Last year I went to the Montreal Salsa Convention and had lots of fun dancing all those 5 nights. I had bought trail mix bars and whole grain stuff and lots of proper health food to keep me energized, etc.
I had taken a couple of days off of work to help me recuperate. But still within a few days after the convention was over I was super exhausted. I couldn't concentrate. During dance lessons I had no strength and got sent home by my teacher. And the Saturday of the next weekend I had a lot of trouble getting out of bed and it didn't happen until 2pm. Mentally I was in great shape, but physically I was done. It took me a couple of months to fully recover.
What are some things I can do to help me recover faster? I'm currently taking BCAA for the gym. The guy at the nutrition store mentioned taking glycogen replenishers which kinda makes sense. But wondering if glycogen depletion is the real issue.
