  1. I just have a problem with some little puke giving advice . the guy has not made any progress to back this . sorry little puke guy with the accent .

  2. This guy has knowledge on how to do it, but obviously has no experience with a lot of muscle growth. I mean the guy talks about being big when he's small. You should practice what you preach man.

  3. i get your point good argument ! but to be honest i can't rest that much! some people doesn't have that much time to rest also in my experience i rest between 15 to 30sec between sets in the begning but in the end when i m all out of juice sometimes i sapce out and rest for 1min i hope they do more research about this because short periode has it's own benefits in a lotf of way and i believe that and it works for me i ve got main of the results i want ! but it's good to know new things and try different methode^^ ! good video by the way i m new sub here i like the way you think^^

  4. I still don't quite grasp some of the concepts. I feel like I get more soreness from training with shorter rest periods, and this soreness is a signal of micro tears which will result in muscle repair and growth i.e. hypertrophy. isn't it possible to get lean and more muscular without chasing strength gains as the main goal? It seems muscle fatigue should result in full muscle fiber recruitment and getting a result in less time.

  5. Gotta love a fitness video that's not only well-produced and watchable, but actually researched. Well done, Radu.

  6. wow! the greatest fitness channel on youtube! you're videos are an inspiration, motivation and a very good educational source! keep up the good work

  7. +Radu Antoniu Ca si masa musculara sunt cam pe la acelasi nivel ca si tine, poate un pic mai mult in spate si picioare. Ca si procentaj la grasime sunt pe undeva la 18 %, DA TE PRIND !

  8. Hey Radu, I'm new to your channel and I really enjoy and like your videos. I was just wanting your advice on top exercises for fat loss. I'm currently 6'1" and 122 kg. Thank you! -Sky.

  9. Welp, you've just earned another subscriber XD Hope you keep getting more views and get moh money cause you deserve it lol

  10. I cannot lift because of a broken hand I've been following intermittent fasting and it has given me good results but not that great because I'm not really burning calories so anything that can really help?Walking ?

  11. 3:04 "naturally through diet and training you cant produce testosterone enough to produce muscle growth. You need to take steroids" did i heard that right?

  12. What if i do series of 4 excercises for 4 different musclegroups constantly without brake one after the other… will that simulate a brake, or is it lack of oxygen that is the problem?

  13. By instinct, I usually rest more than a minute, sometimes even 10 or more. The whole rest between 30-60 secs never really work with me and I felt that I should be conserving energy so I can push through consistency lol

  14. The problem is that the biggest thing for muscle growth is having enough volume. Most people only workout about an hour each workout, and if you're resting 2-4 minutes between sets then you won't be getting enough volume in an hour. Now if you're taking 30-60 second rests, you could literally double your volume per workout and that'll benefit you much more.

  15. Hey Radu I need some advice so I've kind of been at a plateu for a while now. Im currently 159 Lbs I am about 5'9. I started off the November of last year at 195 Lbs. I didn't know much about health or exercise or anything I had not done adequate research. My approach to the weight loss was do lots of cardio and i actually went on a vegeterian diet for maybe 3 months, which consisted of mostly carbs and proccesed vegetarian foods.
    After all the weight loss my stomach is still huge and there is fat well all over my body. I know that through the journey I lost muscle and fat. Now im wondering what to do ? I am hitting the gym now and lifting weights .Do I just keep a caloric defeciet with the adequate Macros or should I not worry about calories build muscle then go on a cut ? Thanks.

  16. this guy is more knowledagble then all those fake Natties out there giving false expectations this is what real progress for natties looks like

  17. oh shut the fuck up seriously tries of these "magic" formulas. Go to the gym and lift WORK FOR IT! and im bigger stronger and swole. who u gonna listen to? an average fuck who thinks he a Greek God and knows his shit? or a beast like me who workouts for hours and eats like a fucking champion (whole foods not JUNK). stop listening to this shit seriously they only lean with barely little amounts of muscle.

  18. i really like your videos you speak the way that a normal begginer can understand. And you have reasoning and results

  19. Radu, what do you think about supersetting compound excercises with other excersises that don't tax the CNS and the same muscles? For instance Bench Press into leg raises. I have tested this, and for myself it does not impact the amount of weight nor reps I can lift on my compounds (I use and log via your RPT progessive overload model, prolly using wrong name tho).

    I tend to lose focus and get bored on longer rest periods. I like to keep intensity high and my heart rate elevated. Also, my total volume is higher this way in the same amount of time.

  20. Great video quality! A rare sight in muscle training video. You just gained a subscriber 😉

  21. Thanks, good informative video!
    I am not saying anything about the science facts (because… science), but personally I noted the most difference in muscle growth when I started increasing intensity (shorter rest periods) and kept my workouts shorter than an hour. You have to keep in mind that this of course will limit the volume on each subsequent set and that you need to change to an appropriate weight for each set that matches your desired volume. This meant for me that initially I had to lower the weights a bit at the end of my sets, but I always tried to increase weight each session to still be progressing in strength. This combined with a lot of focus on mind muscle connection and really utilizing full range of motion and squeezing at the contracted part of the movement really made my muscles grow. I am absolutely not saying that this is the best option or that it works for anyone else, but it sure did wonders for my physique. When I am in the gym I focus in contracting my muscles, the weights are only tools there for increasing the tension during the movement.

  22. Radu, does it make sense, to do pushups – rest 1 min – pull-ups – rest 1 min-…? This way you are letting the same group of muscles to rest more than two min and you can carry out more quickly your routine.

  23. great content mate. I find nothing boring about, no matter whether is new, a little new or nothing at all. I'm sure it is fairly new to many. I bet most people go with 30 secs rest between simple movements, 45 to a minute for compound movements. Clear, simple and perfectly structured content. Keep up buddy, keep it up.

  24. but how long should i rest in between actually working out. should it always be 1 day of rest in between working out same muscles?

  25. I see lots of people here calling him skinny and hating his advice, first of all, I don't personally know him also he is lean and maybe that is his preference. not everyone needs to be bulk build. second It's science facts he presents here. Does it work? I don't know, haven't tried it but will it work. Sure I will give it a try and then comment on it.

  26. Radu, what's the disadvantage of short term steroids usage? Are there any bad side-effects? If so please tell me.

  27. Radu, as someone who is training & learning to become an Trainer – Your channel is basically an goldmine for anyone interested in getting into fitness and/or becoming an trainer.

  28. i have a dought that you said that for getting this type of body we need to do strenth taining with weight…which menas do all gym exercise (eg bench press ,peck duck..etc..) with 5-8reps with higher weight?

  29. only 1 intense set per exercise is all that's needed to stimulate growth. it's proven again and again and if you rush to the next exercise you don't need to do boring cardio.

  30. Ai o greseala in documentul tau ai scapat un r :Importanța caloriilorpentru creșterea greutățiiCreșterea musculară depinde, într-o mare măsură, de mâncatul unui suplus de calorii.Asta înseamnă să mănânci mai multe calorii decât arde corpul tău la greutatea și nivelulde activitate actuale.Mușchiul nu poate fi creat din nimic. Dacă vrei să pui 5 kg de mușchi, trebuie sămănânci mai mult pentru câteva luni, pentru a asigura nutrienții necesari.

  31. What would you suggest for someone who doesn't use weights but does things like pull ups, push ups and planking?

  32. Bro wtf, i just started and I never took rest periods into account, i would only do like 10 second rests between my max capacity on the benchpress

  33. Ive gotten in shape – pretty muscular – then left for years. First time round i always rested 2 min or more between sets. It made my workouts more chill and could listen to poscasts. This in turn made me more fine w hitting gym 5x week. I feel it worked for me
