The Eagles' strength and conditioning coach is a big advocate of P90X. He talked to Tony after yesterday's season opener, after the Eagles laid a can of whoop-ass on the Rams.
Just got off the phone with Rick B. He gave half the team our recovery formula at half time. The Rams were bonking and the Eagles who drank our stuff were charging like madmen in the heat. McNabb threw for over 300 yards and Rick is convinced that he's been using the X (He won't admit to it) because he's never been this lean coming into the season. Rick told me point blank that P90X played a roll in this win today. Is that crazy or what???
Here's an article on why Recovery Formula works.
Here are Akers' stats from yesterday.
