Maximizing recovery in competition prep
I have done two meets in two weeks (well, the second was more testing my snatch max over and over again), and will be doing another one a weekend from this one. My body and mind may not take much more of this, but skipping the meet is not an option (last-ditch to qualify for Nationals).
Any tips for maximizing my recovery before this meet, and not just keeping my body together but hopefully putting on a good show?
This is what I know already:
- Ice bath
- ZMA/Vitamin B/Hemaplex (normal vitamin regimen)
I'm planning on maintaining my current magnesium intake (two tablespoons of Natural Calm) and upping my fish oil intake to the recommended intake of the Robb Wolf fish oil calculator (normally taking this much is not affordable) using the "1.0" factor (though damn, 5 tablespoons of fish oil is going to be a lot).
I would like to include "eat the hell out of everything" on the list but I need to stay in my weight class.
What else should I be doing?
