Description

In this episode of Quah (Q & A), Sal, Adam & Justin answer Pump Head questions about signals that indicate you will benefit from calorie increase or decrease, why some people lose weight when reverse dieting after hitting a plateau, the message that we aren't meant to be lean all year long and that wanting to maintain a lean body is bad for our health, and the ideal ratio of strength you should have between your bench, deadlifts, and squats.

  • A Very Happy Mind Pump Valentine’s Day. (4:20 )
  • The joy of going down memory lane through old photos. (8:03 )

  • #Quah question #1 – What are some signals you can hone in on to know when you can benefit from a calorie increase or decrease? I have been around maintenance for a while and recently seen some slight puffiness. Have I adapted to that amount and need to slowly increase, or is it a good time to go down? (45:19 )

  • #Quah question #3 – It recently seems a common message in the online fitness space is that we aren't meant to be lean all year long and that wanting to maintain a lean body is bad for our health. What are your thoughts on this type of message? (53:56 )
  • #Quah question #4 – Is there an ideal ratio of strength you should have between your bench, deadlifts, and squats? I can bench my bodyweight, but I can’t do that much more with deadlifts and squats. (1:00:40 )
