QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
How long will I need to gain muscle effectively and efficiently?
If you are looking to gain 20 pounds of muscle it could take about 3 years depending on your level of dedication. You can gain more quickly but trainign and diet will need to be laser focused.
Hi Steve, I’m just recovering from a shoulder injury. Still a bit weak on the side that was injured. I’m not sure what’s going on but I feel like I have been trying to get strength and stability back off and on for years. Should I completely heal up before I try your program, or can you help create a program that will allow me to train around my weakened shoulder while it heals and hopefully returns to pain free movement and continued strength gains. Also training time is tight for me. What’s the average length of your training sessions? Thank you for any insights you can provide. It’s time for me to get back in good condition!
I'm very comfortable working around injuries and specific time restrictions. If you really feel motivated to roll I'd love to help.
Hey I live in Denmark and are really interested in your training plan, with the time difference it could be a Challenge , I dunno wich time zone you are in West east? Thank you for your reply
50% of my clients are outside the U.S. I have clients all over the world from Australia to the U.K. The time zone is no issue at all.
Do you take on clients who are using steroids?
Mom? Is that you? I told you creatine is NOT a steroid!
Hello, I'm considering hiring your services after my current training cycle ends. I'm going on vacation afterwards and would like to start training as soon as I get back. How long will it take between signing up and having a program ready for me?
Usually it takes 2-3 days max once we talk on the phone depending on the timing.
Hi! I'm not sure whether I should purchase Muscle/Strenth Coaching or Weight Loss Standard Coaching. I am morbidly obese with a decent strength base and looking for a plan that adapts my current workouts/nutrition to get me to where i need to be without ignoring future strengh goals completely. Any guidance?
I am phasing out the fat loss and moving towards just one coaching service that's tailored to your needs. Simple choose muscle and strength and we'll talk and customize everything 100% to your needs.

I'd live to help. Once you sign up we'll set up a time to talk. I'll set up a workout and nutrition plan of attack that will help you reach your goals.
If english is not my first language and I'm not very comfortable talking in english (but I can read it/write it) is it ok if we mantain the communication by text ? on whatsapp or some other app.
We will do all communication one on one using my private app. Communication will be no issue at all. Glad to help.
Im diabetic and want to gain muscle and size, diabetics are mostly restricted to certain diets which makes it harder for them to put on weight, if i purchase your coaching will it be possible for me to maintain my sugar levels and also put on mass simultaneously?
I nearly died from type 2. I know the dietary challenges well. I don't make you eat unhealthy or dangerous foods. Muscle buildign is mroe about calorie and proper protein intake and we'll discuss how to achieve this safely. You don't need sugars or junk carbs.
Hi Steve, stupid question I know but is it the current exchange rate equivalent of $80 dollars a month to UK pounds? I'm based in Scotland. Or would I just translate that to £80 UK pounds? Thanks
As of today $80 USD is equiovalent to $60.56 but that will change daily.
Do you receive form checks on multiple exercises with this 3 month package? Would I submit exercise videos of me performing the movements?
Clients can submit form videos each day without asking. I am in contact with clients daily.
Can you coach me on a powerlifting and bodybuilding mixed program like m/w/f powerlifting and t/th/sat/sun bodybuilding I been doing this type of program and I like it but if a professional like your self has a better way of doing a program like this I would be interested in being coached Thank you sir
Yes, I can coach you.
Hi , is this coaching for people who can only attend physically ? If not will we get coaching plans and messages from you directly ?
Everything is through my app. We set up a time to talk and go over goals, then work together daily to make sure you reach them.
I lost a fairly large amount of wait a few years back but neglected any strength training. I started lifting regularly a little over a year ago and I would like to get more serious about it. I am currently sitting at around 220lbs. My ultimate goal would be to have a lifters aesthetic and sit at around 190-200 lbs. Would you recommend your muscle building coaching or weight loss coaching? I am limited to home gym use, but I do have the means to expand it with various needed equipment.
Muscle building coaching. It's about the same thing. I tailor it to your goals.
Weight loss coaching is more for folks that don't want to lift. Thanks!
Hi Steve, I'm 42, weigh 330, am 6ft.3, have been wanting to change my lazy ways because I have a wonderful family and a want to be around for them for a long time. I just don't want to lose a lot of weight and not be a skinny old dad. I have lifted in the past, currently not working out, and have failed at so many different programs that I have tried. I'm just trying to find something that I can commit to and lose about 80 lbs and really increase my strength. Thanks man.
I'd love to help. I'm with my clients every single day. If you're ready for a big change let's roll!
Hey Steve, I’m 27 and in the army. I want to start adding more strength training while being able to improve my running and rucking. Is this something you have experience with and would be able to help me and program? Thank you for your time.
Absolutely. I work with many clients on the combination of lifting, running, and general conditioning.
I want to jump at this but I am currently planned to take a 2 day break for my shoulders and then this coming week I have my second Covid shot planned so i do not know how long I'll be out for. If i wait until next week so I'm not wasting your time will I miss out on you taking new clients?
I suggest signing up now. It will take several days to get everything in order from the screening call to custom workout.
Is this appropriate to newbies in lifting?
Hey there question if I purchase 1 quantity is that 1 month of 80 $ or do I have to hit 3 for 3 months of 80 $ would love some coaching , looking to add mass and get stronger from head to toe be the biggest version of myself for me and my family
Quantity 1. It's recurring from there.
Hi steve im italian guy i have 35 years old and im interested in a plan for mass building (i love add weights on the bar but is not my primary goal) you coach this tipe of program?
Yes sir. I'd love to help. If you use Whatsapp message me at 513-649-2666.
Or email... email@example.com
Does your online training consist mainly of online video calls or is there also a way to do submitted videos for form checks etc? I am a shift worker and switch from night shifts to day shifts every week. I was fortunate enough to build a gym both at home and work, but sometimes my allotted time might be in the middle of the night.
I communicate daily through my private app. Clients can send form videos every single day and don't have to ask. I'm there 7 days a week. Weekly calls are available.
Hello. I am from Iraq, I see of your workout plans muscleandstrength.com and I want t continue a training plan with commitment. I am 43 yrs old. How can I get that?
If you are interested in one-on-one training once you sign up we will set up a time to talk via Whatsapp. Let me know if you have any questions.
Hey Steve, I’m touching 50 - relatively good shape but I want to hit 50 (8 months) and proudly say ‘F age’. Shall I just sign up ? :)
I'd love to help. Sign up and we'll set up a time to talk and go over goals. Thanks!
Hi Steve, like your no BS approach. I have somewhat limited access to equipment; I have adjustable dumbbells that go up to 52lbs, a barbell with 445lbs of plates, and a weighted vest. No squat rack no bench. Would you be able to program around these constraints?
Absolutely. No problem at all.
Hi steve is the program $80.00 per month or 80.00 every 3 mos
$80 a month.
Hello there Steve, I'm a big fan and been following you for quite a bit. I wanted to look into getting a coach to get me started on a competition style prep or coaching. I would like to compete around 2022-2023 depending on how far I have to go still. Do you guys do something like that? Thanks in advanced
Yes. I've helped people both prepare (off-season) and peak. My clients have been very successful. If you'd like to talk a bit more send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
I am currently working through Starting Strength. I love the program and want to ride it out as long as I can (linear is more important than the specific program). That being said I am 41 years old 191 pounds and my goal is to get strong. My lifts right now are squat 3x5 at 230 pounds, overhead press 3x5 at 115 bench 3x5 at 3x5 at 175, and deadlift 1x5 at 285. I have been taking Redcon MRE once a day to help supplement my diet but I also do not count macros as I should. I eat pretty healthy but just haven't been much for counting calories. In short, I thought about subscribing to your 3-month program and wanted to hear your thoughts.
My main concern with diet is consistency, meaning that you aren't really undereating one day and overeating the next. The more consistent the intake, the better.
If you are interested in learning more, send me a text at 513-649-2666 and we can set up a time to talk. Thanks!
Hey Steve, I know you have already touched on workout frequency but I'm still struggling with this debate. I'm 40 yrs old, been lifting for almost 20 yrs... Everything I read states bro splits are a waste of time and are "not optimal" due to the low frequency. I find myself trying doing 3 day splits Chest/Back, shoulders/arms, legs over 5 days. In about 4 weeks, I'm smoked.. it seems like too much to hit into a workout when the weight gets heavy. My energy dives by the time I get to my third exercise. I know it's good to challenge yourself and sometimes its necessary to get results, but I just dont last long on these high frequency programs. I tend to gravitate towards 5 day bro splits. I find them manageable, more focus, quicker, sustainable, I even have time for cardio afterwards. I also just find them more enjoyable! But I also want results, so I try to follow the research and 99%of the information. Everyone hates on chest day, back day etc.. According to your advice , having a reasonable amount of volume, applying progressive overload and sticking to it is what matters so it shouldn't matter what program you do. Just dont understand why I have this mental block with just training the way I enjoy. Thanks!
There is no "optimal" over the long run. It all evens out in the end. Do what you love, use a good exercise election, be consistent, and get a lot stronger than you are now.
I am interested in your coaching. I am a 61 year old former competitive natural bodybuilder and have had success for many years. I am curious as to whether I can use resistant bands to continue with muscle gains. I have light to XX Heavy bands and can do all the compound movements with them. Thanks Steve.
I could design a rest-pause program with resistance bands, but it would be more optimal to incorporate dumbbells and bodyweight work. It's something we could certainly talk about.
Big fan of your youtube channel. I am 53 diabetic with both rotator cuffs operated on a few years back. I am a police officer, husband and father. 6' 225lbs. I returned to the gym back in september after many years off. My wife and I are doing it together. I have been doing a three (3) day a week routine. I have seen decent progress in density and feeling of fullness in my muscles. No noticable size change but I feel more solid. My concern is my routine. Can you offer any guidance? I will list the routine below. I do this same routine Mon,Wed,Fri... Stretching, 3x12 Bench Press Machine, 3x12 dumbell incline press, 3x12 Pec deck, 3x12 dumbell Arnold Press, 3x12 Machine lateral raise, 3x12 Machine Lat pulls, 3x12 Machine seated rows, 3x12 machine back extensions, 3x12 machine leg press, 3x12 machine leg extensions, 3x12 machine seated leg curls, 3x12 calf raises... All machines at our gym are Nautilus machines. Any help or thoughts are welcome..Thank you for reading...
Thanks for your support.
As far as routines, I can definitely help. I offer both a complete hands-on powerbuilding coaching service that includes a custom workout design or a one-time custom workotu design service that does not involve coaching but will guide you on how to maximize progress for your goals.
Hi Steve : I need a second opinion here . I’m 59 years old and have been on starting strength for 1 year and 2 months now . I’m in the heavy grinding phase . I’m getting strong as hell ; however, the price my body is paying , in joint pain , insomnia , etc , anger , I’m pissed off all the time , I don’t want to go into the gym . I’m in pain 24/7 . Hot flashes , etc . But I’m getting stronger ... is this how it’s supposed to be . I’m not enjoying life anymore . Since I have been on SS , I have not had a break in training , no deload , no rest . Does it have to be this way . I’m miserable . Your thoughts? Thx Tony
No, this is not how it's supposed to be. While compound movements are beneficial, it's obvious at this point you need a more manageable workout structure. While Starting Strength is a decent program, you need to consider a program that treats you better. This may involve some intensity cycling and/or even a slightly less intense frequency.
Steve, Really appreciate your channel. I am a 51 year "Skinny Guy" working my way toward the gym minimums of 225 bench, 315 squat and 405 dead lift. You have taught me a lot already since I started subscribing to your channel. Hope you can answer this one question. Deadlifting...I prefer the feel or kinetics of dead lifting with the trap bar over a regular straight bar. Pros and Cons I should be aware of? What is your preference and why?
Thanks for your support. Email this question to me if you don't mind. I can give a more detailed answer. Thanks!
Doesn't building size and strength kind of go hand in hand.. Or I'd building size different than strength? I mean I would want to get stronger but want the size to show it..
Yes, but lifters are at different stages. Some powerlifters, for example, need off-season and peaking programs or only help with peaking.
Most of my clients are like you. My programs are powerbuilding. They help with size and strength.
I currently have a program I am running. It fits my schedule, and has exercises I enjoy doing (plus I'm limited as I work from home). Same for nutrition, I have a plan and track things on myfitnesspal and it seems to be going good so far. My question is this, can we use my current training system/schedule as a starting point and build/modify from there, or do you prefer to start from scratch when taking on new clients?
Absolutely. I work with my client's preferences and make suggestions to refine the existing eating and workout rather than completely change it.
Hi Steve i have been with many big online coaches before and really felt like my progarms were a copy and paste job and the coaching didn't feel very personal ! How personal is your coaching ? Also will u be selecting what weight for me to us for my lifts ? Thanks in advance for the reply
I am not a copy and paste coach. I understand your concern. I make each program based on your needs, goals, and equipment. I provide you with a progress roadmap and interact with you daily to see how you are doing.
I talk to my clients daily and they have 24/7 access for any questions, form issues, etc.
If interested email me. We can set up a time to talk. email@example.com.
Hey Steve I don’t which one I would need but I’m having a hard time building muscle and I was wondering if you could help me Thanks Jerry
I can absolutely help.
on your youtube said you have a 25 buck first month special but I don't see it on muscle/strength coaching?????
Sorry for the confusion. This deal has a HIDDEN link. It can be found here => https://bit.ly/2TC9FOk
it says its a 3 month minimum is that a one time payment or monthly payment?
Choose "Quantity: 1"
This is a recurring payment of $80 per month that is taken out each month for three months.
Steve. If I follow everything here 100% will I see results? I've been promised results before and have been let down many times. I want to powerlift and I need help with how to eat for the sport and training for the sport.
Absolutely. The hardest part of coaching is to find individuals that will follow a plan and trust a plan.
I've helped thousands of folks over the years, through articles, videos, an coaching. Those that do the work see the results.
I'm not magic, but I can help people find better, and more efficient solutions.
Is this service available for out of state? I live in Pennsylvania but would like the ciaching advice.
Absolutely. I work on a daily basis with clients as far away as India, Saudi Arabia, and Greece. They send me form videos, questions, and meals. I do everything from buildign a workout to helping them with meal planning.
1. Should I alternate deadlifts and rack pulls or is it safe to do both on my pull day? 2. Is there a difference in muscle activation between below and above the knee?
For specific questions not related to this service, I encourage you to join the Massive Iron community on Facebook. Outside of my coaching services and assistance, this is the best way to get answers to specific questions:
