This is a question for Jungledoc, probably, but if anyone else has any info, I'm all eyes.

Is there any literature/research regarding aspheresis(donating platelets) and weight training? I donate monthly and I'm wondering if donating might interfere with my recovery. I usually take a day off after donation, but it seems to be a couple of days before I feel like I'm at full power.

Thanks,

Jim

JungleDoc has just finished up his humanitarian mission in the Philippines and is on his way back to PNG. He's currently in Cebu. He gets in the occasional Facebook post but probably doesn't have much time for the internet right now.


After giving blood you will be slightly dehydrated. Sorting that out will make a big difference. The Red Cross says to just stop lifting the day that you give blood. You should be good to go the day after and you should be back to normal within 24 hours. Pay attention to your hydration and see if that doesn't help with your recovery.

Thanks, Stu.

I assume that they draw a unit, extract the platelets, and return the unit to you. I wouldn't think that could have much effect on your training. I don't know about the literature, that's just my thought.
