    312: How to Choose a Weight Class in Powerlifting [Q&A]

    312: How to Choose a Weight Class in Powerlifting [Q&A]

    In this episode, I answer six questions sent in by listeners of the show. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
    Questions on the show:
    1: Hey Kyle, I have been lifting weights pretty seriously for five years, and for the first time since I started, I feel burnt out. I think I might just be bored with lifting? Do you have any advice for me?
    2: Hey man, I just got back into powerlifting after a long break from high school. I found your pod a while back and really enjoy it. I had two questions that might be interesting topics to cover. How often do you max yourself or your clients and how often do you think someone should test their 1RM? Do you ever try to strategically fit in a PL weight class or do you just maintain a weight that feels right for you?
    3: Hey Kyle, I have a question for the podcast, how often should you change the exercises in your program if building muscle is the primary goal?
    4: Hi Kyle, I have a question for you. I have heard you talk about on the podcast how cheat meals are not a good idea during a fat loss diet, however, in the past I have had pretty good success with them. Is it an individual thing, or could I have achieved better results by not having cheat meals?
    5: Why does it seem like Actors can make huge transformations seemingly overnight while it takes the rest of us years to see any meaningful progress? Is it all steroids or something else?
    6: What is one piece of advice you would give a recent college grad looking to get into the fitness industry?

    310: How to Bench Press More Weight | The Misconception of Leg Drive and Scapular Retraction

    310: How to Bench Press More Weight | The Misconception of Leg Drive and Scapular Retraction

    In this episode, I go over how to bench press more weight. As many of you probably know, I love the bench press. It's my favorite lift, and the one I spend the most time thinking about. Although it seems like such a simple movement, high-level benching actually involves many intricate details.

    I’m sure some of these tips you have heard before, but hopefully, I can present them in a way that resonates with you and is something you can put to use in the gym.

    Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

    308: How to Manage Fatigue and Optimize Recovery Feat. Derek Charlebois

    308: How to Manage Fatigue and Optimize Recovery Feat. Derek Charlebois

    In this episode, Derek and I talk about ways to manage fatigue and optimize recovery from training. Many of these tips just involve well-structured training. Things like avoiding excessive volume, intensity, and frequency, using good form, and incorporating rest days can go a long way. Beyond that, sleep and nutrition also play a big role. Lastly, things you would typically associate with "recovery modalities" – massage, cryotherapy, cold/contrast therapy, static/dynamic compression, etc. can be incorporated as well.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

The best strength training and fitness podcast!!

I recently started getting into powerlifting and wanted to dive into all things powerlifting. In that effort I found this podcast and can’t get enough of it. Kyle Hunt is a well informed and knowledgeable strength and fitness coach that gives some awesome ideas on how to program, diet, and data collection. I’ve even changed some of my training because of what he has said. Can’t wait to hear the next podcast.
