In this episode, I answer questions from listeners. 

Questions on the show:

Q 1: My question is, how do you know when is a good time to implement a refeed day or a cheat meal? I've been very consistent with my diet for over a month. I'm addicted to food and am afraid I'll mess up my results if I do a cheat meal or refeed day. Any advice on how to go about this?

Q2: I have been a huge fan of the podcast for years and always love your Q and As. I know you have 3 children, so my question for you is, do you have any advice on training while pregnant/postpartum?

Q3: I know everyone hates Bulgarian Split Squats, but I just can't get myself to do them. What are some other good single-leg exercises I can try?

Q4: Are there any benefits to muscle scraping as a recovery method? 

Q5: Hey Kyle, I have my first powerlifting meet next weekend, and I am pretty nervous. Do you have any advice for me?

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?

Aug 15, 2022

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?

In this episode, I tell a bizarre story and answer five questions from listeners. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. 

Questions on the show:

1: Hi Kyle, I’m going on vacation in a few weeks, and during I’ll have access to a gym but, I probably won’t have access to my normal implements (swiss bar, trap bar, landmine, etc.). What is the best way to approach training in a situation like this?

2: Hey Kyle, I have a question for you. I love taking pre-workout supplements and energy drinks, but some people say they are bad for you. What do you think?

3: What do you think has made the biggest impact on improving your bench press? 

4: In a recent episode, you briefly mentioned that when training your biceps you try to have multiple elbow positions. Can you explain that more? 

5: Hey Kyle, I graduated college this past May, and I'm trying to figure out my next step. I love fitness and want to make a career of it. But, I don’t know if I want to go back to school for Physical Therapy, go the strength and conditioning route, or just continue personal training. Do you have any advice for me?

In this episode, I answer questions from the newsletter. 

 

Questions on the show:

Q1: How do you find the appropriate weekly volume for a muscle group? I know there is a certain usual range, somewhere between 10 and 20 sets per week, but how do you find this? Do you just start with 10 and work your way up until you see the most change? How many weeks should I try a certain volume to see if it works or not?

Q2: What is the best way to combine running with lifting weights? 

Q3: Why do calories and macros not always line up on labels and in food trackers?

Q4: Hey Kyle, what is your take on Boron supplementation for free testosterone increase and hypertrophy? I've been taking 12mg every night.

Q5: What are some signs of a bad training program?

In this episode, I answer questions from my newsletter. 

Questions on the show:

Q#1:  I have been lifting consistently for five years. I listen to your podcast and others for advice on nutrition and weight lifting. However, all the information is for the young lifter. I am 50 years old. I would like to hear advice on how to make progress as an older lifter. Older lifters have some limitations that younger lifters don’t. Thanks.

Q#2: Do you think diet culture history could have been different if we didn't use the word "fat" for both dietary and body fat?

Q#3: How should we approach vacations with our fitness goals? Should we continue to be aware of our macros/find ways to train? Or should we give ourselves a diet and training break on these occasions? 

Q#4: Have you ever considered starting your own supplement company?

Q#5: You have probably answered this in the past, but should you have lower calories on rest days? Could not doing this potentially stall progress?

In this episode, Derek and I answer questions from listeners. 

Questions on the show: 

  1. Hey Kyle, I love the podcasts with Derek. Can you ask him how he got started with bodybuilding and powerlifting?
  2. What are your thoughts on tempo training? Is it an effective way to train or a waste of time?
  3. When is the best time to do cardio? I know there is some debate on this topic, and I am curious what your opinion is?
  4. When you watch a lot of pro bodybuilders train, they often use partial ranges of motion. Why is that? 
  5. How do you handle excuses from clients as a coach? I'm a new personal trainer and trying to balance being tough but understanding.

1: I have always been told you should not eat at night, is there any truth to this?

4: I loved the recent episode on peri-workout nutrition. I may have missed it, but did you mention what percentage of calories should be allocated around workouts?

5: My wife and I just moved to a different state. I like my new gym, but I hate training by myself. How do I find new training partners?

The fitness industry is built from arguably, one of the most persuasive advertising tools in existence – the transformation picture. These “before and after’s” are used to sell everything from workout equipment, coaching, books, and supplements. But, at the personal level, these transformations sell hope.

Few things in fitness are as exciting as the prospect of losing body fat. In the beginning, simply the anticipation of seeing your abs for the first time is enough to get the wheels turning. The good news is, as long as you resistance train a few times per week, maintain a calorie deficit, and adhere to the plan, fat loss initially comes pretty easy. At this point, the process is enjoyable. However, the sunshine and rainbows won’t last forever.

The only way the body calls on stored body fat is to create an imbalance between energy intake and expenditure. The trouble is the body adapts to caloric restriction and weight loss with a range of metabolic, behavioral, and hormonal responses. As a result of these adaptations, progress slows down. On top of that, energy in the gym takes a hit, workouts get laborious, and the desire to eat goes up as hunger and cravings increase. Anyone who has dieted before knows what I am talking about. This is where most people give in. It starts with one bite and ends with you surrounded by empty pints of Ben and Jerry’s. I’m exaggerating, but you get the idea.

As we know, a caloric deficit is needed to lose fat – calories in vs. calories out. On the other hand, being in a negative calorie balance unleashes adaptations that make further fat loss more difficult. Caloric restriction is a necessary evil when it comes to fat loss. So, what do we do?

Fortunately for us, the story doesn’t have to end there. Instead, we can hack the system by implementing a strategy of occasional overfeeding. This strategy is called refeeding. It’s not magic, and I don’t want to oversell you like an unrealistic transformation picture, but refeeds have been used successfully in the bodybuilding world for years.

Two plates. It’s a milestone for every young lifter. We all remember that feeling of pushing up 225lbs for the first time. Some of us probably even remember the gym where it happened.

It’s safe to say a 225lbs bench press is a big deal. However, as we advance in our lifting career, the expectations rise. Eventually, it becomes unacceptable to just hit 225lbs for a rep or two. The next goal is to rep it with ease.

The NFL made the 225lb bench press test for max reps famous. Every year the NFL hosts a scouting combine in Indianapolis where college players go and participate in a wide range of physical events. The combine gives teams a chance to see the college prospects display their athletic abilities in a controlled environment. In addition to the bench press, the other events are the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump, and various shuttle runs.

But, what makes the 225lbs bench test unique, is it gives the average gym member the rare chance to compare themselves to the best athletes in the world. It allows us average folk to see how we stack up against the freaks we watch play on Sundays.

In fitness, time on task should be worth a lot. However, sometimes experienced people still struggle with their fitness goals.

Why is that?

We all follow basically the same pattern with any new skill we learn. We start off wanting to get better at something, gather information from a book, website, podcast, or coach, practice until we reach an acceptable level, and then let it become automatic. For much of what we do, this is perfectly acceptable. For example, once you become a competent driver, that is sufficient. You don’t need to be world-class to get from point A to point B without running into things.

The real question is, how do we go beyond an acceptable level of competence? Unfortunately, once you reach a satisfactory skill level at something, it becomes harder and harder to continue improving. Many people come to this realization with their training after a few years. The longer you lift weights, the more work you need to do to ultimately get fewer results. At this point, the margin for error is small to continue making gains. Simply spending more time is unlikely to get it done if mistakes are still being made.

To see progress in years five, ten, or fifteen, you need to dot your I’s and cross your T’s. Over the years, I have observed a few common mistakes advanced lifters make. If you have put in the time but are still frustrated with your results, fixing these errors is a great place to start.

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!
