If you have been hitting the weights a lot recently, most likely you are going to have a sore day or two. A big misconception is that you should not work out at all when you are feeling sore. That is not always true. Sometimes it helps our muscles to heal if we keep moving, and keep stretching, instead of doing nothing. Doing nothing can make our muscles even sorer because they can become stiff. So, as much as you may be dreading even getting off the couch, try some light activities to ease the pain and speed up the recovery process.
What To Do:
Stretching: This is one of the most important things to do before and after a workout. Before a work out you'll want to do some Dynamic stretching. After a workout, you will want to do some Static stretching. Review our blog How to Use Dynamic and Static Stretching.
Eat & Drink: You can eat and drink your way to recovery as well. Sometimes it is helpful to boost the recovery process by consuming protein and plenty of water.
