  • My trimmer tried to kill me once, so I show it my 15-lbs wood splitting maul. Haven’t had a problem since. Also, I cut my own hair now.

  • Just tried this…fantastic workout, nice and light weights but feelin the burn. Even my dodgy shoulder held up….thanks Ryan ����

  • yeah it will give you a crazy pump but my question is by doing this much of reps, is it possible that the muscle which is already there getting burned and small

  • Who disliked this????? Amazing demonstration Jeff. As someone who did nothing but sit on their ass through adolescence, videos like this are very needed. These muscles are very underdeveloped, and every day you teach me ways to grow them safely

  • Loving the dumbbell videos Ryan. Would love to see you take on how to use just dumbbells and a flat/incline/decline bench for overall growth because that’s the only equipment I have. Well, that and walls. I like your wall stuff. Cheers.

  • I have been unlocking most of my muscles with many of these moves in just a couple weeks. I have a routine based on Ryan´s
    exercises and a routine based on classic exercises, also followed his protein advice, works wonders.

  • I’m a bit concerned with the side raises @ 2:27 but only with hand position. When you finish with your pinky higher than your thumb, you are doing a “pitcher pour” and on a front delt raise, it WILL over time, impinge the bicep tendon. You MAY get away with it on the side raise, but then again, you may not. So I would ALWAYS finish with your thumbs higher than your pinkies just to be on the safe side

  • I appreciated you tips I have been doing I felt it, the change.. I would more appreciation good supplement recommendation yaa without supplement you can’t have great body give us tips pls pls..I would be delighted if you openly tell us supplement

  • On this 5 completed.excellent pump and burn.i am going to be a super human as well.thanks to the superhuman. Troy shred

  • judging by the face you make when you finally dump in a set i am going to shit my guts out failure as intended no wonder ive been blowing up in ways i never thought possible. papa didn’t raise no bitch.

  • If you don’t know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, now is the day of salvation. While it is said, “To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation (Hebrews 3:15).” “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me (Revelation 3:20).
    Ask Him for forgiveness and repent (turn away from; change) of all your sins. For in John 6:37, Jesus says, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38) and seek Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4) (Acts 2:1-4). Now is the time. Tomorrow is promised to no man.

    Isaiah 55:6-9:
    “6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

    7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

    8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

    9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

    May the Lord bless you

  • Hello i have pain in my shoulder if i play fortnite for more then 1 hour my keyboard is at 90 degrees do you know what i can do to play without getting pain? And can it ever go away?

  • Just subbed because you are concise. I’m sick of all these fitness videos on YouTube being 12-14mins long when they only need to be 4-5mins. Finally! Thank you.

  • Hey Richard, I am very happy to see again exercises from you in the classic sense of GYM workouts ��
    Otherwise the video is great again, music and editing are perfect!
    BTW You looks good ����

  • Leave your ego at home on shoulder day! I’m using some seriously light dumbbells here and getting destroyed. Love it, in a weird sick way.

  • Welp. I got pumped and smoked with 10-15 lb dumbbells. Gonna hit some mid and lower traps and call er’ a shoulder day. Thank you, good Sir.

  • Hey Ryan, i would love to see you do a series on resistance bands exercises for those of us who are too scared to go to a gym now and don’t have dumbbells. Love your content man.

  • Your short vids are perfect to grab some info in the gym. I have pulled up your vids in the middle of a workout and not lost time or the pump. Thank you!

  • Could you do mid/lower trap focused cable exercises video please? Also, your methodology with focusing on the importance of the contraction and doing whatever it takes to achieve it, is never given enough credit. Thank you for finally making it known as the crux for unlocking gains; it’s changed my entire bodybuilding lifestyle only for the better. I fucking love working out now!

  • thanks girl, I learn more techniques in lifting by watching female bodybuilders like you than i do with most men who do the lame repetitive common overused useless techniques.

  • Did a killer shoulder workout a few days ago and now my left shoulder hurts when i internally rotate it over my body (past the neck line)

  • Just started today. I’m older but am a five to six days a week veteran and this whooped my behind. I can imagine what a month from now will be like!!����

  • only Positive comments here i love it,, thanks for the humor Ryan and Motivation here on the out door Gym on the Farm some where in North Ontario Canada… Arch Enemy, The World Is Yours.

  • My rear delts seem to be super weird because they are smaller yet they seem to be able to handle more weight and reps than my other delts. I have no clue why, but I doubt that is normal.

  • Hello! I have pain, when my arm across the chest and my shoulder is internally rotated, from 5 months and when i stop train chest i have less pain, when i train chest again i have pain, do i have the same problem in your opinion?
    I forgot to say that I also have some rattling in my shoulder

  • Really loving your videos honey badger, doing different variations is giving me a much needed shot in the arm for my workouts, keep em coming. ��

  • Even though you look like a flailing fish on a weight bench with most of these exercises I do admit that they work. You’ve helped alot.. keep it up sir

  • I always get really bad shoulder pain and impingement on whichever shoulder I sleep on. The only time when I don’t have shoulder pain is when I sleep on my back for a few weeks and then I snore all the time. Going to get some bands off amazon and try this and see if it helps!

  • Amazing tips and excersises, Now when are you going to tell us about your steroid cycle? i mean come on everybody knows what’s up these days, The old half natty trick doesn’t work anymore.

  • I love going crazy with my 15-25 pound dumbbells doing every variation of every exercise I can think up til I feel the right one that murders the muscle I’m going for. You gave me a few ideas to try. Thanks man!

  • I couldn’t grow delts for anything! Then I started seeing one guy at the gym after he was done working whatever body part for the day, went over to the cable and did side raises (10lb) ALOT of them and leave. So I started doing the same 15-20 reps, 3-5 sets and I can promise you 100% it works. I’m actually 5 days in on trying this routine since gyms are closed.

  • After I found a video you did on Feeder workouts I’ve been doing 100 reps every morning for about 6 months. Definitely seeing the growth and separation. Started with the 10s, now using 15s and about to go to the 20s. Good stuff man and it works!

  • Thank you so much Hanna�� I’m gonna do this all excercises on the gym tommorow�� I can feel THAT burning already�� Have a nice day!��

  • Hey guys, I just wanted to say that you videos have helped me a lot, thank you very much. Can I also just ask a question about this video? whenovong on to the next exercise do I keep doing the previous one as well? Thanks again.

  • After baby comes and you are treated and ready to come back to us…can you teach me how to flare my lats?? I’m having trouble finding good contact and engaging them the way I need to on certain exercises.
    Would also love to see another top 5 for hamstrings and glute tie-in. Xoxo best wishes from Alaska

  • Hi… I’ve been diagnosed with shoulder arthritis. For some weird reason I sleep with my arm up above my head when laying down. With my head resting on the pillow and my arm underneath the pillow stretching out (hope you can understand what I mean ha). Could sleeping with my arm in the position contribute to the arthritis and/or pain. Thanks in advice ����

  • Instagram I’m Mareb4xmas but can’t view your insta. Can u check it out? @richardducon cool vid informational and you do the vids a lot better. Enjoying them! Stay blessed.

  • Dude where u at? Miss the videos brother. Gonna place a kickass order soon. Getting gut supplement and bew super human mix. Hope all is well broheim.

  • Okay not to be a jerk but any woman watching this there were a few things wrong. Switching from sitting down to standing up should actually be reversed because by standing while pressing you are using your core muscles which means you’re working twice as hard while standing and should probably stay standing. Also if anyone notice the fit chick helping the other chick do back flys with pinkies up was an internal rotation of the shoulders which is a no no. Her thumbs should have been pointed up to the ceiling and not down to the floor to be in an external rotation which is better for your shoulders and strengthens your scapula muscles. The upright dumbbell row was actually performed well other than the fact she would turn it in an internal rotation which again is not healthy for your shoulders and just starting in the fixed position is best. Lateral raises were done nicely other than the fact of her sitting to start than standing. The reverse flys by keeping your arms straight does some work but not a lot and would be better if the elbows were bent and would then get your shoulders extended more to create more tension on the rear delts and also not having your pinkies point to the ceiling and pointing the back of the hand to the ceiling would be better. Reps and the effort was all great just the forms were off a bit.

  • If I dont have those bands is there a exercise I can do to strengthen my rotator cuff? Maybe a dumbell exercise or just using natural body mechanics?

  • I now have about 90% of my range of motion back from frozen shoulder. Your videos have helped!!!

    The recent 2 months have been, more pushing through a bit of discomfort in each range, each session gaining a bit more range. Now, there is really very little discomfort. It is like my tissues are elastic or plastic when I begin the tissues are stiff and then loosen up. One range now lets my arm flop normally to the table from the start, so that is “cured”. I see another range getting floppy towards the end.

    My final exercises are 2 times a day for 45 minutes. I ice after. I do general stretching and some strengthening with hand weights first. Then I am on my back moving my arm in different directions until the hand hits the table it takes many weeks to get the hand all the way to the table! At times I add a 2 lb. hand weight to get just a bit more loosening up and stretch. I do external rotation (elbow at the waist, hand falls outwards), then external rotation with abduction (the native american “how” position, first hand falls backwards for stretches and then forward). Then the internal rotations first moving my arm in front inward from the waist, and the last is moving my hand up my back which can now brush the blade if I push with my other hand.

    The newest exercise I’ve added is the butterfly: lying on my back, hands behind my head, letting my elbows fall outward letting the weight of my arms be enough to “push” them into a stretch. I rock my arms up and out 10 times, set of 3. One set I leave my elbows out and that pulls just a bit more. I think there is an adhesion in the front at my arm pit and this maneuver seems to increase the stretch outward. My left arm is normal and my right frozen arm is very close to matching it now.

  • I know this is random guys but
    im using cashapp
    My username is $zilenab
    I would like to go to the bap concert on 10/20/18 if you can help me with 5$ thank you �� I have raised 60 $ so far! I am behind by 30$

    Love the videos by the way Hanna ����I know I don’t comment much but anyways you are goals ����I always comment on your if videos lol ��

  • Hey. I’ve just found your channel and binge-watched nearly everything. Great content and very helpful. I know you have already done a video on vegan Keto but I was hoping you could do another to clear up some of the confusion with that diet when bodybuilding? For example, how to avoid hitting your carb limit miles before you intake of fat and protein is adequate. How to gain muscle when your protein limit on keto is below what you need when you use an online calculator or lb of muscle to gram of protein. I have looked online and found it all very confusing and contradictory. Please help.:-)

  • our shoulder workout is almost the same i only add in a few more movements and do a lot of supersets and dropsets while training shoulders:)

  • Hanna! I just want to say thank you. I have lost 22.4 lbs this summer and came upon your videos looking for new workouts and I love them! They are so informative and you get straight to the point.

  • You’re great! And respect you ���� just get your anatomical terms correct. It’s not called shoulder deltoid when referring to the side part of the shoulder. Correct terminology is lateral deltoid. The whole muscle of the shoulder is called deltoids, divided into 3anterior, medial, and posterior deltoids

  • I had a frozen shoulder it lasted over 2 years and then finally one day I twisted my neck hard and it crunched then I had excruciating facial and jaw pain all night long then it unfroze! I still can’t move it as I once did but static stretching helped to raise it inch by inch

  • I love you, Jeff. Man, I swear I do.
    I was with this pain since february. No improvement even stopping my activity with the exercise. A sonography did not show any injury, and I started to think I was turning crazy.
    Well, I started this Jeff stuff last month and I’m really amazed with my progress. I’m not healed completely, but definitely I feel better.
    So, people… it works.
    Thank you, Jeff.

  • Hey Hanna would love to know your getting warmed up exercises and your cool down/stretching exercises. I am obsessed with your vibes! xo

  • FYI Your front press sitting down target’s the triceps…standing front raises arms extended targets the shoulders..
    Lat raises should be down like your pushing the weight away not rocking your body
    And that is not a row
    Get a trainer

  • Could you make a video about your favorite sport supplements. Your opinion about BCAA, Glutamine, Creatine and other. What’s work better for you and what not. Thank you!

  • I have a question: I hurt my shoulder badly about 2 weeks ago doing military press. It’s BETTER as I sit here now, but there is still discomfort that varies in intensity day-to-day. (Usually correlates to what I did the day before.)
    Now, I’ve been doing arms, or back, or legs, or core DAILY since the injury, and I’m wondering….is this stupid of me? Can bi/tri/back exercises prevent my shoulder from healing all the way?
    What do you recommend for someone who injures their shoulder? Stay away from upper body completely? Stay away from gym completely? The pain isn’t like SUPER intense, but, when I move my shoulder a certain way, it can be very discomforting.
    This injury is seriously depressing me. I have lost ALL my gains (which were actually quite substantial) since the Gyms reopened.

  • I get this really bad shoulder pain only on one side and it is on the bump of the shoulder..

    The worst exercise for me seems to be the dip, slight pains doing bench, Arnold press hurts…

    I rested for nearly three weeks and still get this pain although it would recover a little quicker… I just want this pain to be gone
