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?
