  1. i love your videos, very informative.
    the only thing i can't stand is how you exhale. people that exhale loudly like that in the gym always get on my nerve.

  2. I watch these videos all the time before going to the gym and would just like to say how much they have helped me. A year ago I got out of a rehab clinic for drink and drug abuse and was weighing 15 stone. Today I am 13 stone and it is pretty much muscle thanks to these.

  3. @ScottHermanFitness Hey Scott, this might sound weird, but I have a REALLY boney tailbone, that I have injured on several occasions, and it makes doing sit-ups sort of painful. Is there something I can replace this with?

  4. Hey Scott, I really need your help. I want to workout everyday and I dont feel any effects of overtraining. My work-out routine currently is, Day 1: Legs Day 2: Chest Day 3: Back Day 4: Shoulders Day 5: Arms. Repeat. I am wondering if I can cycle through this without any break days. Thanks alot!

  5. @deamfortier Im not scott, but. You could grab a Plate, and hold it above your head, arms locked. You keep your arms perpendicular to the floor and you kind of crunch on through while you hold the weight up. Don't hold it above your core… It makes it easier.

  6. HI Scott. Was this the ab exercise you were mentioning in your most recent weekly update and the one that "killed" your abs and lower back? Thanks, as always.

  7. Hey Scott, take care of your voice, okay? In the last couple of week it sounds like your're getting dysphonia. Just take care and take consultaion in time, if needed. It can get nasty…

  8. Hey Scott, Question: Any time I do this exercise I feel that I always engage the muscles that are the sides of my legs JUST below my hips. Even when I focus hard to control my core, i feel that this muscle group kicks in because im using it to hold myself upside down or something. Is this something that is normal or is it because im still not focusing enough on just my core muscles?

  9. could you got on a diet that makes you look more cut an RIPPED up_OILED up_JAMAICAN under the sun to give us an example of how your meal plans work.

    id suggest what i call a caveman diet: ((what u can eat below))

    tuna or grilled chicken; raw fish; quinoa; hard boiled eggs; raw vegetables and fruit; daily supplement. (*oatmeal in the morning*)

    do a lot of cardio to get that 5% to -5% and take fish oil to replace that bad fat w/ good

    THUMBSS UPP if you want scott to look cut even in the light

  10. I have an awesome way on how to do Decline sit ups that you will LOVE check my channel page!
    Keep up the good work Scott

  11. Hmmm, I am well on the downside of the hill. This man, however, inspired me to buy one of those situp devices and start exercising. Thank you Scott, also for the other videos. You are terrific.

  12. Hmm… ive heard that it is better to do inhale on the way up, as to strengthen the diaphram(sp?)… any problem with this?

  13. IMHO, it's not helpful to try to execute a move that contracts the abdominal muscles at the same time as inhaling, which tends to prevent contraction. I find it better to exhale on contraction, and inhale on the part of the movement where muscles relax.

  14. OMG if I was a dude I'd want to have his body o.O
    thankks for the vid my gym has this bench but I had no clue how to use it lol

  15. @ihgcddv you are correct. we must kill the bad fat and belly first to get the 6 pack. btw!but ye My international body building trainer also recommended this 7 food elements to kill your fat belly. worth watch here now ->

  16. yes I agree cant even believe it. i know the bad fat is the reason that stopping 6 pack coming outside even we work out well. Between One of my friend working in fitness field suggested me this 7 secret food items to kill our jelly belly. you can see it here >

  17. THAAANKS!!! My lower back was popping when I would lower myself down. I thought push through it, but it seemed that my I would have pain in the joint or whatever instead of my muscles being sore. When I tried your suggestions the popping stopped. Thanks for saving my back.

  18. umm i've not done these in awhile so my back kinda hurts.. does this mean i shouldnt do it anymore? I also go fully down and up.. wonder if that is the wrong way to go

  19. Sure is right. You are smart if you understand you need to eat right at your age to kill your belly.

    Listen the surprising part is my friend who is not doing much excercises, maintaining his six pack with this secret food items.

    if you are serious go for it now

  20. The tip to keep the face parallel to the ceiling is very important – we see a lot of people neglect to do that. Great video as always Scott!

  21. Scott you need to take this video down! People will get injured performing the decline sit up this way. You never arch your back on the decline sit up…that's a recipe for disaster.

  22. What the hell are you doing scott? Are you trying to get people to injure themselves? That this shit down immediately!

  23. Ok so on other videos they say roll the back as keeping straight is more a pelvic flex and will put huge pressure on lower back

  24. Master Scott. If my feet hook the top bars rather than the lower bars of the bench to do sit-up, is it correct?

  25. This is the incorrect way to do this. Keep your small back flat while you do the crunch, you will hurt your lower back doing it this way.

  26. Scott, I'm pretty sure dude that when you arch your back like that, it puts a lot of stress and pain there, you should really roll your spine when doing these, this will avoid injury

  27. Lovely video content! Excuse me for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you ever tried – Ponnordaz Impressive Remedy (should be on google have a look)? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for discovering how to pack on solid muscle mass without the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my work colleague after many years got excellent results with it.

  28. This is a very bad way to do a sit up! Arching your back like that during ab exercises is really bad for your back, and it won't even work your abs…

  29. Actually, Scott, is one of the few who does this to perfection. The visual demonstration is perfect, he just chose is words wrong. He is not actually arching, but keeps his core tight thru the full range of motion. Well done!

  30. Be very careful!! This video is not clear enough about the proper technique. Improper technique often does not hurt until it is too late and you have a back injury. Back injuries are very serious. Here are two videos that give a more detailed  explanation.

  31. Perfect, everyone is use to people doing situps the "shrimp" way where they curl their backs like a shrimp.

    Which to ME I think is bad for your back. But when they do it like how Scott is doing, they can only do maybe 30 at most and their back gets tired or fatigued before their abs.
