Should i buy some skins

What recovery methods are you already using? I do ice baths immediately following training and contrast showers, and I didn't see much added benefit from wearing Skins too. I'm sure it would probably help someone if they weren't already hitting the hydrotherapy.

Yes, if you Crossfit
No, if you train hard, eat real food, and use common sense.

I bought some of the forearm skins to see if they would help my arms recovery in between my workouts ( I do a lot of gymnastic static holds). So far I have only use them a handful of times. Were they worth the cost? hmm...I'm not completley sold. The most use I have got out of em is keeping my arms warm when the gym is a little colder. Some ppl I know swear by the leg gear. Freddy C at Crossfit one world swears by the leg gear.
