Hi there. Hi there, I’m Mike Matthews. That is Muscle for Life. Thanks for becoming a member of me at this time for a brand new episode, a brand new q and a episode, my forty first q and a episode the place I reply questions that folks ask me over on Instagram each week or two on Wednesday or Thursday, normally. I put up a narrative asking my followers to ask me questions, after which I decide questions which can be attention-grabbing or topical, or questions that I haven’t answered one million instances earlier than already, particularly right here on the podcast.

And I reply them briefly there on Instagram. After which I carry every part over right here to the podcast the place I can share extra in-depth solutions. And so if you’d like me to reply your questions, comply with me on Instagram at Muscle 4, life Health, f o r spelled out, not the numeral for. And search for that story each Wednesday or Thursday and submit no matter questions you need.

And if I discover any of your questions attention-grabbing, topical, or if they’re issues that different individuals are likely to ask that I haven’t already answered many instances earlier than, then I’ll reply your query or questions. So, In at this time’s episode, I’m going to be answering questions on water retention. How do you reduce water retention seed oils?

Are they as dangerous as many individuals declare? How? I’ve been coping with some biceps tendonitis that has been nagging me for a few months now. It went away a few month or so in the past, after which I reaggravated it and I’ll clarify how I did that. So that you don’t make the identical mistake how essential the thoughts muscle connection is and extra.

Okay. The primary query comes from Julian Elias, and he asks, what are methods you fight water retention? I get up lean some days, and puffy on others. Nicely, the most typical causes for big fluctuations in water retention are massive fluctuations in each day water, salt and carbohydrate consumption, in addition to each day stress ranges.

So particularly in case your water consumption goes down, if you happen to drink fairly a bit much less water than you normally drink, then you may discover that if you do begin consuming extra water, you have a tendency to carry a bit extra of it. You look a bit extra bloated. In case you eat much more salt, then traditional, which may be very straightforward to do as a result of the.

Suggestion. The overall suggestion for sodium consumption is a few teaspoon of salt per day. Now, you may have extra salt than that, particularly in case you are bodily lively and also you sweat loads. So let’s say you rise up to 2 teaspoons of salt per day, about 4 grams of sodium per day, however nonetheless, that’s solely two.

Teaspoons of salt per day. Your physique virtually definitely doesn’t want greater than that until possibly you do numerous endurance train outdoors within the warmth and you might be sweating loads every single day. So let’s say you’ve a, a deal with meal or two, possibly it’s a, a deal with day, possibly it’s a few off deliberate meals and also you exit.

To eating places, and customarily talking, restaurant meals goes to be very salty as a result of salt brings out taste, and so most issues that you just prefer to eat most likely include much more sodium than you notice if you happen to haven’t seemed into it. And so let’s say that you just eat six, eight, and even 10 grams of sodium in at some point.

And that’s okay. I wouldn’t suggest it in case you have hypertension, however in case you are in any other case wholesome, it’s okay if you happen to try this now. After which once more, not a each day common incidence. Nonetheless, you might be most likely going to note extra water retention the subsequent day. Your weight goes to be most likely a few kilos increased if you happen to additionally have been simply staying hydrated all through the day, and particularly if you happen to additionally ate extra carbohydrate.

In order that was on my record. Consuming extra carbohydrate causes your physique to retain extra muscle. Is your muscle tissue to retain extra muscle too, which is cool. You may get up with a little bit of a pump if you happen to eat numerous carbs and also you eat numerous sodium at night time, however you may also look a bit fatter. And I additionally talked about stress ranges.

So in case you have a really irritating day that may. Trigger elevated water consideration due to elevated cortisol ranges. In order that’s the, the stress hormone, one of many hormones that your physique produces in response to emphasize that triggers that struggle or flight response. And that’s wonderful and regular acute spikes in cortisol will not be essentially dangerous.

It, it turns into dangerous if it occurs too typically and cortisol ranges are chronically elevated. However acute elevation of cortisol ranges is an efficient factor really. That’s, uh, an acceptable physiological response. But it surely can lead to further water retention and the way a lot actually varies from individual to individual.

Some individuals actually discover it, some individuals don’t. Now, if you happen to maintain these issues comparatively regular, if you happen to maintain your each day water consumption, your salt or sodium consumption, you’re carbohydrate consumption and your stress ranges on a day-to-day foundation, there aren’t main modifications in any of these. Issues, you then most likely is not going to really feel bloated fairly often until there’s one other problem.

Your water retention ranges and your bloating will stay regular and it is best to have minimal bloating. Okay. Ari Attic official asks, the place do you get the memes that you just put up? So on my Instagram, A number of instances per week. I share 5 to 10 memes in my tales, and given the eccentric character of those memes, some individuals are questioning, the place do I discover these items?

Nicely, I really don’t discover them, per se. I do, however I discover them in a gaggle chat with one man particularly who spends. Actually an unhealthy period of time simply ready by means of the underbelly of the web in the hunt for memes. And I decide those which can be acceptable, I believe, for sharing publicly. And uh, I put ’em up on my Instagram.

And if I’ve peaked your curiosity and also you need to see these memes for your self, comply with me on Instagram at Muscle for Life Health. Okay. Ca a 1997 asks seed oils as dangerous as individuals say, or simply one other fad. Nicely, many of the top across the. Purported hurt of seed oils is nonsense. Seed oils, per se, will not be unhealthy.

Nonetheless, a weight loss program that’s wealthy in seed oils might be an unhealthy weight loss program, and that’s the downside, not the seed oils. And if you happen to wanna be taught extra about that, and if you happen to wanna look into the scientific analysis that helps what I simply mentioned, head over to legion athletics.com, seek for refined. Oil and take a look at the article I wrote on this topic.

Jay Madden asks, what have you ever been doing to assist bicep tendon therapeutic course of? So over on Instagram, I’ve been updating individuals in my tales about some biceps tendonitis that I’ve been coping with. It began a few months in the past after I slept. I suppose type of humorous, uh, on my aspect, I keep in mind waking up and feeling a little bit little bit of pinching in my bici, uh, groove in that space the place that bicep tendon runs.

And I ignored it and simply did my regular coaching, felt a little bit bit off. It wasn’t painful per se, nevertheless it was a little bit bit uncomfortable. I might really feel that there was one thing not regular. After which a day or two later, Additionally ended up sleeping on that left aspect. So I’ve the biceps tendonitis on my left aspect, and this time once I wakened, it felt a little bit bit worse.

After which with my coaching a little bit bit worse, and ultimately I spotted that I must get forward of this as a result of if I maintain ignoring it, it simply will get worse and worse. Uh, that’s how these repetitive stress accidents go. I’ve skilled this earlier than. I’ve had some biceps tendonitis on my proper aspect, and so.

What I’ve been doing to handle, uh, this present bout of biceps tendonitis is eliminating the peck tightness and the biceps tightness which can be inflicting it. And so my left peck, I, I didn’t notice it. However I see a therapeutic massage therapist each week. I began doing that once more and I spotted along with her simply engaged on my physique that my left peck was very tight.

There have been some fairly main set off factors in there, that are painful. The ache refers to different areas. You may have hyper contracted parts of the peck, and I didn’t notice it as a result of in any other case it, in my day-to-day life, it wasn’t painful, however, however when she began getting in there and dealing on my left peck, I.

Rapidly realized, oh wow, that, that feels terrible. And when she works on my proper pack, it feels completely wonderful. And in order that has been a part of the difficulty, uh, due to that hyper contracted peck and the hyper contraction and the set off factors are extra pronounced as you progress nearer to my armpit than So you’ve that space, that type of outdoors space of the peck that has been very tight and type of.

Pulling on the shoulder joint. After which I additionally talked about my left biceps, so I didn’t actually notice that there are a few set off factors in there and simply hyper contracted parts of the muscle. In order that’s now additionally pulling on the higher a part of the biceps. And so I’ve been engaged on eliminating these issues, these set off factors and people hyper contracted parts of muscle.

And I’ve been doing that by. Utilizing a therapeutic massage gun every single day. That has been serving to loads. And in addition, once more, I’m seeing a therapeutic massage therapist each week, which I notice not everyone can do who runs into these issues. However the therapeutic massage gun every single day is simpler than seeing a therapeutic massage therapist as soon as every week.

And so, uh, foam rolling may also be good for significantly the pecks. In case you lookup on-line, the way to foam roll your pecks, that may assist loads. In my case, it. Doesn’t fairly assist due to the awkward nature of the a part of my left peck. That must be labored. You type of should get beneath, virtually like making an attempt to get to the peck miner, and it would even be a little bit of peck miner.

It’s exhausting to know precisely, however foam curler doesn’t work. Nonetheless, a therapeutic massage gun works as a result of I can angle it from the surface, consider outdoors of my physique, type of angling in towards the midpoint of my physique. And so I’ve been doing that. I’ve additionally been avoiding workouts that trigger ache. I’m okay with a little bit little bit of discomfort.

So if, if 10 is excruciating ache and nil isn’t any ache, I’m okay with like a two. Like okay, a little bit little bit of discomfort. It’s not ache, it’s not. Ouch. It’s simply, eh, that doesn’t really feel good. I’m okay with that, however it could possibly’t be ache as a result of if you happen to maintain working by means of ache, then the repetitive stress harm simply will get worse, or minimally doesn’t go away.

Avoiding the workouts that trigger ache is likely one of the most essential parts of therapeutic. Any type of repetitive stress harm you need to cease doing the issues which can be frequently aggravating the issue. So, for instance, I cease. Barbell bench urgent, a minimum of flat bench urgent incline feels okay. So I’ll do a few of that also, however no flat bench urgent or decline bench urgent even, as a result of they simply don’t really feel proper.

Identical factor with dumbbells. Dumbbells really of any sort don’t fairly really feel proper. So flat urgent or incline urgent dumbbells doesn’t really feel good. It will get to ache, it will get to ow. That doesn’t really feel good, so I don’t do it. There’s additionally an incline. Urgent machine that feels good, that causes little or no discomfort, possibly one out of 10.

So I try this, and I used to be performing some pec deck, some pec flies as effectively, only for Pex, however even that was inflicting a bit an excessive amount of pressure. So it was simply stopping the therapeutic and was dragging out this means of getting again. To regular, so I even minimize these out. So for my packs, all I’m doing proper now could be incline, bench urgent and incline machine urgent.

It’s an Atlantis plate loaded, incline urgent machine. It’s, it’s really nice. And I additionally stopped doing aspect raises as a result of these have been aggravating. The biceps tendon and the one triceps train that places no pressure in any way on that tendon or kneeling. Overhead rope extensions, which is a good train.

Most individuals try this train Standing and standing is okay, however I really feel a little bit bit extra secure kneeling, so I really desire the kneeling variation, however that overhead extension, nice triceps train, isolation train clearly, and no pressure in any way in my biceps tendon. So that’s the solely triceps train that I’m doing proper now.

And I can pull, however even there are a few row like. A few horizontal rowing workouts that I like that don’t work proper now, like an in depth grip cable row doesn’t really feel proper, however a barbell row feels wonderful. So I Barbell Highway final week as a substitute of the shut grip cable row. And so the purpose is I’ve modified my coaching fairly a bit to permit this biceps tendon to heal.

And I’m coaching in a means that I wouldn’t usually. Prepare, and I don’t even significantly like solely doing one train actually for my pex and never having the ability to do a few the triceps isolation workouts that I love to do. I can’t actually do a correct shoulder exercise. Even overhead urgent is hit or miss.

Some weeks it feels wonderful and I do it some weeks it. It doesn’t really feel wonderful, so I don’t do it. Nonetheless, I’m prioritizing dealing with the biceps tendon. So this already labored. Beforehand, I discussed that a few month in the past. It was feeling completely wonderful, and so I went again to my regular coaching after which I re-aggravated it within the mistake that I made there, I, I ought to have identified higher, however the mistake that I made is I loaded the tissues too intensively, so I went again.

To the barbell bench press and went again to a standard working weight, possibly 2 25, 2 45, one thing that I can do reps with. I’ve the power to do, however inside two or three weeks of doing that, my biceps tendon was bothering me once more as a result of I hadn’t totally resolved the underlying points. The peck tightness, the biceps tightness, and I went again.

To comparatively heavy weights pretty shortly on these workouts that have been inflicting issues beforehand. And so the correct solution to totally resolve points like these is to, one, just remember to have discovered the underlying trigger and deal with that, and two, just remember to ease again into the workouts that have been inflicting issues.

Beforehand don’t aggressively load these tissues. What I ought to have achieved, despite the fact that I hadn’t correctly addressed the underlying points, however what I ought to have achieved is gone again to, let’s say the flat barbell bench press and simply begin with 1 35 and do what would possibly usually simply be some warmup units and that’s it.

After which go off and do another workouts with heavier weights, extra intense coaching that , don’t. Irritate or had didn’t worsen the biceps tendon. After which in my subsequent flat barbell bench press session, possibly transfer as much as 180 5 and do units with a number of good reps nonetheless left within the tank. So possibly units of six or eight or 10, however the place I might do a minimum of one other 3, 4, 5 reps.

So not pushing near failure simply but, after which go off, do different workouts. After which the next week, then possibly if every part’s nonetheless feeling wonderful, bounce as much as 2 25, getting again to my regular coaching weight and possibly do a set of 4 there nonetheless with a couple of good reps left within the tank and so forth till I’m coaching usually once more on that barbell bench press.

And the identical strategy would apply once more to another train that was beforehand inflicting issues. So anyway, that’s what I’ll do that time. I’m additionally icing the. Biceps tendon space a few instances per day just because it helps. I do know icing isn’t almost as efficient as many individuals have lengthy thought it to be, however for this downside, it does assist me, and I’ve skilled that additionally on the opposite aspect of my physique.

A few years in the past once I had biceps tendonitis on the precise aspect, and that really stemmed from the subscapularis. So there that was very tight, after which there have been, it’s exhausting to know precisely what was tight on the bottom of my physique as a result of it might have been Terry’s, it might have been infraspinatus.

It’s exhausting to know precisely, nevertheless it was in that space and really tight, painful set off factors actually needed to work. By means of that I noticed a bodily therapist after which I used to be ready to make use of a therapeutic massage gun and I really, it, it was once I was in Virginia in an workplace. So one of many guys who labored with me would come and therapeutic massage gun these couple of factors on my again and we’d simply gun it every single day till I.

The ache would subside and a few stretches, we’d gun the subscap once more simply till we had brought on it to, to chill out a minimum of quickly. And that plus the common icing, plus avoiding the workouts that have been inflicting issues then, which, as a result of the underlying trigger was totally different then the workouts have been totally different.

Like I keep in mind then I might do dips and peck flies with no points in any way. Whereas proper now I can’t do dips and. Peck flies. And final is staying affected person. Sadly, tendonitis tendon irritation, it simply takes time to resolve E, even beneath the most effective circumstances, it could possibly take wherever from one to 3 months, relying on numerous elements, and I’m okay with that.

So I’m simply staying affected person. I can nonetheless get pleasure from my exercises and I do know if I simply stick with my little protocol, then I’ll get previous this and get again to what I love to do. At the very least I like greater than what I’m presently doing.

The subsequent query comes from Nick Matthews Match, and he asks, how essential is Thoughts Muscle Connection or pumps, really.

So let’s speak about Thoughts Muscle Connection, as a result of that’s the one I get requested extra about. So, The thoughts muscle connection is just not, I wouldn’t say it’s like an integral part of coaching. Nonetheless, it’s a good coaching tip, and that tip is when performing isolation workouts, particularly, if you happen to give attention to the goal muscle group, in order that may be one muscle within the case of a unilateral train, or it may be two muscle tissue.

Like if, consider a biceps curl. So in case you are doing an alternating dumbbell biceps curl, then it’s one after the other. In case you are. Doing a barbell biceps curl, then you might be coaching each your biceps on the similar time. However you’ve that focus on muscle group and if you happen to give attention to that all through every rep, if you happen to actually really feel it contract, you give attention to that contraction, you actually really feel it lengthen.

You actually give attention to on that lengthening that. Might enhance muscle activation, which in flip could enhance your outcomes over time. There’s some analysis to assist that. Nonetheless, that isn’t almost as essential as say, coaching with the precise depth, coaching with the precise load, coaching near muscular failure, doing the correct quantity of quantity.

Progressively overloading your muscle tissue by including weight over time. That’s the easiest way, that’s the best solution to progressively overload. There are different methods, however the different methods are actually simply type of a, a method to the top of having the ability to add weight to the train getting stronger. Now, one of many different explanation why the thoughts muscle connection is just not almost as essential as these different issues is, it doesn’t apply.

To compound workouts, particularly essentially the most troublesome compound workouts, the heavy ones with these, you need to give attention to exterior cues. You need to suppose, push the ground away if you’re squatting or push the bar away when you find yourself bench urgent. And if you happen to wanna be taught extra about weightlifting cues, and the precise cues could make an enormous distinction.

They may help you preserve good type, they may help. Enhance your efficiency, and significantly on the large workouts that provide the most bang for the buck when it comes to complete physique muscle and power improvement. Head over to legion athletics.com, seek for cues C ues, and also you’ll discover a few articles giving good, and in some circumstances evidence-based cues.

There’s some analysis even on particular cues during which ones work the most effective. So when you find yourself performing compound workouts, significantly. Your hip hinge workouts, your deadlifts, your squats, your bench presses. Your overhead presses. You will do loads higher with the cues you could examine [email protected]

Exterior cues than inner cues. Like specializing in one thing that’s in or in your physique, like your biceps contracting. So if you consider when you find yourself squatting, what will enable you to extra a cue, like throw the bar off of your again. Some individuals like that, like after they get down within the gap after which you need to explode up, they consider.

Throwing that bar off of their again, like throwing it up within the air, squatting so violently that it flies off of their again. Is that gonna enable you to essentially the most? Or is considering or focusing in your quads? Contracting going that can assist you essentially the most? Whereas analysis may be very clear on that, the previous strategy, assuming it’s a superb cue and it really works for you, goes to work higher than making an attempt to give attention to any particular person muscle group that’s concerned.

In a serious compound train. Okay, subsequent we have now a query from Polly Graves and he asks, white versus complete wheat carbs on a bulk slash minimize. Is one higher for physique or is it extra about complete energy? I might say go white if you’re bulking as a result of complete wheat is extra filling and that makes bulking.

Tougher, particularly when you find yourself a minimum of a few months in and if you really feel like you might be pressure feeding your self each meal, a minimum of each meal after lunch and simply usually, you might be all the time full. You lose your motivation to eat meals actually. Even simply lean, bulking, even slight calorie surplus, only a 10% calorie surplus.

Do this constantly for a few months, and you will be very sick of consuming. So meals which can be very filling for not very many energy or simply which can be extra filling than an alternate choice of that meals. Like white rice versus brown rice, for instance, or white wheat versus complete wheat. Are going to make it just a bit bit more durable since you are simply gonna be a little bit bit fuller from these energy.

And so when you find yourself lean bulking, you make totally different selections than when you find yourself chopping. And this refined versus complete grain is one instance of that. Consuming energy is one other instance. If you find yourself chopping, you need to drink as few energy as attainable, usually talking. However when you find yourself lean, bulking, consuming energy, which don’t should be simply junk energy, I’m not speaking essentially about.

Out soda. It might be milk for instance. That may assist loads as a result of you may drink a pair hundred energy of milk and never really feel very full from it. Nonetheless, if you happen to have been to eat a pair hundred energy of fruit, when you find yourself lean bulking, when you’ve been lean bulking for a while and you might be usually full, you might be usually not serious about consuming the additional fullness that comes from the fruit can simply make it that a lot more durable.

So coming again to the query then, if we now speak about chopping, you simply do the other of what I used to be describing for lean, bulking. Go along with the comparatively unprocessed grains as a result of one motive, as a result of they’ll be extra filling and after we are chopping the, one of many prime priorities is to reduce starvation if we will.

Decrease starvation and we will eat meals we usually like, and if we will have good power ranges, if we will sleep effectively, have good exercises. Reducing is fairly dang straightforward. The one factor that virtually talking that may actually get in the best way at that time is socializing. You recognize, in my expertise. Listening to from and dealing with many individuals through the years, the extra you eat out when you find yourself chopping, the more durable it’s going to be to regulate your energy and management your macros.

It may be achieved, nevertheless it takes additional effort, and if somebody isn’t keen to place in that additional effort, then it could possibly derail the complete course of. However as long as that doesn’t occur, and as long as we have now the, the opposite containers that I discussed, test, then chopping might be largely a breeze. Okay, Peter g Doit asks, exercising with a sore throat slash lung an infection.

If not, take the week off. Further relaxation is all the time the neatest transfer if you really feel even a little bit bit sick, and so when you find yourself positively sick, positively additional relaxation in each circumstances. You’re feeling like one thing is approaching, you’re preventing one thing off. Skip your coaching, additional, relaxation, sick, skip your coaching, additional relaxation.

And by doing that, you aren’t going to contaminate others which issues. And you might be additionally going to cut back your possibilities of getting much more sick as a result of intense train stresses the physique and it acutely impairs immune perform. Whereas mild exercise has been proven to probably stimulate immune perform. So in case you are coming down with one thing or you might be flippantly ailing now, in case you are in mattress with a fever, keep in mattress with a fever.

Going for a stroll might be not going that can assist you until it simply appeals to you emotionally and psychologically since you are sick of. Sitting in mattress. I perceive that. Nonetheless, in case you are getting sick or in case you are flippantly sick and also you need to do one thing a little bit bit bodily lively, simply go for a stroll.

Once more, mild bodily exercise may very well velocity up your restoration. Okay. SIB one asks, what’s the newest conspiracy principle that you just imagine in? Nicely, I’ve an issue with the time period conspiracy principle as a result of I desire recognizable sample and , it’s exhausting to discover a good conspiracy principle nowadays as a result of all of them maintain coming true.

Subsequent up, we have now a query from Sandy Amara. Three. I need to improve bone density reps and units. So right here’s a, a quote from a research that I linked right here on Instagram quote. The best skeletal advantages from resistance coaching have been achieved. When the resistance was progressively elevated over time, the magnitude of mechanical load was excessive.

Round 80 to 85% of 1 RET max train was carried out a minimum of twice every week, and enormous muscle tissue crossing the hip and the backbone. We’re focused. So what we’re right here is progressive overload. 4 26 reps per set, a minimum of two exercises per week, and a few hip hinging and a few squatting. That sounds very acquainted.

That sounds loads like what I’ve been preaching for the reason that starting, for the reason that first version of Bier Stronger again in, uh, 2012. I imagine that was, and also you’re gonna discover that in my ebook for ladies, thinner, leaner, stronger, that strategy, the weights don’t begin out that heavy. As a result of virtually talking, I’ve discovered that ladies who’re new to power coaching appear to do finest with a bit lighter weights, not mild, however as a substitute of 80 to 85%, one rep max, extra like 70 to 75%, one thing round eight to 10 reps p.c.

After which as they acquire power work into some heavier weightlifting and a minimum of two exercises per week in my books and applications, there’s, uh, an choice for 3 exercises per week. You might do two, however I give 3, 4, 5 day choices within the books, and that additionally applies to my most up-to-date ebook, muscle for Life, which was written particularly for the 40 plus crowd women and men.

Okay. So Tiffany Marie asks, what’s your tackle alcohol? Nicely, sadly, Alcohol is a poison, I might say the load of the proof is evident right here. It’s unhealthy within the sense of not conducive to good well being. Nonetheless, some individuals’s our bodies can course of alcohol higher than others, making it kind of unhealthy in particular person circumstances.

And so because of this some individuals reply very poorly to alcohol in the event that they drink even comparatively small quantities, sometimes. They really feel very dangerous the next days. After which you’ve different individuals who drink reasonable quantities of alcohol frequently and who don’t expertise the identical forms of after results.

Nonetheless, these individuals are harming their well being to a point. Even when they don’t notice it and so they’ve gotten used to it and so they say they really feel wonderful, what these individuals will typically say, and I do know this as a result of I’ve heard from lots of them through the years, that after they cease consuming alcohol, they really feel loads higher and so they notice that what they thought of feeling wonderful with common alcohol consumption is just not wonderful if in contrast.

To the usual of how they really feel with no alcohol or little or no alcohol. All that mentioned although, if you’d like a easy, sensible suggestion, evidence-based suggestion, in case you have, let’s say a couple of drinks per week or much less, and in any other case you reside a wholesome way of life, you train frequently, you eat numerous nutritious meals, you preserve a wholesome physique composition, you get sufficient sleep, you preserve wholesome quantities of stress, you aren’t fully wired on a regular basis.

You don’t have something to fret about, nevertheless, In case you have been to not drink alcohol in any way, you would possibly discover that you just really feel even higher. You would possibly discover higher power ranges. You would possibly discover much less mind fog. Uh, you would possibly discover that you’re mentally sharper, you would possibly discover higher sleep, and all of these issues can add as much as a major enchancment in simply general high quality of life.
