Andrea, Brian, and Alberto host an audience-supplied Q and A session. Topics discussed include training, soreness, hypertrophy, cutting, bulking, programming, and more.
What are signs that your training sessions might be too long? If you’re feeling sore, is it better to push yourself to train or wait until you’re less sore? What should you do with your calorie intake during a deload? How long can you build muscle on maintenance calories? When the goal is hypertrophy, should you increase load by the smallest or largest amount that you can? How can you increase your grip strength for deadlifts?
