In one of the videos at Athlean-x for lower chest exercises he's showing that exercise.

Reply mountaineer says: July 5, 2019 at 11:06 pm Seen a guy doing all kinds of crazy stuff on a big ball and on the floor. I clicked on this because today I saw an older guy jumping onto the bench. And I thought I'd seen everything. Patriots Rule the NFL Reply El Carlos says: July 6, 2019 at 6:54 am Damn, I still do 21`s. I feel like a dumbass now lmao. I guess it`s a force of habit, but it`s only logical that 14 of the reps aren`t even full ROM. I`ll stop. Reply Nogardo says: July 6, 2019 at 7:21 am Dude aside from him at 6:33 is just like: “the fok?” Reply Tetsuo says: July 6, 2019 at 12:25 pm Are you gay? Or do you just look like one? Reply beach bum says: July 6, 2019 at 4:40 pm i guess drag curls are out to? as far as 21s go you can use them on just abot any body part Reply Novice Gains says: July 6, 2019 at 9:52 pm Looks like fun to me. Reply God God says: July 7, 2019 at 4:37 am Not gonna lie i feel like hes boutta sell me a shamwow Reply shiver me timber says: July 7, 2019 at 4:16 pm Are you a trainer , because you look like you take more supplements than you actually work out Reply TechNaiSci says: July 8, 2019 at 1:29 am The tricep exercize works your lower chest tho Reply Mawhinney 2.1 says: July 8, 2019 at 9:49 am Are you wearing a sports bra? Reply Barney Stinson says: July 9, 2019 at 6:56 pm Scott, just tell these people to leave before they destroy any equipment Reply ninjaman1760 says: July 10, 2019 at 7:45 am you’re wrong about the seated barbell bicep curl. very wrong. Reply frog ilicious says: July 10, 2019 at 11:23 pm where the fuck you from bro baastan Reply Adam Untz says: July 11, 2019 at 3:06 pm Actually Arnold talks about doing seated barbell curls being a good acsesory workout for biceps. Reply Adam Untz says: July 11, 2019 at 3:06 pm I hate the way this guy talks too! Reply Adam Untz says: July 11, 2019 at 3:12 pm Hitting shortened rom for biceps is actually ok to do Reply Miki Maus Gamer says: July 12, 2019 at 12:11 pm Actually, the first workout is called jack hammer press, it acts as a alternative to the dips when working chests, but most of the people hunch over and it hits the triceps more then the chest. Reply Steven305 says: July 13, 2019 at 4:52 am Didn’t know you were in Florida brother, what county? Reply Nick G says: July 13, 2019 at 11:00 am The things you do for us man. You couldn't pay me to do these in public. Reply Azide Azidoazide says: July 13, 2019 at 12:01 pm 2:43 is actually safer than your preferred version. The back muscles are used at different capacities. Like you’re getting thoracic extension and your spine is also utilized.Also if you didn’t know full range of motion is cool but also most dangerous part of any workout.The shoulder press looked fun until your elbows kissed your lats. My rotator cuffs instantly tore right tf off Reply Lerron McDowell says: July 14, 2019 at 2:55 am I did number 8 today 🤦🏽♂️ Reply Mike Cantin says: July 14, 2019 at 11:59 pm As soon as i see the stringer i'm out.

Reply HM FERRER says: July 26, 2019 at 4:43 am This guy knows nothing, that’s why he looks like crap! Reply Jonathan Song says: July 28, 2019 at 3:29 am Bahbell Reply Big Cheese says: July 28, 2019 at 11:26 am For those of you who think the uneven bench is a great core work out you're wrong. I have spent the last year correcting scoliosis.. I tried it and it definitely did not help. You're better off doing pull downs. If your abs are imbalanced you will just carry it over with that movement I promise. So if it doesn't help with imbalances, this is not the way to load up your core unevenly. Honestly, there is no good way. You can try lawn mowers from all angles, but I'd still say you'll get more out of pull downs. Reply Cloud987600 says: July 28, 2019 at 11:35 pm Make a vidro on the pokemon rap you monster Reply Mutale Malama says: July 29, 2019 at 7:39 pm I’ll be honest, I do the tricep extension with elbows out and my triceps have definitely increased in size and definition. Reply Dan Howdle says: July 30, 2019 at 12:48 pm Love this video, Scott. The behind the legs tricep kickbacks had me CRYING with laughter. Reply Joe says: July 31, 2019 at 5:00 pm I've seen people doing almost all of these at different gyms, over the years. Reply Slaytanic Zaddy 666 says: August 6, 2019 at 6:16 am The people who actually do this probably mad af Reply Tanner Hammonds says: August 6, 2019 at 4:45 pm I swear to God, every time I go to the gym some chick is doing the "assisted" single leg push downs and it just infuriates me 😤 Reply starfish2405 says: August 7, 2019 at 5:48 am BOSTON!!! Reply Tobias funke says: August 8, 2019 at 4:26 pm I have seen the fakeout many times actually, especially on the leg press and the back squats Reply Hassan Khachab says: August 13, 2019 at 3:48 pm there is the idiot at my gym who I swear to God loads the bench up with like 405 even though I've never seen him bench 315 clean and sit there and then leaves the weight on it and acts like he lifted it Reply Hassan Khachab says: August 13, 2019 at 3:49 pm also and I had the tape this and put it on Facebook there's a guy who Lays on the ground under a Smith machine and does bench press throwing the bar as far as he can in the air and catching it with like no weight on it LOL🤣🤣 Reply Kobe Lewis says: August 14, 2019 at 4:03 pm Fake less press💀💀💀 Reply Joey Central says: August 14, 2019 at 7:44 pm Number 8 is very popular with the old women. It’s hilarious that they think they are working anything doing that. As for number 10, that is how my father fucked your his knees. Always loaded it up with every plate in the gym and then moved it like 1-2 inches. Now his ligaments in his knees are ruined. At my school gym, I saw plenty of foreign students from China doing just as stupid stuff as this video that just made them look like they came from a different planet. 😂 Reply aa dd says: August 15, 2019 at 1:25 am The things I just see today….. Reply aa dd says: August 15, 2019 at 1:25 am The things I just see today….. Reply farnumbp says: August 16, 2019 at 2:59 pm I like the last one. I will do that exercise with 500lbs on the flat bench when there are attractive young women in the gym. Reply Katrina Maree says: August 17, 2019 at 10:43 am Love it… and you remind me of Lochlyn Munro in Scary Movie . haha. I love that character. Reply WeStayFitWSF says: August 18, 2019 at 12:53 am This guy is trash Reply Parker Sullivan says: August 18, 2019 at 5:52 pm 2:39 “Benching Consistently” Looks like you could have provided a better clip. You were moving your feet and you lowered the weight in a very uncontrolled manner. Although it’s a small detail, it’s good to make sure all content is quality because you might mislead some people. Other than that, great content. Reply Ronny Cardona says: August 19, 2019 at 1:35 pm Are you wearing makeup? 😑 Reply I'm On Your Roof says: August 20, 2019 at 6:20 pm The Fake Out Leg Press is called that because it fakes out your upper body into making gains through the loading and inloading of all those plates. Reply matt lawton says: August 21, 2019 at 3:11 pm Hi scott, with bicep 21s, surely as it is creating metabolic stress it's helping muscle growth, I get what u said in your video and I'll try your mercy 30s next time. Am I confusing metabolic stress with a pump? Is there a difference and could u explain. Thanks Reply Josh B says: August 22, 2019 at 6:12 am 1. Seated Barbell……better than nothing I guess lol2. Hunched over tricep, this is to save elbows for those who have issues….though he does it odd in this video3. Wtf? LOL4. ….ok I give up lol Reply kevin smith says: August 22, 2019 at 5:06 pm Cheers for the heads up! I've been doing 21's thinking i was getting a good workout. Will definately switch to the Mercy 30's 👍 Reply Jason Hollis says: August 22, 2019 at 10:47 pm I just can't help myself but laugh every time he says baaaaarbell 🐑 Reply kilner79 says: August 24, 2019 at 8:37 am im no pro but locking out on the leg press …………. Reply Hercules Brofister says: August 27, 2019 at 4:22 am 6:30 getting some looks from the guy in the background lmao. Reply Alex McD says: August 30, 2019 at 8:53 pm Wow, it's like taking fitness advice from Scout from tf2. Reply Trey Ingle says: August 31, 2019 at 12:14 am This guy is a total tool Reply Shinobu Maehara says: August 31, 2019 at 12:16 am Then you need to wack the athlean x Arnold 21 curl Reply Rob F. says: September 6, 2019 at 5:02 pm Look at the guy at 6:35 looking over at him Reply Leon Castro says: September 9, 2019 at 4:22 pm Jokes on you Scott I don't even work out Reply Dieselx999 says: September 13, 2019 at 10:11 pm I've seen allot of ppl at my gym doing the single leg push down at my gym mostly females Reply BtownOG says: September 16, 2019 at 6:56 am I have never seen a uneven bench press. No way this is real Reply mads mikkelsen says: September 18, 2019 at 8:32 am haah! that last one with the fake leg press i actually witnessed a couple weeks ago! Reply Stian Kleppen says: September 18, 2019 at 4:22 pm You're annoying as f**, and in the process you're making fun of people going to the gym. Way to f**** go 💪🏻 Reply Kuan Lee says: September 19, 2019 at 7:47 am Uh..tricep kickback is not useless. And people do the "bad form tricep pulldown" to work their lower chest, not their triceps. Also I can't believe you just trashed Arnold's 21 bicep curls. Have you seen the guy's biceps? This is why I only look at your videos to learn the very basics. Even then I'm skeptical and have to double check with other sources sometimes. Because the deeper the topic you get into, the more unreliable you tend to become. Maybe you should do more research before laughing at something you don't understand. Reply zephiro l says: September 25, 2019 at 8:39 am lol all the people staring at you with weird looks is hilarious. Reply Gera Torres says: September 26, 2019 at 11:11 am what year we in? Reply ChunK TruffleShufflE says: September 26, 2019 at 9:28 pm I'm born and bred philadelphia, moved down to miami for a few years. It's such a shock going from the northeast to Florida lol Reply BiGG Scott says: September 29, 2019 at 4:35 am Skull Crushers: Military Press Edition!What part of Florida are you in, and what's that gym? That looks like a pretty good gym. I'm in Port Charlotte, and I hate my gym but only go there because it's so cheap! Reply Sydney P. says: September 30, 2019 at 4:24 am The one I've been guilty of doing is using the assisted pull up machine to step down… Ha! Thanks for setting me straight! Reply nyc78 says: October 5, 2019 at 7:06 am #8 drives me crazy! Everytime I use that machine to do pull-ups I have to scrub the hell out of the pad with wipes from the gym because there are very visible nasty dirty shoeprints on it! Reply Brian Dunlo says: October 5, 2019 at 6:46 pm with a shoulder injury I was forced to do bent over rear press keeping arm locked ,this looks similar to the silly triceps exercise shown but it feels effective for rear delts and teres minor etc Reply Mr. Saturday says: November 17, 2019 at 6:34 am Love to punch this guy in the face…it would feel sooo good Reply derek brackenbury says: November 24, 2019 at 9:17 pm Ooops, looks like Scott has been watching me train 😂😂😂😂 Reply dennie little says: December 2, 2019 at 3:08 am I can't help myself….why do people train biceps? If you're hitting your back the way you should your biceps should be wasted! Bicep exercises set people up for a injury. With that said, what about reverse curls? Great bicep accessory exercise grip a/e bicep. Reply Spec1m3n says: January 11, 2020 at 3:57 pm Did you move from Boston or some shit Reply Matthew Espinosa says: February 17, 2020 at 9:53 pm I've been seeing people at my gym doing the tricep pushdowns with their elbows out. I always give them a confused look and then start doing them the correct way so they can see how it's done.
