In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

PA Crew, Richard here coming at you with a recovery question. For some context, I have been following Jacked Street for several years now and been doing Iron Flex for about a year now. I train first thing in the morning and use Iron Flex as my warm up. The last couple of cycles I have experienced some cramps first thing in the morning and sometimes later in the day. There has not been any changes in nutrition or sleep in that time.

My question is two part: 1) what may be causing this? and 2) what can I do to prevent it?

Don’t Let Poor Movement Cramp Your Style

Early morning training cramping your style? In the latest Power Athlete Radio, Dr. Matt Zanis joins the Crew to help tackle a listener question of why they are cramping up all of the sudden during their AM training.

John, Luke, Tex and Zanis cover all the bases from nutrition, sleep, and deep dive movement solutions. A lot of low hanging fruit for all to gain perspective on their recovery practices and approached to warming up to smash their daily training.
