Athlean X is STILL Using Fake Weights! 🧢

The Truth Behind the Gimmicks

If you’re a fitness enthusiast, chances are you’ve heard of Athlean X. The popular fitness brand, created by Jeff Cavaliere, has gained a massive following over the years. But recently, there have been rumors circulating that Athlean X is still using fake weights to demonstrate their exercises. Let’s take a closer look at the controversy and separate fact from fiction.

Unraveling the Fake Weights Saga

The claims of Athlean X using fake weights first came to light in 2022, when a video went viral showing J.J. Watt, a renowned athlete, effortlessly lifting what appeared to be heavy dumbbells. Critics pointed out that the weights seemed unusually light for someone of Watt’s caliber. This sparked a heated debate, with some accusing Athlean X of using props to deceive their audience.

The Athlean X Timeline of Gimmicks

To fully understand the controversy, let’s take a journey through the timeline of alleged gimmicks used by Athlean X. It’s important to note that these claims are not proven facts but rather allegations made by skeptical viewers.

– Curlean X: One of the earliest controversies involved the “Curlean X” program, which claimed to provide incredible gains in a short period. Critics argued that these claims were unrealistic and based on pseudoscience. While some users reported positive results, others remained skeptical.

– Tempo Reps and Time Under Tension: Athlean X’s emphasis on tempo reps and time under tension received mixed reviews. Some fitness experts praised the approach, citing its potential benefits for muscle growth. However, others dismissed it as a marketing strategy without significant scientific backing.

– Allegations of Fake Weights: The most recent controversy revolves around the use of fake weights in Athlean X’s videos. While some argue that the videos are merely for instructional purposes and don’t represent real weight lifting, others believe it’s a deceptive tactic to promote their programs.

Separating Fact from Fiction

While the claims of Athlean X using fake weights continue to circulate, it’s important to approach the situation with critical thinking. It’s plausible that the weights used in their videos are not representative of their true capabilities, as they may prioritize proper form and technique over lifting heavy weights for demonstration purposes.

It’s worth noting that Athlean X has not directly addressed the allegations of using fake weights. However, the brand has gained a significant following due to Jeff Cavaliere’s expertise and the effectiveness of their programs for many individuals who have achieved remarkable results.

Putting the Science Back in Strength

Whether or not Athlean X is using fake weights, it’s essential to focus on the science-backed principles of strength training. Proper form, progressive overload, and consistency are key factors in achieving fitness goals. Instead of getting caught up in controversy, it’s best to concentrate on evidence-based practices that have stood the test of time.


In the realm of fitness, controversies are bound to arise, and Athlean X is no exception. While allegations of using fake weights continue to circulate, it’s crucial to approach the situation with an open mind. Regardless of the truth behind the rumors, focusing on proven training methods and staying consistent will undoubtedly yield the best results on your fitness journey. Remember, the most important thing is to keep pushing yourself, chest up, shoulders back, and stay aboard the Gain Train!

Joe Defranco needs to hit YouTube hard. He’s the legit version of Jeff with real athletes he’s actually trained.

Jason Vichinsky June 19, 2023 - 2:15 am

it seems possible that sometimes he uses fake because he has probably already had his actual work out then may need to do several takes for these videos

yurba mate June 19, 2023 - 2:15 am

When I first started my fitness lifestyle, I used to follow Jeff, because he made it sound interesting with all his "putting the science back into fitness" bs. But, the more I've learned from other sources, the more I've come to realize all that science crap is bs.

Alex Griffin June 19, 2023 - 2:15 am

Jo P June 19, 2023 - 2:15 am

It’s just 90’s man. It’s not like he’s trying to do that with 130’s or 140’s

Naraya Suiryoku June 19, 2023 - 2:15 am

Ronnie could do 200s for reps, with pretty decent form.

Sanju Editz June 19, 2023 - 2:15 am

This is literally what Max Ecueda always wants to shove down his viewers. His fanboys never stop defending him.

Genuinely disappointing. I started off the YT fitness rabbit hole with Athlean X but as I got older I started noticing a lot of 'science'…

Vijay Salunkhe June 19, 2023 - 2:15 am

I have been lifting for 1.5 yrs and can flat bench 100 lbs dbs for 6-7 with a proper form and controlling weights at 148lbs bw. Idky Revival thinks that Jeff at 170lbs bw can't flat bench 90lbs with this 3:16 bullshit as it may when he has 25 yrs of experience???

The mayo monster June 19, 2023 - 2:15 am
