YouTube Success and Fitness
Their fame on YouTube grew significantly and along with it came numerous opportunities to increase their net worth. In 2014, they became an international name and they even started making minor appearances in television shows. They also started to do commercials which led them to grow their brand. Eventually, the duo decided to start a clothing line business which they promoted through their YouTube channel. The Hodgetwins hoped that their actions would help inspire many of their aspiring entertainment and fitness followers.
When it comes to their fitness, they claim that everybody reacts differently to exercises. It is important to customize nutrition, rep ranges, and volume of the work-out because what may work for you won’t work for someone else. The Hodgetwins work on each body part twice a week, and their repetitions depend on what kind of movement they are doing. They are also firm believers of not training to failure, as they feel that it isn’t needed for optimal muscle growth. They also don’t do squats due to lower back injuries sustained while serving in the Marines, and propose to use high volume leg workouts instead.
The Hodgetwins don’t believe in eating too much protein, and only eat 120-140 grams for their bodyweight of 210 pounds. If they ate as much as their bodyweight suggests, the protein would be too much for the colon and kidneys. They say that it’s best to lower protein intake while finding the optimal amount needed to maintain growth. It’s easy to get carbs because they’re into everything, and one meal can also give all the fats needed for a day. Their main protein sources are eggs and lean meats.
They also prefer to carb up using vegetables, rice and legumes. They aim to eat home cooked meals, but if it isn’t an option a healthy meal from a restaurant will do. If they want to lose weight they lower their calorie intake along with a reduction of carbs. They also eat around six small meals each day.
Personal Lives and Social Media
It is known that both Hodgetwins have been married for over 15 years – Keith married Elizabeth in 2000 and they have three children. Kevin also married near the same time and has four children with his wife. The two often make it a point to set example to their families about nutrition, fitness and body image, sharing what they’ve learned with their families. The two of them agreed that Kevin is the more laid-back twin among the two, while Keith is more series.
Aside from their YouTube channel, they have a personal website which promotes some of their recent projects, including supplements, accessories, and a comic book. They also have social media accounts on websites such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, which showcase some of their daily thoughts and endeavors, as well as some of the recent events they’ve been to, as well as videos on fitness and nutrition.
