    Questions to Scott

    November 5, 2017, 5:17 am

    Hey Scott I have been training properly for 1 year now and i am tired of this youtube bullshit and i just want some clear answers of how to gain muscle the fastest way. Hope you Can answer them.

    1. How long should my workouts be AND WHY???Anyone says this and that but none says why.

    2. If the answer to nummer one is shorter than my current workout min Would you then recormend chancing from a 1. Pull and leg Day and 2 Push and ABS day to a 1. Leg 2. Push 3. Pull split for a ambitios teen??

    3. I have seen your “How to high to low cable chest fly." you made for some years ago. And i did all you Said for sure and i remembered to put the shoulders up, then back and then Down                 (Aka internal rotat) but a woman at my gym told me it Was wrong and it would couse shoulder and back injuries and she told me to put the shoulder in front of the chest and leaning forward she also Said she Was a Educated trainer which confuses me when i Think of What she Said.

    4. do you believe in there is a max. your body can obtain in a meal/hour, and if so how much and why.

    Please respond

    Hey @nicolaisc50!

     

    1. There isn't a time limit that your workouts HAVE to be. It all depends on how long your rest periods are and how many muscle groups you are training. For example, my PPL program workouts are about 75-90 minutes, but have short rest periods. Other programs might have less exercises, but take longer because the rest periods are longer. Basically there is no need to go over 2 hours no matter what you are training (strict strength/power training might be a little different because of really long rest times), but just focus on the amount of work your doing and not how long your session is.

     

    2. I would definitely suggest a PPL split if you are a teen. The frequency and volume is AWESOME for gains when you are just starting out. Have you looked at my program? http://muscularstrength.com/Push-Pull-Legs

     

    3. Whenever you are doing a chest movement you want to retract your shoulder blades like you are doing for maximum chest activation. If you keep your shoulders forward, you'll probably end up using them too much to help with the movement. You can always trust my advice my bro 😊 

     

    4. Not sure what you mean here.. a max what?? If you mean a max amount of protein.. watch the video below.

     

    Hope that helps!

    Please respond

    While I agree with Scott's answers for you, I would add one clarification to question #1. While it is true there is no set workout limit, there is a limit to which your body can endure until the workouts become counter-productive. This is especially true when you are natural and as you age. The rule of thumb is to keep your workouts under 60 minutes regardless of rest time per set or rest between sets. This is because after 60 minutes, your Cortisol levels spike. Cortisol is a catabolic hormone which opposes testosterone and growth hormone and is the body's response to stress. When you don't use drugs and as you age, the time it takes to trigger a spike in Cortisol decreases.

     

    When Cortisol is low, testosterone and fat burning are high. When you are young (under 35), you typically can get away with an hour or two max down the gym because your Cortisol threshold tends to be higher. However when older than that, training more than 60 minutes is overkill. To maximize your gains, it is best to do 60 minute high-intensity workouts as Scott has shown on this site numerous times and in many different combinations - including PPL.

    Hey scott and Jmbioardi

    Ok so my workout should only be 60 min. max. and Scott is wrong here or what?

     

    Also another question: my ac joint and my sc joint are both visible. They have been visible for as long as i can remember. Also my bodyfat is pretty low and my rips has been visible as well my entire life.

    Is my shoulder injured or is it because i have a low bodyfat %. Also i have had a little of shoulder pain but not much.

     

    if my shoulders are injured does it has some negative sideeffetct other than the look. Also do you have som exercises to fix this?

    Like John said, it comes down to age a little bit as to how long your workouts should be. At the end of the day, most bodybuilding workouts (for a natural athlete) should only take 60 minutes anyway, with 90 minutes usually including a warm-up/warm-down.

     

    My PPL split is 60-75 minutes if you follow the rest times, and for most people that extra 15 minutes is fine. I would only start worrying about your time spent per workout if you notice you are fatiguing faster throughout the week, or if your eating and sleeping is on point but you aren't really seeing results in the gym.

     

    Unless it is painful doing everyday activity, you probably don't have an injury, and it will just be to do with the low bodyfat % and not as much muscle mass there as opposed to other areas on your body. Do you get pain there often or with specific exercises? How much pain? If you like you can post a photo of it as well.

     

    If you don't already you should ALWAYS warm-up your shoulders, before any training session.

    Warm-up your shoulders before EVERY workout. Push, Pull, Legs.. all of them. No matter what you're training your shoulders will probably be doing something so it's good to keep them mobile.

     

    Also.. for proper form with a chest press watch this video. You need to pack your shoulders when pressing, and if you aren't already, that might be what is causing shoulder pain.

    Hey scoot i am back again.

    I just started out a new PPL program and i love it.

     

    I have been considering buying protein powder however i do not know what to buy.

    Should i bot protein powder from MyProtein, Athlean X or your protein powder. AND WHY. Is there a difference from each company i need to know or is it pretty much the same?

     

    Also I have been considering when to stretc out my muscles. Is it before or after my workouts and why?.

     

    I have recently been getting some stretch marks right where my biceps and shoulders meets. However i only have them after my bicep training on pulldays and the upcoming day. Does it mean i am growing as fast that my skin barely cant keep up or is it just because there is more blood in my biceps after my training.

     

    Looking forward for the answer :)

    Well I definitely recommend BSN. I've been using BSN since before I was sponsored by them, and they were a company I trusted from the beginning. Nothing but the best 😊 You can save some money if you buy from here too: http://muscularstrength.com/Supplements

     

    Dynamic stretches (this is where you are moving a muscle/bodypart and stretching it) BEFORE you workout, static stretches (holding a stretch for a period of time) AFTER working out.

     

    If you only get it after training.. it could be the blood going to the muscle. If it is there all the time, it is because the muscles are growing faster than the skin. Not necessarilly a bad thing, and it should go away over time. But there's also an article here that you can look into as well: http://muscularstrength.com/article/get-rid-of-stretch-marks

    Hey Scott I had a question and possibly a suggestion for a future video? I have what's called Pectus Excavatum  or “funnel chest” now before I continue my case of P.E (Pectus Excavatum) is minor in severity compared to some cases and pics i've seen of others with P.E. But I know from experience that we are all very self conscious about this and was wondering if maybe you could touch on this subject and provide some exercises that can help us feel confident in our bodies along with targeting this “funnel chest” to make it less noticeable. Thanks again if you see this keep the vids up you are a huge inspiration for me also i'm looking forward in participating in the next 12 week challenge -Luis

    Hey @ghettodragon. I can see what I can do for sure, I'd just need to do a bit more research into it, but for the most part I know it's where the inner chest in particular caves in quite a bit, right?

     

    Obviously I think in many cases it is down to genetics, but if you wanted to work on building that inner chest muscle, you can put a bit more empasis on it with some exercises like the knuckle push-up (see the video below). So I would suggest including an exercise like this in your chest routine, while also focusing on building your chest as a whole and doing the best you can to make it bigger!

    In my opinion it's better with taste and it helps me with performance and recovery when I need that extra edge. In terms of price, most supplements are pretty similar for what they'll take out of your pocket. Unfortunately I can't give you any info on MyProtein because I've never tried it.

     

    Static stretching is good for recovery, to keep the muscle fully lengthend, which will help reduce the risk of injury. You don't do much static stretching before training because everything might still be tight and it can actually make you more injury prone - whereas dynamic stretching does the opposite.

    Looking forward for the answer :)

    I can help here. I like myprotein.com. It's reasonably priced, tastes good and has validation from Labdoor Basically, you find what works for you. You don't actually need protein supplementation if you are getting what you need from the food you take in. I like it for taste and convenience.

     

    Supplement, don't substitute.
