Description

In this episode of Quah, sponsored by MAPS Fitness Products (www.mapsfitnessproducts.com), Sal, Adam & Justin answer Pump Head questions about how to measure intensity in order to increase it, how to spot a good trainer, the advantages and disadvantages of different macro ratios, and the importance of building an online business to go alongside in-person training.

  • Updates on fatherhood for Adam: The feeling of guilt, consumption of shows & MORE. (5:13)
  • Mind Pump recommends Stranger Things on Netflix: Nostalgia at its finest. (10:15)
  • Mind Pump Live updates for San Francisco & beyond: Dosist is back, Vuori the ‘Nordstrom’ of return policies, Justin/Skinny Dipped & MORE. (14:15)
  • Robert Oberst’s take on deadlifts, does Mind Pump concur? (20:55)
  • Tom Brady continues to marvel ‘father time’ at the age of 42. Is he considered the GOAT? (26:52)
  • Study finds annual salary needed to afford a house in 50 largest U.S. cities. Where does Mind Pump HQ (San Jose, CA) stand? (36:35)
  • The revolution is coming! Weightlifting better at reducing heart fat than aerobic exercise: study finds. (42:40)
  • #Quah question #1 – What exactly is your definition of intensity? It’s one of the ‘it’ factors you mention along with reps, weight, and sets to help break through a plateau. But how would you measure your intensity in order to increase it? (48:05)
  • #Quah question #2 – In a lot of your past podcast episodes, I have heard a lot about how to spot a bad or inexperienced trainer. For example, trainers just trying to exhaust clients and that is what I mostly see in gyms. How do you spot a good trainer? If you don’t see any in your own gym, how can you go about finding one? (58:17)
  • #Quah question #3 – Assuming someone is getting adequate protein and fat, what are the advantages or disadvantages of different macro ratios? When would you recommend high carb or high fat? Does it matter for the average person? (1:11:00)
  • #Quah question #4 – I am a new trainer and already employed at a gym that is chalked full of leads, but I’m wondering if I should also develop my social media to advertise myself? How important do you think it is to build an online business to go alongside in-person training? Do you think it will lead to being a more successful trainer long-term? (1:25:35)
