190614 - FYF & Soapbox Friday


“I use CBD to help recover, cure my GERD and repair my relationships, Get CBD oil for 10% off using code Inluenzer.” “Here’s a photo of me smiling, shoving a protein/energy drink/recovery bar towards the camera, extolling the virtues of said product and my quest for athletic dominance.”
We all see the thinly veiled ads on Insta-famous-gram. People change brand allegiances as soon as they’re shown the money. Are you as the individual unable to perform at your maximum ability because of a lack of a product?
Recovery is an important component of performance for sure, but are you doing the bare minimum to recover before slapping all sorts of supplements at your issues?

Bare minimum: Lots of sleep, lots of water, meat, vegetables, nuts, seeds, some fruit, little starch, no sugar. Keep alcohol to a minimum. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.

Once you get that in order, maybe experiment with supplements (see, it’s in the title “Supplement”)
If you’re missing an element of recovery, no amount of protein powder or CBD oil will be able to fill that gap.
