    Epsom salt baths. Sometimes DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) is unavoidable due to change in program or general intensity, but in many cases making sure your magnesium replete can speed recovery and greatly reduce soreness.

    BCAAs (branched chain amino acids). I take 10 g post-workout. I'm pretty sure it works. I still experience some degree of DOMS, but it's not as bad and doesn't last as long as pre-BCAAs. BCAAs are hydrophobic so they won't dissolve in water. I melt some coconut oil and a bit of unsweetened chocolate and mix the BCAAs with that. Add a smidge of maple syrup. This makes a chocolaty paste that doesn't taste too bad if you swallow it quickly.

    This! When I was half marathon training last summer, having a carby meal after long runs really helped. So did a smoking hot shower, water with nuun tablets (electrolytes), and essential oils.

    There is no evidence that any of these things helps DOMS. It's all speculation.

    Getting back into weightlifting I was getting DOMS like nobody's business, especially on leg day.

    Things I've tried (that've worked) that I rotate out or combine:

    Pineapple
    Ginger

    BCAAs
    Glutamine
    MSM

    L-glutamine supplementation really helped me.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
