What did we change? Just about everything....
We have changed to a 'clean diet'. It is such a seemingly simple concept but who really knows or gets what 'clean' actually means?!? My wife came across some great books that have really enlightened us and I have found some great supplements. We are eating more fruits, vegetables and whole foods. We are avoiding fatty foods, sweets and other processed foods. I honestly can't explain it all as she is the cook, I just love the food! Our new way of eating has definitely helped my recovery and my ability to perform in my workouts.
I also have been supplementing my new great eating style with some amazing supplements. I take a post workout recovery shake after lifting and drinking a rehydration drink right after my grappling workouts. I feel like I'm getting better recovery and know that my body is getting more of what it needs when it needs it most.
These adjustments are helping me as I matched a personal best in my deadlift and have been adding consistent poundage to my bench press.
