Hi, I am a 30 years old guy that tries to play basketball (playing in a basketball league) again after sitting a few years in front of a computer.
One of my major problems (besides that I am totally out of shape) is a very slow recovery.
Before anyone gets upset I want to mention that I read the other topics on the forum about recovery such as Post Workout Routine.
What I mean by slow recovery (and I always had this problem)?
I’ll try to describe this the best I can. It seems that I can run a little bit more than my other team-mates in terms of lungs and energy.
However, about an hour or so after any match I feel like a train hits me. I breathe very hard and I am totally tired. Is there a way of training that can prevent that?
Yesterday, I counted, I did almost 100 high-intensity sprints of about 20-30 meters (the other team beat us with 100-59) and then I felt so sick that I promised myself I will do something about it.
By the way, there was a 54 years guy in the other team that made me feel very old by comparison.
Thank you for your time!
