Training After an Injury
After fracturing my patella at the beginning of the year I’m finally back training 100% and hitting pb’s once again!
Do I still feel pain? Well now not half as much as I did!
One of the bonuses of being a Games athlete is people like to give you things to try for free. I was lucky enough to be given a trial of GLC2000.
At the time I was taking anything and everything that promised to help my joints but I agreed to give GLC2000 a fair try and stopped taking the others.
It’s only been just over a month since I started taking it and I couldn’t be more happier with the results!
The past month I’ve competed in the CrossFit Invitational and The Pantheon Games in Miami. These both tested my knee out under the added pressure of being in a competition scenario. The good news is my knee held up and I didn’t experience any adverse pain!
I’m not saying GLC2000 is a miracle cure but it has allowed me to up my training and get back to competing again! Now along with my PurePharma I’ll always carry a tub of GLC2000!
