Toolkit: Recovery Assessment Through Grip and Carbon Dioxide Discard Test

Andrew Huberman talks about the importance of using a grip test and a carbon dioxide test as a way to assess recovery after a workout or injury. He explains that by measuring grip strength, you can get an idea of the overall health of your neuromuscular system, as grip strength is a good indicator of muscle and nerve function. Additionally, he suggests using a carbon dioxide test to assess the body's ability to recover from physical stress by measuring the levels of carbon dioxide in the blood. By using these two simple tests together, Huberman believes that individuals can get a more comprehensive understanding of their recovery status and make adjustments to their training or rehabilitation accordingly.
