I'm for gaining muscle because I'm not really fat but it said on the website that the ax2 is extreme so I'm kinda worried I might overtrain and not make gains. And I'm only 15 I don't want to overtraining my body to. Thanks June 4, 2012 Reply brozac1011 How come my order is getting declined every time I submit my order?

June 4, 2012 Reply abuladula Athleanx app would be very popular. Question: how can I increase my stamina during strength workouts. I get tired very easily during work outa but I know I haven't come to my breaking point yet. My stamina fails me before my muscle can fail. June 4, 2012 Reply NothingButNolan When I saw the video thumbnail, I thought Jeff was wearing a shirt for once. Good video! June 4, 2012 Reply Lucas Martinez he already has one. it's in apple app store June 4, 2012 Reply C -RBL6 i thought you said your muscle tears on the negative part of the rep, so if there is no negative rep i.e. "static push up" then how do you benefit from that June 4, 2012 Reply Robin Coke Good video, good info. Thanks! June 4, 2012 Reply Fernando Gomes de Freitas confusing!!!! June 4, 2012 Reply Zephyr642 the elongation or the eccentric phase of the movement is where the microtrauma or tears you describe occur, whilst principally responsible for hypertrophy or growth. The concentric phase or positive is responsible for strength increases, however im sure there is still growth in size from the positive phase and there is 100% guarenteed strength benefits to the positive phase as noted with many strongman, hope this helps June 4, 2012 Reply syms85 !!!!!!!!!please dont hurt me!!!!!!! June 4, 2012 Reply Ken Able In my 36 years of weight training, I can tell you that it has never been so complicated as it is today. Simplicity, basic compound lifts, heavy weights, full-body workouts, 6-12 reps, reasonable volume, muscle failure, 48-72 hour recovery, eating quality food…these things never change…Everything else is superfluous. June 4, 2012 Reply theredwon Ah, now that he's rehabilitated he knows better than to try wearing a shirt. I get it now. June 4, 2012 Reply Patrick Brozović dont get all butt hurt June 4, 2012 Reply raziel26403 I'm in the middle of AX-1, and I wanted to know if I can combine the Wolverine Workout with it. By doing one in the morning and the other in the afternoon or evening, I'm trying to put on mass to move up in weight class for MMA, or should I stick to one? And which one would be better? June 4, 2012 Reply edu243346 Jeff what's your opinion on people like Hershal Walker who does something like a 1000 pushups a day, and at one time Ray Lewis only did a pushup routine daily………are they just freaks of nature or what………just curious on your thoughts, because how is someone like Hershal Walker not overtraining? June 4, 2012 Reply Octavio Guevara I think you just made this sound way more complicated then what it really is June 4, 2012 Reply obed v I use a backpack and put in about 15 pounds June 4, 2012 Reply D Bechtel pretty sure he takes more than that . he reccomends omega three's, creatine mono, protein bars etc.. all things he dosen't make himself June 4, 2012 Reply baqshi jeff how can we build upper chest at home ??

June 10, 2012 Reply Navid Rahmati he just did clapping pushups with 40 pounds on him June 10, 2012 Reply Stefan Helstad This is correct, you should NOT train your abs every day. June 11, 2012 Reply Mux Thanks for letting us know! June 11, 2012 Reply rosesareblaack You don't need much recovery if you are in shape and eat high glycemic food which will boost your muscle recovery by a certain degree by releasing sugar in your body, supplying the muscles and helping them recover. June 12, 2012 Reply Aby Grewal abs are a thin sheet of muscle compared to all our other big muscle groups abs recover super fast. June 12, 2012 Reply Aby Grewal aahaha he said we'll see all kinds of gains June 12, 2012 Reply aaddepalli if u have not tried his program, then your are dumb. Go Jeff, i am on Athlean X for 8 weeks now and could not tell you how best i am in shape since i started your program. Just listen to Jeff and do what he says. June 14, 2012 Reply Pat Abs, forearms, and calves recover quickly June 14, 2012 Reply Pat Well, abs recover quicker than forearms and calves IMO, but those 3 muscles are the most resilient from workouts, as quoted from one of Jeff's videos 😛 June 14, 2012 Reply Rick K Love the video's – Thanks for another great post! June 17, 2012 Reply PriZmaGameing your abs as an individual are very small muscles. just look at one ab.not very big, so it doesnt need as much time to recover. not only that though, your abs not grow much, they just show more at a low bodyfat percentage June 17, 2012 Reply sharkcoy I have a question, what happens after you've completed your 90 day training? Do you do it again? June 17, 2012 Reply Spencer Knight jesus u know what ur talking bout. did the same progression for pushups June 21, 2012 Reply frank1nbeanz yes, if they actually hurt but when you dont feel it you can keep going, its big and strong muscle, plus work your back to get the full benefit June 22, 2012 Reply Laegna Core is the only muscle you cant ''over-do'' but since your muscles work in pairs you can strain your back. June 24, 2012 Reply 562jr562 if i do push ups with a 4-2-2 tempo would it help give me more chest muscle mass? June 27, 2012 Reply morganzy98 Abs are just like any muscle, they do need to recover. After a workout, rest them untill they stop feeling sore July 4, 2012 Reply vlad zovkic hey Jeff, I am a big fan of what you do and try to train and help people better themselves just like you. I wanted to ask you if you can do 1 handed push ups and would you be willing to tell me what i should to to be able to do it? I tried tightening my core and making my arms really strong but still no luck.

July 22, 2012 Reply Everett Carroll hes said in another video that the abs are like the forearms.
