Episode Summary

In this episode of The GS Nation Podcast, Cary and Dave talk about the difference between over-training and under-recovering, two things that can show up in your body in a very similar way. We define both, give examples of each, and discuss how you know which category you may fall under. We also discuss a couple of recovery techniques that you should be utilizing every day, whether you want to be an elite athlete or whether you just want to look good, feel good, and show up better for everyone else around you! Our next episode with Kenzie of Vitality Float Spa dives deep into this topic as well, so be sure to check that out too! Enjoy!
