Questions:

Sean: If I’m training first thing in the morning and my goal is mass gain (hypertrophy) should I try to get in a good amount of carbs the night before? Or any nutrition recommendations?

Charlie: I train at 2am – 3am before going to work. I don’t eat until noon – 8pm. Should I get something in me after that early AM training? Or is it alright to wait until noon? I’ve been waiting and my body and stomach handle it well.

Brandon: What does a current day of eating look like for you?

Samuel: How come we don’t see more IFBB pros especially the men’s categories using a flexible dieting approach? You see more and more women doing it but not men?

Austin: You talk about flexible dieting and tracking macros a lot, is there ever a time to follow a structured meal plan?

Gil: How do you prepare top sirloin so it’s not so tough to chew? Last time I grilled it, mediumish doneness, it was not easy to chew.

Trey: How long did you train people in person before you segmented into the online business? Also, did you have a large social media presence when you initially started the online business? When you do your bodybuilding accessories do you worry about RPE, train to failure or just chase a pump in some cases?

Shawn: Hey Kyle, how often would you recommend someone train in the higher rep ranges for the main lifts (5+ reps)? The reason I ask is I feel I am big enough for my height (5'11) and simply just need to get stronger for my weight class which is the u105kg. Thanks, Kyle.

Adam: How do you balance between old-school methods and new age research?

Justin: If you were not in the fitness industry what would you be doing right now?

Dylan: What are your favorite books, podcasts, and exercise in the gym?

Will: When you go out to a bar, what do you drink?

Mitch: Powerlifting has grown in popularity so much in recent years, what do you think is the future is for the sport?

Luke: Do you waste time on anything unproductive?

Miles: What has been the biggest challenge being a dad?

Questions from the show: 

Seth: With IPF worlds being this week, what is the biggest consistency you see between the top lifters? Do you think the higher level you achieve in powerlifting the more you should train with game day equipment? Such as kilo plates, combo racks, and power bars? When are you planning to compete next and if soon how is the prep going? 

Christopher: What’s up Kyle? So me being in the military I tend to travel a lot. Currently in key west for the month. What are some go-to meals or tips for nutrition when living out of a hotel for a month? Also as a fellow Bills fan how do you feel about the upcoming season and the pick of Allen over Rosen? Love the podcast man keep it up and everything you do.

Mark: When peaking for a meet is pure linear periodization better than dup? I  know you really like dup and I do as well but I'm only referring to a peak when preparing for a meet. 

Bryan: My question, I’m curious to know what are your personal goals for powerlifting this year? Any lifting numbers you are looking to hit and which lift do you feel needs the most work?

Mark: Hi Kyle! Love your podcast! A few questions...Do you have a top 3 list of protein-packed foods that are your go-to snacks/meals when you are busy and don’t have time to meal prep? 

2.) I do weight training/total body workouts 3 times per week (45-minute sessions).  I use apps like Nike Training and Fitstar to assemble my training routines. Despite my level of effort to push and complete my sessions, it seems like I never see gains in muscle mass that I would expect. Thoughts on what could help or what I might be doing wrong? 

Molly: What do you recommend adding into your diet initially when beginning to reverse diet?!? ie, what macronutrient and then specific foods…should it be fruit, low gi- carbs like lentils etc.

James: Hey Kyle my question is regarding peaking for a powerlifting meet. How long should a peaking section in a program be? And after peaking how long should you have before you peak again?  I ask because I have 2 meets 9 weeks apart. 1 is central championships and the other is provincials. In order to qualify for Nationals, I need to do both meets.

Nick: 1. Thoughts on your good friend Nick Wright cutting down and starting a new chapter in his fitness career? 2. What makes a good pre-workout supplement? We all use them here and I saw that you switched brands for your pre-workout, why did you switch pre-workouts? 3. What are three fad diets going on right now that you wouldn’t recommend people trying and why? 4. What is one food that is a staple in your every day eating?  Like Jeff Nippard has kiwis. What would be the one thing Kyle Hunt is known for eating?

Tyler:  Did you watch FinalX this weekend? Dake and Taylor both compete Saturday. How about things you should know going into your first meet, such as things to bring/wear/expect?
