in this monotone way every time and it’s hilarious but take note, that’s just one among many reasons I love Jeff and his awesomeness, he reminds me of all the best trainers I ever had plus a doctor and a physiotherapist rolled into one. I wish I could win the lottery and hire him as my personal trainer, he knows what’s he’s talking about like no one else. Jeff, if you’re listening, please hire me as your new ‘guys approaching 40 who used to be ripped but life came and made them weak and fat, then they met Jeff….’ guy. I’m so up for that.

  • ALL IS GOOD! just a little hint/correction the last exercise PRESSUPS which is actually a pushup but nvm… You still doing it wrong or more like not fully correct. At the top when you finish the push your back is flat try not to do that but push beyond that…. something like this https://i.ytimg.com/vi/IODxDxX7oi4/maxresdefault.jpg I hope the link to the image will be active…. you will get even MMMOOOOAAAAAARRR GGGGAAAAIINNNZZZ>>> When finishing at the top try to just squeeze your pecs

  • Guys
    I hate to bust ya bubble
    But Arnold’s chest, like Franco’s, was a lot of hard work and a lot of insane genetics. All you old school Bodybuilding guys already know this! You young guys who think a couple of SARM orders and this routine will get you Arnold pecs, forget about it

  • This is probably a rhetorical question.. Do you have any 90 day workout programs out? Something simple effective for guys who just have the basics?. bench, barbell, dumbbells, squat / pull up rig.

  • Is it weird that watching youwork out almost activates my mind muscle connection n really helps me ” feel the excersice”if ya know what i mean

  • Awesome job all together sir, new exercises for a lot of ppl
    But could you please do some videos about nutritionhow much to eatHow much you eat/ how often?
    Thank you

  • How to Kneeling Cable Abdominal Crunch SHARE fresh video to us all peoples like me doing wrong pls share top 10 modes in cable crunch.

  • I like your videos but I wish you had a page with illustrations as sometimes I’m at the gym and I forget the motions and cant exactly re-watch the video there and then as I’m strapped on time and the internet is slow.

  • You always reinforce my beliefs from my own training. I connect with your style more than any youtuber. Even Jeff Nippard and AthleanX. Thank you sir.

  • Tried the twisting pushup for the first time today, i am waaay to stiff in my shoulders to fully adduct my pecs at the top �� and it’s hard as hell

  • Great video bro! Definitely another cable video. I’ve been lifting for 22 years and I’m barely getting into the cable workouts. Just know the bare basics.

  • Hey Ryan,
    Addicted to your videos as they’re all meat and no fluff. You explain things so thoroughly and so clearly I just can’t tell you how beneficial your videos are. Do you happen to post for workouts… Number of sets and reps etc.? Thanks again for all you do!

  • To the people that have premium membership in thenx app is it worth it, because there is a lot on information in the channel, I am asking because I am considering buying it and want some opinions. Hope the answers are not like ”yes” but more detailed ones

  • Ok so I took the quiz and I’m ah hard gainer I guess so basically the first tweak is to eat more meals but smaller portions so in all what time should I start eating for the day and how many hrs in between I think I’m on track as far as healthy foods so morn n is banana spinach leaves peanut butter powder blueberries almond milk unsweet with multigrain bread 2 eggs sandwich then lunch is chicken breast jasmine rice avocado steam broccoli bottle of water then the gym dinner is sweet potato more rice steak chicken or salmon for the meat steam asparagus or broccoli and maybe a kiwi before bed what am I doing wrong

  • Jeff I am big fan of yours. Everything is great about you except armpits hair. They look nasty on everyone. Please consider shaving or trimming them off.

  • I have a super baby chest but banded Pushups are a CERTI chest exercise. Just hold a band behind your back and do a pushup you will feel it

  • I’ve been lifting for 30+ years. I grew up in a Gold’s Gym in Southern California and worked out daily with both amateur and professional body builders and athletes, I played football in college (D1), and spent four years in the 3/75 where fitness is a way of life and mirror time is mandatory. At this point in my life am 46 years old, 215 with a 36 inch waist, and abs; so, not many people can tell me shit about lifting. With that said, I can honestly say that this is the best channel that I have seen on YouTube in this genre. You have earned my subscription and respect with the quality of your content and no bs style of getting right to the point. Keep up the good work brother.

  • These videos are the best. None of this ” now this is the be all and end all,” but, keep trying, find the best angle that works for you,” probably the best advice.

  • I don’t feel my chest while doing these, it’s just feel my arms. Is that how it’s supposed to feel or am I doing it wrong? Any suggestions?

  • I didn’t think this was going to be a very good video but I was wrong. You’re also a very likeable cool guy! Many thanks and keep up the good work, you deserve a lot of subscriptions ����

  • I tried your chest exercise, and the first comment I got at my gym was “WTF you doing?” A fat guy told me that, but he couldn’t bench press 225 once

  • love watching your video’s. awesome tips. I dropped from a 220 pound pile of shit to 169 pounds of somewhat in shape over the past 7 months. I have been putting your tips on exercises to practice in the gym and i am starting to like what i see in the mirror. I’m not even close to where i want to be but i am starting to see results. Thank you for the awesome videos.

  • Anyone who wants to talk shit about him GIVING away macros obviously isn’t dieting. Bc THAT’S the most important part of training. The nuanced exercises come much later. U don’t count macros. Your gains will be minimal and u will plateau fast

  • Video would be better without the shirt. Hard to visualize how the lower muscles are moving if they are covered up. Cool video though.

  • Hi Chris! I have some pretty intense shoulder, elbow and wrist pain and popping from practising the planche. Do you have any tips for gixing that?

  • Can u do a video with a workout that involves home equipment such as barbells, dumbbells/kettlebells, and a bench + pull-up bar?
    Actually, maybe do the workout for me?:-)

  • These are really good tips. And thank you for getting right to it and not making us sit through 5-10 minutes of your rambling like you normally do. I’m incorporating all of these

  • Hello
    I am from India and I work in IT. Can you tell some exercise for people who are having jobs with 12 hours Monday to Sunday.
    Make some video for people like me who are business men or does long hour sitting jobs.
    Give some exercise that can keep us healthy. I just want to be healthy and stay away from hospital. Exercise that can be done by middle age person regularly 5 mins or 10 mins max

  • …Thank you for this video! Any chance you could tell us the music name? Playing this in our gym, could cause some major training!!!

  • I do my Cavalier crossover a tad differently, once I’ve reached the bottom, I engage my lat and the weight goes to my side, slightly behind, then contract the chest and feel that stretch reflex perk

  • Hope you guys enjoy this video. If theres a certain topic that you want me to cover in the next video let me know below. Thanks for tuning in!

  • Can you add workouts or tips on how to get around injuries such as golfers elbow or anything related to injuries involving tendons in your arm?

  • The plate squeeze was incredible. Absolutely contracted my chest. My shoulders hurt from normal flies and this alternative fucking hurts. Amazing! Cheers Jeff

  • Man I wish I had a cable machine lol. does anyone know if resistance bands would work if I could position them in the right angles??

  • since were lockdown bcoz of covid.can i use curl bar for inclined and bench press for chest workout?i dont have long bar to use here

  • I have bad shoulders, I had to changed up by dropping the weight I lift by 20 to 40 pounds. I started my chest exercise with a slow and steady routine with constant tension in each sets. I have not lost chest size but my chest is the one body part that is much easier to develop.

  • Hi Im Renato i live in Holland and im interested in your workout program and the price its perfect but i have a problem i dont have a credit card and hope that i can pay it with another way. My email is [email protected] hotmail.com please contact me if we can find a solution. Regards

  • There is no reason to decline bench, and there is a good chance for injury as you are semi upside down and can get discombobulated heavy weight coming down wrong will tear your shoulder…

  • Gotta tell you… I enjoy your channel. It’s not too preachy like some others while giving great instructions and advice without extra fluff and “look at me”.

  • I’m a teen girl and I want to get stronger, I don’t really know anything about exercising though. I still want a feminine shape so I don’t know if exercising would make me look more square? Sorry my English isn’t great.

  • I get real bad pain in my shoulders when I press, I think its rotator cuffs but unsure and the docs here just fob me off, if it’s not broken then they don’t fix it, I can train back and arms with decent weight but my shoulders and chest I can’t really do much with, I have stopped training many times and my shoulders are fine for day to day activities but as soon as I start lifting again then I’m in agony any suggestions on how to get them to heal?

  • hows the Situation having a multidirectional instability of the shoulder, should i Do this Low range exercise lying in the bottom? because i am Not Sure about if it could harm my shoulder in the long term…

  • I am a girl and I’m doing this kind of go crazy and I want them to think I’ve got and I’m strong that’s wrong but this is why I’m watching it because one thing but far I don’t

  • I think I said it in another video you posted about the cables I love the cables for arms and pecs like you said don’t have to put a ton of weight on but rather focus on the contraction… you can hit so many different angles and variations like u mentioned especially people that are not used to hitting different angles will definitely find new ground in their gains… I especially like the cables because you can set yourself up to really get that stretch and also do single arm movements and really come across the body more so than you ever could with any dumbbell or machine fly… also I don’t do many dips on the actual dip station but I do do the ones you were doing at the end of this video because honestly last time I did actual dips I felt at the top when you really get that squeeze it was actually working the pec something I never felt before I always thought it was more a tricep exercise but when I felt that in the chest I realized that I could further emphasized it with the cables by coming across the inner part of my body more and sure enough I felt it I will definitely try switching my palm over like you did two really hit that bottom outer part of the chest love the videos bro keep it up

  • Love your informative videos with great edits and graphics, showing and explaining technique, form, and the best way to perform each exercise! GREAT CONTENT! I love it!

  • So glad I found you! I am getting more out of your 10 minute workouts than the program that I have been doing for 8 weeks 30 minutes a day. Thanks!

  • Thanks chris Ive subscribed to your channels with various accounts. Am a big fan. All your workouts r super effective. Say hi to Zen

  • Another way to do the press up that gives you a compound lift is to place 2 heavy dumbells where you push off with your hand. Place them close enough to where you feel your chests activated. THESE ARE KILLER

  • I’m having trouble with my chest. In the sense of I have drooping side pecks I don’t have a big chest so this makes my chest look weird with my areolas having droopy sides. Thanks for this. Let’s hope this changes my current status lol

  • Thanks for the amazing videos! What’s the advantage of buying the workout packages on the website if you have also tons of free videos here in Youtube? Thanks.

  • Great video! I am really enjoying watching your videos and learning a lot! I do have a question for you.

    I am just over 2 weeks out of surgery to repair an inguinal hernia. The doctor said I was good to start working out again but low impact and only resistance machines, 40 lbs or less.

    What would you say would be the best way to get the most out of my workout with these restrictions?

  • for someone as experienced as me its easy to see through it all those exercises are camouflaged face pulls…..but serious man i cant live without ur vids anymore its too good you saved me from really hurting my ass because i was already doing stuffs wrong like deadlifts thank you very much!

  • Gabriel Sey and Athlean-X are the only Fitness Youtube channels I trust. The sheer TESTED knowledge and honesty just flows through their content.

  • Idol can you show how you eat meal every day, what do you ate breakfast,lunch,dinner… and idol how many gm if protien you ate the whole day until night

  • Hopefully u can give me some advice on this guide me I have 4 months to bulk up and put some size starting police academy in April I’ve been in and out the gym for last year I’ve gained strength but hardly any size

  • Hey man. Excellent workout get knowledge.
    Ok. Say I train money doing this chest…max out blowing it out my arse at 45 mins. I’d feel I need another suggested workout from you for chest maybe fri? What other chest exercise do you have a link.
    Thank you man I’ve training a long time came across you getting a bit sore, pumped? Love it so was gonna stick to a daily programme… oh and say two body groups a day? Do you think it pointless

  • Your videos are amazing, I have osteoarthritis and put my weight on my joints, but I can pull on them, so I can’t do dips or bench press I can use the wire and dumbells as show in this video and have had better results than all the press ups I ever did in boxing in my younger years. Thanks for all the tips it keep adding to my workouts and my workouts are getting longer, so well chuffed, cheers.

  • Love how he explains stuff like NOT to lock out elbows. Everyone at the gym locks out their elbows and takes all tension off their muscles.

  • I’ve tried all these before apart from the bench press with the safety rack on. I’ll definitely be doing that to enable overloading without need of someone to spot

  • Куча мышц, но не на долго, убитое сердце, почки, печёнка и тд, пожизненный инвалид, всего чего он добился только по связям влезание в доверие другим людям, а теперь всё что он заработал оплачивается на лечение всех этих мышц в молодости, вот и весь экшен этого ролика. Вообще качки это по жизни обиженные люди, их в детстве обидели, потом они начинают мучать организм стеройдами, белками и другой химией доказывая чего-то, кому-то, но всем по барабану на эти действия, им бы к доктору полезней было бы обратиться ��

  • Try a slight decline dumbbell press. I like a single arm dumbbell press as well, which hits the and a bit too for stabilization. Oh yeah, da ting has been smashed yet again!

  • Sir my right and my left chest are diplaced they both look different in the lover and side portion what should i do because when i perform any excercise left chest is increasing instead right chest doesn’t look the same

  • Hi sir,
    I am from India,Sir I am over weighted 103kg I want to lose my weight,and plz tell me the one week routine for fat burn and also to loose belly fat.
    Sir please help me out.

  • trying the dead stop exercise, I feel it in my shoulders a lot. Am i extending at and angle up towards my head too much you think?

  • I am a young child. When my family went to Disney World, there was always a bar in front of me. So I did the only logical thing; dips

  • Here I will explain why these excercises he is presenting is not good at all (most of them). Enjoy:
    The first excercise: you just gotta put your hands together to get full contraction when you do dumbbell bench press, then you have destroyed the need for the pushup you do which activates the triceps alot and thereby losing chest load.
    The second excercise: is a anterior deltoids excercise, the tension on the chest is isometric, which doesnt build much muscle mass if any at all.
    The third excercise: Dumbbell-pullover will be a really bad “upper-chest excercise” no matter what you say, and where you are squeezing.
    The Fourth excercise: Flies are compromised in the way, that by leaning your arms out in a fly, will load your biceps with some of the load you want on your chest, not better than decline/flat dumbbell bench press either..
    The Fifth excercise: there is no more chest-muscle-fibers beyond the middle of your sternum, so no need to go more than to the middle, you are not loading your chest more, by doing the twist, your sides just takes the “extra” load your chest won’t get, and it seems that it actually takes more in the way he is doing them, waste of time also.
    The sixth excercise: THE FIRST USEFUL EXCERCISE! WOWOW! Super excercise, good allignment, but don’t really need to pass your arms, to bring them all together is fine
    The seventh excercise: this will work your anterior deltoids much more than your chest, he talks about fibers going up, but if you look at an anatomy charge where the upper arm is straight from your body (like in a dumbbell benchpres) you will see that the upper chest fibers has moved up to match the line of the upper arm, so actually you are not working much chest muscle fibers when doing movements in an incline direction at all. Look for yourself: put your hands up straight from your body, and see how much of your chest is over your arms (which is nothing) and see how much is at the line of your arms, and below the arm-line. you will discover that all of your chest fibers are either in line or below, so only flat and decline dumbbell bench/cable-press is needed for chest-development. you are wasting time if you do otherwise, but your call ofcourse.. (you can also see that it is the muscles over his chest that are working the most in this seventh excercise when he performs it.
    The eight excercise: only his shoulder is moving the weight here, he squeezes but as I have said before it’s isometric on the chest, which sucks for muscle-building.

    Dips are also compromised. you only need dumbbell bench press/cable press in a flat to decline direction for full chest development. focus on full range of motion, good alignment and you will win.

  • I fucked my shoulders when I was 16 doing flies on a bench, haven’t really done them since have only used the fly machine… Shall try them on the floor!!

  • Merry Christmas bro awesome video thank you for the gift and that gift that you gave me at the workout video bro thank you Merry Christmas to you bro lots of love I got your back finding

  • Hey Vince, I like your chanel bro it’s HIGHLY PROFFESIONAL. It has super proffesional stuff and tons of exercises BIG RESPECT. As a Personal Trainer myself with 15y of experience, I must say I’m inspring by your chanel and also from the way you’re feeding us with that information, so I want to thank you bro. You got one big fan now. Cheers.

  • I know I hate when people mention age but I’m 14 eat a shit ton and have the ability to do these and think I’m a Meso I’m fit about 5-9 and 140 pounds but am lacking muscle development what can I do

  • Loving your channel. New video request: recommended splits. I know you put an emphasis on areas one wants to concentrate on of course. My arms seem to always lag behind chest so I do them together (bis and tris) on their own separate day and do back/chest/shoulders together (makes for a brutal day). But I’ve been thinking about changing it up and doing more of a push / pull split.

  • As I was thinking, damn, I don’t have a dip bar. He mentions counter, kitchen table…. No excuses,,, then I see the Korean dips..lol

  • That incline dumbbell one, is it safe to do? I tried doing so in gym and felt like all the blood just went towards my head area making me feel hot, as if it might come out of my ear lol and I’m not a beginner been one year doing gym. Never felt this before and only during this exercise i felt this way

  • I love ur counciling sir.
    But can u pls. Help me by suggesting some exercises that can be done at home only!����������������������

  • I’m doing lower chest pectoral fly right now and the wtf stares I’m getting is hilarious. But I’m in set 4/5 and I can feel it working. I’m adding this to the list

  • Nice one! I am still one of those that, when doing a bench press, instead of developing my pecs.. actually my upper abs are the ones that gets noticed.. Guess that “If your upper abs sticks out further than your chest, you’re doing it all wrong!”

  • Man idgaf what girls think. That just makes them think theyre the shit and what a man needs hell na i domt need a hoe to live all i need is a bench set

  • Appreciate the content man! Short sweet and to the point without over explaining the exercise. I also appreciate how you invite your viewers to discover instead of saying “this is the best way” because we all know that everyone is different and exercises don’t always work the exact way for everyone. Anyways you gained a subscriber and I’ll be looking out for your next video. God bless

  • jeff is ridiculous in the fact that he really understands how the body works on a deeper level. This dude has put in the HOURS and that’s why we love his content

  • Anyone have any good set/reps they use to gain more muscle? I currently do 4 sets, 8, 8, 10, 12 with moderate heavyweights. Thanks! My goal is to get a much bigger chest.

  • First one… turn your hands in, when at full tension. 2 use the cables for low range like you show. Central, and a few inches higher. Incline do wide and close grip.

    Great video

  • Anyone else try a different low volume program? I was a 5 set 8-12 rep guy for years. Typically bench/incline/flys/dips and variations to change it up. Lately been doing a program with 1 day with 3 sets 3-5 reps bench, one day with 4 different chest exercises 3 sets, 6-8 reps. My bench went through the roof

  • So I’m at 75 am watching this to get some new exercises for tomorrow’s chest workout! We’ll see what happens, but I always try to keep the muscles under tension with the best form I can do. Slow eccentric contraction, no swings ever. Thanks so much. I do learn from you innovative training. Cheers, Jim

  • I started Calisthenics the first time yesterday, but after my first workout, I had something is called numbness I guess in my hands and feeling dried in the same spot. Is this normal?
    Please if anyone knows it help me to know more about that.

  • Short, to the point, keeps his shirt on, basic equipment, no magic markers, no ass clown sidekick making dumb ass comments. I like these videos.

  • I do believe that rings pushups and dips are amazing for developing the chest if you get your hands close to each other at the end of the rep

  • That version is the deltoid is a prime mover… the pecs become secondary…. the deltoid becomes the weak link…. that’s why he’s using a Pee-wee weight… the pecs are doing a isometric contraction!

  • This is my go to channel for quick, professional, straight to the point exercise tips. I used light DB’s (#20) instead of the cables for a few of the chest exercises and sweet baby Jesus the PUMP is INSANE. Tried the pushdowns (dip) with bands and damn it man I’M FUCKIN WRECKED, and I love it!!!!!!!!

  • If you Mexican just keep eating what your mom or abuela cooks your getting meat rice beans just keep eating them there good for you

  • Hey Jeff, I tried dumbbell pullover but with the floor and i felt a tension in my shoulder and now i feel a little bit of pain in my delta and shoulder which i don’t feel usually, is that normal or I am doing something wrong?

  • Chest exercises that you need to learn
    1, bench press (normal and incline
    2, dumbell press (normal and incline)
    3, dumbell flies (normal and incline)
    4, pullover
    5, deep dips

  • Remember folks that the last exercise does work predominantly the latissimus dorsi and to some degree the chest. However back in the golden era of bodybuilding Arnold among many others, believed this exercise helped expand his ribcage thus creating a bigger chest.

  • Great video..right to the point. Thanks. You have any ideas for the arm pit area and the side of the upper chest area. I’m having a hard time to get any muscle in that area.

  • I fucking hate dips. I can’t do those things to save my life. I understand that they’re imperative to the workout, so I guess I have to do them.

  • I tried this and other variations but my biceps gots tired sometimes faster then chest.. Thats why i wasnt big fan of cable chest exercises..

  • Just came across your channel & love all your content. At this time I only have access to cables, no free weights. Would you mind doing more videos using cables for all upper body

  • I think we could benefit a bit more if we are given a small tutorial on each workout you explain because sometimes the camera angle isn’t the best so we can’t see properly. Great video overall:D

  • Hi, I am overweight and started regular exercising around 3 months ago to lose weight. First I lost 2 kg in one month and not lost anything in 2nd month due to the same workout routine and I was also doing cardio before weight training. Then I discovered you and followed your advice and now seeing some results by doing weight training before cardio and calorie deficit as well.
    I have one question for you, as my goal is to lose weight and is this possible I would stop losing weight as I build lean muscles even I reduce body fat? Grateful if someone share some info, thank you.

  • In Schwarzenegger’s Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding he clearly states that “cross-bench pullovers” expand the ribcage but are not a chest exercise. Arnold explaina that the exercise expands the ribcage and hits the serratus and intercostals muscles.

  • 1. Steroids 2. Marry a Kennedy 3.Have a child with your maid. Those were his secrets. Maybe not for the chest. Wait were we talking about exercise? My bad, wrong convo.

  • The good old times, with their holy simplicity, sincerity, seriousness, dedication and optimum results… Besides the genetic data, of course..
