    773 - Is Dairy Inflammatory, My Calories During My Cut, Reverse Dieting Fast vs. Slow, and More...

    In this Q&A we start by CRUSHING a myth around dairy being inflammatory and even break down some new evidence suggesting WHY people might be causing their own lactose intolerance, then we dive into my personal fat loss phase (for the photoshoot) and how many calories I consumed from start to finish, whether or not you should reverse diet fast or slow (and how to know), barefoot training, fighting diet fatigue, and more...

    (3:30) - I’m a FIFO worker on a week on week off roster! I’m a powerlifting competitor and I remain pretty lean all year round! When I’m at work I have a very strict diet and have no problem with staying on track, however when I’m home I tend to indulge a little with a few drinks and date night! My weight tends to go up a few kg’s when I’m home and then it comes off whilst at work. Can you see any problem with this long term?? Also can you tell me the reason my sleep goes to shit when I’m in a deficit?

    (14:20) - Thoughts on diary and lactose being inflammatory?

    (22:30) - How low did your calories start and end with in your cut?

    (28:10) - Do you wear barefoot shoes to train? If so, what is your favorite brand / style?

    (31:15) - When you reverse diet, is it better to go slow or go to maintenance?

    (41:50) - How do you fight fatigue when deep into a deficit?

    (2:30) - How and when should you train until failure without putting excess stress on your body? In other words, how do you know when you should “leave some reps in the tank” or until failure without causing injury or fatigue?

    (13:24) - Would you recommend a Tonal for someone who wants a cable machine at home but has limited space?

    (20:20) - What is your favorite strength training split & number of days /week for someone training for a marathon. Content: someone who has been strength training & running for 10+ years. But for this season, marathon training is the focus. Running 4x / week: 2 shorter, one track and 1 long run.

    (25:10) - Life is expensive and trying to find a way to work a coach into my budget. How many months would you say I need to devote to working with y’all? Needing to lose 70lb

    (30:40) - What are some strategies if you want to increase muscle? I’m a 41 year old woman who is skinny fat and trying to increase my muscle. Besides strength training what else do you recommend? Especially nutrition wise

    (37:45) - Have to take a week off from the gym for intense oral gum surgery. Just reversed up to 2300 cal- I’m a 42 yo female. Should I keep cal so high with a week off or come down a little? Usually do 3.5 hours of heavy lifting a week and 40 mins hiit

    (41:30) - Having a hard time deciding on a goal because I like a little bit of everything. I am currently doing a cut and want to shed fat to look fit and athletic. But I also want to progress with strength specifically in squats and pull-ups. And I also want to be able to jump into a hiit workout with friends whenever the occasion presents itself. My question is if my main goal is aesthetics but I want to keep working on strength and still have a good aerobic system, what do I do for training? Does it really come down to cycling goals throughout the year?

    (5:30) - How long does it take for your metabolism to “recover” following a 3 month endurance training block? About to come out of half marathon training and will begin focusing on strength training. I’ve been maintaining weight at about 17-1800 calories (probably 70-80%consistency with this)…but 1700 was my prior calorie intake for my previous fat loss phase last year. I’m looking to focus on strength and weight maintenance for awhile but would like my maintenance calories to be higher so when I’m ready to cut its at a more doable Calorie intake

    (17:35) - What did you learn from this cut? Has your approach changed going forward?

    (29:25) - It’s not that my partner isn’t ‘supportive’ per say but he doesn't understand why I track macros/eat certain foods. He always says that I ‘look fine’ and don’t need to do this stuff. Anyways, how do you deal with lack of understanding from family/friends? And not feeling ‘insecure’ or ‘embarrassed’ to be doing what I actually want to do?

    (37:30) - Does body recomp only happen at maintenance? I’m going through a reverse and was wondering when it’ll actually be noticeable.

    (40:55) - If I hate doing a certain compound exercise (back squats) is it better to suck it up and do it anyway, go a bit lighter (I’m not confident in the movement in the first place), or find a comparable exercise? Can you give some examples of comparable exercises for compound movements?

    769 - Experience vs. Science w/ Chris Barakat

    769 - Experience vs. Science w/ Chris Barakat

    This episode's guest is a returning guest and the absolute best person to talk about a topic we're very passionate about... Science vs. Experience! The truth is, being "Evidence Based" is the combination of these two things. Yet many people online nowadays do not practice in the trenches nearly enough to have the experience required to make truly educated decisions, especially when the coaching decisions needing to be made are in opposition of what the scientific literature might say.

    So today, Chris Barakat runs through some touchy-topics with us and challenges the scientific literature... we discuss fasted cardio, reverse dieting, high carb vs. low carb diets, training intensity, and more…

    (3:00) - I’m a 41 y/o female, 5’3” 112-115 pounds, and have been lifting heavy for many years. Currently doing 3 full body workouts/week, 12k steps per day. Getting married next June and I want to grow my back and shoulders so I look great in my dress. How should I change my programming to make noticeable gains in my shoulders/back but still maintain the other areas of my body, especially the glutes? I plan on going into a slight surplus over the Fall/Winter, then cutting prior to the wedding.

    (14:25) -  I do squats and deadlifts as part of my programming, but as soon as I get close to failure or go for a PR (165 for squats, 195 for DL) I end up hurting my back. I’ve seen chiropractors, PT, coaches, and nothing seems to help. I know progressive overload is important for muscle growth but I can’t seem to make meaningful progress on these lifts. Should I just keep these lifts in, but at lesser loads, because they’re good for the body, and just try to overload on my other lifts? Or is there a different solution?

    (26:00) - I have close to 60lb to lose after losing almost 100 and gaining back 30 . I have struggled for a long time and feel like I desperately need to work with you. Unfortunately money is tight and I can’t seem to make it happen. If I were to save up, how long would you say I needed to work with you in order to get on the right track to lose the weight? Would 3 months be worth it or would it need to be longer? The weight gain and struggle is beginning to affect every aspect of my life and I need help!

    (33:00) - In regards to late night hunger, You mentioned freezing casein protein as a night snack (ep 214). In my current meal plan, I have yogurt, and 15g peanut butter. I’ve started saving 1 of my protein scoops, mixing it with the yogurt and peanut butter and making popsicles with it as my late night snack. I also started saving my veggies till the end of the night and snacking on them. Is there any harm in doing it this way?

    (41:25) - Best Training Split for a female bikini athlete who wants to train 6 days a week (I still consider myself a newbie)

THE MORE YOU KNOW

I’ve been following and listening to Cody since he started. His content never disappoints! As someone who is a life long learner and a believer in “cracking a book” when I don’t know the answer, I find Cody’s content the most current and digestible when it comes to fitness and nutrition! He is always willing to answer questions! He is an invaluable resource! Sending much love and support always!

Arlie K ,
