Episode 54: Fake Weights, Intuitive Eating, Refeeds and Powerlifting Accessory Movements
2 days ago
In this episode, I answer questions I received from my newsletter subscribers. Sign up for my newsletter here: kylehuntfitness.com/flexibledietingmanual Q 1 – Fake Weights Q 2- Isaac: Hey Kyle, during deadlifts I find that my form is inconsistent. A lot of the time the 1st rep always looks better than subsequent reps. What would you recommend? Resetting after each rep? Thanks man. Thoroughly enjoy your content! Q 3- Nick: Kyle, What courses did you have to take in college for your degree and which one(s) do you think have translated most to your actual career? Q 4 – A few people….Best accessory work to improve your squat, bench and deadlift. **Read Article: http://www.kylehuntfitness.com/the-9-best-assistance-exercises-for-raw-powerlifting/ Q 5 – Conner: Where do you think Youtube Fitness and Fitness social media will be in 5, 10, 15 years? Do you see it fading away or remaining a staple in the industry? Such an interesting space in social media, very saturated. Q 6 – Katie: My question is, do you think everyone should eventually transition to intuitive eating? Or can macro tracking be something that is "okay" to practice forever? Q 7 – Kevin: In regards to programming, how often, if ever, do you build full Training blocks with main movement variations acting as the main movement and take it through the full range of hypertrophy, strength and peaking? For example just for fun right now I'm using front squat, wide grip bench and block pulls as my main movements and plan on doing a 12 week program ending in a peak where I can test my maxes on these variations. Then I will go back to another 12 weeks and plug in my main movements and start back at hypertrophy for those. Hope this makes sense. Have a good week and can't wait for the podcast! Kevin Q 8 – Guy: I understand the concept of refeed, and why we need to program that after a while. But how can someone judge by how much his metabolism adapted to a specific diet/training? The formula you use for BMR and flexible dieting doesn't take that into account does it? Wouldn't that make the transition from cutting to bulking a bit tricky? Connect with Kyle: Instagram:
