In this article I will share what I believe is one of the best systems an why? As you get older the toughest part is how to recover faster.
The science and nutrition behind recovery is light years ahead of what was happening just 15 years ago for me personally while attending UCLA. Here is a list of my personal tips for recovery:.

Building core rotational strength in the critical core muscles stabilizes your spine, allowing you to be more balanced as you move on the court. The Functional Movement Screen is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function.
The Functional Movement Screen: By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries.
