Gymchat 235 - Supplementation for Focus & Stress Relief (Kurtis Frank)

This week we'll be examining these two in detail; discussing exactly what works (and the research surrounding it) and what doesn't. Helping us uncover this fascinating topic is Examine.com's own Kurtis Frank, joined by Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.
