Questions on the show:

Q1- Hi Kyle, I started lifting weights a couple years ago but honestly I just started making progress about 6 months ago when I bought your Absolute Strength Program. My question is, if I am following your Absolute Strength Program, what is the best way to go about my nutrition to make sure I continue gaining muscle and strength? For context, I am 6ft tall and weight 165lbs.

Q2 - I seem to get mixed opinions on this depending on who I ask, and imagine some other lifters might too: The idea of direct ab work.

So, ab work in general (probably especially the types where you're not purposely causing too much lumbar flexion, extension, and torsion) like planks, ab-wheel rollouts, roman chair leg lifts and such - are they really beneficial to a lifter from the perspective of helping you become a better lifter?  I mean, I get the structural benefits of having strong abs to support your lower back but can ab work actually help put lbs onto your total? 

Q3 – I understand hypertrophy is very important to getting stronger. Are there any benefits to spending a large portion of time in a powerlifting offseason focusing almost entirely on hypertrophy/bodybuilding training with maybe only one top set per week between 1-5 reps for Squat, Bench, and Deadlift?

Q4: What are the best foods to eat if you struggle to take in enough calories during a weight gaining cycle? Keep in mind, I’m a college kid with limited funds.

Q5: What are your favorite exercises for each muscle group with the purpose of building muscle?

Q6: What is the purpose behind all your #consistency posts on Instagram?
