What Can You Do If You Have Over Trained Or Feel Absolutely Stiff And
It Is Time To Train Again??

♦ Take a hot relaxing bath with Epsom salts and baking soda added to the water.
Be careful not to add salts that are binded with aluminum.

♦ Do some extra stretching as well as some light limbering exercise like Tai-Chi or
Yoga.

♦ Get a massage.

♦ Make sure to drink lots of clean water.

♦ Try taking an intermittent hot/cold shower alternating the hot and then cold water
for thirty second durations.

♦ Do a twenty five minute session of light cardio to work up a sweat and limber
yourself up. This is one time when I recommend a little bit of cardio but be careful
not to overdo the intensity. Walking at a brisk pace is fine.

I have tried the hot bath, but found it not to do much other than get on my nerves (i cannot just lay there without getting really bored). A friend of mine, while training up for a fight, used ice baths. I cannot imagine they were the nicest baths in the world but he never ached the next day and he was able to push himself beyond his limits for weeks on end! Madness!

Although i am used to cold water...ice baths...maybe not. lol.
