What to do while your muscles are recovering? (soreness)
Does anyone know of any way to “take care” of your muscles, days following workouts?
I don’t mind the soreness, but I was wondering if I can help the muscles recover better by either keeping them warm or putting an icepack on them or do the Ice/heat thingy
This part is from webmd
“Exercise physiologists and athletic trainers have not yet discovered a panacea for DOMS,” says Draper, “however, several remedies such as ice, rest, anti-inflammatory medication, massage, heat, and stretch have been reported as helpful in the process of recovery.”
btw, DOMS=delated Delayed onset muscle soreness (Which i just learned)
I’m lifting heavy weights and just want to maximize the results
