  • Hi guys,
    I am a 37 year old man that is about to get back into fitness. The only thing is that 198cm, 140kg and currently 37% body fat. Just wondering what in you opnion I should start with.

    I have already started to eat better and have lost 4kg in as many weeks. Thanks -Terry

  • Hi Kevin, I would like to know the pros and cons to using a 20lb weighted vest for running and endurance training. I am 5’6″ and weigh at 175lbs. wil this help me with my core training as an add-on? -Raul
  • Hey guys!
    I love your show i mostly listen to it throughout my spanish class in high school.
    I’m a 17 year old 5’1 soccer player about 112 pounds and im wanting to train for college. I wanted to know if you had any advice on sport specific weight training and nutrition, i am young and have mostly only used the “women machines” but i would really like to do some serious weight training and aquire some strength and power.
    Thanks alot!
  • Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for a great podcast, i have three questions so i will try and make them short.
    1) What is the difference between feeling an exercise and it being painfull? ,sounds like a silly question i know but mainly in reference to low back work when doing back extensions, good mornings etc how do you tell if it is a good hurt?
    2) Does it matter which order you eat post workout nutrition?,i am a cyclist and find after a 4-5hr ride i will come home and have to eat quite a lot of food, i try and drink a protein/carb shake straight away and then will eat some high G.I food and then wait 10-15mns and eat some low G.I food, is eating in any sort of order beneficial?.
    3) i have noticed that when a sedentry person starts an exercise program they almost always seem to get severe pain in the outside of there shins if they start running or even walking, it seems to start almost straight away but sometimes will be ok and new shoes don’t seem to make any difference.

    Thank you in advance for answering some or all of my questions. Corey (Queensland, Australia)

    With regards to Hannah, I think Kevin’s point about training to avoid ACL injuries etc is very important, more so than the pure strength training. A high-school level athlete may be very well trained for her sport, as Jon says, but this is often focused on performance, and may or may not have a focus on injury avoidance.

    Of course, both is better! There’s no reason that the work Kevin is talking about couldn’t be incorporated into the warm-up for her weight training, which is probably something that most women should be doing anyways given our apparent propensity for ACL injuries.

    Cherrio is goodbye. What about ‘ello guvnors for the english.

    I hope Kev will put that ‘soccer training program’ which he promised Hanna up soon, under articles. A lot of us would be very interested and vgrateful for something informative.

  4. I will this week. Been so slammed with work lately. Keep an eye out for it.
