Description

An eye-opening, myth-busting exploration of how the human body can best recover and adapt to sports and fitness training

In recent years "recovery" has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers.

In Good to Go, acclaimed FiveThirtyEight science writer Christie Aschwanden takes listeners on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance, she examines the latest trends among athletes - from NFL star Tom Brady's infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles' pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps' "cupping" ritual - and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, floatation tanks, and infrared saunas.

At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, Good to Go seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?

Good, not great

Dragged a bit in early chapters - I thought too much time spent debunking non scientific methods of new age recovery options. Took on too much of a negative tone vs focusing on how to recover properly. The last couple chapters were much better and improved my overall perception of the book

Listen to your body

I don’t think this was worth the time to listen to. It basically debunked everything about nutrition, rest, exercise, etc. Just left me thinking there is no right answer for anything and kind of deflated. My workouts, eating, and motivation have all gone down personally because I keep thinking about what she said that really this stuff doesn’t matter.
If you like debunking things this book is great. But it hasn’t helped me and only made me more confused.
I am going to try to listen to my body more to see what happens.
