The Science of Yin Yoga ft. RomWOD’s Daniel Head

Episode 87Brute Strength


This week on the Brute Strength Podcast I’ll be interviewing the voice of RomWOD, Daniel Head. This time around we’ll be diving into the scientific and technical elements of recovery. Recovery is a critical part of our training that is often times overlooked. In this episode we will be going in depth about the benefits of long isometric stretching, optimizing your range of motion, strengthening connective tissue, and how to accelerate recovery so you can keep getting stronger! Be sure to check out our first episode with the guys from RomWOD in episode 25. Enjoy the show.
