Let's get into the episode:
01:13 - From Tom McDonald - Do fifty year olds need to change their type of workouts, do too many even bother even when their joints are screaming?
09:06 - From Andrew Doueihi - What are you opinions on the concept of myofascial release?
17:35 - From Amber Joy - What are some good rules of thumb, starting points or sources of information for a general population person who wants to learn about counting macros for fat loss?
20:50 - From Sylvia Hua (sorry if we spelt it wrong!) - I read that taking creatine can cause weight gain due to water retention. For me I see a direct cause and effect of taking creatine of monohydrate and weight loss and increased visability of ab lines.
25:50 - From Stephen Dallas - When performing a powerlifting arch for bench press what is the difference in pec activation compared to a somewhat natural arch?
32:44 - From Tim Garret - For a lifter that is a long way out from a competition how far away would you move from the competition lifts?
48:23 - From Mitch Ables - How long should you spend on a program before altering exercises or intensity/volume?
