Q&A: Pre-Hab, Ideal Cutting Protocol, and Doing a Single Cycle of Steroids

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 three questions:

  1. Are there any pre-hab routines or programming you’d recommend prior to starting a weight training program
  2. When cutting with limited time would I do 5 days of lifting and 1 HIIT session or 4 days of lifting and 2 HIIT sessions?
  3. What’s wrong with taking a cycle or two of steroids and then cutting them out cold turkey? 

If you have a question you’d like me to answer, leave a comment below or if you want a faster response, send an email to mike@muscleforlife.com.
