I am a competitive gymnast and since going primal in November my muscles are sore a lot. Not quite ALL the time but enough that lately I feel like I am getting weaker with each and every practice. I don't practice much for a gymnast-about 7 hours a week-and other than gymnastics and going up and down stairs like 20 times throughout the day I am very sedentary (in front of a computer). A month or two ago I thought the soreness came from the fact that I haven't really been tumbling since June of last year due to injury and between August and October of last year I did hardly any gymnastics (though I did other physical demanding work on a farm). But lately even when I do the Primal Fitness exercises (I do that around once a week but I won't do it if I don't feel like it) I just can't do as many as even a few weeks ago. I think I eat quite a bit...these last few days I have been eating a crazy amount (like a can of coconut milk with berries+1/4 of a free range chicken+ 1/3 pound of butter...in ONE meal granted I overstuffed myself a quite a bit and did not really feel like eating a post workout meal or anything later). Yesterday's practice I had more strength and energy compared to usual so am I just undereating? I am also wondering if weight training would be beneficial and is there any that I can do at home?
No announcement yet.
Muscles sore all the time
