The BIG Q&A Show

So needless to say, I’m trying something VERY new this week!

I had a scheduling issue with my interviewee, and I definitely didn’t want to miss a week, so this show is all about YOU.

If you get my newsletter, I reached out to ask for questions for this week – and the response was amazing!

In fact, I got so many questions I literally couldn’t answer them all. My goal, however, is to keep this rolling and answer one question per show going forward, however.

But enough about me – let’s talk about this week’s show!

Show Outline

Here’s a brief overview of what I covered this week:

  • 00:30 – Intro, weekend recap, and random thoughts on the podcast as it stands now
  • 8:10 – Why are you so focused on abs and hamstrings versus glutes? And what are best practices for making this happen? (Alex Jardine)
  • 14:00 – Why have you switched from “standard” core training to anti-movement core training? (James)
  • 18:20 – How would you go about improving max push-ups or pull-ups for people preparing for a fitness test? (Dru)
  • 24:00 – How do you incorporate breathing exercises and resets into your programming? And where do you place them? (Nick Outlaw)
  • 29:30 – How do you deal with clients who don’t buy into your training? (Matt Hamilton)
  • 34:10 – How would you build a developmental program for young athletes? (Lori Panu)
  • 41:30 – What training adaptations are you looking for with back-off sets? At what training age would you employ them? And where would they fit into a program? (Mario Saldivar)
  • 46:10 – How do you balance work, travel, family and everything else? Do you ever feel guilty about leaving or travel? (Gary Mahabir)

  1. Hi Mike,
    After being bummed that the guest was replaced by Q&A, thinking it would be alot of newbie questions (let that ego go!), I actually loved it. Great that you will be mixing these in with the usual awesone content. I always learn something! Keep on doing what you do!!

    • Thanks so much Joanne! I’ve gotten really great feedback so far, and I think this will be a really fun feature going forward.

      Thanks for listening and have a great weekend!
