Adonis Adonis takes young Jeffrey by the

play00:13

scrawny arm and sends him straight to

play00:15

the gym with a very special workout

play00:18

routine and then this

play00:28

you you know what I lived my entire life

play00:31

basically like I was AFK you know that

play00:33

phrase AFK away from keyboard kind of

play00:36

like when you're playing a video game

play00:37

and you say to your friends oh BRB like

play00:39

I'll be back in a second I lived my

play00:41

entire life like disassociated so

play00:43

distanced away from

play00:46

reality and it was only when I was 17

play00:49

years old where I started a very special

play00:52

habit that's where my life started to

play00:54

change and that habit was weightlifting

play00:57

going to the gym and lifting weights to

play00:59

try and build muscle and to lose fat and

play01:02

to look good I discovered a few

play01:03

YouTubers that like I really started to

play01:05

look up to and one of the guys was named

play01:07

Joe Delaney and I would see all of these

play01:09

guys who had become confident because

play01:12

they got into the gym because they built

play01:13

these awesome physiques and now they

play01:15

were attracting girls and this was like

play01:16

blowing my mind thinking wo like if I

play01:18

play01:20

finally like it and so here I am Brown

play01:22

skinny fat

play01:24

17-year-old like you know raised by my

play01:26

mother addicted to video games but

play01:29

there're in our home gym in the garriage

play01:31

lifting weights like it was so odd for

play01:33

someone like me to be there in this kind

play01:35

of culture of lifting weights but as

play01:37

soon as I realized that making progress

play01:41

in the gym is very similar to making

play01:43

progress in video games that's when I

play01:45

got hooked because in video games you

play01:46

have skills you have like levels that

play01:48

and you want to keep leveling up and the

play01:50

way that you level up is by gaining

play01:52

experience XP and it was only when I

play01:54

realized that when you put on more

play01:57

weight onto the bar in weightlifting

play02:00

that's like gaining XP that's like going

play02:01

up levels and that's when I got hooked

play02:03

and I was like finally like you know so

play02:05

dedicated to this pursuit of building an

play02:07

aesthetic body but there was one massive

play02:09

problem I just wasn't making progress

play02:12

fast enough I was going to the gym I was

play02:15

tracking my calories but it still felt

play02:16

like I you know I've got more energy I

play02:18

want to do more I want to do more what

play02:19

else can I do so I just be watching like

play02:20

more more hours hours of Fitness YouTube

play02:24

content just thinking oh but that you

play02:25

know that's being productive I wanted to

play02:27

make more progress I was doing the

play02:28

fundamentals I had more time I had more

play02:30

energy but I didn't really know other

play02:32

things to do so in this video I want to

play02:34

help you to maximize your progress in

play02:37

your physique now the first and most

play02:39

important thing are those fundamental

play02:40

things like going to the gym Progressive

play02:42

overload sleeping right eating right but

play02:45

you didn't need me to tell you that you

play02:47

didn't need me to make another Fitness

play02:48

YouTube video where the guy tells you

play02:50

like yeah sleep is really important

play02:51

you've heard it before we don't need to

play02:53

like reify it I want to talk about weird

play02:55

extra things that I did which I think

play02:57

helped me to gain more progress in the

play03:00

gym outside of those very important

play03:02

fundamentals the most important lesson

play03:04

I'll share with you at the end of this

play03:05

video to make you keep watching and and

play03:07

Skyrock get the YouTube retention for me

play03:08

please cuz rent is Che these airbnbs

play03:10

don't pay for themselves bro number one

play03:13

find out what kind of Dieter you are so

play03:16

diet is very important when it comes to

play03:19

building muscle losing fat and you want

play03:20

to be in a calorie deficit if you want

play03:22

to lose fat you want to be in a calorie

play03:23

Surplus if you want to gain a lot of

play03:25

muscle a lot of size right and of course

play03:26

you want to try and eat as clean as

play03:28

possible you want to eat like ingredient

play03:30

Foods instead of some processed

play03:32

like some garbage like Sam like seems to

play03:34

eat you want to have like cleaner meals

play03:36

now that was obvious things one of the

play03:38

big lessons that I've learned on top of

play03:40

that is to try and figure out what your

play03:42

diet personality is like in the sense of

play03:44

figuring out how you diet best so some

play03:48

guys can literally just intuitively

play03:50

guess how many calories they're eating

play03:52

and like how to stay lean or to get into

play03:55

shape some guys can literally just like

play03:56

just eat what they kind of feel like and

play03:58

they'll stay in like fantastic shape

play04:01

they don't need to track calories they

play04:02

don't even need to like really think

play04:04

about being extreme with the like how

play04:06

clean or healthy the food is for me I've

play04:09

realized that I actually do best when I

play04:11

really weigh everything that I eat out

play04:13

and I put it into my fitness pal now

play04:16

that's like something which a lot of

play04:17

Fitness YouTubers do so the advice isn't

play04:19

that special but it was more that I had

play04:21

to find out that this was the best way

play04:22

for me because I tried some of those

play04:24

times where I just eat intuitively

play04:26

because I didn't want to like you know

play04:27

be obsessed with my diet and weighing

play04:29

every thing that I was eating and so I'd

play04:31

eat intuitively like the same few meals

play04:33

and there's been times where I've ate

play04:36

the same few meals for a few days and I

play04:38

thought wait let me just put that into

play04:39

my fitness pal and it turned out that I

play04:42

was

play04:43

eating 1.7 th000 calories a day I was

play04:48

eating intuitively I was eating you know

play04:50

what I felt like how much I needed to

play04:51

eat or something and I was undering like

play04:54

crazy I'm 6'1 by the way so my calorie

play04:56

maintenance is like 2.8 to 2.9 th000 and

play04:59

I was eating like like almost half

play05:02

that I've had a few moments like that

play05:05

where it really made me realize like I

play05:07

have absolutely no idea when it comes to

play05:10

like guessing calories or anything I

play05:12

could tell you roughly right I kind of

play05:13

know the math now an egg is 60 calories

play05:16

a bit of butter to cook the egg in will

play05:17

be like 30 calories an orange is 70 I

play05:20

can tell you these things a chicken

play05:21

breast is 120 calories but when it comes

play05:23

to actually like you know going out to

play05:25

restaurants or eating this food or

play05:26

making something in the kitchen I don't

play05:28

actually keep a track of of it and so I

play05:30

realized my diet personality is the kind

play05:32

of one where I need to have everything

play05:34

written down using an app like my

play05:36

fitness pile makes it really easy

play05:38

otherwise and my diet will just be all

play05:41

over the place and on top of that it

play05:43

keeps me feeling really certain with my

play05:45

diets like if you've got that slight

play05:47

feeling right now almost like the

play05:49

anxiousness the fear of the unknowing of

play05:51

whether you're actually like making the

play05:53

progress that you want if you want a

play05:54

bulk right now you have this kind of

play05:56

fear of like am I really even gaining

play05:57

weight I don't really think I am if you

play05:59

want to lose weight you're thinking wait

play06:00

am I doing it right am I losing any

play06:02

weight like how am I eating too much if

play06:04

you've got that kind of like uncertainty

play06:06

when you track everything that you eat

play06:09

it goes away and there that starts to

play06:12

fuel really nice because you get that

play06:14

level of confidence that you're going in

play06:16

the right direction so when I track my

play06:17

calories and I weigh out everything that

play06:19

I eat which of course sounds you know it

play06:21

sounds kind of lame but when I do that

play06:23

I'm hit with this like this certainty

play06:25

this almost masculine certainty where

play06:27

like I'm calm now I know that I'm going

play06:30

to make the progress that I want to make

play06:32

when I don't do that when I'm randomly

play06:34

eating at restaurants and I'm just

play06:35

trying to think of like yeah just try

play06:36

and eat protein every few hours just eat

play06:38

intuitively then I have that level of

play06:40

anxiousness where I'm thinking wait I

play06:41

don't even know if I've ate extra

play06:43

calories today or if I haven't ate

play06:45

enough so my suggestion to you is if you

play06:47

can relate to that kind of weird

play06:49

anxiousness and that sort of if you're

play06:51

being honest realizing that you're

play06:53

probably not that great at like guessing

play06:55

calories and how much you're eating just

play06:57

track it I actually think that even even

play06:59

though it sounds kind of extreme to

play07:01

track everything you eat I actually

play07:03

believe that eating disorder is not

play07:06

doing that I actually genuinely believe

play07:09

about 99% of people have Eating

play07:10

Disorders because they don't even know

play07:12

what they're eating I don't think it's

play07:14

as crazy as it sounds to know exactly

play07:17

what you're consuming to know exactly

play07:19

how many calories it is to like you know

play07:20

put it down so it's like it's just there

play07:23

it's accounted for I think that's

play07:25

actually way healthier than randomly

play07:27

just eating because like you know people

play07:30

like to do intuitive eating which is

play07:31

just like they'll just say oh I'm just

play07:33

eating healthy I just eat whatever like

play07:34

my my healthy body wants me to but the

play07:37

issue is our bodies have been hijacked

play07:39

by the modern world and all of the weird

play07:40

chemicals that they've put in all these

play07:41

foods and so whatever your body

play07:43

intuitively wants to eat it's no longer

play07:46

actually healthy because there's there's

play07:48

fat people who are intuitively eating

play07:50

but their brain and their body is so

play07:52

up that they're intuitively

play07:54

craving food that's actually poisoned

play07:56

for them the second lesson I want to

play07:58

give you which really helped me to put

play07:59

on a really good amount of muscle mass

play08:01

was training with a friend now I the the

play08:05

story of this friend that I trained with

play08:07

goes kind of like afterwards but

play08:09

basically we fell out and and we like he

play08:11

wasn't a very like good person or a

play08:13

loyal man but before he betrayed me and

play08:16

started speaking to my ex-girlfriend

play08:17

this guy that I trained with for like a

play08:19

year straight was amazing

play08:22

imagine like you it's a weird way to

play08:24

introduce someone basically like I

play08:25

trained with this guy in the gym for

play08:27

about a year basically every single day

play08:29

and it was so routine that like I would

play08:31

wake up I would work at 8:00 a.m. I'd

play08:33

eat a big pre-workout meal and he'd be

play08:35

outside I'd hop in the car where like

play08:37

you know laughing and and singing loudly

play08:39

and stuff get to the gym we were lifting

play08:40

heavy weight spotting each other we knew

play08:42

what weight we' both use and our like

play08:43

our strength started to match which

play08:45

meant that it was so like simple to you

play08:47

know share the barbell together and when

play08:49

you have that guy who knows how much

play08:50

weight you can lift who's screaming at

play08:51

you that's very powerful like it it's

play08:54

not only is it psychologically just good

play08:56

for you because you know you've got

play08:57

someone who's watching you for

play08:58

accountability someone who's hyping you

play09:00

up but also just for genuine just

play09:02

physical safety because with a lot of

play09:04

the movements that you're going to do in

play09:05

the gym it's so much safer if you feel

play09:07

like you've got someone who's spotting

play09:09

you with a lot of like pressing

play09:10

exercises so I found that if I'm bench

play09:12

pressing and I'm particularly going for

play09:14

lower reps my weight is that I can use

play09:17

is so much lower unless if I actually

play09:19

have a spot like You' assume whether you

play09:21

have a spot or not your strength in the

play09:23

gym is the same it's just it's weird

play09:26

because it's like once you become

play09:28

experienced in the gym you know that

play09:29

there's a certain way that you won't

play09:31

attempt at like bench press unless

play09:33

there's someone stood behind you who

play09:34

could save you in cases you mess up

play09:36

because even when you do fail a bench

play09:38

press set it's not like life or death

play09:40

you can without the the clips on the

play09:41

barbell you can't just you know like

play09:43

throw the barbell to the side you can do

play09:45

that but it it's still quite scary to do

play09:48

that it's quite like loud in the gym

play09:50

you're disrupting everyone you might

play09:51

drop the weight on someone's foot you

play09:53

don't actually want to have to fail like

play09:54

a bench press um a set and if you've got

play09:58

someone stood behind you it's it's like

play09:59

it's like another 10% of your strength

play10:02

just gets activated because you're not

play10:04

scared anymore that fear will limit your

play10:07

strength growth and your muscle growth a

play10:09

lot more than you realize and that's not

play10:11

even the biggest benefit of having a

play10:13

workout partner the biggest benefit and

play10:15

like the really the biggest lesson that

play10:16

I wanted to give you in this make it fun

play10:20

I am here today 10 years later from that

play10:24

moment that I told you about where I

play10:25

first started weightlifting 10 years

play10:27

later and I still love working out I

play10:31

would not be here today with the muscle

play10:33

that I've built and the physique that

play10:35

I've I've sculpted if I didn't enjoy it

play10:37

all this time this is one of the things

play10:39

that I have done so amazingly I'm not

play10:41

the strongest in the gym I'm not the

play10:43

most jacked but I have made the the

play10:45

workouts so incredibly fun that someone

play10:47

like me 10 years later is still

play10:49

consistently going I'm saying like

play10:51

someone like me because naturally I have

play10:53

a tendency to like start and quit things

play10:55

I have a tendency like my my normal life

play10:58

was me just just being like a video

play11:00

gamer a loser and here I am 10 years

play11:02

later with like a jacked muscular

play11:04

physique which is so odd for how I lived

play11:07

most of my life because this is like a

play11:08

really disciplined act when I wasn't a

play11:10

disciplined kid I'm only here because I

play11:14

I routinely just make working out really

play11:17

fun for me having a workout partner

play11:19

makes it really fun but I I even have

play11:21

amazing times when I go to the gym by

play11:23

myself because I just do little things

play11:25

that add to the fun so for example I'll

play11:26

listen to the like the kind of songs

play11:28

that really really hype me up I'll do

play11:30

the exact workout which I find the most

play11:32

fun not the one that's going to maximize

play11:35

the muscle or the fat loss the most I do

play11:38

the one which I'm going to find the most

play11:39

fun which means that like if I showed my

play11:42

workout routine to the internet I'm sure

play11:44

that there'll be a bunch of like

play11:45

bodybuilders who will say oh this isn't

play11:46

very optimal you know you could try it

play11:48

like this you should do this but the

play11:49

difference is like I'm still here

play11:50

consistent because I do the kind of

play11:53

workout routine that I find really fun I

play11:55

really like just barbell exercises I

play11:58

like just kind of like seeing the weight

play12:00

go up just because it's like a game but

play12:02

this is like this changes so just 5

play12:04

years ago I really like doing a bunch of

play12:06

isolation exercises and getting like a

play12:08

massive pump and every workout and and

play12:10

just training arms like every day I

play12:12

enjoyed that so I only really train in

play12:15

ways that I enjoy and I just build the

play12:17

kind of physique that I deserve from

play12:19

that which is not the most muscular but

play12:21

even then if you saw pictures of Me

play12:22

Maybe my editor can throw some up like

play12:24

I've built a very respectful physique as

play12:26

a lifetime natural who hasn't had

play12:28

amazing gen like not even good genetics

play12:30

to start with I had basically like the

play12:31

worst kind of genetics which is like

play12:33

Brown skinny fat like Pakistani guy

play12:36

Indian like Indian Pakistani guys we

play12:38

know this is like our genetics are just

play12:40

there's no like brown guy who's just

play12:43

genetically muscular it's just never

play12:44

happened in the world before there's a

play12:46

bunch of black guys who were just born

play12:47

with muscle bunch of white guys

play12:49

who were just born with muscle no Indian

play12:51

or Pakistani guy has ever just been born

play12:53

with like a nice like lean physique

play12:55

we've all like we just start as like a

play12:57

like copy of each each other

play12:59

which is like a a weird fat bloated

play13:01

stomach but like weirdly skinny arms and

play13:03

like a hairy chest and so here I am with

play13:05

a physique that actually is the exact

play13:07

opposite of that where my stomach is is

play13:09

tight and flat where my chest is is

play13:11

muscular where my arms are thick it's

play13:13

been an amazing journey and most of all

play13:16

it's been fun through it all so just

play13:19

like before I started recording this

play13:21

video I just said to my girl who you

play13:23

know we're staying together right now in

play13:24

this beautiful Airbnb and she just went

play13:26

to the the grocery store for us to go

play13:28

get like a bunch of like food and

play13:30

pre-workout stuff like we got fruit and

play13:31

everything and I'm like I can't even

play13:33

explain to you like how how grateful and

play13:35

excited I felt just before I pressed

play13:37

record thinking this is my life I'm in

play13:40

this beautiful place in Scotland we're

play13:42

about to go view Homes that we want to

play13:43

buy and to start a family and my woman's

play13:46

just went out to like to the grocery

play13:47

store to buy us like basically like

play13:49

preworkout like the pre-workout meal and

play13:51

we're going to go to the gym straight

play13:53

after this like I'm living like the the

play13:57

perfect day

play13:59

every day I I absolutely love my life

play14:03

and I love the schedule that I've I've

play14:05

the routine that I've built and the gym

play14:07

has been a huge part of that so I know

play14:11

that right now you probably really want

play14:12

to maximize your muscle mass and you

play14:14

really want to burn as many calories as

play14:15

possible and you've got these big goals

play14:17

which are awesome but I want to tell you

play14:18

that the best advice that I could give

play14:20

you after 10 years of being in this

play14:22

space is to really just think to

play14:24

yourself that you want to create like

play14:25

your perfect life your perfect day and

play14:28

you want to have like the gym being a

play14:30

big part of that you want it to be this

play14:32

thing that you still want like you love

play14:34

it being in your day even 10 years from

play14:37

now even 20 years from now and you've

play14:39

got multiple children and you've got

play14:40

some successful business you still want

play14:42

it to be a super fun part of your day

play14:44

because if you're only going to the gym

play14:46

just for the muscle gain at some point

play14:49

10 20 years from now I'm going to be

play14:50

honest you you'll probably feel a little

play14:52

bit too mature for that right now when

play14:54

you're young it's like the muscle gain

play14:55

means a lot because you're going to get

play14:57

you know you'll attract more girls you

play14:58

get more respect 20 years from now when

play15:00

you've developed yourself spiritually so

play15:02

much more and you're so much more

play15:04

certain of yourself you're going to have

play15:05

a lot less desire to be like 10% body

play15:08

fat unless if you love it if you create

play15:12

this gym lifestyle which you don't love

play15:15

it'll be very hard to maintain that when

play15:18

other priorities start coming up when

play15:20

children come up and maybe like

play15:21

financial problems come up every now and

play15:23

then but when you really love your gym

play15:26

workout when you love the lifestyle that

play15:27

it puts you on when the the thought of

play15:29

like eating a pre-workout meal and going

play15:32

to the gym with your girl it seems like

play15:34

so fun to you you'll do it no matter

play15:37

what even when you're traveling even

play15:38

when you've just had a child that's what

play15:41

I hope for you I know that if you just

play15:43

want to race for the gains I totally

play15:45

understand cuz I've done that but you

play15:47

probably want to maintain those gains

play15:49

for the rest of your life and the number

play15:51

one way you're going to do that is to

play15:53

always keep it fun and enjoyable I could

play15:55

have told you like a bunch of random

play15:57

tactics that probably would have given

play15:58

you more dopamine but I really wanted to

play16:00

equip you with this like life philosophy

play16:02

because any tactic that you use can

play16:04

still be nice but the biggest thing is

play16:06

basically you just never stop this game

play16:08

being in great shape and in great health

play16:10

is what's called a infinite game it's a

play16:13

game where you can't actually win like

play16:16

you can't win at being in shape the

play16:19

point of a game like this is to simply

play16:22

just keep playing the game you this is

play16:24

like the best message I could give you

play16:27

the way that you win this game is by

play16:30

just playing it continuously never

play16:33

quitting because no matter how much

play16:35

progress you make if you quit this game

play16:37

of dieting of going to the gym

play16:39

eventually you'll lose all the progress

play16:41

the only way to maintain the the gains

play16:43

that you've worked so hard for is to

play16:45

keep playing the game for the rest of

play16:47

your life and the only way that you'll

play16:49

actually want to do that when you're

play16:50

past the point of caring so much about

play16:52

muscle and you've already attracted your

play16:54

woman and all you know 20 years down the

play16:55

line 50 years down the line you're only

play16:57

going to keep playing the game if it's

play16:59

still then still fun for you that's the

play17:02

most important thing that you could do

play17:04

to melt away the fat and build like

play17:06

insane amount of muscle and be in shape

play17:08

for the rest of your life while 70 80

play17:10

90% of people struggle with that this is

play17:13

your competitive Advantage because it's

play17:15

one of the most fun parts of your day

play17:18

this is what other people will never

play17:19

understand about you and the fact that

play17:21

you're still in shape when you're 60

play17:22

years old you enjoy it you love

play17:25

it you love going to the gym you love

play17:27

like you know track in and making sure

play17:29

that you're eating clean you love doing

play17:31

that it's so fun for you that's how

play17:34

you're going to maintain the gains for

play17:37

the rest of your life if you resonate

play17:39
