Description

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: Hurry is the enemy of peace, joy, and growth. (1:46 )

  • What’s going on in Mexico? (14:41 )

  • The stress before election years. (16:31 )

  • COVID vaccines could be partly to blame for the rise in excess deaths since the pandemic. (19:44 )

  • Fauci is getting grilled! (24:13 )

  • Joy Mode for women? (25:53 )

  • When you know you’re getting too big. (28:47 )

  • The importance of correctional exercise knowledge for trainers and coaches. (37:10 )

  • The beauty of Sicily, old-man strength, and winning the genetic lottery. (40:33 )

  • Shout out to The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry: How to Stay Emotionally Healthy and Spiritually Alive in the Chaos of the Modern World book. (53:26 )

  • #Quah question #1 - Any suggestions to help build muscle more efficiently if I don't have time to rest at least 2-3 minutes between sets and can’t go more than 3 days a week to the gym? Can I still build muscle by resting 1 minute to a minute and a half between sets? (54:31 )

  • #Quah question #2 - Is it possible to do too much walking & it could cause metabolic harm? (58:08 )

  • #Quah question #3 - What is your recommendation for a 13-year-old boy who would like to start strength training? I have been lifting for years and have several of your programs, but I want to make sure what he does is age-appropriate and that he begins this journey the right way. (1:00:05 )

  • #Quah question #4 - I’ve just come across the term “functional fitness.” Have you all heard of this? What are the differences and benefits between traditional lifting and functional fitness? (1:04:07 )
