Who Says Women Can’t Be Strong?!
So if you ever want to minimize post workout soreness, or help relieve it once it’s set in, there are a few things you can do: 1) Drink a LOT of water to keep your muscles hydrated and help flush your system, 2) Make use of hot/cold showers – 30 sec as hot as you can stand, 30 sec FULL cold, repeat up to 7 times, 3) Keep moving – stretch, get a soft, gentle rub-down or massage, use a foam roller, 4) Use a pain relieving rub like Icy Hot or Tiger Balm – won’t take away the soreness, but it will help make you feel a little better, and finally, 5) Take a pain reliever like Advil – I’m not much for promoting the use of pain relievers, but sometimes, when nothing else is working, it sure does feel good!
