Al Horford is poised for a big season, his first with the 76ers. Being physically and mentally ready each time you step on the court is vital, and a big part of that is how an athlete recovers. We caught up with Al for some insight into his own recovery routine, and how he is preparing his body for a long season and deep playoff run.
Q: How did you learn about PR Lotion and what was the ah-ha moment when you knew it needed to be part of your routine?
A: While speaking with my trainer about ways to enhance my recovery speed, PR lotion was brought up as an option. After trying it out the first time following back-to-back games, I knew it needed to be implemented into my daily recovery routine.
“When I recover faster, I am able to perform better both on and off the court. Speeding up my recovery process gives me the time to be more present. It is about improving my game as well as taking care of my body. Recovering quickly enables a life I love on and off the court.”
Q: What does it do for you as an athlete?
A: PR Lotion allows me to show up both physically and mentally ready before every practice and game. Without the fatigue, aches and soreness, I’m more prepared for the next game.
Q: What general tips and tricks do you rely on to recover after a hard game or workout?
A: I am a big believer in taking care of my body immediately after my workout or game. I have also utilized PR lotion in my post game massages.
Q: Do you have a recovery routine? If so, what is it? How is Amp Human a part of that?
A: I think about recovery before my game or workout even begins. I use PR Lotion in both my pre-game and post-game routines. The first thing I think about as I walk off the court is how I am going to help my body recover the fastest. I pride myself on my body, and being able play a full NBA season and go deep into the playoffs.
This product is phenomenal! Truly is a game changer. Used it recently for my 12+ Hour Spartan Endurance Race that required me running over 30 miles, climbing up mountains, and doing over 65 obstacle courses. Amp Human was critical in me finishing this race! Will continue using it and telling others about it
I am consistently surprised by how well this stuff works. I use it for all my long rides and am much less sore the following day than I expect to be.
I used this for the first time during a half marathon and absolutely loved it! I had almost no pain in my legs, WAY less than normal, and I was able to run longer because of it. Highly recommend this!
I’ve been so happy with PR Lotion. I can push through hard intervals and race with confidence that I do t have to overreach and burn out early. There are plenty other products that make claims, but PR Lotion has the research and results.
I love this stuff. My legs don't cramp, they aren't sore afterwards, and it's become a pivotal part of my pre-race routine.
I have been using the lotion mainly for my lactic threshold sessions. I get through the workouts with less pain and find that I am able to recover for the next day. The biggest plus is not feeling so much of the burning sensation in my hamstrings as much after high intensity interval runs.
The first two times I used PR lotion, I won two UCI cyclocross races! Of course, it's become a staple part of my training and racing routine since then. Recently, I competed in 4 events at Sea Otter in 3 days - using PR lotion before and after each one. I won the final event and was amazed how well my legs held up for all of the efforts.
