In this episode, I talk about the books I read in June, give a detailed look at Chris Bumstead's training and diet, and answer questions from listeners. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! 

Books I read in June:

  1. Ultimate Conditioning for Martial Arts – Loren Landow 
  2. Sparring Partners – John Grisham 
  3. How to Become a Straight-A Student – Cal Newport 
  4. Getting Things Done – David Allen

 

Questions on the show:

  1. I am currently in a fat loss phase and trying to balance being patient while making good progress. Do you have a general rule for determining the appropriate rate of weight loss? 
  2. I know you are a big UFC fan. Who are your top 3 MMA fighters of all time?
  3. Is it possible to get as strong as possible training by yourself? The reason I ask is, that I workout in my basement and don’t have anyone to spot me. 
  4. How do I convince my girlfriend to stop doing so much cardio and start lifting weights?
  5. Hey Kyle, I am curious about the difference between active rest and deload weeks? For someone trying to gain muscle how would you manipulate macros during this time?

In this episode, I talk about fitness being more than what we do in the gym and answer listener questions. 

Questions on the show:

  1. I have heard you talk about double progression in the past. Can you explain how it works again?
  2. Hey Kyle, I have a question for you. Is it better to take a multivitamin or just take individual vitamins/minerals you might be low in? 
  3. I know regular stretching has fallen out of favor in recent years, but should we be stretching? 
  4. This is a two-part question. One, is it normal during a fat loss phase to lose strength with certain muscle groups but gain strength in other muscle groups/areas? Two, how do you deal with a client that wants to lose weight but is brainwashed to think they need to eat a 1200-calorie diet or less to lose weight and don’t believe you when you say you need to eat more?
  5. If you had to start over from scratch, and start Hunt Fitness today, how would you do it?

In this episode, Derek and I answer questions submitted by listeners of the show. 

Q#1: Hey Kyle, I heard that creatine causes hair loss and baldness, is there any truth to this?

Q#2: I travel a ton for work and it makes it hard to follow any type of diet. Do you have any advice for things I can eat on the go, or what to order when frequently eating at restaurants?

Q3: I have a strange question. I think I have a strength imbalance between my right and left leg. Would there be any downside to doing only unilateral movements for the lower body? I am thinking about doing a program with only lunges, step-ups, split squats, etc. What are your thoughts?

Q4: To make a long story short, I was off and on dieting for the past year. After losing about ten pounds initially, my weight hit a plateau and no matter what I did, it wouldn’t budge. Eventually, I got tired of dieting and increased my calories by 300. I expected my weight to shoot up, but it barely moved. I guess my question is, why haven’t I gained weight?

Q5: If you could go back in time and give your younger self one piece of training advice what would it be?
