DT and BTB both agreed with the notion that it will strengthen me (CNS especially) thus allowing me to handle heavier loads RAW, but I still needed to remember to work my RAW training to not only be healthy in the long run, but to correct any imbalances. Fazc, I think the missing link between GEAR and RAW is really imbalances that arise...Anyone care to chime in on that thought please do!
Just the kind of thing I need to hear. That's awesome Mr. SB thanks for your insight!
