    Soreness

    Hey guys, I just had a question for ya'll. Is there anything I can do that will help me become less sore? I know stretching and drinking more water and all of that helps but I'm wondering if ya'll have any trade secrets that I don't know about. Thanks

    Me ive been lifting for over 15 years and i love it. Soreness is awlsome but sometimes you come to a point where its a little too much. So i do the following things:

    Things:
    1- at leat 8 hours of sleep
    2- make sure all of my nutrtional values or requierments are met
    3- i take hmb,zma and l-glutamine (some people dislike these but i love them)
    4- i RICE an individaul spot sometimes
    5-take a hot shower then at the end change it to kinda cold but not to cold (hot tubs are nice too after a long day)
    6-good stretching, what do you do
    7-if its a joint problem then you can take glucosamine

    if you want a more precise opinion give me your percise problem spot(s)

    good luck and remember everyone is different so expieriment
    LIFT!

    Active recovery works well. That is, using an exercise that significantly involves the muscle in question, performing it at 30-40% of your 1RM, and avoiding fatigue. Just do enough to get the blood flowing. Light jogging works pretty well for most everything.

    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
