    What I admire of both guys is the intensity on their workouts and also the
    fact they are big partners and motivate each other. The form looks kinda
    sloppy is true but obviously it works for them as per the results, if I
    would train like this; i am gonna break all my bones.
    I guess they do not always train like this videos which they usually post,
    but they do when they compite for the show and they proceed to lift as
    heavy as they can do and they do not give a shit about the form because it
    is with other objetives on this cases. Just my opinion and what I can
    notice since my point of view. Excuse any mistake in my english.

    They do work hard but the sad thing is no matter how much you watch your
    diet and training, you’ll never look like this without steroids

    Never thought I’d see someone who trained with worse form then Branch.
    Branch actually looks like he’s at least contracting his muscles, Johnnie
    just seems to be twitching the weights so he can keep up with Branch.

    Take home message: Don’t do what Branch and Johnnie do, because you’re not
    Branch or Johnnie.

    These guys are in a totally different league than even most of the elites.
    If you think how they train (form, ToT, etc) is foolish and that they don’t
    know what they’re doing, you’re kidding yourself.

    don’t they compete against each other? if so then does it really make sense
    for them to train together?
