    There's better YouTube personalities out there than Stoppani imo. Kris Gethin, Layne Norton, Marc Lobliner are all guys who actually write their programs and in regards to Marc and Kris, formulate their sups.

    I'll check them out in the morning never really bother with YouTube experts. Definitely have to see how annoying Stoppani is, in my head I thought he would be sensible and straight talking.

    He comes off fine. But the more you listen to him and his "Army" the more you realize how pretentious he is. I'm sure he is a very smart guy. Just don't care for him really.

  5. I did his short cut to shred with epistane, lord have mercy that worked so well... even with average diet

    I'm a fan of Mike Matthews. The guy gives straight up info.

  7. Not everyone is for everyone. I think he is pretty solid and I hate most all "gurus". It usually is the following that is the worst.

    Going by his book he seems to know his ****. At least he doesn't just regurgitate stuff he's read in a book like most of them, he gives scientific explanations and backs it up with studies.

    Things like eating every 3 hours, massive protein intake and high glycemic carbs post workout have been debunked by the mainstream but Stoppani actually provides studies that show maybe that stuff actually does make a difference. These were the methods used by Arnold and the bodybuilders from the golden era so maybe he's right.

    The mainstream gurus may be just saying what ordinary people with busy lifestyles want to hear so they buy their books and watch their YouTube videos.

  9. Yeah I wouldn't hate on the guy at all. Can he be a little gimmicky? Yeah but his supplements (while expensive) seem to be legit as a whole. He makes good training videos for people who need them also

  10. He's smart to have such a strong presence in terms of training advise and nutrition. Beyond getting PAID, making sure people get the most of your supplements is going to get better results. Plus for some people it's a cult-like thing, like cross fit

  11. @Wedgylx are you the same Wedgy from the DA forums like 7 or 8 years back? If so, glad to see you still in the community! Sorry for the hijack. Good discussion everyone.

    That's me @celc5 ! Thanks! Still been working out, just not as much time for the boards.

    Just watched his training video for back, biceps and abs for the shortcut to size program and it was really good. He's straight to the point and doesn't go off on tangents like most YouTube gurus. I even learnt how I was doing dumbbell rows was probably irritating my SI joint. His idea of using straps on all back exercises to get an extra rep or two sounds like it could work too.

    I've seen several of his videos and he seems like a smart guy. I'd say listen to what he has to say and see if it works for you. If it doesn't, there are plenty of others out there.

    Gonna have a go at his shortcut to size program in a few weeks when I start another bulk. Won't hurt to mix in some higher rep training I tend to stick to low rep strength training too much. Doesn't hurt to try some new things.

    Yeah man. Don't let my salty opinion discourage you on him. A lot of people love his advice/workouts/supps, it's really mainly his "I'm the only one who's right and my sups are the only ones that work" attitude. Also his "Jym Army" is f1cking annoying.

    He may have some good tips which it sounds like you've already started to pick up on. For me it's about trying new stuff and seeing what works. I can't fault him for having his own supplement line either even if it is overpriced. It probably gets old driving people to other brands when you can just make the money yourself and nobody is forcing anybody to buy it.

  18. Jim Stoppani, Jeff Cavaliere and Jeff Nippard are my go to Bodybuilding/Fitness gurus

  19. Like I stated previously, I like his programs and his supp line a lot. I like them simply because i have used them/currently use them, and I believe they work. Not part of the "Jym army" or fan club but figured I would post this simply because of user experience. His latest book doesn't just have the shortcut to shred and short cut to size programs which you can simply find on bodybuilding.com, it literally has over 100 different routines that you could use along with a decent amount of knowledge on other topics especially those new to the weight room. I know this may sound like I am advertising for the dude but I highly recommend it. Even some of his tips on how to perform various exercises are informative and could provide new and useful insight.

    His books great for all the different routines in them, there's something to suit everybody. I watched a couple of his other videos and he is annoying in them, if I'd have seen them first I probably wouldn't have bought his book. Comes across like he's talking to a bunch of kids, very patronising and irritating.

    Everyone should watch his shortcut to size videos, even if you aren't gonna do the program, I got a few useful tips out of them.

    I like Jeff Cavaliere, never heard of Nippard.

  22. I use straps for all back workouts myself

    For me, its about being able to activate the muscles in my back versus using Biceps for everything. I noticed a huge benefit to my back by adding them in

    Straps will not effect weather or not your biceps get involved in the lift, straps take your forearms out of the equation so grip strength doesn't become a factor

    Beg to differ. Using the straps eliminates a lot of the recruitment of the flexors in the forearms. Activation of these leads to increased activation of the biceps

    Try making a fist without accidentally activating the biceps.

    Additionally, using the straps allows you to go thumbless which also decreases forearm/biceps activation.

    True. Hard to do wrist curls without your bicep flexing. Gonna get a set of straps before I start the shortcut to size program.
