Questions from the show:
1 Alain: What are your thoughts on the highly popularized YouTube strength standards (bench 225, squat 315, and deadlift 405 -all for reps)? Realistic?
2 Nick: (1) You're thoughts on expos like the Arnold? And would you ever have a booth or complete there? (2) Dumbbells vs barbells, should you do both? (3) How important is stretching and warming up? Specially to prevent injury or to improve your lifts? (4) What is the top necessary equipment you need to bring to the gym?
3 Mike: How important is sleep for training?
4 Ian and Don: Would love some advice/guidance on nutrition and eating on a day of a powerlifting meet. (24 hour vs 2 hour)
5 A Few People: How to decide what weight class to compete in?
6 John: Hey Kyle my question is about social media. I am designing a trading card game similar to yugioh or Pokémon if you have ever played those and I'm trying to get a bigger following what is the best way to do that? Second question is that I'm designing a bodybuilding card game where you collect meals sleep and workouts to get your "gainz" lol do you ever play board games and would you play one about bodybuilding?
7 Kurt: How often do you feel DOMS after your workouts?
8 Victor: What is your take on Christian McCafferys 10 reps on the bench press portion of the NFL combine? Does it accurately depict his future at the running back position?
9 Mitch: I had the question about why powerlifters, bodybuilders, etc. don't incorporate wild game into their diet? Lower fat content and organic.
10 A few people asked: I do powerlifting programs but I wanna grow my arms. How would you go about combining the two?
11 Issac: Thanks for answering my previous question! I would like to ask what to do when I get buried by linear progression, should I move on to periodization? For a little bit of context my lifts are definitely what most people would call novice, but I am a small guy (48kg).
12 Ethan: What was your motivation when you started cross fit and would you ever consider going back to it?
