In this episode, I go over how to calculate calories and macros for building muscle and losing fat. The “secret” to any diet in terms of body composition comes down to calories and macronutrients. Every diet is a macro diet, whether you track them or not. In my opinion, regardless of what diet you choose to hitch your wagon to, it makes sense to learn how to calculate calorie and macronutrient targets. Understanding the basics of energy balance, portion sizes, and food tracking is the best practical nutrition education you can get. This knowledge is the key to demystifying nutrition and setting you up for long-term success.

In this episode, I talk about how to use percentages, RPE, and RIR in your training. Both percentage-based training and an autoregulated approach using the RPE scale and RIR have their place. The key is understanding how they fit together to help you get the most out of your training. Knowing which string to pull at the right time is one of the primary aspects of programming. Either way, both methods provide an effective system to determine the correct load to put on the bar. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

In this episode, Derek and I talk about a bunch of random things and answer questions from listeners at the end. 

Questions on the show:

1. I have heard when you are cutting, it's a bad idea to have carbs and fats in the same meal. Is there any truth to this? [should the post-workout meal be low fat?] 

2. When you get closer to your genetic potential is there anything you have to change or do differently to continue seeing progress?

3. I know you say not to worry about day-to-day weight fluctuations, but how do you mentally handle seeing the scale go up throughout the week when you know you are in a deficit?

4. Are there any old-school bodybuilding techniques you think people forgot about that are effective?

5. How often should you change the exercises in your program, and can you give me some triceps exercise examples, all I do is triceps pressdowns?
