View Full Version : Intensive exercise the day after working out?

Is this advisable?

I've taken up Muay Thai kickboxing, and the first half an hour or so generally involves things like sprinting, pressups, squat thrusts, etc. Would it affect recovery/growth if I was doing pressups the day after working out my chest (or squat thrusts the day after my legs). I normally train till failure so my muscles are generally sore for a few days afterwords.

edit: argh sorry, I've posted this in the wrong forum and there doesnt seem to be a 'delete post' option. Could someone move it to Bodybuilding/fitness please?

It might hurt recovery a bit, but if you're still making gains and feel fine, I wouldn't worry about it too much.
