Weightlifting and heavy bag work?

I have been weight lifting on mon-wed-fri and doing heavy bag hitting/training on Tues, Thurs, and Saturday for the last couple months.

I noticed lately that the days when I work out longer on the heavy bag I seem to be still sore the next day when it comes time to lift again and have some pain when adding heavy weights. Especially in my shoulders.

The thing is, back in 2000 I followed this same training regime and it worked great for me. But then I was also on alot of supplements which I cannot take now.

I have tried waiting 2 days between workouts but that worked out horrible and I started losing strength instead of gaining.

Anyone have any advice on this? Thanks in advance.

why can you not take supplements? cause glutamine will help your muscles recover faster...

Well back in 2000 or so when I was making significant progress I started having anxiety/panic attacks as a side effect of some of the supplements I was on (I dont know which one).

At the time I was taking creatine, glutamine, androstat, and a couple more I dont even remember, but they were all pretty mild and available over the counter and none of them except the androstat had any warnings for such side effects. Also I didnt take any more then the recommended doses or anything like that and I followed the labels.

Prior to taking supplements I never had any problems with anxiety or anything my whole life and as soon as I stopped the supplements the anxiety attacks went away and havent come back. My doc encouraged me to quit taking all that stuff and we dont really know which supplement it was that I didnt agree with.

My doc thinks I either have an existing condition that some of the supplements make worse, or I am one of the few people who have side effects on the stuff. So I would prefer not to take anything.

I do take whey protein but thats it and of course thats not really a supplement anyway.

So do you recommend glutamine even with my history? I think part of my problem from before was I did too much all at one time. Maybe if I started slower this time I would have more luck with supplements.

I think you should keep taking whey protein, but add some glutamine or creatine into your shopping list...from what I've read, it isn't too harmful. You should take small dosages though, just to be safe. If nothing happens, just increase your dosage after a while.
Bodybuilding.com - Glutamine Information and Product Listing! Glutamine FAQ!

I'm not a doctor though, so consult with your doctor and find out if it's safe to experiment with those supplements. (I think you experienced those side effects because you took too many supplements, lol).

Good luck.

It's not a good idea to work out so much, in my opinion. Your body won't have as much time to recover and can cause injury. But, I'm not a doctor. =)

Also, stretch out good before AND after your workouts.
