In this episode, I sit down with elite powerlifter and YouTuber, Russel Orhii. Russ is getting ready to compete in the 83kg weight class at USAPL Raw Nationals in October. As always, we talk about a wide range of topics, but this one quote stood out to me - "Don't try to change the definition of success to fit your failures". Enjoy!

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

Questions on the show:

Q 1: A few people wanted to get my take on the McGregor vs Mayweather fight

Q 2: Kurt- I had a car accident and now, after 4 weeks, I am cleared to go to the gym again. How should I organize my training and nutrition? Before the accident, I was in the middle of a cutting phase, and in those weeks of inactivity, I have put on 5-7 lbs. Should I go straight into a cut or is that too much of losing muscle after not training for 4 weeks? 

Q3: Isaac - Hey Kyle, how do you see your career panning out for the rest of your life? Do you still see yourself primarily as a coach for the next 30 years to come? 

Q4: Jimmy - Hey Kyle, my question for the podcast would be about business and what are things you wish you would have been told about starting your own business. What are the biggest challenges in the first months of starting a business?

Q5: James @james_vetor - Hey Kyle my question is how to identify if a potential sponsor is a scam or legit? 

Q6: Chris - 100 day Cut, lost 20 pounds. What recommendations do you have for when someone finishes a program? Would it be to hop right back into another one? Or maybe freestyle it in the gym for a while and just have fun?

Q7: John - if there is a day when you know you will over-eat (let's say, thanksgiving for example), is it better to lift and convert those extra calories into muscle instead of fat or do extra cardio to prevent the accumulation of fat? When would the ideal timing of either be (before a meal, next morning, etc.)?

Q8: Dillon – Hey Kyle, my question is when is the best time to use a slingshot in bench training?

Q9: Ryan – Hey Kyle, with the rise in the powerlifting standards in recent years, what type of commitment does it take to be competitive?

In this episode, I talk with cinematographer Zack Kravits. Zack and I met last month in Austin Texas. After digging into some of his work, I was blown away by his video quality. Zack is creating some of the best videos in the YouTube fitness space right now. In the social media era we live in, learning how to create better content is huge and it's just going to get more important! The future "resumé" is going to be directly tied to your social footprint. We talked a lot about how you can make higher quality videos without investing a ton of money into fancy equipment. Everyone starts somewhere. Don't expect the first time you try something to be great at it. At the heart of this episode, we dig into how being honest with yourself combined with following your true passion can lead to something great.

In this episode, I sit down with the founder and CEO of Elitefts.com, Dave Tate. We started off the conversation talking about social media marketing. Then we dug into the process of starting Elitefts, Dave detailed some of the struggles of building a brand from the ground up. The truth is, most people make entrepreneurship sound too easy. After that, we went over the process of outfitting a gym. How do you select the right equipment to make sure a gym is set up for success? We finished up talking about the growth of powerlifting. Is powerlifting really growing as fast as we think it is?
