    Personally, I don't find routines like this boring, just relaxing and enjoyable! Love this one. Come back to it at least once a month. I love adding in alternating routines along with traditional ST/body weight upper body routines to keep my body guessing. I'm honestly shocked this one doesn't have more views!

    If I have the time, I like adding on "Day 4: Free 5 day workout challenge for busy people" at the end (before the cool down) to really burn my muscles out – love it because then I get a bonus yoga routine – so even more relaxing! Fitness should be fun – and this is my idea of fun (on my more lazy days when cardio is NOT happening). Thanks for an awesome routine, Daniel!

    This is one of the workouts in week 1 of the cross training program!  It's going great and I am hoping for a good before/after photo after 8 weeks.   I appreciate the advice given during the workout, but its completely demotivating for me.  I need to get pumped up, count reps and focus – so I have to turn the sound off for most of these videos.

    His voice and tone is so calm that it is relaxing. My heart rate was actually lower than usual while doing the same workout while I listened to him. I felt better and more energized this time than other times. I like that Daniel is not screaming, showing off, or belittling anyone – or being an ass. He has the right attitude to make fitness fun and approachable. I am really happy I came over this videos – they need more press. Keep the good vibes and great job.

    I do these weight training exercises but I don't burn many calories. I burn about 150 calories.

    First time viewer, I get the calorie counter on the side, but not 100%. What's the X – Y mean in this sense? which one is the calories you're burning and what is the other one?

    Nice one! I love high-calorie burn strength training. Exhaustion in a less-sweaty way :)

    I was at the gym and an old schooled body builder Besides emphasizing that I have bad form because I lift too heavy weights for my own good. He also told me that I should never worked on my bicep and tricep at the same day because the muscles will never develop. He said that I should work on bicep and should combination and triceps and chest. What is your comment on his theory?

    Hi guys…I'm a little confused…Is it strictly necessary eat after a workout? Why it's important? Could you do a vlog post about that? Thanks a lot for your help.
