  1. “FAST ACTION” Q&A* – Leave your most burning question about this video or any other training, PT or nutrition question within the first 2 hours of this video’s release (AS A SEPARATE COMMENT!!) and I will pick 8 to get a detailed reply from me right here in the comments. Answers will be posted within the first 24-48 hours of you leaving the question. Good luck!

  2. I recently saw a video—I can't remember if it was on your channel or another, and now I can't find it—in which someone did an exercise I'd like to know more about, and maybe get your thoughts. I guess you could call it a modification of the lateral raise. The person, standing, held a dumbbell in each hand in a neutral grip at their sides, and raised them, leading with the elbows, keeping the arms in the same plane as the body, so that at the top of the move the upper arms were more or less parallel to the floor and the forearms were hanging straight down at a right angle to the upper arm. Both arms together, then, formed a shape roughly like a staple, or a bracket turned 45 degrees. I tried it and felt a good contraction in my medial delts, albeit with some recruitment of the upper traps. Is this one, so to speak, a thing? Does it have a name? Would you recommend it as one to do for the medial delts in addition to regular lateral lifts?

  3. So I see we are supposed to go up in weight with each set to fail in a lower rep range.. what if I am failing in those rep ranges with the same weight on the second and third sets anyway?

  4. Thankyou very much for a true inspiration you and your buddy are true legends God bless you both for giving me the science in my workouts I'm 50 years old and working my heart out

  5. So I took to this and focused on the sets and reps because I love boulder shoulders on a dude (so attractive) and so why not on me? lol….But I had no idea how awesome it would feel and look, so Thank you Jeff!!!

    And P.S: your boulder shoulders are cute, sorry not sorry! 😏 🤪

  6. Hi Jeff Thanks for the very useful videos! I've been following a regimen of stretches from my physical therapist, along with rotator cuff, delt and lat exercises from your videos, to deal the arthritis of the shoulders. I should add that the PT has also been using a laser device that he says,, and a credible report from British public health supports, accelerates healing and reduces swelling by promoting blood circulation. Two months on shoulder pain has reduced substantially and range of motion is much better. Here's my question. In some of your videos you suggest that those with shoulder issues need to create room in the shoulder joint by pulling the ball out of the socket, so it doesn't rub against the socket. I've seen other videos elsewhere on Youtube suggesting lat pull-downs for this purpose. In other videos you've said one should push the ball back into the socket to create better 'suction' in the joint. I will appreciate any comments and suggestions you care to offer. Thanks again for the excellent videos. Rob

  7. "Did somebody say rear delts? You might as well have just said face pulls," actually had me lean back in laughter and clap my hands even though no one's around to hear it because of how perfectly delivered and well-suited to Jeff it was.

    I love the brevity and humor in this one, and I'm elated he intended that pun at the end.

  8. It is to do the exercises in a more efficient and strategic way to avoid injuries or at least reduce them, thanks Jeff, there is also an understanding of what the muscle fibers are like and that markers help a lot to attend to those points.

  9. Jeff please make a repeat video for the people doing cable crossovers that don't cross the CENTER line of the sternum…PLEASE…I'm in the gym now and see so many people thinking that the way they do it is correct when it's LEGITLY wrong…so much activation contraction and gains being missed out on due to STUPID SHIT THEY SEE AND BELIEVE IN…SMFH. THANKS
