    In my worthless opinion......if you need "recovery" you are doing it wrong. Guys think they need to shred themselves and then recover, they are totally missing the entire point. If you can do 10 push-ups without pain, do 10 every day until you can do 11.

    Joe Rogan has a great podcast on this subject, it's about volume. I have run over 1,000 miles at over 8 mph this year and I would not even consider doing a marathon, even though I have done them before.

    Good luck buddy.

    I don't think this is the issue considering the OP, but on this thread I'll still throw it out for other readers. (Hope this is ok)

    Physical fitness is always extremely helpful but mental Toughness is key. Before you pull the trigger always have a plan to get an animal out. Before you go into an area always have a plan to get an animal out. Before you decide to hunt an are have a plan to get yourself and an animal out. Basically always have a plan. Situations are less complicated when they are pre-planned instead of improvised. Yes I'm speaking from experience.

    agreed, I'm not sure it's me, I don't think it's add, but thinking about every possible situation I tend to... and then something will happen in the news etc... and people will say who would have thought about that happening? or you're never prepared for that situation, and I think... well you should be! of course stuff does happen, but being ready certainly can only help!

    Seems like it all depends what the goals are. Lose weight, then put on muscle, haul elk size loads, hunt from a quad and only go to a stand 100 yards away......etc etc. Regardless of the hunting style......recovering like a pro athlete won't hurt anyone and 9 times out of 10 help. We as sportsman can learn a lot from sportsmedicine and recovery techniques. When I started to add a more detailed post workout plan tailored to my needs.....I got increased measurable returns.

    Of course the pre/post workout drinks can help. However, be very wary of which you choose as many are simply loaded with sugar. You have to pay for the good stuff. When I competed, I drank them, now I do not. Eating healthy and getting enough sleep and water intake will cure 75% of your issues after you get through your initial body "break-in period" of exercising.
    Thanks BC for the sugar reminder. Totally forgot about that and that's the first thing I look at. Also thanks for the baked potato comment/potassium plug. I got away from that just because I can't get them at work. Need to figure out how to insert them back. Thanks again.
