52: Cutting Update + Q&A: How long does it take creatine to kick in? Should you try to stick to your macros when you’re sick? If your sets are hard but not close to failure are you just maintaining? Can you calorie cycle in a surplus?

In today’s Q&A episode I start off by giving an update on how my cut is going and then dive into your questions 🙂

MY CUT UPDATE:

-Why cutting hasn’t been that hard

-How can you make your fat loss easier/more convenient

-The people who you want to look like or those who “make it look easy” probably live a life you would fucking hate

-WHY it’s important not to compare yourself to the sub-30 year olds you follow on IG with no kids, no social life, and an identity tied to their fitness…

Q&A:

-How long does it take creatine to kick in and make you retain water?

-Should you try to stick to your macros when you’re sick and lose your appetite?

-If your sets are hard but you don’t go close to failure are you just maintaining?

-Can you calorie cycle in a surplus (eat more on some days, less on others)

-What are some exercises I’m excited to do back in the gym

-Do your rest changes change as you progress across the mesocycle?
