Three Tips To Squash Muscle Soreness From Your Exercise Routine
January 2, 2013

If starting a fitness program is part of your New Year's resolution this year, you're sure to suffer from some muscle soreness.  Below are three tips to prevent this from derailing your fitness goals:

  1. Start Moderately - If you start out with too much too fast, you're bound to experience pain and/or injury that in the long run will compromise your fitness goals.  Instead, focus on creating the new habit of exercising on a regular basis.
  2. Topical Analgesics/Salts - Apply topical analgesics to your muscles such as China Gel or Bio Freeze to help release endorphins and decrease the pain.  Bath soaks with epsom salts will draw lactic acid out of the muscles and soothe the body.  Add a few drops of essential oils such as peppermint for more benefits.
  3. Massage - Massage stimulates the lymph system and moves lactic acid out of the muscles.  Get a professional massage or have your partner give you a massage with long strokes toward the heart on the arms, legs, and back.
