  • Good job Randy! Once suggestion….I over did it with squats in my younger years and my hips took the hit. If your hips go lower than your knees, you are going too deep.

  • I have been doing this exercise and works for me,
    Chest/tricep/ shoulder day: dumbbell press ( normal and inclined), dumbbell fly, shoulder press, dips, dumbbell standing one arm tricep extension, and rope pull tricep.

    Back and bicep day: Romanian deadlift, palms facing up barbell row, cable row, bar pull ups, dumbbell hammer, cable bicep.

    Leg day:
    Deep squats, lunges, box jump( increasing the size to jump to on the box with weights), calves raise with dumbbell in a small bench to press ot harder..

    Do that, and only need around 40 min of training to get in shape and work out your muscles.

  • I’m 13 and 175 pounds and do all of these workouts and a little more 5 times a week and two days rest if anybody has some advice that would be very appreciated

  • Thank you for your easy to follow instructions. I would like to know how to breathe though. Should I breath in while in tension & breathe out when releasing or the other way round?

  • 1:43 hurts so much.

  • Marc, Thank you very much for this video. I have been putting up with shoulder pain for months and it was getting worse and seriously impacting my lifestyle. I have been a Coach driver, mostly manual for 20 years. The linkages have not been well serviced in the main and hence the gear changes can be stiff.
    I have only been doing the exercises you show in this video for a couple of days and already I am seeing a marked difference in pain reduction, and scope of arm movement.
    I am so grateful for your video and frankly I can’t believe the improvement

    Rereading this it sounds to me like a paid commercial. I can assure your subscribers it is not, even I can’t believe the improvement in just a couple of days.

    Best wishes and thanks again from Brisbane Queensland Australia.

  • I would advise you to first take the supplements i suggested for three to four months. Before doing any exercises. Continue to ingest the supplements when training.

  • Ok, but what would be a good combination of these schedule-wise?
    Like reps and sets, which days to do what, and any other exercises thrown in?

  • When I work my chest if I’m doing bench press or hammer chest machine a ton of different chest machines I feel it more in front of my shoulders no matter how I hold my hands whatever I do it’s baffling to me this has only become a problem in life past year idk wtf I’m screwing up

  • Elliot Hulse would say deadlifts and dips; front squat and chin ups. I say kettlebell swings and deadlifts, muscle snatches, dumbbell squats and Farmers’ Walks.

  • bro i was sitting until my neck was hurting for 1 mounths straight for 10 hours. And now just ramdomly it hurts and the pumps of the back neck hurt when i touch them

  • Mam can you please tell me about the water which we should use after practice to pour our leg for the people who suffer from shin splints. The water should be hot or cold

  • Really, no pull up and dips?
    Weighted dips are great for chest, front delts and triceps
    Weighted pull ups are great for back, rear delts and biceps
    I could also add facepull and plank too.
    In the end 10 or 11 movements are enought for this job.

  • Ur right about the exercises but ur wrong about the reps n sets.the low rep range, especially as u, get older is not a good idea becuz the heavier weights could cause injury.U have 2 be careful lifting heavier weights as u get older, moderate weight with higher reps has been proven 2 increase strength n muscle and less chance of injury.once u learn the proper way 2 perform exercises u can increase the reps as well as the speed of the exercises.I still lift heavy it;s just that u have 2 change ur approach on the 1 rep max.

  • This video worked wonders for me I do them every morning and every night and as long as i keep up with them my shins dont bother me at all

  • Well for bench presses, I personally go all the way down till about 2-3 inches away from the chest and pause there for 1-2 sec before going up again. (I feel like that’s another alternative way of doing bench presses)

    For squats, you don’t need to go so low tbh. As long as your legs form a 90° when you’re going down, you go back up straight away.

    For deadlifts, I have no comments cause I don’t even do that exercise lol.

  • Squats, dead lift, bench press, press, cleans, dips with and without weights, pull-ups with and without weights, handstand push ups. Those are my staples. I know you care.

  • I do believe that the “over-over” grip for the deadlift is better for beginners. They’re so new to the lift that their grips can easily handle their beginner weights on the bar.

  • This is my workout plan.

    Warm ups: Jumping Rope 5-10 minutes

    Monday: Pull ups followed by sled push
    Tuesday: Cleans and jerks, bicep curls and sledgehammer workout
    Wednesday: Rest
    Thursday: Benchpress, shoulder press and dips
    Friday: Deadlift and farmers walk
    Saturday: 10 km jogging
    Sunday: Rest

    Finish each weight lifting exercise with a 5-10 minute cardio. I prefer hard running. Avoid the treadmill. Run outdoors instead.

  • Helpful video man. I just realized that I’ve been to that gym. I live in Louisiana and went to Wolfforth for work for two weeks. I love that gym, and yes, the music playlist is legit too. It’s a 5 star gym for sure. Keep up the hard work brutha.

  • Has anyone tried Custokebon Secrets? (do a search on google) We have noticed many awesome things about this popular fat burn diet plan.

  • thank you so much i’m a basketball player and i get shin splints in both shins very badly to the point where i have to sit out and now i’m doing these stretches and it’s helping me so much i couldn’t be more grateful

  • Angle up means more traps due to bio mechs..what certificates or full time courses on exercise do u have? If ur to high up its a modified shrug…exercise is now a science and u won’t be adding testosterone on top of ur synthetic test…also there is no hip hinge on a fucking squat hopefully anyone reading this can do a quick Google search and see its a different pattern entirely…im out.

  • You hit all these weekly and you will become a beast, no matter your strength and intensity levels at start. The only thing I would add is power clean and press 1 2 times per week. Great video overall, this is an excellent training regimen and also will burn a ton of fat due to the compound movements.

  • I was given 2 of these exercises by my physio but may I ask what happens if both shoulders are doing the same things and you don’t have a good shoulder:( thanks

  • Can I do these exercises if I have patella tendonitis. I have both (patella tendonitis & shin splints). I have noticed that toes movement are different in patella tendonitis exercises ( toes are pointed towards you) while toes movement in shin splints exercises are the other way around.

  • This is what I have right now ��I’m in so much pain. I have to take pain killers every day but I will try to do this exercises at the gym tonight so hopefully it will help ��

  • Just do muscle building with weights. Build muscles in your shoulders and take glucosamine and cod liver capsules. And incorporate creatine to keep joints covered with water retention. This will combat your pains.

  • If from a bodybuilding standpoint, not power lifting, and looking to incorporate the Big 3 to build size, how often should these be done? What type of split? If doing these, should one still be doing curls, lat raises, extensions, etc.? Thanks

  • Can you be born with it? What would that be called. Nothing to really do with running i guess, but ive come to realise that one of my shin goes out more than the other one. Would this help too?

  • Dear Doctor Jo, I am tremendously happy to have found your videos on neck pain relief with some key stretches. Thanks to you I have managed to cure myself of derealization/depersonalization disorder by simply stretching my neck I even cried while doing so. Thank you for the quality videos and keep up the good work!

  • What a bunch of dumb asses. Let’s have them inject all the oil they want and then have a pay per view at the end when they’re bodies explode.

  • Full squat, deadlifts, barbell row, bench press, overhead press, lunges, farmers walk. Bicep/felt: barbell curls, dB lateral raises. Who here does Strong Man 5×5.

  • I use to play football and I started experiencing this shin splint pain since 2017. It always disturb me during my walking, running and the course of the game. So many times i just walk out of the field after a few minutes of play feeling very bad and emotional in tears. I have been struggling to find ways to get rid of it until now i manage to find and watch this video. Hope this will help me out. Cheers

  • Am I the only one really struggling to relax my arm for the first one? Like I’ll do the movement and my arm barely moves so I’m convinced I’m unable to relax them.

    Essential Mass Exercise (EME) means Compound Exercise. Substituting the Barbell Bicep Curl with a TriCombo…
    Start with
    Overhand Barbell Bicep Curl transition into Military Press finish with Barbell Tricep Extension.
    Plus finishing with an OHP / MP at the end like at beginning gives Symmetrical Closure to the Mind.
    “Guns are best left for later when it gets difficult.”

  • Thank you so much for this. My physiotherapist gave me similar moves but not as advanced as yours. I’m currently in agony, my left side of my neck has never been right after a stint of rye neck in my late 20s. It seems to be more painful than not these days and the biggest problem I’ve noticed is when I wake in the morning I just can’t get the right pillow support. My left side of my neck feels small in muscle mass to the right now. How long does it take to strengthen and heal? ��

  • Hey Garry:
    These 5 compound exercise is this the one you use to build your big muscle.? These 5 exercise is it enough to grow my muscle?

    Thank you,

  • Your instruction is superior.
