Matt and Scott answer your questions in Q&A #5. Listeners
submitted questions via email and Instagram and the boys will
tackle them over the course of several episodes.
This week they answer:
- What is your favorite cocktail right
now? Scott keeps it simple: old fashioned, gin
and tonic, maybe a gin martini. Matt has been enjoying bitter
cocktails lately, especially cocktails with amaro.
- What new lifting equipment have you purchased
recently? Scott and Matt just bought
Fitness competition flat bench. It has a softer, more rubbery
pad with good tack and the base at the foot-end of the bench is low
profile so it doesn't interfere with narrow foot placement. Matt
also bought a massage attachment for his jigsaw for pummeling his
hips into submission. Scott is also eyeing a new pair of squat
shoes with a taller 1" heel, considering either the Leistung or an
old pair of Risto's.
- Do you sometimes put someone post-LP (intermediate
or advanced lifter) back onto LP? What kind of gains could they
expect? They do it all the time! And more often that
not, the lifter sets a new 3x5 PR during the LP. More advanced
lifters will periodically peak to test their heavy singles,
tapering their volume as detailed in the Block Programming episode.
Whether it's for a meet or just part of the training block, coming
out of the peaking period LP can work well by exposing the lifter
to more volume. It also works well for intermediates and advanced
lifters coming off a long layoff.
- Who are your favorite SSOC
