In this episode, I talk with Paul Revelia from Pro Physique. Paul is a natural pro bodybuilder and contest prep coach. Paul and I recently met in Austin Texas, we started off the episode talking about that weekend and the benefits of being around like minded people. I can't stress the importance of seeking out positive influences enough! We also dug into the story behind how Paul left his office job to become a full time online coach. We discussed the differences between prepping men vs women and finished up with a few tips on how to be a successful online coach in 2017. If you enjoyed the show, please remember to leave a 5 star review!

In this episode, I sit down with serial fitness entrepreneur Cory Gregory. You might know Cory from his days as the president of Muscle Pharm or his new company Max Effort Muscle. Cory has done it all in the fitness industry as a trainer, gym owner, supplement company president, cover model, bodybuilder, powerlifter, etc. Success leaves clues. I always enjoy talking with people like Cory because you find a lot of similarities between high achievers - hard work, discipline, self development and always taking advantage of opportunities. This episode is filled with information that can help you take a step forward in your training and life as well! As always, if you enjoy the show, please leave a 5 star review and tell one friend about the podcast. Thank you!

In this episode, I answer questions I received from my newsletter subscribers.

Q 1 – Fake Weights

Q 2- Isaac: Hey Kyle, during deadlifts I find that my form is inconsistent. A lot of the time the 1st rep always looks better than subsequent reps. What would you recommend? Resetting after each rep? Thanks man. Thoroughly enjoy your content!

Q 3- Nick: Kyle, What courses did you have to take in college for your degree and which one(s) do you think have translated most to your actual career? 

Q 4 – A few people….Best accessory work to improve your squat, bench and deadlift. **Read Article: http://www.kylehuntfitness.com/the-9-best-assistance-exercises-for-raw-powerlifting/

Q 5 – Conner: Where do you think Youtube Fitness and Fitness social media will be in 5, 10, 15 years? Do you see it fading away or remaining a staple in the industry? Such an interesting space in social media, very saturated.

Q 6 – Katie: My question is, do you think everyone should eventually transition to intuitive eating? Or can macro tracking be something that is "okay" to practice forever?

Q 7 – Kevin:  In regards to programming, how often, if ever, do you build full Training blocks with main movement variations acting as the main movement and take it through the full range of hypertrophy, strength and peaking? For example just for fun right now I'm using front squat, wide grip bench and block pulls as my main movements and plan on doing a 12 week program ending in a peak where I can test my maxes on these variations. Then I will go back to another 12 weeks and plug in my main movements and start back at hypertrophy for those. Hope this makes sense. Have a good week and can't wait for the podcast! Kevin

Q 8 – Guy: I understand the concept of refeed, and why we need to program that after a while. But how can someone judge by how much his metabolism adapted to a specific diet/training? The formula you use for BMR and flexible dieting doesn't take that into account does it? Wouldn't that make the transition from cutting to bulking a bit tricky?

In this episode, I talk about how I try to balance everything I have going on in life. I dig deep in this one. The truth is, it's really hard to be a good dad, run a successful business and still make progress in the gym. I'm not perfect, but I have a pretty good system down. I think you are going to enjoy this episode a lot. Please make sure you are subscribed to the show!

In this episode, I sit down with 10 year NFL veteran Heath Evans. Heath was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks and played 10 years with other stops in Miami, New England and New Orleans. Now Heath is an analyst for NFL Network. We had a great talk about how his training and Nutrition has changed since retiring, why the Patriots always win, the importance of taking care of your body, why there is more to the concussion issue the media portrays, and more.

In this episode, I answer the following questions from my newsletter subscribers. 

Subscribe to my newsletter here: http://www.kylehuntfitness.com/the-big-3/

Questions:

Q1: Isaac:  Do you have any experience (yourself or others) with step counting as a way to measure activity level. Do you think it is useful or does it become obsessive?

Q2: Garrett: Do you think it would benefit a powerlifter to train on competition brand equipment such as elkio or commercial gym equipment 

Q3: Don:  Mobility vs flexibility .... Differences and which one is more important

Q4: Mike: Given the huge amount of information (and misinformation) available online and the fact that society stresses making well-informed, researched decisions, what's your advice for silencing the overthinking and just picking one program to put all of my effort into?

Q5: Multiple people – How flexible is too flexible with your nutrition?
