Just a few days ago I got a recommendation for injury recovery (fish oils), which I realised I hadn’t taken for a week!!
Could we build a checklist of things a bodybuilder can cross-reference against what he’s doing now to ensure he is doing/taking adequately for prevention + healing?
I propose a structure as follows, very loose but a starting skeleton:
Basic Action - Rest/Ice/Compression/Elevation, avoidance or minimisation of aggravating activities;
Intermediate Action - Working around injury/
Advanced Action - Rehabilitative movements inc weights/stretches;
Basic intake - Protein/VitaminC/EPA+DHA;
Intermediate intake - Calcium+Magnesium;
Advanced intake - Cortisone/NSAIDS.
