Q&A with the KingSnake

Steve Kuclo answers reader's training, nutrition, and lifestyle questions.

 QUESTION: 

How do you manage your time with a demanding job, business, and training? ~ Josh D.

 ANSWER 

How to manage it all is definitely something I’ve had to learn how to do over time. As my wife Amanda always says, we are in control of our schedule – so I have to try to not overload myself, which I tend to do. Time management and using a food prep company (like my sponor, Icon Meals) helps us so much with being able to balance frequent travel and our busy day-to-day lives.  

 QUESTION:  

How can I get rid of stubborn lower-back fat? ~ Skander O.

 ANSWER 

The simple answer is "diet". For me, as well as for most men, that is one of the toughest areas to get rid of fat. It always seems to be the last place that it goes away. I've found that if I can keep my cortisol levels down, have a good sleep schedule, and take supplements like yohimbine HCL, it helps keep those subborn areas of fat at bay.

 QUESTION:  

What is the best workout routine for a hard gainer to gain mass? ~ Bibhuti B.

 ANSWER 

The KING-SIZED workout routine! If you don’t gain mass from that program, then it’s not your workout routine that is preventing you gaining mass. You have to look into you diet and life style habits as well.

 QUESTION:  

If you have a lagging body part, is it ok to stop training everything else to focus solely on bringing up that one muscle group? ~ Mark John C.

 ANSWER 

The simple answer is "NO". If you have a very strong, dominant body part, as well as a glaring, lagging body part, I would continue to train everything, but take some time and energy away from the dominant bodypart and put it toward the lagging bodypart instead. 

 QUESTION:  

Do you still do deadlifts off of the floor? ~ Christopher L. 

 ANSWER 

Yes, I still do deadlifts off the floor – but I do it with the purpose of building my back, not just move the weight and go to heavy. I will do 405 for reps, or finish a workout with 315 for a few sets. Being sure to keep strict form with deadlifts is the key for me.
