Just out of interest, trained quite hard last night (Monday - BJJ and MMA Sparring 2.5hours) and if normal weeks are anything to go by, will not feel up to full strength again until Thursday! I can run today and tomorrow, but would not be able to lift weights or spar/roll effectively due to muscle ache and lots of aching/bruising. So i would say my recovery time is about 2-3 full days. I consider this slow recovery having spoken to others at my club (or are they just blagging to look 'ard)?!
What sort of recovery time do people experience?
What can i do to speed up my recovery time if anything?
