Powerlifting and CBD

Herbstrong has the honor of working with some of the most professional and dedicated athletes in the world of sports.  Athletes that are committed to their sport and focus on their goal with passion and drive. We are pleased to share an interview with Andy Huang, "that_hugeasian_guy" on IG - Powerlifter and coach in Southern California.  We hope his experience will help guide others looking for answers. He shared his experience specifically to be of help to others, and we appreciate him so much for it! 

What is your sport/passion and how often do you practice per week? How rigorous is training or practices?

I am a world class Powerlifter, top 3 in the world for my weight class. I train 5 days a week. Extremely rigorous and heavy training. Pushing the limits of my body everyday. Often lifting over 700-800 lbs during workouts.

Do you ever feel sore, tired, or get injuries often?

Soreness and being tired is a weekly occurrence. Lifting the amount of weights I do takes a toll on my body every day. And the energy and effort demands leave me tired and fatigued every day. There might be 5-7 days a month where I feel ‘normal’. 

What do you like about, or what role does Herbstrong have in your routine? 

Herbstrong products provides an essential daily role in helping me recover.

Do you have a specific routine you follow when recovering from training?

I use Recovery Cream on sore muscles as needed. I use Herbstrong CBD oil drops 20 min every night before bed

What advice would you give to someone who has never tried CBD before? 

Just give it a try. You can start with a small amount and increase as you want. Do your own research and see if this may be something you can benefit from...if taking a few simple drops with no side effects is all it takes, what else can you ask for?!?!
