Wow, am I pooped from my full body workout yesterday. I didn't even get to fully finish it.

It was my first time back in about a month and a half, but hot damn!

You adapt to it after a while. Post work out shakes (whey protein) help tremendously in recovering from a difficult workout.

take a bath in epsom salt it helps relaxes the muscles, resulting in no after pains.

That's the last thing you want to do.

Full body workouts = fun

I stopped doing them for a while, but I'm back to doing them. I usually see better overall results and feel better altogether.

Make sure you build recovery time into your schedule. This includes active rest and full rest. Recovery periods are just as important as the exertion phases of high intensity training.

I'm planning on a 2 day a week split (based on Power Training by Coach Robert dos Remedios).

This was workout A, the one I did before posting here:

Clean Pulls: 5, 5, 5, 5
Front Squats: 10, 10, 10, 10
Side to Side Pullups: 20, 20, 20, 20 (makes 10 per arm)
Single Leg back extensions (45 degree): 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10 (4 sets per leg, so that would be 8 sets)
Bench Press: 10, 10, 10, 10
Alternating DB Row: 20, 20, 20, 20 (10 per arm)
Military press: 10, 10, 10

I couldn't complete the following parts because of how fatigued I was. I went too damn hard on the Side to side pullups and drained myself. Big mistake, still paying for it, hopefully will not repeat it again.

Military press: 10
Rotational crunches: 20, 20, 20, 20 (10 per side)
Walk ups: 4 on each arm, repeat until 4 sets are complete.

You adapt to it after a while. Post work out shakes (whey protein) help tremendously in recovering from a difficult workout.

yes, but whey only does so much.

Hmm, may try that, thanks!

Of course. I lifted a lot over the summer doing a 4 day a week split (not full body), and this was my first time back in a month in a half. Went a little too hard, so i can't do the day 2. I'm gonna restart hopefully this coming week.
