Listener Q&A:

Prior to asking your question, PLEASE be considerate and do a search in upper right hand corner of this website for the keywords associated with your question. 90% of the questions we receive have already been asked and answered here at BenGreenfieldFitness.com!

====================================== ======================================

Christine asks: I like to do HIIT indoor cycling and have noticed that for the first 10 or so minutes, I yawn several times. Can you explain this?

Anne asks: In your Low Carbohydrate Guide for Triathletes book you recommend a low carb lunch, but I assume on days I do weight training just before lunch (2x per week) should I add some healthy starches for lunch?

Dino asks: I just wanted to ask about CLA for cutting weight in prep for a half/full marathon.

JT asks: can i take greens super food powder stuff, instead of eating veggies? I hate vegetables, and need to get my greens somewhere, this sounded like a good option.

In my response to JT I mention: LivingFuel SuperGreens, CapraGreens, and Enerprime.

Matthew asks: What's the best method to determine a realistic healthy weight?

In my response to Matthew, I reference this ideal body weight calculator.

Melanie asks: A friend of mine has started taking some products put out by a company called Zija International. They have some capsules and teas and “energy” powders. These products supposedly promote weight loss and energy. The primary ingredient in most of their products is moringa. I did a bit of research on moringa and supposedly it is a miracle cure for everything. I did not come across any alarming side effects. My friend says she feels more energy with this stuff. Have you heard of this company's products and any knowledge about the “miracles” of moringa in general?

Todd asks: I hate running, that's why I swim and box. However, I've recently started playing deck hockey that involves a lot of running. I'm getting more muscle and joint soreness after a hockey game than another activity, and it lasts a full day afterward. Do you recommend any foods, supplements, or stretches to help speed muscle recovery so I'm not so sore the next day? I'm trying not to admit I just turned 48 and am still playing hockey like I'm 16, I just don't recover as quickly.

In my response to Todd, I mention Recoverease,  Extreme Endurance (use 20% discount code Greenfield), Kion Flex, topical magnesium, compression, ice, and electrostimulation.

Valorie asks: I'm a non-competitive runner and have been experiencing nagging piriformis pain and sciatica, which radiates down to the back of my knee, for the past 6 months. I went through a few sessions of PT ultrasound which didn't seem to affect it much, and have been foam rolling and stretching twice a day, and following runs, sitting on ice. The pain affects my running gait at the forward and rear extension of my leg and while sitting in the car, or in my office chair. I struggled to complete a marathon last weekend and am now ready to take some time off to resolve it. Will taking a few weeks off from running, along with the stretching and rolling be my cure, or is there a regimen you can suggest to rid me of this pain in the a** once and for all?

Matthew asks: As a graduate student, my lab hour are extremely variable and often involve me waking in the middle of the night for a few hours of work.  When these days happen, I find myself waking with incredible hunger, more so than a normal morning craving.  Do you have any suggestions for curbing this hunger, either the before I go to bed, or when I wake up?

In my response to Matthew, I mentioned Master Amino Pattern whole amino acids.

Also Tekoi has a call in story about the Marathon Dominator and Ioan calls in about the Triathlon Dominator.

Upcoming interviews with David Minkoff, Tom Naughton, the bite scientists and more.

Ask Ben a Podcast Question


4 thoughts on “Episode #166: How To Get Rid of Soreness Really Fast, And Much More.

  1. Valorie says:

    Thanks for the info Ben, and the great comments. I'm working on strengthening my hips and stretching my hip flexors. A desk job and 1 1/2 hr car commute has probably contributed quite a bit to my problem.

  2. GuerrillaRace says:

    One thing for Valorie that I would add is to make sure that she doesn't let her knee float to the outside of her foot (which you mentioned in general) in the car. I know when I was dealing with some piriformis pain in my right glute I had to be very careful while driving. My knee tended naturally to rest to the outside of my foot, which was on the gas pedal. This was something I had to be very conscious of because for me this was a big part of what aggravated the injury. The less I drove and the more I concentrated on keeping my knee in the proper position while I drove, the more quickly I healed.

  3. jeff Hoening says:

    Great podcast (as usual) this morning (listened on the way to the pool). Just a point of clarification on the listener question on using greens powder vs. real vegetables. I actually work for Living Fuel so can speak a bit to the efficacy of SuperGreens. The green foods in SuperGreens (spirulina, broccoli, dulse, kelp, spinach, barley grass leaf) are QAI-certified (independent and more rigorous organic certification than USDA) organic real foods – dehydrated, freeze-dried and pulverized into powdered form. The nutrients (and fiber) from these foods aren't isolated but the actual foods, just minus the water. 1 serving of SuperGreens (2 scoops) has the phytochemical equivalent of 10-15 servings of vegetables. There are additional vitamins, minerials, antioxidants added to optimize the levels, but the foods make up the the vast majority of the powder. It's a staple food for me.

    I suffer every now and then from this horrible sciatica (due to old soccer injury) and found that the PIGEON STRETCH really works!!!
