    Thank you brother. You look awesome. Keep up the incredible work. Subbed for life!!

  • I was skeptic about NextLevelDiet because I thought that I would have to eat only broccoli to lose weight. I am eating only food I like and still losing weight.

  • Steroids before or after workout? Lol just kidding, i just hope you don’t tell new guys at the gym your body’s natural because they will believe they can achieve it just by eating and sleeping well wich is clearly not the case haha, and the title is kind of missleading, not everyone has a bench at home

  • You’re even more of a beast than I had previously thought.
    I tried having a conversation during my last chest workout, and it totally threw me off.
    I ran out of gas prematurely.
    Then I thought…sadik makes this look easy ��

  • Thanks for this exercise ، I have a question, I can’t do push-ups at all even if I’m on my knees I can’t so is there any easy version?

  • I must say this dude Mike has the best toned physique, not too huge like those guys who looks like on steroids or bouncers. This is exactly the body I want.
