In this episode, I talk about if you can be too obsessed with fitness and answer questions submitted by listeners. 

 

Questions:

Q 1: When trying to build muscle, how often should you change workout programs, exercises, etc.? 

Q2: Is there any application for using BFR training for powerlifting accessories? 

Q3: Hey Kyle, I want to get an exercise bike for my house. Do you have any recommendations? 

Q4: Is it more important to do the programmed number of reps during a set or end at the right RPE/RIR? For example, if the weight is too light, should you stop at six or do 9 or 10 if you can at the prescribed RPE? 

Q5: When is the best time to do mobility work? Is it before or after the workout? I have heard both recommended. 

Q6: Are there any benefits to wearing a mouth guard when lifting?

In this episode, I answer questions from listeners. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. 

Questions:

 Q1: In the last podcast, you talked about the best barbell to buy. However, do you have a recommendation for a women’s barbell? 

Q2: Hey Kyle, I know spot reduction is not really possible, but do you have any suggestions on how to get rid of my love handles? 

Q3: What is the best bare minimum warm-up that takes the least amount of time? I only have 30-40 minutes to work out, so I don’t want to waste a lot of time warming up. For context, I am a powerlifter. 

Q4: Hi Kyle, I have a wedding in two months, and I want to lose weight as fast as I can. Is there any special protocol for fast weight loss? 

Q5: What are the most common form issues on the big three, and how do you correct them?

In this episode, Derek and I answer questions about learning, our next powerlifting meet, selecting the right barbell for your home gym, why you are not losing weight, and more. 

 

Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

 

Questions on the show:

Q1: Where do you, personally, go to keep up with studies regarding strength and nutrition? I.e., do you subscribe to MASS, view PubMed periodically, or just have a library of info in your brain? Also, when are YOU competing in PL again? 

Q2: Hey Kyle, I want a nice barbell for my home gym. What are some things to look for when picking out the right one? 

Q3: If you are cutting and feel exhausted, is it okay to let yourself rest one day a week without any physical activities, including even a long walk? If I am lazy all day, will it affect the process of my cut? 

Q4: Why am I losing weight so slowly? I am three weeks into my cut and hitting 10,000 or more steps daily. I am doing 60mins of heavy weight training with 30 to 40 mins of cardio five days a week. I’m eating around 2000 calories. 

Q5: You've coached a lot of clients over the years. What is the most valuable lesson you have learned from a client?

In this episode, I answer questions about leg drive in the bench press, non-complete protein sources, popular fad diets, and more. 

Questions on the show:

1: Hello, sir! My question to you for the podcast is, how do I know I am getting enough leg drive to support either a flat bench or an incline bench press with a barbell?

2: I had a question about something that came up on your podcast. You were talking about all the ways to hit your daily protein intake, but my question is, should most of your protein sources come from a complete protein? Is that ok if you got 85% from complete proteins and 15 from other sources like nuts, beans, or whatnot?

3: Hey Kyle, I am 36 years old and a recreational powerlifter. My question is, do you like it is too old for me to start competing if I want to be competitive? 

4: Is there ever a time to train hard just to push yourself mentally? 

5: Can you talk about the pros and cons of some of the popular fad diets?
