In this episode, I answer six questions sent in by listeners of the show. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Questions on the show:

1: Hey Kyle, I have been lifting weights pretty seriously for five years, and for the first time since I started, I feel burnt out. I think I might just be bored with lifting? Do you have any advice for me?

2: Hey man, I just got back into powerlifting after a long break from high school. I found your pod a while back and really enjoy it. I had two questions that might be interesting topics to cover. How often do you max yourself or your clients and how often do you think someone should test their 1RM? Do you ever try to strategically fit in a PL weight class or do you just maintain a weight that feels right for you?

3: Hey Kyle, I have a question for the podcast, how often should you change the exercises in your program if building muscle is the primary goal?

4: Hi Kyle, I have a question for you. I have heard you talk about on the podcast how cheat meals are not a good idea during a fat loss diet, however, in the past I have had pretty good success with them. Is it an individual thing, or could I have achieved better results by not having cheat meals?

5: Why does it seem like Actors can make huge transformations seemingly overnight while it takes the rest of us years to see any meaningful progress? Is it all steroids or something else?

6: What is one piece of advice you would give a recent college grad looking to get into the fitness industry?
