Reply ed gosh says: September 12, 2013 at 11:27 am great tips Scott! Just I was suprised how big is the angle you are using when doing incline bench press. I was working with 45` , but from this video it looks like its about 60-70` .. What is the difference between these angles regarding muscle groups that are affected ? Reply Gauzl says: September 12, 2013 at 1:28 pm I go to failure on most of my work outs and on chest I never feel anything in my shoulders even a day after the workout. Reply The Wars of Reach says: September 12, 2013 at 2:59 pm Great advice thanks Reply Phil Bradshaw says: September 12, 2013 at 10:19 pm Hey Scott, would you be able to suggest a good macros/calorie intake per day for building muscle, I weigh 75kg/165 lb, I hear a few different opinions but I would prefer yours? Reply blipblop92 says: September 13, 2013 at 2:55 am What should I do when I hit a plateau? My flat bench press and dips have been plateau'd for 3 months (no rep inc, no heavier weight possible without failure). Also I don't really see any mass gains anymore.. Reply MrDardev says: September 13, 2013 at 7:30 am Scott as a beginner (Im training for 5 months now) whats better a 5 day split hitting every muscle group once a week or a 3 day full body workout? Would be glad if you replied 🙂 And btw I love your videos you're a true motivation for me! Reply BabyFace Savage says: September 13, 2013 at 2:35 pm oooooooh those hands.. Scott……….!!!! totally in love with you..! Reply Martijn B. says: September 13, 2013 at 3:19 pm Yooo scot! If i bring the bar totally to my chest i feel pain in my shoulders. I injured myself by doing this and when i was going to 90 degrees elbow position the injury went away. what do you think what i did wrong? im 15 years old maybe has that something to do with it. Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:06 pm Maybe you just need to tweak your form more. Did you watch my video I linked in this one about how to set-up the bench press? Also, are you doing the shoulder warm-ups? Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:07 pm Well, if muscle gain is your goal, do the split… if your goal is fat loss… then do the circuit training 🙂 Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:08 pm Try going for FORCED REPS, or switch to a strength rep range with a spotter, anywhere between 1-6 reps per set. Maybe even do a pyramid increasing your weight each set. set 1- 6 reps; set 2- 5 reps, set 3- 4 reps… etc Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:08 pm use my BMR calculator on my website. It is free! 🙂 Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:09 pm I have a new shoulder routine coming out that should really help you! #HTH All about the super sets! Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:18 pm there is a range for it. You just need to see what works best for you brotha. Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:18 pm thanks man! Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:24 pm Thanks for the support brotha! 🙂 Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:24 pm I havent tried it, but lots of people love it! Check it out! Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:25 pm Are you having a hard time staying lean because of all the carbs? Reply ScottHermanFitness says: September 13, 2013 at 4:25 pm I have been building muscle still and making lean gains. It is all relevant to activity level my friend and lately I have been doing a lot of work on the computer…. which isnt good! Need to get out more! lol Reply B says: September 13, 2013 at 8:43 pm Great video! Lovin those adjustable benches!

Reply 66mvb says: September 13, 2013 at 10:15 pm What ever happened to "Ask Scott and Sean"? Reply Shaine MacDonald says: September 13, 2013 at 10:43 pm Kudos for finally putting on a shirt dude! Reply M Zhong says: September 13, 2013 at 11:42 pm I think so, but i cant survive without rice Reply N N says: September 14, 2013 at 5:10 am Scott. You look so much like my business studies teacher, Mr Alexander. He's much taller though, just thought I'd share my two cents. Wow. 😀 Reply Dale Mass says: September 14, 2013 at 11:53 am Chris your chest is so shaped… My upper and lower pectorals don't line up evenly, how can I change this??? Reply MetalGearSolidNick1 says: September 14, 2013 at 4:47 pm My chest gains have always suffered cause I would always hurt my rotator cuff but warming up the rotator cuff joint like you do has greatly helped. I'm finally able to do chest without injuries and the burn set (usually my last set) helps alot Reply stevelau1933 says: September 16, 2013 at 9:39 pm I've done it for about 3 months, and it does help me cut up, and get more energy throughout the day. I don't think it actually helps much in strength gains, but I'm sticking to it anyways. After doing it for a while, it becomes normal. Reply ronen160 says: September 18, 2013 at 2:35 am Hey Scott – I like your videos. Have a question: when you are on the bench, it seems as tho you bring your feet back, and this makes your back arch. Isn't that possibly harmful to the back, and won't that work your chest differently? Thanks. Reply BlueIce3ne2nr says: September 18, 2013 at 4:14 pm Hey Scott! Im from the Caribbean! (Trinidad and Tobago to be exact) I just want to say how much your vids have helped me over the last few yrs! Thanks for all the hard work Reply tricepsish says: September 19, 2013 at 9:20 am ask her to cook some brown rice Reply Grey GooTheory says: September 19, 2013 at 10:51 am Great video! I really like all the info points in the 'about' section. Reply 후아 says: September 20, 2013 at 2:51 am Hey scott hi im korean~~ have a question.. i did chest work out every monday… First bench press 70kg 5-8 x 6~8sets and incline bench press 5sets and dumbell press chest press machine 3sets and finally bench fly … but my chest is …small Reply Ted SwollenBalls says: September 20, 2013 at 4:25 am Hey Scott you make a great point at 15:00 when you talk about your body firstly using protein for daily functions before building muscle. With reference to this point, I have been thinking of repeatedly stabbing myself in the chest with a knife after I workout ,which, in my opinion will force all of the protein to my chest and help me put on more muscle. Thanks for the advice, will let you know how it goes! Reply Luiz Chu says: September 20, 2013 at 4:59 am thank you thank you thank you so much for this video! helped me out a lot! Reply Rebassed says: September 20, 2013 at 11:45 am scott im unscubscribing , enaugh of all this broscience bullshit . you used to be good , now im dtiching this shit man , i suggest people that want some proof behind their words to follow icecreamfitness. the dude is legit . ditch this broscience mofo , and also you do G4P idiot Reply Rikana says: September 20, 2013 at 9:35 pm You an still eat them. Just reduce your usual amount of rice intake. Reply Billy Thavixay says: September 21, 2013 at 5:23 am when you are doing barbel bench you arent goin too low with your shoulder ?? Reply livepunx says: September 21, 2013 at 5:25 am what a gay shirt Reply Kukkeli Crazeh says: September 23, 2013 at 8:07 pm 1. Warmups have been proven to be positive no matter what exercise you do. 2. He never claimed anything about his burnsets – just that it works for HIM. 3. Slow negatives are just as he said. You want him to refer "The great book of bodybuilding" or something? 4. His 1-1-3 terms are correct. 5. In the food section he claimed no unicersal thruths, just what has worked for him ie. no carbs before gym makes HIM feel weak. Now tell me more about that "broscience bullshit". Reply Alex Reed says: September 23, 2013 at 8:45 pm Scott, you rest WAY too long between sets;) Reply JohnG615 says: September 24, 2013 at 2:39 am Nice video, definitely learned something here.

Reply David Elias says: September 25, 2013 at 2:55 am Hey scott, I recently started working out and I was wondering about your burnout set routine. I can only press about 35lb for 10 rep max at the moment. How much weight should I drop for each set. You're able to drop about 20lbs for each set, so should I drop like 5lbs- 7.5lbs or so? Or should I wait til I can press more before doing the burnout workout? Reply PorkN Beans says: September 25, 2013 at 7:24 pm That's how I ended up in the hospital with bursitis in both shoulders, didn't warm my shoulders up correctly. I'm finally heading back to the gym months later, check out his warm ups if you don't know how or you'll pay. I'm telling you it's no fun having shoulder injuries, I ignored the pain for about 3 hours then literally puked from the pain and nearly fell unconscious from it. Reply Masalmeh321 says: September 26, 2013 at 6:54 am The fear is strong in this one… Reply Shahir Noori says: September 26, 2013 at 11:41 am Hi Scott. My right side is stronger than my left so my left arm tends to fall back when I'm doing chest workout or shoulder workout? This has resulted in my right shoulder looks different than my left. I believe it is because of bench press. What can I do to fix it? Reply jimishmong says: September 27, 2013 at 3:31 am I feel you man! LOL im not even joking! Reply jimishmong says: September 27, 2013 at 3:32 am Scott is salmon meat good for protein? And white rice but i eat only about 1 cup or less is that good too or no 3 times a day sometimes 2 or 1 Reply mrkracky says: September 27, 2013 at 8:33 am @ Rebassed Go promote other channels elsewhere you tool. What he is saying is correct and if you had a few more brain cells you would know that. Does he have to cite everything for you, maybe if you got off your lazy ass and actually did some of the stuff you would know what he is teaching is right. Reply 1527384625 says: September 28, 2013 at 6:02 pm agreed but squeezing it would not create a torque Reply blancomeowwAG says: September 30, 2013 at 6:08 am I think he's just trolling you brah lol Reply greengreensio says: September 30, 2013 at 7:30 pm thanks for the video mate. i got a Q. do you weigh ur food? lastly, are u using MYFITNESSPALL? Reply phuongymy says: October 1, 2013 at 8:23 am I implemented the drop set for first set in my program. But i do 3 drop sets for first set and rest 2 sets as many as i can lift. Something do another drop set on the last set if i cant get minimum 8 reps out of it. Its been 2 week since and let me tell you. After every workout i cant do shit. It has never felt like this. I expect big changes in 3+ momths. Thanks buddy. Also can you upload your meal plan 😀 Reply jesse passons says: October 3, 2013 at 7:22 pm ive thumbed up your other videos cause they are just slam filled with great info, however I have to thumb this one up cause of the awesome way you point to all the pop ups 🙂 Reply Electric Water says: October 4, 2013 at 2:59 pm Adds thumbs down so annoying Reply Rafaela Mariana says: October 6, 2013 at 4:44 pm if you dudes expect to get ripped much faster without wasting a one another minute in the gym, then you have to look closely this online video SIXPP.COM Through eons of living in a land so poor there was little to eat but oats, they had as usual converted necessity into a virtue, and insisted that they liked the stuff.

Reply Viet Le says: October 22, 2013 at 11:11 am For me its the opposite. When I stayed at home always eating rice twice a day. But when I am living in western countries I dont cook a lot so Im consuming less rice every day now. I think my body has been used to rice. Eating less rice makes me feel hungry more often and my muscles have not grown as fast as before due to not enough calories intake (even when I consumed a lot of protein).

I haven't been to the doctors with it as i have heard a lot of people say the doctors cant do nothing with a shoulder injury. is this true and can you give me any advise? Reply gary piper says: November 10, 2013 at 10:06 am same applies when working shoulder, i cant use dumbells for shoulder pressing because again the pain becomes really bad which effects my technique resulting in poor form.
