In this episode, I answer questions submitted from my newsletter.

Sign up for my newsletter here: www.KyleHuntFitness.com 

 

Podcast Questions:

*Question 1.) 2017 Raw Nationals Review + My thoughts on DLB competing in the USAPL. 

*Question 2.) A- With more recent studies coming out each day about how bad sugar is for you and how backward our guidelines for nutrition are, do you think we should follow more of a higher fat and lower carb diet rather than this low-fat medium carb medium protein diet the doctors have been feeding us since the 50s? I hear a lot of talks that higher fat diets are more beneficial for a healthier lifestyle (I’m not talking about keto). B- Are whey protein shakes used to help meet protein goals, cost effective? Or is it cheaper to get your protein from only food base sources.

*Question 3.) I know you are an evidence-based coach but are there any aspects of “bro science” that you use for yourself or clients? Why or why not?

*Question 4.) A- In your opinion does the squat help or aid in the deadlift? Do you think for example if you only did deadlifts in your program without squats and then added squatting to the program you would see an improvement in your deadlift? B- Have you ever watched Steve Austin’s broken skull ranch? If so have you ever thought of doing it and how do you think you would fair?

*Question 5.) How long should you rest between sets when the goal is strength?

*Question 6.) What are your favorite movies to watch for motivation?

*Question 7.) How do you compensate carbs for fats or vice versa what is the exact equation? For example when you go over and trying to even it out through the following days, or planning on eating a bit more for a specific occasion? 

*Question 8.) Who are your favorite YouTubers? Furthermore, which do you think provide the most to their viewers?

Sep 29, 2017

In this episode, I go over how to create a strength training program from start to finish. Creating a program starts with asking the right questions. What is your goal? What has worked in the past? How much time can you dedicate to training? Once you have a good understanding of the details, you can dig into the training variables - intensity, volume, etc. 

This could be an entire year of podcasts, but hopefully, after listening to this episode you will be better capable of designing quality programs.

In this episode, I answer questions from my newsletter subscribers.

Questions on the show:

Q 1: A few people wanted to get my take on the McGregor vs Mayweather fight

Q 2: Kurt- I had a car accident and now, after 4 weeks, I am cleared to go to the gym again. How should I organize my training and nutrition? Before the accident, I was in the middle of a cutting phase, and in those weeks of inactivity, I have put on 5-7 lbs. Should I go straight into a cut or is that too much of losing muscle after not training for 4 weeks? 

Q3: Isaac - Hey Kyle, how do you see your career panning out for the rest of your life? Do you still see yourself primarily as a coach for the next 30 years to come? 

Q4: Jimmy - Hey Kyle, my question for the podcast would be about business and what are things you wish you would have been told about starting your own business. What are the biggest challenges in the first months of starting a business?

Q5: James @james_vetor - Hey Kyle my question is how to identify if a potential sponsor is a scam or legit? 

Q6: Chris - 100 day Cut, lost 20 pounds. What recommendations do you have for when someone finishes a program? Would it be to hop right back into another one? Or maybe freestyle it in the gym for a while and just have fun?

Q7: John - if there is a day when you know you will over-eat (let's say, thanksgiving for example), is it better to lift and convert those extra calories into muscle instead of fat or do extra cardio to prevent the accumulation of fat? When would the ideal timing of either be (before a meal, next morning, etc.)?

Q8: Dillon – Hey Kyle, my question is when is the best time to use a slingshot in bench training?

Q9: Ryan – Hey Kyle, with the rise in the powerlifting standards in recent years, what type of commitment does it take to be competitive?

In this episode, I talk with cinematographer Zack Kravits. Zack and I met last month in Austin Texas. After digging into some of his work, I was blown away by his video quality. Zack is creating some of the best videos in the YouTube fitness space right now. In the social media era we live in, learning how to create better content is huge and it's just going to get more important! The future "resumé" is going to be directly tied to your social footprint. We talked a lot about how you can make higher quality videos without investing a ton of money into fancy equipment. Everyone starts somewhere. Don't expect the first time you try something to be great at it. At the heart of this episode, we dig into how being honest with yourself combined with following your true passion can lead to something great.

In this episode, I sit down with the founder and CEO of Elitefts.com, Dave Tate. We started off the conversation talking about social media marketing. Then we dug into the process of starting Elitefts, Dave detailed some of the struggles of building a brand from the ground up. The truth is, most people make entrepreneurship sound too easy. After that, we went over the process of outfitting a gym. How do you select the right equipment to make sure a gym is set up for success? We finished up talking about the growth of powerlifting. Is powerlifting really growing as fast as we think it is?
