Best Fitness Youtubers?

Total newfag here, started lifting a month ago. There are so many fitness youtubers that I can't keep up and some of them have very different tips on how to do things.
If I can only stick to one or two then which one is the best to listen to follow?

    what are your goals? You need to know exactly what you want to achieve, aesthetics, strength, calisthenics, powerlifting? If you're starting out, i recommend staying far away from picrel, and follow Geoffrey Verity Schofield.

      he's such a gay. when he started out, he was regurgitating starting strength. why? because that's what everyone was doing at that time.
      now he disavowed starting strength and is regurgitating ~~*mike israetel*~~ and that provincial american pseudointellectual greg knuckols. why? because that's what everybody's doing at the moment.
      allan thrall is a typical koolaid drinker and all you'll learn from him is the typical koolaid everyone else is drinking now. fuck him and his cringy "metal & beard hurr durr" manchildish ways.

            But the guidelines pic saying there is no benefit to more than 2x a week is referring to muscle hypertrophy, not strength gains.

      read starting strengh, even if you don't like the program and don't want to do it, its more or less a text book about how your body works and adapts as it pertains to weight training. also reading a well written book teaches you way more information, then binge watching youtube videos and not understanding how everything fits together, while you think you're learning. but if you want to binge watch a video series >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cW0EmO12Lk&list=PLyqKj7LwU2RukxJbBHi9BtEuYYKm9UqQQ

      that being said, mike “the garden gnome” israetel from rennesaince periodisation is the best. luckily for you, being a beginner everthing works more or less (some way better than others though) so alot of his content will unnecessarily complicate things for you in the meantime.

      ?t=416
      watch that 7-14 minutes

      my advice is to do total body 3x a week untill that stops working, don't do ppl (pushing muscles one day, pulling next, then legs, do that twice a week), as for a beginner training each muscle 3 times a week works better then every muscle twice a week (like happens in ppl) do that until it stops working. then switch to 'bodybuilding style' programs, specifically how mike "the garden gnome" would program.

      also by programming that means how your workouts are structured and what you do in them, in case that isn't intuitive

      also the dude you posted is complete garbage more often then he says something good dont watch him

        theres the whole playlist for the series I was meant to link.

        also about why starting strength isn't the best program (specifically the program, not the book is that it is too lower body focused, specifically, its funny to say, it develops your ass disproportionately more then any other muscle groups. and you're encouraged to reach a bodyfat of around 17%, so you will have to put on fat if you're bellow that, or lose fat if you're above that (bulking does actually does help build muscle for beginners, and for the advanced, it is 100% required where you will cut after, but still might not be what you're after reading from here

        Alan thrall. His best advice was that your program isn't bad.
        Basically, you do everything you can do make sure your program is successful

        . you will still make good gains if you don't want to get fat dont worry)

              Ok real talk what the fuck? Even in the sets where I go to failure, the first few reps are fast and easy, then a couple of grinding ones that take 3-4 seconds each, and the last one takes maybe 5-7 seconds. All in all, the entire set doesn't take more than 35 seconds, even with failure.

Even tires but dont know what to do with half those things. Did some basis back stuff a couple of days ago and felt really good lat activation. Would love to add more to my program. Dont even really know how to specifically search for exercises for that kind of equipment not just bodyweight alone or just with a bar. Cant watch any more videos of just 50 slightly different push ups

            The science isn't worthless but you have to be able to interpret it, which fitness conmen are too stupid to do. It's all just clickbait. Just read the articles yourself - if you're genuinely interested in your training you won't find them boring, and you only have to skim them anyway most of the time.

    The one who doesn’t have a 10 minute video talking about the why you should NOT do X and have the last 4 seconds showing you the correct form. Sadly it has become all too common, people think they can make a living out of this so they will never show you the best way to do something, or an optimal routine. Rather they show you tiny bits and try to sell you their program. It’s all so boring honestly.

    Just avoid all this shit like a plague. Much more likely to give you analysis paralysis and make you insecure about everything rather than telling you anything of value. Lifting was solved years ago, and it's actually very simple. However, these grifters still need to churn out regular content, so they muckrake and play on your sense of FOMO to have something to upload.

    The only worth these guys have are form videos, and even then they're like 18 minutes of fluff and 90 seconds of what you actually came to see.

    Kyriakos and maybe some strongmen who have their channels, purely for motivation/entertainment. If you want advice, leave YouTube and any other social media behind. These "bodybuilder advisors" are all mentally ill narcissists trying to sell you something and/or compensate for their bottled trauma by gathering worthless online appraisal through posing as "natties" whilst obviously using steroids. Just stop stuffing your face if you're fat or add healthy calories if too skinny, do any form of training REGULARLY without letting your ego get in the way and you'll be perfectly fine. And if you need something to watch during a break - don't. Go out and enjoy some nature.

    Derek from MorePlatesMoreDates.
    He is full of amazingly accurate information such as "keto nukes your free test levels", based on the bloodwork of a couple of youtube grifters. What a guy.

    How important is the food? Lets say Im going to bust my ass on workouts but never eat "enough" (Im not fat and dont eat too much)

    As in every day I usually get my 3 4 eggs in the morning, a bacon cheese toast, fruits veggies. Otherwise the rest of the day I dont usually eat much and am pretty sedentary. What will happen If I add a bunch of working out, last time I did something like this I turned into a skeleton

    I jist cant figure out calories bros and stick to meal plans

    Is it a good idea to pick one exercise and just spam that? For me it would be OHP woth dumbbells, I have good adjustable dbs at home. 2days focused volume, 2days on weight. Then daily pullups, pushups, abs, db curls

    Would that be a smart thing to do? All I want in life is big fucking shoulders

    Jeff Nippard is an adorable little scamp who will give you good advice. Never bought any of his ebooks though, just watched his videos on youtube.

    Me. Yeah. I'm kind of a big deal in progressive podcasting circles. I hang with some big youtubers. People like Cenk Uygur from the TYT Podcast have interviewed me several times and I think I would consider him to be my close friend.
