Hey Scott and Sean, I’ve been the workouts on SHF workouts and have seen awesome improvement with strength, but I also want to lose body fat and gain muscle mass. I have been doing the drop set system; it seems to be working but only for muscle strength. I’m in BJJ (Jiu-Jitsu) so muscle gain and strength is a great thing to have. I’m 17 and 6’1″ with 30% body fat (20% back fat, and 10% arm fat). I’d like to have way less body fat just like everyone else does, but the question is how can I lose body fat all the way around and gain muscle mass at the same time with only a bench press, workout ball, lat pull down, incline press, and curl bar? Also you two are beasts! And in advance thanks Scott and Sean!

Hey guys, I’ve seen some of your video’s on supplements before, but I was just wondering what your opinions are on HGH (human growth hormone) supplements. I’ve seen some people refer to them as a steroid, but a lot of research I’ve seen on them say they’re “all natural”.
Have you guy’s taken them?
Do you recommend them, or not?
What do you know about them?
Are they worth taking?
Are they safe to take?
Is there one you’d recommend?

Hey Sean & Scott (Sean deserves to be first sometimes haha)
Anyway quick question, generally my posture is pretty good, however my shoulders slouch forward just a bit, anyway to combat this? I presume its maybe because I work my chest harder than my back/shoulders. Any tips to bring them back a bit and make everything a bit tighter round my shoulder region? Would it be a case of just thinking about it and sort of forcing them back to correct it?
I’ve been working out over a year, but 6 months seriously. My meal plan is pretty good, and I’m not taking any supplements at the minute.
If it matters, I’m 19, 6ft and my weight fluctuates between 84-87 kgs (185lbs – 191lbs). Not sure about my body fat % but I think I’m pretty lean.
Also another quick question I have a bit of fat on my stomach, just hiding my abs, I’m currently doing a circuit which involves my back to lose it, is this effective. It consists of: 8-10 reps upright row, 8-10 reps bent over row, 8-10 reps deadlift, 8-10 reps standing barbell shoulder press and then 8-10 reps good mornings. Obviously all those exercises one after another after on circuit then a 45 second to a minute break, and I do this for 5 circuits.
Thanks for the help, Lucas, England.
