Decreasing Post-Workout Soreness

You had a great workout yesterday. Today you feel a little stiff, but great! You wake up tomorrow and whoah.... Experiencing DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)? Here are a few tips that may help speed up your recovery: _________________ 1. Do some light to moderate intensity cardio. Increasing your circulation helps deliver the nutrients your muscles need for recovery, all while helping to remove the waste left behind after a hefty workout. ____________ 2. Foam roll or self-myofascial release (SMR). In short, you are giving yourself a massage and working out those contracted/knotted up tissues. Seasoned foam rollees know it’s not always comfortable, but can be worth it. ___________________ 3. Hydrate. Supply your body with the appropriate electrolytes and fluids your cells need to recover and chances are you will feel much better much sooner. __________ As always, check with your doc to make sure you have no contraindications to foam rolling or exercise programming. _______________ #pitfitnessalbany #albanyny #doms #fitnesstips#musclerecovery
