Maximizing Recovery with Dr. James Hoffmann of Renaissance Periodization

Episode 322

Today we’re giving you a throw back, going back over 100 episodes to pull out one of my favorite podcasts to date – also one of the most informative. In this episode, we have Renaissance Periodization’s very own, Dr. James Hoffmann. James is the lead author in the book “Recovering From Training” which is by far the most comprehensive and straight forward guide on recovering.

In this podcast, you’ll hear us go into each and every chapter of the book – covering the hierarchy of recovery, so that you can make the most out of your training. Follow James on instagram @rpdrjames
