    We're almost through The Fundamentals Training Series! Just 1-2 more videos and then it's on to nutrition and supplementation. If you're interested in having all of this information condensed down into an actionable training program, check out my Fundamentals Hypertrophy Program: http://www.jeffnippard.com/fundamentalshypertrophyprogram

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Peace!

    Machine shoulder press… or freeweight dumbell shoulder press… I think I'm sticking to weighted handstand push ups LOL. Love, from a calisthenics guy who enjoys the amazing videos you make. Peace

    as a newbie to lifting who watches that has no idea what you are talking about, what those exercises actually are and look. This is not really helpful as "fundamental training exercises".

    Greatings from Germany…. Feels like you opened the Book of Life for me….. all the knowledge it is incredible. You deserve way more attention ! so much money wasted on "wannabe" trainer who wanted to be very special in order to keep people paying for stuff….i will highly recommend you to other people arround me ! THANK YOU very much (comes deep from the heart)

    i cant do much weights for leg raises (i have a prosthesis), what can i do apart from weighter crunches?

  6. fabrizzio monsalve

    the hex bar deadlift lets you focus more on weight than on technique, is to prevent risk of injury (a little)

  7. analog crunch

    for the love of god can someone just lay out a simple 3 day a week full body incorporating proper volume and frequency. It seems like a 10-20 work set a week method is prescribed per week. So how can we hit full body in 4 or 5 movements tops while incorporating it all? I am not looking for cable flies and crap i mean can we bench press maybe mon and fri maybe 5 work sets per session thus hitting the frequency and volume guidelines? I dont want some crazy program with 10 different variations which i believe is very unnecessary.

    To make things simple, you should be doing about 80% Compound Exercises and 20% Isolation Exercises, get stronger weekly on compound exercises by either doing 1 more Rep or lifting 5 more lbs, and with isolation exercises focus on improving the mind muscle connection and don’t worry too much about getting stronger on isolation exercises until the weight just doesn’t challenge u anymore
