Q&A: Lying vs. Seated Ham Curl, Weight Loss Medications, and Isometric Training Muscle for Life with Mike Matthews

    • Fitness

I’ve churned through over 150,000 emails, social media comments and messages, and blog comments in the last 6 years.

And that means I’ve fielded a ton of questions.

As you can imagine, some questions pop up more often than others, and I thought it might be helpful to take a little time every month to choose a few and record and share my answers.



So, in this round, I answer the following three questions:


Lying or seated ham curls?

Thoughts on weight loss medications?

How useful are isometric exercises?


If you have a question you’d like me to answer, leave a comment below or if you want a faster response, send an email to mike@muscleforlife.com.
