1158: Factors that Stall Fat Loss & Muscle Growth, How Often to Change Up Workout Program to Keep Progressing, Exercises that Work Multiple Muscles & MORE

In this episode of Quah (Q & A), Sal, Adam & Justin answer Pump Head questions about how to define a set when multiple muscles are working at once, downsides of repeating the same workout plan for an extended period of time, what to do if you are not seeing results from your diet and workout, and times they struggled with confidence during their personal training career.  Kai Greene jumping on that vegan train a little too quickly.

(42:12) #Quah question #1 – I understand you say 9-18 sets per muscle group/per week, but what do you define as a set when multiple muscles are working at once? For example, would 5 sets of regular bench press count as 5 sets of tricep work as the triceps are still working? (49:54) #Quah question #2 – Can one stay on the MAPS Anabolic program for a couple of years and still see changes in their body and strength? (55:43) #Quah question #3 – I will be 60 in two months, weight training 3-5 times a week and also walk 12 to 15,000 steps per day. I have been on a fitness journey for 20 years and count my macros, but I am struggling to reduce my body fat and increase my muscle mass. I hired a personal trainer a year ago and have increased my weights consistently. I am also following MAPS Anabolic. I am not sure if it’s my age, but I’m just not seeing results. I tend to over train, work a high stress 60 hour a week desk job and wonder if stress is playing into it? I watch my sleep and get consistent 7 hours per night. Any suggestions? (1:01:57) #Quah question #4 – Were there ever times during your personal training career where you struggled with confidence?
