Do This BEFORE Every Workout! (Guaranteed Gains)

Do This BEFORE Every Workout! (Guaranteed Gains)


JEFF: What’s up, guys? Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.com. Today I am going to give you the key, the
one thing you should before every, single workout. It will instantly make every workout better. Before I do I want you to watch this one clip
of Jesse working out. Now I want you to watch the same exercise
being done by six-time Pro-Bowl wide receiver, Antonio Brown, right here in the X-box. See if you can spot the difference. Guys, I’m going to tell you this: that exercise
is not the secret. The exercise is not something to do before
every, single workout. What is to be replicated is to focus on the
awareness of your own efforts because here is the punchline; I don’t think Jesse was
trying hard enough. As a matter of fact, I have proof of that. Here’s one more clip for you. Hey, Jess. JESSE: What’s up, Jeff? JEFF: Hey, I’m doing a YouTube video. I’m not calling you out. Just – I was observing something, and I
want to use this to our advantage, okay? JESSE: All right. JEFF: I want to talk about effort. Today I’m talking about effort. I was watching you do that exercise and I
think you were doing good. But I actually have one, little gripe. I think you could actually do that better. I think you could do that more explosively. How did it feel to you? Be totally honest. JESSE: I felt great. JEFF: All right. Now, come up. I want to see – I want to prove my point. Get in that position again. JESSE: Okay. JEFF: Move back up a little bit. If I told you I want you to literally put
your head through the ceiling up there, I want, on every rep, I want you to put your
head through the ceiling and I want you to pull your knee up as high as you can, get
off that ground. Still control. Do not sacrifice anything in the performance
of what you’re doing. But I want to see a better effort, all right? JESSE: Okay. JEFF: All right, let’s see what you’ve
got. There you go. Up. Head through the roof, every time. Go. All the way up. Nice balance. There you go. Explode. Explode. Up. There you go. One more. One more. Good. Any difference? JESSE: Yeah, big difference. JEFF: So, I’m going to go back and finish
the rest of the video. But the idea is, I believe that there’s
more effort in there. And I don’t care about it being on every,
single set today, but I think it illustrates a point that I want to make sure we get across. JESSE: Okay. JEFF: All right? Good job. JESSE: Thanks, bud. JEFF: So, as you can see, this is going to
be one of those truthful videos. I’m not going to lie to you, like I’m
not going to lie to Jesse. I honestly believe – and I’m including
myself in this – that we don’t train as hard as we can. We don’t put the effort that we can into
everything we do. When you look at a guy like Antonio Brown,
and some people think “Oh, these guys are athletes. They’re genetically gifted. These things become easy for them.” That’s not the case, guys. I can tell you, after having trained thousands
of athletes, that’s not how it works. What happens is, these guys get to that level
by consistently putting in those kinds of efforts. They don’t take sets off. If they’re in the weight room to train,
they train. When this guy goes out to the field to run
routes you’d think he’s running the final route in Super Bowl on 4th and goal every,
single time because of the accumulation of those efforts. The saying goes ‘if you practice like you
play’; that’s the key. Now, for Jesse I’m not expecting him to
go from 0 to 60 and be able to fix it all in one shot. That’s why I even said to him at the end
there “Just give me one.” I’m going to say the same to you. Give me one, solid effort like you’ve never
given before in today’s workout. I promise you, you’re going to start seeing
big time rewards and gains from doing that. The amount of effort that you’re continuing
to stifle and hold back right now will probably surprise the hell out of you. You’re going to see it by picking whatever
exercise it is and unleashing your best effort. The thing is, it’s not the exercise. It’s never the exercise. If the effort is not there the exercise doesn’t
help you that much. If you look at the definition of effort alone
it doesn’t mean going and putting 1000lbs on a bar on a squat and then continuing to
quarter-rep it out. Effort has to start with the actual exercise
done through a full range of motion. That’s the baseline of how we’re even
going to define it. We work from there. Beyond that, it’s not necessarily always
about training to failure. If you’re training for power, like that
particular exercise there, you wouldn’t train to ultimate failure. But you’d give your absolute best effort
in every, single one of those reps so you’re producing high quality reps every, single
time. Explosive power. Especially if you turn that into a power endurance
exercise. You wouldn’t train to absolute failure,
to the point where you’re dangerously falling all over the floor. The idea is, no matter what it is you’re
training for you max out that effort. If you start to accumulate and repeat that
over, and over, and over again then you’re going to start seeing results from your training. I always say, guys, ‘you can either train
hard, or you can train long, but you can’t do both’. This is where it comes from. This is where it comes from. No matter what shape or form it takes, high
effort is something that cannot be cheated. So, do me a favor. Before your next workout if you want to watch
this video again, and again then do that. It’s going to help you become aware. Whatever you need to do. Become self-aware of the fact that I know,
and you know all of us don’t consistently give our best effort. I want you to try to do that in today’s
workout, and I promise you, you’re going to start seeing big gains from that. In the meantime, if you’ve found this video
helpful, guys, or truthful let me know below, and let me know what else I can do to cover
in future videos to make sure you get the most out of what I do. That’s why this channel exists. That’s why I continue to make these videos
for you. If you’re looking for a complete training
program it’s over at ATHLEANX.com. Step by step I’ll tell you what you need
to do. I’ll tell you all the exercises, but you’ve
got to give me the effort there, too. All right, guys. I’ll be back here again in just a few days. See you.

  2. That is the secret to achieve anything in life. ⭐🛸
    Although… I have to confess: With out a personal trainer I have no motivation what so ever. It feels like loneliness has a heavy weight of its. own ,seriously.

  3. Absolute truth. Did just this before watching the video. Gave max effort… And doubled my reps!! I'm still a beginner, but was shocked. Thank You Jeff, for all you do.

  4. I gave my everything on my first day of gym, my legs got so sore that i legitimately couldn't walk properly and even struggled to change position while sleeping. I took off a week and joined later and did lesser than day 1 and now i am regular and give my best.

  5. Click bait after click bait video from this stupid clown, no wonder he’s the worst youtube trainer in my opinion. Fuck you, Jeff!

  6. Great point. You get out what you put in. Same in other areas of life actually. Step 1 though is ..get off Youtube and off your ass. I will do that just as soon as i chk out one more video..

  7. Very True! I love that Mantra. You can train hard or you can train long but you can't do both! The last 3 yrs I lived my that Creed! 👍

  8. The other day, I was set to bench and do triceps. When I started benching, I felt weak, I couldn't put up the weight I was aiming for. It was hard to focus, and I felt groggy. So I just went home. Sometimes it just isn't the time to lift. I know it's a waste of time half assing my workouts, and i will never push through a routine when I'm not actually invested in it.

  9. I notice this exact thng when i do my cardio, on my own outside i trick myself in to being more tired then i really am, moving slower. But on the treadmill i have no choice but to stay on speed and notice then i can do it longer and feel more gain afterwards.

  10. The biggest difference wasn't even the height gained it was the speed in repetition that was a big difference between jesse and that other guy… whatever the fuck his name was.

  11. Just wanted to say thank u so much for the videos, you are right, every rep I’ve been pushing like u said “THROUGH THE ROOF” and I feel a lot more “burn” than ever before and I’ve been cheating myself from the gains, idc if the video is from a year ago. I still find something new from ALL of your videos

  12. Do this before every workout GUARANTIED GAINS.

    Inject 200mg of Test prop 200 of tren ace and 50mg of dbol.

    you're welcome

  13. Do This BEFORE Every Workout – Be sure to poop before you leave for gym. Trust me it works or you will be farting every time you lift

  14. It’s a great video for who wants to exercise directly. Although I don’t speak English well, I still watch this video again and again to understand the knowledge.

  15. Hi Jeff what about how much effort should I make, Coming out of an injury?
    What is the right volume/load/effort when trying to recover?

  16. This guy is so lucky to be able to have Jeff call him out like that. Constructive criticism goes a long way if your willing to embrace it. This video is a good “pick me up” .

  17. Tried this as a part of the perfect leg workout.. so difficult to even lift my foot.. can't wait to improve it to a jump level

  18. Music REALLY helps. I suggest everyone trains with music. It's better if the gym doesn't have music and you play your own because the music at the gyms that do play music are usually playing whatever trash is popular now.

  19. But is it good for your body to go all out with every exercise? Doesn't it lead to burn out, especially if you don't use some type of supplement?

  20. This is absolute truth. I realized I have to wreck at least one muscle group in a session, put real effort in. Keep progressing.

  21. The 2nd week of "Torcher" in Max/Size almost brought me to tears today. Hell with it, I cry at the gym, I cry at the gym.

    I have set the bar WAY TOO LOW in my life. "Max/Size" helps me realize this. I'm 57.

  22. Thx for the vid and the motivation. Almost threw op doing My last workout. And My chest pump got so big it Almost blocked My airway. No joke

  23. Wait, so is he telling me to do that jump before my next work out or is he telling me to watch out for my level of effort in every exercise?

  24. This is so true, it's easy to get comfortable, start doing the same weights you're comfortable with a tad bit of work, however that's why the mind body connection can help so much with the effort because you're focused on doing the best you can!!!

  25. This concept is huge. I see people at the gym all the time, fiddling with their playlists, fiddling with their phones, chatting between sets, etc. The key is to FOCUS. Which most people don't do. Don't believe me? Look at Bruce Lee.

  26. @athlean-x do you know how to recover completely from an MCL sprain ? I have done a lot of physiotherapy therapy and its almost 8 months now.. and its not getting completely better
