Who is Trainwreckstv?

When you train, your muscle fibers can change slightly. However, they don't usually change over between slow twitch and fast twitch fibers. What usually happens is a shift between the two fast twitch fiber types.

Trainwreckstv was born in Austin, Texas USA, on 20 December 1990, so under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius and holds American nationality – he is popular for his Twitch channel on which he mostly livestreams his “League of Legends”, “Halo”, and “World of Warcraft” gameplays.

Early life and education

Trainwreckstv hasn’t said much about his early life and teenage years with the public, as he prefers to keep his personal matters to himself. He is said to have been bullied throughout high school, which is what made him start going to the gym to become stronger. He never talks about his parents, and hasn’t mentioned having any siblings which make people believe that he is an only child.

After he matriculated from a local high school, Trainwreckstv decided not to go to college but to pursue his career online.

Career of a Twitcher

Trainwreckstv’s career began the moment he launched his Twitch channel in June 2015 – Twitch is a platform on which you go live and most people use it to livestream while playing video games. You can make quite a sum of money if you have a lot of subscribers, and a lot of viewers during your livestream videos.

Trainwreckstv’s channel is currently followed by more than 300,000 people, while he is following nearly 400 livestreamers. He has 86 videos saved on the channel, which mostly feature him playing video games such as “PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds” and “World of Warcraft” while there are also some podcast videos uploaded.

Another important part of Trainwreckstv career is his YouTube channel, though it doesn’t have as many subscribers as his Twitch channel – he launched the channel on 17 November 2015 and it so far counts over 35,000 subscribers and more than 4.5 million views on all his videos combined. On this channel he mostly uploads videos from his podcast – the last video he uploaded is nearly 5.5 hours long, and is entitled “Mitch Jones & Pokelawls Drama Steven Crowder Demonetization – Scuffed Podcast Episode 44”.

Hall of Fame on his Twitch channel

Trainwreckstv has a Hall of Fame section on his Twitch channel, which is there to honor the people who donated the most money to him – first place is currently held by the person who goes by the nickname THANKYOU693 as he (or she) has donated $77,300, in second place is A7 who donated $7,500, and the third place goes to Arcani9e who donated $4,375. There are five more people who have donated over $1,000, and over 10 others who’ve donated more than $500.

Questions and Answers section

Trainwreckstv also has a Questions and Answers section on his Twitch channel, with some interesting and funny answers. Besides his height and weight, people have asked him how he manages to look that good to which he responded ‘Steroids, Proactive, and a lot of Extenze’. He responded with the same sentence to the ‘Why are you so ugly?’ question. When asked about his best friend in gaming, he responded ‘your girlfriends’. The last interesting question in his Questions and Answers section is ‘Why is your nose so big?’ to which he says ‘I played college soccer, it was a gift to increase my oxygen intake while I reached speeds that a normal nose could not handle.

What is his real name?

Trainwreckstv is one of those YouTubers and Twitch stars who have managed to remain secretive about their real name, and who haven’t shared it with the public even after years of livestreaming and uploading videos. Though many of his fans want to know his real name (for unknown reasons), Trainwreckstv doesn’t seem to care, and simply ignores those requests.

Personal life and relationships

Trainwreckstv is one of the most secretive YouTubers and Twitchers out there as he hasn’t shared anything about his past or present affairs with the public. He did make an exception two years ago when he uploaded a picture with his girlfriend, and added the description ‘I’m crazy about her’. He has never spoken about the girl after that, nor uploaded a picture of the two together, which is why his fans believe that the two broke up some time ago. Trainwreckstv is rumored to be dating another popular Twitch star now, but this hasn’t been confirmed by him.

Judging by his social media accounts, he appears to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.


Although there are not many controversies surrounding Trainwreckstv, he was once suspended from using Twitch after he posted a controversial rant against female streamers.

Other likes and interests

Trainwreckstv is a huge fan of food and loves Japanese cuisine the most – his personal favorite food is sushi. He is an animal lover, and one can find many pictures featuring animals on his Instagram account. One thing which interests him a lot besides gaming is exercising – Trainwreckstv can usually be found either playing video games in his room or exercising at a gym. He enjoys watching TV series and movies as well, while his favorite TV series is “Smallville” and his favorite movie is any from the “Harry Potter” franchise. He loves travelling and has managed to visit most of the places written on his ‘to visit’ list. Even though one would might not guess, Trainwreckstv also loves to read, and you can find a lot of quotes from the books he’s read on his Instagram account.

Appearance and net worth

Trainwreckstv is currently 28 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, is 6ft 1in (1.85m) tall, and weighs around 200lbs (90kgs).

According to authoritative sources, his current net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, and is steadily rising thanks to his YouTube and Twitch channels, while he also makes money by selling his own merchandise on his website.

Besides YouTube and Twitch, Trainwreckstv is also quite active on several popular social media platforms – he launched his Twitter account in June 2015, and has so far gathered more than 55,000 followers and tweeted nearly 6,000 times. His Instagram account is followed by more than 13,000 people, while he has uploaded over 250 pictures onto it – he is also running a Facebook page which now counts over 5,000 fans.

Trainwreckstv is also running his own website – – on which you can buy his merchandise, and contact the popular Twitch star if you have any questions or suggestions.

Lets make this simple. People who have well developed fast twitch muscle fibres can run fast and jump higher than those who do not. However, just because you don't have great genetics to start with, it doesn't mean you can't develop the ones you do have into a great vertical jump.

In this article I will explain the difference between the three main fiber types, how they work, and how you can apply this knowledge to focus your training. There are many things you can do to maximize the athletic potential though so don't worry too much if you are starting behind the genetic 8 ball when it comes to having loads of fast twitch muscle fibers.

The Three Main Muscle Fiber Types

Although there are further micro variations in muscle fiber types, the three main ones are:

1) Type 1: Slow Twitch Fibres

2) Type 2a: Fast Twitch Fibers

3_ Type 2b: Fast Twitch Fibers

Each one has its own characteristics and is suited to a particular type of movement.

Type 1 fibers are slow to contract (hence, slow twitch), and can sustain muscular contractions for an extended period of time. This makes them ideal for endurance or longer distance and time events. They also contain large and numerous mitochondria which aid in their oxidative metabolism (the use of oxygen). These types of fibers are fatigue resistant but are only able produce a relatively low level of force output.

Type IIa muscle fibers are, as the name would suggest, fast twitch fibers (FTF's). However they are in the middle of the muscle fiber spectrum, as they are less fatigue resistance, produce more muscular force, and contract at a faster speed than slow twitch fibers, but not quite as much as type IIb fibers.

The type IIb fibers are the most easily fatigued out of all the fibers but also generate the most power. These are most heavily recruited for activities that require an all out burst of power over a very short period of time.

It is the type IIb fibers that are primarily responsible for your vertical jump performance, although your type IIa's also have a small role. As such it is the type II's that you should be targeting with your training.

7 METHODS FOR TRAINING fast twitch muscle fibers

There are a number of proven methods that target the fast twitch muscle fibers (FTF's). By incorporating some of these training techniques into your program you will ensure that your muscles are provided with the right type of training stimulus for developing your vertical jump.

1. train heavy

Train Twitch Ethnicity

Generally speaking, the heavier you lift the greater the recruitment of fast twitch muscle fibres. Obviously the heavier the load you are using the more force is required to lift it - hence the greater recruitment of the fast twitch muscle fibres.

The exception to this is if you are doing ballistic weighted exercises such as barbell jump squats. In these instances it is ok to use a lower % of your 1RM - see the next point.

You know this guys is recruiting a LOT of Fast Twitch muscle fibers!

2. train fast

Whether it is lifting a weight, skipping, jumping, bounding, sprinting, or throwing, try and do it flat out. They don't call them fast twitch muscle fibres for nothing - train fast if you want to develop the fast twitch muscles. Logically this one is pretty obvious. For example if you wanted to train to be a better sprinter you wouldn't spend your time doing too much jogging.

3. train eccentrically

Eccentric training refers to emphasizing the work done as you lower a weight or descend in a jump. For weighted work this would be done using bands to accelerate gravity, or using drop and catch motions such as reactive squats. For jumping exercises the eccentric portion is emphasized in movements such as the various types of depth jump and altitude landings (see next point).

Other eccentric training methods you can use in the gym include slowly lowering your weights (i.e. taking 6+ seconds to lower each rep) and using weight releasers to overload the eccentric portion of your reps. Weight releasers are attachments you hang off the end of the barbell that will release the weight at the bottom so that you are in effect lowering a heavier load than you are then lifting. They are really great for heavy singles as you can lower more than you can lift.

4. train with plyometrics

Plyometrics involves the activation of the stretch-shorten reflexive response to create more powerful contractions. These contractions are primarily the domain of the fast twitch muscle fibers so doing this type of training will really stimulate those type II's.

5. train with contrast load training

This is one of our favorite training techniques for increasing your vertical jump. To use contrast load training you typically pick a heavy weighted exercises and follow that up with a jumping exercise. So for example you might perform a very heavy set of squats, say 75-95% of your 1RM, rest 1-2 minutes, and then perform a lighter more explosive movement such as unweighted jump squats. The initial heavy set fires up a process known as potentiation that triggers higher recruitment of fast twitch fibers in the subsequent exercise.

Potentiation is ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE TRAINING METHODS for increasing your vertical jump. To find out more about how to harness this for rapid vertical jump gains you need to read our book Game Changers. There are some amazing jump training methods covered in this book.

6. Over speed training

Overspeed training is where you add some form of assistance such as having a partner pull you along, using bands to pull you along, or simply running down a slight hill. This trains your body to movefaster than it otherwise would have by forcibly recruiting the FTF's for the extra speed, and it reinforces to your brain how to send those messages that fire up the FTF's.

A great way to use overspeed training to develop your vertical jump and your FT muscle fibres is via band assisted jumps.

7. Mental Training

If you have ever seen an Olympic lifter before a lift you will know what a psyche up is. This is part of mental training. Those lifters are essentially getting into a frame of mind that tells their bodies to literally fire up the fast twitch fibers.

Scam Train Twitch

It works equally in your jumping and training. Spend 20 seconds before a jump mentally preparing for the effort and you will jump higher than if you just go and do it. Why does this work? Because the psyche up is a method of getting your brain ready to send the signals to the fast twitch muscles that they are about to do some maximum effort work.

the best methods for increasing your vertical jump

The 7 methods listed here are all great ways to develop your jumping ability. But if you want something more specific that will really blow your mind with the results you can achieve than you are probably looking for something along the lines of our Game Changers book.

The training methods in this book will put insane inches on your vertical jump in weeks - not months and years. There is literally nothing else like this available. To find out more click the image below.



Train Twitch Net Worth

In order to get the most out of your vertical jump training, you should try to follow these principles. A vertical jump is a powerful, type II muscle fiber based contraction that takes place in a split second. The most effective and efficient way to train therefore is to ensure you fully develop those fiber types. Anything else is just wasted time and energy.
