    Eating enough calories from good whole foods will go a long way in helping your recovery. I also supplement with BCAA's during my training sessions.

    What kind of split do you use? IMO using something like Steve Shaw's Power Muscle Burn or Wendler 531 where you are only doing each body part one day per week helps with recovery. I'm on Wendler now and the two upper body days are 2-3 days apart with the same for my squat and deadlift days. If you're doing a full body routine every other day you probably aren't getting enough rest between workouts.

    KD5NFW is spot on. There are no magic supplements and keep in mind supplements are true to their name and typically work best when you are using them to "supplement" proper diet. While protein is crucial, do not underestimate the power of good healthy fats in your recovery. Best of luck!
