    recovery drink or suggestion


    Hi.
    I train for around 90 minutes in gym. But my body recovery is so slow that i am unable to do any exercise the next day. I then train only after 48 hours since i last trained. My muscles are sore and i become lazy.

    Please suggest some recovery drink or any other suggestion for this.

    Are you getting enough protein from your diet?

    Can be a lot of things. Diet may need improving, you may simply need to dial back your workouts and progress more slowly into longer workouts to allow your body to adjust.

    Lately I've been doing 3 eggs, 3 pieces of bacon, 2 slices of wheat, and about 16oz of milk. Recovery has been pretty good

    Are you bulking/cutting? Is convenience a factor?

    Are those "2 scoops" basically your only protein intake? My guess is you might need to take a look at your overall diet as it could be effecting your recovery. How much do you weigh and what do you typically eat?

    Well it can be a lot of factors. You could just be sleeping bad and need something like zma to help out. Magnesium has a nice calming effect in deficient people(iirc around half the population).

    It could also be that you don't get enough protein, or eat enough in general. BCAA supplementation can help out here. I use them for large breaks between meals and fasted training.

    You may also not be using enough rest days.

    My advice is check out your diet, workout, and sleep and start tweaking from there.

    Hi everyone.

    Following ur advice carefully. Getting my diet checked from my trainer.

    I rest 2-3 days a week.

    Soreness exists, so I am looking for recovery drink too. I have seen earlier suggestion on that and might try it.

    Thanks.

    Foam Rolling +1

    This was an absolute godsend for me. Typically done before my workouts. It's like a deep tissue massage you perform by yourself to find the "hotspots" or tweaks. After doing this for about 2 weeks preworkout I stopped and have only been doing it as I feel necessary if certain sorenesses creep up or I need some help after a strenuous routine.

    like others have said....can be a multitude of things. You might be overtraining....doing the incorrect rep scheme/tempo....not enough fluids intraworkout. I would definitely add leucine pre/intra/post workout. Make sure you are getting adequate protein + leucine PWO

    How long have you been training? Soreness will be especially noticable if you've only been on a particular program a short time. You will adapt to your program and then the soreness will be much more tolerable. I usually take this as my cue to switch things up though.

    Yes, u are right. Soreness is becoming tolerable now. What do u mean by "I usually take this as my cue to switch things up though."?

    Should I change my routine, its only a month now?
