Hey Scott, I recently found your channel and Im a bit lost when it comes to gyming at the moment, when I was 14 I started gyming for the first time and I went on for 5 days a week every week for 6 months and I burnt off quite a bit of fat and I was getting really strong and fit but I eventually had a collapsed lung which meant I had to stop straight away with gym and I waited a full year now and I'm trying get back into it, I'm 16 and in good shape, I can see my abs and my Triceps and Biceps are very defined compared to most people at this age and I'm a tall guy 6,3 and I have a chest from the push ups I did in the past before I gymed and yeah, I'm trying my best to follow your guides and videos but I can't access platinum so I'm gonna do my best just do eat only healthy and gyming similar to what you do and do my best :)

Scott_Herman

Hey Marco!  Why can't you access platinum?  The Push, Pull, Legs program would be perfect for you.  It's only $7.99 my bro!   and you can access my custom @mealplan app too!

Is my back supost to hurt me when I do the  Laying T-Extension? Pleas answer me yes or no and why

Fenistoteles

If your legs are NOT touching the ground, you can get pain in lower back as it's the possition similar to "Aqua Man". It strenghtens lower back muscles.
If your legs ARE touching the ground you should feel upper back muscles.

thanks for the added comment @fenistoteles!

I did this workout early this morning and my body is already SORE! I mean really sore! I know getting enough protein intake is important to help my muscles recover, and of course, rest, but is there anything else I can do to speed up recovery time? Thanks for any help! 

Scott_Herman

Foam rolling can REALLY help my friend.  I definitely recommend picking one up!  Glad you liked the workout!

Scott,

I'm temped to do the 30 Day - 400 Reps A Day Challenge! during my 12 week home program.  As a beginner would have to do the easier exercises, but I'm game.  Am I taking on too much?  Your thoughts...?

Scott_Herman

I wouldn't say it is too much.  Start off with 3 rounds your first week or two though.. then kick it up to 4 - 5!

Fenistoteles

Scott, what should I do if I can't go all the way day on close grip push-ups?

Scott_Herman

Try doing them on your knees @fenistoteles!!

Fenistoteles

Great idea, I can do full movement :)
Thanks Scott!

Scott_Herman

hey hey!  That is what I am here for!! haha 😀

Scott, can I do this workout 1st thing in the morning and then last thing at night, whilst doing my own weight training in the gym? I really aim to lose body fat, currently at about 20-22%body fat. I'm also using your nutrition plan, using the carb intake for fat loss (50-100g carbs) is this still the right amount for the workouts I'm doing for fat loss. 

Thanks, keep up the good work

Scott_Herman

yes you can... BUT... we need to be careful you dont go too far into a calorie deficit.  MAke sure at least ONE day a week you boost your carbs to around 200 - 250.  That is your REFEED day.  running at 50 - 100 grams all week is too low so you need a refeed day to help balance things.  your refeed day should be your MOST INTENSE day of the week. :-D
