Looking to get back to training, mainly for fitness and getting back to playing rugby. But after that i'd like to build up a lot of muscle and strength.
My main issue is that i've always taken absolutely AGES to recover from work outs. Particularly legs!
I recently did a free taster training session with a persona trainer. All bodyweight stuff. Did loads of squats (all ass to grass) and some lunges and it took about 6-7 days for my legs to recover.
I got my test levels tested about a year ago and it came out at the very low end of normal.
I still feel young and look a lot younger than I am (occassionally get ID'ed still), but any exercise seems to ruin me.
I know my diet is pretty poor, but any time I try and get back to training, the endless days of debilitating DOMS ruins things for me and stops me keeping going. My girlfriend is convinced I have chronic fatigue syndrome (she'd know, as she has it).
Now at 37 years old, I want to have a go at getting back to training and playing rugby, before its too late for me!
Essentially I need all the info I can in terms of speeding up recovery. That includes anything nutrition related, supplements and stretching/exercising/lifestyle etc.
Any information people can give me, or direct me towards would be hugely appreciated!
