THESE “FITNESS INFLUENCERS” ARE KILLING YOUR GAINS! | INTEGRITY IS DEAD


Hey, what’s up guys? I’m Scott from MuscularStrength.com today We’re gonna take a closer look at some of your favorite Fitness influences on Instagram and the workouts they’re trying to shove down your throats because they want clicks and views and likes Let me tell you guys something at the end of the day Yes, I care about likes but I’m not gonna put out shit content just to get more of them likes Don’t pay the bills you guys getting gains does and that’s where my focus is and that’s where it’s always been And that’s where it always will be now recently, I’ve been doing a lot more videos talking about the things I see on YouTube or fitness Fitness YouTube more in particular that I don’t like I don’t agree with I’ve been calling people out and Unfortunately for all these people you guys seem to really enjoy this content because you’re sick of the bullshit too Likes are high views are high so now we’re gonna start going after more people that deserve it because at the end of the day They’re making money and getting exposure off of people who don’t know better and taking advantage of people who don’t know better Really just really pisses me off. But what got me the most angry about what I’m about to talk about today I’ll tell you right now so Somebody reached out to me one of my one of my followers on Instagram and they sent me a link to an Instagram page called The organic twins now first of all exactly how organic these twins I remains to be determined We’ll let Kino body take care of that, but they showed me a chest workout First of all before we even get into the exercise that pissed me off There’s thirty two sets of ten to fifteen repetitions per exercise. Alright That is way too much volume for the average person to do when you guys go on Instagram and you look at these workouts and you try them There’s really not a lot of information. You have a lot of videos of the exercises There’s very little talking usually very little description but because the person looks a certain way you Think that’s the right chest workout for you to do to build a great chest at the end of the day the average Natural doing thirty two sets of chest movements on their chest day is number one going to take forever Number two, it leaves no time for them to recover and have multiple chest sessions throughout the week It’s just too much volume. We’ve talked about this in my only two series how to get a good chest workout You don’t need all these exercises Which kind of brings up another point of Do these people even really know how to put together a workout program for a natural athlete because to me it seems like they don’t Now the exercise that got on my nerves was this one right here. Alright, I really don’t like it when people try to reinvent the wheel just to get clicks I understand Instagram is a business and you need to find creative ways to Attract more people but to put out a bullshit exercise just for clicks Yeah, it’s helping you gain clicks the person doing it is gonna get injured and that’s where I draw the line There’s no reason why you should ever need to grab plates and lean back and do a chest Press like this. Alright, number one. You can’t go in as far as you need to the plates hit each other and number two These guys are chest pressing like this with their elbows all the way back and flared which is the worst possible position You can put your shoulder in if you’re even gonna do it like this guys even if you were going to do it turn your hands in and then retract your shoulder blades and Chest press properly. Even if you do it properly. You could get your hands much closer together than doing it like this, but Reinventing the wheel just for clicks isn’t gonna work with this exercise just grab a pair of dumbbells and do it safely now What made me so mad is one of my followers saw this video and left a comment and said, why are you guys doing this with plates? Why are you trying to reinvent the wheel? Why not just use dumbbells? And you know what they did they blocked them and they said we don’t like negativity on our page blocked Are you freaking kidding me? It’s called constructive Criticism constructive criticism is why I am where I am right now because you guys called me out of my bullshit back in the day When maybe I didn’t know as much as I know now, it’s okay be called out on things and if anything a difference in opinion breeds debate and it breeds a breeds an area where people can converse and learn more and talk to each other and Hey, maybe maybe there’s benefit to doing it this way that I don’t know about But I’ll never know cuz my friend got blocked as soon as he asked the question, there’s no rhyme or reason to it if you take a look at the entire workout I’ll post the link for you guys to see it granted I’m probably shooting myself in the foot and giving these guys exposure They don’t deserve after that bullshit, but the end of the day I know you guys will come back here cuz you’re getting the right information the Workout itself is full of fluff exercises that you do not need to do lots of flexing and lots of fluff equals zero games and now I started looking through the rest of the videos on their page and I found like one leg workout and What really threw a red flag to me which you guys might not see I’m sure 99% of you wouldn’t see is on their leg workout. They have squats, which I’m glad they do But the guy doing the squats has a belt and knee sleeves on to do like six to eight reps of 225 Why do you wear a belt and why do you wear knee sleeves knee sleeves help keep your knee together, obviously But it adds a little bit of a I wouldn’t call it a bounce but it really helps you get out of the bottom of a squat it helps you to push through the bottom and when you have A belt on that keeps your core super tight That’s why when I squat 315 I can do 5 to 6 without without a belt and I can do probably six to eight maybe nine With the belt it helps with the movement makes it easier So you have all this time to set up to film this exercise But you still need a belt and these sleeves to squat 225 because you want to 225 on the bar You can’t do it normally but you don’t want to look dumb in your own video. That’s what it says to me Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I’m just being a jerk but after looking at all the garbage on there it’s just a conclusion that I’m coming to and these guys have a lot of followers they have like 250,000 followers when you guys put content out to your 250,000 followers that’s a quarter million people you’re teaching how to destroy their shoulders It’s not right. I don’t care about clicks. I don’t care about views I care about results and guiding my community in the right direction, which is why I’m saying to all people on Fitness Instagram they’re gonna put out content and you’re gonna try to help your community and you guys do all these like three-page freaking paragraphs about how much you love your community and how Amazing your community is just like that chick who was on the news scamming everybody she made like how many friggin apology videos and Apology post but she never gave the money back cuz she doesn’t really care. She’s just trying to save her ass So it’s just you know, it really got on my nerves guys at the end of the day You need to make sure that when you’re going online and you’re finding information You need to make sure that that’s helping you and there are a lot of great channels out there I know obviously you guys always mention, you know Jeff’s channel on my page, we talked about Omar These are two guys that I actually really do enjoy and put out amazing content and even though Jeff and I might not agree on Everything and it’s like very minut things. It doesn’t mean I don’t like them where there’s informations not great We have a difference of opinion. It happens. It’s called life. That’s how we get better. That’s how we debate All right, so there’s channels out there that do want to help you But just make sure that when you’re doing your research or just make sure you’re doing some research Look at the content if you don’t think something’s right. Go ask somebody do some research on your own There is a way to figure out if what you’re trying to do will work For you and one of those ways you can go to my forums on my website Muscularstrength.com and you can just post your question there and within 24 to 48 hours We’ll get back to you and let you know. I promise so Sorry guys. I know I ripped you a new one doesn’t mean I don’t like you It just means that hey there’s room for you to grow and you can take this as constructive criticism or you can take it as you hate my guts at the end of the day I really don’t care cuz I don’t care about you.

  4. Fuck gymshark athletes

  5. "…you're teaching a QUARTER MILLION people how to destroy their shoulders", and you can see Scott's actually goddamn mad about it.

    This is why we're here.

  6. Best video I've watched this week. Thanks for your advice Scott!

  7. I got a back and knee injury and now I have to wear a belt and sleeves if I want to squat while recovering. Now I feel dumb as shit haha

  8. Not blowing smoke up ur arse but gd,no bs content as always,been following u from 2011 since a mate introduced me 2 u,im known amongst my m8s as the go to guy for info abt working out and ur the 1st guy id refer them to for info abt fitness and working out

  9. :13 GAAAH'BAGE

  10. you don't get to criticise others until you learn to pronounce barbell….

  11. How would one build for MR OLYMPIA ???

  12. I see what you’re saying but i think you’re reaching with the belt and knee sleeves.

  13. Bitch

  14. So much gaaaaaahbage

  15. I’m glad I grew up as an athlete and could see through the bullshit that floats around that my friends can’t see that’s why I started watching your channel for technique and workout ideas and why I watch Jeff for his explain videos for the science. Truth is it’s beginners who want this ‘new exercise’ to make muscle because they believe traditional workouts don’t work..

  16. Killing your gains? Nowadays everyone is imitating Athlean X for views and money!

  17. even gym coaches nowadays talk bullshit

  18. This dude really out of breath, I see you tren 👀

  19. Out here lookin like the sham wow guy

  20. Difference of opinion breeds debate, debate breeds conversation, conversation breeds ideas and improvement. Great vid man.

  21. Organic Steroid Twins. Not sure if they're claiming they don't take steroids, but they definitely do.

    I also hate when people say, "Why does it matter if they take steroids or not? They still have to work for it." I get that, but they shouldn't tell their followers they don't take steroids cause then people like me who will never even think about touching steroids, think they can get a physique like theirs.

  22. When you said subs I thought I would check when I subbed here, over 10 years old!! I am still unfit as I was then but still like watching your content lol

  23. Maaaaaan, wasn't expecting to see anything related to the pink drink scammer here, she's back on her shenanigans, she deleted lots of comments and posts to continue uploading vacations pictures and bad edited photos with her new boyfriend. It's amazing how the Instagram gurus got to the point of scamming people in such ways, they're not even innovative.

  24. 32 sets….Jesus. They'd have to pin quads that day, cus they'd be too sore to reach anywhere else. "Natural" my ass.

  25. Bro you can be FUCKING scary some times I hope I never get on your bad side.

  26. Everything you said was on point accept the thing about knee sleeves and belt, it doesnt matter how much weight one's squatting if it makes you feel better and gives you an extra edge of confidence to push harder without any fear of injury then why not put on a belt or knee sleeve nothing wrong in that I guess ! May be that guy who knows have proper chronic issues with his knees and lower back injury which he wants to save himself from.. dont judge

  27. in the end of the day 5 times

  28. Thank you for this

  29. Im glad there is people like this still in the world..Your a really smart and good man.

  30. 100KG with a belt and sleeves, why would anyone watch that…

  31. https://www.instagram.com/p/ByTA2t7jPik/

    ANNNNDDDDD they disable comment on that post ( only that post )
    Funny thing is the first thing came out of my mind when I saw the title organic twins automatically came out of my mind and the sec Scott mentioned them i laughed

  32. Hey Scott, being a health enthusiast myself, I truly appreciate you being one of the few true naturals out there who hasn't lost their vision as to why they first started health and fitness in the first place. I've been a bit out of the loop with some of these imbeciles but I do know there are tons of them out there doing anything for likes and being fake natties. it truly makes me sick as well.

    Because you have such a huge following, please continue to use your platform to call out these irresponsible so called health enthusiasts. they are causing people injuries and giving false expectations as to what's attainable naturally. thanks again Scott.

  33. Very few that I follow. Proud to say you were the first fitness influencer I started watching on YouTube before the fitness fad started when you wore the blue shorts and did you videos in an empty gym at night 😅😂 Keep up the good content Scott!!!! 👏🏻

  34. Instagram is where fitness goes to die.

  35. Just watched your video 👌 Please have a look at our videos. We have a free app featuring over 250+ athlete workout and nutrition programs. Cheers!

  36. Jesus! I never seen you this angry before😂

  37. You look so angry lol

  38. Dude, what's up with your neck?

  39. Scott herman is the shining paladin of the fitness world. Lawful good

  40. I LOVE THIS KIND OF CONTENT! KEEP SPEAKING THE TRUTH

  41. You know what Scott?
    I've been a follower of yours for many years now and you've helped me gain many gains and I'm really digging this new line of videos that you have coming out, exposing all the BS on social media nowadays that's fitness related. Well because your right, and now we have you to stand up for people like myself who aren't absolute experts and are just trying to make the best of our situation! And you pointing it out for those who dont notice, really is a critical thing that needs to be done.
    BUT, what I feel as a fellow hermanite is that we need to take action and let those assholes know that we know what they are doing, and it needs to stop! Make sure THEY NOTICE THAT WE NOTICE AND WE WANT IT GONE! So for everytime you call someone out and if I agree (after research if needed) I will share the video to the person / people you are calling out. I hope that hundreds if not thousands of others do the same, so we can end all this b.s. and go back to what is important. MAKING GAINZ!
    (Btw I started watching your videos when I was in 10th grade, now 24, and back then I honestly didnt even notice your accent!)

  42. Scott chill out. Why are you so angry?

  43. Athlene x blocked me on Instagram wen I told them there is a guy who explain u r not a strength Coach — don't know y they blocked me

  44. Ace fitness influencer -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaboFpYAu88

  45. I just found this channel and I really appreciate how much this guy actually cares about the quality of people’s workout and their well-being because not every fitness influencers do

  46. The veins oh God 🙈

  47. You and Jeff……fuck it i choose both!

  48. Don’t copy Athlean Xs “__ is killing your gains” title, thanks

  49. Keep this up Scott!!

  50. The passion is real.

  51. Hey Scott, it's great to call out people with 0 respect to proper training. What could kill it and wrap up the video would be a better way with proper form of doing these exercises. I'm a true believer in showing the example that truly counts and you could do a nice wrap up by showing what the adequate way of training is.

  52. I like the way they look. Only reason I follow them 🤷🏼‍♂️

  53. Hey scott i see your pubes

  54. Scott going off, go get them champ

  55. Bench with the plates 😒😏. Who does that shit

  56. Top 5 rappers eminem is afraid to diss:

  57. You Scott.. i love your channel, i was brought to your channel few years ago from someone mentioning you on other Jeff Cavalier's video, didn't take long to click subscribe.. and then later on i found Jeff Nippard's channel (which i don't remember when did i subscribe to his channel, but i glad i did, he gave out a lot of good information as well).. and then Jeremy Ethier's Channel, which always include a lot of research done by people.. I LOVE YOU ALL.. and you just mention Omar as well, i've been hearing his name as of lately on youtube fitness as well, who is he? you said he have good content as well, i should go check his channel up soon..

  58. does this guy have a speech impediment or is he just trying to fit "gaaah" into every word?

  59. GAAAHHHBAGEE!!!

  60. thanks a lot i really love your continent

  61. I've been training for 8 months i cant even do 176 (80 KG) bench press yet. And i can do 225 natural squat, that is just embarrassing tbh

  62. Honestly? I'm starting to like Scott more and more lately.

  63. Scott's neck veins are bigger than the brains of those twins.

  64. You have the moral superiority in this war against fakes. Keep up the good work hero.

  65. Plates bedside
    e dumbbells are taken at the gym.

  66. Thank you my dear Scott, for letting me roast my friend for following organic_twins and suggested me to follow them too. LoL

  67. I already like you and looked up to but now holy shit I have alot of respect for you standing up for what is right. I chose a good channel to le as rn from, I'm a beginner and looking to use your info to make gains

  68. There is a lot of garbage out there. Even AthleneX puts out the occasional rubbish which contradicts what he previously said. The other day he had a new workout for chest which was a dumb bell bench press from the floor (no bench). It was laughable. The elbows just rest on the floor. How can you get full range of movement from this? Just another dumb weekly video to help pay the bills with content that won't help anyone.

  69. This video could have been called "Going Super Saiyen 101"
    (Scott of course, not the organic idiots)

  70. If you look at Jeff Calvalier or Scott Herman they have some videos how to do “x” exercise right they go into detail usually over 5 minutes. How will you learn a workout from an Instagram video less than a minute long? With limited audio?

  71. Mr.Scott..Your anger is justifiable…Your genuineness is obvious..Blasting at the misleading ones to save the innocent ones from all the trouble they are going to face just tells me what you are..Proud to be one of your subscribers…God bless you and family….Love you Scott for what you are…

  72. Scott you're a good man…
    Thank you ☺

  73. If you keep doing those videos your blood Pressure will rise. Hell 😂

  74. when he screamed about how they are teaching 250k people how to destroy their shoulders i got goosebumps

  75. Jeff and Schott colab video when?

  76. I really like you and with all due respect, what about for us that do not have the necessary money to buy extra dumbbells! Again i do not try to criticize i am only asking for guidance is it so harmfull to perform excesises with plates that are usually done with dumbells? I would like to thank you in advance whether you replay or not sir.

  77. I go to Athlean for great functional workouts and the science behind what they target and why were doing them.

    I come to Scotty because I think he’s the best at teaching safe correct form, and to hear him say the word GAAHHHHBAGE!!

    I go to Shredded Sports Science for some of the best nutritional science to learn what to put in my body to maximize results

    I go to Every Damn Day to hear him absolutely take the piss out of the liars fakers and grifters out there.

    Thanks to all of you for drastically improving my physical and mental health and steering me away from the mountains of shitty advice out there, much love! ✌🏽

  78. You're right Herman. Instagram shouldn't have axed the like button. They should have blocked the ability to block others. That's how misinformation spreads on social media.

  79. Hey Scott, you do a good job creating balance in the accessible information about health and fitness that is out there. When you are really mad about something you see or heard that is really bullshit and not helping people further, do make a video about it! Because people who don't know better have to see the right way to not harm themselves when working out and you need to channel the anger and frustration too! Keep up the work!

  80. wrong advice was going to break my arm but thanks to u no more i am in the best shape of my life
    Thank u

  81. My boy getting a pump from being mad

  82. He has a perfect body, so I know his workouts are legit. And so good looking!!

  92. Love your videos. I admit I use both belt and knee sleeves while squatting. But that because of my ankylosing spondylitis that has left some damage on my joints. 🙂
