How to Improve Weak Body Parts & Lifts. It is commonly known that you must attack a weakness to strengthen it. Well the same principle applies to weight training.

When one lacks speed, he or she must utilize more sprints and conditioning work. When one has weak legs, he or she increases workload or leg training frequency. Improve Your Posture.

This is one of the main issues holding back most lifters with weak body parts. Rarely do I meet someone with a lagging body part who doesn’t have poor posture. To have balanced. Principles For Bringing Up Weak Body Parts Dustin Elliott explains how to bring up a lagging body part by doing away with once a week training, and adding in a second workout. A big issue for many bodybuilding enthusiasts is bringing up muscle.

Muscle aches and pain may be from symptoms that happen when your body is responding to some type of inflammation, from muscle atrophy (weakness) or from a true myositis. Inflammation Any time that major inflammation exists (“strep” throat, hepatitis, cancer, lupus, acute heart attack. Simple Way to Improve a Weaker Leg or Side of the Body* When it comes to unilateral exercises (e.g. reverse lunges, single leg hip thrusts, and pistols for the lower body and one arm bench presses, dumbbell rows, and one arm push presses for the upper body) start with the stronger limb first. With a strength-focused workout, the goal is to increase the amount of weight you can lift on the squat, bench press, deadlift, and overhead press. Assistance lifts are included to.

Weakness of the ventilatory muscles can begin early in the disease. In MS, the most common cause of respiratory problems is loss of muscle strength and endurance. Just as a person can experience muscle weakness in the arms or legs, weakness.

So to stop any cravings, eat at fixed times every day and your body will get hungry at those fixed times. 3. Eat Protein with Each Meal to Boost Your Muscle Mass. You need protein to build and maintain muscle. To achieve this, you should be looking to eat at least 1g per 454g of body.

By varying the rep range, you combine lighter and heavier loads to elicit greater increases in strength and muscle size. For example, a heavy day will consist of three to five reps, a. There’s a little bit of difference between the building muscle vs. strength, but one thing is clear: there’s a correlation between muscle mass and strength.

A 2016 study published in Osteoporosis International shows that, as you age, you lose muscle mass and strength.

Strength maybe increased by increasing the net neural drive to the muscle, increasing muscle size, or both.

A common myth associated with strength training is that consuming high-protein foods and special vitamin supplements will increase muscle mass.

Strength gains result from increased motor unit recruitment and firing rates, removal of neural inhibition, and enhanced cocontraction and activation of synergistic muscles, in addition to muscle hypertrophy, and therefore, men and women can achieve similar relative muscle strength increases.

Simply put, if you train by lifting heavier weights or performing more explosive exercises, your body will respond by becoming stronger or more powerful, respectively.

It is possible to make big gains in strength and see little or no functional transfer if certain movements are neglected, allowing antagonistic muscle-group deficits to develop.

  • I enjoyed the bit in this video where you discussed various rep ranges. Personally, I like staying in the threes to fives for compound movements, and then 10 to 20 for isolation work, but my question to you is do you ever mix rep ranges during a workout session or do you wait until another training block? One example, from my personal training, is I really like doing triples on the benchpress. Not straining triples. But nice, smooth, clean, textbook triples. When I go to do tricep pushdowns afterwards, I’ll hammer them with 15+ rep sets. Am I “messing up” my growth potential like that?

  • That is whyb I check out Athlean X from time to time. He shows alterations to exercises for certain injuries and solid advice. And the big hairy monster gives a nice no bs approach as well.

  • Did i ever tell you what the definition of insanity is?

    Good video, i am planning to approach my upper body workout today, from a completely different angle, for example:

    3sets of 10 reps 80kg Flat bench press > 3 sets of 25+ reps 60 kg\ i know weak af:) and after that few sets of incline push ups to failure, would that be enough to give the muscles different stimuli?
    Another thing I would like to ask You, going heavy on shoulder presses, is it necessery to do heavy seated DB presses rather than lighter, one arm DB standing press. You know, unilateral type of work.

  • I am 29 years old and have chest pain specially after periods while sleeping. I have done ECG, ECHO tests twice everything is normal but chest pain won’t disappear.

  • Hello, again. I was wondering if you have a video that addresses proper management of lagging body parts where one side of the body is smaller than the other? For example, as a beginner, my left biceps/triceps is slightly smaller than my right. I suppose that on my next arm day, I could just ignore the right arm and only work the left arm, and just cycle that routine in and out, as needed, until they are more balanced out, but I wonder if that would be the ideal approach. Thanks so much.

  • hello, my age is 34 yr. and recently on 31.03.2020 angioplasty done. dr fixed one stent. pls tell me can i done this exercise??

  • Hi, You mentioned few minutes of walk. Can you please specify how many minutes? Thanks. My heart EF was down to 13%, improved to over 24% now. ( Yes, you may be wondering if I am alive! Yes, I am, by the Grace of God). I take simple medication and go about with my everday work, without any problem. It’s been like this for over a year now. Any suggestions to improve this please!

    Its been found that this happened due to excessive intake of hard liquor, but I have not had a even drop of liquour for an year now.

  • Really helped as I have a heart condition and haven’t exercised for a long time. This does help get the heart going even though they are gentle. Thank you so much. Kindly see John 14:6 and/or book of John. God bless

  • The Monster claims rep ranges don’t matter, only total volume, total tonnage, yet the ONE who hasn’t flinched in over 20 years from bullets whizzing by his ear, hasnt made any improvements whatsoever in terms of muscular size, wouldn’t the best powerlifters and strongmen be more developed than pro bodybuilders if this was the case? ”o

  • Nice Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you considered Trentvorty Irreplaceable Doctor Theorem (do a search on google)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for curing heart disease minus the headache. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my cousin got excellent results with it.

  • Hi doctor I just recently diagnosed with congenital heart disease, atrial septal defect secundum type with left to right shunt and Qp, Qs 1.1.1, I just want to know if this is bad and can do bodybuilding workout. Thank you

  • One thing to avoid right away is the forward shoulder posture caused by having weak rear delts and scapular muscles compared to the pecs and front delts.

  • I have been watching now nonstop since yesterday, I have never come across a bodybuilding channel with so good and well explained advice. You deserve all potiential views you can get and i will make sure to share your videos.. thank you!

  • Everybody has weak points…Mine was a little bit of scoliosis. That problem is now much smaller as I have been lifting weights at the gym for more then 3 years already. Great stuff and great info coming from this guy, ty MD.

  • Thank you for sharing your valuable knowledge. You are an excellent teacher and your veteran experience is way underrated; your channel is one of the best on youtube for its genre, in my opinion.

  • What do you think of rep pause or just holding the weight for long period time like a minute or so,I heard its good for fast twitch fibers and strength but what’s your thoughts on it

  • Jumping jacks, running, and jump rope are better than all of these combined times 1000. I’m not saying don’t do these, but if you start running a mile or a few miles every morning then your heart is going to build tremendous amounts of strength (as long as you start small and work up to the longer distances). Same for jump rope and jumping jacks. Start small and work your way up and your heart will be great!

  • Don’t know if I want to spend the next three years with skinny arms and a massive chest. There seem a lot of guys around that look a bit odd, because they have worked all their good and bad parts equally. I think I will just go easy on the chest until the arms catch up.

  • I agree I only count the sets I take beyond failure so on chest I only do around 6 but really do around 20 sets with warm ups. Back I do 3 sets to failure. I found it takes way more thrashing to stimulate my back and I wonder if it has to do with concrete work I do every day.

  • Thanks for the Video clip! Forgive me for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about Trentvorty Lively Heart Theorem (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)?

    It is a smashing one of a kind product for getting rid of heart disease minus the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my mate finally got excellent results with it.

  • Hello!! Thank you very much for your helpful videos!! I am interested in knowing if you manage your online coaching clients personally or not! Thank in advance!!

  • Hello Steve, thanks for the awesome post. I have been strength training for the past month and gradually my squats, bench, deadlift a shoulder presses have gone up. I have been training for years on and off. My question is a related to this video. I don’t feel my biceps grow as quick. I don’t work my arms with an isolation exercises but I do shoulder side lats and rear and also lat training on days of back. What do you suggest?

  • It’s so hard to do but you hit the nail on the head, John! Nobody wants to slow down on their strongest body part. Ego has to be left at the door unfortunately.

  • Sometimes certain exercises just don’t work well for certain people, and in this case you shouldn’t be married to an exercise that doesn’t build muscle for you personally. I saw a guy squat yesterday at my gym, he had good strength, good form and chicken legs. For him the squat doesn’t build his legs very well, and for him he should probably emphasize other leg exercises more.

  • Hi John,
    Quick question: Is it possible to gain musscle and loose fat at the same time. If yes, than my humble request plz make a video on the same topic. Thank you!!!!

  • Hey boss,

    Its my 2nd year lifting and I cant seem to move up in weight.

    What you spoke about in this video help me out? Or do I need to do something else as well?

  • Mr. Meadows brings it like no one else!!! I did have a question about soy. A lot of protein powders I’ve researched have soy in them. Do you buy the theory that men should stay away from soy as much as possible because of it being an “estrogen mimicker” or should I not worry about it in my protein powder? Appreciate your hard work and real gym content!!!

  • John these types of videos are awesome! Could you please do one focusing in on how to train for hypertrophy? How many sets, ideal reps, how often for each muscle part. Even how to eat and supplements would be great. Thanks Mountain dog!

  • I’m of the opinion that you cannot bring weak points up, to explain I mean if you have lagging arms theyre always going to lag, they will get bigger if your body weight goes up but only relative to the torso which will make them still smaller to the rest of your body, Dennis wolf could nothing about his calves the same as josh wade can do nothing about his arms, its not like these people are lazy.

  • Hey John, how can someone boost their LH naturally? My LH is low for some reason, which is why I have low total and free testosteone. I’ve never taken any anabolics or test, nor do I want to. The two doctors I consulted with could not tell me why my LH is low. I wonder if intermittent fasting could have suppressed my LH? My calories are high enough, but I’ve been fasting up to 18 hours a day sometimes.

  • You are so awesome man. Your content is amazing and helpful and you are just an amazing guy in general. Thank you for everything you do.

  • I love your channel man, but it feels like you’re saying the same stuff in every video and just changing the title. It’d be great to see your workout footage or something to change things up. No hate, just an observation.

  • Great Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you thought about Trentvorty Irreplaceable Doctor Theorem (do a search on google)? It is a good one off product for curing heart disease without the hard work. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my close friend Aubrey at last got astronomical success with it.

  • I have a question pertaining to athletic training along with body building. I’m a swimmer, tons of cardio every day. The thing is though, all of the super fit sprinters are absolutely shredded and jacked. What’s your recommendation to both prioritize athletic performance as well as aesthetics?
    Little edit
    I specifically mean more cardio centered sports. Swimming I know is a different animal when it comes to low impact vs. high impact cardio. Easier to build muscle with of course rather than running.

  • Lovely Video! Excuse me for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you ever tried Trentvorty Irreplaceable Doctor Theorem (do a google search)? It is a great one off guide for curing heart disease without the normal expense. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my buddy after many years got excellent results with it.

  • Hypothetically; if you have an athlete who is at a beginner to intermediate level but his physique is and strength levels are at an elite, how do you assess and address potential weak points that may arise?

  • This is brilliant. It’s like your speaking directly to me. Can’t believe it took me so long to figure this out. It seems so god damn obvious now.

  • Thanks so much for this info John, very humble and down to earth. I always take my sets to failure and also always felt at least 5-6 reps was the minimum standard.

  • John, there are a lot nice and interesting youtube channels out there but I like yours the most. I completely share your vision on training!
    Keep it up dog!

  • Some times I got severe pain in my heart….Wats the problem doctor?n Problem is dat I cant go for treatment during lockdown….can u suggest me?? PLZ PLZ PLZ

  • Love the intensity foundation talk, since I’ve switched from volume to high intensity training my progress has skyrocketed, that plus moderate volume and high frequency is what I think a lot of enthusiasts forget, any of these big big bodybuilders all had their grounding in lifting heavy

  • Question for you, John, maybe worthy of a video answer. In powerlifting, there is a lot of discussion about beginner, intermediate, and advanced programming, based on the lifter’s ability to accrue strength gains over time. Somebody new to the gym and wanting to get stronger would be ill-advised to hop on Texas Method or 5/3/1 on their very first day. My question for you is: in bodybuilding, do you believe hypertrophy training can similarly be broken down into beginner, intermediate, and advanced programming? If so, how would you personally define lifters fitting into each stage and what forms of training do you believe are optimal for each? Many of your programs seem to be aimed at what some might call advanced bodybuilders. If you believe there are beginner, intermediate, and advanced stages of bodybuilding, do you consider any of your existing programs to be optimal for, say, beginner or intermediate bodybuilders? If not, do you have any interest in designing a specific program for a beginner or intermediate bodybuilding audience?

  • As a normal dude who love bodybuilding… I have work family and friends… Also i study.

    How i am suposed to train at high level… Work my core muscles… Work my flexibility… Cause right now i just feel big and crippled… I feel like i dont have so mucj time to spend… Maybe i have to be smartest?

  • Great tips. If anyone needs to remember the tips from this video in a concise way, here’s a list: 1. Form 2. Intensity 3. Volume 4. Recovery.

  • We can never find the reason&the way of adressing own weakpoint in other training vids. Your channel is so reliable!!! Great many thanks for your effort on writings.

  • great video. my uncle took a ‘ heart care pack’ by Planet Ayurveda, now he is completely recovered. a totally herbal product and easy to purchase online and offline.

  • Thank you so much for this video. I have been struggling to build my chest for a while now and this video tackled everything I needed to know.

  • I’m 35 years old and I have a terrible lifestyle. My job requires pretty no physical demand, so I just sit all day at work. And then when I get home, I sit on my couch until it’s time to go to bed. This is daily. I don’t have any hobbies that require physical activity. Lately, I’ve been noticing slight chest pains and my heart rate is extremely high, especially at night. I’m worried that I may have extremely poor heart health. I don’t have health insurance, and I can’t afford to see a doctor, let alone a heart doctor for these concerns that I have… I’ve been searching the internet high and low for ways I can try to address these issues, and there is an overwhelming amount of information for me to process… I’m looking for simple and effective ways to boost the health of my heart, and at this point, I’m becoming a bit desperate. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

  • Great video!! I needed this info! As I struggle to feel certain muscles working too. Jason I noticed watching your channel for 3 weeks you follow the bar/weight with your eyes some times making you nod up and down, I just wondered if this is part of your technique? As most instructors at my gym tell you to keep your head up and straight while performing and excersize.

  • I noticed my heart skips a beat every couple of beats. I used to smoke cigs (not often) so I’ve quit that. I have had a heart murmur since I was born so I don’t know if it’s me just realizing my heart skipping or what but I’m freaked out

  • my weakpoint is def rear delts and bicep. working on my rear delts snd bicep already for 6months in my cut and finally got the mind muscle connection and my biceps and rear delts are getting better;)

  • I am a 50 year old man that was diagnosed with congestive heart failure 3 years ago. My cardiologist put me on 3 medications for my condition. My heart was too weak when first diagnosed so he introduced one med each month. Starting the day I started taking all 3, I started having issues with blood in my stool. I told him about it immediately and his response was it’s just going to take your body time to adjust. It’s 3 years later and it’s progressively worse and still he has done nothing to correct the issue. A year ago I had an appointment but he was overbooked so he sent me to see one of his colleagues. While I was in the examining room his colleague did a conference call telling him that I was really not doing well and told him to get me off those meds and onto this other med. My cardiologist chose to ignore his recommendation and kept increasing, decreasing the strength dosage. I’m at my wit’s end because I’m tired of feeling bad all the time and over the bleeding.

  • My chest starts burning and I feel like I can’t breath, but I also need to train for a Marathon in November 2020 for diabetes, and I can’t keep stopping, how can I get back to a full run for 26.1 miles?

  • one of the best videos in the fitness community! After years of beating my body to ground, after years and years of jumping from program to program, getting hurt in BJJ rolls, and finally facing that I’m a novice, I would highly advise everyone to watch this and share it with anyone they know who is on the strength and fitness journey. No one is above the process. Thanks for the great video

  • I had a different tab open while listening to this video and when he said unicorn coffee, I was like what does that mean?… and I googled it

  • Some people that go into the gym thinks that they have to bomb or blast a body part… that’s not always true… a muscle can also be coaxed along!

  • Great info,my problem whas activation especially weak Points the lats and and Eugene helped me with the lat activation video,the partial side leterals from you,and Ben Pakulski ‘s muscle activation video’s thanks.

  • As usual, really intelligent and high level instruction, delivered with a touch of humor…keep up the teaching Jason…Thank you so much for sharing

  • Hey man, something that has been on my mind lately. A friend of mine is a plumber, he works with his hands all day, also carrying heavy stuff whether it’s smaller things like his tools or literally hefting boilers around. He’s been doing it for over fifteen years I gather, and his hands are massive. Looks like he is wearing gardening gloves under his skin. Really powerful grip strength, he makes my hands look like Twiglets stuck to little muffins.

    So the question is, why is it that the principles of over training doesn’t seem to apply in this instance? I mean he’s working five or six days a week for long hours, it’s not like he just trains his grip two or three times a week then rests “to let the muscle fibres grow.” I’m sure this is seen with loads of people working in construction or other manual jobs, but seems to run totally in opposition of what we learn about building muscle in the gym. Cheers.

  • I’m going to the gym after watching this. Your right about what feels right. Some things like incline fly’s or preacher curls will never feel right to me after 10 years lifting

  • Anyone know why my elbow pops and hurts when i extend it fully with a supinated grip? Its always hitched a little on full extension but would pop past it and be good for a while.

  • I have a nutrition question. In my experience, I have found that I eat healthier and can train harder when I don’t use supplements, but I keep hearing and reading that we need to use supplements. Am I doing something wrong?
