Bonus Q&A

Every person that we interview on The Super Strength Show has an opportunity to answer some extra questions that aren’t asked in the podcast. It’s a chance for our listeners to learn a little bit more about our guests and to get even more value from our show. Check out Ric Drasin’s answers below!

Can you share one of your habits that contribute to your success in the gym? My habit is going to the gym every morning after breakfast. That’s my time and has become a habit for 50 years.

What are your favourite exercises? I really don’t have any. Depends on the day and what joints aren’t sore.

What are your favourite muscle groups to train? I like shoulders and arms.

What are your favourite pieces of equipment? That’s changed with age. Was always dumbbells, but hammer machines are good.

What is currently on your workout music playlist? I don’t have one.

How do you psych up for a workout or set? That’s also a habit of being happy and then proceeding.

What was one exercise or routine that gave you great gains in muscle mass and/or strength? Up and down the line dumbbell presses and the same with dumbbell laterals. One set each way does it.

What’s your favourite way to speed up recovery between workouts? B12, food and rest.

What’s your favourite meal? Prime Rib

What’s your favourite cheat meal and how often do you indulge? Don’t really have one any more. I think Ice Cream is the culprit.

What supplements do you feel work well for you? CLA, Fenegreek, Milk and Egg protein, and Yohimbe.

What do you do to relax? Graphics on the computer or play my guitar.
