  • Hi David, Thanks for posting this. I’ve been pretty much doing all you suggest for about 3 months now, but haven’t made any significant gains. Using your calarie formula I’m now thinking I haven’t taken on enough calories; 2200-2400 instead of your calculated 2500-2800. My problem is, I struggle to eat even 2200 calaries without feeling bloated or sick.

  • I only started working out in proper form. Or as a reigemi g since September. I had lifted weights beforebut not on a strict routine but more of a once a while thing will that affect my lean muscle mass gains?

  • I’ve got a question for you guys, I’ve been working out for 2 years and haven’t really gotten to the weight that I desire (72kg I’m at 57kg at the moment) and I’ve always worked out then ate. Is that bad? I want to know if eating before working out is better or not.

  • If you wish to shed weight, you should check out Custokebon Secrets on the google search engine. They will help you get the body you need.

  • Thanks tanner, I’ve put some size on my arms and shoulders following your vids, and your reminders to progressive overload have helped me lift heavier in faster times than i was before at a steady weight. Keep up the great work!

  • I’m 100% vegan, and I watch your dumbbell workout videos and implement an upper and lower body workout 3 days a week. It did not take much time at all to see results. I love your videos.

  • Guys. lost crazy amounts of weight does not need to be hard (I used to think it did). I will give you some tips right now. Get a popular lose weight methods called Custokebon Secrets (search on google). Thanks to it I’ve lost lots of weight. I shouldn’t even be speaking about it cause I don’t want lots of other guys out there running the same game but whatever. I’m just in a great mood right now so I will share the wealth haha.

  • Hey man! I am currently 17 and weight about 150lbs (skinnyish dude) my goal is to gain muscle all around while still staying relatively slim. I started lifting in late May and follow a Push-Pull-Legs plan. I am currently eating around 3500 calories a day (and just barely gaining weight off that). I have watched a bunch of your other videos “How to grow arms” etc and subscribed. Is there any advice you can give me to gradually build a physique, or is consistency really the key? I’m only really going for an “athletic” build to were I look like an active, healthy, sexy human being:) Keep up great work! 😉

  • Rings are great for exposing weaknesses, however the instability means progressing will be more difficult. In a more stable dip setup where you are able to slap on more weight, you will be able to build more muscle simple because of the added stability.

  • i have a question, is good to do more australian pullups or rows on rings than normal pullups? bcs i can feel better my back on australian pullups than on normal pullups on bar

  • I’ve got a bit fat on me already just in my chest and belly slightly. I’m dieting, doing cardio, and lifting 5 days a week. If I want to gain more muscle but lose that bit of fat what should I do? I don’t want to enter a caloric surplus if there’s a risk of gaining fat back? Any tips?

  • If i want to replace the squat (i dont have access to a bar), what is a good replacement? Thinking about mountainbike or maybe running

  • Do you dudes track your calories while buffing or cutting? I’m on a hefty Diet right now. And the thing that boggles me the most is not the amount of food, which is really small, but the tracking. But if I don’t track I would most defenetly overeat. Still looking for a hack or something to circumpass that^^

  • I was just telling my daughter I wish we had some parallel bars and then I took a break from my workout and found this video. Now I am getting rings instead. I am 46 and live in NorCal. Small world!

  • I agree with chasing performance over aesthetics. I never was much of a weight lifter cause it just simply bored me. I wish I had learned about the range of calisthenics when I was in my early twenties.
    Growing up, my schools’ gym classes considered calisthenics to just be jumping jacks and pushups… and no guidance on working up to pushups via incline ones. Ugh.

  • You just stopped ejaculating, doing drugs consuming corpses and having vices and sins.

    instead you took that moment to built the muscle so.
    In resume, you are only addressing the effect not the cause but more important, go find your propose, because without propose you will have doubt
    And choice and doubt don’t go together.
    Everything begins by choice.

  • Its still surprise me just how many people have no clue about Custokebon Secrets even though lots of people with it. Thanks to my mate who told me about it. I have lost crazy amounts of weight.

  • Do a nutritional video, I am want to eat way more to gain muscle, but I am scared i will get some fat. I am ripped so any fat looks like alot to me. Any tips to gain muscle/weight without gaining fat.

  • if you really only want to build muscle then train with weights. sure if you like to train with rings thats one thing. its fun and theres nothing wrong with that. but don’t try to sell it as if it is THE best method to build muscle. its not ideal at all.

  • The challenge will come as time goes by.

    Being super fit is easy at 30. Add another 30 years; let’s revisit things.

    By all means for the habits at 30. Stick with it as long as you can.

    Life happens.

  • I read lots of superb reviews on the net about how Custokebon Secrets (just google search it) will help you lost a ton of weight. Has anyone tried this popular diet plan program?

  • Hey, what are some home workouts that work for gaining muscles??… I weigh around 125 to 127 & I’m tired of people saying that I’m to skinny, what is the first step that I should take to gain some muscle?

  • So ive been doing 100 pushups, squats, curls, and calf raises and steady going up to 200. Does this actually work strength wise for the muscles that im trying to work?

  • 1 tip for anyone thats skinny or skinny fat dont get shredded when your skinny bulk up first for atleast 10-15 months and than go to the gym and workout

  • “Dont go to the gym right after a meal as that could cause upset stomach issues” 10 seconds later “alright its time for me to go to the gym cause as you know i JUST ATE” ������

  • Disappointed that you didn’t have a conversation with the eggs before you ate them Brandon… 😉 =)

    Breakfast, second breakfast… you didn’t mention elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner, and supper? =) (Sorry you’ve probably already been inundated by Hobbit references after using the term ‘second breakfast’.)

  • can you do a new vid about every thing a 16 year old should know about dieting and workout for teens??? plz plz you are my hero ������

  • I would like to know how you calculate your macros. Do you follow any formula or just go by the feel. What do you eat. Or any supplement that you take. I m into bodybuilding but I always feel that calisthenics is the way I would like to train my body forever.

  • Very happy I found this channel i get way bigger working out on the street hopefully no one goes to jail but the state food in Massachusetts west Boylston jail is just human and dog meat made into a kinda bologna jello everyone calls it dickmeat true story very gross that would bring you from buff dude to sick dude fast lol

  • Do natural popular weight loss diet plan like Custokebon Secrets really work and if so, how effective are they? I’ve heard many awesome things about this popular weight loss methods.

  • Do you have anymore information about ring work? Would love to know about your sources for getting started. This is something I’ve been really really wanting to do for a long time (I know ill get into it). I’m doing more functional movements at the moment to build a solid foundation of strength, and working off my foundation from my baseline moving forward towards strong lifts and then potentially rings in the future. Thanks for your advise and help in advanced!

  • Skinny guys just have to sit around and do nothing, drink lots of soda and go to buffets. That’s how they will easily put on weight…

  • Please when you go to the gym next time and the guy next to you does this weird back training please tell him how to row. This one hurts just by watching.

  • It’s was getting me nauseous just watching you make all that food. Let alone eat it. I’m trying to gain weight. I’m trying to put on some more muscle. My stomach just isn’t used to eating this much. This is going to take some time.

  • When you are delusional and you think you can put on 15 LBS of muscle after you have been training for years and years and are already big ��

  • Is this another fitness guy on roids making money by convincing other people that they can just be like him, only without the roids?


  • As Greg doucette would say, you can not put on 15 pounds of muscle in that amount of time, it’s not realistic. What people really think is actually just half fat and water

  • There seems to be a lot of evidence that working out fasted, and not eating for several hours post workout is better than eating before and after working out, due to the high levels of hgh when you’re fasted and have no insulin in the bloodstream.

  • The more I watch this dude, the more I believe that he’ll make one hell of a candidate for the role of Wolverine. Ofcourse, that won’t happen anytime soon because we all know that Hollywood nowadays seem to be run by gay sjw aholes. Anyways, this guy is definitely is an inspiration for me…

  • My skinny friend is obsessed with saying dirty bulk is best and only way, he says every vid says do it, proving him wrong is such a damn challenge

  • On a bulk I weigh in every hour. Ain’t taking no chances. If I piss or crap out 500g worth of weight I replace it immediately. Once a week…… Amateur

  • soo let me get this strait you put on 10 pounds of “muscle” in 6 months as a trained and conditioned adult male this wasn’t because you lost a bunch of muscle and are regaining it. or anything like that? you’re an individual who hasn’t lost that 10 pounds and are just rebuilding previously built muscle and you’re not on… ya know….Mexican supplements. my apologies for my skepticism but you are obviously conditioned so there are a bunch of factors that interest me

  • Im sorry but this is straight up bullshit.You can’t put 15 pounds of muscle in your frame because you are near your genetic limit.Especially in this short amount of time.

  • Very inspiring. Except I would definitely not want to look out my window and see my neighbor doing his exercises mostly naked in the driveway everyday. Little bit of a douche level there. Toodles

  • what i dont understand is if im fat and need to lose weight, but want to build muscle, do i still eat in a calorie surplus to do that? Will I still lose fat? Or do i have to lose my fat first and do only cardio before trying to put on muscle

  • Hey dudes! My winter bulk has been underway for some time now. What’s the secret to size? Consistency, dedication and food, food, food. Seriously if you’re not a fan of eating then in order to pack on size you’re going to have to become one. Either that or just stuff it down and find a happy place. We believe in you. Hope you enjoy the vid! -Brandon

  • Is this natural? Or with steroids? Genuinly want to know, not discrediting any gains with “assistance” it all takes hard work regardless, theres just generally no transparency on the matter of performance enhancement with most of these sorts of channels when what I really want to learn is what’s achievable for the average bloke. Watched a few of these videos like these dudes/ and dad

  • Will this work for a sixteen year old girl? I’m trying to bulk up like the rest of the guys. I’m going to join the Marines when I get my bachelor’s degree, and I want to be able to pass the men’s requirements at above average

  • Hmmm….so general knowledge, common sense…also, the term “get big quickly” should be banned…even on PEDs size gain isnt “overnight”…

  • Might be worth adding deadlifts or something to make sure you keep your hamstring strength in proportion to your quad strength, otherwise you risk knee problems down the line

  • I’m 14 and 95 pounds with 2% bmi My doctors keep telling me I’m am normal I have never lost any weight but I have trouble gaining weight and muscle Just look at me I am a living skeleton I go to the gym 3-4 day’s a week I gain strength but not muscle What do I do?

  • Should someone who is underweight and wants to bulk up worry about saturated fat? It seems like in order to increase calories I go way beyond the recommended amounts for the day.

  • I started working out about a year ago steady and I weighed legit 115 pounds. Now I’m pushing 150, which doesn’t sound like a lot but it took a lot of work for me to get there. Your videos help so much. Thank you

  • Jesus is coming back soon. Repent from your sins, truly follow Jesus, and do the Lord’s will which is lead others to Jesus. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and the only way to Heaven. Follow Jesus, the Black Jesus, the real Jesus, who is the one true God who came in the flesh to the Earth to die for our sins to be washed away so we can make it to Heaven cause we are all sinners and we all fall short of his glory and we need. Only thru him can we saved. Jesus wants us to have a deep relationship with him and obey his commandments the best we can. Jesus came to save all of us. And Jesus commanded us to Love everybody cause we are all his children no matter what race U are. Satan wants God’s people to be divided and hate each other cause he knows that if U hate others it destroys your relationship with Jesus. Dont let this world destroy your soul. This Earth is wicked and full of evil and we are the last days. The Devil worshipping Government is lying about the so called Coronavirus. Its really the spirit of death sent by God to the Earth to kill wicked people who dont wanna change and also whoever else he wants to take off this Earth. The Angel of death touches who God tells it to and it makes the person sick until they die. The government is jus taking what God is doing and twisting it to make it seem like something else to benefit them and get more control over U. The sickness is not contagious. They want U to be in fear so when U got a regular cold or flu or any other sickness U can run to the hospitals and their evil witch doctors can diagnose U with Coronavirus and inject U with poison and kill U as a blood sacrifice to Satan. The spirit of fear is not a spirit of God. If U are truly saved by Jesus by repenting from your sins, truly following Jesus, having a deep relationship, and doing the Lord’s will which is leading others to Jesus then U are covered in the blood of Jesus and the spirit of death cant touch U. Tribulation has started. This is the beginning of the end. God is gonna keep sending plagues to the Earth. Jesus is coming back soon but we got alot to go thru before he comes back. The evil government wants to make us slaves, control us and try to kill us all eventually. They are against us. They are creating a One World Government and will usher in the AntiChrist to be the king of it. They will try to get people to take the mark of the beast 666 chip in your hand to be able to buy or sell anything. If U take it then U will automatically go to Hell when U die. The AntiChrist will pretend to be Jesus and many will brainwashed into following the AntiChrist. And the AntiChrist will be trying to kill followers of Jesus. And Jesus will come back to kill the AntiChrist and all of his followers. And then Jesus true followers and will reign with Jesus a thousand years until Jesus destroys Satan for good throwing him in the lake of fire in Hell. And then Jesus will create the new Heaven on Earth where we will be for eternity. Dont follow the world follow Jesus.
