Ep 175: How to Calculate Calories, Perfect Technique vs Progressive Overload, Relevance of Specialization Routines, and Does Cardio Kill Gains
Manage episode 220328042 series 1459650
In this episode, I answer questions from my Instagram @HuntFitness
Questions on the podcast:
1- How do you balance "perfect" technique with progressive overload?
2- I'm 43 years old and finding it hard to put pounds on my total. I'm pretty sure I need to up my volume and/or frequency but as soon as I do, I get overuse injuries. How do you make progress as an older lifter that needs more recovery?
3- How do you program accessory exercises differently in a strength block vs. a hypertrophy block?
4- Can you realistically improve all three lifts in a training cycle, or is it better to focus on 1 or 2?
5- Do you see a benefit or carry over from belt squats/pitshark to the back squat and deadlift?
6- Does cardio actually "kill" strength, and if so, at what point does cardio diminish strength?
7- Can you grow muscle in a caloric deficit?
8- How do you calculate how many calories you burn in a day?
9- Thoughts on excelling in your fitness journey with limited finances - as someone who can't afford basic supplements, enough food, and professional coaching services?
10- How has fitness changed your life?
