Not recovering quickly enough

  1. Not recovering quickly enough


    Hi

    not sure where this goes but hope you guys can help.

    I dont know what im doing wrong but i always feel like s**t about 3 hours after the gym.

    In that time ive had some "qick carbs" whey protein and Biorythm afterglow.which has been taken within 30 mins afterr exercise.

    About 1 to 1 .30 min later , i have sweet potatoes , fish and veggies with some extra virgin olive oil and some minerals as suppllements.

    Its after that , that i feel lethargic , and the carbs has failed to provide energy.

    So just how do you recover quickly ? or do you ?


    Thanks


  2. Stop eating carbs after your workout. Then re-assess. Your question is very open-ended though. There could be hundreds of reasons why you feel that way.

    What this man said^.

    It can be low testosterone, sugar crash, sleep patterns, dopamine/seratonin/ cortisol levels, medication you are on, supplements, etc. Etc

    i mix it up quite abit depending when i train , some weeks its 4 days , others 3 ;When its 4 , chest day 1 back day 2 , legs /shoulders day3 abs triceps biceps day 4

    3 day -chest/back day1` legs day 2 , abs , shoulders day 3 -bi s and tri are left because they are brought into play to some extent doing upper body .

  6. for starters, why you mixing carbs and fat as your post workout anyway?

    within 30mins, BCAA's are adequate til the proper post meal can be had. You "dont need to" have carbs post either as other above said.
    You may be having a sugar hit, spiking insulin to early and its drops below baseline give you the hyper to hypo effect.

    take out and re-assess. give it a week and see what happens. Be very surprised if the "low to no carb route" post w/o doesn't fix this issue.

    thanks i will .when is the best time to take in the good fats -away from any meal?


    BCAA s 10-20gms?

    Pre workout -having something like oats or sweetpotatoe a better option about 60mins before or earlier?

  8. yeah try a good test booster + get some aminos in post workout

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you didn't put in.

  9. like others have said it could be many things. and do NOT take any test boosters at this point unless prescribed by a doctor. and amino acids are nothing but protein which you can get from food.

    for now keep it simple. stop taking any supplements. remember, supplements add to what you are doing, so if what you are doing sucks then you are only adding more suck.

    also, what time are working out? what are you doing after the workout?
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.
