Peter On Pole

Great vid as always!

Erek Downes

Can i have a t shirt all mine are dirty

Matt Le

Sal, in ancient times, fat men were revered for their wealth and status, and blessed by monks and Himalayan Yaks.

Anita Seth

Awwww shit Doug, you know it’s my favorite time of the week. It’s tshirt time!

Zoey S

If I get a free tshirt ill model it for you guys

Brad Bowen

This is hands down the best YouTube podcast knowledgeable group. I am a little salty I’ve been listening to mine pump since it was only on the podcast app and I’ve never won a free T-shirt but I still support

Николай Марков


SavageStylez Ero

What is the natural antimicrobial? I have acid reflux often and I would like to see if that would help.

Wilbington Romero

Thank you! You guys have helped me through this process.

Carl Bois Dor

Newly subscribed, I like what your guys are doing ??

Noel Roga

Nice to see alot of comment from fellow listeners. #algorithm

Ana shandiba

Sal, i think you look more healthy and young actually!

Daniel Contreras

Maps anabolic and the yach blessed shirt will surely give me waaaaayy bigger biceps! Love the podcast. Keep the great content coming!

joey salinas

It always blows my mind when you guys start talking about stuff you did a couple years ago and I'm like "Wtf have I really been listening THAT long??"

KYyva m rich

Get mobdro on ur smart tv

The Iron Force

These time stamps are off.

Can't believe we finally see Sal's bag. .? Fkks sake, that's an excessive amount of random supps to haul around everywhere ??‍♂️??

RaynenginSanDiego 333

Guys, I asked Thomas Delauer about this and he responded but hasn’t done a video I don’t believe, but I would love to see someone with modern day knowledge address mucoid
Plaque in the intestinal track and how it impacts nutrient uptake... Many if not
Most people don’t realize that the mucoid plaque build up prevents a large majority of the nutrient rich foods we eat from even being accessed from the Body and what can be done to get rid of this plaque build up and start reaping the full benefits of the quality foods we shell out for.... And I think the guy in the red looks thickest/softest.... And I was always told Bananas are the only food you could eat solely and survive on??‍♂️.... Big props if you can tackle the mucoid plaque!

Andrew Fine


Micheal Tzitz

How did I just discover you guys yesterday!? Your past episodes have helped explain things and methods soooo clearly. Definitely recommending you to my fellow workout partners.

Dan Robinson

I think the natural antimicrobial purple bottle is Heather's Tummy Tamers Peppermint Oil Capsules. it fits Justin's description of "embarrassing name" lol Sal can you confirm?

christine martin

Take your shirt off if your asking who is the fattest;)))))

Sabrina Fallone

I’m comment 53 but I really like Himalayan shirts and shipping them over to Canada is pretty pricy, so I imagine we would enjoy something like that over here. It’s very cold. I’m sure you’ve heard.

Hayden Knapps

Adam needs to put down that monk fruit water flavored with coffee .. but on a serious note, y’all have became my go-to resource when it comes to learning exercises & all the tips to be that much more effective. From the Jamal Liggin episode, to “30 days of Free coaching”, to not missing an episode and listening to some multiple times.

Ambar Ponti

You three are the coolest/handsomest, of all the unknown mind-pump, podcast, cast. Sal, Adam, and Doug. ?. I think that compliment deserves a shirt.

Josh Roeglin

LoL Adam starts the banter by fat shaming Sal, love it haha No Comment Comment

johnny De Paz

Sal, what’s the name of the purple bottle for IBS ? I use Ibgard and would like to give your mighty sups a try. Thank you

Dee Official16

I listen to your podcast when I work out. Keeps me motivated and focused! I was 210 lbs and now I’m 194 lbs. You guys really helped me enjoy the lifestyle and I can see myself doing this long term. Thank you so mush much for everything y’all do.

Fluffy Herrera

Justin's looking like the biggest and handsome dude this Episode!

Kc Cherian

Mind pump is amazing ! I love the show


My mind is blown by your knowledge and your tshirts

Morgan Bosstick

They always joke and tease that Justin is the handsome/hot one and Sal is the fat one...pshh, I watch the video podcasts just to see Sal!
Lol, love all you guys! Glad I found your podcast and your MAPS programs!!

Matthew Bonnar

pyramid training, 40 lbs 10 reps.... 50 lbs 10 reps ,...60 lbs 10 reps and repeat 3 times

Christian Tovar-Vargas

Does anyone know what the purple bottle is? Lol the mystery continues

KYyva m rich

Domino's Brooklyn style pizza is where it's at for real tho..

Infamous Flight

I literally just adjusted my calorie intake and macros today. And this video pops up

coincidence ? algorithm


Couple years from now, Mind Pump will reach JRE status and be offered some cash to move to Spotify

Time to Checkmate

I play something very similar to your deck. In my opinion a really good card, that is missing, is the Wildwood Scourge. Just drop it as a 1/1 for 2 Mana and see it grow whenever you gain a counter. I would also consider to cut out the Anguirus and add Stonecoil Serpant as they are very flexible. Other cards you could consider are: The First Iron Games and The Great Henge. Last but not least I like Vastwood Fortification, it's not the greatest card in the world, but its either a mana or a 1/1 counter, so it doe's good in our deck.


Im currently playing a selesnya counter deck which has no kaldheim cards in it yer, i think snakeskin is a good addition but im really not sure about fall of the impostor. Im posting this at the start of the video maybe i ll edit my comment but i think apparition is better in a very aggro deck ^^


me mum approves


The decktech starts at 4:15


It's funny that I got a 3 and a half minute ad about some work from home 5 hours a week a make 100k a year bs, and when I got back to video hello gg says, "is it just me or did that guy ramble on and on..." ?


The MTG Assistant for Mac OS any idea if will come out? Only windows :(

Keir Halewood

Everyone and his dog is running blizzard brawl and going snowy. Can you have a plus one deck without stonecoil? It's such a versatile card if you run it ram through is essential. Love Basris lieutenant but only if I run solidarity so 2 seems fine. I'm not a fan of the shambler in a plus one too slow. Great if you run live struck beast but not in a plus one deck. Stonecoil better in that slot.


I've been playing Abzan counters, Grakmaw, Vorinclex, Polukranos and Nissa make it more resilient to board wipes and removal.


My mom doesn't play magic though. ?

Robert Viscomi

This is super cool. Vorniclex or an Abzan variant by any chance? The wolf and hydra are pretty nuts with counters. And polukranos


Holy Crap Mom, Thanks for bringing me this great video!!!!!!!!

Shen hue

How about Vorinclex? :P

Moritz Reichart

Whoop whoop

Tyrel Blaxis

Fall of the impostor is definitely not a playable competitive card, it's too slow against tier 1 deck. That just such a weak turn 3.
