Recovery

  1. Recovery


    what are your guys thoughts on the best methods for muscle recovery??? other than sleep! and protein! maybe BCAA's or just str8 L-glutamine ? or maybe something i've never heard of?


  2. carbs, forget glutamine. i also do simple stretches

  3. not trying to eat carbs im trying to cut up. stretching helps you out a lot foreal?

  4. it helps a little to relieve the tightness, our gf-ama works great for recovery and helps to shed some additional weight but high carbs work for me, ecspecially with a gda

    who is our and what is gf-ama????

  6. i would do a 1 2 combo and try iForce lights out at bedtime, and iforce compete for a pre/intra combo, check out the logs some people's endurance are through the roof from compete.

  7. LCLT, Citrulline Malate, beta-alanine, and sleep aids (by virtue of improved sleep) all promote recovery with data backing them.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

  8. Deep tissue massage by a hot babe.

    and yo nolvadren xt is a pct??? and if it is ? how is it compared to nolvadex or clomid. ?? im finishing up a sd/test prop stack and need agood pctto keep gains

  15. Light cardio after heavy lift days really helps. Stretching should be mandatory. Don't be like me and neglect it for years on end and then struggle to touch your toes (I used to be able to jump into the splits and kick box).

    BCAA's have probably had the most notable impact on recovery...or at least DOMS, for me. I never saw the point of them as I always have a preWO and postWO shake, but after trying several samples I am sold. If I time the dose right, I can go heavy and not even have DOMS whereas before they were severe and would last for 3-5 days.

    yo my dude im new to the forums but what does 'DOMS' mean???

  17. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.

    Basically feeling sore as hell after lifting. Typically is at its worst 48 hours after lifting.

    More power to you bro. thanks for the advice

  21. Foam rolling, preceded by a hot bath. works for me. The heat warms me up and make me "plyable" for rolling. I rarely get DOMs, but have some issues with my hips and sciatic nerve, frequent foam rolling fixes me right up. I do some front and side hip swings after for a couple minutes.

    Oh, and deload every 4-8 weeks (depending on how heavy you lift) for a week.
