In this episode of Quah (Q & A), Sal, Adam & Justin answer Pump Head questions about whether the muscle building signal you send when you perform resistance training is specific to only the muscles you train or if it can have an overall effect on the body, training for the firefighter academy, the benefit to sitting cross-legged for hip mobility, and realizations they had in their 20’s that changed their life.
