In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Hey guys, it’s Shirley. Wanting to get your opinions on different methods to assist in recovery. Specifically but not limited to ice baths, saunas, cupping, and floatation tanks. Which ones do you believe are worthwhile and which ones are a waste of time? Thanks, byyye.

The Road to Recovery Will Not Always be Easy

Pain inhibits pain. When you’re feeling jammed up, hitting hot spots in movement, or get DDOMS (Daily Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), your body is telling you something. You may be tempted to throw some money down on common recovery practices like cupping, acupuncture, or couple bags of ice for the tub. No matter the price tag, the solution may leave you feeling better but do they correct the underlying issue?

Dr. Matt Zanis joins John, Luke, and Tex to evaluate all forms of recovery and gauge if they’re worth their weight in epsom salt. Learn where to spend your time and money to accelerate your recovery and enhance your performance in the gym.

Empower Your Performance

Have you been squatting on questions for John, Luke and Tex? Maybe you have asked around, and just can’t land on a straight answer. Take a breather, give us a call, and let us do the leg work.
