  • Best muscle soreness reliever



    Hi all,


    Quick question for you geniuses!


    My fiance LOVES working out - but HATES the next day when her muscles are sore. She's new to working out and lifting weights, so I want to encourage her and not let the soreness discourage her. I was wondering if you all recommend or know about any bath or lotion solution that helps specifically with relieving the soreness after a hard workout?


    Thanks all!

    - Jesse

    BCAA's (Branched Chain Amino Acids)


    When I take it, I can have the most brutal weight lifting session and still feel fine the next day!


    I love feeling sore, though... gives me a sense of accomplishment and a license to eat more in order to "repair my muscles" That's my excuse for binging.

            Have you ever heard of Tiger Balm? In my opinion, it is the best thing for sore/pulled muscles. Its Chinese, and comes in a tiny pot. You can get it from most chemists but it is quite expensive, like 5 for a tiny pot but it will last you years.

                  Oh yeah, I&#39;ve used Tiger Balm for years too

                  The BCAA&#39;s are also a good idea.

                    I find stretching and pnf / foam rollering after my workouts works really well.

                      Stretching, epsom salt baths and a good before-and-after recovery drink. I use Prograde Workout but there are other good ones out there as well. Just make sure you are "feeding" your muscles within an hour of working out.


                      I also enjoy the feeling of a good workout the next day. The soreness reminds me that my body is responding to the workout.

                        Arnica or St. John&#39;s Wort infused oil warmed & rubbed into the sore muscles works well plus exercise to use up all the lactic acid stuffed in the muscles.

                          Stretching helps a lot, also if you stretch before you go to bed at night you&#39;ll sleep better and recover faster. As far as Tiger Balm goes, it&#39;s great, but it&#39;s definitely got a strong scent to it. I tried it once, under my uniform and you could still smell it pretty strongly.

                            BCAA&#39;s - namely glutamine works for me. Apparently glutamine also works in conjunction with fasting http://ajpendo.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/287/1/E1
