15:54 – [Viewer Comments: Discussed] I’ve been going through your recipe videos. I tried your quick
wrap snack attack, it was awesome.

19:15 – How intense should my workouts be in the gym? Should I go to failure every set?

to you?

25:36 – ​I have been working out for a year now, but whenever I do chest press or bench press, my
chest gets fatigued or gives in after 2 sets of 10 reps. Is it because of poor muscle endurance or

feeling like I’m starving myself.

29:36 – What is the benefit of taking protein and glutamine? I know that it helps you with soreness
and helps keep going, but are there any other qualities?

30:31 – How’s the Lat? I’m guessing from the pull-ups you did at Critical Bench that it’s healed.

31:55 – Is decline bench press a good idea? I hear it is dangerous because it causes high blood

33:12 – Do you have any tips to help with lat activation?

about 11 years ago. What do you recommend my approach to start? What exercises should I start

01:04:25 – Do you train to music, and what do you listen to?

01:04:47 – ​I mistrust supplement companies, to the point I avoid them now. I have a suspicion that a
