30 Bananas a Day!

I work out and the next day I feel pretty sore. Should I wait till I feel no soreness to work out again (2-3 days later), or can I work out if I'm still a little sore in some areas (so I can work out at least every other day).

In addition, when is the best time to work out? After the digestion of a meal is almost complete? Is it alright if I work out soon after I wake up after having only water, or should I carb up at least a little? 

Tell me what works for you.

The following has worked well for me in days following a workout:

  • Hydrating well with water (I look for this to be my first priority).
  • A mono fruit meal, ideally at least 12 hours from when I ate last (before or after activity, though "earning" a meal has often been a nice experience).
  • Work out/play/exercise (before or after my first meal). 

 

I have followed some of what Frank Medrano has shared on Facebook and he usually trains six out of seven days each week.  If he takes two days off in a week, he prefers the days off be consecutive.

I have often had great work outs on an empty stomach and Harley has mentioned doing up to a half marathon on nothing but water.  Doug Graham has called similiar behavior "earning his meal".

 

As I am writing this, I am reminded of the value I consider myself to have received from reviewing Nutrition and Athletic Performance.  From my persepctive, a worthwhile investment at $18. 

This is THE situation that benefits me the best taking colloidal mineral solution. I can be out of shape, do a 45 mile altitude run in more than rugged conditions, and not be sore at all as long as I take my teaspoon of colloidal (104+ minerals, not just a few electrolytes) several times before, during the run, and every 3 hours till the next morning. My wife and I are always amazed at not being at all sore the next morning after the 50 mile ultra-endurance adventure races. (We are not young)
One year, I did an extreme 42 mile run that in the last half of it took me into and over 7 ski areas, and while both of us were so sore could not get up and down from a restaurant chair that night, not sore at all the next morning.....I followed that up with a 5 mile fun run in the mountains 5 days later, without minerals, and ended up so sore I could hardly do my job for the next several days...
I accidentally discovered this principle 35 years ago when I realized that I was not so sore running distances living in the mountains of Aspen when I had my raw cookies with a lot of high mineral content herbs in it.
I also strongly agree with the first two posters in this thread. My first ultra endurance run was done during a water fast (the first 42 miles of the "Leadville 100"). Because I had not trained well, and had not done much running, I was "done" at that point from foot blisters. I do stay really well hydrated ALWAYS.

Paul Bragg talks of his desert crossing challenges on water only, while his (much younger) challengers drop in 5 miles or less in the heat as a result of talking salt.

I think different types of training call for different nutritional needs.  If you're doing exercises that tax specific muscle groups enough to be sore on a regular basis then I would say that you'll do better having a meal in you before the workout.  Generally nutritionists tell us that it takes 2-3 hours to digest a meal, so You'll want to work out within that digestion period, and some point following your workout (within an hour or so) give your body more sustenance to run on.  For a raw fooder, I would say there is no time you shouldn't be eating. 

And although muscle soreness isn't an indicator on your muscles being recovered, yes I would give it a couple days.  If you are lifting weights and targeting a specific muscle group, give it a week.  If you are doing calisthenics, still give it a couple days.  In the couple day's in between you can work a different body part.
