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. Why do I recommend women start lifting in the 8-to-10-rep range in Thinner Leaner Stronger but men start lifting in the 4-to-6-rep range in Bigger Leaner Stronger?
  2. Should you just track macros when cutting or calories too? And what if your calories and macros don’t match?
  3. How should you modify Bigger Leaner Stronger if you’re no longer a beginner?
  4. How should you get back into working out after taking a long time off?

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.
