Jeff Cavaliere Fake Weights Controversy

Last summer there were several sites that accused Jeff Cavaliere of not only using fake weight but also of using ; Dan Brooks a London-based trainer wrote that according to a YouTube judge Jeff indeed used fake weights in some of his videos.

In the last couple of weeks there has been much, totally pointless, hand-wringing among the YouTube fitness community over whether Cavaliere uses fake weights in some of his videos. The YouTube judge and jury have decided he has – and he does appear to in some videos – but does it matter? I’d argue not.


Take, for example, a video of Cavaliere performing deadlifts which has been held up as evidence that he is using fake weights. The weight on the bar is not the issue. It’s the quality of advice which matters. In that sense, the advice he always gives regarding the deadlift is absolutely spot on.


What about his alleged use of ? Distractify published a story about people posting rumors about it on Facebook and Reddit.

“Jeff plays the great angle of being professional and acting like he cares. If he really cared he wouldn’t be lying to people about his personal steroid usage that is clear as day to anyone who has used gear themselves. Don’t get scammed peeps.”

Another user claimed none of Jeff’s clients has had similar results to him, “Not a single person he has trained has gotten similar results to him or passed him, It is hilarious how nobody questions that.”

Greg Doucette, another bodybuilder, and coach said he believed is not OK that Jeff uses fake weights, before adding that if he is indeed using fake weights, there might be more things he is lying about.

“Is Jeff in fact lying about anything else? I think he is, I made a natty or not video on Jeff Cavaliere, and now I’ve changed my freaking mind. I think he is not natural.”

Jeff responded to Greg’s claims with the following statement:

“You’ve levied some serious allegations here. I’m inviting you down to take whatever drug test you’d like for me to take. Don’t wait. Get on a plane and come down. I will pay for your flight and your hotel. I’ll even let you watch me pee in the cup if that’s your thing. I’ll let you bring your own videographer and chronicle the whole thing so you can upload the video to your channel and get the views.”
