In this episode, Derek and I catch up after a two-week break and answer questions from listeners. 

 

Questions on the show:

  1. In regards to doing squat and deadlift where you normally hold your breathe through the movement to brace. Do you do the same breathing pattern when your doing high rep work? When I'm working in a low rep range I have no problem. Breath in at the top, Brace, All the way down, All the way up, exhale, repeat. But when I do high rep, I get gassed doing this. Almost like when you try to blow up a bunch of balloons too quick. Should I do something different or do I just need to keep the same breathing pattern and get used to the high reps?
  2. I am getting back into lifting after taking a few years off. At my peak I was using PEDS and relatively well built. Since then I’ve shrunken up a bit but going back to my old routines I feel some size coming back quicker then I though just with proper diet and training. I’m interested what your approach would be for a veteran lifter in my situation. Is muscle memory a real thing, and if it is, what is the best approach to take advantage of it
  3. What is your advice for finding maintenance calories after a cut? Add in say one more meal or adjust macros within current meals to bring calories up to a more comfortable range?
  4. I’m dialed in 90% of the time but weekends with the wife gets tricky. If I end up hitting my cutting calories for the day but am lacking protein, would you slam a shake end of day or just be happy you stayed within your calories?
  5. Can autoregulation negate the need for a deload? At what point in one’s training career can autoregulation become a viable tool?

In this episode, I answer questions from listeners. Can you believe it is August already? Kids will be going back to school soon. Football season is starting. Summer goes by fast. Episode 400 is next week. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! 

Questions on the show: 

  1. I want a piece of cardio equipment for my house. I'm torn between a treadmill and a stationary bike. Is one better than the other?
  2. Are there any supplements that you know of that help reduce appetite? I'm in a fat-loss phase and constantly hungry. 
  3. Hey Kyle, I'm 45 years old, and in the past few years, I have really started to feel my age, especially in the gym. I know that is part of life, but what are your thoughts about TRT?
  4. Similar to you, I want to incorporate more outdoor workouts. I don't have a garage or anything, but I have a backyard. My question is, what equipment should I get? For context, I want to do more functional workouts. 
  5. In all your years of coaching, what are some things that allow people to get the best results?
  6. In a fat loss phase, are there any advantages to cheat meals or refeeds? If so, how frequently can you have them? 
  7. What are your thoughts on sports specialization? I have two kids in middle school sports, and there seems to be push for them to play one sport year around.
