thanks for sharing
Thank you for these ideals to help with muscle soreness
Thank you. This article is really helpful to me.
Pain is pain and I don't hold with it.
pretty interesting article
I too suggest a hot bath w/ Epsom salts for soreness the day of the workout & the next day as well if needed. Alternating heat & ice works well for specific muscles. That being said, it is also important to begin each workout properly hydrated & to stay that way no matter the weather. There are recipes online for cheaply making your own electrolyte drinks w/o artificial flavors or colors.
Taking Calm, an easily absorbed magnesium supplement, really reduces odds for cramps & can be added to the electrolyte mixture. I also learned for myself that a banana a day eliminated nighttime cramps which were deep in the thigh. It can be hard to keep calcium, potassium & magnesium in proper ratio.
