    Its kind of like exedrin with Codeine. Legal to get in Canada but not the US.

    +1 on the rest and more sleep. Its not easy to lose weight, but it becomes way harder if you're hurt (trust me...lol). Train safe and good luck :)

    Dude, the reason you aren't losing weight is probably a result of too much training. Your body is probably full of cortisol and in an extremely catabolic state, so it's eating the muscle and storing the fat.

    ac&c = 375mg aspirin, 15mg caffeine, 8mg codiene. It's a behind the counter drug here in Canada, meaning you have to ask for it specifically. Helps me sleep when im really sore. I get migraines, so I have a thousand different pain relievers.

    If you have trouble sleeping after hard workouts, there are several things you can take which can help. Easy things like cough syrup or gravol. I wouldn't rely on them though. Proper diet, supplements, and a cold shower after training are the best answers.

    Gravol is a medicine to stop an upset stomach, it makes you drowsy. Melatonin is better. I'm talking stuff i take once in a while when i have particular trouble sleeping, not an everyday thing. If you are having trouble sleeping everyday, the answer is likely not drugs (I'm not a doctor! You might want to see one).

    Over training can mess up your sleep patterns. Having a routine that is always changing (I currently work at a bar till 3am on the weekends, and get up to work at a golf course during the week between 5-6am) fucks up your sleep pattern royally. Eating a big meal too close before bedtime has always messed up my sleep patterns, same with taking regular big doses of caffiene. Taking a cool shower after an evening workout helps calm your body down for bed as well.

    great thread, there's lots of focus on training and preparation in our world, and not enough on winding down or taking care of ourselves.

    Taking a cold shower will help muscle recovery.

    At least, it does in my case

    Simple calculation on how much you eat (this is an estimate, but is a good guide)
    Calculate your Basal metabolic Rate (BMR)
    BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x weight in pounds ) + ( 12.7 x height in inches ) - ( 6.8 x age in year )
    Calories needed for extremely heavy work days = BMR x 1.9

    If you are doing that much exercise, and not loosing weight, its one of 2 things. Your diet is shockingly bad, or you're not eating enough.
