I did a heap of eccentric training over the last two weeks and it seems I have just gotten weaker and weaker :S
My mate told me that I have over-used my nerve system and my brain needs recovery. Is there any specific ‘brain foods’ or recovery methods after having done something like this?
10x2 eccentric one-arm pull ups
12x2 eccentric hip-flexor raises
- eccentric hand-gripping
on top of my normal Rippetoes program
I’m surprised this would burn me out, but as a beginner I guess it would effect me a lot more.
I don’t feel I want to go the the gym today, and I kind of feel like I’m dependent on coffee. I have had enough sleep, but my good fats intake count is a bit low because I haven’t been eating right the last few days. My carbs and protein intake are normal. So other than that I cant think more what to say.
What to do, other than stop doing eccentrics and go back to my normal program? How long will this brain-rape last?
