    This guy sounds like Sam Elliott

    • Andrew Guadagnino / February 9, 2015

      Hmm an interview with Sam Elliott would make an excellent podcast!

    • Sammy Jankis / February 10, 2015

      And he looked like Tom Hardy (2:43)

    • Ryan McGale / April 17, 2015

      +JacksonOfAllTrades I thought Hank Hill but that works too lol

    • Isaac Campos / February 22, 2016

      +Sammy Jankis he did haha

    • ultimategodking / June 1, 2016

      I thought he was related to Tom the car guy from misfit garage

  2. Art of Manliness / February 9, 2015

    I visit Mark Rippetoe at his gym in Wichita Falls, TX to talk barbell

    • Hyacinthe KHODJA / February 12, 2015

      You also dared to round your back in front of him, shame on you ! 😀

    • Mustavo Gaia / February 21, 2015

      +Hyacinthe KHODJA If Mr. Rippetoe was assertive when our guy performed a
      right squat, I am not sure what to expect after that deadlift.

    • jtarley / October 3, 2015

      +Art of Manliness Courageous!

  3. PeterPwn! / February 9, 2015

    Did not expect a 315 deadlift out of nowhere! Strong.
    More people should do the big 3 on a regular basis. Ditch the curls and get
    strong and healthy!
    Great video.

    • John / July 25, 2016

      +PeterPwn! It’s the best way to gain strength and build muscle, there’s
      also some studies where it shows that doing 5 reps or 12 will net the same
      hypertrophy, that’s pretty revolutionary.

      Doing machines and dumbbell exercises only will do nothing for someone that
      doesn’t roid, compounds, dips, pullups and a few acessories is the way to
      I’d suggest switching to OHP as a main lift instead of acessory, it works
      all 3 heads of the shoulder and gives you raw power, pretty fun to OHP your
      girlfriend, girls get impressed and then sad when their boyfriends fail it

    • PeterPwn! / July 25, 2016

      I know. Compounds are also a lot more fun to train. I have no idea how
      anybody can enjoy machine training in the long run.

      I’d have to worry about getting one before overhead pressing my

    • John / July 25, 2016

      +PeterPwn! Haha, don’t worry. Once you become swole you’ll see a sudden
      influx of girls, I was skinny fat(already had a gf though) and no girls
      cared about me, then I started to lift and get big and lean and out of
      nowhere I’d get invited to chill out with their other friends as well and
      to carry them around, also flirting in facebook and what not.
      My girlfriend has been there since the beginning, she’s the real winner
      here haha

    • PeterPwn! / July 25, 2016

      I’m already in pretty good shape.
      5’10 at 180lbs bodyweight with visible abs and obliques. 405 squat, 440
      deadlift, 265 bench, 200lbs push press…
      Sure, I’m not huge but I’m pretty happy with my body.
      I can’t say I have had that same experience, though. Never had a
      girlfriend. Sure, I get the occasional comment or catch girls looking at my
      butt, but it seems to be more of a self confidence problem for me. I’m
      working on it, though. We’re all gonna make it brah…

    • John / July 25, 2016

      +PeterPwn! Iktf, we’re all gonna make it.

  4. IanTheEarlobe / February 10, 2015

    Can’t wait for the deadlift video

    • Art of Manliness / February 10, 2015

      Gotta love deadlifts.

  5. ManCave Mayhem / February 10, 2015

    What a great collab. Excellent job and excellent choice to work with Mark.

  6. olek1800 / February 10, 2015

    Well done Brett! Nearly 200,000 subscribers! A well deserved effort for
    such a helpful and classy channel – keep up the phenomenal work. 

  7. WajiKay / February 10, 2015


  8. MelancholicThug / February 10, 2015

    Man, i’m pretty sure Rip’s moustache alone could lift much more than the
    entirety of me.

  9. The Reactionary Tree / February 16, 2015

    Starting Strength is a fantastic program. I have been doing it for the past
    7 months. I love it.

    • Art of Manliness / February 17, 2015

      It really is solid. In just over a month, I’ve gone from doing 265 for 3×5
      to 325 for 3×5 on the squat. And I’m actually getting deeper on my squats
      than I was before.

  10. Harold Davidson / February 24, 2015

    Don’t know why, but “Masturbating Before Working Out” came up on my “Up
    Next” section… Hmm… What in my history drove that?

    • Account / May 4, 2015

      +Harold Davidson Lol by Bart Kwan? Love that guy haha

  11. onegaisti / March 13, 2015

    I still think drinking a gomad is ridiculous. 

    • Cwillz303 / September 14, 2015

      +onegaisti it’s only useful if you’re needing a ridiculous number of
      calories in a day; an ectomorph teenager or a high level bodybuilder, and
      you want those calories to come in the form of protein and fats, not extra
      carbohydrates. (Getting enough carbs is all too easy)… I don’t do GOMAD
      although I fall under that first category, but I do drink lots of milk.

    • grizzlytomahawk / September 16, 2015

      +onegaisti Here’s a very useful piece of information to know: if you want
      to get bigger you need to consume a calorie surplus. Milk is affordable for
      most folks and it contains the calories and nutrition that can aid in a
      growing person. I’ve been doing it for four weeks and have gained some fat
      but mostly lean muscle tissue while on the program. Most guys look better
      with some weight on them and that weight also helps with strength gains.

    • onegaisti / September 16, 2015

      +grizzlytomahawk I understand that but you’re talking about a gallon of
      milk everyday. And it’s not like you can’t get calories and protein from
      other sources.

    • TheBadGuy / October 16, 2015

      it aint if youre an anorexic 16 year old boy

  12. QuantumBraced / September 16, 2015

    “Strong people are harder to kill than weak people and more useful in
    general.” Hahah

  14. Cybrok / January 27, 2016

    Starting Strength is the program I wish I had when I was a 125 lbs

  15. Roman Blyshchyk / February 21, 2016

    Great video, thanks 🙂 Why no pull-ups?

  16. kkc1918 / February 26, 2016
