A Simple Way to Improve Mood and Speed Recovery

Sometimes you’re about to write a post. Then you Google something and discover/remember that someone has already written it. (It’s common in the blogging world to just re-word/rip off the other person’s writing. That’s not how we do things here. So…)

Check out 9 Restoration Tips that Will Make You Stronger¬†at EliteFTS.com. (If you’re not already readying EliteFTS, make it a habit.)

    The sleeping section in this article is full of shit. If the average American went to sleep when the sun set and woke up when it rose they’d be sleeping upwards of 13 hours a day. The great Arnold Schwarzenegger said sleeping 6hrs a day is ample and any more than that you aren’t getting enough done in your day.

      Let’s say an “average American” is sleeping 6 hours a night. Same American is watching TV/cruising web for 5-6 hours.

      Most people would be far better off if they slept instead of watched television.

        I can agree with that. But if you sleep six hours a day, and you stay focused on using the other 18 hours to strengthen your mind, body, and soul, the possibilities of success are endless.

    6 hours a day is defnitely not enough recovery time if you’re actually doing hard workouts 4-5 times a week.

      Tell that to Arnold Schwarzenegger. I think I’d go with his advice over anyone else’s seeing that he was a 7 time Mr. Olympia. Read his six secrets to success and he mentions it. D&P posted it recently.

        Arnold Schwarzenegger was on roids from the age of 16, of course you’re not going to need as much recovery as a natural then.

          Almost everything he said in there was subjective. When I take naps I feel groggy and it takes me about two hours to feel regular again. When I sleep over 6 hours I wake up with less energy and more lethargy. I sleep on my stomach and have great sessions with no pain. The heater STAYS on in my place.

          But regardless of all of that, I can attest to the fact that the masturbation thing DEFINITELY works. :)

    Rising with the sun and sleeping when it sets would only leave a few hours a day awake here during the year’s shortest days in winter. I can see how it work in some areas of the world.

    Disagreements about how much sleep to get notwithstanding, I too read a lot of EliteFTS. A lot of solid training advice as well as general life stuff without too much product pushing.
