Yo, what's going on guysé Troy here with WeightGainNetwork .Tonight I am going to be watching my Oklahoma City Thunder win the series against the GoldenState Warriors. I don't know if you guys know this about me, but I am a huge basketballfan. My Oklahoma City Thunder are finally not choking in the playoffs. They're up threegames to one against the Golden State Warriors, who had the best record in NBA history thisseason. I'm calling it right now, they're going to win the championship, so hopefullyI don't curse them on YouTube right now, but they're going to steamroll the Cleveland Cavaliersin the championship. That is my bold prediction. I'm a diehard basketball fan. Literally theonly TV that I watch the entire year is the
NBA playoffs, so I am pumped to watch themtake home the Western Conference tonight. I'm also really excited because I just boughtthat yacht right over there. I don't know if you guys know this, but I make millionsof dollars making these YouTube tutorials for you guys, so thank you all for watching andhelping me realize my dreams. I'm going to actually start filming tutorials from that yacht.I think we're setting sail for France and probably Australia after that, so I'm goingto go on a really cool world tour, so I invite you guys in in my life. That is the officialWeight Gain Network yacht right over there. Today, what I want to dive into are ectomorphworkout tips. As you guys might know a quote
unquote ectomorph is a naturally skinny guy.I myself, way back in the day, was like 80 pounds. Actually a little more than that.One time I was 80 pounds, but I outgrew that and as I was a freshman and sophomore in highschool I was about 130 pounds, now I'm like 195 ï¿½ 200. I've had to try every singlelittle trick in the book. These workout tips to increase muscle and increase strength,they are things that I've actually implemented into my life in the last few months. I kindof hit a plateau and I really had to assess what I'm doing with my workouts, what I'mdoing with my nutrition and how I can overcome that plateau. I've made some really big changesto my training just in the last couple weeks.
I wanted to share them with you guys becauseif you guys are at a plateau, you're trying to increase your strength, you're trying tobuild more muscle mass, I think these are going to be really powerful. My first workouttip is my new workout split that I'm on right now. I was doing a bunch of different workoutsplits. I know I've had a lot of different tutorials talking about these workout splits.I did the insane squat and biceps challenge, where I was hitting my squats, hitting mybiceps every single day for 30 straight days. I had a little bit of growth. I've definitelyimproved my squat a ton. My arms are definitely leaner, but I was trying to think about whatmy most developed muscle group was and what
my least developed muscle group was. I wouldsay my traps, my chest and my shoulders are way ahead of all the other parts of my body.How I've been training them for the last couple of years is I just hit them really hard oneto two times a week. The muscle groups I think are the least developed, I think I've actuallybeen training the most. Just studying what a lot of fitness models do and a lot of theguys with the best physique in the world do, I decided to completely change out my workoutregimen. What I'm doing especially for my biceps and my triceps to try to jack up myarms is I'm only allowed to work them out one time per week, but during this one workoutI have to do 40 sets, so I literally script
out like an insane workout for biceps andtriceps and then the entire workout, I don't deadlift before, I don't do squats, I don'tdo benchpress, I don't do any other activity that's going to drain me physically. I focusall my energy and intensity on that one muscle group. I literally did like a 43set bicepworkout last week Monday and then I did it this week Monday and my biceps are more sorethan they've been in over two years, so just putting more overload, more intensity, moretraining volume and all of these different exercises that go into a 42set bicep workout,I feel like I'm going to make more progress on my arms over the next few months than Iprobably have in the last year to year and
12 Minute Workout for Muscle Mass HIT EVERY MUSCLE
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX . This is what happens when you forget to filmthe intro before you do the workout, but it leads to an important point. What happenedin this workout you're going to see today is what left me in this position right nw.out of breath, barely able to talk. I'm doing it with just a barbell and a set of dumbbells. Guys, you can build muscle mass if you wantto trade in some of that workout length for intensity. Let me show you exactly how it'sdone. Alright, so first exercise we're going heavy. Mass building the exercise. Start withthe cornerstone heavy exercise like the deadlift.
The deadlift, for me, it's a leg exercisefirst and foremost. That first push and pull off the ground â€“ it'sa push â€“ I'm pushing with my legs and then of course I've got my low back, triple extension,my gluts, my traps, everything helping me to power this up. Pretty heavy here for me.An 8 rep max. I'm trying to get heavy weights done quickly. Now I come over here, now wehave to shift the focus. I'm shifting to a pushing exercise to giveall my pull muscles and my lower body a break. So we're going to a classic dumbbell inclinedbenchpress. So rom here I'm trying to go for about a 10 rep max here. Now, there isa metabolic carryover from the deadlift that
I just did. So it's going to make what's traditionally,maybe, might be your traditional 10 rep max; it might be a little bit less. Especially as you pile up round after round.So, here I'm working on my 10 rep max, I drop down, and I grab one dumbbell and I bringit over with me to do a really cool exercise. It's a hybrid of what we call a dumbbell shovelcurl. The shovel curl is done with both hands on the handle and it basically mimics a crossbodyhammer curl. So we're working forearms and biceps, brachialis,but then we've got to make it a little more difficult by going over the top with our press.In the press there's a lot of core strength
and stability through your abs, through yourobliques, to be able to maintain that position. I put myself on the ground, on my knees inorder to demand that my core do most of the stabilization. I don't have the benefit of my feet to dothat. Again, about an 8 rep max. It's just whatever you can do with the weight hat you'vechosen from the benchpress. Now, I'm at about 1:40 for that first grouping. I take advantageof some extra time here. I don't want to go into my deadlifts tired, okayé Again, it'smetabolic in terms of what happened from those other two exercises.
They were not really impacting the musclesI would use here on the deadlift.t so they've had a good amount of time to rest and recoverfrom that. I just want to make sure I have my breath so I'm not doing this in a fatiguedstate. So now I'm back to, in this case, the 405. Again, drive up. By this point, the workout,one round in and I'm kind of geared up and ready to go. Of course, I started with a littlebit of a warmup to get myself ready, but here I am now in the second works and I'mcranking now. Again, notice that first pull is just a straightleg movement. It's like a leg press up from the ground. Then once I get to the knees;boom! Shift right into the hips and make the
hips drive through and drive your whole bodyforward and pull the bar up. Now, back to the dumbbell bench again. So you can see,again, there's a few elements at play here. By stacking the exercises the way we're doingit we're actually allowing muscles to relax and rest without wasting time. Remember, it's 12 minutes. You don't havea lot of time here, but I'm trying to prove a point. You can definitely build muscle massdespite the fact that you may not have that much time. Sometimes there are more challenging.These are quot;density workoutsquot; we like to say. We're condensing what all is done here â€“ 5rounds â€“ which is basically 5 dead lifts
Workout Plan for Skinny Guys Hardgainers THIS BUILDS MUSCLE
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX . I'm talking to the skinny guys today. Nowdon't worry, it's going to be helpful for all, but I'm going to get inside the mindsof the skinny guys because I know what the hell you're thinking. I've been one and Iknow how to get you a lot bigger than you are right now because I know the things thatyou should be focusing on. Today I'm going to tell you exactly what tofocus on in your workouts if you don't want to be skinny anymore. The first thing I'mgoing to tell you to do â€“ shocker â€“ is get your ass to the gym. Now, it's not abouttelling you to start working out. You already
know that. You're probably already doing that.I'm saying get yourself to the gym. Face your fears. Remember I said I was goingto get in your headé I know what you're thinking. You're maybe a little nervous to go to thegym because you're afraid of the ridicule being the skinny guy. You look around, yousee all these guys lifting heavy weights, grunting, groaning, intimidating. You're sittingthere holding 20lb dumbbells in your hand thinking you're not going to measure up tothem. You know what, guysé Screw that and screwthem because anybody at the gym that would ridicule you for the weights that you're liftinghas no bearing on you. It doesn't even deserve
your concern because that's a dick. Nobodywho's been where you've been at â€“ all of us have started somewhere and most guys inthe gym are going to respect your pursuit. They're going to respect the fact that you'rethere despite how thin you might be, doing what you need to do to change that. I cantell you that right away, that 99% of the guys that you maybe think are intimidatingare probably respecting the shit out of you because they know what you're been through.If they've been there themselves they know more than that. The idea is, make yourself accountable andface your fears. Unless you have to work out
at home for a particular reason then get there.I'm telling you, you're going to find more out of getting there because facing your fearsin just that one move of arriving at the gym is going to set the stage for everything else.Now, when you're there, the most important thing to do is simplify. Find one exercise per major muscle group tofocus on. What am I talking abouté Well, major muscle groups are your chest, your back, yourshoulders, your legs, and your arms â€“ your biceps and triceps. Obviously your core isthrown in there as well, but we're not going to worry about that so much. We're tryingto build as much muscle as we can. So of those
six major muscle groups, pick one exercise. I'll give you a head start. I think you shouldfocus on a bench press. Not necessarily with dumbbells because you might not have the coordinationyet to handle the independent dumbbells, but use a bar. Do a bent over row for your back.Do a squat for your legs. If you can't do a squat because you've either got knee problems,or back problems, then maybe try a dead lift. I personally prefer dead lifts more than Iprefer squats for my particular case for my knees. Do an overhead press. Do a barbellcurl and do a lined tricep extension, okayé These are exercises that have two things incommon. One: they're compound. They usually
involve multiple joints. We want to starttrying to build your coordination on these movements and allow you to become stronger,allowing different muscles to work together. The second thing is, they allow you to eventuallyoverload. So let's just look at a case of the arms. A barbell curl is always going tobe the heaviest bicep exercises that you will ultimately be able to do. You're not goingto be able to do more on a concentration curl than you are in a barbell curl. So I wantyou to focus on those bigger exercises, okayé Now, how are we going to break them upé Iwant you to start by simplifying again. I know that people will probably tell youto start doing total body workouts because
