Exercise and Supplementation for High Performance with Wolfgang Unsöld

January 29, 2018, Author: Boomer Anderson

One thing I always tell clients in the first assessment, no matter what specific goals you have, being faster, jumping higher, or rehabbing from an injury. There’s always two non-specific goals that follow. Number one, more energy and number two, better sleep. Independent of what your actual goal is, the more energy you have and the better you sleep, the easier it is to achieve that goal.

The sponsor of today’s podcast is Butcher Box. Butcher Box is my go-to when it comes to getting meat in the United States. By the time this podcast is published, I would have gone to and probably come back from the United States of America. Now I’m on my way tomorrow, and I’m a little uncertain about the quality of the food and meat that I’m going to be getting. Produce is one thing but meat I can get delivered directly to my door through Butcher Box. They have 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef, organic free-range chicken (oh yeah), as well as heritage breed pork – all delivered directly to your door. So if you go (as in my name), they’ll give you USD10 off your first order and free bacon. You get free bacon on your first order. USD10 off. Free bacon, I’ve said it again. Free bacon. It’s raining gold. Enjoy.
