NEW Live Lean TV Video Series: Q&A Lightening Round #LLTV

Answering Your Questions on Camera in 1 MINUTE OR LESS!

What up Live Leaners,

Since I’ve been getting so many questions from you, I’ve decided to add a new series to Live Lean TV, called the #LLTV “Lightening Round”. This is where I’m going to answer your questions in 1 minute or less on camera. My goal is to keep each video less than 3 MINUTES! 

To get your question answered on Live Lean TV, send me your questions on TwitterFacebookInstagram (@BradGouthro), YouTube, or in the comment section below.

YOU MUST WRITE #LLTV beside your question to get it answered on an episode!

You ready?

Here are today’s Lightening Round questions:

0:36 Best Exercises To Thicken The Back? <– click to watch video answer with demonstrations

I love chins ups, but be sure to use a full range of motion and bring your lower sternum to the bar (as shown in the above video link). I also love machine rows, but be sure to hold the contracted position for 3-4 seconds.

0:52 Best Rep Range To Build Maximum Strength?

Train with loads 70-100% of 1RM & lift in the 1-6 rep range.

1:05 My Shoulders Hurt When I Train Them. Should I Stop? <– click to watch video answer with demonstrations

Actually you could get away with NOT training them. Shoulders can still grow when left alone because you get plenty of work via chest training.  But if you want to stick with at least one shoulder exercise, stick with shoulder abduction work such as cable lateral raises (as shown in the above video link) once every 10 days.

1:30 How Do I Know If I’m Overtrained?

I would say 95% of people ARE NOT overtrained. But try this tip: record your bodyweight after you go to the bathroom in the morning. If you’ve kept your diet consistent but you see a drop of 3.5% in your bodyweight overnight, you’re probably overtraining. In other words, if you’re 180lbs in the morning, and then drop to 174lbs at night, you may be overtraining. Solution is decrease the volume (the # of sets and reps) but NOT the intensity.

2:05 How I Can Improve My Vertical Jump? <– click to watch video answer with demonstrations

Focus on power lifts like the power snatch (as shown in the above video link). It’s much more effective than those jump stretch-bands in my opinion.

2:16 Do I Like Kettlebells?

Yes I do. Great for the posterior chain (the muscles on the backside) and great for improving explosive strength.
