I just embarked did Chad Waterbury's 3 day a Week hypertrophy program (where I exercise the entire body in one session). That was one tough workout! I was in okay shape but was not used to lifting 45+ minutes straight. And that leads to a few q?s:
My whole body is sore which is a good thing. I know Chad recommends waiting 48 hours between workouts. I lifted Sunday morning so that means my next workout would be tomorrow morning. But here?s my first question: what if I am quite sore tomorrow morning? How do I know when I?m ready to do another one of these killer (for me at least) workouts? (I don?t want to burn out or go catabolic?I?m a middle aged guy with two kids and a pretty tough job.)
I woke up this morning with swollen glands and a scratchy throat, i.e. I think such a vigorous workout whacked my immune system. Do you guys have any tips to keep yourself healthy through such tough workouts? Any ways to boost immune response?
Thanks again for all the help
