    Muscle sorness

    Just wondering what methods actually work to help muscle repair? I know plenty of rest but I mean short term if you get a particuarlly tough session which really aches. Compression gear seems to have hit and miss reviews and short of pain killers I have no idea.

    Mild activity is the best I've found. Just be careful not to overdo things and add to the soreness.

    For me, rest, solid nutrition and once a month massage therapy. I also do epsom salt baths followed by a natural based muscle cream and I use a heating pad if necessary.

    Also being aware of your body helps a lot. It's about knowing when not too push it.

    For me, a hot shower, some rest, maybe some ibuprofen, and for a certain kind of pain/soreness/tightness (can't really explain how it's different from when I don't wrap) I do use ace bandages as a compression wrap. And then do some of the same work. Maybe not as hard, or as long but use the same muscles again.

    If you're talking about DOMS, just man up and take it. IME you won't get it as bad or at all once your body is conditioned to exercise. Although I have found that stretching properly afterwards and foam rolling does help.

    For me the amount of soreness is directly proportional to the number of reps I did. I could not detect any correletion with strength increase or muscle growth.
    So I have learned to up the weight or make the exercise more difficult and do fewer repetitions if I want less pain. YMMV.

    rest and good food are the best, but there's definitely something to supplementing with magnesium to help with the soreness. and, depending on how sore you are, a little active recovery can make it go away temporarily.
