In this episode, I sit down with USAPL powerlifter Kristen Dunsmore. As a whole, powerlifting has exploded in popularity in recent years. In that time, the growth with the female population has really taken off as well. In the show we talked about some reasons why that is. In addition to that, we also touched on how Kristen went from a cardio bunny to bad ass powerlifter, the importance of just signing up for your first meet, why it's a good idea to always listen to your body (don't ignore injuries), the benefit to sticking with a program and how drinking liquor can help keep you sober...

In this episode, I sit down with the author of 531, Jim Wendler. This is one of my favorite podcasts to date! Jim has made a huge impact of the fitness industry. His 5/3/1 program is one of, if not the most popular strength training program of all time. Some of the topics covered in the show - Jim's experience as a walk on Division 1 football player, the importance of basing your training off from solid principles, why the basics always win, the evolution from the original 5/3/1 to his new book 5/3/1 Forever, why NCAA athletes should get paid, and more...

In this episode, I answer questions from Instagram (@huntfitness) 

Here are the questions:

Q1: joe_tsa - Where do you see the direction of the fitness industry going next?

Q2: ashlynbrierre - Which is easier on your knees front or back squats?

Q3: mo_a89 - Implementing controlled cardio in a powerbuilding program a good idea?

Q4: i_am_ray_wong - When should one reset their day's macros if for example one has a a few overnight shifts throughout the week. Keep it consistent and reset macros when it's a new day or dependent on person sleep cycle.

Q5: bee_stayfit - Are you going to train for another meet in the near future?

Q6: brandonpapp_ - When do you recommend moving up in a weight class?

Q7: nicholasjames45 – My question is about chest press form and the high arch. I see a lot of people giving people a hard time about the huge arch. What is the right form to use to get strength on your bench? My other question is when is okay to take your butt off the bench when your pressing? I saw you do it a couple times in your past videos. I do it sometimes too but I've been trying not too.

Q8: chrisgates14 – I got into training late -- not until my late 20's. I've heard people suggest that being late to the game effects the amount of progress & gains you can make in the gym (you miss the major growth period in your teens/early 20's, testosterone levels decrease, etc). Is that true? If so, how drastically?

Q9: 8talltines - Do you think your podcast would be successful if you didn't already have a following on another platform? Reason for my question is, I want to start a hunting podcast, but I don't have a following on any other platform. Thank you for your input!

Q10: gijohns3 - Best way to incorporate cardio in a routine? And also where do get epic swim trunks haha 

Q11: americanbeauty37 - How do you implement an 80/20 IIFYM approach to eating? More specifically do you calculate 80% of each macro or can the 80% be determined from total calories?

Q12: edwardgardner6190 - How strong are you?

Q13: yuryk0877 - What kind of mobility/warmup/stretching drills do you incorporate pre-workout (upper and lower body) and what post-workout routines do you do for better recovery after lifting?

Q14: erickmandoval - What's your biggest problem with the fitness industry today? 

Q15: corey_perfection – Did your chest get that big just from benching all these years?

Q16: wavvy.boy - Best excessive for legs and calfs.

Q17: rubenbrammer - How do you do your HIIT? If you do HIIT?

Q18: tcpower_91 - Thoughts on the Wendler 5/3/1 program?

Q19: grambi00 - Have you ever had a massage before? Sports massage? Deep tissue? If so, did you find them helpful, especially with lifting?
