In today’s episode, Greg and Eric discuss how to cut weight for powerlifting, dealing with exercises that cause pain, the acceptability of putting pineapple on pizza, and much more.
0:57 “Is there any carry over or need to develop strength in the 1-5 rep range in order for that strength to be carried over into the 8-12 rep range for hypertrophy promotion?”
Meta-analysis of high load vs. low-load training; similar hypertrophy in spite of different strength gains. Also worth noting that the theory behind reverse linear periodization (starting with low volume/high intensity and progressing to high volume/lower intensity) is that early strength gains will help lead to more hypertrophy, but that’s never panned out in the research (one example here).
14:33 “When in a caloric deficit, should you reduce training volume, or training intensity?”
27:11 “How should you train for explosive activities, such as parkour?”
37:30 “Does pineapple belong on pizza?”
41:32 “Which is best: chicken wing, chicken thigh, or chicken breast?”
47:51 “What’s the best way to cut weight for powerlifting, in terms of performance?
54:30 “When you have pain during a certain exercise, how do you decide whether it’s worth rehabbing that movement vs. picking a different exercise?”
58:29 “What things have contributed most to your success in powerlifting/bodybuilding?”
