  1. Like I said before, you have the sexiest tush!. One I wouldn't mind squeezing a least four times a day, just consider it part of your exercise routine*lol*.

  2. Definitely, I have been working out for a long time at home but I just got a gym pass about a month ago. I go to work on my swimming but I always want to work out. I have good knowledge about lifting from P90X but I was very afraid of doing things wrong and getting injured on the machines. Your videos are very helpful and I'm glad I found your channel. Its boosting my confidence of actually going up to the weight room.
    Thanks.

  3. Scott, I am Amazing (nickname in your website) but your The Master. Excellent. demonstration. I like this exercise but I never knew if I was hitting the right muscle or how my feet should stay, Bravo!

  4. the postion of this machine remind me of the heres the improper name but everyone who hits the gym will known what i mean,,,,,…. butt machine… althoguth the leg movement is diffrent…. sigh butt machine is a hard machine… yeap…

  5. In my case Sumo Deadlift has worked absolutely the best for the whole lower body + Posterior chain but Curls are good to do also from time to time.

  6. Noo you should definitley be doing wayyy more reps than 8 that's too low. When it comes down to legs you have to do a lot of reps. Low reps for legs is 10-12 that's really low. Aim for at least 15. I say 15-25 you should be doing change it up so you're not used to it and you gain muscle but keep it between 15-25. You need to do the same for abs aswell. As for the other muscles do 6-8 but not every single week change it up and do 12-15 one week for muscle confusion.

  7. hahahaha that's funny. If you don't give your muscle a challenge they will not grow, or they may grow but not nearly as much as one would want. I seen crazy results off training to failure. I regret not taking before pics though.

  8. I wish I had a whole gym to work out all by myself like you do. I absolutely hate working out with other people around staring at me, or occupying the machines I need to use.

  9. I recommend this kind of film. Love You tube due to this kind of content.My step brother was previously bullied. He explained he was intending to grow muscle and strength. I didn't believe him. But then within weeks he added 40 pounds of full-strength lean muscle mass. He made use of the Muscle Building Bible (Google it). No-one dares to bully the man nowadays.

  10. sure is right. you can make your workout sessions much more productive if your eating the right foods to avoid fat and belly. Listen to this My senior in gym daily having this secret food items to kill his belly with less excercise. you can see it here bit.ly/18Kpurr?=jwcks

  11. I think people are full of shit when they say leg curls lead to hamstring strains or hamstring dominance. These Internet gurus are getting way out of hand with these bogus statements.

  12. Love this exercise . I do heavy to failure and my last 2 reps I can feel a cramp while I'm curling that.best feeling

  13. if you boys expect to get ripped much faster without wasting a single another minute in the gym, then you really want to check out this video tutorial SIXPP.COM

    Death is too inevitable not to defy, life too fearful and uncertain to embrace.

  14. Wow. Fabulous clip.

    My cousin was formerly overweight. He went from 293lbs of pure fat to 200 lbs of total lean muscle mass. We thought it was awesome! I just registered personally coz I wish to greatly enhance my overall physique. He made use of the Muscle Building Bible (Google it)…

  15. Do you feel lying leg curls are better than seated? I just left the gym doing legs and they don't have a lying machine but now that I critique my form more it seems my legs don't fully extend in the seated machine 

  16. Scott Herman is the best I've seen. He is a regular guy in great shape and talks to us like we are real people. I notice his moves illustrate safety. I will be looking at him more; not these crazies who sound like they're pumped with drugs.

  17. Thanks Scott, I am scared of the weight machines except for like 3 of them. I had this at my calves. Thanks to your video I now do it correctly.

  18. This video is a classic! Helped me out a bunch and I am now using it to help somebody with their PT. Great work man!

  19. I think this is the oldest ever Scott Herman video I've come across. Amazing it's been 10 years! Keep up the great work Scott 🙂
