In this episode, I answer questions from listeners.
1: Forrest – So I have two questions: how can I use DUP in my programs so that I don't plateau, and how much cardio should be implemented in a powerlifting program?

2: Nick – 1. Is it good to keep the same lifts every week when building muscle, powerlifting or cutting? Or can you mix it up your program week to week of different lifts or isolation movements? 2. Who was your favorite guest so far on the podcast and why? 3. I see that everyone in the fitness industry has to have a brand these days and why is that? Do you see yourself ever having a brand or doing your own supplement line? And would you ever grow your company into something bigger? Hunt Fitness is kind of catchy! 4. How do you keep your confidence up when you are lifting so heavy and when get nervous with all that weight on your back when squatting or even benching? 5. Deadlifting with chronic lower back pain, is it a good idea? Mine never hurts when I’m deadlifting but have pulled muscles before with bad form.
3: James - Hey Kyle my question revolves around injuries in powerlifting. How to prep to compete while recovering from an injury? Any specific ways or techniques you use to stay injury free? And any guidelines you have that aids in a faster recovery from minor injuries?
4: Tony - I know you listen to the JRE, can you comment on Pavels recommendation for low reps and keeping a lot of reps in the tank that Joe always talks about?
5: Marco – I have three questions. One, what are your favorite movies of all time? Two, who is your favorite athlete of all time? Three, what music do you listen to while training?
6: Tim - If you could only do 1 assistance move for each of the powerlifts, what would they be?
7: Charlie - My son is 11 years old and wants to start training. One, is it safe? Two, if it is what should I have him do?
8: Steven – Can you give me some advice on losing body fat while maintaining/gaining strength? Also, can you talk about the new leverages when you lean out?
9: Dillon – Hey Kyle, what are your tips on building muscle mass/strength while minimizing fat gain?
10: Jason - What does your warm-up look like?
11: Kevin - How long should you workout? I have read before that working out for too long can become counterproductive?
12: Chase - What is your take on artificial sweeteners?
14: Matt - Can You share what programming you follow?
15: Dillon- What are your goals or predictions for your powerlifting meet on squat, bench, deadlift? Also, what is your all-time goals you would like to hit in the gym or in a meet?
