    Post-training Checklist

    43:53

    You've come up with a pre-training checklist, and followed it to the dot during practice. Now, what do you do after practice? Should you just kick back and relax?

Again, this is especially more important for hobbyists with limited training time. In this episode, Shintaro and Peter discuss what is on their post-training checklist.
