What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. How about a bodyweight workout that all dependson the outcome of the Super Bowlé Well, that's what we've got here today. Now whether you're watching this tutorial beforethe Super Bowl, during the Super Bowl or after the Super Bowl, you're going to have your work cut out foryou because your workout is going to depend upon what the score of the game is. Now, the average person that watches the SuperBowl will consume on Super Bowl Sunday 2,400
extra calories. That's a lot of calories. So, you can either try to do this during thegame as I'll show you here, or you do it any day after the game, matter of fact, when the game is over, I will post the scoreright here and you'll know exactly what you're going to have to do for the workout basedon what I'm going to describe to you now. So, basically the old Super Bowl pools thatyou're familiar with, you have all the numbers across, zero through nine, zero through nine,one for each team. In this case, Super Bowl 49, the New EnglandPatriots and the Seattle Seahawks. In these
typical pools, you've filled out a box. The numbers get pooled. You have 2 numbers,the last digit in the score, that's what the number is, that's whether or not you win thepool. Well, in this case, oh, you're going to winall right, but you're going to win some bodyweight exercises that you're going to have to do,50 of each one. For zero, we have Archers. You can see medemonstrating here the Archer. You're going to do 50, ok. That 25 to the right, and 25to the left. The numeral 1 here, Hannibal Push Ups. Toughexercise, but this is not an easy workout.
We've got 50 Hannibal Push Ups. Number 2. Scissor Jack Burpees. A right leg,a left leg, switch down to a Burpee. come back up explosive, hard exercise. Number 3. Stair Jumps. If you're working outat home, and you don't have a bench to jump on, pick 2 steps and jump up on those. If you're really just starting out, try topick on just the bottom step and jump up on that. Next one, Number 4, one of the best bodyweightexercises, Pull Ups. Now, if you don't have
somewhere that you can do Pull Ups in a doorway, you should invest in a bar, but if you don't,you could always Pull Up underneath a countertop or an overhang in your house if you have one. Again, buy a Pull Up Bar, they're like 10bucks. The Next thing, Number 5. Single Leg Landmines. Each leg, 50. Ok, So here, demonstrating what it looks like,an explosive lower body movement, 50 coming up on the right, 50 coming up on the left. Next, Number 6. An ab exercise, Hanging LegRaises. Again, a tough exercise. If you're
just starting out, you might want to lightenup that weight that you have to lift. Pull the knees in and do hanging Knee Raisesinstead, but 50 nonetheless. Number 7. Side Kickthroughs. Here, you'vegot 50 on each leg as I demonstrate again this quickfoot, quicktransitional exerciseon the ground athletic. Aim for 50 to each side. Next up, Number 8. Dragon Thrusts. Anothertough ab exercise focusing on that lower ab strength. You're going to kick up and out. Try to makesure that you don't sag in your low back.
How Much Muscle Can You Gain Naturally And How Fast
What's going on, guys. Sean Nalewanyj here, SeanNal BodyTransformationTruth and the question today is how much muscle can you gain naturally and in what timeframeé Now, this is actually a very difficult questionto answer, simply because the numbers can vary so much from person to person dependingon a lot of different factors. So keep in mind that any answer that you getfrom anybody on this topic is always just going to be a rough approximation. That said, having an overall ballpark figurein mind will at least give you some accurate
expectations, so that number one: you don'tget scammed out of your money by bullshit supplements or miracle programs or other productsthat give you totally unrealistic ideas of how much muscle you can gain over a specifictimeframe. Number two: so that you can set practicalachievable goals and stay on track with your plan, rather than just program hopping fromone plan to the next like so many people do because you were convinced that your programisn't working that you should be making faster gains. So how much muscle can you gain naturallyé
Again, ballpark figure, but assuming you'reon a properly structured program and you're following it consistently, guys ranging fromslightly below average genetics to slightly above average genetics are probably goingto be capable of building somewhere between, and I noticed this is a pretty wide range,but probably somewhere between about twenty to forty pounds of actual lean muscle massnaturally. Now your body weight can obviously go up bymore than that because you'll always gains some body fat while you're bulking and you'llbe holding on to additional water weights in the process, so it does depend on whatkind of look you're going for.
But in terms of actual lean muscle mass that'sa pretty safe range I would say. So if you have average genetics, then you'llprobably land somewhere in the middle at about thirty pounds of muscle. Slightly below average, maybe around twentypounds. Slightly above average maybe around fortypounds. And females can take those numbers and reducethem by about half. Again, I know it's kind of a wide range,but like I said, there's really no way of say exactly how much muscle any specific personis going to be capable of building.
And around thirty pounds, give or take, willprobably cover the majority of the lifting population. And then in addition to that you're alsogoing to have small percentage of genetic outliers, who're going to fall on the moreextreme ends of the spectrum. Meaning that you'll have guys with a particularlypoor muscle building genetics who might only able to gain, say ten pounds of muscle orless, regardless of what they do. Unfortunately that is the case for some people. But again, it's only a very small percentage.
And then on the far other side you're goingto have another very small percentage with exceptionally good muscle building genetics,who might be able to gain upward to, say fifty pounds of muscle. Again, this is just an educated guess butit at least gives you some sort of realistic idea to work with. I've seen a lot of other figures thrownaround online and in my opinion a lot of them really overestimate what's realistic orat the very least they overestimate what's realistic while staying at a decently leanbody fat percentage.
6 Muscle Gaining Mistakes SLOW OR NO GROWTH
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavalier, AthleanX . Today I'm dishing out the truth to the reasonswhy you might not be building muscle. I think I'm more qualified here to speak about thistopic than anybody because I lived that. I lived those problems, I've had those samestruggles. I couldn't build muscle. This was actually me. You guys have asked to see whatI looked like. This is me. I dug up some old footage the other day. I was looking throughsome old home movies. That's me, in high school. Painfully thin,unable to put on muscle. Things have changed for me though, because I've learned from alot of my mistakes. I think if I can talk
about some of those mistakes then you mightbe able to avoid them, too. The very first thing that I learned quickly,early on was that I was overtraining. Overtraining, I've talked about in many tutorials before. It'sa very real thing and a very real thing that sets up a roadblock for many guys that considerthemselves to be hard gainers, or just unable to add muscle. You see, we always think that more is better.We've been conditioned in this society to think that more is better. When it comes totraining, more is not better. More is not better. Only the right amount of the righttype of training is better. As soon as you
start going down that path you become evenmore likely to continue to go down that path because you try more and that doesn't work. So what do you doé You do even more, and thenyou do even more. Before you know it you're doing 55 sets for chest alone and your chestlooks like shit. So you want to try to follow and find the fastest way for you to cut backon what you're doing. If you're going to train â€“ this is a very important point, this tutorialencapsulates what we're all about here at AthleanX. If you're going to be a drug free, unassistedlifter then you'd better find ways to enhance
your recovery. Most of us are not able to.Without the assistance of drugs, we're unable to recover nearly fast enough to allow ourselvesto go back to that gym to do another 55 sets, and another 55 sets and we wind up hittinga wall. It's a very real wall. Don't let anybodytell you differently. There is a wall that you hit hormonally, neurologically. You can'ttrain. You can't even bring the effort that you need to produce the gains that you'retrying to see. That leads me to my next point. Guess what most people do wrong when they'retrying to build muscleé You may be shocked when is ay this; you'reundertraining. How can you be undertraining
and overtrainingé Because undertraining iswhen you show up at the gym thinking that just by walking into the gym and gracing everyonewith your presence, swiping your gym card, grabbing your protein shake and then headingover the leg extension machine that you're going to build muscle. If you head to a gym and your goal is to countreps, count to 12 over and over and over again I could save you a trip. You could have stayedhome and counted with Sesame Street as opposed to going to the gym and wasting gas if that'sall you're going to do. The numbers that you're doing in the gym, the reps that you're countingdon't mean shit. If you want to build muscle,
the only thing that ever matters is the intensitythat you're bringing to those numbers. If you're at 12 and it seems like you're tryingto lift a house on the 12th rep and you've got nobody around to help you, that's a goodeffort. If you're at 12 and you're doing this and you're looking around and you're puttingthe weights down and waiting, you go back and can do it again and you're looking forwardto the next set, you go down and you're looking forward to the next set just because it'ssooner for you to get out of the gym; you're not training with nearly the intensity thatyou need to make changes. So how do you manipulate the twoé How do youmanage the twoé It's actually kind of easy.
