Ep. 12 – Q&A: Your First Diet Break, Bilateral Vs. Unilateral Training, Trying to Bulk, How My Kids Eat
This is a landmark episode, as it’s the “Dirty Dozen” episode, and it’s the first podcast recorded in the studio!
My apologies for the sound quality, but it’s a beautiful thing.
Here are today’s topics:
How to go about your first diet break – what is it, how to plan for it, and what you should be monitoring.
Unilateral vs. bilateral training – should we do both, why do I have such a strong argument for unilateral training, what its’ benefits are, and how to implement both on a session to session basis.
If you’ve been mildly trying to bulk, with no success – what’re the mechanisms at play preventing your gains, what to do for a simple bulk, without eating twice as much food, and compromising food quality, and making sure you’re training is conducive to the bulk!
How I cook for my kids, and how they eat – I get asked about this quite a bit, and it might not be what you expected! I even go into my philosophy on parenting a bit, and how it’s molded my coaching.
