Best treatments to relieve a body thats been trained to high hell for the last 10yr

Recommended Posts

Soz i think this might have been asked before but couldent find the thread

basicly iv never done any treatments/remedies to help a overtrained body, all i have done is rest eat, the basics.

im pretty sure there are many different treatments that could help but dont know where to start and what would be best, iv heard of acupuncture and physiotherapy, a long list would be perfect!

 My symptoms and the reason for my interest is: been training 10 years most of the time pushing my body over the limits, iv been getting quite a few aches and pains everywhere really but mainly upper body, shoulders, spine and back. Its been going on for ages! It feels like my body needs a good twist and click...

we are upto about 5 weeks lockdown and iv rested 4 weeks and if anything it feels worst, i feel just resting laying down isent what it needs and think it needs something intense but muscle/joint relieving.

as i say a long list of the best most advanced and effective treatments would be so helpfull, im talking about treatments you go out and pay people todo specifically to get my back and refresh me

I've trained for over 40 years and have never had any 'treatments'. To be honest my knees hurt like fvck if I don't train so I'll be carrying on until I snuff it.

Won’t get any massage at the mo mate. All hands on therapist won’t be treating.

On YouTube, try ‘Yoga with Adrienne’. She’s great. She does 5-10 minute yoga sessions and much longer ones. It’s free and it’ll benefit you more than you realise and better than a £35 massage that you won’t get anytime soon. 
 

You can get a mat from amazon for £10-£15.

Maybe a while back but at nearly 60 and had cancer 3 years ago have a guess....

Edit. Fvck, if only I'd stopped for a "treatment" or two along the way??

Continuing training at nearly 60 is good going let alone after treatment for Cancer.

A good deep tissue massage followed by a decent amount of time in the sauna every week.

Swimming helps me with muscle pains.

Perhaps invest in a cheap foam roller for the moment.

This.

I'd find harder to stop training. 

Screw that, 4 weeks with the gyms closed, I'm going to struggle to ever go back.

As for the ops question. Rest and stretching, what else is really needed?

Is that why you carry your ‘man bag’, in case you’re struggling to finish them off?

Nah, I usually go at it naked so I can feel the breeze in my balls. The bag is just for stacking on funny comments about the bag by broke ass blokes haha .

I’ll use my black to help lift those broke ass blokes out of the red if grouping me with others. :thumb

150mg test, 75mg deca per week

50mg proviron, 5mg cialis, 3iu HGH daily 

your vit D and C 

 

or maybe you didn’t want drugs as the answer? Stretch, stretch and stretch some more will help massively. Rugby and lack of stretching gave me short Hammys I used to grunt to get my socks on. Stretching has many benefits
