Q&A (1:14:18):

  • Based on its mercury content, how much canned tuna can you eat on a weekly basis? (1:14:26).
  • Can I spread my training throughout the entire day instead of doing everything within a 60-90 minute “workout” period? (1:17:37).
  • Does hypothalamic amenorrhea impact hypertrophy? If eating at maintenance (or in a caloric surplus), does hypothalamic amenorrhea still have a negative impact on hypertrophy and athletic performance?" (1:20:47).
  • How should we approach kids/adolescents and resistance training? How young is too young? Are there additional safety concerns? (1:25:30).

Rapid fire Q&A for Eric (1:34:14):

  • Is it likely that habitual intake of nitrate-rich vegetables can induce the same ergogenic benefits that highly-concentrated supplements can?
  • L-citrulline dosing guidelines.
  • What is the optimal speed for consumption of a protein bolus?
  • Is there a link between high-protein diets and kidney stones?
  • L-theanine: purpose and dosing guidelines.

Rapid fire Q&A for Greg (1:45:53):

  • Lifting belts.
  • Does acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) blunt hypertrophy or strength gains?
  • Does being younger (16-19 years old) affect strength negatively?
  • Categorizing lifters as “beginner,” “intermediate,” and beyond.

To play us out: professional development questions (2:00:48).

  • I am a newly certified personal trainer, and I am planning to submit applications for personal trainer positions at commercial facilities in a couple weeks. How does a new trainer know when they are "ready" to take on clients?
  • I'm a first year psychology student. We recently had a class on how to read research articles, and many course materials laid out processes that would take about 5-6 hours for every single paper. What is your process for reading research? Does this change when you’re trying to get acquainted with a whole new body of literature versus evaluating a single paper on a familiar topic?
