In this episode, I sit down with the director of branding and marketing for Gamma Labs, Sal Triolo. We had a great conversation. I wanted to have Sal on the show because we have a lot in common and always have epic conversations when we are together. We started out the show talking about why there is REAL 24 Karat Gold in Gamma Labs new pre workout 24K. We then spent some time talking about MMA, wrestling and of course training. Sal also laid out the strategy Conor McGregor can use to be competitive with Floyd Mayweather...

In this episode, I sit down with Jorge Rosado. This was a great conversation! We covered so much content, it would take an essay to write it all out for you. The overlaying theme of this episode is improvement - be honest with yourself, take a helicopter view on your life, and make changes to improve.

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

Sign up for the newsletter here: http://www.kylehuntfitness.com/flexibledietingmanual/

Questions from the show:

1 Alain: What are your thoughts on the highly popularized YouTube strength standards (bench 225, squat 315, and deadlift 405 -all for reps)? Realistic? 

2 Nick: (1) You're thoughts on expos like the Arnold? And would you ever have a booth or complete there? (2) Dumbbells vs barbells, should you do both? (3) How important is stretching and warming up? Specially to prevent injury or to improve your lifts? (4) What is the top necessary equipment you need to bring to the gym?

3 Mike: How important is sleep for training?

4 Ian and Don: Would love some advice/guidance on nutrition and eating on a day of a powerlifting meet. (24 hour vs 2 hour)

5 A Few People: How to decide what weight class to compete in?

6 John: Hey Kyle my question is about social media. I am designing a trading card game similar to yugioh or Pok√©mon if you have ever played those and I'm trying to get a bigger following what is the best way to do that? Second question is that I'm designing a bodybuilding card game where you collect meals sleep and workouts to get your "gainz" lol do you ever play board games and would you play one about bodybuilding? 

7 Kurt: How often do you feel DOMS after your workouts? 

8 Victor:  What is your take on Christian McCafferys 10 reps on the bench press portion of the NFL combine? Does it accurately depict his future at the running back position?  

9 Mitch: I had the question about why powerlifters, bodybuilders, etc. don't incorporate wild game into their diet? Lower fat content and organic.

10 A few people asked: I do powerlifting programs but I wanna grow my arms. How would you go about combining the two?

11 Issac: Thanks for answering my previous question! I would like to ask what to do when I get buried by linear progression, should I move on to periodization? For a little bit of context my lifts are definitely what most people would call novice, but I am a small guy (48kg).

12 Ethan: What was your motivation when you started cross fit and would you ever consider going back to it?
