Bodybuilding Blunders: 6 Muscle Groups You Shouldn’t Be Skipping When it comes to working out, there are certain staple body parts that bodybuilders and lifter aficionados enjoy more than others. Chest, biceps, and shoulders are rarely skipped in any routine. Heavy deadlifts will put muscles on places you didn’t even know existed, and they’ll help build functional strength. Avoid these common mistakes and watch your deadlift soar! If you’re still having trouble getting your technique right, investing in a coach is one of the best investments you’ll ever make.

Very few people require or can recover from weight-training workouts that exceed the 90-minute mark. The only two muscle groups that should take you that long, due to their size and complexity, are your back and legs. Any other body part should be done in an hour or less—and shoulders or arms shouldn’t take more than 40-45 minutes. For example, to roll a larger muscle group, such as the hamstrings, look for a roller with a wider diameter so you can place enough pressure on those muscles to be effective.

On the other hand, a much smaller roller would be appropriate for a smaller muscle group, such as the forearm. There are many options out there, so choose wisely. Even if you are hitting on different muscle groups, you shouldn’t be lifting 7 days a week every week. Your muscles need some time to rest.

And you definitely don’t need to be doing abs every day. If you aren’t seeing growth reason is your muscles aren’t getting a chance to build back up. try doing a 4 day split, with 3 days of rest/cardio. The larger muscle groups (such as chest, back, shoulders and legs) should be trained once a week (or at least according to popular convention). The smaller muscles groups (such as biceps, triceps, and calves) should be trained twice a week. And with a 6 day workout routine, you are allowed one rest day per week.

Lets pop some of this. In order to stimulate muscle growth, you have to push each muscle group to the point that it fails, i.e., where you cannot perform any additional unassisted repetitions. It is at this point that your brain receives a signal from the muscles indicating that it needs to stimulate additional muscle growth in preparation for the next bout of exercise. But the rotators—a group of four strap muscles that work in coordination with the delts—help stabilize the shoulder joint. When you train your delts—and chest, for that matter—but skip your rotators, the ratio of the strength between the two muscle groups can become imbalanced, and that increases your risk of a rotator-cuff injury.

11 most common mistakes in bodybuilding. But remember your overall look will get improve if you train legs properly. So, don’t skip leg workouts they are as much as important than other muscle groups.

6. Longer Rest Intervals-Now, this is most common mistakes and you must work on. In order to stimulate muscle growth, you have to push each muscle group to the point that it fails, i.e., where you cannot perform any additional unassisted repetitions. It is at this point that your brain receives a signal from the muscles indicating that it needs to stimulate additional muscle growth in preparation for the next bout of exercise.

This author feels that as long as individuals are training within a repetition or two of failure (such that at least 10 repetitions are performed when 12 could have been done in good form) progress should occur.

  • I’m gonna try these, I’ve already had dry needling in my upper traps & it helped tremendously, however, everytime I’m back in the gym my upper traps take over no matter how much mind/muscle connection I try doing. It’s causing me so much neck pain & problems ��

  • I have to be active daily or I go stir crazy. LOL But you simply alternate what you’re doing.

    For example, a sample week for me may be: Upper body push/pull on Mon/Thurs, Hill sprints/legs on Tues/Fri, jump rope on Wed/Sat, and a hike on Sun.

    **Plus you’re going to be sedentary for hours at a time on a daily basis with work and sleep. So the body gets plenty of downtime.

  • I think most guys began lifting for girls, had someone break their heart and then continued just for personal happiness.
    Like if you agree

  • I still don’t get the point of leg-day. why not do upper boddy big muscle work-outs like pull-ups? why waste testosterone for leg growth?

  • cool video. I think women have a more favorable perception of the dudes in so-called ottermode vs bigger body builder physiques bc women may perceive them as being higher on the LMS (looks money status) scale. Bear mode dudes may have to battle a negative stereotype as being roid rage meat heads or just simply 1 dimensional.

  • Watched the video and I was like, in my head “Literally I don’t give a fuck of what women wanna think of my physique, I lift for the gainz, and also for my health and longevity, and also to look damn good, also to get like some fitness people cos I’m jealous of ho big they are and I wanna be that big.” Also imagine being that shallow you actually only lift for women.

  • a lot of people in uproar about him saying “eliminate rest days” but not paying closer attention to the message ��

    he didn’t say “workout hard every day of the week.” you can still put in a light exercise on your off days, even when you’re sore. be it a light ab exercise or a light cardio, something simple, to keep your body active (and not wipe you out). i do that. moving my limbs to do a light exercise actually helps me recover faster than just ‘resting’ my muscles.

  • I love your videos and I have been implementing a lot of what I am learning from you to my workouts and seeing great results. Would you please do a bro science video on weight training belts regarding using belts for every workout and such things that take place in the gym? Thanks!

  • Squat and deadlift activate more than half of the body ‘s muscles?? legs and lower body already have the biggest muscles in the body, and these exercise also work the upper body as well?

  • Im sorry but this doesnt make sense……even working at like 80 percent intensity on workouts so as not to get so sore that you CANT work out…….where is the time for your muscules to recover if you dont take a rest day here and there?

  • I’ve been searching for a video like this for years as my traps have been active in everything I do even the tiny tasks. Thank you!

  • You can workout everyday for the rest of your life and rest 8hours a night for the rest of your life. When people say youre overtraining it means youre under resting. Not enough rest equals not enough gains. Meaning you can workout everyday but make sure your sleep matches up with it at night. And to all the people saying this is bs, get off the internet and try pushing yourself everyday and then get maximum rest everyday and k promise you, I PROMISE YOU training seven days a week wont sound like a myth. Find your balance.

  • When I take a rest day, I mentally believe I’ll underestimate my following training session but I always over perform on that given day while unlocking new strength gains the natural way. It’s not no BS theory, but one can feel their body dominate with proper healthy rest when it’s done the right way with an ample amount of sleep and healthy food sources for recovery. I get it that stoppani is a doctor but I’m believing in myself when I say he’s on some BS with his message

  • Do compound movement based full body movement training for 3 days and do light weight accessories (and cardio if preferred) on rest days.

  • From personal experience, when I was scrawny… I had no women paying attention to me… none were interested. When I was lean and fit… I had no women paying attention to me… none were interested. When I said fuck it I’m not going to be lean and fit instead I’m going to bulk up… I had a few women paying attention to me… few were interested. As I worked out more and more and started focusing on packing muscle and mass and less on being lean and aesthetic the more attention and interest I got from women.

    The most attention I got was when I was big and bulky at 20%-22% body fat. I literally had no attention when I was lean and fit at 9%-11% body fat… but grew up thinking thats what most women would want and go after, but that was dead fucking wrong. What also seemed odd to me was that the leaner and fitter I was, the women that were most attracted to me were average looking at best and most overweight or chubby. Whereas when I was big and bulky, the women that were most attracted to me were very attractive looking and tended to be on the leaner/skinnier or fit side. It really blew my mind how it was literally the exact opposite of what I thought growing up.

  • Your videos are more informative than any Arnold Schwarzenegger video or even those of Bruce Lee because it describes human anatomy so much more and tells the relationship between the scalenes and the diaphragm.

  • A stronger man is what has protected a woman and her baby for almost 8 thousand years, even though a stronger man is not as usefull today. From a biology perspective Women are still attracted to that because stuff like attraction is meant to increase reproductivity, reproductivity needs a strong protective man, so women are attracted to that by biological instinct.

  • Not going to sell me on this bullshit. I work out 3 days a week right now. Going to start up four next month but I will probably stick with just four days a week. You need your rest days to recover and if you say you don’t then your on some stuff.

  • So it’s only my right trap. I am able to move my whole shoulder blade on that side independently up and down but not my left side. It is also tight and sore. I’m guessing it’s because it is hyper active. I don’t know why and it’s weird it’s only the one side!

  • Zac Efron’s muscles are nothing to write home about? You do realize the internet is full of people saying he took steroids? What has the world become when the muscles of men taking steroids are called “nothing to write home about”???

  • If anyone still needed convincing that this guy is a snake oil salesman ( PhD or not) then this video confirms it, utterly ridiculous advice.

  • Half of your body? Are we talking leg press or squats here? Cmon wtf…

    I dont do legs, I do squats and deadlifts and maybe bulgarian split squat. Leg days are for bodybuilders.

  • I’m in agreement that you don’t have to have an overabundance of rest days. I train six days a week in total between weight training and burst cardio. And usually on the seventh, I still do some sort of short yoga stretching. But I still take two full weeks off a year. Because for me it’s not the muscles that are the problem. I do a lot of high intensity, lower volume stuff. So I fry them, I don’t obliterate each muscle group with 30 sets a week. It’s the joints and tendons that need the rest, though. Usually about every six months something starts to nag, most recently a tendon on my right shoulder. I don’t want to half ass my program, so I just leave the gym for a week. You wouldn’t believe how much your energy levels come back and how much more motivated you are at the end of it. I come back, see some new gains, and bust through strength plateaus every time.

  • I hate fast food no worries there after my kidneystohe my diet changed. It was the breatjing during ab workouts that confused me. This helps

  • Im doing push-ups so my arms don’t look so skinny because I already am and my arms have grown but I don’t want to be all muscle because I just don’t like that look

  • I think women don’t care if you have a zack body or the rocks they just prefer what looks more symmetrical and proportional to your own qualities like height, head size and such, imagine if the rock’s body was women ideal one and than take a short guy to beef up with the same muscle mass and he will look ridiculously out of proportion

  • Actually, u have to start with the heavy items then work down to the lighter to gain more muscle and to form the shape of the muscle.

  • Girls like Tyler Durden body. (Brad pitt in fight club) guys saw that movie because its a awesome movie with some violence and revolting against the system in a underground club… Girls saw it for Brad.

  • I am doing full body 1 exercice per body part 6 times a week and honestly best result ever, better than split, push pull, or upper lower, specially for nattys

  • He sounds like someone who smoked a little bit to much joint a liiittle bit to long and then made a life changeing descion to do something with his life so he cut down on the weed and studied and learned everything about biomechanics and stuff. love it!

  • You should be able to tell if your testosterone spikes because you get horny. All the time. And your metabolism is high when you’re just sitting there and heat radiates from the inside. It’s crazy.

    1.5 to 2 hours of weights. With 10 minute warm-up: 5 minute jogging followed by 5 minutes of sprinting (1 mile per day).

  • people hate leg day becasue the exercises like squat, leg press etc etc are not really fun to do
    that was my thinking when i was people.
    now i love me some leg day love squats and Deadlifs.

  • I personally think that you should hit the gym for yourself with girls as an afterthought. not only will this boost your confidence and promote a healthy self image, but studies have shown that the men who try less when it comes to ‘chasing’ girls and whatnot actually preform better than those who make females their priority.

  • I physically can’t do bicycle crunches idk why. I swear my brain farts everytime I try to and it’s like I can’t balance myself doing it

  • Hi I always have the idea that my right shoulder, trap, is more tight than my left shoulder, trap. Got any tips how to solve this?

  • Symmetrical, athletic, attractive face. If you stand on toothpicks, do not focuse on building upper body to make up for it. Simples ��

  • I find it funny that people think it’s impossible to train everyday, particularly full body everyday.

    As if the human body is only able to do physical activity every other day, rather than every single day.

    Of course it is possible to train full body everyday. That doesn’t mean that you can do stronglifts 5×5 everyday. But if you can handle 5×5 3 days a week, there is no reason you cannot handle 2×5, maybe even 3×5 everyday. And there is no question that you could handle 1×5.

    Im not saying that would be the best way to programme daily full body training, but it’s to illustrate that it obviously can be done. You just can’t do the same amount of work in each session if you are doing twice as many sessions in a week, obviously.

    Plenty of people lift heavy everyday. Plenty of people do fullbody training everyday. Of course it can be done. Is it optimal? Potentially. If you do it right. Even if it isn’t better, it is at least just as good as ‘traditional’ training methods. Assuming you know what you’re doing that is. And someone just prefer to train everyday rather than having to take days off all the time.

    In any case, you can do full body everyday. Obviously. Is it so hard to believe?

  • This is an excellent video. I was suffering from some shoulder impingement on my right side and dysfunctional biomechanics in several of my upper body lifts. The culprit? Tense upper traps. The exercises you suggest are very effective, though I prefer doing the second one standing and pushing my hand against the edge of a table. In any case, thanks very much. My shoulder is beginning to feel much better. Staying away from heavy shrugs for a while…

  • for me, my workout goal is to increase my maximum weight of weighted one arm pull up. 12.5kg at the moment.

    i am lean and muscular when i squeeze, 8 pack abs with big lats big arms big legs(+65kg pistol squat, idk how i can do that despite i only train legs 2 times per month)
    26in waist.

    i am quite sloppy when i dont squeeze my muscles… no abs, slight belly… 30in waist.

  • One guy can have high amounta of testosterone and another low the low can still have much bigger muscle and you know what fuck that its all bullshit all of it testosterone only and only depend on genetic bio clock its not related to how much you want and how much you train because its always but always will come back to the normal amount no matter fucking what and thats the truth testosterone doesn’t make you more man the opposite the more man you are the more testosterone you have

  • This guy is an idiot. And him spreading out his hands every three seconds is fucking annoying.

    The body cannot be worked out every day. That’s just common sense.
    And look at his body. It’s not all that impressive.
    Are some people THIS stupid to listen to this guy?

  • Did this fuckstick just say the human body is designed to work 7 days a week and you don’t need rest days?
    Full of fucking shit, if you work hard enough, harder than last time dammit, you will need rest days
    Not letting your muscles recover, especially if you are working hard, at that point, you are just begging for an injury

  • I hate leg days. But i still do them.
    Squats, dumbell lunges, leg ext, leg curls and calves raises. Then i gtfo from the gym. I also do heavy dumbell shoulder press on leg days.

    Lunges are the worst imo

  • 6 months pregnant and dealing with constant overactive traps! Led to bad neck and back soreness. This worked like nothing else! Thank you!

  • These studies have to be flawed… I had over 50 sexual encounters with different women. And I’m a chubby guy. Money? Nah, I’m a poor nerd.

  • Wow i didn’t even know i made all of these mistakes�� thank u for telling me them and backing up with science:) (also i really appreciate ur videos for women)

  • GUYS TRY IT! I have scoliosis that has lad to a ton of tightness in the traps they’re almost constantly firing but with this exercise I finally understood how to turn them off

  • Could my neck pain be coming from this? I always get tense neck and traps after workouts and i feel i activate those same muscles on exercises like push ups… Great channel btw, congratulations!

  • This is witchcraft �� I’ve had a ton of trouble with my shoulders shrugging up on bench press and doing these exercises every day has (a) relaxed my tight traps, and (b) allowed my scapula to depress while benching. Thanks!

  • I train 7 days a week but I never do the same muscle group the next day and I take bcaas to help me recover? What do you guys think

  • I used to hardly ever wear my shirt off then one day at the pool I took my shirt off and girls wouldn’t leave me alone. Girls do like muscles. I’m not that big or barrel chested. I’m tall though. Not fat. Minimal muscle definition.

  • Hahaha this into threw me off so badly. It’s been a while since I watched the channel so I legit thought the one guy took over the channel for Jeff

  • I have been suffering from an overactive trap for over a year now that has cost me a ton of gains since i wasn’t able to train properly due to trap and shoulder tightness. Also. Lots of time and money with physical therapists to help me give me a proper diagnosis (they thought it was a shoulder tear). Just from the two exercises alone, my trap is already feeling infinitely better. Im going to start doing these everyday and see how my trap is in a month. Feeling very confident. You are a liffesaver!!

  • I hope this helps, my left trap is so dominant I can’t do bench press anymore because he takes over and I couldn’t keep my shoulderbladrs together

  • If you’ve never deliberately exhaled “all the way out”, you’ve got some very funky gas at the bottom of your lungs. It’s so bad, that you don’t want to inhale again, because the worst of it is still in your mouth and throat. But do it a few times, and you’ll start to get that foul air changed. This is one of many yoga detoxification exercises, and happens automatically with certain abdominal exercises (like nauli).

  • Funny thing is how this guy doesn’t even have any impressive muscle gains and he is talking about how it’s better to eliminate rest days. This video is the biggest bro science bs that I ever watched in my life. No wonder you don’t have any gains. If you don’t take rest days, you’re not training hard enough. And I don’t take advices from a guy who doesn’t even have any gains. Unsubscribed:)

  • He says that he’s only gonna be doing 1 tricep exercise even though the triceps make up 2/3 of your arms, I mean it seems like he does his training based on bro science but it works for him, I would say if you are focusing on your biceps this is a good workout but it’s not the greatest arm workout.

  • I was literally just doing push-ups and thinking my shoulder popping comes from my traps being too active and pulling the shoulder girdle up….and then I open youtube and they’ve recommended this video. Has YouTube installed secret camera to watch us????

  • Yesterday I did shoulders with your advice, for the first time I feel sore, I feel this is the first time I’ve actually exercised shoulders. Thank you so much for the advice, if I could afford it I’d totally buy one of your plans. This guy is legit bois

  • This dude is a monster. Also, concentration curls never do much for me.. I don’t know if it’s my form or what, but I never get that deep burn. EZ-bar curls, on the other hand, always get my biceps pumped.

  • He said ‘gene’ repeatedly, which shows that he is a real scientist. He also wears a vest and talks an octave below normal, which shows that he is a real exerciser.

  • i actually never started working out because i wanted to impress girls…but i started lifting because i got inspired by arnold and i was very skinny teen ager but i wanted to look muscular..and strong that’s how i started lifting and side benifits were girls are also attractive to me but it was never the most important thing to me… whenever i lift i try to satisfy myself. My hunger.

  • Rest days, no, but rest, yes. There is a difference. Rest is important and sometimes a break in routine is a must. Good sleep is vital. Age and health makes a difference as well as it will take longer to recover accordingly. Smaller steps might be better on certain days.
    As a 55 year old, type 1 diabetic it takes longer to recover from hard full body workouts, but I don’t work out the same everyday, even though it is still full body. I listen to my body.

  • I lift to demonstrate myself that i can become better by the day, and to test stuff on my body like, how lean can i get, what foods get me fat, what training is optimal for me? Indeed i started because of a rejection, but that was years ago, now i just enjoy every bit of the process, and nothing makes me prouder than that moment when i see increases in strength, or a morning when i look in the mirror and i say thank God i m living a healthy lifestyle.

  • Women like dad bods because they feel that they dont have to keep up with the lifestyle and less insecurity issues. However if you have muscle then you can steal a female from they bf and bang em in a nissan Altima

  • For me the body is just a bonus cause looks fade fast, but if I had to choose an ideal body type it would be like you work out and stay in shape but ur not like a steroids pumped body builder

  • lmao 2:58 you telling me this dude isn’t on steroids at his age looking like that all year round with that low % body fat all year round.

  • I’ve watched your videos & they have been THE BEST to help me fix my posture, compared to all the other people on youtube. I definitely being feeling a difference in my posture. Your methods are simple & make so much sense. THANK YOU STRENGTH SIDE!

  • Very helpful id like to take this guy to MacDonalds once for Lunch and drive right passed it and go get some real “Pho” then walk 2 hours right afterwards.

  • Maybe it’s because I’m taller than Jeff, I dunno but I’ve been bodybuilding for 6 years and tried this workout.. I could not even attempt set 6 lifting my 10 rep max to near failure. I got a great workout but man, 10 sets?? Do I need to lift lighter? My legs feel like noodles and my right knee has got some not-quite-right pain.

  • attractive women like attractive men. it’s simple. women who are insecure about their looks or less attractive will be more comfortable with a man who is less attractive. regarding huge muscles, that’s far less attractive to women than the brad pitt fight club body. but, if you go to a bachelorette party, you see all women, ugly and attractive, getting very excited by the huge male strippers. so again, i think women judge men based on their insecurities: “can i keep this man?”, instead of: “that man is hot and i want to be his cock sock”….but, women also judge their mates based on social and economic stature, whereas men are 90% focused on how physically attractive the woman is. i dont know why it is so hard for everyone to understand this. so many youtube videos on this subject. it seems pretty clear to me.

  • Lol this doesn’t even sound like someone with a PhD, this sounds like a high schooler making a project for debate class to convince people you shouldn’t do rest days. sounds like a politician or some shit, a bunch of big technical terms with 0 actual detailed explanation. If you believe this, can I ask you why you also think Jeffrey Epstein killed himself?

  • Bruh it’s so unfair if you think about it.. Men are going to the gym working their ass off while women (majority of them) sit at home posting stories about the chocolate cake they are gonna eat.. And not only that but they’re still picky
    (disclaimer 2: I’m talking about majority and this and ONLY specific topic)

  • he is interpreting the study wrong. question should be what you like in male body in order. like for example 24% who liked chest, their second choice could have been legs, which will eventually increase the amount of women that likes legs. but what is interpreted here is since 1% like legs the most so legs come at much later than abs and arm. Jesus need to study, Wtf i am doing in here??
    LOl

  • I have been muscular since like 2017 don’t care what they like it’s about me loving my body. Another point is women where I come from love skinny men those guys who were thin to the extreme would have had maybe 2 or 3 gfs in my city. Honestly they go for the skinny lean muscle guys like Zac Efron before he bulked.

  • How to get women to like you.

    1) Be tall.

    2) Have a handsome face.

    3) Don’t be fat.

    That’s literally it as long as you aren’t an autistic retard.

  • But during quarantine it’s only essential to maintain weight and not overeat. I’ve make a video on how to “overcome overeating” take a look ��

  • Physical and mental exercise that is what i need. Specially todays lockdown.i spend almost 1 year now working onboard the ship and being healthy is one way to keep me alive everyday at work.
    Thank you for this video and new ideas added to my routine.

  • There’s no excuse not to exercise… while I’m home quarantine I’m doing push-ups flat, incline, decline… I have dumbbells �� I’m doing anything for the biceps �� and triceps, back, legs �� and bench dip…it’s really up to ourselves we need motivation and be sure not loss my hard earned muscle

  • Taking advice from a synthetic drug enhansment user… No one believes you… That u can be 49. No need for rest days.and have a full time job and pay attention to your dog and kids and wife.. crazy talk

  • I am from Mumbai,India
    You had made a video of your trip to India and I would like to tell you that you missed the local train of Mumbai �� ������

  • When pushin the ground you should be seated on the opposite but cheek. Due to the muscles insertions at the mid back…. getting that fascia crossed activated…

  • I don’t think it’s good to workout only for people to be attracted to you, but as far as the most attractive body part, I like legs. Nice quads, hamstrings, calves! ���� Nothing too big, but fit and proportionate to the rest of the body. To me the legs make a huge difference in a guy’s appearance!

  • Deadlifts and heavy bench can do the same, anything that is a big hit to the central nervous system.����
    Maximum effort is what’s required.

  • Serious question. Can I do leg day everyday? So I did chest today and going back this afternoon to do legs. Can I do this every afternoon after morning training?

  • It’s quite simple: The healthier you look, the more attractive you are.
    They think of offspring and longevity and sex. Fat, obese guys gets almost no action.

  • The strength study doesn’t really address strength but more like visually perceived strength so it’s still optics right not actual objective strength, right?

  • This guy is a joke. He looks like an average guy who doesn’t take training seriously, he doesn’t even have any impressive gains. Just delete this joke video because people are unsubscribing from you.

  • Squats are the most uncomfortable thing in the world. But damn do I feel great afterwards when I can barely walk. The soreness eventually subsides and it’s not bad if you have intense sessions and don’t half ass it. My pants use to be loose and I was self conscious about my tiny legs. Now my pants hug my ass and thighs like no other. Love it.

  • I’m trying to gain wait so I really do want to do leg days. I love leg days I never want to miss it. In a way in my mind it’s cheating for me to meet my goals because it is such a large muscle group. Don’t tell anyone though.

  • So much nonsense in this comments. Fullbody doesn’t mean, squatting, or deadlifting everyday. What’s about calisthenics? Everyday push ups, bw rows, chins, handstand push ups, bw squats 23 sets, 10-12 reps?! sure, u can du that everyday. By the way: Eric helms trains also fullbody everyday

  • Jeff, your instructions on how to breathe when doing crunches was a bit confusing. You should redo that part of the video and make it clearer.

  • I may be the odd man out here but i dont like “quick sex” so 1 night flings are not very interesting to me. Sex is far better when you have a deeper connection. I wouldnt turn down a fling bj though lol. Thats just instant gratification.

  • Aren’t traps supposed to be active in your posture? I haven’t heard what it is the problem you are talking about that they are causing? What you showed is forward shoulders and anteriorly tilted shoulderblades nothing to do with traps fault. Shoulderblades in posture have to be held by traps and posteriorly tilted slightly. What you provoke with soft inactive traps is shoulder impingement, and all kinds of nerve problems with narrowing down costoclavicular space. As far as neck pain from shoulders being up, it is probably forward head and shoulder posture and if anything weak traps.

  • 15-30 seconds rest between sets is not enough. you should wait for around 2 minutes to give some time for your muscles to function properly in each set.

  • Not forgetting the benefit of myostatin reduction by training everyday. I divide my 126 sets per week into 18 sets per day and its gains baby!

  • When I go heavy and intense enough on squats I swear every single muscle in my body is getting worked in some way or another. I remember one time doing a new 10RM and the next day even my biceps and triceps were sore.

  • Wow. I actually watched this video for the benefit of my husband. Quarantine has given him extra pounds around his midsection. So I want to be doing this ab workouts with him as an encouragement. But my question is can do these workouts because am still working on healing my Disecti recti (separation of the ab wall after child bearing). Wondering if the workouts would worsen my ab situation.

  • High training frequency done by Jeff nippard is also a great video. Ignorant noobs speak like they got a degree in everything. Thanks for the video Jim. Look at gymnasts for instance. Great physical features. Keep the information going. Thank you.

  • Heyy I love a great educational channel ������ your videos even helped me to start my own educational math channel @Tayna Lee Check me out!! Let’s support each other.

  • What about abs and lats, this video is awesome but please make one more video like this. Which exercise we should do together. Please cover complete body part.

  • Simple. Be as lean as possible but stop before you look fragile. Add muscle until you look like it could impede your cardio (ie ability to lay the pipe)

  • This channel is the great channel to the people like me who don’t know many things doing correct way.Thanks Bright Side I have started my weight loss training after checking out your video of excercise

  • Riddle: 3 mothers took their 3 daughters to a studio for a very special photoshoot. The photographer charges a rate of $50 per person, but the group was only charged $200 on their invoice at full price (no discounts). How?

  • i dont like legday, but i felt like legday make you sweat the most. im still doing it regardless..but i noticed that after one 1 hour workout i felt like i have no energy to continue n feels like i want to puke..is it normal?

  • This guy is the best! I love the videos he makes. It has amazing content and he’s really funny! I love the songs he used especially the one at the beginning “relax-Frankie goes to Hollywood”. ��
    Keep it up!������

  • I am a subscriber and love this channel but it seems like people have been showed and taught so many wrong ways to do exercises, it just seems like there’s always something wrong with about almost every exercise that we do now days and it creates panic like oh shit should I worry because I’ve been doing exercises like this forever and now it’s bad lol I’m just thinking �� we should all do some investigating on all of our workout programs and exercises but thanks �� for everything Jeff it’s great to at least know there’s someone out there trying to save people from injury’s…

  • Here are my three reasons to workout 1. To be the strongest in my family 2. To be able to get the ladies 3. To be strong enough to protect my future wife and kid/kids

  • Alot of boxers don’t do rest days that’s full body training, I only boxed at amateur level and rest days weren’t a thing… You went down to shadow boxing and skipping for 3 days before a bout I’ve never felt as good as I did then, horses for courses tho I guess ��

  • I’m a woman with very developed legs. I am definitely into legs and feet in men, preferably larger than mine. Luckily I found him and married him. Awesome videos on your channel btw, binge watching.
    Ps: proportion definitely counts when it comes to attraction, so too much in one zone can be off-putting

  • I steel really don’t able to understand how should I breath while doing abs workout. Can please explain me in comment section. Like should I breath out when I squeeze my abs Or breath in when I squeeze my abs???

  • Thanks for the video. I read the same data…I have one point to make about the hair…the hair is mostly weighted heavy by older women…40s, 50s, 60s, and that’s why hair is so high. Hair becomes a metric at the ages it starts to leave many men.

  • As a woman and an athelete I can confirm that I’m more physically attracted to VERY muscular but not lean men; but I always find myself attracted to different body types once I get to know someone; but I’m never attracted to thin, or overly lean men.

  • Another great vid chock full of good info. Always a lot to think thru and absorb. If I had a teacher in first grade that could pump me up and make me crave more…. I’d have gone to college at 12 years old not 22 years old. Keep em comin

  • Yeah they ask women which is the most attractive muscle. Think of it… at first site most women notice chest and V shape and hair, however over all, to be with a bulked and shredded upper body and with two sticks under it…. It definitely looks laughable:D

  • I’m 6 2″ 235lbs around 17-20% bf with flat stomach but bitches think im fat yes I am fat hey it’s not like one those guys with pregnant belly guts who can event do 5 pushups

  • Nutrition was exactly where I started. Got my eating habits under control, dropped 50lbs and now, here I am taking advice from a guy I would’ve once dismissed as a meathead. Turns out those meatheads know a thing or two about not being a tubby fatass.

  • Face, hair, eyes, jawline, shoulders, forearms and lean athletic legs. That’s what most hot girls want and having a big dick and being a good listener and cooking for them really cements the deal. Trust.

  • The calf and jaw work part killed me. I legit thought he was going to teach us some ab exercises that somehow involved the calves and the jaws. Calves I understood but for jaw I was like??? And then it was all explained.

  • Yeesh, so many people actually reacting so bad…
    There are any ways you can actively workout during a rest day… so it’s kinda not resting. It’s not giving it all always, sometimes do lighter stuff, or different stuff.
    There are a lot of ways to work out.

  • I think you‘re doing high quality Videos and you have a lot of knowledge but I‘d find better if the video Names wouldnt be so negativ like“stop doing…, why doing wrong…, stop the mistakes…“ but instead positve like „correcting the form…, raising quality of the exercises“ I would like it much better, I believe that people want to improve and if you explain things to them they will try to follow the advises and incorporate them into the training or at least attempt to find out the difference them selves and then decide what they prefer, thats why focussing on the positive would really make it more welcome to me

  • Leroy Colbert (old school bodybuilder) was taking 4 rest days a week and he had 21 inch lean arms. I’m rather going to listen to Leroy Colbert than this gym bro who doesn’t even have any gains.

  • I always thought u pushed your triceps towards your thigh on the concentration curl to make it so that its purely your bicep working, guess you learn something new everyday.

  • Bro how can you stay calm while you’re training?! Come on you’re a legend I always try to stay calm.. but i get more and more angry every time i train.. but when I finish i come back to normal
