Audio Issues

Actual information is informative and helpful.
Although the three stars is a result of listening to several and static or feedback is in the audio. It’s distorted enough that it makes hearing the content more difficult and not enjoyable. *If it’s on my end some help would be appreciated and I can change review 👍🏼

First of all thank you for keeping the gymnastic community informed.
You are doing an amazing job, my family and I really appreciate all the information that you have provided. Please keep doing it. We need this badly, you are educating us and helping our gymnast to be successful and that is PRICELESS!

I heard the podcast interview with Dr. Sanders and it was awesome, very very informative.
And one thing I would like to ask your recommendation on is the compression methods for fast recovery. In your notes you put the link for the compression clothes call SKIN. If I get some for my daughter ( 14 yrs old ) level 8 / 24 hours of training per week,
When is it best for her to wear them and how long?

Thanks again for everything you do.
