Recovery

Move blood, flush by-products of previous day’s effort and create a demand for food. -Gym Jones on Recovery A mature message, that is not always easily digestible, but when it’s from the crew at Gym Jones, it’s honest and accurate. I could add to this statement, but will refrain. If you’re an athlete, or want to […]
