In this episode of Quah (Q & A), Sal, Adam & Justin answer four Pump Head questions drawn from last Sunday’s Quah post on the @mindpumpmedia Instagram page. 

  • Mind Pump Fit Tip: Here is an easy way to control your appetite, and your energy, and to improve behaviors that lead to healthier eating. START your day off with a high protein, high fiber meal. (2:36)

  • Justin is no longer the ‘cake’ master. (14:10)

  • Nature vs. nurture in raising successful kids. (26:17)

  • What else is there they can make EXTREME? (39:07)

  • What does security mean in a modern/safe world? (41:07)

  • Kids go through phases. (48:15)

  • The best pre-workouts are NOT the ones that give you the most stimulants, but the ones that know how to balance calm compounds with stimulant compounds. (54:40)

  • Shout out to Harry Mack. (58:08)

  • #Quah question #1 - Is there any point trying to build muscle after 40? Or at this point should I be focusing more on maintenance, being leaner, and longevity? (1:01:00)

  • #Quah question #2 - What is the difference between seated vs standing calf raises? I don't have a seated machine in my gym. Are we splitting hairs, or is it a big difference? (1:08:03)

  • #Quah question #3 - I’ve been seeing a lot of growing popularity with Zercher squats & deadlifts. Is there a benefit to those over traditional squats or deadlifts? (1:12:10)

  • #Quah question #4 - Can I do unilateral training indefinitely? Or should it only be used to fix symmetry issues? (1:17:14)
