In this episode, I answer questions submitted from my newsletter.

Sign up for my newsletter here: www.KyleHuntFitness.com 

 

Podcast Questions:

*Question 1.) 2017 Raw Nationals Review + My thoughts on DLB competing in the USAPL. 

*Question 2.) A- With more recent studies coming out each day about how bad sugar is for you and how backward our guidelines for nutrition are, do you think we should follow more of a higher fat and lower carb diet rather than this low-fat medium carb medium protein diet the doctors have been feeding us since the 50s? I hear a lot of talks that higher fat diets are more beneficial for a healthier lifestyle (I’m not talking about keto). B- Are whey protein shakes used to help meet protein goals, cost effective? Or is it cheaper to get your protein from only food base sources.

*Question 3.) I know you are an evidence-based coach but are there any aspects of “bro science” that you use for yourself or clients? Why or why not?

*Question 4.) A- In your opinion does the squat help or aid in the deadlift? Do you think for example if you only did deadlifts in your program without squats and then added squatting to the program you would see an improvement in your deadlift? B- Have you ever watched Steve Austin’s broken skull ranch? If so have you ever thought of doing it and how do you think you would fair?

*Question 5.) How long should you rest between sets when the goal is strength?

*Question 6.) What are your favorite movies to watch for motivation?

*Question 7.) How do you compensate carbs for fats or vice versa what is the exact equation? For example when you go over and trying to even it out through the following days, or planning on eating a bit more for a specific occasion? 

*Question 8.) Who are your favorite YouTubers? Furthermore, which do you think provide the most to their viewers?

Sep 29, 2017

In this episode, I go over how to create a strength training program from start to finish. Creating a program starts with asking the right questions. What is your goal? What has worked in the past? How much time can you dedicate to training? Once you have a good understanding of the details, you can dig into the training variables - intensity, volume, etc. 

This could be an entire year of podcasts, but hopefully, after listening to this episode you will be better capable of designing quality programs.
