  • I checked about 6 -7 videos on shoulder workout. This is among top 3 possibly the best only talks to the point ��Very genuine content. Thank you for sharing

  • The thing I love about your videos is that they’re simple and mellow; you show a good workout without all the bulls*it I see in other videos. Some other prominent BWF guys that post on YouTube hope to get an audience out of selling fear and anxiety (‘Why Your Workout is Bad For You’, ‘Wish I Knew These Exercises Years Ago’, etc). We’ve got enough anxiety in the world. Your videos are informative, relaxing, to the point, and you’ve got a great attitude, spirit, and vibe. Keep the workouts coming!

  • Anyone else here because of fuckin corona? My gym closed yesterday but no reason to get lazy. Best tutorial for working out only with bodyweight. Keep it up!

  • Bruh I know where he is at 2:58!

  • Is it bettee to eat white rice post workout than a brown rice post workout because the white rice is fast carbs and can help your muslecs after the workot?

  • Instead of doing these 6 week fitness challenges why dont you just workout regularly and then u would look much better. Because it looks like u like the gym and have gud motivation

  • I was 16 kid trying to get buff, now I’m 23. Thanks for the memories and introducing me to body weight exercises! I am glad that you’re back!

  • I love how you’re just like now do it without legs (smirk) now without the wall (haha suckas) lol great work man definately got a new subscriber

  • The question isn’t heavy weight low reps vs low weight high reps, it’s how much time under tension your muscles are, if you train very eccentrically you with 70% 1rm you’ll maximize your muscle stimulation and growth

  • Quick question: In what type of split does this belong? I do 3x full body now. Can I just incorporate this somewhere in the middle of my workout?

  • 2020 here, I always come back to your channel whenever I need a different perspective about workouts. It widens my knowledge on what to teach to my cleints.

  • You’re so thin dude. I train alot but also only get stronger instead of really gaining mass. What can I change to actually bulk up.

  • Someone tell me why are there people who always give thumbs down?? I mean isnt he the only person we can find for a healthy natural workout guide on the youtube? Still 800+ thumbs downx i dont get it!

  • can someone tell me why i can shoulder press more then my bodyweight but when i try handstand pushups as soon as i go down and try to push up my hole body starts to arch and i lose balance lol.

  • If you want cannon ball shoulders literally all you have to do is. A pressing movement for the front delt (incline bench/overhead press). A lateral movement for the middle delt (Lateral raise/Overhead Press also works this) and a reverse fly movement (rear delt fly/face pulls) Do that in high total volume and eat a lot boom you got it.

  • Sir, your videos are really helpful. This one I’ve tried and it’s just great. Wish I had come across ur channel earlier. Still better late than never. But sir what about breathing in this slow continuous movements? Can u please specify? Thank you

  • OMG!!!! I dont normally comment on videos or anything, BUT, that was the most I’ve ever felt my delts working. Going for the Bicep version next. Thanks a lot man!!
