Dr. James Hoffman of Renaissance Periodization – “Recovery 101″

Episode 213

This is one of my favorite episodes to date! Dr. James Hoffmann of RP came on the show to talk on Recovery and WOW did he drop some knowledge. Himself and some others from Renaissance Periodization have created “The Recovery Book” (Grab a copy here) and today he came on the show to talk all things Recovery. We geeked out, which is why I loved the episode so much. You can check out all that they do at www.renaissanceperiodization.com or by heading over to @rpstrength on instagram.
