If you’re not mentally ready when you walk into the gym, take five minutes to get ready or you’ll waste your time and energy. 9 / Shorter Rest Periods Aren’t Necessarily Better. There’s a huge trend toward on taking the shortest rest between sets, but I say you may need to make them longer. Breaking the Bodybuilding Rules It certainly is not difficult to live a well-balanced life while pursuing fitness goals. Working hard in the gym may be the highlight of the day, but living a life that is fun, balanced, loose and enjoyable should come easier with less stress than the final rep.

What we did: Stack every supplement you could find in your diet, because all bodybuilding “experts” say this. The supplements would only help you. What we should do: Most supplements in the market are either ineffective or redundant; some might actually be harmful.

You need a bare minimum of supplements to get the best results. If you change your competition suit from prejudging to finals and the judges deem it not to conform to the rules you will be directed to leave the stage. No Exceptions. Competitors are not permitted to alter the fit of the posing suit by hiking it up in the back or by pulling up the sides at any time while posing on stage.

If you want your muscles to grow, you need to give them time to recover from workouts. ZMA is one of the leading supplements for overnight muscle repair and recovery. A combination of zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B-6, ZMA is best taken before you go to bed. The Only Rules You Should Break In The Gym, You Won’t Believe Number 3. As cliché as it might sound, the rules are meant to be broken. The gym isn’t one of the safest places to be in so you need to be careful about the rules you’re going to be challenging.

Mesomorphs, or naturally muscular and lean people, fare well by performing the routine in the following manner: Day 1-Workout (A), Day 2-Rest, Day 3-Workout (B), Day 4-Rest, Day 5-Workout (C), Day 6-Start cycle again with Workout (A). With this sequence, each body part is trained once every five days. 16/8 intermittent fasting is a popular diet because it’s easy to follow, flexible and sustainable in the long term. It’s also convenient, as it can cut down on the amount of time and money you.

Break the rule: Adopt a two steps forward, one step back approach to training. After going full throttle for several weeks you may need to let your body “catch up” regarding recovery. Your central nervous system will be taking a beating and may need a break as well.

Plateau-Breaking Advanced Bodybuilding Training Techniques 1) Forced Reps. Once muscular failure (the point in which performing another repetition in good form becomes impossible) is reached, have your partner gently put his hands under the bar and give only enough assistance to enable you to keep the bar moving slowly and steadily.

  • i’m new in GYM i work out at home, can anyone tell me how many day should i workout in a week? i’m skinny and my tummy is huge lol, i’m taking serious mass, it this ok?

  • Gyms are closed in my city due to covid-19.
    All I have 9s 2 dumbells with swappable weights but I’m doing what i can. I have no bench. Fuck I miss the gym

  • My classmates laughed when I told them I would burn off fat with Atomic Fat Loss, but then they saw the results. Go google Atomic Fat Loss to see their reaction. (It was epic!)

  • Wow! Why have i not made this search earlier so I could find you! Thanks for clear and good instructions. One question, isn’t it best to be warmed up and maybe a little self massaged prior to these movements, or is it ok to do it “cold”? Thanks, David, Sweden.

  • Sound Wisdom! Thank you James!

    What work out plan could I do if I only have 4 days to train M _T? its hard to hit the whole body in such a short time no and still get gains?

  • So I have a question I’ve been cracking my back and neck a lot And began To get cramps even when I wasn’t working out or doing anything so I searched up on Google if u can get cramps from cracking ur neck or back and it said yes so I tried stopping but I can’t stop cracking my neck and back and keep getting cramps, is that true and is there a way to fix that

  • Thank you for the video. Been hitting the gym hard for 4 years and got decently strong for a regular guy. But I still look/feel like garbage. Doctor tested me and I have the testosterone level of the average 80 year old woman, lol.

  • Good concise information, especially for a beginner. And nice to see a bodybuilder from here in the uk (guessing by the accent) most on YouTube are from America.

    To help with insulin resistance, it’s good to try spiking insulin 4hrs apart (or retrograde potatoes, rice etc by cooking and storing in the fridge for 24hrs at 4°c or less) white rice starch absorbing can be slowed to 3 hours.

  • Great video, you seem like a very down to earth sound lad full of information as opposed to being full of yourself. Thank you for the video

  • As a beginner, I actually use an EAA/BCAA drink during my workout just for the electrolytes. Since I lift after work, I’ve noticed a huge difference utilizing an electrolyte powder of some sort during many of my sessions.

  • My question would be, what sort of food do you eat that you don’t get tired of in a quick month, eating day after day? Chicken coming out of my ears.

  • No BS… good and condensed info. Thank you! You mentioned 4 to 6 liters of water…would you say there is such a thing as too much water? I drink when I’m thirsty and when I working that is probably more than 6L per day. I guess I’m asking is there a downside to drinking more?

  • Would love to know diet and training pattern thoughts on combing cycling and running with bodybuilding. I see more and more guys introducing this like Ross Edgely. Love how you come across would be super keen to see how you would express the cross over in a discussion.

  • I have watched quite a few of these break downs ( picking up the gym again after 10 years) but yours is very easy to follow, you’re not trying to sell something overall Great vid! Thanks -Subbed

  • Good discussion, and very informative. The background sound track is quite distracting and takes away from the video. Something a little less intrusive or more variety would make it a much easier listen! Cheers mate!

  • Big muscles, little balls and erectile dysfunction ( with steroids.) Now that’s a sacrifice. Glad none of these dedicated hulks are mine. I thought men would do anything to protect their stuff. Evidently not. These guys work so hard to get like this,, immense (no pun intended) dedication, and yet, for me as an ordinary woman I am so turned off by them. They seem muscle locked, disproportionate. Almost deformed.. But I give them credit for the dedication it must take. And, if they feel good about it, who the heck am I to cast the first stone.

  • Am I too late to try body building at 30 years old and currently obese? I’m 25st 5lbs. Would I still need to eat more than a “diet” if I want to build muscle while losing fat?

  • Very educational and sound advice for beginners. It’s so typical for bodybuilders/fitness influencers to recommend training the way that works for them this is of course understandable, but they often fail to take into account how the body reacts in the beginning when it’s new to the gym. Great video!

  • Bcaa’s are found readily in food, and if you get enough protien you should have no problem getting your bcaas. These suppliments are more of a money hole

  • Hi there, great vid! when you said 3 days per week, push / pull / legs, how much volume did you had in mind? i mean since its not that much frequency here, compared to a 5 day PPL, how much volume on big movements and accesory should we pack on these 3 days of PPL? Thank you

  • Training natty and enhanced are just two different worlds. Training almost every day with massive volume and heavy weight is the best way to start out if you’re natty. It’s basically the opposite to what you do if you’re enhanced. I think a lot of pros think it’s the same but they’ve often never trained for a long period of time natty. I can tell you, your body responds completely different to training once you hop on the sauce.

  • if you really are a beginner, forget about bro splits. train full body every time and try getting used to it. if you can train full body at least 2 times a week, you can move on to the next level and consider a bro split.

  • If i drank 4 litres of water a day I’d be pissing every 20 minutes… Im a 165pound small framed lean dude with about 2-3 years of muscle development

  • Holy shit I wasn’t making progress and I switched to 3 days a week (full body) and I couldn’t believe the immediate results. Tried it out on my own and hearing this is reassuring

  • I use olive oil,coconut oil,and avacado oil instead of butter,because I’m lactose,but it is recommended that even someone with lactose intolerant can safely consume the equivalent of a cup of milk a day,so if I should have some butter evvery now and then,then I will. I sometimes will even just take a tablespoon of coconut oil it’s got alot of benefits.

  • The first 2 minutes gets right down to the base of what is required. You can’t be stressed out, eating garbage, and lifting every day and actually progress in gains.

  • Did you know modern day bodybuilding is a deadly freak show? If you didn’t know that, well now you do… and that can save your life!

  • I was fairly fit guy for most of my adult life, but recent times completely let myself go, this vid is a great reminder of what really matters when I’m about to start get back to it, as opposed to so much conflicting and convoluted information over the internet.

  • The diet you described for a beginner was: 50 grams of carbs x4, 30 grams of protein x 4 and some olive oil. That’s literally around 1400 calories..

  • This isn’t good advice for beginners.. It’s GREAT advice!!! ������ So many great tips in one video no bullshit, just things that actually work and people can apply straight away! ��

    You did such a great job with this video man! ✌️ Much respect for doing this! ��

  • Who the hell wants a body like that, probably gonna die soon, and no use in older ages. just useless mass and weight, 99% of then are on some substance not natural, these types of bodies are not worth your life, strive to be fit not a monster

  • Good stuff. Im 38 now, struggling to put on muscle like I used to,, often feel bloated even when I dont eat too much,, any advice?

  • 18:20 Let me help you here. You’re touching on something alot of people don’t take into consideration when you talk about “You’re gonna feel the difficulty because you wouldn’t have recovered from the previous training session.” is the nervous stress that takes longer to recover than soft tissue stress. Such as legs and back, the CNS (Central Nervous System) needs to recover from the high stresses. When you overload the Nervous System, and it cant recover, you get injuries and lack of focus…
    But your information is spot on and most definitely applicable to amateurs and pros….

  • Good advice but that diet shit is bollocks haha. How can you get anything done when you are eating 4 time a day lol. Whatever works for you I guess lol.

  • One of the VERY BEST TRUE Informative video on the NET, all beginners need this as the AIR they breath. Thank you a lot, watching you ever since. Regards and best of luck always.

  • Question about old school training: The bodybuilding diet was very high in protein and low in carbs. How were they able to gain muscle with hardly any carbs?

  • Sooooooo if your diabetic and carbs are a no-no, what should you replace the carbs with?? Cause 70g of carbs will shoot your sugar level pretty high

  • This is an awesome informative video, a real breakdown on meals (what to eat or specific protein choices ) would be awesome and a little deeper into preferred exercises, as in you stated 6 per day, so on a push day is that 2 chest, 2 shoulders, and two tri’s? or? Thanks for the great channel!

  • Did you get relief from any of these? Leave me a comment below! The neck and upper back mobilizations are my favorite. Thanks for watching!

  • Hi doctor I have bone at my neck not big a small bone whenver I turn my neck left or right a crack sound occur not very loud one is that bone a bad symbol or will that grow

  • this actually kinda feels good didnt get any cracks and pops though the one when you put your right leg on the left leg and your right hand on it it was cool tho defenitly desrved a like

  • Arrived on this video out of hope but your first manipulation for the neck has literally given me instantaneous relief for my chronic tension headaches that have been plaguing my life for the past two years… I know it’s bound to return but the feeling of knowing there’s something I can do that works… absolutely priceless!
    Thank you so so much.

  • My neck had been hurting BAD for 5 months now. Ive been in quarantine so I cant get a chiropractor. Ive popped my neck every once and a while (Usually by a chiropractor) and I crack my joints regularly. But every time I try to relieve pressure from my neck its literally bringing me to tears. It hurts so much and im used to this kind of stuff because I crack joints. I literally have been binge watching videos trying to do anything about this and nothing it helping

  • Fellow golfer, actually what brought me to your vid. A buddy changed my swing and my back has not been the same since. My swing may be better,but now I cannot use it. Couldn’t even do the leg over stretch. ��
    Could you do a vid on more work us older golfers can do? thanks.

  • As soon as he talked about not training too much and to be sure to rest and recuperate sufficiently, I knew he knew his shit. I’m 57 and have trained for 45 years. One thing I’ve learned is growth occurs outside the gym. Diet is imperative as are rest and recuperation. I like this dude a lot. Also, functional calories are key to building muscle and not putting on too much fat.

  • I LOVE your videos.. great contentuseful.. and just wonderful information that I can USE!!! (and I”m OLDso good instructions are VALUABLE).

  • im only working out for 2 months. Im only 15, i dont smoke, i dont drink, like most of my friends, I just started, but i can say i love the gym, i go every day and my biggest motivation is Arnie. I just love him, he is an amazing person, he is an legend, thank you for uploading this video, this keeps me pumped up and when i’m i feel im going to give up, i think of his words. No pain, No gain for sure..

  • I was expecting it to say not taking enough drugs to die before 40. I’m serious. It’s a problem. These pro shows should have some set of standards that don’t reward 340 lb mass monsters bc then ppl feel the need to get there to even compete. Being anywhere close to 300 lb,plus bad cholesterol and high b.p from juice is killing these guys. It’s messed up. I know they aren’t forced but they are kind of used by the business to draw crowds and basically are profiting off ppl doing things that will prematurely kill them. If you look at the Arnie days lots of those guys are still old and alive. Why? Cause they maybe took some dbol. That’s it. Not 5k a week of whatever plus hghand insulin.its complete insanity.
    Besides that this is the first bodybuilder I’ve ever heard talk that I liked. Normally narcissistic d bags compensating for lack something good in there life. I made it to 300 lbs and it’s easy to slip into body dysmorphia. you feel small after being that big. You are the biggest person everywhere you go but you can’t see it.This guy seems normal. Wish there was more like him. Try to spend more time focus on maybe health aspect like this instead of drug coctails who can hit 400 lbs in off season. I dunno I was nowhere near a pro and easily fell into the ‘get as big as possible” trap. Once you are big you get a lot of attention. You feel good. Then you come off and are still bigger than average person, but in your eyes you are super small, a shadow of your former self. I’m 220 at 6’2 and doctor still says I’m overweight? Seems being like a stick is best for heart and blood pressure but being big, having my that, and then not is freaking traumatic. These guys are in a tough business and I normally don’t like them but I have to admit this guy changes my mind and a little. I hope he reads this and knows he’s doing a good thing for the sport.
    Also great that mentions diet. Of you don’t mind a little fat you can get huge by eating a lot and lifting heavy. I ate like a pig, lifted, got big..off season sloppy, but I was usually the biggest person by far everywhere I went for years. That’s hard to let go of. But I have a kid and am 50 and seeing my daughter grow is more important than being big. Still hard to let go of.

  • Do you hsve anything for the back of the neck? Im experiencing EXTREME neck pain. It’s so bad, and when I lay down it gets 100x worse. I’ve gotten less than 3 hours of sleep in the last 2 days because of it. I’m desperate

  • I suffer with serious joint displacement that has left me wheelchair bound for the last 7 years, and sadly, will for the rest of my life, I have had 3 years of intense physio, some private, and some NHS (I’m UK based) and all their advice was good, but, I found out that the tension builds up so bad in my spine, it blocks the nerve channels, sometimes leaving me temporarily paralysed in my legs.

    I’ve been on strong pain killers (oxycontin) for 5 years, which makes it bearable, but the side affects make it worse.

    I tried your video, as having a massive flare up that left me hospitalised for 10 days, and wow.

    You sir, are a god, this single video has helped me more than 3 years of physio.

    I cannot thank you enough.

  • I actually give up. I’ve been trying to crack my back and neck for a year and I’ve tried every stretch and position and it doesn’t work. I’m always in pain and I’m lost for what to do.

  • Its kinda bullshit when you hear shit like: I dont need as many rest days because I eat a lot, I sleep a lot, i have a really good “hold on things”. This is so counter-productive to this videos purpose. A guy off the streets is going to follow your advice because he eats a lot of calories and sleeps a lot, without knowing that what you have a hold on is test, npp, etc… that helps you recover multiples quicker. Guy seemed nice, loved him at first, but theres nothing worse than a fake ass fuck that could be ruining someone elses training because hes to big a cunt to be honest.

  • You say that you won’t feel a boost of energy from BCAAs. From what I have learned, taht is incorrect. BCAAs have only 3 of the Essential Amino Acids and all 8 EAAs are needed for protein synthesis. When you do not have all 8 of the EAAs in your system simultaneously, your body will convert Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine into sugars, fuel, or waste, and sugars and fuel will give you a boost. So, instead of BCAAs, you’re better off eating a piece of fruit.

  • I feel nauseous if i drink a lot of water and then end up not eating enough calories at throughout the day. What can i do about it?

  • So can I take some bcaas and eaas after taking some preworkout? Or is that too much caffeine? Should I only drink one of them at a time?

  • I need a reply on this.i’m Fasting to lose weight i eat once a day at 6 (Meat grain and greens) with a plant based protein powder shake with water, about 7 i workout then take GNC’s Performance pro essential amino acids. Im down from 190 to 171. But what should i do when i get to 160 and want to start packing on muscle

  • I have a question. I take bcaas with creatine after a workout and then eat food with protein and calories, and it has been working for me. But i’d like to know if it’s a better option to take bcaas before/during my workout, and then take a protein shake or eat food after?

  • Please stop having your models wear BB clothing that is not available… I keep seeing great gear and NOT finding it on your website.

  • Leucine and other BCAAs themselves wont do anything. You need all essential aminos in order to build muscle. Stop wasting your money on them! You already get them in your food and shakes.

  • You are one of my best loved YouTubers and I desire to make a tribute video to your channel. Please let me know if that is ok with you. My YouTube channel has a lot of motivational and inspirational content because my passion is to share the best personal development hacks. I love your content and would like to give it some extra publicity. Hope to hear from you!

  • People saying he did roids are the people who Sit around blaming others for their misfortune… Regardless of roids do you know how hard you have to work to get the physique he had roids don’t discipline you and wake you up at the crack of dawn to start grinding

  • His breed are dying off for the ‘mass monsters’ of today sure like anything they are always gunna get bigger trying to better each other but the aesthetics has almost disappeared now which is a sad matter

  • i love when the background music becomes louder than his voice and you can’t hear what he’s saying. I’d rather hear the loud background music instead, yes.

  • I wish I had a mentor, teacher, friend or dad like that:'(
    Yeah, wel I still got my faith in myself, my brothers, sisters and all these Great Titans. LOVE YOU ARNOLD YOU ARE A LIVING LEGEND!

  • The main reason I came here is just to hear him saying: ” Yes, you can”
    I try to say that to my self everyday, each day and most of the time I do it in the bad days, the HARD DAYS. 

    I am like soo deep in big trouble. Yet, I try to tell you myself “Yes, I can”.
    No matter what “Yes, I can”.

  • To be fair, I never liked Arnold for his mindless roles in movies. This speech changed my opinion, hard work is a highway to success!

  • What is steel compared to the hand that wields it? Look at the strength of your body, the desire in your heart. I give you this…

  • H6x Muscle Monster is GAY! and a waste of time and money, as well as the rest of the bullshit supplements you people advertise on these videos!

  • That is what a non-lifter says. That is what a person who is doing something they hate says. That is what a person who has never worked hard says.

  • Ive used the chair technique since highschool many years ago. The school desk were the best. Arms in front pushing with your arms and back popped every time

  • thats because the people who edit these videos are to busy in the gym to be bothered by someone who is nit-picky about the editing. Watch it. Listen to it. And live it. Gym time bye.

  • it all depends on how hard you work in the gym, if you’re feeling sore after 5 days of working out take the next 1-2 days off, but if your “tummy” is huge you shouldn’t be taking mass gainer, just eat healthier, but in large amounts.

  • Astounding gentleman who is dedicated to his very difficult craft.Many athletes have to work at other,sometimes very physical,jobs and are disheartened at their progress due to massive time constraints.Nice to see a bit of honesty in this regard.

  • Dude i would consider every 2nd cause your muscels are still repairing and growing so within the spare day eat protein then work your ass off when you workout then rest a day then so on

  • Whenever your on youtube complaining about shitty editing, someone out there is working hard making a great video with no annoying audio levels and somone is winning just remember that

  • This guy is giving such bad nutrition advice with such confidence. Calculate your calories by your metabolic rate/activity level. This is one way of determine you calorie intake.

  • Hi there, have you seen Atomic Max Muscle? (just Google it) You will learn about the crimes we commit against our bodies. With Atomic Max Muscle, you will discover how to build muscle quickly.

  • So basically what your getting at is that Evolution is that lazy person in the group project that only does the bare minimum to pass ��

  • beginners usually waste their money because they dont know what to take. dont buy any mass gainers or other shit, thats a waste of money, The key is to eat a lot! your not going to get big just from taking supplements. Make a schedule for yourself, eat 5-6 times a day. 500-600 calories a meal. work out every day, stay motivated, and eat! eaaaaaaaaaattttttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • what the fuck man. why the hell everysingle one of these speeches are ruined by shitty editing, the audio levels are all over the place. So goddamn distracting.

  • Nice, its refreshing to here someone down to earth and inspiring w a realistic view on things and setting a realistic basic fundamental mindset.


  • No question about it.. I hate when people throw the whole steroid thing out there.. They don’t realize the amount of dedication and determination he had to be the best at what he did. Those people have never broken a sweat in their life, they’d rather chalk his hard work up to something inside of a needle or pill and say that if they did the drugs he did, they would have accomplished the same things, too. Little do they know it was never a drug that got him what he had, it was his heart.

  • What are you winning mel please tell me because I’m baffled…what is it that your winning? A false sense of security or future?
    What is it…? You keep believing ur happy when u know ur not, parade muscle man all around because u think and believe in ur mind that he makes you better then you really are? He lifts ur self-esteem….honey when a man really loves you, people notice..in the end with your seeded belief that some conceded wannabe Arnold planted in your head when u had nobody with the help of drugs just as you did me…
    In end ur gonna hit a brick wall and wonder were I am?
    Ya I’ll answer the phone or text because I love you….
    The lost time will always linger over our heads and I will never say I told you so because I respect you…

  • hello could you guys please just take one second to check RobStubbsPT channel he’s got great workout vids and vids on counting macrosfor a bulk and getting shreded. It would be greatly appreciated

  • I watched his movies countless times with my father growing up. From a small village in Austria, he came to America and became the best bodybuilder in the world, Hollywood star and cultural icon, governor of California, and married JFK’s niece. He is my hero and always will be. I hope to meet him at least once in my life.

  • The only one rule I have been struggling is sleep faster…
    Other than that, I was an average student in Hungary, now the table is turned!
    KIDS!!! Don’t ever listen to the people around you, if you want to be outstanding then be that!!! Dont be afraid to be different!!! Then dont have friends! Leave them, if you scratch with the chickens you will never fly with the eagles!!!

  • Sir you are Awesome. I am your Fan. I am always follow you Right Now I am started my Channel after watching your motivation video.Thank you God bless Like You.


  • One of the first videos I watched on YouTube. My Year 8 biology teacher showed this to me just before our exams and I was blown away. This video will always be special to me

    0:49 Rule 2: Break the Rules
    1:26 Rule 3: Don’t be afraid to fail
    1:58 Rule 4: Don’t listen to naysayers
    2:32 Rule 5: Work your butt off

  • This speeches are great to listen but hard to implement in real life!!!!
    And if you can do it you would be Arnold or bill gates for sure(may be)

  • Don’t cut sleep down to 6 hours. It will reduce your mental performance, mental/physical recovery, and it’s been shown that sleeping 6 hours or less is associated with premature death. IF ANYTHING, cut down all the other crap, like social media, gaming, watching movies, etc. In today’s world there are so many distractions, cut them out. Stay focused.

  • Rule number two is the most important one in my opinion. You could have all the potential in the world, but if you do not go out of your way and break some rules in order to be seen, you will never get out of that place.

  • One thing you noticed! No dick what so ever. I can’t trade one for another. Never I have more fun with my cock! Lol sorry guy’s.

  • Comes at a price in the immediate future. What price, negative returns, health issues in mid-life or sooner, just a matter of time…..

  • How do you say God is the biggest and strongest there is no one bigger stronger than him he created you believe it or not that’s your choice Choose Wisely

  • Awesome explination. You had defiantly put in you time with studying those subject. This from a person who has loads of A & P background from 3 separate programs. Great job and Al’so great Images and videos to show as well.

  • Now in bodybuilding women use more steroids than men. So these men compared to the female steroidbuilders now,these men are nothing.

  • How does one, be happy looking like this??? Its total mutelation of yourself. What gets me is that they go through alot of trouble to look this warped

  • Wow haven’t seen Vic Richards in a long time. I remember in the 90s he was this mass monster ghost. He looks small compared to Dorian, Ronnie, and latter.

  • Were these vids captured BEFORE they snapped the neck of anyone in the gym getting in their view of the mirror??

    No machines were spared from damage during the filming of this video montage. ��

  • Thank you very much man. I got into working out in a dedicated serious way about 3 months ago and I have been searching out info and feeling rather lost since I started. I’ve learned abit but I’ve also got the run around on so many things that some of it I’m pretty much just back to guess work. This single video was exactly what I have been looking for and I appreciate you putting it out so much. Thanks

  • Hi everyone! Thanks for all the comments and thumbs up on this video. What part of the video was an aha moment for you? You might now be able to handle a quiz on the anatomy of the liver. It might be easier than a shot to the liver. Check it out here: https://khub.me/22idh Good luck!

  • I was sparring with my friend/coach and he was telling me “alright we’re going to work body shots now, so prep your mind” a minute in was doing good with blocks and then my elbow twitched funny and his punch slipped and hit me with a liver shot…. first time I’d ever experienced that. My mind was telling my body we need air, but my body was like fxxx you bro I’m trying to recover here, give me a minute to process what just happened. All it Takes is 1 liver shot to become aware of those punches

  • lol god.. because god put him here and made him who he is.
    it wasn’t his parents who gave birth to him, nor he himself who did ALL that fucking work. it was god

  • Under tense conditions with adrenaline pumping, I have managed to continue fighting as normal even after receiving groin strikes. But the liver, man it literally shuts you down even.

  • I fainted while watching this video… Lmao. Like I really did, I am so queezy about pain and injuries and hearing that the liver is this vulnerable made me straight up pass out lmao

  • What do yoy do when what makes yoh happy is thinking about you not being alive. I dont want to be liked. I just wish i wasnt here.

  • I saw this video time ago and got into a fight at my school, then I see this in my recommended. Thank you, I could’ve been clapped

  • there is a very rare condition known as situs inversus, where one to several of your organs are reversed on the other side of your torso.

    so statistically theirs probably several boxers or mma fighters who are basically immune to liver shots cuz their opponent always hits the wrong side

  • 5:44 that wasnt a powerful liver shot. he was faking the injury so he could counter when he sees the charge. IF YOU TAKE A HEAVY LIVER SHOT THERE IS NO COMING BACK. E. V. E. R. unless you get a transplant

  • I was hit with a liver shot and it was the sorest pain ever it was in boxing the final of Smithfield box cup I was facing a Ukraine champion but I got up from it witch was very hard and won the fight 3/2

  • I remeber once in self defence class, i was hit by a librr punch and immediately collapsed with an immense amount of pain and the wind knocked out of my sails. I couldn’t control my breathing and a warm feeling all over my body soon followed that. Note to self, next time land that punch first.

  • This is exactly why I study human anatomy, not to be a medical professional, but for martial arts reasons. I highly recommend studying the most sensitive parts of the body.

  • Martin ford does not belong with these giants of bodybuilding get him out it’s a very bad example of a pro bodybuilder he’s a amateur at best

  • I wonder why they don’t let you rest after taking a liver shot. The referee will let you recover after taking a shot to the groin (if you’re male). Why do they do that for one but not the other? It seems like a very similar situation.

  • One time when I was in 4th grade, one of my friends accidentally kicked me in the liver with a soccer ball. I felt a very hard squeeze and my hearing was just gone, my legs were weak and my bones hurt. But only for a moment, but i was okay

  • Well being hit in the liver feels like your about to throw up or its like having a massive stomachache. You lose your mind and u will start to drool. My experience

  • is it reasonably possible to get punched a few times in the upper Abs front and center just under the breast bone just under the ribs where the top of the stomach is but these few punches damages the liver resulting in a burning nose your stomach followed by constant heartburn?
    i’m thinking since the stomach is under the liver, getting pinched front and center and the liver being out front, the punch would hurt the liver and big the stomach???
    could this damage cause serious digestive problems?

  • I had to liv er….coz she was a bitch.
    Yah true…i feel like i cant breath when i get punched on my liver..i rather get rocked then get punched on the liver…very uncomfortable feeling.
    (Ahhhh We human
    ME ME ME
    one punch On the liver and your down like a potato.

  • That shit will leave you feeling like a knife is stuck in your liver for weeks.
    You go weak and sometimes randomly lose coordination until it heals.
    Crazy ass pain but you get stronger.
