I’ve churned through over 150,000 emails, social media comments and messages, and blog comments in the last 6 years.

And that means I’ve fielded a ton of questions.

As you can imagine, some questions pop up more often than others, and I thought it might be helpful to take a little time every month to choose a few and record and share my answers.

So, in this round, I answer the following four questions:

1. How important is time under tension (TUT)?

2. How important is periodization?

3. What are the best weight loss foods?

4. Is lifting lighter weight explosively better for gaining muscle and strength than lifting heavier weight more slowly?
