Q&A: Weight Gain Plateaus, Sleeping Better, and Training Beliefs Now vs. Then

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. “I burn a lot of calories at work and have a hard time gaining weight and training hard because of low energy levels. What should I do?” 
  2. “I wake up tired even when I sleep 7 or 8 hours. What can I do?” 
  3. “Have you had any long term training beliefs changed by research in the last year or two?” 

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.
