    You are showing prolonged elevated stress levels. No anaerobic training is recommended. Instead, do steady state cardio (walk, bike, etc) with your heart rate between 120 and 130 beats per minute.
    Also, tiredness has been high. Try to take a nap today.
    Soreness seems elevated. Perform some restoration work for the affected muscles.

  3. 5/12/14 Sport Form (w/sumo DLs & super stressed) 295/120/270 @148

    Meh, considering I'm in the middle of finals, little sleep, and cut I suppose I can't complain too much. Squat up from last SF, and I didn't even eat everything like I did last time, lol. I think I have decided that I'm definitely stronger with conventional than sumo dl (15 lb less), and after I finish this diagnostic week to do own RPE chart, I'll be running conventionals as competition lift for sure.

    Surprisingly not all that gimpy today, though the last few days was quite tortuous ...

    While general good nutrition, sleep, training, etc play the most important part of recovery, I do think some supplements can be helpful to....supplement the above when everything is spot-on. Of course fish oil, creatine, and beta alanine have great studies backing up their benefits to health and performance. I also take a multi, glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM, have dabbled in cissus which didn't show much additional benefit to me, and also played with nootropics (piracetam, choline source, prami/oxi/etc ...

    Either recovery cardio paid off or I show a delay on TRAC. Fatigue finally dropped a hair today and nice recovery spike, yay!
