The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    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.

    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.
