    Any personal trainers on HF? (human)

    I'm hoping someone can answer this. If I google it, all I get are results for protein bars for men who body build. I recently had a lightbulb moment in terms of my jumping position. I'm finally staying balance over my hips and hovering over the saddle instead of in front of it. While it's fantastic, it's putting a lot of stress on my 43 year old quads and lower legs. They don't seem to be recovering from the exercise. I recently took 3 days off from riding due to a snow storm, and today was unable to hold my 2 point for long because my legs were quickly fatigued. I'm thinking there are some important vitamins or minerals missing from my diet, but as I said before, all I get for my research are protein bars. Does anyone know what foods are best to eat to help build muscle in the first place and also help them recover more quickly?

    Well that stinks. I eat most of that stuff regularly already. I hope this isn't purely an age thing. I finally find the sweet spot but can't physically hold it??

    Well, Protein IS best for the muscles. Are your joints hurting too? Because you could take a joint supplement which might help. Try stretching after your ride, because that will help your muscles recoup faster. And if you go a few days without riding, maybe you can do mini workouts at home (like wall squats) to help you maintaine your muscles. Also, don't go long periods without eating. Your body will think you're going to starve, and it keeps the fat and starts eating at the muscles instead. If you regularly snack on healthy foods, your body will realize you're not starving, and attack the fat instead of the muscles. Also, I always recommend taking a multi vitamin/mineral supplement daily, just in case.

    Hope this helped. Good luck!
