Natural Pain Relief For DOMS

2 Comments


The easiest way to fight muscle soreness after an intense leg workout is to pop a NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), but people who don’t want to get into the habit of popping pills for short-term relief can choose natural options to help ease pain. When time allows, relax in a hot bath well after heavy training to increase circulation and help dispose of metabolic wastes. Massage also eases soreness and decreases inflammation to increase muscle recovery immediately after training (not immediately after your workout) session. Both these natural alternatives depend on your schedule, but if you can find the time your muscles will thank you. Supplementing with D-ribose before and/or after exercise may also help speed recovery by energising your muscles. As well, calcium and magnesium supplements act as mild muscle relaxants and help prevent muscle cramps.
