    I see that some of you guys lift 3-5 times a week along with BJJ 4-5 times, standup, and cardio! The question I have is how do you guys fight the soreness to do all of this stuff. After a particularly heavy leg or back day my body is just beat for two days, I struggle walking up and down stairs.

    How are you able to still put in a maximum effort at ur classes while lifting at the same time? Should I just go lighter, or are there any supplements I don't take that I should be?

    Your body will adjust with every excruciating day.
    Your mind will adjust to the doubt that you can train thru the minor pain of soreness.

    Soreness is love.

    u have to ease into it too.....start out with lifting maybe 2-3x and bjj 2-3 times a week and then add another workout to your week as your body adjusts, u can't just jump into that kind of schedule

    Im always sore like hell. Worst of all is the soreness in hamstrings and back (after deadlifting heavy) wich makes you stiff like a corpse and unable to snap those highkick doing ma the day after. It doesnt seem to go away either despite having lifted for many years and doing ma for about 1 year.

    ive been sore for pretty much the past 3 weeks. if you keep the volume right youll be able to train through it. i also feel like ive been hit by a truck, its so hard to not max at every oppurtunity.

    also eat like theres no tomorow. Keeping myself full 24/7 when i'm sore always gets me over it faster. I'll drink 4L of 2% milk in one sitting if i'm sore. Hell last night i had 4L of milk and half a 16' pizza on top of it.

    Good advice. You body gets used to it and the soreness slowly goes away. Stretching after a tough workout will help remove some of the lactic acid built up in your muscles. Lactic acid is one of reasons you're sore. A good cool down and stretching helps.....well....it helps me anyways.

    and if your really bad, instead of missing a days training, wrap up and go for a sweat run. Nothing hard, just sweat ya bollocks off. That should end no end

    I always thought the average person couldn't drink a gallon of milk within an hour, the body doesn't put out an enzyme fast enough or something. Either its an urban legend, or are youre some kind of milk guzzling freak Yomon.

    might be a little of both, It does take me up to an hour to do it though.

    I kind of figured it would, as I recall you're not a big guy. I could see someone like Carnal doing it, but for most people 200 lbs and less I think it would a bit of a task.

    Contrast showers and using heat rub to loosen up sore muscles before a session. even then a judo session the day after deadlifts is still pretty painful.
