Muscle Recovery

So, I've been stepping up my work outs recently and I've been remaining sore for a lot longer then I use too.

My diet is fairly well balanced, but the past few weeks I've had too much soda, I've eliminated that.

Outside of the soda, can anyone recommend any foods, supplements, exercise or other( like a hot bath, idk) that helps speed up recovery time?


*If this helps, I don't really feel "sore" but when I go to do anything, I just can't do a lot.

as usual Glutamine, Protein... CLA supposedly helps recovery, didn't try it myself yet though. Also, look into MM USA products it's great.

watched Wanderlei's All Access recently - the guy spends 2 minutes in ice cold water and hits the hot shower - right after training, says it helps to recover.

Glutamine, High Protein, Potassium, Sleep, Time


CLA is a healthy fat that helps burn fat, it's not a recovery agent


Also get some free form Amino Acids


And also if you're "stepping up your workouts" and increasing the intensity you're likey to become a lot more sore the following day.

Soreness is just an indication that your muscles have been stressed and your body cannot recover quick enough. Just keep the protein intake high and get some potassium

Eat more and sleep more. Also focus on stretching after you work out and you should have 1 or 2 "active recovery" days where you go do something physical but not demanding at all. Some suggestions would be jump rope rounds, a jog on the treadmill, BW squats, etc.

Off topic, but I've been considering a fat burner? Not really necessary (blind estimate im between 10-13%) but for extra help or, are they not worth it?
Otherwise, thanks for the advice.

I don't think fat burners are worth it... they are kinda unhealthy and make you feel weird. They also **** w/ your appetite and proper nutrition is by far the most important part about weight loss/weight gain.

Just a comment on fat burners, in wrestling season when I had to make a pretty big cut I took one, and my stomach was torn apart. I mean like not eating all day, that sort of feeling, so I wouldnt. But I know people that have used them and don't get the same thing.

this is what i meant by CLA CLA NULIFE
It's Anti-catabolic which means it does help, catabolic is opposite of anabolic which is "processes that tend toward "building up" organs and tissues."

I think I'll pass up fat burners, and just eat more potassium (which I don't know if I'm getting any of), cut out caffeine and sugar, and what's the final verdict on glutamine? worth it, yay or nay?
