It is the first case to align the shin and knee normally. We are trying to restart the conversation between the brain and the foot, increase my blood flow and accelerate the recovery. That leads my body to think that I am doing maximum weight sets, without excessive load on my recovering leg. I also sweated for the first time in my upper body since my last fight. “ wrote the former champion.
