I have a problem. Spring has hit and I found my self slacking in the gym because of all the sports. I played Tennis on Wednesday, Hockey on Friday and found myself to be sore for like 4 days after that. So in those 4 days I didn't hit the gym. Now I finally worked out Monday and I'm sore from the workout, which makes me want to avoid Tennis and Golf for the next 3 or 4 days.

How do you guys balance a lifting routine with sports? Does playing a high intensity sport the next day after a workout ruin your recovery?
