Last weekend I was in Washington D.C. at Yanik Silver’s Underground 6 internet marketing event.  I got a chance to hang out with good fitness friends Craig Ballantyne, Mike Geary, Joey Vaillancourt and got to hang out with my Spanish and German business partners too.  If you ever get a chance to go the Gaylord National Harbor.  It’s beautiful!

In this first video, Shoulder Training Tips With Dumbbells you’ll learn

  • The number one reason you can do anything in life.
  • What you can learn from working out in the gym – that no body has told you yet.
  • Exercises I use while I travel to keep my good looks 🙂
  • The correct way to make a weight feel heavier.
  • The one question you must ask yourself to make your workout more difficult.

  21. Hey vince,
    Great ideas in the videos. Im new to the "bodybuilding scene" Iand i really like the stuff ive been reading. I also read Jeff anderson the muscle nerds stuff and you guys just have lots of good things to say. I wish more people in the gym would look into what you guys are saying i see so many people using momentum or lifting way more weight than they can handle and im really small still only 5'4:" 130 pounds and 12% body fat so until i actually get bigger which im working on chances of these people listening to what i tell them is slim to nothing. Anyways thanks for all the great advice. Like you said i try to apply this to my life outside the gym as well just in being really dedicated to my bible reading and church and my christian life.

    also in your shoulder video i just wanted to say i noticed a kid playing on gym equipment in the background. Thankfully there arnet any kids at the gyms i goofing off like that where i workout. They could really get hurt.

  22. Thank you. Never actually though of putting a twist in my movements on the dumbells. nobody in the gym has either, apparently.
    I like your videos, even the small errors that give it that edge of truth (see camera guy, talking enough to throw breathing cycle off, losing breath for nerves, talking too fast.)
    I've also found that the opposite is true…If you can break out of the work rut, and start excelling, you can excel in other parts of your life.
    Now the big question…Will your program work for me? I need to LOSE somewhere around 30-40 lbs, but I do not want to end up looking like a bag of prunes while doing so.
    Cheers from a displaced Niagaran

  24. Your tricep workout reminds me of the system called Positions of Flexion. It was written by Steve Holman of IronMan Magazine.

    Thanks for the good videos.

  25. Your analogy of gym to the rest of life is absolutely true. I started training a year and a half ago, and never saw meaningful results from it until I stopped listening to canned advice and fitness mags and found programs that were designed for people like me, by people who had achieved what I wanted to grasp. Up until then, it was just an unpleasant chore.

    Funny thing… the exact same was true of my career. Stalled until I quit being complacent and following the set path, and broke out to do something scary and extraordinary, to advance my goals. Same with relationships, same with spiritual life. Constant growth requires constant effort, change, and consistent focus on both the process and the prize.

    Like Musashi said, once you master one thing, you've mastered ten thousand things. Health and fitness is as good a place to start as anywhere. (Probably one of the best, if you like the whole Kundalini Equation way of looking at personal development)

  28. BTW, for the past month I have been starting to keep detailed records on the weights that I use ror my primarily unilateal(and some bilateral) training that I do.

    In a little more than a month, I have gained almost three pounds of muscle and my clothes are starting to get tighter in the chest and shoulder area:) I currently weigh 185 lbs and my eventual end goal is 220-230 lbs. Internediate goal is 200 lbs

    Anyway, I do enjoy watching your vids and I am already doing variations on some of the exercises that you do:)

    I was wondering; how tall are you?

  30. Really good tips, but PLEASE get your breathing right, especially on the shoulder video. You're holding your breath on the lift. Your breathing is correct in the tricep video, so I know you know how to do it!! I'd like to share these videos with some kids, but then I'd have to explain that they should emulate the lifts, but not the breathing. Thanks!

  31. I don't like Hameed Bhatti's comment (2nd comment above). He/she sounds like they have all theoretical knowledge and no real knowledge.

    Great analogy to relate gym success to out-of-gym success; I plan on doing that.

    • If you want to cut your body… you have a few choices:

      1. a chain saw
      2. kitchen knife
      3. whip

      I haven't experiemented with any of those methods but eating really clean helps too.

  32. Hey Vince, great video and workout again. When I try to do giant sets like that, I get really tired after the first giant set. What typically happens is I'll get 10-10-10 on the first giant set, then something like 6-4-6 on the second even though the first giant set wasn't that hard to do. You think giant sets are too advanced for my body or maybe its my CNS?

  34. I have two questions for you.

    1. I watched both videos but didn’t see the hint of what the surprise is that’s happenning on April 6th…….

    2. You mentioned several times that using heavy weights is very hard on your joints and it’s best not to use heavy weights.   However, if you don’t use heavy weights how are you supposed to increase your absolute strength?    As fas as I’m concerned – increasing absolute strength is the most important reason to lift weights.  Ofcourse it’s not the only reason, but it’s the most important simply because if you’re very strong your whole life is so much better.

    How do you address this concern if you advocate not using heavy weights?   How can you “go beyond your genetic barriers” if you don’t use heavy weights?

    • Did you read the 12 Anabolic Targets repot? Heavy weights is one of the targets 100%.

      It's just not the only way to build muscle. It's 1 of 12 ways. Read the report
      http://www.maximizeyourmuscle.com

      On April 6th, I'm releasing my brand new MONTHLY program, Maximize Your Muscle… the price to try out the program is the surprise… trust me, this is the biggest good news of 2010!

  37. Thanks for the videos! I usually try leaning the other way with lateral raises so that the delts are more maximally stretched when I start and so I avoid going high enough to impinge my rotator cuff. I can see how leaning this way can lead to maximal peak contraction. This is similiar to how I do my curls-first upright then with dumbbells on the bench with a slight incline for maximal stretch on the long head, then kneeling, reaching up to the lat pulldown bar and curling to behind my head.

  39. Hey Vince, love your stuff! Gotta tell you though, your "pre-stretch" theory of the side lateral raise isn't very healthy for you rotator cuff (specifically supraspinatus). Your Deltoids don't engage until you are OUT of the pre-stretch ROM. Just my 2 cents. Can't wait for your new program to come out on the 6th!!!

  44. Hey Vince!
    Thanks man! Seriously, your advice and tips are awesome! I really look forward to checking out your new program! You are so true about succeeding in and out of the gym. I have been trying to workout and do school at the same time, but you know what? I’ve been at the same weight, strength, muscle levels ever since probably december! Not only that, but I have only passed one of my big tests this year! It’s really been hard for me, but I think you may have the answer for my fitness goals.
    Thanks a bunch, man!

  45. Hey Vince,

    As always, my man, great vids. You are absolutely right about taking what you learn in the gym – the hard work, the discipline – and applying it to your business ventures and daily life outside the gym.

    Very excited to learn some more about Maximize Your Muscle (and I know my readers will be excited as well).

    I was actually up in Baltimore for a fitness bloggers conference this past weekend, I should have snuck over to Yanik's even and tried to bust through security!

    We'll talk soon!
