How To Get Strong As A Bull, And Then Get Ripped
555 says @ 00:22:53
Do you think the Strong Lift 555 program is effective for someone trying to bulk up?
~ In my reply, I recommend “Starting Strength” by Mark Rippetoe, the book “Interventions” by Dan John, and my 9 Month Men's Muscle Building Program on TrainingPeaks.
How To Get Better Results From Cold Thermogenesis
Jenna says @ 00:32:16
Is it better to use all cold water (like an ice bath) or cycle between cold and hot water (like a contrast shower) to maximize the effects of cold thermogenesis? Is there a clear winner or is one better for recovery goals and one better for metabolic goals?
~ In my response to Jenna, I recommend the Ray Cronise episode inside the BenGreenfieldFitness phone app. I also recommend my Cold Thermogenesis How-To article.
What To Do About Excessive Sweating
Mike says @ 00:39:43
He's a 44-year-old who has worked out his whole life. In the last 10 years, he has started reacting differently to humidity – he sweats a lot. To the point of embarrassment. Should he shut off the air conditioning? Is there any way he can learn to deal with heat and humidity better?
~ In my reply, I mention an autoimmune protocol.
How Often Should You Poop?
JustWondering says @ 00:50:19
How many times should you poop in a day?
The best natural skin care strategies
Kelcey says @ 00:58:21
She buys skin care products from Hydron but they contain BHA. She emailed Hydron about it and there was some back and forth. In the end, because of her email, they are going to start some testing to see if they can get rid of the BHA in their products and use Rosamox instead. Is this better?
~ In my response, I mention the two BenGreenfieldFitness Inner Circle webinars: How To Make Your Own Sunscreen & Natural Skin Protection and How To Protect Your Skin By Avoiding Chemicals And Choosing The Right Products.
How To Get Rid of A Bone Spur Without Surgery
Bob says @ 01:09:23
He has a serious bone spur near his big toe. He knows surgery is inevitable but is hoping to learn why bone spurs happen and if there is a non-surgical treatment for them.
~ In my response, I recommend Phenocane and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy with an Earthpulse device.
