I’ve churned through over 150,000 emails, social media comments and messages, and blog comments in the last 6 years.

And that means I’ve fielded a ton of questions.

As you can imagine, some questions pop up more often than others, and I thought it might be helpful to take a little time every month to choose a few and record and share my answers.

So, in this round, I answer the following three questions:

  1. “Why should we not reduce the amount of weightlifting volume that we’re doing when we cut because you don’t need as much volume to maintain muscle as you do to gain muscle, and when you’re at deficit, you’re not going to gain muscle.”
  2. “Are there different ways to train different types of muscle fibers to gain muscle and strength faster?”
  3.  “What one piece of advice would you give for continuing exercise through your 40s and older?”

If you have a question you’d like me to answer, leave a comment below or if you want a faster response, send an email to [email protected]
