How to become Captain America After Surgery Part 7
Published by Mike Leng on June 6th, 2012
I realise it’s been a bit since I checked in so I though I would whack up a quick update on where things are at. Nothing much has happened really apart from just waiting and healing. Got an appointment with the specalist Tomorrow to see how things are healing and to find out if I can get this damn sling off and start physio. So whole I’m waiting for that I thought I would whack up some random thoughts about shizzle.
Muscle loss is GOING to happen despite what supplements you are taking. Obviously this is due to the lack of stimulus that the muscle recives. This doesn’t mean you can’t slow it though.
RDA (recommended daily allowences) should be thrown out of the window for any athlete. However if you are spending more time sat on your arse, you might want to stay a bit closer to these numbers.
Walking outside is still one of THE BEST things a person can do in any situation. It burns calories, relieves stress, gives you vitamin D and helps recovery. Start walking your dog/cat/rabbit/fish right now.
Want to speed up the effectiveness of your pain killers? Try taking them before a meal with a small amount of orange juice and avoid lots of fat in the meal.
If you’re waiting till in you’re in pain before you take said pain killers you’ve already lost the battle. Take a smaller over all daily dosage but dose regularly.
WARNING, COMPLETE BRO SCIENCE AHEAD! When you are faced with the awful situation of losing muscle mass I believe it is benificial to spend a few mins a day flexing each muscle. I don’t think this does anything for muscle prevention but I do think that by keeping neural pathways open, it will make the re gaining of this muscle easier. Again, I have no proof for this.
If you’re taking pain killers then a fibre supplement and AT LEAST 3 litres of water a day are your friend!
If you want to suceed at anything start as soon as possible, read lots, say thank you, take chances, build relationships.
The amount of muscle that actors lose very quickly between movies makes me think steroids and gives kids the false idea that muscle gain is easy. For the record I know that the actors work insanly hard to gain that muscle, even if the price is lessend a bit.
Charles Polliquin has lost his mind. How are people taking him seriously anymore?!
Hope you are all well, speak soon.
