Gymchat 253 - Improving Recovery & Performance (Sincere Hogan)

Maximize your time with the iron.


No matter what your training goals are, chances are that at some point you've thought about recovery. What to do - and when - in order to spend as much quality time as possible around the iron.

This week we'll be exploring those various recovery options. The things to do before/during/after training, and between the workouts themselves. Adjusting sleep, oxygen intake, temperature and so on.

Helping us get a handle on everything is New Warrior Training Systems' Sincere Hogan, joined by Personal Trainer and Strength Athlete Josh Hewett. Fantastic.


NB : We'd love to hear your questions and comments. If there's a particular subject you'd like Sincere and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat and leave a comment or jump in the Hangout and ask it directly.
