    You don't need a surplus of calories to build muscle. You can build muscle in a definite and not lose a bunch of muscle for a cut

    Because you can’t emulate how heavy weights behave. When you are using heavy loads the bar will bend and whip differently, which is something you can’t fake with stunt weights. But in most cases using real weights is not a viable choice for filming. Even if the actor was able to lift the weights in training. You can’t make an actor lift maximum loads over and over again for 50 takes, whilst being safe and looking spectacular. That’s how injuries happen.

    Bruh proper OHP form does not rest on your chest. You’re supposed to keep it off your body. CrossFit presses will touch down but you can also use your knees to bounce with CF.

    Incorrect. You ALWAYS rack,- be it clean and press, clean and jerk, OHP or Push Press,- whenever lifting something heavy off the gound to a squatting or standing position,- you rack. Only exception could be the crosfit C&P move performed for Grace,- when the load is so light, the tempo so high and the aim is as many reps as possible within a given time frame,- that you don´t need to rack the weight since the weight is not heavy enough to necessitate a racking position. In all other instances you rack.

    I can’t stand Julian Smith. The guy is walking propaganda. He lies about taking steroids and falsifies his results through telling people he’s natural. He’s definitely on some kind of enhancer. 👎🏽

    @Joseph Izzo No. It's not possible to maintain that size of muscle with such low fat stores. Steroids don't give size. They give your body the ability to recover and perform at another level that natural people cannot. The more muscle you have the more fat you store up. That's how the human body works. Thinking you'll maintain this much muscle with such little fat is wishful thinking. Diet and exercise will definitely get you a great looking body and physique but nothing like this dude. Edit: I noticed I said that steroids don't give size. What I mean is the term steroids refers to a number of peds, and only a couple of those actually give size. Most just boost test levels or boost your recovery process. My mistake.

    David Porter ~ I’m afraid I’m not following. Steroids give size, not definition. Definition is achieved through diet. While I agree not everyone can be his size, almost everyone can get shredded. It’s harder for some than others but being shredded is all diet and will power. Most of us don’t have the knowledge to diet down to 5% body fat, but it’s definitely possible. To get his size takes 5-7 years of dedicated training but it’s also doable. The issue is most don’t put on the time required. Some train wrong and get injured (yours truly) and that throws them off the game but it’s not a ‘dead give away’ that he’s injecting. A person doesn’t have to use to look like that.

    @Joseph Izzo You can definitely get his size without steroids (depending upon your genetics) but his definition along with his size is a dead giveaway he isn't natty. You can't have his definition and size at the same time and be natty. You can have one of them, but not both.

    7:37 So true. Regardless how you approach lifting, you’re always competing against yourself first. In my experience, people love watching someone be their best just as much as someone being the best.
