Answer: I am using Ascent Protein and trust it with my family.
My daughter also started lifting weights and playing travel softball.
She puts a scoop of Ascent protein in a shaker bottle with 2 cups of 1% milk and drinks that after a long day at the practice field.
I trust Ascent with my family and it has helped me recover quickly also.
Answer: Yes; I would sleep at least 8 hours, drink plenty of water and also roll out your body.
I like to use a massage ball to work on tough areas to help increase blood flow and restore the body. The WodNation Massage Ball set is a good one to try out.
Question: Where can I find out more info about enlisting in the Navy to become a Frogman?
Answer: I would talk to a Navy SEAL recruiter/motivator first.
Use a google search for your local area to find one.
He can answer a lot of your questions about recruiting and hopefully get you in the pool to do some swim workouts.
