Questions & Answers

Q: What are some easy protein snacks?

Magnus suggests beef, chicken, eggs, tofu, or protein shakes as great options for protein-packed snacks.

Q: Should I train in the morning or afternoon?

Magnus believes it doesn't matter as long as it fits into your schedule. He prefers afternoon workouts but acknowledges the benefits of setting a physical and mental standard for the day with a morning workout.

Q: Should I split my routine or do push and pull exercises on the same day?

Magnus recommends dividing push and pull exercises into separate days for men who want to build muscle mass. However, for women, combining push and pull exercises in the same day is suitable.

Q: Can kettlebell training help with gaining muscle mass?

While kettlebell training can build strength, gaining muscle mass is more dependent on nutrition. Magnus suggests a combination of free weights, kettlebells, bodyweight workouts, and isolated exercises for overall fitness.

Q: How should I manage nutrition on a vacation?

Magnus advises enjoying vacation and having a couple of indulgent meals. If vacations are infrequent, it's important to strike a balance between sticking to a diet and enjoying local cuisines.

Q: Does exercising in a hoodie help burn more calories?

Magnus recommends against wearing excessive clothing during exercise as it can make you sweat more without significant benefit. It may also reduce energy levels, hindering proper lifting and performance.

Q: How did Magnus start as a trainer?

Magnus began his fitness journey 22 years ago, starting with a personal training certificate and eventually obtaining various certifications. His background in sports and interest in training and nutrition influenced his career choice.

Q: Where did Magnus get his garage gym equipment?

Magnus obtained most of his gym equipment from a brand called Eleiko, known for its high-quality weightlifting equipment. It is a serendipitous connection as Eleiko is based in the same region of Sweden where Magnus grew up.

Q: Should I only count protein intake when trying to lose belly fat?

While protein is crucial for muscle maintenance and building, overall calorie deficit is essential for fat loss. It's important to monitor fat and carb intake to fuel the body while maintaining a deficit. Consuming excess protein can also be converted to fat.
