Getting Huge While Moving Well

I just saw a comment on one of my daily YouTube videos that shook me.

It’s not that it was particularly scary or outrageous… it just reminded me so much of me.

How do you get huge while nursing your body? Is it even possible?

How do you treat that nagging shoulder/elbow/hip/back/etc but still have fun in the gym?

How do you sweat and make your muscles burn when you feel indefinitely injured?

Today I wanted to share a new video that shows how to set up with dumbbells for pressing exercises.

I’ve had a lot of people tell me that if they can get the weights up there, then they are able press them. This method allows you to get heavier weights set up.

This is especially important for someone who trains alone and has a history of shoulder problems. I might not want them pressing with a bar so much because of the restricted motion, but I still want them to get big and strong. In order to do so, they must be able to get some heavy dumbbells set up on their own.

As with anything, there’s a learning curve to this method, but I think you’ll love it. Give it a shot.
