    How do you recover from sparring soreness?

    Massages? Supplements? Saying **** it and train while sore anyway?

    Depends how much sore you are dude. You should be taking glutamine regularly, though (that helps with recovery).

    If you can get a regular appo with a massage therapist (plus monthly/bimonthly check ups with a chiro), that will do wonders. Get a massage therapist to work the erector spinae (the muscles that run along your spine), neck, glutes/hips, shoulder blades, traps and the triceps. Man, you feel like new and ready to rock-and-roll the day after.

    If you get a massage therapist, make a precise list of what bothers you the most and have him/her work on it.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I massage myself right when I get hurt. I find that makes a massive difference to how sore I'll be the next day. Right now, I'm training injured, and that's a regular thing for me.

    If nothing hurts, you're doing something wrong.

    Track coach always said to stretch very well. It works really.

    If it's just soreness and not pain from injuries... soak in a hot bath before going to bed.

    Side question. Cracky, seeing as I can't PM as I'm a noob, and seeing that this is still the Newbie discussion, how did you get fired from Bullshido staff? Just curious

    I compared the staff to the German army allowing Hitler to take power. It was hilarious. Trolling the mod forum was good while it lasted.
