Exercise Recovery Questions
So, I composed this long detailed post last week and apparently the Gods of Paleohacks thought it was too long and decided to not approve it. So, let me make this short and sweet. I have a 6 year love affair with exercise. I have done many things... (more)
So, here's the thing. I am an avid, some would say extreme, exerciser. I am just one of those people that find something they like and then do the shit out of it. So, like 6 years ago I started working out on a daily basis (before that I did a lot... (more)
Hi there. I just did by first high intensity strength train this week (yesterday). And I have learnt the recovery (at least this time), is harder than the work out (which is relatively short even if commited). Weak arms, muscle aches etc. I... (more)
Hi guys, I've been VLC paleo for the last month or so, feeling the benefits, nothing extraordinarily unusual. Took a long hike up a steep mountain (8 hours round trip) on the weekend and didn't eat much during the hike (grapefruit, cup of... (more)
After intense, fast, and heavy weight training, I find myself very spent. When I was eating a diet high in carbohydrates it was very evident that I indeed had more energy. I have found that coconut water is a big help in my feeling better, and not... (more)
Hi everyone, so glad I found this site! I'm a new paleo convert, after being vegan for about 6 years. It's been a great transition, and I feel so much better overall now, after about three weeks. I'm not going to get into the specifics of my... (more)
I think a lot of the exercise you do is relatively modest in intensity, compared to say crossfit or heavy lifting. You definitely need one or two rest days per week (I personally would count yoga as a rest day unless you're doing serious Iyengar... (more)
I love mountain biking. The last two weekends I have been out on my bike, for about four hours (with a few breaks) each time. It's quite intense exercise, but I feel capable and fine at the time. Afterwards, I get very hungry and eat a... (more)
It's always hilarious to wrap an ems band around a someone's arm, put it up to maximum power, and then shock them into punching themselves in the face. If you bleed enough, then it's great for depleting your iron levels.
Hi guys, So I'm fairly new to the idea of IF so I thought I would ask a few questions regarding exercise and what will give me the best results. Yesterday I did a 24 hour fast and felt great and ate a large Paleo dinner as usual. I would like to... (more)
As for working out while doing IF, just do your workouts near the end of your fast so you can eat afterwards. I see no need for BCAA during the day to protect from muscle wasting. The body doesn't naturally want to catabolize muscle unless there... (more)
So I am trying out IF a bit here...I have been studying primal/paleo for months... I ate my last meal last night at 8:30pm. I taught a spin class and did some weights at the gym this morning. I have not eaten yet...except for decaf coffee this... (more)
