  • #Quah question #1 – Is progressive overload as important for hypertrophy? Or is stressing the muscle as hard as you can each workout sufficient? (53:13)
  • #Quah question #2 – They say if you are tall you are at a natural disadvantage for squats. Can you discuss different methods to progress and increase range of motion?  Will I hit a point where I can’t advance any further doing high bar back squats? (1:04:55)
  • #Quah question #3 – I’m addicted to the gym and going 6 times per week, even when I’m hurt. Is this good or bad? (1:16:05)
  • #Quah question #4 – I want to help my 65-year-old father get back into shape. He has arthritic knees and pain in his lower back, which I believe is due to weight gain. What are some routines or techniques you would suggest to get started? (1:21:51)
