Combat Post-workout Muscle Soreness
Updated: Feb 29, 2020
You just finished a great workout. Your endorphins are flowing, you challenged yourself to a new level, and you are proud of yourself for making your workout happen. Heading home you begin to feel a little muscle soreness. You wake up the next morning and you can barely move your legs and arms. You take a dose of ibuprofen and hope you can make it through the day.
We've all been there. While traditional remedies such as ice, stretching, massage and non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can certainly help alleviate muscle aches, the right foods can be powerful in helping increase recovery time and decrease muscle discomfort. This month I am sharing real life solutions to eating more anti-inflammatory foods that can speed up recovery and combat muscle soreness after an intense training session.
