    What does that put you for total sleep? Do you change your sleep pattern based on a certain days fitness activity?

    I make sure to have at least a gallon and a half of water each day and over the last year or so, I've really prioritized getting extra sleep each night. I went from getting between 6-7 hours each night to now shooting for 8-9, and I have to say, the difference with sleep alone has been significant.

    Hydration - and electrolytes, of all things, sodium (it surprised me when the doc said my levels were low!). I try for 8 hours of sleep, but the older I get, the less that seems to happen!

    i suck at hydrating. I pee a lot so I avoid water! I've been searching for some sort of balance and forcing myself to hydrate more.

    For me DIET and HYDRATION are and have been throughout my many years of training the key to being
    fully recovered from tough workouts to be able to bounce back and hit it hard in the gym. Just planing
    your well balanced meals so that your getting the right amount of protein,fats,carbs,and fiber from your
    diet and really making an effort to consume ample amounts of water throughout the day will make a HUGE
    difference in your recovery AND your energy levels throughout the day so that you don't have to rely on
    caffeine anytime during the day for energy. I personally ONLY use caffeine stimulant based pre's just for my
    early a.m. workouts where I find that it really helps since I don't always get the recommended 8hrs of sleep
    cause I work two jobs mainly on the weekends.

    Without a doubt, the best thing I've done lately is make sure that I am getting enough sleep, and that it is quality sleep. I used to cut myself short and would just deal with being tired. But now that I prioritize a good 8+ hours of sleep per night, my body feels so much better when I wake up. And since I train first thing in the morning, it's made a huge difference in the amount of energy I can put into my workouts.

    Recovery?

    As crazy as it sounds, biking.

    I run and lift a lot, so a nice 20 miler on the weekend really helps limber me up and gives me time to mentally decompress. It's low impact, easy aerobic exercise. I also allow myself to sleep in 1 day a week on the weekends. Im up by 5:30 every day during the week, so a nice extra 4 hours of sleep on the weekends really is a treat.

    I stretch at home while watching TV at night, drink crazy amounts of water, and walk my dog every time after a workout day. Also, a little indica helps when needed 😂👍and ensures I sleep solid at night. But that's just me. I'm still trying to convince my wife that nightly massages are the way to go....

    I had to reduce my weight training days and make it cardio only for a few days. That, coupled with stretching daily, proper sleep and nutrition have helped.

    Some tricks I've tried for recovery days (which happens every day!) that seem to work for me--

    1. Hydrate all day, not just when you are working out.
    2. Casein (30-40g) approximately 30 minutes before bed
    3. Melatonin (I take 3g normally, 6g if not tired) to ensure I fall asleep quickly and can stay asleep
    4. Black out blinds and cool temperature in my room
    5. 10-15 minute no electronics before I go to bed
    6. Foam rolling the actual day of recovery
    7. Longer walks with the dog to keep my body and brain active
    8. Research/read more articles and studies to help me take my passion into the next day. I can never know enough and I am constantly finding tidbits of info that will help my recovery, nutrition, or workouts.


    A bit of a long list... but the first things that came to mind when I think of my recovery! Cheers!

    I run and lift a lot, so a nice 20 miler on the weekend really helps limber me up and gives me time to mentally decompress. It's low impact, easy aerobic exercise. I also allow myself to sleep in 1 day a week on the weekends. Im up by 5:30 every day during the week, so a nice extra 4 hours of sleep on the weekends really is a treat.
    Doesn't sound crazy at all and I can see how a good bike ride could definitely help with recovery and as
    you mentioned it's low impact so it doesn't tax your joints or tendons and just keeps that blood flowing
    to help with recovery

    3. Melatonin (I take 3g normally, 6g if not tired) to ensure I fall asleep quickly and can stay asleep
    4. Black out blinds and cool temperature in my room
    5. 10-15 minute no electronics before I go to bed
    6. Foam rolling the actual day of recovery
    7. Longer walks with the dog to keep my body and brain active
    8. Research/read more articles and studies to help me take my passion into the next day. I can never know enough and I am constantly finding tidbits of info that will help my recovery, nutrition, or workouts.


    A bit of a long list... but the first things that came to mind when I think of my recovery! Cheers!
    Love this list!!! Some really great things I could add to my routine based upon this.

    Casein definitely helped me out as well, back when I took it.

    Hydrate and foam roller. Also trying to stretch at night and in the morning. Seems to work pretty well.

    It’s a mind game for me with lowering weight training days for recovery, but it does work
