OK my first suggestion is gonna be to eat more and get plenty of rest.

My second will be to do some kind of speed work(if you are a bencher)

And my last and best advice will to be to get a recovery supplement.

ETS from At Large is great in that it helps you recover very well. i did a ton of reps a few weeks ago, thinking I'd be sore as sh-it the next day. I took my ETS from At Large and felt great no soreness at all. Ok just to give you the rep scheme here so you know how much work:

225 for 50
245 for 40
265 for 30

That is a ton of reps, and I had no soreness what so ever and the CNS was ready for more damage the next day!!!!

Those were done to help the shoulder, I never ever bench like that but my shoulder has been killing me so I did some light rep stuff. And I did the 225 for 50 back earlier this yr after Larry Allen from the Cowboys did it for like 47 just to show the Dumbasses at my home gym that I could do more. i was still going strong at 50, could of done alot more.

No offense wolf but your a freak....
im just lookin for something that can help me out for those few uneasy hours of a workout, i burn myself out and feel like throwing up my face hurts and i can hardly see strait. ( Dont want advice on workout but a post workout meal or supplement, I love the feeling of strain)

Get a good meal in ya high in protein or a protein drink and get sometihng to help with your recovery. I know you said you did not want training advice but take a look at your volume also, you may be overtrained. You did say a few uneasy hours of a workout, a few hours is alot of time. Just trying to help.

Assuming you are eating, sleep is the key.

One method is to ingest a protein.carbhydrate drink during your workout and immediately after, if you not now doing it. This enhances recovery.

Nutrient Timing/Ivy is a book that provides some good information on it.

ETS sounds like a good supplement you might want to try in addtion to a good diet and lots of sleep. You might also want to try incorporating a strecthing routine to keep things fresh.

Eating a banana mid workout has really helped me push through, think its the high carbs
