Hi, I'm a 25 year old amateur soccer player in the UK (to near semi-pro level), while I'm also very much into lifting and nutrition. I'm seeking advice regarding recovery from intense soccer training, which consists of a 90 minute session, twice per week.
My problem is not concerned with glycogen recovery, but more to do with subtle cold like symtoms the next day and generally feeling tired. I'm currently performing two weights sessions per week in addition to soccer training, which seems sufficient for me to maintain my strength and mass built up in the close season.
My body feels great after weight training, but I don't feel like this after really intense soccer training, and the following day. Physically I have a sprinters physique, so I'm build for speed and power, not ideal for long distance work.
From the symtoms I have, I'm guessing that the cardio is surpressing my immune system (and possibly T Levels and my CNS?).
Any advice concerning why I'm feeling like this following training, plus any nutritional and supplement advice would be much appreciated.
I currently supplement with Low-Carb Grow!, Vit C, Flax, Fish Oil.
