    well its time for daily doubles again, so what is the best way for recovery

    right now im only taking protein shakes, but
    i have access to an ice bath at the school, and access to a hot tub, sauna, and steam room at my gym.

    Why are you doing doubles?

    That said- ice after workouts, heat in the evenings. Eat right, sleep enough, take vitamin C.

    massage is the best, but only if you have someone who knows what they're doing
