    Questions on the show:
    My time for training is extremely limited. Can I build a decent physique on three or four workouts a week for 30 minutes? What exercises do you recommend, and how many sets of each?  What exercises do you recommend for rear delts? I don't actually feel most rear delt exercises in the rear delt. What are your thoughts on the pre-exhaust style of training? Is there any benefit to including it?  How can you tell if you are doing enough or too much volume?  With the goal of always beating the logbook, does it count if you just improve RPE? For example, if you do 3 x 10 at 10 rpe one week, and the next, do 3 x 10 at 8 rpe. Is that progress? What is your favorite form of cardio for fat loss?

    Volume vs. Intensity and Bro Splits vs. Push Pull Legs Q&A

    Volume vs. Intensity and Bro Splits vs. Push Pull Legs Q&A

    In this episode, I recap UFC 280 and answer questions submitted by listeners. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. 
     
    Questions on the show:
    Q1: How do you avoid comparing yourself to others on social media? I sometimes find myself seeing other people’s progress and getting discouraged. 
    Q2: What is more important for strength, intensity, or volume? I guess what I am asking is, what increases strength more, top sets or back-off volume work? 
    Q3: Hey Kyle, I have a teenage son who is getting into lifting. I think I know the answer, but does weightlifting reduce or stunt height and stop growth?
    Q4: What can you use other than the scale to track fat loss?
    Q5: Are there any benefits to naturally sweetened products? 
    Q6: Can you discuss the pros and cons of a bro split versus a push/pull/legs routine?

    When to Refeed and Is Muscle Scraping Good for Recovery?

    When to Refeed and Is Muscle Scraping Good for Recovery?

    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?

Stan McCullars ,

Great advice every show

Im 57 and recently got back to the gym after a twenty year hiatus. Kyle’s advice has given me a great jumpstart. I wish I knew this stuff years ago. I’ve designed a plan based on his advice and in two months I’ve made great progress. Many thanks to my podcast coach!!!

Best Fitness Podcast in Existence

Kyle is a breath of fresh air in the fitness podcast space. He can clearly explain the basic principles of strength and muscle gains, as well as nutrition. He presents himself as a normal person and does not promote extreme or odd protocols. Also, Kyle is entertaining. I usually find myself laughing at least once throughout the episode.

If U lift, then Listen to This Podcast

Mr. Hunt breaks down complicated concepts (such as flexible dieting) and makes them accessible to the average joe. I recently began listening because Kyle was featured on Mike Matthews' podcast Muscle For Life (another good one to sub to). I love Kyle's Q&A podcast and deep dives on varying topics. He is also reachable by email which is awesome! Although it's only been a short time of listening for me, I look forward to each episode being released! Plus IMO, this pod has the best intro music lol -- I feel like I'm about to go to the beach or listen to Red Hot Chili Peppers.
