Practicing breakdancing every day for a while now, I’ve been noticing that my progress has started to stall. I get tired more quickly than I would like to during practice sessions, keeping me from putting in enough work and volume on power moves as I would like, especially since I genuinely enjoy practice as a break from college/homework/etc.
Just today I did a carb-up; loaded up on high-carb “junk” dining hall food like doughnuts, chocolate milk, w/e, also getting at least the usual amount of protein and fat, and today was the best in the past week for the move that I practiced.
I would like to continue doing this; I really would enjoy it if I knew that to improve my breakdancing performance all I had to do was eat more doughnuts and shit like that. But my understanding is also that I could get resistant to the positive effect if I do it every day and need more and more.
I’m torn between one side, saying my breakdancing performance depends on my nervous system and I need to sleep and chill out more, which makes sense because college is more stressful than high school, and definitely more so than summer vacation I just came off of. But at the same time, between mill>headspin sets, 1990s, flares, hollowbacks, almost every move I do my shoulder muscles are critical and if they’re getting overworked without enough food to feed them then I’m just shortchanging myself.
So basically, I want to practice badass breakdancing power moves all night and give no shits, and maybe even getting a decisive improvement in lifting numbers wouldn’t be so bad either. For details, you can look at my log here:
I do a pretty solid job of logging details of sessions if I may say so myself.
Any help is much appreciated, thanks!
