Sore Muscles

Whenever my work out is not regulated ( i worked out like 3-4 times a week and if I stop that routine), I always have muscle pain the day after I work out. If you experience the same here are tips that could help you ease the pain.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine offers these suggestions to help manage minor muscle pain:
  • Allow your muscles to rest. Don't engage in any heavy exercise while they recover.
  • Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen to ease pain.
  • For the first few days, ice the area. After the first two to three days, apply heat to the sore muscles.
  • As you recover, try low-impact exercises such as swimming, biking and walking. Gradually work your way up to longer and tougher exercises.
  • Sleep, stretch and avoid stress.
