4 Popular Recovery Methods - Should You Be Using Them?!

Interesting comment Denis.

I have to agree that there are many differing outcomes and ideas of what works for who. As for the exact science of what exactly one should do before, during, after training differs from person to person (or at least the answer they feel is correct does).

Your example of training when fasting or having fasted... the type of training makes some sense.. but also little sense for precisely the reasons you highlighted. Many people reach there own form of barrier with their regular training when it comes to eating and timing. Eat too early before training and you risk going into the session with a slight rumble that could alter your focus... eat too late before training and your digestive system will be going into overdrive coping with the food that is now sitting inside you - less effective and the risk of barfing.

I remember being told to hit the sauna after a work out as it encourages blood flow to all the extremities etc... now we see the pros are being told to sit in a glorified freezer after their sessions...

I suppose the problem us mere mortals have is that we do not have people who are highly paid and highly in the know telling us what to do... we have to do our own figuring out and own thinking... who knows if in the long term effects on the modern player will make us glad we did our own thinking, or wish we had someone to think for us?

#Throwback Thursday: That time Sebastien Chabal knocked Marc Giraud out with a slap

Agen 12 - 6 Lyon...

"the fiery number eight unnecessarily took offence to Giraud grabbing him"

Unnecessarily to the writer of this... I personally think if this sort of stuff happened more often then people would learn to keep their hands to themselves....

Daniel du Plessis awkwardly sent to the sinbin whilst knocked out

I agree, standing in front of a train and saying "THIS IS MY TRAIN TRACK"... and expecting the train to stop in time is a pretty stupid thing to do - or it's a "Do at your own risk" type of thing....

Same as jumping into another player!

Friday Funnies: James Haskell and Owen Farrell Best Mates Compilation

Is RD going to do an article about Joe Marler taking time out of rugby to play the part of Fleshlumpeater in the latest BFG?... Perhaps he had a voice over, but it was certainly him, I recognised him...

Aaron Cruden gets stuck in Highlanders celebration after brilliant try

Hahah, totally agree with jimmy, he had a good smile on his face - probably had a laugh with them after the game about it.

I know in the past players have kicked off about stuff like this...

It's cheeky, but it's all part of the niggle..... or is it giggle?
