I have a client who has post viral fatigue syndrome. Is there any published recommendations for training someone with this condition?
Post viral fatigue may respond well to iron supplementation along with a good anti-oxidant. Following periods of viral infection, it is very common for the body to assume an "anemic" state in which the iron does not enter the red blood cell. This will affect the cell's ability to transport oxygen, thus affecting the body's ability to recover following training sessions.
