My Next Powerlifting Meet and Why You Are Not Losing Weight

In this episode, Derek and I answer questions about learning, our next powerlifting meet, selecting the right barbell for your home gym, why you are not losing weight, and more. 


Sit back, relax, and enjoy!


Questions on the show:

Q1: Where do you, personally, go to keep up with studies regarding strength and nutrition? I.e., do you subscribe to MASS, view PubMed periodically, or just have a library of info in your brain? Also, when are YOU competing in PL again? 

Q2: Hey Kyle, I want a nice barbell for my home gym. What are some things to look for when picking out the right one? 

Q3: If you are cutting and feel exhausted, is it okay to let yourself rest one day a week without any physical activities, including even a long walk? If I am lazy all day, will it affect the process of my cut? 

Q4: Why am I losing weight so slowly? I am three weeks into my cut and hitting 10,000 or more steps daily. I am doing 60mins of heavy weight training with 30 to 40 mins of cardio five days a week. I’m eating around 2000 calories. 

Q5: You've coached a lot of clients over the years. What is the most valuable lesson you have learned from a client?
