- Keep logs
- learn to lisson to your body
- Don't be stubborn and do what works for your body, not your buddies or anyone else
Respect other opinion and maybe try them, but if they don't work (by your logs ) then don't stick to it and find what does work. If it does work (by your logs ) then use it.
Main thing is keep a open mind and learn, find what works for you
, NOT just what looks great on paper or worked for so and so.
