Hey guys, we received a ton of awesome questions from members of the Open Sky Fitness Podcast Group on Facebook so today we’re taking the time to answer them for you. If you ever have a question or need help with something, you can always ask in the Facebook group and either we or someone in the group can help you out.
Questions we’ll be going over include:
- Muscle rubs, creams, balms, and oil (cold, hot, herbal, Hanako, arnica, CBD/cannabis etc.) – How do they work? Are they actually good for the muscles? What are their benefits?
- How can I get over my fear of reinjury or injuring someone else during a workout, practice, or sporting event?
- What’s Rob’s favorite version of a classic exercise?
- Can CrossFit can be utilized in a normal strength training program?
- Are Nitric oxide boosters and pre-workout powders beneficial for strength and cardio training?
- What foods should we eat after a hard workout and how long should we wait to eat them?
