In Response To: Athletic Recovery (Thomas Seay)
Maybe you're overtraining! I've been having success
by working each body part intensely just once a week.
That's just 3 days of lifting a week. I cycle sets
and exercises. I do just enough cardio to keep the body
fat in check (209 lbs. at 7% bodyfat).
I eat 5-6 high protein meals with lots of vege carbo's.
I do use a product called The Ultimate Meal after workouts.
It seems to be clean for O types and a lot more healthy than
some of the stuff on the market.
I try to get at least 8 hours of sleep.
I've stopped taking any supplements, including vitamins. I do
use kelp, however every other day to keep the ole'
thyroid pumping. When I stopped the creatine, I lost 5 lbs of water, and
I don't think it helped my recovery any. I did feel pumped up
all the time (cells were holding extra water).
So I am recovering better now. Since being on the O
diet, I've lost 12lbs. and 4% bodyfat. If fact I've been holding
steady at 7%, but have managed to put on about 4 lbs in the last
6 weeks. So something must be working.
P.S. Have you tried eating some of your meat raw?
I've been doing sushi at lunch and my energy levels have never
been greater. I had 2 new p.r.'s at the gym last week.
Check out my post on the O board.
