“Recovery is big. People think you need to work out to maximize performance but recovery has become as big in the equation as strength and conditioning and nutrition.” 

“I’m the crazy guy that wakes up at 5 am every day and does cold therapy, hot therapy, meditation, workout… I’m very disciplined with my health and nutrition.” 

“I still train and take care of my body like I’m a pro athlete and I think most people should be doing that.” 

“You have to make decisions on an everyday basis and hopefully you make a lot more good decisions than bad and still enjoy life at the same time.” 

“My mom thought she was going to get high from rubbing CBD on her knee, which is just not the case.”
