In this episode, Kyle and Derek answer questions from listeners. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! 

 

Questions on the show:

1: I'm a former powerlifter, but my main goal is hypertrophy/muscle building right now. My question is, I'm struggling with where to put deadlifts in my program or even if I need to do them. What are your guys' thoughts? For context, I pull sumo.

2: An older guy at the gym suggested I start doing isometrics at the sticking point to improve my squat and bench press. I don't see many people doing these, so I wonder if there is anything to it.

3: When using RPE/RIR, how accurate do you need to be? I like using it, but is it still effective if I suck at it lol?

4: Are there any trap exercises you like besides a dumbbell shrug? I never feel them in my traps.

5: I have a random question for you guys. Who are your favorite bodybuilders and powerlifters of all time? It can be current or past competitors.

In this episode, Kyle and Derek answer questions from listeners. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! 

 

Questions on the show:

  1. I have a question for you and Derek about personal training certifications. I am currently in a master's program for Exercise science and working in the field in a clinical setting, but I want to get a personal training certification so I could potentially do that as a side job as I notice that a lot of gyms/studios require it. However, there are so many out there and I'm unsure which one to invest money in. I am curious which ones you and Derek have and why you chose those certs. I really just do not want to waste money on the wrong one!
  2. What are your thoughts on activation exercises? Are they worth it or a waste of time?
  3. Hey Kyle, like yourself, I have been training for close to 20 years. I'm now in my mid 30s and wondering if I have built all of the muscle I will in my lifetime? I still love training so it's not like I am going to stop. But, I guess my question is, what can I do to continue making gains as an advanced lifter? Or, is it not possible? 
  4. I train early in the morning and typically train fasted. I enjoy training on an empty stomach but wonder if I should try to eat something before training? I have time so that is not a factor. 
  5. Hi guys, I am traveling for most of December and my training time will be very limited. I'm worried about losing muscle and strength. One, should I be concerned? Two, if I do lose muscle and strength, how long will it take for me to gain it back?
